Campaign Centers on Quemoy, Matsu

WASHINGTON (P-The presi-
dential campaign centered yester-
day on one issue: Should the Unit-
ed States commit itself to protect
the far away islands of Quemoy
and Matsu front Communist cap-

ocratic nominee, was busy in New

NEW YORK P)--The seaman
who fled Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev's ship, the Baltika,
two days ago won political asylum
in the United States yesterday-
and with it the freedom he sought.
The seaman, Victor Jaanimets,
was allowed to leave the immigra-
tion service offices where he had
been held pending determination
of his status and background.
The decision was announced by
P. A. Esperdy, district director of
the service.
Esperdy said he made the deci-
sion after consulting his superiors
in Washington.
He said that "after checking
sources of information, we have
decided that Mr. Jaanimets is a
bona fide political refugee."
The Internatonal Rescue Com-
mittee has been selected as spon-
sor for Jaanimets to "look after
his welfare and get him settled,"
Esperdy said.
Asked whether a guard would
be provided to protect the seaman
from possible reprisal by Soviet;
agents, Esperdy said:
"Definitely not."
The rescue committee had an-
nounced earlier that it would try
to provide a home and a job for
Jaanimets if asylum were grant-
ed. He wants a job as a machin-

base the United States defense
line in the Far East on those two
islets might suck this country into
a war without the support of world
He reiterated that the tiny is-
lands off the Chinese mainland,
unlike Formosa, are regarded as
strategically indefensible by the
nation's "finest military minds."
Defends Stand
Vice-President Richard M. Nix-
on, the Republican nominee, has
been hitting hard at the theme
that not one inch of free territory
should be handed over to the
Communists. The Vice-President
said that to yield Quemoy and
Matsu would only whet the appe-
tite of the Chinese Reds for the
Nationalist island of Formosa.
Nixon's advisers let it be known
they feel their candidate has hit
on a politcially rich issue in Que-
moy and Matsu and will keep
hammering at it.
The question was raised dur-
ing last week's nationally broad-
cast debate between Kennedy and
Nixon. It seems certain to be
raised again in tonight's show-
alongside another foreign policy
question: Has America's prestige
abroad been shrinking? Nixon says
no. Kennedy says yes.
Debate Disagreement
Meanwhile, Kennedy and Nixon
continued not to see exactly eye-
to-eye on expansion of the TV-
radio debates. Kennedy has agreed
to a suggestion that a fifth be
added to the four debates sched-
uled. But Nixon suggested that
this time be handed over to the
vice presidential candidates and
that the fourth between the presi-
dential candidates be expanded-
from one to two hours.
Rebukes Ike
At a civil rights conference,
Kennedy rebuked President Ei-
senhower without mentioning himt
by name. He said: "There is more!

to the presidency than to let
things drift and then suddenly
call out troops."
This was an obvious reference
to Eisenhower's use of troops to
quell mob resistance to the admis-
sion of Negro students at Central
High School in Little Rock, Ark.,
in 1957.
Addressing the Associated Busi-
n e s s Publications Conference,
Kennedy denounced as "one of
the great political myths of our
time" what he said is the assump-
tion that there is an inevitable
conflict between the business
community and the Democratic
Kennedy pledged that if he is
elected he Will not conduct a busi-
ness administration, nor a labor,
nor a farmer administration. He
said it will seek to serve all Amer-

Party Votes
To Support
Arms Stand
The ruling Conservative Party
yesterday overwhelmingly sup-
ported Britain's independent nu-
clear deterrent and called for a
stronger North Atlantic Alliance.
Endorses Policies
With only one dissenting vote
out of 4,000, the conference en-
dorsed the basic defense and dip-
lomatic policies of Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan's Conservative
The delegates emphatically dis-
sociated themselves from the "ban
the bomb" movement--an emo-
tion-laden campaign aimed at get-
ting Britain to give up its own
atomic and hydrogen weapons.
Point Won .
Advocates of nuclear disarma-
ment won their,/point in the La-
bor Party conference held in the
same Scarborough Hall last week.
But they made no impact at all
on the Conservatives.
As a result of the decisions by
the two party conferences, an odd
three-way split on the nuclear
question now has developed in
the political life of this island na-
Support Need
The Conservatives support the
need for Britain to keep its own
nuclear weapons, The moderate
Laborites, led by opposition lead-
er Hugh Gaitskell, also believe in
an independent British deterrent
with some qualifications.
But the Labor Party's left wing
now is actively campaigning
against possession of the bomb
and against Britain's continued
membership in NATO.
Goldfine Ruled
'Mentally Ill
BOSTON (M) - Federal Judge
George C. Sweeney yesterday rul-
ed industrialist Bernard Goldfine
mentally incompetent to stand
trial on income tax evasion
charges and ordered him commit-

Goldfine, friend of former pres-
idential assistant Sherman Adams,
is accused of evading $791,745 in
personal and corporate taxes.
Judge Sweeney acted after three
court-appointed psychiatrists tes-
tified they found Goldfine suf-
fering from a manic depressive
psychosis with suicidal tendencies.
Goldfine, 70, was ordered com-
mitted to the custody of the at-
torney general until he is able to
stand trial, or some other dispo-
sition is made of the case.
