Rain also will occur in New York State and Vermont. SNOW IN LAKES AREA Snow is forecast today for the Great Lakes area with snow flurries predicted for Kansas and Nebraska. Rain and Excited Humphrey Votes, Takes Rest "We're going to do well," Wallace predicted after voting, but then added: "This movement is highly successful already, In that both national parties are talking like the people supporting our ticket." Wallace said the strength he had shown in all sections of the country would Insure that in the future a southerner could be nominated by any national party. Asked If he would do anything differently If he had his campaign to make again, he joked, "I would have my schedule made out so that I didn't have to get you newsmen up so early In the morning." After voting, Wallace had lunch with his grandmother, Mrs. G. O. Wallace of Clayton. His mother, Mrs. Mozelle Wallace, of Montgomery, and his brother, Circuit Judge Jack Wallace of Clayton, were present when he voted. Wallace told reporters, "I voted for the Wallace-LeMay ticket," then added: "I voted the straight ticket under the rooster." Alabama is the only state in which Wallace did not run as a third party candidate. He was on the ballot here as the Democratic candidate. Wallace's campaign, the biggest third party effort since the Bull Moose party of Teddy Roosevelt In 1912, in reality began more than a year ago when Wallace started making forays into the north to give speeches. Although he insisted at the time he had not made up his mind to run, it was considered a foregone conclusion by those who knew him that he would be a candidate. Even when he spent several weeks In California in a successful effort to get 67,000 persons to register in his American Independent Party, Wallace Insisted he was not yet a candidate. He said he wanted to give the other parties a chance to adopt his programs. Finally in February, after the announcement had been postponed by the serious illness of his wife, he said he was officially entering the race to fulfill a commitment he had made to her and the people of Alabama when she ran to succeed him as governor. He said the statements and actions of the leading contenders In the other parties indicated they would not return control of the schools and local government. His campaigning was restricted during the Winter and Spring months because of his wife's Illness. Gov. Lurleen B. Wallace died of cancer May 7. After a period of mourning, Wallace returned to his campaign and It gradually grew to Its final size which required two prop-jet Electras to transport his staff and newsmen from one stop to another. A financial report filed with the clerk of the House of Representatives more than a week MIAMI (UPI) FBI agents in Miami and New Orleans sought Tuesday to track down the background of the young Negro who hijacked a jetliner with 65 people aboard and took it to Cuba in the name of "black nationalists." The FBI here would say nothing about Its Investigation of the Monday hijacking of a National Airlines 727 jet except that It was working closely with the New Orleans FBI office. It was about 10 minutes after the plane took off from New Orleans bound for Miami, according to the crew members, that the man who entered the men's room In the first class section wearing a natty blue blazer emerged outfitted in a black leather jacket, black shirt buttoned to the neck and a black beret. Stewardess Sandra O'Brien said the Negro, who looked about 25 and wore sideburns, pointed.! pistol at her head, said simply "Havana," and forced her toward the cockpit. He forced his way in by using her as a hostage and ordered Capt. Antone Hunter, 50, to change course for Cuba. The plane landed at Havana Airport before noon Monday but was not released until shortly after 6 p.m. EST, and then only the seven crew members were allowed to fly the jet to Miami. The passengers were wined and dined, then put on a bus and taken to Varadero, where a Cuban refugee airlift propeller plane picked them up and brought them back to Miami early today. The gunman stayed in Havana. He was tentatively identified from the passenger list as a "Mr. H. Jackson of Baton Rouge." The hijacker Identified himself as a "black nationalist freedom fighter," and proclaimed he was naming the Jetliner "the Republic of New Africa." The hijacker also made the stewardesses collect $405 from the other passengers as "a contraband of war." But when the plane landed in Havana, Cuban authorities took the money from him and gave It to the stewardesses to return to the passengers. Miss O'Brien recalled the hijacker leaving the plane. She said he raised his clenched fist in the black power salute, "and he had an expression on his face that seemed to say, 'I did this aren't you glad?'"

Millions, Dogs Willed To Auburn AUBURN, Ala. (UPI) A Florida woman left more than $2.5 million and 150 dogs to Auburn University for the study of diseases In small animals, It was announced Tuesday. The unusual request, from the late Miss Eleanor Elizabeth Ritchey of Ft. Lauderdale consisted of the bulk of her estate. Miss Ritchey, who died Oct. 14, had a penchant for homeless dogs and kept 150 of them at her Broward County ranch. The grant was contingent upon the university finding satisfactory homes for the dogs. Dr. Harry M. Philpott, university president, said that request would be handed with dispatch. The reason for the bequest was Miss Ritchey's friendship with football player Tucker Frederlckson of Ft. Lauderdale and his father veterinarian Dr. Ivan C. Frederlckson. Dr. Frederlckson gave medical care to her dogs. Frederlckson played football at Broward High School, then went to Auburn on a grant-in-aid. He now plays for the New York Giants of the National Football League. Miss Ritchey's will, recorded Oct. 23, was drawn in 1963 when Frederlckson was at Aubum, and provides for the care of her dogs until all have died or been placed In suitable homes. Once this Is accomplished, the entire estate, except for a small bequest to the manager of her ranch, will go to the Scott Research Fund in the School of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn "Tucker Frederlckson brought great glory to Aubum on the gridiron," said Dr. Philpott.

Of 450 registered voters In Marysville township, the vice president and Mrs. Humphrey were the 41st and 42nd to vote Tuesday. Humphrey wore a gray suit, Mrs. Humphrey a cream-colored Coat. Spotting a child huddled in a warm parka in the late Minnesota autumn, the vice president joked, "I'm going home and put on one just like it." A rumored demonstration of student draft-card burners at Waverly failed to materialize. After resting during the day, the Humphrey family were scheduled to be private dinner guests of an old friend, Minneapolis banker Dwayne Andreas, at his lake home midway between Waverly and Minneapolis. Humphrey was then to go to the Leamington hotel in downtown Minneapolis and retire to a 14th floor suite to await the nation's verdict. He had no scheduled public appearance Tuesday night, but a large room in the hotel was crammed with television cameras aimed at a decorated platform. Humphrey aides said they were Installing a flatbed truck on the street outside the hotel- just In case.

Humphrey calls the tiny community of Waverly, 40 miles west of Minneapolis, his home town, but he Is a voting resident of the township which, like Waverly, is near his rambling lake retreat called the Triple HHH ranch. The vice president's right hand wore bandages from bruises received shaking hands In the tumultous Los Angeles welcome that buoyed his hopes in the campaign's homestretch.
