It is a major political gamble. The President's late campaign sprint makes his own prestige one of the issues. It puts him out front, as Vice President Spiro T. Agnew had been, as the visible symbol of the GOP. As Agnew put it, "I'm tremendously vulnerable" to the blame if Republicans fare badly. So, now, is Nixon himself. White House officials say Nixon decided early in October to plunge actively into the campaign, a role he had assigned Agnew from the beginning. "I knew he was going to come into the latter part of the campaign," Agnew said. "The President has only done a light brush across the country," the vice president said. "I've been the virtually full time operator." Nixon's campaign schedule involves a total of eight days; Agnew has been at it since Sept. 10. The vice president is covering at least 30 states, more than 30,000 miles, with more than 50 major appearances. While the political risk factor is increased by Nixon's personal campaign, one White House official said the gamble was always there. As he explained it, whether or not Nixon campaigned personally in closely contested states, the outcome of the congressional elections would be interpreted as victory or defeat for the administration. There was, therefore, nothing to lose. "I have never seen as many undecided voters in the polls . . .," Nixon said, discussing his campaign in Columbus, Ohio. "The undecided voters are going to determine it. And that is why these appearances that all of us are making in the last two weeks may have some effect." Nixon's crowds generally have been big ones; an estimated 50,000 in Columbus, Ohio; throngs along the streets and at a campus rally in Johnson City, Tenn. In Asheville, N.C., some 15,000 people stood in a drenching rain to listen to Nixon. One exception: his Saturday appearance in the industrial, blue collar Baltimore suburb of Dundalk, Md> In those conservative but Democratic precincts, the crowds were relatively sparse. Democratic campaign posters festooned the front of the union hall where Nixon spoke. One administration politician acknowledged GOP Senate victories are unlikely in some of the states Nixon is visiting, among them Illinois and Minnesota. But whatever the outcome, this man said, Nixon's campaigning now will stand him in good stead in 1972. Agnew said Nixon's campaign entry has not led to any change in his own style or tactics. "All we do is try not to interfere with each other geographically," the vice president said. While Nixon aims for the undecided voter at what Agnew calls "citizen events," the vice president strives to turn on the committed, turn out the Republican volunteers and voters, and raise money. Agnew is in charge of the direct denunciation of Democrats; Nixon says repeatedly he is not campaigning against anyone, only for Republicans. "His approach can't be as partisan as mine or as tough as mine," Agnew said. But the issues Agnew has been drumming—lawlessness and violence prime among them —are part of the Nixon campaign speech too—in less flamboyant, more presidential language. The Nixon approach blends some of the themes, indeed, echoes some of the words, of his 1968 presidential campaign with an appeal for help in Congress in meeting commitments made to the voters then. The Senate is always the prime target, but Nixon never goes so far as to suggest Republicans will capture the seven seats that would give them control. Agnew acknowledges that is now only a slight, long-shot possibility. The litany of issues is standard, seldom varying from platform to platform. First, the war in South Vietnam: "... We are going to end this war in a way that will discourage the war-makers and build the peace-makers in the world ... I need the help of men in the Senate and men in the House who will support that kind of a policy, who won't say 'stop now,' and lead to an American defeat which would bring on another war." Then inflation: "Give us a senator who will support the President in trying to cut the federal budget so you can balance the family budget." And welfare: "If a man is able to work ... and if he refuses to work, he shouldn't be paid for loafing by hard-working taxpayers." And, always, crime, lawlessness, violence. So, in a union hall on the blue collar fringe of Baltimore Saturday, Nixon told the crowd the finest of programs "isn't going to make any difference if our children and our wives are not safe on the streets of our cities «... He asks for men who will support anticrime legislation, and approve judges determined to "strengthen the peace forces as against the criminal forces in the United States. That last phrase is, word for word, from the standard Nixon speech of 1968. "It is time to draw the line, and say we are not going to stand for it..., " the President says. He suggests the line be drawn with Republican ballots. "On Nov. 3 in the quiet of the polling booth consider the candidates, consider their record the year around, and if the candidate has given encouragement to, has condoned lawlessness and violence and permissiveness, then, you know what to do."

