East Chicago is in Lake County which Alabama Gov. G e o r ge C. Wallace captured in the D e m o- cratic presidential primary over Jep Cadou Governor Welsh, a stand-by for Johnson, largely as a protest against the civil rights bill. There likewise.is antagonism to the civil rights measure in Indianapolis because of infiltration of Negroes into previously white areas and proposals to transport white pupils long distances to avoid de facto school segregation. . ' •Goldwater Does Same \ Johnson's presidential rival, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater last week also delivered his major addresses in Indianapolis and in Hammond, Lake County. A few weeks ago* Rep. William E. Miller, OOP vice-presidential nominee, Staged an:extensive speaking jpur of like County with half a dozen speeches. Negroes, who were conspicuous because of their absence at the Goldwater and Miller meetings are expected to' turn out in substantial strength .at. the appearance of the President. Negroes compose more than 30 per cent of the population in Lake County and about 20 per cent in Indianapolis. The major candidates never say that the backlash situation is a factor in their Hoosier scheduling. While in Indiana, Miller was asked a number of times about this vote, but evaded the questions. Goldwater ignored the issue in his Hoosier speeches and there were no news conferences at which he could be asked questions. Republican chiefs of Indiana say privately that they will win part of this Wallace vote for Goldwater. Wallace garnered almost "30 per cent of the Hoosier Democratic primary vote. However, no astute GOP leader believes that-the. percentage will be too formidable. Ted Sen'-; dak, Lake County Republican chairman, estimates the total for his county at 50 per cent, which generally is regarded as optimistic. • But the fact remains that the volume of this vote remains one of the many mysteries of the election campaign this year.

May Have Momentum The possibility that the momentum that carried the Cardinals to the pennant may still 1,600 View First Showing Of Assassination t By MARLYN E. AYCOCK United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Four days in November numbed an unbelieving world last year. Tuesday night, the premiere of a film i on President John F. Kennedy's assassination had almost the same hypnotic effect on 1,600 invited guests. The first showing of "Four Days in November" was at Keith's ' Theater here, a shoft block from the Wfiite HbOse which figured'so-prominently in the two-hour documentary. Producer David L. Wolper combined a skillful blend of newsfilm, still photographs, amateur movies and recreated scenes into a searing record of those four days. The United - States and much of V e world lived those days as they unfolded on television and in print. Wolper's produc- be favoring them was suggest-1 tion - in cooperation with United in late developments Tues day when it became official that slugging third-baseman Ken Boyer and slick-fielding second, baseman Julian Javier will be in today's starting lineup while shortstop Tony Kubek will be lost to the Yankees for the series. Kubek, who had a lack-lustre season although he is regarded as a key man in the smooth-functioning Yankee infield, will be replaced by carefree Phil Xinz, a .250-hit- ter.wtio is capable at many positions. Manager Johnny Keane spoke for all the Cardinals when he refused to 'predict an outright series victory but dismissed the thought that the Redbirds might find tie pressure of the classic too much for them. Pressure Heavy The pressure has been heavy and we've gone through it," said Keane, - referring to the tense ordeal of the final days of the National League race. It did us a world of good. I'm sure it prepared the players! I know it prepared me. I thought there was pressure he continued. "And we felt it mount until the middle of the last game. Then, when the big Philadelphia scores began to go up on the scoreboard against Cincinnati, we relaxed right away. We're pretty loose and we're going into this in real' good shape." . Rival Manager Yogi. Berra refused to predict' he'll win a Worid Series to climax his rookie season at the head of the Yankee dynasty, but commented, "we're, not worried; we can take care of ourselves."

Drama Increased The assassination came near the midway point. For an hour, the drama built up until the presidential car turned a Dallas stseet corner and a shot rang out. •' The screen went blank for several seconds, symbolizing the inability of the mind to grasp what had happened. .Then the camera recaptured the frenzy in the Dallas street — Mrs. Kennedy pulling the Secret Service agent onto the rear of .the car, the dash to Parkland Hospital, the blind- man's buff search for a culprit. And then the grief. The following days of national sorrow in Washington were interrupted. by sudden switches to the confusion in the halls of the Dallas police station and the incredible murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. The film made no attempt to interpret Oswald's motives. It assumed his guilt on the evidence available just as the Warren Commission did 10 days ago in concluding that Oswald acted for reasons known to him alone and without help.

The engineer will inspect the pool and consult with local authorities regarding repair. • It is expected that a new floor will be' recommended, along with a reinforcement of ; the walls, with some of the piping to be replaced. City spokesmen advised that-) the pump.for the pool is now' at the/factory being overhauled. , The city hopes to do much of the repair on the pool with city workmen, holding the, cost to a minimum.

