An exaggeration, perhaps, but It is hard tp resist the (eeling that a new day in American politics is dawning here in California. .Propelled by a tide of antiwar sentiment and an awei aomely efficient grass-roots organisation staffed by 0.000 volunteers. Senator McGovern is headed for a decisive victory in Tuesday's primary. A statewide poll conducted by the Mer-vin Field Organisation, published here yesterday, shows him, to be 20 points ahead of Hubert Humphrey, which by California standards- is approaching a landslide. Senator Humphrey neverthe-. less said he was carrying on the fight. "There is no such lead for Mr McGovern, and everyone knows it. Just take my word for it: there's no such lead. If I thought that that was the case, I would quit and go and have dinner," he said. McGovern, confident of victory here, is now claiming that he will win the nomination on the first ballot in Miami, which a big victory both in California and New York would make a distinct possibility. McGovern's staff has already begun to put out tentative feelers to Senator Muskie, Mayor Lindsay, and other fallen Democratic con- Concorde pollution risk will be Stockholm issue From MALCOLM STUART, Stockholm, June 2 The potential pollution of the atmosphere by supersonic aircraft like Concorde is certain to be discussed by the important committee on the identification and control of pollutants at the United Nations conference on the human environment which opens here on Monday. Mr Peter Thatcher, the American programme director for the committee, said yesterday that the matter would almost certainly be raised when there was a discussion on pollutants of international aigmficance "We are concerned about the indirect effect which cojild inadvertently cause climatic changes," Mr Thatcher said. "The main theme of this aection of our committee's programme is that man needs a much better understanding of the present and future harmful effects caused by scientific developments such as SST aircraft.

Some Southern conservative Democrats are hoping to launch a " stop McGovern " campaign, which- appears a forlorn effort. The South Dakota senator is now expected to arrive at the Miami convention in July with 1,300 pledged delegates, -needing only just over 200 to win on the first ballot. Much is at stake, and the atmosphere reflects it. Not since Robert Kennedy was on the stumps here four years ago has California seen such emotional rallies. All week, the crowds at the McGovern campaign stops have been building up in numbers and intensity, matching a growing horde of television teams, photographers, and reporters But last night the med.a men were totally swamped in a 3,000strong crowd of Mexican Americans in the small town square of San Bernardino, lust outside" Los Angeles. Chanting and waving placards saying "McGovern for truth .and honesty," the crowd grew about possible effects but tio 6ncdrVI will need to"fiy:jj it is positive knowledge of what.1o;.be anything more tjjan-a these effects might be." transatlantic aircraft. ' ; Publicity about the unknown effects of Concorde will be an embarrassment for the, manufacturers now that they are seeking firm orders. Britain and France have attempted to have the subject kept off the agenda. They are hardly likely to be happy with a draft recommendation for action which will be considered by Mr Thatcher's committee. This reads: "It is recommended that Governments be especially mindful of activities in which there is an appreciable risk of effect on climate and " carefully evaluate the likelihood and magnitude of climatic effects and disseminate their findings before embarking on such activities. " consult fully other interested States when activities carrying a risk of such effects are being contemplated or implemented." It is considered in Stockholm that this last clause may well influence the African and Asian nations over whose countries AT FIRST glance Tokyo is like any European city that arose from the rubble of the last war: the buildings are tall, functional, nondescript, identifiable more by the neon signs than by any architectural distinction. The fresh arrival may jusifiably wonder if any of the "real" Japan is lurking behind the concrete facade. Then a gust from the bay sweeps the sound of a shrilly musical siren up the avenue. A police car races by and oblivious to traffic, squeals into a swift U-turn while its loudspeaker ominously blares out instructions. A truck draws up and the meticulous ritual of " blocking" begins. When it is over, one would expect the disgruntled driver to disappear into his cab to nurse his grievance out of sight of the gathering passers-by Instead, he manfully acknowledges his guilt by three deep, deferential bows to the policeman.

