WASHINGTON (FP) - Sen. Eu-
gene J. McCarthy displayed a
marked coolness yesterday toward
a possible presidential bid by Sen.
Robert F. Kennedy and said that
it might split opponents of the
Vietnam war and help renominate
McCarthy said he expects Ken-
nedy to enter the Democratic
presidential race within days.
"It would make it a little less
likely that we would have strength
on the first ballot," he said.
McCarthy said his supporters
are standing firm behind him and
he showed his determination to
stay in, the race by announcing
he will run in two more presi-
dential primaries, in Indiana on
May '7 and South Dakota on
Kennedy refused to add any-
thing to his announcement that
he is reassessing the situation.
"'m not -having anything further
to say," he told reporters outside
Aides to the New York Demo-
crat have said he will reach his
decision by a week from Friday,
which is the deadline for with-
drawal from the May 28 Oregon
The aides had also indicated
Kennedy might enter other pri-
maries, if he decides to run, but
McCarthy moved quickly to get
into these races ahead of the New
y May Spli
In announcing he will enter the
Indiana and South Dakota pri-
maries, McCarthy said he is do-
ing so because "neither President
Johnson nor Richard M. Nixon,
now the leading Republican can-,
didate, offer Americans a real
choice or a real alternative."
"'The issues, therefore, must be
raised in as many primary elec-
tions as possible to ensure that as
many voters as possible can ex-
press their wish as to the future
course of America," he said.
McCarthy said Wednesday he
thought a Kennedy candidacy,
based on approximately the same
platform as his, might confuse
matters. He was asked by report-
ers yesterday if he thought Ken-
nedy's entry would split the peace
movement. "I think it would," he
He was then asked if he
thought Johnson's chances of re-
nomination would be enhanced by
a Kennedy candidacy. He shook
his head and repeated, "I think

McCarthy might win that race,'
and McCarthy said he expects to
win. An informed source said

Watching" anti-Johnson votes
for the Wisconsin contest.
Both were used in New Hamp-
shire, where McCarthy polled 42
per cent of the Democratic vote
and won 20 of 24 convention dele-
McCarthy was asked, both by
reporters and by students wheth-
er he would withdraw from the
race in favor of Kennedy.
"It's hard for me to persuade
people -- I think they like a cred-
ibility gap," McCarthy told the
students. "I have said at least 20
times - I don't have in mind a
He said he had conferred by
phone with many of his support-
ers and they assured him they
were standing firm. "They have
no intention of yielding any
ground," he said. "The flags are
all flying today."
Student Lawyers Help Poor
In Asserting Legal Rights
Rash on Gold Threatens

"I'm surprised that someone is
on my side," comments one of
over 300 indigents who have bene-
fitted from the counsel of a stu-
dent-lawyer from the Washtenaw
Legal Aid Clinic.
Others expressed satisfaction
that their student-lawyers pre-
ferred to help them assert their
legal rights rather than try and
solve their family problems.
The legal aid clinic provides law
students with the chance to gain
actual courtroom experience while
offering to indigent litigants legal
counsel they might not otherwise

dents acting as counsel under the
direction of attorney George
Stewart, the clinic director.
The last quarter of 1967 saw
316 new cases opened up by the
clinic. Family matters are the
usual issue - divorce, custody of
children and legal support are the
most common. They might also
deal with legal contracts, bank-
ruptcy,, or eviction cases.
Who may benefit from the
service is determined by income
and income-related c r I t e r i a.
There is a standard income cut-
off, with allowances\made for

age, and debts.

The last time Britain closed its

Students are not normally al-
lowed to practice in courts with-
out a degree, but a 1965 Supreme
Court Michigan ruling, Rule 921,
permits second and third year
students to defend the poor at the
discretion of local courts.
Jackson County courts permit
students to practice unaccompan-
ied, but courts in Washtenaw
County require the students to
practice only under the direction
of an attorney. Stewart most oft-
en does that, although two more
lawyers are being hired.
Stewart says the students are
doing an effective job. "They suf-
fer naturally from lack of exper-
ience, but work well because oi
the time and interest they are
willing to devote to their cases."
