(TRIBUNE Photo-Engraving)' rties This Campaign By STEVEN GERSTEL United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The 1S34 presidential campaign has deeply etched the word "defector" into the American political vocabulary. The switching of party allegit ance in an electioh year is nothing new in politics but sc.}-, dom have so many, prominent persons abandoned their party's presidential candidate. Once used to describe Communists who fled the red orbit or American turncoats in Korea, the word "defector" is now used to label -politicians who endorse the enemy candidate or who maintain a significant silence. Both President Johnson and Republican presidential candidate Barry M. Goldwater have sparked political migrations among well-known names within their parties. Civil Rights Issue In the case of Johnson, the issue which has caused a numbe/ of southern politicians to leave him unquestionably is civil rights although states' rights and big government played a role. Goldwater scared away a lot of otherwise loyal Republicans with his conservative stands on many issues and with his refusal to vote for the civil rights bill. The most. prominent defector of the 19G4 campaign' is Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. A Southerner with a long history of defection, Thurmond deserted the Democratic p;irly Fire Runs Due To Pranksters Halloween pcanks were the cause of two calls- by the Tipton F're Department Saturday night. A bonfire on the new blacktop p:;'emcnt near Green and North Su-cct was extinguished at 7:45 p.m. and fifteen minutes later firemen were called to put out a blaze cn a light pole near Mill street and the railroad.

VOTE Billy Graham's Daughter Leads Rally For Barry MONTREAT, N.C. (UPI) — Evangelist Billy Graham has discounted reports he would endorse GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater. He said Sunday he is so neutral that his wife doesn't even know how he will vote. Graham issued a statement disavowing any partisanship in Tuesday's presidential election after his teen-aged daughter, Anne, appeared Saturday night at a Goldwater rally in Colum bia, S.C., and urged the crowd to "send Barry and Bill to Cap itol -frill." The appearance set off a flurry of more than 200 telegrams to Graham Sunday urging him to make an endorsement. Graham issued a statement from, his mountain home. "My wife does not even know for whom I am going to vote," he said. "I am a minister of the gospel and do not intend to allow my well meaning friends to get me involved in this or any . other political campaign." Graham said he was away from home and the first he knew about his daughter's appearance was when "I heard it on the news." ! "My daughter Anne is a beautiful, intelligent high school senior who has a growing interest in civil and social affairs. We have taught our children to think independently, "In. this present election, our family is politically divided, Some are for Johnson and some are for Goldwater." Barry Captures Straw Vote In City Sampling An indiscriminate sampling of shoppers in downtown Tip- ten this morning was in sharp disagreement with nationwide pells predicting a- landslide for President Lyndon B. Johnson. The straw poll conducted from 1C-1C-:15 a.m. -among clerks and shoppers in Tipton business establishments gave S-nator Bany Goldwater 15 votes to 11 for Johnson. S-jven additional voters either indicated they had not yet made up their minds or did not care to commit themselves in front of a reporter, while two persons said they intended to vote but would leave Liank the box for president. In liking the poll, the Tribune avoided U:e couthoike, Ctty Hail and all u:her locations where positions were occupied by persons of known political faith such as headquarters of both political parties,. In view of repeated Democratic charges that if elected, Senator Goldwater would deprive them of social security benefits, and counter charges by the candidate from Arizona that he had repeatedly voted in 'avor of Social Security bills. ; t was interesting to note that out of the three senior' citizens contacted in the poll one said he was "not interested in the election" one wrote "no comment" and one voted for'Gold- water. Reactions of those approached varied. One Democrat attem^t- ?d to put in thr;e marks for lohnson qn the tally'sheet an'' another voter seated 'with a -.jrcup at' a local • coffee • house told us tp contact him later at his business establishment and he'd vote again'fori Goldwater. The Tribune poll 'was confined solely to the office,of the presidency, with no'attempt to learn how many voters of cither party would cross party lines on '.he presidential ballotT ' 21 U.S. Jets Lost In Surprise Raid By Communists Ernest C.
