He did not use the word "smear" in his address but he left no doubt of his meaning when he spoke to a wildly cheering crowd in the Cleveland Arena.

In Kansas, which has had the driest six months period on rec- ord, much of the 1953 wheat crop that has been seeded has not sprouted for lack of moisture. Fed- eral and state agricultural agen- cies reported that plants that have sprouted are beginning to die in some areas. The federal and state agricultur- al departments reported soil in the two-thirds of the state the driest in a decade. Wheat that has sprouted in the far northwest sections of Texas is at a standstill. Some farmers haven't even tried to plant their wheat which at this time of the year should be growing to survive the winter. Oklahoma farmers have planted their wheat in powder dry soil, hop- ing a soaking rain will come along to make a crop. Harold Sutton, president of the State Board of Agriculture, said, however, next year's crop is not necessarily hurt, if rain conies in the next two weeks. But it broke out frequently with cheers and the ringing of cowbells during his address, and at the end. Eisenhower declared the opposi- tion was tearing the nation's moral unity apart with "rabble rousing" tactics in a desperate attempt to keep control of the White House. The general aimed his fire prin- cipally at President Truman's ad- ministration, but also rapped Ste- venson in a newly stepped-up cam- paign against the Democratic nom- inee.

Y (Kl Secretary of State Dean Acheson backs up U. S, demands for a just and speedy peace in Korea today with a speech American sources say will be the longest of his career. The U. S. secretary, his aides disclosed, would "open the whole book" on the deadlocked Korean truce negotiations, including secret high-level diplomatic efforts to end the fighting, in the General Assem- bly's powerful 60-nation Political Committee this afternoon. Acheson, scheduled as the first speaker, was expected to talk about three hours. Already before the committee was a resolution Acheson sub- mitted Thursday asking the As- sembly to endorse the armistice terms laid down by U. N. negotia- tors at Panmunjon and to urge the Communists to accept them. Britain and several other U. S. allies have promised to co-sponsor the resolution in the bitter fight expected on the committee floor. Acheson's revelations to the com- mittee are certain to touch off long and bitter replies from Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky and repeat- ed echoes from other Soviet bloc any formal ac- tion can be taken on the American resolution. Observers looked for the Communists also to throw in counter-resolutions. 50 Minnesota Editors See Ike Winning October Estimate Shows GOP Leading State by 6 Per Cent MINNEAPOLIS W) Minnesota editors believe that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower has a chance to become the first Republican can- didate for president since 1928 to j carry Minnesota. The combined mid-October esti- mate of 50 of them is that Eisen- hower will get about 53 per cent of the state's vote to 47 per cent for Gov. Adlai Stevenson, the Dem- ocratic nominee. Six weeks ago the editors put Minnesota in the doubtful column, with only a slight leaning toward Eisenhower. If the general does carry the state, he will be the first Repub- lican presidential candidate since Herbert Hoover to do so. And the result looked for by the editors would require a sharp shift from 1948, when President Truman won Minnesota by more than and Republican Thomas Dewey carried only 13 of the state's 87 counties. Editors Expect The editors also expected Sen. Edward J. Thye and Gov. C. Elmer Anderson, both Republicans, to be returned to office. They estimate that Thye will get 62 per cent of the vote to 38 per cent for William Carlson, the Dem- o c r a 11 c-Farmer-Labor nominee, and that Anderson will get 60 per cent to 40 per cent for his DFL opponent, Orville Freeman. In its last report on the presiden- tial race, in late September, the Minnesota Poll gave Eisenhower 53 per cent, with 41 per cent for Stevenson, six per cent undecided or for other candidates. The Min- nesota Poll, sponsored by the Min- neapolis Tribune, is a scientific sampling. In an Oct. 10 report, the Minne- sota Poll showed Thye with 61 per 'cent of the vote, Carlson 33, five per cent undecided and one per cent refusing to name a choice. The same report listed 63 per cent favoring Gov. Anderson, 32 per cent Freeman, four per cent unde- cided and one per cent refusing to name a choice.

The Ohio senator, addressing a GOP rally on behalf of the candi- dacy of Dwight D, Eisenhower, to whom he lost the Republican pres- idential nomination last summer, said the President is trying to sur- round himself with an aura of in- fallibility. "Every once in a Taft said, "the President says 'I see an even when there is no emergency." Truman, Taft added, "started a war in Korea without authorization of Congress. He claims the right to send U. S. troops wherever in ftu world he and added: "Stevenson is a true disciple of the Truman philosophy." Taft said Stevenson's only appar- ent "measure against the Commu- nists is price He said he arrived at this conclusion from an analysis of Stevenson's argument that Soviet Russia largely deter- mines the American budget be- cause such a large percentage of it goes towards defense appro- priations.

