WASHINGTON (A) - Sen.
Eugene J. McCarthy endorsed
Hubert H. Humphrey for presi-
dent yesterday but fired fresh
criticism at Democratic -party
leaders and the Chicago con-
,vention where he lost the presi-
dential nomination.
In a statement ending his
sustained refusal to back Hum-
phrey after the latter wrested
the nomination from him last
August, McCarthy called on his
supporters to vote for the vice
president as he said he plans to
do.
But the Minnesota senator
left open the possibility that he
might quit the party.
McCarthy did not foreclose
the possibility that he would
seek re-election to the Senate
in 1970 or a presidential nom-
ination two years later under
some other political banner than
the Democratic standard.
He did so by declaring: "I will

not be a candidate of my party
for re-election to the Senate
from the state of Minnesota in
1970. Nor will I seek the presi-
dential nomination of the Dem-
ocratic party 'in 1972."
In saying he would vote for
Humphrey against GOP nomi-
nee Richard M. Nixon, he called
on those who supported his ef-
fort to win the Democratic nom-
ination to do likewise.
But he said he wanted to
make it clear that his endorse-

accepted the rosier side of luke-
warm endorsement and said it
will have a "decided effect" on
his presidential campaign.
The Democratic presidential
contender learned of his former
rival's announcement that he
intends to vote for Humphrey as
he took part in a local tele-
vision program.
"I'm a happy man this morn-
ing in terms of his support,"
Humphrey said of the man who
had contested him for the Dem-
ocratic presidential nomination.

Humphrey said he expects
"lots of undecided votes to come
our way" in the last days before
th? election. "There are a lot
of Democrats coming back to
the party. The McCarthy an-
nouncement will have a decided
effect."
The vice president, appearing
oil a Pittsburgh television show,
said that he had predicted all
along that McCarthy would
eventually support him because
of their long personal connec-
tions and the friendship of their
families.
Humphrey said the last time
he had talked to McCarthy was
by telephone last Sunday.
Humphrey was asked why it
had taken so long for McCarthy
to express his support..
The vice president said that
his Minnesota colleague had
gone through a long ordeal and
it takes"a long time for wounds
to heal."

Democratic National chairipan
Lawrence F. O'Brien, Humphrey's
campaign manager, said in ad-
vance of McCarthy's announce-
ment that "it ,will be nice to
have Sen. McCarthy aboard."
O'Brien would not speculate
on the impact of McCa'thy's
announcement. He noted, how-
ever, that most of the leaders of
McCarthy's drive for the presi-
dential nomination already had
come over to Humphrey's camp.
David Hoeh, the -man who
headed the New Hampshire'
presidentialprimary campaign
for McCarthy; said he, doesn't
consider the senator's announce-
ment that he'll vote for Hubert
H. Humphrey a real endorse-
ment of the Democratic presi-
dential nominee.
Hoeh said he had expected
McCarthy to say what he said
today. But he added that Mc-
Carthy's statement in Washing-

)ems
ton "was hardly an endorse-
ment."
Hoeh said: "The statement
makes clear that he's taking a
position that the kind of pres-
sure, he applied will continue to
be applied, that is to square the
policies of the government with
what the people are demand-
ing."
Hoeh said the so-called "hard-
liners"-people who strongly en-
dorsed Humphrey-will feel "set
aside."
But he added that "realistic-
ally, he made the right state-
ment" and that those wanting
to bring about changes by work-
ing within 'the political party
system will welcome McCarthy's
statement.
Hoeh, of Hanover, a congres-
sional candidate in the 2nd Dis-
trict, said that at the moment
"the problem is one of "defeating
the LeMay-Wallace-Agnew-NiX-
on combination.'

See text of McCarthy statement, page 2

inent is "in no Ivay intended to
reinstate me in the good graces
of the Democratic leaders nor in
any way to suggest my having
forgotten or condoned the things
that happened both before Chi-
cago and at Chicago."
In Pittsburgh, Vice President
Hubert H. Humphrey joyfully

then withheld his support until
one week before Election Day.
"I say thank you. Gene,"
Humphrey beamed, seeming to
ignore McCarthy's statement
that he continues to be dissatis-
fied with Humphrey's position
on the Vietnam War and other
matters.

DETROIT-Sporadic confrontations, fistfights, and scuf-

than 200 police turned George Wallace's final Michigan cam-
paign into chaos last night at Cobo arena.
Police arrested 10 persons on charges ranging from
inciting to riot to spitting on an officer. Two were booked for
resisting arrest.
Heads were bloodied during the chair-swinging, fist-
throwing melee. The Associated Press reported an undeter-

problems of maintaining the traditional open

Open competition is more costly and less
efficient than granting awards by invita-
tional recruitment. However, the suspension
of open competition would endanger the
quality of the program, many CIEP of-
ficials have said.
Presently, the papers of all eligible ap-
plicants are reviewed by one of the 42
screening committees. Committee members
are specialists appointed for th° principal
academic disciplines by members of the
Conference Board of Associate Research
Councils. The board is the CIEP parent body.
The CIEP uses the evaluations of t h e
screening committees to make a list of re-
commended candidates. The candidates are
then considered for the particular program
which they applied.
