The Reichard's had two suits against Mrs. Sage as "the outgrowth" of'an auto accident Oct. IB, 1957. The case was. venued from.Fulton county to Plymouth and Judge Roy Sheneman presided. The jury deliberated for two and one-half hours. It granted 57,000 to Reichard for the loss of She services of his wife and for medical, hospital, and ambu- ance expenses "incurred.

In 1960, the figure is estimated to be 551C billion for the-,United States and only 5227 billion for the Russians. "In other words, we have increased our lead over the Russians from 5128 billion in 1940 to $283 billion in I960. Now this is the story according to the Soviet's own figures. . "But can we trust the Communist figures about their growth?" Dewey said Soviet economist Stanislav Gustavovich Strumilin has written that Soviet figures are exaggerated by about one-.third. He said Harvard economist Abram.'Bergson, an expert on Soviet-production, has indicated that even Strumilin's calculations are quite dubious and that Soviet production is less than half Strumi- lin's figures.

John F. Kennedy's stand on Cuba "raises a serious question as ; to. whether he has the balanced judgment to be president in this critical penod of the 60s." According'to Nixon, Kennedy is : so rash and impulsive that Americans can not sleep well at night." Nixon put out a two-page statement attacking Kennedy on what was said' in their television debate Friday night. Nixon contended that Kennedy"? views could lead to a direct clash with : the.Soviet Union if the Democratic nominee's views were followed. '. , "Senator Kennedy's . call for U.S.-government support of a revolution in.Cuba," Nixon said, "is the-most shockingly reckless proposal ever made in our history by a presidential candidate during z campaign. This incident alone shows an imaturjty, a rashness, a lack of understanding and an'ir- responsibility," which Nixon sap raised questions about Kennedy's judgment. "The most dangerous implica T tion which can -flow from Sen. Kennedy's recommendation," Nixon said, "if he does not immediately .withdraw it, is that this is a direct invitation for the Soviet Union to intervene militarily on he. side .of Castro. This .gives them the excuse they have been waiting for." , Nixon claimed that Kennedy's stand is an'expressed invitation t'- lussia to enter into Cuban affairs. 'If they do come in," Nixon said, "the result can only mean civil war in Cuba which the Jnited States could not avoid en- ering." The result could easily -be spread into the world war that every American of both- parties wants to avoid." Baby, Plastic Bag On Head, In River RICHMOND, Ind.
