Tuesday Evening, June 19, 1962. Redistrict Plan in GOP Platform INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — The platform presented to the Indiana Republican state convention today favors reapportionment on the so- called federal plan which gives the rural areas considerable strength. It also slapped at the Urban Affairs cabinet plan of the Kennedy administration. The federal plan calls for the House of Representatives to be based on population and the Sen* ate on geographic areas. The platform spelled out that "reapportionment, once established, should be made every 10 years" and that it should be achieved by constitutional amendment—a process that will take at least five years. Of the subject of urban affairs, the platform said that "urban development must spring from tile cities themselves. The Eepublican Party believes that local schools, slum clearance, parks and playgrounds can best be managed by local authorities. We feel that an effort should be made to curtail the growth of assumed and legislated power of appointed boards and commissions in local, state and federal units of government." The document produced by the 50-member Republican Advisory Committee was generally conservative. It did not specifically mention the big issue of two years ago —right to work. However, the 1st District caucus proposed a resolution backing repeal of right-to- work but this was defeated. Many of the views of U.S. Sen. Homer Capehart, who will head the GOP ticket in Indiana in the November election, were incorporated into the platform, including his position that the federal government should get out of "the farmer's business" but first should initiate a major research program to use agricultural surpluses. Also included was Capehart's position that the U.S. should "rid the Western world of Communism, whether in nearby Cuba or elsewhere in this hemisphrere," The platform was in contrast to the positions taken by State Rep. Birch Bayh, the likely Democratic opponent of Capehart, who has followed President Kennedy's po sition closely. Other platform planks: FOREIGN POLICY—"We advo cate that loans made to our allies be made only on the basis tha Senator Capehart has been advocating for so many years—thai promote the private enterprise system, and that when funds from loans are expended outside of the recipient countries they should be used to purchase American products and services. "Foreign aid should be withhelc whenever a country expropriates U.S. property ... We oppose membership of Communist China in the United Nations. We urge that prompt, decisive and effec tive action be taken to rid the Western World of Communism whether in nearby Cuba or elsewhere in this hemisphere." EDUCATION-"We believe that the stale government, through the tuition-support plan, should assume such a proportion of the cosl of public school education as will enable all our school districts to provide first-quality schools without having to resort to excessive local property taxes ... We reaffirm our opposition to federal control of our schools." HUMAN RIGHTS—"We repudiate and expense those who for selfish vote-getting purposes talk about civil rights in the North and vigorously oppose such rights in the-South." VOTE FRAUDS-"Strict en forcement- of election laws and such revisions as are deemed necessary by the Legislature to insure the proper registration and voting of all eligible citizens." CONSERVATION - "We advocate the restoration of State Con servation Department fish and game propagation." Such propagation was virtually abolished by the Democratic administration. CRIME—End the "abuse of the parole - and - pardon system . . . stricter laws for narcotics and sex offenders and reform of the bail bond system." HOME RULE—Favors federal fund distribution "only in such matters of interstate and national concern as flood control, navigation, highway construction, market developments and disease eradication, when such problems cannot be solved by regional interstate cooperation." HIGHWAYS-Urged thai "traffic speed laws be made realistic for modern travel and then be strictly enforced." TAX REFORMS—Advocate repeal of the Indiana Poll Tax, and "the confused and expensive assessment of household goods." 40 PERSONS DROWN WARSAW (UPI)—Forty persons, mostly children, drowned in Polish rivers and lakes over the weekend, it was announced here Monday.
