Palm Beach Post -21 Friday, Nov. 8. 1968 NMlEIll Schedule Faults Cited DISCOUNT DEPARTMENT STORES We're Celebrating the 1st Birthday of our North Palm Beach Store... By MEKRIMAN SMITH WASHINGTON (UPI) Backstairs at the campaign: Reporters who covered both the Humphrey and Nixon campaigns for extended periods gave awfully black marks to the people who did scheduling for the Vice President . . . Secretary of Agriculture Or-ville Freeman was in charge of it and he arranged some dillies such as one day in Ohio where the candidate was forced to spend over 90 per cent of his time motoring from sprech to speech over long stretches of deserted superhighways . . .the political motorcade, like the train, has turned out to be rather archaic in many sections of the country if the candidate sticks to express highways where virtually no. one sees him pass by ... the Nixon scheduling! seemed to make far more ef-. ... and the Grand Re-Opening You don't need cash to save chakge it... of our Newly Re-modeled with a j.m.

BOTTLE GIVES YOU THE WELL GROOMED LOOK tectlve use ot hi; time with the result that he did not' have to make ten or more speeches a day. Black marks, too, for big city police, particularly in New York and Chicago . . . their men were not well-in-' formed on various credentials within a candidate's travel party . . .staff members and in few instances, Secret Service agents, were unceremoniously seized by over -zealous local police and prevented briefly from moving with the candidate until superior officers intervened . . .in each campaign camp, there was an almost continuous battle with local police about the make-up of motorcades . . .in town after town, officious police executives would insist on inserting themselves near the candidate's car . . .in some cities, uniformed police made no secret of their preference for American Independent candidate George C. Wallace . . .in Klizabclh, N.J., two uniformed men assigned to crowd control at a Humphrey rally actually shouted for Wallace during a demonstration for the Vice President. A new police wrinkle in some cities involved the use of small so-called industrial television cameras operated by police from elevated positions and focused on rallies to provide a complete video-tape record for later study . . .these TV units also could be piped In "live" to police monitoring stations . . .also, much greater use ol police cameras than ever seen before in a campaign . . .this involves uniformed men on rooftops using lilm cameras with telephoto lenses and detectives in a crowd posing as news photographers . . .a genuine professional photogr apher somehow can spot t he police cameramen almost instantly, regardless of how they're clothed . . .the undercover police photographers tend to resemble amateurs with new cameras . . .they take a long time to focus the lens and then handle it very gingerly. Republican and Democratic rallies for presidential candidates generally seemed more poorly attended this year than the meetings of relatively recent presidential election y ears . . .television may have been partly responsible . . . Wallace drew amazingly well-, in a number ot areas amazing because he lacked a well-coordinated national campaign organization . . .also, his allies usually involved such conflict that they offered a vastly better show for many people than the more well behaved assemblies for Humphrey and Nixon . . . Wallace also appeared on TV much less than either of his opponents. Both major campaigns tried to avoid having supporters carry machine-printed signs along procession routes and in rallies . . .advance men supplied suggested slogans and volunteers of both parties hand painted placards to make them appear to be spontaneous and from the heart. As a result, the more clever campaign signs usually came from the unorganized, and these Invariably were of a protesting nature . . . two examples: At a Nixon rally, a young man carried a large poster bearing a picture of the Republican candidate and this inscription, "Would you buy a NKVV car from this man?" And at a Humphrey street meeting in Brooklyn, this sign, "While I was being gassed in Chicago, he was in his hotel kissing the TV." Mgerian arplanes Strafe Aid Planes LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) Night-patrolling Nigerian air force Jets strafed two relief planes on the ground at the Biafran airstrip near Ulu-Ihia-la, informed sources said Wednesday. They wounded one crew member and further endangered the future of International Red Cross flights carrying food to starving civilians, the informants sai. The two planes, one believed to be Swedish, were able to take off to return to their island base of Fernando Po, off the coast of Eastern Nigeria, the sources said. OUR REG. LOW DISC.
