moves with the quiet as surance of a man who has made up his mind on what course to follow and will stay with it be cause he is convinced that is what he must do There is no doubt he was an gered by Soviet Premier Khrush chevs attacks upon haps not so much by the lang uage as the derisive table thumping gestures which ac companied it BUT OUTWARDLY the UN secretarygeneral appears calm and

the General Assembly debate as possible Hammarskjold sat on the podium while Khrushchev deliv ered the attack in which he called on him to resign ALL OF THIS has been a strain But despite this he re mains amiable and approach able as ever to his staff a trait that engenders a kind of fierce loyalty and devotion from those closest to him He has not been making the Assemblys round of diplomatic receptions But this is not un usual since he rarely takes them in Erect and wiry he looks much younger than his 55 years But since the start of the Congo crisis in July he has not been able to pursue

its investigation in July had decided to return infor mations rather than indictments against the individu als whose names were not disclosed Charges in an information involve misdemeanors while indictments cover felonies WASHINGTON Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taf t Benson is out as a GOP political campaigner in the 1960 presidential race Nobody took him put of the campaign a Benson aide said He took him self out It was his own decision I AP Photofax NIXON ANSWERS KENNEDY Vice President squared off in the second of their great TV debates Nixon right takes off on a statement made by Sen This is the view that some million persons got Jack Kennedy as the two presidential candidates of the scrappy session Both candidates scored well Showing by Nixon improved By UNITED PKESS INTERNATIONAL Republicans and Democrats alike agreed Vice President Richard Nixons second appear ance in the television debating arena was better than his first Most of the voters queried at random across the nation hought Friday nights clash be ween Republican nominee xon and Democratic standard Dearer Sen John F Kennedy was much more spirited than their first meeting in Chicago A FEW VOTERS said they had changed their minds and in tended to switch their allegi ance but many more said they were still undecided and wanted to watch the remaining two de bates between the candidates Still others insisted that the per formance by their favorites tended only to solidify their sup port Both Democrats and Republi cans volunteered that Nixon looked better physically and made a better showing than he did in the Chicago debate Several mentioned Nixon and Kennedys stands on Quemoy and Matsu Islands in the Wash ington debate and Cecil Smith Dallas electronic technician said he might switch to Kennedy because of this I agree with him on this Matsu business Smith said Until now I was sort of lean ing toward Nixon but I think this Matsu business has put me in the Kennedy boat Catherine Stanley a Pitts burgh Republican said she leaned toward Nixon after the first debate AFTER watching the second debate I now feel sure Nixon is the better man Mrs Stanley said Harry R Sowers a Pittsburgh office manager was among the many who said they were still undecided I havent made up my mind on either candidate so I couldnt change it Sowers said Be tween them there is no real dif ference except one of party Democrat John F Kennedy of Pittsburgh said he was still for Kennedy but added Nixon definitely looked better than in the last debate I have been for Kennedy all along but Im willing to listen said Pittsburgh housewife Mar garet Cillo Nixon seemed more relaxed this time Nixon showed up much bet ter Kennedy seemed more emphatic and won more points as a debater though not be cause of his material said Everett D Roper a Needham Mass business executive Im still hanging although I liked Mr Nixon Both did real well said Albert R Lauder man Chicago James L Slaughter a Miami manufacturers agent said the debate had caused him to switch In the beginning I was more or less a Nixon supporter Slaughter said But after the last two debates Im afraid I have more or less switched to Kennedy I think he seems to know what hes talking about more US complains Cuban plane harassed sub WASHINGTON UPI United States Saturday said a Cuban air force plane buzzed a U S submarine in an ag gressive manner 28 miles off Key West Fla Friday The State Department said it protested the incident in a note delivered to the Cuban embassy here Friday night demanding that Cuba take such steps as may be required to prevent a repetition Officials said the U S Sub marine Balao accompanied by a U S Navy S2F escort aircraft was on maneuvers in international waters more than 60 miles from Cuba They said a Cuban air force Sea Fury suddenly dove on them and made repeated low passes The Sea Fury is a British made propeller aircraft Ive always liked Nixons way of thinking said Charles Franklin York This de bate confirmed me in feeling that hes the right man Other voter reaction Mrs Franklin Wheatley Mil ton Mass I decided on Nixon three weeks ago James Peters New York was undecided before the de bate But now my thinkin tends to incline toward Ken nedy Paul Isberg Los Angeles Perhaps the first debate wa a draw but Nixon came ou way ahead this time John Pavelle Washington D C Army Colonel Ive mad up my mind but the debate gave me some doubts Mrs Thomas F Holmes Clarkston Ga It left me in the same position I was in be fore undecided AP Pliotofax LOOKING DP TO A QUEEN Frederik IX leave the San Francisco out in her Sunday best the little girl at City Hall where the royal couple were the left gives Queen Ingrid of Denmark officially welcomed to the city Mayor the once over as the queen and King George Christopher is at right I Bristling debate on TV Candidates dont agree WASHINGTON PresU dent Richard M Nixon and Sea John F Kennedy fought a brist ing television battle Friday night that left them miles apart on most campaign issues With millions of Americans ooking on and listening in the unsmiling presidential nominees xmnd common ground on only a ew topics Neither would go into any summit conference without prior diplomatic spadework and some anglible assurance that Soviet Premier Khrushchev meant to negotiate and not just to grind out propaganda IF RECESSION threatened Doth would consider tax cuts to pump new life into the economy Each sees difficult times ahead with spending for de ense economic assistance and other programs rising But from Cuba to Formosa Kennedy and Nixon disagreed on international affairs They threw sharp remarks at each other about civil rights They whacked at each other about the nations position in the cold war They wrangled over the de pressed areas problems and ec onomic conditions generally Who won Both sides thought they had although the debaters themselves said the decision wont be known until next months election This second of four scheduled debates had none of the polite toedancing that marked the candidates first encounter They never used the word but each came close to calling the other a liar More than once the cameras found Kennedy listening to his Republican opponent with an air of disbelief a Whats this expression on his face NIXON on the other hand stared grimly straight ahead as his rival spoke blinking his eyes as he stores up ammunition for an often caustic reply as his riv al spoke The vice president whose pic ture left some of his supporters wincing in the first debate showed up much better in his second effort Kennedy appeared a little more relaxed than his rival Nixon fielded the first ques tion and started off the dont agree note that held through out most of the crossfire of ex changes He didnt agree he said with Kennedys statement as related by a questioner that the Eisen hower administration should take the responsibility for the loss of Cuba He said he doesnt believe Cuba is lost He said there isnt any question that the people there who want to be free are going to be supported and that they will attain their freedom But he wanted to make one thing clear Nixon said There isnt any question but that we will defend our rights there KENNEDY REPLIED tartly he never said Cuba was lost but only that today Cuba is lost to freedom The candidates clashed just as acridly over the defense of Formosa held by the Chinese Nationalists Kennedy said the islands of Quemoy and Matsu off the coast of China had been called indefensible in 1958 by Christian A Herter then un dersecretary of state as well as by military leaders I think it is unwise to take the chance of being dragged into a war which may lead to a world war over two islands which are not strategically de fensible which are not accord ing to their testimony essential to the defense of Formosa he said Nixon fired back that he com pletely disagreed with Kennedy Now I think as far as Quemoy and Matsu are con cerned that the question is not the two little pieces of real es tate the vice president said They are unimportant It isnt the few people who live on them They are not too im portant It is the principle in volved HE SAID THAT if tht UniUd States forced its Nationalist al lies off the islands a chain re action might result In my opinion he said this is the same kind of woolly A ;
