Hughes' Is Sparked by Booing Keynote Talk Comments hv Hnv Harn'H of Tax on Services (Continued from Page 1.) separately witrThim during the day M n. n L May He Back McCarthy may be back in Iowa July 4. possibly to see him again. He has been invited to address National Farmers Or- ganization meeting in Corning that day and has assigned a staff member to remain in Iowa this week until it is decided whether or not he can accept. He proved himself better at UP than McCarthy when he praised all of Democratic office 'holders specifically by name. McCarthy didn't mention any of them. Booing In making the statement for Kennedy delegates, Sueppel said it is their thought they can join with Kennedy deleg- ates from other states to have a say in writing the party's 1968 platform only if they re- main flexible and do not en- dorse either Humphrey or Mc- Carthy at this point. "If it appears that the plat- form will not express the ideas Sen. Kennedy worked Sueppel explained. "We feel we can work with other Kennedy about some Different Speeches Humphrey and McCarthy de- livered totally different kinds of speeches to some con- vention delegates and alter- nates and to another estimated listeners, largely McCar- thy supporters, in the balcon- ies. Ironically, it was McCarthy supporters who opened the door :with some ill-timed booing to the loudest response of the day, which was drawn by Humphrey. j They booed Humphrey's refer- to McCarthy's announced 'intention of visiting the Paris peace talks. (See story on Page McCarthy was the first to arrive in Des Moines at a.m. at Municipal airport where he was greeted by a crowd estimated at to 3.500 by highway patrolmen. McCarthy said it was the largest airport crowd he has drawn anywhere. He was welcomed by Gov. Hughes and gave a short talk at the airport and prior to driv- ing to the Savery hotel to lunch with Iowa delegates and alter- nates. Visit :Hughes during his keynote speech to Iowa Democratic convention in Des Moines Saturday included: Agriculture "it is true the farmers have been caught in a cost-price squeeze that has. deprived them of their share of the general prosperity in the nation today. i "The Democratic ad- i ministrations have not done .'everything for the farmer, but I they have done something and without that 'something' ifrom the feed-grain programs land other Democratic farm I programs, most farmers would 'be out of business. "The opposition party makes 'great capital of the economic j difficulties of the farmer under Uhe Democratic administration, I but what do they offer? Curtai- lment of present programs and the generosity of the free market, i Failure to fill the balconies was not disappointing to staf- fers of the two candidates or to Iowa Democratic party leaders. The luncheon was closed, but it was understood that McCar- thy made a low key pitch that lasted only five to 10 minutes, 'then answered questions. He did not ask delegates to .commit themselves to him. but rather that they hold them- selves open to make these two i decisions in Chicago: 1. What issues shall we take to the peo- a McCarthy aide said. Humphrey's Iowa chairman. State Sen. George O'Malley of Des Moines. commented that the crowd exceeded his expec- tations for a hot afternoon. Democratic State Chairman Clark Rasmussen and Conven- tion Chairman Lex Hawkins labeled it "a tremendous crowd" considering Veterans auditorium isn't air condition- ed. Hawkins even declared it to be the biggest crowd ever to attend a political state conven-' tion in Iowa's history. But the fact that" available balcony seats were less than half filled with the party's top draw- ing cards as the attraction, caused some delegates to won- der if it isn't a Republican year. Too Scholarly? McCarthy devoted his 32-min-i speech, interrupted many deep applause, to _ a case for an open convention in Chicago. One young McCarthy) te thought it was a little "too scholarly, saying: "I'm still for him. but I thought he could have been a. little more fiery." She thought Humphrey bet- ter in that respecl. McCarthy went back (o the days of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson to develop sup- porting data that the Democra- tic parly has always kept gov- ernment close to the people. (See story on Page onei. McCarthy walked off one side of the stage with Gov. Hughes at p.m. and 24 minutes later the governor walked in on the other side of the stage with Humphrey. The Vice-president's 46-min- ute address was interrupted with applause that seemed more polite than emotional, as he de- tailed accomplishments of the Democratic administration he has had a hand in over the last 20 years or so. Humphrey, scheduled to ar- rive at 1 p.m. at the airport, did not land until mak- ing it impossible for Gov. Hughes to welcome him since he had to introduce Mc- Carthy at p.m. Humphrey went to the Kirk- wood hotel to meet national delegates before addressing the state convention. Then he re- turned to the Kirkwood and stood for a picture with each of the delegates before going to 'visit Hughes at the Governor's mansion. -McCarthy left Des Moines shortly before 7 p.m. after at- tending a SlO-a-ticket fund-rais- ing reception in his honor at the auditorium after the convention ended. There was so much excite- ment over the presence of the two candidates that for a time it appeared the convention might not finish its business. But after the Humphrey speech, delegates quickly adopt- ed a state platform (See story on Page one) and then voted .against endorsing any candid- ate before the primary election Sept. 3. Instead they passed a motion to give the party support to all the candidates who win nomina- tion at the primary. i this point, we 'don't know who will be the next President, but we do know what 1 state he will be from Min- nesota "While both can- didates cnme from Minnesota.

"In the words of Jefferson 'every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle.' Robert Kennedy "We meet at a time when our nation is still grieving and bewildered by the appalling tragedy that so recently struck us. "Bob Kennedy was one of the bravest men who ever lived and one of the most profoundly committed to the human value causes we associate with the Democratic party. "The finest memorial we can offer Sen. Kennedy is to carry on with the causes for which he was willing to give his life.'' Progress "Does anybody want to go back to the key- clubs? To the Shaff plan?

In resolutions adopted at their annual meeting, the manufac- turers also commended con- gressional action in limiting federal expenditures as a con- dition of the income surtax.
