(AP Wirephoto) Ted Puts Future On Line; National Reaction Divided By JAMES POLK HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) Sen. Edward M- Kennedy has put his fabled political future on the line before a divided public af- ter a pretty secretary's death that left haunting questions still unanswered today. Ruination Talk Kennedy amounted Friday night he may resign from the U.S. Senate if Massachusetts voters have lost confidence in him because of the car accident which killed his young blonde passenger on a lonely Island road a week ago. The first spelling tide of tele- grams and telephone calls in his home state ran strongly in sup- port of tie senator. But across the nation, (he doubts lingered. "I still trust him. But 1 doa't think a lot of people said a college student in Pittsburgh. Kennedy, in a national tele- vision appearance, said there is "co truth vhatevrr" to uglji rumors of immoral conduct that shadow the accident "Nor was I driving under the influ- ecce of he added. Kennedy told a dramatic sto- ry of a night of tragedy and hor- ror in which he twice brushed against the very brink of death, of nearly becoming the third brother to die in sudden calami ty while at a pinnacle of Ameri can political power. And in those terrible mo- ments, he said, he questioned whether some awful curse did actually hang over all the Ken- nedys." y The 17-year-old senator told of the water rushing into his lungs as he fought to escape his sunk- en car after it plunged off a bridge, into an estuary. And he said he nearly drowned again as he swam across a channel from the Island to the village where he had been staying. This was the first explanation of how Kennedy got off the is- land in the nine hours between Study Lunar Samples JL e accident and the time he alked into the police station in jlgartown to report the death. the swim seemed to raise ore new questions instead of uieling old ones. Kennedy appeared on national elevision on the same day he leaded guilty in court to leav- the scene of an accident. A wet-month sentence was sus- pended and be was placed on rotation for one year. The senator said his failure to eport the accident immediately as "indefensible." He said he was confused, tortured, tired. He indicated he still did not re- member all that happened In be nine-hour period. In Berkeley Heights, N.J., the mother of the victim, Jfrs. Jo- eph Kopechne, came out onto a .eighbor's front porch after the iroadcast to say in a halting oice "I am satisfied. with the enator's do ope he decides to stay in the >enate." Kennedy's fellow Democrats ailed.the speech. Republicans fere generally silent.
