Mondale 143 Hart 129 Jackson 27 McGovern 21 Glenn 12 IMS Associated Press McGovern Out New York Times News Service BOSTON - Sen. George McGovern finished third in the Massachusetts primary Tuesday, saying he would withdraw from the race as he had pledged he would unless he took the first or second spot. Speaking to his supporters in Boston, McGovern said, "With all good cheer I fully accept the verdict of my special friends, the voters in Massachusetts." McGovern won only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia in 1972 when he was the Democratic Presidential candidate and was trounced by Richard Nixon. McGovern said he would now consider whether to endorse one of the four remaining Democratic contenders. In the last few days there were some signs of increased support for McGovern. Short of funds, McGovern decided to concentrate on Massachusetts in the two weeks between the New Hampshire primary and Tuesday's primaries and caucuses. In the last few days McGovern emptied his meager campaign chest, buying $250,000 in television advertising on Boston's three major stations. He also staged a large rally in Boston Monday with Arlo Guthrie, the folk singer. "I need your vote, your voice and your help," he said at the Boston rally. "Look into your hearts, your consciences," McGovern continued, repeating a theme he sounded last month in Iowa. "The vote you cast is not a bet on a $2 horse race." Aid Plans Offered immediate aid to El Salvador would be conditioned on demonstrated progress toward ending death squads and making other governmental reforms. And the Senate Intelligence Committee struck a compromise on the administration's request for $21 million in emergency aid for the Nicaraguan guerrillas by voting Tuesday to grant the money in installments. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Appropriations Committee is looking at a compromise on the twin issues of aiding anti-leftist guerrillas in Nicaragua and bolstering the beleaguered government of El Salvador. Administration supporters planned to offer both measures today as amendments to a bill providing $150 million in food aid to African nations, where relief agencies say thousands face starvation because of drought.

Hart and Mondale Each Claim Slice of Victory By The Associated Press Rounding the first turn in the Democratic presidential race, Gary Hart and Walter Mondale emerged neck and neck after Super Tuesday's primaries and caucuses. The Colorado senator claimed a victory over "the politics of yesterday," while the former vice president asserted he was "back in the race." The contest looked more and more like a two-man race as Hart and Mondale headed into the industrial Midwest today where Michigan and Illinois are the next big targets. Of the five primaries on Tuesday, Hart carried Florida, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, while Mondale was the winner in Georgia and Alabama. Hart and Mondale were only a few votes apart in Oklahoma caucuses, while Hart jumped to a comfortable lead in Washington. Caucus results from Hawaii had Mondale winning only 5 of 27 delegates up.for grabs, with the other 22 remaining uncommitted. Hart was leading Mondale in Nevada's caucuses. Hart looked assured of a majority of the 511 delegates chosen on the campaign's busiest day so far, but Mondale continued to hold the overall lead. Of the delegates selected since the process began, Mondale had 285 and Hart 167. John Glenn had 33 delegates and the Rev. Jesse Jackson 31. George McGovern, saying he would "fully accept the verdict of my special friends, the voters of Massachusetts," was the latest casualty of the race after finishing third in the state that stood alone in his column in 1972. "I feel younger this morning than I did in 1972 when I was defeated by former President Nixon," McGovern said on ABC's "Good Morning America." His departure cuts the Democratic field to four. The race began with eight contenders. Hart said he talked to McGovern today but didn't get an endorsement. "He' said that Vice President Mondale is in his judgment a more classic liberal." Hart was flying to Detroit to meet with United Auto Workers officials bucking labor's united front for Mondale. Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, he predicted that Michigan "will be a very tough state for us." But he told the "CBS Morning News" that "I think this campaign does have national strength." Mondale, meanwhile, bypassed the network's morning news shows to sleep before heading to Illinois to address the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. "We're back and ready to run," his campaign manager, Robert Beckel, said on the NBC show. "Yes, See Victory Page 2 Associated Press Sen.

