A team of volunteer doctors who had been treating minor injuries in the 12th 'Precinct jail rushed to the injured soldier, applied heart massage and :saved his life, • "We started this committee in 1964 to provide emergency medical care at tlmos and in places where ordinary medical care is, at best, inadequate and, at worst, nonexistent," said Dr. ..George Wilson, national president of the committee, in an interview from Philadelphia where he teaches at Temple University. "Doctors and nurses responded to pleas from Selma, Ala., that year, pleas Irom organizations working on voter registra- ; tion. "When it was over, we found that we weren't satisfied with just stitching up cut heads. We decided we should be doing something to keep heads intact In the first place." In 1965, the Medical Com: imittee for Human Rights be: came a full-fledged national organization, incorporated in New York City. It claims a national membership of 4,000. Since then, its members have found themselves ministering to the Sick m injured in Bogalusa, La.; marching with James Meredith down U.S. 51 in June, 1966 and in the midst of the Chicago, Detroit and Washington civil upheavals. They have lobbied on Capitol Hill for strong medicare and Social Security laws; worked with the Office of Economic Opportunity to provide improved medical care for children In the Head Start program and studied the health problems of city jails. Some members of the committee are fond of saying their organization represents the medical arm of the civil rights movement. Wilson does not agree. "It started that way," he said, "but the old civil rights movement died with' the concept of successful nonviolence on the Meredith march, and at that point we expanded our aims to take on national goals and national programs concerned with all sorts of human activities— particularly the correction of the inadequacy of health and medical care to all the poor— the Negro, the Mexican American, the poor white man," For that reason, the Washington branch of the committee has, for weeks, been stockpiling drugs—the bulk donated by 19 drug companies, one drug store chain and the District of Columbia Health Department—for availability when the Poor People's Campaign gets to town, When the campaign is over the committee expects to go back to putting pressure on Con* grejg to try and solve the medical problems of the poor. "We have and will continue to testify on health and medical is* sues in Congress and advise when we're asked on the draft* tog ot new legislation," Wilson 8y PHIl PASTORIT Thinking of something to give the boss for his birthday can provide one with hours of satisfying contemplation. « «• « Nostalgia is the feeling Inys never were. « « t Those who thinic burnt of- went out of style with MCCARTHY THE MAN remains an enigma to many even after months of national exposure.

Nelson A, Rockefeller's top advisers is talking privately to Western Republican governors here, seeking to stop Richard M, Nixon from staking a claim in the West in his race for the GOP presidential no ml- nation. Leonard Hall, former Republican national chairman, conferred with California Gov, Ronald Reagan- himself a potential nominee- and others of the 11 Republican chief executives at the Western Governors Conference, "Just social calls," said Hall, who roamed through the convention hotel on the beach at Waikiki dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, the uniform o! this meet- Ing. Thirteen state chief executives and the governors of American Samoa and Guam began four days of meetings on such Western problems as resources, transportation, eco« nomic development, land man- agment and water. As usual, however, gubernatorial political talks attracted as much attention as the morning and afternoon meetings on state problems, Between meetings, the goyer* Dors relaxed on the beach or saw th* sights of Honolulu, Hajl told a reporter that he ipesn't believe former Vice Present Nixon's support is as solid as bis supporters claim, While Hall said be didn't specifically urge Western governors to refuse to back Nixon, be eaW be believed most would "&ty }oo$e" until just before the convention, rather than sign HOPE (AfiRj STAR, Printed fy Offset Says Kickback Report Is of a shotputter, breaks Interfer* ence through the swarms of youthful admirers who persist in pressing close to touch Ken* nedy's clothing-if they can't reach the undulating hands he runs along the tips of the fingers stretching toward htm, ones Barry lands him in the official car, the security man hangs around Kennedy's middle like a linebacker who has tack* led a running back at the waist" line, The crowd urge to rip off the New Yorker's cufflinks has become such an "in" thing that he now buys disposable ones by the gross. Distorted WASHtMf ON (AP) «. A