What about budget balancing the government spending? Taxes and inflation? Here lie the bread and butter issues of the coming campaign, and here's in analysis of the presidential candidates' approach to them. Another in a series of articles on principal issues. By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) - Other issues may make blacker bead- lines as the presidential campaign advances, but the biggest gulf between the Democratic and Republican standard-bearers Is on the issue of national economic policy. Sen. John .sachusetts closer to the extreme liberal of the Democratic party in F. Kennedy of Mashas moved steadily his career of nearly 14 years in Con gress. terfprence with the free economy. On one basic objective the two young candidates concur — nvire rapid national economic growth. They differ in the routes to b£ tak en to the goal.

Nixon stands for "fiscal responsibility"; stern use of the tight- money weapon against inflation; and higher taxes only If the cold war or other emergency need requires greater government spend- [ ing. j But Nixon himself seems to have been pushed leftward by po- CarroTNort tfote<» !

HOUSING Kennedy has voted for public housing, liberalized mortgage credit, slum clearance and housing for the elderly. Nixon has spoken out on occasion against Democratic housing bills which, in his view, would have been cost'y and inflationary. INFLATION Both consider inflation a major —if not the foremost—domestic problem. Nixon favors orthodox methods of keeping prices down- restraint in federal spending, contraction of credit, use of persuasion to keep wage settlements reasonable. Kennedy subscribes to the Democratic platform demand for restraints on "administered prio ing"—the ability of some industries to maintain and increase prices regardless of demand. Nixon, as head of the anti-inflation committee, has rejectee', the theory that administered prices have been a major factor in the inflation of the postwar year.

(HINT: It's the compact car for people who are not) On the left you see an unhappy victim of "stoop- over styling." The low roof and narrow door of this 1960 car make both entry and exit back- buckling maneuvers. It's a typical fault in- the new compacts and some big 1960 cars, too. But on the right, the same man alights with comfort and dignity because this is the 1960 Rambler 6—the car that's compact in exterior dimensions only. Rambler's high, wide doors eliminate grunting contortions. It's just one indication of the way Ramblers are designed to give the most usefulness to the user. Some other examples are Airliner Reclining Seats* that adjust to 5 different relaxing positions, including Travel Beds . . . sectional sofa front seats* that glide back and forth individually ... Adjustable Headrests.* RAMBLER OWNERS MOST LOYAL OWNERS Useful, practical features like those described above, plus Rambler's basic excellence, make Rambler owners the most loyal car owners. This is proved by many surveys done by magazines and other such independent organizations. The most recent survey, of owners of 6-cylinder "low- priced" and compact cars, shows again that more Rambler owners are better pleased with their cars than owners of the other makes. For example, Rambler owners are best satisfied of all with the interior dimensions of their cars . . . rate their cars tops in heating and ventilating efficiency ... in trouble-free operation .. . high in performance and tops in over-all usefulness to the user. More Rambler owners rate their cars best in value for the money. More Rambler owners said they would buy the same make again, RAMBLER IDEAS LEAD THE INDUSTRY One example is Single-Unitf construction—a Rambler idea. Another is Deep-Dipt rustproof- ing—no other U.S. car offers this complete, inside-out protection against rust and corrosion. Rambler brought out the original compact car in 1950. Although practically every car maker has come out with an imitation, Rambler sales have continued to soar—up 22% over last year. Everyone knows that as volume goes up, sales costs come down. So, Rambler dealers can pass the savings on to you. Your Rambler dealer would like to help you save. See him today.
