Key Issues i "There are such key issues already on the calendar (the Senate calendar of bills awaiting action' as medical care for the aged, housing, aid to education, '•mutual security appropriations, and minimum.wage legislation. "W&, intend to devote our full 'energies lo the enactment of this program, and we will leave our i principal campaigning until the end of the session. We hope to have the cooperation of the Republicans and their candidate." Kennedy said the points outlined do not represent the whole program planned. He said he is in contact with the House Agriculture Committee exploring what farm legislation it might be possible to enact. He said he also would contact the chairmen of various committees to explore whether there is any possibility of enacting civil rights legislation. Johnson said he expects Congress to meet six days a week, starting its session early and working into Ihe night. A reporter told him Vice President Richard M. Nixon, the Republican standard-bearer, has suggested that the Senate refrain from voting on important bills on Saturdays lest it embarrass any nominees.

The figure could be better than that in view oi the fact that the Safety Council term is "per 10,000 registered vehicles," if one allows for the possibility that not all registered vehicles in Alton are city licensed. The score of Madison, Wis., in the 100,000 to 200.000 population category was .4 per 10,000 registered vehicles. But that was the «nly category leader listed us better than Alton.
