While admitting the need for a highly-trained" army, Nel- son stressed the importance of the air force in today's world. In answer to another point- blank question put to him by the college audience, regarding his opinion on Sen.

Eisen- hower that he is opposed to Wis- consin's junior senator, the nom- inee said. People in his adminis- tration are working for censure, he said, and Republican anti- McCarthy candidates have "the strong support of the President." IN RESPONSE TO A QUERY as to whether he believed Con- gressman Davis' Tidelands Oil voted had been Nel- son said, "I have never said that, nor will I say it. I think he voted wrong."

The vote means the co-op can now start construction of an esti- mated one half million dollar dai- ry processing plant on the rezon- ed site.

The address is scheduled for ,-0 I business. 9.30 pm. CST. THE PRESIDENT SPOKE TO THE GOLDEN GUERNSEY rezomng petition resulted in a pitched battle between Mayoi C. C. Smith and plan commission member Robert Smart. The peti- tion asked to change the zoning from agriculture to general in- dustrial. The building site is included in a 105 acre tract of land that offi- cially became city property on Monday. It is located on the east side of Delafield avenue from the city limits north to Hy.

THE DEMOCRATIC CANDI-] date stated that the present ad- ministration is "stabilizing us into a depression." He felt that "doz- ens of things could be done that this administration fails to do" in clearing up the unemploy- ment problem. Nelson urged the students to take an interest in the election and learn to understand the view- point of others. "The quality of leadership equals the quality of the people who send candidates to Washing- ton and Madison." he said. The law of supply and demand is ap- plicable, he felt, since "if you permit irresponsibility in govern- ment, that's what you get." Awarded For Crash Injuries A Milwaukee man was award- ed a total of bv a 12-mem- ber county court jury here Wed- nesday as the result of injuries he suffered in an auto accident Oct. 1, He 1952. is Ernest Radtke who brought suit against Harold Bet- tin, Milwaukee route 14 and the American Mutual Liability Insur- ance co. of Milwaukee. Radtke said in his complaint he was a passenger in a car struck by the auto driven by Bettin at the intersection of Hy. 100 and W. Oklahoma avenue in Milwau- kee county. Radtke said he suffered a brain concussion and bruises and injur- ies to both knees. County Judge William Gram- ling found that Bettin was negli- gent because he failed to stop for a ,red light at the intersection The jury then awarded Radtke for medical expenses. for loss of earnings and for pain, suffering and disability. The jury disallowed any com- pensation for future medical ex- penses. New Berlin Boy Bitten by Dog A four-year-old town of New Berlin boy. James Ambrowiak, of 2878 S. 132nd St., was taken to a Milwaukee hospital Wednesday evening after he was bitten by a neighbor's dog. The boy's mother, Mrs. Frank Ambrowiak. told sheriff's depu- ties the boy was playing in the yard when he was attacked by a dog belonging to Hubert Black, who lives two houses away. The boy's cheek was bruised and his upper lip was cut. Black took the boy to the hos- pital. Deputies advised him to ktep the dog tkd up in hif yard. Heart Attack Fatal To Oconomowoc Man An Oconomowoc man, John Ziegler, 51. died suddenly of a heart attack about 5.20 p.m. Wed- nesday. Ziegler's body was found lying face down on the shoulder of Hy. P south of Hy. 16 near the Mil- waukee Road tracks about p.m. by Lee Posselt, Oconomowoc route 5. Sheriff's deputies and an am- bulance were called to the scene and Ziegler was pronounced dead by a doctor at the Oconomowoc Memorial hospital. CORONER ALVIN JOHNSON ruled that Ziegler died of a coro- nary attack. The attending physi- cian said there were no signs of external violence. Johnson said no inquest will be held. Ziegler had been caretaker of the Frank Norris estate at Ocono- mowoc Lake for the past 20 years. He was born in Hancock. Mich, and formerly lived in Oshkosh and Kenosha. Survivors include one brother, Henry, Detroit; one sister, Mrs. John Quilici, Kenosha; and nie- ces and nephews. Service? will be held Saturday at a.m. from the Bruch Fun- eral home in Kenosha and from St. Anthony's Catholic church there at 9 a.m. The Rev. Michael Dutko will officiate. Friends may call at the funeral home Friday after 12 noon. the 300th anniversary of Jewish life in the United States. Mentioning some obstacles still in the way of achievement of an enduring peace, he declared: "The principal and continuing factor is the persistently aggres- sive design of Moscow and Peip- ing, which shows no evidence of genuine change despite their pro- fessed desire to relax tensions and to preserve peace BUT, HE SAID, MUCH PRO- gress has been made toward thwarting the spread of commun- ism through the new Western Europe defense alliance agree- ment and through the Southeast Asia pact recently signed at Man- ila, for example. He also mentioned improve- ment of the situations in Suez. Trieste and Guatemala. He cited other areas and other fields too and added: "In these many ways our na- tion will continue tirelessly in its quest for peace based on justice. In recent month: we have come yet we know that the road ahead is long and difficult." He said this country has three avenues in its quest for peace. "FIRST, WE MUST TIRE- lessly seek through the United Nations, through every other available means to establish the conditions for honorable peace. "Second, we must promote the unity and collective strength of other free peoples. "Third, we must maintain enough military strength to deter aggression and promote peace.1' SOME 305 A'CRES OF LAND comprising the Westowne area now m the process of being an- nexed are located to the west of Delafield avenue. Smart, who is a real estate agent, recently purchased land in the Westowne area, which, he ad- mitted at Wednesday's meeting, he hopes to sell in residential lots. Smith indicated in his argu- ment for rezoning that Smart was being influenced against rezoning because of the land he purchased at Westowne "My property won't be affect- ed by the Smart answer- ed. "It's too far to the west You can't even see the building site from my property It's just that I think the whole area will be built up by residences SMART, ON hand, criticized Forfeit Bail Three bail forfeitures of 514 apiece were accepted by Judge Scott Lowry in municipal court in Waukesha this morning. Two of the forfeitures were as a result of speeding and one was a stop sign violation. THE OTHER the mayor and annexation committee members, whom, he said, went beyond their authority in making certain promises to the cooperative with- out consulting other city bodies. The mayor admitted that Mc- Kerrow had been given "assur- I ances" by himself and the annex- ation committee that these condi- tions would be met. THE MAYOR WENT A STEP further and insisted the petition be acted on immediately because delay would hold up the co-op's building plans. When opposition appeared from Smart and also from N. C. Spill- man, another commission mem- ber. Smith grew angry and said: "If we don't approve this peti- tion then it will be quite apparent that Waukesha isn't interested in getting industry into the city If I and the annexation committee exceeded our authority in giving McKerrow assurances, we did it only because we thought the new an Meeting On Pool Dispute City Atty. William Callow was scheduled to meet with a union representative in Milwaukee at 2 p.m. today in an attempt to settle the most recent work stoppage at the new swimming pool. Workers at the pool refused to work Tuesday when a group of union business agents reportedly appeared at the building site. Some of the workers are mem- bers of AFL unions and others belong to an independent union. A court injunction has prohibit- ed picketing at the site but the appearance of the union agents could not be termed picketing, Callow said. The men still have not returned to the project. CALLOW SAID HE WILL talk with John Zancanaro, presi- dent of the Milwaukee Building Construction Trades council, AFL, in an attempt to get the men back to work. At the same time, a legal an- swer by a union involved in a similar court case was filed in circuit court here Wednesday. union the International Hod Carriers, Building and Con- struction Laborers union local 392, AFL, is the defendant in a suit brought by Eugene C. Plante, Delafield contractor. Plante. who is constructing a service station for the Dale En- terprises at 521 S. Grand ave., has requested an injunction against picketing of the building site. AFL WORKERS PICKETED the project on the complaint that men employed there are not members of the union. Work at that site however, has proceeded despite picketing. The union, in its answer, denied Plante's charge that picketing prevented work from proceeding and that it violated a statute that provides that picketing is illegal if there is no labor dispute in- volved. -a (Freeman Staff Photos) Emil Greenwald (bottom Wauke- sha route 4, was pleasantly surprised to return to his farm today and find 10 acres of his corn crop ail shocked for him.

