    Background: THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION SOUNDED A THUNDEROUS "NO" TO FIVE DETERMINED EFFORTS BY MODERATES IN THE PARTY TO ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE PARTY PLATFORM. IT WAS A CLEAR VICTORY FOR SENATOR BARRY GOLDWATER.

    THE HIGH POINT IN A MARATHON SESSION CAME WHEN SPECTATORS IN THE GALLERIES AND SOME DELEGATES ALMOST DROWNED OUT GOVERNOR NELSON ROCKEFELLER OF NEW YORK WITH BOOS WHEN HE SPOKE STRONGLY FOR A PLATFORM AMENDMENT THAT WOULD HAVE REPUDIATED THE RIGHT-WING JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY AND OTHER EXTREMIST GROUPS.
