Lindsay seeks Oregon backing
for Rockefeller write-in vote

Huong submits



By The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. - New York
Mayor John V. Lindsay appealed
yesterday to Oregon Republicans
for thousands of write-in votes to
promote the cause of Gov. Nel-
son Rockefeller in Tuesday's Pres-
idential primary.
Lindsay said Rockefeller's na-
tional organization began with
his campaign mission to Portland
and to Oregon university cam-
He said if the New York gove-
ernor can claim 10 per cent of the
Oregon vote it would be "very
useful" in the Rockefeller effort
to win the nomination.
But the battle was only of per-
centages, with promoters of Rock-

efeller and the organization of
another absentee, California Gov.
Ronald Reagan, acknowledging
Nixon would win easily.
A Nixon lieutenant said the
goal of the former vice president
is to outpoll the combined total
of Reagan and Rockefeller.
He said Nixon has been advised
there is no doubt this majority
can be attained. In past prima-
ries, the Nixon showing has sur-
passed announced goals. In the
Nebraska primary he gathered 70
per cent of the votes:

SAIGON (M--Premier-designate Tran Van Huong sub-

The list had a majority of Buddhists and Vietnamese of
southern origin, informants said.
This was regarded as a setback for the minority of refu-

who have long played a dominant role in the regime.
Huong has been engaged in intensive backstage bar-

HHH on the farm
KANSAS CITY-The country is
so wrapped up in problems of
She cities it is paying too little
attention to an equally serious
crisis in rural areas, Vice Presi-
dent Hubert H. Humphrey de-
clared last night.
Humphrey said, "We make a
great mistake when we recognize
the cities' problems as a crisis, be-
cause they are concentrated, and
then pay too little attention to
the equally acute scattered crisis
in rural America."
He contended one big reason
for city strife is that nearly eight
million persons have migrated
from rural areas to urban centers
in the last 17 years, because they
couldn't earn a decent living on
farms or in snall towns.
"You and I are in two busi-
nesses where it doesn't pay to cry
over spilt milk," the Vice Presi-
dent quipped, "although there
seem to be quite a few spilt milk
politicians doing a lot of thatI
kind of crying right now."

The new information minister,

The paper had editorials against

WASHINGTON U l-Heavy rain
that left Resurrection City, U.S.A.,
deep in mud yesterday forced
leaders of the Poor People's Cam-
paign to evacuate temporarily
some of the shantytown residents.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, Resur-
rection City manager, said space
for 2,000 of the camp's 2,400 resi-
dents was found in nearby church-
es and homes if needed.
Plans called for evacuation of
'women and children first. By
noon, at least one busload had
left the camp.
Jackson described the condi-
tions as "rather deplorable." The
mud is four to five inches thick,
he said.
He also said there is a need
for more temporary accpmmoda-
tions outside the camp area to
house inhabitants until conditions
Jackson said demostrators would
return to Capitol Hill where 18
were arrested Thursday in the
first group arrest since the cam-
paign began. He also said a pray-
er vigil would be mounted at the

not going to be a leader that sends

who "leads people to jail."
