Still Confident Mainland Will Be Recovered Chiang Celebrates 75th Birthday By SPENCER MOOSA TAIPEI, Formosa (AP)—President Chiang Kai-shek is alebra- ting his 75th birthday today in good health and still voi - ng confidence his Chinese Nationalists will recover mainland China in his lifetime. This birthday is his 15th in Formosa since he quit the mainland Dec. 10, 1949. Chiang seems as alert as ^ver, his eyes still as penetrating, his power of concentration unweak- ened. I He is strict on state business, but a genial, readily smiling host on social occasions. , He unbends with only a few peo-! pie: his elder son, Gen. Chiang Ching-kuo; his secretary-general, onotime Premier Chang Chun, who has been associated with the generalissimo since they were military cadets in Japan, and vice President • Premier Chen Cheng, a fellow native of the mainland province of Chekiang, who has served under him since 1924. Since his lar: birthday Chiang has varied some of the patterns of his daily life. He works mostly at his suburban home instead of at presidential headquarters in downtown Taipei. He attends fewer routine military, political and economic conferences. He skips most meetings of th e powerful standing committee of the Kuomintang, his ruling party. The change in his pattern of work does not mean Chiang is idling his time away, for his routine would tax many a younger man. He is delegating more work to Chen Cheng, his political heir-apparent, . other ministers, while concentrating on matters of top importance. Chiang alto wants to conserve his health. He regards this as a duty necessary for realizh. 0 his government's supreme goal —recovery of the mainland. Aides say Chiang has had no recurrence of the bladder trouble for which he underwent an operation at the end of April. Chiang regards the Chinese Communists as betrayers of the 1911 revolution which ended ..lore thx. 46 centuries of monarchical rule in China, His long-standing Page 7A Garden i'lly Telegram Wednesday.

IF VOU TftV TO HOLD MV HANP, I STEVE CANYON, about •WVW"SWB Editorial Comment High Plains Journal Makes . , . Declaration for Breeding r ••> • With this issue of the High I Plains Journal,-we formally declare our endorsement for J. Floyd Breeding for.. Congressman from the big First 'district in Kansas. This' probably is no surprise to regular readers of the , High Plains Journal—except that I this paper seldom formally I comes out for any candidate ift \ a political race. \ We do not- endorse Breeding ' because he is a Democrat any >s more than we. were for Clifford R. Hope because he is a Republican. The High Plains Journal t endorses J. Floyd Breeding, / farmer and small businessman, ( against Robert Dole, lawyer, be) cause we believe that Breeding Is for those, things which will build his First district in western • Kansas and make it grow—and that Dole is for those things which will continue to permit other areas to drain away the \ riches of western Kansas, which ^i eventually will improverish its 4 land and people The-editorial cartoon on this page says many of the reasons we 'are for Floyd Breeding. In his three terms' in Congress Breeding- has taken every op- .portunity to support the pro- 'grams proposed by wheat farmers—programs which, though introduced by Republicans before Breeding was a Congressman were fought by entrenched organizations and certain other farm interest which had more votes in Congress than wheai fanners, and which felt tha' wheat farmer prosperity threat cned their place at the public trough. Dole has taken a record eel stand against those programs as a Republican against Dem ccrats. The First'district voter can have confidence in the straight forward approach he can expec -• from J. Floyd Breeding. Every / wheat farmer, looking to the da> when he can farm free 4 from controls and government book keeping, knows- that his onlj salvation is in the sale of whea through export and greate domestic use. Breeding support ed farmer programs of this kinc He makes "politics" with hi record. Dole, on the other hanc in this situation! makes "politics with johnny-come-lalely insinua tions. If Dole did not know tha Gulf exports of wheat are mad from stocks in export position and that if we expect to expor Kansas wheat to the Orient w must have Kansas 'wheat in ex port position on the west coas then he is hardly the man t represent the 'greatest wheai growing area in tha world. H; insinuation that wheat moved to the west coast is intended to take income away from Kansas and make political hay for Democratic Governor Brown of California is pretty far-fetched. This kind of partisan obstructionism could lose for Kansas the wheat markets of the Orient which wheat farmer organizations have built so carefully. This single project-—wheat to Japan— could be of tremendous benefit o wheat farmers, the trade sell- ng grain, and thoae who serve and. supply the wheat farmer and lis family. If this were an isolated instance, we would not outline it at such ength. But it is the real issue ictween Breeding and Dole—one man is for'those things whifch >enefit his district, and the other s against them. Rural electrification and rural elephone under national administration have given the amier, formerly isolated in much of western Kansas, the means o help himself and bring com- 'ort, convenience, and efficiency :o his farm and farm family. Sreeding has a consistent record of favorable votes on REA—and Dole failed to act like • a Republican, he failed to hear the humanitarian voices in western Kansas seeking to alleviate distress in Red China, and he failed to conduct himself like a Western Kansan. As a Democrat, Floyd Breeding has a hearing and influence in the national administration— a thing Kansas sorely needs. But, entirely aside' from the fact that one man is a Republican and the other a Democrat, we would endorse Floyd Breed? ing because of his record of positive achievement in the helium planfe, farm legislation; fairer taxation, and other fields, against the negative record of Bob Dole. And we would endorse Breeding because his voting record consistently shows him lined up with'the farmer, the small communities and cities,'and the'bus- inessman and veteran of the First district, against the negative voting record of Bob' Dole. And we would endorse Breeding because of his progressive and straight forward approach to the problems of his district, action* ward organ! ecoiioi 1 dlvlsi 5 parti - Knr> Hen He' • or B T THE ISSUE—FOR OR AGAINST Dole has an amazing record oi unfavorable ones. In the proud name of reducing the government' debt for our children and grandchildren, Dole whittles away at such important appropriations as that for our .space program. This sort of false economy could impair our national 'defense and our occupation of space to the point where there might be no government such as we know now to be. indebted to—for which our grandchildren would not be likely to bf very grateful. For ••political" purposes, when Floyd Breeding voted—along \vith Republican leadership—to allow the President to permit foreign, aid to some Communist- dominated countries, Dole used an old and often discredited trick of -the cunning and bitter metropolitan East by combining a tirade from the Washington Post on aid to Communism with a voting record from Congress to infer that Breeding ;s a Communist sympathizer..^ this case, fa 01 Pi kr. "O ic a a gr; i sta "fit ary pr< as against-the negative approach o Bob Dolt.. And we would .endorse Breed ing because he is a farmer ant small businessman, against Bob Dole who is a lawyer. We hold 1 , no case against lawyers as such,' but we feel that if Congress is to' be representative of the people of the United States, it should show a greater number of people from all walks of life affected by the various laws, nnd not such a preponderance of : lawyers who are goin<£ to charge the people for working with these laws they, have made, We urge 'High Plains Journal readers to consider carefully and thoughtfully the ballot they cast •in the Nov.
