HythtvUli (Ark.) * Itertey. July a. If Hanoi Tries Fliers U.S. Must Use Restraint Fulbright Say WASHINGTON (AP) - Sens. J. W. Fulbright and Leverett Saltonslall called today for re- utraint in any American retaliation if North Viet Nam puts captured U.S. pilots on trial as war criminals. President Johnson offered at his news conference Wednesday a U.S. meeting with Hanoi officials on the treatment of war prisoners — or to discuss any other subject. The President denounced threats to put the prisoners on trial as "deplorable." But he ELECTION (Continued from Page One) times." Alfbrd saw the challenge from Rockefeller and the rejuvenated Arkansas Republican Party as the basic cause of the relative lameness in this year's Democratic primary. "We saw what happened to Goldwater in 1964 after his Republican Opponents In the primary had got through with him," Alford said. "We Democrats in Arkansas this year cannot make the mistake of' ruining our man before he faces Rockefeller. Therefore, with a couple of exceptions, we've been pretty polite with one another. "This may be why the usual fireworks haven't been sparked off in this primary. The two- party system is going to require that all of us join forces behind our nominee when the time comes." Alford said his relations with such past and present foes as Orval Faubus and Brooks Hays are "personally good." He feels that Frank Holt would be sorely handicapped against Rockefeller because of his identification with the ruling state faction. Alford, in gambling that his strategy of unity will make him the Democratic nominee, believes that he has burned no 'bridges linking him to the other Democratic candidates and claims that he could best represent a Democratic united front against Rockefeller.

Amid widespread predictions in Congress that prisoner trials would generate public demands for all-out conventional war against North Viet Nam. Fulbright said this would be a "disastrous course" for the United States to take. * Fulbright, * * Arkansas Democrat who heads the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, "If we start retaliatory action I'm afraid there would be no end to it." "The history of warfare Indicates that retaliatory action leads to barbaric conflict,", he said. "I would hope that, at least, there will be no attacks on civilians in any action we might take." Fulbright ia a leading critic of Johnson's Viet Nam war policies. Saltonstall, senior Republican on the Senate Armed • Services Committee, said in a separate interview that, everything possible must be done to make it clear to the North Vietnamese that they , cannot condemn American war prisoners as criminals at trumped-up trials. "But we must act legally," the Massachusetts senator Mid. "We cannot engage in indiscriminate slaughter :as a retaliatory measure. We don't want to make criminals of ourselves just because they do." * * * Sen. Stephen M. Young, D- Ohio. told the Senate Wednesday the South Vietnamese are executing many prisoners of war turned over to them by U.S. Daily Record Weather V. S. Weather Unreal Agricultural service Reiser. Ark. Skies over the state today are partly cloudy to cloudy. The only rain area this morning was the extreme south section. Following the front which moved through the state yesterday somewhat drier and cooler air is settling through the mid- South. Last night Reiser recorded 67 degrees for the low temperature. This is the lowest we have recorded since the 24th of June. It is not likely these more seasonable temperatures will affect more than the northeast portion of the state. And even here temperatures should begin warming up again tomorrow. Forecasts for the remaining three-fourths of Arkansas call for continued warm temperatures and a possibility of showers today. Texarkana was the only reporting station in the state yesterday that managed to reach the 100-degree mark. Other maximums were in the mid 80s to mid 90s. fexarkana can also claim the honor of being the warmest station this morning with a low of 77. Batesville had a cool 63 at the other end of our minimum range. Precipitation amounts yesterday were quite varied with heaviest amounts reported at Athens with 1.12, Little Rock .93 and Brinkley with .84. Other stations were more nearly in the V4 Inch bracket. From an agricultural standpoint the showers were not general enough nor were they heavy enough to be really beneficial and irrigation will continue in most areas where possible. Many farmers are taking advantage of the dry weather to work on land leveling activities.

