, JUNE 28, 1968 ALTON EVENING Yachts Slowly Cross Line At Newport NEWPORT, R.l. (AP) - After nearly four weeks at sea, the single-handed ocean racers are trickling across the finish line off Newport 3,000 miles frofti the start at Plymouth, Engladn. The first two finishers came in Thursday. The 57-foot Sir Thomas Upton was the first to finish early in the morning, and the SO-foot Voortrekker came In Thursday night. Both are ketches. Both skippers, Geoffrey Williams of England and Bruce Bailing of South Africa, reported they had rough passages, especially the first two weeks out of England, when storms with winds up to 60 miles an hour drove across their courses. There were 48 ocean racers at the start, but by today eight were known to have dropped out because of damages to hulls or spars in the storms. One boat sank. The Sir Thomas Lipton was declared overall winner of the race, subject to any possible protests. When other boats are in, a winner on corrected time will be declared. Williams' elapsed time for the passage was 26 days, 20 hours and 29 minutes. The Voortrek- ker came in 17 hours and three minutes later. Rosewall Has Tough Time WithPasareU WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — If anyone is to stop Ken Rosewall from winning Wimbledon, he's got to do it by scoring points quickly. Ask Charlie Pasarell, top- ranked U.S. amateur who came near to toppling the great Australian in the second round Thursday. "Unless you score the points quickly, you don't win it at all," the husky star from Santurce, Puerto Rico said. "Once a rally gets going, he gets better and better with each stroke and eventually he puts one right through you." Pasarett's booming service- one of the most powerful in the world—brought him close to glory on the center court. Finally Rosewall, after trailing 0-2 in the final set, won 7-9, 6-1, 6-8, 62, 6-3. After four days of intermittent rain, the organizers are some 140 matches behind schedule. But they've finished all the first round of the men's singles and all but seven of the second round. Rod Laver moved into the third round Thursday with a hard-won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory over No. 7 seeded Stan Smith of Los Angeles, Calif. Laver, who eliminated Eugene Scott of St. James, N.Y., in the first round, next faces another American- Marty Riessen, Davis Cup star from Evanston, 111. Two Americans Might Tangle WALTON HEATH, England (AP) — Two American girls from the same state, born and reared only a few miles apart, eyed each other with care and caution today. Both are getting close to the British Women's Golf championship, and only one of them can win. The quarter finals of the 1968 British title play over Walton Heath's 6,242-yard, par-75 course have so worked out that the three American survivors all are in the top bracket of the . draw. Two of them must face the is sue before the day is out. They are Peggy Conley, 21, of Spokane, Wash., and Anne Welts, 31, of Mount Vernon, Wash. Miss Conley took on England's Mary Everard this morn ing, and Mrs. Welts was matched against Scotland's high-class player Belle Robertson. If both Americans win, they must tackle each other in the afternoon to reach Saturday morning's semifinals.

"I wouldn't want to take the Supreme Court out of controversy." But he said some attacks on the court have been "outlandish." —Critics of the Warren Commission investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have failed to develop facts "contrary to the findings of the commission." —Controversial civil rights issues have come to the court; the court has not deliberately sought them out. New Regulations On Storing Meat In Effect Monday By DAVID L. ANDERSON Associated Press Writer SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)The Illinois Agriculture Department's new regulations which go nto effect Monday will prohibit armers from storing or proces- ing home-slaughtered meat for tieir own consumption in retail licensed locker pJants. Dr. Paul B. Doby, superin- endent of the Livestock and In- iustry Division, said the regu- ations will force all state regulated locker plants to become me of two types. A "Type I" retail locker plant ould not process or store meat unless it bears an official state >r federal inspection mark or unless meat is properly ivrapped before it is brought in. Thus it could not, Doby said, handle unwrapped meat slaugh- cred by a farmer or an itinerant butcher. The purpose of he regulations, he said, is to >revent cross contamination be- ween inspected and uninspect- d meat. The Type II locker plant could not sell meat. The Type II operator may, however, process and store meat for a producer previded hat only the producer or his mmediate family consumes the meat. Establishments licensed under the "Wild Game Act" will be required to dress carcasses before bringing them into processing or refrigerating areas. . Wild game carcasses will have to be stored in holding cages of a type approved by plant operator will have to make written request to the Ag< riculture Department for listings of the times and days wild game may be processed. "Most," Doby said, "will have to make a decision for either Type I or Type II operations." In order for an operator to run both types under the same roof he will need duplicate equipment and total separation of processes, Doby added. "The department assumes most of the plants will become Type I because Type II is more restrictive," he said. Doby said he hopes the regulations will help the department control the activities oi the estimated 90 unlicensed and unregistered itinerant butchers in the state. If violations of the regulations are found, owners of offending plants will risk having the department condemn the offending carcasses, he said. Doby said the new regulations were written to help bring the state into line with recently passed Federal Wholesale Meat Act. Demos to Name 70 More Delegates SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)Illinois Democrats meet in state convention today to name 70 additional national convention delegates and follow a wait-and-see attitude in the presidential race. The session also serves as a campaign rallying forum with speech by Gov. Samuel H. Shapiro and other statewide candidates. Because Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago has not revealed his preference, most of the 70 at-large delegates are expected to stay uncommitted, Two of the selections, Jacob M. Arvey and Miss Dorothy O'Brien, are automatic as they are Illinois members of, the na tional committee. Others in the at-large group are prominent in the party. James A. Ronan, state party chairman, said the full U8< member Illinois delegation probably won't go on record for president until it caucuses their day before tbe national conven tion begins in Chicago Aug. 26. Tbe general unpledged status prompted backers ol Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota to Belafonte's Tirade Sheds Little Light on Racial Trouble in UiS By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - ABC's six special programs examining 'acism began Thursday night with an hour ealled "Bias and the Mass Media." It turned out to be mostly a bitter monologue by Harry Belafonte blaming the white community for all the troubles in this troubled land, and no one on the program gave him any argument.

