OKLAHOMA CITY (M)-Two Republican senators warn-
ed against over confidence yesterday as a result of the large
and enthusiastic crowds attracted by Richard M. Nixon in the
first three days of his campaigning for President.
"I want to warn everybody, from the county chairmen on
up, 'Don't sit on your duffs now, boys, and do what we did
in 1948," said Sen. Thurston Morton of Kentucky.
Sen. Edward Brooke of Massachusetts also referred to the
1948 presidential election. He said Nixon should not "play it

PRAGUE ('P)-Soviet trouble-
shooter Vasily V. Kuznetsov met
yesterday with Alexander Dubcek,
the Communist party boss whose
reforms caused Soviet-led occupa-
tion troops to invade Czecho-
slovakia Aug. 20-2 1.
An official announcement said
the two exchanged views on rela-
tions between their two countries.
It did not elaborate.
Kuznetsov, the Soviet Union's
first deputy foreign minister and
a member of the Soviet Commu-
nist party's Central Committee,
arrived here Friday to seek a
political solution to the occupati:2n.
He met that day with Presi-
dent Ludvik Svoboda in what an
official announcement called "a
frank and comradely exchange."
In Communist terminology "frank"
means they disagreed. -
Tass and the Czechoslovak Com-
munist party organ Rude Pravo
gave prominent play to a speech
by Gustave Husak, chief of the
Slovak Communist tparty. It in-
dicated the outlines of a govern-
ment policy acceptable to the

tions he has had to date.
In the 1948 election the Repub-
lican candidate for president,
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New
York, expected to defeat President
Harry Truman long before t h e
election. Republican over-confi-
dence was ascribed as a major
factor in Dewey's defeat.
Morton and Brooke made their
statements in a news conference
in Houston before flying with
Nixon to Oklahoma City.
Meanwhile, Nixon and Brooke
asknowledged that they have dif-
ferences on certain issues. Bu t

on the way to Oklahoma City. He

Nixon's campaign team, and add-

Nixon talked with newsmen and

Brooke is returning to the Sen-
ate next Monday. But Nixon said,
"He will be returning to the cam-
paign in about a week."
"I w i11 do whatever Richard
Nixon, asks me to do," Brooke said.
"I fully support him and will cam-
paign vigorously for him."
Both Brooke and Morton said
they were surprised by the throngs
that turned out to see Nixon in
Chicago, San Francisco, Santa
Clare, Calif., and Houston.
Nixon said in Houston, "These
are October crowds, not Septem-
ber," and he said they portend
a "great Republican groundswell."
In Houston, the crowd was so
great that several thousand peo-
ple, standing on the down side of
a knoll in a park could not even
see the former vice president.
Morton called all this "heady
wine" and he said Nixon would
not let this prevent him "from be-
ing definitive on the issues."
Nixon, in his Chicago question-
and-answer telecast, said he would
not comment on the Chicago dis-
orders because investigations had
been opened both on the federal
and local levels.
