Officers full head of steam today for the presidential nominating convention that opens next week. This is a multi - candidate convention. wide as the great open spaces. Consequently, it is full of question marks, hot and cold running rumors, speculation and ballyhoo. About the only noints of agreement among candidates and supporters are that: 1. Nobody is i*oing to be named on the first ballot, or even on an "enrly" ballot. Some guesses on roll calls range un to 10. 2. Sen. Estes Kefauver. the tall man from Tennessee, will start out in front. 3. Somebody is going to get a powerful lift from President Truman and all the candidates are looking hopefully toward the White House for a .sign in the sky. No Opposition By Trumin If the president has danced with interest in the direction of any of the several front-runners, there is no indication of it here. The most any of the various camps can announce is that Tru- 1 man isn't opposed to their man. Sen. Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma, a brief visitor at the convention city last nii*ht. said he is certain "the president is not against me." Fort Smith, Ark.-(/P.)-One Oklahoma soldier was injured seriously and three others hurt in the explosion of an artillery piece on a Camp Chaffee, Ark., firing range near here yesterday. First Lt. John H. Mawn, camp public information officer, said Pvt. Melvin E. Kelly of /nadar- co, Okla., who received shell fragment wounds of the left arm and Sen. Richard B. Russell's cam- na'gn manager. Sen. Edxvin C. Johnson of Colorado, declared Rusftd! had seen the nresidenl last week, but that he did not know what nassed between them.

The injured soldiers were members of the 358th Field Artillery Bn., a unit of the 95th Organized Reserve Corps which is participating in a two-week summer training program. Mawn identified the less seriously hurt as: Pfc. Tony Tayler, Anadarco, Okla.; Pfc. Max G. Sims. Eakly, Okla., and Pfc. Orbie G. Wilburn, Hudro, Okla.

No Agreement, Both Sides In Steel Dispute Standing By Holt Critical Of Small Help For Old People Candidates Press Campaigns, Lambost Highway Department LJUIe Rock-f^P)-Jack Holt says that if he's elected governor, he'll see to it that "our old folks have more than $3 monthly to live on." The Little Rock attorney opened his campaign address at Paris, Ark., last night by reading a letter he said was written by the state Welfare Department advising a Logan County resident of its approval for $3 monthly in old age assistance. Holt then promised that as governor he'd remedy such situations. He also outlined an eight-point progrr-m for the Highway Department to "remove it from extravagancy waste and inefficiency." The points included: adoption of the Mack-Blackwell amendment giving highway commissioners staggered terms; an annual audit of department operations; give state purchases full publicity; [prevent members of state boards and commissions from doing business with the state; discharging of "purely political appointees"; stop campaign contributions from r state employes; building roads "on ( t h e basis of needs," and t h e set- I t i n g up of car pools to stop the iSte use ° W "" f ° r Pri " Aclivt Disaster Area Loans For Benton County Requested Pastures Hard Hit By Drouth; Aid Is Sought Skyrocket Plane Reaches Speed Twice That Of Sound Moffctt Field, Calif.-i.4VAn apparently inadvcrtant disclosure that the Skyrocket research airplane has flown twice the speed of sound was confirmed here to- Pilot Bill Bridgcman flew ils D5.S8-II Skyrocket faster a n j higher than any other piloted aircraft has traveled.

Meanwhile, t h e surprisingly durable and long-lived rumors about Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois were still haunting the corridors of the Conrad Hilton, Hotel, central nrcna for all the pre-con- ventlon hubbub. Stevenson says, virtually every hour on the hour, that he doesn't want the nomination. There is a report that the president no longer is trying to persuade him; another is that Jacob Arvey, of Chicago, one of the original and most emphatic backers of the governor, also has decided not to press him any further. But another story has it that the Illinois delegates are marshaling for u draft-Stevenson drive next week. i h o t h e M a n d i n g , c o d e d h e a d - ! 81 M l ° n at Paradise Air P° rt last ni * ht I The new record-holder tied up RiV ° r Pi0r al 7 = 12 M r 5 -!h ' and explnd ° d in f l a m e s ' Louis G u ~ \ *' -£' f ' * u u ° ^ V ° yage brou * ht t h e ! at least one person dead.

Judge Harry J. Lent ley said it might not always be possible to better Negro fadliMe* without reducing white facilities. Th* judge dlscu«ed the pottf- bflity of working out amicable settlements of several pending suits which challenge segregation in Arkansas schools. He said that although reduction in white schools "sounds harsh--th* law requires approximately equal facilities and it's a just law." One such suit, involving the Hughes school district of St. Francis County, w» s settled yesterday when Negro school patrons accepted an offer for improvement ; of facilities for their children.
