Johnson pledges
to end arms race


UN General Assembly approves
ban on spread of nuclear weapons
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (R) - President Johnson, in a
surprise appearance before the United Nations General As-
sembly yesterday, pledged that the United States will press
all efforts to end the nuclear arms race.
The President delivered a U.S. plea for advances in dis-
armament minutes after the 124-nation assembly endorsed
by an overwhelming majority the U.S.-Soviet, draft treaty to
ban the spread of nuclear weapons.

,McCarthy may oppose HHH

By The Associated Press
Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy held
out the possibility of a post-
convention split yesterday by say-
ing it would be "very difficult" for
him to back Vice President Hubert
H. Humphrey if Humphrey main-
tains his support of U.S. Vietnam
At the same time, McCarthy
told a crowded nevs conference
that he still feels differences on
Vietnaffi and other issues can be
worked out within the Democratic
party and that he has no inten-
tion of leading a third party
Resuming his presidential cam-
paign a week after the assassina-
tion of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy,
the Minnesota senator said he
doubts the accuracy of tabulations
showing Humphrey well in the
lead in terms of firni delegate
strength for the party's August
nominating convention.
"I don't think these counts are
accurate," he said. "I don't think
the degelates have really made up
their minds yet."
McCarthy said his efforts from
now on in\ what he termed "a
limited campaign" will be directed
at delegates and at party office-
holders, both as to the issues and
"what candidate is best likely to

be able to carry those issues to the
At the same time, Gov. Nelson
A. Rockefeller directed an all-
out appeal to American voters
yesterday in the hope of creating
enough popular pressure to over-
come the delegate advantage of
Richard M. Nixon at the Repub-
lican nominating convention.
The governor also hoped, aides
said, to show the men with votes
at the Convention that he can
pick up support from former Ken-
nedy followers.
Meanwhile Nixon won 22 addi-
tional Republican convention
delegates Tuesday night in the Il-
linois primary election.
The returns on the Democratic
side showed 26 of the chosen dele-
gates were uncommitted, 2 were
for Humphrey, 1 was for Mc-
Carthy, and 1 was for Mayor
Richard J. Daley of Chicago.
Daley, the party boss, was among
the uncommitted.
Nixon had 298 delegates votes
of the 667 required for the GOI
presidential nomination in a list-

is doing precisely the opposite
now by keeping Michigan's dele-
gation uncommitted.
Romney is determined to hold
the bulk of the state's 48 votes
away from either Nixon or Rocke-
feeler for the present.
The object, he says, is to await
developments, candidate state-
ments on major issues and pre-
convention polls.
Humphrey and Nixon were the
real victors at the Texas political
conventions Tuesday.
Gov. John Connally, who has
not committed himself but is be-
lieved to favor Humphrey's presi-
dential nomination, was chosen

Then, looking forward to future
progress in disarmament, the
President pledged that the United
States shall "as a major nuclear
weapon power, promptly and vig-
orously pursue negotiations on ef-
fective measures to halt the nu-
'clear arms race and to reduce ex-
isting nuclear arsenals."
Specifically, the P r e si d e n t
pledged that the United States
would begin "early discussions on
the limitation of strategic offen-
sive and defensive nuclear wea-
pons systems."1
In his prepared text he said;this
would take place in the 17-nation

It was in Geneva that the U.S.-
Soviet treaty to ban the spread

out in months of negotations.
Britain took part in the treaty
drafting, and joined the United

urging its endorsement by the
United Nations.
France, also a nuclear power,
stayed aloof from the Geneva
talks, and abstained in the as-

LONDON (R) The -United
States, Britain and France de-
nounced last night Communist
East Germany's new taxes and re-
strictions on West German travel

They said they, would take up
the matter with the Soviet Union.
In Bonn, the West German ab-
inet decided to increase subsidies
to the isolated city and make up
economic losses it suffers from
what some Germans considered
the biggest threat to the city's
economy since' the 11-month Ber-
lin blockade in 1948-49.
The East German measures, ap-
parently approved by the Soviet
Union, drew protests from both
leftist and conservative students
in West Berlin.
Red flag-waving leftists were
turned back by East Berlin border
guards when they tried to deliver
a note to Communist officials, ac-
cusing them of replacing "Social-
ist politics with bureaucratic stip-

A simila statement was issued
in Washington.

lor Kurt George Kiesinger met in
Bonn with the U.S., British and
French ambassadors to discuss a

passports and visas for train, road
and water travel between West
Germany and West Berlin, which
is entirely surrounded by Com-
munist territory.
A family of four driving to West
Berlin now pays a $1.25 -fee. The
new regulations would add anoth-
er $10.
A 20-ton truck load would cost
an added $33.60 and a 400-ton
barge would pay another $100.
The Bonn government estimated
the new taxes and visa fees would
total more than $185 million
The squeeze was seen as another
Communist move to deny West

LONDON (P)-Scotland Yard
delved yesterday into thg myste-
ries of James Earl Ray's stay in
Britain as U.S. officials worked on
their case for the extradition of
the man accused of killing the
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Extradition proceedings could
last two months if the 40-year-old
escaped convict fights all the way
through the British courts.
As a first step, American au-
thorities have obtained a provi-
sional British warrant charging
Ray with the murder of King in
Memphis, Tenn.
A State Department spokesman
in Washington said documents to
support the extradition request
"will be transmitted to London
Ray has been traced to two
London hotels between May 28
and his arrest Saturday, but there
is. an unexplained gap of about

10 days, starting May 17 when he
left Lisbon.
FBI agents were understood to
be working with Scotland Yard
detectives, but British police are
doing the spadework since the
FBI has no legal authority in for-
eign countries.
Police on both. sides of the At-
lantic are trying to untangle
Ray's travels, which took him to
Canada, Britain and Portugal af-
ter King was shot April 4.
Ray was transferred Tuesday to
a maximum security cell in
Wandsworth Prison because Brix-
ton Jail on London's South Side,
was not considered secure enough.
The British police are holding
Ray on charges of using a forged
passport and carrying a loaded
gun. On Scotland Yard's records
he is officially listed as Ramon
George Sneyd, the name on his
Canadian passport.
U.S. officlals have not tried to
question Ray to avoid legal com-
plications resulting from Supreme
Court decisions in recent years.
And now that he has been char-
ged under British law, Scotland
Yard cannot interrogate him out-
side a courtroom.
While British police were trying
to ascertain whether Ray had any
contacts in London, detectives in
*roronto were searching for a
'short blond man who reportedly
came looking for Ray in a room-
ing house three or four days after
the suspect flew to London.
