The gold issues came a cropper on Friday following a statement by the U.S. Treasury that it would maintain the gold price at $35 an ounce. But the gold stocks kept substan tial gains on the week.

The former New York governor ;aid Kennedy, the Democratic residential nominee, has said th< Soviet economy is growing al hree times the rate of the U.S economy. "I took the official Russian igures, as if they were true, for 940' and their similar figures for 960 and compared them with iurs," said D'ewey. "Measured in terms of ;ross national product, the Unitec States led the Russians in 1940, 1230 billion to $102 billion. In I960, he figure is estimated to be $51( lillion for the United States anc inly ?227 billion for the Russians, "In other words, we have in- reased our lead over the Hus- ians from $128 billion in 194ft to 283 billion in 1980. Now this is he story according to the Soviet's wn figures. , "But can. we trust the Commu- ist figures about their growth?" Dewey tanislav said Soviet economist Gustavovich Strumilin as written that Soviet figures are xaggerated by about one-third. He said Harvard economist bram Bergson, an expert on So- iet production, has indicated that ven Strumilin's calculations are uite dubious and that Soviet pro- uction is less than half 1 Strumi- n's figures. "So there you have it," Dewey aid. "Whoever wrote that speech : Sen; Kennedy's has been read- ng Russian .propaganda. Worse lan that, he believes it. This orders on the dangerous."

(AP) —Some neutral and Western countries were reported Saturday trying to draw up a compromise resolution on disarmament and head off a Soviet walkout from the current U.N. debate on that subject. ON TWp CONTINENTS Called Constantinople . by the Romans and Istanbul by the .moderns, ancient Byzantium sits astride two continents. A bridge between the East and West, it long was the center of the Roman Empire-'of the East,, lasting from A.D. 330, when Emperor Constan- tirie made the city his capital, to 1453, when the Turks seized .control. CAR HITS FENCE '.Mickey Hallam, an employe of the Logansport state hospital, drove his 1950 model car off a county black-topped road a mile south' of Twelve Mile and into a fence on the Lyman Murden farm at 9 p.m. Saturday. Little damage resulted, according to Deputy Robert Riesling. New Jests If Russia Doesn't Come To Terms HOT SPRINGS, Va. <AP)Chairman John A. McCone of the Atomic Energy Commission laid Saturday the United States must ,-esume underground nuclear tests shortly .unless the Soviet Union stops "filibustering" in talks on banning of atomic testing. This country cannot continue negotiating, McCone said, when it does riot know whether the Soviets have actually stopped t esting weapons and may be gaining an advantage by clandestine testing. McCone talked with reporters after addressing a closed session of the Commerce Department's Business Advisory Council at its autumn meeting here. The decision whether to resume U.S. tests must be made in the next few weeks, McCone said. Slow Driver Held For Driving Offense William H. Harmon, Ft. Wayne, was going too slowly and he wound up in jail. Trooper John Gaylor said he became suspicious of the care with which the car was being driven on US 24 east last evening, and decided to check the driver. It turned out that the driver ran a high score on the drunko- meter, .318 against a legal limit of .150, so Harmon will have to face, court for driving under the influence. Police arrested Terry O'Neal, 18, of rt. 1 Argos, for driving 45 in Broadway and he put up {21.75 forfeit bond for a plea of guilty in city court. Hits Cuba Stand By Kennedy ALLEOTOWN, P«. <AP)-Vict President Richard M. Nixon, in his sharpest attack so far, said Saturday that Sen. John F. Kennedy's stand on Cub* "raises a serious question as to whether he has the balanced judgment to be president in this critical period of the «te." According to Nixon, Kennedy is 'to 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 KennedyV views could lead to a direct dash 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 s campaign. This incident alone shows an imaturity, a rashness, 2 lack of understanding and an irresponsibility," which Nixon sai^ raised questions about Kennedy's judgment. "The most dangerous implication 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 the side of Castro. This gives them the excuse they have been •waiting for." Nixon claimed that Kennedy's stand is an expressed invitation t~ Russia to enter into Cuban affairs. "If they do come in," Nixo" said, "the result can only mean a civil war in Cuba which thp Jnited States could not avoid entering." The result could easily be spread into the world war ths* every American of both parties wants to avoid." Baby, Plastic Bag On Head, In River RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — The body of a baby, wrapped in a towel and gingham dress, was Found by two fishermen Saturday floating in the Whitewater River 14 miles southwest of here.
