CONOMICALLY speaking, the state and

numbers of out-of-state students who an-

WITH PERFECT politeness and
genteel deference, Gov. Nel-
son Rockefeller of New York is
reaching for Vice-President Rich-
ard Nixon's Jugular vein.
Mr. Rockefeller's disclosure that
he will contest Mr. Nixon for the
Presidential nomination only if
the public opinion polls are kind
to him has hit the Nixon forces
hard-in their one vulnerable spot.
They had not been afraid of any
outright Rockefeller challenge in
the old-fashioned way -a frank
attempt to go out and grab pro-
Rockefeller delegates to next year's
GOP convention. They felt that
such an unhidden Rockefeller
thrust would shatter against Mr.
Nixon's rocklike position with the
regular, organization Republicans.
The Vice-President himself for
months has known, and privately
said, that the one danger from
Rockefeller was by way of an ap-
peal not to the organization Re-
publicans but to the large, happy
public by way of a personal popu-
larity contest. For the vague fac-
tors of like and dislike-the way a
man smiles or combs his hair-
have immense effect on the polls.

This every politician knows, none
more keenly than the Vice-Presi-
dent. The, trouble is that he has,
surely, been "controversial"-and
Rockefeller surely has not been.
therefore, are striking at Mr. Nix-
on in an area where his powerful
position, and even his historic suc-
cess in his Russian mission, will
not necessarily arm him quite
They are-doing this, moreover,
in such a way as to skirt the risk
of candidly hitting Mr. Nixon over
the head. They have left them-
selves free to say that Mr. Nixon
is the finest possible fellow - and
maybe' even the ablest, too - but
isn't it too bad that the polls indi-
cate he "can't win"? They are go-
ing to the public over the heads of
the "politicians," just as the Vice-
President, with his bleak realism,
always suspected they would.
This blandly adroit Rockefeller
strategy is basically the same
strategy by which from 1940 on-
ward the professional Republicans
have been overcome at every na-
tional convention. The results have

Thomas E. Dewey of New York.

SOMETHING new, however, has
been added. For the Rockefeller,
approach - in which politicians
here clearly see the fine non-Ital-
ian hand of Dewey-has one new
strength. It is so prepared that the,
try can be made without drawing.
a visible sword 'against Nixon.
Thus,,the Rockefeller people are
trying to neutralize their greatest:
previous obstacle. This was the
disinclination of many-GOP politi-
cians to break with Nixon, like
him or not, lest theirs seem an act
of utter rebellion punishable if
Nixon should triumph after all.
But you can hardly convict a
man as a revolutionary if he is
not really "opposing" you - but
is only awaiting the word of "the
people" as to whom ought to be
nominated. That is not ugly revolt;
that is only "objectivity."
No one should now write off Mr.
Nixon; he remains the favorite by
a wide margin. Certainly this is so
"as of now"-a phrase increasingly
being used.

operating with a tough and able

perhaps, a widely loved one.,
But their disadvantages, and the
Rockefeller advantages, will be

DENVER - An open letter to

All those Western heroes who
gallop across the television screens
seem to have avoided the Cen-
tennial State. Wyatt Earp and
Matt Dillon, brave as they were,
never ventured west of Kansas.
Tombstone is buried in Arizona;

THEREFORE, gentlemen, we
give you Colorado. You may wish
to try a series on one of the min-

tempt a fur trapping Western, a

even a skiing Western. You would
still have to add your touch to
make Colorado Western truly adult

the psychologists.
But be careful. There is some
material which must be reserved
for Westerners alone, some dubi-
ous sidelights which improve with
Iage and good liquor.
One such subject is a gentleman
named Ogilvy. Colonel Ogilvy was

crude gesture. On a bet that he
could clear the hotel of all guests
at 2 a.m., Colonel Ogilvy sent a
horde of rats, followed by yelping
hounds, through the inner cham-
bers. He won the bet.
The grand finale-in every sense
--was the Colonel's funeral. Unlike
most such occasions, the corpse
was alive. The Colonel placed his
funeral notice in the Post, rented
a coffin and climbed in. His pur-
pose was to determine how many
mourners would come to his last
rites when the inevitable really
did happen.

of Hollywood, -we suspect that the
vivid hues of the state's history
are too bright even for color TV.
