Sen. Hinkie takes applause of supporters a wire photo muskies showing Between extremes an a news analysis by Walter r. Mears a political writer Manchester. . Apr sen. Edmund s. Muskie s showing in the new Hampshire presidential preference primary is neither the Clear Victory the front running Democrat sought nor the major political blow his democratic rivals claim. It is rather the first instalment in a Long arduous season of primary contests and it will be eclipsed in a week by the verdict of the voters in Florida. However Muskie appears to have suffered an unexpected blow in the selection of the democratic National convention delegates from new Hampshire. His managers had expected to sweep those contests but partial returns showed Muskie supporters leading in Only la of 20 races. Sen. George s. Mcgovern the Man who got the biggest boost in new Hampshire was leading for the other nine delegates. Muskie appeared to be scoring Little better than a standoff in the separate Delegate selection balloting. The 20 new Hampshire delegates will have 18 nominating votes to cast. The 11-9 Muskie Edge was based on 38 per cent of the anticipated democratic vote As the slow count proceeded today. If that outcome stood new Hampshire would add Little to the Muskie game plan in which the Maine senator is entering almost every contest in Hopes of gathering the magic 1,509 delegates that it will take to nominate when democrats Convene in Miami Beach fla., july to. In that Effort the crucial contests Are ahead. Muskie Hopes Are High for a major Victory in Illinois where 170 delegates will be at stake in a March 21 primary. A More impressive new Hampshire showing could have provided a psychological boo get in the Delegate collecting Effort. It also might have helped in Florida where la democrats Are in the race and where Muskie strategists fear he might finish third behind Alabama gov. George c. Wallace and sen. Hubert la. Humphrey of Minnesota. Florida polls rate Muskie and Humphrey in a tight race for a second place finish behind the favored Wallace. And now Muskie must seek votes far from his new England base in Florida and in Illinois and in Wisconsin on april 4. Muskie remains the Man any other Democrat must beat to gain the nomination. But the bandwagon Days fashioned around the pre primary endorsements of democratic leaders and officeholders Are Over for now. The senator from Maine has 23 More primaries in which to try to bring them Back his rivals have that Many opportunities to Stop him.

Vote Muskie Battles for delegates by Carl p. Leubsdorf a political writer Manchester nil apr sen. Edmund s. Muskie of Maine Winner of new Hampshire Sladoff democratic primary grappled with sen. George s. Mcgovern today in an unexpectedly tight Battle for control of the state s delegation to the democratic National convention. Muskie captured the presidential preference balloting with a solid 48 per cent As counting neared an end Mcgovern ran a Strong second with 37 per cent. But Only a handful of votes separated Many of the Delegate candidates. The final result is almost certain to remain undecided until All ballots Are tabulated. Tie situation recalled that of 1968. When former president Lyndon b. Johnson running As a write in candidate edged former sen. Eugene j. Mccarthy in the preference vote but came to grief in the Delegate contest As Mccarthy captured 20 of 24 delegates. Some kind of split delegation seemed certain this time. Muskie despite failure to achieve the majority sought by his managers called the outcome Quot a Good solid he told a news conference Quot we deliberately sacrificed the possibility of a maximum showing in order to have some resources Lett for the other Mcgovern enhanced his presidential credentials with a Strong second place showing that he said would give him a big boost across the country. Quot its both a moral Victory and a political Victory a he said. In the Republican primary president Nixon swept the preference contest and captured ail 14 gop delegates. Early tuesday evening. Muskie backers led for All 20 democratic Delegate slots. As the night wore on Mcgovern supporters moved closer toward a possible split of the delegation which will decide later How to split its 18 convention votes. With 42 Lier cent of the vote counted the tally stood Muskie ii Mcgovern 9. By new Hampshire Law delegates who run pledged to a candidate must vote for him until released by the candidate or until he is out of the convention contest. Ail the Nixon delegates Are pledged to him. In the democratic contests the la delegates who appear to be won by Muskie Are pledged to him and the other nine Are pledged to Mcgovern. The increasing Chance of a split return in the contest for delegates further clouded the showing of Muskie As he headed for a Tough contest in Florida next week without the overwhelming new England sendoff that would have strengthened his bid for the White House. Muskie battling Mcgovern and three other significant challengers fell Short of the absolute majority in preference voting that his managers had set privately As a new Hampshire goal. Muskie however said Quot i think i did very Well indeed despite what he had termed Quot a virtual drumbeat of venom from conservative publisher William Loeb a Manchester Union Leader and the need to spread his resources by running in All 24 presidential primaries. Asked about Mcgovern s claims. Muskie said Quot i be never known a moral Victory that won a both Muskie and Mcgovern planned to leave Here by chartered planes today and after stopovers in new York and Washington respectively to head for Florida where Alabama gov. George c. Wallace Humphrey. Mayor John y. Lindsay of new York and Jackson among others Are already campaigning for next tuesdays primary. The Early new Hampshire returns. From the Industrial cities of Portsmouth and Somersworth on the Maine Border gave Muskie a 2-to-l Lead Over Mcgovern.
