of Harpers Collier Saturday Evening Post Red Book and New York Times Magazine Both are under 200 pages andj either canbe read in a single evening As a matter of fact both can be if you are willing to do a little skimming through the parts already known to you There are some diverting car toons out of the past in both volumes to foreshorten the read ing stint A reviewer in the Wall Street Journal was impressed by the degree to which the two prim ers seemed to cover the same ground Even the cartoons are similar It must be a case of the authors looking over each others shoulders BENDINER in White House Fever employs the light touch At times he seems almost to lose himself in his own clever ness In the chapter headings theres more than a hint of what lies ahead For example Anyone Can Be

pullandtug over their platform particularly the civil rights plank The split between the party moderates and liberals over the civil rights stand was so great that a convention floor fight ap peared in prospect unless Vice President Richard M Nixon the allbutcertain nominee for president can mediate the mat ter before it comes up in the Convention Wednesday NIXON SAID at a news con ference that the civil rights plank is unsatisfactory so far as 1 am concerned Nixon said he will insist on inclusion of plank giving approval of lunch counter sitins Negroes have been joining in Southern cities In explaining his civil rights stand Nixon said Negroes who purchase other merchandise in stores should not be denied the right to sit at lunch counters in these stores This practice is unjustified and must go the expected GOP presidential nominee said Nixon winged into town from Washington shortly after 11 oclock and was greeted with i rousing airport demonstration mainly from young Republi cans NIXON HAD already aligned himself for a strong civil rights plank Before leaving Washing ton he told a news conference he would back a floor fight if necessary for a strong plank But there was considerable grumbling in the party over what some conservatives called Nixons surrender over the weekend to New Yorks Gov Nelson A Rockefeller During an allnight session o CHANCE of RAIN North Iowa

Hickenlooper for veep CHICAGO Ml Iowa Repub licans went into the opening session of the partys national convention Monday behind their newly chosen favorite son for the vice presidential nomina tion Sen Bourke B Hickenlooper was enthusiastically endorsed for vice president at a caucus Sunday LATER IN THE day the lowans had a date with Vice President Richard M Nixon the overwhelming choice for the presidential nomination to ask his consideration of Hick enlooper as a running mate Charles Wittenmcyer Iowas national comnutlceman said he doesnt ll be know if Hickenlooper placed in nomination But nothing would make us happier The the Platform Committee mod crates succeeded in toning dow a civil rights plank shaped t the Nixon Rockefeller state ment of principles of last Satur day morning While its wording was not dis losed the plank was reporte to contain a mixture of mod erate and liberal proposals ANOTHER PROBLEM fo Mixon was a stand by a group of GOP governors that ther should be an open contest fo the vice presidential nomina tion By tradition a party presi dential nominee ordinarily ha a free hand in naming his own running mate There has been every indication that Nixon in ended to exercise this priv ilege although keeping silent a the man he would tap Speculation over N i x o ns choice has centered on US Am bassador Henry Cabot Lodge o Massachusetts and Sen Thrus on B Morton of Kentucky the GOP national chairman Delegates and visitors surgec nto the stockyards arena for he first convention session at 10 am It adjourned two hours ater with the second session lated at MONDAYS

two surviving crewmen of the plane for trial as spies The other three crew members are missing and presumed dead will depend on Nixons attitude HICKENLOOPER the dele gation chairman left the cau cus room when fellow lowan started talk about endorsin him It was a complete am utter surprise he said later I told them I was compli mented by the suggestion Wittenmeyer said a vote was taken on the motion an needless to say it was unani mous Many of the 100 dele gates alternates and visitor present from Iowa applauded on B47 affair UNITED NATIONS N Y he United States as serted Monday it has scien tific proof that Soviet fighter planes deliberately maneu vered a US RB47 off its course and shot it down over international waters US delegate Henry Cabot Lodge die not seek council condemnation of the Soviet Union Instead he submitted a resolution calling on the Security Council either to name an impartial factfind ing mission to investigate the incident or submit the entire matter to the International Court of Justice IN A HIGHLY dramatic speech he produced two maps to demonstrate his points One was of Western Europe showing the planes route from England toward the Barots Sea the other a de tail map of the Kola sula area with a red arrow showing the position of the Soviet fighter plane which Lodge claimed maneuvered the American craft from its course What actually happened was this Before it the plane reached the point more than 50 miles north of Svatoy Nos at which it was scheduled to turn northeast a Soviet er pressed in from the sea ward side and tried to force the plane off its course and into Soviet territory Lodge said The Soviet fighter was successful in forcing our plane off its course and in de laying its planned turn to the northeast It was not success ful in forcing the plane into Soviet airspace It caused our plane to make a detour That detour is shown by the green line on the chart The pre scribed course is shown by the black line THIS ASTONISHING and criminal fact is established beyond doubt by the evidence of our scientific devices which followed the RB47 through all the events I have described Somebody Lodge said lied about the incident Now we wonder why the Soviets have presented so many distortions about this Perhaps the Soviet air force was reluctant to admit to Chairman Khrushchev that the aircraft could hot be shot down over Soviet for the good reason that it was not therefore did not inform him the facts V CHICAGO HAS no counter at traction tugging at convention delegates quite as formidable as Disneyland which
