One of Humphrey's major o jectives is to have a long talk with ov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown of California. Brown has indicated ie wants to be a favorite son. 'his would hove the effect of ruing the California primary out of munds for both Humphrey and Kennedy. Humphrey realizes that, to get anywhere in the nomination con- est, he must have some strong Western support. He probably will have to battle Kennedy in the Wisconsin primary as a prelude for what looks like a free-for-all in end to offset Kennedy's acknowledged hold on New England.

His wife Wilma found him bleeding on his bod and summoned police. He was reported in serious condition at hospital. RYE, N. Y. (AP) -Ten days ago a staccato knocking and bang- ng awakened the Richard Spath lousehold at 5 a.m. "Good heavens," said Mrs. Spath, "whatever can that be?" "Must be the plumbing," said her husband. No, it wasn't the plumbing, said the plumber. Second day: same time, same noise. Spath called in a heating engineer. Not the heating, said the engineer. Third day: ditto time ant 1 racket. Gas man called in. No i defect, the man said. Fourth day: same old tim Vlaim tribulation. Spath donned a robe and hurried outside. There, fi h the dawning, he saw the culpn It: downy woodpecker hammt tring like mad on the television aer Sal. "Go home," "shoo!" and rock, and hand-clapping failed to sc er away the bird. Wednesday, Spath consulted th National Audubon Society, i Vc fsed the society: Turn the gaHen ose on him; or get a toy pop gun and frighten it; or get a fireworks permit and shoot some roman candles at it. Spath hag decided to use the hose treatment first. He'll probably get help from his wife and heir two youngsters, Greg, 6, and John, 3. That downy woodpecker isn't iust a mean old cuss, said the Audubon Society. He's merely using the TV antenna as a sort of sounding board to issue a spring love call.

And what's more important to the Spaths, it will go away.
