In Rhode Island where the South Dakota senator never campaigned but relied on his usual spirited Volunteer organization and appearances by his wife Eleanor he polled 41 per cent of the vote. Mcgovern a total was More than the combined sum for Sens. Edmund s. Muskie and Hubert h. Humphrey who finished second and third. In Oregon where he was the Only major candidate to Campaign Mcgovern s percentage hovered at about 50 per cent in an 11-candidate Field. Gov. George c. Wallace beneficiary of a substantial Media Campaign while still hospitalized after being shot eight Days ago was a surprisingly Strong second with Humphrey third.

Mears a political writer sen. George Mcgovern has won the final political warmups and now the democratic presidential game is called California. It could be decisive. The stakes Are High its primary Campaign is costly and difficult and if past performance is a guide California voters May not be persuaded by the preliminaries. There Are 17 presidential primaries behind the campaigners now. They have transformed sen. Edmund s. Muskie from a Winter favorite into a springtime also ran. They have helped catapult South Dakota a Mcgovern out of the Field and into a hefty Lead in terms Ai Delegate commitments. They have awarded sen. Hubert h. Humphrey his first primary victories in a presidential Campaign career that dates Back a dozen years. And they have proved the democratic voter in a mood for protest gov. George c. Wallace has won six primaries and often ran Strong when he lost. The form Chart to Date Mcgovern won tuesday in Oregon and Rhode Island earlier in Nebraska and Massachusetts after his underestimated Campaign took off with Victory in Wisconsin. Wallace was the Victor in Michigan Maryland Florida. North Carolina Tennessee and his own Alabama. Humphreys victories came in Pennsylvania in Ohio narrowly and Over Wallace in West Virginia and Indiana. That leaves Muskie which is just what the primaries did. He won in new Hampshire but Mcgovern began cutting him Down with a Strong showing there. He scored in Illinois then went nowhere. His slim Hopes of nomination now Are pinned to a convention deadlock he is out of the primary Campaign although he edged ahead of Humphrey to run second in Rhode Island tuesday. All through the Long primary season Mcgovern has been doing better than his rivals in collecting delegates awarded outside the primary states.

As in Oregon Wallace used television and radio advertising to Register a relatively Strong so Mcgovern on 2-a say that the committee instructed its politburo to a put into action the program of peace worked out by the 24th Congress and in accordance with the Concrete situation to use various firms and methods to achieve policy Aims. The decree said Tbs politburo was charged to integrate decisions on current tasks of policy with a Long term perspectives and Aims of the struggle for peace Freedom and Independence of Peoples and for social Progress and for All these decades the communist a struggle for peace Freedom has meant the struggle for revolution around the world. The phrase a Freedom and Independence of Peoples has meant what has become known As the a National liberation the 24th Congress was held 13 months ago. It seems Odd that it took from then until now for a decree instructing the politburo to carry out its decisions.
