Barry Coldwater in California’s Republican presidential primary seems to have pleased at least one Democrat —President Johnson. The chief executive hasn’t reacted directly to Goldwater’s narrow win over Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York. How- Barry 'Hides' Alter Victory WASHINGTON (AP) - In the winner’s circle, Arizona Sen. Barry (Coldwater left the talking to his campaign spokesmen today and slipped out of sight at an undisclosed hideaway. Jubilant over his victory In Tuesday’s California presidential primary, Goldwater’s aides talked of a first-ballot victory at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco. Coldwater stamped his approval Wednesday on a victory statement prepared by his campaign staff, inviting his beaten rival, New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, to help unite the GOP for the November election fight. “There are still roads to cross See BARRY, Page 6 ★ Rockefeller lo 'Fight On' ever, a couple of straws in the wind, as it were, seemed to point up the response in the administration camp. L Johnson aides, who normally mirror the President’s attitudes, declined today to reject suggestions that Goldwater’s triumph was pleasing to them. Quite the contrary, they beamed. With 32,828 of 32,861 precincts reporting in the California primary, Coldwater had 1,091,123 votes to Rockefeller’s 1,031,762. 2. The President himself took another indirect swipe at Coldwater—something he obviously delights in doing—in a speech Wednesday at New London, Conn. Many observers saw this as further evidence that Johnson would relish an autumn encounter with the Arizona senator. Before he was assassinated, President John F. Kennedy left little doubt that he wanted Coldwater as his 1964 opponent.

Nelson A. Rockefeller says present indications are that Sen. Barry Coldwater will win the Republican presidential nomination on the first or second ballot at the national convention—but “I’m staying right in this to the end.” “There’s a long time between now and the convention in San Francisco and it’s hard to tell what is going to happen,” he said. At a news conference Wednesday, Rockefeller discussed his loss of 86 delegates to Coldwater in Tuesday’s California primary and looked ahead to the Republican National Convention opening July 13. In addition to declaring he wall continue his campaign for the Republican nomination, Rockefeller reiterated that the GOP convention must adopt a “forward-looking” platform. He said he intends to fight for such a platform. Rockefeller, in campaigning against the conservative senator from Arizona, has said this year’s Republican platform should be similar to the liberal platforms of 1956 and 1960. He said at the news confer- See FIGHT ON, Page 6 By JOHN M. HIGHOWER WASHINTGTON (AP) - Pres ident Johnson kept tight secrecy wraps today on what—if any— new moves he is planning to make to step up the fight against Communist forces in Southeast Asia. A White House statement issued Wednesday night gave some indication, however, that Johnson and his advisers have decided to soft-pedal talk o!: drastic action such as enlarging the war in Viet Nam, at least for the time being. Johnson received a report from Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara on the results of two days of intensive policy review which they con ducted at a conference in Hawaii earlier this week. Several days ago officials had indicated that the conference would very likely result in presidential decisions to deal with what then appeared to be a se rious crisis in Southeast Asia due to Communist advances primarily in Laos. When Wednesday night’s meet Store Is Burglarized The Sheriff’s Department was notified yesterday by Edward Miller, owner of a service station and store in Ragersville, that the front door of his establishment had been forced open and $20 worth of merchandise had been stolen. Iris Theft' Just Mixup “It was just a case of misunderstanding,” according to Dale A. Short, 27, of 317 E. 4th St., Dover, who had charges of stealing $3,000 worth of Iris against him dropped in Southern District County Court yesterday. James York of Canton, who filed the theft count against a “John Doe” last Thursday, appeared in court and asked that the case be dropped. York and Short split the court costs of b$10.70 assessed by Judge Richard Musgrave. Short, who said he had been told by York that he could have some of the Iris on a plot near County Road 64, related that he, in fact, had taken some. He turned himself in at the Sheriff’s Department when he heard that a theft charge had been filed. He was held overnight in County Jail last Thursday and was released after posting a $1,000 bond. Memorial Day and York’s work kept the case active until yesterday. ing ended, George Reedy, presidential press secretary, issued this statement: “The secretaries met with the President about an hour. They reviewed the situation in Southeast Asia in light of the consultations in Hawaii which were held to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our program.” There was no hint of enlarg ing the war to include military action against Communist North Viet Nam or of putting U.S. military forces into Thailand or as signing reinforcements to the Southeast Asian area generally. Reedy declined to answer any questions, explaining to report See MUM, Page 6 Baltic Driver Truck Leaves Dies, Road BALTIC—Charles A. Eiler, 63, of here, a truck driver for General Clay Products Co., died of cerebral hemorrhage early yesterday afternoon while driving on Route 93, three miles north of Shanesville. The truck left the highway and continued for some distance through fields on the Menno Beachy farm before stopping. Eiler was pronounced deac after being taken to a Sugarcreek physician’s office in Lingier ambulance. Coroner Philip Doughten attributed death to the hemorrhage. The State Patrol investigated the incident. Born near here, Eiler was a son of the late Adam and Mary Snellenberger Eiler.

Cook, superintendent of the Ohio Highway Patrol, said today that “Ohio motorists are to be congratulated — they have proven that they can curtail accidents, even on a peak traffic weekend.” Cook, reviewing the accident statistics for the Memorial Day weekend, said he was pleased the death toll did not live up to the expectations of 23 traffic fatalities. “While the nation set a record death rate, Ohio was well below the anticipated total,” Cook said. “Sixteen dead is still an awful price, and to the families and relatives of those who died, the weekend is just as bad as if the expected 23 had been killed. But we can be thankful that there are at least a half dozen families that were scheduled to feel the terrible impact of a traffic death, escaped this fate.” who could be counted on to offer voters a sharp alternative to Kennedy policies. Johnson lieutenants, in private conversations, seemed to leave little or no doubt that the new President, too, would delight in campaigning against Coldwater.

Barry Coldwater of Arizona is only a whisker away from a first-ballot victory. Washington state Republicans open their convention and delegates to the GOP National Convention will be chosen in two Colorado districts Friday. By Saturday night some 65 delegates will be chosen in Washington, Colorado, Alabama and Hawaii, and political observers will be better able to gauge the impact of Goldwater’s victory in Tuesday’s California primary. That victory gave him 86 delegates from the Golden State, boosting his first ballot strength in The Associated Press survey of delegates already chosen to 446. That contrasted with a claim of 454 by Goldwater’s headquarters. A spot check Wednesday of political leaders in most of the 15 states and Puerto Rico, where a total of 258 delegates remain to be chosen, showed See PHASES, Page 6 Face Trials In Juvenile Case Two Bolivar men, who pleaded innocent today to charges of contributing to the delinquency of minors, will face jury trials in mid-June. Edward McRobie, 25, denied he spent 2 nights with a 15-year-old girl of RD 2, Dundee, and that he had intimate relations with her in the presence of others. Lloyd Hanlon, 20, denied charges involving a 16-year-old girl of RD 2, New Philadelphia. The 2 men who were brought to the County Jail on Tuesday night appeared for arraignment today before Juvenile Judge Ralph Finley. After their plea, Judge Finley advised them to seek counsel and returned them to jail under $2,000 bond. In a separate hearing later, the 2 girls admitted they had spent the nights of May 23 and 30 with the men and had relations with them. Finley returned them to the detention home. He said he would not decide their cases until after the trial* of McRobie and Hanlon. The judge then ordered that a jury be called and set the trial dates as June 18 for McRobie and June 19 for Hanlon.
