Agnew as his running mate in 1972. Before flying to Chicago Wednesday night, Nixon was asked about a published report that Agnew might be dumped in 1972 in favor of Representa- tive George Bush, provided Bush wins a hotly contested Senate race in Texas. "I'll cover that as I get along In the Nixon re- plied. While his response seemed non-committal, and he never has publicly committed himself to backing Agnew for renomina- tion, the president added a few words certain to encourage the vice-president: "I must "say that he" is one of Stormy Quebec Talks MONTREAL (CP) The Montreal Star, in a report from Quebec, says "stormy cabinet discussions" occurred at the outset of the kidnap crisis in Quebec and on one occasion Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quetts "placed his resignation Worried ;he great campaigners of all I think he is doing a won- derful job." It was understood that Agnew placed a telephone call to the White House after reading the report that he might be side-, tracked.

Girling had his bands full of burglars but still managed to radio for help. On early morning pat- rol, Constable Girling spotted two men. One sat in a stolen car, the other was emerging from a broken supermarket window with a sack full of food. He put a..bear hug on one, grabbed the other by'the arm and while the culprits struggled used a walkie-talkie to radio for assistance. on the table.1 Dominique Gift, the news- paper's political specialist at Quebec, says the justice minis- ter's action was a "gesture of determination on his part, and a move calculated to im- press those who might have been tempted to enter into nego- tiations with the kidnappers." Mr. Cliffs report says that the cabinet was divided at-the time over the attitude to take toward kidnappers' ransom de- mands. He says Premier Robert Bourassa found a solution to the issue by offering safe-conduct for the kidnappers and parole for jailed terrorists eligible for conditional release in return for the safety of the kidnap victims. The report goes on that Claude Eyan, publisher of Le Devoir, "approached several prominent personalities at the time suggesting the Bourassa government was in danger of imminent collapse and that var- ious citizens of note should step forward to pick up the pieces and ensure stable government in the province." The report concludes: "The upshot of the whole inci- dent was an escalation of the anti-nationalist campaign in Ot- tawa and an attempt to dis- credit the small group of intel- lectuals which opposed the War Measures Act." tributed by the Washington Post-Los Angeles Times news service. Agnew wound up his cam- paign of the southern states, hoping to lure Southern Demo- crats into the Republican col- umn. He criticized news media again, telling a crowd of some in Birmingham, Ala., Wed- nesday night: "One word to the supersensl- tive, self annotated, supercil- lious electronic barons of opin- ion and my apologies to the national commentators who do not fit that description.

Wednesday, Nil on wooed Democrats in Texas after tell- ing a Florida audience: "The time has come to quit kicking the South around." His Texas trip included the first presidential campaign visit to Dallas since John F. Ken- nedy was murdered there in 1963 and a speech in Longview hi which he emphasized at- tempts for a Vietnam peace made by President Johnson. Speaking in Dallas, Nixon said he had talked with John- son on the phone earlier. "I told him I knew that he tried, just as I'm trying to bring peace to this country." He was loudly cheered by a crowd estimated at dur- ing a speech at the Market Hall convention centre. Nixon spoke not far from where Kennedy was shot and security was tight for his stay of just under three hours. Heli- copters guarded his motorcade route.
