,,-Mflidtf, M^ 13,1968 fulbright Bills tor \, Party Unity II LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Sen, ;|, William Fulbright, assuming :jiis role as an Arkansas Demo* ierat, lashed out at Republican $ov, Wlnthrop Rockefeller and iinade a bid for party unity here s&turday, : ' Fulbright, who is seeking rejection, told delegates at the $inual convention of the Arkan* cjas Democratic Women's Club that the party suffered a "dis* aster" with the election of Rockefeller in 1966. "We have made some mistakes, of course," Fulbright said, "but there is one thing about Democrats and that is we won't go backward. Now it is high time we reassess our selves and put Arkansas back to victory in November." : Noting his primary challeng- Srs, the senator singled out Jim Johnson without naming him. 'He reminded the 300 delegates that Johnson had supported Republican Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in 1964 and was supporting the third party candidacy this year of George Wallace. "Despite what some people say, I did not support Goldwater In 1964 or Rockefeller in 1966, and I will not support Richard Nixon or George Wallace in 1968," Fulbright said. The theme of the convention was "Victory in November" and Chairman Barbara O'Dell of North Little Rock read a list of "have-we-had-enough" critiques of the Rockefeller administration. Miss O'Dell was critical of Rockefeller for bringing in out- of-staters for state jobs and accused him of going to New York for haircuts. But the center of attention was Fulbright, who took time from his party unity pitch to assess the Vietnam war and peace talks between the United States and North Vietnam in Paris. The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said there was reason to believe the Paris conference would be successful. "All of us certainly should pray that it will bring about a cease fire as a normal first step," he said. Fulbright said much of the civil and student unrest in the ESD Operations Discussed HOP!

"So, thefirstorderofbusiness for the Democrats is to get the war stopped, to stop the killing of our young men and to stop the diversion of our attention and energies that are now directed to a poor country 10,000 miles away and to concentrate our money and our minds upon our own problems," he said.

Holt photo with Star camera Humphrey Backers Claim 7 Conventions WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey's backers are claiming seven state convention victories in a row in his bid to pick up enough delegate votes for the Democratic presidential nomination. They said today Humphrey has a minimum of 169 pledged delegates after victories in Arizona, Alaska, Maryland, Delaware, Nevada, Wyoming—and Hawaii where party officials say he got at least 20 of 26 delegates elected Sunday night. Humphrey's chief lieutenants —Sens. Walter F. Mondale and Fred Harris—had said earlier they think they have 1,100 of the 1,312 delegate votes needed for nomination at the Democratic National Convention. The 1,100 figure was an estimate of delegates the backers think would vote for Humphrey, not delegates pledged by state party organizations. The vice president also is expected to gain delegates Tuesday in the Nebraska primary where-he-has strong support among delegate candidates whose names are best known in the state. But the major focus in Nebraska will be on the race between Democratic presidential rival Sens. Robert F. Kennedy and Eugene J. McCarthy, the only major announced Democratic candidates on the ballot. McCarthy said after Indiana's primary last week that Nebraska would offer the face-to-face contest Indiana did not because of the favorite-son candidacy of Gov. Roger D. Branigin, Nebraska Gov. Norbert T. Tiemann, a Republican, said he thinks Humphrey will get a substantial write-in vote. Tiemann also said he expects Republican presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon to get 70 per cent of the vote. Rival New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's supporters are seeking write-in votes and California Gov. Ronald Reagan, a favorite-son candidate, will be on the ballot. The Nebraska primary lu'gh- lights a week of political activity in wliich six states will name 95 delegates to the Democratic convention and 56 to the Republican convention. Aside from primaries in Nebraska and West Virginia, Republican delegates will be selected by party organizations in Rhode Island, Vermont and Louisiana and Democratic delegates will be selected in Maine. The West Virginia primary— in sharp contrast to the 1960bat- tle between Humphrey and John F. Kennedy—will have no presidential preference race Tuesday. In other political ddvelopmeats: — Both Rockefeller and Nixon lead all three Democratic presidential candidates, according to a Gallup Poll released over the weekend. It showed Rockefeller leading the Democrats by wider ma reins than Nixon. - Rockefeller's advisor Leonard Hull reportedly urged governors attending a Western Re» publican Governors session in Honolulu to withhold first con- vontion ballot support from Nixun.

The pro- Castro Uses War to Keep Popularity By JOHN CLARK Cleveland Plain Dealer Writer CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) As far as the masses are concerned, Fidel Castro's popular!- ••. ty "has been sustained by his opposition to our policy in Vietnam," Cyrus S. Eaton, 84-year- •• old Cleveland financier, said after a visit with the Cuban premier last week. Vietnam and the abortive Bay of Pigs invasion have been used in Castro's propaganda to solidify his support with the Cuban masses, Eaton told the Plain Dealer in an interview at hia Acadia Farms in nearby Northfield. Eaton said Castro "points to Vietnam as an example of what to expect from America towards a small nation that goes Communist." In five "very crowded days" in Cuba, Eaton said, he saw children rush to shake Castro's hand and volunteer coffee tree planters applauding from trucks and buses when they sighted the bearded leader in a jeep with his Cleveland guest. Eaton spent part of two days with Castro. Castro, Eaton claimed, "Is the complete boss of Cuba. He is a bold and clever man and he has had some phenomenal breaks, such as the Bay of Pigs and Vietnam. He is also, in my opinion, the most energetic and strenuous statesman in the world." Eaton's dedication to coexistence between communism and capitalism has made him welcome behind the Iron Curtain and earned the apparent confidence of Soviet leaders. His trip last week to Cuba was his first there since 1958, two years before the Castro-led revolution. He flew in a Cuban airliner from Mexico on the outward trip and returned via Nassau on Cuban and British airliners. Long a breeder of ribbon-winning beef cattle at his Northfield farms, Eaton wanted to assess agricultural progress in Cuba. His visit was primarily for this purpose, He reported Cuba is conducting massive artificial insemination of cattle, using a prize Canadian bull valued at $100,000. Other breeding experiments include attempts to produce sheep providing more mutton. Cuba is getting more and more material help from U.S. allies, Eaton said. During his visit he lad conversations with the ambassadors of Canada Great Britain, France and Switzerland. "These countries have sent some of their finest diplomatic personnel to Cuba and -although I cannot reveal what they said-1 know they are impressed with Cuba's progress," Eaton continued, Dr. Don Freel was a guest at the meeting and made an appeal for support of the Blood Bank when the Bloodmobile is in Hope Monday, May 13 and Tuesday May 14 at the Vo-Tech School. Clyde Fouse presided and wel- members, guests, and it removed. Kennedy has pulled the larger crowds, and is rated a likely Nebraska winner by most Democratic politicians and surveys. But the senator is trying to dampen such talk. He scoffs at surveys indicating he will take over half the Democratic vote. "How can I get 50 per cent with four of us in the race?" He asked Sunday as his campaign plane flew over vention Saturday, The preferential primary is not binding on the delegates who will be elected Tuesday to cast 28 Nebraska votes at the convention.