Talks on Lebanon Shift to Politics LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -A new cease-fire accord was in force in Lebanon today as reconciliation talks between the country's rival Christian and Moslem leaders shifted to the crucial issue of political reforms. Police in Beirut said they had no reports of artillery shelling sice the cease-fire was declared Tuesday night but that sniping persisted today along the "green line" dividing the Lebanese capital's Moslem and Christian sectors. In Lausanne, where leaders of the rival factions have been meeting since Monday, doubts persisted as to whether the cease-fire would hold. Scores of announced cease-fires have collapsed during nine years of civil warfare. "I am not sure," said Nabih Berf i, leader of the powerful Shiite Moslem militia Amal, when asked if the accord meant an end to the sectarian strife. He said he instructed his men, to stop firing but predicted they would retaliate if fired upon. The terms of the cease-fire accord were designed to establish a permanent truce, including the creation of buffer zones, a watchdog commission to be formed by retired army and police officers, and an end to all "hostile media campaigns." A military committee, comprising representatives of all warring groups, was appointed to take "all adequate measures" to consolidate the cease-fire and to reopen Beirut's port and international airport. The accord, reached with the help of top-level Syrian and Saudi Arabian observers, averted a threatened breakdown of the conference and cleared the way for discussions on how Moslems and Christians should share power. An early deadlock had developed in the two-day old talks when Berri and his opposition ally, Druse leader Walid Jumblatt, demanded that all participants, including President Amin Gemayel sign the accord as "parties to the conflict." Gemayel, however, said he would sign only as president and chairman of the Lausanne conference. "This so-called president does not realize yet that he is at war with the Lebanese people," Jumblatt snapped in an interview. But eventually, agreement on the accord was reached by consensus, without requiring signatures. Autry Executed by Injection JAMES DAVID AUTRY HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A smiling James David Autry, saying "I love you" to a female pen pal and that he was going to a "better place," was executed by lethal injection today for killing a woman store clerk during a holdup. It was the second time in six months that Autry lay strapped to a hospital gurney in the death chamber, intravenous needles in his No one will listen? Concern, 667-0145. Sale ends Saturday. Wi Ik ins' ShoeCenter. Fresh Seafood Daily - The Fish Market, 574 North Loudoun. 662-2781. arms. But this time there was no stay of execution. Autry was pronounced dead in the Texas prison's remodeled powder-blue death chamber at 12:40 a.m. by prison physician Dr. L.A. Masters. Gov. Mark White announced 70 minutes earlier that he would not halt the execution, and the U.S. Supreme Court voted 7-2 earlier Tuesday to reject Autry's request for a fourth stay. A federal judge also turned down his request to allow television coverage of the execution. Autry became the 14th person executed in the United States since the Supreme Court reinstated capital punishment in 1976, and the second in Texas. In a letter written Tuesday night to The Associated Press, Autry said, "I'm fixing to die and my God has a better place waiting for me." The condemned man was strapped to the wheeled hospital cart at 12:03 a.m. Needles were inserted in his arms and at 12:15, a saline solution to carry the fatal drug began to flow. A minute later, witnesses Wjere brought into the death chamber. The flow of lethal drugs began at 12:25 a.m. Warden Jack Purley asked Autry if he had any last words, and Autry replied, "No." Autry smiled at Shirley Tadlock, a Dallas mother of three who began corresponding with him last October. "I love you," Autry said. Mrs. Tadlock, 31, clutching a wad of pink tissues, answered, "I love you, too." After several emotional exchanges between the couple, a smile on Autry's face was replaced by a frown as his breathing became more labored. Autry cried out again, "I love you." He was pronounced dead 15 minutes after the injection began. Gunfire Wounds Official of IRA BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) - Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams, head of the IRA's legal political arm, was shot and wounded in downtown Belfast today in an apparent assassination attempt, police said. The 35-year-old Adams was shot in the neck and shoulder on a city street during a lunch break in a trial in which he faces obstruction charges stemming from a rally during last June's British general elections. He was taken to Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital, police said. There was no immediate word on his condition.
