/ WlGE EIGHT Cotton Ed Smith Is Badly Beaten ', Long Senate Career Of South Carolina Leader Is Ended COLUMBIA; s..o., July 20. <UP> —Governor Johnston's lead over Senator Cotton Ed Smith In yesterday's. Democratic primary 1ms remained steady as tabulations continue to come in. With returns complete from 1,442 of South Carolina's 1,540 precincts, Johnston has 125,947 votes to 83,765 for Smith, a margin of more than 42,000. Johnston Is still some 18,000 votes ahead of his combined opposition. Epps has 1,625 votes; Daniel, 13,307, And Merrimon, 2,850. At his Florence headquarters, Smith had only tills brief comment to make on the primary that spells the end of his 36 years in the Senate: ,.-•••.' • "If this election meets the approval, of a majority of the qualified voters of South Carolina, I abide by their decision." Close Call On Nantes Mission The big 13-17 wobbled drunkdily over th e murky waters of the English .Channel .and Staff Scrgt. Joseph S, Scapellato, son of Mr. aiid Mrs. .Charles Scappellato of 336 Chambers St., Clairton, Pa., waist: gunner, now nn Air Crctv Trainee at the BAAF, tried not to let the strain get him. •-Two motors • were gone . . . ravaged by German flak in a raid over . Nantes, France, and Uio mighty roar of Ihe Fortress was reduced to an Irregular, • hacking cough. J "Prepare to bail out," cried Ibc pilot. "The third engine just went." • Scauellato/looked al. his fellow crew members and saw they were as tense as lie. . Suddenly . . . "Jettison everything'* you can," shouted the pilot. "Maybe tin's old baby'll make it after nil." . Feverishly the crew worked, throwing guns, amriuinllion, anything-they could move, out of the plane. . "There's the coast!" shouted Ihc pilot.. "Stand by for a crash landing." ' the crew braced themselves and more than one prayer was silently offered„ in that moment. Thc wounded eagle faltered earthward. Then, with a jaf that threw crew members violently from their feet, the big fortress hit the chalky sod of' the :English coast and skidded to a stop. ,' "Ir-never thought we'd make II," says Scapclliito, a 24 year-old Pennsylvania!? who returned lo America early in 1944, after completing 25 missions in the European Theater. "I took part In the big raids on Schwlcnfurt, Hamburg, Stullgart, Kiel .> and Wilheltnshaven, but I never had ns closs a call as 1 dirt on that Nantes mission." Now, Scapellato, a former clerk in Clairton, Pa., is working on thc line nt the BAAF while (wailing his call to pilot's training. On thc •breast of his dress uniform he wears :thc Distinguished Flying Cross, and the Air Medal with three • Oak Leaf clusters, but he Is totally unimpressed by his honors. '"Veah, I got the DKC lor 'extraordinary achievement'," he grins. The .'extraordinary achievement 1 consisted of managing to live through those'25 raids. BLYTHEVa.LB (AKK.)

Starling Bunch, son of Mrs. Kale Bunch of Ynrbro has arrived back in the United States after more than two years foreign service in the Southwest Pacific. 1 Tills news was contained in n telegram lo Mrs. Bunch from her fan, who informed her that ho would be a patient svt O'Reilly General Hospital In Springfield,' Mo., for the next two weeks before coming here to spend his furloxign. He was scheduled to arrive In Springfield today. A member of nu Army ordnance company, Corporal Bunch has been in service in New Guinea and New Caledonia, as well as other Pacific battls! zones. the sight ot it. While playing down whatever modest part correspondents have in military alfalrs, it Is Ouster's articulate expression which makes his book. For In his detailed, human fears of suffering ami pain; of mental anguish aggravated by unfounded worries, lie speaks the part of any wounded soldier or sailor. ' If you like your current history straight from the shoulder you'll like "Through the Perilous Night." • * • GLENCAXNON'S BACK Friends of Colin Glcncannon, bibulous first engineer of the British tramp Inchclille Castle, have no doubt been wondering what's been cooking—or .distilling—with thc incomparable Scot since the war broke out. It had been feared In some quarters that the shortage' of Scotch whisky might have killed him off, for as anybody even remotely I acquainted with Mr. Glencannon knows, his very life blood is Duggan's Dew of Klrkintllloch—"a superior most exceptional product— the unvarying choice of discriminating connoisseurs in clubs, bars, private homes and In fact wherever an aged, mellowed, and truly Scotch whisky is appreciated" That Is his favorite quotation. Well, Guy Gllpatrlc has brought Duggim's Dew's best customer back, safe, sound, no more, aged but just as mellow as ever hi "Mr. Glencannon Ignores the War" (Diit- ton; 52). Wo meet him again confronted by a grave crisis. No Dew.
