Lyndon Johnson's ranch. Wilh chieftains on both sides feeling the race is wide open in Texas, the supreme bid for the independent or undecided voter is intensifying. Vice President Richard Nixon in his debate Friday night with Sen. John Kennedy renewed the Republican appeal to the voter who doesn't mind crossing party lines, especially in presidential races. With the Democrats bringing in one of their biggest guns, Texas voters and the slate's 24 electoral ballots are not only being wooed ( will confer with Republican lead- by the Republicans, but by the former Gov. Allan Shivers organization, the Carr Collins organization, and the struggling Constitution Party. A return visit by Nixon is in prospect for after Oct. 15, Republican sources said. Democratic strategists said Kennedy would be thrown into the fight for Texas again if it seems necessary. Another major Republican leader will be in Texas later this week, emphasizing how important the planners of all parties consider the presidential situation here.

Rejects Red China Commies Show Gain Despite 10th Defeat UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) -For the 10th straight year, but by the closest margin yet, the U.N. General Assembly voted Saturday to bypass the issue of Red China's claim to membership. Only 56 per cent of the members supported the U.S. demand that the issue be shelved. This compared wilh 85 per cent at the peak of support for the U.S. position in 1952. The progressive decline in the U.S. margin raised a serious question of how long American officials could fend off membership of a Peiping regime ruling 650 million Chinese. Saturday's vote was 42-34 to uphold the assembly's Steering Committee, which had voted to shelve the issue for the duration of this session. There were 22 abstentions. One member nation, the The vote had been tensely awaited as a new barometer of the relative strength of the Soviet and Western blocs. Attention was riveted on the newly independent African states, just admitted to the United Nations. Most of them—there are 16 new African members at this session- clung to independent positions and abstained from voting. Ghana and Guinea, as usual, supported the Soviet proposal. And the newest member, Nigeria, volcd in favor jof Red China. In 1959, svhen there were 82 members in the assembly, the vote was 44 to bypass, 29 against and 9 abstentions. This year, with 22 abstentions, it was evident the result could have been a Communist victory if some of these had decided to vote for Red China. seated. Wichita Falls 5159,135,000 and $159,837,000.

ASSETS OF PARIS BANKS SHOW HIKE Total assels of (he two Par is banks, Liberty National and First National, zoomed upwards over a quarter of a million d o 1- lars during the past four months. The rise was reflected in quarterly statements of condition issued by the two banks as of business October 3. Banking business locally is running generally wilh the'tide across only $17.011,846.03. Tlic October statement relayed a pleasing note for bankers since statements issued in June pointed to a decrease in both assets and deposits. Liberty National lists an asset lolal of $10,228,;if.0.23, and this is an increase of $170,331.74 over Ihe previous total. Congo ( Leopold ville) is not yet! The Communist bloc evidently had little expectation in advance that its fight to get the issue to the assembly floor for full debate would succeed, but the Russians could claim a victory in the lowered margin. The United States, however, hailed the vote as a vindication of U.S. policy. U.S. Ambassador James J. Wadsworth said the vote "shows that the United States' policy to keep Red China out of the United Nations, in light of Red China's •aggressive and warlike behavior, continues to have the support of (he majority of the world community." India, a leading nation among th so-called neutralists, led a last-ditch fight to keep the assem- CHRISTMAS PARADE SET I DECEMBER 3 | Santa Claus is coming to$ town and this year he will ar-sj rive on December 3 in the La-; ; ! mar County Christmas Pa-|t rade. || Bob Cox, chairman of La-';; mar County Chamber of Com-^i merce Christmas Parade Com-II miltee, announced plans for || the parade today. - SI The parade will get under M way at 10 a.m., leaving from £ the Market Square and follow-pi ing the - same route as las t^ year.

A two- thirds vote requirement would have defeated the United States on the issue even before the latest vote. The assembly then adjourned until Monday.

In a 1,500-word statement, . the Democratic presidential nominee set forth a five-point program which he said could begin "to reverse the disastrous errors and neglect of the past eight years " "This Republican record of neglect and indifference—of drift -and failure and retreat—has resulted in steady decline in American prestige in Africa and a steady growth of Soviet influence," he said. Kennedy issued his statement on the turbulent African situation during a campaign swing through central and western Kentucky, a state carried by President Eisen- lower four years ago. He spoke first at Lexington, on he University of Kentucky campus, and flew to Bowling Green :o address a rally at the court louse before going on west lo Paclucah.

Nixon also had a slight cold. Bidding for Midwest farm votes Nixon renewed hjs attack on Kennedy's farm program at this western Wisconsin agricultural center of 47,000.

Nixon said Kennedy talks about programs, but has "not produced yet and therefore does not de- servp to r»° president."
