Stevenson Could Be the Winner By JACK KIJTLKDGE WASHINGTON KV-The nation's 831 presidential electors today formally cast their votes to elect the next chief executive of the United Elates. , Under tne Constitution, (he Elec- loral College has the legal right ^K it wishes to elect Gov. Adlal raievenson, the Democratic presidential candidate— '-OY anyone else. But pollsters would be laking almost no risk in predicting a 442 to 89 victory for Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Thai's the way the states' voters indicated they wanted their electors to vote today when Eisenhower, the Republican candidate, was swept l.;to office by a record 33,927,549 votes to Stevenson's 27,311,316 last Nov. 4. However, most electors are legally free to vote as they please. Few,slates bind electors by law to vote for the candidate who carries the state. Nevertheless, wrong-way electors are extremely rare. Only three out of H.379 electors in the nation's history have vole'd "for others than whoni they", -were commissioned," according'; to a former Eelectoral College president. it Happened in 1348 Latest such case occurred In 1948 when Tennessee went for 'President Trumnn but one of the state's 15 electors 'cast his vote for J.

Long Dies In San Diego Former City Hospital .Manager Succumbs Friends here were notified today of the death of M. A. Long, former manager of Blytheville Hospital. Friday in San Diego. Calif. Mr. Long, who was 05, had suffered two heart attacks prior to his death. It was not known here today when funeral services will be held. Born In Minnesota, Mr. Long came to Blytheville from Klammath Falls. Ore., in 1836 to become manager of Blytheville Hospital. He also was a medical and x-ray technician. After serving as manager of Ihe hospital for seven years, Mr. Long asked to be relieved due lo illness He and his wife moved to Memphis In October. 1043, after Dr. L. L. Hubener leased the hospital from the city. Tlie Longs had resided in San '.ego for the past three years. He Vs survived by his wife, Mrs. Christine Long, He said he returned from his .rip to the war zone with new con- 'Idcnce about the outlook for speed- ng a satisfactory solution. In two public statemenls yes- erday, the general expressed op- limism. At the same time, however, he repeated his view that no simple 'ormula Is at hand, and he said patience, foresight and common iense will • be needed in finding one. Elsenhower gave no Indication when he plans to meet with Qen. Douglas MacArthur. MacArthur declared In a speech in New York. 10 days ago: "I am confident there is .1 clear and definite solullon lo the Korean conflict." Several days later, Elsen- hower messaged MacArthur lhat lie would like to talk with htm and MacArthur replied lhat he would be agreeable. The two generals may meet here this week. The President-elect said on his rturn here yesterday that his trip was a starting point for his own planning. At LaGiiardia Field he said: "Everyone of us thinks we have learned sometrTing to make this expedition a sort of starting pluce from where we are "going to plf-n the programs we are going lo adopt. "Positive Programs" "And we expect Lhem to be positive programs. Because you know, my friends, just because one side wants peace doesn't make peace. We must-go ahead nnd do thing: that induce the others to want peace also." Tills phrase — "do things that induce others to want peace also" — was contained in an extemporaneous statement at the airport Eisenhower also had a prepared statement for reporters when hi big Constellation landed. In that, he said something that sounded siniilar'-.lo the off-the-cuff remark He said:; "We face .an enemy whom we, cannot hope to impress by words however eloquent, b'ut only by seeds -- executed under circumstances of our own choosing. He gave no indication of whai he meant. On the contrary, he sale he is limited in what he can report publicly: "As we all know," he added, "certain aspects of battle problems cannot ever be discussed publicity." 'Hie general tone of both statements, however, was a qualified optimism. "All of us have long realized." he said in the prepare? statement, "that there can be no simple formula for bringing i swift, victorious end lo this war. But at the very least, that knowledge prepares us for whatever See EISENHOWER on Pajje 10 V/eather Arkansas Forccasl—Generally fair and continued rather cold this afternoon, tonight and Tuesday.

Russia is doing just that against the Western democracies, the Italian premier said in a speech al the opening meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's top cuoncil.

HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON W — President Truman said loday the idea of freedom is in danger not only from Communism but from those who xvant Ihe government to regulate the mind and spirit. "The external threat to liberty should not drive us into suppressing liberty al home," he said. "Those who want the government to regulate mailers of the mind and spirit are like men who are EO afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination." The President's remarks were in a speech prepared for historic ceremonies dedicating a new shrine in the National Archives for display of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, anil Bill of Bights. All three documents have been sealed In glass cases specially designed to prolcet them from deterioration. Under Ihe shrine is a 20-ton safe, with built-in elevators, considered lo be Impregnable against burglars, fire, bombs or water. The ConsUtulIon and the Declaration were moved, under heavy guard, from the Library of Conyrevi on Snlurdsy. The Bill of nights, ratified 161 years ago lo- day, was already at the Archives Building. Truman said all freedom-loving nations face the challenge of Communism and he saiil any man who Isn't alarmed by It "simply rfoMn't understand the silualton—or he is crazy." "But alarm is one thing, and hysteria Is another," he continued. "Hysteria Impels people to destroy the very Ihlng they arc struggling to preserve." Truman dirt not name those he described at one point as persons "who believe'II is loo dangerous to proclaim liberty Ihroughoul all the land lo all the Inhabitants." "Invasion and conquest by Com- munht armies," he asserted, "would be a horror beyond our capacity lo Imagine. But Invasic/i and conquest by Communist Ideas of right and wrong would be iusl as bad. "For us (o embrace the methods and morals of Communism In order to defeat Communist aggression would be a moral disaster worse than any physical cataslro- phe. "If that should come lo pas, Ihen the Consliuiiion and (bo Declaration would be utterly dead ano: what we sre doing today would be the gloomiest burial In Ihe history of (lie world." Tlie retiring chief executive went on to say lhat be did not believe Ihis was going lo happen, lhat Ihc ceremony marked a new dedication to Ihe ideals of liberty. The President recalled that when the Declaration and Constitution were scaled In their cases almost a year and a half ago, he had spoken of the threat of totalitarianism and Communism, and he continued: "That Ihrcal still menaces freedom. The struggle against Communism is Just as crucial Just as demanding, as It was then." But he said the Idea of freedom is also 'in danger from those who "hate Communism, but who nt the same lime are unwilling lo cc- knowlcdge the Ideals of the Constitution as the supreme law o! the land. . . "Whether they know It or not, those people arc enclosing the spirit as well as the letter of the original Constitution In a glass case, sealed off from the living nation. They are tinning It Into mummy, as Uend >.i some old Pharaoh of Kg.vp!, and In so doing they are giving aid and comfori (o the enemies of democracy." 120 Injured in Riot On Pongam Island By RAM SUMMERL1N PUSAN, Korea (AP) — Allied guards Wiled 82 mutinous Communist, prisoners nnd wounded 120 on Pongam Island Sunday in quelling the bloodiest Rod riot of thh- Ifr, ' rean war.

The trouble started when prisoners In six compounds defied strict orders by organizing military drills and demonslrnlions. Then Ihey massed nt the top of a high terrace. Three ranks of prisoners with locked arms defied advancing U. N. troops. Other prisoners behind them showered the tlards with rocks. Unable to advance, (he guards tired warning shols and ordered the Reds lo slop. .Mass llrcak Prevented When they refused, tbe POW command said, "individual weapons were brought to bear. . . to prevent the entire mass from breaking out." Presumably the weapons were flics and carbines. The approach lo the compounds Is from below, preventing Ihc effective use of concussion grenades. Tear gas grenades could not be used because a high wind was sweeping across Lhe terraces.
