HH advocates arms race curbs

McCarthy urges new priorities

(Continued from Page 1)
that pride of citizenship and
pride of person is turned into
a constructive life.
What we need is the improve-
men't of public facilities to com-
pensate for the inadequacy of
private resources. In other
words, where you have people
that ?are economically poor, cul-
turally deprived, you need to
have your public resources be
the very best. That is where
you need the most gifted teach-
That's where you need to
have the most modern schools
with the most modern facili-
ties. That is where you need
specialized training, where peo-
ple may very well have been
the victims of an educational
gap. They have had separate
and unequal education. They
need to have a large dose of
educational opportunity to
bring them up to where they
can really participate on the
basis of equality in education.
In other words, it isn't just
Project Headstart that we need,
we need Project Catch 'Up sor
that this area, that has been de-
prived over a long period of
time can finally get itself in a
position where its occupants
and its inhabitants can partici-
pate on equal terms.
For the people that have
been pushed down for a hun-
dred years you are going to.
have to take a little time to
get them up where they can
really compete and stand on
the same ground on equal

I think the top priority is
rehabilitation and reconcilia-
tion. Rehabilitating people, re-
habilitating neighborhoods, ci-
ties, and then the reconciliation
of peoples, reconciliation be-
tween races and reconciliation
in your mind, in our own minds,
as to people accepting people
for what they are, accepting
them as people, and not as eth-
nic groups.
Now what can a President
do about this? He can set the
standards. He can hopefully
bring to bear upon the prob-
lem the total resources of the
nation by persuasion, by lead-
ership, by proposals.
Now, internationally, it's the
same thing. What I call recon-
ciliation and reducing of ten-
sions is the priority. Reducing
of tensions first and then re-
conciliation. I have tried to ex-
plain over a long period of time
now that we are at the end of
one. era and at the beginning
of a new one. This is 20 years
from 1948. The decisions mrade
in the immediatedpost war years
have been the decisions that
have basically guided our for-
eign policy and our national
security since then. In those 20
years, those policies have been
successful. They have outlived
much of their usefulness now.
It is a different world. In fact,
they were so successful that
they need to be changed.
The world is different. It
isn't the world of Joseph Stalin
or the communists. And it isn't
the world of the United States

as the only major power as we
were at the end of World War
II with any wealth or any re-
sources. It is an entirely dif-
ferent world.
It's the world of today, of the
communist bloc with a great
deal of movement within it, No
longer a monolith but with a
degree of autonomy, with an
ever rising surge of emancipa-
tion. This is what you see in
Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hun-
gary. This is the pattern.
It isn't just the United States

titive and rich and strong and
united. It is an entirely differ-
ent kind of Europe.
It isn't the United Nations of
55 nations. It is the United
Nations of 120 or more nations.
It is no longer colonialism, it
is nationalism that we are deal-
ing with. And hopefully, we can
bring about some international

initely be able to build on and
add on to what has been hap-

to reflect this in your populari-
ty among the Negroes. How can
you overcome this? Is it a con-
cern of yours?
McCarthy: Well, when I
started in New Hampshire, they
said I had no soul and no "rap"
with the white people. Some-
how, somebody is voting for me
in these primaries. Some peo-
ple approve of me in the polls.
I have never had any trouble
getting the support of Negroes

HUMPHREY: I feel I have
lived a life of political train-
ing and political experience
that should be helpful in ful-
filling the duties of the office
of the President. . . Now for
the last four years I have serv-
ed as Vice President, which.
has given me an opportunity
to see the presidency in opera-


think the

important thing is where you
stand on the issues. I think I
show a better analysis of the
issues . . . than any of the
other candidates. (As for ad-
ministrative experience), a
president who is preoccupied
with administration . . . is
usually inattentive to some of
the important policy decisions.-

ed States Senate until two
weeks ago. That's not really the
standard way to proceed. I
dont think just the addition
of students makes it new poli-
tics. It's been more a question
of procedure and form which
have made a difference. We've
raised issues within the Dem-
ocratic Party and a challenge
to one's own party which is
something different from any
politics in recent years and
we've been prepared to raise
questions about personnel in the
administration, which the tra-
ditional politicians don't do.
Levin: How much of the suc-
success of your campaign do
you attribute to the student ef-
McCarthy: I think it has
helped in two ways. It was very
helpful in New Hampshire
where they carried the message
to the people. That's part of it.
And I think they gave kind of
a tone, youth and spirit to the
campaign which has perhaps
been almost as important as the
actual physical work theydid
in the campaign. In addition
to that, they have been in posi-
tions of influencing policy to
some extent and carrying out
rather responsible administra-
tive duties in the campaign. I
would have to say they have
been very helpful.
Popa: Do you think that Vice
President Humphrey could beat
the Republican candidate with-
out Senator Kennedy as his
running mate?
McCarthy:. I don't know
whether he could win even with
Senator Kennedy as his run-
ning mate.

