Soys Wounds Hal After nomination By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey says it's a "modern medical miracle" the way Democrats heal their wounds after national conventions-and latest explosive developments indicate that's why they may need In 1968. As Humphrey spoke optimistically of his party's powers of re* juvenation Sunday, its presidential contest was embroiled in these developments; — Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D- N.Y., and President Johnson aides traded charges over Kennedy's reported offer not to run for president if Johnson appointed a blue-ribbon commission to revise Vietnam war policy. A high administration source called Kennedy's proposal an ultimatum and said Johnson spurned it as a political deal. Kennedy said the White House widened its credibility gap by distorting the proposal. — Kennedy said he would have "grave reservations" about supporting Johnson for ro-eloction if Johnson gets (he nomination and "if we are going to follow the same policies we arc following at the moment." — Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, also an anti-Johnson candidate, rejected Kennedy's offer to aid his Wisconsin primary campaign and said of Kennedy: "I don't altogether approve of what he's done in the past three or four days." — McCarthy rejected flatly the idea of becoming Kennedy's vice presidential running rn.ite. "I think that's beyond imagination," hn said. But Humphrey announced he will personally campaign for Johnson in state primaries, said (he Democratic convention will nominate Johnson for re-election—and predicted both Kennedy awl McCarthy would support the President. "My, how wounds do heal right after conventions," Humphrey said. The vice president appeared on ABC's "Issues and Answers," Kennedy on NBC's "Meet the Press" and Mc- Carthy nn CBS 1 "Face the Nation." Kennedy wus asked what he would do about the Vietnam war and he replied: "I would begin a de-escalation of the effort." A congressman's poll, meanwhile, showed McCarthy favored over Johnson in Wisconsin where the nation's second primary cotim-i April 2. McCarthy got 48.6 per cent and Johnson 34.7 per cent of the sampling by Rep. Robert W. Kastentmler, D*Wis., in hisdis* tricl dominated by Madison, the state capital, tho poll was taken before Kennedy announced his candidacy Saturday and he got a G per cent write-In. On the Republican side, New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller promised his "most earnest and careful consideration" of whether to declare himself an active presidential candidate next week and enter Oregon's May 28 primary. The promise came after a Sunday meeting with Oregon backers In his New York City apartment. Rep. John Dellenback, co-chairman of the Oregon Draft Rockefeller Committee, said the governor gave no hint what his decision will bo. Dellenback also said California Gov. Ronald Reagan may be an active candidate in the Oregon primary. "Reagan has had a staff in the field for a number of months now, setting up in Oregon," Dellenback said. "I would be very much surprised if they are doing this as an empty exercise." Figures to Get Even VERONA, Va. (AP) - Verona landowner Stanley L. Price wanted to set up a trailer park on his property.

Hockersmith, president of a LitUe Rock advertising firm, said Sunday that if a fee he received from the construction firm that built Arkansas' pavilion at HemisFair '68 was a conflict of interest "then every agency in the nation is in conflict, because this is exactly the way its handled everywhere." Hockersmith's firm is to receive $13,500 from Arthur Pugh and Associates of Houston, the firm which constructed the pavilion, Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller said Saturday that Hockersmith's fee "on the surface . . . looks to me like an inappropriate conflict of interest." "I wonder if Gov. Rockefeller realizes he was paying 15 per cent to his advertising agencies during the 1966 political campaigns?" Hockersmith asked. "Obviously the governor's insinuations are politically motivated, and I resent them, "The whole thing just looks like a witch hunt to me," Hock* ersmlth said, Hockersmith handled former Gov, Orval Faubus' political advertising during four of his campaigns, and the two other members of the Hockersmith firm, Ed Dozier and Paul Thorn' as, were associated with anoth« HIGH but not dry is this 23-fooHaii wafer founteta in a Milwaukee jnanafm. 1 - juriag powp.ggy p,o,ol.

Gogebic County Sheriff Ches* ter •?» Prebish said Pearson had been drinking heavily and was incoherent when captured by patrons of a tavern, where one man was slain and a woman wounded* The tavern was the last stop on the rampage. Authorities said the slayer first visited a modern, one-story home about a mile away, where four persons, including a mother and her daughter were killed in the living room. A 12-yearold girl, trying to hide in her bedroom closet, was wounded when a bullet was fired through the door. A trail of blood was left throughout the home. The killer then went to another home, killing one man and wounding his wife. The next stop was the tavern, "He Just walked in the door and started shooting. He didn't say a word," said one customer. Mrs. Puisto's husband, Alex, and another patron, John Nle- mi, of Ironwood, lunged for the man. Pulsto went for the rifle, the customer said, while Niemi threw some punches and clubbed the man with a whisky bottle. One of the women killed In the first home, Mrs. Sally Johnson, 61, had dated Pearson, according to Deputy Sheriff Richard Bennetts. v Killed with her were her daughter, Mrs. Vienna Gustafson, owner of the home, Mrs." Katherine Rigoni, 59, of I' wood, and Daniel E. Weiss, 6' of Lansing. ^ Mrs. Gustafson's 12-year-old daughter, Robin, was shot in the stomach through the door of the closet where she had tried to hide. Bennetts said the killer next went to the Raymond Hautala home, near the tavern, where he fatally shot Hautala, 49, In the chest and wounded his wife, Lempi, 61. The deputy said Pearson, who lived alone in a cabin a few miles from Lake Superior, "used to drink, but he appeared to have cut it out In past years. He seemed to be an all right fellow." -B.

