32 Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 6, 1968 LB j Knew That Thieu Would Balk, Aides Say A ttorneys Begin Sweet's Defense f i i li ' ' T"nr -..-V : was not attempting any more argument with Thieu at this point. The U. S. strategy appeared to be to allow the South Vietnamese president to go through with his demonstration of independence and dis pleasure, after which It was expected that he would reluctantly agree to send representatives to Paris with another expression of displeasure at the arrangements and a declaration of refusal to acknowledge the validity of the NLF presence. L J 1 i 1 . 7 C0LUJB i5a0JST OF I' ' - X BARTOW (UPI) The prosecution completed its case Tuesday in the first degree murder trial of former bookie John J. Sweet charged in the death of Sebring citrus millionaire Charles Von Maxcy. Circuit Court Judge William K. Love denied a defense motion for directed verdict of acquittal' and a motion for a mistrial. Protesters Arrested WASHINGTON (AP) National Park Police broke up a demonstration of young people Tuesday across the street from the White House, arresting scores for demonstrating without a permit. Maj. George Wright estimated that 100 persons were arrested in Lafayette Park. The charge is a misdemeanor, he said. The rally was sponsored by Students for a Democratic Society as part of their attempt to stage a nationwide student strike to protest the presidential election. SINGLES CLUB PARTY DANCE 8:00 P.M. 1SLANDKK KOOM SEAVIEW HOTEL SINGER ISLAND The defense was to begin presentation of Its case later Tuesday. The jury was dismissed while Defense Attorney James McEwen argued for the directed verdict of acquittal. The Tampa attorney argued the state failed to prove Its case against the stocky, balding, Sweet and that the state had not proven any connection between the defendant and two alleged assassins from Boston. The state had constructed its case largely on circumstantial evidence, he said, and alleged that Sweet had used' money given him by the victim's widow to hire two underworld characters from Boston to kill Macxy. The state's testimony Monday was designed primarily to try to tie Sweet to the Boston figures and then to place the alleged assassins in Florida at the time Maxcy was killed Oct. 3, 1966. Although Sweet is not charged with actually doing the killing, he still faces a possible death penalty if convicted. Maxcy was found shot and stabbed to death on the floor of his plush home near Sebring. Mrs. Irene Maxcy, who was granted immunity to testify against Sweet, told of a deep illicit romance with Sweet and said she paid him 536,000 to arrange for her husband's death. Knowing Vote PHILADELPHIA (AP) An overwhelming majority of Western voters polled In a recent Sindlinger daily survey said that knowing East Coast election results before their own polls closed had no influence on their votes. Some 1,186 adults in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada who said they planned to vote Tuesday were queried from Oct. 29 to Monday midnight by Sindlinger & Co., a marketing analyst firm in suburban Norwood. Pa. The survey results were released Tuesday. They were asked if their vote was influenced by knowing the result from Eastern stales before their polls closed. SomeD.'U percent said they were not influenced, 2.1 per cent said they were, two per cent said they possibly were aflected and 2.8 per cent had no opinion.

