Bontrager: Touring Knox County factories during day. Indianapolis tonight* for dinner honoring Rep. Donald Bruce. By United Press International President Johnson swung through Indiana Thursday with a Republican c o n g r e s sional "truth squad" hot on his heels. Johnson had barely, finished his speech to an estimated 30,000 to 40,000 persons at Monument Circle in Indianapolis before the three squad members held a news conference to dispute the campaign arguments he used in the speech and in an earlier appearance at East Chicago. The squad, made up of Sen. Carl T. Curtis, Neb., and Reps. Robert Michel, 111., and Charles Goddell, N.Y., called the John,son administration "the most corrupt in American history." They charged gross irregularities in the award of the TFX airplane contract and contended the administration "w h i t e washed" the Bobby Baker and Billie; Sol Estes cases. They also attacked Democratic farm programs and contended that the farm parity index of 75 per cent was the lowest since 1939. They also maintained that the Republican platform is actually stronger on the civil rights issue than the Democratic platform. Ignores Security Disregarding elaborate .security measures set up for him, Johnson turned on his Texas charm during a half-day which saw him stop for coffee at the ' home of a Gary steelworker, handshake his way through crowds along his routes and issued blanket invitations to "come to the inauguration."Following his Indianapolis speech, Johnson had a private luncheon with Eugene C. Pulliam, publisher of the Indianapolis Star and the Indianapolis News. He also talked by telephone with former Sen. Homer Capehart, R-Ind. Johnson was accompanied on his visit to Indiana, which has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1936; by Sen. Vance Hartke, D- Ind., and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Roger Branigin. Hartke ! and Branigin joined their Republican opposite numbers, senatorial nominee D. Russel Bontrager, and Lt. Gov. Richard O. Ristine, the GOP gubernatorial nominee, Thursday night for a dinner meeting of the directors of the New York Central Railroad. Pulliam also was host for that meeting. Hits Hartke Record . Bontrager also was on hand Thursday night at Lebanon for a GOP fish fry at which he characterized Hartke as a senator who "talks economy with his right hand but votes for bigger spending every time he gets a chance." He said Hartke's votes have "paved the way for this administration to outspend the Kennedy administration by $2 million a day and the Eisenhower administration by $5 million a day." Earlier Thursday at Kokomo, Bontrager attacked the Johnson administrjation for selling more He said tallow is a pr al in red than 700 million pounds, of tallow to Russia and its satellites. He said tallow is a principal ingredient in the manufacture of ammunition.' •• Speaking at the Western Electric Co.' plant in Indianapolis, Ristine said" the state. must. do. more ; to attract outstanding young' people into state government 'service. .

The local group includes Irvin Banta, executive secretary of the Tipton County Chamber of Commerce; Tipton County Camir.y.sioner Robert Stoops; Coun.ty Extension Agent Walter Clary; Gene Huffman, ;and Carl Heath. The session was sponsored jointly by the Tipton, Kokomo, Logansport and Rochester chambers of commerce. Business leaders from Howard, Cass, Fulton, Miami and Tipton counties attend the meeting, which was co-sponsored by the local chambers in coopera- ation with the Indiana State Chamber of Commerce. The clinic, a preview of problems which will face the 19G5 Indiana Legislature, is or j of 18 such area meetings being held throughout the state. Kokomo area Hoosiers were urged at last night's session to "keep Indiana competitive." Jchn V. Barnett, State Chamber executive vice president, told the group: "We in Indiana have to set a goal for ourselves. It is up to us as citizens, working with our public officials, to determine how high we want to go in meeting the promise of the future." "The business people of the state must be still more aggressive in public affairs." Barnett continued. "They must- take stands on key public issues, and protect and promote these stands. Who else' better than the businessman on the daily firing line knows and understands what makes the economy tick?" Research specialists of the State Chamber discussed potential areas of major decision of the 1965 Legislature. Subjects of taxation, education, personnel and labor relations, unemployment compensation and workmen's compensation were explored.
