Ike did not get a plurality gs large as rung up by Presidents Harding, Coolidge and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Roosevelt's record 11,072,014 was far ahead of Eisenhower's 6,616,233 over Stevenson. But the general's tola! vote of 33,027,549 bt-sted Roosevelt's highest vote hy 6,175,052 and surpassed Wendell Willkie's record Republican showing by 11,622,794. Eisenhower has established high- water marks that may go untouched for years. How he did it will be conversational fodder among Americans for months. Views of Others South Now Vast Research Ground Cheering, Not Blearing •/y'l/.Jjf' 1 *r,*j'.'-tt *Tl Nov; 4 Vote Proved Ike Stronger than Party ^ r Except to. the experts, there's usual-' ly nothing more 'deadly than yester- .f day's election statistics.-The official results of the Nov. 4 presidential vote are, however, a little livelier reading. They bring out better than did the incomplete, unofficial returns the astonishing nature of General Eisenhower's victory ovtr Governor Stevenson. For one, thing, they demonstrate- • dramatically the proportions of the general's impact upon the normally Democratic South. Ike, of course, won Florida, Texas, Tennessee and Virginia, and also captured the bordfcr stales of Maryland, Missouri and Oklahoma.' He missed taking Kentucky by 700 votes and lost South Carolina by just 15,000. But the total vote in 16 southern border states is perhaps the .best proof of what happened. Stevenson polled 7,129,000 votes in thtse 16, but Eisenhower was only 134,000 behind with 6,995,000. Of the nine states Ike lost in this group, six gave him more than'40 per cent of their vote. His vote in Georgia, 30 per cent, was the lowest he got in the South and in the country. His 35 per cent in Alabama and 39 per cent in Mississippi were his only other national showings below 40. Having run neck and neck in h i s opponent's strongest territory, Ike could occasion no surprise by the general magnitude of his performance. For instance, he w*n 29 states with a vote of 55 per cent or better, and 14 of these 29 gave him more than 60 per cent. The other 10 he captured fell between 50 and 55 per cent. Ike's final margins in the big population states were staggei'ing — 848,000 in New York, 700,000 in California, 500,000 in Ohio, 443,000 in Illinois. In much smaller states like Iowa and Wisconsin he buried Stevenson by more than 350,000 votes. Pennsylvania was a striking exception. There Ike scored by a relatively modest 270,000, not in pace with his other showings. A prime reason:, a strong new Democratic organization in Philadelphia, which gave Stevenson a 160,000-vote edge. In achieving this tremendous sweep, Ike left his Republican running mates far behind. All the comparative figures aren't in yet, but in 37 stiftes Ike van ahead of the highest stale or national Republican candidates by a net of 2,. 561,000 votes. The margin may be greater when all totals are added. The general outdistanced his slate-mates in all prmidly Southerners arc thinking of their beloved section these clays ns one of marvelous expansion In Industry and other enterprise, as _a section of grcnt attainment In production. One Important as well us significant angle which may be escaping some of them, however. Is the (net that the South has also become a vital research or experimental ground. The economic progress and balance In the South are tied very definitely to whnt is being accomplished tn the research field both In rounding out development already undertaken and In bringing to pass new. In the past year no less than 103 new laboratories and major research addttloai have come to the South to bring to light facts or to assist. In working out situations to favorable points. H. McKfnley Conway Jr., director of the Southern Association of Science and Industry, to whom , the 103 figure Is credited, fcets that the challenge . to the South us a region of great potential Is to pool It* talents and resources In the common Interest and thereby promote greater economic advancement. His is a fine, an Intelligent view »s he declares that balanced economic progress for a specific area Is dependent on the Joining of hands by business an rilndustrlal technicians to show the Chamber of Commerce executive and the laboratory chemist what they have In common, and to help their separated but mutually dependent fields combine Ihelr skills In achieving success. ;" This Is good philosophy and If the South vdll continue to apply 1C Intelligently and unselfishly, the development of our region as a whole will move faster and In more balanced and secure fashion. We have come a great distance In the development of the South since World War II. Much of our accomplishment has been due to cooperation among ourselves rather than competition. , South Carolina Is a shtnh)g example wltli -the . fine service to the economld interests of the state that has been rendered by bofh Individuals antl the slate agency known as the South Carolina Board. Ten years ago, according to Mr. Conway, there was not n single major consulting research Institution in the South. Today the section can count 40 well-equipped general consulting laboratories, 25 commercial testing laboratories and rnpre than 200* Individual consultants who rank as experts in virtually every field of science. Never before, therefore, has the South paid as much attention to science as Is the case now. And science has become a recourse which Is opening the way to an orderly, a productive and permanent development of a great region, whoso potential too long had remained untouched. As Mr. Conway puts it, "technological climate" has been added which is spurring the use of properly trained people In our midst to tremendous enhancement with unquestioned pavoff. • —Greenville (S.C) Piedmont.

This gave South a chance- to make the contract by means of an unusual play. East won the first trick with the ace of diamonds and hopefully returned the jack of diamonds. South won with the king of diamonds, drew trumps with the king and ace of hearts, and successfully finessed the queen of spades. A spade to the ace was followed by a diamond ruff in dummy, and South then led dummy's last spade. East naturally played the king spades on, this trick, and, South ide the key play of the hand by scarding a low- club Instead of uffing. If East now led a spade or a amend, South could discard an- "All my life I've been an actress to avoid being, domestic.

If east led clubs, dummy's king would make a trick. Hence thc- contract was now unbeatable, If South had made the "normal" play of ruffing dummy's last spade hie would have lost threa club tricks in addition to the ace of diamonds. It is Interesting to note, also, that East could have defeated the contract by playing the ten of diamonds instead of the ace of diamonds at the very first trick. This would have made U possible for West to win the second round of diamonds, whereupon a shift to clubs would be clearly Indicated. East cannot be criticized for missing this play, since West might have been leading- from the king of diamonds instead of"from the queen, in which case the play ould cost a diamond trick. tbe Doctor Says— Written for NEA Service By EOWIS f JORDAN, M.D. M. B. asks a difficult, but inter- ting question: "H.ive electric shock treatments," she asks, 'proved ti be helpful in easing mental di lurbnnces in persons where sucVAcondition is apparently .nherlted? The rensot tms question is difficult to ansVer Is that it is not clear Just wVfcl the correspondent means when Ishe says "inherited mental disturbances."

However, the riuestton of electric shock treatments is an exceedingly interesting one 'and can be dls- cus^ed in general terms.

In large doses this Insulin causes a type of reaction which doctors call shock. The mental conditlpn of many of the mental patients who received this shock treatment cleared vip. However, certain disadvantages developed from the use of Insulin. A substance called metrazol was then tried. This also produced shock. A few years later electricity be gan to be used to give the shock treatments and this too ot.bug, aborrootguhless udiny .Imeaassnc used most often, and although Ihc.-e treatments do not cure a! mental patients, they do help in many cases. Usually several shock treatments have to be given before the best results are obtained. Persons who have friends or relatives whose cases warrant trying shock treatment ought not to expect too much. H does not always work, ut It offers hope to many. Of course, it is not suitable for everyone and the mental specialist the only one who can decide whether or not It is worth a trial. Mental Illness Is Disease It cannot be emphasized too often that those who have a mental disease, arc Just as truly ill as are those who have a broken bone, tumor or some other trouble which can be seen or felt. In the not too distant past, those who suffered from a mental dis ease were often kept in chains or solitary confinement, were beaten anfl no effort was" made to get a the source of the difficulty.
