To Give Britons

'No-Nonsense' Service
As New Prime Minister)

Common ers
Spell Future
For Success
Associated Press News Analyst
LONDON (?)-To be successful
as prime minister, Lord Home
must descend from the rarified
atmosphere of British aristocracy
and diplomacy to the hurly-burly
of the House of Commons.
He must establish quick contact
with the common man.
Only by doing this can the for-
mer \foreign secretary stand a
chance of leading Britain's Con-
servative Party to victory over
the opposition Labor Party led by
middle-class Harold Wilson in the'
1964 elections.
Clothes Make the Man
Home won't achieve the new
image simply by taking off the
ermine robe of a lord and earl's
To the man in the street, Home
often appears as a remote and.
antiquated figure living on bor-
rowed time. Many are against a
prime minister from the House of
Lords on principle. "After all, he
wasn't elected by anyone's votes,"
they say.
Few Against Him
1n fact, Home probably g6t the
top job because few were against-
him rather than because many
wanted him.
But-those who wanted him were
those who counted-other ancient
families like the Devonshires (in-
laws of former Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan) and the
Churchills, whose backing still
counts for a 'great deal in even a
modernizpd Tory party.

.. predicts aid cut

D ksen
Sees Cut

WASHINGTON R5-)-Senate Mi-
nority Leader Everett M. Dirksen
(R-Ill) predicted yesterday that
floor action will reduce the $4.2
billion for foreign aid approved
Friday by the Foreign Relations
Committee, and Majority Leader
Mike Mansfield (D-Mont) did not
contradict him.
It seems certain that the ad-
ministration bill will be forced
to struggle hard to keep the au-
thorization close to $4 billion, in
contrast to the $4.5 billion origin-
ally asked by President John F.
Mansfield refused to predict the
outcome of the debate starting Oct.

To Announce,

Report MacLeod
Turned Down Post
LONDON (P')--Lord, Home put
dowen a revolt in Britain's Con-
servative Party yesterday and
marched triumphantly to Buck-
ingham Palace, established as the
new prime minister.
Then, in a fireside chat to the
nation, he promised to give Britain
a no-nonsense, straight-forward
government in the stormy days
ahead for his party.
"No one need expect any stunts
from me--merely plain, straight
talking," he said.
Mutual Understanding
"I want to share all the govern-
ment's thinking with you and want
you to understand what the gov-
ernment is doing and why."
The chat was Lord Home's first
address to Britons in his new role.
It came at the end of a hectic day
that started with conferences with
his Tory rivals and the victory
trip to the palace.
After hoirs of tense bargaining
with party rivals, Lord Home told
the Queen he had support enough
to form a government.
To Be Announced
Home's aides said he would an-
nounce his cabinet list today.
Iain MacLeod, joint chairman
of the Conservative Party, and
Health Minister Enoch Powell,
were reported by some sources to
have turned down jobs in Home's
cabinet. Others doubted the re-.
Informants said the two believ-
ed appointment of a veer as prime
minister was contrary to the im-
age of a modern, progressive party.
First Since 1895
Lord Home, victor in a power
struggle that split the Conserva-
tive Party, is the first peer to win
the supreme prize of British poli-
tics since Lord Salisbury in 1895.
Informants said Home intended
to ask Labor Party leader Harold
Wilson for a delay in the reopen-
ing of Parliament until he is
elected to a Commons seat. But
even before this could be confirm-
ed as official, Wilson told a rally
in Manchester the Laborites reject
the request as'an impertinance."
Until Home is elected to a Par-
liament seat he will not be permit-
ted to speak in the Commons. The
election process will take about a

On Issues
By The Associated Press
HANOVER, N.H. (AP)-New York
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller charg-
ed yesterday that Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ariz) had adopted po-
sitions "not in the best interests
of the American people" on such
issues as foreign aid, the World
Bank and United States member-
ship in the United Nations.
Rockefeller said he favored and
Goldwater opposed all three.
The New York governor thus
added to his growing list of ma-
jor issues on which he sees con-
flict between himself and the Ari-
zona senator.
Leading Non-Candidates
Goldwater and Rockefeller are
considered the leading prospects at
the moment for the Republican
nomination for President next
year, although neither has made a
formal declaration.
Rockefeller, while professing
agreement with Goldwater on fun-
damental Republican principles,
chose New Hampshire audiences
to hear him detail his differences
on specific issues.
The governor, with his wife ac-
companying him, made a two-day
tour of New Hampshire as he
opened a bid to win support for
this state's primary next March 10.
Calls for Debate
At almost every stop, Rockefeller
repeated his challenge to Gold-
water to join with him in a series
of debates on major issues.
Goldwater has refused on the
ground that Republicans should
unite and fight Democrats, not
fight among themselves, but Rock-
efeller is keeping up a barrage of
criticism that he hopes will crum-
ble the senator's opposition to the
debate idea.
The governor will confer with
GOP leaders in Vermont today
before returning to New York City.
A Wild Conservative?
Meanwhile, in Moscow, the gov-
ernment news agency Tass took
note of the fact that Goldwater is
a leading contender in the United
States presidential race and de-
nounced him as a leader of Ameri-
ca's "wild men."
The agency said he "describes
the ban on the launching of weap-
ons into outer space as a terrible
blow which the present American
government has struck at national
security" and added:
"He speaks the sentiments of the
most aggressively minded elements
of the American military quar-
