Kennedy dedicated a broad boulevard to her late husband today with the wish that he could have been present. Wit?! Prince Norodom Sihan­ ouk, Cambodia's chief of state, at her side, the president's widow dedicated the boulevard in Camoodia's new port and made a brief nonpolitical reply to the prince's welcome and praise of President Kennedy. Mrs. Kennedy and her party flew to Slhanoukvjlle, on the southern coast, after three quiet days of sightseeing at the famed tempU ruins at Angkor. Prince Sihanouk at the dedi- eatiof paid high tribute to President Kennedy and said his memory in Cambodia has not been impaired by the break in diplomatic relations between Phnom Penh and Washington. Although the prince warned at a i-ews conference Saturday that no political meaning should be read into Mrs. Kennedy's "private" visit, he did say it represented a detente, or softening, in previous relations between the United States and Cambodia. nVEDAr FORJBCAST Southern Illinois — Tempera- Scott Enters State Race CHICAGO (AP) — William J. Scott, former Illinois state treasurer, said Sunday he is a candidate for the Republican nomination for attorney general. Scott, 40, said he was making the "unusually early announcement" so his 1968 political intentions will be "crystal clear." He announced his candidacy, he added, because he feels he can "best be of service at the present time as attorney general." The Evanston lawyer was elected treasurer in 1962. Scott was defeated by Charles Percy in a bid for the (JOP nomination for governor in 1964. Percy was defeated by the Democratic incumbent, Otto Kerner. Scott completed his term as state treasurer in 1966. Illinois law forbids a state treasurer from seeking a second consecutive term. He was a special assistant U.S. attorney for the Northern District of IlUnois in 1959. William G. Clark, a Democrat, is the present attorney general. ley. The Rev.

The Pope conferred for 45 minutes with Amleto Cardinal Clcognani, the Vatican secretary of state. He also was visited by his brothers. Sen. Ludovico Montini and Dr. Francesco Montini, a heart specialist. The Pope's progress since his operation aroused belief that he may be able to resume some of his usual activities sooner than expected. There is talk in Vatican circles that the 70.year-old pontiff, whose prostate gland was removed Saturday, might be al^ lowed to appear at his window briefly next Sunday or the one after to bless the noonday crowd in St. Peter's Square. Immediately after the operation, Vatican sources said they did not expect the pontiff to give a Sunday blessing until Dec. 3, the fii'st Sunday of Advent. The new prediction was an indication of the optimism and relief over the outcome of the Pope's operation.
