U.S. Election
Race Enters
Final Phase
Peace Key Issue
In National Fight
tle for control of the 82nd Con-.
gress goes into its critical week-
before-election phase tomorrow
with peace and national strength
emerging as key issues in a con-
fused, bitterly fought campaign.
That's the viewpoint of nation-
al party leaders swinging into the
final drive for a lion's share of
the Nov. 7 vote. They see the
country called upon to decide:
Does the record of President
Truman and a Democratic Con-
gress warrant a vote of confi-
Or would peace prospects be
brighter with Republicans at the
helm of congress during the last
two years of the President's
first full term?
Domestic and purely local issues
color the picture in many states.
There is, for example, the big la-
bor drive to unseat Republican
Senator Robert A. Taft in Ohio.
And in New York the much-pub-
licized "Hanley Letter" is one of
many issues without much to do
with national or world affairs.
But in other battleground states
-California, Pennsylvania, Con-
necticut and Illinois among oth-
ers-a dominant issue was the
"Fair Deal" and its performance
with regard to Communism, Korea
and the general security of the
* * *
CHAIRMEN OF both parties
came pretty close to agreement on
what the issues are.
"I believe that the voters are
very deeply concerned with mak-
ing sure that this country's posi-
tive efforts to obtain security and
world peace are not interrupted
and that our national prosperity
is maintained and advanced,"
Democratic National Chairman
William M. Boyle, Jr., asserted.
And the Republican National
Chairman, Guy George Gabriel-
son, put It this way:
"The principal issue of the cam-'
paign is the demonstrated incom-
petence of the Democrat Congress
and Administration to achieve
peace or maintain an adequate
national defense."
WHICH SIDE will win?
Normally the party out of pow-
er expects to gain strength in a
midterm election. Gabrielson and
GOP Congressional leaders said
they expected their party to cap-
ture at least five Democratic Seats
in the Senate and 25 or 30 in the
House. They saw "a good chance"
of winning control in both houses.
To do that, they need a net gain.
of seven Senate seats plus 49 seats
in the House.
All told, 36 Senators are to be
elected, along with the full mem-
bership-435-of the House and
32 State Governors.

if you're lucky enough not to be
right under the bomb and if you
follow these "six survival secrets:"
1-Try to get shielded. If you
have time, get down in a base-
ment or subway. If you're caught
outdoors, seek shelter alongside a
building-or hump in any handy
ditch or gutter.
2-Drop flat on the ground
or floor. To keep from being
tossed about or hit by flying
objects, flatten out at the base
of a wall or the bottom of a
3-Bury your face in your arms.
This will protect your face from
flash burns, prevent temporary'
blindness and keep flying objects
out of your eyes.
4-Don't rush outside right af-
ter a bombing.
5-Stick to canned and bot-
tied foods and beverages. Un-
protected food and water may
have radioactive poison.
6-Don't start rumors. In the
confusion that follows a bombing,
a single rumor might touch off a
panic that could cost your life.

Trouble seemed to be the com-
mon denominator of college stu-
dents and on college campuses last
Most of the difficulties weren't
world-shaking, but they were at
least thorny. At Texas, the Ku
Klux Klan, or someone acting in
its name, was making trouble; at
George Washington University, the
marching band was in trouble; at
Harvard the football team was
having its troubles-to put it mild-

THE TEXAS incident was an old
fashioned southern cross burning.
A six-foot cross, made of four by
fours and wrapped in kerosene-
doused rags was lit near the Uni-

finally arrived.
After the fire nearly a dozen

that to keep the band march-

Early this week the Harvard ath-
