EDITOR Po00ans And Polls, You (an'l Predict Eihr N leekefeller, r all his appaxen political liabilities, must be regarded as the come back guy of the year if ,be  the fortheoRKng Caltifornia Ropuboan prhnmT. Rocky, ,as the headline writers like to call him, is nw regarded as having a fighting cha.nee to win the Cal4ornia election. If he does, hks victary will have several imirlica- tions regarding the GOP. First of all, .t should prove once and for all tlmt Barry Goldwater, the mma who s seems likely to get tke nomkmtiong ",as not a good voter getter. Goldvcater, to be honest about the whole thing, has not sored many zeacular prirrrary wins, even though he has amassed a sizea, ble total of delegates. Goldwater's stxength seeans to lie m the party delegates who have quietly been .going alxmt theh" husiness. It remains to be seen, however, if the Arizonan 'has strength among the Re- publicam rank and file, 'irstead of the hard core right wing die ,harris. At this stage it doesn't agpear so. Rockefeller, on the other han.d, represents the left of center, or moderate faction araong the Republicans. This element, meet Repub- ans agree, covers She greatest nmnerical strength in the petty. St most Republicans were ready to turn to Goldater, mainly because of Rockefel- ler's domestic life, which  never private for a politician. A year or so ago ,he was the odds-on favorite to take the omina,tion in a breeze, but his divorce .seemed to knock the props from under him. Rocky, however, chzxe to fight R out, as ,his boxer-knickname implies, and  recnCt victory in Oregon was a magnificent al triumph for the New York govmar, if, in- deed, a costly one money-wise. Money, to be sure, is not one of Rockefeller's problems. A victory in California next Tuesday will ,most assuredly put Rockefeller back as the front runner when the Repubticans hold their convention in San Francisco firs sum- mer. Most Republicans are more ttmn willing to support Barry Goldwater as the pary rmminee, bu his more rabid supporters are provirrg to be ,his greatest detriment. Sorm trooper tactics end pseudv flag saluting techniques at Democratic meetings by the Birchers .have not helped his image, as long as he continues to accept their SUlrp<rrt. These people shoalld act be pictured as to- day's modern Republican, and Gldwater's lack of popuhr suirport at the polls by more updo-dte Republicans seems one way o,f indicating this. If Gold.water gets ,the rminatioa, this sum- mer the party's tmwer will fall into control .of the right wingers, apparently against the wishes of the majority of Repbl,fcans. If lockefeller, or Richard Nixon (who looms  larger and larger in the background), or William Scranton eanerges as the party nom- inee, it shoutd be evident the party has come to grips with the 20th century. Next moath's California primary will pro- vide most of the ,answers o these questions. 40 Years Ago 1924 The memory of Cheney's war dead will be hormred by various patriotic organizations of the city gt special services to be held Sunday and on Memorial day.

Jessen Soil Conservation Service Fbr e<mserving soil mad wat- er--gvatect tlmt watershed, strp that gu, lly. Gullies can, and 6o lead to enormous soil erosion and wber losses in our watersheds. _an3r gu'es join together to form lme gouges rote our preeiotm lmad. They a'Ilow the water to move through the watershed at a fast pace, causing deeds dur- hag the spring snow me:t and run,off, with drought du_ng the summer mo.rtths. Many tons of topsoil can be removed per acre in an amaz- ingly short period. On a .hill- side in West Virginia, a 75 foot deep cacRy about .the size of a footbafl field was gouged out r just four hours of rain- fall. After the combining of many gulfies, a cany 100 feet deep that swaR)wed a school house and so, feral tarm btfitdings was formed in Stem art Cotrnty, Ga. On a 'larger scale, imagine how the G,mnd Canyon got its start. The mud- dy waters of tlae Latah Creek gives us a close-to-home view of tolxai,1 beirg washed away. Gullies Have Chance One way ,to stop the move- ment .of gtfllies is to remove or prevent the cause. The place to stop soil wste is at its source. The minute the soil is lect bare or exposed during the run{fit season, gullies haare a chance to begin. Many gul- lies appear and much erosion takes place. Pper farming methods o,r practices should be gtrirlied on the uplands f the watershed. By ptating grass anti/or trees 'and shrubs on. the steep upper ,slopes, and by i'nstalng water pene,trating and/or sae water dispol methods on the farm- able slopes, the water runoff ca be held beck with safe limits and eroNon cart be pre- vented. WaterSheds protected by plant cover have a gradual runoff of melting sraw anld rain, so that streams are clear and full the year rouxtd. The naion"s eogand soils and water SUples are at stake. There will he a greater need fo' food and water in time to come, fr our ever- increasing population. Con- servati, oa should be made niov to provide far those needs.

High scholas- tic achievement and physical fitness are, of course, prime daes for admission to their factors in gaining admittance e]asses ertering in June and to the academies .and in stay- July of 1965. Many boys from ing there. my Fifth District in Washing-[ Academy Quotas ton Sate 'have already applied to compete for one of my 1965 ] U. S.

I h'ave ha my office the catalogs for all he Academies and wil! be happy to send t:hem and any ,other information desired upon request. IMPORTANT: Only residents of the Fifth Congressional Dis- trict may compete for my nom- inations. They may, if they wish, Simultaneously apply through any other source of nomination available to them, with the exception of another member of the House of Rep- resentatives. I must advise that those doing so will vio- late the law and will void their applications with me. Method of Selection The fairest way I know of (Kterminmg who among the applicanls will be awarded my nminations is through the Civil Service qu,alifyig exam- in.ations.[ In this way every boy has a chance, arid the ones scoring the highest grades re- ceive my nominatbons. Each academy then conducts its own scholastic and physical exami- nations of those boys I rom- inate before the aetuat appoin- ments are made. Since I util- ize the November Civil Ser- vice examinations, it is impor- t:ant that I have all app,ications in my office by October. Send- ing me an application will not obligate the b0y, but will serve to get his name on the list I .am require5 t:) send to the Civil Service Cammiss:ion a " bef('r th. examination nion,n ..M. l will v''ffy all 2coll- een, is of thi dot , when I am advised o.f it by the Commis- sion.

Representatives is permitted to have no more than five stu- dents at a time in each of these academies. Due to the fortimo,ming graduations of boy,s I nominated in 1961, and recent legisl'ative a,etton which -xp.anded enrollments at the Air Force and Military Acad- emies, I will have t;h,e fol'l,ow - ing number of v'ac'ancie,s for the classes entering in I965: U.
