THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Ninety-Sixth Year. No. 132 LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5,1952. —TEN PAGES (4 O'CLOCK HOME EDITION)—PRICE 5« Stevenson Begins West Tour Today Hopes To Outmatch Sweep Of General in South: Will Lay Out Campaign SPRINGFIELD, III (AP)— Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson took off from Capitol Airport Friday for Denver where he will open a campaign tour of the West that his managers hope will outmatch Dwight D. Eisenhower's thunderous sweep through the South. He expects to hit nine states in nine days, travelling mostly by air. In at least one speech, and possibly others, the Democratic presidential candidate intends to carry the fight to the Republicans, tempting to mow down some of their major contentions. The Denver address Friday night (7 p. m. CST) will be aimed at the GOP battle cry, "it's time for a change." Heretofore, Stevenson has been largely occupied with setting forth his own ideas, laying the broad foundation of his campaign. He has hot answered in detail Republican accusations about corruption in government, nor taken public notice of any direct attacks on himself.

Mostly, however, he had concentrated on elucidating the principles of his own program. The Denver speech departs from this pattern. Stevenson's campaign manager, Wilson Wyatt, said he will ''pay his respects for one or more of the catch phrases and slogans o£ the Republicans." A speech on foreign policy is scheduled for San Frcancisco, Sept. 9. But since Stevenson already had explored that subject in other talks, he may take this occasion to hit back at the Republicans on this issue, while developing his own position, respecting it Wyatt described the reports of Eisenhower's high powered drive through the South as merely "interesting." He added, "It hasn't TV's Crime and Horror Stories Health Officer Worry American Medical Ass'n worried us." Sen. George Florida took a different view. He said "Eisenhower made a big impression. It certainly means he's got some strength." Thinks Schools Should Open TOPEKA (/PI — Dr. Thomas R. Hood, executive secretary of the Kansas Board of Health, said Friday he sees little reason why schools should not operate as usual despite the heavy incidence of polio. "In the past, attempts to curb epidemics by closing schools have not been very successful," Hood said "In towns where children are normally around each other I see no reason why school should not go on."

"Unfortunately, astonishing little research has been done on the medical and psychological impact of television on children," the] Journal said in an editorial. i The Journal said that "for its Uncle Sam Has Giant Payroll For Employes own interest" the television industry should acknowledge the "adverse medical and psychological implications" found in many such programs. The Journal said a TV Magazine survey showed that in one week Los Angeles stations carried 852 major crime incidents, in addition to innumerable saloon brawls, slug- gings and assaults and other "minor" acts of violence. Seventy- five percent of the crime deluge was on programs for children. The editorial said another survey showed that in the group of 153 children subject to horror movies and radio shows, 76 per. cent Six Children Of Texan Are Polio Patients SAN ANTONIO, Tex. tm — With six children in the polio isolation ward of a San Antonio hospital, farmer Paul Pehl said Friday he would not return to the farm where they apparently contracted the disease. Thursday, Pehl walked wearily away from the ward where he had just left his sixth child, little six- year-old Dorothy. Dayton Pehl, 14, was admitted on Aug. 26. Tuesday of this week four more of the Pehl children— Daniel, 15; Paul Jr., 11; George, 10; and Elaine Frances, 9—were admitted to the polio ward. Two playmates of the German -American farmer's children—one their cousin—are also under polio treatment. Pehl is a small, sun-burned man from the Stonewall community in the hill country about 75 miles west of Austin. troops hit in darkness Friday morning. His arm was shattered by mortar shrapnel. He said bugle blasts and the screech of whistles pierced the darkness as the Chinese infantrymen surged toward U. N. positions. Another patient, his head wrapped in white bandages, leaned over and said "Those bugles sounded like horns from a string of: Model-T. Fords." Their names were withheld pending notification of relatives. The attack started about 1 a. m. with the thunder of Red artillery and mortars. "Those shells came down like a steel screen," said the soldier with the riddled arm. "I was on a machine gun, but we never got to fire it." A mortar shell landed near his post, killing one and wounding three others. "We could see the goonies coming over the top. They kept coming right through their own shell fire. That killed a lot of them. 3ut those goonies were in front of us, on our flanks and behind us. year that ended June 30 soared nearly two billion dollars above the A.

