(AP) - The appeal to Voters of the Kennedy name** and a drawing account on the millions behind It—have helped speed Sen. Robert F. Kennedy further along the road toward the Democratic presl* dential nomination. The Kennedy organization si* deswlped Sen, Eugene J. McCarthy, D«Mlnn,, In Nebraska's primary Tuesday, sending the first-out opponent of President Johnson's policies bumping to the brink of disaster, McCarthy's casual acceptance of the short end of a 53-31 percentage of the Democratic vote did little to support his optimistic post-balloting prediction that he will run even with Kennedy in the May 28 Oregon primary and may win the June 4 California test. The truth of the matter, as most politicians see it, is that McCarthy Is now a poor third In the Democratic race. It would take a brace of victories to boost him back into a top running position. Kennedy said as much by naming Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey as his chief target in future campaigning and inviting McCarthy to join him in combatting Humphrey as the apostle of what Kennedy calls the Johnson administration's unsatisfactory policies. Kennedy demonstrated in just about every category of Nebraska voter—city dwellers, farm voters, blue collar workers. Negroes and ethnic groups— the immense appeal he can project. But his victory was not left to chance. It was wrapped up and delivered in an Intensive and expensive campaign that followed the pattern he laid down in Indiana.

(AP) - Retired Rear Adm. Husband E. Kimmel, 86, commander of the U.S. Pacific fleet when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec, 7, 1941, died Tuesday, apparently of a heart attack. Kimmel used much of his time since 1941 answering charges that he was to blame for the ease with which the Japanese dealt America its worst naval defeat. He said he had been made a scapegoat for the disaster by Washington officials. WASHINGTON (AP) Alfred T. Newberry Sr., 65, Associated Press correspondent in Baltimore in the late 1920s, died Sunday. He later worked for International News Service. Newberry retired in 1955 from a job with the General Services Administration. PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. (AP) — Joseph C.

By LOUIS NEVIN Associated Press Writer PARIS (AP) - While rebellious students carried on their sit-ins at most of France's 18 universities. Premier Georges Pompidou charged Tuesday night that the rebellion was part of a widespread International plot. But he offered the students more concessions. Pompidou told the National Assembly the student uprising against French educational policies "involved individuals backed by important financial means with materiel adapted to street fighting, apparently belonging to an international organization." "I do not think lam straying in thinking they are aiming at not only creating subversion in Western countries," he added, "but at causing trouble in Paris even at the moment when our capital has become the meeting place for peace in the Far East." It was assumed that Peking was his target, since the Chinese are the only Coomunist force who have expressed opposition to the talks between the United States and North Vietnam that opened In Paris Monday. The premier admitted there are basic causes for the student unrest, particularly a lack of jobs for liberal arts graduates. He said he would form a "committee for reflection," made up of representative professors, students, parents and others to "propose, If not solutions, at least experiments." He also offered the possibility of greater autonomy for the Individual universities and modification of the government bureaucracy's tight control. Wednesday, May 15, 1968 KENNEDY (from page one) gallon posts. With 1,844 of the 2,133 pre* cincts counted, this was the vote in the Democratic popularity poll, which is not binding on delegates: Kennedy 70,045 or 53 per cent; McCarthy 41,671 or 31 per cent; Humphrey write-ins 11,765 or 9 per cent; Johnson 7,531 for 6per cent. Johnson's rejection of candl« dacy came too late for his name to be taken off the ballot. ; In the Republican count, with 1,851 precincts counted, thls'was the situation: Nixort 114,834 or 70 per cent; Reagan 35,766 or 22 per cent, write-in votes for New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, 9,214 or 6 per cent. : Reagan's name was on • the ballot, which automatically lists all potential nominees who do not file denials of candidacy, Rockefeller is a candidate for the nomination, but is not entering any primaries. : Nixon said Reagan had made a good showing in Nebraska, but added that was to be expected because there had been a campaign for the absent Callfor- nian. Former Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace had scattered write-In votes on the Democratic and Republican ballots —and all the votes in a miniature primary staged by his American Independent party. Wallace is waging a third party campaign for the presidency. He got one per cent of the Democratic vote, a smaller share on the Republican ballot. JESUS THE SAVED GO TO HEAVEN, THE LOST GO TO HELL.
