Moth/ n0i in Iff Sf of es B* CARL IP, LEUBSbORt Associated Press Writer WASHtHGfON (AP) - the lsft evldetit these days rouftd Democratic party head* iuarters fails to obscure onees- lefitlal !act! The disrepair of party tnachlhefy in the big tales necessary for Resident Johnson to be re-elected. the party coffers are unusually full, the staff has been rebuilt ud everyone concerned seems Lppier now that election year |s finally here and the National :otnml(tee knows what its job 'this is to provide a support Structure for registration, worn- activities and other organizational work necessary for a successful national campaign, In addition, party leaders re- art enthusiasm at regional [planning conferences, and the organization of Citizens for [lohnson-Humphrey groups is ahead of schedule under the dt- Section of Washington lawyer [fames H.

But the state of the party in Ithe big states, where Republicans scored smashing victories n 1966 and 1967, remains questionable, with serious new splits •threatening : in a number of Iplaces. I Of the 10 largest states, whose |255 electoral votes are only 14 Ishort of the majority needed for {election, Democrats have gover- Inors in only 3— New Jersey, I Texas and Illinois. But in New Jersey, Republicans scored smashing statewide •victories last fall; in Texas, the [retirement of Gov. John B. Con- [nally has created a void at the Ihead of Democratic ranks; and I In Illinois, Republicans scored {significant victories in 1966. Illinois presents the Demo- Jcrats— and Johnson in particu- |lar— with a unique problem. Senate Republican Leader Ev- I erett M. Dirksen of Illinois, who I has strongly supported the President on Vietnam, is seeking a fourth term. Unless Democrats run a strong race against him, the President could lose the [state and its 26 electoral votes. However, the retirement of {Democratic 'Gov. Otto Kerner gives '-the-party-a chance to come up with its most star-studded state ticket in a generation 1 — antipoverty director Sargent IShriver and State Treasurer Adlai E. Stevenson III, son of the [former governor and two-time Democratic presidential nominee. • The other seven big states j present even greater problems i for the Democrats, who carried all of them in their landslide 1964 victory.

Long-haired teen«agers, Who fight parental attempts to get them to shear their locks, might be comforted by this facts George Washington was something of a long-hair, too. He saved his country while wearing a powdered wig. Shelters for Aircraft Possibility By BOB HORTON AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon, citing huge Egyptian plane losses in last June's Arab-Israeli war, is pressing Congress for permission tobulM new battle-reststent shelters for U.S. aircraft in Europe. Congress has balked at the idea the last few years, partly on grounds construction of new fixed installations might keep the U.S. entrenched abroad or might be wasteful in event of pull-outs. Harold Brown, secretary of the Air Force, made the latest bid for the specially developed shelters Wednesday, pointing out the Middle East war "dramatically demonstrated the vulnerability of exposed aircraft on the ground." "Hundreds of aircraft, representing about halt of the United Arab Republic's jet air force, were destroyed on the ground In the first three hours of attack- almost wholly by 20 and 30mm cannon fire," Brown said. Brown told the Senate Armed Services Committee that East European countries already have started building protective installations for their planes. "Our studies and war games show that, in a great many foreseeable situations, aircraft shelters would probably result ,to —the.. saving, -oLaLJeasL one air" craft for every four shelters," he stated. ' '?• "In some circumstances, they could save us as many as one aircraft for every shelter." American fighter-bombers cost about $2 million each. The new Air Force Fill As are priced at several million apiece. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara asked Congress In late January for $17.4 million to buy 60 shelters at European bases in the fiscal year beginning next July. Over the next few years, he proposed erecting others to provide wartime protection for 515 aircraft in England, Germany and Spain. The program also would provide additional taxiways which would allow planes to be quickly dispersed in case of attack, plus specially protected fuel and communications facilities and alarm systems. What the Pentagon has In mind are prefabricated metal and earth-mound shelters costing $130,000 to $160, 000 each, depending on whether they are equipped with blast resistant steel doors.
