party candidates ought to be em-
barrassed that he was not invited to
debate with them next week.
"I GREW UP on a farm and I know
ou need boots for things besides stom-

audience in Waco, Texas.
"Republicans have a habit of
spreading a lot of horse manure around
right before an election, and lately, as

Carter ridiculed what he termed
Reagan's secret plan for release of the

that Richard Nixon-"one of the great

Anderson, in Washington before set-

hopes the hostages are freed im-
mediately no matter what political
benefit that might bring to Carter.
He complained bitterly about being
excluded from next Tuesday's debate
between Carter and Reagan.
"They both should be embarrassed,"
the Illinois congressman said, because
they view debates merely as a political
