Estes Kefauver and Adlai Stevenson plunged today into a last' weekend of' forced-draft' cam paigning before Tuesday's Demo cratic presidential primary in Cal ifornia, Kefauver continued to byng away at Stevenson, accusing him of double talk on the civil right question. .Stevenson—saying he is "not in terested in dealing in personal! ties"—gave Kefauver only sligh notice. Instead) he reserved hi heaviest blows for the Republican Eisenhower administration. With the California primary re garded as a possible make-or break test, both rival candidate; for the Democratic presidentia nomination went all-out in hopes of pulling a big majority. The win ner will get California's 68-vote delegation, after New York's the biggest at the party's 'national convention in August. This also will be their last direct confesi before that convention/: President -Eisenhower is unop posed on the .Republican primary ballot in California.'The.state.will send 70 delegates to the, GOP nom inating convention; also in August Nixon Wants No -Write-ins Friday, Vice President Nixon— virtually certain to be > Eisen bower's running: mate again — asked that Republican-voters no write in his name on $eir ballots next Tuesday. He telephoned V John Krehbiel. Los Angelps Countj GOP chairman, and cautioned tha write-ins might .invalidate ballots under California law. Kefauver, soliciting votes In northern California, hit hard on the civil rights issue — a prime one in that state." He said in San Francisco tha Stevenson was pictured in the Florida primary campaign as a "moderate" on. the racial Integra tion question. But in California Kefauver said, Stevenson is being put forward as a "civil rights cru sader." ... ,.'.." Kefauver Lost in Florida Kefauver, who lost the Florida primary to Stevenson by a slim popular vote margin, said his op ponent's "civil rights equivocatioi has made it all' but impossible for the big delegations of New York and Michigan—yes, and a large section of Illinois, now—to support him at the convention." Stevenson has replied to previous Kefauver attacks along this line by saying he supports the Supreme Court's school integration decision as the law of the land, and that he believes in its implementation by moderate, non forceful means. He also contends liis position has been consistent, Kefauver contended also that s Stevenson victory .next Tuesday would put what Kefauver called the "old guard" in control of the California Democratic party. This the senator 'said, would lead to loss of the state in the Novembei election. At Anaheim, in southern Call fornia, Stevenson replied to this thrust by.saying the Democratic party will carry California "on the failures of the Eisenhower administration—and not on anything else." Say* Position Deteriorates Stevenson argued that this county's world position is deteriorating under what he said is a "confused and divided Republican administration. Michigan Democrats gathered in Grand Rapids for a state convention at which a 44-vote national convention delegation was scheduled tq be chosen.

Natural gas is now the sixth argest U.S. industry, says the National Geographic Society, dentiul candidate. Party leaders planned to move for adoption of a strong statement on civil rights. At Des Moines Friday, Iowa Democrats met and picked a 24- vote convention delegation. Tbe group, made up of 82 delegates and alternates, will be uninstructed. But there were indication* fifj a majority leaning toward Steven son. At Rochester, N.Y., Tammany leader Carmine De Sapio said Fri day night "the manifestations o: powerful people" outside New York will leave Gov. Averell Harriman "no choice" but to become an active bidder for the Democratic presidential nomination. In Hazark, Ky., Chairman Dew- iy Daniel of the Kentucky Republican Central Committee said Friday night that John Sherman -ooper, U.S. ambassador to India, las made a definite decision not to run for the Senate this fall. Daniel said Cooper sent him a telegram :o this effect from Boston, where Cooper is hospitalized to await minor throat surgery on Monday. To Keep Post The Kentucky chairman said Cooper's reasons would be made known today when the state GOP committee meets in Lexington. Cooper has said moi'e than once le does not believe he should eave his post in India after serv- ng only one year. Cooper, a former senator, had been mentioned as,a. possible GOP candidate for the seat leftiyacant by the death of Sen. Balrkley (D-Ky). The Democrats have not yet picked their nominee for the four remaining years of Barkley's unexpired term.. '...'.'.'." In Montgomery, Ala., Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala) said he would do my best" to see to it that the Democratic party adopts a platform the South can accept. Sparkman, the Democrats' 1952 vice presidential nominee, said a Southern bolt • from the party would accomplish nothing but a Republican victory. 8,000 City Auto Licenses Sold Sale of city automobile licenses passed the 8,000 mark during the forenoon today. The licenses are dispensed-by the city treasurer, and hundreds of residents have been buying their licenses as they call to pay their general taxes at the treasurer's office.

WASHINGTON UB-The replacement of Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov was regarded in Washington today as a well-timed move by the KhrushsheV-Bulganin regime to strengthen its ties with Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia. Molptov's "resignation" announced in Moscow Friday, on the activity in the Middle East and i he will not again subordinate the long been expected in Washington and in other Western capitals. The appointment of Dmitri Shep- ilov as his successor also came as no surprise. Shepilov, editor since 1952 of Pravda, the Communist party newspaper, had been a major subject of speculation for the job. U.S. officials said there was no reason to think that the change would alter American relations with the Soviet Union. Nor did they expect to make any difference at all in the major lines of Soviet foreign policy developed by Communist party boss NSldta Khrushchev and Premier Nikolai Bulganin. Some authorities said privately that the switch from Molotov to the" younger Shepilov could mean a more vigorous conduct of Soviet diplomacy. They said it could bring intensified efforts in the fields of international conferences, official visits between Russia and other countries and stepped-up South Asia. But the most immediate significance of the changeover was seen in Washington as involving further Russian efforts to repair the damage done by the Stalinist regime to Soviet-Yugoslav relations in 1948. Stalinist pressures on Tito to knuckle under to Moscow at that had caused the Yugoslav to revolt against Soviet time interests of his country to the interests of the Soviet Union. There have been reports for many months among Western diplomats that Molotov was not very happy with the peaceful coexistence policy—the display of tub- thumping good will—toward Western powers and the neutrals which Bulganin and Khrushchev have developed in numerous public state- domination and develop an inde-! ments and foreign travels. This pendent Communist position. Bulganin and Khrushchev visited Tito last year in an effort to win him back. Now Tito is returning the visit and they have laid out the red carpet for him. Molotov had been identified with the anti-Tito policy in 1948 and it was significant that he did not make the trip with Bulganin and Khrushchev to Belgrade last year. Shepilov did. The removal of Molotov—and authorities here have no doubt that it was a removal instead of a voluntary resignation—is therefore construed as a move pleasing to Tito just as the appointment of Shepilov is believed to be. The timing by Khrushchev and Bulgan- in was presumably deliberate in relation to Tito's arrival. American officials still feel, as they did a year ago, that while Tito is glad to have normal relations with Russia and its satellites led to speculation that in the inner councils of the Soviet regime Molotov has opposed many things that Bulganin and Khrushchev wanted to do. . Since Shepilov's growing prominence in Soviet affairs has taken place chiefly during the post-Stnlin period, the assumption here is that he is in accord with the Bulganin- Khrushchev policies. To tin's extent Soviet diplomacy may become somewhat more efficient. At least the man formally responsible for carrying out the government's decisions will not be antagonistic to them. Hubcap* Stolen John Belt of R,t 2, Godfrey, complained to the police at 10:30 a.m. today that four hubcaps had been stolen from his car while it was parked near Third and Market streets.
