A partisan crowd of 9,240 sat In Ladd Memorial Stadium to watch the Panthers completly stymie the Blytheville Club. The Chicks, suffering their first defeat of the season after four triumphs, and their initial loss since Oct. 30 of last year, were held to a net of 15 yards rushing and two firsl downs by the huge Murphy forward wall. The Panthers exploded for three quick touchdowns in the second period, and added another convincing pah- pair in the final 12 minutes to smash the Arkansas visitors Blytheville's only touchdown came on a dazzling 89-yard kick-off return by Danny Edgmon following Murphy's third six-pointer in the second quarter. Sixth for Murphy Murphy, in chalking up its sixth straight victory of the season and Its eighth over a two-season span was in complete command all the way. The Panthers, using the split- T with crisp perfection, kept possession of the pigskin most of the game. And while Murphy's potent offense was striking away at the Chick's defense for five touchdowns the Panthers' stout defense Bastions were ocmpletely checking the single-wing attack of the invading Chicks. The Panthers rolled up 246 yard^ on the ground to the Chicks, 15, and garnered 54 in the air while yielding a like amount of yardage to Blytheville via the oson? method. The panthers had nine first downs to the visitors' two. The Panthers marched 83 yards for their first score, but had to move only 31 and 38 yards respectively for their next two, all In the second period. In the final period, the Murphians covered distances of 82 arid 42 yards to reach pav dirt. Blytheville's vaunted' attack was never able to get moving against the Panthers. Meanwhile, slick senior quarterback Bobby Jack- Reds Claim U.S. Behind Aggression By TOM HOGE UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. tf) — Russia accused the United States last night of aggression against Red China and called on the U.N. General Assembly to put a stop to it. The United Slates promptly branded the charge a He. In a letter to Dr. Eelco N. Van Kleffens, assembly president, Russia's Andrei Vishinsky held the United States responsible for coastal attacks on the Chinese mainland and ship seizures near Formosa, scat of the Chine Nationalist regime. He asked the .Assembly to condemn the alleged American aggression. A quick replying statement issued by chief U.S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. declared: "To say that the United States ha.s engaged in any aggressive action in the area of Formosa or anywhere else is a plain lie." Vishinsky sent his letter one day after the U.N. circulated a complaint from Red Chinese Premier Chou En-lai charging the United States with aggression and asking the Assembly to call a halt to American aid to Chinese Nationalists. son was expertly maneuvering his split-T forces against the dazed Chicks* defense. Jackson had the help of some great running by Tommy Hubbard, Buck Richards Oliver Sinclair and Bobby Martin in sticking the defeat on the Chicks. Murphy's big line smotherec most of the Chicks' running attempts, and it was only through the air that Blytheville enjoyed even moderate success. The nearest Blytheville came to the Panthers' goal line was when they reached the Murphy 43. Three times the Chicks barely' edged across the mid-field stripe, bui never could they get beyond the 43-yard line. Most of the time, the Chicks were kept in their own territory, and only some-fine punting by big Kenneth Fisher kept the Panthers backed away as much as th'ey were. Edgmon was the shining light in defeat for the Chicks with his nifty TD dash on the kickoff. Freddie Akers and Bobby Jones and Fisher were other satellites in the game but outclassed losers' backfield. Sfarred Up Front Jimmy Gee, John Fong and Freddie Rounsayall were top performers for the Chicks up front.

A radio message said the ship was held for almost an hour yesterday before being allowed to proceed. No damage or casualties were reported. The message said the warship demanded Information on the Inch- kilda's nationality, cargo and destination. It ordered the freighter to keep clear of Shanghai port. She was bound from Foochow to Shanghai with a cargo of timber. The Inchkilda was fired on off Matsu Island In August by Nationalist Chinese shore batteries. On Sept. 9 she was caught in Amoy during a Nationalist Chinese air attack but damage. escaped with slight of touchdowns in the second quarter. The Panthers punched over three six-pointersnn less than five minutes, and racing against the clock, narrowly missed on a fourth try when Bobby v Jones intercepted a Jackson pass ^on his own three yard line and brought it out to the Chicks' 14 wth less than 20 seconds remaining before the halftime intermission. The Panthers went the length of the field to mark up their first touchdown, moving 86 yards In 15 plays. Prior to this first successful TD march, the Chicks had three opportunities to move the ball, but couldn't make any noticeable advance against the Panthers' defense, the Chicks were forced t.o punt after three plays on two of their series of downs, and on the. other, notched up two first downs in a drive that netted the bare 20 yards. However, the Panthers held on their own 43 and Fisher was forced to punt. It was after Blytheville's third series of downs that Murphy be- jjan its first six-point promenade, the drive starting in the closing minutes of the first period and culminating with a touchdown in ;he second quarter with eight minutes and 27 seconds still remaining played in the second chuk- ker. Oliver Sinclair and Buck Richards got the drive under-way with bursts through the Blytheville for- ewall, but a 22-yard aerial from Jackson to Richards kept it from stalling. The overhead, partially defected by Jones, fell into Richard's wtstretched arms and he sped to -he Chicks' 36 before being brought to the earth. Prom the 36, Hubbard was the )ig gun in the Murphy push, the lard-running halfback carrying the pigskin on five of the ensuing ~ : ~ plays. Hubbard needed to but one yard for the game's first score after he had plunged two yards for a first on the Blytheville one. He went over right tackle lor the .score. Richards failed to run over the extra point after taking a pitchout from Jackson. Fumble Costly Two minutes later, Murphy had tacked its second six points on the Scoreboard. The Panthers got the opportunity shortly after the ensuing kickoff when Fisher fumbled and Murphy's Roy Davis, a guard recovered on the Chicks' 31. A line smash by Hubbard netted seven yards to the 24. Here, Jackson flipped a pass to wingman Ray Henderson who was all along on the Biytheville 15. And it was an easy matter for the lanky Mobilian to ramble unmolested across the double stripe. The scoring play covered 24 yards and put the Panthers In front, 12-0, with 6:26 left In the second quarter. Fisher's 31-yard punt that went out of bounds on the Blytheville 38, after the Chicks couldn't move the Pigskin following the kick-off set the Panthers in position to punch over their third touchdown, it came in three short plays. Hubbard went around right end for one and then hit over right tackle for n and a first down on STUDENTS SEE HOLY LAND EXHIBIT — Two sixth grade classes of Central Grade School spent most of the afternoon yesterday viewing the minutely delailed panorama of the Holy Land, now on display at 124 w.