The sources contended, however, that Johnson had no choice but to make the announcement when he did. They firmly denied any suggestion that he was playing politics in an effort to help Hubert H. Humphrey in the presidential race. South Vietnam's president, Nguyen Van Thieu fully agreed on Oct. 16 to the formula the United States proposed for halting the bombing and expanding the Paris talks, these sources said, but suddenly reversed himself Oct. 30 after Hanoi accepted Johnson's proposal. Despite intensive round-the-lock discussions on Oct .'lull, Thieu was said to have refused to stick by his earlier agreement and demanded that Hanoi declare publicly thai the National Liberation Front lM.Fi, the political arm of the Viet Cong rebels in the South, would not be admitted to the Paris talks as a separate delegation. The American version was that Thieu backed down from his earlier agreement to Ihe U. S. formula, which provided simply that there would be "two sides" present at the expanded talks and thai each could be composed as that side desired. The United Slates' position is that Hanoi may call the NLE delegation anything it wishes, but American dele-gales will recognize only one side across the table. Administration sources said that when Hanoi suddenly agreed in a secret talk al Paris Oct. 27 to adept the U.S. proposal. President Johnson could not then begin trying to alter the formula. Since the United Stales had told Hanoi that the bombing halt must be followed quickly by substantive Paris talks, Johnson had a responsibility to move ahead as rapidly as possible. When It became apparent that U. S. ambassador to Saigon, Ellsworth Bunker would be unable to convince Thieu to honor his Oct. 16 agreement, Johnson decided that he had to go ahead and persuade the Saigon government that it must ultimately attend the meeting. Despite this Administration explanation, the fact thai the bombing halt went into effect just three days before the U. S. election was bound to spark a lively post election argument here as to whether the President was playing domestic politics Secretary of State Dean Husk and other officials have strongly denied this. Meanwhile, Washington officials said they expected Saigon eventually, would agree to send a delegation to Paris but acknowledged that Bunker made his way back to a model kitchen where 79-year-old T. M. McNatt was presiding over the election board. Although the LBJ ranch Is In Gillespie County, Johnson is registered and votes In Blanco County. And McNatt said that: "As long as he Is President, he can vole any place In the United States he chooses to vote." He gave the Johnsons their ballots and a couple of yellow pencils, and they went over to a plastic-topped table to sit down and study them. The Johnson ballots were the 12th and 13th tucked into a metal box. About 275 persons were eligible to vote there, McNatt said. The President and First Lady motored back to Ihe ranch, where aides said it looked like a quiet day a good bit of It to be spent in front of a television setheck ing the returns.

Last month Hussein urged restraint in such attacks because of the severe reprisals they incurred on his people by the Israelis. The clash Monday pointed up once again Hussein's difficulties with his fellow Arabs. In the past more militant elements in the Middle East have accused Hussein of too moderate a stance in the crisis with Israel. Hussein Is known to want the passive support of AJ-Nasr and other guerrilla organizations to maintain political stability, but not at the price of actually recognizing the groups, since recognition would imply sanction of their activities. In other Mideast develop ments: The semi-official Egyptian newspaper Al Ah ram said the U.S, Central Intelligence Agency was probably behind the Al-Nasr move against Hussein. Six persons, including three children, were injured when a bomb exploded near the tomb of Patriarchs in Hebron, Israeli-occupied Jordan, authorities disclosed Monday. (A Jerusalem newspaper, Davar, said several Soviet ships were pulling out of the Mediterranean for home as a sign that the Kremlin wanls no new Arab-Israeli clash).

Johnson has been touting his vice president, Hubert H. Humphrey, as a man who deserves the faith and support of the American people, and as the one man best qualified to take over the White House next January. He wasn't answering any questions Tuesday about how he marked his ballot or about anything else. Seldom In the last .'!() years has there been a national election in which Johnson wasn't a candidate for something or other Congress, the Senate, the vice presidency, the White House itself. But if there were any regrets about his having taken liimsef out of Ihe presidential race last March, they didn't show on election day. Even though he was lenor-Ing questions, he was amiable, relaxed and chatty. Election box No. i at Johnson City was open for ballot business at 7 a.m. Two hours later Ihe President and Mrs. Johnson arrived from the LBJ ranch 15 miles to the west, with Johnson at the wheel and his pet pup, Yukl, in the back seat of a white Continental. He in a mocha-colored suit and she In a brilliant red dress and coat, they walked up the steps at the co-op with the President calling out to the White House press corps: "I hope all of you voted absentee." They passed a marble plaque on the low, L-shaped building of native limestone proclaiming that the Peder-nales Electric Cooperative Inc. is "a product of the faith, ability and foresight of Lyndon Baines Johnson, President of the United States of America, while congressman, Tenth District."
