JUNIOR FOOD WINNERS-Among ribbon winners in the junior division of the Brown County Favorite Food Show Saturday were left to right Diane Moreloek, Gall Llndsey, Beck) McCullough, Cindy Storey and Faith Foster. (Bulletin Staff Photo) Labor Behind Johnson WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson has won promises of solid Inbor support for his reelection and left little doubt he intends to seek another term. ."We do intend to stand here as long as we can stand here," he said Monday night, "and fight for what is right." Johnson dropped the hint on his political plans during an unannounced visit to the second annual Farm Policy and Rural Life conference in a speech filled with homespun humor. He told the farmers they had mastered the hardest skill of all: "You know how to make hay in Washington." The promises of labor support came earlier at a legislative conference of several thousand AFL-C10 Building and Con struction Trades delegates. AFL-CIO President George, Accent on Liquor In State Campaign By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sale of liquor by the drink drew fresh attention from Texas' candidates for the Democratic nomination for governor Monday. As the campaign leading up to the May 4 party primary headed into the final six weeks, they also talked about job training, regulation of sales finance firms, pollution of air and water, and women's rights. Dolph Briscoe, in San Antonio, said as governor he would not veto measures to legalize sales of mixed drinks or parimutuel betting on horse races if a majority of the voters approved such steps. Turning to another subject, Briscoe declared an equitable formula should, be devised so that local taxpayers are not forced to pay all the operating costs of teaching hospitals operated In conjunction with state medical schools. Waggoner Carr, Jn Austin, asserted special interest groups want the Legislature to sanction liquor by the drink, an approach he described as "both evil and illegal." He said the Issue should be submitted as a constitutional amendment "to the people for a vote, and, I will abide by their decision." In Dallas later, Carr proposed to reduce the nearly 200 agencies in state government which he said overlap "so badly you need a traffic cop just to keep the agencies on the right track." Lt, Gov, Preston Smith, another campaigner in Dallas, appealed for "a state-business partnership to operate a job training program" which he said is vital "if Texas is to compete effectively for its share of new industry." Smith said this project should be coupled with a big increase in "our state vocational and technical schools as an excellent and constant source of training for our young people wanting careers in business and industry," Edward L. Whittenburg called for steps to license and regulate sales finance companies, suggesting this would be a weapon against racketeers lie accused of operating in the Texas home improvement industry. Observing that sales finance firms are the only financial institutions not subject to state regulation, Whittenburg further proposed a five-day "cooling off period" before home improvement contracts sold from door to door go into effect, Sell Those Unwanted Items In The Bulletin Classifieds FMTURES —1:10-3:15* 5:20* 7;2Q, 9:35 •RECOMMENDED AS MATURE "ENTERTAINMENT NO CHILDREN TICKETS SOLD US w Aft m IN!

"I don't think we're going to turn our back on a friend," Meany said. "Labor will discharge its obligations." In other political developments. —The GOP moderates' National Coalition for a Republican Alternative said it has four potential presidential candidates: New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, New York City Mayor John V. Lindsay, Sen. Charles H. Percy of Illinois and Sen. Mark 0. Hatfield of Oregon. All four are noncandidates at (his point but coalition organizer Duff Reed, an aide to Sen. Thruston B, Morton of Kentucky, called them the "invisible quartet." —Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy told a crowd of more than 15,000 at Madison, Wis., his Democratic presidential candidacy is no longer simply a protest against President Johnson's policies. "We are seeking the presidency of the United States," McCarthy said and hundreds stood and cheered. —Republican candidate Richard M. Nixon mapped strategy with staff members and friends in New York and plans to continue his Wisconsin primary campaign Wednesday. The primary vote comes a week from today. —Sen. Robert F. Kennedy carried his Democratic presidential campaign into the Pacific Northwest after a stop in Los Angeles' Watts area where he vvas cheered by thousands of Negroes. Meany sharply criticized presidential candidates campaigning against Johnson's Vietnam policies. "Of course they are going to focus on the war that nobody wants," Meany said. He urged Americans "to Jet Hanoi know they can't win at the ballot box in this country what they can't Roc/cyDen/'es Foundation Tax WASHINGTON (AP> - GOV. Winthrop Rockefeller of Arkansas has denied that the Rockwin Fund, a foundation he set up 12 years ago, has engaged in any "tax abuse." Rockefeller termed a "poljtj* cal maneuver" a report released Monday by Rep. Wright Patman, D-Texas, head of a House Small Business subcommittee which investigated tax- exempt foundations. Patman's report said Rocke, feller acquired several antique automobiles at a bargain through transactions involving the Rockwin Fund, The report said the RocKwin Fund bought in antique suto collection, from singer James