night sang poetic praise to Indiana senator arid Democrat
ic presidential candidate Birch Bayh, who was in Lincoln

the bathroom together," he said. v

callous notion of the Nixon and Ford Administrations
that America can stop higher food and fuel prices by
throwing human beings out of work." .
"Two Republican Administrations following deliber-,
ate policy of planned unemployment as the primary
weapon in the fight against Inflation, hive led us through
two recessions and a record inflation," Bay h said.
"Only genius for JneptitudV'iould have produced re- '
cession and inflation together," he added.. "And only an
administration insensitive to hurasn hardship, could con-"
tinut to tolerate both." ---. v, .!
Bayh said his lata entry into the Democratic presiden
tial race hasn't seemed to hart his campaign contributions.
Ha said he has raised mors money in a short teas than
sane candidates have raised in a year.
