This week, as the new prime minister, he began putting into effect' the policies which he believes will stop the potentially disastrous practice in which Britain spends more than she earns. Britain's trade gap this year will amount to right around $2 billion, and Wilson's first step was to discourage imports by clamping on a 15 per cent sur ; charge on items which he believes Britons can do without or manufacture for themselves.

These had consisted of credit restrictions which slowed spending but' at the same time halted industrial expansion and led to widespread unemployment. Running under a minimum of controls the country showed surface prosperity and unemployment fell to around one per cent. Problem Remains But the problem of outgo over income remained.

The Laborites announced the surcharge Monday. Like some other nations, Britain has been facing a mounting balance of payments deficit, and sought some method of curtailing her imports without disrupting the entire mechanism of her international trade. There were some exceptions to the surcharge. Estimates in London arid in the United States are that it will, apply to about 48 per cent of the exports which this nation sends to the United Kingdom.

Police found the safe stuck water slipping. But the edge they gave to Johnson is not enough for Democratic comfort or Republican despair. Some of the leading political, reporters of major Ohio newspapers believe that if Johnson carries Ohio, it will be by no more than 60,000 votes. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon carried the state over the late President John F. Kennedy hy 237,000 in 1960.

APPARENT SUICIDE PACT NEW YORK (UPI) — The bodies of two men who died in an apparent suicide pact were found Wednesday in a furnished room.

Police said the two men, Robert Kearney arid Richard Greco, were in their twenties.

Instead, he said, "I favor a sound Social Security system and I want to see it strengthened." - If you have been led to believe that Mr. Goldwater plans to destroy the system, you have been seriously misinformed and misled. , You may have witnessed the vicious TV c ommercial sponsored by the Democratic National Committee wherein you view someone tearing up a Social Security card. This is part of the exaggerated propaganda which is being spread by TV, radio and word - of -'mouth to frighten you into voting for the Democratic candidates. We don't b elieve you like being a victim of such tactics, merely because yau are a retired senior citizen and depend upon Social Security for all or part of your income. (You may have reached 62 or 65 but you are still able to think for yourself.) We, too, draw Social Security. Some of us are Republicans, others Democrats and some independent voters. We thoroughly detest these methods and we are doing something about it. Learn the true facts about Barry Goldwater—a man who always has supported sound and realistic Social Security legislation in the United States Senate.

