At the same time McCarthy, one of the prime targets of Democrats in the national election campaign told his need your votes next Tuesday. I need them badly." Time for carrying his speech over 31 Wisconsin radio stations had elaspscd before McCarthy struck at Stevenson for what he called the Illinois governor's "all out" support of Alger Hiss, con- victed of perjury for denying he had passed State Department se- crets to Whittaker Chambers.

Lewis was reported today striving for a quick hard coal agreement so he can concentrate on negotia- tions with the bigger and more far-flung soft coal industry. Lewis has never publicly served demands on either the anthracite iven hard coal or bituminous soft coal mine owners. But he is re- the AmericVn if "they want I portedly aiming for a sizable yoa they can have you. I don't boost in the hard coal welfare fund and more wages and snare-the- think they do."

"It is an important fight to the finish. Let me assure you I need your votes next Tues- day. I need them badly." McCarthy declared that the Wis- consin campaign was one of mud slinging and smear. He said his opponents had "dredged all the sewage from the Communist gut- ters of the nation and are spread- ing it hip deep on the Wisconsin countryside." 'Make Me an Example' men "some progress" was being made. The talks, held previously in New York and Wilkes-Barre, Pa., moved here yesterday. The prog- ress statement was made after a one hour session during which Lew- is, Kennedy and Edward G.

Lyle Democrats Push Wedge Between IkeandTaft Seek to Capitalize On Defection Of Col. McCormick By JACK BELL SPRINGFIELD, 111. Ad- lai E. Stevenson's supporters tried today to drive a wedge between Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and j Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio in the I Republican ranks. I They cited the defection of Col. I Robert R. McCormick, editor and I publisher of the Chicago Tribune, as an asset in their effort to cap- ture the vital Midwest in the pres- idcntial race, McCormick has advised Repub- licans to ignore both presidential nominees and concentrate on elect- ing selected GOP members of Con- gress in preparation for a third party presidential effort in 1956. A Stevenson aide told this re- porter he regards this as a "major break" for the Democratic nomi- j nee in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa, where the Tribune cir- culates widely. These four states form the heartland of a Midwest- ern area where President Truman won his unexpected victory in 1948. The Stevenson aide said he be- lieves McCormick's views will af- fect many Republicans who sup- ported Taft for the nomination, and still are angry that Eisenhower won in Chicago on the issue that Taft's backers had "stolen" dele- gates in Southern states.

Doolittle, World War II flying hero: The commission was set up shortly aft- er three air disasters occurred in rapid-fire succession at Elizabeth, N. J. Embodied in the recommenda- tions were these key provisions: 1. Airports should be given a major role in community plan- ning and airfields should be inte- grated with other modes of trans- portation. 2. Airfields should be moved closer to the cities they serve. The Doolittle commission said they i should be no further than 40 min- utes driving time from the heart of a city. 3. No new airport should be planned without clear, level areas at least feet wide and at least half a mile long beyond each end of the main runways. 4. Zoning laws should be set up protecting approaches to airports against construction of buildings for at least two miles in fan-shaped areas at least feet wide at the outer ends. 5.

(.fl An 11-year-old boy was accused today of setting two neighbor children afire in the attic of their home. Trapped and screaming, they burned to death. The victims were Lindsey Cun- ningham, 8, and his sister Mary Louise, 12, Negroes. Another sister, Esther, 11, was critically burned trying to save them. She was in San Antonio Hos- pital today. A fourth member of the family, a frail, physically handicapped old- er sister, Ruth, 22, said she wres- tled with the young assailant but he mounted a chair out of her state suggesting that they join a "Century Club" of S100 contribu- tors to the Democratic war chest, Stevenson said in a letter to Beardsley Ruml, chairman of the Democratic Finance Committee: "I like the idea of a drive for contributions that will be without promise and without threats, and, of course, make it successful." reach and threw kerosene on the Ruml said that while the letter two children.

Mrs Maude Wharton, a neigh- bor, tried to cut through ventilators in the attic with an axe when she heard the children screaming, implied that, threats had been made in the past, he believed "they have been made in every party through an excess of zeal."

I A member of the committee, Dr. Kessler has written numerous books and articles on the theme that physically handicapped per- sons can lead useful, normal lives if given the proper training. Truman awarded Nils S. Josef- son of Franklin Park, 111., the President's Trophy for the "out- standing performance or the year" by a handicapped person. Josefson, 31. president of the Paraplegics Manufacturing Co., was crippled for life while serving on a carrier in the Pacific. With other wheelchair "graduates" of the Hines Veterans Hospital, he formed his company in February, 1951, to make small electronic parts. Truman said: "The going was tough. Orders were few. But the men persevered and today this en- terprise is a real success."
