The Nome Nugget (Newspaper) - May 20, 1963, Nome, AlaskaIke Favors Free For All Contest In Presidential GOP Nomination WASHINGTON — Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower seems to favor a free-for-all con- test for the 1964 Presidential Re- publican nomination. Eisenhower suggested at a Rochester, N.Y., news conference Friday that Gov. George Romney of Michigan and Sen. Thruston B. Morton of Kentucky would make good nominees. This was immediately inter- preted in party ranks here as an indication Eisenhower hasn’t much hankering for either Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona or New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller as the standard bearer. The former President was repre- sented as still in a slow burn over a crack made by Goldwater several weeks ago that “one Eisenhower in a generation is enough.” The general also was said to have found it difficult to forget Rockefeller’s 1960 contention that the nation’s military posture had been allowed to deteriorate. Despite Romeny’s repeated de- nials that he is a candidate or in- tends to become one, Eisenhower said the governor would have to be considered for the 1964 nomi- nation if he “does a good job in Michigan.” He denied, however, mat he was promoting Romney for the nomi- nation. He said anyone who said that “is just completely off his rocker.” Noting that Rockefeller and others are possibilities Eisenhower added: “There is another possiblity I hear being mentioned more — Sen. Thruston Morton, a very able man from Kentucky.” Morton, former GOP National Chairman and now head of the party’s Senatorial Campaign Com- mittee, came up quickly with a disvowal of any such ambitions. “I think it’s just a lot of talk and nothing is going to come of it,” he said.

Ships in the search fleet had converged on a 300-yard area, a daily summary reported. The hunt has centered about 200 miles east of Cape Cod, in water more than 8,000 feet deep. Referring to the research ship, equipped with deep water cameras and sonar gear, the summary said: “The pictures by Atlantis II show debris dense enough to be the missing submarine but the pictures in themselves are not con- clusive. However, side-looking sonar and other electronic prob- ings of the area bear out the pos- sibility that the debris in the area could be the Thresher.” The job of deciding what the pictures and sonar recordings show is primarily up to Capt. T. A. Andrews, search commander, aboard the destroyer Du Pont. The summary said that “under- water cameras, sonar and other devices will be used in an effort to determine if the debris is the submarine or merely an unusual density of trash in the target area.” FOOTBALL GREAT DIES CLEVELAND, Ohio W — Ernie Davis, 23, a line-smashing All- America halfback at Syracuse University in 1961 and the first Negro ever named college football’s Player of the Year, died in Lake- side Hospital early Saturday.

It is whether to help build up India’s defenses against Commu- nist China at a cost of alienating Pakistan, an ally of the two West- ern powers that fears the weapons might be used against it. India is seeking $1.35 billion in foreign military aid, primarily from the United States. Britain Canada and Australia. The help is wanted over the next few years to double India’s army to more than a million men, mod- ernize its air force and strengthen the navy. Washington and London had hoped for settlement of the Kash- mir dispute before having to de- cide on undertaking a long-term military aid program for India. Settlement would have avoided antagonizing Pakistan and elimin- ated the danger of dissipating In- dian efforts in the bitter quarrel with Pakistan. But there is no prospect of a settlement, in the opinion of ex- perienced observers. India’s Minister of Economic and Defense Coordination is in Washington and is going later to London with a armaments shop- ping list. He wants $576 million for the Indian air force, $425 million for the army and navy and $350 mil- lion for defense production. The bulk of this would have to come from the United States and the Commonwealth, but some might be sought from other coun- tries as a non-military support aid. Washington, London, Ottawa and Canberra are now delivering $120 million worth of weapons. This emergency aid began shortly after the Chinese Communists smashed through the Indian army in the Himalayas last October and No- vember. The amount of further aid need- ed since the voluntary Chinese withdrawal depends upon evalua- tion of the continuing Chinese threat to India. New Delhi sees a grave threat. Pakistan says there is no threat. Washington thinks there is a need to build up India as a solid block to China’s designs on Southern Asia. Indian officials are counting on American hostility toward China to outweigh worries about Pakis- tan’s feelings. Some American policy makers think Pakistan must stick with the West, unhappily or not. Since 1955 Pakistan has received from the United States about $1.25 billion worth of arms and defense support, almost as much as India is now seeking over a shorter period. Now that no settlement is in sight the West has to decide how far to go ahead anyway. Years during which V. A. Krish- na Menon irritated the Americans while Pakistan learned the fine art of influencing Congress may now come home to roost on India. Pakistan can be expected to use whatever influence it has in Wash- ington to argue against arms for India. The U.S. government says that a basket of groceries that cost $10.16 in 1952 costs only about $9.80 today. The average family spends slightly less than 20 per cent of its income for food, the lowest figure in our history. Arctic Sanitary Service CALL 2631 ANYTIME FOR PICKUP Office Open Daily 4-6 {un. 13,996,353 Hunting License Purchased in 1962 WASHINGTON (*> — The In- terior Department reported Sat- urday a total of 13,996,353 indi- vidual purchases of hunting li- censes were made during 1962 in 49 states. Though the department did not receive data from Colorado on the number of paid hunting license holders, it did receive from all 50 states a complete count on the total number of licenses, tags, stamps, and permits issued — 18,175,396 — and the amount paid for them, $63,983,798. The cost was $78,984 less than in 1961. Figures on the number of paid license holders are used as a basis for distributing federal aid funds for wildlife restoration projects. The 1961 total was 11,798,890, with four states not supplying data. Michigan reported more paid hunting license holders than any other state, 1,086,506, and the high- est gross cost to hunters for all kinds of licenses and permits, $4,528,228. Pennsylvania was sec- ond high in both, with 918,527 holders and $4,253,715 cost. California led in total licenses, permits, tags and stamps issued, 1,302,125, and the cost of them was $3,721,881. Hailstorm Kills 7,000 Turkeys STONEWALL, Man. W — A sud- den hailstorm killed an estimated 7,000 turkeys on a farm near Stone- wall Friday. Mrs. Henrietta Salkeld told re- porters she and her husband, Le- land, were at their hatchery busi- 1 ness in Winnipeg and were noti- fied by telephone of the storm.

He lashed the Chinese Communists ar Troskyite war seekers. Evidently referring to July talks in Moscow betwen the Red Chinese and Soviet party leaders on their ideological dispute, he declared, “any compromise or unprincipled agreement at the expense of others would do great harm to the work- ing class movement in general.” In his capacity as secretary-gen- eral of the Yugoslav Communist party, Tito delivered a long report on the country’s attitude toward current world problems to the party’s Central Committee. Sonic Boom Backfires KALAMAZOO, Mich. UP> — An Air Force publicity stunt herald- ing the opening of an Armed Forces Day celebration in Battle Creek, 25 miles away, apparently backfired in Kalamazoo. An F-106 Delta Dart flying at 45,000 feet created a sonic boom Friday to demonstrate, according to an Air Force spokesman, that “not all sonic booms are destruc- tive.” The sonic boom was barely heard in Battle Creek, where the Armed Forces Day ceremonies were being staged, but in Kalama- zoo it shattered at least one plate glass window in a downtown flower shop and sent Kalamazoo residents scurrying from their homes.