secret Senate report alleging indi* cations of kickbacks to em* ployes of a U.S. construction firm in South Vietnam has been wrongly denied by the compa* ny's top officer. Edward A. Shay, president of Pacific Architects & Engineers, Inc., said Sunday the report is "distorted, unjustified and unfair," The 75-page document, pre- pared by Sen. Abraham Ribi* coff, D-Conn., after a Southeast Asia tour last December, urges broad congressional investiga* tion of U.S. aid programs in Vietnam and of contracts held by two major contractors. Ribicoff named the firms as RMK«BRJ, a joint venture that includes four companies, and Shay's PAE. The report has been filed with the Senate per* manent investigations subcom* mittee, There was no immediate comment in Saigon from ti.s, aid and RMK.BRJ officials, Shay's prepared reply was released by company officials in Los An* s. Governors to Attend State t LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller's office has announced that four out-of- state governors will definitely attend the regional platform hearing here which starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Governors definitely attending are Dewey F. Bartlett of Oklahoma, Raymond P. Sliafer of Pennsylvania, Norbert T. Tiemann of Nebraska and Harold LeVander of Minnesota. Rockefeller's office also said Monday, May 13,1968 that Govs. George Romney of Michigan, Claude R. Kirk of Florida and Louie Nunn of Ken* tucky may attend. Topic of discussion at the Lit* tie Rock meeting will be education and government spend* ing and economic resources. The National Republican Governors Association has sched* uled a series of platform hear* ings to develop issues that will be presented to the National GOP Convention in Miami Beach. Ilalophytes are plants which can grow in salty soil where most plants die. Examples of halophytes are asparagus and mangrove. up in the Nixon camp. If enough state delegations stay uncommitted, Nixon would be deprived of victory on the first ballot— the aim of Rockefeller supporters. Hall said he wasn't using a "hard sell" on the governors, just renewing old friendships. And he said he would not ask Reagan to join a Rockefeller- Reagan ticket— the so-called "dream ticket" that many of the New Yorker's supporters talk about, Reagan says he will not accept the vice presidential nomination. The Californian also says he is not campaigning for the presidential nomination. Different But Somehow It Seems Same EDITOR'S NOTE-AP political writer Jack Bell, who covered John F. Kennedy's 1960 campaigning, reports the differences and similarities in Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 drive for the Democratic presidential nomination. By JACK BELL AP Political Writer OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Everything is different. But, somehow, everything seems the same. The voice that comes out of the microphone mounted on the campaign sound truck has the same Harvard Yard twang. Often the quick, jerky gestures, the finger stabbing in the air for emphasis, are the same. But the 1968 version of a Kennedy on the campaign trail has many differences from the 1960 Kennedy who established the political mystique of the family name. In its fundamentals, the theme of John F. Kennedy eight years ago was: "Let's get this nation moving." He held aloft the banner of a dream of American greatness, a pattern of movement after what he labeled the drowsy Eisenhower years. Basically, Sen. Robert F, Kennedy is telling the campaign crowds as he crisscrosses the country that there is entirely too much wrong with America. He recites the ills of rioting, the hunger and the malignant idleness in the ghettos, the flaring threat of Inflation, the bloody death toll In Vietnam, These bad, bad things Just cannot be permitted to continue, he says, Yet while he spells out his position on the issues in poll- cy papers, his ultimate solution Is simple: If the voters just elect htm president, he will do something about them, The physical differences in campaigning by the Kennedy of 1960 and the Kennedy of 1968 stand out sharply, John F. Kennedy was always a cool customer, highly approachable in private but a trifle standoffish in his response to public demonstrations. At 6 feet 1 and packing about 185 pounds, he could walk through crowds without being manhandled by admirers, The beaming ladies, young and old, jumped, danced and squealed and tried to touch him as he rode or walked by. It was said of him that he looked like the kind of handsome husband every woman would like to have claimed for her own, With Bob Kennedy it is differ* ent. At 5 feet 9 plus, weighing 165 soaking wot, he can get lost in the $ea of those pressing about him. Tall BUI Barry, an ex-FBI man with the shoulders Last Chance To Get Your Amberstone SAVE 30c!
