(New York) Republican Senator Jacob Javits sure he won't lose election. Seeks 3rd term; counts on liberal, Jewish and upstate Republican votes. Stresses his seniority, civil rights record and opposition to Vietnam policy. [O'DWYER - says chief issue is Vietnam.] He's hero of campus. Conservative Party runs James L. Buckley, brother of columnist, William F. Buckley, Junior He may hurt O'Dwyer; he's Vietnam hawk. [BUCKLEY - says only thing immoral about sending men to Vietnam is if we don't have will to win.] [JAVITS - asks man with O'Dwyer button to ask question.] Javits for negotiated settlement and halt to bombing of North Vietnam. [JAVITS - says man's question factually wrong.] Javits says he's opposed bombing since February `67. Says Nixon can best end war. Many Democrats do to O'Dwyer what he's doing to Humphrey. [MAN - asks O'Dwyer who his President choice is.] [O'DWYER - says he doesn't have to have choice.] [Bronx Democratic Chairperson Henry MCDONOUGH - says unless O'Dwyer supports Humphrey, he won't campaign for him.] [MAN - asks O'Dwyer if he has no President choice.] [O'DWYER - says won't vote for Nixon or Wallace or support Humphrey.] Most feel O'Dwyer far behind.
