Want 'Lights for Ted' Campaign ™"*" REACTION- Continued from Page One calls were reported to "be going pretty strongly pro-Kennedy." Democratic leaders think it is "ridiculous" that Kennedy should resign," said the Eagle's political writer, Abe Michelson. "Rides High" Michelson Said he went to the Western Union office in Berkshire and most of the telegrams he saw being sent were in favor of Kennedy. Michelson said he would have a story under his byline in the paper this morning backing Kennedy. "He still rides very high with the people of Massachusetts." Michelson said. Paul Toomey, a newsman, from WBZ-TV in Boston, said,! "The general reaction is largely j favorable as far as we can tell.".; A spokesman for radio sta- ion WLLH al Lowell reported 1 about 100 calls and said they were running thrce-to-one in Kennedy's favor. At Springfield, an announcer j at station WSPR reported 98j calls supporting Kennedy andj "one questioning why the two! men with Kennedy that night; didn't call the police." "People Gefluflcct" Jim Burke, commentator for, radio station WALE in Fall River, Mass., described the reaction this way: "If a picture, of Ted Kennedy is shown! around here, people genuflect, j "Support is so strong for him that people want to start a 'Lights on for Ted' campaign. They want lo have his supporters turn their auto lights on throughout the day." Forrest Adams, with radio station WBET in Brockton. Mass., said reaction in that area was strongly for Kennedy.

These events, the innuendo,, the whispers which have surrounded them, and my admission of guilt this morning raise the question in my mind of whether my standing among the people of my state has been so impaired that I should resign my seat in the United States Senate. 7 Would Understand* If at any $ime the citizens of Massachusetts should lack confidence in their senator's character or his ability, with or without justification, he could not, in my opinion, adequately perform his duties and should not continue in office. Inspire Confidence The people of this state, the state which sent John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Charles Sumner, Hnery Cabot Lodge, and John Kennedy to the United States Senate are enti Today, as I mentioned, I felt i tied to representation 1 4n that morally obligated to plead guilty to the charge of leaving the scene of an accident. No words on my part can possibly express the terrible pain and suffering I feel over this tragic incident. This last weekend has body by men who inspfte their utmost confidence. For this reason I would understand full well why some might think it right for me to resign. For me this would be a difficult decision to make. It has been been an agonizing one for me, j seven years since my first elec- and for the members of my tion to the Senate. You and I family, and the grief we feel over the loss of a wonderful share many memories, some of them glorious, some have been very sad. The opportunity to work with you and serve Massachusetts has made my life worthwhile. And so I ask you tonight, the people of Massachusetts, to think this through with me in facing this decision. I seek your advice and opinion n making it. I seek your prayers. For this is a decision that I will have to finally make on my own. A Man Does What He Must* It has been written a man does what he must in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles, and dangers and pressures, and that is the basis of all human morality. And whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience, the loss of his friends, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellowmen, each man must decide for himself the course he will follow. The stories of past courage cannot supply courage itself. For this, each man must look into his own soul. I pray that I can have the courage to make the right decision. Whatever is decided/whatever the future holds for me, I hope that I shall be able to put. this most recent tragedy behind me and make some future contribution to our state and mankind whether it be in public or private life. Thank you and good night.

He was given a suspended sentence of two months in jail and a year's probation. If at any time the citizens of Massachusetts lose confidence in a senator's character or ability, he said, the senator should not continue in office. He noted he has been in the Senate some seven years and that he shares happy and sad memories with his constituents, i "And so I ask you tonight toj think this through with me," he said, asking for advice and prayers for his decision. But he said he will finally have to make the decision on his own. Each man must decide for himself the course he must follow, he said. Each "man must look into his own soul for courage, he went on, and .said he prays for courage to make the right decision. "Some Contribution" "Whatever the future holds for me," Kennedy said, he lopes he can "make some fur- t h e r contribution to our state. . .whether it be in public or private life." In discussing the 10-hour gap between the accident on Chap- )aquiddick Island and his re)ort of it to police in Edgar- own Mass., the 37-year-old Kennedy revealed that he returned ;o the scene of the accident with ;wo friends, Paul Markham and Joseph Gargan, in an effort to save Miss Kopechne—a former secretary to the late Senator Robert Kennedy but "their suilty, not guilty'.'" town medical examiner.

