John Glenn pulls out of Senate race (Continued from page 1) his name being left on the ballot or by a write-in vote. It seems to me that, once I have withdrawn, that's that, he said. He said he did not know what his future plans will be, but he left open the possibility that he may re-enter politics in the future. Doctors Disceuragins Glenn based his political resignation on a discouraging medical report from his doctors in San Antonio over the weekend. "These tests have led to the conclusion that the conditions causing my difficulties will probably not be resolved for at least a couple of months," Glenn said. "Doctors have advised that carrying on in a work status only aggravates the condition and can delay recovery, with the possibility that such agitation could develop into a chronic situation from which recovery might be more difficult." Glenn said the doctors had recommended that he plan no activities for the ne.vt several months. With a wry grin, he described his accident, in which he slipped on a bathroom throw rug while trymg to hang a mirror, as "a little incongruous. 'After all the things I have been through—flight training, two wars, jet flying, space flight — to get hurt like this is hard to believe," he said. Alitalia airliner crashes into Mt.

WASHINGTON - It takes very little to set the Washington whispering galleries humming with gossip about Demo cratic Vice Presidential possibilities, and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara has managed it with a glowing endorsement of the Johnson war on poverty. There is no visible evidence that, the President stands in need of - a bipartisan gesture (McNamara is a Republican) nor a bow to business (McNamara is a former president of the Ford Motor Company). State samplings show an aston­ ishing acceptance of the notion that Johnson has it made while business likes him fine. This gives the President a rather free choice of Vice Pres-| ident. Party leaders have already perceived it, and some have had some quiet discussions about how to capitalize on it to avoid a bruising conven tion fight by reaching for the sophisticated air and style which John F. Kennedy.made popular. Their cautious discussions have explored the Cabinet and Supreme Court, the elder statesmen and intellectuals of the party, particularly those identified with foreign affairs. They do well'to be cautious, for their search will probably not be very popular m the statehouses, the Senate and among those whose claims are strictly political. Yet some party pros readily concede that they would prefer; to avoid a bruisins convention fight between admirers of Sen. Hubert Humphrey, who are reasonably numerous, and the rather complex forces which would rally to Attorney General Robert Kennedy if he did not lift a finger. Outside Washington, other Vice Presidential aspirants are little discussed and contest between them is taken for granted. The Senator is the major voice of liberalism and will be even more so should be emerge the victorious general of the pending civil rights struggle.
