Moreover, such sacrifices to expediency, rightly or wrongly, seemed relatively safe to the Eisenhower strategists, for still another reason. After a bad start, Eisenhower has become an incandescent pub- lic personality. Gov. Adlai E. Stev- enson may be much admired, but as a man he remains a dim figure to most of the voters. Eisenhower, on the other hand, is a figure warmly human, full of life, friend- ly and outgiving. How he succeeds in emanating such dynamic warmth through each day's gruel- "ling round of public appearances, no one can tell. But the emana- tion is powerful and the voters re- spond to it.

Company officials say eight men are missing and believ- ed dead. The explosion occured at a.m., but details of the blast were unavailable nearly six hours later. No one was permitted to enter the area. Damage to the plant was esti- mated at Additional thou- sands of dollars damage was done in Ashland, three miles across Chequamegon Bay, where hun- dreds of windows were broken. The main street was literally covered with glass from broken store win- dows. Showered With Glass An employe, working in the wrecked unit, John Rodkewich, Washburn, had left the building 20 minutes earler to-go and eat his lunch at another building a half mile away. As he stepped outside to return he was showered with, broken glass and plaster. He said when he left everything was in order. The blast scene is two years old and housed a process manufactur- ing "Nitramex" a by-product of T.N.T., used in ore mining. The community of Washburn is five miles from the DuPont works and there only one window was broken while buildings were shak- en. Du Pont DuPont maintains its own fire and police system at the works and the public is kept outside the fenc- ed area. Police officers from Ash- land were not allowed to see the wreckage and were not prepared to demand entry to the grounds. Fellow employes identified the men working in the building as Bud Bomey of Washburn, the fore- man; Carlton Moe, Carl Moe, Leo Swanson and Tom Ferguson all of Washburn, and Emil Haviar of Eenoit. The two men working on the transport system on the grounds were named as Ed Cud- more and George Hoerick of Wash- burn. All of them except Swanson were family men. Plant Manager B. A.

Significant answers to these questions are provided by results of a nation-wide survey made by Princeton Research Service's United States Poll a bare four weeks be- fore the election. They provide in- teresting sidelights both to the heavy registrations reported from many states, and the efforts of vari- ous nonpartisan groups to arouse voters to do their duty as citizens. The survey shows that when the poll was being conducted through- out the country, within the last 10 days, only 44 out of every 100 the nation's potential voters were taking much interest in the devel- opments in. the campaign. One out of every five persons were paying either no attention at all, or very little, to what was happening on the political fronts.
