including Vice President Richard M Nixon the potential Republican presidential nominee had around 20 mid 20s By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N J If presidential election were held today and the two front running candidates in each party Vice President Nixon of the GOP and Sen Kennedy of Alassachusetts for the Democrat party were the nominees the race would be close judging by the results of the latest measurement of senti ment Today Nixon holds a very slim two per cent edge over Kennedy THIS IS THE WAY the Prince ton Research Service sees it at this time Nixon 505 Kennedy 485 Undecided 10 Excluding the undecided vote the figures become Nixon 51 Kennedy 49 It must always be k e p t in mind that all public opinion samplings are subject to a mar gin of error of approximately four per cent particularly when the findings are at or near the 50 per cent mark 51 per cent for Nixon 49 per cent for Ken nedy today Three moivths ago on Oct 29 1959 the findings on the same question snowed the fol lowing Nixon 522 per cent Kennedy 478 per cent In other words the race be tween the two front runners i gettinga bit tighter IT MUST BE understood tha todays poll findings reflect only current sentiment and that opin ion can and may change be tween now and November An other survey on the same ques tion already is in the field The actual question usedin the poll Suppose the Presidential were being held to day If John Kennedy were the Democratic candidate and Richard Nixon were the Re publican candidate which one would you like to see win Experienced reporters put the above question to a representa tive crosssection in certain key areas whose past voting be havior has been carefully stud ied and weighted in relation to the nations vote A BETTER IDEA of the meaning of todays vote can be seen when current Kennedy Nixon findings are stacked up alongside the results of the past three presidential elections Iowa Snow spreading over state Tuesday night continuing

lar stole cash and jewelry worth about 31000 from an apartment Tuesday but was not happy He eft behind this note There is not enough money Ill cal again jrged that the administration jack up from its insistence upon ower supports The three guidelines for meet ng the wheat the President described as par ticularly 1 THAT P R I C ESUPPORT levels bei realistically related to whatever policy Congress chooses in respect to production control Eisenhower said it must be recognized that the higher the support the more the farmer must be regimented 2 That price support levels not be so high as to stimulate still more excessive production reduce domestic markets and increase the subsidies required to hold world markets 3 That direct subsidy pro grams for crops in surplus be avoided likewise that the chosen programs not invite larmful counter measures by riends or badly hurt other farm ers in seeking to aid one group Within these three guidelines am constantly ready to ap prove any one or a combination of any constructive proposals isenhower said I will approve egislation which will eliminate production controls or make hem really effective or allow the farmers themselves to choose
