Sir: The Midwestern Republican who "sniffed" at the idea of Jacob Javits as a 1968 presidential or vice-presidential possibility [June 24] is quite likely one who was supporting Barry Goldwater at this time four years ago. While Goldwater "went down well" with the Kansas delegates to the Republican Convention, he did not go down at all with the state's voters. How desperately the entire world needs and longs for an intelligent, articulate, honest candidate for U.S. leadership. I believe that Sen. Jacob Javits is one strong answer.
