Y. Times News Service . ; CHICAGO, Aug. 14 AdIai Stevenson's bandwagon appeared to be picking up speed tonight and indications were that only a major blunder could block his nomination for the presidency by the Democratic national convention, probably on an early ballot. And this despite a blast earlier in the evening by Harry S. Truman, who said the former Illinois governor was "too defeatist" to wrest the presidency from Dwight Eisenhower in November. The signs. were that states . . Rayburn Hits GOP On Its "Failures" U. 5. Sits On Volcano As Officials Dally, Speaker Asserts CHICAGO, Aug. 14 (AP) House Speaker Sam Ray-burn tonight, accused President Eisenhower and his Republican administration of "mishandling" this country'! foreign affairs in "the most perilous times in world history." Mr, Rayburn lit into President Eisenhower directly, accusing- him of "passing the buck" to subordinates for alleged failures at homo and abroad. Raking the GOP leadership for what he called its "still-born policy of massive retaliation," Mr. Rayburn said this is a policy which "involves the taking of the most serious risks with the lives and fortunes and honor of the American people." f$ l., r ou vie' 8 a S . fey like Michigan and New Jersey, with big blocs of votes not previously listed as in the Stevenson column, were ready to go for him, perhaps on the first ballot. Another boon to the Stevenson camp came from Southerners, who said the proposed civil-rights plank in the platform to be submitted to the delegates tomorrow sounded acceptable to them and meant a probable end to the cautious neutrality policy which several delegates from Dixie had adopted. SHIFT OF TACTICS Former President Truman's earlier attack amounted to ivi open declaration of war against Mr. Stevenson and a desperate llth-hour effort to prevent his nomination. It represented a shift In tactics from Mr. Truman's previous stand that he would endorse Gov. Averell Harriman of New York as the best qualified candidate, but refrain from any public, mention or criticism of other aspirants-Mr. Truman's attack, whit is expected to be amplified at a news conference he has called for 10 a. m. tomorrow, served to confirm earlier reports that his backing of Mr. Harriman had not shaken the "hard core" of Stevenson support and had not brought the New Yorker within sight of the 686 Yi -vote majority needed for nomination. Angry Stevenson supporters branded Mr. Truman's state MISTER SAM LOOSES BARRAGE AT COP ADMINISTRATION Texas' Sam Rayburn is seen warming up to his attack on the Eisenhower administration after his installation as permanent chairman of the Democratic convention.

'4rSee Story ' Cross -County Road Is Nearer; Cemetery Plat Hurdle Cleared Peaceful Solution Is Goal, Britain's Lloyd Asserts As Delegates Arrive LONDON, Aug. 14 (AP) The Soviet Union was reported scheming tonight to wreck the 22-nation Suez Canal conference at the outset Thursday and substitute a bigger one on Soviet-Egyptian lines. Reports of the Soviet maneuver came from Moscow as Britain's Foreign Secretary Mehvyn Lloyd Insisted in a radio broadcast here that Britain would work for a peaceful solution of the canal control problem. He defended Britain's military how of force as precautionary. Mr. Lloyd spoke shortly after Soviet Foreign Minister Dmitri T. Shepilov arrived and announced that the Issue should be settled by "all the states concerned." Britain, France and the United States invited 24 nations to discuss International control of the canal, whose operating company was nationalized by Egypt's President Gamal Abdcl Nasser. Greece and Egypt refused to attend. REDS, EGYPT AGREE Tne Soviet Union, in Its qualified acceptance of the invitation last week proposed that 45 countries be invited to a parley. The list included all the European Communist countries and all the Arab nations. Egypt's President Nasser, in rejecting the Western bid Sunday, also said that about 45 countries, including all those that regularly used the canal, should be included in any Suez conference. Moscow sources said Mr. Shepilov planned at the opening of the conference Thursday to move for adjournment and a meeting somewhere else In the larger form suggested by President Nasser. Mr. Shepilow was reported ready to announce that Russia would refuse to abide "by decisions made in London on the ground that the conference was not competent to act without Egypt. India's attitude toward the London conference also figured in the maneuvering. Although India said it would attend, the reaction in New Delhi was that a conference without Egypt "was like a wedding without a bride." OIL POOL PLANNED In Washington, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and nine advisers took off for the meeting and Secretary Dulles' first dealings with the new Soviet foreign minister. The United States also announced an emergency oil pool plan to supply the West with oil if Suez shipping is halted. Mr. Lloyd spoke against a background of criticism at home and abroad of Britain's show of force. He said Britain would work with all its power for a peaceful solution of the canal dispute. But he asserted that any such, solution must include some form of international control. The Foreign Minister disclosed that Parliament would be called back to discuss the outcome of the talks.

