Onlted Full MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JANUARY if 1HO Tc Copf CoruItU Four M Drastic slash Russian military A running mate for Nixon Qualifications will outweigh balance idea By EARL MAZO New York Herald Tribune News Service is one lure pointer for speculation about the vice presidential nom inee on the Nixon ticket now that Gov Nelson A Rockefel lers pullout leaves the big re maining question for Republi cans In approving a running mate Richard M Nixon would all bul ignore the tradition of political balance and stress the quali fications he considers vital in the man to serve with him should he be elected Nixon is proud of having changed the vice presidency from a gavelpounding opera tion in the Senate to a position of importance and responsibility in the administration SHOULD HE BECOME chief executive Nixon would undoubt want to assign to his vice president m any specific re sponsibilities in the diplomatic executive and legislative fields In fact the vice president in a Nixon administration would have even more to do than the record amount of work and re iponsibility President Eisenhow turned over to Nixon The tradition of picking a vice presidential candidate to bal ance the ticket as a voter at traction stemmed from the be tief of many politicians that th balance should be along geo graphical and perhaps even lib eralconservative lines T h i year there is much talk of a Catholic issue thus extend ing the balance to religion lines Nixon reportedly doubts the value or even the wisdom o stressing balance in picking nominees for the nations twt highest offices THUS BECAUSE HE is from California in the Far West i no reason to eliminate Govs Mark O Hatfield of Oregon and Willliam E Quinn of Ha waii as his possible running mate It is known that Hatfieli and Quinn would b among five governors on an list of names Nixon would lik as running mates if he drew u such a list Theother governor are Christopher del Sesto o Rhode Island Cecil Underwoo of West Virginia and Willia Stratten of Illinois Also on such a mythical lis of Nixons high re gard for them as public figure and be si members of the Eisenhowe cabinet four senators forme Secretary of Defense Neil I McEIroy and the President brother Dr Milton Eisenhower who accompanied Nixon to Rus sia last summer THE CABINET members re garded as potential nominee are Ambassador Henry Cabo Lodge Secretary of L a b o James P Mitchell Atty Gen William P Rogers Secretary o Interior Fred Seaton Secretar of Health Education and We fare Arthur S Fleming an Treasury Secretary Robert Anderson The senators are Kenneth Keating Hugh Scot and John Sherman Coo er and Thruston B Morton both of Kentucky There is much talk in Wash ington about the possible nomi nation of Rep Charles A Hal leek the Republican minority leader of the House Nixon associates believe how ever that if a member of the House of Representatives was chosen it mere likely would be Rep Gerald R Ford i close friend of the vice presi dent Khrushchevs aim A Western stampede WASHINGTON UP Soviet Premier Nikita S Khrush chevs missilerattling speech was viewed here Thursday as an effort to stampede the West into accepting disarmament and a nuclear test ban on Russias terms Officials also believe that the portion of his speech claim ing Russia will slash its armed forces by 1200000 men appeared be a bid to regain the peace offensive initiative he lost to President Eisenhower as a resultof the Presidents recent goodwill trip to Europe Africa and Asia Some observers also Felt that the overall tone of Khrushchevs utterances took some of the luster off what Soviet propaganda has called theCamp David spirit U S officials did not discount the Soviet leaders claim of powerful new weapons but they expressed primary interest particularly on the diplomatic level in the timing and content of his speech They said it appeared obvious he was trying to build up an atmosphere of invincibility which might persuade the United States and the other Western powers to agree to his disarmament and nuclear ban proposals This country has taken the position that the proposals fail to carry adequate inspection and control provisions On capitol hill Sen Henry M Jackson DWash saw speech as a shrewd psychological move in the cold war He also stressed however that the Russians never bluffed the past about new weapons
