HAROLD-J. BURTON Aacar/ss- ASSISTANT INDIANA STATS LIBRARY ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER OCTOBER #, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON, INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 9 TIPTON (IND.) DAILY TRIBUNE WEDNESDA \, 1895 AT I ' , OCT. J4, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK By EUGENE J. CADOU United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Those; who sniff the political winds say Richard M. Nixori may run for the 1968 Republican presidential! nomination, if Sen. Barry M. Goldwater loses in November. The former vice-president and 1960 GOP standard bearer will be in the Hoosier spotlight Thursday when he speaks in behalf of Sen. Ooldwater in Fort Wayne, Elkhart and Marion.' Nixon is speaking in many other parts of the nation .these days. He made a "vigorous, speaking appearance with Goldwater on television a week ago. A number of observers opined that Nixon rivaled the presidential nominee in the television program. •Indiana Republican Gov. Harold W. Handley was a pioneer Nixon leader long before he won the GOP Whitehouse nomination and kept Indiana in line all the way. This state was. the banner state for Nixon in the election with his largest per capita victory over John F. Kennedy — a lead of 222,762 votes. The fact that Nixon's mother was born in Jennings County helped the nominee. Nixon Bridges Gap It has been pointed out that Nixon probably could bridge the huge gap between the conservative and the eastern liberal factions of the Republican pajty. His formidable drive for Sen. Goldwater cannot* help but endear him to the fervent backers of the Arizona senator, and he likewise has rather close ties with the liberals of the party. In I960, Nixon flew to New York to confer with New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller. The result was that Nixon agreed to accept a number of the liberal planks in the party's national platform. Nixon's loser stigma, resulting from his abortive bid - for governor.of California, seems to be fading and his move to New York eventually may further his political career. He is considered by observers to be less of a carpetbagger in New York than Robert F. Kennedy, Democrat, now striving to be elected U. S. senator with only a token residence in the. Empire State. Nixon, at least," has practiced law and lived in New York several years, they say. *" Rockefeller Fading The marital status of Rockefeller appears to remain a frustration for his political future, especially since custody of his wife's children was awarded by a court decision to her first husband. Pennsylvania Gov. William Scranton seems never to have caught fire with the GOP leaders and Michigan Gov. George^ Romney will be mighty lucky if he wins reelection. Former Massachusetts Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge remains a lieutenant of President Johnson's administration after service in Viet Nam and now as a roving ambassador to explain the situation there to our allies. There are no others on the 1968 horizon for the GOP, if Barry loses. Then, who but Nixon? Ideal Weather As Yanks Seek To Even Series By TIM MORIARTY UPI Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (UPI) — The New York Yankees, struggling to avoid elimination in the World Series, sent Jim Bouton out to face the St. Louis Cardinals today in the sixth game.

It was a "do or die" assignment for Bouton.

Johnson Tests Popularity In Eastern States By WILLIAM J. EATON United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—President Johnson, the big drawing card of the ' 1964 campaign, tests his popularity today in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York where a total of 89 electoral votes are at stake. The 'President, how returned early Tuesday from a 10,000- mile, 14-state four of the Midwest and West, was scheduled to" leave Andrews Air Force Base, Md., this morning for Teterboro, N.J. His first speech was set at the Bergan Mall Shopping Center in Paramus, N.J., in traditionally Republican Bergen County. . From New Jersey, Johnson planned to fly to the Scranton- Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Airport for a Democratic rally at noon, EDT, before going on to New York City, where he will spend the night. The President had no afternoon appointments scheduled in New York, but he was to attend the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner tonight at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Thursday Johnson flies to upstate New York for speeches at Rffchester and Buffalo returning to the New York City area to dedicate a fedjeral site in Brooklyn and attend a liberal party rally. His election chances in New York state are considered excellent. Some political observers predict he may carry the state, and its 43 electoral votes, by a much wider margin than John F. Kennedy's 383,666-vote edge in 1960. How well Johnson runs in New York may help determine the outcome of the hot senator(Continued on page 8) Barry Pounds On Democratic # Cover-Up # By ALVIN SPIVAK United Press International KANSAS CITY, Mo, (UPI)— Sen. Barry M. Goldwater followed up a "fascist" charge against the Democratic party today by accusing President Johnson of "obstruction of justice" in the Bobby Baker case. The Republican presidential nominee moved into the home territory of former Democratic- President Harry S Truman in a second day of Midwestern campaigning this week. Truman was famed for his "give 'em hell" campaign in 1948 and Goldwater avowedly was doing the same as his election race neared its end. "Give 'em hell, Barry," a supporter shouted at Des Moines,. Iowa, one of Goldwater's stumping stops Tuesday. "That's what I'm trying to do," Goldwater replied amid roaring approval. - The senator climaxed his effort Tuesday night before a wildly cheering throng of some 8,000 supporters who paid $50 apiece to hear him at the Milwaukee Arena.-*He used a local issue—ouster of Milwaukee alderman Robert D\y.yer by the Democratic party for supporting Goldwater — to denounce the Democrats as a "fascist organization.' Goldwater's barnstorm i n g schedule today included stops at Kansas City,. Mo.; Omaha, Neb.; and Denver, Colo. In a speech prepared for a rally at the Liberty Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Mo., today, Goldwater returned to the Bobby Baker issue which up to Tuesday night had highlighted his campaigning day. Goldwater said at Des Moines that he had just been informed (Continued on page 8) Whitewash Is Alleged Over Baker Case WASHINGTON (UPI) — A Republican senator charged today that Senate investigators Jjisd no intentiionpf mringljig put the facts on an alleged $35,000 political " kickback involving Bobby Baker. Sen. Carl Curtis, R-Nev., said Democrats on the Senate Rules Committee are "merely going through the motions of pretending to investigate" the case of the former Senate Democratic secretary. Committee Ghairman B. Everett Jordan, D-N.C, ruled out hearings in the Baker investigation, until after the Nov. 3 election. He suggested that fair hearings could not be held "in the heat of a bitter political campaign." Curtis, ranking Republican member, immediately sent a letter to Jordan asking him to hold hearings before the election. He promised to be present with 48 hours notice. The accusation by Curtis followed a charge by Republican National Committee Chairman Dean Burch that Jordan was acting on "orders from higher up." "This action is a' shameful admission by the Johnson administration that it is afraid to face the truth about this major Democrat scandal," Burch said. "It underscores the major issue in-the presidential campaign, the moral rot in Washington." Jordan's decision was certain to lend impetus to Republican presidential candidate Barry M. Goldwater's use of the Baker case in his charge of corruption in the administration. Goldwater has made the Baker case a major point'in his (Continued on page 8) Mrs. Lovla Dozler displays a sample of the new graen-and-whlte Indiana licanta platas for 1965 which will go on sal* January 2 at the Avte Llcans* branch in tha Tipton County Courthbust.

