Romney Meets with Backers
During New Hampshire Trip

Master Director Shows How It's Done

Michigan Gov. George Romney,
Istered by fresh evidence of al-
giance from one of New Eng-
nd's two Republican governors,
ntinued yesterday to test the
litical waters in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire will be holding
e nation's first presidential pri-
ary next year.
In between ,conferences with
ssible supporters and state GOP
aders, Romney met with New
igland's other Republican gov-
nor, John A. Volpe of Mas-
chusetts, a potential opponent,
the March 12' primary.
Romney has said he' would
ather not have" Volpe enter the
ew Hampshire race, but added
e final decision is Volpe's. Volpe
s indicated interest in being a
gional favorite son candidate.
Rhode Island Gov. John H.
hafee, sporting a blue "Romney

'68" button on a light line suit,
stood beside Romney at a social
outing with New Hampshire news
executives Thursday night and re-
peated his faith in Romney's abil-
ity to win.
"He's a great winner," Chafee
said. "And Republicans are looking
for someone who can win the elec-
tion. The moderates in the party
should count their blessings that
they have some one like Romney."
Romney, who has been in New
Hampshire since Tuesday night on
a "work play" vacation to meet
would be backers, said he has "en-
joyed thoroughly this New Hamp-
shire visit. It's great to sit down'
and have a two way discussion."
At a news conference on the
porch at the summer home of Mr.
and Mrs. J. Willard Marriott, his
hosts, Romney gave his views on

attempts to reach a settlement of
the war in Vietnam.
He said the South Vietnamese
should be encouraged to "break
the disenchanted nationalists in
the Viet Cong away from the hard
core Communists."
"I think we should encourage
the South Vietnamese, at any
auspicious point, to be willing to
undertake negotiations with the
Viet Cong," he said.
"I think a satisfactory negotia-
tion would have to include the
Viet Cong giving up terror as a
political weapon and also severing
relationships with organizations
outside of South Vietnam."
Romney said his decision to
enter the primary would be based
on the "attitude of the people"
and the attitude of the members,
of the Republican party.
Hugh Humphrey of Lansing, pub-
lic relations director of the Repub-
lican State Central Committee, has
said the New Hampshire primary
might be an appropriate place and
time to settle the birthplace ques-
tion of Romney's presidential eli-
Humphrey made the statement
before some 100 Battle Creek Ki-
wanians Thursday.
Romney, was born in Mexico.
The U.S. Constitution requires that
a president must be a "natural
born" citizen of the U.S.
There has been division of opin-
ion on what this means.
Humphrey said the birthplace
question should be brought in a
"friendly suit" in a New Hamp-
shire court "as soon as he Romney
decides to file for the New Hamp-
shire primary."

Last night at the Cinema Guild,
one of Hitchcock's earlier films
was shown. Entitled "Foreign Cor-
respondent," it was made during
the World War II era. As an in-
dividual who participated strong-
ly in our war effort, Hitchcock
was asked to produce films that
would strengthen American feel-
ing for the war. The answers to
these requests came in the form
of "Foreign Correspondent" and
"Lifeboat," another movie from
this period.
In these films Hitchcock, the
consummate artist, must hedge the
great ambiguity that an artist's
vision of life presents. For, from
his normal perspective, no simple
answers naturally appear, and all
questions elicit the dual response
of the oracle. How could he sat-
isfy both these impulses, then -
his moral commitment to combat
Naziism by depicting a clear-cut
evil, and his aesthetic commitment
to preserve the artistic vision in
all its complexity?
In this picture Hitchcock uses
as his vehicle the very issue of
patriotism, perhaps because his
patriotic duties were extracting so
much from him. The American
correspondent, an anti-social, self-
immersed reporter, is instructed to
cover the imminently explosive
European diplomatic scene. He is
so unconcerned with the memen-
tous issues of the times that he
cannot comprehend his editor's in-
tent at first. His main concern
is his expense account, which soon
gives way to a larger obsession,
his dedication to the story.
When he arrives in England he
meets his predecessor, a man who
lacks a dedication to anything but
the grossest forms of self-indulg-
ence, and our reporter looks good
in comparison. But the strength
of McCrae's devotion is immedi-

