An aide said they asked to appraise the governor of their efforts before he decides whether to take his name off the Oregon ballot. Voters In Mississippi also were at the polls today—where while conservative Charles H. Griffin was the heavy favorite in a runoff against Negro leader Charles Evers for a vacated congressional seat, McCarthy ended his New Hampshire campaign by accusing Johnson backers of broadcasting a lie and "attacking the motives and loyalty of any man who dares run in an election against the President." The Minnesota Democrat said Sen. Thomas J. Mclntyre, D- N.H., was claiming in radio advertisements that McCarthy would "honor draft dodgers and deserters"—and demanded Mc- lntyre take the radio spots off the air.

Charles Percy, R-ni., and California Gov. Ronald Reagan. The Democrats are Johnson, McCarthy, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., and former Alabama Gov. George Wallace. Any of the eight can withdraw their names by declaring they are not candidates. — Wisconsin Atty. Gen. Bronson C. Ux Follette announced he will be a democratic candidate for governor.