Douglas, ofice a liberal thorn In the side of then-Senate tJemderaflc Leader Lyndon B, Johnson, now pro* vldes valuable support for the President on two major battle* fronts: the cities and the Vietnam war. Still hard-working and healthy as he approaches his 76th birthday on \farch 26, Douglas heads the President's National Commission on Urban Problems and is founder and co-chairman of a committee of prominent Americans backing the war effort. Douglas has led urban com* mission hearings in 18 cities around the country seeking ways to revitalize the depressed cities. The commission's report isn't due until year's end* But most of Douglas' recommendations to date have followed Johnson policies. And Douglas praised the recent presidential message on the cities to Congress. Douglas says he formed the Vietnam citizens committee without prompting from Johnson, The one-time economics professor, who enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943 as a 50-year- old private, drew to the new group such distinguished retired military leaders and statesmen as former Presidents Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower and General of the Army Omar Bradley. Avoiding the stance of either all-out opponents of the war or those calling for military escu- lation, the committee in its initial statement last Oct. 25 generally endorsed the President's war policy, saying: "We favor a sensible road between capitulation and the indiscriminate use of raw power." Using almost the same words forth 18, as adminisirlHoli officials W BS- terpreting ffiis tear's massite, coordinated Communist attacks on SotJtfi Viefsafflese ciH^s, Douglas told a rdportets • "My own view Is tftftt the communists failed in their dfb- jective Ifi that they did not get any appreciable support frdfn the people of the cities." ", Explaining in an Interview $s support for the Vietnam Wat, the tall, plain-featured man with crew-cut while hair said, 'I happen to believe in collective security. 1 believed in it agairisl Hitler, Russia and Korea, and I think this (Vietnam) is part of the same family, \ to the Senate, the Illinois Democrat earned the adoration of liberals for his leadership on domestic reforms, i During an 18-year Senate career that ended in 1966 when he was beaten by Republican Charles H. Percy, Douglas led the drive for much of the landmark social legislation of tne last generation: Minimum wages, medicare, federal aid to education and—especially—civil rights. Civil rights once was a battle issue between Johnson and Douglas. As one who was close to both men recalls It, Douglas constantly refused to budge from his principles to make way for a Johnsonian consensus. Fuming, Johnson used to repeat over and over to friends that "politics is the art of the possible." The associate recalls that "Johnson greatly disliiced Douglas, and Douglas had no great affection for Johnson." There is no Indication today that the relationship—despite Douglas' support of key Johnson policies—has flowered into friendship. Douglas said his current activities haven't drawn any words of gratitude from Johnson. And while Douglas occasionally attends a White House function, he said he has purposely avoided personal contact with the President to avoid Implications the citizens group stand on Vietnam is influenced by Johnson. The er advertising agency in 1966 when it handled the advertising for Jim Johnson in his unsuccessful race against Rockefeller, Hockersmith said he felt that he was being caught between Rockefeller's "political machinations" and attempts by Pugh to make his agency the "scapegoat for a poor job," Orville Richolson of Newport, one of Rockefeller's appointees on the state Publicity and Parks Commission, questioned Hooker- smith's fee at a commission meeting Saturday, Richolson's remarks followed a statement by a group of Little Rock busi* nessmen that the pavilion was a, "shame" to the state, "The only issue hereiswheth* er the exhibit measures up to the specifications in the con* tract Arthur Pugh has with the Publicity and Parks Commission," Hockersmith said. "If it ioesn't, he is liable and re. sponsjble to the commission." Hockersmith said his firm de. signed the pavilion and made a mockup of the bas relief map of Arkansas that it features but added that his agency had noth,* ing to do with the construction, He said there were no complaints when the plan was pre* sented to the commission. "tf MJ-. Pugh was ijnable to achieve the Jevel of quality we specified, the fault is his," Hockersmtth said, Richolson pointed out at the commission 'meeting that the Hockersmith agency had signed its contract \vith Pugh a week before the commission signed its contract with the Houston firm. "I in no vvay tried to sell the services of Mr. Pugh to the commission and didn't appear before them to do so in any form or fashion/' Hockersmith said. lectrocomp man cometh... , . , and in his hand is a brief case full of comfort for your home and all your family.
