Harlem Assists in

NEW YORK (WP)-James Mere-
dith withdrew from the congres-
sional race against Adam Clayton
Powell yesterday, apparently be-
cause of a Republican revolt in
Harlem against him. Negro lead-
ers hailed his retirement.
Cora Walker, a GOP leader in
Harlem, said party committeemen
in Powell's 18th Congressional Dis-
trict were in revolt against Mere-
dith's candidacy on the Republi-
can ticket.
Meredith said his dead-of-night
dropout from the April 11 special
election for Powell's old Demo-
cratic House seat, resulted from SEN. THOM

as personal gifts" which he could
spend as he saw fit.
The stipulations-agreed upon
two days ago by Dodd's lawyers
and the Ethics Committee-gave
this financial picture:
-The testimonials and a series
of campaign fund-raising dinners
and drives produced a total of
$470,157.32.
-Deposit of $35,000; $20,915.72;
and $94,869,57 were made from
bank accounts built on the fund-
raising events to accounts in the
names of Dodd and his wife,
Grace.
-Dodd received $11,794.67 in
cash payments, from the fund-
raising events and from individ-
uals.
James P. Boyd, Jr., once admin-
istrative assistant to Dodd, testi-
fied that he had talked with
David Martin, a Dodd assistant,
after the 1964 election, and that
one contributor was to give $10,000

if the senator would help obtain
an ambassadorial appointment for
Abe Spanel of International Latex
Corp.
Boyd quoted Martin as saying of
Dodd: "He said he had just a deal
in whiph Irv Ferman would donate
$10.000 and all the senator had
to do was to do all he could to get
Abe Spahel an ambassadorship.
Ferman would make the contri-
bution and he would be reim-
bursed later by Latex."
Dodd has said he fired Boyd
for misconduct. He contends Boyd,
seeking revenge, turned over to
columnists Drew Pearson and Jack
Anderson documents stolen from
his office files.
The columns that resulted led
to an investigation of Dodd's con-
duct as a senator. But Dodd, who
sought the initial investigation,
still maintains the Ethics Com-
mittee has no mandate to in-
vestigate his finances.

Although Mrs. Gandhi's 19-
member Cabinet contains 11 new
faces, the major portfolios of
home, defense, external affairs
and planing did not change hands.
The most important change was
naming Morari Desai, 71, deputy
prime minister-a title not held by
anyone since independence hero
ardar Patel died in December 1950.
Desai, leader of the right wing
of the ruling Congress party, also
was given back his oldFinance
Ministry portfolio which he re-
signed in 1963 to do organizational
work for the' party.
He was brought ,back into the
government after agreeing to with-
draw his opposition to Mrs. Gan-
dhi's re-election Sunday as leader
of the Congress parliamentary
party.
Mrs. Gandhi's task of forming a
Cabienet was complicated by the
fact that eight ministers in her
old government were defeated in
the February elections.
