Six Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune State GOP Begins Platform Work By EUGENE J. CA1)OU .INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The Indiana Republican Platform Advisory Committee today . began public hearings designed to pro, duce winning issues for. the 1962 campaign. Dr. I. Lyjid Esch, president of Indiana Central College, presided as committee chairman. He 'is perhaps one of a handful of col lege professors taking an active part in GO affairs. On the other hand, the Kennedy administration has enlisted numerous professors in Washington to bolster the Dem' Waltpn OES Unit Plans June Events WALTON — Several announcements were made at the recent meeting of the Walton, Chapter, Order of Eastern Star. Officers will practice June 5 for the called meeting on June 6 for the initiation of candidates and the annual Friends Night program will be held on June 14. The "Month of May" program was conducted honoring all mothers.

The Republicans have invited representatives of all groups registered as lobbyists during the 1961 Legislature to- make brief presentations. One of the highest hurdles for the GOP platform drafters will be the obvious need for additional revenue for the state during the coming biennium arising chiefly from the huge gain in school enrollment. Either the creation of a sales tax or a slightly less painfu^ hike in the gross income levy appears to be necessary. However, there is a school of Republican thought that favors dodging this issue with a lick or a promise, coupled with a pious demand for economy in slate expenditures. "Right To Work" Many GOP chiefs likewise are mighty cagey about the "right to work" law which many believe cost Crawford Parker the governor's ehair in, I960 when he was the GOP nominee. There may be little if anything said about this issue when the drafters present 'their proposed platform to the state convention on June 19. Another vexatious problem for Ihe drafters is reappontionment, overdue since 1921, by terms of the State Constitution. Reapportionment would strengthen numerous big city Democratic strongholds and weaken the traditional GOP power in the rural areas. The Republicans are expected to reaffirm their stand for redislrict- ing of the House on a population basis but retention of allotment of the Senate according to geography. Wrathful words about Billie Sol Estes, purported Democratic "giveaways," including federal aid, and criticism ot the Kennedy foreign policies also are likely. Gates Participating Former Gov. Ralph F.