TEL AVIV (AP) - The chief of Israel's military intelligence department claimed today that Egypt and the Soviet Union "have set up one of the most advanced missile systems in the world" along the Suez Canal. Gen. Aharon Yariv estimated that 500 to 600 missile launchers have been constructed inside the 30-mile zone just west of the canal in violation of the cease-fire ban on improvement of military positions in this zone. He said the Soviet missile system in Vietnam was much inferior to the Suez Canal defenses. In a rare on-the-record news conference with foreign newsmen, Yariv also estimated there are about 3,000 Soviet technicians, advisers and other personnel in the standstill zone. At the same time he appeared to confirm U.S. newspaper reports that Washington had just sold Israel a large quantity of armor and artillery. In reply to a question, he smilingly admitted that if the reports were accurate, "technically this is an important contribution" toward offsetting Egypt's new missile advantage. Yariv displayed maps and aerial photographs which he said showed the missile buildup. Yariv claimed that since the cease-fire took effect Aug. 7, the number of missile batteries had increased from 16 to 40 or 50. Of these about 40 are inside the standstill zone which extends 18 miles from the western side of the Suez Canal, he added. He contended that the 500-600 missiles had been placed within these 40 or so batteries in the standstill zone, with the closest being seven miles from the canal. Yariv added that these missiles had a range of 12 miles inside the Israeli-occupied side of the waterway. He said he based his information on "various intelligence sources" which he refused to detail. At the same time, the Egyptians also were moving more artillery into the standstill zone in violation of the agreement, as Soviet arms continued to pour into Egypt, he claimed. Replying to a question, he said Israel had observed the cease-fire and standstill faithfully. UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Egypt, sought today to enlist the U.N. General Assembly in its drive to force Israel out of the territory it took from Egypt, Jordan and Syria in the 1967 war. Egyptian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad was to be the opening speaker in an assembly debate on the situation in the Middle East. Egypt asked for the debate. Riad said he would demand "real implementation of the resolution" the Security Council adopted Nov. 22, 1967. It calls for Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories and Arab recognition of Israel's right to exist as a nation. Acting at Egypt's request, a group of other African delegates have drawn up a resolution demanding that Israel resume the indirect talks with Egypt and Jordan which U.N. envoy Gunnar V. Jarring arranged with himself as go-between. The resolution calls for a report to the assembly in two months, in effect giving Israel that length of Middle East . . . See Page 2 Dr. Samuelson of MIT— Economics Award to American STOCKHOLM (AP) - Paul A. Samuelson of Massachusetts Institute of Technology was awarded the 1970 Nobel Prize in economics today. The prize committee said he "has done more than any other contemporary economist to raise the level of scientific analysis in economic theory." Called by a newsman at his home in a Boston suburb, Samuelson said he had "no idea I'd be winning." He said he would go to his office as usual today— "my wife won't let me stay home, not with the phones ringing like this." The prize committee re- portendly chose Samuelson from about 50 nominees, including Prof. Milton Fried­ man, an adviser to President Nixon, and Prof. Vasily Kantorovich, the Soviet economic mathematician. The 55-year-old professor was honored for the "scientific work through which he has developed static and dynamic economic theory and actively contributed to raising the level of analysis in economic science," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in its citation. It was the fourth of the six 1970 awards from the fortune left by Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite. The awards, worth $80,000 each, have also gone this year to American agronomist Norman Ernest Borlaug for his contribution to the cause of peace; Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Russian novelist, for literature; and three scientists—American biochemist Julius Axelrod, British biophysicist Sir Bernard Katz and Swedish physiologist Ulf von Euler—for medicine- physiology. Stjill to be announced are the prizes for physics and chemistry. The economics prize was set up two years ago by the Swedish Central Bank in connection with its 300th anniversary. The Swedish Academy said Samuelson's "extensive production, covering nearly all areas of economic theory, is characterized by an outstanding ability to derive important new theorems, and to find new applications for existing ones." His best known work is "Foundations of Economic Analysis," a standard textbook on central economic theory. The prize committee said that in his books and articles, Samuelson "has rewritten considerable parts of central economic theory, and has in several areas achieved results which now rank among the classical theorems of economics ... He has developed and improved several important theorems within the theory of international trade." A native of Gary, Ind., Dr. Samuelson