The Dall Competition Produces New Sales Stunts Hy SAM DAWSON NEW YOllK ia— A new age of gimmicks and promotions is arriving with the increase in competition. Along with seeking new ways'and machines to cut costs, businessmen are turning on the sales heat with stunts and premiums. Fall has brought out a fine frenzy of these: Banks holding fashion shows, silversmiths calling on sculptors to turn out a new spoon, retailers trying to lure male customers by offering gloves of mink. Here's just a sampling of some of the new trends this week as businessmen go after the consumer's dollar. DeSoto is Whipping up dealer Interest as competition in the auto field grows intense by showing them 3D movies of the forthcoming 1954 DeSoto passing competitive makes on the highway. Ford Motor Co. is going into the farm machinery field on a stepped- up scale, says vice president Thomas A. Farrell. The company will design new labor-saving machinery aimed at cutting farm costs. Du Pont and Deering - Milliken teamed up to celebrate Anti- Frcoze Week with a fashion show held amidst the tellers' cages of the Manhattan Savings Bank on Madison Avenue. The three- way gimmick: Du Pont, maker of anti-freeze mixture for autos, was introducing "Miss Antl-Frceze" to urge motorists to prepare for cold weather. Deering - Milliken was parading models garbed in coats lined with metal insulated material touted as keeping them from freezing. The bank was urging car owners and coat wearers to save money by being prepared—and put the mon- fey in the bank. Promotions doubtless will step all along the line as Christmas nears. And next week will give businessmen a chance— it's National Want Ad Week. It's also Cleaner Air Week. t t RED MIG PILOT REUNITED WITH MOTHER—Noh Kum Suk, the North Korean lieutenant who flew his MIG to Seoul last month and became eligible for the $100,000 reward posted by the United Nations command, is reunited with his mother, herself a refugee from North Korea, in Seoul Oct. 12.

Urbatia Jury Imposes Death In Sex Slaying URBANA, III. (UP)~~An all-mile jury early today handed down the death penalty for Harry Spegal, 28, sex slayer of 6-year-old David Wane Anderson. The death sentence was announced by the jury after seven hours of deliberation. The jury had retired after C.E. Tate, Spegal's attorney, withdrew an innocent plea and entered a "judicial admission of guilt" just as the state started to present evidence. Spegal was the first man sen* fenced to death in Champaign County since December, 1027, Trial was in Champaign County Circuit Court. The boy's strangled body was found last July 11 in his father's room at a rooming house owned by his grandmother. While police were investigating the murder Spegal walked up to a parked squad car and told officers "I think 1 just killed a boy." He was arrested and charged with murder and sodomy. -Mail Galesbur Thursday, October 15 Labor Unions Strive to Cut Accidents School Denies Discriminating Against Boys TOMS RIVER, N. J.

Cedar St The pike, weighing 7 pounds and 14 ounces, was captured by Houghton in Lake CheCek last June and at that time won the month's prize for the largest pike caught by members of the Big Six Rod & Gun Club of the Chctek area. Now the season's competition has closed and Mr. Houghton has been notified that he holds the season's record on walleyes, with a larger prixe award. He said the fish was caught on a bait-casting lure—a silver-finish wobbling spoon with pork rind strip—and that it put up quite a battle on the light tackle he was using. Eisenhowers Train Trip Due to Pilot KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UP) — Backstairs at the traveling White House: The main reason for President Eisenhower's train trip to Defiance, Ohio, this morning was the Chief Executive's pilot, Lt. Col. William Draper. Mr. Eisenhower wanted to visit the Defiance College of his old friend, Kevin McCann, last month as he flew from Denver to Washington. But Draper took a look at the Defiance airfield and ruled out a plane stop with the Chief Executive aboard. The field could not handle the hc.avy ship, the Constel* lation Columbine, in which the President flies. So to fulfill a long-standing com-| mitment to McCann, the President took an overnight train from Washington and after stopping at Defiance today, shifted to a plane at Toledo for the rest of his journey to Kansas City. its sights today on a 25 per ccnt|that the boys must leave school reduction in industrial and construction accidents within a three- Victoria Woman Tours Europe VICTORIA—On June 24 a group of 24 tourists started out on a conducted tour of Europe.

Low salaries leave inspectors "vulnerable! to temptations," he added. He estimated that 150,000 unreported accidents occurred in 1952 besides the 52,000 compensable injuries reported. In resolutions adopted Wednesday, the convention asked that the State Labor Department be granted "more funds for the employment of more construction inspectors;" that state laws be enacted to require the licensing of general building contractors, and that a Some friends of the Presidentl have suggested that he "sneak away*' to play golf in secret and thus escape the attention of reporters and the public.
