TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1950 BLVTHEVTM,E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Senate Seat and Governor's Office Are High Stakes in Pennsylvania By CHARLES WELSH i PHILADELPHIA; Oct. 10, (AP> — A Ujs. Senate seal and the governorship — together with places of great power In national political party council!—are the high stakes In Pennsylvania'! November election. : ' . , The top candidates, already on the national scene, are.Republican Governor James H. Duff and VS. Senator Francis Myers,'a Democrat. They seek the Senate seat Myers now holds. The winner no N«v. 1 will be a national standout in his party, » man to be consulted in the 1952 scramble for the 'Presidency. Their campaign so far has been devoted almost exclusively to national issues. Myers, a three-term. U.S. representative before he movec six years 'ago to the .senate, where he is now assistant ' democratic leader, says he Is standing squarely on his voting record of support for the "New Deal" and "Pair Deal" programs. . : Duff has been critical of the nation's ' stale of preparedness at a time when federal expenditures are at an all-time high. There are two unusual features about the campaign, both of them closely walolied within and from outside the state. No. 1 Is Aftermath No. 1, to Republicans, is the aftermath of the May primary. Duff picked his own slate then, refused to so along with candidates" acceptable" to the old-line party leadership headed by former sena- tof Joseph R. Grundy, and carried his entire ticket to victor yln a bitter campaign. The scars hav^not yet been eras- V ed. Grundy and'hls ally, National » Commltteeman O. Mason Owlett * stood aside from the early cam palgning and fund-raising. Democrats, counting on the GOP split to help their candidates, are rebroad- casting to campaign meetings some of'the bitter charges made by Republicans against Republicans during the primary. No. 2 is a series of grand jury investigations, in which some of the candidates are figuring. At Pitts burgh, a Dufl-appoinled state at torney general has assumed contro of a probe into charges that cit; employes, on city working time, dii private work for city officials. Pitts burgh is the big Democratic cente ot (lie 'state, with an admlnlslra- tlon headed by Mayor David Lawrence, Democratic national com- mltteeman. Duff's home Is near Pittsburgh. Crime Is Investigated In Republican-controlled Philadelphia, a feweral grand Jury Is looking into charges ol organized crime and racket operations. Also, a three-year-old state Inquiry into charges of graft and shakedowns by city officials .is continuing. Philadelphia Is the home of both Myers and his running mate for governor, Richardson Dilworth. In the eastern Pennsylvania hard coal region, another federal grand Jury,, Is Investigating G.I. school OP' erations, and checking also on Republican primary campaign contributions. Former Judge John S. Pine, Duff's candidate for governor, has been for years the Republican leader of Luzerlne County, where.the inestigation Is continuing. Voter reijistraUon, as usual, shows about a three-to-two Republican lead. For the primary, last official figures a&ilable. the count was 2,862.112 Republicans, 1,926,216 Democrats, 50,485 for ajl other,parlies. Only one Democrat has been elected gocrnor since the CHI War and only Myers and Joseph F. G'uf- fey hae been elected to the Senate as Democrats within the past 20 years. HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN South Korean Helps Strayed Gl Escape after 69 Days in Wilds KOREA— W)— A young American ifficer has returned snfely after pending 69 Incredible days alone behind Red Hues. With no out his courage Second LI. Joseph Elbert Hicks, a 25-year-old platoin leader from Coben. III., stoically endured every lard.ship rather than surrender, "I would rather have starved," he said grimly. And perhaps he would have starved except for n loyal young South Korean who brought him food and saved his life by moving him from one mountain hideaway to another whenever danger of capture grew near. For security reasons this native patriot cannot be identified now. But he risked the lives of himself and his wife and six small children to help the American. "He Is the only reason I am alive today," said Hicks gratefully. "I had to depend on his thinking and initiative rather than my own. And we could talk lo eacli other only by gestures and by drawing pictures on Ihe ground with sticks. Hicks, who served with the Marines In the last war, looked like storybook hermit when he came down out of the hills after nearly ten weeks. His black hair fell to his shoulders. He had a thick matted beard. And only thin tatters ol his fatigue uniform still clung to his G-foot-l-!nch frame. "I've Gained Wright" The first six days of his ordea he had nothing at nil to eat. Th rest, of the time he had lived al most entirely on rice. But he mad a rueful dlscovey: "Why, I've But Hicks gained weight!" was far below hi Liquor Vote Question Set For Decision Hkki Drape it River Hicks fell back to Ihe river, dlvld- d his men Into squads uid walt- d until his own squad was almost ver to the far bank before starting cross the stream himself.

