CADOU United Press International INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) —Sen. Barry M. Goldwater is unquestionably the low man on the totem pole during this final week of the Indiana campaign. In fact, he weakness of the Republican presidential nominee editorsandofthe vo f InE is threatening the entire s Hoosier GOP ticket. • Polls of Indiana newspaper editors and of the voters in general have apparently disclosed the failure of the Goldwater campaign in this state to prosper after this state earlier in the politicking had been deemed safe for the Arizonan. There was optimism and jubilation among the Democratic candidates and leaders on Sen. Vance Hartke's "whistle - y stop special" Monon Railroad train s it winded its way slowly from New Albany to Hammond today. Even Roger D. Branigin, Democratic gubernatorial nominee, who has been classified as the low man on the party's totem pole, seemed cheerful. • Run Against .Goldwater Hartke, Branigin and most of the other Democratic nominees have been running against Goldwater while a number of the GOP candidates have paid only brief tribute to their White House aspirant during their politicking. The constant refrain of the Hoosier Democrats has been that Goldwater is trigger happy and hates Social Security while President Johnson is maintaining peace and prosperity and trying to help the oldsters and the common people. Apparently almost lost in the shuffle are the liberal versus conservative and the welfare state versus free enterprise is- uses. Nevertheless, some GOP chiefs believe they will cash in on the Billy Sol Estes, Bobby Baker and Walter Jenkins scandals and the morality issue in general during these final days. The hard-core Goldwater voters are sure to go to the polls. One Republican leader opined that there should be prayers for rain on election day to lessen the anti-Goldwater total. Special Train Schedule The Democratic train was scheduled to start at New Albany at the ghoulish hour of 7 a.m., with oratorical stops at Salem, Orleans, Mitchell, Bedford, Bloomington, Cloverdale, Greencastle, Roachdale Crawfordsville Linden, Lafayette, Chalmers, Monon, Rensselaer, (Continued on page 6) r -i VOTE Pa Johnson Visits S. California ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (UPI) — President Johnson summed up the election campaign today as a choice between "recklessness or responsibility." He said America cannot play a "war- game of bluff and bluster." The Chief Executive made those statements in a text for a rally in Albuquerque before heading to Southern California to pry at the strength in that area for Republican presidential candidate Barry M. Goldwater. There were plans for a long motorcade in the Los Angeles area, and another prepared speech in which Johnson declared: "We are going forward to a future of horizons unlimited." In his speech for a rally at Johnson gymnasium at the University of New Mexico, Johnson said: "The stakes in this election are success—and survival. "The issues are recklessness or t responsibility.. . ' "We cannot and will not play the war-game of bluff and bluster. "The risk is too great. : ', "We will keep' the,,p<eace. , "That, most of all, is what this election Is all 'about!.

Johnson and Sen. Barry . M. Goldwater still talking to voters with the vervor of evangelists. The personalities of the candidates overshadowed the issues. In a confrontation between the liberal wing of the Democratic party and the con- jservative wing of the Republican party, the campaign has shaken out. these basic questions: —Does President Johnson lack the integrity—as implied by GOP campaigners—to serve as.the nation's chief executive? —Is Goldwater too trigger- happy—as suggested by , the Democrats — to be trusted with management of U.S. foreign and defense policy? Each of the presidential candidates has traveled thousands of miles, shaken thousands of hands and talked to thousands of people. II they missed any pockets of voters, the vice presidential nominees, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey and GOP Rep. jWilliam E. Miller were available to search them out. Dismayed By Campaigns All of the candidates were harassed and sometimes insulted by hecklers. Neutral critics sometimes were dismayed by 'the campaigns. The non - partisan committee for fair' campaign practices made this comment,, in its publication last week: '"One hears this campaign' is dirty. It is. One hears it is dull. It isi When exchange of epithets viewpoints , and muffles the clash of honest interpretation of real facts. "We recall with some nostalgia earlier elections when we observed that most smears were local in origin. Today the worst of them are national in scope and effect... "Rarely have the reputations of two opponents for the presidency been pried by so many citizens into the stereotyes of maniac and thief." As the lesser^, known challenger, Goldwater has traveled more and spoken more than the 'President. But Johnson ranged, across the country more than most, incumbent presidents. Having succeeded to the White House because of the assassination of President John 5T. Kennedy, he wanted to win the presidency in his own right and to' win big. From the start, public opinion polls indicated that Goldwater was far behind Johnson and that, in a sense, he himself was the biggest issue of the campaign. The polls suggested that many voters were prepared to support Johnson not because they were enthusiastic about him but because they were opposed to Goldwater. For this reason, Goldwater was presumed to be trailing GOP candidates for governor, senator and other offices, in many states outside the .South. Some like ' Sen. Kenneth (P. Keating, B.