Btyffievffle TArttJ Courier New* - Saturday, April 1, 1MT - P«n rtv» Humphrey, Pope Talk on Peace WJ<W By HARRY KELLY I VATICAN CITY (AP) - Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey came to the Vatican today to discuss hopes for peace in Vietnam with Pope Paul VI. Humphrey arrived a half-hour before the scheduled audience but he was immediately escorted to the papal study, where the pontiff receives visitors in private audience. Several hundred persons, mostly tourists, milled around St. Peter's Square, but there were no demonstrations as Humphrey's police-guarded motorcade passed through the entrance way next to St. Peter's Basilica. The vice president left the papal wing of tia Vatican Palace an hour later and went on a tour of the Sistine Chapel and other sites before his planned departure by train for Florence. Friday night Humphrey's visit touched off one of the biggest anti-Vietnam war protests in Rome in years. Humphrey went to the Vatican after a brief wreath-laying ceremony at a monument to Italy's Unknown Soldier in spacious Piazza Veezia. Between 200 and 300 persons, many of them plainclothesmen, watched the ceremony in bright sunshine. It lasted only five minutes and there were no demonstrations. The Pope's meeting with Humphrey was the pontiff's fourth this year with various leaders to discuss Vietnam. He received Soviet President Nikolai Podgorny Jan. 3, former U.S. Ambassador to Saigon Henry Cabot I/xlge Jan. 1« and U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy Feb. 4. A noisy mob of almost 1,000 Communist and Socialist youths tangled traffic Friday. They scattered leaflets and shouted "Humphrey go home! Johnson, hands off Vietnam!" just outside the Prime Ministry where the vice president was conferring with Italian leaders. Hundreds of Italian police wrestled demonstrators by the scores into jail bound buses and trucks. Police said 300 were seized. All but a handful were released. After his talks with Deputy Premier Pietro Nenni, Humphrey and his parly left by a back exit with police escort. The Italian Communist party organ L'Unita said in a front- page editorial today that President Johnson's recent statements on Vietnam amounted to a return to the so-called "brinkmanship" foreign policy of the late John Foster Dulles. After his audience with the pontiff, Humphrey was to leave by train for flood-damged Florence, Communists in the city government have announced they will boycott a civ ic reception for him. Humphrey, who was sprinkled by yellow paint thrown by an antiwar demonstrator Thursday night, is nearing the .midway point of his two-week fence- mending tour of six European nations. In Italy, as on previous stops in the Netherlands and Germany, Humphrey argued the neec for a nuclear nonproliferation treaty and the treaty to reduce trade barriers. Italy, Germany and some other nonnuclear nations have expressed concern that some pro- visitors of the nuclear treaty might weaken their future security and Inhibit dvelopment of industrial nuclear uses. An Italian spokesman said Humphrey and Italian leaders agreed on the need for a non proliferation treaty that woult meet as large a consensus as possible among the nations. ROCKEFELLER (Continued from "age One) that would supersede » measure he already had signed into law that gives teachers a flat $500 raise in each year o£ the next biennium. The Senate also failed to consider the $1 an hour minimum wage bill passed Thursday by the House. The House refused to consider a bill reducing the work week of firemen in cities of more than 15,000 persons from 72 to 64 hours. Jones, Rockefeller's most vocal Senate critic, told the senators, before Rockefeller, that adjournment was timed to forget differences and heal animosities. Sterling R. Cbckrill Jr. of Little Rock, speaker of the House, said, "I can honestly say that, contrary to much of our public image, this is not the worst legislature in recent times," Rep. Marion Crank of Foreman said he has been in "much rougher | sessions that this one." Both Crank and Cockrill have been mentioned as possible Democratic gubernatorial candidates In 1968. Rockefeller, completing his first legislative session as governor, announced that he intends to take a week's vacation at Palm Springs, Calif., during the third week of this month. Shortly after the session ended Friday, Rockefeller left for Chicago to attend the wedding of his 'nephew, John D. Rockefeller IV, and Miss Sharon Percy, daughter of Sen. Charles Percy, R-I11. Before he left, however, Rockefeller said ha generally was pleased with the results of the legislative session, but he still held his regrets. "I regretted that the bond bill and the minimum wage bill failed to pass, but I was generally pleased with the constructive legislation passed by this legislature," he said. He said there probably would be a move to get the bond bill •n the 1968 general election ballot through an initiated act. The bill would have required bids on all bond issues let in the state. The minimum wage bill would have set hourly wages at $1 on Jan. 1, 1968 and increase them to $1.20 by Jan. 1, 1970. The governor also aaid he regretted that the legislature had not paised bill! requesting audits of the state Highway Commission and the state Game and Fish Commission. He said that without an audit commission, the possibility of a Hw» te He said he would explore possibilities of obtaining the audits through some means other than legislation.
