Hartke: East Chicago and Indianapolis with President Johnson this morning, touring Marion County this afternoon, in Indianapolis tonight'. By United Press International Indiana Democrats had their day today as President Johnson came into the state for the first - time to campaign in East Chicago and Indianapolis. Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., and gubernatorial nominee Roger Branigin were scheduled to meet Johnson in Chicago and accompany him to East Chicago for a speech at East Chicago Washington High School and to Indianapolis where he was to speak from, the steps of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Johnson was the last of the four candidates on the national tickets to make a campaign ap- ' pearance in the state. Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater and his running mate, Rep. William •Miller, R- N.Y., and Democratic vice presidential .nominee Hubert Humphrey have been in the state on previous occasions. Goldwater's wife', 'Peggy, appeared in her hometown- of Muncie Wednesday, along with her four children but kept her ^campaigning in a low key. She "declined to answer political questions at a news conference and left the speaking to others, principally her son, Barry Jr., and GOP senatorial nominee D. Russell Bontrager. v Mrs. Goldwater's day began with her arrival at Muncie's Johnson Airport, named for her uncle, where she was greeted by about 200 old friends and a band playing "Back Home In Indiana." Son Is Emcee A reception at Ball State Teachers College turned into a stage show after some of the 4,000 persons present began complaining about the long wait in line to meet Mrs. Goldwater. Barry Jr. acted as master of ceremonies for the show in which he introduced his mother, his brother, Michael, and his sisters, Mrs. Thomas Ross and Mrs. Richard Holt. Speaking at the rally Wednesday night, Bontrager continued- his attack on Hartke for the alleged use of federal employes in his campaign for re-election. He noted that county agricultural agents are forbidden to take part in politics -because part of their salary comes from the federal government but produced what he said was a letter to a county agent ordering him to work for Hartke. He .said the letter was signed by C. Luther Scott, Hartke 's research assistant. "Scott is a federal employe oh Hartk's staff," Bontrager said. "He should be back in Washington performing the duties for which he was hired." Lt. Gov. Richard O. i Ristine, the GOP gubernatorial nominee, spent the day with Mrs. Goldwater and then went to Columbus Wednesday night for a 'speech in which he accused the administration of Democratic Governor Welsh of using the State Highway Department for political purposes. Hits Highwr.y Department He said a political' statement attacking him was printed on Highway Department equipment, mailed in a Highway Department envelope and "run through a Highway Department postage meter. "Instead of a Highway Department dedicated to building roads, the Welsh administration has created a Highway Department that builds political propaganda," Ristine said. Speaking at a Democratic fund raising dinner at South Bend Wednesday night, Branigin predicted a victory for Johnson and Humphrey in the Nov. 3 election.

Johnson Brings Campaign Drive To Indiana Today Engineer Makes Recommendation For Pool Repair Richard O. Albright, field engineer for Portland Cement Association, inspected the Tipton swimming pool yesterday afternoon to determine the possibility of repairs and to make recommendations on improvements to existing facilities. Accompanying Mr. Albright were: John Plake, Street Com-, missioner; -Bruce Horton, as a member of the Tipton Board of Works; and J. D. Whitehead, president of Tipton Utility Service Board, which supplies water for .this installation. Engineer Albright recommended that the bottom of the pool •be reconditioned iby patching and repairing all damaged and weakened places, and be made as smooth as possible. He stated that at a future date, funds being available, a new 4 inch floor could be poured over the existing one. The new floor suggested by Albright was -of floating construction., being separated from the existing pool bottom by pliofilm or roofing felt, .thus allowing it to expand and contract without influencing the old construction. He stated that such a new bottom had been laid in the pool at Garfield Park in Indianapolis with good results. (Continued on page 8) THE WORLD SERIES managers.