NEAL JOHNSON Democratic Ticket DETROIT (UPI) — The United Auto Workers union and American Motors Corp. met today in negotiations that could determine the fate of the only profit-sharing contract pattern in the auto industry. Douglas Fraser, director of the UAW Chrysler department, said Tuesday . that AMC had had made an economic offer that would force the union "to decide whether or not to continue with progress sharing." Fraser said that the AMC proposals called for a continuation of profit sharing but would pay for many of the fringe benefits won from the big three of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler out of the profit sharing, fund. At General Motors, negotiators continued their countdown of local settlements in an effort to end a crippling 13-day strike by more than a quarter million workers. GM and the UAW reached agreement on a national contract Monday and top bargainers said they hoped the national settlement would speed up completion of local negotiations at 130 bargaining units around the country.

Losing iters War Told WASHINGTON (UPI) — A newspaper editor who recently visited Southeast Asia reported today that "we are losing the war in Viet Nam." , The warning was sounded by Burton A. Chardak, assistant city editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin, at the annual conference of United Press International Editors and Publishers. Chardak took part in a panel discussion which featured reports by traveling editors on world trouble-spots they have visited during the past few months. Harry Buraham, managing editor of the St. Paul (Minn.) Dispatch, presided as panel chairman. Other participants were Miles H. Wolff of the ' Greensboro (N.C.) news; -John Strohmeyer of the Bethlehem (Pa.) Globe-Times; and Otto Zausmer of the Boston Glohe.

Increased benefits for retired workers also would be paid for from the amount set aside for profit sharing, he said. "Unless the company has a tremendous year, the- proiits won't generate enough to pay for the benefits," Fraser saiJ. The union's complaint, he said, is that the cost of the benefits charged to profit sharing might cause AMC workers to give up their annual improvement factor raises. They consist of annual pay boosts of 2.5 per cent or six cents an hour, whichever is greater. The current contract covering about 27,000 AMC workers expires Oct. 15.

Their wives were guests of cabinet wives at a White House reception. Military Is Best Cardak said U.S. - miltary men risking their lives in Viet. Nam were "the best this country has." But even their heroism has been insufficient, he said, to cope with the "Alice-in- Wonderland" complexities of a struggle in which the unstable, coup-torn government is beset on all sides .by hit-and-run tactics of the Communist Viet Cong. - 1 Chardak said U.S. military officers bluntly acknowledged that the government controls the big brought in from Red China, he said. Zausmer saw hope for better days on. the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, torn by civil war and between Greek and Turkish inhabitants. I Laid Down Law I He said Greek Prime Minister .Georges Papandreou, strongly backed by young King Constantine, had "laid down the law" to Archbishop Makarios, president of Cyprus to quit flirting with Russia and permit a reasonable settlement of the conflict. "This might open the door to a real solution for the suffering island," Zausmer said. Wolff gave a country-by-country report on the situation in Latin America. In Brazil, he said, the new government systematically had weeded out Communists and Communist sympathizers and had begun to loop plug loopholes in tax laws. But "the answers to basic social and economic problems have not been found," he said. He found Argentina 's economy on the upgrade but said the government of Dr. Arturo W.

Wolff predicted/that the Communist, government in British Guiana probably will fall in the November elections and said :that if Premier Cbeddi Jagan : ^resists;- the, electorate's repudiation,, this , may . bring es of'Communist propaganda) He suggested that "our hard- to the newspapers in Kenya ' - (Continued on page 8) Halloween Warning Parents of children and teen agers, are being warned by Tipton police authorities that pre-Halloween and Halloween vandalism will not be tolerated, and those caught will be taken into custody, with parents having to make a trip to the. police station to talk with police. It has been decided that units of Civil Defense will not be used locally, unless deemed necessary. However, state, sheriff's office and city men will be on duty and follow up any reports of vandalism. Chief Pratt pointed out that the usual routine of fun is expected, admonishing car owners to lock their doors if they do not wish to have 'pinned down' horns, a nuisance, but not necessarily an act of vandalism. It is stressed however, that other automobile acts of true vandalism will not be tolerated, and if apprehended, the offenders will be prosecuted, parents being responsible for damages that may be incurred. "Prior to Halloween parents should know where . the children are," Pratt stated. "Many parents, whose children and teenagers are caught while in the act of vandalism, are shocked and surprised at their whereabouts," he added, i He also observed that: "many kids want attention they do not get at home, and turn to vandalism to create a sKr."
