Humphrey, McGovern Hope To Hit Muskie in Mass. 'By CARL P. LEUBSDORF AP Political Writer Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey and George S. McGovern hope to deal Sen. Edmund S. Mus- kie's faltering presidential campaign a one-two knockout blow Tuesday in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, two stales where the Maine senator once hoped to flatten his two major opponents. In Pennsylvania, even Muskie superiors believe Humphrey will run first in the nonbinding presidential preference race. They insist, however t h a t the support of Gov. Milton J. Shapp and Philadelphia Democratic Chairman Peter J. Camiel will enable Muskie lo win a majority of the 137 delegates lo be elected Tuesday. Humphrey, who has never won a primary in three bids for the presidency, needs a Pennsylvania victory badly after a third place finish in Wisconsin. "There won't be any West Viiv ginia, Indiana or elsewhere if we get knocked off in Pennsylvania," he said in a memo to his staff April 9. McGovern, hopeful of catching Muskie in the preference vote and snatching a chunk of delegates, plans to slump Pennsylvania from east lo west Monday. Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace, who is also in Ihe preference conlest, scheduled a four-city swing Saturday. In Massachusetts, McGovern supporters talk of sweeping most of the 102 delegates. They are concentrating their eifcrls in Boston and working class areas, rather than his campus and suburban strongholds, in hopes of using the primary lo show his broad electoral appeal. The preference contest, ir which"· MeGovern and Muskk have been by far the most active of 11 candidates en ;iie Democratic ballot, will deler- mine how the 20 at-large delegates and 82 district delegates, being elected separately, vote on the first ballot at the Democratic national convention. President Nixon is expectt.d to be an easy winner Tuesday in Massachusetts. There is no GOP presidential primary in Pennsylvania this year. Politicians feel the results Tuesday, especially in the large industrial state of Pennsylva nia, will strongly influence fu ture Democratic primaries, in eluding those May 2 in Ohi and Indiana, May i6 in Mich igan, June 6 in California an June 20 in New York. "Ohio is watching what we'rt doing," Pennsylvania labo leader Mike Johnson, a Humph rey backer, told a labor break fast for the Minnesota senate in Allentowri, Pa., Friday. "And Indiana is leaking over Ohio's shoulder." McGovern, second lo Muskie irt committed delegates so f a r , expects to vault into the lead Tuesday. He has predicted he'll win a majority of the 239 delegates being chosen in the two stales. Muskie wound up with dis astrous fourth place finishes in Florida and Wisconsin. He has little organization of his own in Pennsylvania or Massachusetts and has lacked funds for an extensive media campaign. . In Pennsylvania, Shapp and Camiel have provided an organizational base. "The question," one top Shapp aide said, "is whether it is enough." , Humphrey, with powerful labor backing provided by President I.W. Abe! of the United Steelworkers of America and all of the top stale o f f i c i a l s in the AFL-CIO, wants a big vote. "If we get a big vote, we're going to win," the Minnesota Democrat said in Allentown. "If we don't get a big vole, maybe the machine is going to win." Many observers expect a small vote, under 50 per cent of the 2.8 . million registered Democrats. Some t h i n k the number of voters in the delegate contest will be considerably lower than in the preference races. This could work to the advantage of Muskie, who stands to gain from organization backing in' Philadelphia, where Camiel predicts he'll win 80 per cent of the 28 delegates. A small vote could also help McGovern, whose supporlers have been at work for months despite the senator's longstanding decision to emphasize Massachusetts next Tuesday. Ted VanDyke, who moved lo Pennsylvania from Washington lo oversee the McGovern operation, feels his candidate is competitive in 30 of the 50 senatorial districts in which delegates will be chosen and predicted last week he would win between 15 ami 20 of the 137 delegates. In contrast with Humphrey, Muskie a n d ' M c G o v e r n , all o! whom are fielding complete or : practically complete delegate slates, Wallace has only four ackers running for 137 places, 'e also has no organization, it no one would be surprised he polls 10 per cent or more the preference race. He could .hurt Humphrey in ie blue collar areas around 'ittsburgh. And the recent !are-up in U.S. action in the 'iolnam war also may hurt lumphrey. It promoted the rst sustained heckling of the 972 campaign when he spoke ast week at Ihe