Melton in im for $200,000 and later turned the pars over to Rockefeller at § loss of $24,?iQ, Or Pepper win In Asia." Johnson defended his "Great Society" programs at the labor convention and the farm program he sent to Congress last month at the farm conference. "We did make progress," Johnson told the labor group, In helping millions of Americans rise from poverty, providing medical care for the elderly and bringing better jobs at higher pay for workers. "These are the mighty foundations that we have put into place," he said, "and we are not going to sit by and let them be torn down in a partisan, political election year. "I'm not saying you never had it so good," the President said, "but that is a fact, isn't it?" Elsewhere on the political scene: —California Gov. Ronald Reagan said he doubts Nixon can lock up the GOP presidential nomination before the national convention because many Republicans still are concerned about Nixon's electability. —An effort In Washington, D.C., to pool Kennedy and McCarthy forces into a common anti-Johnson front has been di- savowed by McCarthy. He said the coalition could be misconstrued as an "arrangement" for Kennedy's campaign. —McCarthy's new California campaign manager, Sanford A. (Sandy) Weiner, said the Minnesotan's campaign in the state will be geared to charges of "bully and strongarm" tactics by Kennedy forces. —Florida State GOP Chairman William Murfin pulled out of the state's convention delegation, charging it is pledged to Gov. Claude Kirk as a presidential candidate, not just a favorite son. —New York City Mayor Lindsay predicted Rockefeller will be the GOP presidential nominee despite his refusal to campaign. Said Lindsay: "I think there's an answer to the Republican dilemma, and I'm not going to give up on it, and that's Nelson Rockefeller." —But Sen. George Murphy, R-Calif., said Rockefeller is unlikely to be drafted and predicted the nomination will go to Nixon. "I don't see anybody who can beat him unless Gov. Reagan becomes an active candidate," Murphy said, "and I don't think he will." Six Women Take Part in VC Attack By AL CHANG Associated Press Photographer TRANG BANG, Vietnam (AP) — At least six women took part in an assault by Viet Cong troops on an American armored column rushing to reinforce this ke, district town 28 miles northwest of Saigon, military officers said today. Capt. Gordon Lam, 25, of Honolulu, said he saw six women, including three armed with Chinese Communist AK50 assault rifles charging straight toward his platoon of armored personnel carriers, Three of the women were cut down by ,50- caliber machine guns mounted on the armored carriers, Lam said. Lam said the women were in the first wave of about 20 to 30 Viet Cong troops who charged the armored personnel carriers in broad daylight Monday. "We kept shooting them from the tracks (the armored personnel carriers) witi. our 50s" Lam said. "They just stopped coming after we had cut down the first assault wave. "The rest pulleO back and I started to throw mortar fire into their positions. Then I pulled back toward a bridge and made my final assault from the west to the east, When it was over, I counted. 46 enemy bo4ies, all killed in our area alone." 1st Lt. Daniel A- Bartolomei, 24, of Puerto Rico, a platoon leader, said, "I saw the group that was charging the armored personnel carriers. When I saw them I thought they were ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) troops. They opened up on us and then they charged us. "In the first group were five to six women," said Bartolomei. "I could see their long hair. They were dressed in black pajamas." Bartolomei said he saw the charging enemy troops fall "as we kept shooting." "I counted 14 of them, mixed with the women, killed after the assault," he said. U.S. officers said the attack on Trang Bang failed because a battalion of the 23rd. Infantry (mechanized), U.S. 25th Infantry Division had been deployed near the town before the Viet Cong started their assault.

Robles Foes Urge Guard To Withdraw PANAMA (AP) - The National Assembly asked the National Guard, backing deposed President Marco A. Robles, to withdraw from around the legislative palace today so it can get to work with the new president it installed. A spokesman for the 4,000- man guard, the country's only military force, said the request from Assembly President Carlos Agustin Arias was under study. But it was learned that the guard has notified Max Delvalle, sworn in as president Sunday, that he is not authorized to enter the assembly hi.ll. U.S. Ambassador Charles W. Adair Jr., meanwhile, was informally in touch with Ricardo Arias, named foreign minister in the eight-man Delvalle Cabinet. The United States was caught up in the thorny problem of whether to :ecognize Delvalle. In impeachment proceedings Sunday, Robles was convicted by a 30-0 vote, with 12 minority assemblymen abstaining, on charges that he was promoting his finance minister, David Samudio, to succeed him in the May presidential elections. The opposition claimed such support violates constitutional law but Robles countered that the law does not prohibit him from merely expressing a preference. Behind this was the opposition's low regard for Samudio, whose tax reforms have offended Panama's wealthy elite. The opposition National Union, a five-party coalition, is backing former President Arnulfo Arias in the elections. 2 Auto Crashes Reported Here There were no injuries from two traffic accidents' reported to Brownwood police Monday.