We see McCrae and his friend

considertion of who deserves
more to live, a traitor who, afterall
will probably be executed, or any
of the other passengers. Blood is
thicker for the correspondent than
water. The camera cuts to show us
the suicidal mission of the pilot
and co-pilot, who must guide the
plane nose down into the sea for
the greater safety of the pas-
sengers. We see a young blonde
die as the water rushes in the ship,
possibly because McCrae has not
screamed to all the passengers what
he knows must be done for safety,
l orders to go to the tail of the
plane before impact. And finally
lwe see McCrea break the age old
custom of chivalry to old women
by getting his party out first so
that the old girl barely has time
to leave the ship safely.
But as the film closes Hitchcock,
in complete control of his work,
nulls together the strands of the
story to accomplish his more prac-
tical goal. We leave the film with
th4 warm feeling we are supposed
to have because we have forgotten
that we had seen a newsboy car-

"War Erupts" just before we wit-

U.S. Bombing of N.


NEW YORK (P)--The churches
are generating a swelling chorus
in behalf of peace in Vietnam,
many of them calling for a halt
to the American bombing of North
Those urging an end to the
bombardment range from Pope
Paul VI to a growing succession of
Protestant denominational con-
ventions, in addition to the Inter-
denominational National Council
and World Council of Churches.
However, some communions
have voiced support of U.S. policy
in the war. Others have appealed
for renewed efforts at negotia-
Stop Troop Buildup
Several have asked a stop by
both sides to troop buildups. Some
have simply raised an anxious
question mark.
It is a gnawing issue at meet-
ings of governing bodies of the
churches which assert a responsi-
bility to reinforce the moral stance
of the nation.
The subject also has caused
sharp debate and keen friction in
many religious bodies, including
the withdrawal of at least one
Jewish congregation from its na-
tional organization.
From several religious quarters,
including the Methodist Council of
Bishops, have come calls for a
world summit meeting of reli-

gious leaders to join their influ-
ence in seeking to end the South-
east Asia conflict.
Also urging such an assem-
blage is Rabbi Dr. Marc H. Tan-
enbaum, of the American Jewish
Committee. He says it could "sym-
bolize dramatically that the uni-
versal conscience of the people
of the world cries out for an end
to the war."
If the war continues much
longer, predicts the Rev. Dr. John
C. Bennett, president of New
York's Union Theological Semi-
nary, "we shall have the 'great-I
est conflict between the churches'
and our government that we have
ever had in time of war."
However, the war also produc-
ed sharp differences between
churches, and in them.
American Roman Catholic bish-
ops have cited these differences,
saying the U.S. position could be
reasonably justified, but adding
their "plea for peace."
The big Southern Baptist Con-'
vention last month backed con-
tinued U.S. military efforts in
Vietnam until "an honorable and
just peace" could be established.
Support American Policy
Earlier, the Standing Confer-
ence of Eastern Orthodox Bishops
expressed support for American
policy in the war, saying it "is
directed against the spreading of
totalitarian, atheistic ideology and
is justified as such."
However, numerous other de-
nominations, in conventions this
spring . and early summer, have
criticized conduct of the war.
The United Presbyterian Church
in the U.S.A. voiced "deep mis-
givings at the policy of military
escalation" and said, "It appears
that the immediate need is an al-
ternative to the bombing of North

The American Baptist Conven-
tion urged the United States to
"stop the bombing" and asked both
sides to halt "the buildup of
troops" in the south.
Pope Paul declared recently it
was "necessary that bombing over
the territory of the north should
cease and at the same time the
infiltration of arms and war ma-
terials into the south."
The policy making General
Board of the National Council of
Churches, a cooperative body of
34 American denominations with
a total of 42 million members,
called the bombing of the north
"a block to negotiations."
Urge UN Action
"We therefore ask the U.S. gov-
ernment to stop this bombing,"
the board staid, and also urged
that the war issues be submitted
to "collective, internationalhjudg-
ment and action through the
United Nations.
The Executive Committee of the
World Council of Churches, that
includes 223 member denomina-
tions with a total of more than
350 million members, similarly
called for a bombing halt.
Last fall, the National Council
of Roman Catholic Bishops, in cit-
ing differences among church peo-
ple "over the moral issues involv-
ed in this tragic conflict," said,
"While we can conscientiously sup-
port the position of our country
in the present circumstances, it is
the duty of everyone to seek other
"We are also bound always to
make sure that our government
does, in fact, pursue every possi-
bility which offers even the slight-
est hope for a peaceful settle-
The statement drew criticism
from Catholic peace groups, who
called it weak in contrast to papal
utterances against the war.
