MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 1948 BLYTHEV1LLB (ARK.) 1 COURIER NEW! Wallace's Candidacy May Hurt Chances of Oewey and Warren To Get Republican Nomination •7 AL KUETTNEB ! United rrw* »taff Corrwpondent i ATLANTA, G«., Jan. S. (U.P.)—Veteran Southern eongreumwi i who havi ipent long yean training In th* field of politic* made tome diction* today about th* political future of Henry Agard Wallace hi* third party. by greeting himself nominated In ? doesn't have a chance to become president, his third party movement will cause some major repercussions In both the Democrat and Republican parties. Rep. John H. Overlon, R., t-»., said Wallace's action had eliminated New York Qov. Thomas E. Dewey as a Republican Parly nominee. . It had it "damaging effect" on hopes of Gov. Earl Warren of California to nab the GOP nomination and "temendously Improved" the chances of Sen. Robert Taft, Overtoil said. Factor in Two States Only . In the deep Democratic South, most political observers are giving Wallace little chance of making showing. Most states will let him on the general election ballot either by getting himself nominated In a convention nr through a petition signed by a representative nunv ber of his supporters. Sen. Clyde R. Hoey, D., N. C.. one of the Senate's keenest political ob servers, believes the Wallace movement may affect the course of things In New York and California—Dewey and Warren territory—but not elsewhere. Sen. Walter F. George, D., Ga., •. Who has been around the halls o! Congress over 25 years, observed ; that "it is wishful thinking" on the part of Democrats and Republicans 't to say- that Wallace "won't have a following which will influence the vote in sopie sections." -George believes that Wallace will . ^|ry the olive branch of a peace I program through his campaign and thus will oppose universal military training. Likewise, he said, Wallace will oppose our intervention In the atfalra of Greece and Turkejc. "He will deal with the tymptoms of Inflation because thc*e arc the things the people can see and the voteri on know about," George Mid. The Georgia aenator took It for granted that President Truman will be the Democrats choice this year and said Mr. Truman will "go strictly along with the Marshall plan and emphislze the need for antl inflation legislation at home." He believes the Republican platform will center around tax reduction and Improvement of our foreign relations. Sen. John L. McClellan, D., Ark., said Wallace's support will come from "all Communists and a very few well-intending but misguided voters." Rep. Wirt Courtney, D.. Tenn., said Wallace will get only "the lunatic fringe" from the Democratic and GOP parties. "I think his ^total vote will throughly demonstrate that there are few people in this nation who think more of Russia and Communism than they do of America and democracy." McClellan said. Train Hits Sleigh; 10 Children Die Accidtnt Ttrmid One Of Worst on Record; Driver Not Blamed AROHBOIO. O., Jan. S. (UP)— The parent* of 10 children killed when a passenger train crashed Into a jay sleigh party said today they didn't blatue the driver who admitted he "Just froze atlrj" sight of the oimishlng train. "It wa* Just an accident," *ald Lawrence Oileser. father of four of the dead children. "We don't blame hlin." Thirteen laughing, shouting children—none older than I3_were rldinj the low-sluiif, j arm utility ilelgh on a Sunday afternoon outing In a light snowstorm when the accident occurred at a railroad crossing one mile E«»t of here Only three aurvlved. The National Safety Council li Chicago said It, was " one o f t ne worst highway accident deith toll on record." Jesse, driver of the tmctor hauling the alelgh, wliose own *on and daughter survived, said he was halfway across the tracks when he saw the train bearing down. Recruits Sought Set. Arthur G. Bahn of the US Army and Air Force Recruiting Station here announced today that enlistments are now open for direct assignment to the 384th Anti- Aircraft Artillery Battalion, tta- ttoned at Fort Bibs, Texas. He said this battalion is urgently In need of trained anti-aircraft artillery men and men may enlist In grades hfl(! at time of discharge, provided they held their grade and MOS lonj enough.

Sherer. of Toledo, o., engineer of the train—the New York Central's ClUcago»ti-,sald he was traveling 80 miles an hour and had no chance to come to a stop. Body Pinned to Boiler The train traveled one mile beyond the crossing before the emergency brakes brought It to a halt. The_bndy of on c little girl was pln- led 'on the front of the train, beneath the boiler "Bodies littered the side Qf the tracks," one train passenger said. 'On one side I counted five. ThRt girl was pinned on the boiler when I got off the train to see what had happened." Wyse said he had promised to take the children on the ritle Saturday, but had put It off. Yesterday his son, John, 13. suggested the outing again and offered to drive th e tractor. "r told John he was too young and said I'd take them myself," Wyse said. Wyse's son was sitting on the back of the sled and Jumped off safely when the train hit. The two Injured girls. Shirley Grieser, •9, and Janice Wyse, 7, were thrown off the front of the sleigh. They were reported In Rood condition at Detwller Hospital In Wauseon. O., where they were taken. The dead were: Jean Pearl 'On- borne, 12. and her sliter, Marjorle, 10, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Osborne, Gayle and Charlotte Grteser, 13- 'year-old twins. Patricia. 8. and Sharon, 6, a}l children of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Gvieser. Dawn Grieser, 13. Marlin, 11, Arlene, 10 and Janice. 4. Children of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Orieser. Whistle* Confused Railroad officials said a freight train passed the unguarded crossing shortly before the accident occurred and It was believed Wyse may hive waited for It tn pass before he started across the tracks. Tlie passenger train whistle might have been confused with that of thr freight. It was believed. Slierer. the train engineer, said "I saw that tractor with it* sleigh attached more than a Quarter of a mile ahead of us and I thought It would *top before that grade crossing. "But when T saw it was not'slow- ing idown, I pulled our warning whistle and the emergency brakes at the same time. But there wasn't any use. "We were going at a clip of 80 miles per hour and we hafl no chance to come to a stop. The accident occurred about 2:30 pm. Th« train continued on to Chicago, arriving one hour and minutes late. Ita locomotive still carrying traces of the accident— pieces of straw, splinters of wood i and bits of flesh. for snow by artificial means while they were over Nevada. He claimed the clouds ordinarily would drop their snow or ruin on Utah. Ed Walker, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, auggetted that Backman-"go Jump in the lake he lives by." Bui Utah's attorney general, Orov- er Giles, took a more serious view of the Issue. He said he was "considering carefully" asking for a federal court Injunction to enjoin Nevada from dehydrating Utah's clouds. "For years Western state* have been fighting over the diversion of water from rivers for their own use," Giles said. "Now we're faced, by a similar problem: the diversion of water before It hit* the ground." Qlles claimed that the theory.of ngarJan rights to water, and the rights of prior claim hold just as much before the water has left the skies as they do when the water is In rivers. "I'm sure that the attorney general of Nevada, Alan Bible, will see the legal aspects In this case," Giles added. "He and the state he represents are bound to realize that Justice is on our side, and the matter of letting nature take Its normal course must not be Interfered wllh, any more than you can interfere with a stream of water." The , controversy developed over Reno's attempts to get snow for a forthcoming ski meet by dropping dry ice pellets Into clouds hovering 10,000 feet over Mt. Rose. The first attempt produced a few sickly snowflakes. The second ev»p orated a large black cunuilous cloud and produced nothing. Walker said another attempt would be made today. "We claim the right to the water or snow contained In any and all clouds during the period they are In the vicinity of Reno," Walker said.
