Democrats Have 'Forfeited1 Right To Govern, Parker Says COLUMBIA (AP) - Marshall Parker thinks a better organized campaign by him and public exasperation with Democrats in the White House and Congress will land him South Carolina's junior U.S. Senate seat next November. In announcing his candidacy for the Republican Senate nomi nation Wednesday, Parker said the Democrats have "forfeited" their right to govern by forfeit ure of their "credibility" at home and abroad. "In seven years of political power," said Parker at a news conference, "the Democrats have sown the seeds of discord among our people, and we are reaping a harvest of lawless ness, riots and insurrections." Parker is seeking the Senate seat he lost to Democratic Jen. Ernest F. Hollings in a close race two years ago. This year's election is for a full, six-year term. The 1966 election was ne cessitated by the mid-term death of Democratic Sen. Olin D. Johnston If nommated at the state GOP convention on March 30, Parker would face the winner of the Democratic primary In the general election. Hollings has not announced his candidacy as yet, but is expected to do so soon. Should he run in the primary, he will be opposed by John Bolt Culbert- son, a Greenville lawyer and outspoken civil rights advocate. Parker told newsmen Wednes day his campaign is more organized at this point than it was at the same point two years ago. He presented a three-man campaign staff which is prepared to go to work immediately. "Last time we didn't have a campaign manager until August," he remarked. Announced as 1968 campaign managers for Parker were Fred Buzhardt of McCormick and Henry Chandler of Columbia. Both are former aides .to South Carolina's senior U.S. senator, Republican Strom Thurmond. Crawford Clarkson, Columbia accountant, will serve as Parker's finance chairman. In a prepared statement read at his news conference, Parker was highly critical of the Democratic administration's handling of the Vietnam war.

Nixon, his principal rival in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary campaign, to escalate is to win. Nixon, meanwhile, took a brief respite from the New Hampshire grind to visit Boston for a Lincoln Day speech. Asked at a news conference if as a confirmed believer in esca-he would approve use of nuclear lation as the best policy for vic tory in Vietnam. The Michigan governor charged Thursday that Nixon is a "me too" candidate who ac cepts "the Johnson thesis" that STATE NOW PLAYING COLUMBIA PICTURES Promts SIDNEY POITIER Shows 3:15-5:10 7:05-9 yv JJUIKCUVRIS PRODUCTION Or "TO S1L1.1TJBTC3 WSIV 1&& -mrmA m. weapons to keep the Comma nists from taking the Marine outpost of Khe Sanh in Vietnam, he said this seemed neither nec essary nor advisable. But a general, he said, "has to take the position that he can not rule out the use of weapons in extreme situations that might develop." On the Democratic side, Sen, Eugene J. McCarthy began his court fight for equal television time to match President John son's Dec. 19 interview with a trio of network newsmen. Nixon said use of nuclear weapons in Vietnam "could be dangerously escalatory in its ef fect." The former vice president said peaceful progress in Viet nam must "be pressed with a sense of compelling urgency." But Romney insisted in OPEN TONIGHT TILL 9 PM D Manchester. N. H.: "Nixon has no peace program. He's glib' and he talks well." Romney said Nixon endorses a policy ot escaiauon under which napalm is used on civilians in an indiscriminate show of military power. "The military path is a false path," he told college students in a movie theater, "because we're going to be matched on that path. "We keep following this futile Johnson-Nixon policy and that's what it is a Johnson-Nixon policy of more and more mil itary escalation." McCarthy's battle for equal television time was in the U.S. Court of Appeals. His attorney, Joseph Rauh, said he can prove President Johnson is an active candidate for re-election personally directing primary campaigns in New Hampshire and Wisconsin. McCarthy is appealing a Federal Communications Commission ruling against his request for equal time on grounds John son Is not a declared candidate.