Reuther, president of the United Auto Workers union, said in Detroit that the Nixon administration "obviously" is avoiding "some of our more difficult problems." Reuther charged: "More dollars are being wasted by the Pentagon than by any other group in America, and that's the effective place to start if the administration intends to deal with inflation." ,• Speaking at a Lake Geneva, Wis., convention, heart-transplant pioneer, Dr. Chris-. tiaan Barnard of South Africa said that transplant surgery has no moral or ethical problems for the medical world. He said: "There is no reason why we can't take a heajt from a donor who is legally dead." • Reminiscing at a London press conference, Beatle Ringo Starr said: "I couldn't go through the turmoil all over again.

Kennedy said he was overcome by a jumble of emotions, grief, fear, doubts, exhaustion, panic and shock, but said, "I do not intend to escape responsibility for my actions.

"I was overcome, I'm frank to say, by a genuine emotion, panic and shock," he said. Kennedy disclosed that he swam the 250-yard-wide channel from Chappaquiddick Island to the main island of Martha's, Vineyard, "nearly drowning once again," before collapsing in his Edgartown hotel room. Toward morning, he said, "I made an effort" to call his lawyer, former Asst. Atty. Gen. Burke Marshall, from a public telephone on Chappaquiddick Island. The Kennedy statement answered some of the questions that arose in (he wake of the accident, such as how he got back from the island to Edgartown and what his friends did when he returned dripping wet to the site of the party. But left unanswered were have been improper for him to comment. He sairf he participated in the Edgartown regatta and on July 18 he attended the cookout on the island for former Robert Kennedy campaign workers. He said he left about 11:15 p.m. with Miss Kopechne, whom he described as a gentle, kind and idealistic person whom the Kennedys wanted to make feel at home. Kennedy said only illness prevented his wife, Joan, from accompanying him to the regatta, which he participated in with his nephew, Joseph Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy. He said there was "no truth whatever to the widely circulated suspicion of immoral conduct that has been leveled at my behavior and hers." He said he knew of nothing of her behavior or that of any other of the five girls at the cookout that would lend any backing to such rumors. "Nor was I driving under the influence of liquor," he added. Kennedy said that when the car turned over, it immediately filled with water. "Water filled my lungs and I felt the sensation of drowning," he said. He said be dived for Miss Kopechne repeatedly. viii _^ ^ b .. b ^.._,. 0 "The defendant questions as whether the girljwhy none of the other men| He said his conversations and of""the" defendant. ° McCarron—"The defendant is will accept the suspension, your might still be alive somewhere! called authorities or how Ken-Aliens in Ihe next hours However there appears that adamant in this matter, your honor." out of thai immediate area, nedy gol losl on his way lo the!"make no sense to me at there were opportunities for the honor, that he wishes to plead Teller—"Edward M.

At the court in Edgartown Friday morning. Kennedy stood stern-faced at the prisoner's dock rail. His wife, Joan, looked ed at. him from across the room as he, the lawyers and Judge James A. Boyle went through the proceedings. Kennedy said only two words during the session. "Guilty," he replied twice in a low but firm voice when Clerk Thomas A. Teller read the words of the charge and asked: "How say you to this complaint, guilty or not guilty?" Kennedy stood erect but with his head bowed and his hands at his side. It took only 10 minutes for the court to dispose of the case. Kennedy came into the courtroom with Richard J. McCarron, an attorney, a few minutes before the session opened and went directly to a chair at the rail of the prisoners' dock. McCarron sat with Robert G. Claj-k, jr., who joined him as counsel two days ago. Arrangements for the manner in which the probationary period was to be fulfilled were left to Mrs. Helen Tyra, the woman in charge of the local probation office. "Already Punished" Judge Boyle said that "considering the unblemished record of this defendant, he has already been and will continue to be punished far beyond anything this court can impose." Dominick Arena, the police chief who swore out the complaint, told newsmen later he was satisfied with the proceedings, and said "The case is closed, as far as I am concerned."
