VOLUME XXXII —NO. 261 MOUNT VERNON, ILLINOIS — SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 1952 25c PER V/EEK BY CARRIER MOVE DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS IKE CREATES HARMONY IN GOP RANKS Nixon Says General Has Professional and Amateur Politicians Pulling Together in Campaign. 4 DIRKSEN PLEDGES TO STUMP NATION Citizens Committee to Be Retained and There Will Be No Boss But Eisenhower. ^, By Associated Press DENVER — Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, tlie GOP presidential nominee, was credited by his running male today witii liaving done "a beautiful job of assuring harmony" between professional and amateur politicians backing "the Republican ticket. Sen. Richard M. Ni.von of California, the party's candidate for vice president, told a reporter the general's handling of a con, fcrenco of campaign leaders "left • no doubt in my mind that we are all Roing to be pulling together." Eisenhower and Ni.xon conferred with more than a score of their campaign strategists for two and a half houi-s late Friday after the general told a news conference: 1. He believes development of a sound program for world peace overrides all of the issues of the presidential campaign. He made that reply when asked for comment on a statement by his Demo|A era tic opponent, Gov. Adlai Ste- vcnson of Illinois, that foreign policy is fh'.. princ'r»nl issue. 2. He and Nixon will wage an intensive fighting campaign in all "the nooks and crannies of the United States." The general said he plans to start his whistle stop tour about Sept. 1. 3. The advice of political advisors will get top consideraton, but "there can be no boss of this campaign" other than Eisenhower himself. 0 VFW, Legion Speeches 4. Speeches he will make at the Veterans of Foreign Wars annual encampment in Los Angeles next Tuesday and at the American Legion national_ convention in New York /lUg. 2o, will be absolutely non-political. Arthur E. Summerfield, the now rhairman of the Republican National Committee and Eisenhower's campaign manager, said after 'esterday's strategy conference ^ hat it dealt almost entirely with P plans for continuing the national Citizens for Eisenhower Committee. That group played a major part in winning the nomination for the general. Dirksen To Campaign On the harmony side, Sen. Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois arrived at Eisenhower headquarters Friday night and told newsmen he will slump the country "with fervor" in behalf of the general. Dirksen backed Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio for the GOP nomination, and he created a stir at the convention with sharp ci'iti- cism of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, a leading Eisenhower supporter. DR. ZAPOLSKY RESIGNS T. B.

REDS SAY BOTH IKE, ADLA5 BAD ciate/ P By Aiseeiaterf Press CHAMPAIGN, 111. — You can have your flying saucers. Scientists have spott.'d a "flying river." • No pint-sized saucer, if you please. A man-sized river 100 miles long. Observers spotted the wayward stream several nights ago on their radar screen at the University of Illinois airport. It had them in deep water for a while. They finally figured out it was a reflected radar image of a 100-mile-long section of the Illinois River, which is 80 miles west of the airport. The Illinois State Water Survey's airport station has kept a radar check on the skies since 1948. Muterologist Glenn E. Stout said the station's observers have sighted some weird objects — from flying saucers to colored neon signs and rows of street lights. Stout said some of the images were caused by rain high in the air which never reached the ground. Others were reflections of ground objects caused by the bending of radar rays. Layers of hot and cold' air have different densities. Together they act like lenses or prisms, bending radar and light rays. Stout says they've found that— jus/t like the human eye — radar can be tricked, too. Seen any flying rivers? West Berlin Police Alerted Against Reds By Associated Press BERLIN—West Berlin police today alerted riot squads to combat H- planned invasion of western sectors by thousands of fanatical Communist youths. The Communist press has egged on the Red Free German Youth FDJ to rush to West Berlin Sunday to "demonstrate we are for peace." In whipping up enthusiasm, the Communists liave recalled the bloody street nghts on the boundaries a year ago in which more than 300 persons were injured. Westei-n authorities already have banned the demonstration, scheduled to be held in a city park {n the British sector, but the Communists claim they have not been told of the prohibition. Red youth leaders announced this morning the meeting would be held as planned^and that at least 10,000 demonstrators would attend. He Drives Off With Bus and 12 Passengers By Associated Press ST. LOUIS — A man drove off with a bus and 12 passengers last night while the driver was outside examining an over heated engine. An automobile load of off-duty bus drivers, seeing the man not in uniform, pulled up on the left side of the moving bus. The amateur bus operator swerved to the right and crashed into another auto-filled with other bus drivers. No one was reported hurt. Police identified the ajnateur