The walk along the 7th floor hallways last night of Research Medical Center cappped Truman's first full day at the hospital, where he was admitted Sunday for tests described by his personal physician as routine. Robert W. Butler, a Kansas City Times reporter, was at the nurse's station and heard a voice say something relating to "a shave and a haircut." Butler, the only man in the hallway sporting muttonchop whiskers and a mustache, turned to see the former President moving along with a nurse and three chuckling Secret Service agents.

He attacked what he called "this pretended Sunday School politics. "They the McGovern forces have been doing the same thing we have and we know it The only difference is we freely admit it." King fears the party will emerge from Miami Beaeh as divided as it was after the 1968 Chicago convention. He predicts, tho, that they will have a candidate who is easier to elect because televised scenes in Chicago "made the Democrats look like a bunch of mobsters." Michael Blelcher, 36, is chairman of the mathematics department at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He has been working "full tilt" for a year for McGovern. He was the senator's committee floor manager here.

"No Buying Votes" He believes this open process is fine. There is no more buying and selling of votes, he said. He has promised to support McGovern enthusiastically should he win.

Foley refuses to doubt there will be unity after Miami Beach. Warren Widener, 34, the black mayor of Berkeley, Is less optimistic. He the chairman of the minority caucus here, "I think this Credentials Committee has polarized the Democratic Party so badly that unless some fantastic effort is made in Miami Beach, whoever comes out of the convention won't be able to beat Nixon," Widener explained. Can't Back Humphrey He could not support Humphrey, he said. He believes Humphrey, thru his committee supporters, has used "racist tactics," as reflected In votes on various challenges.

He called the California vote split "an outrageous kind of political stealing." Dumping Daley was so important to Widener that even a Democratic loss in Illinois in November is worth it to him. Robert Butler Zippy, a 4-year-old chimpanzee, greets 14-raonth-old Mindy Perllla in Bryant Park, New York. Zippy was part of a holiday show in which he put on a bike and skating exhibition. "crass others thru political in Court Weighs Appeals for Daley and McGovern changed the rules the committee's California vote." Patrick Foley is 42, a Minneapolis lawyer, and he was Humphrey's floor manager here. He chose this committee because he said it was clear that this waa the "last arena" in which McGovern could be slowed before the convention.

He felt cutting into the 271 McGovern California delegates was one way to do It Lack of any shifts among convention delegates to McGovern since that vote proved it worked, Foley said. attitude toward the reform guidelines, Blelcher, like others in the McGovern command, wanted a compromise to help Daley save face and to help Insure 'Illinois' votes next November.

Blast at Opponents Blelcher says the antl-McGovern forces, including supporters of Humphrey, Sen. Edmund Muskie Alabama Gov.

George Wallace, and Sees Possible Blunders Blelcher maintains the McGovern people did not take the California vote seriously and found themselves "faced with well disciplined antl-McGovern forces" so that "we probably made strategic blunders." In his view, severing those 153 California votes from McGovern "made voting on the Issues and on conscience" the first casualty of the committee. Having met the anti-McGov-era Blelcher ad-mita "we overreacted." Tho be felt Daley should be given a lesson for his cavalier power" wrecked the committee's ability to reason with issues on terms of merit. Labor leaders will walk out If McGovern 1a nominated, he believes, but be says they can't control the labor vote anyway. He worries that if McGovern is not nominated and the original California delegation not reseated, thousands of young people will leave the party realizing what be eaDf "dangerous anti-democratic forces." "We told tbem to work within the system," Blelcher said.

"A judge in hii wisdom might think a shrewd political decision would be to seat the Daley 59 or the McGovern 133, but if the Democratic Party decides in its misguided wisdom to push the self-destruct button, that is the First Amendment right of the Democratic Party," Call-fa no said. Case Called Clear Torshea told the court that Illinois was one of the Orst states to rewrite its delegate selection laws after the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago to give more people an opportunity to participate in the delegate selection process. The issue in the case before the court was relatively clear cut, Torsben said. It was whether a small group Singer's, using Democratic Party rules, could override the rights of 750JO0 Ulinoisans to choose their convention delegates by the election process.
