However a comparison of today's survey findings with those re- ported bv United States Poll on July 16 shows there has been a possible significant shift of sentiment among Independent voters follow- ing the initial speechmaking of the major candidates. The number of Independents inclined toward sup- port of the Republican Party has declined three percentage points, i since July 16, whereas the number leaning toward the Democrtic j Party has jumped 10 percentage i points. The number who say they do not lean toward either party dropped seven points. Each Independent voter in to- day's nation-wide survey was first asked: "As of today, do you lean i more to the Democratic Party or the Republican LEAN TOWARD GOP OR DEMOCRATIC PARTY?

Responses to the second question asked in today's survey show Inde- pendents throughout the nation as of today also prefer GOP candi- dates for Congress over Democrat- ic Party candidates by a five to four margin.

An Army spokesman said Naguib would resign as soon as normal parliamentary rule is restored aft- er forthcoming elections are held, not later than February. Naguib kept his post as com- mander in chief of Egypt's armed forces but picked a Cabinet of ci- vilians, indicating he probably will not depend entirely on soldiers' bayonets to push through his pro- gram. Three of his new ministers are seasoned technicians who were in the outgoing government. Promi- nent among them was Abdel Guelil el Emary, an able economist, who will remain as finance minister. In political circles this was looked on as a sign Naguib will continue along the main lines of his prede- cessor's financial policy.

Jet Crash Death Toll Rises to 28 LONDON The death toll in the explosion of Britain's De Havilland 110 jet fighter at the Farnborough air show Saturday rose to 2S today as 14-year- bers of the anti-British Nationalist! party and a member of the militant Moslem Brotherhood. The two fac- tions were the only ones not in- volved in yesterday's arrests. It was too soon to forecast how their influence might affect he new Cabinet's relations with the West.

They will be used at University hospitals in that city. By RELMAN MORIN PORTLAND, Ore. Gov. Adlai Stevenson said today tho battle for the presidency is going to be a hard one, but he claimed, "We are gaining steadily." The Democratic candidate spoke before a group of Oregon news- paper editors, publishers and radio men at a luncheon in Portland to- day. He arrived here by plane last night, extending his hard-driving campaign to the Pacific Coast. "It is eoing to be a tough cam- Stevenson said, "and I am not kidding myself about the diffi- culties. "We have a lot of ground to make up. We have made up some. I figure that we still have a little distance to go. But I figure, too, that we are gaining steadily." It was the first time Stevenson has publicly discussed the progress of the campaign. In saying, it is going to be he also paid a tribute to the Republican candi- date, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, saying: "My opponent is a great general who has served the Army and the nation well." Taunts Republicans But Stevenson again taunted the Republicans on the ground that they are split into two parties, sharply divided over policy, and have no policies of their own. He has hammered away at this point in a number of speeches made since he left Springfield, 111., his headquarters, last Friday. "I wait breathlessly for each morning's he told the editors, "to see which Republican party is on top that day. "I do not think the people will install a party which does not seem capable of governing. And I do not see how anyone can argue that this fretful, distracted and divided Republican party has that capacity. If it cannot govern itself, why should we suppose it could govern the The luncheon was sponsored by the Oregon Journal. Much of Stevenson's address to the editors today was devoted to newspaper coverage of the cam- paign to date. He had both good and critical remarks, asserting: "I have been well impressed by the fair treatment accorded me by most newspapersn including most of those aligned editorially with the opposition. I am convinced that nearly all publishers are doing their honest best, according to their if I must confess that sometimes their lights seem to me a little dim." Nation Relies He said the nation relies on a free and responsible press to battle the "three greatest enemies of democracy ignorance, apathy, and excessive partisanship." And he reminded his audience: "Our brand of representative gov- (Continued on Page 13, Column 6) STEVENSON 425 Saved As Ship Sinks Off Alaska JUNEAU, Alaska relent- less waters of a Southeastern Alas- ka "ship graveyard" claimed an- other Canadian Pacific Lines ves- sel Sunday its flagship, the Princess not one of the 425 aboard was lost. A mile and a half off course, the Kathleen crunched aground with her bow almost un- derneath a cliff at a.m. Earth- quake conscious Californians aboard said the blow felt like such Rescue Efforts Within four hours, with Coast Guard-aided rescue efforts, the 307 passengers aboard were gotten ashore, many of the younger ones climbing down ladders to the beach. Near mid-day, when the rising tide began to fill the hull, Capt. Graham 0. Hughes ordered "Abandon and the 118 offi- cers and crew were also put I ashore. The ship slipped from its rocky berth and sank, with its bow going i high into the air, in 90 feet of water at p.m. The spot was 18 miles north of here. The Kathleen had sailed from Juneau for Skag- way. First Officer Charles W. Savage was on the bridge when the ship hit, Capt. Hughes reported. The lookout sighted the reef and cliff looming up in the darkness and light rain but there was no time to change course. The first officer was unable to explain the ship's position, Hughes said. He was near collapse after the ship was abandoned. The ship's plight was not be- lieved serious at first and the pas- sengers were served coffee. Winds kicked up six-foot waves and a drenching rain fell. On arrival of the Coast Guard cutter, lifeboats brought passen- gers ashore, fires were built on the beach and a path was cut through brush and rocks half a mile to a road. About 160 of the younger passen- gers, many of them on a tour spon- sored by the Catholic Young Men's Institute of San Francisco, climbed down ladders to the shore and hiked to the road. The Coast Guard boat took 110 of the older passengers to Tee Har- I bor and returned and took between 130 and 40 to Auke Bay, both points 1 with easy access to the road to Juneau. One of the survivors suf- fered a heart attack in the lobby of the Baranof Hotel, presumably from over-exertion. After the crew got ashore, they huddled near fires and as the Kath- leen finally filled with water and took its last plunge, they bared their heads and wept. Robert M. Gilmore of San Fran- cisco, an assistant to the vice pres- ident of the Southern Pacific Rail- way, said rescue operations were carried on "beautifully and smoothly." Three other Canadian Pacific Lines ships have been lost in the immediate area and a fourth was salvaged. One of the North Pa- I cific's worst marine disasters took the lives of 343 persons, every one aboard, when the Princess Sophia j sank on Oct. 18, 1918, only eight miles away. Bow Of Ton S.S. Princess Kathleen, with damaged prow, is shown just before it sank after sliding off rocks of Lena Point, Alaska, where it ran aground Sunday. All of the crew and passen- gers were saved.