driver as Kenneth D. Gorham, 41. They said he refused to discuss the matter. He was booked suspected of careless driving and larceny of a bus. TRUMAN LEAVES STRATEGY UP TO GOV.STEVEHSON Politics Not Even Discussed as He Lunches With McKinney. By Associated Prass KANSAS CITY. — President Truman left it clear today that he is leaving 1952 Democratic campaign strategy up to Adlai Stevenson, the new presidential nominee. Truman is ready and wiHing to stump the country in his "give 'em hell' fashion of 1948. But he is awaiting the signals from the Illinois governor. This conclusion was drawn by reporters after Truman and Frank E. McKinney, the Democratic national chairman, met for an hour Friday night over a dinner table in the presidential suite at Hotel Muehlebach. "We abstained from talking politics," McKinney told reporters afterwards. "It was entirely a social visit. I am on a vacation and the President is enjoying a rest here." McKinney wouldn't even speculate on how long he will remain as Democratic national chairman. "That all depends," 'he said, making it clear that he meant it depends on Stevenson who has asked him to stay on temporarily. Truman is flying back ot Washington Tuesday morning after he votes in the Missouri Democratic primary. COSTS HIT RECORD AND STILL GO UP WEATHER FOR NEXT MONTH By Associated Press WASHINGTON —The Weather Bureau said today that its 30- day outlook for August calls for temperatures to average above seasonal normals over the western half of the nation and in the deep South. The bureau added in its outlook: "Slightly cooler than normal weather is expected in the lake region and North Atlantic states. In other areas temperatures not far from normal are indicated. "Subnormal rainfall is predcited for the Great Plains, West Gulf states and Rocky Mountains, but "Subnormal rainfal is predicted in a belt extending from Arizona northward to Oregon. Over eastern portions of the nation, where drought has developed in many ai-eas. rainfall amounts for the month will not generally exceed seasonal normals." Broken Ankle Blamed on Pies By Associated Press DAYTON, O. — Fireman Wil- bug Sager blames the cherry pies for his broken ankle. Sager, 44, was working Friday as a fireman at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base here—until he was taken to the hospital. He said he was baking three cherry pies when a fire alarm sounded. He raced to the pole and slid to the floor below. Slid? He plummeted. Flour on his hands. Living CosM6 Pet. Higher Than Before Korean War; Putnam Blames Republicanr. By Associated Press WASHINGTON — Government stabilization chiefs look for the over-all cost of living to hit another new high later this month. "The ugly picture of rising prices is plain to anyone with a desire to see it," Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall said. His comment Friday night followed a Bureau of Labor Statistics report that food pprices have jumped to a new record—up 1.2 per cent for the two-week period ended July 15 and almost 16 per cent above June 1950 when the Korean fighting began. Food makes up about a third of the average urban famil: 's budget. Republicans were blamed by Economic Stabilized Roger L. Putnam. "There's no question that the cost of living is going to rise somewhat and that the 82nd Congress only recently adjourned did curb our program," Putnam said in a radio broadcast. "There's just no question that the Republican party was voting to cripple controls." Meanwhile, government officials estimated that increased ceiling prices on aluminum scheduled to be ordered Monday will boost na- t" nal defense costs by from 15 to 20 million dollars. Challeng:es Steel Figures Arnall's previous estimate that the recent increase'in steel prices will add $100 a year to the aver- ajo living cost of the American family was ,cliallenge.d fexJEsaest T. Weir, chairman of tne National Steel Corp.- the country's fifth largest steel producer. Weir said that if the industry operates at capacity during the ne-t 12 months, the actual price increase on steel will be "only about $10 per family per year spread over automobiles, washiing machines, refrigerators, tin cans and everything else made of steel that the family buys." Arnall told a reporter he does not plan to resign next week. There have been reports that he would resign when President Truman returns from Missouri. TWO BUILDINGS DESTROYED BY FIRE^OPDYKE Salem Fire Department Helps Bucket Brigade Battle* Flames. Fire last night destroyed two vacant business buildings in Opdyke and caused slight damage to a nearby house. Completely gutted by the blaze were a concrete building which formerly was occupied by the Security Bank and a next-door building v\hich used to be a grocery store. The blaze was kept in check by the Salem. Ill, fire department and a bucket brigade of Opdyke residents. The concrete block building was owned by the Security Bank of Mt. Vernon and the brick building by Harry White of Opdyke. Owners said that all that was remaining of the smouldering ruins this morning were the side walls and that damage would run around $3,500. Saleni Firemen Help Opdyke residents credited the Salem, 111. fire department with controlling the blaze and preventing its spread. The