PAGE SIX • Top Debate Re volves Around Two Islands THE .PHAROS-THIBUNE md LOGANSPORT PKESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA By J, W. DAVIS- _ WASHINGTON. .(AP)-The question of who'll be the .next American president revolved curiously .this week around two little'islands with not a population of 56,000 " single electoral. vote. and They took precedence over such issues as government spending) the matter of U.S. prestige in the world, and ^hether there should be a Negro in the Cabinet. The islands are the Nationalist Chinese outposts of Quemoyand Matsu. Both Republican, Richard M. Nixon and Democrat John F. Kennedy seemed to think they had a real" issue going for them there. Each accused the other of taking 'a stand that could lead to war. They said so in thousands of words, among them: ','•',••' Nixon—"To'suggest'that we will surrender these" islands or -force our Chinese Nationalist allies- to surrender them in advance is not something : that would lead to peace; it is something that would . lead in my opinion to war." Kennedy — "To- commit ourselves rigidly.to defending these ' indefensible islands only ties our hands, plays into Communist hands,' and brings the whole world closer to war. .A peace-loving people do -not want a 'trigger" happy president in' ' the ' White .House." On Government Spending: • Nixon—"I have, had .his (Kennedy's) program costed put and have stated that it would cost at least $10 billioa.a year .more than' the program that I have advocated. "I have also stated my conviction that his extravagant approach would produce less prog ress than the programs I favor " Kennedy'—"Big government is not an issue, not at a.time when the. party which'last made it an issue has expanded the federal payroll to an all-tinie high, operated .at an US-billion deficit, increased the debt limit five times, caused the , greatest peacetime deficit in our history, and spent two:thirds 'as much money as all previous administrations put together." Prestige Nixon — "Anybody who thinks America, has been standing . still the last eight years, hasn't been campaigning in America. He's been in some other country. "My opponent continues to tel! the American people — and all the listening world — of his doleful contention that the United States is disrespected and disliked throughout the community of nations." Kennedy — "If this (the re- reduced margin against admitting Red China to the United Nations) doesn't tell the story, if this doesn't demonstrate that the United States is not gaining 'in power, I'd like to know what does." Henry Cabot Lodge — "We von:" " ' • Nsgro in the Cabinet . Ljdge, the Bostonian chosen by Nixon to run for vice president, declared on a television show: "I would like, to see a Negro in the Cabinet; I am for it." Later, in New York's Harlem, he said it again: "There should be a Negro in the Cabinet." His- -remarks fell like a chill on Republicans faying to sew up Virginia and other Southern states for the Nixon-Lodge ticket At Norfolk, Va, and Wmston- Salem, N C , Lodge stopped short of what he had said in New York Down there he explained ;to newsmen that the vice president doesn't appoint Cabinet 1 members and expressed a personal belief that "all Cabinet posts should be filled without regard to race, creed or color." , We {ft THE BUNKER HILL AIR FORCE BASE PERSONNEL ALL SERVICE MEN AND THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO LOGAN SPORTS Hospitality Days Your Home Deserves The Best! . , . and the best heating equipment is Mueller Clima- trol.

(AP) - Gerald Nees, a tall young man who once excelled on the basketball court, is making quite a score these days on canvas. ' He paints-^with his teeth, The 6-foot 3-inch Nees was a standout basketball player for Cory High School seven years ago. All that ended when he dived into a pond and. broke his neck. Now paralyzed, the 22-year-old former athlete drove himself until he has learned to paint surprisingly good pictures with a brush clenced in his teeth. Some of his works have been sold. Critics say Nees' technique is similar to that of the famed- Grandma Moses—except he does be.tter with barns and houses. Nees took up art to earn his. high school diploma, "attending" classes via public address • sys- ,tem linking his home with the school.. His paintings eventually earned him a scholarship to the Minneapolis Art institute.

BRING YOUR LIST TO PORTER DRUG CO. Most College Students Help Pay The Costs ANN ARBOR, iMich. (AP)-One year of college education- for boy or girl costs an average of $1,500 out of pocket—and although more than half of. the nation's college students earn a pad: of their expenses, 21 per cent of parents find "real difficulty" in financing such educations. This is one of the significant findings of a University of Michigan survey on "How People Pay for College." Conducted by the university's survey research center for the U. S. Office of Education, the study examines the effect, of college . expenses on a family-by- family basis. The authors of the study, John B. Lansing, Thomas Lorinier and Chikashi Moriguchi, compiled their findings from 'interviews with 2,700 families across the United States. The results, they say, reveal that now, more than ever before, American parents are counting on sending their children to college and are doing some hard-headed financial planning to get them there. Only one family in 10, the survey shows, expects financial aid from inheritances,'gifts or scholarships, and four put of five expect the student to help pay his way with a summer or part-time job. It's an increasingly common pattern for some additional member of the family — usually the mother — to go to work to help support the student. The survey shows this happening in one of every five families.' "YOUR REXAILL STORE" Corner 4th ft Market You'll just love this brand new way to roatt mtat.

Dunes Report Mis-read In Her Opinion FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP)-The Army Engineers report on feasibility of a deepwater Lake Michigan harbor at Burns Bitch has been "over-interpreted," a Save- the-Dunes Council official said Saturday. Mrs. Thomas E. Dustin, region al chairman of the council, sai( the report released Thursday is neither an expression of approva nor a recommendation to proceet —merely a statement the $80 mil lion project may be technically feasible. Mrs. Dustin listed these four conditions she said would preven construction of the long-soughl )ort: 1. Lawsuits by council members and other conservationists agains Gov.. Harold W. : Handley and Army Engineers officials. 2. Action to survey other. Indiana sites on Lake Michigan for deepwater harbor expansion. Mrs. Dusin said the state'inow has three larbors .which would be expandec .0 handle ocean vessels at less cost than Burns Ditch. 3. A stipulation by Army Engineers that a complete steel mil >e built as principal user of the larbo'r. Mrs. Dustin said the largest landowner in the area,, Bethle- lem "Steel Co., has no plans for development of the property. 4. Refusal by some private land owners in the area to sell to steel companies: ' "Mardi Gras" means "fat Tuesday."
