HAROLD J. BURTON ' &BCHIVSS ASSISTANT laDUHA ST &TS LIBRARY ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA TIPTON (IND.) DA4LY TRIBUNE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK . HELD' BY F.B.I. "COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) — A former Indiana man was arrested here Monday night by : FBI agents and charged with transporting a stolen car from Ft. Wayne, Ind., to Hermosa Beach, Calif. Federal agents said William Martin Loader, 26, had moved to Columbus .from 'Ft Wayne about two months ago and got a job as a'shoe salesman to begin a new life.. Loader was working as a car salesman when he allegedly stole a - car in Ft. Wayne on Aug. 12, according to FBI agents. He was jailed pending a hearing before a U.S. commissioner. MBASSY . AMENDMENTS ASKED INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — A tax specialist for the Indiana State Chamber of Commerce said Monday night "a number of amendments must be made" to clarify the adjusted gross income tax law "and assure equity to the taxpayer." Robert R. Statham, the chamber's taxation director, said at a pre-legislative clinic, the 10th in 18 being held around the state, that replacement of the" tax with a progressive net income tax would "place Indiana at a severe disadvantage for industrial development with its neighboring states." Statham suggested that a $6 per person credit on the tax to compensate for sales taxes paid on food and prescription drugs "perhaps should be adjusted rather than food and prescription drugs exempted from the sales tax." "Tourists do not receive the $6 credit but would benefit from the exempting of 'purchases, and the sorting out of many non-food .items at grocery checkout counters would be a costly detail for merchants," he said. Statham said the state'is living within its means on the basis of the tax program adopted by the 1963 Legislature. Optimistically, he said, Hoosiers might look • forward to "tax stability for the years ahead." But realistically he said we may expect proposals for major changes -in the state tax structure when the 1965 Legislature meets. . TO HONOR RILEY GREENFIELD, Ind.

Barry M. Goldwater, campaigning in Philadelphia's suburbs, declared today that "mi- norty groups run this country.' The Republican presidential nominee resumed his campaign in an address before a crowd of several thousand at a shopping center in Warminister, jBuck County. He said in his statement about minorities he was "speaking about all minority groups" that operate through paid lobbyists or use other pressure tactics. "I think the American people are getting sick and tired of it," Goldwater said. The Arizona senator said this after asserting that many Americans are mistaken "as to what the issues are" in the presidential campaign. Campaign Issue "Simple" He said he would explore this topic more fully in a speech later today in Washington to the annual conference of United Press International editors and publishers. The senator told his Warmin­ ister audience: "The issue in i the campaign, frankly, is a very simple one: What kind of America are we going to have ; tomorrow, 5 years .from now! and 20 years from now? What: kind of America are we going to leave our children? "I don't believe for one moment that the American, people have accepted centralized government." That brought cheers from the crowd. Before embarking on a new campaign tour, Goldwater announced that if elected President he would ask former President- Dwight D. Eisenhower to go to South Viet Nam. He said he would ask the general to undertake the "critical mission" with the aim of solving the crisis there. In his statement -Monday night, Goldwater-said that if he becomes president he will ask Eisenhower "to head up a group o£ qualified experts to go to South Viet Nam and' report back to me on the situation in Southeast Asia." Experienced Assistance He said he hoped Eisenhower would be assisted by such "men of ability and experience" as former Rep. Walter H. Judd, R-Minn.; retired Gen. Mark W. Clark, now president Of The Citadel Military College of "Charleston, S.C., and for- j mer United Nations commander in Korea, and Adm. Arleigh A. Burke, former chief of naval operations. Goldwater's press -secretary, Paul Wagner, said in response to a query that the nominee had not yet. specifically discussed the idea with Eisenhower, although they had talked of the Viet Nam situation generally. Wagner said the idea took shape'at a campaign strategy meeting in Goldwa(Continued on page £) EIGHT KILLED HERE—The City Hail in liratii. La... is a p.ic • Cower down on it.

(UPI)—The FBI Monday entered the hunt for 22-month-oId Ricky Dale Crowder—feared kidnaped from his mother's car when she left him alone for >a few minutes to shop in a drugstore. The toddler disappeared Sunday night. At first it was hoped he had wandered off and WdiSlcT soon be found. But as the hours passed, and a house-to-house search by hundreds of volunteers failed to turn up any trace of him, the hope faded. ; Dale's mother, Mrs. Rex Crowder, 25, said the boy could walk, but was unable to open the car doors himself. There was also doubt the boy would have hust the doors again if he had got out by himself. All.the car doors were closed when Mrs. Crowder returned. She told police she remembered a 1949 or 1950' model blue car parked next to hers in the parking lot of the shopping center where Ricky disappeared. She said she was in the drugstore about 6 or 7 minutes, and both Ricky and the blue car were gone when she returned. Authorities checked dozens of cars fitting the description, but turned up no clues. The' FBI entered the case Monday at the request of city police. (Kidnaping is a federal crime.) "It doesn't matter how he got where he is," said an FBI agent sent in from Tyler, Tex., "all I'm interested in is finding him." . Ricky was wearing only a T-shirt,, diapers, and' sandals. The temperature dropped into the 50s in east Texas Sunday night and was expected to go down to the low 40s Monday night. President and Wife On Campaign Trail By WILLIAM. J.

(UPI) — "I was getting a little hazy but my mind was still running on survival,"' C.F. Neece told his rescurers Monday. The 51-year-old seaman had spent 10 hours clinging to a piece of driftwood while winds as high as 90 miles an hour whipped the Gulf of Mexico. "I never gave up," he said.| "I knew I was going to make it if I could keep from swallowing too much water." Neece was picked up around dawn Monday by a rescue helicopter. His body temperature was down to 94 degrees. Neece, a ruggedly built man, complained only of a sore throat and cold feet. "My feet are still cold from being in the water so long," he said. Neece was a member of the crew of the Bonnie Fortune, a 60-foot pilot vessel driven aground near Dauphin Island Sunday night by high winds and large. waves. When leaping for the deck of the rescue vessel, Neece slipped and fell into the water. He was quickly swept away by the current.

"I needed His help." ! "I knew it was just me, on' my own," he said, when the rescue boat did not follow him. j Doctors who examined Neece i at Brookley Air .

A U.S. Embassy spokesman confirmed only that they were there and would return to Moscow.) Western attaches travel extensively in the Soviet Union as a regular part of their duties. As in the case of their Soviet counterparts stationed in Washington, these trips must be approved by the host government.
