Whether Johnson can do what hasn't been done since the depths of the depression years shares interest with the U. S.

The General Accounting Office (GAO), which audits executive spending for Congress, said that the policies will remain valid because the fault lies with the government and not the individuals involved. The total face value of the policies involved is $189 million, the GAO said.

County Highway Supervisor Bernard Smith today asked Tipton County farmers to leave 10 to 20 rows of cornstalks standing beside each road bordering their fields. If the stalks remain standing during the winter, Smith explained? .they help to prevent snow from drifting across the roads. A barrier of 10 rows of stalks is sufficient, Smith added. However, 20 rows will provide a more effective blockade. r-a VOTE *a STUDY TEACHERSHORTAGE WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) Department announced today it will conduct a study into reasons for a reported nationwide shortage of teachers.

MARDER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The 1964 presidential campaign was billed in advance as one that would give American voters a clear-cut choice of political philosophies. But as things turned out, the campaign has been fought largely on personalities. Each party sought to depict the opposing candidate as a man who could not be trusted. Republicans -branded Lyndon B. Johnson as a Texas "wheeler-dealer" and suggested that he had callouses on his conscience. They hammered away at his role in the get-rich-quick career of former Senate 'Democratic Secretary -Robert G. (Bobby) Baker. The GOP theme of "moral laxity in high places" received an unexpected boost late in the campaign "w-h e n White House aide Walter W. Jenkins resigned following disclosure that he had twice been arrested on morals charges, Democrats labelled Barry M. Goldwater an impulsive "hip- shooter" and warned that he might involve the nation in nu- power in Russia reminded peo- ute books. clear war. They keep telling voters that America and; the world were much safer with JohnspnVfinger on the nuclear .trigger. "Tms Democratic theme got an apparent assist late in pie of the hazards of the international situation* In addition to the charge that the other fellow was untrustworthy, both Johnson and Goldwater had favorite campaign topics. Johnson bore down on peace and -prosperity, saying in effect: "You never had it so good—why change the hand on the helm?" Goldwater said that "forced integration is as wrong as forced segregation"—a line that had great appeal for white people distressed about the. militancy of the Negro's, drive for equality. '! In spite of everything, the campaign did turn up a number of substantive issues on which the two candidates, if not poles apart, were at least recognizably opposed.. Here is a capsule summary of the principal issues which emerged: Civil Rights Johnson: Pushed through Congress the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the strongest federal enactment on racial rights since Reconstruction. He has promised vigorous enforcement. Goldwater: Voted against the Civil Rights Act, as an infringement on states' rights, and has criticized it in campaign speeches. However, he is committed by the Republican -platform to faithful execution of the law so long as it is on tH« stat- Crime and Violence Goldwater: Promised more effective, action to curb street crimes and acts of violence which have brought fear to the hearts of many city - dwellers. He acknowledged that the federal government had no direct authority over local crimes, but said it could help by establishing a higher tone of public morality and also by setting an example of firm dealing, with crime in the federal city of Washington, D.C. Johnson: Voiced concern over rising crime rates. He said the federal government must not .usurp the police powers which the Constitution vests in states and local governments, but that it can and does stand ready to back up local action to cope with outbreaks of crime or rioting. He. proposed a national conference of law enforcement officials to pool ideas for effective local solutions. Extremism Johnson and his .supporters: Charged that Goldwater was receiving support from extreme right-wing groups such as the John Birch Society. They accused Goldwater of encouraging extremism by saying in his acceptance speech that extremism is not necessarily a vice if; so. it's in a good cause. Goldwater and his supporters: Accused Johnson's running-mate S «ni Hubert H. Humphrey, of being under the influence of free world allies. | Goldwater: Opposed it as a Americans for Democratic Ac- 1 Goldwater: Would reinstate step .toward "socialized medi- tion (ADA), which they called the U. S. naval blockade of, cine." a "radical" organization. Foreign Policy Goldwater: Called 'for a tougher line in dealing with the Communist bloc. Instead of settling for a cold war stalemate, he said, America should seek victory. He said this country must be prepared to risk war in order to preserve peace and freedom. Nuclear Weapons Johnson: Said the President should retain sole authority to order use of nuclear weapons, large or small. Goldwater: Said the control of certain tactical nuclear weapons should be delegated to the NATO commander in Eruope. Viet Nam. Goldwater: Called for "decisive" action to defeat the Communist Viet Cong guerrillas. As a minimum, he said, action must be taken to cut the Communist supply lines from North Viet Nam. . Johnson: Said the United States faces a long, hard fight jin Viet Nam,, with no quick or easy solutions in sight.

Role of Government Johnson: Would launch new government programs to help conquer poverty, unemployment and 'raise educational and health standards to achieve what he calls "the great society." Goldwater: Would cut back on federal programs to let individuals and localities solve more of their own problems with less of what he calls dangerous interference from Washington. Spending .Goldwater: Offered a definite promise of reduced federal expenditures. Johnson: Promised only to see that the taxpayer's money is spent prudently and without wastefulness. Medicare c Johnson: Favored a system of federal hospitalization.insur­ ance for the.aged under(Social Security. • • . JOHNSON: Called for federal aid to public schools, and said the constitutional tradition of church - state separation must be upheld. .Taxes JOHNSON: Attributed the nation's prosperity to the $11 billion tax cut sponsored by his administration. He promised further reduction in income taxes when /; warranted, and called for cutting the federal excise taxes retained from the war years. GOLDWATER: Proposed a 25 per .cent cut in income taxes over a five-year period. The cut would take effect at a'rate of S per cent a year, and would apply evenly to all income brackets.
