From Wire Service Reports
Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.) won both the Oregon
and Rhode Island Democratic primaries last night.
McGovern said a victory in the crucial California pri-
mary two weeks from now could enable him to go to Miami
Beach with the party's presidential nomination wrapped up.
McGovern had been favored in both winner-take-all
primaries.
Senator Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.) was third, nar-
rowly behind Sen. Edmund Muskie (D-Me.) in the Rhode
Island primary, and was running third behind Alabama
Gov. George Wallace in Oregon.
McGovern was the only major Democratic candidate

The University lost no time filling in the bomb craters dug by anti-war protesters last Friday. Ob-
servers report that at 5 Monday morning two bulldozers and two police cars filled in the cra-
ter in front of the Economics Bldg. in ten min tes.
EXPANDED BOMBING:
U.S. hits power plants,
cuts bridges in North

to campaign in Oregon.
The expected victory gave
him Oregon's 34 votes at the
Democratic National Conven-
tion for at least two ballots. To-
gether with the 22 votes he won
in Rhode Island, his total rose
to 491' of the 1,509 needed for
the Democratic presidential
nomination.
With 42 per cent of the Ore-
gon's 2,361 precincts reporting
late last night, the vote totals
of leading candidates in the
Democratic presidential pri-
mary were:
-McGovern 50,230-49 per
cent"
-Wallace 20,583 - 20 per

-Humphrey 13,493 - 13 per

President Nixon swept to vic-
tories in Republican contests
against the same token opposi-
tion in both slates.

cincts counted, the vote totals
were:
-McGovern 15,484 or 41 per
cent.
-Muskie 7,799 or 21 per cent.
-Humphrey 7,655 or 20 per
cent.
-Wallace 5,794 or 15 per cent.
Four other entries divided the

to vote for him after losing a
court tight to have his name
taken off the ballot, polled 3 per
cent of the vote.
In the Rhode Island Republi-

mary, vote totals were:
-Nixon 5,011-88 per cent.

U.S. jets have heavily dam-
aged a power station near Hanoi
and destroyed six bridges on the
rail line to China in three days
of intensive air strikes on North
Vietnam, the U.S. command on-
nounced yesterday.
The Pentagon indicated the
attack on the power station
which supplies electricity to mil-
itary installations around the
North Vietnamese capital sig-
naled a widening of bombing
targets in the North.
U.S. planes "will be hitting
some of the other targets such
as power plants and some fac-
tories which support the enemy's
war effort, said Pentagon
spokesperson Jerry Friedheim.
Previous strikes have concen-
trated on petroleum storage de-
pots and transportation facili-
ties.
Most of the action in the
three-day-old operation center-
ed around the mountain of Chu
Pao, about nine miles south of
virtually surrounded Kontum.
Allied sources said the govern-
ment's six-battalion armor and
infantry task .force face about
four North Vietnamese battal-
ions at Chu Pao, including one
that has been pounding the road
with sporadic fire to discourage
vehicles from pushing north.
Initial reports indicated both
sides suffered se-eral troops
killed and wounded but no com-
prehensive casualty reports were
available.
Elsewhere, fighting tapered
off along the northern front
where Saigon government forces
claimed they killed about 300
of the opposition and damaged
18 tanks Sunday and Monday.
In South Vietnam's central
highlands, a South Vietnamese
task force trying for the second
time in three weeks to reopen
the highway linking Kontum
and Pleiku ran into stiff op-
position.