'<• (PAID POLITICAL ADVEBTI8EMENT) - prediction. They recall Ohio shifted from Democratic to Republic • late in the 1960 campaign. . A late shift could well come again as the polls and the politicians report many voters are not talking and apparently have not made their choice. The intense campaigning apparently has not stirred the voters. Democratic-labor registration efforts fell short in Cleveland, Toledo and'o t h e r areas although the effort was reported good in Youngstown. The state's chief election officer predicted only 17,000 more - persons would vote this year than in 1960. This would bring a record turnout of 4,225,000 voters but the increase would be far short of the -state's population gain. . Bright Spots, Problems Both parties report bright spots and problems as they head into the final two weeks of the campaign. . Democrats believe Johnson has more appeal to the key block of Ohio independents and conservatives than any Democratic candidate in many years. Still they see roadblocks in their path in. a-state which has j voted Democratic only once in the last six presidential elections. That was in 1948 when President Harry S Truman,; behind in all the polls, carried'the state. -,* The .Democratic problems include .the strong Republican state .administration and organization and the small army of Republicans seeking re-election at all • levels. They could boost GOP fortunes generally, by bringing out a ,large Republican vote. Coattail riding, howver,. is not automatic since Buckeye voters must make a choice for each office and cannot vote a straight party ticket by making one mark on a.'paper ballot or by pulling one lever on the machines. Many Major Speakers The number of major speakers each party is sending into Ohio shows the effort each candidate is making to win the state's 26 electoral votes. President Johnson urged .party unity and a determined drive to get out the vote, regardless of what the polls showed, in a Cleveland speech last week. He planned to return to Cincinnati and Dayton this week. He chose Dayton instead of Columbus after local leaders had announced he would be in Columbus, apparently because Democrats believe they have a good chance of beating veteran Republican Rep. Paul Schenck at Dayton. Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, has made four trips into Ohio, sometimes speaking to' disappointing crowds. _ Republicans this week scheduled Nixon in Toledo and Sandusky and on to Cleveland for a statewide radio < - televisibn speech. - Former President Dwight ' D. Eisenhower was scheduled in Columbus and Goldwater in Mansfield, Akron, Canton and Youngstown. GOP vice presidential candidate William 'Miller has campaigned in the state twice and is. due back next week. Aim At Goldwater Democrats aim their oratorical fire directly "at Goldwater as they figure they must blast him loose from the GOP mz- jority in Ohio. They attack his stand on nuclear weapons control and Social Security. They also stress a you-never-had-it- so-good theme in domestic- pocketbook issues. Ka VOTE K3 I N HOLLYWOOD By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent •HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Producer-director William Castle is one of the great murderers of our time with some 500 homicides to his credit, all make-believe naturally. Responsible for more than 100 movies, Castle made only one that did not contain at least one murder. That was "She's a ' Soldier Too," a 1942 epic starring Beulah Bondi and Percy Kilbride With stars such as these Castle really didn't need a homicide. It was a form .of suicide. Castle is a white-haired looka- like for Uncle Sam, a,cheerful family man with pictures of his children on the walls of his Universal Studios office. He's affable, outgoing and relaxed, btlt beneath this exterior beats a felonious heart. Crimes of passion delight him. His very first movie, "The Whistler" with Richard Dix, killed off seven persons and started Castle's one-man crime wave. "I've used every imaginable weapon over the years," Castle smiled. "My victims died of poison, guns, axes, garroting, decapitation, stabbing, suffocation. Well, you name it. I've used it. "Funny thing, murder must be a wish fulfillment because audiences love it so. Sometimes I'm afraid I might be going overboard with too much blood and gore, as in 'Homicidal,' but people sat through the picture twic£ just to see the stabbing scenes." - Castle disdains mass murder such as war movies sometimes depict. It's too impersonal. "To be effective murder must have some personal identification for the audience," he claims. "In war strangers are killing strangers. In my pictures people are killing "other people, friends, enemies, relar fives." Then, seriously, Castle explained that almost all of his movies are tongue-in-cheek. "I try to keep the James Bond sense of fun going in a picture," he said. "I kid myself and spoof the audience. Personally I abhor all forms of violence and I don't like murder. "But it pays off at the boxof- fice. In 'Straight Jacket* there' were five decapitations and it made five million dollars — or about a million dollars per head."

P-23 By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—There an old Watusi proverb that translates into something like this: "A successful man is one who earns more than his wife spends." Step up and shake hands with a total failure. My case is so hopeless I am even beyond redemption by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But never let it be said that I gave up without a struggle. When I learned that the department had published a new pamphlet called "A Guide to Budgeting for the Young Couple," I ordered a copy right away. Considering the shape it is in, you might be wondering how the Agriculture Department qualifies to offer- budgetary advice. I wondered that myself. - Don't Challenge Credentials You also might be wondering what budgetary advice for young couples -has to do with agriculture. I wondered about that, too. And finally you might be wondering why anyone who has been married 15 years would order a budget guide for young couples. All- I can say in regard to any of these curiosities is that I was desperate. When you are grasping at straws, you don't challenge the haystack's credentials. Anyway, I obtained a copy of the pamphlet and looked it over as I was going under for the third time. "Newlyweds are' often more romantic than factural about what it actually costs to run a household,", the pamphlet says "Your views- on what you can afford may be a little unrealistic at first." That is true enough, as far as it goes. But it neglects to point out that the longer you stay married, the less romantic and the more unrealistic your views become. Disputes Advice "The solution, to money problems is not necessarily more money," the. pamphlet says. Hah! The Agriculture Department should meet my wife. She has never yet had a money problem that couldn't be solved by more money. Only on one point does the pamphlet set forth what I regard as practical -advice. This relates to couples:who have cut expenses all they/"can or are willing to do" .and who still have more commitments than they, "can reasonably- expect to pay for in the-future." . When that happens, the apm phlet says, "you ;may want to consider ways of increasing your income." : That is a .capital idea, and so is the . pamphlet's suggestion that "you might "be able to make some hobby or talent pay off." ' , I have already decided how to increase my income through some hobby or talent. I plan to write a pamphlet called "A Guide to Budgeting for the Agriculture Department." ra VOTE Ha The Almanac - * •• 'Jr.*. • • By Unlted'-PresS |n}ef national Today is Thursday, Oct. 29, the 303rd day of 1964 with 63 to follow.
