Carlson (R-Kas) predicted today Republicans will seek a 1956 tax cut for the "little man" in part answer to Democratic charges that the Kisenhower administration is favoring big business. Led by former President Truman, Democrats have been trying to hang a "big business" label on the GOP. But Carlson said in an interview he doesn't believe the public is going to "swallow" any such charge. As a member of the tax-handling Senate Finance Committee, Carlson said he will support an extension of present business and corporation taxes, "We are going to have a tax reduction for individuals, for the little man, next year," he said. "I believe the way the country is moving forward, we will balance the budget and when that balance is in sight we can move to reduce taxes." Carlson said he thinks President Eisenhower's newest economy campaign, aimed at cutting spending by all departments, will be popular with the. people. "The country wants additional cuts in these expentitures which will help make tax reduction pos-i-'ible," he sain. Truman chided the Republicans in a Mackinac Island, Mich., speech last night, saying "we are now in the third year of the dispensation of big business and we have no balanced budget yet." Truman's charge that the Eisenhower administration is "big business dominated" drew from Carlson the retort that "Truman's philosophy is that of the Americans for Democratic Action, a socialistic program if I ever saw one, and I don't think the country wants it."-ADA calls Hself an anticom-muriist non-partisan organization espousing liberal causes. The grading was coniplcMed ri>-cenlly by John McA.'� 'by - s tg-gesting President Kisenhower, now (54,-would be too old next year to siwk rt-cJii-cli.'Jn.. . .,%�-�' Truman's part in next year's camiiaign.- judged by what has just happened when he couldn't make speeches scheduled almost two weeks apart - will be very limited. He has already said flatly he would not be. a candidate in the pi-esidentiah race. So in  1956, Truman won't  be matching- the more than 3,50 |.HP�eches. he.ilelivered .in 19-18 . to win the presidency - a victory which was a shock to Republicans and a .surprise to many of his own Democrats. Truman's return, to the political wars Saturday with his speech in Indiana was not particularly impressive, 11 was mild compared with what he used to say in the past. True, he denounced the Republicans and took some cracks at Kisenhower. But he spoke in generalities and didn't back up his charges with chapter and verse, (<'ontinued on Page 5, No. 1) Siiys Japan K<'aosedly a dud souvenir, detonated in an apartment house yard, kiUing three children.,,U apparently,had boeri picked up near Ft.
