Boswell Begins Rebellion Move By HORTENSE MYERS United Press International - A 'city hall" rebellion appeared lo x brewing today over Governor Welsh's endorsement of Brich E. Bayh for the U.S. senatorial nomination at the Indiana Democratic State Convention Friday. Mayor Charles H. Boswell of indianapolis, Bayh's chief rival :or the nomination, had a luncheon meeting with the mayors of eight Hobsier cities this noon and said he would meet three other mayors later today. It could not be learned if the 11 mayors were all on Boswell's side. All, however, were described as delegates to the convention. The fact that Boswell is a fellow mayor and fellow member of the Indiana Municipal League lent credence to indications (he luncheon had significance. However, it was not expected to keep Bayh from winning the nomination due to his backing by Welsh and the governor's potent state ^organisation, .although any lasrtitch rebellion was bound to help Boswell. 'Marion Mayor M. Jack Ed' wards kept the convention delegates guessing up to the deadline hour arid finally decided to re main in the race for the senator's nomination with Bayh and Boswell, • Edwards' final decision only minutes before it was too late for him to get a refund on his $2,500 filling fee- heightened convention eve interest in the biennial nominating session, although it did not change the likelihood of Bayh's victory when the delegates ballot Friday in one ,of two contests which developed. The second contest developed when Dan Bretz, Kokomo altor-. ney, filed for an Appellate Court judge nomination from the North ern Indiana District, making it a three-way race with incumbent Judges John Gonas of South Beno and Hemy Bierly of Decatur for two - nominations from that district. . ., ' : Another late decision was made by Marion Criminal Court, Judge Thomas J, Faulconer, who. sided at the Connie Nicholas murder, trial. Faulconer, filled the lasi vacancy on the ticket by filing for an Appellate Court judge nomina tion half an hour before the dead line. Boswell did not identify the mayors with -, whom he lunched. He said,, however, that the mayors he would meet later were from Fort Wayne, Anderson and Mishawaka. "There are more and more enraged delegates resenting the palace guard and Governor Welsh," Boswell said. Edwards indicated he woulc throw ail his support to Boswell if a first-ballot test shows him weak and if one of the two is not nominated then. .He indicated he Jtayed 1 in the race only to help Boswell. A spokesman for Edwards said during the noon hour that the mayor "changed his mind" and would stay in the senatorial race. iMrs. Fannie Hummer, Kokomo, 5th District vice chairman, telephoned Democratic state headquarters at 12 noon where officials were waiting for additional filings or withdrawals up to the 1 p.m. deadline. ' Mrs., Hummer said Edwards will stay in the race and not go to the headquarters to retrieve his filing fee before it was too late. Earlier, it appeared Edwards would drop out and narrow the contest to the two leaders. If Edwards quits, and usually well-informed persons said he will, the 2,578 delegates at the convention Friday would choose between State Rep. Brich E. Bayh and Mianapolis Mayor Charles H. Joswell. The deadline for decisions was 1 p.m., and reports indicated Edwards might wait until the last minute to retrieve his filing fee of $2,500 which he had plunked,down on the line som« time ago for the privilege of having his name come before th« convention. Edwards' withdrawal would eliminate any .chance of more than one ballot to decide .Ihc; senatorial nomination. It njiight give a much- needed boost to 'Boswety who indicated som« tirjne ago he woulc support the mayor if he felt he could not get the nomination. The . senatorial race was the only one which developed by the eve of the convention at which delegates will i choose a state ticket of 13 nominess for the fall election. The senatorial nominee will oppose Sen. Homer E. Capehart, who was renominated by Republicans for a fourth term. But despite the rumors that Edwards had. definitely decided to get out, he denied such a decision had been made two. hours before the deadline. "At the moment I am still very much in the race," Edwards said He added that he had two meetings in the forenoon and during the noon .hours, one.with Boswel and another with delegates frm his home district, the 5th. Ed wards indicated if he finds his district still behind him, he wil stay in the race, otherwise "there's not much point in going ahead.". , - Edwards tolcl Uniled Press In ternational Wednesday night, how ever, "I am not out of the race yet. I am still a candidate." He has expressed hope that h e mighl win the nomination as a com promise candidate if a deadlock develops between Bayh and well. ' Stocks Decline On Light Volume NEW YORK (UPI)-The slock market disappointed many brokers early today with still another decline on light .volume, falling to within five poirits of the intra-day climax low in the Dow Jones industrial average established on the catastrophic morning of M " Du Pont, American Telephone, and General Foods fell more than a point in the blue chips, the lasi reacting to an instant coffee price cut. Losses in leading aulos, steels, chemicals and oils were only fractional. Weight-Shedding Program LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPD-Sixty