Nixon campaign
hits Philadelphia
M. Nixon rode a campaign, mile
lined by cheering crowds in Dem-
ocratic Philadelphia yesterday. He
claimed victory over Vice Presi-
dent Hubert H. Humphrey in the
battle of the motorcades.
Nixon called the Republican
show "marvelous, marvelous, just
terrific." He said he understood
the turnout was the biggest since
President Franklin L. Roosevelt
appeared here 22 years ago.
Humphrey, the Democratic pres-
idential nominee, staged a Phila-
delphia motorcade 11 days ago in
opening his own campaign. News-
men who covered both affairs said
Nixon had outdrawn his rival.
The GOP 'nominee stood waving
from an open convertible. There

shredded paper as the car ropled
through center city during the
lunch hour.
It was a preface to one of the

At its heaviest, the crowd stood
10 to 12 deep on both sides of the
three lane street, packed between
barricades and stote fronts. From
overhead, Nixon fans tossed show-
ers of shredded paper. Near the
nominee's Philadelphia headquar-
ters, hundreds of colored balloons
were released to soar overhead.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill.-Vice Presi-

to taunt Republican Richard M.
Nixon into a series of television
debates, said yesterday the GOP
presidential candidate's "firm po-
sitions make an ad for Jello look
like concrete."

Time and again, the Democratic
candidate departed from his text
to hammer away at his theme
that Nixon is straddling major is-
But when his enthusiastic audi-
ence lustily booed his first men-
tion of Nixon's name, the vice
president raised his arms for si-
lence and said, "No, no, I don't
ever want a Humphrey supporter
to boo anybody."
He said he wanted to see an
America, the beautiful, and he
added, "You're never very beauti-

Humphrey would like to make a
campaign out of the organized
hecklers who have harassed him at
many of his public appearances.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Making
his final Florida campaign swing,
George Wallace told a icheering
crowd of 10,000 yesterday that, if
elected, he will seek a constitu-

ate reconfirmation of Supreme
Court justices every six or eight

He blasted the Supreme Court,
Republican party, GOP candidate
Richard Nixon and what he called
"groups of anarchists who violate
law and order in America."
A crowd of 10,000 filled t h e
stands and rimmed the sidelines1
of a football field at *the State
Fairgrounds in Tallahassee to
hear Wallace. They cheered fre-
quently, and one group of youths
held up a Confederate flag.
Hitting Republicans and Demo-
crats alike, he said that previous-
ly both parties "called \us crackers,

He said such control had been
taken away by the Supreme Court
and criticized Abe Fortas, whose
appointment as chief justice is
now being reviewed by the Sgnate.
"Mr. Fortas and them said you
can send o bs ce'n e literature
through the mails and see obscene
movies, but you'd better not bow
your head in a public school and
say a prayer," Wallace charged.
Muskie demands

S. Muskie of Maine, Democratic
vice presidential candidate, yester-
day challenged those who question
U.S. involvement in Vietnam to
direct some of their questions at
Richarn M. Nixon, the Repub-
lican presidential nominee.
Speaking to, a mid-day student-
convocation at Wichita State Uni-
versity, Muskie expressed concern
that all the questions being asked
about Vietnam have been directed
at Vice President Hubert H. Hum-
phrey and himself.
The senator noted that Nixon
has said he will not' discuss the
Vietnamese situation because of
the negotiations in Paris but that
he would talk about "the past."
There was applause from the
primarily student audience when
he said the Geneva accords were
drawn during a Republican ad-

MANILA () -- Filipino students
demonstrated outside the U.S.
Embassy Friday night, protesting
a statement by a State Depart-
ment spokesman that the United,
States recognizes Sabah as part
of Malaysia. President Ferdinand
E. Marcos summoned U.S. Ambas-
sador G. Mennen Williams to
clarify the American stand.
Marcos signed a bill Wednesday
annexing the Malaysian state in
North Borneo on the ground that
it actually was Philippines terri-
tory until the sultan of Sulu ceded
part of it to the British in 1.78.
Britian has supported Malaysia
in rejecting the Philippines claim
to t h e territory, which became'
part of the Malaysian federation
when it w a s formed of former
British colonies in 1963.
"America has forgotten us,"
said an official 'at the presidential
palace here. The Philippines was a
U.S- possession until after World
War II.$
The demonstration outside the.
U.S. Embassy by about 100 stu-
dents :was orderly. The ,demon-
strators handed out handbills as-
sailing "gratuitous remarks" and
"agents provocateurs in the State
A statement from the presiden-
tial palace in Manila said Presi-
dentpMarcos had called Williams
to a meeting with him Saturday
afternoon for a "formal verifica-
tion and clarification" of the
statement in Washington Thurs-
day by Robert J. McCloskey, State
Department spokesman, that the
United States considers Sabah to
be Malaysian.
The U.S. Embassy said McClos-'
key was merely restating the Am-
erican position taken when Malay-
sia was formed.
"With respect to the claim of
the Philippines on Sabah, the
United States traditionally takes
no position on territorial disputes
as this one."
But Philippines sources said the
statement could be harmful to
U.S.-Filipino relations.;
A palace informant said Marcos
was "deeply hurt" by the State
Department position.
"It cut us adrift," the source
said. "We are not only sentimen-
tal, but much of our military
strength is dependent on the Unit-
ed States and now, with Britain
siding with Malaysia, America has
forgotten us."
Marcos has said the Philippines
has no hostile intentions toward

