(AP Photofax) Key Senators Agree On Civil Rights Plan By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) Sen- tte leaders face the task today of winning support for a batch ef compromise amendments timed cracking tto long civil rights stalemate. Key Republican and Demo- cratic senators agreed on the compromise package Wednes- day after their sixth meeting with Atty. Gen. Robert F. Ken- nedy. the next step will be an ef- fort by the leaders to sell the proposed changes to their rank- and-file members at party cau- cuses-on Tuesday for Re- publicans, and probably for the too. The big question is whether the amendments, which restrict the scope of the House bill, will make it possible to win over enough senators to invoke clo- ture and thus shut off the South- ern oratory blocking action on the measure. Republican Leader Everett M.

Rather this elec- tion seems to have turned into a Lodge vs. the rest of the field contest, with the American am- bassador to South Viet Nam holding a rather solid lead and Rockefeller, Nixon and Goldwa- ter vying for second pi act well behind. Over the weekend, Rockefel- ler at least temporarily sup- planted Nixon in second place after running third earlier. Such bobbing up and down is unus- ual in elections, but not in pri- maries where preferences are not so deeply held. But at no time has the New York gover- nor come close to passing Lodge.

Edward H. Lundquist, 50, quit corporation affiliate. Leigh J. Gard, tssiiUnt dii- trict attorney, said Lundquist had admitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he had converted to his own use the sums of and taken on three separate occasions from one large ac- count in the bank, which was npt identified. Gard said Lundquist had of- fered to make restitution of the funds reportedly used in backing developments he has in Mexico, including a manganese property and a brokerage company. I.nndqgisl had headed tbe bank since 1961. He had joined the staff of the then Union Na- tional Bank in 1947, only shortly before it was taken over the Minneapolis based bank chain. A native of Nashua, Minn., Lundquist earlier had been em- ployed by banks at Fergus Falls and Thief River Falls. The banker was active in Ro- chester business and civic af- fairs and is a director of Meth- odist Hospital, the Kahler Corp., Rocheser hotel chain, and the YWCA. He also was a trustee of Luther College, Decorah, Io- wa, which he attended for three years earlier in life. Gard the evidence prob- ably would submitted to Federal Grand Jury, meeting in Minneapolis soon. July Draft Is for WASHINGTON an Defense Department Wednesday ordered the drafting of g.ooo men for the Army in July.

The Democratic leaders must produce either 41 or 42 of their 67 members. There are 18 South- ern Democrats and one Repub- John C. the group opposed to the bill. Assistant Democratic Leader Hubert H. Humphrey, the bill's floor manager, pointed out that cloture coald be achieved with 41 from his side if only 99 sen- ators vote, as seems likely. Sen. Clair Engle, D-Calif., is ill and is not expected to be on hand. To impose cloture requires the votes of two-thirds of the sena- tors present. Humphrey said that, even If the package wins wide accept- ance at the conference next week, an attempt will no', be made to invoke cloture immedi- ately. "We will first have to take the floor and explain the amend- ments he said. Humphrey said he now be- lieves that the amendments would be offered in the form of a substitute for the eniire House- passed bill. This would have the advantage of acting on them with one vote.

Minnesota River Near Flood Stage By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Minnesota 'River approached flood stage in the Carver Shakopee Savagej area today as a result of recent heavy rains. A further rise in the stream can be expected through Satur- day, Joseph Strub, Minneapolis Weather Bureau hydrologist, said. He added that river area firms and residents should be concerned if heavy rains fall between now and May 21. Some lowland pastures were awash in some areas, Strub said, but no major industrial damage has occurred. Some Savage area firms were using pumps to clear seepage water. The Minnesota was about a foot under flood stage at Sav- age. The rise between now and Tuesday will be slow, Strub said. Once the crest is reached it will hold for several days, making the stream susceptible to any heavy rains. From St. Paul to Guttenberg, Iowa, the Mississippi will crest at a stage ot about three to four feet below flood level between now and Tuesday, Strub said. South Viet Nam Can Win, Says McNamara WASHINGTON tary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, returning from an- other trip to South Viet Nam, said today' he would be happy to report committee there. The House to a congressional on the situation Armed Services Committee has indicated it ex pects MeNamara to appear to discuss complaints of obsolete equipment, and to report on the general outlook of the protract- ed war in the Southeast Asian country. McNaman was asked by newsmen how long thinks the war will last. He replied that it will be "a long war, a hard path to victory will be long." He said, however, that "I firmly believe that persistent execution" of plans will lead to eventual success. The Pentagon chief also told newsmen plans are being devel personnel force in a few months.

Supreme Court Ruling Ends 3-Year Dispute MADISON, WIs. consin Supreme Court, in an un- precedented move, reapportion- ed the state's political district! today to give Milwaukee Coun- ty 25 Assembly seats. The ac- tion climaxed a three-year im- passe between Democratic gov- ernors and Republican-control- led Legislatures. The action is the first of its kind in the nation and the only time a Wisconsin Supreme Court has drawn new legislative boundaries to meet constitution- al requirements. In allotting the state's most populous coiinty one more As- sembly seat than it now has, the court rejected a contention by Gov. John W. Reynolds that Milwaukee County deserved 26 seats. The disagreement over wheth- er Milwaukee should have 25 or 26 seats was the reason (or the stalemate between Rsyn- THIS TYPE SHIP SHELLED CUBA Cuba's Fidel Castro claimed Wednesday that a ship of this type, the 174-foot motorship Rex shown in West Palm Beach, Fla., last October, stood off the shore of Port 6f Pilon, Cuba, Wednesday and shelled its sugar mill.

Five persons died when an F105 fighter plane plunged into a new housing development where housewives were hanging out laundry and children were play- ing on a sunny afternoon.

Turkish Foreign Minister Fer- idun Cemal Erkin had accepted a mediation role for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Wednesday. But Kostopoulos until today had argued that the Cyprus dispute was not a NATO matter, the position held by President Makarios of Cyprus. The agreement avoided ma- jor crisis in ths alliance.

Three Dead in Tannery Blast PEABODY, Mass. men were known dead, and at least four others were injured today when an explo- sion followed by fire wrecked a tannery near the center of the city.

Aside from Hebert, all were residents of the tract. In five days Hebert would have gone on 27 days leave. An unidentified (ruck driver gave this account: "I was rounding tie corner and could see the plane coming in nose up and tail down. It struck the first house with the tail aflame and skidded across the rooftops lo other homes." Two weeks ago, in an inter- view, Brig. Gen. Boyd Hubbard, Nellis commander, had warned contractors that building homes close to the air base was "court- ing disaster." The development is seven miles away but in the path of runways, those on the scene said. Its homes are in the price range. Vincent Ronde, another eye- witness, said that when the plane hit "it was like a bubble filled with water. It was just a big splash. I saw two women hang- ing out clothes where it hit. They disappeared. I heard s woman scream. There was a tremendous heat wave. I'll never forget that scream." Authorities evacuated a 20- square-block area upon learning the plane carried six small prac- tice bombs and 20 mm can- non rounds, Hebert, an Air Force spokes- man said, was on an air-to-air gunnery practice mission. The first hint of trouble was Hebert's report to the control tower that his landing gear would not re- tract, the spokesman said.

Only senators representing even-numbered districts must stand for re-election in even-- numbered years. The rula makes Leverich a holdover and puts Donnelly out of the Senate for at least two years, unless he decides to change his address to another district. In the Assembly, the court added one seat (o Milwaukee County to give it 25, two seats ta Waukesha County for a total of four and one scat to Outa- gamie County for a total of three.
