that could lead to unsettling fights on the floor of the convention which opens next Monday Only once has Goldwater publicly abandoned his low keyed approach That was when George Parker of Washington D C a member of the plat form committee asked how he couid consistently and con scientiously enforce the civil rights law in light of his vote and arguments against it Goldwaters voice rose both in
