Talking briefly at the airport before entering a series of local strategy sessions, Locke refuted claims by GOP State Chairman Tad Smith that the Republicans would win the governor's chair by a margin of votes. Favor Connally' He said that at the time of the party conventions in September, the Beldon poll showed Connally was favored by 59 per cent of the voters, while 23 per cent were for Cox and another 17 per cent re- mained undecided.

Forecasters in the U.S. Weather Bureau at Miami urged all inter- ests along the South Atlantic Coast from north of Jacksonville to Cape Hatteras, N.C., to keep in touch with developments expect- able in the next two days. The 5 p.m. (EST) advisory said wide-eyed Ella had generated peak winds of 80 miles per hour in squalls. She was traveling north-northwest from a location centered near Latitude 29.1 north. Longitude 75.6 west or 330 miles east of Daytona Beach. Ella's "eye" of circulation was described as extremely large, 80 to 120 miles in diameter. Gale winds extended 350 miles north of the storm's center and 175 miles southward. Winds and seas were forecast to increase gradually Wednesday night from Jacksonville to Cape Hatteras, reaching gale force from Georgetown, S.C., to Cape Hatteras by late Thursday. The storm's northward tack en- abled rescheduling of the Ranger 5 rocket shot at Cape Canaveral for a televised peek at the moon's surface.

His first lecture was entitled 'In Finding Out Who I fol- owed by "In Doing What Comes and then, Wednesday Ste LECTURES, Pg. 3-A, Col. 3t ready for precautionary meas- ures. Small craft from Cape Hatteras, N.C., to Cape Canaveral were warned to remain in port. Dunn said seas and tides were growing and would worsen Thursday. Ella's erratic course, shifting from westerly to northerly and back, was due to a tug-of-war being played with a high-pressure ridge along the northern United States border. Dunn said the ridge was block- ing Ella from moving to the north, but that a series of low- pressure troughs were responsible For the intermittent attempts at northerly movement. He said Ella probably would lose the latest low-pressure trough early Thursday and make anoth- er jpg to the west. The forecaster refused a predio ion on the storm's eventual path, but raised a possibility Ella might stay at sea. By MILTON BESSER UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) General Assembly elected Morocco to a seat on the U.N Security Council over Nigeria on Vednesday, and thus turned back bid by black African nations to kill the 1946 "gentleman's agree- ment" on allocation of seats. The decisive vote on the second was 73 to 35 one more han the required two-thirds ma ority. Morocco was elected to succeed the United Arab Repub- ic, thus upholding the tradition hat an Arab or Middle East country should retain the council ;eat at issue. On the first ballot Morocco won 7 and Nigeria 30 votes with sev- ral other countries receiving scattered support. Under assem- ly rules the second ballot was cstricted to the two main con enders. No difficulty was encountered n the election of Norway, Brazil, nd thj Philippines as other non- crmanent members of the 11- ation council, the U.N.'s highest political organ. All were by sec- et ballot. Norway was chosen to succeed rcland and Brazil to succeed Ihile for two-year terms.
