Mitchell today urged memben of his party to forget their campaign difference* and get on with the job of keeping America strong and free. Mitchell's statement was delivered approximately an hour after Oov. Adlai Steevrison, the Democratic presidential candidate, had conceded victory to Gen. Dwight Elsenhower. Mitchell said Stevenson had become -'a leader of natonal stature and we shall hear more from him." He said Stevenson and Sen. John Sparkman, his vice presidential running mate, had "kept their principled and talked sense to the American people." , "Our candidates and this committee— as far as I know— never struck a low blow In the campaign," Mitchell said.

Although the delegates endorsed resolutions to this effect by acclamation, observers here doubt If Chlnng will be able to muster full support. Hard Headed Businessman The overseas Chinese Is a hardheaded businessman who meets payrolls and sells merchandise. He taps rubber and runs shipping lines and keeps banks functioning. A London report said Russia got 64.863 tons of rubber during the first six montlis of this year from countries In the Western camp. A loj of. It was tapped and shipped by overseas Chinese — some of whom may have been delegates at the Formosa meeting. In this sense, the overseas Chinese Is not an all-out antagonist of communism or a pro - Chiang fighter. •-.:••• But If the bulk of the Chinese living abroad are permanently won over the Chiang, the Communists will feel It economically as well as politically. This group has sent tremendous money contributions home to China, mostly as remittances to their families. If they think Chiang has a chance; of liberating tho old folks they will send tho money to him. -•,... Delegates nt the Talueh confer- once set Ihclr sights on 100 million v ."

(m - Haggard Ohio Penitentiary officials today began transfer of 150 prisoners to Camp Perry on Lake Erie following collapse of a mllllon-dollnr prison riot. The mclce brought death to one convict and wounds to four others and a state highway patrolman. While buse.5 were getting ready for the trip to Camp Perry, prison guards shook down the 1,000 holdout convicts who surrendered late yesterday inside beleaguered Ceil- blocks G. H, I and K. The transfer to Camp Perry will be the largest movement of inmates in the prison's history— even larger than the one in 1930 when a fire killed 32(1. The movement will give Warden Ralph w.

Fulbright'Prouii of Arkansas 1 For Sticking by Democrats HOLLYWOOD <»—So you think his election was a rugged one? You should have been around in -W*. . . "The contest between Adlai Ste- •enson and Dwljht Elsenhower was mild compared* to other preslden- lal races In the past," remarked Irving Stone, noted author and expert on presidential history. "Of course, there was a lot of name-calling this year, particularly in the last two weeks. That happens In every election. By that Ime the campaigners are like automatons hurtling through space; hey say things out of anger and 'atlgue that they really don't mean. "But at least we have reached he p,oint where wives are no longer brought Into the arena for slaughter. The most shocking example of :hls was In the 1828 election between Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams;" | Stone'wrote a biography of Mrs. Jackson, called "The President's Lady.' It has Just been filmed with Susan Hayward and Charleton Heston as the Jacksons, The story tells how the 1828 campaign killed the President's wife. Divorce Wai Factor "Henry Clay, who was running (he Adams campaign, realized Jackson • had tremendous popularity," said Stone.."Clay decided the only way to boat Jackson was through his wife." Rachel Jackson had previously 3ccn married to a cruei landowner from whom she fled. She heard later that he had divorced her, nnd so she married Jackson. But the divorce was found to be incomplete, and her former husband then divorced her on grounds of adultery. "Clay dug up the trial and publicized .It throughout the country In newspapers and pamphlets," Stone recounted. "She was called 'adulteress' and worse. Copies of obscene songs about her w«r« distributed on street corners. Jackson was called 'wil«-stealer' by his opponents ^ "Despite these effort*, Jackson won by an electoral vote of 178 to 83. But he lost his wife. As she was preparing to leave for the inauguration, she overheard two women calling her vile names. Already shunned by Nashville society and weakened by the attacks, she fell In a coma and died two days later." 'AT, HOT. •, INI tw««B th* p.
