Wallace of Alabama jarred the national Democratic parly again today with a declaration of independence in his home state and an impressive but second best vote in the Indiana presidential primary. Wallace nearly duplicated his Wisconsin primary showing of la.st month by racking up nearly 175.000 votes, almost half the total received by Indiana Gov. JIatthew E. Welsh, who ran in behalf of President Johnson. The Alabama governor polled about 19 per cent of more than 900.000 votes cast for president in both parties. Five unhcrald cd candidates, three Democrats and two P.cpubUcans, received about 50,009 votes between them. .As expected. Sen. Barry Goldwatcr of Arizona easily do feated Harold E. Stassen in the Indiana Repubhcan presidential primary. By adding Indiana's 32 national convention votes on the first ballot, Goldwatcr's headquarters claimed 264 of the 655 votes needed to win the presidential nomination. Party primaries to nominate candidates for various offices were held Tuesday in Alabama, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Oklahoma, New JIe.\ico and the District of Columbia. Echoes of the national debate on civil rights were heard in contests in Ohio and Florida as well as in .Mabama and Indiana. Wallace made himself the symbol of opposition to the Jolinson administration's civil rights program. j GOV. GEORGE C. WALLACE In the Alabama primary, a Wallace-backed slate of un­ pledged presidential electors won a runaway victory over a slate pledged to support the nominee of the national Democratic party. Thus Alabama's 10 electoral voles can be withheld from President Johnson after the election next November. In the Indiana primary. Gov. Matthew Welsh ran as a favorite son candidate and stand-in for John.son to defeat the segregationist Wallace. In other major contests: Ohio: Rep. Robert Taft Jr. won the Republican nomination for a scat in the Senate, where his father was once a dominant figure. Sen. Stephen M. Young was renominated in the Democratic primary but Lt. Col. John H. Glenn Jr., the astronaut who withdrew because of an injury, polled a sizable vote. Oklahoma: Bud Wilkinson, former Oklahoma football coach, easily won the Republican senatorial nomination. Sen. J. Howard Edmondson was in a three-way fight with former Gov. Raymond Gary and state Sen. Fred Harris for the Democratic nomination and a runoff contest between the two leaders was indicated. Florida: Sen. Spcssard L. McNamara to go to West Germany WASHINGTON (UPI) -President Johnson announced today that he is sending Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara to West Germany for talks and then on to South Viet Nam to review the war effort there. Johnson told his news confer ence that McNamara will leave Friday for talks in West Germany with West German Defense Minister Kai-Uwe von Hassel. He said the sessions would concern "matters of mutual defense interest." He said these would include cooperative research and development, existing cooperative iprograms for military logistics. Holland easily won the Democratic nomination for a fourth term. JIayor Haydon Bums of Jacksonville led in the contest for the nomination for governor but faced a runoff Jlay 26 against Mayor Robert King High of Miami, the only candidate among six in the Democratic primary to endorse the civil rights bill in Congress. New Mexico: Rep. Joseph M. Montoya was nominated without opposition in the Demo and the program for West Ger man purchases of U. S. military equipment to offset the balance of payments drain represented by U. S. expenses in West Germany. Johnson said McNamara would proceed from Bonn to Saigon, South Viet Nam, for a "first hand look" at militarj' and political developments since -McNamara's last visit there in March.

In other highlights of his news conference, the President: — Announced creation of a maritime advisory committee to (Continued on Page 5) Johnson assails Senate Civil Rights opponents WASHINGTON (UPD-Presi- dent Johnson today assailed opponents of tne Senate civil rights bill who claim the legislation is only a pohtical gimmick. Johnson said those who make this claim "are doing a gross injustice to the basic convictions of a democratic society." The President made the remarks in an address prepared for delivery before the annual meeting here of the influential Advertising Council. The speech started a heavy day for the President, including a 4:30 p.m. EOT, open-air. televised news conference at the White House. Johnson told the advertising council, which last year donat­ ed more than SlOO million to public service advertising, that the most dangerous threat to America is public apathy. Says Economy Healthy Stressing the health of the nation's economy, the Chief Ex ecutive said that "almost every day brings more good news about the economy, and many people have been surprised by what this free enterprise system is doing. " "I am concerned, however, with some other aspects of America today," the President said. It was in discussing various phases of the economic picture that he mentioned t h e civil rights bill. Johnson said he did not want .Americans to "retreat from their responsibilities." He said that if citizens bum their energy "on irrelevant and trivial causes—on purposes that serve only their own narrov/ interests —democracy will inevitably suffer." For that reason, he urged the Advertising Council members to devote them.s.elves this year "as private citizens to specific programs which will raise the quality of life in .America." "The war on poverty is going to succeed, for example, only if people like you are in the front lines, Johnson said. "There is hardly a community in this country where poverty does not have some beachhead, and the hardest battles are going to be fought right in your horns town." The poverty attack, he said, is "a moral challenge that goes to the very root of our civiliza- ton and asks if we are willing to make personal sacrifices for the public good." "I can say the same thing about the civil rights legislafion now before the Congress." Johnson said. "Those who say this is a 'polifical gimmick' are doing a gross injustice to the basic convictions of a democratic society: That men cannot live unto themselves alone; that the right kind of democracy is bound together by the ties of neighborliness." National Guard patrols tornado battered towns Firemen issue stirs new strike threat W.ASHINGTON (UPI) — The president of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and En- ginemcn (BLFE) accused the nation's railroads today of deliberately misinterpreting a federal arbitration award in elira inating firemen from diesel locomotives.

Boston Chicago Cincinnati Denver Fairbanks Fort Worth Helena Honolulu Kansas City Las Vegas Los Angeles Minneapolis New York Sacramento Salt Lake City San Francisco Seattle Washington D.AVIS (UPI) - Dr. Clark Kerr, president of the Univer^ sity of California, said Tuesday suggestions to cxpcll students arrested for illegal participation in civil rights demonstratnios were "both impractical and improper." Assemblyman Don Mulford, R-Piedmont, made the suggestion last month and later criticized Kerr for refusing to act. In a Charter Day address here Kerr said the University had no intention of complying with Mulfrod's rcqueesl. He noted that the University of California had an enrollment of more than 60,000 students on seven campuses and "cannot possibly maintain surveillance over their off-campus actions." He added that also there was a matter of a basic principal in the American judicial system— that a person cannot be tried twice or punished twice for the same offense. He said this would be the case if students were penalized by both a court and the university. "The university can no more act as though it were the state, than the state can act as though it were the university," he said. 57 42 S3 68 84 57 70 47 45 33 77 69 .14 57 38 Si 72 78 68 .12 67 — 59 50 .01 79 62 .44 72 49 57 42 .03 47 33 .65 52 46 ?,?, 41 .09 75 50 Bud Wilkinson wins November 'bowl' berth OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI) — Former Oklahoma Football Coach Bud Wilkinson, in his first political venture, won November "bowl" berth against one of three Democrats Tuesday with the Republican nomination lo the U.S. Senate.
