VACCARO CHICAGO Truman turned over the Democratic stand- ard to Adlai Stevenson today and ooked forward to the role of elder statesman. But the fire of the political war horse burned brightly as ever as he headed homeward into a hot Missouri party primary. In a sort of swan song to the Democratic party as its leader, he offered to whistle-stop the country for his successor. "We are going to win in 1952 the same way we won in he told a shouting, applauding party convention, "and I pledge you now that I am going to fake my coat off and do everything I can to help him win." It was after 4 a.m., when Tru- man got to bed in his suite on the fifth floor of the Blackstone Hotel. But he arranged to take off for Kansas City's Fairfax airpor shortly after 9 a.m. Th Farouk Abdicates As King of Egypt WASHINGTON 0) The State Department received word today that King Farouk of Egypt had been given an ultimatum by the military insurgents to abdicate at once and leave the country in six hours. The Egyptian state radio tonight in a broadcast said King Farouk bad abdicated and left the country, according to a report from Beirut, Lebanon, The king's abdication and de- parture had been requested by the new army commander in chief, ing Egypt in the royal yacht for .Europe. The broadcast said <he had ab- dicated in favor of his son, Crown Prince Ahmed Fuad; Cairo reports said Egyptian army troops surrounded Ras El Tin palace in Alexandria this morning and Farouk had been given a six- hour ultimatum to return to Cairo.

And Adlai Stevenson, the philosopher, the ponderer, the sensitive man, consciously measuring him- self and his capacities against the towering task he may be called upon to undertake.

The North- ern Democratic liberals need a few lessons in practical politics before they again presume to try to lead their party. A sillier and more illogical display than they have made could hardly be imagined. It must be understood that Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois was the first choice of almost all these high-minded, forward-looking think- ers. Immediately after President Truman's famous announcement that he would not run, W. Avereil Harriman himself spent three hours pleading with Stevenson to become a candidate. Virtually all the leaders of Americans for Demo- tt cratic Action followed Harriman in do everything I can" to making the same plea. Men like help utes. Predicted Victory Soon after his arrival in Chicago yesterday, Truman predicted con fidently that the Illinois governor would be nominated on a thirc ballot. People began to drop by his suite James A. Farley, former Democratic national chairman; Vice President and Mrs. Barkley; Frank McKinney, Democratic na- tional chairman, and others wise in politics. The President had hardly set- yards hotel about 8 p.m. (EST) before Paul Fitzpatrick, the New (Continued on Page 9, Column 4] TRUMAN St. Paul Man Dead in Mishap legs wide apart like the captain of a ship heading into a storm.

C., made special trips to Spring- field to try to persuade Stevenson to declare himself. Answer to Prayer Stevenson remained the answer to the liberals' prayer until the ac- tual opening of this convention. Indeed he was still the answer after the convention opened, dur- ing the early period when the word was going round that the President had given the nod to Alben W. Barkley. Sen. Estcs Kefauvcr of Tennessee did not attract the lib- erals. Few of them were so de- tached from reality as to imagine that Harriman could be nominated without President Truman's back- ing. The great hope of the liberals was that there would be a dead- lock, and that Gov. Stevenson would then be drafted. But what happened when the draft movement for Stevenson really got started? What hap- pened was that this event, which one might have sup- posed would have been receiv- ed as manna from heaven, at once drove the liberals into paroxysms of rage and, one must add, folly. Harriman himself behaved like the sensible and honorable man that he is. Although naturally piq- ued by Stevenson's re-emergence, be did not forget his own higr opinion of Stevenson. He did not. lose sight of his preference for Stevenson over the other candi- dates. He kept his head. But the general mass of liberals in the Harriman and Kefauver camps be- gan playing amateur convention politics, organizing a stop-Steven- son movement.

Mrs. Truman H< Grind Is Over for Harry By RUTH COWAN CHICAGO Oft Mrs. Harry S. Truman undoubtedly is the happi- est of all women who played lead- ing roles in the tense political drama here.

But, with her eyes weakened by a seri- ous operation, the colorful spec- tacle was to her a blur of dele- gates, blinding lights, noise. Yet she smiled. It was said that by failing to reject the draft movement, Steven- son had been faithless, although the very men accusing him of faithlessness had always meant to head a draft-Stevenson move- ment in the event of the expect- ed deadlock. It was also said, by the very same men who had beg- (Continued on Page 10, Column 6.) ALSOPS inated in such conventions and!

K Stacy of Washington, D. C. Ike Silent on Nomination Of Stevenson By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH DENVER Dwight. D. Eisenhower deferred comment to- day on nomination of Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois as the Dem- ocratic presidential on President Truman's fighting speech blasting the Republicans. Campaign headquarters of the general, the GOP.- presidential can- didate, indicated he might have something to say later in the day, after the Democratic National Con- vention nominates a Stevenson running mate. Eisenhower, vacationing about 70 miles west of here in the Colo- rado Rockies, listened over th'e radio yesterday to the early bal- loting in Chicago on selection of a Democratic standard bearer. But there was no immediate word at his headquarters here whether the general sat up for the nomina- tion of Stevenson and for the Tru- man and Stevenson speeches made early today. There was no inclination in the Eisenhower camp to look for any- thing but a difficult campaign gainst Stevenson, As the general has done, the H- inois governor promised to wage a fighting campaign. There was no inclination, either, among Eisenhower associates to discount the role Tcuman plans to plav in the campaign. Eisenhower and his vice-presi- dential running mate, Sen. Richard M. Nixon of California, will meet omorrow to chart campaign strat- egy for the fight against the Dem- cratic ticket. They will confer at he general's vacation cabin near Fraser, Colo. The general will end his 10-day acation after the conference with STixon, and will return to Denver vith the Californian. On Monday, Eisenhower will be ;in a series of conferences wit lepublican leaders. He will si lown first with Gov. Sherman tdams of New Hampshire, xvh ;as agreed to serve as Eisenhow r's political chief of staff. Later next week, the general wil meet here with Arthur E.

Bombers Overhead Four engined air force bombers passed over Cairo at roof top level in the direction of Alexandria, Cai- ro dispatches said. As the bombers flew over, a state council equivalent to a su- preme court was being held in Alexandria, apparently to draft the necessary legislation for the regen- cy after formal abdication. The meeting was attended by Naguib, Aly Maher, Minister of Justice Mohammed Roushdy Bey, Abdel Razzan El Sanhoury Pasha, chairman of the state council, and Vice Chairman Suleiman Be Hafez.

(CST) today. By JACK BELL CONVENTION HALL, Chicago Alabama's Sen, John Sparkman won shouted approval from the Democratic convention to- day as the vice-presidential nominee on a "talk sense" ticket headed by Gov. Ad- lai E. Stevenson of Illinois. It was Sparkman Ste- venson's personal choice by convention acclamation after the Dixie senator's only "rivals" Mrs. India Ed- wards and Judge Sarah Hughes had been put in nomination and then quick- ly pulled out. Selection of the tall, dark-hair- ed Alabaman gave the Democrats a team of men of the same age 52 who promised to work together to put a new look on the- Democratic party. Stevenson told the applauding delegates in an acceptance speech. last night he plans in the cam- paign to "talk sense to the Ameri- can people." As a former colleague of Steven- son's on the American delegation to the United Nations, Sparkman shares most of Stevenson's foreign and domestic policy views.
