This la what he Mid, In the se-
quence of his thinking:
1. Tha majority of professionals
don’t want a contest among Re-
publicans for the nomination.

come the opposition of the pros

rank • and - file Republicans a
chance to choose between him and
Nixon by going into sate primar-

Republican nominee for the presi-
dency In IMS and Rockefeller can
like it or lump it
He didn’t like it That was plain
from the unfriendly phrasing of
his announcement that he had
withdrawn from toe running. And
this conclusion is one shared by
Associated Press news analyst
Writing from his vantage point
hi Washington. Marlow looked at
the Rockefeller announcement this
Although Rockefeller’s with-
drawal leaves Nixon unopposed
for their party’s presidential nom-
ination, toe governor never men-
tioned Nixon s name.
Rockefeller, in fort, didn’t even
promise to support tha Republi-
can Party or its nominee. The
most he was willing to say was
that he expects to. Newsmen tried
to get him to say specifically Sun-
day whether he would back Nixon.
But he replied he would not go
beyond his statement Saturday
which anid, in part, "I expect to
support the nominees, as well as
the program, of the party in
Further, it is possible to rend
into Rockefeller’s words the idea
he will be a critical thorn to both
the Republican bosses and the Ei-
senhower administration before
the Republican convention opens
in Chicago July 25.
Rockefeller, in stepping aside,
at no place indicated he felt toe

cans preferred Nixon over him or

Bi-State Political Offensive
Both Texas and Louisiana can expect aggressive po-
litical offensives in I960 from the chemical process
industries. . . .
So states the lead article in the currant issue of
Chemical Week magazine. It goes on to say that what
is about to take place in that connection in these two
states may set the pace for similar action throughout
According to the magazine, this program of political
action by these companies* executives involves selling
industry’s side” to the chemical plant** own employes,
hiring men with political know-how to represent in-
dustry at the state capitals, and sometimes seeking
a direct hand in political affairs by running for office
The article says that few (tales parallel the eccentri-
cities of Texas and Louisiana politics, but the basic
forces that have spurred the industry people into action
are the ones that have been causing concern to business

NEW YORK (AP>—As tha fran-
tic 1950s draw to a fretful close,
the pundits look beck on this dec-
ade of doubt and try to explain its
meaning to us.
We have rend a number of their
high-sounding reviews, and lis-
tened to others. They all did a
good job of turning the pages of
world history—that is, for a visitor
But they seemed to miss a lot
of those small personal details
that made lift in the last 10
years so meaningful to the man in
After all, the fact that Africa
erupted (n revolution or the Soviet
Union landed a rocket on the
moon, does not impress many of
us so much as the fart that we
became middle-aged. We remem-
ber that in 1950 we still climbed
the stairs two at a time, and re-
alize at the dawn of 1960 that we
now look around for an escalator.
We don’t even pushashardgoing
We don’t even push as hard going
through a revolving door.
Here are a few other things that
made the 1950s memorable to
At the start of the decade there
were few things you could buy
with a penny, and at the end of
the decade there were few things
you could buy with e nickel.
The younger generation grew
foller, and found they were mak-
ing bus Mats smaller.
Man learned to copy his cave-
man ancestors, and began cook-
ing his meals in the back yard
over a fire.
Woman went in for frozen foods,
and learned how to start dinner
with an ice pick instead of a can
People built two-car garages—
then started buying small car*
that would fit into a doghouse.
Parents discovered it was easier
to obey their children rather than
to try to boss them.
It became possible to Mod a girl
through college for only slightly
more than It took for her grand-
father to buy a 10-room house oa
a five-acre iot.

13 year*, state expenditures have shot up 600 per cent
in Texas, 800 per cent in Louisiana.
But tiia problem is intensified by the 111* of the
petroleum industry. The oil glut has forced Texas
wells to be held down to only nine operating days a
month, and that means a bite into serverance tax rev-
eaue—which last year yielded more than 25 per cant of

Birth Rate Trends Vary Widely
On# of the major reasons for predictions that the
1960s will outstrip the decade just about to end in eco-
nomic development is that the baby boom is continuing
This is true not only in the United States, but in
Canada as well. It also is true on other English-speak-
ing nations. Yet in many countries throughout the
world the birth rate has fallen almost continuously
from the relatively high levels reached shortly after
the end of World War II.
Statisticians of the Metropolitan Insurance Co. have
developed this contrast in population trends, but are
unable to account for it.
Births in recent years have broken all previous rec-
ords in the United states and Canada, and in Australia
and New Zealand as well In all four countries, the
birth rate in the last decade has been approximately
one-third greater than that recorded just prior to the
Over the same period, Finland experienced a sharp
decrease — about one-third. Sweden, Denmark, the
Netherlands and Czechoslovakia recorded reductions of
about one-quarter. More moderate declines of about
one-sixth were recorded in France and Norway.
About the only clue to this trend is an indication that
ft i> following the pattern of improvement in economic
conditiona. For example. West Germany also has shown
a rising birth rate recently, but in Communist-domi-
nated East Germany it is siill declining.
