Soviet estimates have used Ihe round figure of 200 million. Even so. Red China now boasts more lhan three Urns as many popl a hr "big" Communist brother, to whom she has been exporting much-needed food In return for military am! industrial «UI. The 1050 census in the United States showed 150.B07.3lil people, but recent estimates have pushed this ahovo [he 100 million mark. The Peipintf radio said the 1053 census was taken by the State Bureau of Statistics. It said the census did not reach Formosa, where the Chinese Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek holds RWny. nor "a few border areas and in regions where local elections had not yt taken place." Of the total. Pelplne said, 574.205,940 were counted through direct census while the remainder 27,732,095 was arrived at by "indirect census." Dual Clth.cnslilp Pelplng said latter figure inclucl- *.l 7,501,298 Chinese on Formosa 11,591.296 Chinese residing or study- Ing abroad and 8,397,477 In the remote border areas where elections have yet to be held. Many Chinese living outside China hold dual citizenship under Chinese liuv—that ol China and ol the country In which they live. The Chinese population now makes up almost one fourth of the human race. The Chinese Nationalists, iislni; estimates not unlike those nf 150 years apo, arrived at the figure used for many years of '150 million people. After World War II this figure was increased by s o in e sources to 475 million. When the Communists took over In 1049 they adopted this estimate. Only recently have they be^un speaking ol a larscr number in their broadcasts.

HP denounced the election as a farce and called for a voters' boycott, Batista, ihe one-time army scr- Kftstnt revolutionary who forced his way brick to the top in a 1952 coup, countered this attack in a television speech. He said Grau pulled out. "because he knows he cannot v.'m"and urged a. full turnout. There was a flurry of minor vio- rnco in the night. Two unidentified persons drove by navy headquarters in Havana and fired several shots. The guards fired back. No one. was reported hit.

The Cili/ens for Clean Eelectioas Committee, headed by Dr. George Branscum. a Little Rock dentist, quotes Fan bus as saying his con- necfion with the communist srhool has been cleared by the FBI. Fail- bus denies he said this. Saturday night Faubua displayed a telegram from Sen. Johnston <D- SCt nf the U. S. Semite Post Office and Civil Service Committee. The telegram said Fan bus had been cleared by agents of the Civil Service before lie was named postmaster at Huntsville. The telegram made no mention of Commonwealth Colk'pe, however. Democrats have made no secret nf thf fuel that Rommel is married to the daughter of Harvey C. Couch, one of the founders of AP&L. The power company found itself in the position of a political football Ins I- summer when it asked tor a $3.900.000 annual rate tnt-rense. Faubus rode the issue hard during the primary campaign, charging that Cherry could stop the increase, if he would. Remind recently sold his one .share of AP&L stock. Cherry Quiet When the stale Public Service Commission threw out AP&L's rate increase request last week, Remind said he was "delighted." He said he planned to re-appoint CJov. Cherry's Public Service Commission. After spiking- rumors that he , would run against Faubus as an j independent, Gov, Cherry has stay- i e out of the campaign. He has not campaigned and has not said how he will vote. But he says, "I am a Democrat." Both candidates predict victory lor themselves. Faubus, a former postmaster at Hunt.sville, has had a varied career in his 45 years. Largely self-educated, he also has worked as a rural school teacher, a lumber worker, a county official and newspaper publisher. He was an executive assistant and later highway director under former Gov. Sid McMath. Remind, an insurance agent before his election as mayor of Little Rock, comes from- a Republican family of lout; standing in Arkansas. His great-uncle, the late H. L. Remmel, was for many years Republican national committeeman, nnd ran for governor himself. He was defeated by Jeff Davis, the only governor who ever got three terms. Three proposed constittlonal amendments and one referred act also will be on the ballot.