went to MIT in 1940 and was named institute professor in 1966. He has been a consultant to the Federal Reserve Board since 1967 and has served in many other government advisory positions. Traffic Toll for Weekend 11 in Iowa By The Associated Press At least seven persons died in separate accident Sunday leaving the weekend death toll in Iowa at 11. Another person died Saturday of injuries she received in an accident earlier in the week. Ralph Tripp, 22, of rural Ames died in a freak accident Sunday. Authorities said Tripp attempted to avoid hitting a cow which had been killed minutes before and his car went out of control. The accident occurred on a Story County road south of Ames. Also killed in separate accidents Sunday were Sue Ellen Hougland, 23, of Des Moines; Lloyd G. Brooks, Jr., 30, of Ottumwa; Steven Patterson, 18, of Hale; Margaretha Hermina Ricklefs, 76, of Monticello; Jasper Wilson, 14, of Des Moines; and Harlan James McCormick, 67, of rural Chariton. Miss Hougland was killed when the car in which she was riding went off a road in Clive. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hougland of rural Roland. Brooks was killed Sunday afternoon when his motorcycle went out of control and struck a brick wall near an Ottumwa intersection, the highway patrol said. Authorities said Patterson was thrown from his car when he apparently lost control while passing another vehicle at the crest of a hill on Iowa highway 38 near Olin. They said the car went off the road, sailed through the air and rolled over as it landed. The Ricklefs woman's car veered across the centerline and collided head-on with another vehicle on Iowa highway 151 near Monticello. Highway patrol officers said the occupants of the other car were wearing seatbelts and escaped serious injury. The Wilson youth was struck by a vehicle on a Des Moines freeway when he apparently ventured onto the roadway to retrieve a ball. McCormick was killed in a two-car collision at the crest of a hill on a Lucas County road Fatalities . . . See Page 2 Speechless? Is Norman Mailer ever at a loss for words? Hardly.

New Spurgeon Store to Open on Thursday The new Spurgeon's store at 521 North Adams Street will open Thursday, Oct. 29, Roger Haynes, manager, announced Monday. P. W. Hayes, president of the company, will be here that day for a meeting of store managers from neighboring Iowa Spurgeon stores. Also present will be Robert Spurgeon and several of the executive staff of the home office. "We are happy to be able to bring to our many customers and friends in this area a more complete shopping service," Hayes said in announcing plans to visit Carroll. "We feel that our new store will help to make Carroll a still better city in which to shop." The new store will allow the addition of a beauty salon, men's and boys' wear department plus a full service shoe department for men, women and children. All of the regular departments will be enlarged and expanded. Spurgeon's maintains buying offices in Chicago and New York to serve customers with the latest fashions in all areas. Spurgeon's opened the Carroll store in October of 1949. The store has been in continuous operation for 21 years. H. F. Spurgeon, pioneer merchant who founded the Spurgeon company, opened his first store at Afton, Iowa, in 1907. The company operates 62 stores in four Midwestern states. Nearby Spurgeon stores include Perry, Atlantic, Harlan, Boone, Webster City and Chero- Roger Haynes Doc Evans Brings Back the Happy Sound of 'Dixieland 9 The happy, hand-clapping, toe-tapping sounds of jazz filled the Carroll High School auditorium Sunday evening as Doc Evans and his Dixieland Band presented the first of the season's series of concerts sponsored by the Carroll Concert Association. Doc Evans provided a commentary on jazz music, which has been characterized as America's only completed original contribution to the world culture, between numbers by the band. The first half of the program was devoted to the musics which formed the origins for jazz. The first forerunner of jazz, to develop in the South, was the minstrel show music of the mid-1800's. As an example of this, the band played a Cakewalk, "At a Georgia Camp Meeting." Ragtime, a closer ancestor to jazz, moved up the Mississippi as far noth as St. Louis and then became a national craze. The five-piece group gave a very melodic version of "Dill Pickles Rag." The audience approved a change in the program when the group substituted "Carless Love" for another blues number. "Careless Love" gave their excellent clarinetist, Jimmy Granado, a chance for an audience pleasing solo. From blues, the band switched to funeral music, a dirge, and then a happier piece usually played by a brass band on a wagon bed driving home from the burial ground. Their example of what Doc called "a good way to go," was "Oh, Didn't He Ramble!" The people in these funeral bands were the same people who formed the early jazz bands, thus a similarity of style. Before playing "The Bourbon Street Parade," Doc Evans gave a working definition of jazz. Jazz depends on the instruments being played in a different way, as well as a different rhythm, with the accent on 2 and 4. Jazz is a performer's music because of the great use of improvisation as exhibited in solos by each member of the group, and jazz has a different and usually smaller instrumentation than other forms.
