THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1968 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Nixon Urge s Tough Antiriot Policy, End To Military Draft CONWAY, N.H. (UPI) -, Richard M. Nixon, calling for a get tough policy for rioters and criticizing the courts for handcuffing the police is making a major campaign issue out of crime and lawlessness. The Republican presidential candidate also proposes that the United States should end the draft and resort to an all-volunteer Army when the Vietnam war is ended. His proposal calls for creation o f civilian "nation-building team" to help countries threatened by guerrilla warfare. Speaking yesterday to a crowd of 400 at Littleton, N.H., Nixon said his plan would "let young people be able to plan their lives rather than living always as are the young people today with that {the draft) hanging over them." Nixon, winding up a three-day get out 'the vote tour of New Hampshire today, is drawing his loudest cheers with his jibes at the courts. "Some of our courts have gone too far in weakening the peace forces against the criminal forces," Nixon said Wednesday night in Keene. "If criminals think they can get away with it, and if the courts are lenient with mem, they will grow and grow and become stronger and stronger." The former vice president sharply criticized the President's Commission on Civil Disorders earlier in the day for blaming riots in the nation's cities on "everyone except the perpetrators of the riots. "We have got to make it clear to potential rioters that in the event something starts next summer, that the law will move in with adequate force to put down rioting and looting at the first indication of it." Nixon told a turn-away crowd of 1,300 in Keene that if President Johnson is re-elected in November, the nation will "continue to be torn by racial strife." The former vice president received a loud ovation when he promised to "stop the rise in crime and reestablish respect for the law" if elected to the White House. Nixon, in a local radio interview, said he felt the President's anti-riot commissions had "put undue emphasis on the idea we are a racists society, white races versus black races. "There is a great deal of prejudice in the Unite States," Nixon said. "There will continue to be a great deal of prejudice in the United States. "But we're making gains on it and I think this talk that tends to divide people and build a wall in between people doesn't help," he said. , "What we need is more talk about reconciliation, more talk about how we are going to work together." Nixon, whose efforts to gain the image of a winner in the nation" first primary were complicated by the withdrawal of Michigan Gov. George Romney, has been attempting to turn out a big vote by creating the impression he is running against Lyndon Johnson. At each stop, he tells his audience the nation will be comparing his vote total to President Johnson's. He urges them to repudiate administration by voting for him in the Republican primary.

PAGE 41 WONT 'ENTER' TESTS Noncandidate Course Charted By Johnson By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Johnson has charted a political course calculated to preserve his status as noncandidate for re-election right up to the eve of the Democratic convention in August. The President, who Wednesday bypassed the April 30 Massachusetts primary, will not voluntarily enter any of the 15 primaries, high Democratic officials report. But they said he will not withdraw his name from the Wisconsin, Oregon and Nebraska contests which would require a formal statement of noncan- didacy. "It was felt that since he is the' incumbent President of the United States," said one official, "it would be unseemly -especially at this time -- for him to be politicking on street comers in state primaries." More practically, Johnson as a noncandidate can travel and speak as he pleases without radio and television having to give equal time to Democratic opponent Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D-Minn., and to the Republicans. In his capacity as commander in chief, the President also can use Air Force One and attendant planes to move around the country popping in unexpectedly on military bases and captive audiences at dinners and conventions in the immediate area of the bases. The White House denies Johnson has mapped any such firm political plans. "While there surely will be a lot of speculation and interpretation of the President's plans," said an aide, "I know that there have been no deci sions at all on what the President may or may not do in the future." In other political developments: -- McCarthy accused John son forces in New Hampshire of using tactics similar to those of the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, R-Wis., with their advertising campaign that the Communists are watching that primary. "Don't vole for fuzzy thinking and surrender," says one radio spot ad. "Support our fighting men." Meanwhile, McCarthy has cinched 16 of Minnesota's 62 con vention delegates and California supporters claim they have more than enough petition signatures to put him at the heat of the Go'lden State's Demo- craci primary ballot. -- A last-minute move to put Sen. Robert F, Kennedy, D-N.Y,, on the California presi dential primary ballot was made by a group called Citizens for Kennedy. It filed papers just before the deadline anc has until April 5 to obtain the necessary 13,746 petition signatures. Johnson's decision to stay out of the Massachusetts primary could give McCarthy that delegation's 72 convention votes on the first ballot -- a tasty ice cream that is likely to mel quickly in the convention's Au gust sun. The President's friends think a write-in drive in New Hampshire will give him at least 7C per cent of the popularity vote in that state's primary nex Tuesday. Johnson's strategists have ad vised against a write-in effort in Massachusetts -- where voting machines and the mechanica difficulties of printing sticker: play against a successful write in vote.
