Motor Vessel With 14 Aboard Reported Missing ; Storm Weakens

PANAMA CITY, Fila. Sept. 24 (4)— Hurricane Flossy lashed the northwest Florida resort coast tonight with 100-mile-an-hour force after causing at least four deaths in glancing blows at the Louisiana and Alabama Gulf coasts.

The deadly Flossy struck the mainiand at a newly-<deserted beach area near Fort Walton, 50 miles west of Panama City.

In its wake, the hurricane left floods in Louisiana, strand- ed more than 60 persons in the storm-tossed Gulf of Mexico and was indirectly responsible for the deaths of a pregnant mother and her three children near Tallahassee, Fila.

Local weather officials stressed that the hurricane will not affect this area uniess it swerves sharply—which is very unlikely. Fair and mild weath- er, with some cloudimess, is predicted for Tuesday.)

Nixon Cites ‘Morality’ Of GOP Administration

By Richard L

Bta® Revo

EN ROUTE WITH Sept. 24—Vice President Rich ard M. Nixon did long distance dueling with the op-

position today on the good things in life

Told that Estes Kefauver had referred to him as a new Herbert Hoover for holding out hopes for a four-day work week, Nixon told a Phoenix, Ariz., press conference he re- gretted that Kefauver “has so little faith in the productivity of the American @¢conomy.”

Nixoey said his father worked an 84-hour week 50 years ago, that wages have gone up $50 a month in the last four years and that ‘the four-day week “inevitable in the “not-too far-distant futur he wouldn't predict when) if “we continue to )636rencourage€§6 €6the)=|6economy., rather than saddie it with controls.”

Of Adlai Stevenson « to work for higher 1 pay, id: “We agree our older citizens should enjoy the good life. The Democrats and Vir. Stevenson talk a good game. But their cheapened the dollar so be tween 1942 and 1952 it was as though Congress had passed a law cutting social security pay ments by 40 per cent. A sound Eisenhower dollar means they can plan for the future.”

Gives Pep Talk

Nixon moved into broiling hot Phoenix with his aggres sive handshaking campaign to give a campaign pep talk to a meeting of th Republican State Committee

“Nice grip.” said a voter after getting Nixon's hand “Not like a piece of cold liver ~—If you know what I mean.”

Normally Democratic Ari zona went for Eisenhower and clected a Republican Senator four years ago. Republicans are trying this year to unseat Sen Carl Hayden. who has been in Congress since Arizona was a State. Local observers think he is a good bet to go back to Washington next year and set a congressional longevity rec ord

Such talk seems a “calculated campaign” to divide Americans or a class basis and set one group against another, he said in a speech prepared for deliv- ery at the Rainbow Rendezvous Ff meeting hal!

It becomes more apparent al the time, said Nixon, that Stevenson offers only a “car bon copy of the same type of political demagoguery which characterized the Truman Fair Deal.”

Plugs “Moral Dignity”

Nixon plugged his morality issue hard on dividual, national and level.

“Perhaps most important of all as we take our cause to the people,” he said, “is the fact that the Eisenhower Adminis tration places a high premium upon moral and spiritual dig nity of the individual Ameri can
