Record Vacation Spree Is Expected During Weekend Vacationists* Exodus Is ^ Likely to Set All Time Marie The greatest three-day vacation spree in history will hit California July 4 weekend, it^was predicted today by the Automobile Club of —— SQuthem-California- Coronans and all other citizens are expected to • take advantage of the three days of vacation. With facilities at most hotels and resorts already sold out, thousands of motorists who fail to m^ake reservations before leaving home will be forced to sleep in J' their cars or to camp out, a club J spokesman said. The unprecedented exodus of vacationists from cities to crowded California playgrounds will be iigravated by the record-break-S Influx of out-of-state cars. It was pointed out that during, e first five months of this year the number • of out-of-state vehicles entering Southern C^ifor-nla was 25 per cent above the same period in 1951, which was an all-time high. Stating that the three-day death toll across the nation will hit a record high by Monday, the auto club spokesman urged drivers to help curb traffic fatalities in California. "Motorists can save lives .this holiday by obeying traffic rules and by not driving after they have become fatigued," he added. Further warning was directed at d;-iyers who seldom get out of city traffic. "These motorists often fail to realize that greater driving skill j and precautions are needed when I operating a vehicle on high-spe'ed I highways," he aald.

This month, Chicago c,eally will be the windy city. All the cows in the stockyards will be crowding around to listen to the bull. The G.O.P. would really like a candidate napied Robert A. Eisenhower or Dwight D. Taft. The convention will open with the national anthem and from then on the band will play "Who?" For the Republicans, July 7 opens the "whiching" season. Then they sweep out either the Taft or the Eisenhower buttons and the Democrats take over. The Democrats have so many candidates l}>ey may have a drawing instead .of a Vote. Kefauver has a flock of delegates, but the organization wants to give him the bird. Estes has proved that he's popular with Tom, "Dick and Harry, but not the right Harry. If it's Kefauver or nobody, Truman will be supporting John Q Nobody. This July will start with Inde pendence Day, and end up with everybody committed. (Copyrl«ht 19E2.

Ralph Brown, a neo-physi-cist from Fallbrook, spoke on the jaw-breaking subject of "The Bio-Social. Approach to Economic Problems" in which he said that principles of physics could be applied to ecenomic problems and then went into an explanation of neutrons, protons, magnetic fields and other such abstruse terms to prove his point—which he probab ly did. Much easier to understand was the report oA tlie International Lions club convention in Mexico City which was attended by Pres ident Earl Walker and Glen James They flew to the meeting and managed to see quite a bit of Mex ico and Mexico City as well attending the convention sessions, This was the first meeting that President Earl has conducted since becoming president and he started ofi with a 'bang by it's being his birthday and then, to boot, he gave himself the , day's prize.

She hopes ot swim the Catalina channel, something no women ever has done. The 32-year-old stenogi-apher says she also will try to break the record. If she does, it means Miss Chadwick probably Will reach the other end of the 21-mile channel at mid-afternoon tom^orrow, since she'll have to do it in around 15 hours. George Young holds the record. He .swam the choppy channel in 15 hours, 45 minutes back in 1927. DEWEY SAYS TAFT CAN'T WIN ON FIRST BALLOT New York's Governor Dewey predicts that Taft will not recpivo enough votes on the first biUlot for nomination as Taft has claimed. Dewey says actually Taft will get le.-js than 500 votes when the convention votes for the first time. Dewey Is a supporter ot General Eisenhower. He says Taft's prediction of 603 or 604 votes on the first balloting is "just the old propaganda line". Dewey then went on to forecast that Eisenhower will win the nomination on an early ballot. By United Press The new Red proposal on prisoners of War clearly is not enough. The interesting part of it is the hint that in secret dlacuB&lona the Reds might be willing to yield a little more. Actually, the offer on it.s face contains nothing now at all. Over a month ago. Rod General Nam II said the Reds would not demand repatriation of South Koreans, only of North Korean and Chinese prisoners. He's Just putting that more formally now with his suggestion for reclassl-ification of tho prisoners by nationalities. However, It's obvious that any Korean prisoner who didn't want to go back could claim ho was a South Korean and there would be no effective way to disprove the cltim, considering the inadequate identification facllltloa available. Even tho Reds do not luiow how many or which of their men who have been captured by the Allies are really South Korenas and how many are really North Koreans. But tho Allies would have to give in on the moral principle of voluntary repatriation and that's bad. AIS9, there Is no provision for the red prisoners who don't want to go back. At tlie lh»t screening, well over half the Chinese aald they didn't want to go back. So, there Isn't much chance yet of a aettlment on the ba«'» o' the i\ew proposal. The worst thing about It 1b that it will bo mlaropresented In Europe. Wishful European bo-clallsts will jump to tho conclusion again that a truce la Just aruDtid tho corner and that tho AIHch should stop practically all military pressui-o against tho rods, -HI,- Fighting Mad Gen.

