Pennsylvania T----J™ RV JACK BELL I ornaaoes By JACK BELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey is trying in his still-unannounced bid for the Democratic presidential nomination to forge on a national scale the kind of farm-labor coalition be helped create in Minnesota. To the surprise of no one Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman came out for Humphrey Tuesday. He said he had told President Johnson in advance of his intentions and added that he thinks Johnson is going to remain neutral, Humphrey, who has made it clear he will run on the administration's record, already has the backing of -AFL-C10 President George Meany. .

Kill 11 in Two States By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tornadoes struck small communities in Kentucky and Ohio Tuesday, dealing out death and destruction, Twisters hit two towns in Michigan, causing property damage but no fatalities. The death count stood at 11 with scores injured and hundreds homeless. There were five victims in the Wheelersburg, Ohio, area, four in Falmouth, Ky., and two near Cincinnati. Property damage was great at Frontier, Mich., but only one injury was reported. "We were going through a taste of death right there," reported Henry Dance, 77, a Falmouth resident who was at home with his wife. "It sounded like a clap of thunder," he said, "and then the roof began to fall. Holding on to each other, we fell down by the divan and part of the floor fell on us. The Lord saved us, that's all." A residential area of about six square blocks bore the brunt of the storm in Falmouth, a community of 2,600 in northern Kentucky. The business section of town was largely spared. The twister, swirling out of thunderstorms Tuesday, struck at midafternoon at points near the Ohio river. "We saw the funnel coming," reported Mrs. William Clinger, who works at the Falmouth Outlook, a weekly newspaper, "All of us ran into the basement. There was a horrible noise, like a train coming. Then it hit." Mrs. Lewis Mockbee, 72, said, "It just began to blow, then the hail came, breaking out windows. I got down into a corner and prayed." The Mockbee home was spared, but a garage was destroyed. Falmouth Mayor Max Goldberg said about one-third of the small farming community was destroyed. He said property damage would run between $2 and $3 million, Gov. Louie B. Nunn of Kentucky rushed to the scene of devastation. He said quick preliminary estimates show that at least 75 homes "were damaged to the extent of $15,000 each." The victims were an elderly couple and two small children. More than 100 injuries were reported, We wish to express our sincere thanks and apprecia. lion to our many friends and relatives for every deed of Kindness, words of affection, gifts of food and flowers and most of ajj lor your prayers during the illness and death of our mother.

Jodie Bryant Bennett Brushes Off Past Defeat LITTLE ROCK (AP)-* Bruce Bennett, passing off his defeat for re-election for attorney general in 1966 as "a bad year for the 'ins,' " announced Tuesday his candidacy for the Demo* cratic gubernatorial nomination. Bennett described the administration of Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller as "an expensive luxury" which "disappointed and disenchanted" Arkansans "can no longer afford." "I cannot and will not promise a pie in the sky administration — everyone cannot have everything they want just because they want it instantly," Bennett said. Bennett sought the office once before when he was defeated with other hopefuls in 1960 by former Gov. Orval E. Faubus. Bennett was asked why he thought voters would support him this year when two years ago he lost in the Democratic primary while seeking re-election as attorney general. "I won six out of eight races, which is a pretty good track record," Bennett said. He included his two successful cani" paigns for prosecutor in Union, Cola, Ouachita and Calhoun counties and his four terms as attorney general. "I believe two years ago was somewhat of an antivote," he said. "It was a bad year for the 'ins.' " Bennett promised a campaign of stumping the entire state because he said the only politics he knew was "to get out on the back roads and see the people." "I'm going to see more people than any candidate this summer," Bennett said. "The so-called kingmsJcers are no longer the kingmakers as far as delivering any large block of votes. They don't do it." Bennett was asked about his affiliation with the Arkansas Loan & Thrift Co. at Fort Smith, which has been placed in federal receivership and whose officers face trial this summsr on charges filed by the state Securities Division. Bennett said that his wife had held stock in the company, but that she sold it "either year before last or last spring." He also said he never gave the company any opinions while he served as attorney general that would have enabled it to operate. Vietnam Police Say Fund Cut Won't Help By BARRY KRAMER Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP) - South Vietnam's controversial national police chief has told his chief American adviser that withholding of American funds and equipment won't force him to fire police officials the Americans consider corrupt or inefficient. Brig. Gen. Nguyen Ngoc Loan wrote U.S. adviser John Manopoli he would pay no attention to U.S. reports on police personnel "when they threaten to withdraw support as a /mans of applying pressure." "If your division sees fit to cut aid to any police unit as a means of applying pressure, please feel free to do so," Loan said in the letter, written April 1. Manopoli is on leave outside Vietnam &*! was not available for comment. Manopoli's office had forwarded to Loan several reports from U.S. advisers in the field with evidence of corruption or gross incompetence on the part of police officials, sources said. One of the reports concerned Lu Van Vinn, police chief of Vung Tau, a seaside resort southeast of Saigon and a major recreation area for U.S. soldiers. The mayor of Vung Tau wa.s recently removed for corruption, aad the U.S. report sent Loan charged that Vinh had condoned kickbacks, bribes, illegal licensing, gamljJuig a;rJ prostitution. The report asked that he be removed, When Vinh was not fired, his U.S. adviser was called back to Saigon, aad all financial and material aid to the Vung Tau police was cut off.
