Barry Goldwaler, H-Ariz. Goldwaler had sued Ginzhurg and. Facl magazine for libel over an article during his 1964 presidential campaign that con- tended Goldwater had a para- noid personality and was unfit for the presidency. A U.S. District Court jury in southern New York returned a verdict for Goldwater awarding him in compensatory dam- ages and in punitive damages. The 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the verdict and Glnzburg asked the high court to review the case. The court today by a 5-2 divi- sion denied the request in a one-line order. Justice Hugo L. Black, with whom Justice William 0. Doug- las agreed, dissented and said he thought the verdict shoulld have been summarily reversed.

The burned man's clothing caught on fire and his wife was making an effort to extinguish the blaze when "Dobber" Dodson of Jlaskell happened by and assisted her.

To lose South he said, "means the delerioria- lion of a whole big and secure area, namely Ihe free world. "Iliglit at the moment when the Republic of Vietnam needs Ihe support of the allies in this fierce struggle, the government is nol submissive. Neiiher will it one day follow the allies' policy-if we see that such policy or the liming of it is not in ac- cordance with our national leresls." He did riot hint ai what possi- ble differences he had in mind. Thieu was addressing a din- ner meeting of the Association of Vietnamese Newspaper Edi- tors. Members of his Cabinet, foreign newsmen and members of diplomatic missions also" at-' tended. Among them was U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker. The main thrusts of his speech were aimed, at those here and abroad who say he is running an essentially one-man regime, and at the frequently often press. He said: "In South Vietnam, while the soldiers are dying on the battlefields in order to. pre- serve democracy there are a number of people who seem to forget that we are in wartime, and are helping Ihe enemy wilh their statements and activities. Chief Justice Warren E. Bur- ger took no part in the case. Ginzburg's lawyers conlendcd that the judgment "casts a dark shadow" upon freedom of the press and that the senator had proved neither that tlie material in Die article was false nor that Ginzburg was motivated by malice. In another decision the Court ruled 5 to 2 today that a park deeded for while use in Macon, Ga., can be turned back lo pri- vate heirs to keep Negroes out. Justice Hugo L. .Black, speak- ing for the majority, said under Georgia'law the park may be turned back in deference lo Ihe wishes of the benefactor that not be integrated.. The decision involves Bacoiis- field Park-in. Macon, which was established under (he will of Ihe lale U.S.- Sen. Augustus Oclav- ius Bacon. He specified lhat it be operated for "while women, white girls, white boys and while children." In 1986 the Supreme Court ruled lhat if Hie park was lo be a public one Negroes could not be denied access. But Georgia courts followed by approving the return of the park to Ba- con's heirs. This is the decision upheld today by the high court. Black said: "We are of Ihe opinion that in ruling as they did the Georgia courts did no more than apply well-settled general principles of Georgia law to dclermine the meaning and effect of a Georgia will." ncy said. "Only in lhat event will she consider II." Mrs. Romney has been men- tioned as a possible candidate by House GOP Leader Gerald R. Ford, among others. Michigan Republican leaders will meet later Ihis week in SI. Clair in an attempt to agree on a candidate. Romney declined lo endorse anyone else specifi- cally for the nomination, and said he would not attend the consensus meeting this week. "I am very hopeful Ihey will unite behind another candi- he said. Romney declined to elaborate on his statement and would not say under'questioning whether and how far he has left the door open for possible candidacy. Michigan GOP leaders figured the former governor was the strongest candidate they could field against the popuar Harl and they wanted his decision quickly. Although he never really indi- cated he wanted Ihe Senate, Romney agreed to consider the race. He mel earlier this month with Michigan Gov. William Milliken; the slate's two most important members of Con- gress, House GOP Leader Ger- ald R. Ford and Sen. Roberl P. Griffin, and national Commit- leewoman KHy Peterson. Although he asked Diem for more time lo make up his mind, sources indicated the four party leaders left Romney feeling lie would remain as HUD secre- tary. Romney had constantly said publicly he was committed to the Housing job and his aides worked hard to dispcll specula- tion that he was frustrated wilh the relatively low priority given his department, by the White House. Speculation .cropped up..about, Mrs. Rqmney's dacy. about 10: days'- ago 'alter Ford said'she" had "some real 'potential as a Republican nomi- nee for Ihe U.S. Senate." The secrelaiy was quoted ear- lier in the Detroit Free Press as saying Mrs. Romney "wouldn't get involved unless it's impossi- ble for the party lo get behind some other coasensus candi- date." William E. Brennan, chief jus- lice of the Michigan Supreme court, was also considered a lop-runner until he declared last week that he would fill out his term on the bench. Another possible candidate for the nomination is conservative state Sen. Robert Huber of Troy. Another name mentioned is that of Rep. Donald W. Riegle of Flint.

He was found hanged shortly after noon. Meanwhile, Rivera's sister, Mrs. Miriam Leohc, said in an interview that the youth tried twice in December lo turn himself in al hospitals for treatment of his addiction bul was turned away because of overcrowding. McGrath said that Rivera, who was arrested Jan. 15 on a charge of possessing a dangerous weapon, spent the next six days in a special observation riormilory and on the seventh was returned lo a regular coll on the advice of a prison physician the who found him stable enough for change. McGrath said Rivera might have succeeded in commiting suicide anywhere in the prison and that his belt, shoelaces and other potentially harmful articles were removed before he was found hanging by strips torn from a blanket. McGrath said the decision lo remove Rivera from the special observation dormitory was "entirely a medical judgment" and that he was not prepared lo say 'the psycholo- gist was wrong in making it. Rivera was the ninth person to commit suicide in a city prison in the last 13 months.