(UPI) —(President Johnson, barnstorming the Midwest and bidding for an election day landslide said today immigration laws should be revised because they "discriminate on the basis of national origin." He made the proposal in Indiana's steel-making Lake County, where the Polish vote is powerful. Johnson was on a cross - country campaign tour which started with enthusiastic crowds in the Midwest's corn belt Wednesday. He was scheduled to press on to Indianapolis and Cleveland, Ohio, for more speeches today. On a high school football field in East Chicago, Johnson said: "There is no limit to what American can be—if only we remain true to the yleals that have guided us. so long and so well. Laws Discriminate "That is why we must do something about the immigration laws. These laws discriminate on the basis of national origin. "Two-thirds of the national immigration quota goes under that law to people who never use all their quota," the President said. He proposed gradual elimination of the quotas which he called discriminatory and a raise of 2,000 in the over-all immigration limit. He said the increase would amount to "l-80th of one per cent of our work force." (Rep. William E. Miller, GOP vice presidential candidate, said in northern Indiana last month that Johnson's immigration policies would "open the floodgates." Sen: Barry M. Goldwater, Republican presidential candidate, in another campaign stop in the area last month, referred to his own 'Polish - background but made • no comment on immigration policies.) Traditionally' Democratic East Chicago, where Johnson started his day of campaigning, is in Lake County just across the state line from Chicago and part of the giant south Chicago steel - making complex. The county is traditionally Democratic, but'last spring it gave its vote in the Democratic presidential primary to segregationist Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama over favorite son Gov. Matthew Welsh, regarded as a stand-in for Johnson. Tke county, which also includes the cities of Gary, Hammond and Whiting, has a large Negro population, and is being watched closely by both sides for signs of a so-called "white backlash" vote. Johnson launched his first campaign foray into Indiana after Wednesday's whirlwind tour through -Iowa and Illinois which saw him draw record crowds and draw from the crowds a tonic which intensified and accelerated his campaign pace. In Pes Moines,. Springfield and Peoria; _ the President periodically stepped from his new Kokomo Votes For Reduction Of Gym Seats KOKOMO, Ind. (UPI) — The Kokomo, School Board voted unanimously Wednesday night to comply with recommendations from the state fire marshal's office to reduce the seating capacity in the city's high school gymnasium by more than 2,300 seats. Temporarily, at least, that will make the seating capacity in Memorial Gymnasium 4,581. The original was 6,912. School officials were taking immediate steps, however, to recover some of the seats in time for this season's high school basketball campaign, which opens next month. Kokomo is one of the largest high school gymnasiums in Indiana. The fire-proof building is in its 15th year of operation. The recommendation to reduce the seating. capacity, signed by chief inspector William C. Workman of the state fire marshal's office, is one of several that have been or. are being mailed to school officials throughout the state. The state-wide inspections were ordered as a precautionary measure months ago following the Halloween night Fairgrounds Coliseum explosion in Indianapolis which killed 74 persons and injured about 400 others. Recommendations based on the initial round of inspections later withdrawn because schools did not have sufficient nredicted the Democrats i time to com P lv for lhe ' i964 Sf: 3" folate high school basketball tourney, j The Indiana High School Athletic Association turned a list of "probable" 1965 state tourney sites over to the state fire marshal during the summer and the inspections are still in. process. Workman said his inspectors found that "about 12" gymnasiums were so far in violation of the state building code. He said although his office does not have the power of enforcement, the recommendations leave individual schools two alternatives — to reduce seating capacity er install additional exits.- If a school refuses to comply, he said state officials could take the case to court. In Kokomo's case, athletic director Bud Overton said school officials have engaged an architect "to see what can be done." "We hope to recover all of these seats in the long run," he said. But as a starter, Kokomo's seating capacity was reduced in Compliance with the recommendations of the state fire marshal office. Overton said there has "never been any problem" from a safety standpoint at Kokomo. "If this had to happen, I wish they would have notified us much earlier," he said. "The timing is very poor. I think all our people ,feel the same way about it—they're not happy at all." Workman did not disclose the of other schools which glass - enclosed limousine to wave his 10-gallon hat to the crowds that jammed the motorcade route and thank them for j w( | re turning out. He in November "will have,' the greatest victory it has had in the history "of the country." Iowa Gov. Harold Hughes said, the Des Moines turnout was unparalleled in Iowa history and exceeded the crowd of 125,000 persons which welcomed former President Dwight D. •Eisenhower in 1956. Hughes said he thought Johnson would get 55 per cent of the Iowa vote in November. Illinois Gov. Otto Kerner drew similar conclusions from large turnouts in the usually Republican cities of Pedria and Springfield. He also 'predicted that Johnson would win handily. "Vote Democratic in November," was one of the messages Johnson punches home to the throngs in motorcades and at rallies. In the harsK glare of floodlights at Chicago's O'Hare Field, well after dark Wednesday night, he told several thousand well-wishers that "if you people do your duty, the Democratic Party will have the greatest victory it has had in the history of the country." In an impromptu and unscheduled appearance before the Illinois AFL-CIO convention in Peoria, Johnson told the delegates to get down to the business of getting - their uncles and aunts to the polls "to elect Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey by the greatest landslide ..." The rest was buried in a shout of applause. That unscheduled speech also ' names saw Johnson deal bluntly with j have also been asked to reduce the question of' overconfidence seating capacity in their" gym- as posed by the polls which nasiums because letters to that (Continued on page 8) I effect have not yet been mailed.

KILLEN United Press International SAIGON, Viet Nam (UPI) — One of two U.S. Army helicopters shot down Wednesday by supposedly Communist gunfire was actually brought down by friendly troops, Vietnamese military sources said today. In one of the classic mistakes of warfare, the helicopter had killed 25 Vietnamese militiamen and wounded 27 of them before the survivors turned and fired on it in despair to stop the slaughter, the sources said;. The story was not confirmeil by the U.S. military establishment here. An American spokesman first said there wa- "no substance" to the report, but later modified this to "cannot confirm or deny." The militiamen wear the same black paiama-type clothing that the Communist guerrillas do. Sub-Brig. Gen.
