Red's newer headquarters re-
flected ,a more sober atmosphere
than his old joint. At Christ-
mas, he still hung mistletoe from
a pulley over the counter and
smacked unsuspecting coeds.
But his new counter was longer,
more impersonal than the one
in the original rite spot, and
people tucked in booths on the
other side of the restaurant
never knew what was happen-
ing at the counter.
The new spot even had one of
those concave, or convex, mir-
rors so Red could keep tabs on
all his silverware.
The postcards and newspaper
clippings Red used to paste off-
handedly on the wall of his Wil-
liam Street short order house
were arranged in frames by the
Forsythe Gallery and hung
properly on the walls of his new
establishment, or pinned neatly
to tie billetin board across from
the casb register that makes its
own change.
Now 'Red is cramming all his
souvenirs in paper bags for the
trip south. He is taking the door
and part of the awning from
his original rite spot which he
has reverently pteserved in his
business office downstairs. He
has removed the mousetraps,
from .behind the intriguing slit
in the storage cabinet through
which new employes stre'tched
curious, naive fingers.
Now Red, the curator, gives
tours of his dismantled place to
friends who return to offer
condolences. He proudly displays
his still spotless kitchen and
rest rooms. He basks in the fare-
well poster stretched across his
front window by a flock of Couz..
ens customers.
Now he's leaving; with no bit-
terness. He twists his prize-
fighter's mug with a sheepish
grin and says "That's life."


Wallace in Denver

Humphirey *"
NEW YORK (R) -- Hubert H.
Humphrey pledged yesterday thatt
as president he would propose ai
10-fold increase in federal funds
to fight crime, violence and dis-1
Humphrey also accused his Re-
publican opponent, Richard M.1
Nixon, of fooling himself and the
public in his, crime proposals.
Humphrey, in a televised speech
advertisqd as a major policy pro-i
nouncement on law and order,
noted widespread concern aboutt
rising crime rates, riots and dis-"
orders, saying:
"I know you are distressed and]
outraged by the riots and disorders
in many of our cities, and so am

"Americans don't want a national
police force" which he said could

won't have a police state-if I am
your president."I
Humphrey came down hard on
law and order in his prepared1
speech- ,]
The first obligation of govern-i
ment, said Humphrey, is "to. pro-c
vide for the safety of every Amer-,
ican in his home and neighbor-;

"Grabbing guns, throwing fire-,
bombs, cynically discrediting1

SALT LAKE CITY (P) -- George
C. Wallace told a capacity aud-
ienee at the Mormon Tabernacle
yesterday people should work for
what they get.
He brought the crowd of more
than 10,000 to their feet several
times with pledges to return do-
mestic institutions to local con-
trol and a, call for a military
settlement in Vietnam if the Paris
peace talks fail.
Wallace's audience at Salt Lake
City was slightly smaller than
those drawn by Republican Rich-
ard Nixon or Democrat Hubert
Humphrey, but crowd response£
was more favorable and lively.
The third-party candidate called
his appearance at the Mormon
Tabernacle "the high point of my
political career, "to be able to!
speak here and hear the Taber-
nacle' Choir."'
During a brief meeting with off-
ficials of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mor-
monsi, Wallace was introduced by
Ezra Taft Benson, former secre-
tary of agriculture and a msmber
of the church's Council of Twelve
Benson confirmed his support
for Wallace,~ adding he was not
actively campaigning for the for-
mer Alabama governor. Benson
had been mentioned as a running
mate for Wallace before he selegt-
ed Gen. Curtis LeMay.

ment that the Democratic admin-
istration "has talked tough and

Nixon, who is staying here at
the home of Sen, George Smath-
ers, (D-Fla.), did not spell out
precisely how he would deal dif*
ferently with Cuba. He simply
promised that "a new administra-
tion will bring into office a new
awareness of the continuing prob-
lem to ourself."
More than half a dozen of'
Nixon's top lieutenants flew here
from New York to join 'him in
weekend meetings that will pro-
duce the blueprint for the final
weeks of the GOP canmipaign.

through violence to destroy the
governments of this hemisphere,
operating on the theory ,that . . .
we will not take stern measures
against him."

For years, the people in our cities have
been promised help. For years, billions have
been spent... but the problems still exist.
Congressman Marv Esch knows that today's
urban problems will not be solved with 1930
programs. Washington spending alone will
not do the job. He knows that violence is not
the answer either. And that such must be
met with the necessary restraint.
Marv Esch says, "The urban crisis calls
for a total community effort. We need the
full mobilization of all sectors ... public and
private. Only then can we offer a helping
hand, rather than a handout. Only then can
we have less on welfare, rather than more."

The people know the danger, of empty
promises. Our cities need action. More words
only compound the problem.
Congressman Esch has been an action
man on the Education and Labor Committee
... .objectively striving to make anti-poverty
programs work and to eliminate or revise
those that don't. He has offered new direc-
tions for urban education .. . improved job
training programs ... a bill to promote home
ownership for the poor... better vocational
educatiorr... and a war against hunger. New
programs... involviog the total community
... getting at the root problems of housing,
education and jobs.

Newsweek Magazine described
Esch after his first nine months
in office as "...an articulate
Michigan Ph.D.... a prototype
of the new young GOP breed,
sensitive to the problems
of the cities and the slums."
Combating urban unrest is
a prime concern of your
Congressman. He warns "It's
time we overcome the
problems of our cities,
before they
overcome us."
