Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Fair, Warmer Tonight; Partly Cloudy Friday 'EISENHOWER' By John Gunther Starts Friday VOLUME 52, NO. 140 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY JULY 31, 1952 TWENTY PAGES Ike to Attend Gallup Indian Powwow Aug. 10 Will Witness Pageant by 37 American Tribes By MARVIN U. ARROWSMITH DENVER Wl Gen. Dwight D -Eisenhower, the Republican presi- dential nominee, attend the 30th annual inter-tribal Indian cer- emonial at Gallup, New Mexico, Aug. 10. The general will fly from Denver to Gallup the day of the ceremony and return here by plane that night. He will be met at Gallup Airport by Gov. E. L. Mechem of New Mexico, Gov. Howard Pyle of Ari- zona, and a delegation of officers of the Indian tribes taking part in the colorful affair. After lunch at the El Rancho Hotel, Eisenhower will go to the ceremonial stadium on the out- skirts of Gallup to watch the pa- geant put on 37 Indian tribes, mostly from the Southwest. To Make Speech The general then will make a brief speech greeting the tribes, the political bly will put in a plug for eleciion of Republican senators and House members this fall in the New Mex- ico and Arizona contests. The U. S. Senate seats at stake are held now by Democrats, Sen. Ernest W. McFarland of Arizona, the majority leader, and Sen. Den- nis Chavez of New Mexico. Chavez is opposed by Republican Patrick J. Hurley, former secre- tary of war ,and ambassador to China. Bidding for the GOP nomi- nation in Arizona are Barry Gold- water of Phoenix and Lester Kahl of Tucson. As the Republican standard bear- er, Eisenhower has said he wants as much emphasis put on captur- ing control of Congress from the Democrats as on his own cam- paign for the White House. He announced late yesterday however, that he will follow a po'l icy of strict neutrality in cases two or more Republicans in the various states are seeking nom- ination for the same office. The position he took means he will line up neither for or against Sen; Joseph R. McCarthy of Wis- consin, for example. McCarthy, whose Communists in-govern- ment charges have made him a highly controversial figure, faces GOP opposition in the forthcoming state primary. Eisenhower held a long confer- ence yesterday with Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge of Massachusetts, who managed the general's successful campaign for the presidential nom- ination. Schedule Today On Eisenhower's schedule today were conferences with Gov. Val Peterson of Nebraska, Paul G. Hoffman, chairman of an advisory group to the national Citizen for Ei- senhower Committee; and Jack Porter, GOP national committee- man from Texas. Sorry Folks, No Saucer WinonansWatch Weather Balloon Sorry, folks, that wasn't any flying saucer you saw this morning high in the sky above the west end of Winona. Just a weather balloon sent out by a Minneapolis firm. Winonans, becoming saucer- conscious following reports of numerous unidentified objects flying over Washington, D. C., and other eastern points re- cently, queried The Republi- can-Herald on fbe identity of the fluttering object. Explanation for the presence of the white circle in the sky was offered by a Wisconsin Central Airlines employe, who said it was a General Mills weather observation balloon sent out from Minneapolis. First report of the object was telephoned by Mrs. W. H. Karnath, 776 Terrace Lane, at 10 a.m., who said the John- stone Addition neighborhood had been watching the circle for half an hour. Through a telescope it appeared as though it were fluttering, "moving fast in a small cir- she said.

Five other Superforts hit other North Korean targets. The 63-plane armada which blasted the metals plant was the biggest Superior! raid of the war against a single objective.

Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic party's presidential candidate, be- lieves that "foolish promises" of substantial federal tax cuts' can be "very misleading." Stevenson told' a news confer- ence yesterday that everybody wants a reduction in taxes but it must be obtained at the earliest opportunity "consistent with our needs." He was asked by the -newsmen concerning Dwight D. Eisenhow- er's remarks recently about re- ducing federal taxes, and replied: "I would hope that neither can- didate or party would offer hopes that are forlorn and at the same time be demanding a defense es- tablishment to accomplish our common objective." Foreign Policy Tops Eisenhower, the Republican pres- idential nominee, had envisioned a 40 billion dollar yearly federal spending cut, but he did not speci- fy any date for the goal. Stevenson said he regarded for- eign policy as the "most import- ant consideration" of the coming political campaign. He added that he supposes his views and those of Eisenhower on this subject will turn out to be similar. He said he no longer is a re- luctant candidate for president and is "quite content with the Chicago Democratic convention and its re- sults." Asked if he could make "em-hell the governor replied "I don't believe I'm gifted with talents of that kind. But I'll ;ive it everything I can." He parried a question whether he'd keep Secretary of State Ache- son if he was elected president iy saying "I haven't the faintest dea about the Cabinet and I won't say anything until after the elec- ion."

MT-An -Ar- my officer from Camp McCoy, jwis., recently returned from com- l bat service in Korea, is being held in the Marquette County jail in the fatal shooting early this morn- ing of a former Michigan state policeman. The officer is Lt. Coleman A. i Peterson, 3S, a native of Chicago. Mike Chenoweth, operator of a tavern at Big lumber town 30 miles north of here, was the victim of the shooting. German Luger State police said Peterson, who returned to the states from Korea last March, shot Chenoweth with a German luger pistol at the tavern after his wife, Charlotte, 41. told him she had been assaulted and raped during the night by Cheno- weth.
