(!•.) Op|»«r D* MoiUM Tuesday, Oct. 18, 1960 fle$ulome$ SCHOOL ATHLETIC FACILITIES A suggestion came from school administrative officials last week that a new athletic plant rnigflt be deyolped for Ahgona .High school on part of a 35-acrt site purchased several years ajgo in the southeast corner of the city limits for school purposes. * Area citizens were invited to give their reactions. . Reasons given for the proposal were (1) there is a lack of practice fields, (2) there is a lack of good facilities for track, and (3) facilities now available at the fairgrounds might not be available in the future. On point one, there may not be enough practice fields with three teams working out, varsity, frosh-soph and junior high. However the teafrii have managed to get along for a good many years, even prior to obtaining the facilities at the fairgrounds. It is also true that the present track at the Athletic Park gets badly _cut up between track seasons. Any track will require considerable attention, however, every spring, be it new or old. As to the fairgrounds football field and. amphitheatre, fair board officials say they have no intention of refusing permission for use of the field or grandstand. There has been talk of relocating the fair and selling off the land of the present site. This is no farther along than when first broached several years ago. It seems to us that the location of the present football field in front of a covered grandstand, is the best in the North Central conference. The parking facilities, all off-street, are also far better than most places. The field itself probably could be smoothed out and improved, but it is far from poor. Thinking in terms of the specta- tgrs as well as the players, would a new field located farther out, and with only a bleacher- type seating, be an improvement? » -The thought also occurs to us that if the fair board should decide to move the fair to crnother site, the present fairgrounds site is a riych better one than the 35-acres purchased by t§e school system several years back. It also has of readymade football field, grandstand, and baseball diamond that with some improvement could become satisfactory. There is also ample rpom for a track. ( If we have to sub-divide something, let's syb-divide the 35 acres and keep the fairgrounds. ".".'. During,the past.three years with the fruitless efforts' on the' gridiron, nobody seemed anuch concerned about where anyone^prajtked or for /hat maW,'where' they^played. Maybe, ft is a good omen for present and future teams that sj?me thought is being given to the matter. 'Who Ever Heard Of Changing Boats In The Middle Of A Stream? 1 ALL NIXON RIVALS GET IT Somehow or other, Richard M. Nixon never firtds a Democratic opponent whose patriotism is above suspicion. In each campaign, he raises some question imputing a deficiency in Americanism to his adversaries. He did it with Truman and Stevenson, and now he is doing it with Kennedy. Among the many observers who have commented on this curious habit is United Feature Syndicate columnist Inez Robb, who writes that Nixon's present Democratic rival "is Nixon-guilty because he will not accede to the demand of the Republican candidate that any and all criticism of the present Administration is harmful and un- American while Nikita Khrushchev is in these United States." "Since the Russian leader has indicated that he may sit it out here until January, Nixon would effectively muzzle the opposition," Miss Robb adds. "That would, indeed, be very nice for him and the GOP." Mr Nixon's penchant for innuendo and slur has served to envenom the political atmosphere anc M ower tne quality °f American campaigns during the 14 years he has been on the scene. Quite apart from that aspect of the matter, his self-serving tactics in this instance tend to confuse the most vital issue before the American people today. Commenting that Mr Nixon "was seeing a non-existent danger in Mr Kennedy's campaign oratory," the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said: "In-calling upon his opponent to soft pedal remarks about our defenses and foreign policy, Mr Nixon may have converse effect. The enemy might suspect that things are even worse than described by Mr Kennedy and that Mr Nixon wois trying to cover up our most serious weakness." The Post-Gazette concluded its editorial with a recommendation that Nixon concentrate his attention on bringing out the accomplishments of the Eisenhower Administration in.the defense and foreign policy fields, as he will find the voters "competent to weigh these against the criticism of Mr Kennedy." It is time for real debate, and time that the Republicans finally abandoned the old Nixon "low road" tactics. "After 14 years," said the Matsonville, Calif, Register-Pajaronian, "we're getting a little bit suspicious that perhaps Richard Nixon is not the ONLY real American running for office, and that perhaps ALL his op. 'pohents are not servants, unwitting or otherwise, of the Kremlin." • ; •"•;•' <v : • . • *• f * * * , , ; ' : . '. •• i ..

OFFICIAL CITY ANP COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST resulted in no deep or clean cut victory for either party, there were a few things which this prejudiced eye thought were of significance. Nationwide, these seems to be general agreement that Jack Kennedy made 'slightly' the best appearance and impression, but the press has been quick to point out that this small.edge was too minute to be of apy long range import. We can't help but ask ourselves this one question: If the slight edge hqd been in Mr Nixon's favor, would it have been as equally played down and de-emphasized as it has been for Jack Kennedy, or would the press haye seized upon it as the "key to Nixon's ability to better handle the problems of the world," and hence the "beginning of his snowball to victory?" Sometimes the scope and importance of p yjctary or a defeat can be of far different rnpgpifudes, depending upon which side you stand. At any rate, this debate should have dispelled all doubts that have been raised about Kennedy's ability to handle himself in case he were to come up acjpinst a "tight" situation. Certainly the chips were gl) cjpwr)- and there was no one to lean upqp. Jhe American public saw it as it happened, before any fi|rn was edited or deleted, and those ,wh,p had. committed themselves to the Kennedy ticket prior to the debate found reason to bp syre (hey hqd made t^e right decision.
