YOUR CAR...WHERE YOU SEE THE STAR "HOME OF CUSTOMER SERVICE" Raglund Chrysler-Plymouth Vietnam: Hubert wants olive branches; Nixon needs none Vietnam Is escalating as an Issue In the race for the White House. Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey drew a standing ovation from a crowd of 5.000 Friday night as he pledged to do everything possible "to find an honorable peace, to end this war." His Republican rival, Richard M. Nixon, cautioned against a settlement that would bring home today's 19 and 20- year-old soldiers but would mean ''their 14 and 10-year- old brothers will be fighting someplace else again." Nixon said If acoalltlon government were imposed on South Vietnam, the Communists would only be encouraged to try aggression elsewhere. He said Vietnam's future should be determined by free elections. Humphrey, speaking in Louisville, Ky., made what may have been an allusion to his role as vice president in the Johnson administration when he rioted the eagle on his seal of office holds only a single olive branch, compared to the cluster on the presidential seal. The Democratic candidate said, "How can you expect me to be the No! 1 peace man with one little olive branch. You let me have a handful, believe me. you'll have peace." He told his cheering supporters, ''I will doeverything, God willing, to find an honorable way, to find an honorable peace, to end this war and get on with the unfinished business of America." Nixon voiced his opposition to a coalition government for South Vietnam in a television broadcast to Pennsylvania, Delaware and parts of New Jersey Friday night. "We do not want to lose at the conference table what 200,000 American casualties have already paid for in Vietnam," he said. Nixon continued campaigning in Philadelphia today while Humphrey and his running mate, Sen. Edmund S. Mus- kie of Maine, planned a pilgrimage to Independence, Mo., to meet with former President Harry S. Truman. Third-party candidate George C. Wallace stumped through Florida Friday, criticizing the federal government and the Supreme Court. Wallace told a cheering crowd of 9,000 at Orlando, "The federal government Is Increasing control over every phase and aspect of your llVPS." He said if elected he will seek a constitutional change to require Senate reconflrma-. tlon of Supreme Court justices every six of eight years.
