With all delegates chosen, it now becomes a battle between Sen. Barry Goldwater, of Ari- zona, wlio seeks to keep his big lead, and Pennsylvania's Gov. William W. Scranton, who hopes to derail the senator's bandwa- gon before the first ballot. There will be no fresh infu- sion of voles from other quar- ters now that Montana Republi- cans have chosen their 14 dele- gales. As expected, they were pledged to Goldwater. The Breakdown The Associated Press survey of the delegates based on primary commitments, instruc- tions, pledges and stated prefer ence shows this first ballot breakdown: Goldwater, 694. Scranton, 138. Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, 105. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, 45. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine, 15. Former Vice President Rich- ard M. Nixon, 8. Favorite sons, 84. Uncomitted 219. Polical Calendar While most of the attention this week will be on the Scran- ton vs. Goldwater struggle, there are other events on the po- litical calendar. For one thing, Democrats will convene in Minnesota, Montana, Oklahoma, Utah and Washing- ton to choose delegates to casl 148 votes at their national con- vention beginning Aug. 24 in At- lantic City. Even though he hasn't formally announced his candidacy, President Johnson is expected to be the choice of al delegates named this week.

Ernest I: Dean and Calvin Ramplon see the guvernatprial endorsemeni and neither is expected to ge 80 per cent, setting up a pr" mary election contest. Scranton launched his bid fo delegates last week, meetin with state delegions from Kan sas, Missouri, Minnesota, Color ado, Kentucky, Massachusetts Rhode Island and New Hamp shire. He picked up some votes, bu for the most part they ha either been uncommitted or the favored Gov. Rockefeller. Golc water also lost a few votes bu more than offset this by gainin support from other delegate, who previously had been as uncommitted.
