By WALf Eft ft. MfcARS Associated Pf«s WHtct MILWAUKEE. Wis. (AP) Richard M. Nixon has accused! Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and j President Johnson of raucous. 1 irresponsible campaigning. But he had a kind word for Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, the on-the- scene Democrat who could knife into his Republican vote in Wisconsin's wide-open presidential primary. And the proxy campaign for Johnson rolled on in the nation's second presidential primary. That was the scene in a Wisconsin puzzle compounded by the fact that when the polls open next Tuesday, a voter can choose the ballot of either party. Nixon men are concerned lest the lack of a real contest in the Republican primary lead vast Crash Kills BUT NOT FOR LONG Texas Pilot I WACO (API - A Waco pilot! who survived 60 millions in Vietnam was killed Tuesday night i in a helicopter crash off Long Beach, Calif.

Robert F. Kennedy's headquarters from Wisconsin predict Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy will score a smashing victory over President Johnson in Tuesday's presidential primary. At least that's the way workers in Kennedy's Washington headquarters are interpreting the reports. Precisely what would constitute a smashing victory is a question that goes unanswered. There's a chance that the Kennedy people are reading into the reports what they want to see. With Kennedy's name absent from the Wisconsin ballot, the word at Kennedy headquarters is "root for Gene." But not for long. Starting with the Indiana primary May 7, the word at Kennedy headquarters will change to "beat Gene"-and beat him badly. Kennedy's name will be on a presidential primary ballot for the first time in Indiana. His opponents will be Gov. Roger Branisin, running as a stand-in for President Johnson, and McCarthy. If Branigan wins, the Kennedy forces can write it off as a victory by a popular governor in his own slate. But Kennedy can't afford to finish behind McCarthy in a head-to-head meeting, in Indiana or anywhere else. While the Kennedy strategists speak no evil of the Minnesota senator, whose New Hampshire victory demonstrated President Johnson's political vulnerability, they don't expect McCarthy to be in the race when the Democratic convention opens in Chicago Aug. 26. And they would like to see him out of the race before the , May 28 Oregon primary. The Oregbn primary and the California primary a week later I are the keystones of the strate- | py evolved by the former Nnw Frontiersmen running the Kennedy drive. If Kennedy is to sway delegates away from the incumbent president, he must win in both Oregon and California. This task will become immeasurably easier if McCarthy is out of the race. As the Kennedy men seek out delegates across the nation, they are running into two obstacles: Timing and the presidency. _ _ MONTGOMERY WARD 301 MAIN STREET Kennedy's lateentry into the race caught a portion of his poi tcntial support already commit| led to delegate stales pledged to | President Johnson, either directly or through a stand-in. This'situation is graphically illustrated in California where the Johnson slate pledged to Alty. Gen. Thomas C. Lynch was made up before Kennedy announced—indeed it was made up when Kennedy was still in- j sisting he wouldn't run. May o£ the delegation members who signed pledges to support Lynch and through him the President, would have supported Kennedy had they known he planned to enter the race. numbers of normally GOP vol- efs to switch and cast Democratic ballots. While he campaigned in Wisconsin. Nixon talked nationally, in a recorded radio address which criticized the campaign style of both Kennedy and Johnson. "Never have we more needed an intelligent, rational and dispassionate discussion of the great issues," he said. "And yet seldom has debate been more raucous or more irresponsible. "Sen. Kennedy accused his fellow Democrat, President Johnson, of calling upon the darker impulses of the American spirit," the former vice president said. "The President and his supporters too often re- • spond in kind by savage attacks on the motives of his critics." It was in this context that Nix-' on mentioned McCarthy. "We need to restore to our political, dialogue the sense ... that the: processes of democracy still arc effective, even for dealing with the complexities of the modern day. he said. "I share the view of those who say that Sen. McCarthy's campaign has contributed significantly to this goal, that his enlistment of the enthusiasm, the energy and the faith of many who had given up on the political process Is a step toward the restoration of thai process itself to the place It deserves. .." But he quickly added that it is not enough to focus dissent. Nixon is in a shadow campaign of sorts, for the name of (California Gov. Ronald Reagan is on the GOP ballot. His supporters are planning a last-minute series of television advertisements. Also on the GOP ballot is former Minnesota Gov. Harold Stasscn. The real contest is among Democrats. McCarthy, stressing the issue that got him into the race in the , first place, said Thursday the ("government of South Vienam has in fact collapsed.

The two cosmonauts were killed in the crash of a MIG trainer Thursday. Communist party General Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev, Premier Alexei N.

Gagarin's daugh- Iters, Lena, 9, and Galya, 7, were also crying. After a funeral Saturday Gagarin's and Seryogin's ashes will be placed in the most honorable spot in the Soviet Union, the Kremlin Wall facing Red Square. From an obscure childhood on a collective farm, Gagarin rose to top graduate of an aviation cadet school and became the first man to orbit the earth in his historic Vostok flight April 12, 1961. Moscow newspapers published large portraits of the 34-year-old Gagarin on their front pages, and other portraits of him and Seryogin, who was 4G, with obituaries on inside pages.
