Even as Romney was fending
aside 1968 speculation, his presi-
dential support from New York
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller was
reported even more solid than
Rockefeller publicly indicated
earlier this week.
The term would be four years
under a new State Constitution
which Romney helped write.
Romney's first two terms, which
broke 14 years of Statehouse rule
by Democrats, were for two years
But when asked if he expected
to serve the full four years if
elected, he said: "No person can
foresee what will happen two or
four months from now, let alone
two or four years. The only office
for which I am a candidate is
governor of Michigan."
He insisted all 1958 speculation
was premature in light of a come-
back task facing the GOP in 1966
congressional and gubernatorial
Parrying newsmen's questions
about his presidential thoughts,
the 58-year-old governor finally
broke up in laughter when asked
if he would accept a 1968 nomina-
What some Republican leaders
are foreseeing, however, is that
Romney, a former president of
American Motors Corp., is the
most likely candidate of the mod-
erate wing of the GOP.
Romney stood somewhat apart
from the moderates, however, as
they floundered in the face of the
Barry Goldwater conservative tide
in 1964. Romney at the same time
refused to endorse Goldwater.
The Michigan governor's strong
civil rights position is unlikely to
help woo Southern support, leav-
ing the populous North and Mid-
west as his most probable sources
of strength in any 1968 nomina-
Sources close to Rockefeller now
say the New York Republican
t leader has made a firm commit-
ment to Romney for the nomina-
tion-a commitment extending be-
yond the veiled support he offered
in a speech Monday night in
Garden City., N.Y.
The sources say Rockefeller has
turned over his confidential files
and lists of political and financial
backers from his own unsuccess-
ful 1964 presidential effort.
Romney would say only that
Rockefeller has often provided
helpful research materials.
A Rockefeller adviser said, "We
would never have given him this
i kind of material unless we had a
clear, deep commitment."
Rockefeller's public praise of
Romney was coupled with a hint
that Sen. Jacob K. Javits, who
wants to be New York's favorite
son candidate in 1968, and the
Michigan governor would make a
Rockefeller said as Romney and
Javits were together: "I find a
growing feeling among Republi-
cans that it might be nice to have
them together in the future."
The Michigan governor has been
accused in the past of playing
ok down his party affiliation. He
bristled when asked about it yes-
terday, saying he has run as a
Republican and "I am a Republi-
can who puts his citizenship ahead
of his partisanship."
Romney's opponent is expected
to be Democratic State Chairman
Zolton Ferency, a fiery attorney
who has been at odds with the
Michigan's two most prominent
available Democrats, former Gov.
G. Mennen Williams and Detroit
Mayor James Cavanagh, each de-
cided to contact the other for a
U.S. Senate nomination rather
than take on Romney.
One measure of Romney's at-
tractiveness for 1968 will be
whether he can bring newly ap-
pointed Republican Sen. Robert

SAIGON (IP)-United States of-
ficials expressed belief last night
that, while dissidence persists at
Hue, Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's
military government is again firm-
ly in the saddle.
Security forces scattered hun-
dreds of demonstrators in Saigon
and the Buddhist hierarchy bowed
to an official ban on a proposed
antigovernment "march of peace"
in this 11th week of political tur-
A U.S. diplomat remarked that
"a lot depends on how the govern-
ment handles liquidation of the
revolt." He suggested a military
assault, such as that which crush-
ed the Da Nang uprising Monday,
would be a mistake at Hue, a
Buddhist center 400 miles north
That seemed to be Ky's idea
too. The government has announc-
ed it will try to end the opposition
without bloodshed. As part of an
economic freeze, all Air Viet Nam
flights to Hue have been stopped.
There were reports of a fuel
shortage that could affect the Hue
electric power plant.
Among events of the day:
-About 2,000 Vietnamese ma-
rines and paratroops backed Sai-
gon police in breaking up groups
of rioters, many led by Buddhist
monks. Loosing tear gas and fir-
ing shots in the air, they method-
ically cleared street after street.
Officers said some of the men
they arrested were agitators dis-
guised as monks. The Viet Cong
has sought from the start to ex-
ploit the unrest.
-Moscow, Peking and Hanoi
radios beamed words of encourage-
ment to the antigovernment fac-
tions. Communist North Viet
Nam's station accused Ky's gov-
ernment of "brutal supression of
labor and student groups.''
-The U.S. Command announced
another search-and-destroy op-
eration against the Viet Cong.
This is a sweep launched by the
U.S. 173rd Airborne Brigade and

May 16 near Vung Tau, 40 miles
southeast of Saigon. They were
reported to have killed 20 Com-
munists. The announced toll on
the enemy from two previously
announced American drives
mounted to 389. Fliers carried on
the aid war both north and south
of the border despite monsoon
-Two military leaders of the
Da Nang uprising-Lt. Col. Dam
Quang Yeu and Maj. Ton That
Tuong-were flown to Saigon for
interrogation. Both apparently
surrendered voluntarily yesterday,
Yeu had been staying at the U.S.
3rd Marine Amphibious Force
headquarters. The official Ameri-
can explanation for Yeu's presence
there was that he was on leave.
-The tide of rebellion appear-
ed to be ebbing in the north. A
dispatch from Hue said only a few
roadblocks remained, most of these
were unguarded, shops were open,
and the city seemed almost back'
to normal. But about 100 Hue Uni-
versity students staged a hunger'

