Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1960, Yuma, Arizona By JONES OSBORN You think the pollsters arc con- fused? This year's presidential race hai EVERYone guessing! Even the formidable Associated Press. I remember AP vividly. It was during the 1960 Demo- cratic National Convention in Los Angeles.

OCTOBER 4, I960 PHONE SU 3-3333 ARIZONA 235 But right in the middle of the Stevenson demonstration, the Los Angeles Examiner hit the streets, and copies flooded convention hall. The Examiner carried a story by Associated Press which stated flatly that Kennedy half the nom- ination wrapped up and even told how every state was going to vote! AP was-positive, then. But listen to them, now: "ARIZONA: Most political analysis think it's Nixon with little to spare, as ot now. This estimate is based largely on a conservative trend among Ari- zona voters in recent years. Sen. Barry Goldvvaler's influence is expected'to give Nixon a lift. However, Democrats are more united and better organized than any time since 1918. Leaders of both parties say sentiment ban not jelled in many areas. The reUglous issue apparently is growing here." That's a long-winded way of saying, "We don't know, either."

Quadras Leads In Returns f ram Brazil Election RIO DE JANEIRO (UPI) -Op- position candidate Janio Quadros pullerl ahead of his tw-, today in early -inconclusive returns from Brazil's presidential elec- tions. Wiilj less than 1 per cent of an estimated 12 million ballots count- ed, Quadros had polled votes compared with for Marshal Henrique Teixeira Lott. the administration candidate, and for Adhemar De Barros, independent. An equally tight race was un- der way for the vice presidency. Li.

(UPI) The United States .aunched a 500-pound earth satel- lite radio station today on Ihe third birthday of the Sputnik- spawned age of space. The 51-inch ball, dabbed Cour- ier IB, carried high-speed tape recorders and radio equipment to serve as an orbiting microwave post to relay top-secret military communications around the earth's surface. The satellite rode aloft in the nose of an 80-foot Thor-Able-Star rocket. The shot, a repeat of an attempt which failed Aug. 18 when a rocket blew up, was aimed toward an orbit 650 miles high and as close to the equator as possible. Courier carried U.S. hopes for the nation's 28th space success since Russia stunned the world Oct. 4, 1957, by sending Sputnik I into orbit around earth. The Soviet Union has seven other space successes. Courier IB was the first step in a plan to provide Free World mil- itary forces with, instantaneous and espionage-free communica- tions. It weighed nearly three times as much as the 184-pound Sputnik I, and was described as "the: most complex 'satellite ever built." 5 If successful, Courier IB would relay. regular hews dispatches of United Press International and the .Associated Press by high- speed radio-teletype from Ft. Mon- mouth, N.J., to an Army Signal Corps station in Puerto Rico as one of its first tests. "Courier's basic function was to receive and record high-speed radioteletype and voice, messages from one station, and .relay them to another when .triggered by a coded signal, all; on microwave frequencies. Scientists called the system "practically unjammable." Courier IB could -memorize and transmit wordagc equal to a 50- page newspaper supplement, or the standard version of the King James Bible, in 10 minutes of operation. This is roughly equal to the total message traffic -carried by all existing transatlantic cable and radio links daily.

The Kohler .Co., hit by. fee nation's longest labor dispute in history, today processed, applications of former workers for reinstatement to- their- jobs. The workers, -who left their jobs more, than six years .to go on strike against the plumbingware firm, were granted the opportun- ity to seek reinstatement in a de- cision handed 'down' recently by the National Labor Relations Board. A spokesman for the firm, founc guilty of unfair labor practices by the NLRB, said "quite a number' of workers have returned to their jobs since the company began.ac- cepting reinstatement applications But the spokesman said it would be a week or 10 days before the firm knew how many bonafide workers applied to be returned to company payrolls. The workers, members.of the record is miles world per hour set by Brig. Gen. Joseph H. Moore at Edwards last Dec. llth. Davis told a news conference at the Pentagon that his maximum speed on the circular flight was well over miles an 2.3 times the speed at which sound, travels at the altitude. United Auto Workers, went on strike April.5, 1954. -The NLRB handed down its decision 1 a s Aug. 26th, and the strike endec officially a week later when the union applied for reinstatement of workers. Portions of the NLRB decision have been appealed by both the company and, the union. Letters were sent to work ers by the company. But not in eluded in the reinstatement offer were 89 employes whose discharge for misconduct during the strike was upheld by the NLRB. Spokesman Says Reds Will Stay UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (UPI) Soviet Union began racking today in its war with ieerelary-general Dag Hammars- tjold and a spokesman said thera i'as no question of Russia leav- ng the United Nations if he does not resign. The soflenecl Soviet attitude to- vard Hammarskjold came in the ace of repeated General. Assem- bly defeats and thunderous sup- port for the Swedish diplomat who old Premier Nikita Khrushchev Monday "I shall remain at my post." A member of the Soviet delega- tion said the Russian attitude loward Hammarskjold will depend upon his future conduct.. This was a far easier stand than. Khrushchev's demands he resign because the Communist bloc did not trust him. The Soviet spokesman said Kremlin leaders had made no de- cision whether to boycott him as they did to force the resignation of his predecessor, Norway's Trygve Lie. Ask Summit Meeting The delegation member said Russia would, support an.Austra-, [ian amendment to-.a- five-power! neutralist resolution to have it call for a new' Big.Jtour summit meet- ing.-instead of a meeting-between Khrushchev and President Eisen- hower, which' both have rejected. The Communist attack on Han> marskjold waned .in the assembly today and the Ukraine, which is actually a part of the Soviet Union, was- assigned to declare that the secretary-general had "soiled the honor" of the United Nations. This was far. milder than previous Communist-statements. It appeared the Soviet bloc had been surprised by the wild ac- claim 'with''which the assembly delegates greeted Hammarskjold's dramatic defense of himself Mon- day as a protector of: smaller nations. His sps.-ech, interrupted' three times by applause, received the longest ovation any speaker has received in the 2-wcek-old assembly. and the community in gen- ir. order to promote better ilics eral mental health.