(UPI)— Former President Harry S Truman awoke in a jovial mood today despite two cracked ribs in -a fall in the bathroom of his home. A hospital spokesman said Truman read the morning newspaper, after awaking early as usual, and had his customary dietary breakfast of orange juice? toast and bacon. A medical advisory said the former President's "neurological reflexes are good and the right eye is clearing." It added that his vision was not impaired. Truman had some lung con- gestioin on the left side but the hospital said this was not unusual in injuries of this type. It was described as a secondary reaction to bleeding and swelling caused by two cracked ribs. The 80-year-old Truman was reported in satisfactory condition, cheerful and alert. A spokesman at Research Hospital said Truman would remain in the hospital "for some time" to receive a regular six-month checkup which was overdue. The spokesman said the 33rd President of the United States slipped on a mat while getting into the' bathtub and fell forward to his right side, causing a severe cut above his right eye. His eyeglasses were broken and several pieces of glass cut his right eyelid. "The former President also suffered multiple concusions about the right eyebrow and | forehead," the spokesman announced. "In falling, he struck his' chest on the side of the jtub, fracturing two ribs." I No visitors were allowed in • his room. Truman was reported to have lost consci )usness after falling. He was riis"hed by ambulance the 12 miles from his home and was carried into the emergency room on a stretcher. He was in the emergency room more than an hour while X- rays were taken. Truman, who left the White House after seven years in office in 1952, has been active in recent years. He has cut out some activities since he underwent surgery for a hernia in 1963. .Patrolman Harold McPherson said he answered a request for aid that was relayed from the Truman residence by the Independence police dispatcher at 3:48 p.m. He found Truman, clad in underclothes, on his knees bending over the bathtub (Continued on page 8) Two Accidents • Occur in County One accident investigated by state police and one by. the Tipton County Sheriff, were reported today to the Tribune.

Robert Tolle and Mark Ertel, co-chairmen, of the drive, heard reports by local workers that there was a general lack of interest among people who heretofore had been quite generous in their contributions.

YOUNG United Press International CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex. (UPI) — A reported threat to assassinate President Johnson led sheriff's deputies Tuesday night and today to an arsenal including weapons as big as a field mortar and a collection of Nazi relics. The deputies arrested Julius Schmidt, 29, a plumber and gun trader, and another unidentified man who'' worked on guns. Deputies and police still sought the man who made the reported threat—a former mental patient believed to be in the Corpus Christi area. "I do not believe there was a plot to kill the President, but I do think' that one individual made such a statement (to kill the President) to,an informant I trust 100 per cent," Sheriff Johnnie Mitchell said today. 'President Johnson is due in Corpus Christi Sunday to make a campaign speech. Two Not Involved Mitchell said Schmidt and the other man arrested -were not involved in a plot. He said his informant told him that the man who threatened the President intended to buy a gun from- Schmidt! but had not made the attempt ; Schmidt was arrested to cut off the man's "source of. supply." -Mitchell said the man wanted a "fully... automatic weapon" and he wi" look' for three or four other persons who . have automatic weapons. Mitchell said he was taking no chances. "I want to cut off his possible source of supply,' Mitchell said. "There Is a possibility the threat on the President's life could have been serious knowing the type of man he (the suspect) is." Schmidt and the other prisoner were scheduled for arraignment today before U.S. Commissioner James Martin on charges of violating the federal arms act The assistant repaired guns that would not shoot Schmidt served two years in the state penitentiary ' on charges or murdering a man.

' Weapons were found both, in Schmidt's home and his mother's. Mitchell said Schmidt's wife helped them in the search and showed them where to find weapons. She pulled a submachine gun from under her bed. Mitchell said all the weapons, except the submachine gun, were in "perfect working order.." Feels City Is Safe "I feel a lot better now that we are on to the man (who made the threat),". Mitchell said in a news conference in his office in the Nueces County courthouse. "By the time we are through, the President or anyone else can come to Corpus Christi and feel safe." President Johnson will visit Laredo and Corpus' Chrisii, Tex., Sunday.
