Hayes. Four erewmemiwrj are ttitctin*. Five of the tanker's 10-nian •rew leaped Into the 200-foot wide waterway and paddled ashore. An- «4h«r was rescued from the water Flames visible tor rive miles en- lulfed the west-bound Hayes soon *(t*r the collision with the sleam- »h!p Barbara Lyltes shortly after midnight. At daybreak a column ot black «molce rolled lazily over Hie Delaware countryside from the still- burning tanker. The 270-fcot Hayes wa» carrying 100,000 gallons of high'oclane'gasolme. No one tried !o put the fire out. Firemen were miable to get close •nough to battle the flames. Mud banks and woods border the canal. The crush occurred near Summit Bridge, Del., about 20 mll« aouth of Wilmington »nd halfway icross the IS-mile canal which connects the Delaware River with to* upper Chesapeake Bay. Th» missing rnfa wtn Identified an RE. Oakes, first aMUitaat engineer; Weyland Ellis, iccond M- sislant engineer; Olltt Lindee, deckhand; and George Carter, *«a- man. "As (he I.ykes got almost up to us slie took a sheer and crashed into our port side. She opened up our No. 1 tank and the iparks caused the ship to catch fire. Fumes from the tank blew back into the galley. The stove set the fumes afire. As the fume* went up the tank exploded. "I steered (he ship toward the south shore of the canal until she touched shore. Then five of us jumped. The other five men were below decks either in their rooms or in the engine room into which their quarters opened." BT.TTHEVTT.T.K (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 'Ike's Relation with Truman Group May Force Statement By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (.ft—Gen. DwigtH D. EisenhoK'ai's official association with the Truman administration has become such an jssue in Republican presidential battling it soon may require a public statement by [he general. Supporters of Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio threw out the suggestion again yesterday that Eisenhower's military connections with official Washington might hamper him in attacking the Truman record-if he wins the GOP nomination. Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas, 'director of Eisenhower campaign headquarters, took some pains to try to refute this in a Mitchell, S.D., speech. Carlson' said Eisenhower "has spoken often nn<l plainly against the administration and its fumbling, ils trend toward socialism and its playing of group against group." He quoted a H-month-old letter in which Eisenhower said his friends are "quite well aware of the extreme degree in which I differ with some of our governmental foreign and domestic policies of the past years." Many politicians believe that when Eisenhower returns to this country in June he will have to be more specific in criticisms of the policies with which he does not, agree. But if he makes any such full- scale attack on the Truman foreign policies as that in which Taft has engaged, it will surprise many Democrats, as well as some Republicans. T\vo possible Democratic presidential candidates—Vice President Alhen Barkley and Gov. Atllai E. Stevenson of Illinois—have told a reporter they do not believe Eisenhower's foreign policy views are greatly different from their own. The indications were clear they believe that, if the general becomes the Republican nominee, domestic issues will become paramount In the campaign. Many of (he delegates to the Republican National Convention in Chicago in July «re likely to want « candidate who. will rip into the Trumnn record at borne and abroad. Many of them believe they lost the 19-18 election because Oov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York didn't campaign vigorously enough. While some like Oov. Earl Warren of California have contended the Republicans can't win In No- ember by just being against what thr. Democrats have done, the anti- me-too psychology still looks strong within the ranks of the convention delegates. Taft gave this another boost yesterday by declaring at a conference with a group of women that.if he is nominated he won't make "the kind of a 'me-too' campaign conducted by Gov. Dewey in 1948 and which I have no doubt he will recommend to Gen. Elsenhower." NEW Ajr Conditioned By Refrigeration "Your Community Center" MANILA, ARK. Matinees Sat. & Sun.
