INDfANA VOLUME 69, NUMBER 32 TIPTON {INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1964 7 CENTS PER COPY — 35 CENTS PER WEEK TO GET RESOLUTIONS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)—Indiana farm leaders Monday night stirred the coals of opposition to re-apportionment and change in tax-structure and resolutions backing that position were to be presented today. The resolutions committee, headed by Orville Ping of Bartholomew County, backed the 1963 Legislature acts on taxes and districting in their presentation to the 46th annual convention of the Indiana Farm Bureau. A resolution may also be offered from the floor in favor of purchasing a national food store chain, under a plan recently adopted by the Ohio Farm Bureau .to give better control of products and prices. Discussion has centered, on possible purchase of the Atlantic &' Pacific Tea Co., chain. On Monday, Charles B .Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, said government farm programs have backfired. He said price fixing and control of production have meant low instead of high income and price supports encourage overproduction and the resulting low prices. Low Corn Prices- He noted commodity stocks of $7.1 billion in government .hands and said corn prices would not be so low in this drought season if there was not so much grain already in storage. ij Shuman said the wheat program of Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman . kept prices low by dumping 136 million bushels on the market. He said farmers would lose "our right to representative government" if the U.S. Supreme Court decision stands on apportionment on a strict population basis. On re-apportionment, a resolution called for basing the State Senate on "population and area" and asked a referendum on the issue^ The resolution .on taxation opposed changes which would "erode the tax base" or increase the degree of property taxation. . Other major resolutions supported the effort to have a port facility on Lake Michigan including a grain elevator, asked close scrutiny of welfare spending, backed increased vocational training, opposed medi­ care proposals and opposed legalized gambling and asked for Bible reading in schools. Farm Proposals Set Among the specific proposals relating directly to agriculture were calls for an increased ad- tional quota for sugar beet production, uniform dairy farm inspection by the State Board of Health, establishment of a State Department of Agriculture, and opposition to control of farm wage rates or increased support on dairy products. In the field of education, recommendations called for use of school bus lights at all times when hauling children, compulsory kindergartens in the state school system, minimal federal aid to schools, establishment of a single board of education for Indiana and strict enforcement of teacher'contracts. In conservation matters, resolutions called for continued open season on ground hogs, a longer season on raccoons . to control population, control of the cereal leaf beetle, control of blackbirds, and starlings, a bounty of fox and opposition to Sunday hunting. Another resolution opposed the power of eminent domain for getting land to be used for national parks and other recreational projects.'

By WARREN DUFFEE United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) — Former Vice President Richard M. j Nixon said today the Republican party had gone "too far right" and now "most of all needs I some discipline" to unify and i concentrate on the 1966 congressional elections. ] "The Republicn party's national position must represent ••'both the respectable and re» !sponsible right and therespon- jsible . . ultra-liberal," he said. "And I do not mean the 'nut' left or the 'nut' right." If jockeying lor poisition for the 1968 nominations "becomes our preeminent concern now, it will only divide the party again," Nixon said in an exclusive interview with United Press International. As for himself, he said, "My immediate goal is to help win the (House for the Republicans in 1966. I'm not looking beyond that." Blasts Barry, Rocky The former vice president, who narrowly lost the 1960 election to the late President John F. Kennedy, took swipes at the position of both Sen. Barry M. Goldwater and New York Gov. 60 MPH.UKE THIS—Kathy Hardy. 3. shows you how she croiiched'on running board of tier father's pickup truck.and rode-20 miles over Los Angeles freeways at 55 to 60 miles an hour.- Her father found out she was there when.another motorist yelled, "There's a little girl hanging on the side ' of your truck'" i Nelson A. Rockefeller when he said the GOP's future position after its crushing defeat last week "must be the center." "It must not swing from. far right to far left. In this campaign, the party's position and image was too far right." Nixon talked freely in his 24th floor corner suite of the law .firm he is associated with in downtown Manhattan only a few doors off Wall Street. It seemed a long way from the humble beginnings of the Southern California grocer's boy and also far from the brind • and strain and excitement of the political warpath. . But although his business is now law—and big money.Jaw- Nixon made it clear he has no- intention of closing the door on politics. It would seem probable that if the party wants him in 1968, he'll be ready. Meantime, however, "I will discourage—I will not tolerate— any activity on behalf of myself by anyone else for 1968," he said. Step at a- Time The party "must take one election at a time" and he will do ' everything he'can to help GOP congressional and gubernatorial candidates two years from now, Nixon said. Everything should now be pointed to 1966, he said. Nixon; made no move to conciliate' his open clash with Rockefeller over the governor's bid to become the GOP's dominant figure after the Goldwater debacle. The former vice president accused Rockefeller in a news conference here last week of being the "principal divider" of the party. He criticized the governor for "dragging" his feet" and virtually sitting out the 1964 campaign once he lost the nomination to Goldwater. Rockefeller promptly replied from Spain, where he was vacationing, that Nixon was making another "peevish post-election-utterance." Nixon told UPI the party could not turn to Rockefeller for leadership because,his position "is too far left"] for the •party as a whole even though it might be correct for New York and possibly other states. Q. Who does he classify as the'. ultra-liberals toward whom the tfarty cannot swing? . A- Rockefeller, Sen. -Clifford P. Case R-N.J., Sen. Jacob K. Javits R-N.Y., Senate Republican Whip Thomas H. Kuchel Calif., and former Ambassador and Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, Nixon's - 1960 running mate. None of these endorsed Goldwater. Q. Who does he group in the center which he says the party should seek? A. Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton, who ran second to Goldwater for the nomination at San Francisco; Michigan Gov. George W. Romney, who won reelection while steering clear of Goldwater; and, probably Charles H. Percy, the young Chicago business executive who failed in his bid for the Illinois governorship. Q. What about (Nixon)? A. ."Soundly in the center." Q. What formula does the GOP need to revive itself and in again? A. "The formula should be the Eisenhower-Nixon formula, not because, it is more to the left (than Goldwater) but be: cause it is the right position. . . because (the party) was split one way this time, we don't want it to split the other way." Q. Why does he concentrate on •Rockefeller, etc., when many of the GOP's more liberal candidates fared better than many conservatives. A. "We cannot have the spectacle of running (for the nomination) and then not supporting the candidate" who wins. "The Republican party can never be effective unless when you: run for the prize, in the camyj paign that fololws you support the winner." • In other words, he said, "this; must not-be a Rockefeller parf ty or a Goldwater party." That leaves only the obvious course,' as Nixon sees it: The party must resolve now to get together "to avoid the extremes of the left and the right, take the high center road, the high center ground" which President Johnson has currently staked out for the Democrats. 4-H Winners Honored For Achievements Dies Suddenly Local friends have received word of the sudden death in Grand Coulee, Washington, of Mrs. Elizabeth Jasper, a former resident of the Kempton and Shiloh area, the daughter of Wilson and Mary Johnson.

