attacked Some lowans are incensed ByW EARL HALL Editor GlobeGazette CHICAGO How far should Republicans go in placating Nelson Rockefeller That is the question which is troubling Iowas delegates here as they prepared to greet and listen to President Dwight D Eisenhower its no secret that some of the Hawkeye group are incensed over the secret meeting held be tween Nixon and the New York Governor and by the pressures subsequently exerted by the Vice President to revise the party platform in a manner ac ceptable to Rockefeller While lines arent precisely drawn in this matter those who supported Sen Taft in 1952 and are friendly toward Sen Barry Goldwater for the vice presi dency now are the ones most critical of the Nixon course NOBODYS GOING to pres sure us Washburn Steele of Cherokee Iowa
