I have tried to explain the issues as I see them and the records of the parties. I have tried to educate. If I have not succeeded altogether I have certainly educated myself about those questions, and also about those wonderful human beings that are America. “I have not done as well as I should like to have done, but I have done my best, frankly and forthrightly; no man can do more, and you are entitled to no less.” Jabbing at the Republicans in his final address, Stevenson said, The economic well-being of . cannot be safely en- •Iowa Vote (Continued from Page I.)

The general warned that “more powerful and more horrible” weapons cannot of themselves bring peace, and said that above all America must be armed with “devotion to the morality of freedom.” This, he said, “demands cleansing our hearts of even the faintest stains of prejudice or bigotry,” which could divide the nation. “Decisive Moment.” In his speech, Eisenhower said the traditional way to wind up a campaign was to talk in “the lusty language of a booming rally.” He added that he was not going to do that because: “I face this occasion—this moment—with the conviction that this is not just another election, not just another clash of political personalities or political parties. This is a troubled and decisive moment in the history of man’s long march from darkness toward light.” Talking of peace, Eisenhower declared: “Because I have learned that peace is the dearest treasure of free men, I have dedicated myself to one supreme cause: to strive to keep war from ever again wounding the bodies and scarring the spirit of America’s youth.” Must Fight Poverty. Talking next of the evil the Free World faces in its struggle for peace, Eisenhower said “the menace of godless communism does not stalk us merely as a new version of old tsarist ambition.” Then he added: “The final source of this menace is nothing so simple as material need. Poverty must be fought by free men for its own evil—and that fight needs no other purpose. In the United States, we must have a social program so effective that no doctrine of political desperation can ever take root.” Eisenhower said that if he is elected, he would live his life “with a fervent prayer for God’s direction and compassion, that I may humbly help our people to live in honor, freedom, and in peace.” were long lines waiting. Other reports: Dubuque—Twelve of 16 polling places in the city report more than 6,500 votes cast by noon. Balloting running about 2 to I over 1948. Long lines waiting at most polling places.

All precincts reported increases of 30 to 80 percent over 1948 in voting up to noon. Davenport—There had been 15,000 ballots cast up to noon. That is slightly more than one-third of the 44,000 registered voters. The vote by 2 p.m. in 1948 was 13,000.

DOUBLE AT MARION. More than double the voters who turned out at the 1948 presidential election had cast their ballots in Marion at noon. The vote in the four wards at that hour was: First ward, 276; Second, 428; Third, 357, and Fourth, 331. Total, 1,566.

At the disposal area, ash residue from the incinerator is ex-* pee ted to constitute much of what is dumped. Also taken will be metal rubbish, truck tires, furniture too large for incineration and material unsuitable for burning in general. Regular covering of the debris with dirt will keep the area clean and free from fires, thd mayor emphasized. Department Changes. In the sanitation department. Sedlacek revealed, Assistant Health Officer Carl Smith will resume his duties as superintendent of the incinerator, dump and collection crews. Smith was lifted from that job during Clarence Sedive*s term as mayor when sanitation department members were permitted to elect their own foreman, John Seel. Seel now will serve as working foreman at the incinerator, according to Sedlacek. Smith also will continue his duties aa city restaurant inspector. This arrangement, according to Sedlacek, will restore the supervisory scheme to a proper alignment for maximum efficiency and control. The sanitation department now has about 39 men, officials reported. Four men will operate the incinerator. When the incinerator is functioning smoothly again, Sedlacek indicated, he will announce an “open house” for the public, probably on a Sunday. The mayor also voiced appreciation for the cooperation and tolerance of residents along Memorial drive during the old city dump’s temporary use in that locality. McKinley Students Say They Like Ik* McKinley high school students, in a poll taken Tuesday, showed a majority preference for Eisenhower over Stevenson in the presidential race and gave Gov. Beardsley the nod over Herschel Loveless in the gubernatorial contest. The vote was: Eisenhower .............420 Stevenson ...............367 aaa Beardsley ...............448 Loveless ................435 The discrepancy in the number of votes cast in the two races was the result of spoiled ballots. The poll was taken by government and journalism students at the high school.

No note was found, but friends said he had been ill and suffering from nervous depression since the fall of 1951. Around Iowa Two Alligators Stage Seven-Day Death Fight JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UP) — Two young alligators got into a week-long fight here which ended up in death for one and multiple wounds for the other. “This is the third time in the last seven or eight years they’ve had a fight,” said Mrs. Joel Richards, proprietress of a curio shop where the battle occurred. She estimated the ’gators to be about 25 years old. A third saurian in the pen paid little attention to the death struggle. Mrs. Richards said he was about 200 years old and was probably getting a little senile. One-Way Streets — Des Moines City Manager Leonard G.
