Sees ‘Open’ Convention

Herter's Name Sure To Be Placed in Nomination, Says

White House Aide

By Lee Nichols United Press Harold E. Stassen pre dicted yesterday that Gov

|Christian A. Herter of Massa-

chusetts would be placed in nomination for the vice presidency at the Republi- can Convention despite strong support for Richard M. Nixon among party leaders

Stassen WTOP program he convention convention’ as a result of his leampaign to substitute Herter for Nixon as President Eisen- hower s running-mate this year

Stassen, the President's dis armament adviser, said he thinks Mr. Eisenhower himself has not made up his mind on the vice presidency but prefers an “open convention’ and will wait until all the “facts are in before making up his mind

He also disciosed the names of all eight Republicans he said were included in a poll of senti- ment for a running-mate for the

ent

This iz th. poll whch Slassen has said showed an Eisen hower-Herter ticket would be 6 per cent stromger than an Eisenhower-Nixon ticket Stassen has already revealed his name was on the poll along with those of Herter and Nixon

The others, he said. were Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.. Presidential Assist- ant Sherman Adams, Treasury Secretary George M. Hum phrey Senate Republican Leader William F. Knowland (Calif.) and Gov. Arthur B Langlie of Washington.

Stassen said all except Nixon and himself were regarded “favorably” as potential run ning-mates with the Chief Ex ecutive. He declined to say in what order the others were rated, except to say Herter ranked highest.

Stassen reiterated poll verified there “strong wegative’ factors against his own vice presi dential candidacy and for that reason he had taken himself out “as firmly and categorically as possible.”

He said that like the famed statement of Gen. Sherman. he (Stassen) “would not accept the nomination” even if it were offered. He added he is like- wise “foreclosing any consid. eration” by himself of the Presidency and Vice Presi dency in 1960

He also cited another which he described as “Wageearner Forum” con ducted by Dr. E. R. Smith. as showing that 34 per cent of wage earners questioned op posed Nixon's candidacy for re election as against 43 per cent favorable to the Vice President

He added that this poll of both union and nonunion wage- earners had been right on Tru- man vs. Dewey in 1948 and Eisenhower vs. Stevenson in 1952

Stassen’s “dump Nixon” pro posal lras caused a political up- roar that was climaxed last week with Herter’s announce- ment that he himself would nominate Nixon in the belief that Mr. Eisenhower favored

Officials conducting the defense tests say that certain safety requirements prevent absolute simulation of an ene my air attack.

Gen. Earle E. Partridge. chief of the Continental Air Defense Command. has cited the impossibility of using countertadar equipment of the strategic bombers in the mock raids. If the bombers “were to turn on their elec tremic countermeasure (—CM) equipment. they might jam not only the warning system of ground and airborne defense installations. but also the navi gational equipment used in commercial air traffic.

Special arrangements must be made well in advance even lo permit the attacking bomb ers to operate without running lights during a test

Obviously one of the weakest points im the present incom piete defense system is the “hele” in Distant Early Warn ing Lime (Dewline). Official« have estimated that it might be as much as two vears before the radar stations of that chain aiong the northern rim of the continent are ready for opera then

Curiously. one of the best in- stances of warning came from that area where there is no ex isting radar. Late last year SAC bombers made @ series of “strikes” from the direction of the Arctic and from the Pacific.’
