A survey of the states shows
Rockefeller has friends and sup-
porters in many areas of the coun-
try, Sallade, chairman of the
National Citizens for Rockefeller
for President, said.
Sallade mailed the results of his
communications with the nine
state leaders to Rockefeller in AI-
In his letter Sallade cited a "de-
cided upswing in your probable
candidacy since you have taken
the opportunity to appear in vari-
ous states and to state your posi-
tion on many controversial mat-
ters facing the American people.
"I hope sincerely that you de-
cide to campaign actively for the
Republican nomination for Presi-
dent and I know that in speaking
for all the above groups, you will
certainly have our support," he

But he -suggested that Rocke-

Republicans has been underrated,T
and a "spirited contest" for the
Michigan votes may emerge.
ILLINOIS - Rockefeller is

in Illinois, according to Chicago I

the state organization.
The Governor's recent trip to
Illinois met with encouraging re-

possibilities just completed shows

Spaak Tells Newsman
'There Is No Crisis'
PARIS (R) - The Atlantic Pact
Council last night pledged "a de-
terminedeffort" to guarantee the'
military strength of the West, but
apparently tossed the row with
France over an integrated air
command int6 the laps of Presi-
dents Dwight D. Eisenhower and
Charles de Gaulle.
Three days. of wrangling among
NATO ministers over the integra-
tion issue wound up with a com-
munique that neglected to men-
tion the subject at all. But Paul-
Henri Spaak, NATO's secretary
general, sought to assure a skepti-
cal throng of newsmen:
"This is no camouflage. This is
no lie. There is no crisis in NATO."
Greeted by ironic l a u g h t e r
Spaak declared: "I'm satisfied,
very satisfied, despite your appar-
ently cynical smiles."
Asked if all members of the al-
liance supported air integration,
he refused to give a yes or no an-
swer. He said there would have to
be agreement on what is meant
by integration first.
He added: "I do not say that
everyone is in agreement. But on
the day that all technical ques-
tions have been answered, I as-
sure you that we will find it easier
to agree quickly."
The closest the communique
came to the integration question
was in these words:
Plans Remain Valid
"Current NATO defense plans
therefore remain valid."
The alliance's master military
plan of two years ago calls for
unifying the forces - ground and
naval as well as air - of the 15
NATO partners under an inter-
It was this issue that dominat-
ed the three-day session. Brief-

the Americans took the lead in
pushing for air integration as a
first step and won the support of

balked, following the policies of
President de Gaulle who insists
that France must maintain her
national military forces and op-
