Klein (United I'ress Staff C'orres|>i)iiilt>ni) CONVENTION HALL, 1'hiladel- pliia, June 'a. tlll>>-scn. Kenneth s. Wherry o( Npbniska set the Republicans to roaring today. For the fiisl time since this liv- publlcan National Convention started on Monday, a speaker gave I the delegates what apparently they | were looking for—an old-fa.shion- j cd, rip-snorting, name-calling, victory-claiming, milscpuuiidincj 1X )li- tical harangue. He Hung his amis, shouted and worked up a healthy sweat. He tugged President Tinman ss about the •most-'vetoing president we've ever had." Then lie roused the del- csatos to the noisiest cheering so far by adding: "But we'll veto that fellow right off his balcony." The Nebraska delegation save their favorite a good show at the end of his speech. For the first • time in this convention a batch | or delegates put on a complete. I 'roimd-thc-hall parade behind their I state standard. "We want a fieMing man for president—we want Wherry," the Nebruskaus shouted. Although it was loud and enthusiastic, the demonstration was slrlet- • ly t> one-state show. I Even before his speech Wherry came out bobbing, weaving and ducking. | So the picture men, (lie boy.s ( 10 .shoot at the drop of a period, mid : to do it all over again—a couple of times. j In this case, the Sonator from | Nebraska, about to address the lle- ; publican National Convention,drop- ped his manuscript. He did It twice. And twice, while he was rtiirtlnif to retrieve it. the flash bulbs went off and the photographers r.\|x>sed their negatives with a lot of blank spaco. The sccoud day of the convention had got off to a slow start In a hall that looked like a football sladliim niter (he game w!> s over But the photographers had lo have their pictures, so the schedule was slowed ngnin while Wherry gave Time (i few gestures and li flrsl- shnkc or two, not (o mention « couple of bobs and weaves. The double-retake killed considerable time, but Wherry finally not to give his speech -after temporary chairman Dwlglit H. ore™ had introduced him as "one of |he greatest voices in. the Republican Party." i This Introduction cheered the Nc- I biMskjm. jiud it produced the first demonstration of the day, complete M'llb shoitts and slundnrd waving. Wherry's siwcch was the first old-fnshloiied political rouser of the convention. HP did even belter for i Die dclcgnte.s than he had for the . photographers. And he shouted ! where other speakers had merely j talked. He e<)t a lonelsh roar of approval when lie declared that tin- cr,-- vcntlon would nominate a ticket i "that will move out- party into the I White House In 1949." ' And he played to his audience. I Once after the dnlogutes cheered j one of his heavier blasts against the administration, he remarked: I "You want some more I've uot i It right here." aiul f Unmanned Radio-Guided Plane Crashes in Sea guided B m . ., Jun( , i')— An umnanmxl ratlin- plane « nt out of' con o! a » " rac " Ce Ilight ovc '' Cane S , ? ay am( Intcr ™* re- to have crashed Jnto A radio report from the fishing ££?,***?

Public Health service ! said today tlmt the host, precaution npiinst poliomyelitis is rest nnd avoidance of crowds. Dr. Charles Armstrong, cK«f of i the Communicable Disea.s?s Branch ! said that during the hot, monliis, tlie polio season, children should not be allowed to over-exert themselves. Case histories show, he said, that a large majority of children have been stricken after an arduous period of play. The biggest carrier of the polio virus, he said, is the human. Although the common house fly is believed to be a carrier, it is not known just how important it is in the spread of the virus. Dr. Armstrong saici children should not be allowed to swim in crowded pools. He frowns on movies in the polio season, too. So far tills year, there have been l,44a recorded cases of polio.* This compares with 1,094 cases in the like period last year. About half of the total thus far this year were reported from the .states "of Texas, California, and North Carolina Dr. Armstrong said there is no truth in the common belief that once a child has recovered from polio he Is immune for Ihe rest of his iiie. There have been a number of "repeals" reported, he said.
