Eisenhower laid before a vast but largely silent rural audience today a program offering the American farmer a continuation of present price supports plus "aggressive," unregimented programs to give him a bigger, fairer income. The Republican presidential nominee reached for the farm vote from the same rough platform on which his Democtatic rival, Gov. Adlai Stevenson, made a bid for rural ballots four hours later. Crowds had been streaming to the National Plowing Contest here since before dawn to hear them both and judge between them— crowds measured by the acre on an overcast day with a chill in the air. Contest officials said the throngs came up to advance forecasts of 100,000 or more. For lead-off man Eisenhower,! in what narrowly misssed being a direct, old-fashioned political de-l bate, the people of the farm beltj seemed to reserve judgment as ne went down the line for existing laws that guarantee price supports for basis crops at 90 per cent of parity through 1954. Mark Aaron Jr. Eighth In Plowing Contest Mark Aaron Jr., RR 4, Leavenworth placed fourth in the national level land plowing " contest at the National Plow Matches at Kasson, Minn., Saturday. The Associated Press reported the results of the plowing contest which was the main reason for the gathering at Kasson in spite of the speeches by Stevenson and Eisenhower which drew the huge crowds. A 37-year-old Ohioan won the national contour plowing contest Martin Cummins, Lewistown, O. champion, took first with 83.3 points. William C. Humphrey, Albany, Mo., was tenth. A Plainfield, III., man, Graeme Stewart won the level land plowing contest. He scored 87.88 out o! a possible 100 points. Dale M. Scott of Rea., Mo., was fifth.

Adlai Stevenson addressing the same huge farm audience from the same platform that Dwight D. Eisenhower had occupied four hours earlier, today accused his Republican opponent of attempting t o "p low under the Republican platform altogether." The Democratic nominee departed from his prepared text-to dig at the Republican candidate's bid for the farm vote. Both spoke before a crowd at the national plowing contest which contest officiEfls estimated at greater than 100,000. The intent but subdued audience standing in an 18-acre pasture- amphitheater accorded each of the speakers equal amounts of sparse and scattered applause. Though Stevenson had the advantage of looking over E i s e n- hower's bid, he made few departures from his own prepared text. Stevenson drew the heaviest applause when he attacked both the Republican record and Republican campaign pledges. As he has done in addressing other special interest groups, Stev- See STEVENSON Page Ten Sportsman Club Raid Successful PoKce paid a successful visit to the Sportsman Club, 422 Cherokee, last night.

The governor's comment was made in answer to the newspaper's query regarding an invita- ion by the Salina chapter of the American Association of University Women to Arn and Democratic Candidate Charley Rooney o debate campaign issues. Ear- ier today, Rooney said he had not received the invitation but was 'eagerly awaiting" it. Arn said the Telegram's reference to the invitation was the first he had heard of it.