Seventh St., was killed late yesterday when an auto- The veteran House leader from Texas also flailed the administration's farm, labor, social welfare and business policies in a speech marking his installation as permanent chairman of the Democratic national convention. . Declaring he sensed a "singular lack of interest" in foreign affairs among the people, Mr. Rayburn set out to stir some up. "We sit on a seething volcano," he said, "while the White House and State Department have still to produce a single new effective contribution toward world peace." PLAYED DANGEROUS GAME -The Eisenhower administration, Mr. Rayburn said, has "played the dangerous game of tenuous military alliances" and "stamped fear upon our friends by its heavy overemphasis on instruments of arms rather than Instruments of peace." "The problems of the world are not going to be solved by bluffing, or by diplomatic tricks, or by public rebuffs to leaders we need as allies in, the world today," he said. "What is required is patience and slow and painful negotiation toward carefully thought-out objectives. What is needed is a return to the policies which a few short years ago had made America the leader of the free peoples." Mr. Rayburn, asserting he felt a spirit of unity and victory in the air here, said, "Only the Democratic party has the courage and the experience to restore this Republic once again to its rightful place in world affairs." "The Republican Secretary ef State seems proud of the fact," he said, "that on at least three occasions that we know about, he has taken this country to the brink of war, without the knowledge or consent of the Congress and the people." Mr. Rayburn said, "The end result of four years of Republican mishandling of our foreign affairs is such that we have fewer friends than ever before, and we have made enemies of many that were our friends and wellwishers. . BUCK-PASSING CHARGED "The facts are, of course," he added, "that the man primarily responsible under our Constitution for the conduct of foreign policy, simply is not handling the job." Turning to domestic affairs, Rayburn asserted: "Under P-esident Eisenhower, we have an administration that has developed the classic Army buck-passing game to new heights. "When somebody is caught giving away our natural resources, the blame falls on the Secretary of the Interior. When fraud is discovered in a Dixon-Yates dam project, the fault is laid to the Bureau of the Budget. When inflation follows deflation because of manipulating interest rates, the responsibility lies with the Treasury. When mergers and consolidations succeed each other in dizzy array the buck is passed to the Justice Department." While not absolving the underlings for "their grievous failures," Mr. Rayburn said he believed in putting the blame "where it really lies," and added: "It belongs on the shoulders of the President of the United States." In scoring administration farm policies, Mr. Rayburn said the Democrats will "fight at every ballot box in the land to prevent the Republicans from making peasants out of our farmers." , Asserting that farm income has dropped almost 55 billion under the present administration, Mr. Rayburn said, "The plain fact is that the Republican party took out of the pockets of each farm family an average of almost $800 a year during the last four years." "Of course, this is a plcayunish amount for a big businessman or a Madison Avenue executive," he said, "but it's the difference between .prosperity and hardship for millions of our farm families." Turning to Republican claims of business orosperitv. L. D. Warren Cartcoai STEVENSON But the attention of the delegates, and of the contenders for the party nomination, was oa the cocky former President, and his increasingly bitter effort to deny renomination to Mr. Stevenson, whom he had backed for the nomination four years ago over the aspirations of Governor Harriman. Committed in advance to support the nominee of this convention, Mr. Truman, in - his own words, said it would do little good if that candidate- is Mr. Stevenson. 7 "He won't carry any more states than he did four years ago," said the former President. In 1952, Mr. Stevenson ried only eight Southern and one border state. They were Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Louisiana, Arkansas, Georgia and West Virginia. Mr. Truman said he found among the pro-Stevenson delegates "the same defeatist tti-tude that all the papers would like to give us." He recalled with displeasure the moderate tone Mr. Stevenson had adopted in accepting the 19j'J nomination, declaring angrih "he should have been taken off the ticket right then." "HE COULD NOT WIN" "That was when I made up my mind he could not win (in 1952)," said Mr. Truman. While Mr. Truman stirred new excitement, he has not yet stirred many delesates to move from Mr. Stevenson toward Governor Harriman. One dungiT to the Stevenson cause, as professional politicians saw it, rested with (lie increasing field of "favorite suns," including Senator Johnson of Texas. The Texan said "no deals" had been offered by or accepted from other presidential aspirants. He kept them guessing about how long lie would push his own candidacy, and whether he would rMi deadlocking the conven-vention In the hope that it would turn to a compromise choice, such as Sen.

