Nixon, Though No Candidate, Is on the Move Once Again By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)-Richard M. Nixon is moving again. He says he is not running. But he's moving. For a time, after Edmund G. Brown beat the former vice president for the governorship of California last November, it seemed Nixon might devote himself to law and disappear from public life. But by spring he was making public appearances and statements again. He has insisted he is not running for anything and "under no circumstances" would ho consider a draft for the Republican presidential nomination in 1964. He defined his role as a "leader of opinion" in the party. Perhaps for a politician the next best thing to being a candidate himself is having something to say about a lot of things, including somebody else who might be a candidate. Nixon, now 50, has been a politician since he was 33. "As the last presidential candidate," he said in July, "my role now is to try to guide the thoughts of the Republican party. I will make some speeches and do some writing and I will attend the Republican presidential convention. "I expect to have something to say on the candidate and the Republican platform. But I do not France Enjoys Financial Gain, But Has Its Setbacks W. A.

Burial in Memorial Park Cemetery. Foley IN,***!*. 34249UJ By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst When Gen. Charles de Gaulle devalued the French franc shortly after coming to power five years ago, the action had two main results: It enabled French exports to become competitive on foreign markets. And it brought out of hiding millions of dollars which thrifty Frenchmen had been hiding under the mattress. It was the beginning of a new era for France which had known years of trade deficits and a rate of inflation higher than that of any Western power. , Within a year, France, the for mer sick man of Europe, was on its way to becoming the most healthy, with money in the bank. By May of this year France's currency and gold reserves amounted to more than $4 billion. Signs Of Trouble But in the midst of plenty there also were mounting signs of trouble. In the last year the cost of living had jumped roughly 8 per cent. French manufactured goods once more were pricing themselves out of the market. Even in the nationalized industries the government had not been able to carry out its own announced intention of limiting wage boosts to the 4.5 per cent which would correspond more closely to the national rate of economic growth. A nationwide coal miners' strike in March led to wage increases which in a year would total more than 12 per cent. Increases of more than seven per cent went to workers in the state-owned railroad and gas and electricity industries. Farmers Battle Police Farmers producing more than the market could absorb fought with police and renewed demands for subsidies. Government warnings that the country faced a "last chance" to pursue economic expansion with financial stability largely went unheeded. In mid - month the government acted on its own. There were some bitter pills and it seemed likely more would follow. On Sept. 12, the government administered the first of these. Down payments on automobiles and television sets now would be 35 per cent instead of 20. Prices of manufactured goods would be held to the level of Aug. 31. Credit would be restricted. This week the French National Assembly takes up the new budget. It is for $18.5 billion, up three billion from the year before. It is supposed to serve the dual purpose of aiding an expanding economy while also serving as a brake on inflation by sopping up excess money. But to finance the heavy burden of its independent nuclear policy, the French government needs money in ever increasing sums. A clue to government thinking may come from Premier Georges Pompidou, by trade a banker. The difference between a Frenchman and an American, he said, is that the American pretends to be rich and the Frenchman pretends to be poor. In plainer words he could have said that only about half the Frenchmen who should pay taxes, actually do pay them. Tax evasion is a game enjoyed by all Frenchmen. But recent government action suggests the rules are about to be changed. 2 Defendants Sentenced by County Judge A Galesburg man, Bess Crowell, apparently 47, drew three 6- month sentences to the Illinois State Farm, Vandalia, this morning in Knox County Court, but will serve no more than six months as Judge Daniel J. Roberts said the sentences are to be served concurrently. Following his plea of guilty to charges of driving while intoxicated and operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver's license, Crowell was sentenced to six months on each count. Judge Roberts then told Crowell that probation granted him July 25, 1962, for two years on a charge of violation of the Narcotics and Drug Act, was revoked and sentenced him to six months on the original charge. Asked his age during his court appearance, Crowell was not certain but said he was in his 30s. Records in connection with his July 1962 case listed him as 37 at that time, while his jail entry sheet had a birthdate which would make him 52. Two Charges Cited Also sentenced to six months at the state farm was Donn R. Wallace, 26, of Lyons, who previously pleaded guilty to two charges, deception, involving a check, and possession of a blackjack. At the time of his plea, he requested probation and this request was referred to Sheriff Max E. Jones for investigation and report. This morning, the sheriff recommended that probation be denied. Jones presented the FBI report on the defendant's previous record and previous offenses shown on the report were under a name other than Wallace. As sentence was pronounced, Wallace asked if he would be given credit for the time he has been in the county jail, where the records show he was taken Aug. 29. The judge told him he was getting off "pretty easy" and the sentence would start today. Release Two Guards ST. LOUIS (UPI) — Larry Siegfried, a guard from Ohio State, was released Monday and Tony Yates, a guard from Cincinnati, was placed on waivers as the St. Louis Hawks trimmed their National Basketball Associ- intend myself to be a candidate for any office in 1964." He has made a number of talks critical of the administration of President Kennedy who beat him for the While House by inches in 1960. Nixon said Monday he now intends to speak out on a wide array of domestic and foreign policy issues because he thought the Republican position "was not getting through completely." This news that the Republican position is not getting through completely may be a surprise to two other Republicans, New York's Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and Arizona's Sen. Barry Goldwater. Anxious for the Republican presidential nomination, if they think they have a chance, they have been going up and down the countryside making speeches, each expounding his own particular brand of Republicanism. If in the end they ruin each other's chances for the nomination, it might happen that Nixon would change bis mind about not being a candidate or not being drafted, if he gets support It wouldn't be the first time he changed his mind. After Brown beat him in 1962 for the governorship, just two years after Kennedy beat him for the presidency, Nixon in bitter criticism of the treatment the press gave him told a news conference it was his last news conference. He has held a number of conferences with reporters since. Last April, Nixon talked informally with newsmen and one of them, Cecil Holland of the Washington Star, said Nixon made it clear as "unequivocally as anyone could" he would not be a candidate in 1964 cither for the presidency or for the U.S. Senate or the House, in both of which he served. Holland also said Nixon threw cold water on reports he would move his residence from California to New York although he said, he would visit New York often. Exactly one month later Nixon announced he was changing his residence from California to New York and would join a law firm there. Four days later he bought a $135,000 cooperative apartment in the same building on Fifth Avenue where Gov. Rockefeller had an apartment. Republican National Chairman William E. Miller has forecast a key role for Nixon at next July's convention in San Francisco. This means he will probably have a spot on the program from which to express his views to the delegates when they pick a nominee. He seems unlikely himself to have a vote unless Rockefeller makes a place for him on the New York delegation. But, without being a delegate, he could operate backstage on the choice of a candidate. He says that at this time he has no choice among the Republicans who are talked of as candidates. He says he will support whoever is chosen. But if the convention got deadlocked, and Nixon heard a call for Nixon, would he close his ears? (25) How to Beat an Old Bigaboo By The Reading Laboratory, Inc. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association WE'VE saved mathematics until now, because for many students it's the toughest subject in school. The feeling seems to be that anybody can learn to pass English or history, but that you have to be especially suited for mathematics, that you have to have a special kind of mind. This is not true, You don't have to be special to get through the average math course. If you're having trouble, chances are you're studying the wrong way. Which brings up the question: what is mathematics? What does it try to do? Mathematics is a logical, con- tentless, but often very meaningful system of thought. Let's take a simple example: 2+2=4. That is always correct, but do you know why? 2+2 equals 4 because mathematicians say so! In otiicr words, mathematicians have defined "2+2" as "4." Thai's why they can't be wrong; there's nothing to be wrong about. So actually, the statement, **2+2=4" says about as much as the statement, "a big book is a big book." We can say, then, that mathematics is contentless. But once we have these always-correct, contentless, laws, we can apply them to our daily lives and often we find them very useful and meaningful. Nobody will argue that addition isn't useful and meaningful. It's easy to see that mathematics is logical. If we say that 1+1=2 and 2+2=4, we have no choice but to say that 1+1+1+1=4. There's no other way t o do it. Any other way would be illogical. And mathematics insists on logic. Essentially, then, mathematics is simply a set of symbols that somebody (centuries of mathematicians actually) invented. They also invented certain rules for manipulating these symbols. As long as you follow these rules, you can't do anything wrong. If you follow the rules (and there are not many of them), the world's greatest mathematician can't tell you that you're wrong. By itself, mathematics has nothing to do with reality. Its usefulness comes from the fact that we can think about the real world in a mathematical way and thereby understand it better. Obviously, you wouldn't try to overview a math book; It doesn't work. To learn the rules of mathematics, you have to go step by step. You have to "read between the commas." You'll find that every rule in math is based on the one that directly preceded it. If you don't understand something, you can't hope that it'll come clear later on. You must understand each step before you can understand the next step. Take each page as it comes. Work through the pages point by point. Work through any examples. You'll get into the swing of it easily. The most complex mathematical laws are only repeated applications of the simplest laws. Think of mathematics this way: it's the only course where you can really be sure of getting 100 on a test. If you follow the mathematical rules, you can't get anything but 100. The trick is to go slow, to understand each point before you go on to the next and to see how each rule follows from the one that precedes it. (Next: How tc prepare for tests.)