Popa: Have you given any
thought to wlo you would like
to have as your running mate?
McCarthy: Not very much ...
I haven't singled out anyone,
haven't offered it to anyone,
haven't even suggested anyone,
as the other side has done. I
think one should pick a vice
president whose views are es-
sentially the same as those of
the president. I am not in favor
of the kind of balanced ticket
where you have extremes and
the vice president doesn't agree
with the president.
Levin: Many black militants
such as Roy Innis of' CORE
have demanded black control
over all federal funds going
into the ghetto. Would you
favor this or do you believe that
ultimate control must reside in
Washington? Do you also favor
the degree of community parti-
cipation that was included in,
the "maximum feasible partici-
pation of the poor" clause of
the original OEO?
McCarthy: Well, "maximum
feasible participation" says >
everything and nothing, you
know. What does it mean,
maximum feasible participa-
tion? It is desirable I think,
but it doesn't mean absolute
control. I think that any fed-
eral money that's sent out is
going to be subject to condi-
tions imposed upon its distri-
bution by Congress, Put I do
think it important that, as
much as possible, a program for
ghetto areas should be directed
by people from those areas.
Even though you may have
some immediate inefficiency

and some waste, in terms of the
total effect of the program, I
think the benefits that come
from self determination and
from their own participation
would outweigh the early inef-
ficiency you might find.
Levin: Would you favor a
repeal of ;the Green amendment,
which put OEO funding in the
hands of City Hall?
McCarthy: It really didn't
quite do that, you know. It
came somewhat close, but they
really didn't have an alterna-
tive for\ it. What I think we
have to do is develop some new
structures within the commu-
nity for handling these pro-
grams such as we did with the
R.E.A., for example when the
rural electrification ' program
was developed. Here was a new
unit of government, really, with
which the federal government
dealt quite directly. Or there is
the Tennessee Valley Authority,
which was a regional unit of
government, so that you didn't
deal directly with the states.

And I think really, history will
record that Mr. Johnson's
greatest achievement has been
that despite the war in Viet-
nam, the relationships between
the United States and the So-
viet Union have improved: the
Non-Proliferation Treaty, the
Space Treaty, the Consular
Treaty, the Civil Aviation
Treaty, exchange agreements.
We have moved toward a more
rational relationship between
the United States and the So-
viet Union.
I think that the next Presi-
dent must be able to negotiate
with the Soviet Union, not only
treaties of restraint on wea-
pons, but treaties of de-escala-
tion of the arms race, agree-,
ments to cut back on the arms
race, in order, first of all, to
defuse some of the potential
dangers and secondly, to re-
lease some of the resources that
are desperately needed for

Blmhondo on
Crime and
with Jean-Paul Belmondo
The time is the last decade of
the loth Century, the place
is Paris. The spilit of the age--
at least among the prospering
middel class-is one of sublime
confidence in its own wisdom,
values and destiny. As Georges
Randal (Jean-Paul Belmondo)
draws near to manhood, he sees
no reason not to share in that
spirit. An orphan, he has been
raised in the smug, snug home
of his ponderously respectable,
respectably wealthy uncle. The
atmosphere has always been a
little constricting, a trifle hypo-
critical, but there are compen-
sations. For one thing, his
uncle is managing his inherited
fortune for him and Georges
imagines that upon attaining
his majority he too will be rich.
For another, his childhood
companionship with his uncle's
daughter, the winsome Char-
lotte, has slowly ripened into
Then one day George returns
from military service to dis-
cover that his uncle has appro-
priated his legacy and that
Charlotte is about to make a
dismal but financially advan-
tageous marriage. His world is

thinkingly as it did its opti-
mism. Do not be misled. The
plot is no more than a con-
venience, and the lovingly de-
tailed atmosphere, customarily
used in films merely to invoke
period charm, here provides an
ironically, contrasting, artist-
ically profitable background
against which Director and Co-
writer Louis Malle coolly ex-
plores the formation of a tho-
roughly modern, absurdist sen-
Georges, you see, gains some-
thing more than a morally,
psychologically and monetarily
rewarding revenge from his un-
thinking exercise in criminality.
He discovers he has been har-
boring a temperament remark-
ably suited for a life under-
ground. Fortuitously taken in
hand by the criminal establish-
ment, he quickly acquires all
the technical skills needed to
rise to the top of his new pro-
fession and satisfy a new-found
passion for dan ger and for
mastery over himself and over
the class that once wronged
Georges, with a good burg-
lar's skill at gaining the most
intimate knowledge of the
minds and lives of his victims,
quickly learns that everyone is
to some degree criminally ind-
clined. But he refuses to polit-
icalize his skill by placing it in
the service of anarchist revolu-
tionaries. He will not sully its
purity by opening it to simple
social interpretation. In the
end, he regains his own fortune
as well as his uncle's and even
wins back Charlotte. Surely,
now, satisfied, he will accede
to her request for an early re-
tirement. But no-his mis-
shapen honor, his instinct to
remain true to himself in a
world where others play them-
selves false, intervenes. In the

quisitions, catch a train to get
on to the next job. Georges has
become a dark, almost parodis-
tic artist figure, with the de-
structive act substituted for the
creative as the center of his
being. He will puruse his chosen
metaphor (or did it choose
him?) until it inevitably kills
him. To him there is no future,
only the present, and its mean-
ing lies only in action, not in
goals. One must respond to his
galantry in basing his life on
this dangerous proposition.
O simple a summary of The
Thief of Paris does not do
it justice. There is, for instance,
the excellence of Belmondo's
performance to be considered.
After a run of indifferent films
it is a pleasure to see his devil-
ish, uncalculateeo cool employed
in a worthy project. Director
Malle gets similarly sound per-
formances from the rest of his
large ensemble and becomes a
precise, self-effacing and de-
vestatingly accurate observer
of character and of underworld
and upperworld society.
The Thief of Paris is not to
be comprehended simply as a
crime movie, though it is com-
pletely satisfying on that level.
It is also a film that in a quiet,
logical voice persuades us that
life itself is pa crime movie and
that all of us are stage actors
in it. This message, which
comes through only in retro-
spect, is a terrible one, and it
is in the contrast between its
menace and the offhand tone
in which it was delivered that
the great, lingering strength of
The Thief lies. Other movies
have, of course, said much the
same thing about life. But few
have been so calmly, unhyster-
ically acceptant of all the up-
side-down, inside-out implica-
tions of the philosophy it ad-
