The 53-year-old millionaire industrialist Sunday accused Gov. Scranton of runing his administration "by public relations." Shapp also called his upset gubernatorial victory over the Democratic organization - backed candidate a "repudiation of the policies of ex-Pennsylvania Gov. David L. Lawrence." Lawrence is a veteran key leader in the parly. Shapp staged a reported $1 million campaign in successfully challenging the party organization choice, Sen. Robert P. Casey of Scranton. The Philadelphia business executive attacked the Scranton administration and discussed other topics in two separate television appearances (WCAU-TV and KYW-TV). In criticizing Scranton, Shapp said: "I'd like to get Madison Avenue out of Harrisburg and bring real progress to the state. Scranton has "emasculated public education," Shapp charged. He said there are 7,000 fewer employers in Pennsylvania than when Scranton took over despite claims to the contrary.

PEACOCK WASHINGTON (AP) - The administration's Viet Nam policy goes on the line Tuesday before Oregon Democratic voters choosing their party's nominee for the Senate. The primary voters will be offered a choice between Howard Morgan, 52, who is critical of President Johnson's Viet Nam policy, and Rep. Robert B. Duncan, 45, who supports its. As an added fillip, Sen. Wayne Morse, Oregon Democrat who has been sharply critical of the administration, has staked his prestige on a 4----------� victory for Morgan. At the same time, Florida and Oklahoma voters will be settling runoff races for nominations for governor, and Kentucky voters will be choosing Senate candidates. There also will be contests in Oregon for gubernatorial nominations and in both Oregon and Kentucky primary races for Congress will be staged. Because of the clash of views on Viet Nam policy, national interest is centered on the rival bids by Morgan and Duncan. Morse has declared that if Morgan was not nominated he would vote for Gov. Mark Hatfield. Hatfield is the prospective Republican Senate nominee although he faces primary opposition from Walter Huss, an ultra-conservative. The Senate seat involved in this struggle is now held by Sen. Maurine B. Neuberger, Democrat, who chose not to seek reelection. State Treasurer Robert Straub is bidding in Oregon for the Democratic nomination for governor. He is opposed by State Sen. Ben Musa.

Ky's success, despite sharp initial U.S. disapproval of his surprise troop movement north, gave the 35-year-old premier a considerable boost in his campaign to retain power and retain control of the army's 1st Corps area. With the tide turned in his favor in Da Nang, Ky also moved his troops against anti-American rioters who set two U.S. military vehicles on fire outside the main Buddhist Institute in Saigon. The troops threw rows of barbed wire around the institute to contain further disorders. One influential monk, Thien Minh, announced a mass Bud-dist "march of peace" in Saigon Wednesday. He disassociated the Buddhist leadership from involvement in the rioting. Minh is a lieutenant of Tri Quang, the principal Buddhist leader in the north and reputed architect of the antigovernment campaign.

(Progress Photo) Fewer Students Take Draft Deferment Test WASHINGTON (AP) - Some school officials say the light turnout for the second session of the draft deferment quiz may be a result of draft director Lewis B. Hershey's statement that few collegians actually will be drafted. About 250,000 students had been expected to take Saturday's examination. Considerably fewer showed up at testing centers in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Panama Canal Zone. At the first session May 14, about 400,000 students took the three-hour, 150-qucstion test. But Lt. Gen. Hcrshey, Selective Service director, told a reporter last week in Dallas, Tex., that few if any college students will be' drafted unless the monthly draft quota jumps over 30,000 men. Hcrshey said there are enough nonstudents and college dropouts to fill current military needs. Next month's quota was set at 15,000 men and the list has jumped over 30,000 only twice this year, in January and in May. One official who linked the light turnout to Hershey's speech was James C.
