Barry Gets 42 Votes In Ohio
By JACK BELL and HARRY KELLY
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Republicans haul up the curtain today on their 1964 convention as the stars of the show, Arizona Sen. Barry Coldwater and Gov. William W. Scranton, battle angrily backstage.
Coldwater, far in front and hunting the “few more” delegates he thinks he needs to lock up the presidential nomination, was descried as "boil mg mad” at Scranton's latest effort to stop the fast-moving Coldwater bandwagon.

A most interesting visitor in Dover is Buzant C. Bedrown. who with his wife is visiting their son. Yahe P. Bedrown. and family of 124 S. McKinley Ave , Dover. The son is Bastant manager of the Har-chem Division of Wallace A Tiernan Inc.
The elder Bedrosian has been in the business of buying, selling and manufacturing oriental rugs 59 years, having been born in Marsovan, a college town in Armenian Turkey, 90 miles inland from the Black Sea. He is still active in the oriental rug business, having his office at 276 5th Ave., New York City.
Bedrosian came to America w hen he was 20. He has spent all his life since in New York City, except such times as business has taken him to other parts of the world. He started in the rug business immediately upon arriving in America but later did spend 5 years in Bulgaria managing a factory. It was there that he married in 1921.
Bedrosian’s trade has also taken him to China where he spent 8 months, to India for 18 months, to Afghanistan, the Near East, and many of the countries of Europe. Most of his business is wholesaling in large cities of the U S. although some orders go to South America, but the high duty there limits the market. Here in Ohio rugs are sold to such stores as Halle Bros, in Cleveland and Lazarus in Columbus. He also has wholesaled rugs to dealers from coast to coast.
Bedrosian on one occasion sold a $75,000 rug to J. P. Morgan Sr., who promptly gave it to the Metropolitan Museum in Bm RUGS. Pas** 15
