HAROLD J. BURTON ARCHIVES ASSISTANT INDIANA STATS LIBR IttDIA!U?DLI3, INDIAN ENTERED AS SECOND CLASS MATTER.OCTOBER 4, 1895 AT POST OFFICE AT TIPTON.. INDIANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 15 TIPTON (IND.) DAILY TRIBUNE WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 21, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK By EUGENE J. CADOU United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Indiana Republican leaders are struggling almost feverishly to counteract the "trigger-happy" and "anti - social security" charges against Sen. Barry M". Gold water during the final days of the election campaign. The pollsters have reported that in Indiana, as else where, these two allegations, repeated night and day by the Democrats are cited as the g r e a t est w e a knesses of the GOP p r esidential nominee. Jep Cadou A number of realistic Republican leaders and rank-and-file workers agree with the pollsters, although they hotly dispute the truth of the charges. Included is Leslie Duvall, lon>?time head of the Indiana Goldwater organization. Duvall deplores the fact that there, apparently will be no outright conservative-versus - liberal issue in the campaign because of the two allegations. Conservative Duvall contends Goldwater will carry Indiana; despite the polls, but believes'the Goldwa-ter - victory- - would •. have been easier if the issue had been right .against left. -. The Walter Jenkins development has been seized like manna from heaven by the Hoosier GOP during the dying days of campaigning. Major candidates have referred to. it and there are indications that the fervent Goldwater workers in the precincts are magnifying the development. Their contention is that President Johnson has been lax in security measures by keeping Jenkins in his high post during which he has had access to deep secrets of national defense: They add that Jenkins could have been subject to blackmail by Communist operatives even as in the days when State Department personnel was under fire on deviation charges. Polls Bad News Nevertheless, there is no joy at various Republican^ headquarters as the pollsters report President Johnson, Sen. Vance Hartke and Roger D. Branigin. Democratic gubernatorial nominee, are leading their GOP rivals. The poll of The Indianapolis Star, the largest Republican newspaper in the state, was the worst news for the GOP chiefs. The standings were: Johnson, 51.5 per cent; Goldwater, 38.1, and undecided, 10.4, Hartke, .49.6; State Sen. D. Russell Bontrager, 40.5, and undecided 9.9. Branigin, 47.7; Lt. Gov. Richard 0. Ristine, 39.3; undecided, 13. Republican State Chairman Robert N. Stewart is attempting to persuade Goldwater to speak again in Indiana following his one-day whistle-stop invasion of the state on Oct. 1. " There is doubt, however, whether Rep. William E. Miller, GOP vice-presidential nominee, will come back. He has staged five tours of the state already. WORLD MOURNS HOOVERS Goldwater Hits Immorality In Government By JOHN GOLDSMITH United Press International PHILADELPHIA (UPI)—Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater renewed his attack on "immorality" in government today and cited former President Herbert Hoover as a great national leader who never had the slightest hint of scandal around him in his entire life." Goldwater began using the recently deceased former President as a model of political morality in a speech before several hundred people who met him at the 'airport here. Goldwater 1 planned a day of campaigning in the (Philadelphia 'area with a couple of suburban stops and a nationally televised speech this evening. "There is just too much immorality in the country today from the top to the bottom," Goldwater said. Hits Explanations He said he gets "sick at my stomach" when he hears the immorality explained away by such occurrences as • school dropouts, sickness and poverty. Goldwater said those have been with us over the years. 'The reason that we have low morality," Goldwater said, "is that it trickles down from the top. It isn't something that trickles up," the senator said. The nation, he said, must have "impeccable leadership at all levels." Goldwater flew here for his campaign swing after making changes in his schedule so he Hoover in New York City Hoover in New; York—ily. Thursday.He . postponed speeches in Cheyenne, Wyo., and Las Vegas, Nev. Tuesday and made arrangements to fly to San Francisco from New York after attending the services. Goldwater plans to appear on television tonight to give his analysis of the recent Kremlin shakeup. He believes the new Russian leadership means a tougher Communist line. Time Purchased The' Republican National Committee purchased a halt- hour of time (10-30-11 p.m. EDT) on the ABC-TV network- after the;, three networks and the Federal Communications Commission denied Goldwater free time to answer President Johnson's Sunday night speech on international affairs. The GOP candidate's planned answer to Johnson's address was taped in Washington Tuesday so there would be no conflict today with . his campaign tour of West Chester, Upper Darby and Philadelphia. Goldwater planned to return to Washington tonight.

