  • Description

    THE UNITED STATES, AND THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION. A SEVERE, PERHAPS BITTER, FIGHT WAS THE CONCLUSION AS GOVERNOR NELSON ROCKEFELLER OF NEW YORK STATE AND ARIZONA'S SENATOR BARRY GOLDWATER HIT THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL AT THE WEEKEND.

    THEY ARE EXPECTED TO BE THE PRINCIPAL CONTENDERS FOR THE NOMINATION. THEIR FIRST TRIAL OF STRENGTH COMES ON MARCH 10 WHEN THEY COMPLETE IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PREFERENCE PRIMARY - A KIND OF POPULARITY POLL.

    GOVERNOR ROCKEFELLER WAS IN CONCORD ON SATURDAY TRYING TO WOO NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS. HE ROUNDED OFF A 19-HOUR FLYING TOUR WITH A HANDSHAKING VISIT TO DOWNTOWN CONCORD. AT ONE POINT, HE STEPPED INTO A COFFEE SHOP AND HAD A CUP WITH STARTLED PATRONS.

    WARMING UP TO THE CAMPAIGN, HE ATTACKED SENATOR GOLDWATER'S POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY. HE ACCUSED HIM OF WANTING TO END THE PROGRESSIVE INCOME TAX, END THE AMERICAN FOREIGN AID PROGRAMME, AND END AMERICAN PARTICIPATION AT THE UNITED NATIONS.

    MEANWHILE, ON THE SAME DAY, SENATOR GOLDWATER FLEW INTO WASHINGTON - 24 HOURS AFTER ANNOUNCING HIS INTENTION TO RUN FOR NOMINATION. HOBBLING ON CRUTCHES BECAUSE OF A RECENT FOOT OPERATION, HE WAS GREETED BY A CHEERING CROWD OF BANNER - WAVING SUPPORTERS.

    ALREADY HIS FOLLOWERS ARE SENDING OUT POLITICAL PAMPHLETS, AND LATER THIS MONTH HE IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN A SPEAKING TOUR OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. IN HIS OPENING SHOT, HE ACCUSED GOVERNOR ROCKEFELLER OF BEING MORE LIKE A DEMOCRAT THAN A REPUBLICAN.

    SENATOR GOLDWATER, AN OUT-AND-OUT CONSERVATIVE, REPRESENTS THE RIGHT WING - SOME SAY THE EXTREME RIGHT WING - OF THE GRAND OLD PARTY, AS THE REPUBLICANS ARE KNOWN.