Divorce Decrees Are Signed by Circuit Judge Judge Keith Scott, presiding Monday in Knox County Circuit Court, signed decrees in four divorce actions. Cruelty was the allegation on which Nellie M. Mettler obtained a divorce from Harold L. Mettler. The couple was married July 31, 1954, were divorced and married again May 9, 1958. Custody of the couple's three children was awarded to the plaintiff, with the defendant to pay $30 weekly support money. A property settlement was confirmed and the plaintiff waived alimony and support. Desertion was charged in the complaint on which Alma J. Collins was granted a divorce from Dewey R. Collins, to whom she was married March 11, 1957. Custody of the couple's two children was awarded to the plaintiff and the question of support was held in abeyance. Alimony and support were waived by the plaintiff. A property settlement was confirmed, alimony and support were barred in the decree divorcing Clarel G. Foster from Kathryn Idabelle Foster, to whom he was married March 10, 1945. Adultery was the charge in this complaint. Also signed Monday was a decree in a case in which evidence was presented Sept. 19. On a charge of desertion, Janice Bogeart was granted a divorce from Thomas Bogeart, to whom Illinois Corn Drying Advanced By Warm Spell SPRINGFIELD, III. (AP)— Recent warm temperatures have hastened drying of Illinois corn and 80 per cent of the crop is mature and safe from frost, the State-F e d e r a 1 Crop Reporting Service said today. Corn picking has begun in some early planted fields. Virtually all soybean fields have turned yellow and 75 per cent of the crop is shedding leaves. About 20 per cent of the crop has been combined. This is about the same as the 1957-61 average but about a week later than in 1962. Pastures generally continue below normal. Reports as of Friday showed 61 per cent of the fields were short of soil moisture. The final cutting of alfalfa is nearly completed. Little winter wheat has been seeded thus far because of dry soil conditions.

Custody of the couple's one child was awarded to the plaintiff. The 1964 Comet gets a new look and a new series will be introduc ed when the cars go on display Oct. 4. The new style hints of the Lin coin Continental and has all new exterior sheet metal. The hood is set between raised front fend ers to give the car a wider appearance. These fenders extend beyond the grille to give a longer look, although the wheelbase is kept at 114 inches. Overall width is increased by an inch, and the rear tread is increased by 1.5 inches. In front on the inside the steering column has been shortened and seat adjustment has been increased by an inch to improve driving posture and to give more leg and head room. The steering wheel is an inch smaller in diameter. The rear seat was moved backward 1.4 inches for more leg and knee room in the rear compartment. The Caliente is entered as the top-of-the-line Comet this year, The seats have thick foam rubber padding, and door panels, instrument panels and the steering wheel are trimmed with simulated wood grain. Power brakes and an AM-FM radio will be offered for the first time this year as options, and power steering will also be available. Four engines will be offered, topped by the 210 horsepower V-8 Williamsfield FHA Attends Program WILLIAMSFIELD—The annual fall officers training school of Section 9, Future Homemakers of America, was held at Northwestern High School, Sciota.
