Poor March Leaders Strategy By AUSTIN SCOTT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Eager volunteers working late into the night helped the Poor People's Campaign more than double the size of its "Resurrection City, U.S.A." over the weekend, setting the stage for possible major demonstrations early this week. With more than half the projected 3,000 residents now housed in their West Potomac Park quarters, the Southern Christian Leadership Confer ence has for the first time a sizeable nucleus of demonstrators on which to draw. The Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, SCLC president, is to huddle with his staff today for a strategy meeting that could well last until nightfall. Exactly when and where to demonstrate is one of the topics on their agenda. Only sudden rain squalls prevented organization of a previously announced march around the Capitol Sunday afternoon, said the Rev. Andrew Young, executive vice president of SCLC. The 36-year-old minister told newsmen he felt the week-old campaign is doing "extremely well" so far, "stirring the conscience of America.. .America is talking about poverty as never before." Negro and white volunteers had pushed construction of the tent-shaped plywood huts that make up most of the city about half-way down the mile-long stretch from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument by Sunday night. Neither a searingly hot morn- Ing sun nor the afternoon's blustery rains kept busloads of new arrivals from pouring into the shanty city with their battered suitcases, bedrolls and blankets, Most had been part of two large groups, the 1,000-man Midwestern caravan which arrived Saturday night and was housed in the District of Columbia Coliseum, and the 825-man Northeastern caravan housed for two days in suburban Maryland churches. Many campaigners had to slog their way through thick mud left by a series of afternoon downpours. But the high spirits of most appeared undamaged. The last major contingent due until Thursday, 400 persons who left Mississippi two weeks ago, arrived late Sunday night and settled down in the capital's Northern Virginia suburbs to await space in "Resurrection City." A spokesman said the campaigners were put up in 15 churches after covering the last 00 miles from Richmond, Va.,in Produce Specials Oranges LB. FRESH Tomatoes 29C NEW CROP WHITE ~ .

Several campaign contingents are still on the road from the Midwest, and officials expect a total of 5,000 once everyone has arrived by the May 24 Printed By Offset Wants Quicker Action on Constitution LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Ray* mond Rebsamsrt of Little Rock, chairman of Arkansans for a Revised Constitution, said Sunday that many voters will have forgotten the major issues of a new constitution if the vote on a new document is delayed until 1970. Voters will decide in November whether to call a constitutional convention. If the convention is approved the vote on a new constitution, if one is pro* posed, would be in 1970. Rebsamen's organization fav* ors a vote on the constitution in 1969, "The voters of Arkansas should decide on a new constitu* tion at a time when the issues are fresh on their minds," Rebsamen said.
