ftttftf, VM» 5,1968 NK(W$?«fcft^*0ff»i< — rms* Is Down town Value Day In Hope roup to Reject Southern Strategy Civil Rights Plank By JACK SELL At Political Writer WASHtNGf ON (Ap) - Twen- tyfouf R^iplibllcan senators from states With 638 delegate votes have charted a course toward rejection of any "Southern strategy" civil rights plank by the GOP National Convention. Led by GOP Leader Everett M. Dlrksen; the 24 supplied the margin Monday by which the .Senate clamped debate<limiting cloture on a pending civil rights bill by a 65-32 count—the bare majority needed. This vote appeared to guarantee eventual passage of a bill carrying an open-housing provision giving Negroes more encouragement to move into the vote-packed white suburbs. Republican candidates count heavily on suburban support to offset the Democratic blg-clty strongholds. If the 24 senators from as many states are reading the sentiment at home correctly— and there were divisions of opinion In three of the states—delegations representing nearly half of the 1,333 Miami Beach, Fla., convention votes are in no mood for a civil rights compromise with the deep South. This does not take into account delegations from states which have no GOP senators but which are likely to support a strong civil rights declaration. These include Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Washington and Wisconsin, which will have a total of 204 convention votes. It takes 667 votes to win the GOP nomination. Such a bloc could mean the Republicans will make a 180-degree turn from 1964. Then Barry Goldwater voted as a senator against passage of a civil rights bill and engineered the futile strategy of trying to combine Southern strength with white which will have a total of 204 convention votes. It takes 667 votes to win the GOP nomination. Such a bloc could mean the Republicans will make a ISO^degree turn 0 from 1964. then Barry Goldwater voted as a senator against passage of a civil rights bill and engineered the futile strategy of trying to combine Southern strength with white backlash support In the North. The third-party threat of former Gov, George C. Wallace of Alabama already has all but wiped out any hopes for major Republican Inroads In the South this year. By (heir actions, the Republican senators are cautioning their party colleagues—and the OOP's eventual presidential candidate—against contesting with Wallace for suburban holdouts against Integration. Instead, they're backing National Chairman Ray C. Bliss' blueprint for seeking possible gains among Negro voters, gains Bliss has said are necessary for a GOP victory. There was evidence Dlrksen was responding to a surge within his own ranks against having the party labeled as executioner of the civil rights bill. Dlrksen took Sens. Howard H. Baker, Jr., R-Tenn., and Len B. Jordan, R-Idaho, over with 1dm last week when he switched from opposing to supporting cloture. Sens. Frank Carlson, R- Kan., and Jack Miller, R-Iowa, made the same switch Monday. 57 American Former Olympic Official Dies MONTREAL (AP) * A.

The latest letter claimed to be from the crew Is one of a series of "confessions" alleged by North Korea to have come from the vessel's captain, Cmdr, Lloyd M, Bucher, Wd various other crew members. Officials said none of the five violations claimed in the latest letter was new because each of them had been referred to In one or another of the previous "confessions," What was new in the latest letter was the emphasis placed on expectation of the crew's re* lease If the United States would take the actions proposed in their appeal, "We do not doubt, 1 'the letter said, ''that you will see us swift* ly returned, 1 ' International Trophy Th* Ps vis Cup tennis matches were inaugurated in 1900.

The First K«« tional Bank will not limit Its BankAmerlcafd holders to upper Income, nor will it concentrate only on restaurants and motets or hotels as merchant members. Although the oank's credit card program will be Indepeftdentiy operated, the card will be Interchangeable throughout the nation anywhere It Is accepted, Because of the Interchange agreement with other participating banks outside the area, BankAmerlcard will provide travel and entertainment advantages as well as local retail acceptance. Originated In 1959 In California, there are currently more than 5,500,000 cardholders and approximately 150,000 me reliant members nationally. Explaining further plans for BankAmerlcard in the area, Mr. Hays states, "Its real benuty lies In the compatibility of services to Individual cardholders and merchants alike, such as extended payment options to the customers, with Immediate payment lo the merchants." Mr. Hays also pointed out that BankAmerlcard is the only major credit card whlchdoes not charge cardholders a fee to Join and belong. Other advantages to cardholders Include consolidating purchases Into one monthly statement, which may be paid by a single check; Improved record keeping, because cardholders receive copies of all sales tickets; and automatic credit at numerous business locations locally and throughout the nation, without having to apply for credit at each Individual establishment. ftofcfSOfl, Co/fison Holding Out I By MIKE RECHT Associated Press Sports Writer (Frank Robinson and Johnny Cjilllson feel Baltimore and [ladelphia are adding Insult .-•Injury wlththoir money of- fej$ to ftay bas p etell M thfs year. ''] The Orioles and Phillies, on the other hand, feel Robinson and Calllson have added their figures wrong. As a result of these mixed up mathematics of baseball value, the two slugging outfielders remained two of the biggest name holdouts as major league spring training moves on. Clete Boyer, third baseman for Atlanta, was another who has not found the right answer in his talks with the Braves. But some agreeable figures were reached Monday as Frank Howard signed the largest money contract ever, $47,500, by a Washington player; Mel Queen, Tommy Helms and rookie Jay Ritchie ended their holdout with Cincinnati, and the Orioles did come to terms with Dave Johnson and Curt Blefary. Robinson, however, remained Baltimore's big problem, and If everyone's figures are correct, the American League Triple Crown winner two years ago and the Orioles are $15,000 apart. Robinson, who sat out a month last season with double vision after a baseline collision and still managed to hit .311 with 94 runs batted In and 30 home runs, says he Is standing by $125,000. Personnel director Harry Dai- ton of the Orioles, who originally offered last year's $100,000 salary, then raised It to $105,000, reportedly Increased his offer to $110,000 Monday after talking to Robinson I'/a hours.
