This is the picture of political sentiment in the nation as revealed by a Princeton Research Service United States Poll in all of the 48 states: 1 Dwight Eisenhower leads in 23 states, with 278 electoral votes. The new typhoon was churning its gigantic package of ravaging winds 700 miles east of Leyte Is- land at 2 p. m. The. Weather Bureau said it packed a more vicious punch than its predecessor which hit Southern Luzon with winds in excess of 135 miles an hour. Winds in the new typhoon, called Wilma, were esti- mated at 150 miles an hour veloc- ity. At its present pace and path, the new typhoon should roar in on Manila late Tuesday, the Weather Bureau said. Southern Luzon, Ley- te, Samar and Northeast Mindanao were in the danger zone. Typhoon Trix devastated a wide strip of Southern Luzon, totally destroyed Legaspi City, an East Coast port of population, and the smaller coconut port of Tabaco. It left one-half million persons homeless. PreJiminary estimates of damage to crops, schools in public Albav buildings and province alone were put at 40 million dollars by the governor. Hurricane Points 100 Mile-an-Hour Winds to Bahamas MIAMI, Fla. (.fl A severe hur- ricane that battered across Cen- tral Cuba prowled today along a course that pointed its winds of 100 miles an hour or higher at several islands in the Bahamas. It appeared that the Southeast Florida Gold Coast would feel no dangerous winds as the storm's center passed only 60 miles east of the Miami-Palm Beach area late today Kidnap Trio May Have Split-Up, Gone in Hiding ATLANTA Three fast-mov- ing bandits, who snatched hos- tages in wholesale lots and trav- eled in stolen cars, may have split up and gone into hiding around Atlanta. That was a major possibility considered by state, local and fed- eral officers today as a 13-state alert continued for two ex-convicts from Florida and a teen-ager from Nashville, Tenn. During a three-day spree through Georgia, into Tennessee, and back to Atlanta, the trio kidnaped 20 persons and stole three cars and a pick-up truck. All hostages ap- parently were released after a short period. The latest victim, Herschel My- ers, 20, of White County, Tenn., told police he was forced at gun- point to drive the trio from Spen- cer, Tenn., to Atlanta yesterday. He said one of the bandits got out about 20 miles from Atlanta and the other two at different places in the city. Stolen Car Transported A federal warrant charging kid- naping and transporting a stolen car across a state line was issued last night against James Francis Hill, 29, of Framingham, Mass.; Charles Edwards Hopkins, 19, of Jacksonville, Fla.; and Virgil Le- may, 15 of Nashville, Tenn. Hill and Hopkins were released from NATION-WIDE Eisenhower Stevenson 47.3% Undecided 2.5% The last previous survey, report- ed by Princeton Research Service Sunday, Oct. 19, showed Eisen- hower getting 51% of all the votes; Stevenson. Undecided, Today's figures reveal a .5% de- crease in the undecided vote, a loss of eight-tenths of one per cent for Republican Eisenhower, and a gain for Democrat Stevenson, The following table gives the standings of the presidential candi- dates in each of the 48 states. In a number of states, the lead is very slight. Events and cam- paigning may shift some of these states from one candidate to an- other.

Adlai Praises FDR, Says U.S. Won't Go Back Attack on Eisenhower Into Massachusetts By DON WHITEHEAD SPECIAL IN NEW YORK W Adlai Stevenson's bitter and scath- ing attacks on Gen. Dwight D. Acheson Blames Russia Fully For Korea War Introduces Bill Urging Communists To Accept Peace By OSGOOD CARUTHERS UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. W) U. S. Secretary of State Dean Acbeson accused Russia last night of deliberately planning and carry- ing on the Korean War. He warned United Nations delegates that the U.N. "cannot buy peace at the price of honor." Speaking before the U.N. Gen- eral Assembly's powerful Political Committee, Acheson asked the 60- nation assembly to approve the conduct of the United Nations war effort. He introduced a resolution- backed by 20 the Communists to accept an armistice on the U.N, terms. Acheson's nearly three hour speech was a calm detailed review of the Korean War, all that led up to it, and the drawn-out attempts to end it. One U. S. spokesman des- cribed it as a "kind of verbal white book." The secretary of state declared the United States would do every- thing in its power to achieve an "honest armistice" if the Commu- nists wanted one. "But if this is not the he warned, "and if the resistance must go on, then we shall have to examine our position and our abil- ity to carry that resistance for- ward."

