Keith C. McCormick of Lebanon for the post., •McCormick is being sponsored by Paul r Green of Lebanon, Boone County GOP chairman, who also was manager of the senatorial campaign of Sen. D. Russell Bontrager. Boone County was one of only a few in the state that produced majorities for Sen. Barry M. Goldwater;, Lt. Gov. Richard 0. Ristine, gubernatorial nominee, and Bontrager. McCormick, who is 44 and serving his first term in the' Senate, is a handsome, tall, graying legislator who last session was voted as the. outstanding GOP freshman senator by the Indiana Broadcasters Association. Past Party Record An insurance and real estate man, McGormick is a former county clerk of Boone County. He attended Purdue University, is married and has two sons and a daughter. A 22-year-old in Indiana University, a 17-year-old son is in high school and the 12-year-old daughter is in grade school. > 1 The Democratic landslide buried all of the erstwhile Senate GOP chiefs. President Pro Tem Bontrager left the Senate to fight a losing battle against Sen. Vance Hartke. Sen. Roy Conrad, veteran Monticello lawmaker, lost all three of his counties in his reelection bid. As caucus chairman, he had been regarded as the logical choice to head the GOP in the upper house. Conrad, who had served as Indiana manager for the abortive presidential campaign of New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, was knifed by a number of the fanatical Goldwater backers and also aroused suspicions because of his enterprises in the Dominican Republic. Sen. John Shawley of Michigan City had announced his candidacy to. succeed Bontrager before he also was demolished in the Democratic tidal wave. | CRAW'FORDSVILLE, I n d . Sen.

Multilateral Nuclear Force Faces Crisis (EDITOR'S NOTE: MLF — Multilateral Nuclear Force — has become a major- issue among the Western Allies. What is MLF? Who proposed the idea? What reasons are advanced for and against the project? These and other questions are answered in the following dispatch by UPI diplom a t i c correspondent Stewart Hensley.) Hunter Fined A coon hunter who 'jumped the gun' October 29 was fined $31.25 in Justice of the Peace Court Tuesday. Conservation Officer Wayne Martin arrested Eugene E. Oody, R.R. 3, Tipton, on that date for hunting out of season and for hunting without a permit. Oody is to appear before the Justice November 24, on the latter charge.

