Upstart Defeats McCarrairs Man RENO (.?i—In a stunning David and Goliath drama, an unknown young newspaperman Wednesday pulled the political upset of Nevada history. With about 98 per cent of Tuesday's primary election vote counted. Lanky Tom Mechling, 31, was leading Sen. Pat McCarran's hand picked candidate for the Democratic senatorial nomination by 699 votes—with only about 500 more to be counted. Wednesday gave Mechling 15,777 votes to 15,078 for Alan Bible, 42, Nevada's widely liked former attorney general. Bible, one of Nevada's most prominent citizens, conceded defeat Wednesday. The Democratic nominee will try in November to oust Republican Sen. George Malone, who easily won renomination. Mechling is a soft-spoken, boyish looking former newsman, who until seven months ago worked in Washington, D. C., with Kiplinger Newsletter and the San F -icisco Chronicle's Capita] bureau.

In between and probably during the speeches, farmers on tractors will exhibit their plowing prowess i before the trained eyes of judges. Concessionnaires found they wouldn't have to wait until Saturday to do good business. There are a lot of hungry men -already at Plowville. In fact, a veritable army is bivouacked there now: Carpenters are flooring tents and building restrooms. Power company workers are setting poles and stringing miles of lines. Farm implement men are hauling machines and setting up exhibts. Scores of tents already are in place, and many more will go up. Long rows of shiny tractors are lined up for the farmers who'll compete in the plowing -competition. SCHOOL DAYS BEGIN—Rural schools in the county opened yesterday, about a week earlier than city schools. But there are compensations—the county kids get out earlier. The top photograph shows a few of the 23 students of the Hund School in the yard at recess yesterda}' afternoon. Their teacher, Mrs. Cornelia Walker, 420 Ninth Ave., is on the steps keeping track of things. The Hund School is six miles northwest of Leavenworth off highway 73.

Eisenhower earned his two-fisted attack on : h e Truman administration before a roaring crowd of 25 )00 here Wednesday—fighting :o break the Southland from :he Democrats. He declared he came South to :ell the people the great differenca between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party was: "One party has gotten us into a mess . . . and the other is trying to bring an honest administration to Washington." Eisenhower was cheered by some 75,000 people along the route to the City Hall, where another 25,000 were waiting to hear him in Woodrow Wilson Park. These estimates were made by Police Commissioner Eugene Connor. Eisenhower lashed out again at 1 what he called the "mess in Washington" as he has done across tha South. "We don't have to have bungling and we don't have to hava Traft." he said, and the crowd cheered. This was the first time sines j I860 that a presidential nominee 'had campaigned in Alabama. And Alabamians said in their memory there was nothing- to compare with the turnout for Eisenhower. A few hours earlier, in Tampa, Fla., Eisenhower had appealed for the women of America to join his campaign "to help correct the things that are wrong with us." The GOP presidential nominee's appeal to the women voters was estimated at 9,000 gathered at tha Tampa Ball Park. Tampa followed the lead of Atlanta, Jacksonville and Miami in giving Eisenhower a rousing welcome on his sweep across Dixie that has been booming in such spectacular fashion. "I am anxious to draw tha spirit 'of women into the campaign I am trying to wage/' Eisenhower said. Standing under a broiling sun on a bunting-draped platform at home plate, Eisenhower declared "we must recall the spiritual and moral values of pur forefathers" in government. He said he referred to the situation in Washington as a "mess" because "that's what the opposition calls it" "The're is a difference between the two parties," Eisenhower said. "One is saddled with a mess. Tha other wants to clean it up." tion zoomed to a record high ofjTuesday at Fort Leavenworth, the Alf Larson, Kasson farmer andji,979.996 O n March 1 this year as j army school faced a housing prob- chairman of the reception commit- See SPEECHES, Page Eight.
