Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican presidential nominee, waves to crowds lining the street.

Eisenhower was off to a roaring "crusade" for world peace today which he said could be achieved only by throwing the "wasters, the bunglers and the incompetents" out of office in Washington. To a wildly cheering throng of jam-packed into Convention Hall here last night, the GOP pres- idential nominee said: "Let's sweep this country with such a wave of resolve, determin- ation and action that the little men, the defeats, the false prophets of the false doctrine that it can't be done, will be tossed out of power and the real America given a chance to move in." TODAY s to Atomic Rods Missing From Camp McCoy CAMP McCOY, Wis. Camp McCoy officials Thurs- day said 27 metal rods top- ped with a radio-active mater- ial had been taken from the Fifth Army Chemical Warfare Training Center here. Col. H. R. Statham, camp commander, said that while nothing of a military secret na- ture was involved the rods were potentially dangerous. The rods were topped with Cobalt 60 and were used in classroom training for detec- tion of radio-active materials, Col. Statham said. He warned that within 10 hours the radia- tion from the Cobalt 60 would exceed the safety "ceiling" and that in 25 days the radia- tion could produce serious ill- ness and possible death to a person exposed too frequently.

Adlai Stevenson, primed for a fight, was to fly to Denver today to open a campaign tour of the West that his managers hope will outmatch Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower's thunderous sweep through the South. He expects to hit nine states in nine days, traveling mostly by air. In at least one speech, and possi- bly others, the Democratic presi- dential candidate intends to carry the fight to the Republicans, an- swering arguments, and attempting to mow down some of their major contentions. The Denver address tonight'will be aimed at the GOP battle cry, "It's time for a change." Heretofore, Stevenson has been largely occupied with setting forth his own ideas, laying the broad foundation of his campaign. He has not answered in detail Republican accusations about corruption in government, nor taken public no- tice of any direct attacks on him- self. Eye Ike Talks In passing, the governor has flipped a few political darts at the opposition. Mostly, however, he had concentrated on elucidating the principles of his own program. The Denver speech departs from this pattern. Stevenson's campaign manager, Wilson Wyatt, said he will "pay his respects for one or more of the catch phrases and slogans of the Republicans." Wyatt described the reports of Eisenhower's high powered drive through the South as merely "in- teresting." He added, "It hasn't worried us." Sen.

The Florida Democrat went on to say he considers it a "possibili- ty" that Eisenhower might crack the solid South and carry Florida, In a conference here with the gov- ernor yesterday Smathers urged him to campaign in Florida.

In announcing the appointment, President Truman said Fowler would continue for the time being in the defense production job until it is determined to what extent that agency can be welded togeth- er with the Office of Defense Mo- bilization. Fowler originally had advised Truman that he would undertake in 300 strikes at a Northeast Kore- an mining center, Sinhung, the U. S. Fifth Air Force said.

The eligibility figure is above the civilian population of voting age in 1948, when votes were cast in the November general election. Four years ago, the department said, 64.9 per cent of those eli- gible to vote actually cast ballots in the state. The department points out that many of those eligible to cast ballots cannot do so for such reasons as change of residence, no registration or lack of citizenship.

Winona Guard Unit Leaves for Plowville Twenty-one officers and men of Winona's State Guard unit are at Rochester and Mantor- ville, Minn., today to assist in traffic control for the state and national plowing matches. Company A, headed by Capt. Wayne T. Kirkham, left by private cars Thursday evening and will return Saturday eve- ning. The company will direct traf- fic at a crossroads at the small community of Wasioja, which is north of the plowing meet site. The men will work under the supervision of the Minnesota Highway Patrol and the Dodge County sheriff. Portions of two battalions of the State Guard will be at the site. Companies from Red Wing, Hastings, Rochester and Winona and a medical unit from Zumbrota will comprise the Third Battalion contingent. The Winonans will be biv- ouacked at the Rochester Arm- ory, but their headquarters will be at Mantorville. McCormick Predicts Third Political Party CHICAGO (ffi Col. Robert R. McCormick, editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune, predicts that another major political party will be in the field with a candi- date campaigning actively for president four years hence. "A new party has to come, be- cause there are too many of our people not now represented by either the Republican or Demo- cratic Col. McCormick said in an interview Thursday. Col.

"Each person, average that is, will take up a standing space two j by two square feet." explained W. i M. Roberts of Rochester, director of operations. "That brings it to standees per acre, or for the whole shebanp. Could be." Roberts added, however, that his committee would be "more than satisfied" if the expected crowd of just over shows up.