persons,- most of them- described as "healthy obese," struggled through- the first Stages of an eight-week diet program today which may .cost them an average of. 16 to 17 pounds each. Men and women ranging in age from 20 to 60 volunteered to participate in a scientific study of the effects of nutritionally complete food substitutes on body' fat-lean ratios, -t ' Until Aug. 11, when the program ends, 45 P i.'due University 'staff members or members of their families and 15 men students in the Purdue summer school, the latter a control-group, will subsist only on liquid and wafer food substitutes. They are on a strict 900 cal- ones-a-day diet. A 12-day supply of food substitute includes 8 six- packs of canned liquid in chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch flavors, and -two boxes of wafers in spice and chocolate flavors. Dr. J. E. Christian, head of the Purdue department of dionucleon- ics, said the 60 persons hope to lose an estimated 1,000 pounds or more of excess weight. " The 45 dieters in the study group will not be under constant surveillance to see they don't fudge. But each will be on his honor. The control group of students will be under supervision at all times,''living and'eating all meals —if you can call them meals—in the 90 J bed student hospital. What Dr. Christian and Dr. L. W. Combs, head of the student health center, hope to learn from the research is. whether the food substitutes in weight ' reduction programs cause weight to come •OK the lean meat or the fat in the human body, V > This 's determined by subjecting the human guinea pigs to gamma rays from Purdue's giant scintil- lation counter which measures natural potassium found only in lean muscle tissue. By determing the potassium content of the subjects at various stages during the eight-.wcek period, the experts can determine through complex formulas, the body's, mass fat-lean ratios. Although it may turn into an ordeal for food-loving members of the group, Christian and Combs encountered no trouble finding the subjects., They said more than 200 volunteered for the weight • shedding program. Rusk Visits Berlin SERUM (UPD-U.S. Secretary of State Itean Rusk paid a lightning visit to Berlin today and in- pected thi Communist anti- refugee border wall in a dramatic demonstration of American sup- tort for tin's isolated city. After lociking at the Communist x>rder barrier, Rusk said: "The wall will be broken eventually. That is Ihe story of freedom." fe added, "it must be set aright." Rusk, flying in from Paris, gave Vest Bcfriiners, a new American >ledge to defend their Communist encircled city. He then toured key spots along ,he East-West city border, includ- ng Potsdamer Platz and Gran- denburg ijate area, where only lours belorc Communist police !iad fired about 40 shots—apparently at refugees fleeing to West Berlin. At Potedamer PJatz, Rusk, making his first visit to Berlin as secretary of slate, stood on a ramp an<i looked over the wall into East Berlin for five minutes. With him were Mrs. Rusk, Mayor Willy Brandt, U.S. Ambassador to Bonn Walter C. Dowlirig and the British provost marshal. Across the wall he could see three Communist border guards. About ii.OOO West Bcrliners gathered at the Potsdamer Platz to greet Riisk. West Berlin police had 100 men at the square. The British r;ad four military police and an armored scout ear. JJut.thwe were no incidents as Rusk inspected the scene. Thousands of other Berliners lined the route from the airport to cheer Rusk and express their thanks "for American support. Brandt, in an airport- speech welcoming Rusk, said Berliners never doubted Americans would stand by their city and said they faced lh<! future with confidence. In a sliort speech at Tempelhof Airport, Rusk told Brandt the United Stales is "determined to fulfill ilii responsibilities to Ihis city." Rusk arrived from Paris, where he voiced conviction after talks with French leader; that the ; United iitates and i-ance wil'. work together in the West-vn alliance despite nuclear policy differenc ES. Before leaving Paris, Rusk conferred briefly with French Foreign Mirislcr Maurice Couve de Murvllle. Rusk vill fly to Bonn this evening for meetings with West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Foreign Minister Gerhard Scijroeder. Rusk (round up his Paris talks without making a dent in President Charles de Gaulle's determination to build up an independent French ruclear striking force. Rusk made it clear that although the Uniled States must recognize 1 French nuclear armament as a fact, it still objects to the "proliferation" of nuclear striking ::orces in the world. Sources on both sides said Rusk and French officials cleared up some misunderstandings about eai.'h other's intentions but (here was not even a hint that either side sympathized with the other's point of view. At one point Rusk asked whether France would cooperate with llie United States in nuclear strategic planning once the French nuclear force had been established. Couve 'fe Murvillc, according to French" sources, replied that tk« question .deserved "serloui «M*. sideratiou" but that the TfnffH nuclear Ibrce had not grown *JS ficiently to make such talks tttP*- ly yet. • ' Nevertheless, Rusk was talcing with him; assurances that France would. fij[ht alongside the United States in case of «ttack against NATO. *,