ARROWSMITH INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — President Eisenhower bid for the nation's farm vote last night, saying election of a Republican Congress will help assure American farmers "a foundation of enduring prosperity." Speaking to a wildly cheering, capacity crowd of 15,000 at: Butler University, the President jabbed at the Truman administration for what he termed the farmers' "serious loss in Buying power" in 1951-52. And—in a separate speech at a imaller rally of GOP colleagues— IB sounded a challenge to Rep'ib- icans to spur ' 'our horses . . . and to get to going" in the party's drive to maintain control of Congress in the Nov. 2 elections. Eisenhower stopped over in the Indiana capital In the midst of the Farm Belt on his way back New York Commerce Threatened by Strike NEW YORK (AP) — A truck strike, idling more than 23,000 drivers, hit New York City and a wide surrounding area today and threatens to choke off the region's commerce. The AFL Teamsters Union called drivers covered in special contracts the Chicks' 2«. Jackson' then faked a handoff. Stepped over his own left guard and with a sudden and deceptive burst of speed, outlegged the stunned Blytheville defense all the way Into the end zone. Murphy ran the count up to 15-0 when big Bennle Castleberry, a 220-rxnmd tackle, sent a placement kick spinning straight through the uprights.

Emergency mediation essions failed, to avert, the soiled- led walkout. Mayor Robert F. Wagner of Jew York, who vieved the strike s "disastrous" for the city's trade, ought vainly for a last-minute de- ay to permit further negotiations. 'canister leaders turned down his ppeal, saying the strle had already been postponed twice for a total of 45 days, with no agreement in sight. The strike affects all metropolitan New York and Long Island, reaches deep into New Jersey and up to Poughkeepsie in New York state. New Jersey is affected as far south as Trenton. The truck strike is expected to have little influence during the weekend business lull. It's main impact will come Monday or later. Freight blocked by the strike includes food for major chain stores, supplies for defense factories, new.sprint and exports and imports. Without trucks to carry cargos from railroad and steamship terminals shipping will eventually ie jammed behind huge piles'of unmoved freight. Some Items Move Certain items handled by truck i their 25-cent demand. will continue to move, however. These include fuel, milk, meat fruits and vegetables, bakery goods, building supplies, and beer. The strike was called by 12 teamster locals whose members work for approximately 3,000 firms in New York and New Jersey. Asked if the stoppage might spread to otner parts of the country, the union's chief economist. David Kaplan, replied: "If there is a trucking strike in one area it is difficult to prevent it in others." The union seeks r.n hourly increase of 20 cents in wages and 5 cents in pension and welfare benefits. The last employer offer was a package increase of 10 cents an hour. Hourly wages now range from SI.77 for helpers to $2.21 lor drivers of trailer trucks. A special citizens' committee appointed by Mayor Wagner sought unsuccessfully to arrange a compromise on a 17-cent increase this tional year and an 8-cent Increase next year. For a time there were reports that certain union groups favored accepting this proposal, but later top tcam.ster negogiators declared they would not come down from to hurricane - lashed Washington from Denver, where he ended an eight-week work and piny vacation yesterday.

During the first 21 months of his administration, he said, "we 1 have gone far toward building for our agriculture ft foundation of enduring prosperity, in an America at last at peace." Farm I'm^ram Lauded He said there never hnd been more constructive farm legislnlion than that pnsscd by the GOP-controlled 83rd Congress, and he blamed "the old farm law" for n "steady decline in farmers' buying power." On the speakers platform were Secretary of Agriculture Benson, whom he warmly praised, and Republican candidates from the F'avm Belt. There had been reports from Washington that GOP leaders counseled against having Benson on the platform, presumably because; of some Republican opposition to the administration's controversial farm prognim.

Hurricane Toll Mounts To 69 in Atlantic Area Storm Called One of Worst This Century By TIIK ASSOCIATED PRESS Hurricane Hazel, exacting a death toll of at least 69 while ravaging an eight-state area and (he District of Columbia, caused hundreds of families in the Pittsburgh, Pa., area to fee their homes today as the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers rose to what was feared would be flood stage. The raging waters, caused by torrential rains, later began to recede. But like the rest of areas which felt Hazel's wrath, the Pittsburgh section, reported untold millions of dollars In property damage. No deaths or injuries were known immediately.
