Moderate Republicans Launch
Rockefeller Presidential Drive

HHH Pledges To Sustain
Administration's Policies

WASHINGTON (/)-A band of
Republicans who want Nelson A.
Rockefeller nominated for the
White House embarked yesterday
on a new effort to put the New
York governor atop the GOP
ticket.
Sen. Thurston B. Morton of
Kentucky said that within a
month the latest Rockefeller effort:
will show signs of overtaking for-
mer Vice President Richard M.
* Nixon.
But an official of Nixon's
campaign organization said he is
not alarmed at the formation of
a new Rockefeller for President
Student Leader
Shot In Berl it
BERLIN UP) - Demonstrators
angered by the street shooting of
a firebrand leftist student leader,
Rudi Dutschke, set fire to a ga-
* rage of the Springer publishing
concern with Molotov cocktail
bombs earlystoday.
Dutschke was shot and critical-
ly wounded yesterday afternoon
on West Berlin's main street, 'the
Kurfuerstendamm, and his al-
leged assailant was wounded and.
captured by police.'
Demonstrators then massed for
a renewed march on the publish-
ing firm as flames shot into the
sky from the garage, opposite the
p blishing house's main building.
More than 1,700 policemen used
night sticks to clear the streets
for firemen. A police spokesman
estimated the nunber of demon-
strators at 3,000 to 5,000.
Dutschke was shot in broad
daylight as he was leaving the
offices of his Socialistic Student
Federation - SDS.;

Committee, headed by J. Irwin1
Miller of Columbus, Ind. Miller
is chairman of the Cummins En-
gine Co.
"We are confident that a true
draft will develop," Miller said
"We are confident that Gov.
Rockefeller will respond to the
draft and become a candidate."
Rockefeller maintains his avail-
ability, but has shunned active
candidacy.
Nixon is alone as a major, ac-
tive contender.

Miller said the organization will
have offices in Washington, New
York, in every state and on more
than 1,500 college campuses.
Morton said he expects up to 20
of the 26 Republican governors
eventually will back Rockefeller.
Replace Agnew Committee
"We're not very concerned
about this," said John Sears, who
is working to secure Nixon dele-
gates in state Republican conven-
tions. "This is not a business
where you stop, start and go-it's
not like basketball."
The new Rockefeller panel re-
places a draft committee that
was headed by Gov. Spiro T. Ag-
new of Maryland. That organiza-
tion folded after Rockefeller's
March 21 rejection of an active
quest for the nomination.

By The Associated Press
Vice President Hubert H. Hum-
phrey, in Baton Rouge on the
brink of plunging into the presi-
dential race, pledged last night
to do "everything I can" to sus-
tain and carry forward the work
of what he calls the Johnson-
Humphrey administration.
"I ask your help-and the help
of all Americans-in doing this,"
Humphrey said.
His speech was prepared for the
Louisiana AFL-CIO here.
Will Announce Soon
The Vice President, who plans
to announce his candidacy after
Easter, made it clear he intends
to run on the record of the present
Democratic administration.
"I intend to stand up for the
promises we have kept. I intend
to take our message to the coun-

try - an affirmative, positive,
hopeful message," he said.
Humphrey called for national'
unity at home and abroad and
said: "We must put our 'differ-
ences behind us."
"We must once and for all break
through the chains of narrow per-
sonal interest, of suspicion, of
misunderstandings that divide us,"
he said.
Organization Announced
In Washington, former President
Harry S. Truman was named hon-
orary head of a Democratic group
formed yesterday to gain the nom-
ination for Humphrey.
Sen,nWalter F. Mondale of Min-
nesota announced the founding of
United Democrats for Humphrey
and the conviction of its sponsors
that the Vice President will "de-
clare his candidacy in the near
future."

Names Organizers
Miller named 32 organizers of
the latest Rockefeller committee,
including three senators, four
governors and three House mem-
bers. It also includes 14 business
leaders. Eugene R. Black, former
president of the World Bank, was
named treasurer.
Morton said the group will
strive to mobilize electoral college
delegates for Rockefeller, to show
the New. York governor that he
has bfoad support in the party.
"We'll do it in four weeks,"
Morton said. "We'll have more
delegates lined up in four weeks
than a mule can haul."
Morton also said the Rockefeller
backers are counting on eventual
support from states in which the
delegations are to be led by fa-
vorite son candidates.
He said Rockefeller is aware of
every move the group is making.
"He's pleased with the organi-
zation of this committee," Miller
said.
However, Morton said the group
is not starting a stop-Nixon move-
ment.
Earth-Shaking Events
"The unforeseen and earth-
shaking events of recent days,
have, in a sense, stopped all the
declared candidates in t h e i r
tracks," he said.
