In • n ncrk-and-nee.k three-way Democratic race, Senator Kefauver hpld n lead ovpr Senator Kprr with President Truman a close third, Ihe survey showed. Since Trumon is not on the ballot, and Korr Is running as his ntnnd-ln, the combined Kerr-Truman * e n ti m e n t could mean that Kerr would outrun Kefauver Tuesday. Among Republicans with a preference, the estimated popularity percentage shaped up like this; | Eisenhower 42 percent, Taft 39, ; MncArthur 8, Stassen 7. Gov. | Warren, Senator Dirksen (R-I11 ) I and Gov. Dewey were among those gelling scattered mention. Kefauver Clots Nod Among Democrats with a choice, Kefauver got the nod from 34 percent, Kerr from 33 and Truman from 30. Gov. Stevenson of Illinois, Senator Russell of Georgia and Senator Douglas of Illinois received minor men)ion. Significantly, about one-fifth of} Ihe Republicans and one-fourth of the Democrats were pictured as i undecided. Also, there was con-1 sldprnble evidence of shifting sen- ' lirnpnt ns primary-day approached, i Write-in voles are pprmltted In Nebraska, and supporters of both Taft nnd Eisenhower arc becoming more and more active In hopes lhat the "write-In" fever from Minnesota is catching.

As- soeiafed Press surveys, however, have shown n predominance of Tafl backers among Ihe GOP delegate candidates, and Kerr-Trurnan backers among the Democrats. 23 Contributing to thp Nebraska survey were 11 daily nnd 12 weekly or semi-weekly npwspapers, plus eight selected long-time community news rpportprs. They represented areas embracing well over half of Ihe slate's voters. None of Ihe newspapers made strong claims for the accuracy of Ihe sounds. As one editor put. it, newspapers "learned their lesson in 1948" (The year Truman exploded most pre-election polls by defeating Governor Dewey I. Most of the participating papers have withheld formal endorsement of nny candidate. Two have endorsed Eisenhower and another said it planned to hack him hut had not yet. made it official. OIIP weekly said it was for Mat-Arthur "in an inrlefiimile way." Slassen has won the last two Republican presidential preference primaries in Nebraska, in .19-18, Dewey ranked second and Taft third. In .1944. Stassen got nearly I twice as many voles as Dewey and the late Wendell !>. Willkie combined. All major elective stale offices in Nebraska are held by Republicans.

"Some slight progress" w«s| niHili' Iwh/rt'l Hie screen of n news hliirkoiii, Brig. Gpn. William P. Ntjrkols said, "but they have not gottpn down lo brass tacks." Simultaneously he disclosed a chanKP in thp UN command strat- pj?y on Ihe key to thp deadlock. The Allies have rephrased their demand from "voluntary repatriation" of prisoners to "no forced repatriation." "There is no fundamental difference in the two concepts", Ntickols said, but the new term might "he more palatable to the enemy." The Communists have beon insisting they want all prisoners returned, Nuckols' disclosure came after a second group of staff officers cleared the decks for tackling the sole key issue remaining before it -whether Russia should help su- pcrvisrf the truce. The last of the minor problems WHS cleaned up, a UN command communique said, when the staff committee reached "complete agreement on the ports of entry question." The Allies then tried to solve the key Issue by proposing again that Russia and Norway be dropped from Ihe list of six "neutral nations" who will police the armistice. But tho Communists insisted on Including Soviet. Russia. Two other deadlocks stand in the way of a truce: (1) Whether the Reds will be. allowed to repair their bomb-shattered airfields and I (2) Whether prisoners of war will have a choice of going home.

Transplanted Glands Prove New Cure-All Nf:W HAVKX. Conn., March 36 ,T One of the great potential revolutions in medical science was disclosed today. Three sick men nnd women have been given glands transplanted from very premature babies lo turn out hormones for new health. It is an ama/ing and promising experiment in giving humans new spare parts. It may lead to many new methods of treating a variety j of diseases. Little pieces of glands were taken trom unborn babies and put into stomach muscles of two men j and n woman. The men got ad- i ! renal glands because their own I ! adrenals had slopped making hormones, including cortisone. The j ; woman got a thyroid gland, after i her own sick thyroid was removed. Animal tests indicate- the new i gland bits will slay alive, grow, i and make hormones. It is still too early to (ell about the humans. If it works for them, hum,ins someday may gel new glands to' i control diabetes without insulin, i ; a gland hormone; to replace .sex' i glands, lo control thyroid diseases, < i even perhaps control some kinds' jot cancer. New glands might come j trom animals as well as humans. Humans might be able to replace wornout or lost sex glands, realizing the monkey gland experiments J30 years ago of the late Dr. Serge Voronoff. j I Human or animal bodies might j ! supply successful transplants of j | nerves or blood vessels or olhei j I i-pa re parts thai would take root i 'and stay alive or grow. ; I The big secret is using embryonic i ! tissue—glands or other parts from I very young, unborn human. Only embryonic tissue and some cancer tissue can be transplanted and stay alive in another body, Mrs. Bertie Mrhilos To Open Sowing School ! Mrs. Bertie Mehilos is announcing in this evening's issue of the Telegraph the opening of a new- institute of sewing, Ihe Chic and Charm Institute, upstairs at 14 West Broadway Thursday.

Danvers police chief Raymond Kirvvln said law officers "can't find a soul" who saw the money taken yesterday from the truck as It stood unguarded outside a drug- slorp. Its crew was having coffee. Three bandits, in a quick and obviously well-planned job, parked a stolen 1950 Buick sedan alongside the truck, entered it without apparent difficulty and made off in a burst of speed down Danvers> main street. "The FBI has combed both sides of the street", said Chief Kirwin, "checking people who were in stores, but no one was found who saw it." The possibility was not ruled out that some eyewitness hesitated to come forth with information in fear of reprisals—like the killing in Brooklyn of Arnold Schuster after he "fingered" Willie Sutton. now on trial for bank robbery. The truck driver and his two guards were questioned until far into the night by FBI agents and state police before being permitted to go to their homes.

An official of the United States Trucking Co., which owns the armored car set the exact amount of loot last night, correcting an earlier estimate of $600,000. How much the bandits left behind was not known definitely early today but estimates ranged from $100,000 to nearly a million dollars. It was the biggest armored car robbery in U. S. history. The previous largest robbery of an armored car was the $427,000 holdup of a Rubel Ice Co., payroll in Brooklyn, N. Y., on Aug. 21, 1943. It is also believed to be the second largest cash haul in U. S. criminal history—surpassed only by the still-unsolved $1,219,000 robbery of the Brinks' armored car headquarters in Boston 26 months ago.
