Reflecting on the ruins of his plans in an
empty, thoroughly dirty Yost Fieldhouse Sunday
evening, Richard Nixon's campaign manager for
the Republican Mock Convention, Bob Edgewoi'th,
grad, remained calm.
"We'll win in August," he claims.
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller (R-NY), had swept
to the nomination on the second ballot.
Edgeworth had hoped for victory on the third
ballot, but he was foiled by the liberal leanings
of many delegates and first ballot votes for Gov.
Ronald Reagan (R-Cal) that were released to the
Rockefeller bandwagon on the second ballot.
The first ballot gave each of the major candi-
dates about 180 votes, while the rest was split be-
tween favorite son candidates.
Planners of the convention wished to accurately
predict who would be nominated by the official
Republican convention in August. Delegates were
asked "to simulate what the real delegate in his

By the time California's name came up again,
Rocky was nominated with 638 votes-more than
a hundred over the 526 required for nomination.
Then, as part of an agreement cooked up with
Reagon supporters, Rockefeller campaign manager
Bob Gorsline, '69, asked the convention to nom-
inate Reagan as Vice-President to "unify the
Some Reagan adherants disapproved of the
move, because they did not want the conservative
Californian running below the liberal Rockefeller
on the ticket. Besides, as one delegate explains,
"Ronnie doesn't want to be Vice-President."
Missives from official Reagan for President
Headquarters discourage nominations of Reagan
for Vice-President at Mock Conventions as detri-
mental to his Presidential hopes.
Despite this, Reagan was nominated amid jeers,
cheers, and departing delegates.
Demonstrations on behalf of candidates took
