HHH To Enter
Race Next Week

1 President Hubert H. Humphrey
will plunge into the race for the
Democratic presidential nomina-
tion immediately after Easter.
The vice president now assesses
his chances in a three-way con-
test with Sens. Robert F. Ken-;
nedy (D-N.Y.) and Eugene J. Mc-
* Carthy (D-Minn.) as "looking
He has told friends he is more
encouraged to make the race than
he has to ever been to run for
office in his political life.
The Humphrey canpaign, once
it is launched, -will be aimed at'
* the heart of nomination strength
-the state conventions in which
the majority of convention dele-
gates are chosen.'
The vice president has neither
the money nor the inclination to
go into presidential primaries. In:
line with this he instructed his
4 friends not to enter a delegate
slate for him even in his native
South, Dakota.
Delegate lists for Kennedy and

McCarthy are being organized for
the June 4 primary there. But
Rod Barnes, organizer of a South
Dakota drive for Humphrey, said
in Huron Tuesday he had been
told not to enter any, slate for
the vice president.
Humphrey is personally con-
vinced he will have strong sup-
port from organized labor and the
business community. This has been,
indicated in about 4,000 messages
urging him to run after President
Johnson's announcement that he
would not accept renomination.
The vice president feels he will
have strong support in the South,
which was lining up to back
Johnson before the President said
he would not run.
The vice president thinks the
refusal of some of Johnson's
mainstays, such as Gov. Richard
J. Hughes of New Jersey and
Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago,
to make any commitments to,
candidates after the President's
withdrawal is all to the good, so
far as he is concerned.

of State Dean Rusk said yester-
day this country has seen no sign
of the enemy restraint President
Johnson set as a condition for a
complete halt in the bombing of
North Vietnam.
Rusk commented amidst re-
ports a total halt was under con-

the policy set by Johnson March
31 still stood.
Johnson announced then a
pause in bombing of major areas
of North Vietnam. He added that,

It provides that the old rates

WARSAW--Poland's Communist
party proposed Defense Minister
Marian Spychalski yesterday to
fill the nation's vacant presidency.
He is said to be a supporter of
party chief Wladyslaw Gomulka
in his fight to stay in power.
Spychalski's election was con-
sidered a formality. The 460-mem-
ber Sejm or parliament will have
no other choice beside the 61-
year-old marshal of t-te Polish
armed forces when it votes today.
Several ministerial changes are
also expected.

But Rusk said no final conclu-

noted that North Vietnam has
proposed "a very limited purpose"
for such talks, restricted to a
discussion of the complete sus-
pension of bombing as a prelim-
inary to more inclusive peace
Possible sites for the limited
talks, and other factors in the
situation were discussed by John-
son, Rusk and other U.S. officials
Tuesday and yesterday at Camp
David, Md.
Rusk declined to 'view North
Vietnam withdrawals from the
Khe Sanh area as a de-escalation,
suggesting instead these may
have been caused by heavy casual-

ties from U.S. bombing, rather
than a move to encourage peace
He said U.S. forces were con-
tinuing "normal o p e r a t i o n s
against the enemy, who has not
let up in the slightest degree in
his own operations."
North Vietnam has said that
the purpose of the preliminary
discussions would be to find out
when the United States would end
the bombing of North Vietnamese
territory below the 20th parallel.
All bombing above that line was
h a 1 t e d by presidential order
March 31.
Ending all bombing and "other
acts of war" by the U.S. is Hanoi's
condition for going into full scale
peace talks.

Johnson's purpose in the prelimi-
nary discussions would be to try
to set up suitable arrangements
for getting peace talks started and
