    INTERVIEWER: SENATOR GOLDWATER RECENTLY SUGGESTED YOU AS A VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. DO YOU SEE THIS AS AN EFFORT TO ELIMINATE YOU AS A POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE?.



    SCRANTON: NO I DON'T THINK HE MEANT IT THAT WAY, BUT I THINK SENATOR GOLDWATER KNOWS WHAT EVERYBODY KNOWS AND THAT IS I DON'T WANT TO BE A NATIONAL CANDIDATE OF ANY TYPE.



    INTERVIEWER: WELL, YOU HAVE SAID YOU WILL ACCEPT THE DRAFT.



    SCRANTON: YES I HAVE IF IT WAS HONEST AND SINCERE AND I DON'T THINK THOSE COME ANY MORE, SIR.



    INTERVIEWER: IF IT WERE HELD NOW... AND SENATOR GOLDWATER GOT THE NOMINATION, WOULD YOU SUPPORT HIM?



    SCRANTON: CERTAINLY, I'D SAY THAT I WOULD SUPPORT WHOEVER WAS NOMINATED AT THE CONVENTION.



    INTERVIEWER: BUT WHEN IT COMES IN JULY IN SAN FRANCISCO AS YOU SEE IT NOW YOU WILL NOT BE A CANDIDATE?



    SCRANTON: THAT IS CORRECT, SIR.



    INTERVIEWER: DO YOU HAVE A DELEGATE STRENGTH THAT YOU KNOW OF OUTSIDE OF PENNSYLVANIA?



    SCRANTON: IF I DO I DON'T KNOW ABOUT IT, I HAVE NOT MADE ANY EFFORT TO GET ANY.