-N.Y., refused to endorse Goldwater; others called for straight ticket voting but conducted independent campaigns. Goldwater won the Republican nomination after a bruising pre-convention battle. Many of the Democratic attacks on him were mere echoes of charges from his GOP critics that he was too reckless to be trusted with nuclear weapons and that he would try to turn the clock back in a changing world. Winning back Republican defectors was given high priority in the Goldwater campaign soon after the GOP convention. Goldwater believes he finally made important progress in this area, particularly after the Walter Jenkins case was splashed across the headlines. The Democrats also had to worry about defectors, particularly in the South, where Goldwater became a hero "to many white Democrats- by voting against the civil rights bill. This "white backlash'.! problem bothered the Democrats in the North, too, particularly among working class families worried about Negro neighbors or Negro competition for jobs. Outside the South, the white backlash seemed to subside during the campaign but it remained to the end a factor of unknown potency. The white backlash and suspected voter distrust of Johnson added up to what the GOP has called "the silent vote" of citizens unwilling to talk politics or to reveal their presidential choices. Goldwater was relying on it to confound the poll-takers. Richard Nixon On TV Today WASHINGTON (UPI) — Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon speaks on foreign policy over the NBC Television network today: in behalf of Republican presidential nominee Barry M. Goldwater. GOP headquarters also said the "Brunch with Barry" program of last week will be repeated Friday on the CBS network. In that program, Goldwater talked with six .women about campaign matters. gpy on the CBS network'. In Harrisburg," Pa., 'Nixon hammered away at President Johnson's foreign policy and running mate Tuesday night, in efforts to spark a last-minute push by Pennsylvania Republicans for Goldwater. Addressing a $10O-a-plate GOP fund-raising dinner, Nixon con- Addressing a $100-aplate GOP fund-raising dinner, Nixon contended the Johnson campaign has "peaked out," that Goldwater is gaining strengts and that an "immense offensive" can elect the Arizona senator.- Nixon drew an enthusiastic response from the estimated 5,000 Republicans in attendance when he charged the Johnson line has led to a four-y.ear series of foreign policy defeats with no change in sight. At a news conference before the talk, he termed Johnson "shockingly irresponsible" for not tailoring the policy to take the-initiative following the leadership turnover in Russia. Nixon told the newsmen: ."Khrushchev "was old and made mistakes and that's why he was kicked out. One thing is sure.' The new Russian . leader will be younger than Khrushchev, more hungry and more dangerous. This is the time for America, instead of laying back, to firm up our own foreign policy and take the initiative." Agents Hold Stowaway On Johnson Plane PITTSBURGH (UPI)—It was, said Rudolph - Gordon,. a lucky day for both himself and President Johnson. "I'm on his wave length," said Gordon. "I'm going to tell Johnson how to win by extrasensory perception." Gordon, 30, of Boston's Back Bay area, sat among three Secret Service agents as he explained how he stowed away Tuesday aboard the press plane accompanying Johnson here for a campaign apearance. Wearing gold-rimmed glasses and an Ivy League suit, Gordon, who recently has been un-' der a sychiatrist's care, said he boarded the reporters' bus in downtown Boston, rode with them to the airport and bounded onto the plane. . . He was found out by Ray Zook, a member of the White House • transportation office, shortly after takeoff. • Gordon gave his name' alternately as "Chief Osceola of the Seminoles" and Gordon Dubois, advertising salesman for Boston radio station WBCN-F.M. His true identity was not discovered until the plane landed here. To the three Secret Service agents on the plane, Gordon said: "It's (the flight) a gimmick and I pulled it and I'm really at your mercy. I got on the press plane'because I'm in radio and that's sort of the same as the press." ' (In Boston, Mrs. Mitchell Hastings, wife of the radio station president, said a man known as Gordon Dubois^ had been-hired about-a month, ago to' sell advertising. ("He had a lot of .big ideas and said, he had lots of things cooking for him, so.". .we told him to go ahead," Mrs. Hastings said. But she said .he failed • to make any sales and dropped out of sight last week. "We thought,we'd seen the last of him," she.said.) Gordon was held in custody by the Secret Service until Johnson completed his speech here and left .the city. Before leaving, Gordon rtold newsmen: "Through a complicated num-" ber system I had figured out that this was both mine and President Johnson's lucky day and I wanted to sell him some advertising on my station."

