Johnson got 35 per cent of the vote but had announced sunday he is not a candidate. A was you know this is Only a p r e i i in in Ary Victory a the Minnesota senator said. A we have to go on to primaries in other states some of them perhaps More difficult than this for in those other states Mccarthy will be matched against new York sen. Robert f. Kennedy. Nixon built a towering 80 per cent of the Republican vote to match his showing in new Hampshire a opening primary three weeks ago. He had no real opposition in either race. The former vice president said his showing proved that Wisconsin will be in the Republican column when the White House votes Are counted next nov. 5. With 3,112 of 3,291 precincts counted this was the democratic picture credibility Row hampers peace bid Washington apr presi Dent Johnson a new Vietnam peace offensive is badly entangled in a Row Over credibility that some officials predict May provide a propaganda Bonanza for North Vietnam. Administration officials concede Hanoi could make prop. Ganda profit out of the disclosure that the portion of North Vietnam left open to air attack under Johnson a partial bombing ban is actually much bigger than it appeared to be in the presidents sunday night announcement. Chairman j. W. Fulbright d-ark., of the Senate foreign re lations committee charged he was a misled As to the significance of Johnson a announce ment and added a the stopping of the bombing is of no consequence and certainly not an inducement for the North to come to the conference both Sens. Robert f. Kennedy and Eugene j. Mccarthy Candi dates for the democratic presidential nomination were critical of the policy. Senate democratic Leader Mike Mansfield defending the administration with fainter blame pinned responsibility for any misunderstanding on the state department. He said he knew first hand that Johnson wanted to define the exact line Between the bomb free area and the continuing attack area of North Vietnam. A the was dissuaded by his diplomatic colleagues a Mansfield told the Senate a presumably the state Mansfield did not say whet Here he considered Secretary of state Dean Rusk Johnson Stop diplomatic adviser assistant Secretary William p. Bundy who handles far East affairs or some other official to have responsibility for the insistence on secrecy. In his dramatic address to the nation sunday night Johnson said he had ordered air and naval attacks on North Vietnam stopped a except in the area North of the demilitarized zone where the continuing enemy build up directly threatens a1-lied Forward positions and where movements of troops and supplies Are clearly related to that the president also said a the bulletin Washington apr North Vietnam said today in a broadcast monitored Here it is ready to Send representatives to meet with . Representatives to decide about an unconditional halt of the bombing of the North so that peace talks could begin. A state department spokes Man had no immediate comment on the Hanoi announcement and it was not immediately Clear whether the United states would regard the North vietnamese statement As responding to president Johnson a newest offer. The radio broadcast in the vietnamese language said As translated Here it is Clear that the . Government has not correctly and fully responded to the just demand of dry North vietnamese government of . Progressive opinion and of world opinion. A however on its part the dry government declares its readiness to Send its representatives to make Contact with . Representatives to decide with the . Side the unconditional cessation of bombing and All other War acts against the dry so that talks could the North vietnamese language broadcast arrived More than an hour ahead of a scheduled 11 15 . Est announcement that radio Hanoi had said it was going to make. Presumably the North vietnamese statement was to be an official response to Johnson a move for peace talks which he announced in his sunday night speech. Johnson said sunday night he had ordered air and naval at tacks on North Vietnam stopped a except in the area North of the demilitarized zone where the continuing enemy build up directly threatens Allied Forward positions and where movements of troops and supplies Are clearly related to that Johnson said he had ordered the cutback in the bombing As a unilateral act by the United states to induce North Vietnam to enter into negotiations to end the War. Area in which we Are stopping our attacks includes almost 90 per cent of North Vietnam a population and most of its the wording used by the pres ident created the widespread impression that he was talking about bombing within a Range of 40 or 50 Miles North of the Doz separating North and South Vietnam. There Are heavy troop concentrations and considerable military activity on both sides of that area. Dispatches from Saigon tues Day disclosed american bombers operating under the new policy had carried out heavier than Ordinary raids throughout the so called North Vietnam pan handle and had particularly struck at Thanh Hoa 210 Miles North of the Doz and just a few Miles below the 20th parallel. Some hours later the defense department finally confirmed that the bombing limit set by the presidents order was indeed the 20th parallel. In an Evi Dent Effort to soften the Impact of this official word the defense department claimed that 90 per cent of the attacks since the new policy went into effect sunday night Washington time had been limited to within 60 Miles of the Doz. Some state department officials argued privately that the 200-plus mile Range of continued bombing along the narrow strip of North Vietnam a Southern projection would not have any effect on the North vietnamese