Mt. Vernon rural fire department was called but was unable to respond with its equipment as Opdyke is beyond the limits of the rural fire protection district. The Mt. Vernon city department was not called. The Salem fire department, contacted by telephone, responded to the blaze. The fire broke out at 11:10 p. m. and an hour later the Salem department was on the scene. The blaze spread to a shed at the rear of the brick building and then caught the nearby home of Harry V^hite. A bucket brigade quickly extinguished the fire at the White home and kept it from catching again pending arrival of firemen. Pump 3 Wells Dry ""nie'"°'nSalem firemen Army Makes It Tough for Draftee to Become Sergeant By Associated Press MOSCOW — Tlie Soviet newspaper Izvestia today declared the votei- in America's November pres- ^ idential election will have no choice — both candidates are equally bad. The Russian government- paper said ballots cast for either candidate would be going to "Wall Street." COMEDIAN WEDS By Associated Press NORT?I HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Comedian Jack Carson and actress Lola Albright were married Friday by the Rev. Errol B. Sloan in the Little Brown Church in the Valley. By Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Army has made it mighty hard for a draftee private to rise beyond buck sergeant in a normal two year tour of duty. Headquarters announced today that for personnel outside the Korean combat theater it is lengthening the time an Individual must serve in each grade before he may be promoted. The minimum amount of service required of a private first class before he may advance to corporal is, in effect, being tripled, And a sergeant firsit class now may have to remain in that gi'ade at least six times as long as formerly required befoi'e moving up to master sergeant. Army sources said it may take at least 28 months for the average draftee to graduate from private to sergeant, as against a possible minimum of 10 months heretofore. It would take 10 months, altogether, to go the whole way from private to master sergeant. Two.Year Draft Period This represents a fairly effective barrier for the individual drafted for 24 months of service. The reason, said the Aimy, is that there are not enough promo­ tions to go around. The solution is to make the few promotions that are available harder to get. Back of all this are budget restrictions which make it impossible for the Army to be generous in projnotions — and pay raises — to officers and enlisted men. Heretofore, the Army has required that a private remain in that grade at least four months. Promotions to other enlisted ranks could come no faster than two months apart. The new system retains the four- month requirement for privates, but sets these neW minimum "periods of service in present grade" private first class, six months; corporal, eight months; sergeant, 10 months; sergeant first class, 12 months. Perform Before Promotion v In addition, it requires that the private perform the duties of private fii'st class at least two months'before advancing to that rank. For each step up in grade, an individual mijst have an added month of preliminary service in the higher position. The Army said it is setting up a separate, more liberal promotion system for men in combat units in Korea. LAWYER GUILTY OF ASSAULT ON DREW PEARSON By Associated Press WASHINGTON. — A tt o r n e y Charles Patrick Clark was convicted in Municipal Court Friday on a charge of assaulting Columnist Drew Pearson in a two-punch fracas here June 18. The jury reached its verdict in 36 minutes after a two-day trial in which Clark, whose clients include the Spanish government, pleaded self defense. Sentencing was deferred until Tuesday. The maximum penalty for assault is a year in jail and $500 fine. Pearson testified Clark, without warning, hit him in the neck as he was leaving the Mayflowel Hotel dining room. Other witnesses said another punch grazed Pearson's shoulder. Clark testified he hadn't intended to hit Pearson, who had written critically of Clark's activity on behalf of the Spanish but the columnist I pumped tlii'ee wells dry as they battled two hours to control the blaze. The, old Security Bank building was empty but Mr. White was using his building for storage. An Opdyke resident reported this morning that "the whole village turned out to form a bucket brigade and help in the fire." Saucers Pop Up In Korea, Japan By Associated Press SEOUL — Those "flying saucers" have popped up in Korea and Japan. A Canadian destroyer recently reported sighting two such objects and recorded them on its radar, it was learned here today. A Navy report said 40 officers and crew members of the destroyer Crusader saw the "saucers" the night of July 10. All had the familiar qualities of the puzzling flying discs. The report, addressed to the commanders of the Far East Naval Forces and the Fifth Air Force said the ship's radar registered "fixes" on the objects. It placed them two miles high and seven miles away. The report said the objects disappeared before dawn. Tokyo, too, had a saucer report. Kosuke Miyazaki, 27, of the Central Meteoroligical Observatory said he saw a greenish-white thing with a tail flying through the sky Friday night.