"I earned to accept criticism as ivell as praise..." Warren was interviewed by reporters for radio station 5FBK and television station £OVR during .a brief visit Thursday to Sacramento, where Warren served 10 years as the state's Republican governor be- 'ore being appointed chief jus- ice by President Eisenhower. Warren rejected the argument of some court critics that it has njected itself into civil rights controversies. "There are a great many people who are of the opinion that if he Supreme Court doesn't like something, it just reaches out and takes the issue and brings it :o the Supreme Court. "Weli, that's the farthest ;hing from the truth. Every case that we have starts in a rial court or the state courts. The case progresses through until eventually it comes to us. "When it does come to us, it's usually of a very controversial nature and our decision therefore becomes controversial aecause.. .somebody has to win and somebody has to lose." In earlier days, Warren said, "the question was whether the U.S. government had enough authority under the Constitution ;o survive. There wasn't any ;hought given to the Bill of Rights. Those issues hadn't arisen. There weren't any movements of that kind." 6:00-2 4 6:30—2 Man in A Suitcase (C) (R) 4 Wild, Wild West (C) (R) 5 Tarzan (C) (R) 11 Truth Or Consequences (C) 7:00—11 Passport (C) 7:30—2 SPECIAL: 8th Annual Coaches All-American Foot - ball (C) ' 4 Corner Pyle (C) (R) 5 Star Trek (C) (R) 11 Of.

LEUBSDORF Associated Press Writer BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey denied today that he is a "status quo" candidate and pledged a vigorous presidency dedicated to "the achievement of both social order and social justice." "I do not seek the presidency to preserve anybody's status quo," Humphrey said, responding to the contention by supporters of Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy that the vice president's support from old-line Democratic politi cians reflects a dedication to the so-called "old politics." "I seek the presidency to put it to work for the people—and work I will," Humphrey said in a speech prepared for the North Dakota Democratic Convention. A late schedule change gave Humphrey the chance to get in last licks with McCarthy due to speak to the convention some three hours earlier. A poll of delegates, for the information of the convention's committee to select the state's 25 representatives to the party's national con- venion, takes place after the two candidates speak. Most Democratic party leaders in the state, led by three- term Gov. William L. Guy, are backing Humphrey and he is expected to win a majority of the delegates. The vice president flies here in late morning from Minneapolis after a day of meetings and relaxation at his Waverly, Minn., home. He then goes on to Democratic conventions Saturday in Oklahoma and Iowa. Humphrey's speech here was cqmposed mainly of a variety of pledges, designed to fire the party faithful, for such things as tax rform, extension of medical benefits, feeding the poor and revitalizing rural America. It also contained a couple of slaps at McCarthy and the Re- )Ublican record during the pres- dency of Dwight D. Eisenhower. "I do not seek the presidency to let its powers lie useless," Humphrey said, a contrast to his view of the need for an ac tive presidency with McCarthy's announced intention of decen tralizing some presidential pow ers. And he said the peace he seeks is not "the peace of silence, or the peace of emptiness or the peace of just not doing anything for eight years. "We had enough of that in the 1950s," he said. Saying there is a need "to assure the homeowner and landowner that he will not be crushed by higher and higher jroperty and state and national ;axes," he said, "one of the ma- or projects in a new Humphrey administration will be a complete study of the nation's tax aws, with the intent of achiev- ng greater equity in the taxes which each citizen pays." Only Personal Doctor to Say You're Dead SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Only a personal physician, not a member of a heart transplant team, could declare a pa- ient dead under a bill passed by the California Senate Thursday and sent to the Assembly.

An alumni committee recommended Kenny Williamson of Peoria, Mrs. Frances Best Watkins of Chicago and Timothy R. Ives of Bloomington. Republicans at their state convention Saturday are expected to increase the Illinois strength of Richard M. Nixon with the naming of 10 aWarge delegates. Only a few of them are publicly neutral and they are regarded as leaning to Nixon. The GOP group will be head ed by Sens. Everett M. Dirksen and Charles H. Percy, state chairman Victor L.
