lowans paddle toward Nixon political boat is sinking DES MOINES Re publican leaders have turned to ward Richard M Nixon as a narrow favorite for the presi dential nomination i They have turned sharply away from Sen Barry Goldwa ter of Arizona the over whel ming favorite before President Kennedy was slain The switch stems from a gen eral feeling that much strength Goldwater had been expected to carry in a race against Kenne dy would be neutralized in a contest with new President Lyn don Johnson As Lucas County Republican chairman Marion Coons of Lu cas put it Goldwaters boat sank when Kennedy was assassinated be cause another representative from the southwest was brought in who can ht classified as more conservative than his pred ecessor although perhaps more liberal than Goldwater Of 51 Republican county chair men answering an Associated Press poll after the assassina tion 17 felt Nixon now is the strongest Republican candidate compared with 14 for Goldwa ter 10 for Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge and for New York Gov Nelson Rockefeller Six declined to name the strong est candidate now This was in sharp oontrast to an Associated Press poll prior to the assassination in which 54 of 57 county chairmen partici pating named Goldwater as the strongest candidate The county chairmen also have radically altered their views on the likely winner of the GOP nomination In the preas sassination poll 38 of 57 named Goldwater the probable winner Only 11 of 51 named him in the second poll Meanwhile Nixons strength has increased In the first poll only me chairman thought Nix on would win the nomination compared with 15 in the second poll Votes for Lodge as the like ly nominee increased from one to seven while Pennsylvania Gov William Scranton went Irom one to two Gov Rockefeller fell off from six in the first poll to only two in the second Fourteen chairmen declined to hazard a guess on the nominee Twentynine chairmen said they had changed their views on the strongest candidate and like ly nominee since President Ken nedys death Fourteen said they had not changed and eight had no comment We are fighting a middle of the reader not a rank liberal such as Kennedy

Goldwater may not be the man now agreed Fayette County chairman G W Aspin wall of Hawkeye He noted that President Kennedy and Goldwa ter represented the opposite side on race problems as well as national economy Johnson and Goldwater are of the same thought on some issues Another chairman commented that it would appear President Johnsons all out drive for econ omy has hit the fancy of many people especially the farm folks Nixons strength commented Iowa chairmen is based on his familiarity in the minds of vot ers his close race in 19fiO his experience his moderate view point Thinks pink
