Lost Plane
Sighted, All
Feared Dead
The burned, broken wreckage of
a Pan American luxury strato-
cruiser that vanished Tuesday was
found in Northern Brazil yester-.
day with no evidence that any
of the 50 persons aboard, includ-
ing 19 Americans, lived through
the crash.
A vast air hunt over 320,000
square miles of jungles, river bas-
ins and plateau land finally lo-
cated the ruins of the 1 million
dollar double-decked liner in the
Indian country between the towns
of Barreiras and Carolina - on
course to the end.
Air line officials said the find
was made by a C-46 Pan American
cargo clipper, piloted by Capt. Jim
Kowing of Miami, 287 miles south-
west of Carolina, a Tocantins river
town itself 1,100 miles north-
northwest of Rio de Janeiro.

Local Workers
Strike in Wage
Nearly 200 members of the Ann
Arbor Plumbers and Steamfitters
Union 190 went out on strike yes-
terday in a wage dispute center-
ing around a 25 cent raise de-
manded by the workers.
The strike involves two other
Michigan cities and affects ap-
proximately 1,300 workers. Work
stoppage was reported in Flint and
Grand Rapids when men failed to
show up for work.

SEVERAL construction projects
in Ann Arbor, whose contractors
are not members of the Ann Arbor
Association of Master Plumbers,
were also affected by the walkout.
According to an official of the
association the union is demand-
ing a 25-cent wage boost, from
$2.75 to $3 per hour, permissi-
ble under a Wage Stabilization
Board ruling.
The association made a counter-
offer Wednesday proposing a 15-
cent an hour raise, provided the
d union hire a full-time business

agent. However this was turned
down by the union.
At Flint, 850 men are demand-
ing a 15 cent raise. Their strike
affects production at half a dozen,
defense plants under construction.
The strikers at Grand Rapids are
also demanding a 15-cent pay hike
and have been offered a ten cent

Truman Again
Refuses To Run
For Reelection
Truman said emphatically yes-
terday he would not run if nomi-
nated for another term.
When asked at a news confer-
ence whether he would go a step
further and say he would not
serve if elected-a statement at-
tributed to Gen. William T. Sher-
man in 1884 but disputed by some
historians-the President asked
how he could be elected if he re-
fused the nomination.

TRUMAN had some good words
to say for Senator McMahon (D.-
Conn.), latest to announce for the
Democratic Presidential nomina-
tion, and again for Gov. Adlai E.
Stevenson of Illinois, who has said
he "could not accept" a Presiden-
tial candidacy this summer.
On the hot steel controversy, he
said all he wants to do is get steel
produced, that he's going to take
every action possible to that end.
He said he has no ambition to
become a dictator and of course
he will abide by the Supreme
Court's decision in the matter.
Yesterday's interview dealt in
large part with the steel situation
despite an opening admonition
from the President that he would
not discuss it. But politics came
up first and a newsman asked his
opinion of Senator McMahon's
New York announcement yester-;
day that he's now a full fledged
candidate for the Democratic
Presidential nomination, making
five avowed candidates in all.

son House lawn. The front door
was decked with signs reading:
"When Spring Comes .. .
We come too.
May, Peace, Rain?"
According to Nelson House-
father Al Raygor, "It all started
when I found a sailboat in the
living room last week." Raygor,
who had just returned from smelt
fishing that day also found smelt
nets, pails, and cans of salmon
and tuna fish.

INSPIRED by a Cheever House
serenade the Nelson men soon de-
posited the boat on the Cheever
House front porch as a thank you
gift. Accompanying the craft was
the paraphernalia plus a mock
fraternity pin created from a large
lid and inscribed with NIH.
The battle then began. As the
women #moved the boat to the
second floor the men planted signs
in front of the house reading, "live
bait--worms." In retaliation the
boat-ridden Cheeverites inserted
a classified ad in The Daily offer-
ing sailboatk, worms and live bait
for sale.
The deadlocked forces came to
a head the following day in a
raid on Cheever resulting in the
capture of two prisoners by the
Amazons. After two hours of
captivity the prisoners were re-
leased for dinner at home where
they awarded green hearts for
their bravery in action."
After the final return of the
boat the two camps did little but
enjoy the calm of the ensuing lull.
But yesterday morning in an at-
tempt to climatically culminate
the series of events Cheever women
deposited the colorful, impromptu
maypole on the Nelson House
doorstep, a white flag flying from
its summit.

Ike Leading
In Race for
ST. LOUIS -()- Gen. Dwight
D. Eisenhower pushed ahead of
Sen. Robert A. Taft yesterday in
delegate strength at the Republi-
can Presidential nominating con-
vention next July.
Republicans from St. Louis and
St. Louis county put Eisenhower
in the lead by instructing six dele-
gates to vote for him in Chicago.
Then at the sixth district Re-
publican convention in Sedalia
two more outspoken Eisenhower
supporters were elected delegates.

ON THE BASIS of an Associat-
ed Press tabulation, this gave the
five-star general 278 pledged or
favorable delegates, against 274
for Taft.
The Ohio Senator, however,
claims the support of more than
300 delegates.
Eisenhower picked up two votes
in each of Missouri's 11th, 12t
and 13th Congressional districts
in the Metropolitan St. Louis area.
, Presidential nomination rg-
quires 604 votes. A total of 722
delegates have been picked and
of that number 172 are either
favorable to other candidates,
undecided, uncommitted or have
not revealed their preference.
Missouri will name 26 delegates
in all in district meets that will
continue until May 15. Conven-
tions in the second district at
Boonville and the third at Mayville
are set for next Tuesday.
Jackson county's (Kansas City)