By STEWART HENSLEY .United Press International , WASHINGTON ^UPI) — Th£ proposed- NATO .nuclear surface fleet, which has caused a crisis in relations among major Western Allies, evolved from an American suggestion during the final days of -President Dwight D. Eisenhower's administration. The full-blown U. S. plan was worked out under the late President John F. Kennedy and has been carried forward by President Johnson. It calls for a fleet of 25 vessels, armed with eight Polaris missiles each and manned by mixed crews from participating NATO nations. Now, almost exactly four years after the. initial suggestion was tossed into the pot, the project faces its most critical test. France, long a odds with the United States and other Allies on NATO military strategy and determined to maintain an independent nuclear force, has intensified its opposition to the •Multilateral Nuclear Force (MLF). De Gaulle Contends Split President Charles de Gaulle's government contends that if Steelworkers Planning New Wage Demands PITTSBURGH (UPI) — The the project goes into effect, it will split NATO into two groups^ Thost joining the plan j top ' ' p ' Q ^~ y makers'of the United _,„„ f 'steelworkers (USW) will meet with 700 local union leaders for two days next week in New York City to lay the\ groundwork for new wage contract demands. Telegrams summoning them to the meeting went out Wednesday to the local officers at plants of the 11 major steel producing companies and to the 170 members of ' the •' USW's Wage Policy Committee, the union's final authority oh wage "contract matters. ") USW President David J. McDonald emphasized in the telegrams that the meeting next Monday and Tuesday will not be for the purpose of setting a wage policy for contract negotiations with the 11 companies expected after Jan. 1. McDonald said the purpose of the meeting to get the views of the local leaders on wages working conditions,. and other contract matters. Be Of Help "I am sure that this meeting can be a tremendous help to pan international wage policy," McDonald said in the telegrams. That policy will be set in a meeting . of the Wage Policy Committee next month. The time and place of the meeting have not- been set, but McDonald said it would take place about Dec. 1 The Wage Policy Committee includes the top leadership of the USW. All 33 executive board members and the directors of the 41 USW districts in the United States and Canada are members of the committee. The New York City meeting Nov. 16-17 will be held at the Biltmore and Hilton Hotels Seek New Contract It is expected that at its December meeting the Wage Policy Committee will vote to formally notify the 11 major steel producers that the USW will seek negotiations for a new labor contract after Jan. 1. If no agreement is reached by May 1, the union .would be free to strike at that time. At the USW convention in Atlantic City in September, the union's top leadership promised in a report to union members that it would demand substantial wage increases in a new contract. The contract developments took place against a background of union polities featuring a contest for the USW presidency between McDonald and the current USW Secretary- Treasurer, I. W. Abel. Elections for USW interna­ tional'offices and district directorships will be held Feb. 9 Abel's candidacy is the first' real challenge to McDonald's rule. He has been president of the union for 12 years. CARE PACKAGE TO KHRUSHCHEV— Anton Zajdlik, 32, Cicero, Dl., displays the $20 refund check he received after sending a CARE package to Nikita Khrushchev, addressed to International Headquarters,. Moscow. It came back with this message: "-We regret to inform you that Russian authorities did not let the parcel through because of an incorrect address. We are x therefore sending you a (refund) check for . the..amount of $20." Zajdlik also'' holds his order blank. Now he' Is asking the Soviet Embassy in Washington for Khrushchev's address so he can try again. and those remaining aloof. There even have been hints from Paris that De Gaulle will pull his remaining military forces out of NATO if the MLF comes into being, Britain, always cool to the plan, now is attempting to work out a formula which would reduce the size of the fleet and incorporate it into a broader NATO nuclear ''strategy plan which might not be so offensive to Paris. . West Germany, so far the only major ally strongly favoring MLF, has agreed to compromise differences with France by not pressing for immediate creation of the project. Other NATO Allies have been unable to make up their minds. American officials' still are- hopeful that Italy and The Netherlands, as well as some other countries, will decide to join the project. Fate In Balance The fate of the NATO nuclear fleet to a large extent appears to hinge on the outcome of a series of Allied talks between now and the end of the year. President Johnson will discuss the issue with - British Prime Minister Harold Wilson during their conference here Dec. 6 and 7. Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Undersecretary of State George W .Ball will confer on the subject with German and French leaders at meetings here and in Bonn and Paris. The United States gives no public indication of abandoning it's support for the project in its- present form, although officials always say^they will listen to a better idea if any ally has one. There is an impression in diplomatic quarters, however, that if Britain comes up with a compromise proposal acceptable to West Germany, the United States will go along unless this proposal' downgrades MLF too much. The idea is to give the Europeans, i in particular West Germany, a greater sense of participation in nuclear strategy. Interested Nations Representatives, of eight nations which show some interest in the project have discussed both its military and political aspects. These eight are . the United States, Britain, Germany, Italy, The; Netherlands, Belgium, Turkey and Greece. The Russians have strenuously criticized the plan from the beginning. They contend it is simply an American device to get nuclear weapons into the hands of the West Germans. Moscow suspects West Germany of wanting to start a war to regain lost territory to the East. The fact that t h e United States, as required by Con, gress, would retain veto power over firing . the missiles has made no impression on 'Moscow. At the same time, this veto power has tended to weak' en the. U.g. assertion that he plan would give other Allies a real voice in nuclear strategy. U.S. officials maintain an optimistic attitude that the MLF, in is present form, eventually (Centlnood en Pat* <) City Approves Erection of Stop Sjgns New stop signs will appear in Tipton following action taken by the Tipton City Council Monday night. The signs will be erected on Hill Street at intersections with Ash, Poplar, Maple, Oak and Mill, Streets.

IFire Chief Landis Fields received approval for purchase of $800 worth of 'additional hose and also recommended that the Council authorize purchase of an automatic door closer for the station-house. • The Council also awarded a Rural Electric Service contract to James R. Stoker, 328 Sweet- 'and Ave., and a contract to Russell Kingerey for destruction ) tne O. K.. Smith buildings. Kingerey is to complete the job by December 9.

While - Welsh was preparing the proclamation, Foltz told newsmen that hunting would not be banned. The upland game season opened only two days ago, and thousands of hunters have been in the crackling-dry woodlands and fields since then. Smoking hunter<= have been blamed for some of the fires. 'We are not banning hunting because hunters have not been a major factor in fires and they could be a great deal of help," Foltz said. "We would create more problems than we would solve." Foltz apparently referred to the help hunters could give by reporting fires they discovered smoldering in woodlands and brush. '.» Foltz said while most of the fires were in the southern half of the state, dry conditions from days without rain prevail in the north as well. ; The conservation department previously banned fires in state parks and forests and forests had been closed to the public in orders issued late.