(UPI)— Ten prisoners were locked in solitary confinement today after two pieces of a bandsaw were found hidden in a cell at the Indiana Reformatory. -Siipt. John Buck said the saw portions were found secreted around a door jamb in a cell Tuesday, a few hours after Buck received two v telephone calls from a mysterious "man "fVom some distance away" iKij-told him of a plot by pris-| oners to break out of the institution. "It sounds like a dime novel the way I got the information," Buck quoted the outside informant. >' Buck, said the plotters allegedly intended to cut cell bars, owerpower two ( officers, tie and gag them and lock them in a cell, then cut their way out of a cell house to freedom. One of the men placed in solitary was the prisoner in whose cell the saw portions were found. The others were occupants of the same cell house, Buck said. Supplemented with information from inside the institution, Buck said, security officers used the outside tip to shakedown the cells and single out 10 inmates for solitary. Buck said all the prisoners denied knowledge of a breakout plot. He said no evidence was found that any bars had been (Continued from page 6) " Correction The account of Charles Ehman's death in Tuesday's Tribune should have listed John and James Ehman, Mrs. Vernon David and Mrs. Floyd Ricketts as surviving brothers and sisters, not as surviving children, according to the Leatherman- Morris Funeral Home where the body is now on view. Terre Hauls nspecfed For Blast Ceuss TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (UPI)— State and local authorities, joined by officials of the Terre Haute Gas Corp., today probed the Tuins of a shattered building here in an effort, to pinpoint the cause of the latest of a series of explosions which have rocked the city in the past few years. The blast Tuesday injured 16- persons, wrecked one store and damaged two others. The injured included a city building inspector and two members of a gas company crew' who wt>re in the building at the time of the explosion. Seven of the injured remained hospitalized today, two of them in serious condition. Nine others were treated and released shortly after the blast ripj >ed through the Trading Post, a second-hand furniture store. Mrs. Marie Luckens, 29, who accompanied-her husband, building inspector William Luckens, 36, to the store, said he liad gone there to condemn the building. City officials, however, would not confirm, her- statement but said that Luckens was "inspecting" th'e two-story structure. Several hours after the explosion, investigators for the fire department and the state fire marshal's office said . they measured a concentration of about 5 per cent gas in the air at the scene. They said that, under favorable conditions, a concentration of between 5 and 15 per cent could produce another explosion. It-was trie seventh serious explosion here since 1961 and_the fifth of major proportions since 1963. The blasts have killed 44 persons and injured 100.. The worst of the explosions occurred in January, 1963, when a blast shattered tfie Home Packing Co., a meat packing plant,-killing 17 and injuring'20. Survivors of the newest blast were removed from beneath piles of brick and rubble moments after the explosion. Police said it was a miracle no one was killed. •Harry Custer, 18, Terre Haute, an employe of the Trading Post, said he was blown into the street from the second story of the building.-He then helped to dig his boss, Harold Johnson, 56, out of the rubble. Hospitalized at St. Anthony's and Union-h o s p i t a 1 s were Luckens, Custer, Johnson, Lloyd Nolan, 44, Sullivan, Dr. George Justus, 38, Terre Haute dentist, and gas company employes, Homer Cress, 46, Seeleyville„ and Joe .Murray, 58, Terre Haute. Cress and Justus' were the most seriously injured. Those treated and released included Mrs. Luckens; Joe Beasley, 45, R.R. 6; Robert Bridgewater, 46, R.R. 6; James Beasley, 24, and Ronald Weston, 24, all of Terre Haute, and Cleve Dougherty, 21, Fontanet. Most of the injured were in the store building when the explosion occurred but some were passersby on the street who were hit by the shock wave. Belgian Flags at Half Mast; First Rites Thursday Johnson To See Hospitalized Harry Truman By WILLIAM THEIS United Press International AKRON, Ohio (UPI)—President Johnson asserted today that Republicans as well as Democratic leaders back the administration's -determination to use continued "strength and restraint" against Russia and Red China. With little question that he was referring to GOP presidential nominee Barry M. Goldwater, Johnson said some "stand- in opposition to the collective wisdom of both parties, was experienced in a foreign affairs." Johnson said in a statement prepared for delivery at the University of Akron that the "great power" of the presidency "cannot be put in the hands of those who might use it impulsively or carelessly."' And he said this is the concern "of a watching and worried world." Akron was the President's first stop on a jet-hopping trip also' taking him to see former •President Harry S Truman, hospitalized in Kansas City, Mo., and to later campaign appearances in East St. Louis and St. Louis, Mo. Refers To Change The President, recalling last week's. Soviet leadership upheaval, Red China's atomic explosion, and the British Labor party victory said: "Last Saturday I met with the National Security Council. On [Monday I met with congressional leaders from both parties. Yesterday I met with my cabinet. And you can be proud of the kind of leadership this country has produced. "All those I met with—from both parties—were in agreement on the broad course of American foreign policy. "No one advised me to break the nuclear test ban treaty. Instead they discussed ways of making it apply to all nations. "No one advised me to break off relations with the Soviet Union. Instead we discussed ways to make our relations with the new Soviet leadership more productive> "No one advised me to withdraw from the United Nations. Instead we talked about the need to strengthen it. "No one'advised me to make threats, or issue ultimatums, or expand conflicts. Instead we discussed ways to reduce tensions and resolve disputes among nations. "All of those who met with, and gave me their counsel, agreed that we should continue , on the path of strength "and res- itraint which we have followed !for the past 20 years."
