Winona Daily News (Newspaper) - August 10, 1966, Winona, Minnesota Johnson-Kennedy in '68? Humphrey: 'No! __ WASHINGTON (AP) "This Is whsf I rail th. t. ti. ,._.... WASHINGTON (AP) President Hubert H. Humphrey tmllingly dismissed speculation today that Sen. Robert F. Ken- nedy might replace him as President Johnson's 1968 run- ning mate. Asked about the speculation as he lounged on a sofa in his office behind the Senate cham- ber, Humphrey said in an Inter- view: "This Is what I call the haz- ard every vice president has to run. It is part of the basic (raining one has to go through. No man in public life is as much exposed to guerrilla war as a vice opportunity to be shot at from all sides. "If you survive, it is a mod- em-day miracle. But I plan on surviving." What about reports of a change In his liberal philosophy since becoming vice president? "I have not changed my basic philosophy, I have changed jobs. There are new responsi- bilities. I am no longer U.S. sen- ator from Minnesota." What about reports that of the party's liberals are veer- ing away from him and fol- lowing the leadership of Kenne- dy, a New York Democrat? "There is lots of room under canopy for new recruits. I welcome new recruits, I am pleased to see that liberalism in 1966 is a little more popular than it was in 1956 or even In 1960." In emphasizing that his role as a senator was much different from that at vice president, Humphrey said that as a sena- tor he was at liberty to pick and choose on any Issue and makt known differences with ths administration. "I am now the vice prwi- he said, "a member of the team of the administration. Whatever I do reflects on tha President. The President makes the policies. My contribution is in the councils of the adminis- tration. "I do not publicly debate with Cabinet officers or the Presi- dent, but I do speak my mind in the councils of the administra- tion." Talk that he was switching from his liberal views, Hum- phrey said, stemmed from "a handful of people" who disagree with his position on the war In Viet Nam. Humphrey has Fair to Partly Cloudy, Little Warmer Thursday WINONA DAILY NEWS strongly backed Johnson's Viet Nam policies. "That Is their "But Hubert Humphrey always believes that this nation has a responsibility in world, not only to Europe. "It Is a world power and has worldwide responsibilities and you do not prove yourself to be a liberal by ignoring the hard facts of aggression in Asia." TOMORROW _ SUN RISES SETS NEW MOON AUG. 16 lllth Yeir of Publication WINONA, MINNESOTA 55987, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST JO, 1966 Housing Law Goes ToSenate The; fight over a federal open housing law shifted to the Sen- ate today after House passage of the 1966 civil rights bill with the controversial provision in- tact. The bill, which would arm the federal government with broad new powers to protect Negroes' rights, was passed 259 to 157 Tuesday night but it was a fight to the finish for the housing pro- vision. Republican leader, made i last ditch effort to kill the pro- posed ban on racial discrimina- tion by anyone in the housing business, but failed by a vote of 222 to 190. Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen has called the provision totally unaccepta- ble to him. There are grave doubts it can pass the Senate without his support. Despite this, the bill's House backers and civil rights groups expressed cautious optimism that it would win final approval and become law. "If It Is killed, It will be by the said Rep. Eman- uel Celler, D-N.Y., chairman oi the House Judiciary Committee and the bill's chief sponsor. "I don't see how, in an election year, the Republicans can af- ford to let that happen. In any case the monkey is now on the Senate's back." The House-passed bill would put the government into new areas in the civil rights strug- gle. Besides seeking to improve housing opportunities for Ne- groes it would classify as feder- al crimes a new scries of of- fenses involving racial violence. On one side, the federal gov- ernment could move against anyone who used force or vio- lence against a Negro or civil rights worker lawfully engaged in any activity sanctioned by federal law. On the other hand, it also would be a federal crime for anyone to go from one state into another for the purpose of lead- Ing, encouraging or taking part in a riot. That amendment was put to a separate roll call vote Tuesday and won approval by a thunder- ing 389-25 margin. Rep. William C. Cramer, R-Fla., its author, assured the House it would not prevent anyone from taking part In a peaceful demonslra lion.

And most important, where is it head- ed? In this article, Asso- ciated Press Writer Bob Horton reviews the Ameri- can commitment in Viet Ham and looks to Us fu- ture. By BOB HORTON WASHINGTON (AP) Signs mount that the United States may have a Korean-sized war on its hands in Viet Nam around Christmas. This would mean an Ameri- can comrnilment of about 000 men in Southeast Asia, the peak level of U.S. forces used directly and in support of Ko- rean operations in 1953. Present U.S. strength in activ- ity tied to the Viet Nam war is estimated at including troops in Viet Nam, 000 seamen offshore and at least military personnel spread over bases, supply complexes and other facilities In Guam, Thailand, the Philippines and Okinawa. Reports persist, and are not officially denied, that by the end of this year American troops wilhin Viel Nam will total about some greater than at present. From President Johnson on down, various leaders have talked of bolstering American forces as a means of trying to pressure Communists to negoti- ate a settlement of the conflict.

