H. (UPI}—The eight voters in this tiny White Mountain hamlet were the first in the nation to cast their ballots in today's election. At the stroke of midnight they gave all their votes to Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater. Then they wolfed down a midnight snack of cold cuts, doughnuts cider and coffee. And then they trudged through the crisp, clear 24- degree weather to their homes and went to bed. The voters, all registered Republicans, gave no votes to President Lyndon Johnson. That's just how they were expected to vote even though ons resident had threatened to vote Democratic. The voters gathered shortly before midnight in a rubber products factory. It' is one of five buildings nestled in this resort community surrounded by. pine trees and snow topped mountains. Bulletin At 12 o'clock noon today, with' the polling places due to remain open for seven more hours, a tctal of 1,290 persons had voted out of a registration of 3,750 in Tipton.

RECORD VOTER TURNOUT BarryPraises Courage Of Early Settlers VOTES AT AIRPORT ELKHART, Ind. (UPI)—Voting came easy for Mr. and Mrs. Russell Bontrager. They just stopped by the Elkhart airport and cast their ballots, then stepped into a waiting Cessna 310 plane for a flight to Republican state headquarters in Indianapolis.

STATE WORK UP INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — An "upsurge in the Indiana economy" was cited Monday for helping provide 85,900 non-farm job openings through the Indiana Employment Security Division "employment service .so far this year. Director Lewis Nicolini said the figure was 6,600 more than that recorded through the first nine months of 1963, especially significant since the national trend has been down. The service also placed 3,900 farm workers in full-time employment and filled thousands of seasonal farm jobs. By JOHN A. GOLDSMITH United Press International . PHOENIX (UPI) — Republican presidential nominee Barry M. Goldwater, encouraged by his final day of campaigning, planned to cast his own vote early today and then await the voters' verdict "fooling around the house." The senator made no formal plans for voting, at the 'Phoenix country day school near his hilltop home. However, he told newsmen on his arrival here from his final campaign trip that.he thought he would probably get to the polls about 9 a.m.MST. As to the rest of the day, while voters across the nation decide whether he is to assume the duties of the presidency or retired to private life, Goldwater said: "I'd like to take another long walk in the desert. There are several cactus that need trimming. . . "I think I'll spend the rest of the day just fooling around the I house. "You know, you've got a lot of leaks and short circuits," he said, echoing the comments of any householder long away from his home precincts. "Amazing" Reception Goldwater described as "the most amazing thing that's happened in the campaign" his reception in San Francisco Monday. Commenting that Republicans in the Bay area had not been too friendly to his candidacy, Goldwater said he was told that the crowd which poured into the streets to . meet him was second only to the one which met.Gen. Douglas MacArthur- on his' return from" Japan. . '' "It was a real thrill. I've never experienced anything like it," Goldwater said. It was a day of contrasts for Goldwater, the final day of 1964 campaigning. From the big San Francisco crowd — largest in his campaign which pressed in on his motorcade on downtown streets strewn with confetti, Goldwater flew to a sunset rally at an airfield on the Arizona-Utah border. He was aiming his final cam- jpaign appearance at Fredonia, iAriz., a "lucky town" where he had ended campaigns in the past. But his airport stop put him just over the Utah border in a field which services Kanab, Utah. Off The Cuff With the sun dropping behind a distant mesa and the desert air turning cold, Goldwater, who had delivered an old speech in San Francisco, talked off the cuff in Fredonia to peo- • pie, who, he said, were sure to' understand. | '(Continued on page 6) SEVEN TEENAGERS KILLED—Seven teenagers from Auburn, (Jayuga and Union Springs are dead as a result of this smashup against a tree on Route 34 just south of Auburn, N.Y.

(UPI) — A hearing on disorderly conduct charges filed against the folk- singing - comedian Smothers Brothers and their -manager was continued indefinitely Monday in Elkhart City Court. Thomas Smother, 27, and his brother, .Richard, 25, were not present in court, nor was their manager, Kenneth (Fritz, 26. They were represented by an Elkhart attorney, Richard King, who asked for a continuance. Elkhart police arrested the three following an argument supposedly over the percentage of profits from sale of a souvenir program. The arrests were made after the concessions manager, Lorell Nihart, 31, Elkhart, called police to help settle the dispute. Elkhart officials said the singers left town after treatment at a local hospital. Arm Restored In Operation OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI)—A college basketball"player whose arm was sewn back on his body after being twisted off by a clothes dryer was in "very satisfactory" condition today. Bob Swaffar, Oklahoma State University center, lost the arm in an accident Sunday night. It was rejoined to his shoulder in a tedious six-hour operation Monday. Doctors at University Hospital said the 6-foot-9' inch athlete from Tulsa, has a "fair chance" of keeping- the aim, but said if "may be week's before it can be known for certain. Swaffar's arm became entangled in a clothes dryer at a laundry under the school football stadium where several athletes have rooms. Swaffar's roommate, team member Gary Hassmann, a pre-medical student, was with him. Hassmann moved quickly in the first crucial moments. He wrapped Swaffar's arm in wet towels, put it in a bucket of ice water and rushed Swaffar and the arm to a Stillwater hospital. From there, Swaffar was taken by ambulance 66 miles to Oklahoma City's University Hospital where a team of five surgeons, all University of Oklahoma Medical School faculty members, waited to perform the operation.

(UPI) —President Johnson goes .to the polls-near his hill country Texas ranch today, confident of victory but calling for' a -"massive defeat' of Barry Goldwater to prevent the nation- from swerving "in a deeply dangerous direction." j After a nostalgic homecoming : th'at ended, a long and bitter campaign, the President spent the night at the LBJ Ranch on the banks of the Pedernales River, 15 miles west of Johnson City, where he grew up. He and Mrs. Johnson planned to cast their votes this morning in the voting booths set up at l'the headquarters of the Pedernales Electric Co-op in Johnson City. Johnson was known to be confident of victory—but felt many polls gave him a bigger edge than will materialize. According to the best sources, he expects to lose the heart of the Deep South — Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana—and feels things are shaky in 11 other states. Afire with Confidence But Johnson was afire with a campaigner's confidence as tumultuous crowds welcomed him back to Texas in Houston and Austin Monday night. After Texas Gov.. John ' Connally, an old ally, told an Austin crowd that "tomorrow is going to be Lyndon Johnson day in Texas," the President took the stand and declared: "Without objection from • the crowd, I think I'll just make it Lyndon Johnson day in the entire nation:" -.. The crowd roared. Johnson went before a nationwide television audience Monday night with an election eve appeal not 'only for victory but for an overwhelming repudiation of Goldwater. He shared the -program with, running-mate Hubert H. Humphrey. The President, by and large, kept his stump speaking at a low key in his final day on the road. But in the television remarks he taped earlier at the White House, Johnson uttered some of his sharpest language of the campaign.. Blasts Goldwater Without naming Goldwater, he accused thej GOP candidate of an "unprecedented and wholesale assault" on "almost every Heavy Balloting I Reported in Many Parts of Country By RAYMOND 3VI.