University of "cnnsylvania. Two other Democrats nn the "ennsylvania ballot, Sen. Hcn- y M Jackson of Washington nd Rep. Shirley Chisholm of \'ew York, haven't campaigned " the slate. Jackson also has delegates running, Mrs. Chi- holm, who isn't in the prefer- nce race, has 13. Because of the large number f delegates at stake in Penn- ylvania the 137 chosen Tues- ay will elect 27 more and the ew Democratic stale Committee will arid 18 and its pro- imity to Ohio, its primary has occupied the bulk of time and resources for Ihe major contenders--except McGovern. He long ago deckled lo make a major race in Massachusetts and has only started to shift lime and resources into Pennsylvania when he became convinced victory would be his in the Bay Stale. Others on Ihe Massachusetts D e m o c r a t i c ballot include Humphrey,. Jackson, Mrs. Chisholm, New York Mayor John Lindsay, Sen. Vance Haiike of Indiana, former Sen. EugeneJ. McCarthy and Conneclicul ant i p o v e r l y worker E d ward Coll, the man who waved a black rubber rat during a televised debate of candidates before Ihe March 7 New Hampshire primary. Lindsay and llartke have withdrawn from the race. Reps. John Ashbrook of Ohio and. Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey of California are on the GOP preference ballot. McCloskey, who has withdrawn from the race, urged support last week for McGovern after doing the same for Lindsay before the Wisconsin primary. BBB Expands Staff; Will Widen Area 3ap Widens Between Demand, Supply of Basic Materials NEW YORK (AP) - A new jovernmenl report Ihe past veek indicated that the gap fas widening between national requirements for most basic materials and the remaining easily accessible world supplies American Metal Market, daily newspaper of the metal ndustry, said the report also wled that reliance on foreign supplies was "steadily increas- ng as the quality of basic ores drops in the U.s!" The government's new full scale survey of the basic male- rials needs for the rest of the century said the U.S. annual deficit accelerated steadily in the past 20 years and could grow to over $60 billion annual- y by the year 2000.

Mon., April 24,1»72 ., 11 By ANTHONY COLLINGS Associated Press Writer BONN (AP) - Battered by wo political setbacks, Chan- cllor Willy Brandt's rule was ireatened today by con- ervalivcs who hinted they night let his treaties with Mos- ow and Warsaw go through hile hitting Brandt on domcs- c issues. Brandt, leader of the Social Democrats, lost an important tale election Sunday and the ame night a government sup- orler in Parliament defected o the Christian Democrats. This reduced Brandt's strength n the lower house, the Buu- eslag, to 249 Socialists and members of the small Free Jemncralic party, Uic min- mum needed by his coalition [overnment to slay in power. Bui the opposition Chrisliai Democrats, winner of the elec- ion in Baden-\Vuerlfembers{ linted at a change in tactics hat couki save Brandt's policj of East-West relaxation while lilting the government on do 'nestic issues. The Baden-Wurtlemberg wir arc initialing a new consume outreacli program which wil extend Better Business Bureau s e r v i c e s t o communilie throughout Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

The treaties confirm German erritorial losses in World War The conservatives argil: lat Brandt, n Social Demorat, received loo l i t t l e in re- irn for this from Moscow and Warsaw. The defecting lawmaker was iVilhelm Helms, who resigned irom the Free Democrats. However, he left open the possi- jility he would vote for the rcalics while siding with the opposition on internal issues. The Christian Democrats seemed to be planning to attack Brandt on such issues as rising prices and his lagging record of promised social reforms. Moscow warned Sunday that failure to approve the Soviet German treaty would result ii ' ' e x t r e m e l y negative consequences ami . . . a collapse ol trust in West German policy or the part of the Soviet Union and other countries." The warning appeared in Pravda Tgan of the Soviet Communist 'arly. In the Baden-Wuertt^nitierg ctcclion, Brandt's Social. : D«mo- ;rals raised their percentage of he total vole from 29 per cent n 1968 local elections to .37.5 per cent. '_' But it was not enough to take over the slate government with he Free Democrats, -who slipped from 14.4 to 8.9 per cent of the vote. Together, they .will occupy 55 seals in Ihe Stuttgart state parliament'against the 65 seats of the Christian Democrats, who polled 53 per cent. The Christian Democrats:had 60 seats and 442 per cent in 1968' Voter turnout was 80 per cent. Almost 11.4 million acres of forest cover three-fourths of West Virginia's total land area.
