Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 30, 1968, Cedar Rapids, Iowa M. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., .lune 30. 1068 Ovation for Humphrey Is Sparked by Booing (Continued from Pape I.) separately with him during the day. May Be Back McCarthy may be hack in Iowa July 4. possibly to see him again. He has been invited to address National Farmers Organization 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. In making the statement for Kennedy delegates. Sueppel said it is their thought they ran join with Kennedy delegates from other states to have a say in writing the party's 1968 platform only if they remain flexible and do not endorse either Humphrey or McCarthy at this point. “If it appears that the platform will not express the ideas Sen. Kennedy worked for." Sueppel explained. “We feel we can work with other Kennedy delegates to bring about some changes.” Different Speeches Humphrey and McCarthy delivered totally different kinds of speeches to some 4.00n convention delegates and alternates and to another estimated 3.000 listeners, largely McCarthy supporters, in the balconies. Failure to fill the balconies was not disappointing to staffers of the two candidates or to Iowa Democratic party leaders. “We don't get big crowds anywhere on warm Saturday afternoons." a McCarthy aide said Humphrey’s Iowa chairman. State Sen. George O’Malley of Des Moines, commented that the crowd exceeded his expectations for a hot afternoon Democratic State Chairman Clark Rasmussen and Convention Chairman Lex Hawkins labeled it "a tremendous crowd" considering Veterans auditorium isn’t air conditioned. Hawkins even declared it to be the biggest crowd ever to attend a political state convention in Iowa’s history. But the fact that available balcony seats were less than half filled with the party’s top drawing cards as the attraction, caused some delegates to wonder if it isn t a Republican year. Too Scholarly? McCarthy devoted his 32-min-ute speech, interrupted many times by deep applause, to developing a case for an open convention in Chicago. One young McCarthyite 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 came off better in that respect. McCarthy went back to the days of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson to develop supporting data that the Democratic party has always kept government close to the people. < See story on Page one > McCarthy walked off one side of the stage with Gov. Hughes at 2:56 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 detailed accomplishments of the Democratic administration he has had a hand in over the last 20 vears or so. si He proved himself better at buttering up Iowa leaders than McCarthy when he praised all of Iowa's Democratic office holders specifically by name McCarthy didn't mention any of them. Booing 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. They booed Humphrey’s reference to McCarthy's announced intention of visiting the Paris peace talks. (See story on Page one). McCarthy was the first to arrive in Des Moines at 11:30 am. at Municipal airport where he was greeted by a crowd estimated at 3,000 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 driving to the Sa very hotel to lunch with Iowa delegates and aLer-nates. \ isit Delegates The luncheon was cloned, hut it was understood that McCarthy made a low key pitch that la-'ed only five to IO minutes, then answered questions He did not a-k delegates to commit themselves to him. but rather that they hold themselves open to make these two decisions in Chicago: 1. What issues shall we take to the people?, and. 2.. What candidate do you w ant to take them to the people? Humphrey, scheduled to ar-ri\e at I p.m. at the airport, did not land until 2:10, making it impossible for Go\. Hughes to welcome him sinre he had to introduce Mc-Carthv at 2:2ft p.m. Humphrey went to the Kirkwood hotel to meet national delegates before addressing the state convention Then he returned 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 I pm. after attending a Slft-a-ticket fund-raising reception in his honor at the auditorium after the convention ended. There was so much excitement over the presence of the two candidates that for a time it appeared the convention might not finish its business. But atter the Humphrey speech, delegates quickly adopted a state platform (See story on Page onei and then voted against endorsing any candidate before the primarv election Sept. 3. Instead they passed a motion to give the party support to all the candidates who win nomination at the primary Journalism Workshop By Sister Christine Sister Mary Ann Christine, journalism instructor at LaSalle high school, will present a workshop on “The New Journalism Explodes in the Classroom" during journalism day at the National Education Assn. convention in Dallas Monday.

Clint- Manufacturers Urge Repeal of Tax on Services OKOBOJI (AP) - The Iowa Manufacturers Association Saturday urged the next legislature to repeal the state tax on services, claiming the law is “awkwardly drawn and incapable of reasonable interpretation.” The group also asked for an overall study and revision of property tax laws Property taxation is complicated and results in “oppressive and unequal taxation.” it said In resolutions adopted at their annual meeting, the manufacturers also commended congressional action in limiting federal expenditures as a condition of the income surtax. “The basic cause of the cost and price inflation from which the American economy is currently suffering is that federal finances have been allowed to get out of control.” the group said. Bruce Van Druff of Red Oak was elected president of the association. Elected to other positions were E. A. MeCardel of New- . .    .    ii/ ton. vice-president; JIL Bragg U.O.
