The Democratic presidential can- didate returned to Springfield from New York late yesterday. He leaves Monday morning by air for Grand Rapids, Mich., and goes from there to Detroit, Pon- tiac and Flint. His talks will deal mainly with labor problems, an aide said. Some political observers believe he may make Labor Day the occasion for advocating repeal of the Taft-Hartley Law. The governor told reporters re- By The Associated Press The annual Labor Day weekend automobile flood choked the na- tion's highways today, and toll of fatal accidents began to mount early. First reports of accident deaths numbered of them from highway night and early today. With an estimated 40 million cars on the roads during the sum- mer's last holiday fling, the Na- tional Safety Council predicted that 480 persons would be killed in traffic betwen 6 p.m. (local time) Friday and midnight Monday. The Labor Day death toll from traffic accidents last year was 461. The number of fatalities during the same 1951 holiday period from all It would seem to me that the area of agreement to attain the objectives of equal justice for em- ployer and employe is enlarging. And maybe it is better to remove the political symbolism of the name, 'Taft-Hartley' by repeal.

Shortly after a.m., as Nau- mann prepared to swing over the field and spray the corn, his wing caught on a guy wire for a power pole at the corner of the field. The plane .was hurled to the ground, landing on one wing, its motor thrown clear of the wreck- age. Naumann, however, remain- ed in the cockpit. He freed himself and left the wreckage, which did not burn. Eyewitness to the crash was Mrs. Lawrence Majerus, who phoned police and firemen here. The plane was considered a total wreck. No estimate of loss was available, however. The plane crash caused one power pole to split off about 20 feet from the ground. Flainviow, as a result, was left without electric power for a short period of time. By 11 a. m., how- ever, emergency power was ob- tained. Naumann was flying a Stear- man, a two-wing type of plane. Site of the crash is just south of the Lakeside Canning Co. near Highway 42. U. Britain Propose Iran Oil Peace Plan 3-Point Settlement Includes 10 Million Dollar U.S. Grant WASHINGTON Wl The United States and Britain today proposed a three' point settlement of the Anglo-Iranian oil crisis, including a grant of from the United States to Iran.' The offer was made personally by President Truman and Prime Minister Churchill to Iranian Pre- mier Mossadegh. This extraordinary personal par- ticipation by the two Western lead- ers stressed the gravity with which London and Washington regard the possibility of a Communist seizure of power in the strategic Middle Eastern country. The President and Prime Minis- ter said they "sincerely hope'1 their proposals for action will meet Mossadegh's "approval and result in a satisfactory solution." The three proposals were present- ed by the ambassadors in Tehran. In essence they are: 1. Submission to the World Court of the question of compensation to be paid to the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) for its property in Iran, nationalized 18 months ago. The claims and counterclaims of both Iran and AIOC are to be fully considered. 2. Appointment of "suitable rep- resentatives" for the Iranian gov- ernment and the AIOC to negotiate "arrangements for the flow of oil from Iran to world markets." 3. If the Iranian government ac- cepts the first two points, this is proposed: (A) AIOC will release for immediate sale 20 million to 30 million dollars of oil now held in Iran by a sort of legal blockade. (B) Britain will relax restrictions on exports to Iran and on Iran's use of British sterling and (C) The United States "will make an im- mediate grant of to the Iranian government to assist in their budgetary problem."