Finally it. burst into frenzied shouts of " Que viva McGovern ! " as he promised to end the inequalities of American society and the indignities suffered by minorities. "I believe we are offering a new politic." McGovern.shouted over the crowd's cheers. " I think we have opened up the Democratic Partv to citizens who-have never before participated. I think we have demonstrated, it is possible to nominate any person for the Presidency of the'United States without the prior approval of the great political bosses of this land." The enifchus-lasm eventually touched those who are normally professionally immune. "I get a lift in spdrits, as an American, when something like this happens," said the correspondent of a Detroit newspaper. As the rally ended, a vast crowd swarmed round McGovern, trying to touch him in the way they used to try with . Mr Thatcher gave a pointer in this direction yesterday when he spoke of a change, of attitude by African countries toward problems of the environment. When the conference was first proposed the Africans said that environmental pollution was merely a problem for industrialised nations. Now, Mr Thatcher said, they were keenly aware that nowhere in the world could be entirely free from other nations' pollutants. The committee on the identification and control of pollutants, officially Committee No. 3, may be the most immediately effective of the three committees that will report to the plenary session. It will spend much of its time discussing ocean dumping and the fouling of oceans by rivers. There is a general assumption that some delegations will attempt to initiate discussions on the Vietnam war and possibly apartheid with the claim that these are producing environmental consequences accept many forms of greeting with equanimity from the cold nod and the Prussian-style clicked heel to the blood-vessel-bursting grip and the bearhug and kisses from which Mr Nixon was lucky enough to escape on his arrival in Moscow. They are puzzled, however, by the often almost rectangular bow of the Japanese, to which the self-conscious Westerner is at a loss to know how to respond. Bowing is both an expression of respect and an act of courtesy. Until this duality is recognised it is easy to confuse it with obsequiousness. Uninitiated members of Women's Lib would be particularly infuriated by the sight of office girls doubling up with an apparent onrush of stomach pains at the sight of their boss. But here is a scene in an hotel lobby, which provides something of an explanation.

He Is a preacher's son from South Dakota", and his speeches often have the earnest dullness of a Sunday afternoon sermon. Yet what McGovern lacks in personal magnetism he makes up for in the sincerity and concern that he projects in his speeches. "This one oi the most hopeful things we've seen in America for many years," one of his aides said after another enthusiastic rally at Covlna, Southern California. "Let us hope and pray some nut doesn't shoot him." The McGovern campaign has been built up on the one central theme of opposition to the Vietnam war.

The fugitive cow is the sole survivor of 10 which made a daring escape from a cattle truck on the way to, the Seville slaughterhouse yesterday. The animals had been rejected for breeding for the bullring because they showed a lack of aggression. But they caused a sensational panic when they broke out of the truck and charged through the streets of Seville. Police killed eight with pistol shots, and one was dispatched with a dagger. One infuriated animal charged an engaged couple sitting by the river bank. The young man ran away, but his girl friend was tossed into the river. She was rescued, wet, angry but unharmed, by a boatman who also tried to grapple with the cow. Then the cow fell into the river. kimonos would put Western " model " dresses to shame). Then a smile of recognition directed towards an elderly woman sitting at a table in the company of a little girl of about eight. The smile is a sign for them to rise. There follows an exchange of bows, the bow for the little girl in no way less decorous than the one for her older companion. Yet the obvious pleasure at their meeting gives the whole performance an air of informality. In Western terms, that bow the little girl received was no more than a hug or a tender pat on the head. A formality at first equally puzzling is the "trial by business card " an ordeal from which only the bona fide tourist is exempt Visitors with official calls to make enter Japan without a stock of such cards at their peril.

