For Quick Service Call: Day, 5-2164 Night, 5-9574 or 6-0218 Ike (Continued from Page One) the Eisenhower farm just outside of town, the grass still was wet from overnight showers. That didn't stop the President from turning out this morning for half an hour chipping and putting on the neatly carpeted golf green behind the house. Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told newsmen he would give them 8 doctors' report on the chief executive toward the end of the week. As for his own appraisal of how Eisenhower is looking after five days of convalescence at his home, Hagerty said: "I think he is looking better each day, and as I said earlier in the week, I think each day he gets stronger in his convalescence from the operation." The President still isn't going in for any strenuous exertion.

So far, he has limited himself to strolls or rides around the farm, a bit of practice golf, and work sessions of no more than an hour with members of the White House staff. Hagerty said he has been going to bed around 10 every night, as well as getting in afternoon naps. Hagerty offered his usual noncommital answers to all questions designed to smoke him out on whether his boss still intends to try for a second term. It was shortly before noon that a Secret Service agent drove up to the presidential farm with 8- year-old David Eisenhower and 7- year-old Barbara Ann. They came up from Ft.

Belvoir, near Washington, where their father, Maj. John Elsenhower, 18 stationed. John and his wife, Barbara, and the two other presidential grandchildren, Susan, 5, and the 7-month-old baby, Mary Jean, are planning to come up for the weekend. Democrats (Continued from Page One) more in second choice support than either of his leading competitors. Recent convention actions and olls indicate Stevenson would get many Kefauver votes in Minnesota, Montana, and possibly Indiana if the Tennessean pulls out Harriman also could pick up some Kefauver strength in Indiana, Kefauver says he will not accept anything but the presidential nomination and he seeks no deals with any other candidates.

Where the favorite son votes would go on succeeding ballots is anybody's guess. But Stevenson forces are eying hopefully the 5 Texas votes pledged to Sen. Lyndon Johnson, 1952 Stevenson supporter, after they plump for Johnson at the start. There also have been signs Stevenson might get Sen. Stuart Symangton's big Missouri delegation if the senator's darkhorse boom fades.

Gov. Frank Lausche, Ohio's favorite, and Gov. G. Mennen Willjams, Michigan's hoeful, have not intimated where they might thrw their vtes in later ballting. Stevensn supporters count heavily on additional delegate strength now uncommitted in Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts.

New. Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The Harriman forces expect to pick up Oklahoma's uncommitted bloc under the unit rule, and more Western votes before the convention openling Montmorency Sour Cherries We have a nice crop this year and expect to start harvesting about July 9th.

"And a spokesman of the U. S. State Department even dared to express sympathy for the victims at Poznan and to express readiness to extend help." Rumors continued to circulate in Berlin and Vienna of munist partisans battling with Polish troops outside of Poznan. But an American observer in Warsaw, who 1s in close touch with developments said in a telephone interview: "I've heard nothing about partisan fighting any. where in Poland." Reached by telephone from Berlin, Lech Jestka, editor of the Communist newspaper a ze a Poznanska in Poznan, dented rumors brought here by Western travelers that some rebels already had been executed.

"There have not been any sentences or executions yet' in the trials of workers, Jestka said. Secret police courts yesterday began trying scores of workers described as "secondary" violators among the rebels. The big political treason trials apparently are to come after the special commission makes its report and instructs the courts. "There can be no from the decisions of the commission," Warsaw radio said. The broadcast added that the commission is empowered to "deal with each individual case." The group is headed by Edward Gierek, a secretary of the Communist party's Central Committee.

Jestka said that hundreds of workers already have been released from prison, but that 150 still are held. "No punitive action has been taken against any Communist party Jestka said. He added: "That, of course, can still come." Warsaw radio earlier denounced government and party officials "lack in Poznan charging them with of vigilance" in heading off the uprising, "cowardice" when it finally broke, and failure to meet the "legitimate" demands of the workers for better living conditions. The whole tenor of Polish propaganda announcements showed clearly that hunt was on for scapegoats who would take blame for the revolt. Western businessmen returning from Poznan this morning reported the city outwardly quiet but the people tense and fearful of Communist retaliation Polish frontier guards are confiscating films taken by foreigners of the Poznan rioting.

Many newspapermen in Berlin applied for visas to visit nave Poland. But since the outbreak of the Poznan revolt Last Thursday, the Polish military mission has tailed to grant a single application, HOLT'S CHINA GIFT STORE IS HAVING A SPECIAL "HOT WEATHER" SALE So easy to serve BIG VALUE!

Tuesday to midnight Wednesday, local time. The last hours when families are hurrying home on jammed nighways from beaches, parks and countryside, are normally the most dangerous. Ned H. Dearborn, president of the National Safety Council, said: "Unless the drivers realy clamp down on recklessness in these closing hours of the holiday there is good chance the toll may equal or exceed our estimate of 130 deaths, made before the holiday, was coupled with a hope that stiff traffic enforcement and driver caution could hold down the death toll to 80 which it said the normal total for a Wednesday in early July.

Must Correct Situation The underpass of the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad has been a problem of long-standing concern and engineers pointed out that the proposed improvements are necessary to meet the needs of traffic on Routes 11 and 250 in the city. Even if a bypass is built to take US. 250 and 11 traffic around the city, they said. traffic is increasing so fast, that within a few years after its completion "there would be just as many vehicles using the underpass as there are now." Plans now being prepared will provide a new three-lane northbound structure east of the twolone arch built in 1852, reocate the connection of US 250 with US 11, and provide a shert sec tion of dual lane on US 11. To Study Bypass Underpass (Continued from Page One) Engineers also said preliminary studies are being made to investigate the possibilities for a bypass of the city.

Topographic mapping of the Staunton area in under way and after it is completed, line proJections in conjunction with field studies will be started. Considerable study will be required to select the most feasible location for the interstate system of roads in the Staunton area, they stated. SKIN ITCH HOW TO RELIEVE IT. IN JUST 15 MINUTES.
