Page 9 Platform Writers Gnd For Battle By EDMOND LEBRETON SAN FRANCISCO (ARJ—Republican platform writers completed the first half of their 1964 campaign document early today. It reportedly was met with satisfaction from supporters of both Sen. Barry Goldwater and Gov William W. Scranton. However, backers of the rival candidates for president predicted a fight later in the day when the IOO • man platform committee convenes in closed session again to write the last half of the platform. Goldwater forces remained in firm control of the committee’s operations with the Scranton backers fighting stubbornly to rescue some of the underdog candidate's planks from the scrap pile. Meeting behind closed doors for about five hours, the drafters wrote a statement of belief for Republicans and an indictment of the Democrats. This was the less controversial half of the document. The committee arranged to take up recommendations on foreign and domestic affairs. Scranton is pushing for certain provisions in these fields that are unacceptable to the Goldwater forces. Committee Chairman Melvin Laird of Wisconsin said the text of the completed half of the platform would be issued sometime during the day for release in Sunday morning papers. Apparently the civil rights issue had been injected into a discussion of general principles, which were to be set out at the beginning of the document. Also, numerous committee members were reported eager to add accusations against the Johnson administration to the platform. Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania. convention manager for Dismissal Motions Ignored, Fine Levied In Train Tieup Dover Mayor C I.eMoyne Lathy yesterday gaveled down several dismissal motions and fined the conductor of a Baltimore & Ohio Railroad train $50 plus $6 20 in court cost- for blocking the crossing at N.

Billyer of Lorain, but he was not present at the 90-minute hearing in Council Chambers. E. A. Howard of Akron, trainmaster, appeared in place of Billyer. A decision to appeal Luthy’s ruling has not been made and Howard indicated that the B&O would pay the fine—if it is paid. Atty. James Stephenson of New Philadelphia, representing the railroad, opened the hearing with a series of dismissal motions. Solicitor Mario Curs! rep- resented the city. torsi moved that the word “unnecessarily” be inserted into the affidavit as stated in the city code and Luthy ruled it in over Stephenson’s objection. The dismissal motions follow': On grounds that the notice to Billyer to appear in court listed the incorrect crossings and did not mention the crossing in question; On grounds that the affidavit See FINE LEVIED, Page 9 Gov. William W. Scranton, told newsmen that unless the committee restores some of the Scranton material excluded from the platform, a fight oil the convention floor is likely. Supporters of Sen.
