Sawyer said, however, that local issues, rather than state of national, would bring out many voters. Republican State chairman Bradford Hutchins anticipates a vote of 230.000 to 250,000. He based it on "interest stirred .among Republicans" by Republican vice presidential candidate Richard M, fifrixon's four-day visit last week-; ^'the realization that solid support of the Republican ticket Is necessary, and the added interest engendered by the several independent candidates on 'the ballot." An investigation of the state monopoly liquor' operation overshadowed all other Issues. In Washington,. the" Democratic National Committee demanded last night that Gen. Eisenhower refuse to accept campaign support from Maine's Gov. Frederick G. Payne. Republican senatorial candidate. The -statement, issued by George W.'Ball of Chicago, executive dl- reetor of the Volunteers for Stevenson, said silence by the general will mean he condones the "mess in Maine.'

Relentless Waters of Alaskan 'Ship Graveyard' .Claim Another Canadian Pacific Lines Vessel JUNEAU, Alaska W—The 'relentless waters of a Southeastern Alas*a "ship graveyard" claimed another Canadian Pacific Lines vessel yesterday—its flagship, the Princess Kathleen—but not one of the 415 aboard was lost. A mile and a half off course the B.SOS-ton Kathleen crunched aground with her bow almost Underneath a cliff at 3:15 a.m. Earth- qua ke - conscious Californians aboard said the blow felt like such a shock. Within four hours, with Coast Guard-aided rescue efforts, the 307 passengers' aboard were gotten ashore, many,of the younger ones climbing down ladders to the beach. Near mid-day, when the rising tide began to fill the hull, Capt. Graham O. Hughes ordered senders were served coffee. Winds kicked up six-foot waves and a drenching rain fell. On -arrival of the Coast Ouard cutter, lifeboats brought passengers ashore, fires were built on the beach and a path was cut thnragh brush and rocks half a mile to a road. About 160 of the younger passengers, many of them on a tour sponsored by the Catholic Vomit; Men's Institute of San Francisco, climbed down ladders to the shore and hiked to the read. The Coast Guard boat took 11 of the older passengers to Tee Harbor and returned and took between 30 and 40 to Auke Bay, both points with easy access to the road to Juneau. One of the survivors suffered a heart in the lobby of ashore. The ship slipped from its rocky berth and sank, with its bow going (high into the air, in Do feet of water at 1:40 p.m. The spot was 18 miles north of here. The Kathleen had sailed from Juneau for Stag- way. First Officer Charles W. Savage was on the bridge when the ship hit, Capt, Hughes reported. The lookout sighted the reef and cliff looming up in the darkness and light rain but there was no time to change course. The first officer was unable lo explain the ship's position. Hughes said. He was near collapse after the ship was abandoned. The ship's plight was not believed serious at first and the pas- After the crew got ashore, they huddled near fires and as the Kath- leen'finally filled with water and took its last plunge, they bared their heads and wept. Robert M. Gilmore of San Francisco, an assistant to the vice pres- irtent of the Southern Pacific Railway, said rescue operations were carried on "beautifully and smoothly." Three other Canadian Pacific Lines ships have been lost In .the immediate area and a fourth was salvaged. One of the North Pacific's worst marine disasters took the lives of 343 persons, every one aboard, when tne Princess Sophia sank on Oct. 18, 1018, only eight miles away. Sel It. Forget it.

Merely to know you share the same world makes you feel better. Gertrude Lawrence was one o f this shining company. Her magnificent gift of gaiety lifted the heart* of millions who learned to laugh at their troubles with "Gertie." Her steady rise from chorus girl to a reigning queen of the stn?e pUKSleri many a member of her own profession. "She Isn't a great dancer, she Isn't even a very good dancer." they said, "and certainly she Is no great shakes as an aclress." Miss Lawrence cheerfully admitted most of her critics were quite right.

Few In her own time, however, equalled her sheer genius in putting over a son? or a role. Her art was the power of creating illusion, and sharing it with the people who came to sec her. Personality Is magnetism, and that she hart. When sh' stepped on a stage it seemed brighter. Even before the first notes poured from that husky throat, the warmth of her spread through an audience like an invisible wave of heat from a hidden fire. Women envied her for this quality of Ignition—men loved-her for it. She was a hard worker all the way, and never was content to lean on her oars and believe her press notices. She always was ready to help young actors and actresses learn their craft, and she remained a perennial student herself. "An actress is like a piece of blotting paper," she said once. "You don't consciously learn the tecli- nlmie of acting, you absorb it." Gertie, like all champions, was a tremendous competitor. Broadway- ites still recall thai famous opening night of "Lady in ihe Dark" In 1941. Danny Kaye, then a comparative • unknown, stopped the show with! his Tschalkowsky number, In which i he rattled off the tongue-twisting names of 50 Russian composers. What would Gertie do? The critics wondered. And waiting in the wings for the applause to end, Gcr- all-but-imposslble to knock over a tough Broadway audience with two songs In a row. "Out Glided Gertie" Out glided Gertie. She twitched her hips, and began to sing a slow torch song called "Jenny."

And that's one great thing that television is doing, presenting the facts. We're not talking . about pitchman and ^dvertis- ments, but something like a political convention, for instance. ... A lot of characters who appeared on video at the conventions are going to find themselves behind at the polls in their next elections because of their conduct and promises. . . . When a candidate steps before a video camera and points hit finger at his viewers and proclaims a promise in a vjbwmt voice, he'd better be prepar-, ed'to "carry out that promise because hi.s constituent* will remember his video app*t«p- ance much longer than a radio address.