For the past fiscal year, (1952) the committee said payrolls of government civilian workers totaled 59,541,000.000, an increase of 24 per cent or $1,822,000,000 over the previous 12 months. Violinist Settles Income Tax Claim WASHINGTON (ffl— Fritz Kreisler, world-famed violin virtuoso, and his wife settled tax claims amounting to $1,384,513 in 1944 lor ?300,000, the Bureau of Internal! Revenue disclosed Friday. The bureau quoted the Vienna- bom violinist as saying he had no intention of defrauding the government, but became involved in the case through innocent error, bad advice and his own complicated affairs. Officials said the compromise was accepted because of the age of the case, the complex nature of the government's proof, Kreisler's stock market losses and deductions he was entitled to but had not listed. , The bureau's voluminous file on the case indicated that the government was somewhat dazzled by its encounter with the great artist, and that Kreisler lived up to the best artistic tradition in knowing practically nothing about his prosperous but tangled affairs. His wife, Harriet, told the bureau: "He knows nothing, nothing;) he can only fiddle, fiddle, fiddle." The increase was due to (1) pay raises voted federal workers by biters. lieve there is too much danger of The Journal said there is more spreading polio, to the problem than "the proposal j Dr _ c Henry Murphy, city-coun- made by one congressman, _whoj fy hea]th offi - cer for ' T ka and i.ii-il!/ir3 4n *-h n r\am-ittri f\F fin 11'atP .,. __ , Shawnee County, added the weight of his opinion to the "school as the mother that he do something about television by declaring, 'Did you ever think of turning the damned thing off?'

Civilians employed by the military establishment received $4,639,0000,000, an increase of 32 per cent or $1,136,000,000 over fiscal! 1951. Workers in civilian agencies were paid $4,902,0000.0000. as a gain of 16 per cent or $686,000,000 over the previous year. Most of the July increase in civilian government workers was in the military establishment which gained 2,329 during the month, boosting its total 1,339,501, or about half the total federal civilian payroll. The report showed 184,317 civilians employed outside the continental U. S. in July. Nixon Labels Three Lies in Campaign PORTLAND. Me. I/B — Richard M. Nixon said Friday the "three big lies" of the 1952 presidential campaign are that the Democratic administration brought prosperity, mat the nation is enjoying the best prosperity it could have and that Gen. Eisenhower's election would destroy this prosperity. The Republican vice presidential candidate said "these shabby allegations constitute a deliberate fraud cooked up by Truman, Stevenson and associates in their frantic effort to stay in power.". "They have hoodwinked us for usual" idea. "I feel children probably are better off in schools than they were in the weeks before school opened. School is less strenuous than the usual summer activities such as swimming and playing and it is less dangerous than going to shows." In the meantime the state board of health listed 24 new polio cases, bringing the total for the year to 662. Five new cases were listed for Topeka; two each at Dodge City, St. Paul, Phillipsburg and Kansas City; one each at Netawaka, Waverly, Wilmore, Mission, Stark, Lyndon, Havensville, Manhattan, Harveyville, Colby and Hanover.

Nixon said that "wha ; : prosperity we now enjoy was bought with lives of our men who have fought, and still are fighting, overseas, and with the dollars you're going to have to pay back in the hard years to come." The only hope, he said, was for Eisenhower's election.

High School Student Dies From Scalding at Plant SALEM, Ore. Iff) — A high school student pushed a load of beans into a huge steam room at a cannery Thursday night, inadvertently was locked inside and scalded to death. The boy was Charles Ross Hughes, 17, Salem, who was working at the California Packing Co. plant hero this summer. Other workers did not see him push the last load of beans into the 25-foot- long room, appparently just before the doors were locked. The steam was turned on, keeping the room at 260 degrees. Forty- five minutes later the doors were opened and his body discovered. The two fellow workers who-open- Support for Ike Tops Press Survey NEW YORK UD — Respublican Nominee Dwight D.

