MoHBAf Associated Press Writer w THE WEST WITH KEN« MEDY (AP) - "Bdbby" Is what's happening on campus. tho quadrangle and the basketball court are the forums Robert F, Kennedy has choeeft for the launching of his campaign to snatch the Democratic presidential nomination from Lyndon B. Johnson, By tonight he will have barn* stormed through a dozen cant' puses west of the Mississippi since declaring himself a candidate two weeks ago, All but one of his formal ap* pea ranees-as opposed to shopping center, airport and street corner rallies—havebeenbefore enthusiastic thousands of students. They're demanding that he "tell It like it is," and he Is responding vigorously, giving some answers they like and some they do not. Kennedy needs 1,312delegates when the Democratic National Convention gathers five months hence to nominate a candidate. .Few, if any of those delegates are likely to be a college student. Why the campus, then? There are several reasons, In the New York Democrat's case: — Since his days as attorney general, in the Cabinet of brother John, he has always had remarkable rapport with young people. Ho speaks best when he Is with them. — With his candidacy announced out of the blue, it fell upon his staff to generate big crowds fast. The campus was a natural choice. — Kennedy believes the students, as the moflt vocal and emotional segment of American society, will play a major role in prodding delegates to break tradition and throw the nomination his way. — Tha students' boisterousness and enthusiasm are Impressive on television and in the newspapers, helping Kennedy to reach an audience far beyond the ivied walls. And he needs all the publicity he can get. — Kennedy wanted to prove that Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, who also is waging a youth-oriented campaign, hadn't captured all the young hearts. For a figure as controversial as Kennedy J is, the response on campus has been decidedly one-sided in his favor. His campaign keynote—to throw out the Johnson policies in Vietnam, stop the bombing and get to the negotiating table—is what the students want to hear. But Robert Francis Kennedy is what they come out to see. To evaluate his effectiveness on campus, an observer does not listen closely to his speeches. He walks around the hall and watches the faces. The dominant expression is one of hopeful attentlveness to every word and gesture. Their lips are parted, their eyes wide. They have been waiting for something. Maybe this is it, They cheer when he says he understands those who conscientiously object to serving in Vietnam, and when he says, "If that's what your conscience tells you to do, then you have to do it." But they become confused when he adds: "But you must doit." But they become confused when he adds: "But you must be prepared to face the legal consequences." They cheer when he says he would like to abolish the draft; but many jeer when he adds: "But not now, with a war going on, I think we should draft by lottery, And student deferments should be abolished," IMrtn Z! r *!$I Brothtrof LBJ Sttt i :; Tough lire One of Nature's better mouse traps.

The United States ranks fourth in world population, McCarthy May Smash LBJ in Wisconsin By DONALD" M. ROTHBEIIG A ssociated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Reports reaching Sen. Robert F. Kennedy's headquarters from Wisconsin predict Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy will score a smashing victory over President Johnson in Tuesday's presidential primary. At least that's the way workers in Kennedy's Washington headquarters are interpreting the reports. Precisely what would constitute a smashing victory is a question that goes unanswered, * There's a chance that the Kennedy people are reading into the reports what they want to see, ' With Kennedy's name absent from the Wisconsin ballot, the word at Kennedy headquarters is "root for Gene," But not for long, Starting with the Indiana primary May 7, the word at Kennedy headquarters will change to "beat Gene"-and beat him badly, Kennedy's namn wtlj be on a presidential primary ballot for the first time in Indiana.

While the Kennedy strategists speak no evil of the Minnesota senator, whose New Hampshire victory demonstrated President Johnson's political vulnerability, they don't expect McCarthy to be in the race when the Democratic convention opens in Chicago Aug. 26. And they would like to see him out of the race before the May 28 Oregon primary, The Oregon primary and the California primary a week later are the keystones of the strategy evolved by the former New Frontiersmen running the Kennedy drive. If Kennedy is to sway delegates away from the incumbent president, he must win In both Oregon and California, This task will become immeasurably easier if McCarthy is out of the race. As the Kennedy men seek out delegates across the nation, they are running into two obstacles: Timing and the presides Kennedy's late entry into the race caught a portion of his potential support already committed to delegate slates pledged to President Johnson, either directly or through a stanrMn. This situation is graphically H* lustrated in California where the Johnson slate pledged to Atty. Gen. Thomas C. Lynch was made up before Kennedy announced—indeed it was made up when Kennedy was still insisting he wouldn't run. Many of the delegation members who signed pledges to support Lyach and through him the President, would have supported Kennedy had they know he planned to eater the race. Sp when a Kennedy slate was drawn up some weeks later, soois of its members turned out to be wives or nuspands or Abrams' Visit Is Shrouded in Secrecy By BOBHORTON AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Relative secrecy surrounds Gen. Creighton W. Abrams' Washington visit, generally considered a prelude to an announcement he will succeed Gen. William C. Westmoreland in Vietnam. The 53-year-old Abram, Westmoreland's top deputy arrived unannounced Monday night 'and his presence went largely unnoticed until a newsman spotted him In a Pentagon hallway Tuesday. Although the Defense Department didn't say so immediately. Abrams had just returned from a White House lunch with President Johnson. Confirming his presence later, the Pentagon said the four-star Army general was in Washington to report on plans to strengthen and modernize the South Vietnamese army. Abrams has been mentioned prominently as the officer who will fill Westmoreland's shoes by July 2 when the present Vietnam commander becomes Army chief of staff, The White House shed little additional light later in confirming that Abrams saw the Presl» dent along with unnamed "senior advisers" and would be in Washington a day or two. It was learned at the Pentagon that Abrams conferred with new Secretary of Defense Clark M, Clifford, Chairman Earle G, Wheeler of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; retiring Army Chief of staff Harold K, Johnson and others, Some administration officials speculated that the President-*who often his displayed a pen* chant tor surprise*- had secretly whfsked Abrams to Washington |or a surprise aanauneeinent of the new command change, As one administration spokes* m|n put it: w j| the President decides Abe's the guy 3n4 ftow*s the time, he m*y br|n| him put tomorrow tor a press confer* ence innouneemen|=- and we won't know In advance/' It wasn't necessary for fee President to br^g the stgeky, A rmy yice*nief of home to size him up. In assigning Abrams 10 months ago to go. to Vietnam as Westmoreland's principal aide, Johnson gave him a notable sendoff before reporters at the White House. The President has conferred with Abrams privately on several occasions in war council sessions both at the White House and in the Pacific. In view of speculation about Abrams' future, the Pentagon's explanation for his secret trip seemed rather strained. "One of his major duties in Vietnam has been his association with the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN)," the Defense Department told inquirers. Son of Pole Official Is Arrested By MARTIN ZUCKER Associated Press Writer WARSAW, Poland (AP) The son of a Polish government official has been arrested and accused of organizing a recent student demonstration for greater freedom, a Warsaw newspaper reports.
