Elsenhower was pictured by opposition spea- cers as the "captive" of Sen; Robert A. Taft o» Ohio and the Republican "Old Guard;"»Eteven- son was depicted as the "captive" of President Truman's "Fair Deal" regime. Truman Take* Slump Harry s. Truman, the first President who wasn't seeking reelection since Calvin Coolidge did not choose to run In 1928, campaigned Just as hard for the Democratic ticket as If he were on It. He obviously relished U. telling one of his final whistle • stop crowds: "I kinda hate to give it up." Both Ocn. Elsenhower, the hero of the Normandy Beach Invasion of World War IT, and Stevenson, :he urbane and witty governor of Illinois, were outwardly confident of victory as they prepared to Bettie back anil await the verdict— Elsenhower In New York and Stevenson In Springfield, III. But the professional politicians and the poll Inkers wero not so sure. While the popular vote may be close, Iho electoral vote could be lopsided If there Is any groundswell of sentiment In the more populous slates. Especially perplexing lo the political seers were such big states as New York, Illinois and California, which among them hold 101 of the 2C6 electoral votes needed to win. Women Outnumber Men With women outnumbering men on the rolls of eligible voters by about two million. Eisenhower directed a special address "lo the women of America" today over television and radio. It Is being carried over CBS-TV radio from 12:30-12:45 p.m. (EST), over NBC nullo from 4:15-4:30, and over NBC TV from 4:45-5 p.m. Townrd Ihe end of the campaign, Elsenhower announced that if elected he would make a personal trip to Korea to try to bring the war to an "early nnd honorable end." Stevenson countered this with a declaration that there Is "no slick and easy" way out of the Korean stalemate, nnd that Ihe ultimate decision lies In Moscow, not In Korea. The Democratic nominee shortly afterward look a midnight leave of his campaign train to fly to Chester, III., nml end n prison uprising. This move might have had disns- troiis psychological consequences if he had failed. Among other campaign highlights, Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin went before a television audience to accuse Stevenson of being a supporter of "suicidal. Kremlin-shaped policies." Over the week end. the Democratic National Committee put out what it described as a detailed Former Resident Dies in California Walter A. Pankey, former Blyfhe- vllle resident, died last weekend In Artesla. Calif. Services are to be conducted In San Diego, Calif. Mr. Pankey, who was 59, resided in Blythcvllle nearly all his life and moved from here about 'Jive years ago. Survivors include a brother, M. 3 Pankey of Blythevllle. Services for Jarratt Infant Ace. Conducted Graveside services for Wesley Jarratt, one-ciay-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvle Jarratt of Blytlieville who died Saturday at Blythcvllle Hospital, were conducted In Memorial Park Cemetery yesterday by the Rev. Joo Bean, pastor of First Church of the Nazarene. Survivors Include the parents; three staters. Gloria, Josephine and Judith, all of Blythevllle; and three brothers, Kenneth Jarratt, who is serving in the Army, Curtis Jarratt of Detroit, and Melvln Jarratt. attending school In Nashville, Tcnn. 13 New Polio Cases Reported LITTLE ROCK W—The Arkansas office of the National Foundation of infantile Paralysis says 13 new cases of polio were reported in the state last week. Five canes were admitted to Little Rock hospitals, four Arkansas cases to a Springfield. Mo., Hospital, two nt Pine Bluff hospitals and one each at Paragould and Texar- knna. and documented analysis of the McCarthy speech, which sought to show that McCarthy "used at least 18 false statements, distortions or quotations wrenched from context." "Frantic Lying Speech" McCarthy called the committee statement a "frantic lying spree" and snld he would reply to It over a natlon-ivlde radio hookup tonight. An unusual aspect of what 'El- senhower called his "great crusade" was his aerial foray into the traditionally Democratic South, and his Insistence that the Southern vote should not be taken for granted. r OOP hopes on this score were raised by the defection of such Southern Democrats as Govs. Allan Shivers of Texas, James P. Byrnes of South Carolina and Robert Kennon of Louisiana. On the other hand, the Democrats counted on old party ties, plus the Sam Rayburn of Texas nnd many other congressmen to keep the Dixie vote In line. Most notable of the Republican defections was Sen..,Wayne Morse of Oregon, an early Eisenhower booster who "resigned" from the GOP because he said it was "dominated by reactionaries."

In the front room, the floor wns blood-splattered and there was a pool of blood beside the bed which is located near the doorway lending into the kitchen. Following the shooting. Brandon went to the home of Leon Jones, n neighbor, and told what he had done. Mr. Jones summoned police and kept Brandon in custody until they arrived. Deputy Aikcn, who was one of the first officers to arrive at the scene, said Brandon was lying beside the rend In front of the Jones' home when he arrived. He was immediately taken Into custody.

Tourist Business U on Increase TOKYO (if) — Japan had a 15 million dollar "harvest" from more Ulan 56,000 foreign tourists who visited the country last Figures recently released by the Tourist Bureau of the Communication and Transportation Ministry showed an Increase of approximately fire million dollars over the preceding year, and more than double the number of tourist*. Water is a' commodity so precious that no tyrant has ever dared deny it lo his people. The earJies! records of our civilization are linked to (he sin-ing and the walerhole, the river nnd the well. The Children of Israel faltered in the wasteland nnd were ready lo revolt until Moses struck the rock and brought forth n .spring. Wars have been fought over water rights and once mighty nations have vanished li era use their; water resources failed. Men have halded lo the death over the last few drops in a canteen. Formidable fortresses, impregnable in other respects, have fallen because of an insufficient water supply. Ships' masters hnve had to risk the destruction of their vessels and the slaughter of their crews because water shortages forced tand- erlies because of failing wells and dried-up water courses. Families have given up their homes and deserted their prop- Ings on savage isles. London was virtually destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century and Chicago reduced lo ashes in 1871 because sufficient water could nol he delivered to the right place at the right time. What is water worth? Water is beyond price — so far beyond price that water is free of nil price.
