By Edward T. Folliard Staff Reporter

CHICAGO, Aug. 14—Adlai Stevenson made some head way today in his drive for the Democratic Presidential nomi- nation, but his bandwagon again bumped into Harry S. Truman.'

The former President, who is backing Gov. Averell Harriman of New York for the nomina- tion, said that Stevenson would be an “also ran” in November if he is chosen here by the Democratic National Conven- tion.

“I don't believe Stevenson can win and I think Averell Harriman can,” Mr. Truman told reporters. “I am doing my best to keep him (Steven- son) from being nominated.

Mr. Truman, who made his harsh statement to newsmen in his suite at the Blackstone, added that if Stevenson does win the nomination “I will sup- port him.”

MONTICELLO, Utah, Aug. i—An explosion that killed 15 persons and injured more than 30 others in a crowded] cafe late yesterday was catsed| by an accumulation of natural gas, investigators said today.

Nine persons were) critically injured. | The Utah Gas Service Co.,| and the State Public Service’ Commission said after a pre-| liminary investigation that the gas had accumulated in the basement of the. building. A new gas line had been installed last Sunday. | | Several teams of natural gas experts were making the inves-| jtigation. Studies were being) ‘conducted by Otto Wiesley,| chairman of the Utah Indus- trial Commission, W. A. Robin-) son, chief engineer for the State Public Service Commis- sion, and five officials of the Utah Gas Service Co. Gov. J. Bracken Lee ordered the inves- tigation by Wiesley and Robin- son.

RALEIGH HABERDASHER

County Man In Slaying

Silver Hill, Md., restaurant proprietor Francis A. Fischer was freed on $8000 bond yes- terday despite a warning that he “might not live long enough to stand trial” in the slaying: of his former business partner.

Prince Georges County Circuit Court Judge John Raymond Fletcher ordered Fischer's release at a habeas corpus hearing in Upper Marl. boro,

He is accused of fatally wounding Wilfred A. Grove, 44, after an argument on Aug.) 8 at the Silver Hill restaurant they jointly operated.

The warning that friends of the slain man may seek ven- ‘geance against Fischer was voiced by State’s Attorney Blair H, Smith, who opposed his re- lease from jail.

Smith said he received re- ports of “excitement and bad iblood between friends of the \deceased and the defendant.”

The prosecutor conceded that “this situation may have cooled ‘off a little.” He expressed fear, ‘however, that Fischer's release “might endanger not only the defendant's life but others in case he were forced to protect ihimself.”

Terming Fischer a “good bond risk,” Smith said he was confident the accused man would appear when summoned before a grand jury “if he is still alive at that time.”

Fischer has interests in the Half Shell Restaurant, 3210 Branch ave., Silver Hill, where the fatal shooting occurred; the Sea Shell Restaurant, 4918 Liv- ingston rd., Glass Manor, and Danny's Steak House, Good Hope rd. and Alabama ave. se.
