GREATER STATE SEEN BY BUSH Need for Imagination Is Cited by Candidate for Governor IN A SPEECH INJJBERTY Missouri Has a Great Potential, Group of 275 Is Told The use of imagination in the administration of the state's enormous business and potentials can make Missouri a far greater state than it already is, Lt. Gov. Hilary A. Bush said last night at William Jewell college in Liberty. Bush, an alumnus of the college, kicked off his Clay County gubernatorial campaign before about 275 persons at the testimonial dinner sponsored by the Hilary Bush Favorite Son club. Need for Imagination “The routine administration of the state is an enormous job,” Bush said, “but I hope by adding a large measure of imagination to the job, to bring new industry, to increase old industry and to bring new profits from agriculture.’’ Bush reminisced about his earlier years in Clay County— in Excelsior Springs where he was born and in Liberty where he later lived—and said the entire state was caught up in change and progress. As examples of imaginative thinking, Bush cited a development of the Midwest Research Institute that will produce an inexpensive plastic as a side product of corn. He said that Missouri has soft wood forests in the south that have only been developed slightly, two of the greatest rivers in the world that could be put to much greater use, and rich iron ore deposits that could be developed into another Pittsburgh. Needs Pointed Out Bush also pointed to problems in the state which must be handled—the enormous increase in school enrollment, the lack of facilities for the treatment of deeply retarded children, and the developing of a road system. “Today, without knowledge, modern methods and progress, any community, state or any nation will fade away,’’ Rush said. “Sometimes it may be disturbing to have old, set ways turned upside down, but progress must come and if we meet it we will be happier.” Bush said his travels through the state have made him more aware and proud of its potentials and raw materials. He said he believed progress could be accomplished within the state’s present framework. “I hope and pray it will not be necessary to raise taxes,” Bush said, “and it probably won’t because present taxes are raising more money now than ever before because of increased profits in the state. A Candidate Reflects Bush said the opportunity to serve at the head of the state, and the responsibility that accompanies the position, makes one reflect on his own capabilities. “I do want to be governor of the state.” he said, “and I do because I think I can do what Missouri needs. “When I am elected governor I will give every ounce of THE EIGHT MEMBERS of the jury in the Jack Ruby case in Dallas, Tex., are shown here as they went to lunch yesterday.

REDS SEIZE KEY REG'ON IN LAOS Pathet Lao Troops Take Gateway to Plaine Des Jarres (c 1964, New York Times News Service) Vientiane, Laos — Key right-wing military positions commanding the southeastern gateway to the strategic Plaine des Jarres in North Central Laos have fallen to pro Communist Pathet Lao forces after a 3-day attack. Laotian military sources and foreign observers feared the Pa­ thet Lao attacks, coming after two weeks of relative calm, might be a prelude to major clashes in the region. Last April and May the plain, 110 miles north of here, became a major testing grounds for the strength of neutralist forces and the attacking Pathet Lao. Although forced to retreat, the neutralists did not abandon the pPine entirely. Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, vice­ premier and commander of the pro-Western right-wing army, said Pathet Lao attacks this week “seriously compromised a chance for a peaceful settlement of the Laotian problem” and jeopardized chances for a meeting among leaders of three feuding factions of the Laotian government. energy, use all the intelligence I possess, for the good of Missouri and for the best possible administration. “I hope that when I am elected you will support a daring approach to make the state bloom and to increase its greatness.” MODERN SHOPS IN PRISON London (AP)—Prison workshops in Britain are being reorganized on modern industrial lines to produce goods that can compete on the open market, Henry Brooke, home secretary, reports. f ADVERTISEMENT I * How To Hold FALSE TEETH More Firmly in Place Do your false teeth annoy and embarrass by slipping, dropping or wobbling when you eat, laugh or talk?
