Another trouble is that such facts as there are ..tend to cancel each other out. For 'example, it is a fact that Steven- son has the automatic start of any Democratic presidential candidate. When members of the Stevenson staff here feel worried or depressed, they like to take out sent the Merwin family's interest. Stevenson went back to law school to finish out that term. Having lost a good deal of time from school he failed in two subjects. That summer, 1924, he became an editor of the paper, together with Davis Merwin. He stayed a year and a half. He had always liked newspapering anyway, and to this day retains his affection for it. His father, however, feared that the Stevensons might lose their in- terest in the Pantagraph through the litigation then pending. If this happened, he felt, young Steven- son ought to be able to fall back on the law as a career. Further- more, he already had invested con- siderable time in his law course. So Stevenson enrolled in Northwestern (Continued on Page 9, Column 4) ADLAI pencil and paper and do a little familiar figuring.

More than 100 members from all over the country attended the first bu- siness session of the meeting of the Alumni Association of the Mayo Foundation here Friday. The annual S300 award for out- standing research by any fellow or graduate student at the Mayo Foundation was divided equally among three doctors.

Eisenhower left for his New York headquarters with the cheers from Virginians of "I like Ike" ringing in his ears. On the Virginia statehouse lawn in Richmond, they howled their approval when he asserted that Sen. Harry F. Byrd more nearly represents their opinion than the Truman Fair Deal and added: "No- body owns you." After he had completed his speech and was walking down a wooden ramp, Eisenhower was caught in the crush of a crowd surging toward him. Suddenly the ramp cracked and crashed to the capitol steps a few feet below.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON i.fl The United Stales government stood squarely behind Ambassador George F. Kennan today in the face of an unparalleled propaganda blast from Moscow. But officials here conceded the Kremlin might fores his removal as envoy to the capi- tal of Communism. The sharp criticism was based on a Sept. 19 Berlin comment to reporters in which Kennan said, among other things, that contacts between Americans and Russian people in Moscow had been re- duced to the zero point. The situation was regarded by veteran State Department experts on Russia as being without pre- cedent so far as they could recall. Should Kennan be ousted, it was not clear whether the U.S. would force the withdrawal of Soviet Am- bassador Georgi N. Zarubin, who presented his credentials to Presi- dent Truman Thursday, but that was clearly a possibility. The situation is ironical for reason that when Kennan went to Moscow last May, after years of helping shape U. S. policy toward Soviet Communism, he went with the avowed hope of restoring more normal diplomatic relations and re- establishing some basis of courtesy and confidence in dealings between the two governments, Authorities Speculata The tendency of authorities here now is to speculate that this did not suit Russian purposes at a time when the Kremlin has a great campaign of hate against the Uni- ted States running inside Russia. The attack on Kennan is so bit- ter that according to normal dip- lomatic conduct it would inevitably mean he would be declared person- ally unacceptable, leaving the Uni- ted States EO choice but to with- draw him. Should he have to be withdrawn under such a Soviet demand now, the belief of responsible officials here is that the post would remain vacant and the embassy at Moscow be run by a diplomat of lesser rank until, at least, a new presi- dent takes office here.

In every age group, Democrat Stevenson holds about a 5 to 4 lead over Republican Eisenhower. This ratio holds for the 21-29 year olds; for those between 30 and 44 years of age, and for those 45 years of age and older.

The Republican nominee, noting I that he was being sponsored by the Democrats for Eisenhower, said that "any party that can produce a man like Harry F. Byrd seems to me to be a top-flight sort of outfit." Eisenhower said he disagrees with President Truman that there are "too many Byrds in Congress." He said Byrd believes "in in- tegrity in government, in thrift, in believes in the vir- tues that have made America great." "Why should I, because he has another political label, feel any- thing except the greatest admira- tion and respect for Eisen- hower demanded.

Yesterday Pravda, the organ the Communist parly, called Ken- nan a "slanderer disguised as a an enemy of the coun- try and a number of other things, and accused him of conduct unbe- coming a diplomat. He had been attacked before he was assigned to the Moscow job but not so bitterly as this. Yesterday at a news conference, Secretary of State Acheson said he thought the attack wholly un- justified and improper. He added that what Kennan said seemed to him to have been a very calm and accurate description of what life is like in Moscow. Authorities were uncertain why the Pravda attack should have taken such a violent form. Several speculations were obvious: 1. The Russians may have been looking for an excuse to dis- credit him as a preliminary to get- ting him out of the country be- cause they were afraid to have so shrewd an observer of Soviet af- fairs on the scene. 2. They may have seized upon this as a means of feeding their hate campaign. 3. Perhaps they were seriously upset by criticism which hit too accurately.
