Crisis

KING CONSTANTINE

GEORGE PAPANDREOU

THIRD TERM:
Rockefeller Reiterates
.Plan To Run for Off ice.
NEW YORK MP)-Republican Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller served
notice yesterday on party dissidents that he is not going to be
easily shoved aside. He reiterated his determination to run for a
third term in 1966.
And he left open his long-standing ambition for the GOP
presidential nomination, telling a news conference:
"We are so far away from 1968 it is meaningless. I am not
giving it time or thought."
Timing Significant
There was 'nothing new in Rockefeller's announcement that he

will run again for governor-he

said the same thing as long ago
as May 5. But the timing seemed
significant since there have been
rumblings of discontent with
Rockefeller from the ranks of the
state Republican party.
The gist of this criticism is
that Rockefeller's popularity with
New York voters has waned, and
that if he runs next year he may
take the party down to defeat
with him.
Rockefeller told newsmen that
he recently had to increase taxes,
but added:
"You always go through a period
of reaction following that. I'm
very proud of our record of the
past seven years."
Denies Split
Rockefeller denied the Republi-
can party was split in New York,
and said he thought his opposi-
tion "is more in the newspapers
than anywhere else.
Dissident support has appeared
to center around Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R-NY). Javits is believed
to have his eye on eventual nom-
ination for Vice-President--in fact
Rockefeller mentioned that in his
news conference.
In furtherance of that ambition,
it is presumed, the senator let it
be known last January that he
did not feel bound to support
Rockefeller for President in 1968,
as he has in the past.

Holds Over
Seven Men
In Cabinet
Premier Has Trouble
Locating Supporters
ATHENS (P)-King Constantine
swore in a new government last
night in an attempt to dispel
Greece's worst crisis since the
Civil War days of 1947-1949.
Political tension gripped Athens
and much of the rest of this
volatile member of the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization as the
25-year-old monarch's new pre-
mier, George Athanasiadis Novas,
hastily put together a cabinet of
15 members.
Seven of these were holdovers
from the government of George
Papandreou, whom the king fired
24 hours previously.
The announcement of the new
government came suddenly amid
reports that the new Premier was
having difficulty getting mem-
bers of his-and Papandreou's-
Center Union Party to accept
portfolios.
Athanasiadis Novas was sworn
in Thursday as premier after Pa-
pandreou broadcast a resignation
statement. The new Premier, who
had been President of Parliament,
quickly joined battle with Papan-
dreou for the loyalty of the Cen-
ter Union Party, threatened with
a split which conceivably could
force new elections.
The fact that seven members
of the former Papandreou govern-
ment joined the new Premier's
cabinet indicated, however, wide
defection from the ranks of Pa-
pandreou's followers.
Attempting to thwart formation
of a new government, Papandreou
had said he would regard any
persons joining the new cabinet
as a traitor to the party. He had
been appealing for public dem-
onstrations against the new Pre-
mier.
Athanasiadis Novas quickly
banned demonstrations, while the
Interior Ministry ordered police
to crack down on disturbances.
There were demonstrations for
Papandreou Thursday night but
no major outbursts were reported
yesterday in Athens. In Salonika,
however, 2,000 students defied a
police ban and demonstrated for
Papandreou, calling his successor
a "traitor."
After preliminary difficulties,
the new Premier lined up all 15
cabinet members within 24 hours,
all deputies of the Center Union
Party, and the King was able to
swear in a full cabinet.
Athanasiadis Novas then pledg-
ed himself to pursue the Center
Unioi Party policies of Papan-
dreou.
The basic issue in the crisis was
the King's power to hire and fire
premiers as he saw fit, an issue
which crops up frequently in Greek
politics.
