SPRINGFIELD, 111. — Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson look off from Capitol Auport at 9:18 a.m. CST toflay for Denver ^fiere he will open a campaign tour of the West. He expects to hit nine states in nine days, traveling mostly by air. In at least one speech, and possibly others, the Democratic presidential candidate intends to carry, the fight to the Republicans, answering arguments, and attempting to mow down some of their major contentions. The Denver address tonight will be aimed at the GOP iiatlle 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 not answered in detail Republican accusations about corruption in government, nor taken public notice of any direct attacks on himself. In passing, the governor has flipped a few political darts at the opposition. Mostlv, however, He conCfhtratert uh ine principles of his own program. Tlie 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 of the Republicans." Wyatt described the reports of Eisenhower's high powered drive through the South as merely "interesting." He added, "It hasn't worried us." Sen. George Smatiters of Florida took a different, view. He said "Eisenliower made a big impression. It certainly means he's got some strength." The Florida Democrat went on to say he-considers it a "possibility" that Eisenhower might crack the solid South and carry Florida. In a conference here with the governor Thursday Smathers urged him to campaign in Florida. Smathers came out of the governor's office with a prepared statement, in which he said some nice things about Stevenson and declared he would "support him." But who|i reporters asked if he would campaign for the governor Smathers said he had used the word "support — whatever that might mean to you." He said he does not agree with Stevenson's position on civil rights legislation, the tidelands oil issue and Senate Rule 22;.the rule requires a 60-40 affirma'tive vot^ to shut off a debate. Stevenson, along with some 65 correspondents accompanying him on the Western trip, watched a television broadcast Thursday night of Eisenhower's Philadelphia speech. The political writers were guests in the executive mansion for dinner. They deserted the tables en mass, however, when the broadcast of Eisenhower 's appearance began. So did Stevenson, leaving before the ice crcarti appeared. The governor, and the reporters, crowded into a small den where the television set was placed. Stevenson smiled several times as the speech proceeded but he made no comment. G. Koser Johnson He was 65 years, six months and 21 days of age. For many years he owned and operated the J. N.

By Associalcd Press KASSON — DODGE CENTER, Minn.—Ike and Adlai will have an "18-acre audience" for their Saturday speeches at the national plowing contest. Site for the talks by the two presidential candidates is a natural aqiphitheater of that size—but without any seats for the spectators. W. M. Roberts of Rochester, director of operations, said his committee would be' "more than satisfied" if the expected crowd of just over 100,000 shows up. Parking is free in 11 spacious, open fields §urroundii|g the speakr ing site. From parking lots' as far as a mile away, tractor- drawn wagons will provide "taxi" haulage to the main arena. Roberts admits one prospective concessionaire is worrying him, "Fellow called me on the phone Thursday and asked what we wanted for exclusive rights to sell raincoats and umbrellas on the grounds for the day," he reported. "Now, brother, rain here Saturday would be like tossing a snowstorm at the Atlantic City bathing beauty show. "Nope, we haven't made any deal with him yet."

Mrs. Snee Mrs. McSherry ana Ann Teresa had lived in her apartment for the last eight months. Golden said Miss McSherry told him that the child had been sick for years, had never walked and never had been treated by a ph.v- sici^n. Miss McSherrj', police said, told them she believed the child was aliv^ when the Louisiana trip began. While Miss McSherry was being questioned, another child of Mrs. Snee, seven-year-old Susan, was taken to the juvenile home. Planned Quiet Funeral Mrs. Snee told officers that she had been taking Ann Teresa to relatives in Hammond. Upon learning the child was dead, Mrs. Snee said, she decided to have a quiet funeral with no formalities or church services.

By Associated Press CHICAGO.—Farmers are going to have to make a lot of hay if they went to get occupational draft deferments. A new method of estimating the productiveness of individual farm workers was announced today by Col. Paul G. Aarmstrong, Illinois Selective Service Director. "We are now able to determine, on the basis of actual production, whether or not a farmer merits deferment from military service," Col. Armstrong said. The method uses "work units" to show the amount of labor required to produce a given quan- ity of farm products. One unit equals one man's labor for a ten- hour day. As an example. Selective Service says it take .022 work unit.s to produce a bushel of corn and .18 units to produce 100 pounds of milk. No farm worker will be considered for deferment unless he performs a certain minimiftn number of work unit.s per year. Col. Armstrong said. The required minimum will b^ detei-mincd by the local board in each county after consultation with the county's agriculture mobilization committee.

Eisenhower was off to a roaring "crusade" for world peace today 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 17,600 jam-packed into Convention Hall here Thursday night, the GOP 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." 10-Point Peace Program On that theme—and offering a 10-point peace program of his own •Eisenhower formally launched his presidential campaign. And today he Carried his fight westward, to Chicago and a five-day tpur of the Midwest _JouQhina_j.I|3J3aoii5v'' In ChicagbV'he was scheduled to meet at noon with Republican leaders and candidates for state offices in Illinois, Michigan and Indiana, Tonight he was to talk vrith ward and precinct workers in Cook county (Chicago). The Philadelphia speech — beamed across the nation by television and radio—climaxed a day of thuiiderous ovations for Eisenhower aitd his wife, Mamie. 260,000 In Streets It began when an estimated 250, 000 or more people thronged the downtovvm streets of Philadelphia to cheer the GOP candidate on his arrival from New York City. It reached a peak when Eisenhower stepped onto the flood-lighted stage at Convention Hall while waves of applause roUed down from an audience packed to the rafters. ' Gov. John S. Fine of Pennsylvania had started out with an introduction but his voice was drowned out by roars as "Eisenhower stepped from the wings of the stage with a big smile on his face.' Eisenhower lost no time in lashing out at the Democratic administration. He set the crowd to cheering by saying: "I have said and will say again and again that there is one issue in this campaign. That is the mess in Washington." Bungle Close to War Then Eisenhower charged the administration "has bungled us perilously close to World War III." He said, "We will dedicate ourselves to a program for peace aimed to prevent future Koreas and the honorable end of this Korean war." But he emphasized that although there is "need to bring hope" to the world's enslaved people—it must be done only through peaceful means. He said firmly, "We shall never be truculent—but we shall never appease." He rejected isolationism, and called for "mutually profitable" world trade relations, and "unwavering support of the United Nations"—the latter plea getting only weak applause. The first move toward world peace, he insisted, was to put an administration i n Washington "which we ourselves can trust." He called, secondly, for a government in which "there will be no curtain of evasion, of suppression, or of double talk between ourselves and the people." Then he ticked off these other points in his plan for peace: The establishment of "clear and positive" peace goals and an end to what he called the "patchwork, crazy quilt operations" in foreign affairs. The winning of allies which "are necessary for the survival of our system." A program "to aid by every peaceful means, but only by peaceful means," the right to live In freedom. ?
