WASHINGTON (CP) Ed- mund Muskie's campaign for Ihe presidency proved to be rich in financial backing and politi- cal endorsements but poor in is- sues, organization and, most im- porlanl of all, volts. The senator from Maine, who dropped oul of aclive campaign- ing today, blamed a g r o w- ing shortage of money for his decision. By his own staff's accounting, he had collected more than million in campaign funds, but he had spent all of it and went several hundred thousand dol- lars into debl without making a noticeable, dent n what proved to be stubborn public indiffer- ence. Nor did it help Muskie much lo have received the backing of an array of recognized political leaders. Nineteen senators, 34 congressmen, nine governors and many of the Democratic party's senior figures gave him their blessing without being able to influence the vote stgnifi- can'.ly in their home slales. Other candidates appeared to overshadow Muskie on key is- sues. George Wallace of Alabama won anti-busing voles, Senator George MeGovorn cap- tured the anti-war votes and both men capitalized on wide- spread voler disillusion "establishment" policies and leaders. Former vice-president Hubert Humphrey buill an effective grass-roots organization with Ihe help of organized labor, older party officials and minori tics while McGovern's cam- paign learn was staffed by young people and suburbanites. Muskie, on the olher hand, re- lied on established stale polili- cians who failed lo rally sup- port. In addition, his personal campaign staff was reported lo Hunt for parrot SYDNEY, Australia (Roller) A learn of researchers from Sydney Technical College will search Ihe Simpson Desert this month for Ihe green Australian night parrot.

The crucial blow to his cam- one lhal is still not nearly Ihe dis- appearance of his public sup- porl. Muskie's early leadership in the Democratic race was not, as some commentators now hint, an invention of the media or of Muskie's staff. It had been amply confirmed in public-opin- ion polls over a period of months and Muskie had won several elections" over President Nixon conduclcd by polling organizations. SPKEAI) TOO THIN When the campaigning began in earnest, however, Muskie slipped. His apparent loss of stature after an emotional allack on n New Hampshire newspaper pub- lisher is often blamed for S2t- ling the process in motion. Of more significance was probably his basic decision to spread himself across all o! the primaries in a punishing sched- ule, while his opponents setecied their best prospects and shared the task of knocking Muskie's lead apart. The Muskie strategy had been to wrap up the nomination early. The dale he had in mind was April 25, by which time his staff believed Ihe opposition would be railed. Instead, by the deadline, Muskie had only proved [hat he was nearly every Democrat's second ciioice. If delegates at the parly con- vention cannot agree on a can- didale, Ihe second-choice figure could become generally atlrac- tivc. In the meanlime Muskie has moved lo Ihe sidelines lo nurse his wounds and fry to res- lore his stature.
