MONDAY, JULY 28, 1952 BLYTHEVILU! (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE PIVB Texans Sweep 'Anti-Trumans' Back to Office Shivers, Daniel Gain Victories in Democratic Vote They Manufacture Foam Rubber Like Cake, Jut You Can Do a Great Deal More with It By CLAYTON HICKKRSON DALLAS, Tex, 'Wi — More than a million Texas voters turned a political coltl shoulder to Washington Saturday as they swept Gov, Allan Shivers back into office one nominated Price Daniel, state at (orney general to suc.ceed Texas retiring Sen. Tom Conn ally. Shivers and Daniel are antl - Truman administration Democrats, Shivers beat down the double barrelled challenge of Austin At torney Raph* Yarborough, backet by the pro-Truman faction of tin State DemocrnUc party, and Mrs Allene Traylor, San Atnonlo house wife. Incomplete returns gave him 672,459 votes to 305,802 for Yai borough, who conceded. Mrs. Tray lor polled only 29,863. Daniel was opposed by Rci Ijindley Beckwovth, regarded as a Truman administration favorite; and E, W. Napier, and unknown Wichita Falls attorney. A Sunday night count gave Daniel '(30,844 to 234.208 for Beckwortli and 12,947 for Napier. The voting was in the Democratic primary in which nomina- "• tion usually means election in heavily-Democratic Texas. The primary results nnd precinct meetings Saturday left the state Democratic outlook as uncertain as It has been. Another battle between state party factions over the bind- Jng of presidential electors to national party nominees seemed sure thing for the September state convention. Meanwhile, it appeared Martin Dies, original chairman of tin House Un-American Activities Committee, faced a runoff with former Lieut. Gov. John Lee Smith of Luubock for congressman-at. large: Dies held a majority until early Sunday night then Smith edged into the picture. The latest tabulation showed Dies with 48.24 per cent of the vote among the seven candidates. Shivers led the anti-Truman Texas 'delegation to the Democratic National Convention in Chicago last week. Daniel, a leader in the fight for state ownership of tidelands, called Beckworth a supporter. of,the Truman administration. Beckworth denied he had been influenced by the administration to take up the fight against Daniel, Dies had a long record of anti- administration activitity in Congress before he voluntarily retired in 1945 after _ the late President Roosevelt led' steady New Deal criticism,of Dies and his Communist-hunting committee. .; -.Also re-nominated for return to Washington were veteran Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn and Reps. Wright Patman of Texar- Jcana, Wlngate Lucas of Grapevine, O., Clark Fisher of San Angelo, and W. El. tBob) Poage of Waco. Opponents of Rayburn and Patman, Reagan Brown of Terrell and Joe McCasland of Jefferson, hud styled themselves anti-New Deal and Anil-administration. Ten U. S. representatives had no opposition in the primary while three seats —from which congressmen have resigned or will retire at the end of the year — were still in doubt. From sjx to eleven men sought the seats of Reps. J. M. Combs, Beckworth, and Tom Pickett. Rep. Omar Burleson, meanwhile, •pulled steadily away from Jack Cox of Breckenridge after trailing until Sunday's late counting. A runoff with Wharton County Sheriff ' t. w. buckshot Lane loomed for Rep. Clark Thompson of Galvcslon. NEW YORK OP)— (NEA)— Look j round you. Chances are you'll r>ee oni iHb ing that is at least partly nadc out of foam rubber. If not, it vill be in a year or so. Because industry is foaming at the mouth with excitement about the fabulous rubber product, and is using more of it every day. "This relatively new fruit of rub- jer research," says A. L. Freedland- •r, president of the Dayton Rubber :o., "has now given new employ- mem to thousands, helped stimulate Hundreds of new businesses, and aenefited consumers with scores of fresh Ingenious products that make life easier—and softer."

Ml — Sixteen persons, {«vni of them children were imprisoned for hours in a farmhouse on the Eastern Colorado sandhills by two sun-brandishing youths during a short-lived Sunday At New York's bustling Furniture Exchange, a building which house U.e wholesale showrooms of m<M of the nation's manufacturers, ai official .said foam rubber is "prett; near standard equipment." He sai< the product started as a luxur; item, but now it's included in th low price brackets — even in $2 chnir.s. The pillow department- In Gim bel's department store in New Yor reports that 39 per cent of all pi! lows sold are foam rubber. This fig urc is colored somewhat by the fac that the government has frozen all down and feathers, and the only pillows they sen, besides foam, are made from reprocessed feathers. Transportation is a gigantic con- eumer of.foam. It's used in buses, trains, planes and passenger cars. Most truck seats and backs are foam upholstered. So are crash pads 3 round the cockpits of fighter planes. The material is so versatile that it hf. c hundreds of unique applications It's being used for corn pads, paratrooper's shoes, lining the wards of mental hospitals, powder puffs, banana crate packing, circus animal decorations, padding the outfield fences of baseball fields. church pew kneelers, Insides of mu- sica 1 instrument cases—and falsies. Foam rubber is the generic term foi this wonder product. Actually, you buy It by different names,"the trade names of the manufacturers. These all contain the syllable ••foam"—there is "Koolfoam" and "Pillo-Poam" and "Foamex," "Mira- foam," "Wonderfoam," "Airfoam," 'Restfoam," "Texfoam," and "U.S. Koylon Foam." Foam rubber can be made of both natural and synthetic rubber, although the natural latex is still the biggest source. Synthetic foam is newer and does offer the possibility of much lower costs, but mass production -is yet to come in this field. flieht from Jail. The pair. Identified by State Highway Patrolman Darold Haii- sook as Olenn M"vnard, 10, of Amherst.

They surrendered meekly — without poing for their weanons — to rjouied into molds or spread in long sheets. It's then cured, washed, dried and sold. The .curing is again a secret process. . What comes out Is a product lhat has somewhere around 250,000 air cells to the cubic inch. This makes it light, clean, resilient, cool. Other pioperties it has picked up along the way make It odorless, durable, easy to shape, quiet and moth- and vermin-proof. The only thing it hasn't got is economy, but the foam fpncie-rs insist it lasts so long that II is Inexpensive in the long run, and, anyway, the price is coming down fast. As of Jan. 1. 1951, most of the restrictions for use of rubber in civilian items—imposed because of the emergency—were lifted. This har given foam a tremendous bounce. The newest use of foam rubber is for home-made upholstery, by wives and other handy people around the house. You can now juy foam by the yard, cut it with pair of scissors to fit a beat-up chau, then tack or cement it down. Or you can do what industrial upholsterers olten do—make a "topper" about an inch thick' and apply it .over the usual upholstery.

Passengers and crew members said they did not see the woman disappear. Capellaro, sitting next to her, said he was not looking in her direction. The woman's seat, next to a window and just forward of the door, was twisted and part of the cloth lining the celling of the cabin was ripped off.