Ike Takes In Trial U.S. Count By PRINCETON RESEARCH SERVICE Kenneth Fink, Director PRINCETON, N. of the second nation-wide "trial heat" of voter preference by Princeton Research Service's United States Poll show Dwight D. Eisenhower is now running ahead of Adlai Stevenson, Princeton Research Service's United States Poll staff reporters asked a representative cross-section of the nation's voters: "Right now, which of the two the Democrat, or Eisenhower, the you personally favor for The result was: NATION-WIDE Eisenhower.........48.7% Stevenson 41.9% Undecided 9-4% When the "Undecided voters on this question were then asked which way they "leaned" now, the figures became: NATION-WIDE Eisenhower 52.5% Stevenson 45.5% Undecided 2-0% A comparison of today's findings with those reported by the United States Poll on August 17 shows that Eisenhower has registered a per cent gain. The August 17 United States results on the same question showed: Eisenhower, 51 per cent; Stevenson, 47 per cent; Undecided, 2 per cent. The split in sentiment among the various population groups in the nation has some interesting and significant sidelights. First, today's survey indicates Eisen- hower now has more support among rank and file Independents through- out the nation than does Steven- son. Here's how those without party affiliation indicated their choices: INDEPENDENT VOTERS ONLY, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower 53.5% Stevenson 40.8% Undecided 5.7% Second, younger votes those under 45 years of age are al- most evenly divided between the two major presidential candidates. (Over the last five years, Prince- ton Research Service studies have indicated that most younger voters lean toward the Democratic party.) Here are the results of the poll by age groups: 21-29 YEARS, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower.........47.6% Stevenson 50.2% Undecided 2-2% 30-44 YEARS, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower Stevenson ...........48.8% Undecided 1-8% 45 YEARS OVER, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower 57.5% Stevenson .........40.6% Undecided 1.9% Today's poll indicates Eisen- hower has not reduced the Demo- crats' lead in three important groups of voters, namely, manual workers, labor union members and big, city voters. Following are to- day's poll results in the three WORKERS, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower 46% Stevenson 56% Undecided 2% of the nation's potential voters. LABOR UNION MEMBERS, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower ..........43% Stevenson 52% Undecided 1% CITIES OVER, NATION-WIDE Eisenhower 45% Stevenson 54% Undecided 1% It must be understood that to- day's poll findings reflect only cur- rent opinion and. that much can happen during the next 65 days to change people's minds. Princeton Research Service's United States Poll will continue to follow shifts in voter preference, reporting on election events and showing changes as they occur right up to Election Day. Family of Four Hurt in Air Crash FALLON, Nev. family of four, lost in the air and out of gas, was injured when their light plane crash-landed shortly before midnight near the main gate of the Naval Auxiliary Field at Fallen. Bruce M. Towers, 30, charter pilot, was returning with his fam- ily from a Minnesota vacation to their home in Oakland, Calif. Towers suffered some broken bones. His wife, Idela, 33, suffered fractured legs and collar bone. Two children, Linda, 8, and Mickey, 4, suffered only from shock. m Truman to Work As Hard for AdlaiasSelf By ERNEST B. VACCARO WASHINGTON Ufi President Truman assumed a major role in the 1952 Democratic campaign to- day with disclosure of his first "whistle stop" schedule Monday j and Tuesday and a Western speak- I ing engagement in October. From all indications, Truman is going to stump just as hard for Gov. Adlai Stevenson's and with all his give-'em-hell fla- if he were running himself. Stevenson reportedly favors a less active role for the President. But Truman told a news con- ference last week Stevenson must run on the record of the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. And he intends to try to sell that record to the voters. His first major prepared address will be made at p. m., EST, Monday in the Sports Arena at Milwaukee under joint CIO-AFL auspices. That trip to Milwaukee blossomed this week into a formid- able stopping tour. To Talk in Montana Announcement that he will speak Oct. 1 at the dedication of the Hungry Horse Dam in Western Montana came yesterday, along with the Labor Day itinerary which indicates possibly seven off-the- cuff talks from the back platform of his special train. The President is expected to make the Montana trip by special train, too, and there are increasing indications that tour also would develop into a "whistle stop" drive. From now on out, the Demo- cratic National Committee may pay Truman's expenses because it .will be difficult for the President to talk without everything he says being labeled political. An exception is made by the White House to a scheduled talk Truman will make in Philadelphia Sept. 16 at a luncheon in connection i with the meeting of the American Hospital Association. 4 Die in Head-on Collision Near Chippewa Falls By The Associated Press A headon collision Friday that killed four persons and three other deaths resulting from accidents marked the eve of the Labor Day holiday weekend in Wisconsin. The collision occurred on three- lane highway 29, 5V4 miles south of Chippewa two opposite bound cars pulled out to pass vehicles and smashed together in the center lane.

