Jackson, in an interview on NBCs "Today" show, said: "We just didn't get our story over." The senator, who had said he did not think front-runner Carter could win in a Northern industrial state, said he would stay in the campaign, but would change his campaign style to get his ideas across more clearly. Carter said repeatedly in Pennsylvania that he was fighting the bosses: labor leaders who endorsed Jackson and the state party machine. "We showed ... that we could meet any sort of machine pollitical organization challenge and do it successfully," he said on the "Today" show. "I think this will be the last gasp of any sort of organized slop-Jimmy Carter movement." In an interview on the CBS "Morning News," Carter was asked whether Humphrey should either get in the race actively or stay out. "1 don't care," he replied. "If he gets in nibeathim. If he stays out, I'll win." Humphrey noted that there are still many candidates in trie race, including two not on the ballot in Pennsylvania — Sen. Frank Church of Idaho and California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. "There's still two-thirds of the delegates to be chosen," he said. Asked if he was getting ready A nti-aborfion plan promoted ^^"4. WASHINGTON (AP) Senators opposed to abortion are taking their bid for a constitutional amendment against the procedure directly to the Senate floor. Senate action was slated today on a proposal by Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., to include a "right-to-life" provision in the Constitution. But Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., said he would move to have the Helms measure rejected, and he claims he has the votes to do it. Bayh is chairman of the Senate judiciary subcommittee, which last September rejected Helms' proposal and several other antiabortion measures. Bayh says he personally opposes abortions but that he doesn't feel amending the Constitution is the way to deal with the emotionally charged issue. And he says he supports the wouldn't be honest if I didn't tell you I'm a little bit disappointed. But I'm not dismayed and I'm not discouraged.'

Formation of a Humphrey Pennsylvania also gave Car- campaign committee was ex- ter his first victory in a large peeled to be announced today industrial state, the kind in day. Carter said his only problem was a lack of money caused by the cutoff of federal matching funds. "We're broke," he said. Carter said his Pennsylvania win pushed his delegate total over 400 and said he would nave more than 1,000 by the time of the last primary June 8. It takes 1,505 delegates to win the landmark 1973 ruling by the Supreme Court, which limited state powers to enact antiabortion statutes. Helms went around Bayh's judiciary subcommittee in a parliamentary maneuver that brings the issue directly to the floor (or a vote. His proposed constitutional amendment states that "every human being ... shall be deemed from the moment of fertilization to be a person and entitled to the right to life." It also would give Congress and the states the authority to enforce antiabortion laws. The measure requires two- thirds approval by both the House and Senate and then ratification by three-fourths of the 50 state legislatures to become part of file Constitution. Even advocates of such an amendment concede that obtaining the needed votes in Congress appears slim, at best. But Helms said that, if nothing else, he wants "the Cull Senate to deliberate the proposition before the eyes of the nation and go on record for or against the Supreme Court decision which created our present crisis." Sen. James L. Buckley, R- Con-N.Y., said he would offer a substitute to Helms' proposal that would make abortion permissible in cases when it is deemed necessary to save the life of the mother. Toe Helms proposal would be a blanket ban on all abortions, although a Helms aide said that abortions to save a mother's life would probably be permissible. Today in history By Tie Associated Prets Today is Wednesday, April 28, the 119th day of 1W6. There are 247 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1952, war with Japan officially ended as a treaty which had been signed by the United States and « other nations went into effect. On this date: In 1758, the fifth President of the United States, James Monroe, was born in Westmoreland County, Va. In 17M, Maryland ratified the U.S. Constitution. In 1789, the mutinous crew of the British ship Bounty set Capt. William Bligh and 18 sailors adrift in a launch in the South Pacific. In 1876, Britain's Queen Victoria was declared Empress of India. In 1945, in World War II, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his mistress were captured and executed near Lake Como as they tried to escape from Italy to Switzerland. In 1965, U.S. Marines were ordered to land in the Dominican Republic during a revolution. One year ago: Gunmen invaded the Israeli consulate in Johannesburg, South Africa. They lulled two passers-by and took more than 20 persons hostage before surrendering and releasing the hostages. Track repair plans set CHICAGO IAP)- The U.S. Department of Transportation has cosigned $17.5 million in trustee certificates lo be used for track repair on the Rock Island Line's main slretch between Chicago and Fort Worth, Tex. A railroad spokesman said the money is the first significant increase in funds for track repairs and normal maintenance costs since the Rock Island filed for reorgani7ation in March 1975. following the Carter win in which Humphrey's greatest Tuesday's Pennsylvania pri- strength traditionally has been mary, his seventh first-place " finish in nine primaries. found.

Paul Simon, D-IU., one of to take an active part in the the leaders of the Humphrey campaign before June, even if "We think there is a necessity movement. . If Humphrey agrees to let the campaign committee operate on his behalf, it would make him legally a candidate under federal election law, although he has not announced his can- he does become a quasi- candidate by authorizing a committee. But they say a 'campaign committee working for him could give hope to potential Humphrey voters and help pre- ter one. I'm a pretty wellknown person, f don't have to be charging around the country to get voter identification ... We might want to give consideration to some exploratory committee." Udall, who has not yet won a formal primary, said, "I vent a snowballing Carter drive. "Having a committee would solidify support," one aide close to Humphrey said, "particularly among the uncommitted (delegates) where the greatest danger exists of bolting to the front-runner." Ford said Carter's victory apparently insures him the nomination. "I don't see how the Democratic smoke-filled rooms in New York can take the nomination away from him," Kord said. Pennsylvania voters also nominated party candidates for the U.S. Senate seat of retiring Republican Hugh Scott, minority leader. Philadelphia Congressmen William Green was a landslide winner on the Democratic side and Pittsburgh Rep. II. John Heinz 3rd won in a tight race with former Philadelphia Dist. Atty.
