(AP) Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy and Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman both addressed students audiences in Wisconsin Thursday. McCarthy drew cheers. Freeman, campaigning on behalf of President Johnson, heard hisses. Freeman cut short a prepared speech on U.S. achievements In food production and distribution when he was unable to make himself heard above the hisses from a University of Wisconsin audience in Madison, / McCarthy, a Democratic presidential candidate, emphasized a youth and student theme in an appearance at ;Marquet University in Milwaukee where he was greeted with a handclapping, standing ovation and 'chants of "We Want Gene!" Freeman halted his speech after telling an overflow crowd of some 700 persons It was "too much of a burden to attempt to speak over the bedlam" created by antiwar students. Many shouted "napalm" and "atrocities" during the talk. Before Freeman left the stage, one coed stood up and told him: "I'm extremely embarrassed for my university and I'd like to apologize." About hall the students stood and applauded her remark. The former Minnesota governor was booed from the time he entered the auditorium. A number of students carried placards calling for the election of McCarthy who is ODDosioe Johnson in Wisconsin's April 2 primary. "Is it right," Freeman asked, "that you people who are hollering at me are all supporters of Sen. McCarthy?' The question was met with jeers. Earlier in the day McCarthy claimed that the rise in milk support payments to 90 per cent ol,parity "is the first tangible benefit to the people of Wisconsin" of his candidacy lor the Democratic nomination, Freeman announced the increase Wednesday while campaigning lor Johnson. His tour ol the state was to be followed with Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey's arrival in Milwaukee tonight and with a visit next week by Robert Weaver, secretary ol housing and urban development. Lucky to Get That Coin Back Westmoreland Named Chief of Staff By FRED S, HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson's decision to bring Gen. William C, Westmoreland back from Vietnam and make him Army chief of staff Is ear* tain to be Interpreted by some as disenchantment with Westmoreland's conduct of the war. Westmoreland's reaction heightened the impression of a rebuff. "I regret to leave this war- torn land before the battle Is over and before peace Is restored," the four«tar general said in Saigon after teaming the news by telephone. Westmoreland said he got the word from Gen, Earle G. Wheeler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Stalf— not from Johnson, who has been considering Westmoreland's bid for up to about 200,000 more troops. The President's action, an. nounced abruptly Friday evening, deferred selection of a successor. This raised speculation Johnson might pass over Gen. Crelghton Abrams, Westmoreland's deputy, in favor of a new face with a new strategy, Westmoreland, who will replace re'lrlu,, " »T-:j K. Johnson a.o A nay chief In the Pentagon on July 2, said "I would hope" Abrams succeeds him as Vietnam war leader. "I have absolute confidence in the ability and leadership ol Gen.

Disorders Report Is Best Seller By AUSTIN SCOTT Assoilated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Only two weeks old, the paperback edition of the report of the President's Commission on Civil Disorders is already soaring toward million-seller status. And It's sparking a number of projects among businessmen, in churches, and in poor communities. A spokesman for Bantam Books said Thursday the publishing house has just ordered 70,000 more copies printed, bringing the total to 810,000. The 730-page, $1.25 edition sold By MARY ANITA LASETER Star Featare Writer How do you fata, credit-wise? that is another way of asking; "How Is your financial reputation?" You had better hop* for and work toward establishing a good credit rating. Why? The sensible use of credit has never been less understood or more abused than it is today. The only way to correct this situation is to teach our citizens— PARTiCULARLY OUR YOUNG PEOPLE-the meaning and Importance of sound individual ere* dlt and what It can do both to help and to hinder them. Debt, once looked upon as a personal tragedy, is now an accepted way of life, and to an extent, the growth of personal credit has been responsible for the steady Increase in our standard of living. Serious problems arise, however, when this credit is mis* used. It is a sad fact that as our credit economy expands, so too, do its abuses by people who don't understand the Importance of protecting their personal credit. What principles should form the foundation of a sound approach to family credit? W. D. Conel, General Manager, Los Angeles, Retail Mat-chants Credit Association, in 1901 gave the following suggestions which are equally sound today. 1. Establish your family- credit program with a secured credit risk-that Is, an obligation involving a piece of merchandise which the seller can reclaim if you default (e.g., a television set or automobile). 2, Build your credit by using it Judiciously—by saving enough for a reasonable down payment tor growing range of products or services; then meeting every payment deadline unfailingly. 3. On any credit purchase, pay down as much as possible and pay it off In as short a time as possible. The least expensive means of obtaining a line of credit is through charge accounts in your local stores. 4, Be conservative in the use of credit. NEVER OVEROBLI- GATE YOURSELF. Be sure you have a margin of Income over and above your normal living expenses and present credit obligations. NEVER tie up your entire income on time payments. When you do, a few days layoff or an emergency in the family can be catastrophic. What about an emergency? Nearly everyone experiences such an event at some time, II you SHOULD get into credit diffi- cultles and are completely unable to meet your obligations, you are advised to go directly to your creditors, tell them you situation frankly, and try to work out some means of repayment possible within your present straitened circumstances. Most creditors will lean over backward to help you work out a solution. How is a good credit rating established?

