INTKA-I'AKTV BATTLE: The slugging at each nlher fully The OOP elephant (until the middle 30's» was axiomatically considered to be very much bigger than the Democratic donkey. But the Plephiint hns shrivelled, and the donkey has cardinally grown. A recent Gallup poll, working on the basis of an estimated electorate of 55 million, 'puts the Democrats at 21.5 million, the Republicans at 16.5 million, and independents at 15 million. Tf a candidate, to win, must get something over 2V'-j million voles. I his mentis that the Democrats need pick up only 6 million independents, whereas the Republicans must pick up 9 million. Daring Test Pilot Saves Film As 'Flying Triangle' Crashes ' only plane of its type in operation — crashed in flames yesterday but officials said r.noihcr of the supersonic Jets will be completed within a few rlays. Test pilot Bill Waterloo, 36, leaped safely from the plane after V he crash-landed It at Boscome •Sown Air Station. The Canadian^Pirn squadron leader lumped carrying vital movies recording the accident. Seconds later the plane burst into flames. Fire squads moved in quickly and saved it from complete destruction. The Air Ministry three weeks ago accepted the delta-shaped Glostcr OA5 for mass production. The strength of Its triangular winir con- when It hit the runway. Its two Sapphire jet engine: have been considered lhe world':most powerful. Yesterday, however. Britain released figures on a newer and even more' powerful engine. The new Jet engine, (he Bristol Olympus, has maximum static thrust of rj.150 poun[ts a compared lo the Sapphire's 8.300 pounds. This means it has some 9.7SO horsepower at 300 miles per hour and 17.000 horsepower at ROD miles. The Olympus was first developed here by the Bristol Aeroplane Company but also is being worked on in the United States by the Wright Aeronautical Corp, under license from Bristol. 35,000 Youngsters to Get Shots In Mass Move to Prevent Polio HOUSTON «>i—Experimental In- noculation of 35.000 young children vnil begin this veek In a mass test ot a drug to prevent paralysis from poUo.

Hubert Humohrey 'D-.Minni .vester- day criticized members of the Democratic party who would, drop the civil right* planfc In the party's platform for harmony. The .Minnesota senator 8poke to the closing session of the National Association 1 for the Advancement of Colored People here. He could not come in person as he orininHiy planned and delivered his address by telephone. Humphrey told the delegates he would fight for a civil rights plank in the Democratic platform this year similar to the one voted at the 1948 convention. Taft an] Eisenhower forces are as much as at any Democrat. I Moreover, in the past five elec- } tions, the Independent vote has been prevailingly Democratic No Republican can possibly u In unless he mnfcc.s enormous inroads on ei- j ther the Democratic or the independent vote. This is not a matter. i of opinion, but of basic fact. ! This, incidentally, serves to make somewhat ridiculous the recent outcries by Taft and others lhat Democrats have been vonng for Eisen- bower in Republican primaries, and that this Is "immoral" and an "out- j" I If a lot of Democrats don't vote Republican in November, Eisenhower will be back at Columbia, and Taft's address will still be c'o the Senate, not Pennsylvania Avenue.
