Group Works to Embarrass Johnson By HARRY KELLY AssoalatedPf ess Writer MINNEAPOLIS, Minn, (AP) «* Rebellious Democrats back* ing sen, Eutfene J, McCarthy for president are working to deal President Johnson an em* barrasslng political defeat on Viee President Hubert H, Hurm phrey's home ground two weeks from today, Administration loy« ailsts frankly admit they're worriedi "The doves can conceivably take Minneapolis, 1 ' said Richard Moe, state finance director of the Democratic Farmer Labor party, "It will be fairly close either way," The vice president, said a pro'Humphrey leader, Is ''defi- nltely concerned, for he considers Minneapolis to be home base," Humphrey began hlspo* lltlcal career as mayor of this city. McCarthy calls neighbor- Ing St. Paul home, The confrontation will come March 5 at party precinct caucuses—one week before McCarthy and the Johnson-Humphrey forces clash In the Now Hampshire preferential primary, In Minnesota, the precinct caucuses are the grass-roots starting point for selection of national convention delegates. From the precincts, delegates are sent to ward conventions, which choose delegates to the district and state conventions, which in turn name the national delegates. Because precinct caucuses are open to anyone who voted Democratic In the last election, or promises to do so In the next, party officials fear the meetings will be packed with voters attracted by McCarthy's opposition to the Vietnam war. Many of these are likely to be college-age voters and that further complicates the problem. One party official pointed out that Humphrey had been unable to devote much attention to the party since he became vice president. "There are a lot of youngpeo- ple who have come Into the party who don't even know Hubert Humphrey," he said. National Committee woman Gerl Joseph predicted In an Interview that McCarthy will get no more than 5 of the state's 62 delegates. John "We can get 32 votes for Gene McCarthy for president" — in other words, a majority of the delegation. Other observers think McCarthy couia wind up with as many as 8 to 10. Despite the stakes, both sides appear to be trying to campaign on what was described as a "gentlemanly level." They want to avoid a rending clash like the battle two years ago over pick- Ing the party's gubernatorial nominee. That intraparty feud is blamed for the Republicans capturing the state house in I960. But Mrs. Joseph said the McCarthy-Hum phrey contest can't help but get rougher.

Anderson says the reason for the soft campaign is this: "When Sen. McCarthy runs for re-election in 1970 we will support him. We feel ia November he will support the Johnson-Humphrey ticket. We want to conduct ourselves so this will happen." . As evidence of some of the tension, however, Rep. Donald Fraser, Democratic congressman from Minneapolis, said he had turned down an invitation from Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D-Minn., to serve on the state Johnson-Humphrey committee. Fraser said he wasn't endors- ,ssj]nf^Mc ! §ar.ttty, and he still sup^ portedrthe administration because of its domestic policies, but added: "I felt as long as I've been such an outspoken critic of the administration's position on Vietnam war policies, it wouldn't appear proper to serve in a leadership role in Minnesota." Head Matron Will Care for Prison Baby LITTLE ROCK (AP>-Prison Supt. Thomas 0. Murton said Monday that the head matron of the Women's Reformatory at Cummins Prison Farm and her husband would be temporary foster parents 'of the infant son of a woman convict. Murton said that the head matron, Mrs. Beatrice Crawford, had agreed to care for the child until the state Welfare Department approves a foster home or similar arrangements are made. The child was born about two months ago and allowed to stay with its mother temporarily, Murton said it had never been planned for the infant to remain at the prison.

(AP) _ Ralph Dial, 40, of Oklahoma City, who has been charged with obtaining $30,000 by false pretense, filed a civil rights suit in federal District Court Monday after being bound over to Circuit Court. Dial said in his suit that his civil rights had been violated during his arrest and detention Dec. 6. '; Municipal Judge Lawson ,Clqn- inger ruled earlier in the day that the .Municipal Court did have jurisdiction in Dialte case. Dial says he was kidnaped in Oklahoma Dec. 6 and forced to come to Arkansas 'to face the false pretense charge. Dial asked in his suit filed Monday that a writ of habeas corpus be issued and that the false pretense charges against him be quashed. He named Cloninger, Prosecutor Wayland Parker and Sebastian County Sheriff Fred B. Hayes as re- spondants in the suit. Hayes has been ordered to appear before the federal court March 6 to answer Dial's allegations. Parker had charged Dial with unlawfully obtaining $30,000 from Sam Sexton Jr., and J. A. Hannah,Doth of Fort Smith, and Dr. Roy Mason of Oklahoma City. Cloninger conducted a hearing Jan. 23 on Dial's motion concerning Municipal Court jurisdiction and a preliminary hearing on the evidence relating to the false pretense charge.
