He said that sound guidelines should •be .followed in measuring the effectiveness and desirability of various proposals. "We must make certain the proposals will assist the farm operator in preserving his economic independence," Roush declared. "We must - be certain a proposal will work .toward the efficient and equitable operation of our free market system." | Roush also said programs shjsuld be measured as to their flexibility to meet changing conditions. "They should be measured as to their continuity so that the individual farmer can more easily plan his operations, not from one year to the next, but from one to the next two, three, and four." • Among spectators at the program were students from St. Joseph's Academy.

(TRIBUNE Phete-Engravmf) Top Johnson Aide Resigns Following Arrest On Morals WASHINGTON (UPI)—A top ter-Miller, said the arrest of aide to President Johnson has : Jenkins on" morals charges resigned following disclosure of i "represents both personal trag- his arrest on morals charges edy and a national misfortune." on two occasions. j "Certainly human feelings of The resignation of Walter W.' compassion for Mr. Jenkins Jenkins as special assistant to the President was announced Wednesday night by White House Press Secretary George E. Reedy in New York City where Johnson is campaigning Reedy told a hastily called news conference in a hallway of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel that the President had named Bill D. Moyers, another White House aide, to succeed Jenkins. Jenkins, 46, who figured prominently in the Bobby Baker case, was in seclusion in George Washington University Hospital where his physician said he was suffering from "nervous exhaustion and high blood pressure." "Just Worn Out" Dr. Charles Thompson. said that Jerikins, an aide to Johnson for more than 20 years, had "just worn himself out" and probably would remain in the hospital for four or five days. Washington police records showed that Jenkins was arrested on Oct. 7 in the men's room of the YMCA on a charge of "disorderly (indecent gestures)." He elected to forfeit $50 bond on the misdemeanor charge. The records showed that Jenkins, married and the father of six, also was arrested oh Jan. 15, 1959, at the YMCA on a charge of "disorderly conduct (pervert)." On that occasion, he forfeited a $25 bond. A White House source said that no reports of "any incident of this kind" relating to Jenkins had ever come to the attention of the White House at any time prior to Wednesday's disclosures. Had Security Clearance These sources said they assumed Jenkins had security clearance because of his, job as an aide to the President, but they did not know the extent of this clearance. The startling development left a big question mark hanging over the presidential campaign — what would be its" political impact coming only three •weeks before the Nov. 3 election? Republican presidential nominee Barry M. Goldwator, who is campaigning in Texas, de« clined- any comment on Jenkins' resignation. In a speech prepared for delivery at Harlingen, Goldwater accused Johnson of "using every power of his great office ... to cover up one of the sorriest rumors we have ever had in the nation's capital." But he told reporters he was referring to the Baker case, not Jenkins. Made No Comment GOP vice presidential candidate William Ei Miller, in Terre Haute, Ind., was shown a wire service dispatck on Jenkins' arrest. Miller smiled and said he had no comment. P. Clifton White, national director of Citizens For Goldwa'r and his family and community will be the first thought of millions of Americans," White said. "The fact that this situation involves the White: House 5. ^Official family, however^ makes it more than a personal tragedy. The effects upon America, both nationally and internationally, can be only surmised at this time." Jenkins' arrests were disclosed in a check of District of Columbia police records after rumors swept Washington that he had been taken into custody last week by members of the police department's morals division. Third Storm Pounds Florida; Damage Spread MIAMI (UPI)—Hurricane Isbell pointed its 100 mile-an-hour winds into the open Atlantic today, leaving Florida, counting injuries and property damage from its third storm lashing of the season. Tornadoes that spread scattershot fashion ahead of Isbell's northeastward slash across the Florida peninsula accounted for most of at least 50 injuries and the battering given buildings, house trailers, airplanes and vehicles from Cape Kennedy to Miami. There was one fatality in Florida attributed to the storm, 62-year-old Paul-Kartis of Lake 'Worth, who suffered a fatal heart attack while boarding up his home. Isbell, nintli tropical storm and sixth hurricane of the season, also left at least four dead and heavy crop damage in western Cuba, which it .crossed Tuesday. The damage in (Florida was uncounted. Civil defense authorities and local officials set out today to assess the battering, but it appeared scattered rather rather than general. At 9 a.m. EDT, Isbell's center was located about 250 -miles east of Jacksonville Beach, Fla. It moved on a north T northeasterly course at -20 m. p.h. and- forecasters said it would' turn northeasterly tonight over the open ocean. Highest winds were still at 100 miles an hour and the craft to remain in port from Florida to Cape Hatteras. Huge Crowd Turns Out For Republican Rally Probably the largest Tipton rally in the party's history turned out last night to greet a slate of Republican state, county and local candidates at the i;H 'building. County chairman Paul "Red" Jones jubilantly exclaimed "did ycu ever see anything like it? I'll bet we've fed over 1,000 persons." There were no speeches, but the candidates mingled with the crowd in a friendly atmosphere that enabled the voters to inspect them at their leisure, talk with them, ask their stands on various issues and meet the rest of the candidates' families in an all-around appraisal of . their qualifications for office. Helping to feed the huge assemblage throughout the evening were a group of uniformed "Goldwater Girls", moving from thble to table replenishing the ham, beans, cornbread, pie and coffee which was a free offering from the Tipton County Republican headquarters. From the financial standpoint, it was not at all a one-way affair as a number of supporters were observed writing out checks for campaign contributions before the night was over. John Feighner, candidate for Congress from the 5th District, expressed delight with the en- thusiam and size of the Tipton county turnout and said it far- surpassed a number of other rally's of both parties which he had observed in other counties.

LOUIS (UPI) — Right­ hander Bob Gibson received the nod from manager Johnny Keane as the St. Louis Cardinals' starting pitcher against the New York Yankees today for their showdown seventh and- final game in the World Series.
