Aueclkted art Uaited Fun MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY NOVEMBER 12 Copy Piper ConiUti Four One Ne A hedging game by politicians Nobody wants to stick his neck far By EARL MAZO New York Herald Tribune News Service a clan destine candidate for President isnt easy But after weighing all their burdens about a dozen states men currently withstanding the ordeal would probably agree that nothing they face is more bothersome than the question Are you a candidate when it is asked in Reporters never seem to stop They keep at different and night And candidates quickly discover that the hoary I want to be is a good governor or senator vice president or as tire some to hear as it is to utter THUS ASPIRANTS for the highest post of power in the free world find themselves con cerned largely with phrasing disclaimers And haying to be freshly evasive day in and day out taxes the ingenuity of the most articulate candidates and the most prolific ghost writ ers Among other things there is always the danger that the pub lic might believe the disclaimer That nearly happened to Ad lai E Stevenson He landed at National Airport last June with a prepared statement that opened with the words I will not be the

Eisenhower Ameri cas No 1 Republican for more than an hour Afterward when he showed up in the midst of the waiting reporters he shook hands all around and stated he would comment only on civi defense and no other subject But the reporters persisted This was the essence of the informal press conference Kids agree now Rigging isnt fair FREEHOLD N J Wi Is honesty the best policy A high school class here evidently thinks The students at Freehold Regional High School were taught a lesson by their American history teacher Melvin C Willett The class held a discussion on rigged television quiz shows and in the words of Willett As we discussed the subject I became perturbed at the attitude of most of the students They felt that because of the big money prizes involved and be cause it was not illegal it was all right for quit contestants to accept So Willett made up a real whopper of an American history quiz He hinted to nine of the students that he wouldnt mind if they looked at the answers lying on his desk They did The nine got perfect scores Willett flunked the rest of the class Then Willett revealed what he had done They all objected he said complainingabout the unfairness of
