Eisenhower Thursday pro posed extensive liberalization of existing restrictions on im migration to do away with racial and nationality qualifi cations for admission to this country In a special message to Congress Eisenhower p r o posed immediate action to double the number of quota immigrants now admitted an nually About 154000 immi grants are now admitted un der annual quotas The Presi dent would raise this to some thing over 300000 by legisla tion providing for acceptance of onesixth of one per cent of the total US population each year The Presidents second maj or proposal was for special legislation to provide for ac ceptance of thousands of refu gees from oppression and those forced to flee their homes because of political racial or religious persecu tion including those from Lat in American countries Under this new systsem for example the annual quota for Italy would not be based on the size of the socalled Ital ian ethnic group within the United States but on a per centage of actual immigration from Italy between 1924 and 1959 The President also asked that unused quotas of under subscribed countries be dis tributed among the oversub scribed countries on a propor tionate basis Eisenhower suggested that the present annual ceiling of 2000 on quotas covering the eastern and southeastern Asi atic countries within the so called AsiaticPacific triangle be removed While these Asian countries includingJapan would still be subject to an annual quota their quotas would not be sub ject to a regional ceiling The White House this would have the effect of liberalizing

were being held in the nation today and Vice President Nixon was the Re publican candidate and Sen John Kennedy the Democratic the results would be very very close judging by the latest measurement of sentiment Today the Nixon lead over Kennedy is almost negligible Nixon 500 Kennedy 494 Undecided 6 Excluding the undecided vote the figures become Nixon 503 Kennedy It must be kept in mind that all public opinion samplings are subject to a margin of error o approximately 4 per cent when the findings are at or very near the 50 per cent mark the way they are per cent for Nixon 497 per cent for Ken nedy Seven weeks ago findings on the same question showed the following Nixon 505 per cent Kennedy 485 per cent unde cided 1 per cent IN OTHER WORDS the NixonKennedy race is getting tighter and tighter Over the past seven weeks sentiment for Nixon has dropped onehalf per cent that for Kennedy has edged forward ninetenths of one per cent and the undecided voter group has dropped twofifths of one per cent When todays vote is stacked up alongside the findings re ported in two previous surveys with the undecided vote ex cluded the trend looks like this Ken Nixon nedy Oct 291959 522 478 Jan 281960 510 490 Today 503 497 From the above it can be that Nixon today is not do ing so well against Kennedy as he was doing in late October 1959 or in early January 1960 albeit todays findings in no way indicate that either Nixon or Kennedy is losing What todays findings do mean is that less than eight the elections will be held differences between two top contenders for the nations highest elective office are very slight It must be understood that todays poll findings reflect only current sentiment and that opin ion can and may change be tween now and fewer than eight months away Two
