Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - November 14, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin VOL.LflNo.21 Post-CRESCENT 26 B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER Nixon Sees Possibility of New Labor Law Might Curb Power Of Both Sides if Steel Strike Holds BY IRWIN J. MILLER Indianapolis Legisla- tion to curb the power of both steel companies and the Uni- ted Steelworkers result If no strike' settlement is reached within the 80 day cooling-off period, Vice Presi- dent Richard M. Nixon pre- dicted Friday night. He warned that if the dis- pute remains unsolved, it will land in the lap of congress in an election year when "poli- tical considerations will have far more effect than they should have." Farm Income "We have hopes that xvithin this 80-day period, both the steel companies and the union will recognize that if they go to the end of the period with- out settlement, there will be a possibility of congressional action detrimental to Nixon said. The vice president gave his views in a question-and-an- swer session at the banquet of the 50th anniversary con- vention of Sigma Delta Chi, professional journalism fra- ternity. He said also that the farm income problem looms as possibly the major domestic issue for the 1960 campaign and the administration now is .Turn to Page 2, Col. 2 ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven'Cents Rockefeller Makes Swing Into Oregon Eugene, Ore.

The New York Republican governor, disavowing any present intention to run for the GOP presidential nomina- tion, will speak first to stu- dents at the University of Ore- gon here. His busy schedule includes a 40-mile flight on to Corvallis to attend the Oregon State- Stanford football game, and a 26-mile drive to Salem for a dinner talk at Willamette uni- versity. In Seattle Sunday After the Willamette speech, his schedule includes a closed meeting with GOP Gov. Mark Hatfield's cabinet. He's to fly to Seattle tomorrow morning. Yesterday in San Francisco he met in closed receptions with local Republican leaders, spoke at a civic luncheon and dined atop Nob hill at the ex- clusive Pacific Union league club. Rockefeller told the Oregon students he is a relative new- comer to politics and that be- fore he ran for governor in 1958 he "had no genuine ap- preciation of the role that the political parties as such play in our system of government." "I fear this area of ignor- ance is only too common in he said. The governor urged the col- legians to join, the political party of their choice and be- come active workers. "These Democrats Spurn Sales Tax; Expect to Back Withholding Ike Hit by Kennedyon Soviet Issue BY JAMES BARTELT Post-Crescent Xeux Service Milwaukee The expected state presidential primary contest next year got off to its formal start Friday night as Sen. John Kennedy key- noted the Wisconsin Demo- tic convention with Sen. Hu- bert-Humphrey scheduled to speak Saturday night. Kennedy delivered a fiery speech comparing the seven years of the Eisenhower ad- ministration to the purpose- less years of English history when nazi Germany was building its strength. But the demonstrated backing for the Massachusetts senator, as measured by political conven- tions went over with a thud. Reuss Cheered Youthful Kennedy parti- sans, including those from Outagamie and Kewaunee counties, walked three times around the convention hall without gaining any march- ers or many noise makers from the delegates.

The convention is being held in an atmosphere of presi- dential year politics. Dele- gates are wearing Humphrey and Kennedy buttons, and hospitality rooms are func- tioning for both camps. What probably is just as Important in the still fluid Wisconsin party is that signs have been posted for a meeting Saturday of persons still plug- in a Montana blizzard. The storm swirled down on Rich Maxwell of Warm Springs, Mont., and Robert Amick of Billings, Mont., while they were hunting elk in the primitive mountain country of western Montana. Both were found safe late yesterday. Maxwell hiked six miles through waist deep snow to find help. Amick remained in nursing a lame the cabin, knee. The two Montana university students motored 50 miles southeast of here early Wed- nesday and parked near the gold ghost town of Garnet. "We walked about six miles into the Blackfoot valley when it started snowing said Maxwell. "We couldn't see." Found Log Cabin The youths came across a log cabin which had a supply of wood, some cocoa and a jar of dry beans. The boys tried to hike back to their car the next day, but turned back in waist depp drifts when Amick's knee pained him. Snow continued to fall, and the temperature was near zero.

Geared to prepare readers for next Saturday's gun season in central and southern areas, including Outagam- ie county, the stories are timed to inform as well as entertain.

It didn't start, so r hik- ed to Garnet and found an old fellow about 75 years old. "He gave me some coffee and a roll, and some kindling which I used for fire to heat the car's oil pan. The car started. "I drove to U.S. Highway 10 and into Missoula to tell the sheriff's office where Am- ick was. They got him out. "It's sure good to be back." Kennedy departed from the prepared text of his speech to observe that the record of Gov. Gaylord Nelson deserv- es his being named as the key- note speaker for the national party convention in Los An- geles next summer. Nation Drifting Since 1953, Kennedy said in his speech, the nation has been drifting when it should have sailed hard into the wind.

This was made clear Friday night when delegates to the annual Wisconsin Democratic party convention adopted without debate a statement of principles reiterating their op- position to such a tax. A statement was drafted by a committee headed by Allen Flannigan of Milwaukee and presented to about 700 dele- gates just before Sen. John Kennedy (D-Mass) made his keynote speech to the conven- tion. A resolution supporting Gov. Gaylord Nelson's withholding tax plan was prepared for presentation to the convention today. This was expected to be adopted with only a few minor revisions. The governor has proposed increases in in- come taxes on "a pay-as-you- go basis." Delayed by Storm The convention was slow in starting, due primarily by in- ability of many delegates to get here because of the snow- storm. Registration totaled 648 for the first general ses- sion but was expected to reach before the con- vention ends Sunday. A fight over the party chair- manship appeared in the mak- ing after Herman Jessen, Phelps, national 'committeei man irom Wisconsin, an- nounced that would run against incumbent Patrick J. JLucey, 38, of Madison. The 72-year-old Jessen, who long has been odds with Lu- cey, was assured nomination when Wendelin Kraft, a Mil- waukee county executive com- mittee said he would be "highly honored" to nominate Jessen. Welcomes Contest Lucey said he welcomed a contest with Jessen, adding that "I don't know of very many delegates who are criti- cal of my but since Jessen is critical I think the responsbile thing is to test his popularity against mine." The'Milwaukee group head- ed by Kraft had been trying to get Sverre Roang, Edger- ton, convention chairman, to run against Lucey but the lat- ter took himself out of the race, declaring "I'do. not choose to run." Jessen also made a floor speech objecting to the finan- cial report submitted by Da- vid Rabinovitz, party treas- urer, contending it did not show a true picture of the BY JAY JOSLYN Wrlttr The taste of Wisconsin wea- with six other convicts.
