CARDUI MONTHLY CRAMPS CHANGE OF LIFE BY RUSSELL LANE CHICAGO. (AP).—Illinois, with 27 electoral votes at> stake in next Tuesday's presidential election, remains in the doubtful column. Although Illinois is the home state of Democratic Gov. Adlai Stevenson and delivered him a record 572,000-vote plurality four years ago, it is a good even bet now as to whether he can carry the state against Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, the Republican candidate. . Eisenhower is given a slight edge in one state-wide newspaper poll and in a survey of newsmen who previously thought Stevenson was ahead. Other observers see the state leaning slightly to Stevenson. All are agreed that it probably will be very close. President Truman garnered the state, in 1948, by the slim margin of 33,612 votes of the 4,075,090 cast. It was conceded that Stevenson's overwhelming gubernatorial victory delivered Illinois for Truman. Democratic national tickets have carried the 6tate since 1932, although a Republican governor was elected in 1940 and 1944. The GOP presidential candidate won Illinois' electoral votes in four contests from 1916 to 1928. Downstate is Republican Traditionally, the Illinois electorate is divided' into sharply- defined party strongholds. Chicago, with approximately one half of the state's population, is Democratic. The rest of the state, with exceptions such as the urban industrial area across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, votes Republican. The Republicans are basing their predictions of victory for General Eisenhower in Illinois upon the expectation of an unusually large vote in the 101 downstate counties and in the heavily Republican sub­ urban portions of Cook county Chicago is in Cook County. For a rule of thumb estimate on how the Illinois vote is going as election night returns come in, it would appear that Stevenson could be considered to be leading if returns from Cook County show him getting 55 per cent of the votes or more. If Eisenhower's tally runs better than 55 per cent downstate, it would appear he would win. Stronfr GOP Stat© Ticket Eisenhower's Illinois fortunes may bo closely linked with those of the GOP state ticket which is headed by State Treasurer William G. Stratton, 38, the candidate for governor whose vote- getting record is impressive. The GOP state ticket is conceded to be strong. When Governor Stevenson step;- ped out of the role of state Democratic ticket leader, his place was taken by Lt.-Gov. Sherwood Dixon 56-year-old, downstate lawyer with little campaigning experience. Dixon has followed Stevenson's 1948 campaign technique of intensive travel for handshaking. Stratton lias campaigned largely against the record of Stevenson's administration. There is no contest for U. S. Senator in Illinois this election. Worry of FALSE TEETH Slipping or Irritating?

Clil- forri Hope of Kansas says President Truman forgets George Washington and Andrew Jackson when he claims no professional general has ever made n good president. Rep. Hope, member of a Republican "Truth Squad" following in the wake of the President's seven- speech, whistle-stop through Minnesota, said Tuesday night: "In all, 11 generals have become presidents of the United States and we never have had a war during their terms." "And that," said Rep. Walter Judd of Minnesota .another member of the five-man team, "is because generals try to build strength and unity while softhearted civilian leaders try to woo their enemies with appeasement." Other GOP members of I lie "Truth Squad", a replica of that which followed Trumnn on his recent Western trip, are Sens. Andrew Sehoeppe! iKan.l; Francis Case (S. D.) and Edward Thye (Minn.) Thye, discussing statements made in Truman .speeches Tuesday-about the Republican small business and farm programs, said: "The Republicans took the lead in aid to small business. "The Democratic record in the farm field is 'spotty,' with Truman himself having requested the repeal of the tax on colored oleomargarine. The president also asked for repeal of section 104 of the defense production act by the Siiid congress. "This repeal opened the door to imports of foreign dairy pro- duets." Against the President's statement that "if Republican policy had been followed, we would have lost Europe and all Asia to Communism by now," Schoeppel-said: "We have lost Korea, China, Manchuria and Chiang Kai Shek's help. We lost Poland, Czechoslovakia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Eastern Germany. The total in Europe and Asia is about 800 million people behind the Iron Curtain because of the New Deal administration policies." Only an old-timer can.remem­ ber when "going like 60" was pretty fast. ^NU State Studying Mine Roof Falls By Aisoelatod Pr«s URBANA, 111. — Roof falls, No. 1 killer in the coal mines, are being studied from the geological standpoint, a state scientist said today. Dr. M. M. Leighton. chief of the State Geological Survey, said the survey's project is focused on geological factors which influences the strength or weakness of mine roof materials. Year in and year out, falls of coal or rock from mine tunnel ceilings account for about half of the coal mine deaths. Research is being carried on in mines producing from the No. 6 coal bed of Central and Southern Illinois, Leighton said.