"Never again will we send the precious young lifeblood of this country to die on behalf of a corrupt military dictatorship 10.000 miles away." It is a pledge that never fails to find its echo, whether it be to a black, Mexican, or white suburban middle-class audience. Mr Nixon's belief, expressed two months ago, that the war was not an election issue, couldn't be more off beam in California. The other themes sounded by McGovern in this campaign his proposals for tax reform and to cut the defence budget by 40 per cent, and his determination to scrap the present welfare system with its mass of red tape are less understood. To reporters covering him, their details are so complicated, the figures so uncertain, and the sum total so unwritable, that as a result they tend Smith flies to South Africa for talks with Vorster From PETER NIESEWAND, Salisbury, June 2 Important discussions between the Rhodesian leader, Mr Ian , Smith,' ' and ' the' South African Prime Minister, Mr John Vorster, will take place this weekend. Mr Smith flew to Johannesburg today officially to watch the rugby international between England and South Africa. But, political sources said, he will have unofficial talks with Mr Vorster which could affect Rhodesia's course over the next few months. The two leaders will discuss the Pearce Commission's rejection of the Anglo-Rhodesian settlement proposals, and future handling of the issue. It is expected that Mr Vorster, who would like to see an independence settlement, will advise Mr Smith to tread warily and avoid, for a few months at least, action which would severely strain relations with Britain. So far, apart from confirming that his Government will continue to "rule firmly" under the 1969 Republican Constitution, Mr Smith has kept his options open.

Every time the visitor is introduced to a new member of the staff, his hand will automatically move to his breast pocket like that of a suspicious bodyguard. He will whip out his card and the visitor is expected to do the same. The cards are then scrutinised and the nature of the welcome from the depth of the bow to perhaps the strength of the coffee and the size of the cake that may follow will be proportionate to the visitors rank In spite of my pretended indifference to this strange ceremony, I was pleased to find on one such visit that after these cumbersome introductions the British and Japanese flags suddenly materialised on the table.

To voters, the proposals are probably even less understood, which is perhaps just as well, for if they seem' radical to British eyes they are almost revolutionary in terms of American politics. The welfare reform plan, which would give a $1,000 welfare supplement across the board to every jobless citizen, represents a total break with the old American ethic that it is shameful to be unemployed.' McGovern's tax proposals (which would increase corporate income tax by $17,000 millions by repealing tax loopholes, and would impose an inheritance tax of 77 per cent on fortunes above $500,000), although mild by British standards, are also a radical departure in American fiscal policy. Finally, his proposal to cut defence spending by 40 per cent by halving American troops in Europe, stopping all construction of Polaris' and Poseidon the official opening of Parliament here this morning underlined this. He. announced plans for forthcoming legislation but did not indicate an immediate major swing to the Right There was one " racial " item on the agenda. Mr Dupont said Parliament would be invited to consider an Urban Councils Bill which would permit local authorities to segregate swimming pools, cinemas, buses, and public parks. Observers do not think this legislation has a high priority at present, and say it could be postponed. , , Sources say that although Mr Smith is under pressure from his Right wing to " go it alone and reject any thought of further independence settlement negotiations with Britain, he has not yet firmly committed himself to this course. A report in today's Rhodesian Financial Gazette says the Rhodesians this week sent a "very stiff" message to the British Government, giving their views on the breakdown of the November proposals and on the Pearce Commission report. avenues, wide enough for five vehicles abreast in each direction, carry a swift flowing acid lava of traffic, halted momentarily bv the lights to surge out again unpredictably along the lines of least resistance.

The remarkable thing, though, about the McGovern campaign is that it has so far been sustained less by particular issues than by the conviction that it represents a commitment to change. It is this feeling that has rallied a vast army of volunteers many of whom worked before in the McCarthy and Kennedy campaigns of 1968 to work all hours, canvassing precincts on foot, manning telephones, and all the other hard drudgery of getting out the votes on polling day. By next Tuesday, McGovern volunteers will have personally visited 80 per cent of the homes of 5,000,000 Democrats in California : a task that most professional politicians had previously declared to be impossible". The paper said : " The text of the message, approved at a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, also outlined the Rhodesian Government's viewpoint on future relations between the two countries." It said the message was in line with the publiclv expressed views of Mr Smith that Rhodesia would make no more concessions. The Rhodesian Parliament will debate the Pearce Commission's report early in its present session. Mr Smith has tabled a "take note" motion in the House. In his speech today. President Dupont said the Commission's " no " verdict had come as a disappointment to " all responsible and fair-minded people in Rhodesia." He declared : " Nevertheless, we have overcome similar disappointments in the past, and it is my firm belief that, in spite of the British Government's decision not to implement the agreement, the determination and resourcefulness of the people of Rhodesia will ensure the future wellbeing and prosperity of our country." accessories include a yard-long feather duster.
