Three workmen were weld- ing a copper pipe in a 'small space above a false ceiling of the first floor, and above the telephone switchboard room. Rockefeller in California BY RICHARD P. POWERS Washington Rep. John W. Byrnes (R-Wis) said to- day peace and economic stability will be the two main issues in deciding whether the Republicans retain control of the White House in 1960. The congressman from Green Bay, Wis., said he believes Vice President Richard M. Nixon will be the GOP presiden- tial nominee and Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York may wind up as his running mate. Rockefeller has stated he will not accept the nomination the No. 2 spot oh the ticket. Byrnes made the comments before flying to Wisconsin with Nixon. The two will at- tend a testimonial dinner to- night at-Wisconsin Rapids for Rep. Melvin R. Laird with Nixon the main speaker. Possible Ticket The way it looks right now, Byrnes said, Nixon will be the Republican presidential nominee next year. He listed Rockefeller, Rep. Charles A. Halleck of Indiana, the Re- publican leader in the House, and Sen. Kenneth B. Keating of New York among those with good chances for the No. 2 place on the ticket. Byrnes said Republicans will be benefitted next year if relations with Soviet Russia maintain at least their cur-1 out more than 100 strong, re-l commonwealth of nations Montana Covered by Heavy Snow Blanket Spring Session Seen On State Tax Issue Panel to Query Nixon About Foreign Policy Vice President to Appear on Program At Chape!

This became evident Wednesday when GOP members of the senate and assembly turned a cold shoulder on Demo- cratic Gov. Gaylord Nelson's plea for passage of a stopgap revenue raising measure. In a message to a joint session of both houses Nelson asked for adoption of a withholding tax or an increase in basic in- come tax rates, plus a boost in cigaret, package tobacco and bank and loan association taxes.
