TEN TUESDAY, SEPT. 8, 1968 GOP May Feature McCarthy In '54 Senatorial Campaigns By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — Some GOP leaders, convinced the voters generally look with favor on Sen. McCarthy's investigations of communism, intend to feature the Wisconsin He- Dublican in some of next year's senatorial campaigns. The Senate Republican Campaign Committee already has begun to line up ammunition •gainst five Democratic senators it regards as best bets for displacement in the November 1954 elections. They are Senators Frear of Del-i Sea. Coopei (R-Ky) will be bat- aware, Douglas of Illinois, Gillette | tling against what has often ^been of Iowa, Humphrey of Minnesota "~ ' ' " *»••->"• and Murray of Montana. A committee official who didn't want to be identified by name said that if present plans mature, McCarthy will be used in behalf of GOP candidates in some of these states. McCarthy took an active role in the 19*0 senatorial campaign in Maryland, which saw Sen. John M. Butler defeat the veteran Millard B. Tydlngs a Democrat. A Senate elections subcommittee •which investigated unanimously called it a "despicable back street campaign" and criticized tame of McCarthy's tactics. McCarthy himself was re-elected to a six-year term last year. While he won handily, he ran well behind the OOP margins polled in Wisconsin by President Eisenhower and Oov. Walter J. Kohler Jr. McCarthy, disclaiming any knowledge of committee plans, said he probably will make some political speeches next year but has no schedule. The senator told reporters he had received 619 invitations for speeches since the first of the year, and that "many of these invitations came from members of Congress." Sen. Dirksen of Illinois, chair- wan ot tht Senate campaign group, said future plans have not yet jelled. But he left no doubt he regards MCarthy as a definite asset. Dirksen said that at a recent Illinois meeting, the crowd gave Its greatest cheer to his mention of McCarthy's investigations. As the situation stands, the Republicans may go into the campaign outnumbered by the Democrats In the Senate. Not counting Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore), the count would be 48 Democrats and 47 Republicans if Oov. Prank Lausche of Ohio appoints a Democrat to succeed the late Sen. Robert A Taft. But GOP campaign committee officials say they're optimistic about retaining Senate control in next year's election. They regard Kentucky and Michigan as danger areas for them. Commodity And Stock Markets- Hew York Cotton (12:45 quotations) a Democratic trend n Kentucky in nonpresidential years. Cooper was elected last year to fill out the unexpired term of the late Sen. Chapman (D-Ky) when Eisenhower was losing the state by 700 votes, but Democrats are confident of winning back the Senate seat in 1954. Ferguson, who heads the Senate Republican Policy Committee, may face a Democratic challenge from Gov. G. Mennen Williams, who proved his vote-getting ability by winning re-election last year when Michigan was giving Eisenhower a 320.000-vote margin in the presidential race. The Republican committee lists as somewhat less doubtful the outcome of re-election battles of Sen. Dworshak (R-Idaho) and Sen. Saltonstall (R-Mass). Both are expected to face stiff opposition. The Republicans say they don't know how much of a vote-getter Sen. Kuchel. » GOP appointee, will prove in California. Outside of the five Democrats' against whom they plan to wage their most vigorous campaigns, the Republicans havo listed Democratic, Senators Kerr of Oklahoma and Anderson of Now Mexico for attention, with some hope of winning their seats. Pew Republicans here believe there Is much chance of knocking off Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, although his state went for Elsen- hower last year. The GOP strategists privately list Senators Green of Rhode Island, Hunt of Wyoming and Edwin C. Johnson of Colorado as pretty good bets for re-election. They will make a showing against Hunt and against Sen. Neely, West Virginia Democrat, but not with too much optimism. If there is any real Republican effort to displace any of the Southern Democrats, it apparently will have to be generated locally In indivdual states. The GOP strategists here don't go for the idea that they have any valid chance of gaining seats south of the Mason ind Dixon Line.

Yugoslavia denied the charges and countered that the Italian troop movements to the Italian-Yugoslav border constituted "provocations." As the charges and countercharges mounted. U.S. Secretary of State Dulles told a press conference In Washington that president Eisenhower's government has been exploring possible alternatives to the Trieste-for-Italy dec- clnration, which Italy grimly holds ;o be a flat promise. Dulles added that no suitable alternative had been found. Italy's charge d'affaires In Washington, after a hurried conference with the secretary, announced he was "happy to lenrn the American position on Trieste is unchanged." The calming effect of this was offset by Tito's declaration. Before his speech Sunday, Tito had advocated that Italy and Yugoslavia administer Trieste jointly, with details to be worked out between the two governments. Britain and the United States now administer the northern part of the zone, which includes the port. The Trieste territory was Italian before World War II. The Italian Peace Treaty established it as a free zone, with an international government, but the Western Powers have never been able to agree with the Soviets on a governor. Round Trip ENID, OUa.
