Murder Trial Recessed by Election By WILLIAM NEWKIRK ' CLEVELAND I.<PI An election day recess today delayed a decision on whether James R. Manning, a convicted sex offender, should bo removed from the jury picked for the ?hcppard murdcn trial. Informed sources, however, indi cated Manning, would be replaced by an alternate juror and the tria would proceed. A declaration of a mistria was not thought likely. The controversy swirling about the real estate salesman the past two days has almost overshadowed the real issue in the trial: Did osteopath Samuel H. Shoppard, 30, beat his pregnant wife to death last July 4 after a purported affair with Susan Hayes, a pretty hospital technician? This is the state's allegation, which Sheppard Series of Career Assemblies Held at High School A series of Career Assembles are being conducted at Hope Higl School this year for the benefit o the Juniors and Seniors.

The poll takers figured the Dem•^rats on top in this congres pional election year. Thicr consen su: Democratic cor.lrol of the House and, perhaps, the Senate in Ihe 841h Congress. But the Republicans v/ere no despairing and the Dsmocrats were not indulging in any prema lure celebrations. Indication were that the trend will not be definite for hours after the pells close. It was good voting weather in up to 10 inches in Cleveland su- background. Defense Atty. William burbs. yesterday was dying down, j cforritran immediately demanded proof that Manning was a sex offender. With that trial was recessed until tomorrow. While Judge Edward Ely In in would not speculate on what course the trial will take Monday, it was believed he would refer to this Ohio law in deciding the Manning question: If before the final submission of the case to the jury, a juror becomes incapacitated or disqualified, he may be discharged by the judge. Court sources said that would enable the judge to discharge Manning and replace him with one of the two alternate jurors selected yesterday. the West, but raw and mean in the Midwest and East. The Easit's nas ty weather vas not, however, keeping the voters away from the polls. Many precincts, in fact, reported heavier than usual balloting. Early voting was heavy in New York up 16 per cent in some pre cincts, an average of 10 per cent in others.

Man Convicted in Shotgun Slaying DE WITT Wi Walter Baxter, 44, yesterday was convicted of first degree murder in the shotgun slaying of City Marshal Burt O. Burbank. Conviction on a first degree murder charge carries the death penalty. The Circuit Court Jury returnee the verdict of guilty after three hours of deliberation.

A small booklet contains suggestions for remedying .such fire hazards as may be found to exist. The Hope Chamber of Commerce and Fire Department is urging all building owners and occupants to voluntarily correct as many of the fire safety recommendations made bv visiting inspectors as rapidly as possible. Compliance with recommendations is not compulsory, it was pointed out. But in undertaking this campaign, the City of Hope this week is competing with some 20 other .midwestern and southern states which have undertaken si- miliar town inspection campaigns under the sponsorship of their local Chambers of Commerce. We want our clean-up record to put Hope on the top of the list of these 20 cities." the Board, of P£rectors of the Chamber of Coriv merce emphasized "by having a high percentage of voluntary compliance with recommendations which these visHIng inspectors may make." Building owners or occupants at he time their properties are sur- eved will be furnished with a list of fire hazards on their premises and with recommendations for ,her correction. Immediately fol- owlng the three-day survey all mildlng owners or "occupants will be sent postal cards so that they can report th» corrections they lave made so that these correc- ions can be credited to the Hope compliance percentage. Tabulation of corrections will be handled for he Hope fire-safety committee by larl S. Smalley, Executive Secre- :ary of the Fire Prevention Association. The red skeleton trademark, 'The Fifth Horseman," was adop ted by the Fire Prevention Association, President Roy Atwood explained, because it so aptly fits with the other four horsemen of the Apocalypse of the Book of Revelations of the Bible, who down through the ages have been the scourge of mankind, namely, war, famine, pestilence, and death. Fire, the "Fifth Horseman" takes more than 11,000 lives in the Unitec States and annually destroys close to a billion dollars worth of pro perty, most of it through needless fires. States.

Stevenson and Vice ident Richard M. Nixon. ]Vfr. Eisenhower formally endct the GOP campaig with a r\ca for a big voter turnout. He did not call directly for a Republican victory but said the election will "affec the''national life for the next tw years and even far beyond that.' Stevenson and Nixon would u on sharply partisan notes. With his 1954 presidential chances possibly riding on the elec- tiori iouctome, Stevenson accused the-Republicans of reaching "new depths" in politics by trying to divide; the nation. He said they had failed to earn a mandate to con r nub at the helm pf government.

He lashed Republican candidates or being "unable or unwilling to campaign on their record" and said they had "played on fear, mistrust ond suspicion, exploting t h o s e things that devide rather than those things that unite our people." ' Nixon, who carried much of th> load of the Republican campaign struck at Democratic critics who have been "sniping" at the admin- istratipn. He also accused the Truman administration nf taking too long to recognize the Red.threat in Asia which, he said, resulted in the Korean war. "Twenty months have passed since President Eisenhower took office," Nixon said. "Thp result of his policy has been a great, dramatic achievement.
