LANSING W)) - Gov. George
W. Romney said yesterday "sever-
al" Democratic legislators have
told him they support his plan
for congressional redistricting.
The governor,. told newsmen,
however, he does not know the
full extent of legislative support
for his plan in either party, or
whether there would be enough
votes to pass it, although he is
sure a majority of Republicans
would back it.
One of the purposes of a meet-
ing with Republican legislative
leaders later yesterday, Romney
said, was "to ascertain attitudes
on both congressional and legis-
lative redistricting."
'One Man, One Vote'
The governor, in announcing
his "one man, one vote" plan
last week, set Tuesday as the dead-
line for determining whether there
can be bipartisan support for any
plan, in order that it can be
passed by April 28.
Romney and Republican leg-
islative leaders have said they
want Democrats to give enough
support to a plan to give it the
two-thirdsvote needed for im-
mediate effect.
Romney, and the top leaders
will talk over legislative reap-
portionment against the back-
ground, of the flurry of opinionst
issued Friday by the Michigan
Supreme Court, which added up
to a continued postponement of
a decision.
Five Alternatives
In view of the situation, Rom-
ney said, approximately five al-
ternatives are under' discussion,
among them revival of a house
resolution to hold lawmakers in
office, or to allow the legislature
to redistrict itself by law.
The governor told newsmen to-
day that moving the Aug. 4 pri-
mary back to September "mould
appear to be a necessity," and
added that his personal preference
would be for a September primary

nese. Last night; however, Khrush-
chev declared:
"We do not doubt that the line
of the Chinese splitters will be
rejected by the Marxist-Leninist
parties and the world Communist
movement will rally even closer
around the banner of Marxism-
Leninism in the struggle for the
great cause of the working class,
for the victory of Communism."
Even though Gomulka was here,
prospects seemed to be fading for
an international Communist con-
ference on the Red Chinese ques-
tion during celebration of Khrush-
chev's 70th birthday here Friday.
There was a prospect Gomulka
might be leaving before the birth-
day parties.
Rumors circulated in Moscow
early this month that a number
of East European Communist lead-
ers would be coming to Moscow
for Khrushchev's birthday and
that the occasion would be used
for talks on how to deal with the

But after Gomulka arrived, a

said. "They have a very short
There has been growing evidence
that a number of Communist lead-

idea of a gathering for Khrush-

Romney Eyes Postponingff
Of August Primary in State
By The Associated Press
Since both congressional and legislative apportionment are tied
up in the courts, it is likely that the scheduled Aug. 4 primary will
have to be shoved back to September, Gov. George W. Romney said
at a news conference yesterday.
"It certainly appears necessary to delay the primary unless we
can have some very clear cut guidelines from the United States Su-
preme Court so there will be not ,

delay in carrying out apportion-
ment," Romney said.
The question of how the state
House and Senate boundaries
should be redrawn is currently
in the state supreme court. The
justices have decided they must
have a controlling opinion from
the United States Supreme Court
before deciding which of the ap-
portionment plans under consid-
eration should be adopted.
Congressional apportionment is
currently a subject of legislative
consideration. Three United States
judges ruled last month the re-
districting law passed in 1963 was
unconstitutional and told the law-
makers to pass a new, acceptable
act within weeks or the 19 con-
gressional seats will be filled in
an at-large election this fall.

Day Notes Critical Transition Period

The civil rights movement is
going' through a "critical time,"
according to Noel Day, noted for
his work with civil rights and mass
justice movements. .
"The movement has grown in
three years from infancy to late
adolscence. It is still frail in struc-
ture," he added.
"The qualities with which the
movement started-anger, enthu-
siasm and regard for humanity-
are no longer enough to keep it

He said the movement could be
stopped both externally and in-
ternally. There is a chance that
business and schools will adapt to
the demands of the movement so
quickly that "the bottom will drop
right out of it," achieving not
revolution but only reform.
Overstress Goals
Internally, Days says, the move-
ment could stop because of too
much concentration on -goals and
not enough on the more practical
