Ike <o Oe( Big Vote In state after state, even in some of those considered dead sure to go Democratic as usual, editors and correspondents say Eisenhower will receive the biggest vote ever accorded a Republican presidential candidate. At the moment, the composite opinion of Southern newspapermen is that Stevenson is certain to sweep the presidential election In Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Missis sippi, North Carolina. South Caro lina, Tennessee. Oklahoma and West Virginia. Those nine states have 88 electoral votes. Kentucky is considered close but fairly sure to go Democratic. Virginia editors think their state is leaning toward Stevenson by such a scant, margin as to be highly doubtful. Kentucky has 10 electoral votes, Virginia 12. Editors are uncertain as to whether Texas. Louisiana and Florida with 44 electoral votes among them will remain Democratic or hop ovej to the Republican camp.

Coal Contract Talks Under High Pressure WASHINGTON (/P) — Pressure mounted in coal Industry contract :nlks today behind a threat by John L. Lewis to call a push-button mines' strike. Lewis' strike plans—calling for some members of his United Mine Workers to quit work Monday, some others 10 days later, while still others remain at their Jobs without a contract—has the mine owners in a dither. Selling coal Is a competitive business and owners don't like to sec their mines idle while rival diggings are working and likely to tilke over customers. Lewis hns staggered his contract expiration dates so his union's agreement, with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, representing tile bulk of the soft coal mines in Northern states, principally those in Pennsylvania, Northern West Virginia and Ohio, expires this week end.

The fair trades laws established markups on both liquor and cigarettes, thus making price cutting below a standard price illegal. The bill calling for the abolishment oi the 90-day divorce law would amend the statute to require five bargaining, the right to strike; I applicants for divorce decrees to live , to give advance notice before a strike is called; a requirement that both unions and employees live up ticket in November even if it falls short of carrying any states. If voter sentiment shirts later on, in advance of the election, some newsmen expect it to be in Stevenson's direction. That is the case In Arkansas, for example, and in Florida, too. The reasons offered are that Stevenson will pick up Southern supporters as he becomes better known while Elsenhower may lose a bit of ground as the first Rush of enthusiasm aroused by his early September campaign trip to the South begins to fade a little. pete said that union members assurance ;ct a regular „*. „ lliBlil report on their union's finances.-' Eisenhower told the 800 delegates "you know me well enough to know 'that I have not come to curry any special favor.

I had just returneo irom a lour of inspection in the Pacific. I was trying to get some rest down in Georgia. I got a telephone cuil from Washington. The message asked that I return to Washington about Stevenson's plans. The governor's chief lieutenants also ducked the question. However, it appears more than likely that_Stevenson will campaign in Yvisconsin. He has frequently attacked McCarthy, usually without mentioning his name. Fairchild said he came away from his talk with Stevenson "hopeful" dial the Democratic presidential candidate will come into Wisconsin. Stevenson, in a statement issued to commemorate constitution dav took occasion to ask: "Docs anyone have true freedom of speech when not only his views but his very character and reputation are to be subjected to irresponsible, distorted attack bv others?" * WAKE I M 'One of the accusations (Continued from Page 1) ncious. They were F. w. Moore of Denver and Blair Johnson of Los Angeles. McCarthy has been that he practiced "character assassination." Stevenson's statement continued- 'The edges of the area of free speech and free thought are often eaten away by an atmosphere of fear and suspicion engendered by the irresponsible—an ' atmosphere which is dangerous to men's liberties, but wbtch cannot be for,, —..~~, —I.* «ijiv,ii (.illulul, DC IOr- A tjuonset hut blew down on bidden or cleared a\vav bv law ifm " RnrVn,- c.~i,a ,.i. _. .. -i ., J •> them," Barker said.

In reference to his Democratic rival for the presidency, Eisenhower declared: "My opponent made it plain on labor day that ht: wanted power, as president, to control arbiUrtion. That is exactly what I am against. If you want the basic, irreconcilable difference between his position and mine, there it is. He and his party embrace compulsion. I reject compulsion!" Eisenhower asked, "Can labor have forgotten the extraordinary I proposal of the present administra- | tion for dealing with a threatened railroad strike." "It was the demand from the head of the Democratic party that lhe strikers be drafted Into the army!" (This referred to President Truman's action in 1946 when he seized the railroads and asked the men to stay on their jobs. When his request was ignored, he took drastic steps, including the threat . strike then was called off after It had lasted two days.) Eisenhower continued: "As chief of staff (of the army) them. I was a soldier, not a strikebreaker. "So far as T am aware my opponent in this election did not object to the draft of strikers into the army. His running mate (Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama) 'Voted for it. It was the members of my party in the Senate who finally defeated the proposal." Cemetery.