Malaysia and does not plan to
take Sabah by force.
"There is going to be no war"
he said.
Prime Minister Tunku Abdul
Rahman of Malaysia has also de-
nounced force:
But Rahman has said Marcos'
signing of the annexation bill was
tantamount to aggression.
Philippines officials charged that
Malaysia's' suspension of diplo-
matic relations Thursday was 'a
belligerent act.

The Balkans often have been a
kettle for brewing big trouble for
the world. Will Moscow's current
anger place the area again in that
role? Observers in Europe with a
sense of history do not rule it out.
A new blast from Pravda has
the tone of, a no-nonsense warn-
ing. The paper of the Soviet Com-
munist leadership served notice
that nobody within the Soviet
orbit is permitted to contemplate
or abet any "softening" of Com-
munist party rule. It shook an ad-
monitory finger toward Yugo-
Such articles are carefully re-
viewed by the party before pub-
lication. This one was broadcast
abroad, suggesting that one aim
was to serve notice that Moscow
will tolerate no more Czechoslo-
The article harshly scolded
Yugoslavia, as if to stress that the
Kremlin's patience has limits.
Yugoslavia right now' is out of
reach of the long Russian arm so
far as conventional forces are
concerned, having no border with
Russia. It would not be out of
reach if the Russians persuaded
Romania that it needed a Soviet
military presence.
Between the lines in authori-
tative Soviet press organs there
are signs of Kremlin edginess as
Yugoslavia, Romania and even
tiny, maverick Albania confront
the Russians. Yugoslavia criti-
cizes the occupation of Czechoslo
Nakia. iRomania's gestures suggestl
anti-Soviet overtones.
"The program of the League of
Communists of Yugoslavia says
bluntly that the 'leading political
role of the League . . . would in
the future disappear gradually.'
This line is being pursued ever
more actively of late . . . This
theory and practice of the League
of Communists of Yugoslavia serv-
ed to a large extent as an example'
that inspired revisionist elements
in Czechoslovakia."
Yugoslavia was, in fact, a model
for Czechoslovaks seeking to re-
move the oppressive weight of the
Communist bureaucracy f r o m
their economy.
Romania is far from denying a
"leading role" for its party, which
operates a tight ship. Albania's

party has total dictatorship. But1
both irk Moscow in other ways.
Romania carries on an indepen-
dent foreign policy which includ-
es relations with Bonn and thus'
in the Soviet view permits the
West Germans to penetrate East-
ern Europe. Albania constantly
reviles the "Soviet revisionists"
from behind its Chinese shield.
The Kremlin has been making.!
threatening gestures toward West
Germany. This does not neces-
sarily mean any overt action to-
ward intervention, since that could
open the way to a general war
situation in Europe.
West Germany seems to be used
by Moscow in this instance as a
foil, an excuse for the occupation
of Czechoslovakia and sounding
board for warnings to the rest of
Eastern Europe.
The Balkans, however, could be
a different 'matter. It is wholly
clear to all Eastern Europe that
nobody sprang to the aid of
The, Romanians and Yugoslavs
thus now might be asking them-
selves: What is there to stop the
Russians if they decide to squelch
all the irritations inside their
orbit? ,

PRAGUE ( P)-The official radio
of Czechoslovakia's Communist
government reported yesterday
that citizens queried in a public
opinion poll were 100 peracent in
favor of Soviet-led occupation
troops leaving their country.
The Russians and four Warsaw
Pact allies occupied Czechoslo-
vakia one month ago, Aug. 20, to'
check a drive toward liberaliza-
The question asked in the poll
was: "Do you regard the departure
of foreign armies as a necessary
condition of our peaceful devel-
opment?" ,
Radio Prague said .864 people
had been questioned in the north-
ern town of Usti, chpsen as a.
typical Czechoslovak community.
Of these: 783 expressed full
confidence in the liberal Com-

m.unist party leadership of Alex-
ander Dubcek; 671 were convinced
that policy could be continued in
the same direction as before the
invasion; 526 accepted the agree-
ments signed in Moscow Aug. 26
as the only way: out of the situ-
On the question of ending the
occupation, the radio said the
answers were unanimous. The
date of the poll was not given.
Dubcek and' other ,leaders 'had
been expected togo to Moscow
again yesterday. But officials re-
ported the trip had been post-
poned until Tuesday because of
failure to agree on what should
be discussed.
Instead, the top Czechoslovak
leaders went to the international
trade fair at Brno, 115 miles
southeast of Prague, where they
got a big reception.
The last time Dubcek went to
Moscow, just after the invasion,
he was forced to go by the Rus-
sians. Since then he has succeeded
