Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1960, Yuma, Arizona Yuma Queen Finalists: Goldsboro, Hulsey, Cannon, John, Linda Miller By JONES OSBORN If you're under 20, you won't even read this.

That's what the Forand bill is all about. It would require em- ployers and employes to contri- bute an added payroll tax to fi- nance social security benefits for medical aid to the elderly. It doesn't matter, at this mo- ment, whether I am for or against it. What DOES matter is that there are approximately 16 million per- sons in that over-65 age bracket right now. And 16 million votes are not to be sneezed at. After all, if they all voted, that would amount to 26 per cent of ALL the votes cast for both Stev- enson and Eisenhower four years ago.

Nixon Bui Brain Trust For Campaign WASHINGTON (UPI1 Vice President Richard M. Nixon, heartened by a poll of his Cali- fornia strength and unshaken by his third-place Wisconsin showing, is building a "brain trust" team for his big presidential push. A source close to Nixon dis- closed Saturday his campaign re- search force is being bolstered by professors of government from universities of Notre Dame and Michigan, by a University of Cal- ifornia administrator, and a re- search director borrowed from Time Magazine. But the Nixon camp made it clear that the unopposed GOP presidential candidate is not. be- ing panicked into any change in his basic plan for a gradual buildup in campaign activity. Nixon leaves for a two-day San Francisco visit Monday. In all. his associates say, he may make as many as 15 speeches in the next three as many o.s one of his Democratic opposite makes in one or two days. They claim the Democrats are not go- ing to set Nixon's campaign pace. Nixon, it was stated, would "rather be ahead in September than in June." 293 Head Auctioned in 5 Hours Yuma County youngsters sold a record 293 head of livestock at a marathon Junior Livestock Auc- tion at the Fairgrounds yesterday afternoon.

Religion Question Put to Kennedy By B. ,1. aivFAKLAND United Press International PHOENIX, Ariz. lUPI) John F.