On the southern front field
reports said North Vietnamese
infantrymen and tanks smashed
into the rubble that six weeks
ago was An Loc the provincial
capital 60 miles north of Sai-
gon and were encircled by South
Vietnamese forces still en-
trenched in the battered town,
The reports claimed 13 North
Vietnamese tanks destroyed.
In Laos informed sources said
government irregulars beat back
a heavy attack 13 miles east of
Pakse the country's second lar-
gest city and a regional military
headquarters.
But some Americans fear the
North Vietnamese and Pathet

Lao may soon overrun the pro-
vincial capital in Southern Laos.
Meanwhile the top North
Vietnamese official in Paris, Le
Due Tho, said yesterday U.S.
mines sown in North Vietnam's
harbors are being cleared. He
scoffed at U.S. efforts to cut
off arms shipments to North
Vietnam from the Soviet Union
and China.
Late last night, U.S. military
sources reported that Navy and
Air Force fighters shot down
four Soviet-built MIGs in a dog-
fight deep in North Vietnam.
Radio Hanoi claimed eight
U.S. planes were shot down over
the North.
TRIAL JULY 27

Senate cuts
anti-busing
amendment
WASHINGTON (1') - The
Senate yesterday rejected an
attempt to send the $21.3-bil-
lion higher - education bill back
to Senate-House conferees with
instructions to accept stringent
House anti-busing provisions.
The lopsided vote against the
move by Sen. Robert P. Drif-
fin (R-Mich.) indicated that
the Senate will pass the com-
promise version of the legisla-
tion when it votes at 3:30 p.m.
EDT today.
The House has not yet voted.
Griffin, the Republican whip,
noted that the conferees had
accepted only one of the tough
House riders aimed at school-
busing orders and had water-
ed down the other two.
Supported by Southern sena-
tors, Griffin said he wanted the
Senate conferees to capitulate
and take all three of the House
provisions,
However, Sen. Claiborne Pell
(D-R.I.) declared that Griffin's
move could kill the entire high-
er - education package. He
moved to table and thus kill
Griffin'stmotion, and this was
adopted in a 44-26 vote.
The bill contains a new sys-
tem of student assistance de-
signed to assure every needy
high-school graduate in the na-
tion a chance at a college edu-
cation.
In addition, it would estab-
lish for the first time a pro-
gram of general federal grants
to aid all U.S. public and pri-
vate colleges and universities.
When the conference finished
last week, members estimated
the total cost of the measure at
$18.5 billion over four years.
But the official report, filed
yesterday, showed the total to
be $21.3 billion.
The one anti-busing House
rider accepted by the conferees
would prevent any court bus-
ing orders from taking effect
over the next 19 months-until
all appeals had been exhausted.
The other two riders, which
were softened, would have bar-
red use of any federal funds
for busing to d-esgregate a
school and would have directed
federal officials not to require
or induce a school district to
use state or local funds for that
purpose.
The conftrees instead accept-
ed Senate language which
would permit use of federal
funds in these cases if requested
by the local district and when
the busing is required by the
Constitution.

Tomato juice 'litterer' arrested

By CHRIS PARKS
Controversial University psy-
chiatrist Richard Kunnes sur-
rendered himself to police yes-
terday afternoon on charges of
littering,
The charges resulted from the
splashing of tomato juice in the
lobby of the Administration
Bldg. during an anti-war dem-
onstration last Friday.
Kunnes was arraigned yester-
day before District Court Judge
Sandorf Elden. He stood mute
and requested a jury trial. Elden
set the trial date for July 27,
and Kunnes was released on a
$100 personal recognizance
bond.
The warrant for Kunnes' ar-
rest was arranged by local at-
torney Don Koster and the
police department.
Kunnes, a staff psychiatrist
at University Hospital and the
Crisis Walk-in Clinic gained na-
tional notoriety when he threw
tomatoes at Sen. Hubert Hum-

phrey (D-Minn.) during a meet-
ing of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science
in Philadelphia last February.
Kunnes is also known for his
book "Your Money or Your
Life," a biting attack on the
medical establishment in Amer-
ica,
Meanwhile, there was little
progress against those involved
'in digging "symbolic craters"
in the Diag during Friday's pro-
test.
According to Ann Arbor Police
Chief Walter Krasny, the matter
is still "in the discussion stage
with the University and the
County Prosecutor."
Krasny said yesterday the dis-
cussions should be completed
and arrest warrants ready by
early this afternoon. "The Uni-
versity wants to go ahead," he
said, "so it's up to us the
police department) to get the
evidence together."