Komsomolskaya P r a v d a called Alan Logan, second secretary of the U.S. Embassy, "an open enemy of our country." The paper said Logan "is deeply mistaken if he thinks he can get away with it. We think the authorities have all grounds to examine more closely the activity of the second secretary." forces. He laid the United States "in the name of human! ty and decency" should stop transferring Viet Cong prisoners to South Vietnamese units. * » > Young said he would favor the "gravest reprisals" if Hanoi puts U.S. prisoners on trial. He added such trials would make escalation of the war inevitable and "mean the deaths of many, many Vietnamese nationals." On the international front, Moscow Radio said it goes along with Hanoi's view that the captured American airmen are war criminals — not prisoners of war. The report monitored in Tokyo referred to recent statements by North Vietnamese diplomats that the captured airmen are war criminals and the issue lies solely with Hanoi authorities.

Rhodes called up nearly 2,000 guardsmen Tuesday night on request of Mayor Ralph S. tocher. The mayor talked by telephone Wednesday with Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey about the situation. Locher said the vice president offered "any assistance that you and the people of Cleveland may need." The mayor said he and Humphrey discussed federal aid to the slum area businessmen whose stores were wrecked, looted or burned. Wednesday night's vandalism brought an attempt to burn a hotel. A crude firebomb thrown from a car outside the hotel failed to ignite the building. But an armed guard was posted inside, behind locked doors. Policemen raced from one spot to another answering reports of window breaking, lot- ing and firebombii.g. Policemen reported seeing several groups working on firebombs made with gasoline-filled bottles. "We've got two cans of gasoline and two cocktails," was the report from a squad car. "They're throwing bottles at us," said another policeman. Guardsmen and police patrols ranged over an area 70 blocks long. Georgia Skelron OK LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Georgia Skelton, wife of comedian Red Skelton, Is resting comfortably at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, recovering from a bullet wound. Mrs. Skelton, who is reported in satisfactory condition, was accidentally shot early Tuesday when she moved a 38-caliber pistol, part of a gun collection, and it went off, police said. The accident happened in her suite at the Sands Hotel, where her husband is appearing. SPECK tram Pa(t (hie) pita) with Getty. deity, S3, hai never had a client MDtenced to deatii in 402 murder cases and has won acquittals in his last 14 cases before juries. His job is to defend persons who cannot afford to hire de- fens* lawyers. Speck's sister, Mrs. Eugene Thornton of Chicago, asked Getty to try and see Speck. Judge Daniel Ryan of the felony division of Circuit Court had assigned the lawyer Tuesday to defend Speck. Getty, after a brief examination of Speck's background, said he is considering entering a plea of insanity. He said a sanity hearing would be held. Getty said that during his meeting with Speck, the ex-convict was "at times coherent and at other times incoherent" and appeared to be very weak. Judge Ryan continued the case after he allowed State's Atty. Daniel P. Ward to file a formal complaint charging Speck with murdering Gloria Jean Davy, 22, of Dyer, Ind. Speck did not attend the hearing. Ward has said he will probably file multiple murder charges later. Miss Davy is believed to be the first of the eight student nurses at the South Chicago Community Hospital to die. Her nude body was found on a couch in the living room of the townhouse. Ward asked Judge Ryan that Speck be held in the Cook County Jail as soon as medical experts approve. After such a transfer, Speck could be seen only by jail personnel, Getty and persons bearing passes signed by the public defender, interrogation of Speck by police and the state's attorney. Wilson has maintained that Speck's fingerprints were found in (he townhouse and that Speck's photograph was identified by Corazon Amurao, 23, sole survivor Of the massacre. This is all the evidence needed, Wilson says. Dr. William N. Norcross, the City Jail Hospital physician, said late Wednesdayy that Speck is comfortable, but eats poorly. He said Speck's diet consists primarily of liquids. There is still a question whether Speck has suffered a heart attack. Dr. Norcross says there is an 80 per cent chance that Speck suffered a coronary thrombosis sometime Tuesday, file same day Miss Amurao confronted Speck in his hospital room. Judge Ryan said he would name two cardiologists to e x- amine Speck. Speck compained of chest pains Tuesday shortly after he met face-to-face with Miss Amurao, an exchange nurse from the Philippines. Miss Amurao, wearing her nurse's uniform, went into the room with Norcross. Speck reportedly had no reaction when he saw her. There has been no official confirmation to newspaper reports that Miss Amurao — who crouched under a bed an prayed while her friends were being massacred — identified Speck in the hospital room as the slayer.