Farmers Not to Blame For Record Food Bill By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON (SI Any recent increase in the family food now at a record high level cannot be blamed on farmers, Agriculture Department officials said today. These officials cited a department report issued late Friday which showed that the general level of prices paid farmers in mid-August was unchanged from mid-July. In fact, farm prices have gone up only 1 per cent during the past year. Officials also pointed out that erauy favorable weather conditions while retail food prices have been reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to be at an all-time high, prices received by farmers are at about 6 per cent below the peak reached in February of last year. The drought which affected wide areas during July and early August had little if any effect on farm prices. Some government officials had expressed concern that the dry weather could cause sharp ad- vances in both farm and retail food prices. Officials said that if present gen- Damage 12 Others in Hot Battle continue, total farm production would be larger than expected, j This couki cause a modest decline in farm prices during the months ahead. The farmers' economic situation was a little less favorable in mid- August than in mid-July because his prices as a whole did change, and prices he paid goods and production services and in not for used in farm family living went up a third of 1 per cent. Ike May Accept Compulsory FEPC By JAMES DEVLIN NEW YORK (Hi A hint that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower would accept a compulsory Fair Employment Practices Commission if Con- gress wanted one was voiced as he began his "last quiet weekend" be- fore the Nov. 4 elections. This view came from Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. of Massachusetts, chairman of the Republican presidential nominee's Advisory Commit- tee. Eisenhower has said he favors state, rather than federal action, to assure equal employment op- portunities. But Lodge, who made a flying trip from Boston to Eisenhower's headquarters yesterday, emphasiz- ed to newsmen that the general never had said, he would veto FEPC legislation. No Veto Expected Lodge said he personally did not assume, at all, that Eisenhower would cast a veto if an FEPC act Hurricane Will Miss Florida, May Hit Georgia MIAMI, Fla.

Stevenson of Illinois, the Democratic presidential nom- inee, of double-talk in espousing an end to filibusters that have blocked action on an FEPC. Lodge declared the Democrats had done nothing to eliminate fili- busters in the past four years they have controlled the Senate. He said Stevenson's running mate, Sen. John J. Sparkman of Alabama, openly opposed a civil rights pro- gram in 1950. Eisenhower, he said, was firmly opposed to filibusters. Slur at Legion Lodge's blast at Stevenson and another by Sen.

(AP Wirephbto to The Re- publican-Herald) Swarm of Red Jets Retaliate Biggest U.N. Raid of War SEOUL, Korea W> The U. S. Fifth Air Force said U. S. Sabre jet pilots shot down at least five Russian-built jets and damaged 12 others today in violent clashes near Suihc Dam and Sinuiju in extreme Northwest Korea. A swarm of 100 Red jets crossed the Yalu River from Manchuria less than 24 hours' after U. N; fighter bombers in record number Friday dealt the North -Korean capital of Pyongyang one of the heaviest blows of the war. Air Armada Seventy-nine Sabres engaged the Red jets the largest Communist ah- armadas to appear in months. The air force said one of the 12 damaged Red fighters probably was destroyed. The fiery battle upped the U.N. toll for August to a record of 32 MIGs destroyed, three probably destroyed and 42 best monthly record of the war. U. N. losses, if any, were not announced. They will be covered in a weekly summary due next Friday. Friday's giant dawn -to dusk strike against Communist army and political nerve centers and factories at Pyongyang was car- ried out with few if any U. N. plane losses, the Fifth Air indicated. None Downed The Navy said none of its car- rier based fighter bombers which flew 250 of the record individual flights over Pyongyang was shot down. In its summary for the week ended Friday, the Air Force said three U. N. planes were lost to ground fire and one to un- explained causes the past seven days. Whether they were on the Pyongyang raid was not disclosed. Seventeen Japan-based B29 Su- perforts last night followed up the three-wave Pyongyang assault with a raid on newly repaired Red power installations at the Changjin Reservoir in Northeast Korea. A U. S.
