'Before a standing-room-only crowd of 5,000 in^ a . La Crosse auditorium', he .said ,Seri. John F. Kerihedy^s program of planned':'sqarcityj .as h£ put it, would • mean- black .mar : kets, farm slaughtering "and all the evils of OPA days." ••'•'• ;<tjjembcratic presidential candidate Kennedy made another trip into Kentucky;. At Bowling Green; he said the tobacco program, with its 90 per.cent support price and tight' production controls, is the type he would like to see/exlended to'other farm commodities. Kennedy said Republican candidate Nixon is a recent convert to the tobacco program. ' ,•'. Talks Leadership ' The Democratic nominee talked on .leadership and world questions when he stood before. a'cheering, chanting .crowd of students at the University of Kentucky at Lexington.- P.olice estimated the crowd at 10,500. In Kentucky, the mini! mum voting age is^ 18. I Here, Kennedy said the Repub- j licah -leader 'of the nation. has "not'only brought us .-to the present peril but doesn't recognize the ptril." . • Both Nixon and Kennedy hoped for the best from Friday night's second, encounter on nationwide television and radio. Both their camps reported receiving preponderantly congratulatory messages. Nixon was in good spirits, despite a slight cold he said he'got as a result of perspiring during the debate. Kennedy reportedly felt the match was about a draw. No'Decision An Associated Press spot check of 100 persons widely scattered around the country 'turned up no clear-cut decision either way. In .assailing the Kennedy farm i plan, Nixoii said—as he has before—that it would bring back rigid controls with.harsh penalties and fines,.even jail sentences, for producers who exceed their quotas. He also said again that Kennedy's proposals would raise consumer, food prices by 25 per, cent —a statement he made earlier in the week in New Jersey. '• In Spencer, Iowa, old Democratic campaigner Harry S. Truman charged the Republican party has deserted the American farmer. ."Any farmer^who votes the Republican tickef this fall ought to get what he deserves," the former president said. Make Statement While on the road, Kennedy- made public two statements—one on the farm question and the other on Africa. Kennedy said his farm program would boost farm prices, adding: "No useful purpose is served by saying that farm prices would not increase under our policies; the very purpose of supply management is to raise farm prices and incomes." On the African issue, Kennedy's statement proposed a five-point program which he said could,begin "to reverse _ the disastrous errors and neglect of the past eight years," He called for "a bold and imagr inative new program" to help the emerging'nations of the dark continent develop in freedom.

FUTILE ESCAPE TRY Junior Eugene Swango, 27- year-old Rochester laborer who is charged with kidnaping, went berserk in his Fullon county jail cell Friday in a frantic and fruitless effort to escape confinement. Swango, who has been kept in a maximum security cell at the jail since his arrest April 25, began his rampage suddenly and without wafning. He kicked out the windqw to the cell, broke loose the screen and smashed an old chair. Officers said that he then began trying to pry loose the bars on the window with a part of the portable bed which he had jerked loose. j Sheriff's officers alerted state | and city policemen.

Social Worker Advocates Three-Generation Household BY MARIE DAERR * "Homes today have family rooms and recreation rooms: But too many have no room for grandparents." ' That accusation was made recently by Arthur J. Robins of the University of Missouri School of Social Work. He was a speaker at the Fifth International Congress of Gerontology in San Francisco. Robins firmly believes that American households should be three- generation projects. He even suggested a program of cheap loans for adding a grandparents' suite to homes. "Alter,all, the government helps out builders of retirement housing projects," Robins pointed out, "so why not help out a son or daughter who would like his or her parents to live in the home? "We Americans are too inclined to segregate the older generation. We are loo eager to put its members into retirement colonies, homes for the aged, or even in foster or boarding homes." Robins reported that some states even "put a premium on living apart from the children," by the way they handle their old-age assistance programs. They decrease aid or make requirements for aid stiffer if the old person lives with a son or daughter, he said. - Robins pointed out that sometimes grandparents in the home makes it possible for daughter or daughter-in-law to get out of the house more often. And, in Robins' opinion, grandma and grandpa have much to give their grandchildren. "Parents are continually rushed." Robins .said. "Dad comes home from the office and tackles some chores around the house. "Mother is so busy,- she has no time to answer the .stream of questions that is a child's search for knowledge. "But grandparents have plenty of time. They can sit and listen to a child's questions. They are patient and tolerant. They can explain the world to their grandchildren." Q—I have had my first and middle names changed. My social security card, voting registration,' stocks and bonds are under the new names. If I present birth or baptismal certificate with my original names; will I, have trouble establishing identity wh'en I apply for social security?—L.F.R. • A—You should have no difficulty. Q—I am 54 now and have worked 17|4 years under social security. If I stop working now, jvill I be eligible for benefits on my own earnings when I become 62?—A.N.K. A—Inasmuch as you will be 62 in 1968, you will need 34 quarters of coverage if your birthday falls between January and June, 35 ,if between July ami December. If you paid into social security for 17!& years, you should'have 70 quarters accumulated. Dear reader: -Marie Daerr is unable to answer questions except through the column. She appreciates your comments and questions but the volume of her mail makes personal replies impossible. Peru Trial Is Delayed •PERU—A jury trial, 'scheduled to start here Monday,'has- been cancelled due to the cliarge being changed from reckless homicide to reckless driving: Miss Marilyn "Schroll, 19, route 4. will be tried before the court instead of a jury. Judge Henry Bailey has asked Sheriff Dave Richardson to notify the prospective jurors they will not have to appear. . . Prosecutor Walter Bixler said the change^ was made because it would 'be impossible to sustain a conviction. He cited fourlndiana Supreme court cases where that body had reversed convictions because the present law requires that criminal intent be proven. Miss Schroll" was driver of a car -which struck 7-year-old Jeffrey Chalkley Sept.