"I think the delegates have definitely decided that Governor Stevenson is their one hope of defeating (President) Eisenhower this year and they will vote for him," said James A, Finnegan, manager of the Stevenson campaign. RAYBURN IS INSTALLED Thus, once again, from his offstage position in the Sheraton-Blackstone Hotel's presidential suite, former President Truman captured for a time the spotlight and headlines from the regular business of the party convention in its second day. Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas, who has presided over the House of Representatives as permanent chairman longer than any man in history, was installed as permanent chairman. He charged that "under President Eisenhower, we have an administration that has developed the classic Army buck-passing game to new heights." The convention markel time with other partisan oratory while it waited for the platform writers to resolve their quarrels and bring a 1956 electoral manifesto before the delegates at tomorrow right's session. Other speakers included Sen. Wayne L. Morse of Oregon, originally elected as a Republican but who shifted his support from Mr. Eisenhower to the Democrats early in the 1932 campaign. The Oregonian accused the Eisenhower administration of "dragging its' feet' on aid to education and of sacrificing natural resources "in its willingness to serve the limited ends of special interest groups.'1 Senator Morse is up for reelection this year, and his appearance tonight was calculated to help him in a tough fight with Douglas McKay, the former Secretary of Interior, who resigned from the Cabinet to make the Senate race for the Republicans. O turfitCHwiet 7 OtNIR.L UIA lo:ation This map of the proposed Hamilton County circumferential highway, and its connections with Cincinnati's expressways and the North-South Turnpike, was included in a completed preliminary engineering report submitted to the county engineer and county commissioners yesterday. Construction plans for a key four-mile segment of the belt highway, from Montgomery Road to Springfield Pike, are being drawn by Vogt, Ivers, Seaman & Associates, architects. of willingness to co-operate in Mr. Rayburn said, "Thousands of independent small merchants have gone to the wall." On labor, he said, "The Republican party has not changed its attitutde toward labor in 100 years." In the two decades of Democratic administrations prior to 1952, Mr. Rayburn said his party had enacted "the first legislative steps toward a decent life for the average man and woman."

Patrolman ' J 1 1 QQ .tetter both because he is a Texan and because he suffered a serious heart attack last year. ; . There were new reports of efforts for "favorite son" candidacies in Georgia, Virginia and Arkansas, in all of which Mr. Stevenson has strong backing. This might, however, be only a maneuver to enforce pressure on the platform committee, dominated by Stevenson supporters, to produce a plank acceptable to the vast bulk of Southern delegates. Federal government could do so only by providing new and like facilities for the cemetery owners. Mr. Lemmel said the highway's proposed route would split off IS acres for the road right of way alone, and would separate another 17 cres from the remainder of the cemetery. Donald Rolf, commissioner, issued this statement: "The archbishop's expression Trio Die, One Hurt In Crash At Berea BEREA, Ky., Aug., 14 (AP) Three persons were killed and one critically injured today in the collision of two automobiles on wet pavement on U. S. 25 near here, police reported. The dead were identified as : ' Mrs. Hazel B. Pfister, 35, Toledo, Ohio. Arlie Elmer Whaley, 47, R. R. 9, Scviervillc, Tenn. Floyd Malcom McCoig, 25, R. Pv. 4, Dandridge, Tenn. Injured was Norman S. Pfister. 54, Mrs. Pfister's husband. Madison County Coroner Russell Turpin said Pfister was taken in an unconscious condition to St. Joseph Hospital, Lexington. A difficult hurdle in the path of the county's circumferential highway was sidestepped yesterday.- Archbishop Karl J. Alter said he had agreed to provide a right of way through Gate of Heaven Cemetery, which straddles the belt highway route. The cemetery is on Montgomery Road a short distance northeast of Montgomery. Another forward step taken yesterday: Vogt, Ivers, Seaman & Associates, Cincinnati architects, submitted to commissioners and the county engineer the complete preliminary engineering report for the 22-mile cross-county highway. Construction plans for a key four-mile segment of the highway, from Montgomery Road to Springfield Pike, already are being prepared. "I recognize the great importance of this highway," Archbishop Alter told The En-, quirer. "I have become familiar with the road network in my visits to the archdiocese's 109 parishes in Hamilton County, and I have found that it is very difficult to get from east to west." George Lemmel, county engineer, who conferred with he archbishop Sunday, noted that neither . the county nor the state could appropriate cemetery property, and that the expediting the highway is gratifying. It will make possible accomplishment of the circumferential highway at a. much earlier date. "Generally, the co-operation of all property owners has been good. Many industrial officials are planning new developments in the area of the highway, and they have told us they will keep their land open, so as rot to interfere with rights of way." Mr. Rolf said the preliminary engineering report came in a "veiy timely period." He said the State Highway Department and the Bureau of Public Roads had shown a "high degree of interest" in the belt highway project. "1 have g;ood reason to believe," he added, "that a portion of the highway will be earmarked for early construction." The commissioner, who as a state senator introduced legislation for the $500 million state highway program, added: "I am willing to say that it is an outside possibility that actual construction on the circumferential highway could begin in the latter part of 1957." The construction plan contract for the four-mile leg of the limited-access highway was let June 18. It was based on an engineering fee of 3.1 per cent of the total project cost, estimated at 54 milllion. Richard Bowman said the automobile rammed the pole head-on, "tossing wires all over the place." Will Montgomery, 47, 500 West Seventh St., told the officer he had driven the automobile to Bridgetown, and Mrs. Warmack was driving back when the accident occurred about 3 p. m. near Martin's Trailer Park, 5553 Glenway Ave. He was taken to Gerteral Hospital for treat mnt of a severe right arm cut. Mrs. Warmack was thrown from the car. She was listed as Hamilton County's 44th traffic fatality of the year by the rffice of Coroner Herbert P. Lyle. There were 57 through August 11 of last year.

James Slusser, 7, who fell headlong into the three-fcet-deep creek, was pulled from the water by George Lutjen III, who applied artificial respiration while his companions called police.
