Nixon rally Thursday in Roseville
Many Auburn area residents will attend a rally in Roseville today, Thursday, when Richard Nixon, Republican nominee for governor, will deliver a major political address. Many of them will join a cavalcade of banner-bedecked autos which will leave Republican headquarters in Central Square at 11 o’ clock.
Final plans for the Win With Nixon Rally were made in Roseville Tuesday night at a committee meeting which was attended by Joe Hughes, chairman of the Placer County Republican Central Committee; Mrs. Inez Robie of the Auburn Republican Women’s Club, and Bud Felter of the Auburn Republican Men.
… Color will be added to the event by 15 costumed Nixonettes, including Mesdames Rud Felter, Larry Platz, Delbert Nagel, Jean Asta, Alfred Bruck and Howard Osmer, all of Auburn.

Sheriff neutral
Sheriff William A. Scott Wednesday issued a statement that he is not supporting any candidate for state office at the election next Tuesday.
“I want to emphasize that the office of sheriff is nonpartisan,” he said, “and I am not supporting any partisan candidate.”
Nuclear attack anywhere in world would mean evacuation of schools
“In case of a nuclear attack, all students of the Auburn Union School District will be evacuated to their homes,” said a release from the Superintendent of Schools office to parents issued today.
Superintendent of Schools James R. Jordan said the release has been given to the students to take home with them either yesterday or today.
Jordan also said he has been conferring with Civil Defense Director Dean Pratt on the possibilities of “designated areas” mentioned in the release.
Two possibilities discussed are an abandoned railroad tunnel belonging to the Southern Pacific Company and a mine located about six miles from Auburn in El Dorado County.
Both locations would serve as adequate shelter if they could be agreed upon ahead of time by the owners and county officials, Jordan said.

Auburn homeowners have $10 million equity
Residents of Auburn have a huge amount of money invested in their homes.
Their equity in these dwellings, representing market value minus outstanding mortgage debt, comes to a healthy $10,777,000.
This refers solely to non-farm dwellings which are occupied in whole or in part by their owners.
Locally and elsewhere across the country, Americans have built up vast assets for themselves over the years by acquiring their own homes.
The facts and figures come from the recent Census of Housing and from studies made by the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center.
In Auburn, there were 1,170 such homeowner dwellings, some new and some old, listed as of 1960. Their value, based on the median asking price, is placed at $15,100 per unit.

Screening times are announced in the regular theatre ad in today’s Auburn Journal.