The pilot's luck ran out Monday .when he was shot down deep WASHINGTON (AP) Con- gress appears likely to give President Johnson only token support in providing the tools he says are needed to correct cond- itions he blames for racial riot- ing. Johnson told a news confer- ence Tuesday he will be ready with a good many such recom- mendations for the Congress which meets next January. He called for action this year on teacher corps, rent supplement and demonstration cities bills. Opposition to the latter meas- ures in Congress is so strong that administration leaders have been trying desperately to compromise to get even token approval of the programs In- volved. The subject of race riots drew comment Tuesday night from Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D- N.Y., who said the United Slates as a government has not "made the kind of commitment neces- sary to deal with problems of the ghetto." Speaking on a television documentary in New York, Kennedy said it seems almost as if "we are waiting for even a greater catastrophe before we are willing to take the step." Here is where the three meas- ures mentioned by Johnson now stand on the legislative ladder: The House already has voted against providing any funds in the current fiscal year for the program of enlisting teachers to be paid by the federal gov- ernment for work in slum areas. Efforts are under way in the Senate to rescue the mil- lion appropriation. But even if these are successful the House N'EIYSMAN PUNCHED Chicago news reporter Jeff Kamen is punched by a white man during demonstra- tions at Grenada, Tuesday night.

The President's request for million to supplement rent payments so that low income families can have adequate housing was cut by the House to million. Johnson's biggest request to provide crash aid for cleaning up slum areas is for a lion, five-year "demonstration cities" project. This program is aimed at rebuilding and re- storing large -slum or blighted areas of certain cities which have not yet been selected. Rolvaag, Keith Hard at Work ST. PAUL (AP) There are Just over four weeks left In the campaign for Minnesota's pri- mary election, but the two ma- jor combatants are racing around the stale as though elec- tion day were next Tuesday. Gov. Karl F. Rolvaag and LI. Gov. A.M. Keith are going at a breakneck pace and likely will keep it up right up to Sept. 13, when Minnesota voters will choose between them for the DFL nomination for governor. With RepnbUcans also criss- crossing the stale, any citizen who doesn't tuck his right hand carefully into his pocket is go- ing to have a hard time keeping some politician from shaking it. With no real issues separating them, Keith and Rolvaag seem to have settled on about three party boss- es and prosperity. Keith is hammering away at the theme with which he began his campaign last February that Rolvaag has failed to pro- vide the creative spark or lead- ership needed by the state. Rolvaag End his followers are basking in a glow of widespread support right now, it appears, and are trying to follow a pat- tern of "don't rock the boat." Rolvaag, 53, talks of hls rec- ord, and of the state's prosperity and of his snub by a "clique" wilhin the DFL parly. But the words ara mild and carefully chosen to avoid any semblance of an attack on Keith. There seems virtually no chance that Rolvaag will ac- cept Keith's challenge to a de- bate, or do anything else in the nature of a face to face show- down. Keith staked out his whole campaign last week with a 21- point program designed as a blueprint for requests he would make to the 1967 legislature. Parts of the program were vague, intended only as goals without pricetags and without many details of how they would work. But there was nothing vague about the many references to "leadership" sprinkled through- out the program. In almost ev- ery section, Keith said it is up to the governor to take the lead, even if he must deal with a hostile legislature. It was spelled out clearly that Keith feels Rolvaag has not done a good job as a leader WEATHER FEDERAL FORECAST WINONA AND VICINITY Fair to partly cloudy tonight and Thursday.

He was presumed captured although the official U.S. an- nouncement listed him as miss- ing. Kasler's Thunderchief was one of three shot down Monday. His wingman went down a few minutes earlier.

Three of the victims of attack were identified as Viet Cong. Reports indicated that al- most all the rest of the dead and wounded were Vietnamese villagers. The attack took place right miles from Can Tho, the largest town in the Mekong Delta and headquarters of the Vietnamese army 4th corps.

Six hours later the Communists re- treated Into the jungle. In both North and South Viet Nam, U.S. planes made hundreds of strikes, including a B52 raid on a suspected troop hideout 40 miles northwest of the South Vietnamese coastal town of Qui Nhon.

He said hs did not know whether the prov- ince chief mistook the villagers for Viet Cong. Lynda Job Hunts, While Luci Continues Vacation NEW YORK (AP) _ Lynda Bird Johnson, job-hunting while her sister honeymoons, is in New York to shop, sightsee and talk to prospective employers. Actor George Hamilton, Lyn- da's frequent escort, took her Tuesday night to see the musi- cal "Sweet Charity." Earlier in the day she spoke with Robert Stein, editor of McCalPs maga- zine. She Is to relurn today to Washington, where President Johnson confirmed at his news conference Tuesday that his elder daughter was being inter- viewed "preparatory to deciding what work she will do this year." Thai seemed to mean that Lynda, 22, has given up plans for graduate study at the Uni- versity of Texas, where she re- ceived a bachelor's degree with honors last spring. Meanwhile in the Bahamas, Luci Johnson Nugent and her new husband, Patrick, honey- mooned in absolute privacy, concealed from the curious by gales and shrubbery at a 000 Nassau Beach estate. Sir Ralph Grey, governor of the Bahamas, issued a state- ment welcoming the couple and asking islanders to respect their privacy. Newsmen Tuesday sent 20 roses and a card requesting in- terviews and pictures to the honeymoon villa. The bouquet and card were returned with word: The answer was 'no.' Lynda's interview with Mc- Call's apparently was supposed to be secret also. "I'm safd Stein when he learned that word of the talk was out. "There real. ly isn't anything at this point to talk about." Lynda wrote an article for Mc- Call's last fall on an archeolog- ical expedition she made in tha Southwest.