That Female Is Powerful MADCSON, Wis. (AP) - The pesty sswfly may be about to be done in by the female of the species. Researchers at the University ol Wisconsin discovered a chemical which attracts male saw- flies to females. They hope to take the potent material and use it to gather the males so they can be destroyed. The chemical, produced by virgin female sawflies, is so powerful that on* ten-thousandth ol a microgram can Interest thousands ol male saw- flies. The scientists, H. C.

If you pay consistently on time, you'll show up satisfactorily here. Are you stable? Individual stability usually indicates a good credit risk, For this reason, people who don't move frequently, who own thfllr home (providing they have some real equity in It), who art married (and have children) are the least likely to leave merchants hold' ing unpaid bills. Do you have a verifiable and substantial employment record? If you are employed by a wild company and making a reasonable wage, your credit potential rises. Credit Is a precious and highly useful asset in family living. It should bo treated this way— and not casually destroyed out of greed or ignorance. Now Nixon Turns fo Winning By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Months sooner than he had figured, Richard M. Nixon is starting to make the switch from jockeying for the Republican nomination to the much bigger goal of winning the presidency. Gov. Nelson A, Rockefeller's announced Thursday removing himself from consideration for the nomination left Nixon without a serious rival. He immediately began revising his political timetable and said visits to a number of states „ that had to take low priority while ho was still seriously challenged l«r primari&J will be possible much sooner. Does this mean ho is starting now his campaign for the Nov. 7 election, he was asked, "Yes," Nixon said in an interview in Milwaukee Thursday night. The GOP and tho press wore primed Thursday to hear Rockefeller announce he had finally heard the call and was going to shoot for tho GOP nomination. They were stunned to hear him say Just the opposite. He summed It up in his first sentence: "I have decided today to reiterate unequivocally that I am not a candidate campaigning, directly or Indirectly, for the presidency of the United States." Lest anyone looked for bidden meanings, ho warned, "1 moon, and I shall abide by, precisely what I say." While emphasizing that he will not take tho nomination for granted, Nixon said the Rockefeller withdrawal means there will bo major changes In where he goes and whom he sees. In the next two months, Nixon said, he will try to confer with each of the 26 Repuboican governors—including Rockefeller— and "as many senators and congressmen and other party leaders as I can." Also campaigning in Wisconsin Thursday Democratic contender Eugene J. McCarthy made a bid for Republican sup* port. There is little difference between the thinking of Nixon and President Johnson on the matter ol war policy, the Minnesota senator said. "The withdrawal ol Gov. Rockefeller from the contest for the Republican nomination leaves Wisconsin Republicans with only one alternative to the present policies ol mounting conflict In Vietnam," he said. "Only by asking for a billot in the Democratic primary and voting for my candidacy can they give the American people an alternative choice in November." McCarthy planned $ short foray to Detroit today, then expected to resume campaigning in Milwaukee. Nad to Come Cut With Banff SA.NTA FE, N.M.