Launches Flying Lab CAPE KENNEDY (UPI)—The Air Force put a space glider test model through its toughest trial Tuesday night in a high­ speed swoop to earth to help develop manned: spaceships lble to land at airports. ' •The flying laboratory was rocketed 31 miles into the sky and then nosed over for a 9,000- mile an hour glide over tht Atlantic. By using the lift supplied by; its five-foot wide delta wing plowing into the atmos-- phere, the craft coasted to an ocean impact area 950 miles away. No recovery was attempted. But during the glider's 15-minute hop,to the edge of space and back it radioed back volumes of flight data expected to be valuable in the design of maneuverable aerospace planes. The Russians disclosed in August that their engineers are also working on a "Sputnik-airplane" that would be able to take off from the ground, fly into space and return to an air field. U.S. scientists expect . such gliding spaceships to do away with costly ocean recovery fleets now ne'eded for American manned spaceships and to provide an economical way to ferry men and supplies to orbiting space stations of the future. • Tuesday night's glider was the fourth in a series of six Project ASSET research vehicles intended to explore the used in harvesting operations j glide method of re-entry into at the fawn. . /earth's atmosphere.

(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving) EL CENTRO, Calif. (UPI)—A Navy Day' celebration turned into a fiery hell Tuesday when a low-flying jet bomber crashed in flames into several buildings at this naval air facility. Nine persons were killed and at least 22 others injured. Six of the injuries were critical and nine were reported serious. The remainder were given first aid at the scene,' but were not hospitalized. At least five of the most seriously hurt were flown to thet San Diego Navy Hospital. The dead included the three- man crew aboard the twin-en­ gined Douglas A3D Skywarrior bomber. They included Cmdr. Arthur Perkett, who piloted the plane on the first successful parachute jump here 17 years ago. Other crew members of the bomber killed were pilot Lt. Cmdr. Paul Duris of Escomlido. Calif., and Aviation Machinist Mate Glen Pender. Flying Low • The plane was flying low over the facility after it had dropped the 25,000th parachute jumper to land here. The parachutist was Bedford Sutherland. A Navy spokesman said the 70,000 pound plane "hit a telephone pole" and then struck three base buildings- housing the post exchange, theater, barbershop arid swimming pool. Smoke billowed 1,000 feet high into the clear desert air. Observers said the smoke was visible for more than 50 miles. . Navy .spokesmen. said engineers' today "'planned "to" -survey the damaged buildings to determine the. loss. The structures were World War II vintage. Also expected to begin today was an investigation into the cause of the accident. Juanito Lazo, a photographer for the El Centro 'Post Press, was photographing the parachute drop and described what followed: Saw Plane Coming "I saw this plane coming in about 25 feet from the ground, pretty close to the audience. I tried to fire it (take a picure win his camera) but it didn't shoot." When the plane struck the pole, Lazo said, there was "a great ball of fire. It looked like. an explosion. Part of it (the plane) hit the church roof and put a 10-foot diameter hole through it. The plane exploded about a block away from the church. Before it hit it threw some kind of ball of fire. Then the plane struck the commissary building. It was just like an inferno." The photographer said wreckage from the plane was scattered over an area abot two city blocks long. Most of the dead and injured were believed to have been inside the complex of buildings. M VOTE M Council Holds Routine Session In a routine session Monday night.