The editors' vote estimates were applied to the 1948 vote in their counties and the re- sults combined to get statewide estimates. Participating Papers Of the participating papers, 30 are Republican, four Democratic, and 15 independent. Thirty-five of dailies an'd 19 weeklies- are supporting Eisenhower. One daily and three weeklies are back- 'ing Stevenson. Ten editors who are supporting Eisenhower expect Stevenson to carry their counties. Twenty-four picked the general to carry counties Truman won in 1948. In revising their estimates from early September an almost equal numbers of editors saw each can- didate gaining. The larger gains were seen for Eisenhower. Twenty-two editors raised their Eisenhower percentages and 21 in- creased their estimates of the Ste- venson share of the vote. Five edi- tors who had expected Stevenson to carry their counties shifted to Eisenhower. Two revised their es- timates the other way. Convicted Woman's 2 Babies Flown To Red Wing muiiim <uiu, "auv.

Noting that President Truman is scheduled to visit Minnesota Tuesday, Nixon said: "The entire record and 'red her- ring' attitude of the President and U. S. State Department are such that if they had their way the traitor-spy Alger Hiss, would be free today and voting for the Tru- man candidate Nov. 4." On Stevenson, Nixon said the Illinois governor used "shockingly bad judgement" in making a de- position for Hiss during the letter's perjury trial.

"We hear Nixon continued "that Stevenson claims we have 'smeared' him. The best and only answer, I have found, is the facts. These are the facts and I challenge Stevenson or his supporters to re- fute a single one: Knew Hiss "Stevenson knew Alger Hiss and was his friend for 18 years. He testified voluntarily that Hiss' reputation for loyalty, truthfulness and honor was good. "Stevenson came to the defense of Hiss after Hiss had been indicted by a federal grand jury for per- jury, after the 'pumpkin papers' had cast grave doubts on Hiss' reputation, and after the respon- sible press and members of Con- gress had reported charges reflect- ing on Hiss' loyalty." ig on niss wyaiiy.

Susan Peters Willing to Pay Lewis Miners Increase Seek Approval Of President On Daily Hike By ROWLAND EVANS JR. WASHINGTON (Si The soft coal industry today was reported framing an" appeal to President Truman and Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam to approve the S1.90 daily wage hike won by John L. Lewis, The nation-wide soft coal strike, now in its fifth day, followed a Wage Stabilization Board ruling last Saturday that only Sl.50 of the negotiated increase could be paid on grounds that any more would "damage" the stabilization program. The report that an appeal is under study came from an official who has been in close touch with all phases of the case but who asked not to be identified. A substantial portion of the struck industry was described as just as eager as Lewis to settle on the full wage increase and get production going again. An appeal to the President and Putnam, it was felt, would at least serve to remove the deadlocked situation from dead center. Air of Uneasiness An air of uneasiness prevailed in some mine areas. Violence flared in Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia yesterday. At Zanesville, 0., a non-union mine owner was forced from his car at gun point and slugged. His mine superintendent was fired on twice, and bis equipment set afire after he fled. Gunfire exchanged between seven miners of a non-union oper- ation at Oakwood, Va., and an un- identified group that attacked their cabin. No one was hurt. It was the second time this week that gua play occurred in the area. Dynamite blasts wrecked one I steel railroad bridge, and severely i damaged another belonging to a i struck coal company near Widen, W.Va. Earlier this week train crewmen reported they were fired on. Efforts to find a way out of the wage boost dilemma also were be- ing made by David L. Cole, new chief of the Federal Mediation Service. Cole, Lewis and Harry M. Moses, president of the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, con- ferred privately late yesterday afternoon. Precisely what they dis- cussed was not "learned but it looked like the first attempt by a government official to find some solution to the deadlock. Industry Lawyers Industry lawyers have spent the last few days in close scrutiny of the Defense Production Act, which contains the authority for price and wage controls. They were de- scribed as convinced that either Putnam, the overall administrator of the stabilization program, or the President could overrule the WSB. An appeal to the WSB itself would also be possible but the in- battle last night. The attractive 31-year-old, star, whose spinal cord was damaged in a hunting accident seven years The industry was described as not too hopeful that an appeal would be successful. Putnam has already praised the WSB, headed by Ha'rvard law Prof. Archibald ago, died while visiting her brother Cox, as "very courageous" in mat ing its cutback decision. But Tru- i man has not said a word, either In 1944 Susan was hailed as one j the WSB ruling or the strike. of filmdom's most promising ac-1 WSB has never been over- tresses, and her future looked bright. Then on New Year's Day, 1945, she went duck hunting with her husband. As she reached for her rifle, it accidentally discharged, sending a bullet through her stom- ach to lodge in her spine. After months of hospitalization, Susan went from the waist down. The doctors told her she'd spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. Two years later she came back to star in a movie once this time as the crippled girl in "Sign of the Ram." She acted from her wheelchair, just as she did in the "Miss Susan" series for tele- vision she completed in Philadel- phia prior to coming here. Her death was attributed to com- plications arising from the 1945 ac- cident. The brother, Robert Carna- han, said her only other survivor ruled in the past but, at the end of last summer's sleel strike, the White House approved an increase in the price of steel nearly twice as high as that authorized by then Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall.
