Goldwater promotes
Reagan at conventio*

DETROIT (AP) - Barry Goldwater
left a hospital bed yesterday to address
the Republican National Convention,
helping Ronald Reagan celebrate a
conservative takeover of the
Republican Party much like his own 16
years ago.
The appearance of the party's "Mr.
Conservative" was expected to set off
cheering as loud or louder than that ac-
corded former President Gerald Ford
when he addressed the convention
Monday night.
THE ARIZONA senator is recovering
from a problem similar to the one that
had his right foot in a cast when he won
the party's 1964 presidential
nomination in San Francisco.
It was at that convention that
Reagan, then newly embarked on a
career of speaking out on conservative
causes, took his first national bow on
the political stage, exhorting the
delegates to embrace both Goldwater
and his philosophy.
There were three memorable
speeches at that convention.
THE BEST remembered was Gold-
water's controversial declaration that
"extremism in the defense of liberty is
no vice" and "moderation in the pursuit
of justice is no virtue."
Another was by moderate Nelson
Rockefeller in support of an amen-
dment that would have called on the
party to repudiate the efforts of ex-
tremist groups. Rockefeller, then
governor of New York, was booed and
interrupted frequently by Goldwater
But also remembered as electrifying
was the address by Reagan. It so im-
pressed party leaders that not long af-
ter the convention, he went on a
speaking tour for Goldwater. He was
embarking on a course that will climax
today when his party nominates him for
