"HAaOLD J. BURTQM ARCHIV £5 ASSISTANT INDIANA STATS LIBEAR ISDIASAP0LI3, INDIANA- ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 8 TIPTON (IND.) DAILY TRIBUNE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1964. 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK . Hoosier Candidates Today By United Press International Ristine: At Anderson College, then to Indianapolis for a retail council meeting at noon and on to Kokomo for a dinner. Brr.nigin: From Indianapolis to Logansport at noon and a tour of Cass • County at night. Bontrager: A saturation campaign tour of -Floyd County. Hartke: Tell City and Sullivan in the morning^ to Washington, Ind., at noon, .back to Tell City and Cannelton for an airport dedication. By United Press International Sen. Vance Hartke, D-Ind., said today a Republican charge calling.him a "detestable liar" and "close associate of Bobby Baker" was a,baseless personal attack by a frightened opponent going down "like a drowning man." Earlier, State'Sen. D. Russell Bontrager. Hartke's opponent, told a Columbus Day rally at Shelbyville that the senior senator had frequently entertained the former Senate secretary at his home. Bontrager said Hartke falsely accused him of opposing social security measures in the state legislature. "Sen. Barry Goldwater's candidate for the Senate in Indiana obviously has taken a cue from his boss," said Hartke in a statement from Cory don. He referred to personal attacks he said were made by Goldwater • on President Johnson. Like Drowning Man "When a drowning man is going down he flails his arms around. When a drowning candidate goes down he does the same with his voice," he said. Earlier, Hartke's wife, Martha, saw the charge in a wire service story and immediately labeled it false. She said Baker had never been. in her home "to my knowledge." Earlier, Hartke was in Washington to accept a medal from the Assembly of Captive European Nations. At an evening Corydon speech Monday he said no single issue in the campaign was "safe from reactionary thinking." He cited three recessions during Republican administrations in recent years and said leadership under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson had brought "an era of .steadily increasing prosperity." Roger Branigin, Democratic . candidate for governor, Monday unveiled a two-point plan in a statement at Indianapolis. He said his election could mean establishment of a bi-partisan board of Hoosier statesmen to advise him on important matters. "Beef Sessions" Plan He also said he would consider conducting "beef sessions" in various parts of the state so individual citizens could bring their problems direct to the governor. He '. said department heads wpuld possibly go along on the sessions to deal directly with any trouble. No Speeches, Free Supper At GOP Rally "Enjoy a night on the Republican Party", is the invitation of Tipton County Republi can chairman Paul "Red" Jones in extending a greeting to all voters, regardless of political inclination, to attend a free supper at the 4-H building from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday. The meal will include ham, beans, cornbread, coffee and pie. . The get-together, Jones explained will be a distinct departure from normal political rallies in that there are no speeches on the program. All sta : te and local candidates will be present for the rally, but their activity, instead of political speeches and diatribes, will be John Feighner ' limited to mingling with the. voters in friendly, informal fashion • to enable the ..voters^to. "size them up", and to answer any questions those in the gathering may doubt about. There will be continous music throughout the evening, alternated hourly by musical organizations from Windfall, Sharpsville-Prairie and Tipton Community High Schools. Leading the local offering of candidates will be John R. 'Feighner, Republican Candidate for Congress from the fifth district. Feighner's appearance in Tipton will be the prelude to a "John R. Feighner Day" in Grant County, Thursday where former Vice President Richard Nixon will give a personal boost to his qualifications. The day will start with a 7:30 breakfast at the Gee Cee Inn in Gas City at which GOP candidates for Lieutenant Governor will speak.
