ASSOCIATED PRESS A wideranging third tele vision argument found the two major presidential candidates are agreedon only two sub jects Defending Berlin and Condemning religious bigotry Separated by the width of the continent but brought to a single screen Vice Presi dent Richard M Nixon and Sen John F Kennedy flailed at each other Thursday night an the issues of war and Action by Louisiana watched Illegitimacy is target By WILLIAM DICKINSON JR GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON What is to follow the dropping of some 6000 unwed mothers with 22000 children from Louisianas relief rolls will be closely followed by officials of other states in which taxpayers have agitated for similar action About one third of the state legislatures have considered measures to exclude illegiti mate the sec ond child or subsequent children born out of bene fits of the federalstate Aid to Dependent Children program But until Louisiana put its new law into effect this month no state had been willing to chal lenge the Social Security Admin istrations warning that en forcement of such legislation might result in loss of the full 60 per cent federal contribution to dependent children programs FEDERAL OFFICIALS have been moving cautiously to avoid causing hardship to all 103000 Louisiana families with dependent children Unless Loui siana moderates its porgram however they see no avoidance of an early call upon the state to show cause in public hearings why the federal payments should not be suspended A paragraph in a recent re port to the Senate Appropria tions Committee indicates the present position of the Social Security Administration The administration believes that le gal authority would take the view that state law discriminat ing between first and subse quent illegitimates contravenes the right of persons to equal protection of the laws guaran teed by the 14th amendment to the U S Constitution in that it establishes an unreasona b 1 e state plan of classification WHEN THE Georgia legisla ture sought in 1951 to curb il legitimacy by the method now being attempted in Louisiana the attorney general of the state held the measure to be in con flict with the state as well as the federal Constitution Several states presently have laws which call for denial or re lief payments if a childs home is unsuitable with illegitima cy considered prima facie evi d e n c e of unsuitability But actual enforcement has been found to result in institutionali zation of the children at heavy expense when payments are cut off THE TAX foundation report ed that payments under the Aid to Dependent Children program totaled last year and that more than 20 per cent of the families receiving aid had one or more illegitimate chil dren Total cost of the ADC program back in 1950 was 697000 Meanwhile the upward trend in the number of illegitimate births continues Well over twice as many babies were born out of wedlock in 1958 latest year for which full data are avail able as in com pared with 89000 However only 135 per cent of the countrys il legitimate children under 18 are at present being supported with the aid of federalstate welfare funds The average ADC payment per family is a month which appears to exasperated taxpayers in some parts of the country to be enough to make volume production of babies a profitable enterprise peace how to stop national emergency strikes the state of American prestige and the cost of farm programs It was a smooth program and both sides thought they had won Nixon called the encounter good fastmoving a good clash Kennedy told report ers I thought we touched on important matters that are at issue in the campaign One of their sharpest dis agreements was over defense of Quemoy and Matsu two small islands garrisoned by National China but located within a few miles of the Red Chinese mainland The issue has mushroomed since their second debate a week ago Both agreed the islands should not be yielded under threat of Communist guns But Kennedy who has urged ef forts to get a Chinese Nation alist withdrawal from the islands said Nixon was going further than the Eisenhower administration in advocating defense of them Nixon contended that with drawal would damage this country in the eyes of Asia and said Kennedys position would encourage the Reds to push to the point where war is inevitable That brought a Kennedy charge that Nixori was distort ing the record The issue of Kennedys Roman Catholic religion was brought into the debate for the first time A reporter quoted Rep Adam Clayton Powell New York Negro con gressman as saying that The Ku Klux Klan is riding again in this campaign in opposition to Kennedy v The newsman said Gov Michael V DiSalle of Ohio a Roman Catholic was saying much me same thing DiSalle said he was not quoted cor rectly He merely reported he said that the head of the klan had said he would vote for Nixon Kennedy said he had seen a similar report He said he didnt suggest in any way that the vice president has any sympathy with or involvement with the klan That is absurd Kennedy said I dont suggest that I dont support it I would dis agree with it Nixon a Quaker said he welcomed the chance to join Kennedy in repudiating the klan or anybody who uses the religious issue In Tampa Fla W J Grif fin head of the state klan said I dont give a damn

the transcontinental television debate with Vice President Nixon She is standing in the doorway of the room reserved for Kennedy before his ap pearance in the New York television studio Tactics become apparent WASHINGTON three great debates on TV the tac the Vice President Richard M Nixon and Sen John F Kennedy begin to show through Nixon is a generalizer who makes frequent use of that old time debating tactic The big needle When he thinks he has a good thing going he wont let go He gets sentimental and like a namedropper identifies aimself with President Eisen tiower Kennedy who evidently does his homework is much more specific and detailed than Nixon but lets himself lose a lot of time trying to extract the Nixon needle Recently he became quite a needier himself FOR EXAMPLE As TV watchers could see for them selves he had gotten under Nix ons skin by aa earlier remark calling him triggerhappy But Kennedy talks too fast throwing out facts names and dates as if he assumed all the millions of TV viewers were as familiar with these things as he himself is And he seems to lack a dramatic sense Before the campaign ever got under way Nixon told newsmen hed go heavy on generaliza tions light on details He has followed that course For in stance Thursday night instead of going into detail on defense plans he said he would make a major speech about it NIXON USES the needle virt ous ways Byaccusing Kennedy of reversing himself talking one way now and another before of wanting to spend too much of getting facts mixed A spot check of voters across the country indicated that neither has forged ahead on the strength of his showing in three television debates Some viewers had praise for both Nixon and Kennedy Looking at these debates said Howard Hayden a manu facturers
