Stokely Carmichael," who attended a communist conference in Havana, threatening the United States with guerrilla warfare in all its major cities, and then went off to Hanoi, is a member of the executive board of the N. C. N. P. Commie Meets Committee Arnold Johnson, public Tela- tions director and a member of the national board of the Communist party, has been conferring with the steering committee of the N. C. N.

Bush and several other youths were arrested near the fire. Police found Bush was carrying a gun. tTRIBUNE Staff Photo Martin Luther King scum, Thursday evening, Aug. 31. One question to be debated at tie convention is whether N. C. N. P. and its affiliated groups should run King and Dr. Benjamin Spock for President and Vice President on a third party ticket in. 1968. The N. C. N. P. steering committee had decided to per mit a free convention decision on the question of running King and Spock on a third party ticket Preliminary soundings had disclosed majority support in the various components of the so-called "new politics" movement for a third party effort in 1968. At the request of the Communist party, however, the steering committee reconsidered, the question, at a meeting attended by Johnson in the Palmer House, July 29 and 30, and agreed on parliamentary maneuvers which are expected to prevent a decision by the convention in favor of a third party campaign. 3d Party "Premature Communist leaders contend a third party campaign in 1968 would be premature and futile. The Communists favor the cre ation of strong local organiza tions and the support of candidates in local elections in 1968. to prepare for national electoral efforts in the congres sional Sections of 1970 and the Presidential election of 1972. One of the most astonishing achievements of the revolu tionary "new politics" grasp for power in this country is its infiltration of the United States Congress. One of its agents, a young man named Paul Timo thy Gorman, has a room 1204A in the Longworth House Office building, which is an annex to the office of Rep. Robert W. Kastenmeier D., Wis.. Gorman's sponsor, Arthur I. Waskow, a member of the executive board of the N. C. N. P.y is a former administrative assistant to Rep. Kastenmeier. Congressmen Are Listed In a "franked" postage-free letter postmarked Aug. 2, 1967, Gorman wrote to Bob Ross, research director in the Chicago headquarters of the N. C. N. P.: "Waskow thought you might be interested in having a look at this statement issued yesterday by a group of congressmen for whom I work, who have sort of disaffected from the congressional party and the President thru votes against war appropriations and the like." The statement, headed "War, Riots, and Priorities," was drafted mainly by Waskow and Gorman and was signed by Kastenmeier and nine other Democratic congressmen: Phillip Burton, California: John Conyers Jr., Michigan; John G. Dow, New York: Don Edwards, Califor nia; August F. Hawkins, Cali fornia: Henry Helstoski, New Jersey; . Benjamin S. Rosen thal, New York; Edward R. Roybal, California; and Wil liam F. Ryan, New York. The statement deplored what it described as "an increasingly reactionary response" to the "twin prospect" of "continued stalemate in Viet Nam" and "greater violence in the cities." It called for "a national move ment reconstruction to help reverse the dangerous drift to reaction currently threatening our public life." Seek Mailing Lists On July 6,'- Michael Wood, convention coordinator of the N. C. N. P., wrote a letter to Marie Rynyon, in the New York office of William F. Pepper, executive director of the N. C. N. P., in which he urged her to "beg, borrow, or steal' the mailing lists of the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Guardian, SANE, and Ramparts. Robert Scheer, managing editor of Ramparts, is a member of the N. C. N. P. steering committee, so the mailing list of this publication should not be hard to get. Wood said it was necessary to expand the mailing list of the N. C. N. P., "a vastly expanding movement that grows more militant daily: the chance to get Johnson the ugliest, most hated manof our times, the real . . . symbol of the horror of Viet Nam and the ghettoes, and of the general ugliness and sickness of American life."
