Korean ice'-Presidency
Totters as Chang Resigns

Prediet Rhee
May Dump
Expected To Decline
Elected Office Soon
SEOUL (-South Korea's lame
duck, Vice President John H.
Chang resigned today and Lee Ki-
Poong, the man who unseated him
in the controversial March 15
election, said he might step down
Lee would have succeeded
Chang Aug. 15 under President
Syngman Rhee.
'7 am considering relinquishing
the vice presidency-elect," said
His statement came shortly
after Chang, leader of the oppo-
sition Democratic Party, quit his
post with a bitter blast at the
Rhee government.
Resignation Demanded
Lee's resignation had been de-
manded by the opposition since
the March elections. It had been
expected he might be dropped as
a step by Rhee to meet the strong
pressure on his government.
That pressure boiled up into
near revolt last Tuesday with
demonstrations that were climax-
ed in bloodshed in Seoul.
The resignation of Chang came
as a surprise.
Ring Warning Bells
Chang said the purpose of his
move was to "ring warning bells
to the Syngman Rhee government,
which is drunk with power and
continuing tyrannical, oppressive
Chang, 60 year old, head of the
opposition Democratic Party, has
been virtually ignored by Rhee
during his term of office.
Chang announced his resigna-
tion as the man who defeated himu
in the disputed March 15 elections
-Lee Ki Poong-also was reported
planning to step down. In South
Korea the president and vice pres-
ident can be of different parties.
May Oppose Rhee
Chang's move put him in an ex-
cellent position to oppose Rhee for
the presidency if Rhee should
yield to demands that both the
presidential and vice presidential
elections be held again.
All indications were that Rhee
hoped to appease outraged public
opinion by easing out Lee in a
maneuver that would mean only
a new vice presidential election.
Chang defeated Lee, Rhee's pro-
tege, in 1956, but lost the same
race last month.
Charges that the election was
rigged with stuffed ballot boxes
and police coercion led to the
bloody uprising in Seoul Tuesday
in which at least 125 and perhaps
up to 200 were killed.
- Expect Lee's Ouster
A former premier indicated last
night he expects Rhee to drop Lee
as a step toward easing South
Korea's grave internal crisis, That
would necessitate a new election.
While 10,000 students staged
new-but this time mostly peace-
ful-demonstrations in the port
city of Inchon yesterday, the 85-
- year-old Rhee was reported about
ready to make an announcement.
Lee is a main target of student
and popular indignation.
Kennedy Says
'Ask People
For Backing'
PORTLAND, Ore. W) - Sen.

John F. Kennedy opened a two-
day sweep of Oregon yesterday,
hammering on the theme that a
candidate for nomination ought to
ask the people for their backing.
It was a direct attack on Sens.
Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas and
Stuart Symington of Missouri.
Both have said they will accept
the Democratic presidential nom-
ination, but neither had entered
a primary until now.
They are in Oregon's, by law.
Under Oregon law, all candidates
are entered. What happens in
Oregon's May 20 primary, Ken-
nedy said, may be significant. It
is the last vote of the people
before the Democratic National
Convention, and the first in which
all candidates have been thrust.

Rockefeller Praises Nixon


son A. Rockefeller of New York
heaped high and unusual praise
on Vice-President Richard M. Nix-
on yesterday.
He gave him everything but
what the Vice-President probably
wants the most-Rockefeller sup-
port in the race for the Republican
Presidential nomination.
Few candidates -- and Nixon
now seems a shoo-in - ever got
more kindly treatment.
Good Fellow
"Dick Nixon has been a very
good friend of mine for many
years," Rockefeller said. "He has
done an absolutely superb job as1
But once again he stubbornly
refused to endorse Nixon. He'll

which he called for more dynamic

ca-an area which will have a bil-
lion population by the year 2000.

Rockefeller began it with his
voluntary praise of Nixon, by far
the strongest words he has used
in recent months.


Johnson Set\
On Seeking
HOUSTON, Tex. (P)-Sen. Lyn-
don B. Johnson (D-Tex.) moved
closer yesterday to the moment
when he will join fellow Senators
in admitted quest of the Demo-
cratic presidential nomination.
Johnson almost did it here
Thursday and it was plain to all
present at a news conference that
the Senate Majority Leader will
be-and is--a candidate for the
"I have served my country in
every capacity in which I have
been asked to serve," the reluctant
Texan said. "I would not shirk my'

"I repeat what I said before,"
he added when pressed as to
whether he would accept the nomi-
"That is what I think I should
say at this time.
"My name will be placed in
nomination and I am highly hon-
ored. But my job is in the Senate,
and that is what I intend to do-
Johnson, when the moment he
deems proper arrives, will join fel-
low Sens. Wayne Morse (D-Ore.),
John Kennedy (D-Mass.), Stuart
Symington (D-Mo.), and Hubert
Humphrey (D-Minn.) in the drive
for the Democratic standard bear-
er's position. Some observers be-
lieve he will have at least 450
delegates lined up for the conven-
tion's first ballot.
Wants Chairmanship
On Feb. 6, in Indianapolis, John-
son told newsmen he expected to
be chairman of the Texas delega-
tion at the Los Angeles conven-
tion, "and I hope it will be com-
mitted to the support of my candi-
dacy," he added.
He spoke again yesterday- in
Denver, and some supporters be-
lieved he might have announced'
his decision there since he has
tried in recent months to align
himself strongly with the West.
Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-Tex.),
long his advisor in Congress,
launched a Johnson-for-President
campaign in Texas several months

Hope Forlorn
But for those supporters who
still cling to a forlorn hope that
somehow Rockefeller may yet pull
the political upset of the century
and win the nomination, he had
chilling words.
"I am not a candidate," he said,
"nor will I be."
Rockefeller's speech was a long
look at the future, and a call for
"In the revolutionary times
through which we pass," he said,
"we shall be the creators of cir-
cumstances-or we shall be its
Rockefeller's theme:
UrgTes )Press
Stevenson said yesterday "if the
people are complacent and uncon-
cerned about the good health of.
our system the press must share
the blame."
The titular head of the Demo-
cratic Party added in an address
prepared for a meeting of the
American Society of Newspaper
"I am not concerned with the
Republican partisanship of the
press, but I am profoundly con-
cerned with its respect for the
party system and its obligation to
help make it work effectively."
Stevenson said that "the gov-
ernment, the ins, must be meas-
ured by the same standards of
responsibility as the opposition,
the outs, and the press must call
'em as it sees 'em, not as it would
like to see 'em."
"Large sections of opinion are
skeptical of polticians and politi-
cal opposition needs to be rein-
forced about specific evils or vir-
tues. I am even going to resist any
temptation to berate you for un-
equal treatment of Republicans
and Democrats in the news.
"Nor will I mention your ill-
concealed zeal at certain sacrificial
festivals in recent years. Instead I
just want to exploit today's mood
of mutual forgiveness and charity
by reminding you that a respon-
sible press can be a great help to
the opposition by giving it an
adequate hearing."
Stevenson, twice defeated as the
Democratic presidential nominee,
added that "if responsible news
reporting is essential to an effec-
tive opposition, an irresponsible or,
frivolous press obstructs the sys-
tem and dvierts the public."
