Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Fair, Cooler Tonight, Warmer On Wednesday Plan Now to Vote in Sept. 9 Primary VOLUME 52, 167 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES TODAY McCarthy Issue Hurts Republicans By JOSEPH ALSOP NEW profound na- tional issue that goes by the name of Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy has now come close to producing an open break in the ranks of the Re- publican party. Because of the Mc- Carthy issue, the Wisconsin Repub- lican organization has bluntly ask- ed Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to cancel a planned and much desir- ed speaking date at Milwaukee Sept. 5. And the general has ac- ceded to this astonishing request. The immediate background is simple enough. In brief, three com- promise measures have been offer- ed to the Wisconsin Republican leader, Tom Coleman, who was Sen. Robert A. Taft's Midwestern manager. These three measures, now rejected, were as follows: First, Coleman's man, the Wis- consin state chairman, Wayne Hood, was named executive direc tor of the Republican National Committee when the committee was reorganized under Eisenhow- er's leadership. This was intended to assure the Wisconsin Republican organization that it would be fully recognized at all times by Gen Eisenhower. Personal Position Second, Gen. Eisenhower took his position on McCarthy personally. Gen. George C. Marshall, whom McCarthy has accused of treason to the United States, stands almost in a father's relationship to Gen. Eisenhower. Gen. Eisenhower could not ignore these facts in honor and it would have been politically idio- tic to try. Hence, the general de- nounced the McCarthy attack on Marshall, and came out strongly against the character assassina tion and witch-hunting which are now, understandably, summed up under the heading of "McCarthy- ism." But having done these things, Gen. Eisenhower also said that he would support McCarthy if the latter was duly renpminated for the senate by the Wisconsin Repub- licans. Third, to avoid any further en- dorsement of McCarthy, Gen, Ei- senhower planned to do his speak- ing in Wisconsin while the senator- ial primary there was still going on. With a hot primary contest in full swing, it would have been obviously improper for the general to choose between the contestants. Until Tuesday evening, the Eisen- hower staff was confidently sched- uling the Sept. 5 date in Milwaukee. The man who brought the word that these conciliatory measures were not good in fact requested Gen. Eisenhower not to come to none other than Wayne Hood, Eisenhower's own appointee to the important na- tional committee executive post. There is no recent precedent for this kind of open flouting of a Pre- sidential nominee by one of his own subordinates representing a state organization.

Hamilton Fish, of all pc-ople, as the "American party's" senate candi- date in New York, to defeat the capable Republican, Irving Ivcs. Finally, Sen. Taft himself has been asking Gen. Eisenhower to surrender to him on several basic issues, as the condition of Taft's active support of the Republican national ticket. Early reports of this unorthodox and highly un-Re- publican activity of "Mr. Republi- can" have been formally denied. None the less, the reports were and are wholly correct. Not Difficult It should not be difficult for Gen. Eisenhower to reassure Sen. Taft about his stand Taft-Hartley I act. As for the other surrender terms, it is impossible to see Gen. Eisenhower can accept Sen Taft's views on the policy. And i would be downright shocking for Gen. Eisenhower to appease Sen Taft by promising to freeze ou Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York, who did so much to obtain the nomination for the general. A long projected New York meet- ing between Gen. Eisenhower anc Sen. Taft has now been consider- ably deferred, moreover this sug- gests that Sen. Taft means to be obstinate in demanding the pounds of flesh which cannot be given to him. Behind- these all but incredible phenomena, in turn, is a struggle that has been going on ever since the Republican convention. To put it bluntly, Republican national chairman Arthur Summerfield, Sen. Dirksen of Illinois, Wayne Hood and others in the official Re- publican machine, have been try- ing desperately to get Gen. Eisen- hower to run as a sort of pseudo- Robert A. Taft. In this, they have been seconded by pressure from Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin and In- diana, seeming organized by Cole- man of Wisconsin, and perhaps (Continued on Page 8, Column 3.)