Ike Might Name Negro To Cabinet Chicago Talks for General Who Set Out 10-Point Peace Plan in Speech CHICAGO (AP) — Dwight D. Eisenhower said Friday he would appoint a Negro to his Cabinet if he were elected President and if a Negro were the right man for the job. The Republican presidential nominee, making an exception t<» a rule about discussing possible appointments, told a three - state meeting of Republican leaders of his views on a Negro at the top level of his administration. He was asked his position on that by Edgar Brown, a candidate for congress from Illinois and a Negro himself. "Regarding the appointment of a Negro to the Cabinet," Eisenhower said, "I will search for merit wherever it is ... If, in a particular field where the appointment would give reassurance to Negro men ... I would do such a thing." Earlier ! Friday, Eisenhower told the GOP leaders that the Republicans can win in November only by convincing the people "they are sincere and not merely making political'promises." The GOP presidential candidate was off to a roaring "crusade" for world peace which he said could be achieved only by throwing the "wasters, the bunglers and the incompetents" out of office in Washington. To a wildly cheering throng of 17,500 jam-packed into Convention Hall a Philadelphia Thursday night, the .presidential nominee said: "Let's sweep this country, with such a wave of resolve, determination and action that the little men, the defeatists, the false prophets of the false doctrine that it can't be done, will be tossed out of power and the real America given a chance to move in.'' On that theme—and offering a 10 - point peace program of his own—Eisenhower formally launched his presidential campaign. And Friday he carried his fight westward to Chicago and a five-day tour of the Middlewest touching H- inois, Minnesota, Ohio, and Indiana. The Philadelphia speech —' beamed, across the nation by television and radio—climaxed a day of thunderous ovations for Eisen- riower and his wife, Mamie. He offered this 10 - point program for peace: 1. An administration in Washington "which we ourselves can trust." 2. An administration "that put» ts trust in the people." 3. A foreign policy with "dear and positive goals." 4. Allies in Europe, South America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa who "must be bound to us" n friendship. 5. The aid> "by peaceful means" of the right of everyone "to livt n freedom." 6. "Unwavering support" of th« U. N. 7. An America economically strong and growing daily in productive strength. 8. An America strong militarily >ut striving for permanent peace 'with general disarmament.'* 9. "Imaginative and practical use of every other me t ans for pre- •entirig war," including "power of truth" and "able diplomacy." 10. "Root out of government those who would betray our system jr abuse our confidence." Democrat Predicts Ike- Will Be Another London WASHINGTON ®— Democratic Rep. Michael J. Kirwan of Ohio predicted Friday at the White House that Dwight D. Eisenhower would prove to be "just like another Landon" for the Republi- :ans. Adlai Stevenson "is going to sweep the country just like Roosevelt carried 46 of the 48 states in beating former Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas that year." Brunettes Get Noel At Beauty Pageant ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. Iffl — Blondes may be whistle-bait in ome quarters but so far none has ured a point in talent and swim ;uit preliminaries for the Miss America crown. All of the five lovelies who have ;arnered precious points in two light's of competition in the two ivisions are brunettes of one hade or other. And time is fast running out on the girls with the light colored ocks. Friday night will see the ast of the preliminaries before nal judging Saturday night. Thursday night's honors went to Miss Georgia and Miss Chicago. They joined three other brunettes in the preliminary winner's circle: Miss District of Columbia, Miss Alabama, and Miss California. All five girls now stand a good chance to be among the 10 finalists Saturday night, although one preliminary victory doesn't always mean a ticket to the championship round. Fifty-two beauties from the U. S., its possessions and Canada are vying for the title of Miss America. 1953,
