On the Republican side, Richard M. .Nixon returned to New York to prepare for disclosure of his "brand .new campaign- reportedly aimed at winning Democratic and independent votes as well as Republican. ' Nixon planned to outline the new effort to reporters Wednesday. . . . New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller flatly predicted Monday for the first time that he is going to win the GOP nomination and then the presidency in November. . Rockefeller said in Milwaukee that Nixon has shown an inability to win in big cities, of such key states as Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York. And, a subcommittee of the Republican National Committee worked in Portland, Ore., today on picking a keynoter and a temporary chairman for the na tional GOP convention opening Aug. 5 in Miami Beach. The only sure winner in the California primary, today was Republican Gov. Ronald .Reagan who, as a favorite son, was unopposed to control 86 GOP convention votes. Polls favored Kennedy to win the Democratic race but a Los Angeles times poll indicatec voters who reported themselves undecided could swing the election. In South Dakota, backers of Humphrey, who was born in the state, have waged a heavy campaign for the delegate slate Hulk Likely U-548 ; NORFOLK,..Va. (AP) - A1 peared to be in an upright posi- hulk found off Cape Henry by divers hunting;for the missing submarine Scorpion may be the German submarine U-548, destroyed by U;S. warships April 30, 1945, seven: days before V-E Day. The submarine' Pargo detected the hulk last Friday 70 miles east-northeast of Cape Henry. Divers descended 180 feet to the ocean floor from the submarine rescue ship Sunbird. They reported the hulk was about 250 feet long. One of the divers, Chief Machinists Mate Ronald C. Hall, told Capt. John Caruso, a physician aboard the Sunbird, that tion'and partly embedded in the ocean floor; "His visibility was 40 or 50 per cent," Caruso said, "and he said he could make out a long, sleek craft with what appeared to be sail-like configuration on top and double rod-like objects toward the front which he said appeared to him like 20mm gun mounts. "He told me the hull went back as far as he could see, and when he approached it, it appeared to be like a vertical wall of steel about 40 feet high. "He said he banged his helmet on it and kicked it with his boot and found it was metal. He the barnacie-encrusted sub ap--was unable to read any mark- ings on the vessel." Although Navy officers at Norfolk declined to speculate on whether the hulk is the U-548, Hall's description of it fits the IX-C submarine type to which the U-548 belonged. That type was 240 feet long, 22 feet abeam, and armed with deck guns. It carried a crew of 5 officer and 46 men. Only one German submarine is known to have been sunk off the Virginia Coast during World War II. Mrs. Theda Bassett, director of the submarine museum at New London, Conn., said German and U.S. naval records show the U-548 was destroyed by four U.S. warships April 30, 1945. Mass Arrests Fizzle By JAMES R. POLK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) 1 - Forecasts of the first mass arrests in the Poor People's Campaign have fizzled in a demonstration that turned into a civil rights songfest on the steps of the Justice Department. . . . . ; Protesters planned to return today in another bid to meet with Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark.' Campaign leaders voiced repeated predictions, of arrests amid a rising tone of militancy in the eight-hour demonstration that lasted into the night Monday. Protesters blocked the closed doors of one building entrance and marched in the street in front of police, but no clash 'came. Most marchers left when Hotea Williams, field marshal for the protests, said, "We have found out they are not going to arrest us yet." About 100 of the 300 demonstrators stayed behind to start an all-night vigil in', support of seven jailed in Mexican-Americans Los Angeles controversy, .but left later, when word came that they' had been released. The seven were charged with conspiring to disturb the peace in a school protest walkout. The singing siege .was the longest demonstration to date in the four-week-old drive to Win more federal aid and attention for the needy. Asst. Police Chief J. V. Wilson said, "I'm sure they came here to be arrested and that's all right with me, but I'm not going to arrest them for blocking a Argentine Heart Transplant Fails BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - tAP) — Argentina's first heart transplant patient, Antonio Enrique Serrano, died early today, four days after the operation touched off debate over whether the country was ready for such surgery. The last previous report on the 54-year-old salesman had . said he was progressing satisfactorily although he had not regained consciousness after receiving the heart of a 47-year- old man who died of a brain hemorrhage. Serrano's death left six survi- MINIATURE NOW OPEN AT WALKER PARK Hours: Weekday! Ttoll Sat. 2 to 10 Sun- 2 to 6 vors from the world's 20 heart transplants. Before the operation, doctors had told Serrano's family he had a life expectancy of only four days because of incurable heart, disease. The head of the transplant team, U.S.-trained Dr. Miguel Bellizzi, 42, replied to critics by saying: "I have no time for polemics ... I care for the sick and if I have to perform an 'operation I do so and try to gave the patient's life." locked door." Justice Department officials clanged shut the 20-foot-high iron doors at nightfall after six hours of futile negotiations over how many demonstrators would be admitted to talk to Clark. The demonstrators demanded! an audience for 100. But the department would admit no more than 25 and campaign leaders refused any compromise, leading to the late-night vigil. A spokesman for Clark said he was "not going to stand" for campaign leaders disrupting the "various government agencies, including his own, or to have them dictate the terms of when they meet with him and where they meet and how many will meet." The bearded Williams, who tried to negotiate entrance with Clark, said he told the attorney geenral the nation's cities were going to burn. But he said of Clark, "His soul and his heart are not right." And, referring to the unsolved assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,. April 4, Williams added, "No wonder they have not found the man who murdered Dr. King." pledged to President Johnson. Humphrey is not on the ballot but Johnson is and candidates on the slate have said they would vote for Humphrey at the convention.