WASHINGTON (P)-Loser by
proxy in an Oregon senate pri-
mary, Democratic Sen. Wayne
Morse said yesterday that victory
is ahead-in the person of Re-
publican Gov. Mark O. Hatfield-
for critics of this country's Viet
Nam war policy.
Morse offered that assessment
after Democratic Rep. Robert B.
Duncan, cast as a hawk in the
war talk campaign, trounced peace
candidate Howard Morgan for
nomination to the Senate.
Hatfield, a critic of President
Johnson's policy in Viet Nam, had
no real opposition in Tuesday's
balloting for the Republican sena-
Morse said in Washington that
the combined primary vote cast
for Hatfield and Morgan "indi-
cates strongly that the Johnson
administration will be repudiated
on the Viet Nam war issue by a
substantial majority of the voters
of my state."
But in the House, a Democrat
who backs Johnson and faces pri-
mary opposition from a peace
candidate breathed a sigh of relief
at the Oregon results.
"Wonderful," said Rep. Charles
H. Wilson, who seeks renomination
in California's June 7 primary.
"It shows the position we've taken

FARM WORKERS GAIN:
Vote Minimum Wag
WASHINGTON (A"-The House
voted to extend minimum-wage
coverage to farm workers for the
first time yesterday but balked at
bringing in employes of small re-
The action added up to a major
victory and a major defeat for
sponsors of the administration-
backed bill and left the measure's
shape still to be determined. Final
voting is set for today.
The victory was scored on a
157-149 vote that rejected an
amendment to remove farm work-
ers from coverage under the bill.
The defeat was dealt by Rep.
John B. Anderson (R-Ill) who
won an amendment limiting the
reach of the legislation to com-
panies with an annual gross busi-
ness of more than $500,000.
The bill would have dropped the
$500,000 limit to $250,000 in 1969.
Anderson said his amendment
was intended to cut out 955,000
employes of small retail and serv-
ice establishments, but Rep. John'
H. Dent (D-Pa), floor manager of
the bill, said it actually would
eliminate 1.6 million.
Anderson later told newsmen
he had included mistakenly lan-
guage in his amendment that went
further than he intended. The
effect would be to cut out 650,000
additional employes in small min-
ing, manufacturing, processing,
finance and insurance operations.
House rules permit a separate
roll-call vote before final passage
on any amendments adopted dur-
ing considreation of a bill, and
Dent is expected to request one in
hope of knocking out the Ander-
The House made other small
changes in the bill. One would
bring the employes of elementary
and secondary schools under the
act, and another would provide
that restaurants need pay only
55 per cent of the minimum wage
to tipped employes, on the theory
the other 45 per cent would be
covered by tips.
But most of the long day was
spent debating the amendment by
Rep. Dave Martin (R-Neb) to re-
move coverage of farm workers.
Martin said farmers are already
in bad financial shape and requir-
ing them to pay higher wages
would put a lot of them out of
Representatives of some farm
areas, notably California, opposed
Martin, however. California al-
ready pays higher farm wages than
the bill would provide.
Dent said only 1.6 per cent of
the nation's farms-the largest
ones-would be covered by the bill.
No action was taken on the
bill's proposal to raise the $1.25
an hour now in effect for covered
workers to $1.40 next year and
$1.60 in 1968. An amendment is
expected to be offered to hold
the minimum at $1.40 until 1970
before the $1.60 goes into effect.

MOSCOW UP)-The Soviet mil-
itary establishment has thrown
its considerable weight against
liberals on the Soviet cultural
Literature must show "the
greatness of our time" instead of
questioning heroic legends of
World War II, a military spokes-
man says. And, he adds, Josef V.
Stalin's reasons for sending peo-
ple to their death or concentra-
tion camps should be appreciated.
After earlier sniping by Red
army spokesmen at liberal writers
who failed to follow the officially
endorsed canons of "Socialist real-
ism," a summary of the military
attitude on culture was published
yesterday with these points.
The summary was made by Gen.
Alexei A. Yepishev, head of the
central political department of the
Soviet army and navy, in a speech
reported by the military paper
Yepishev's hard line on culture
came as part of a resurgence late-
ly of Stalinist-type comments
Their fire has been centered on
Alexander T. Tvardovsky, editor
of the monthly journal New World
that has published much of the
new liberal writing.
Tvardovsky was dropped from
the Communist party's third rank
of leadership recently but contin-
ues to edit the journal.
Yepishev's praise of writers and
artists who were favored during
the Stalin era indicated a craving
for the simple old days of party-
line culture that existed only to
support the regime. But in the
past decade some writers have de-
viated from the simple approach
of depicting heroic builders of
