"The great industries of the future will be ^education, research and entertainment. "Before the development of agriculture man didn't really"' work. He lived as a hunter. In the tlm*. ahead agriculture, as we know it today, will be ended. It is too inefficient. Synthetic foods will be produced more cheaply and In larger quantities.

Other changes Clarke foresees: "Man may be able to enjoy life 24 hours a day instead of 10 by abolishing sleep. Some forms of life do without sleep.

Castro Takes Over Private Enterprise HAVANA (AP) - Re-sound- Ing his battle cry against all private enterprise In Cuba, Prime Minister Fidel Castro declared Wednesday night the Communist party would soon take over all private bars and clubs. fa a 4Vj-hour speech the Cuban leader also said the 1967-C8 sugar crop would fall 2.5 million metric tons short of the goal of 8 million tons, but he pledged Cuba would overcome its economic troubles.

Nixon says the reason he Is not ready to spell out the details of his plan to end the war In Vietnam Is because he Is reserving his "big guns" for use against President Johnson If he wins the Republican presidential nomination. "I have to adapt my strategy so as to win the (presidential) primaries with the least expenditure of ammunition," Nixon said, "I am reserving my big guns for use against Johnson," i__..Ilie former, vice .president discussed this and other questions In an Interview In his Fifth Avenue apartment In New York. In campaigning for the New Hampshire and Wisconsin prl- triaries, Nixon repeatedly said, "We will end the war In Vietnam find win the peace in the Pacific." Asked if he intends this as a pledge, Nixon replied emphatically, "It's a pledge." He added, "I have no magic formula, no gimmick. If i had a gimmick I would tell Lyndon Johnson. That would be a moral obligation. "But I do have some specific Ideas on how to end the war. They are primarily In the diplomatic area." He said he considers the chances "60 to 40 against" the possibility that the North Vietnamese will agree to come to the conference table before the national elections next November. With regard to his own actions in the campaigning, Nixon said: "I'm not going to carry on my conscience anything that will destroy that 40 per cent chance." Nixon has gone to South Vietnam several times In recent years. He published an article In the quarterly, Foreign Affairs, entitled "Asia after Viet- narn." He said he believes that one reason he is now considered the front-runner for the GOP nomination is he has concentrated on studying foreign affairs, "A man becomes a serious contender or candidate only when events fit what he has to offer," Nixon said, "In my case, I think the fact that the foreign policy Issue became predominant agam-and i could travel abroad and speak with some authority on It—that raised me above the others," If domestic problems, not the war In Vietnam, were predorni* nant today, Nixon said, "I don't think there would have been a tendency to look to me, I think the tendency would have been to go to what has been called 'those who manage the cities and states,' " In that case, he continued, Gov, George Romney of Michi* gan would have been in * stronger position to make tha race for the presidency, Nixon said Gov, Nelson A, Rockefeller of New York "has some expertise" in foreign policy, ''but tie himself has taken the veil. 1 ' He referred to the fact that Rockefeller has not stated his views on Vietnam in recent i Moore li.v. NEWARK, !U, (AP) - Negro ami white militants it) this city are urging their followers to buy guns for selMetonse as * result oflastsummer'sriots. Each group btam-s the nthor for escalating an arm* T-ACC. Police records reflect some increase In pistol permits In this area, but there Is no w.»y to pfove this results from (he ra* clal situation. "I have continuously staled to In our community, and t continue lo do so now, thai they need, are! It Is their constitutional right, (o hnve a weapon to protect themselves," says WHH» Wright, president of the Negro United Afro*Ameriean Association. "Buy yourself a weapon and bring It home," advises Anthony Imperlale, an ex-Marine svr- geant who heads a while neighborhood citizens council. The two expressed their opinions in Interviews. Wright, a 36-year-old unemployed engineer, said last July's riots proved to Newark's Negroes "that we need to be armed just to protect ourselves," "I would not stand aside and watch some of the shootings and killings and some of the violent acts of brutality taking place In my community that took place In this town In July, under any circumstance," he said In his tiny office in the heavily Negro Central Ward. Wright claimed thnt most Negroes aren't armed, but that the white community Is engaged In an arms race, Imperlale, 37, who runs a karate school In an Italian section a few miles north of Wright's locale, said he doesn't advocate or condone unnecessary violence. "I am not telling you to go out and do what the radicals are doing and burn and shoot, but I'm telling you this, that If the law Is not permitted to openly arrest these people, if the law cannot control it because the mayor will not make them, then It is time for us, under the Constitution, to defend ourselves to the limit," he said. Imperlale claims 1,500 supporters of Ills North Ward Citizens Council, Wright declines to ,glye membership,<>tigur ; e&,,,but city loaders feel he speaks for a sizable bloc In this city of 400,000 which Is 50 per cent Negro. Authorities have made no public comment on the activities of the rival groups. Nor do they offer any explanations for records which show that the number of handgun permits Issued In Newark and Its suburbs rose from 250 In I960 to 522 in 1967. Statewide, the number of pistol permits under New Jersey's two-year-old gun control law rose from 5,115 In I960 to 8,204 In 19C7. The number of Identification cards for rifles and shotguns, however, showed a slight decrease, both statewide and In the Newark area. Police Director Domlnlck Spl- na, in response to an AP Inquiry, said through a spokesman he "deplores the fact tliat any group is arming. "A great dsal of the fault lies in the fact that racists and extremists on both sides are permitted by the U.S. attorney general and that state and other local prosecuting agencies Have not established firm lines against racist threats arirl against incitements." Reports by the President's ami New Jersey governor's . commissions on civil disorders "did nothing but Increase the bitterness and anger of the white militants and therefore caused a greater schism between the races," Spin* added. months. Nixon repeated his assertion that If Rockefeller wants the GOP nomination he must enter and win some primaries, Rocke» feller, long asserting that he Is not a candidate, has said he will decide within 10 days whether to permit his name to remain on the ballot in the Oregon primary, May 28, In 1904, the governor won over Sen. Barry Goldwaier In tha Oregon primary, Nixon's figures in the New Hampshire primary were lm» pressive, Among them: ~ He got 79 per cent of the vote, a total of 34,005, exceeding the forecasts, r* He '*oulci up his campaign urging Republicans to turn out worrying that the lack of a real contest might lead many of them to stay home, They didn't. There were 106,401 Republican votes cast, 13 4 000 more than la the hotly contested primary there four years ago, Nixon had said away from the platform that he would be satisfied with a 73,000 total.