The robbers, two of whom wore masks, entered the Bank of Lyons in late afternoon — just minutes before hundreds of workers in a nearby industrial area were expected to cash their paychecks. Three of the bandits herded 17 persons, including 12 employes, into a rear room while a fourth man went through the cages, scooping up all the currency into a paper sack. He did not enter the vault.

They knew we were not busy at the time, and they knew just where to go for the money." He said the bank on Friday keeps most of its currency in the cages, instead of the vaults, to handle payychecks. Belasick said there was no confusion during the holdup. The robbers were in the bank about three minutes. II Stratton Hits Spending Orgy By Democrats By Associated Press FLORA, 111.—William G. Stratton told a Clay County Fair audience Friday that Governor Stevenson's administration "has been on a wild-eyed spending orgy since he took office." Stratton, Republican candidate for governor, said of Stevenson's reported orders that his staff must not submit to pressures to hire employes before the November election: "He certainly can't add any more payrollers than he has already—there isn't enough money to pay them." Stratton's candidacy is nominally unopposed since Stevenson, now running for the presidency, withdrew his bid for reelection. Stevenson has said he fa\'ors Lt. Gov. Sherwood Dixon as his successor. The Demoo'atic state central committee is expected to pick a replacement candidate soon. CALL DROUGHT ONE OF WORST U.SmSTERS Seek Way to Save Livestock Herds in South and New Englqnd. By. Ai£:.»iatsd Pr«»S' WASHINGTON. — Agriculture Department officials today termed the drought in the South and New England one of the most serious economic disasters in the nation's history. Department officials explored new steps to alleviate the plight of farmers and to save livestock herds. The state of South Carolina, Massachusetts and Maine and nine more counties of Arkansas were added Friday to the department's growing list of drought disaster areas. The disaster area designation, which qualifies farmers for federal loans where local credit is unavailable, now applies to eight full states and large areas of Arkansas and Missouri. The other states are Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee.

SPRINGFIELD TO BE CENTER OF CAMPAIGN Sfevenson to Direct Strategy at Close-Hand and Orders Transfer From Washington. WYATT NAMED ADLArS MANAGER His Headquarters Will Also Be in Springfield; No Decision on Replacf- ment of McKinney. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111. — Gov. Adlai Stevenson's decision moving the Democratic partys national campaign headquarters to Springfield raised speculation today the presidential nominee plans to boss pre­ election strategy with hand-picked aides. With this announcement Friday that Wilson Wyatt of Louisville, Ky., would be his personal carji- paign manager, Stevenson dis- j closed the move of campaign head- . quarters from Wasiiington here. Wyatt told newsmen this was the first time the national campaign offices would not be located in the nation's capitol. i Political leaders immediately viewed the decision as one which would have Stevenson in closer contact with men of his own choosing who will run his campaign as he plans it. A statement by Wyatt, too, appeared to bear out this theoryt'/-,;,: "Since." the campaigUv ohviovato!*^. must be directed by Gov. Stevenson, the headquarters will be here and mine will be, too;" Wyatt said. McKinney Wants Out From Democratic National Committee chairman, F'rank McKinney, came the statement Friday night that he does not choose to remain in the job. It was a restatement of his feelings about the post, but McKinney said he would discuss party affairs with Stevenson in about a week. By tradition, the presidential nominee chooses the man he wants to direct the party. ~ . Stevenson said earlier this week that a decision on whether he would replace McKinney was one of the things "that would have to be resolved." He didn't say who would succeed McKinney, Wyatt, 46, once served as mayox of Louisville, and was federal housing expediter in 1946-1947. He also served as national chairman of Americans for Democratic Action, then entered law practice. Wyatt's appointment was agreed upon by Stevenson and Sen. John Sparlanan of Alabama, vice presidential nominee. ; •^^tevenson Friday invited three of the men he defeated for the presidential nomination to discuss campaign plans with him. The invitations went to Sen. Estes KM- fauver of Tennessee, Sen. Richaujfl Russell of Georgia and Averell Harriman. Douglas Is Visitor Among Friday's visitors at the executive mansion was Sen. Paul Douglas of Illinois, who backed Kefauver for the presidential nomination. Douglas said he had been asked to take an active part in the coming campaign. He said he would do so after a trip to Europe with his family, which he had planned several months ago. MT. V. SOLDIER BACK IN U.S. By Associated Press SEATTLE—Tlie Navy transport General R. L.
