(AP) — President Johnson was reported hesitating today over the possible choice of Sen. Hubert IL Humphrey as his running mate because of Southern opposition. The Democratic National Convention, heading into its second formal session with the issue of seating a Mississippi delegation unsolved, still had no word from its White House headquarters about the President’s preference for a vice presidential nominee. Minnesota’s Humphrey, who was everywhere doing everything he could to prevent any incident that would mar the unity that Johnson wanted achieved, was the consensus choice by leading Democrats for the place. But individually and collectively they conceded they See STILL IN DOUBT.

There was speculation this morning that a plan to increase the proposed 1.1-mill recreation and park levy to meet the pay hike would receive prime attention. There now is talk of an additional 1.1-mill levy for general operations. The levies would be in addition to nine-tenths-mill renewal levy that will be on the November ballot, also for recreational and park. Iii oilier dexelonments this morning, Police Chief Louis Clark said he had no knowledge that 2 of his men were going to attend last night’s council meeting to make a pay hike request. He added that plans he had prepared to present to council for a pay raise wore “down tin' drain now” because of their action. ‘ It was not sanctioned by me and I knew nothing of it.” Clark said. He went on to state he thought it was the job of the department head to go before council for such a request. Clark said he had such plans in mind, but planned to present “facts” to council to back up his claims. ( lark also noted his proposal also called for pay hikes for 4 deskmen in addition to himself. The 2 policemen last night suggested $50 per month raises for all policemen, exclusive the chief and deskmen. The chief noted that 2 of his men have made application for higher-paying jobs as state patrolmen and that several others were “looking” for more profitable jubs. One patrolman, Cecil Ryan, recently resigned because of the low pay and because he had ‘ not had an increase since starting to work 4 vears ago.” ON THE INSIDE This is an artist's conception of the new Fairless High which will be constructed at Justus to serve students from Beach City, Wilmot, Brewster and Navarre. ...