Hilton Hobbs presented the 4-H Trip Rusk and Bundy Meet Johnson On National Security Castro Admits Cubans Have Missile. Control By DONALD H. MAY United Press. International WASHINGTON (UPI) —On Oct. 27, 1962 an American U2 reconnaissance plane was lost} on a mission, over Cuba, presumably shot down by a surface-to-air missile fired by a Soviet crew. The incident happened at the height of the 1962 missile crisis. It is the only instance in which one of Russia's antiaircraft missiles, known as SA2's or SAMS, stationed in Cuba has been fired at a U.S. plane. Today administration officials are focusing new attention on the network of SAM sites in Cuba. The new interest stems from Premier Fidel Castro's disclosure that the SAMS now have been turned over to Cuban control. The news did not come as a surprise to U.S. officials. The Russians had been training Cuban crews to operate the missiles for about a year. There had been speculation the transfer of control would take place last May, but it was apparently delayed. * Russian Force Cut The State Department said Monday that Castro's claim, of control was "consistent with our information." It also" said Russia's military force in Cuba, once 22,000 or more men, had been reduced during the past two years to "a few thousand" advisers and technicians scattered about the island. Of more interest to U.S. officials was Castro's disclosure that in assuming control of the SAMS he had made an agreement with Russia onytheir use. Castro, spoke of an 3 "arrangement" Under which he would not "unilaterally" use the SAMS against U2 planes. This could be read as a pledge not to fire them without prior consultation with the Russians. "The commitment we assumed was that all legal means to put an end to U2 flights should first be exhausted; but this is not a commitment for an indefinite . period," Castro added. Respond Strongly U.S. officials had assumed it would be in Russia's interest to obtain such an agreement because if Cuba shot down a U-2, the United States could be calculated to respond with strong awards to the boys that will at- 1 measures such as homing the tend Roundup. They are as missile site involved.

By HELEN THOMAS United Press International JOHNSON CITY, Tex. (UPI) —President Johnson concentrated today on paring down the defense budget and patching up friction among NATO allies in far-ranging cabinet-level talks. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and McGeorge Bundy, the presidential special assistant on national security affairs, were scheduled to fly to the LBJ Ranch to the meetings. . Johnson 1 is trying to keep his 1966 budget below the $100 billion dollar mark. He hopes to trim waste from the defense budget to finance programs to make his "great society*' a reality. The high-level budget review —with the economy axe sharpened r-. began Monday with the arrival of Defense Secretary Robert SI McNamara and Deputy Defense Secretary Cyrus 11. Vance. They worked long into the night on preliminary defense spending for the fiscal year starting July 1 and stayed overnight. Pour Over Figures The White House said Johnson and McNamara searched the figures with an eye for maintaining the "highest degree of national security within the lowest possible cost." White House sources said Johnson has not settled on a total budget target, but that normal projections, including pre- com'mitted increases, would put it between $103 billion and $105 billion.'; The . present over-all budget figure is $97.2 billion, of which $49.9 billion is earmarked for the Defense Department. There are 13' task forces at work drafting programs which Johnson may eventually include in his legislative recommendations. Officials pointed out these necessarily will increase the budget proposals. They also noted built-in money increases inherent in the new education and anti-poverty programs approved by Congress. To Study Budget Johnson planned to hold meetings over the next several weeks with agency heads to go over their budgets item by item, sources said. He also will review the task force recommendations. . With the arrival of Rusk and Bundy from Washington, Johnson planned to throw the spotlight on the growing split in the Atlantic alliance over the creation of a multi-national nuclear fleet.