Ike Increasing Atom War Risk, Truman Charges Raps General as GOP's 'Captive Candidate BY ERNEST B. VACCARO ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN President Truman openly accused the Eisenhower command today of increasing the risk of atomic war by "talking loosely about lib- erating the enslaved peoples of Eastern Europe." He declared that John Foster Dulles and other "masterminds" of the Eisenhower campaign are playing "cruel, gutter politics with, the lives of countless good men and women behind the Iron Curtain." Truman didn't mention Dulles by name in his foreign policy talk to a railroad station crowd at Park- ersburg, West Va., identifying him only as a Republican "who help- ed in the formulation of our for- eign policy." Cites World Situation Truman then said: "He knows what a precarious situation the world is in. He knows how easy it would be to start a war. But he is perfectly willing to have the Republican party, and the Republican candidate, say things that increase the risk of war, simply in order to get Dulles recently came out of a conference with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the GOP nominee, about the future liberation of peo- ples behind the Iron Curtain and the candidate himself voiced his aspirations in an American Le- ;ion speech. Truman demonstrated his abilily to stir up campaign crowds again last night at Milwaukee when he was interrupted 46 times at a la- bor rally where he described Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower as the "lonely, captive candidate" of Re-1 publican "special interests" trying to "hide behind a new face." Urges Defeat of McCarthy j He called for the defeat of Re-! publican Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy and replied to GOP demands for a change at Washington by saying: "It is time for a change from the big life from the brazen Re- publican efforts to falsify history, to smear and ruin innocent indi- viduals, to trample the basic liber- ties of American people."

There has been no effort to co-ordinate what will se said."

Fifty- two persons drowned and 69 others lost their lives in miscellaneous accidents. The traffic total compared to last year's record 461 deaths. It was below the 480 deaths estimated for the three-day holiday by the National Safety Council. However, Council President Ned H.

Eisenhower today called the Dem- ocratic administration a mess of corruption and scandal and de- manded "a wholesale clean-out of the political bosses in Washing- ton." The Republican presiden- tial nominee cut loose at the Tru- man regime in earnest for the first time in an address prepared to open a flying Southern cam- paign tour. "A 'refreshening' is not what we said Eisenhower. "A face-lifting job won't do it he added. "What the Washington mess must have is the full treatment." Eisenhower said corruption and scandal were brewed by "too many men who are too small for their jobs, too big for their breeches and too long in power." Clean-Out Needed He said a wholesale clean-out was needed to restore decency, honesty and integrity to the na- tional government. "This Washington he said, "is not a one-agency mess or a one-bureau mess or a one- department mess is a top-to- bottora mess." The general declared it was enough to make Americans "hang our heads in shame." The tone of the speech fulfilled advance word from his regional campaign headquarters in New York that he would "pull no punches" on his Dixie trip. Some of his warmest admirers bad complained that Eisenhower's campaigning was too soft. The general's aides said, however, that he had planned deliberately not to fire his ammunition too soon. Eisenhower named no names in his prepared text. Mess Costly He said the cost of the "Wash- ington mess" was being taken out of every American through higher taxes, higher prices and by "cut- ting down the value of every dol- lar you have put away for the future." "You pay for the incompetence, stupidity and corruption on the part of those who have been caught and those who have not been Eisenhower said. He said newspapers reported that "we are getting two airfields in North Africa for the price of five" and that the papers carried other items concerning waste. The general asserted: "If you are as sick and tired of all this as I am; if you aTe as tired as I am of picking up your newspaper every morning and reading about a fresh government scandal, then let's get together and restore decency and honesty and integrity in the nation's capital." In his bid for Southern support, lie Republican nominee said some Democratic spokesmen were 'counting the votes of the South ahead of time along with the cem- etery tombstones and the vacant .ots that they carry in the election rolls in some of the cities they run up North." Eisenhower said he had been hearing "the wild exultance of the rebel yell." "They are hearing it in Wash- ington, he said. "And they don't like it. They like voters who follow orders." Likes Rebel Yells The GOP nominee said he him- self likes rebel yells. "I heard them all the way from North Africa to Central said Eisenhower, the Allied war- time commander in Europe. "All along that road to victory, they meant an end to Nazi tyranny. In this campaign, they mean an end to the mess in Washington." Referring to Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois the Democrat- ic presidential nominee, Eisenhow- er said: "Even my distinguished oppo- nent admits that his party had produced a mess in Washington." (Stevenson told an Aug. 20 news conference that crime, corruption and misconduct are "messy" wherever they are, and they must be eradicated.
