Expects to Be Target In his combination of defense and attack, Stevenson voiced his con- viction he expects to be the target for a smear campaign in the next few that he considers Eisenhower responsible. 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. His speech was televised to the nation by NBC in a. last-minute arrangement. It was later broad- cast by recording over the CBS and Mutual radio networks. With this speech behind him the most emotional in all his campaign- set out early this morning by train for a sweep through politically potent New York State with its big chunk of 45 elec- toral votes.

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. "The candidate of the adminis- tration Eisenhower said, "has been taken over body, boots and britches by the administra- tion.

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
