"Or Is that fasse?" The young guitarist doesn't .know it, but he tries, and Ken- 'nedy, at the end of a dreary • night in the first week of his campaign for the Democratic .nomination, sings softly. Now and then, a party pol breaks off from his conference With a Kennedy aide and, turn- 'ing in his seat, stares blankly at the man lolling in the back of the bus. The South Boston Irish crowd turns out under gray wet skies 'to yell and laugh and wave. The Kennedy brothers, Bobby and Teddy, are marching In the St. Patrick's Day Parade. They smile and wave at the faces but as they march they talk In terse undertones about the challenge. "I think we can do it if we make the big pull," Robert earnestly tells Edward, who looks dubious. Behind them, a red-faced party functionary mutters to a hurrying assistant: "Where the hell is the little girl with the flowers?" ' "Don't worry," says the other. "Next corner." And—poof 1—with apparent charming spontaneity, a pretty, shyly smiling child materializes from the sidelines and hands Covered Patio View off the Now Hacienda Homo Protistont Unit Movin Fast Bobby Kennedy a bouquet of green carnations. He says "Thank you very much," still walking, and the cameras record the scene and he hands the bouquet to someone and it is never seen again. The candidate is crushed by the crowd. The smile is fixed on his face, and he is seemingly unconcerned about the physical danger. But his aides are sweating and nervous and gasping for breath and they form a tight ring around him and push him through the crowd. The people slap him on the head and pull his hair and touch his coat and scream his name and yell for autographs although he can barely lift his arm. His hair tousled into a mop, his expensive suit rumpled, his shirtsleeves stained by sweat, he climbs atop the back seat of an open car and waves to the throngs pressing about him. He says, very softly amidst the din, "Hello. How are you? Thank you." And the people squeal and run along side and jump up and down. His California campaign manager, Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, tells him, "You know, this is better than President Kennedy got in California at the end of the I960 campaign." "Yes," says Robert Kennedy, waving and smiling. — Hope Star photo 8 Ft. by 14 Ft. • Covered patio area with view of oversized garage, adjoining Bar-B-Que area.

"While we're talking about It, It's happening/' one theologian remarked. The point was brought out repeatedly as the Consultation on Church Union today sought to map procedures for merging 10 American Protestant denominations with a total of 25.5.mlllion members Into a single church. Declaring that time has run out for long-term, gradual steps in the face of the swift changes, the Rev, Dr, George Johnston, dean of United Theological College, Montreal, told the meetIng: "The time for union was the day before yesterday." The Rev. Dr. James 1. Me- Cord, president of Princeton Theological Seminary, sounded a similar note, citing the rise of a "radical, practical Christianity" in which various believers spurned church divisions to join in united action. "We stand at a crucial juncture not in the sense of whether we go on or not, but in the sense of whether we can be creative enough to reflect what is already happening in Christianity today," he said. A study report presented here also described widespread and increasing interdenominational operations in many matters, at national as well as local levels, despite the continued official separation of the churches. "The preservation of denominational identity in all situations is no longer taken for granted as mrmftf," tMf^pftff said, | the consultation's seventh In- BUS! migttnf. spened involving delegations from participating denomination^ %s well as observers from abou&O other churches, including B6* man Catholicism. % Participants already h$ye agreed on principles of faith Mid order, allowing wide diversion worship forms, but now *te trying to work out the meehift- Ics of linking up their different organizational structures, •£< A panel of lawyers, headed^y Oliver Schroeder of Clevelanifs Western Reserve Universifir, said there are no legal barrios to the project, £; He said that in any pioneering venture, deed must precede die technical legalism and addgd: "What we're doing in ou0r space is not-yet legally define*!, but if we had waited until it wis we'd still be oa the launching paid." | Churches involves in the consultation are Methodist, EpiscjO- pal, United Presbyterian, Pre^s* byterian U.S., Disciples, United Church of Christ, Evangelical United Brethren, African Me&i- odist Episcopal, African Mefti- odlst Episcopal Zion and Christian Methodist Episcopal. | Thro* Shot*, I No Driving | WASHINGTON (AP) - J?A Washington traffic offic^l downed three double shots % Scotch, blew into a Britisjj- imde gadget to test sobriety and decided not to drive hom'e.
