    FILM SHOWS HIM AT HOME WITH HIS WIFE.

    MR.ZUBER WILL ENTER THE PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE PRIMARY ELECTIONS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, WEST VIRGINIA AND POSSIBLY OTHER STATES, INCLUDING CALIFORNIA AND ILLINOIS.PRIMARIES WILL BE HELD IN SEVERAL STATES BEFORE THE NOVEMBER, 1964, POOL TO DECIDE THE NEST PRESIDENT.THEY GIVE VOTERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO INDICATE WHICH OF SEVERAL CANDIDATES UNDER CONSIDERATION BY A GIVEN PARTY THEY PREFER.GENERALLY, A CANDIDATE WHO SHOWS HIMSELF A SUCCESSFUL VOTE-GETTER IN PRIMARY ELECTIONS STANDS A GOOD CHANCE OF BECOMING THE PARTY'S NOMINATION IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ITSELF.

    MR.ZUBER WILL RUN IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY AS AN INDEPENDENT IF THAT STATE'S LAW PERMITS; IF NOT, HE WILL FIGHT FOR THE REPUBLICAN (OPPOSITION) PARTY NOMINATION.REPUBLICANS NEW YORK STATE GOVERNOR NELSON ROCKEFELLER AND ARIZONA SENATOR BARRY GOLDWATER HAVE ALSO ANNOUNCED THEIR PARTICIPATION IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY.

    MR.ZUBER SAYS HE DOES NOT EXPECT TO WIN ANY OF THE PRIMARIES.ALTHOUGH NEGROES FORM ONLY ONE PER CENT OF THE NEW HAMPSHIRE ELECTORATE, HE IS STILL HOPING TO GET AT LEAST 10 PER CENT OF THE POLL, WHICH, HE SAYS, WOULD INDICATE A STRONG FEELING BY WHITES FOR INCREASED CIVIL RIGHTS ACTION.
