i O'Brien Calls Ted Ideal Stand-i Meat Bill Due Smooih Sail!n 8y MLffclt ft. MfcAKS JACK fifcLL Assdcfated Pres ttritefS WASHINGTON (AP) - Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien is boosting Sen. Edward M. Kennedy as a Massachusetts primary stand-in for President Johnson—a task Kennedy says he won't perform, O'Brien, denying reports he might make the April 30 race in Johnson's behalf, called Kennedy the "ideal candidate" to stand in for the President against Minnesota Sen. Eugene .3. McCarthy, who intends to enter the Democratic primary- on a platform of opposition to administration Vietnam policy. "I have absolutely no intention of running in the primary," Kennedy said Tuesday, "It's as sure as anything can be in political life." On the other side of the politi- cal fence, the Ripon Society- describing itself as "the only noncandidate group on the Republican left which is national in scope"~said it the GOP national convention were held today Richard M. Nixon and Ronald Reagan would probably command the support of three- fifths of the delegates. President Lee W. Huebner wrote in the society's "forum" that if Nixon, Die I960 nominee, is generally successful in presidential primaries, he "could sweep the convention next summer without too much trouble." "If he fails," Huebner said, "the most likely beneficiary would appear to be Ronald Reagan," California governor. Huebner said Nixon's organization is growing in strength and Reagan conservatives are active in the grass roots where delegates are chosen in nonpri- mary slates. "While primary elections could launch some candidates and finish others." he said, "the Republican nominee will finally be chosen (in precinct meetings) in the living rooms and the school houses of nonpri- fnary stales. At present this process heavily favors Republican conservatives." Huebner said the party's moderates now are unsatisfied that Gov. George Romney of Michigan can make the grade for the nomination and yet are doing nothing effective toward bringing forth any fresh contender. The forum article named Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller as a proven candidate but said the New Yorker could not emerge as a contender until convention time unless he made an about- face in his stand against homing a candidate. Meanwhile in Troy, N. Y., House GOP Leader Gerald R. ford said Rockefeller could win fhe nomination "if the convention gets deadlocked." Ford is a nominal Romney supporter. "Everything indicates that Gov. Rockefeller wants to help Gov. George Romney." Ford said at a news conference. "But on the other hand if the convention gets deadlocked in 1968, it's always possible Rockefeller would become the GOP's choice." Diseasing the Massachusetts primary, O'Brien said if Kennedy isn't going lo run he should get together with stale Democratic leaders lo decide what should be done. Kennedy men argue it's up to the White House to decide how to handle McCarthy's challenge. i8'rtRW^ Wife Says John Smith 'Psychotic' WASHINGTON (AP) - John; Smith, the American defector whose claims to have been a Central Intelligence Agency operative are being heralded in the Soviet press, was described by his '/rife in a 1961 divorce action as psychotic. The Soviets announced two months ago that Smith was in the Soviet Union, Since then he has written or been the subject of press articles purporting to relate inside information on CIA activities. His serialized memoirs ran in a Soviet magazine. Smith claimed he had a hand in placing a bomb-laden suitcase on an airliner carrying delegates from Peking to Ban dung. Indonesia, for an African-Asian conference in 1955. The plane vanished while over the ocean. He also wrote he was convinced the CIA was involved in a "broad conspiracy" in the assassination of President John F Kennedy, The State Department said Tuesday that Smith worked from 1950 to 1959 as a communications clerk in the New Delhi embassy and was earning under $6,000 when he quit. Spokesmen said he never worked for the CIA. !

House-Senate conferees agreed Tuesday on terms of the compromise measure to revamp ; the 60-year-old federal meal in- jspection law. i It is designed lo extend federal standards within the next • three years to 15,000 plants not ( now covered. ! The measure now goes back ' to the House and Senate for expected final approval before i being sent to President Johnson. ;The House ttiay consider it to- I day. "This is or.e of the most re- imarkable Victories for the American consumers in recent years," said Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D-Minn., a cosponsor of the Senate version. President Johnson said the measure would help guarantee to every American family "that , the meat on their tables" is safe ! and fit to eat. Betty Furfless, special assistant on consumer affairs to President Johnson, credited house- wive and the press with spurring passage of what she termed "this wholesome meat bill." ' She said the conference action "is the direct result of the 'housewives' vocal reaction to i the graphic coverage by the na- Uion's press." ' But Chairman W. n. Poige of the House Agriculture Commit- i tee contended the bill was an al- S tempt by Washington to impose i federal controls in a matler where states should have the final say. j Poage afid Rep. £. C. (3§th- j ings, D-Ark., were the only conf* Jerees who refused to sign the conference report. Poage said he would vote against the measure on the House floor but | conceded he felt it would win fl- nal approval. the measure would give slates Up to two years—three if significant progress has ix^n ! made—to set up inspection pro i grams for meal produced and sold within their borders. The federal government would pay ; half the cost of present and new j state programs, which would | have to be at least equal to fed- ! era! standards. i But if 8 slate didn't act the ifedefat government could impose its own standards.

Myambutol'is designed, though, for use in combination with some of the older drugs, especially isoniazid. The World Health Organization estimates there are between 15 million and 20 million icases of infectious tuberculosis in the world, with two to three million victims dying annually. A public health service study in 1964 said there were 50,800 newly active cases reported that year in the United States along with 8,303 deaths.

HOFFMAN 7 AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Food ships arc getting first priority in unloading at North Vietnam's key port of Haiphong, U.S. sources say, fueling speculation the Communist country is feeling the pinch of food scarcity brought on by war. Intelligence reports say the North Vietnamese rice harvest has been poor for two years and that the food situation may have worsened. Intensified U.S. air attacks on North Vietnam roads apparently disrupted this year's rice harvest. the sources said. '•They are not starving," said one expert. "But normally they are on close to a subsistence level, and if their food stocks are cut from 10 to 20 per cent, they really have to tighten their bells." Reports indicate petroleum products make up the largest volume of nonrnililary goods entering North Vietnam through Haiphong. But the unloading of gasoline and oil has rated second to the discharge of cargo ticularly in the treatment of patients who have not responded to prior treatment and whose TB germs resistant to the major anti-TB drugs," Anderson said the committee on therapy of the American Thoracic Society— medical section of the tuberculosis society —has invited all clinical investigators involved in the drug's trials to meet with the society in January "to delineate the drug's potential." Shirley Ferrebee, a medical statistician and chief of the TB research division of the U.S. Public Health Service, told a reporter: "We believe that the new drug is going ships carrying food, Authorities declined to say how this intelligence was gathered. Since last January, Soviet vessels have been hauling increasing amounis of wheat and flour from Vladivostok in Siberia lo North Vietnam. And Communist Chinese ships have been carrying rice to Haiphong, sources said. Priority cargo is being unloaded within a week, it was indicated. Some food ships have been discharged in as little as five days compared with a many as nine days severa months ago. During September, the mos recent month for which stalis tics are available, 25 ships an chored in Haiphong harbor Eight were Soviet vessels, eigh were Communist. Chinese, tw were from European Commu nist bloc countries and scve were Hong Kong-registered ves sels flying Ihe British flag. The September ship total a Haiphong compared with 22 ves sels in both August and July, 3 in June, 39 in May and 36 in April.
