Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 24, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edittd MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The VOL 98 Associated tad United Presi International Full Lease Wires newspaper that makes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24 1960 neighbors 7o a Copy Paper Consists of Two Ons No 291 ring crisis for UN assembly Kennedy and Nixon to debate Fireworks not likely By WILLIAM DICKINSON JR GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau first in a series of four nationally broad cast TVradio confrontations be tween John F Kennedy and Richard M Nixon is scheduled for Monday night from CST Viewers who expect a free swinging verbal battle between Sen Kennedy and Vice Presi dent Nixon in their initial face toface television appearance are likely to be disappointed The widely heralded great de bate between the two presi dential aspirants will not of course be entirely lacking in forensic fireworks But the ground rules negotiated by the candidates aides with all the care of a nuclear weapons treaty practically guarantee that no real discussion or inter play of ideas between the two men will result If the candidates carry on ac cording to plan this is what will take place THE FIRST 16 minutes of the 60minute program wil be given over to opening statements eight minutes per man Then five news media representa tives will alternate in asking questions of the candidates in a kind of glorified news confer ence When Vice President Nixon is being examined he will have two and a half minutes to reply to each question Then Sen Ken nedy will have one and a half minutes to comment on the reply and vice versa Closing summaries of three or four minutes each will bring the so called debate to a close One critic of the agreed pro cedure estimates that not more than eight replies and com ments will be possible in the al lotted time This format will be followed in both the Sept 26 debate on domestic issues and the debate of Oct 21 on foreign policy An Oct 7 joint appearance and an other on Oct 13 will be even less likely to generate serious discussion because the two an tagonists are expected to be in different cities They will be brought together electronically on a split screen to answer questions put to them by an other team of newsmen DESPITE THE limitations both candidates hope to make big gains in wooing a potential TVradio audience of 70 million to 100 million persons Nixon expects his prowess in debating to bring him many converts while Kennedy views the de bates as an opportunity to pro ject the presidential image his critics say he lacks The vice president a serene figure before the microphone and TV camera is conceded the edge in technique When he first ran for Congress back in 1946 against Rep Jerry Voorhis DCalif he joined his opponent in a series of five debates Those debates finished Voor his and made Nixon wrote William Costello in his unsym pathetic biography of the vice president Now the total impact made by the presidential can didates on television may well decide the outcome of the Nov ember election IN ADDITION to the obvious risk of a serious misstep in the coming debates some authori ties on broadcasting believe the candidates run the risk of over exposure on the television screen Neither seems to have heeded the advice as witness recent or forthcoming appearances on the Jack Paar Show Person to Person Presidential Count down Focus on Issues Campaign Roundup and Meet the Press Party man agers have turned thumbs down on invitations to the two to give a sort of civics
