MEETINGS ATTENTION SIR KNIGHTS A special conclave of Patton Commandery No. 69 will be held Thursday Nov. 6 at 7:30 p. m. Order of the Temple. Oscar Q. Stockton, E. C. Cecil N. Lovin, Rec. President Truman's home state of Missouri and seemed likely to have to content himself with the atomteed remnants of once-im pregnable Dixie. He won or was. loading In only nine Southern states with a meager 89 electoral votes. Elsenhower had clinched or was leading in 39 states, with 442 votes—176 more than the 26,6 needed for election. News of Elsenhower's .victory was hailed in the free world's capltols as indicating a contlnua tlon oftlon of American policy of resisting communism. The stock market went up. In his sweep, Elsenhower car ried two states the Republicans haven't been able to capture since 1924, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. He won or was out in front In 15 stats where, the Republicans haven't had a presidential victory since 1928—Arizona, California Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Mennesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington. But his landslide wasn't quite as widespread as that registered by Hoover, since Elsenhower couldn't break into West Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina as the former president did in 1928. The general's friend and one of his earliest presidential rooters, Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., con ceded defeat by his Democratic opponent, Rep. ohn F. Kennedy in the Massachusetts senatorial race. Republican Sen. James P. Kem of Missouri went down to defeat and Sen. Harry Cain of Washington was Irallinbg. Eisenhower carried Washington but Missouri was still in doubt. In Ohio, Democratic Gov. Frank Lausche won going away from Charles Tafl, brother of the senator, despite Eisenhower's hefty majority over Stevenson in the state. Jenner Wins On the other hand, Eisenhower's surge helped Sens. Joseph R. McCarthy oi Wisconsin and William E. Jenner of Indiana get reelected. Both were prime targets for Democratic attack in the campaign. Eisenhower demonstrated his personal popularity by sweeping all of the big and little states In the North and crashing into the South to pick off such traditionally Democratic states as Florida and Virginia. He was leading in Texas and had captured the border states of Oklahoma, Missouri and Maryland. Stevenson salvaged only Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Cnrolina, South Carolina and probably Kentucky, Louisiana and West Virginia. Tennessee was still in doubt. Strangely enough, Eisenhower proved stronger in some other Dixie states than in South Carolina, where Gov. James F. Byrnes endorsed him, and In Louisiana, where Gov. Robert Kennon backed the GOP nominee. Allan Shivers of Texas stood out as the only Democratic governor whose state followed him In supporting Eisenhower. a vacancy, defeating William J. Camp bell, D., 3,507 to 3,150. Gen.

Big Holiday in Ike's Home Town By Associated Prats ABILENE, , Kan.—It was New Year's Eve and the Fourth of July rolled into one in Gen. Eisenhower's home town Tuesday night. To crowds estimated upward of 3,500 gathered in downtown streets the whole evening, the announcement of Eisenhower's victory was the spark that set off the wildest jubiliation ever seen here.

In the closing days of the campaign, he pledged himself to go to, the scene of the Korean war for a personal inspection.

They had been with him all evening- Among them were Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York and Mrs. Dewey, ex-Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minneapolis, and many others.

Vernon police officers Jack Fairchild and Art Phillips at 2:45 this morning at the city hall. -"Where was it stolen?" the officers asked. "From the Bayer used car lot, and I am the one who took it," was the surprising answer ol the teenager. The youth, who identified himself as Jerome Essex of Bitley, Mich., took the officers to the coiner of McPherson and Kensington Avenue. There they found a 1938 model u»ed car. The teenager told the officers the following story: He and his brother had been in Arkansas, picking cotton, when he decided to quit, and return home. He arrived in Mt. Vernon about 2:00 p. m. yesterday and went to a movie. About 9:00 o'clock last night he stole the car off the used car lot. He said the car "quit" on him and he slept In it for awhile, then decided to turn himself in at the police station. The youth spent the balance of last night in jail.

That vou may be the servant and guardian of peace and make the day of victory a door of hope is my earnest prayer." For a few moments Stevenson stood on the brilliantly lighted platform of the ballroom, posing for the photographers and chatting with those nearby.

In answer to another question, he said he intended to devote himself to his duties as governor of Illinois and that perhaps he would take a rest. But he didn't say where his vacation place might be. Stevenson was in the ballroom for about seven minutes. Then he left and drove back to the mansion.
