Headed by an assemblage of antique classic cars, the one-hour march down Main Street U.S.A. said it all for the $400 million theme park opened three weeks ago for a "shakedown" period for the 7,000 employes.

Cinderella's Castle in background, Meredith Willson in rare form Nationalist Delegation Walks Out 35rm $ork Zmta Dispatch To The Sentinel UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. - In a tense and emotion - filled session, the general assembly late Monday night voted overwhelmingly to admit Communist China and to expel the Chinese Nationalist Government of Taiwan. Only moments before, Lou Chieh, the Chinese Nationalist representative, announced from the rostrum that his government Kissingrr Returns Today, Pg. 3-A would take no further part in the proceedings of the assembly. He thereupon led his delegation out of the hall. THE VOTE, which brought delegates to their feet in wild applause, was 76 in favor, 35 opposed and 17 abstentions. The vote was on a resolution sponsored by Albania and 20 other nations calling for Peking's entry and the departure of the Nationalist Government of Chiang Kai-shek. The ultimate decision became almost a certainty when the Assembly earlier in the evening had voted 59 to 54 . against an American resolution which would have made the expulsion of the Nationalists an "important question" requiring a two-thirds majority. Thus the Chinese Nationalists could be expelled by a simple majority. , THE ASSEMBLY'S action, which came with dramatic suddenness after seven hours of continuous meeting, appeared to open the way for the adoption of the Albanian resolution, which calls for the seating of Communist China as the sole legitimate representative of China and the expulsion of Nationalist China. Earlier in the evening, the Assembly narrowly defeated a motion to postpone voting on all Chinese representation resolutions until today. THE PROPOSAL for postponement, which came in the closing hours of the China debate, was thought by many delegates to be intended to give the United States (Continued On Page 4-A, Col. 1) .BULLETIN Schirra Escapes Injury CREEDE, Colo.

G. LAWRENCE Sentinel Staff ST. PETERSBURG - New York Mayor John V. Lindsay, making his first test of Florida's political waters since becoming a Democrat, urged Florida mayors Monday night to band together to demand more help from the state and federal government. Lindsay told the Florida League of Cities it is the municipalities who have people. "We feel the consequences of national and world politics but we do not have the power to change those consequences." "The power, and the money, flows through Tallahassee and Albany to Washington and Saigon," the potential presidential candidate said. "The polluted waters and faltering schools, the jobless men and women and neglected children they come last along with us." Lindsay said the problems of the city can be cured by only one thing, money. "We lack all the money we should have to fight crime and help drug addicts, to staff our schools adequately, to keep our libraries and museums open as long as they should be. "This makes city life less attractive to the middle class community. They leave and their places are taken by the poor, fleeing starvation in Mississippi, dictatorship in Cuba, or privation in Puerto Rico: people who cannot find jobs and who require more services from a city with a shrinking tax base."

Johnson recalls his five years in the White House. In this installment Johnson recalls the events in Vietnam in late 17 and early 1968, and his decisions of March VMS. The first phase of the Communists' winter-spring offensive began in September 1967. North Vietnamese forces first tried to strangle the Marine base at Con Thicn, just south of the DMZ, and later launched major attacks against remote positions along the Laotian and Cambodian borders. They gained no military advantage in these attacks and suffered heavy losses, but our information warned us of heavier battles to come. Did Gen. William Westmoreland have all the men and supplies he needed to deal with a massive enemy offensive? IN OCTOBER 1967 the Viet Cong began to move main-force units into the more populated areas of South Vietnam. We learned that North Vietnam was again stepping up its infiltration to the south. If I had to pick a date that symbolized the turmoil we experienced throughout 1968, I think Jan. 23 would be the day th morning the USS Pueblo was seized. The Pueblo incident formed the first link in a chain of events of crisis, tragedy and disappoint ment that added up to one of the most agonizing years any president has ever spent in the White House. The crisis began for me, in the darkness of my bedroom at 2:24 a.m. on Jan. 23 when I was awakened by my bedside telephone. The call was from the duty officer in the Situation Room. THE FIRST reports were sketchy. The USS Pueblo, a highly sophisticated electronics intelligence ship, had been cruising off the coast of North Korea, gathering data from the mainland.