Whether the proposed statewide I escaped by crawling Into » prohibition act will be on the No- mall road culvert," he said. "It I vember general election ballot prob- was almost filled with water and ably will b« determined next Mon- hcre was only about four Inches between Ihe water »nd the celling >! the culvert. I stayed there until normal 175 pounds when his adventurous saga b:gan. For more than three weeks he and his men had been fighting desperate delaying withdrawal actions with the rest of the remnants of the. shattered American 24th Infantry Division. They were among the heroes who came out of the siege of burning Tacjon nlive. And they still had the lonely mission of making further defensive stands to give the army time to rush reinforcements from Japan and America. In the early hours of July 29 Lieutenant Hicks and his plaloon were in a pitifully smnll force assigned the Irnpossile task of out- posting Kochang, a city 50 miles southwest of Taegu, the provincial capital. The vanguard of several Red divisions rustling south trying to seize the vital port of pusan simply flowed around them, encircled the city and blew up the river bridge behind them on the escape route to dark with just my face out of the water so I could breathe." Enemy troop convoys rolled over the culvert as Red patrols prowled about. A bright moon was shining when Hicks crawled out. And there were so many enemy moving through that he had gone only 200 feet before he had to hide agsJn —this time under a roadside straw- pile. "It overhung a ditch," recalled Hicks, "and I sat hunched against the ditch wall under the slraw without food for six or seven days. I kind of lost track of time." Enemy Traffic Slow« He finally emerged when heavy enemy traffic slowed and-there was no full moon to keep him from trav- elllng al night. He was so wenk he f:>ll while trying to cross the rond. •He 1 crawled to n stream nml drunk the first water he had had since his canteen went dry four days before. That revived him. He got a meal of rice from a peasant hut, then walked for two nights across the mountains. But enemy troops grew more numerous as he approached .he Naktong River. He couldn't get through. It was then day. The Arkansas Supreme Court yesterday took under submission a law suit attacking validity of petitions lo inlliate the proposed ict. Since the Nov. 7 general election ballot must b« certified by Oct. 17 the court Is expected to hand down Its decision next Monday. Attorneys representing the we forces told Ihe court this morning j a se of 10. Jeweled Beauty Patches Ready dimples, shoulder or bare arm.

She added that the Jewelry can be removed at will—with no harm to the skin—fiom the forehead that It w»s being asked to rule on a case unlike anything "this court has ever considered." Harry Robinson, Little Rock attorney for the Arkansas Malt Beverage Association, said admission oy sponsors of the prohibition move that the petitions contain many Invalid signatures make the case unprecedented. He said the Arkansas Temperance League, which Is sponsoring the proposed prohibition' «ct, was late In filing Its petitions with Secretary of State C. G. Hall. Austrian Pianist Held on NEW YORK.

Th« Korean brought him rice every few days and kept him posted on war developments by drawing maps on the ground. Twice he found the lleu- enant fresh hiding places when searching Red patrols probed near. Hicks donned a white robe and a peasant straw hat. He marched for several miles wilh his friend past retreating enemy stragglers. Then he met some South Korean police who took him to an American command post. A U.S. intelligence major took down his story and then said: "Gee, you're lucky—we're going to have n swell meal tonight." "What is it?" nsked Hicks, hungrily munching some canned, rations. - ; "Rice," said the major.
