In The Times: A Gallup Poll finds Sen. Robert F. Kennedy a distant second among the Democratic Party's county leaders, with 16% support compared with 70% for Vice President Hubert Humphrey and 6% for Sen. Eugene McCarthy. In San Francisco, Kennedy and McCarthy meet for a debate on ABC-TV.

While Kennedy is modest and reserved, McCarthy criticizes Secretary of State Dean Rusk and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, saying he would remove them. Afterward, McCarthy calls it "a no-decision bout with three referees and 16-ounce gloves."
