High wpot of tho day was Taft's Lincoln clay addrcKK boforo a crowd of 1 BOO who racolved him imlhusKi.ntlcally. With Taft at tlio speaker's tablo, and given a rousing mtul when introduced, was Minne- sota's senator for 24 years, Hcnrlk Shlpstead, who was defeated by Senator Edward J. Thye. In brief remarks at" the dinner, Governor Luther W.YounRdahl paid tribute to Mrs. Tuft by eaylng: "Senator, If this Job of campalgn- ng gets too messy, we'd like you to con.ilclor loaning us your wife in >uttlng our candidate Her Part Mrs. Tuft bluntly and brightly carried out her snare of tho show. She was guest speaker at a lunch- oon sponsored by tho St. Paul Klwarils club. On both sides of her il tho long speaker's table were of tho former Minnesota governor, Including Mrs. Stasscn ind Governor and Mrs. Youngdahl. "I come horo quite frankly cam- paigning for my husband, as you she told tho packed ball- room. "Ho Is In tho United States Scn- inlc.

Tor Instance, she' suggested that tho bill should be saved as n souvenir, Torch' "It has a picture on It the .south view of the White House, without a she explained, referring to President Truman's move to construct a summer porch'. Mrs. Taft's bright eyes sparkled as she told her husband's convic- tions.

He was applauded enthusiastically before and after his address. In opening hid spooch, Senator Taft recounted that he had advised Stasscn, vainly, not to enter the Ohio presidential primary, telling him that would be a mistake.

By The Associated Political brickbats showered on President Truman from a full bat- tery of Republican campaign speak- ers today. On the side, two candidates for the G.O.P. presidential nomina- tion differed publicly over how gen- erous this country should be In helping Europe. The added attraction featured Governor Thomas E. Dowey of New York and Senator Robert A. Tart of Ohio, Split in Discussion Both gave the. Truman foreign policy a severe raking, but they split in their discussion of, the Marshall plan. Dewoy told a Boston Lincoln day audience the foreign policy "should tau thrown stock mid barrel." Taft, ,ipni.klng al, St. Pniil, bin mod It for "this losing if the peace thus 1'ar." However, Dcwcy sold it would be better to give the administration all It has asked for spending under the Marshall plan than to "limit It with an amount which might fall to do the job." Stas.son, Warren Speak Former Governor Harold E, Stns- scn of Minnesota, who also is run- ning for the Republican nomina- tion, said in Germantown, Pa., he thinks the Marshall plan should be carrlftl out as finally developed under the leadership of Senator Arthur Vandonberg Vandenberg is- chairman of the Senate foreign relations commit- tee. The adminisLratloii wants to set the Marshall plan under way and finance it lor the first 15 months. California's Governor Earl War- ren, who also asplrcH lo the White House, told his Republican listen- oni at, Los Angeles that If the G.O.P. wants to follow Lincoln it should be the party of the poor and rich alike. Some poured oil on tho Demo- cratic party fire in their Lincoln day speeches: Iluntlnirlon. W. Vn. Senator Kenneth S.

