Enemy Shell Alters Bob Dole's Career Thousands of people who have met or will meet Congressman Bob Dole as he campaigns for Congress in the new First District may wonder wliy this vigorous, energetic man always extends his left hand in greeting. Only One Real Issue Campaign There is only one real issue in this campaign for Congress. Bgb Dole uses independent judgment-Breeding votes the Kennedy line-lock, stock and barrel. Bob Dole supports such programs as conservation,. REA and manpower retraining. He voted to strengthen the obscene litera- tflre law, the pure food and drug law, and the self-employment retirement act.

Ask Bob Dole about his war experience, his medal for bravery under fire, his wounds and long hospltalization, and he changes the subject. "I was just another foot soldier," he says briefly, but it Is a fascinating story, (little known outside Bob's home town of Russell)-a heart-rendering one with a happy ending to come from World War II. Since Bob answers questions so reluctantly however, it had to be gathered from family and friends. icii»;ui.c»...

His opponent, on the other hand, "went with Kennedy" all the way. behalf of "Kennedy congressmen and senators." "Following at his heels," Dole said, "are his cabinet fleers, singing for their political suppers at taxpayers' expense." It was while attending the University of Kansas, waiting tables to help pay his way, that Bob enlisted in the Army. While at KU, Bob earned freshman numerals in basketball, football and track believes that the best tax reform is a cut in federal spending. Yet Bob Dole is aware of the responsibilities of government in fields of public service. He stays on the job while Congress has important measures before it, and herein lies another great contrast. During the past two weeks, Dole voted for: The Cuban Resolution, the Berlin Resolution and presidential authority to recall reserves all for the purpose of strengthening the position of the United States in case of world crisis. And his opponent, Floyd Breeding did not vote on any of these on final passage. He was campaigning in Kansas. Dole was-on the job in Washington. Dole voted for the bill to strengthen the obscene literature law to protect children against this sort of filth. And where was Breeding? Campaigning in Kansas. Dole voted for the food and drug act to strengthen its provision sod Btotect consumers. (Continued on page 3) "This one-man, one-clan for power over our lives must not succeed. "As youT congressman, I will continue to resist attempts by the Kennedy's to enlarge the federal government, to spend more of the taxpayers' money, to add to our burden of debt, and to extend mandatory controls over our daily lives." • Opposed Debt Increase Recalling that he voted against two increases in the federal debt limit this year, Dole said he consistently has opposed attempts by the Kennedy administration to add more employes to the federal payroll, to spend more money and to add to the growing debt to be paid by the children and grandchildren of future generations. "We cannot hope for tax relief without a reduction in federal spending," Dole said. "Federal spending cannot be reduced by adding to the government payroll, adding to the federal debt, by approving expensive giveaway programs designed principally to extend the authority of 'Representative Dole reports he has been assured by the Department of Agriculture that the proposed penalties are to be modified by amending the bill.
