Tuesday Evening, June 19, 1962. AT GOP CAUCUS Halleck Predicts 36,000 Majority INDIANAPOLIS (Special) - A prediction that he will carry the second district this year by a 36,000 vote majority was made by Congressman Charles Halleck at the second district caucus session attended by Cass county's delegates to the Sepublican state convention Monday night. The prediction was made as Halleck was telling the delegates about the plans for the talk by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower in his behalf on Sept. 13 at St. Joseph's college, Rensselaer. RECALLING HIS close friendship with Ike while the latter was President, Halleck said, "I don't want anyone to get the idea he is coming to my district to bail me out. That 26,000 majority I won by two years ago is going to be at least 10,000 more." Blasting the Kennedy administration, the House Minority Leader said, "The Democrats have a 3 to 2 majority in the House of Representatives; yet the President is complaining that he can't get his program through Congress." Halleck predicted that Kennedy's Medicare-bill will be defeated if it ever comes up for a vote in the House. ASSERTING THAT in his opinion, "Dick Nixon was counted out," he said. "The moral is—win so big they can't count us out." A Tippecanoe county delegate, Mrs, Jean Maloney, introduced the only note of discord into the caucus session when she repeatedly questioned the wisdom of Senator Everett Dirkson's cooperation with the administration in voting food for Communist dominated countries. Halleck defended the action by pointing out that American friendship will help the people in those countries,break away from Com- lunism. "It wasn't the Republican party that helped put the Communists m power in those countries" he reminded her. ALV1N CAST, second district chairman and candidate for superintendent of public instruction, presided at the meeting. J. Van Brown, of Rochester, candidate for judge of the Indiana Appellate court, also spoke briefly. Brown is presently a deputy attorney general.
