Foreign Policy Critique Boosts Romney Car
DETROIT (R) - Gov. George
Roney's unannounced campaign
for the 1968 Republican presiden-
tial nomination expanded signifi-
cantly this weekend with his first
apparently planned plunge into
the foreign policy arena.
The shift marks a sharp depart-
ure from Romney's previous re-
luctance to discuss national is-
sues, particularly the biggest one
-the war in Viet Nam..
Romney suggests that the John-
son Administration may have
placed tog much emphasis on
bombing North Viet Nam as com-
pared with other means of cutting
off supplies moving south from
Romney -and Henry Cabot
Lodge, U.S. ambassador to South

tively taken and still In the form-

At the same time, Romney be-

moral right to try to prevent
North Vietnam from imposing its
will on the south.
The governor, who captured a
third term by landslide in Novem-
ber, has said publicly that he was
not informed enough to speak au-
thoritatively on the Vietnam war.
Simultaneously, however, h e
steadily took steps to become au-
thoritative on Vietnam and other

In Peking, Mao's radio stations
called Monday night on "strayed

The editorial was aimed at fol-

the chief target of the purge. It
apparently did not cover Lu him-

as bourgeois-or anti-Socialist.

Baker, 38, one-time secretary to
the Senate Democrats, is charged
with income tax evasion in 1961-
62, conspiracy and other offenses
involving financial dealings.
Wayne L. Bromley, a Washing-
ton attorney who said he is now
employed and once was a close
friend of Baker, testified that he
carried the "buggin" device on his
person at a meeting in a Los An-
geles hotel room, March 26, 1965.
He said those in the room includ-
ed Baker, Clifford Jones, former
lieutenant governor of Nevada,
The jury was excused from the
courtroom while Bromley gave his
testimony about the bugging.
Later, with the jury back, he
told of receiving checks made pay-
able to him, of cashing them and
turning the money over to Baker.
His testimony included accounts
-Payment of a $5,000 fee to be
split between Baker and Bromley

-Clecks totaling $14,000 from
first Western Financial Corp., Las

to Bromley. On one, he said, he
borrowed the $1,000 from Baker.
-Checks totaling $6,000 from
United States Freight, New York,
also made payable to Bromley
but cashed for Baker, except for
the last one, which the witness
said was cashed by someone else.
