Paul Simon, who declared today he has "as good a shot as anybody" after his victory over Jesse Jackson in the Illinois primary.

Jackson, in an interview on NBC-TV today, congratulated Simon on his victory but in almost the same breath seemed to dismiss it as Illinois voters paying "respects to a sitting senator" who had focused on his home slate while Jackson was competing in the Super Tuesday states. Simon, on the oilier hand, said on ABC-TV that his Illinois win showed he is in the thick of a battle that wilt go all the way to See Illinois— Page 2 Logansport Kindergarten Roundup In April The 1988 Logansport kindergarten roundup will take place during the first and second weeks of April.