governments reaction to presi Dent Johnson Scall for a Favora. Ble reply and a responsive move to scale Down the War. Fulbright disagreed sharply with this View As anonymously expressed around the state department. A this is not going to be a significant inducement to bring about a ceasefire and Confer ence a he said in his Senate speech. A most people in this country had a different impression of the size of the no bombing area sunday Fulbright said he had called the president sunday night to congratulate him on his bombing limitation and a Call for peace talks but added a i was Mansfield said he spent three hours with president Johnson last wednesday while the policy decisions and formulation of the speech were underway. Nixon Mccarthy 390,204 votes for 57 per cent of the party turnout Johnson 241,866 or 35 per cent. Sen. Robert f. Kennedy the rival Mccarthy will have to overcome if he is to be nominated Drew 6 per cent of the votes. But those were write in votes for his name was not on the ballot. And Kennedy had urged that people who favor him vote for Mccarthy in wis Consin. Nixon a Republican landslide read this Way with 3,094 precincts counted Nixon 371,432, or 80 per cent California gov. Ronald Reagan 48,968, or la per cent habitual candidate Harold e. Stassen 27,281 or 6 per cent. With that Victory Nixon captured 30 Wisconsin votes at the Republican National convention. Mccarthy won 17 democratic votes with his state wide Victory and another 32 by carrying eight congressional districts. Johnson won eight votes for the nomination he said he will not seek or accept by running ahead in two Milwaukee districts including the predominantly negro sections of the states biggest City. Mccarthy won a third District including some Milwaukee suburbs and carried the other 71 counties in the state. Johnson a sunday decision to stand aside and retire from the White House turned the Wisconsin Campaign into a million Dollar exercise with no real con tests. Presumably Johnson could later ask the delegates he won to support an Active candidate possibly vice president Hubert h. Humphrey who is Consil ered a possible successor to administration candidacy. Kennedy campaigning in Philadelphia congratulated Mccarthy Mccarthy a for an outstanding Job in presenting the issues in both Wisconsin and new Hampshire. A i am presenting my Case across the rest of the country a he said. Opposition to president John songs course in Vietnam had been the focus of the Mccarthy Campaign. That Issue was pinpointed in Madison the University City which was a Center of opposition to the War and support for Mccarthy. There a referendum question calling for a cease fire and . Withdrawal was Defeated by a margin of 58 per cent to 42 per cent. Kennedy said the Mccarthy Victory had demonstrated a there is a Good Deal of opposition to the administration pos Ture in Vietnam. The new York senator said he did not think Mccarthy a showing would hamper his own presidential bid. And he said Mccarthy May have benefited a a great deals in Wisconsin from Johnson a sunday rejection of candidacy. Mccarthy did no to see it that Way. A if he had not withdrawn i think we probably would have gotten a heavier crossover of republicans a he said. He said Johnson probably got a bigger slice of the vote than he would have As a Likely candidate. The president never announced the candidacy he spurned but his name was automatically listed in Wisconsin which puts All prospective contenders on the ballot. As it was All signs were that the party crossover was not Large. A Wisconsin voter could choose either party s ballot for there is no formal partisan registration. Senate approves a hike in taxes Washington apr the Senate has voted for hiking taxes while holding Down Federal spending but election year consideration and a parliamentary squabble with the House casts doubts on the final congression-a1 verdict. The Senate voted 57 to 31 tuesday for a Bill combining three major provisions a the to per cent surcharge on income taxes proposed by president Johnson which has been blocked in the House ways and Means committee since last summer. A a $6 billion reduction in Federal spending. A Extension of Federal excise taxes on cars and telephone1 service. Backers of the tax hike spend ing Cut proposal voiced Confidence the Senate a Strong endorsement of the measure boosted prospects for an eventual tax increase and some House members agreed with that anal Ysis. But the Senate vote also demonstrated that most Congress members up for re election this november May not be enthusiastic about voting for a tax in crease. Of the 28 senators expected to seek re election this year 19 voted against tuesdays pack age proposal. This problem is Likely to be accentuated in the House where All 435 members face re election. House and Senate conferees charged with forging a Bill acceptable to both Chambers scheduled their first meeting for late today. Advance word from the House conferees was they would look favourably on few if any of the 18 provisions approved by the Senate. The House traditionally has been jealous of its constitutional prerogative to originate tax measures in its ways and Means committee. Chairman Russell b. Long d-la., of the Senate finance committee manager of the original excise tax Bill said he saw Little Chance the House would accept the package amendments. Other major amendments would a repeal a freeze provision on Federal Matching funds for Aid to families with dependent children included in the 1967 social Security act. A impose quotas on textile product imports chiefly manmade fibres and woolens. A end the tax exemption privilege on Industrial development Bonds effective next Jan. I.
