LOS ANGELES-Max Rafferty,
victorious candidate for state su-
perintendent of public instruction
in a contest unprecedented for
public interest, attributes his suc-
cess largely to grass roots concern
to get better 'public schools, the
Christian Science Monitor report-
According to the latest available
returns, Rafferty defeated Ralph
Richardson, member of the Los
Angeles City Board of Education,
by 2,528,712 to 2,319,590 votes.
Some 250 "Parents for Rafferty"
groups throughout the state cam-
paigned indefatigably for Raffer-
ty's program, which was mainly
directed to ridding the schools of
"progressive education," getting
the right for local school districts
to pick elementary school text-
books and reorganizing the educa-
The nonpartisan race for state
superintendent of public instruc-
tion amounted to California's first
statewide debate over public school
policy and the candidates faced
each other before audiences 47
Richardson spoke to the com-
plexity of public education prob-
lems in California's big urban ar
lems in California's big urban
areas. Rafferty called for new at-
tention to content.
"I am opposed to the currently
popular 'life adjustment' philoso-
phy in education," Rafferty said
repeatedly. "I would like to stress
the importance of subject matter."
Although the state superintend-
ency is nonpartisan, partisan views
evidently played a big part °n the
Richardson had been a staff ad-
viser to Gov. Edmund G. Brown.
He had Brown's endorsement, was
endorsed by the Brown-appointed
State Board of Education, and had
the approval of the state's profes-
sional school associations.
Rafferty, as he has said, was a
grass-roots candidate. He had no
professional education association
backing. He was enthusiastically
supported by organizations and po-
litical groups that described them-
selves as conservative.

DETROIT - Gov-elect George
Romney resigned yesterday as
vice-chairman and director of
American Motors Corp. and an-
nounced he will put income from
firm's stock into trust fund while
he is governor.
Romney thus severed official
connection with a company which
he led from a failing automobile
and appliance manufacturer into
a $50 million a year money maker.
He also announced that he was
placing his 104,000 shares of
American Motors stock in the
hands of a bank trustee "who will
manage and administer a trust,
for me, to permit no diversion of
my attention from the office to
which I have been elected."
Romney said that his options,
as an officer, to buy Amercian
Motors stock at less than the
market price ended with his resig-
nation. He said he had 90 days
in which to exercise options pre-
viously earned, "but I have made
no decision on these."
SMALL VOTE CHANGE:
Reid Indicates .doubts
About Seeking Recount
By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Despite picking up votes in Oakland and Jackson
Counties, Republican lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Clarence
A. Reid indicated he may not seek a recount in his narrow defeat
to Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski.
Lesinski held a 3,470 vote lead over Reid, according to an
Associated Press tally yesterday of the official canvass of the Nov.

6 votes from all Michigan coun-
ties except Genesee and Wayne.
Genesee will report its official
totals today. Wayne will make its
vote official Monday.
Reid said last weekend he was
interested in a recount.
"I'd like to get Wayne and
Genesee in here to see whether
they will push it up any more. I
want them all in before I decide,"
"I figured I might have had a
chance on a recount if the dif-
ference had been 2100 or 2200
votes," Reid said. "But I don't
think a recount would do any
good if the difference stays up
Defeat Margin -
Reid had been told last Mon-
day by United Press International
that his margin of defeat was
slightly more than 2400 votes.
"I am neither encouraged nor
discouraged," he said. "I thought
it would be about 2300 votes. These
new figures make me have to ex-
amine the whole affair."
Reid said he had been examin-
ing areas for a possible recount.
"There are some in Kalamazoo,
Kent and Muskegon counties as
well as in Wayne where I would
want a new count, assuming I go
ahead and request it," he said.
Jackson County was included as
official even though its totals will
not be certified by the board of
canvassers until today. There was
a difference of 422 votes in Reid's
favor between the unofficial re-
turns and the figures of the county
Associated Press figures elec-
tion night gave Lesinski a margin
of slightly more than 11,000 votes.
However, an error of 8,139 votes
was found in Tuscola County.
NEW ORLEANS (P)-The Fed-
eral Appeals Court directed the
Justice Department yesterday to
institute criminal contempt ac-
tion against Mississippi Gov. Ross
Barnett and Lt. Gov. Paul B.
The court earlier held the two
in civil contempt for their efforts
to block Negro James H. Mere-
dith from enrollment at the Uni-
versity of Mississippi.
For that, Barnett faces the pos-
sibility of jail and daily fines of
$10,000, and Johnson the possibil-
ity of daily fines of $5,000 until
such time as the court deems they
have purged themselves.
The court hasn't imposed any
penalties yet, pending a decision
on whether-and if so, when-the
two purged themselves of con-
In Jackson, Barnett expressed
surprise at the court's action.
"I hadn't dreamed of it," he said.
Johnson said, "I have no com-
ment at all."
The Justice Department said in
Washington it would await receipt
of detailed instructions from the
court before acting.
In defiance of federal court or-
ders, Barnett and Johnson each
personally blocked the 29-year-old
Nefro from entering the previous-
ly all-white University of Missis-
sippi and knocking down more
than ancentury of segregation
Accompanied by federal mar-
shals, Meredith arrived on the
campus Sept. 30. A night of riot-
ing followed with two men killed
and scores of marshals and stu-
dents injured. The university reg-
istered Meredith the next morn-
ing while federal troops moved in
to restore order.
Since then, Meredith has at-
tended the university under guard.
Federal marshals and about 500
Army troops remain.

John F. Kennedy and West Ger-

pledged anew yesterday that West

The two leaders at the end of
two days of conferences issued a
joint communique in which they
agreed "a solution of the German
question can be found only in the
preservation of the right of self-
determination" for the West Ber-
The communique reported the
consultations "were conducted in
a relaxed and friendly spirit which
has become traditional in the rela-
tions between the two govern-
ments" and noted that the two
men "dealt in particular with
events relating to Cuba."
Adenauer early in his visit had
praised Kennedy's handling of the
Cuban situation and agreed that
its final solution must be the No.

The communique said that in
addition to Cuba a wide variety of
other common problems were dis-
cussed. These included the over-
all German situation, allied plan-

firation of Europe under the Com-
The President and the chancel-

"continues to be the basis for the

"The conversations have shown
that. both governments are in full

future you will attach less import-

what he does."
He called the Cuban crisis "the
first direct and mortal danger" the
American people had to face and
declared that "they stood the trial.
"When I hear about coexistence
in the future, I will think of Cuba,
and so will many others," he said.
