Vice President Hubert Hum-
phrey appeared to close the
door yesterday on speculation
that if he receives the Demo-
cratic presidential nomination
he would let the convention
choose his running mate.
"I would very much to have
something to say about that
myself," the vice president told
his first formal news confer-

At times, the vice president
showed a little irritation when
questioned about Vietnam and

But the Massachusetts sen-
ator's wishes remain a question.
Hopes of a Humphrey-Ken-
nedy ticket have been expressed
by a number of Democrats at
the National Governors Con-
ference in Cincinnati. Hum-
phrey said he had not talked
to Kennedy about the possibili-
ty of a Humphrey-Kennedy
But when pressed on whether
he would be talking to the
young senator from Massachu-
setts, the vice president said, "I
imagine as president of the
Senate I will see him in the

Asked at a news conference
earlier about the possibility,
Humphrey replied there were a
number of Democrats who
could fill the spot.%
Kennedy has made no com-

since the assassination of his
brother, Sen. Robert F. Kenne-
dy, that a Humphrey-Kennedy
ticket would boost chances for

There was new guesswork
that plans might be in the
making after a meeting in Hy-

figures of the late President

But Frank Mankiewicz, who
was on Robert Kennedy's staff,
said the meeting was one of a
series on planning a "living"

questions about Vietnam yes-

views about Asia within 10
When he was asked whether
he could foresee a plank in the
Democratic platform on Viet-

WASHINGTON (R)-The House
voted 99 to 56 yesterday to permit
gun collectors who deal in relics
and curious to license themselves
so they can buy and sell firearms
in interstate commerce.

require the states to license own-

The amendment offered by Rep.
Robert McClory (R-Ill), who un-
successfully sought last Friday to
require registration of pistols and
revolvers, was defeated after a
little less than two hours of de-
bate on the floor.
The amendment was believed
to be the last controversial issue
before the house acts on a bill to
prohibit interstate mail-order
sales of rifles, shotguns and am-!

have given the states until Sept.

WASHINGTON (R) - Southern
senators carried their assault on
the U.S. Supreme Court through
another full day of hearings yes-
terday, blurring the timetable for
action on the appointment of Abe
Fortas as chief justice.
The slow pace threatened to.
pinch the plans of the Senate Ju-
diciary Committee for a vote on
Fortas before Congress quits at
the end of next week for the na-
tional political conventions.
Southerners used the ninth day
of hearings to cross-examine De-
puty Atty. Gen. Warren Chris-
topher on a Justice Department
memorandum last week praised
Fortas as having "performed re-
markably well in three years" on
the high court.
Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr. (D-NC),
said the court, particularly since
Fortas joined it, "has been taking
precedent after precedent and
casting them into the judicial
Christopher tried to sidestep a
sparring match with Ervin and
hinted it was time to reach a
committee vote on Fortas.
"This is already the longest in-
terrogation that any justice has
undergone," he said.
With Senate protocol allowing
a one-week delay in a committtee
vote once a meeting has been
scheduled, doubt was growing
whether the panel would take
action on Fortas before the Aug.

"'THE INCIDENT' hits home with express train impact

-Kathleen Carroll, Daily News
"A powerful film that drives relentlessly deep. It's a
shocking experience. 'The Incident' is brought vividly
to life by Larry Peerce, the director who tackled race
relations so daringly in 'One Potato, Two Potato.'
The acting is splendid ... the action holds your interest
throughout. Tony Musante and Martin Sheen make
the hoods terrifyingly real."
