Nationally

‘Nixon Thinks Bobby Will Be Demo Winner’

“NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Sen. Robert F. Kennedy is the favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination, says Richard M. Nixon, candidate for the Republican nomination.” He predicted Kennedy “will win by a hair” over Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey. Nixon’s chief opponents are New York Gov. Nelson A Rockefeller and California Gov. Ronald Reagan.

Locally

• Clinton-Massie’s baseball team led by starter Jim Burton and reliever Larry Redfern pitching a combined one-hitter and made the regional finals with a 4-2 win over Upper Scioto Valley.

East Clinton defeated both Blanchester and Fairfield during the week, led by the hitting of McKenzie, Case and Whittington.
