American officials said it would be premature to consider such a move in the absence of any firm indication that such talks will take place. In Washington an official who asked not to be identified said a tlilrd party might be needed to settle the issue of where the initial peace contacts should be made. The United States and Hanoi have been squabbling over this question, with Washington contending it should be in a neutral country while Hanoi has suggested Warsaw in Communist Poland, and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This official's comment generated speculation the Soviet Union or the United Nations secretary-general, U Thant, might be asked to help get the talks under way, Animal, Not flower The sea Jily js actually an animal.

Humphrey, Nixon Are Favorites WASHINGTON (AP) - An Associated Press poll indicates the nation's newspaper editors rate Vica President Hubert H Humr.hrey and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon as heavy favorites >;o be pitted In next November's race for the White House. Hump'irey, still silent on his political plans, was stamped a better than 2-1 favorite over Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D- N.Y., in a random poll of 80 editors attending the Am.—ican Society of Newspaper Editors' annual convention. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D~ Minn., like Kennedy a declared candidate to; ttv? Democratic nomination, d.'.dn't receive a single vote in the sampling. Qi the Republican side, Nixon — the only declared GOP candidate—was a prohibitive favorite over such potential challengers as New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and Gov, Ronald Reagan a* California. . Those picking Humphrey credited ilm with the advantages of an tncutnbont administration's party following plus backing from labor and solid support in the Sou*h., "I think the organization will take it in the end. It usually doas," said H. P. McCall, editorial page editor of the New Orleans Tim 3s-Picayune, Editors were asked who they thought -would win the nomination of each party, rather than who the/ preferred personally. These were the results on the Democratic side: Humphrey, 46; Kennedy, 20; President Johnson, 4: McCarthy, 0; Undecided, 10.

Henry Belk, editor of the Goldsboro (N.C.) News-Argus, added, "Hs hasn't gof the horns in the South he used to wear." Charles Pearson, editorial page editor of the Wichita Eagle and Beacon, said Humphrey will have strength "in areas wfiare K-janedy is unpopular, which is a lot of areas." William B. Dickinson, managing editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin, differed In choosing Kennedy as the likely nom.'nee. Dickinson said, "I think he has charisma,, I think he has many political skills. And he certainly has ample financing." Thomas L. Boardman, editor of the Cleveland Press, was one of the four who tapped Johnson for the nomination despite his disavowal. "I think something will come of the Vietnam peace talks and he won't be able to back away from it," Boardnr.n said.

Thursday, Killed in Prison Riot By MIKE PUTZEL Associated Press Writer RALEIGH, N. C, (AP)-Five prisoners were killed and 80 persons injured early today when guards at North Carolina Central Prison fired on a crowd of about 500 demonstrating prisoners, Five of the injured were guards, the others prisoners, State Correction Commissioner V, Lee Bounds said the riot erupted shortly after 1:30 a.m. when the inmates set fire to a small building in the yard of the maximum security facility and "began throwing lighted torches at unarmed custodial officers." About 45 state highway patrolmen and 50 Raleigh policemen responded to the prison's emergency call for support for prison guards. Prisoners had staged a sit- down strike in the yard Tuesday and presented a list of grievances to Commissioner Bounds, who said he refused to negotiate with the inmates. "I talk to inmates daily, but I do not yield to inmate demands that I do anything," Bounds said afterward. He said the demonstrators were confined to an open yard by custodial officers armed with chemical MACE and nightsticks, After the building was set afire, Bounds reported, thepris* oners- many of them armed with homemade «-e^pons and torches- bepan to advance on the guards oh the grounds, "They began throwing lighted torches on the unarmed custo* dial officers, and the armed cus» todial officers began opening fire," Bounds said, Armed guards stationed on the walls of the 75-year-old structure in Raleigh fired down on the crowd with shotguns. Bounds said the five officers injured in the brief battle received minor wounds from rich* ocheting shot and prisoners' weapons. Some of the injured inmates, he said, were reported in critical condition at the prison hospital, and three men were taken to a Raleigh hospital when the prison hospital was filled to capacity.

Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman has said his department will consider whether national guidelines should be instituted to help states and communities decide which children should get free or reduced-price meals under the regular school-lunch program. Freeman's statement came Tuesday after a churchwomen's committee charged the program is failing to feed millions of children who are too poor to pay the costs of a basic meal. It called for a nationwide free-lunch program and said a study showed many poor children are going hungry because there are no uniform eligibility standards, "That children are hungry in wealthy America is an outrage which the conscience cannot permit officialdom to explain away," said Jean Fairfax, chairman of the Committee on School Lunch participation. The committee consists of representatives of the National Council of Catholic Women, the National Council of Jewish Women, the National Council of Negro Women, Protestant Church Women United and the Young Women's Christian Association.
