FACE TEN Liberal Party Expected To get NewLeaseinCanadian Voting By BEN BASSETT TORONTO (AP) — Voters across Canada marked ballots today in an election widely were dubious of ousting St. Laurent as prime minister. The drubbing popular "Uncle Louis" handed them last time around remembered the In 1949's elections he spearheaded the greatest political victory In Canadian history. His party won 72 per cent of the seats in the House of Commons. Here and there, the Liberals had lost favor in the last four years, but seemingly not on a scale to •warrant much optimism for George Drew. As Conservative leader, Drew would succeed St. Laurent in a Tory victory. The Liberals came to power under W. L.

The Canadian term is nominally five years, but a ROV- ernment can cull an election before time expires The Liberals called this one well ahead of their 1954 deadline. The only offices at stake today were 263 Commons seats, representing as many districts. The Liberals won two other seats without opposition. The party winning a majority forms the government, naming the Prime Minister. He in turn appoints a cabinet. Dull Campaign St. Laurent's and Drew's names appeared on the ballot only in their own districts.

The scientist speculated that Russia, as far as the H-bomb is concerned, has just passed the stage which he says he believes the United States reached in the spring of 1951 at Eniwetok. In England, the vice" president of the British Atomic Scientists Assn.—Prof. Harrie S. W. Massey —said he felt the Russians could make an H-bomb if given time.

For hundreds of years the economic and social life of the country has centered in the mountains of the interior. Probably yell' fever was the chief reason. Until 40 years ago it was s constant danger along the coast in the summer. But since the disease has been eliminated from the port cities, there is no reason not to make greater use of them. A cabinet committee drafted plans for what the government calls "The March to the Sea." It fishing boats to provide cheap seafood for the. interior; a merchant fleet to carry coastwise freight and relieve the overburdened railroads; better dock facilities; agriculture colonies to use the well watered lands along the coast; and better roads to coastal areas from the interior.

Raup of Franklin, Pa., said that between Feb. 1 and Aug. 1, 1251. 4,400 prisoners died at the Pyoktong camp. "Later," Raup said, "the Communists tried to tell us that they lived as hard as we did. I was a cook and I know that wasn't true. They ate white rice and dog meat and we ate slop like cracked corn. "I've seen the time I sure would have liked a piece of dog meat," he said. Raup said he felt seven Americans from Camp 5 were not coming back. He said bitterly that if he ever meets any of the seven "I'd beat the hell out of him if he wasn't a better man than me and if he was I'd use a chair." One-Way Trip Raup said one of the seven told him that he wanted to go home, but about a week ago the prisoner was taken off in another direction. The corporal said two more men were taken with the first man on a one-way trip to China. Cpl. Billy J. Campbell of Loraine, Tex., said that at Pyoktong there was "no organized resistance against the 'progressives' no matter how much we hated their guvs. . . . We were spied on constantly and we would have been in real '.rouble if we had tried to discipline these men." Sgt. John P. Pingree of High Grove, Calif., said, "the spy system the Chinese had working among the progressives was so damn good that the Chinese knew how many hours you slept a night and if you had to g;t up during the middle of the night." Revival Stifvices Held At Lone Oak Church Revival services are being held twice daily during this week at Lone Oak Baptist Church, with the Rev. Billy KIngi serving as evangelist.

He added: "The Soviet Union has often been represented as a backward nation. What an error!" The Australian nuclear scientist Prof. Marcus Oliphant said in Canberra: "We should certainly be prepared to face the situation of the Russians having the hydrogen bomb." Many released prisoners told of being lectured on allegations of American germ warfare by Alan Wilmington, Communist correspondent for The London Daily Worker, who has been in .North Korea for more than two years. Raup said many men, including himself, were forced to sign petitions for the Communists. Constant Grueling "They worked on me all one night," Raup said, "from 7 o'clock in the evening until the next day, trying to make me sign one of their petitions for peace. At 3 a.m., they told me they were going to put me in solitary confinement if I didn't sign and I still refused. "At 6 a.m., one of the guards pulled out a .revolver and waved it in my face and said, 'you had better sign.' I signed." Pfc. Norman S.