Glenn Davis' chances for reelection were listed as "doubt- ful1' today by a Congressional Quarterly survey. Several weeks ago the survey said Davis had a "fighting chance" for reelection The Quarterly's report had 113 marginal districts based upon in- formation received up until Oct. 15. In a report issued on Sept. 10 there were 103 districts where the incumbent had a good chance of losing. BESIDES DAVIS, THE QUAR- terly believes that Rep. Charles Kersten and Rep. Lester Johnson are in danger of being upset. Kersten is a Republican from the fifth district. Johnson, a Demo- crat, represents the ninth district.

HERE'S ANOTHER INDICA- tion of voter interest: requests have come in since the Septem- ber primary for 98 absentee bal- lot? to be used by sen icemen Incumbent Says Opponent Gave Distorted View MADISON IB Gov. Kohle? charged today that a statement about dairy prices, made by his Democratic opponent, William Proxmire, was a "scandalous hoax." The Republican governor, seek- ing his third term, leveled his blast at Proxmire in an early morning radio broadcast over a network of 28 stations. Kohler said that Proxmire, in television broadcasts, distorted effects of Republican farm poli- cies by misrepresenting the case of a Stoughton, Wis., farmer, Os- car Holte. using Holte as an ex- ample of the effect of farm poli- cies on the income of an average dairy farmer. KOHLER CHARGED THAT Proxmire: Tried to deceive farmers by comparing wartime prices with peacetime prices; concealed a drop in the milk test of Holte's herd in citing the farmer's case; concealed that a pure milk asso- ciation premium was in effect in one month and not in another; concealed an increase in associa- tion membership fees which af- fected the price; and took full production of the farm for one month and compared it with 60 per cent of the production for an- other, "completely distorting the true situation as far as the whole income was concerned." Kohler said he spoke to Holte and asked him to give the facts on his income from milk. Holte, Kohler said, replied by letter, presenting material which opposed Proxmire's claims, and told the Republican nominee: "I PERSONALLY WOULD like to assure you that I in no way intended to misrepresent the dairy farmer's income by giving the Democrat candidate this in- formation. However, I want to assure you that I believe in being fair and square in presenting true facts and I hope this letter to you will prove my sincerity in this matter." Kohler said farm friends in Dane county described Holte as a Democrat, but an honest man." Kohler said he was not trying to convince anyone that "they should be happy with the prices paid for milk in May, 1954. I share with every farmer the be- lief that they were too low, and as governor of the nation's greatest dairy state I recognize that farm prosperity is vital to Wisconsin's economic welfare. "I BELIEVE, Kohler said, "that the facts given by Mr. Holte, raise the question whether a man so careless with the truth has a right to ask for support for the highest office in the state." Kohler acknowledged that "every farmer who looks at his milk check these days knows he isn't getting the prices he got dur- ing the Korean War "Naturally, that doesn't make him he said.
