NEW ENGLAND TOUR

Response
NEW YORK (f) - Sen. George
McGovern, winding up his first
major campaign tour, had bet-
ter luck yesterday talking to vot-
ers than to politicians.
In Providence, R.I., the Demo-
cratic presidential nominee drew
applause and cheers from people
at a lunchtime rally and at a
home for the elderly, as he had
done the day before at appear-
ances in Manchester, N.H. and
Hartford, Conn.
But he failed to patch up a
dispute with Rhode Island
Democratic Chairman La wrence
McGarry. In New York, Brook-
lyn leader Meade Esposito and
Bronx leader Patrick Cunning-
ham stayed away from a news
conference called to demonstrate
party unity.

to Me Govern mixed

McGovern and his wife Eleanor
changed their original plans to
return to Washington Friday.
Instead, they headed for Wood-
stock, N.Y., to spend Saturday
and part of Sunday at the home
of a friend.
The candidate's aides mean-
while, released a schedule of his
next campaign swing, a three-
day trip next week to Ohio, Illi-
nois and Wisconsin.
McGovern begansnhis day tour-
ing the modern highrise Bradford
Bouse center for senior citizens
in Providence.
As two old ladies teetered pre-
cariously atop a stone fence,
straining to get a better look,
McGovern went through shaking
hands and chatting.

Later the residents applauded
as he told them that ending the
Vietnam war would make more
available for social purposes such
as aiding the elderly.
At a stop along a walking tour
of the nearby Federal H i 11
section of Providence, an Ital-
ian American neighborhood of
aging two-story wood frame
buildings, someone held up a
sign saying "Boon Giomo, Mc-
Govern." Adolph Gianquitti, a
local butcher and chairman of
the 13th ward Democratic organ-
ization, added a comic note a.
he muffed the candidate's name,
introducing him as "Sen. McGov-
ernor, the next President."
At a news conference at t he
state Capitol, McGovern, he said
he wanted to start healing the
"wounds and scars" of the party.

WASHINGTON (/') - Secretary
of State William Rogers describ-
ed as "political fantasy" yester-
day a charge by Democratic vice
presidential nominee Sargent
Shriver that President Nixon
"blew" a historic chance for a
Vietnam peace.
In a news conference before
his slated appearance Monday
before the Republican Platform
Committee in Miami, Rogers also
criticized Ramsey Clark, a form-
er attorney general in the John-
son administration.
Rogers, a one-time attorney
general himself during the Eisen-
hower administration, said, "I
was shocked to hear a North
Vietnamese - broadcast quoting
Clark, visiting there, as calling
for an end to the US. bombing.
"To hear him on Radio Hanoi
was contemptible," Rogers said,
particularly "at a time when
American men are flying over
there and losing their lives."
He said Clark, as a Johnson

Cabinet member, was involved in
the decision making that sent a
half million GIs to Vietnam and
incurred many casualties.
Rogers saw peace as of No. I
interest to American voters in
the 1972 presidential campaign,
and said, "President Nixon has
brought about conditions in the
world that make prospects for
peace much better."
Rogers referred particularly to
Shriver's statement in an inter-
view Thursday that "Nixon had
peace handed to him literally in
his lap - and he blew it."
In opening his vice presiden-
tial campaign in his home state
of Maryland, Shriver said he had
remained in Paris at Nixon's re-
quest because he thought Nixon
had "an unparalleled opportun-
ity to bring peace" in Vietnam.