Grain prices were irregular. But they gave indications or at- tempting to climb in contrast to the downward slides of the past President Still Thinks Price s Controls Needed Tru- man still thh.V, thfc country needs 'h price'controls in spite of the severe break in the grain market. The w'ord from Republican lead- ers In Congress today is that ho still week. The price of wholesale butter slammed down five to six and one- half cents n. pound on the New York Mercantile exchange. The drop WON immediately reflected In some re- tail prices. The National Association of Kail Grocers said a key city survey showed reductions In flour, bacon ham, lard, vegetable shortening and In some, cases has ,lu chanco of gutting them. Joseph Martin (R.-Mass.) told radio audience the election o' a G.O.P. president and Congress Is the only way to (1) "overcome In- flation by increased production and lower (2) cut taxes; (3) "make -sure our heavy expenditures In foreign aid will succeed." On the same program Senator Homer Ferguson (R.-M.lch.) said the Democrats are relying on a cry "that there is a crisis, so you must not change horses injnldstream." ImllanapnllN G.O.P. National Chairman Carroll Recce said Mr. Truman's legislative requests to Congress prove that "the Pcndcr- gast wing of the Democratic par- ly" Is "seeking reunion with the Moscow wliiK" after splitting with Henry A. Wallace. Many other Republicans look the opportunity to deliver Lincoln day addresses. in Milwaukee, Representative Frank B. Kcefe called Russia an American-made Frankenstein "that now threatens to engulf the whole world." The Republican from Oshkosh ad- dressed tho Wisconsin chapter of the American Foundrymen's association. "We destroyed the dictatorships of Hitler, Mussolini and Hlrohlto, ibut In the process we appeased the Luce in 1942. She is the only worn- dictator of them all- an electrical engineering Chairman Jesso P. Wolcott (I JMich.) of the House banking com- mittee went even further. He said Congress may have to start thinking about ways to keep prices from go- ing too far down. Wolcott took the view that there will be no harm if Congress waits a couple of weeks to think over the antlinflation picture before Jt acts. He listed one exception: Bent control. That should bo extended for ono month beyond February 29, the date the present law expires, Wol- coU told newsmen. Meanwhile, he added. Congress could consider n longer extension. Wolcott said a two-weeks' ban on discussion of other proposals would "let us see where the economy Is headed." "We cannot legislate on economic questions until we know what is happening." he continued. "If this (price decline) goes too far we may hiivu to give our thought to sup- porting markets." But Mr. Truman responded with a positive yes -when a reporter at his news conference late Thursday asked him whether the major eco- nomic problem facing the country Is sill! Inflation, and not deflation. Furthermore, the chief executive said flatly that the market break has not lessened the need for the .economic program he outlined to Congress November 17.

S. marines captured by the reds in north China died of wounds. It charged the United States with active participation In China's civil war. The broadcast confirmed rumors that one of the marines, Private First Class Charles J. Bray ton, Jr., Fort Jay, Governors Island, N. Y., was wounded fatally. The broadcast said tho five ma- rines had "advanced against a posl- :lon" of the communists near a village north of Tslnetao Christmas day. It said the U. S. navy had jecn asked to "apologize." On previous occasions, U. S. mili- tary personnel taken InLo custody In communist territory were releas- ed unharmed after a few days. Tills time, said the broadcast, the four surviving marines would be treated with "clemency" on condition the U. S. guarantees "no recurrence." The communist broadcast, from a secret station In north China, was recorded here by The Associated Press. Thu captured American marines included Corporal William L.

They arc genuine re- ductions, made possible by the flex- ibility of grocers to adjust to market conditions quickly, he said. Grains showed widely divergent tendencies. Corn swung down as much as the full limit at the start, but wheat and oat deliveries were steady to slightly higher. Corn prices subsequently came back from the lows. Cotton fell almost a bale at New York. Shortly after the open- Ing, however, mills began buying and there was a rebound that brought the prices about above the lows at the start. At New Orleans, cotton was to a bale lower. Stocks Irregular Stocks were irregular and tlvlty was moderate. Price changes were small.

Shutoff Clause Repeal Asked Washington Two Midwest senators today proposed repeal of a law which shuts off wheat exports when reserve supplies In this country fall to bushels. Senator Milton B. Young (R.-N, D.) -said he thinks this provision in a foreign aid bill passed Jost De- cember Is one of the reasons for the sharp break in grain prices. He said it forces foreign buyers to look for wheat in other exporting countries when U. S. supplies to the fixed level. That, he declared, tends to shut American producers out of the world market and depress prices in this country. Investigation Asked Young said Congress should Inves- tigate the motives of officials of all four major commodity exchanges who supported the reserve require- ment before It was adopted. The automatic ban on exports, he said, (1) helps speculators who gamble on a drop In the cost of wheat and (2) penalizes U. S. farmers.
