On the Republican side, the latest evidence was in public view. Vice President Richard M. Nixon and Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York offered it in major speechs Tuesday. On the Democratic side, the latest evidence involved private party meetings. Supporters of Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachu- setts'and Sen. Lyndon B.

In a speech In St. Louis, Nixon criticized those who say that the Soviet Union is growing at a much faster economic rate than the United States and who call for government steps to change this. Baps Critics "The critics argue that if we would just adopt their pet economic philosophy we too would grow like the Soviets," Nixon told the National Junior Chamber of Commerce. "They invite us to join them in playing what is rapidly becoming the most fashiona'ble political parlor game of our time—a game we might call "growthmanship.' " But Rockefeller, in a television interview in Binghamton, N.Y., said economic growth was "far more important than a parlor game. It affects the lives and well-being of the people of our country." The governor, who says he would be available for a Republican draft at the national convention, has called often for an increased growth in the economy, In an address before the Binghamton Rotary Club Tuesday, Rockefeller said "there is som- thing seriously wrong with the working of the decision-making process of our government." He cited the U2 incident as one indication. Wantt> New Office He said the government needs a super-cabinet official, a First Secretary of the,Government, to •'assist the President in the exercise of his authority in the whole area of national security and international affairs." This proposal was considered once by the Eisenhower administration and rejected. Rockefeller's revival of it was considered a criticism of administration policies, which Nixon has defended. Taylor, a member of the steering committee to establish! the center, spoke at the general! business meeting of the union] at Steelvvorkers' Abel Hall. i Taylor explained that the vocational training program and sheltered workshop probably will operate within the same building but are actually separate parts of the total facility. "The objectives of the training program," Taylor said, "are to develop those fundamental characteristics which are essential to any successful employe, such as dependability, rapid work pace, and concern for quality; assist the individual to recognize and develop whatever vocational abilities and skills le might posses to the extent that his personal resources and general shop operations will permit; and help him to overcome his personal problems and difficulties to improve his opportunities, not only as a future employe, but also as a person. "The purpose of the sheltered workshop." he continued, "is somewhat more restricted but nevertheless, equally important since it will provide stable employment opportunities to those handicapped persons who are unable, either permanently or temporarily, to find other employment in the community when their training is completed." Taylor pointed out that the operations of the proposed fa cility will be similar to those of a small industrial firm. The handicapped persons training in the program, as well as those who remain as employes, will be expected to produce work which will have to meet certain standards of quality and be completed according to pre-determined production schedules. Wages will be paid to these people on a piece-rate basis and the total amount earned by each large day to day temperature changes south.

Police took Freshour to St. Joseph's Hospital to have the wound near his shoulder given emergency treatment. Police said they learned that Freshour at the time of injury was accompanying Miss Carolyn Belle, 27. also of the 1721 Feldwisch address. It was she who 'first complained to police of tliei ice-pick tossing incident. Police said' that after check-i ! ing into the drive-in disturbance and moving Freshour to the hospital, they picked up Hollis !and Lyons for investigation, su- ispecting them of being occupants of the automobile name,d in the two complaints that had Ibeen made. !

The Circuit Court jury of en men and five women deliberated little more than an hour Tuesday evening before return ing its verdict to Circuit Judge Joseph J.
