WEDNESDAY, JUNE 32, I960 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Nixon Gets Campaign Preview By ARTHUR BDSOft IT. LOUTS ff~ Vice President Richard M. Nixon has wound up • tour-day trip that took him deep Into Texas and far up in the Dakotas. And those who tagged along soon got the feeling that this was a shakedown cruise for the real thing, a practice run for the presidential campaign that la to come. The travel arrangements encouraged this belief. Here was Nixon in his own chartered, two-motored plane. Its' the special executive job, with couches, desks and plenty of working space. Here were a couple of dozen reporters traveling in another plane, landing just ahead of him as is usually done during a campaign. Preparations were so good that at every stop a band was out to greet him. Nixon hates to speak from a text. He thinks it comes be- Hussian Arrested «s Spv in Netherlands THE HAGUE, Netherlands (API — Police have arrested a Russian they claim was engaged IB espionage while registered as; a student at the Hague Institute for Social Studies.

That's the way he plans to do it when the campaign really gets rolling. But it wasn't simply the physical arrangements. Nixon still won't say he has the nomination locked up, although he did shyly confess Tuesday that if he were a betting man he might risk a little capital on it. He didn't say where he could find anyone to bet against him. or what the odds would be if he could. But while Democratic hope- •fuls joust with each other Nixon can turn to such items as: 1. His vice presidential running mate. He refuses to give any names, or to comment on any names given him. But he has said he wants a man who is loyal, who is willing to work ITCHING Torture Stopped like Magic Here's blessed relief from tortures of vaginal Itch, rectal itch, chafing, raib and eczema with an amazing new scientific formula called LANA- CANE.

His keeping well informed on what the administration is up to. Once the nomination is in the bag, Nixon said Tuesday, he | expects to be told of every ma-j jor statement coming on. "Generally," he said "we'll have pretty good coordination." Possibly no politician of our time has been so adept at turning what could be a political disaster into a political asset. The Venezuelan incident is aj good example. Many a politician might consider this riot a damaging blow to his career. But Nixon refers to il in almost every talk. And as he explains how he was spit upon, and how his wife's pretty red dress was covered with spit, he invariably gets sympathetic reaction. This is what Nixon himself calls turning a minus into a plus. Possibly the biggest surprise,! though is in his treatment of! the Democrats. In the old days no one whacked the Democratic party as soundly and as enthusiastically as Nixon. Now. possibly because he covets and needs a lot of Democratic votes if he expects to win in November, he treats them almost tenderly. That's why an Associated Press transmission error in his economic speech Tuesday was especially unfortunate. , Referring to administration critics, Nixon asked: "What sort of society are they proposing?" It came out: "What sort of Soviet are they proposing?" Nixon is doing no such name calling now. At this stage of the game at least, he's harsh mainly on Nikita Khrushchev and the Communists.

Phone HO 3-0113 CLOSED FOR VACATION as of June 20th WATCH FOR RE-OPENING DATE Candidates Charge: 'CanWiii* By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (fl — Supporters of the two leading prospects hacked away at each other today with can't-win charges in the final pre- convention phase of the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. It's the type of political infighting that is more effective in campaign workers' private contacts and meetings of small groups than in the speeches and statements intended for public consumption. Backers of Sen. John F. Kennedy (D-Mass.) were contending that Senate Democratic Leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas couldn't win in November even if he should get the nomination— which they say they are confident he won't. » The Kennedy people find it is sufficient from their standpoint to inquire if interested Democrats believe the Texas senator can carry New York, California and • other large states. Their implication is that he can't. Johnson's associates take the same line, with variations. Their first question when they arrive in any state is: "Can Kennedy carry your state?" They don't bring up the subject of Kennedy's Roman Catholic religion, but the implication is therr. The Johnson men —and the Senate leader himself for that matter— also are peddling the political line that Kennedy, a youthful appearing 43, hasn't the experience and maturity to handle Soviet Premier Nikita SOUP SUPPERS Methodist p° stai rates and Enrollment Rise Is Small h Worrying Edd Byrnes B> CVlHtntA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer < NEW YORK (AP>-Edd Byrnes, the tall good-looking young actor who shot to TV stardom last year playing a hip apprentice private eye In "7?

Dr. Birger Dahl of Wilmette told the Rock River Conference Tuesday that Methodist membership increased only 1.3 per cent in the past year and he called for "greater acceleration in evangelism." Dr. Dahl. a Chicago-area district superintendent, noted the Rock River membership increased by 1,999 to 181,175 since 1959 but that this was an increase of only 1.3 per cent, compared with a 1.7 per cent rise in the nation's population. Commenting on the conference campaign to raise $1,500,000 for higher education during a three- year period, Dr. Dahl reported that $298.000 had been received at the end of the first year. He said total conference financial contributions amounted to $11.700.000 of which $766,000 was benevolences. In addition, he said, the conference spent more than 10 million dollars for buildings and improvements during the last four years.
