Candidate Profiles Police Trap Fails to Net Wanted Man PACIFIC, Mo. i* -- Roadblocks, bloodhounds and a patrol plane failed Thursday to trap one of the FBI's 10 most wanted fugitives, William Merle Martin, in rugged country near here. The all-out manhunt began Wednesday night after Martin, 42, was believed sighted during a wild automobile 'chase,by 'state highway patrolmen. :: The fugitive, believed armed, is sought in the slaying of Deputy Sheriff Willard C a r v e r , near Qlathe, Kan., last June 23. Martin fled into a cornfield 40 miles west of St. Louis after a pursuing patrolman had forced his car into a ditch. Three bloodhounds joined an all- night search by state highway trooper and FBI agents. At daybreak a highway patrol plane joined the hunt. But the bloodhounds lost the trail after going about a half mile into the woods, circling back to the highway. The search centered in a 20-mile square area about 30 miles southwest of St. Louis. A heavily wooded reservation is in the area. Police said the terrain is so rough a man might be able to hide for days. Stevenson By RAYMOND LAHR United Press Stiff Correspondent' Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson is a lard man to see, but he's worth he effort when the door finally opens. Since his nomination the door has been locked to all but aulhor- z'ed callers who have been de- icending on Springfield, 111. The Illinois governor is a'ch'eer- ul man--sometimes puckish--with a quick wit and a reputation for phrase-making, but he can be ruth- ess when the occasion demands. Plays Tennis Stevenson, who is 5'feet 9 and weighs 185, tries to keep his \»aist- ine "under control with an occasional game of tennis, which he slays better than most men of 52. tie usually loses, however, when ic is matched against his admin- strative assistant, William M Blair Jr., who has.won the Springfield city tennis; championship for ( twO: years,; A divorced man, Stevenson lives a somewhat secluded life in the MJ-year-old, rambling, white brick Illinois executive mansion. Ignoring the .routine of most of lis predecessors, Stevenson does nearly alf of his work in offices at :he .mansion and .seldom visits the governor's office at the Statehouse. N e w s m e n have long grumbled because he refuses to hold as many press conferences as they wanted. He has held severa since his nomination but the re porters are still clamoring for more. Four-syllables Despite his easy-phrasemaking Stevenson's assistants sometimes have to-restrain; him from :using four-syllable words which woulc be over the heads of his audience. His accents arid clipped manner of speech reflect his Eastern schooling. He /speaks in .public with apparent enjoyment but he once said, "I sometimes rnarve at the- extraordinary-docility with Eisenhower By REX CHANEY United Press Staff Correspondent Dwight D. Eisenhower's smile is 'amous around the world. , He is a friehdly man, a persuasive conversationalist, a nat- irally warm individual. But the 'urrows in his brows have deepened in the last few weeks. The transition from soldier to politician has been, in many ways, a slow and painful process for him. He has had to shift from the routine of the military to the catch-as-catch-cah of politics; from the familiar military companionship to the tiring rounds of Conferences with politicians, advisers, well-wishers and advice-givers.

Racing State Asks Hunters to Help in Survey DBS MOINES:(UP)--The State Conservation Commission u r g e d lowt hunters Thursday to, co-operate in « survey of wildlife population trends. ' Hunters were asked to send the commission quail wings, pheasant wings and right front foot and leg hones from rabbits and squirrels during the fall hunting season. f/ w h i c h Americans submit -to speeches. In news conferences, he is usually-deft but unwilling, to give away future 'campaign moves. When he doesn't know the answer, he says he'll'have "to be educated about that." . ' . , . The governor has claimed ifor himself the reputation-of being "a. very h a r d - m a n ( with .a penny." To back this ·claim, he sometimes ducks into an empty room at the mansion to turn out a light. And the official limousine is a 1940 Cadillac which has traveled more than 300,000 miies. When he can, Stevenson prefers to travel by now that he's in politics, is that le's going to' see it through. He proposes to wage a vigorous, fight- ng campaign. He is not, he says, going to compromise his convic- ;ions.;. · . · , . , . ; · ' , · / · ' . · · .If the voters won't take him as ic is, he plans to turn away from solitics with the feeling that he lought an uncompromising fight, stated his case as he saw it, and eft it up to the people to make their choice on the basis of the facts. . . He proposes to indulge in no name-calling. He freely admits as of now he is not acquainted with the record his opponent, Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, has made. When and if he takes out after Stevenson's record, he will not make a personal attack on Stevenson. The 62-year-old former five-star general, who resigned from the Army when he was nominated for the presidency in Chicago July is the first to admit that in the last few weeks he has been learning a lot about politics. Politic*! Adviser His chief political adviser is Gov. Sherman Adams. ; of New 1 Harnp ; shire, now ot» leave from his gubernatorial duties. His e'xecutive assistant is Arthur H. Vandenberg, son of ,the late senator from Michigan, and his press secretary is James C. Hagerty,' who served in a similar capacity, for Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York in the 1944 and .1948 campaigns. One apparent custom .held over from Eisenhower's, military .career plane. COP on Job In his relations with professional politicians, he has not always been orthodox. He kept some Republicans in state jobs and he showed much less sympathy about providing jobs for faithful Democrats than the county chairmen expected. When he learned that state pay- rollers were employed in a party patronage office at the St. Nicholas Hotel, he ordered them to return to state jobs or go on the party payroll. As the 1952 political campaign, approached,', he ordered his department heads to resist demands to provide more - state jobs for the party faithful.

Those who wanted art autograph were asked to step aside, and wait for the others to pass through. Then Eisenhower sat down at his desk and wrote his name on pictures,-postcards, etc., for another 10 or 15 minutes. Eisenhower is an enthusiastic, serious golfer. He has-little or no time for social conversation on the golf course. He studies each shot carefully, and he lines up each putt with the care of a Ben Hogan.