Wl Fire puncture the prestige of his GOP opponent in the closing days of the presidential campaign. Stevenson appeared finally to have taken a leaf from the cam- paign book of President Truman, who picked Eisenhower as his main target days ago and set out to sell the voters on his views. The -Democratic presidential can- didate let down the bars Wednes- day night in Cleveland, when he accused Eisenhower of condon- ing a "sly and ugly campaign." He has hammered on this theme since. It was expected to be a promi- nent part: of his speech-making barrage today as he moved from New York State into Massachusetts to follow pretty much the same trail Eisenhower blazed earlier this week. New York and Massa- chusetts have become two of the key states that both parties are fighting to swing into their camps Nov. 4, New York has 45 electoral votes and Massachusetts 16 a total of 61 of the 266 needed for election. Breakfast With Mrs. FDR Stevenson's schedule called for him to breakfast with Mrs. Frank- lin, D. Roosevelt at Hyde Park then visit the Roosevelt memorial for a brief wreath-laying cere- mony. From New York State, he was to move into Massachusetts for stops at Pittsfield, Springfield, Worcester, Framingham, and fin- I ally Boston where he will deal, an aide said, with the Republican record on Communism. In a speech prepared for delivery at Poughkeepsie, Stevenson lauded Franklin D. Roosevelt as the man who restored "sense and sanity and responsibility" to American economic life. He said: "We shall never go back to the pre-Roosevelt period to the reign of the Republican Old Guard no matter how much the old enemies of Roosevelt inveigh against us, nor how successful these men are in recapturing the Republican don't think they will do any better this time than they have in any election since with a general to lead their legions."

Most delegates except Soviet bloc representatives hailed the speech with approval. Communist spokes- men remained silent. There were some indications, however, that Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky may seek to reply when the committee reconvenes Monday. Representatives of all nations- East, West and those which take a neutral stand went over the speech with a fine-toothed comb today to prepare their.official re- actions and to bolster their own arguments when they take the rost- rum in the committee.

Hoarse and Patigued The secretary ended, hoarse and fatigued, by calling attention to the sacrifices made by the United Na- tions and their troops fighting in Korea. "Let no act of ours weaken or destroy the noble purpose of their he declared. "This ses- sion of the General Assembly has the great responsibility of peace in Korea. We must not and cannot buy peace at the price of honor." Acheson then introduced the res- olution asking the assembly to en- dorse the stand of U.N.

Ei- Negro oente rs Aides said ft ere senhower is the man who can speed the spiritual and moral rebirth of this country and bring unity at home and to our wary allies, his running mate declared last night. Sen. Richard Nixon, Republican vice presidential candidate, said Eisenhower "can best preside over the liquidation of the Truman ad- ministration's bankruptcy and put America back on the rugged road to moral and economic solvency." Nixon's speech to persons at Beloit College topped a'one-day tour of Wisconsin. He made five whistle-stops and at each urged Gov. Adlai Stevenson digs into a bacon and eggs breakfast with Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt at her home at East Park, N. Y., this morning. The Democratic candidate took time out from his campaign to lay a wreath at the grave of the late president Roose- velt. (AP Wirephoto to The Kepublican-Herald) He told one trainside audience that Gov. Adlai Stevenson, Demo- cratic presidential nominee, is being led around "with a ring in his nose" by President Truman. In a news conference at Superior, Nixon accused Stevenson of mak- ing "deliberately misleading state- ments" in the governor's talk at Cleveland Thursday night. Nixon said he would answer them, prob- ably at Indianapolis tonight. "We have seen the terrible price bad judgment in presidential ap- pointments during seven years of Nixon told his Beloit audience.