Tho Republican national committee today again voted heavily In favor of Senator Taft when It approved tho 13 disputed GOP delo^; , gates from luoulsiana today. Tho committee approved 11 Taft dele^. gates and two backing Eisenhower. Tho general said tho Republicans can't win in November unlesi tho party—in his wordsi—"comes Into court with clean hands." Therefore, ho said, "1 am going to ask every delegate to help in,, this fight for fair proceedings at tho convention." Finaly, Eiselnhower said: "Now tliat I'm in the fight, Tm In It with all I've got. After all, I'vo been a fighting man all my life." Following his Speech, the train pulled out of tho Ij)envcr station and headed cast toward Chicago. Tonight, Elsonhower will stop over in Lincoln, Neb., to make a speech. Ho'll make scvoral more Bpeechea at stops along the way tomorrow, arriving In Chicago Satunlay. Senator Taft, already In Chicago, has challenged Elsenhower to attack-tho administration during his cross-country trip. Speaking to newsmen, Taft aald: "I notice Eisenhower intends to roar acroaa tho coimtry. I only hope ho roara out against Truman, Acheson and Brannan as well as tho Republicans." TAFT STILL INSISTS HE WILL WIN AT START Taft repeated his claim that he has enough delegate votes linftd up to win tho nomination on tho first ballot.

Forestry men are primarily concerned with the fire hazard involved. U. S. Forest Sei-vice officials wamed that fireworks will not be permitted within the boundaries of the National Forests. Persons bringing fireworks into recreation areas within the Cleveland National. Fore.st will likely run into road blocks and any fireworks in their possession may be confiscated.

STEELE DENVEIR, Colo. (U.i;) — A fighting mad Gen. Dwight D. psen-hower leaves today for tho Rcipub-lican national convention pledged to crusade for a "clean, decent operation" at Chicago. Elsenhower, stung by what ho regards as hlgh-hnnd«ui Republican national committee tactics, stepped aboard his special train this afternoon to begin a slow, barnstorming trip through tho fai-m-rlch Middle Woijt. Ho regards tho flght as the battle of hi» life. Ho ifl detei'mlned to pursue It on tho basis of what ho eecB as a moral principle, regardless of tho outcome. Informed by d reporter of the national committee vote In Chicago to replace Georgia's pro-Blson-howci- delegation With a slate pledged to Bon. Robert A. Taft, the general snapped: 'I'll tell you this, though. I'm going to roar clear across the country for a clean, dccent operation. TTus American people deserve it." He will make at least nine back platform kppearancen from his campaign train, apeak from tho steps of tho Lincoln, Neb., state capitol tonight, and participate in tt nationwide television broadca.st on Friday. The program: 1. Expectation that fclBonhow-er will hit hlp-and-thlgh at what ho regards aa a brazen effort by the national committee to deal him out at tho convention. 2. Hope among tho Elsenhower leaders that tho general, stearning his way oerosH country, can stir up public reaction to the national committee votes on tho disputed state delegations with a view to overturning them In tho convention's own credential« committee and on tho convention floor itself next week. 3. A belief by Ei.'jenhower lead-cr.i that many delegates who expect to cast a first ballot vote for Taft, will shift to^the General thereafter, and confidence that Taft claims of delegate strength support of tho telegram. , It was read to newsmen at a hnBtUy-colled news conference by Gov. Dan Thornton of Colorado, an Elsenhower supporter, and CJov. J. Bracken Lee of Utah, a Taft man.