Stevenson saiU in a New York telecast Eisenhower had adopted material which "has been standard Communist propaganda for years. . . . The President himself has affirmed the proposition that our prosperity has been .achieved in the past only at the price of war and bloodshed." Steven.son also derided Eisenhower's statement that election of a Democratic-controlled Congress <:ould result in a "cold war" in Washington. "There can be no war colder, or hotter, than the internal conflict within the Republican party." Stevenson said. Nixon, accusing: Stevenson of making: a "hysterical, scurrilous and vicious" attack on Eisenhower, said he planned a large-scale revision of his speech tonight. "Mr, Stevenson , . . made one of the most vicious attacks through innuendo on President Eisenhower last night that I have ever heard," Nixon told newsmen in Denver. "They can make attacks against me. but when they talk about the President that's a different thing." N ixon also dispatched a telegram to Stevenson accusing him of "following your usual tactics of covering up the record and failing to aaswer the facts by screaming 'smear, slur and slander.' " Nixon said In Spokane, Wash., Saturday that the Democrats were never .able to produce prosperity in peacetime, adding that "it can truly be stated that Truman-1 y p e policies meant either war or hard times for America." Preliminary tests indicated that food served to Nixon in a Seattle hotel, but not eaten by him, was not poisoned as an anonymous telephone caller had said. The vice president attributed it to a "crank and a prank." Final Debate Republican National Chairman Leonard Hall and his Democratic counterpart, National Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell, had a final televised debate yesterday. Hall contended that the GOP has brought the nation, to a peacetime peak of prosperity with more than 62 million persons employed, and he added: "And we don't need a war to keep them at work." Mitchell said the administration is "so- one-sided" in favor of business and industry that a Democratic Congress 1$ essential to "represent all. of the people." Meanwhile, the spotlight swung 01. 11 Senate races where Senate control appeared likely to be decided. Six of these seats now are held by Republicans and five by Democrats in a Senate that is di- vided 40 Republican*, 46 Democrats and 1 Independent, Sen, Wayne Morse of Oregon. Since Morse has said he will voU with the Democrats, the latter" need a net gain of only two to take over. The 11 contests — most of them extremely close—are being waged to a finish in California, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois,, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon and Wyoming. Fresh reports gathered by Associated Press reporters in the field and by telephone indicate Democrats are leading in four races where they could gain a seat from the Republicans and in four others where Democratic senators are involved. Republicans were reported giVen the edge in one contest where they could pick up a Democratic seat and leading in two others where GOP seats are involved. Although any of several other races could provide upsets, the forecasts in these critical races pointed toward a possible hairline division of party strength in the Senate. The House,, where the Democrats need three votes to gain control from the Republicans, might swing by a bigger margin of 10 to 25 votes difference in party strength. But party officials said privately they do not believe there will be any change of landslide proportions. And it was possible that the Senate might remain In the hands of the Republicans while the House might go Democratic. The House division now is 219 Republicans, 215 Democrats and 1 independent, crediting vacancies to the party which last held them. 14 Die in North Africa TUNIS, Tunisia WPi — Terrorist murders and a guerrilla clash killed at least 14 persons in French North Africa over the weekend. P-l or Jump Strike Closes 12 Legal Dilemma Bypassed In Sheppard Trial CLEVELAND (ifI — The Sheppard murder trial temporarily bypassed a legal dilemma over a Juror wltn a purported police record today, and went ahead with the business ot 'finding two alternate jurors. The disputed juror, James R, Manning, a real estate agent and father of three, showed up In his regular seat this morning, hunching forward in his chair and nervously staring straight ahead. The prosecution says Manning failed to disclose he was convicted on a morals charge 11 years ago and this could mean having to start the trial of Dr. Samuel Sheppard all over again. Manning's pastor. Rev. G. R. Naumann, appeared, in the court this morning, too, and talked with Judge Edward Blythin briefly before proceedings began. The Rev. Naumann, pastor of St. Luke's Evangelical Lutheran Church, told reporters ' Manning want* to be excused "with as little legal difficulty as possible." "He'll try to get off the jury without any commotion, if that can be done," said Naumann. He added nothing conclusive came of his conference with the judge. Crank Warns Nixon SEATTLE (iP\ — An anonymous telephone call, which said poisoned food had been delivered to Vice President Nixon's hotel room here Saturday night, appeared today to have been the work of a crank. Burl C- Cline, Secret Service agent in charge of the Seattle office, said "nothing has turned up so far" in laboratory tests of the food made by a Seattle firm.
