Speck, the OOP gubernatorial candidate, got 24,049 votes against 177,874 for Cherry. Those v:ere [lie figures when 1,371 2,382 boxes had made unofficial returns. As n. result. Speck resigned today as a member of the GOP State Committee. Arkansas voters approved by a majority of nearly three to bile a proposal to revise the state Iligh- wny Commission set-up and riakc .he plan a part o! the state's Constitution. Also approved was a proposed amendment to allow every county ,o elect a county clerk. A prposal to permit cities tp levy .axes to aid private industries apparently was definitely defeated. Somewhat ; surprisingly, the vote against controversial Act 242 of 1951, the, new state purchasing law, was only slightly larger than the vole favoring it although bctpfe the election no J one had spokeri H .kind word 'for the. ; act.

Tidal Waves Hit Hawaii Under-Sea Quake Blamed; No One Hurt By HOY KSSOVAN HONOLULU (fT) —A massive convulsion of the earth's .crust deep under the Pacific Ocean of Siberia hurtled seismic 6ea waves a quarter of the way around the world yesterday nt jet plane speed. Mighty walls of water lashed the Aleutians, Midway and Hawaii. Lesser waves washed against the Pacific shores of Canada and the United States. The seismic shocks burst out of the Sea of Okhotsk, between Siberia and Japan .They generated waves which streaked across the Pacific at more than 400 miles an hour. Warning messages crackled through the air. Low-lying Islands and coastal cities across 5,000 miles of ocean were alerted against possible disaster. Apparently not a single life was lost. Damage was remarkably light. The last time such great waves swept across the Pacific — on April I, 1946—169 persons were killed in Hawaii. Missco Voting Sidelights Not everyone in Mississippi County voted Democratic or Republican yesterday as six voters cast ballots for the two "splinter parties" listed-the Christian Na- Uonnllsls and tlie Prohibition Party. The Christian Nationalists, backing Gen. MacArthur. got one vote in Oosnell nnd Leachville. In the Gill Pontinc Co. Box In Ward Two. the Prohibitionists got one vole. They drew another in the Ward One City Hnll box, where two oilier voters also voted this llcket but apparently marked . their ballols Incorrectly. These two voted for only one (if the Prohibition Party electors instead of the two on the ballot. ' Voters in the Pecan Point precinct displayed a rare unanimity of political opinion yesterday. The unofficial totals, on the presidential race and all ulnte races and issues were.107 lo 0. The vote was straight Democratic and In favor of all acts and amendments with the exception of Amendment 42, the highway commission revision. In this case, the results' were 107-0'against. • * • , Write-in votes are permissible In general elections, but only two cases . of Inserted candidates turned, up yesterday. These were found in the GUI Pontla'c Co. box In Ward Two. They were for Justice of the peace and In-, volvcd presidents ol both banks /Ii.'.A. .Lynch, i president - of .Fanners Bank and. T^rustVCtx^' and E. M.!' Rcgendld, 'president of First National Bank, each got 15 votes as JP's of Chlcknsawba Township. Only two. candidates were listed and four-were to be elected. • « * The only completely Republican precinct In Mississippi County." yesterday was Frenchman's Bayou, home of OOP Gubernatorial Candidate Jefferson W. Speck. This was the only box In the county curried by Mr. Speck, Lee Reynolds, candidate for lieutenant governor, and George W. Johnson, running for attorney general. Eisenhower also carried this box (35-14), but fared considerably better In the ehrt .than these GOP colleagues. " Ike lost an early-reporting "box" here Monday, but it didn't hurt him. In a mock election at Elm Street Negro Grade School, the Stcvenson-Snarkmari ticket triumphed 248-102 over the. Eisenhower-Nixon slate. King Henry Nunn and Charles Miller rep- scntctl the Democratic candidates and Jlmmie Strickland and Chnrles Watklns the GOP standard-bearers.. • * * Effects of radio and television coverage of national elections and the Increased Interest in the presidential rnce over city contests were noticeable last night. Only eight persons came lo the Courier News office during vote tabulations to see ho?.- the re- lurns were running. Number of phone Inquiries also was at a new low. and only a relatively few of these concerned the five races for city offices. General Gets Majority of PopularVote Gov. Stevenson Leads in Only 8 Southern States Dy JACK BELL Associated Press Staff Wriler America thundered its liking for Ike today with a cresh- ing avalanche of votes that gave Gbii. Dwight D. Eisenhower the presidency but fell short of guaranteeing him a Republican-controlled congress. The war-famed general of tha wide grin buried Gov. Adlai E. Sipvenson under a sea-to-sea landslide thai ripped open the once- solid South and~shattered the Democrats' 20-year hold on'lhe White House. Stevenson lost his own sta'te of Illinois and appeared likely to wind up with only nine Dixie and border slates having a total of 89 electoral votes. Eisenhower had clinched or was leading in 39 stales with 429 electoral votes, 163 more than the 2GB needed for election. Associated Press returns >i 1Z:30 p. m, <CST), from 123,373 of the country's 146,361 votinj units showed the popular vote: Eisenrower—29,569,799 Stevenson—23,785,280 Total 51,355,079. Elsenhower percentage: 55.4. William A. Smith Dies of injuries William Albert Smith. 80, of the Gosncll area, died at Wall Hospital at 7 am. this morning of Injuries sustained when he was run over by a tractor ycslcrday as he was cranking it. Services will be conducted at 2 p.m. tomorrow at Holt Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will be in Memorial Park Cemetery. Control .of both the House and Senate remained In doubt in mount- Ing returns from yesterday's record-smashing election. Even if his party couldn't keep pace with htm in the far corners of the land, the 62-year old warrior- statesman had a personal mandate from the voters matching in volume that given Herbert Hoover, his ,!ast Republican : predecessor I."'U* 2 - 8 .,and rh-nUihg $ome of those for Franklin D. Roosevelt. Tho informal Republican-Southern Democrat'coalition wfilch has dictated congressional action on legislation wns strengthened by the, Eisenhower victory and tha general could expect from il support for the'progTam he laid out In his campaign "crusade." House control apparently hinged on (he outcome in a half dozen or more districts created by reappointment of voting strength, with only a vote or two likely to separate lotal • Republican and Democratic strength. Senate Races Tight The Senate contest was Just as tight. Republicans had gained a net of one scat and needed to win four of nine • undecided races, to scat 48 Republicans in addition to Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon, who turned independent and supported Stevenson. If thfi GOP won the four outstanding races in which they were leading—in Kentucky, Wyoming, Arizona and Michigan—Ihey could organize the Senate Jan. 3 with Morse's help.
