Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Generally Fair, Continued Warm Tonight, Saturday VOLUME 52, NO. 176 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1952 You Can Register Now For Nov. 4 Election EIGHTEEN PAGES Sen. Taft, Ike Agree on All Issues w fit TODAY Ike Regains TouchWith Audiences By JOSEPH ALSOP INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. These words are written in the after- math of Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower's triumphant but not always i happy invasion of Indianapolis. Two things happened here. For the first time since his return from Europe, Eisenhower recap- tured all of his old power to move and stir an audience. And he also distastefully embraced Sen. Wil- liam E. Jenner, who has described Gen. George C. Marshall, the father of Eisenhower's greatness, as a "living lie" and a "front man for traitors." These were great events, which are said to have assured an Eisen- hower victory in Indiana in No- vember. Yet even last night, as the first Wisconsin primary re- turns came in, these events in Indiana were already over-shadow- ed by Sen. Joseph R. MaCarthy's sweeping victory. It is not too much to say that the Eisenhower high command were appalled by the completeness of McCarthy's sweep. And well they might be. In his sole speech of the primary cam- paign, McCarthy publicly showed A Stalled And an overturned truck are pictured on the east slope of foot Donner Summit in Northern California as they were caught by a record early snow that deposited about 6 inches of snow on U. S. Highway 40, Thursday. Traffic over this main east- west route was halted for over two hours until plows could remove the snow. (AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) his contempt for Eisenhower by sneering at "well meaning per- sons" who deplore "character as- sassination" and the very phrases used by Eisen- hower himself. In the same speech, McCarthy also implied that he, and he virtually alone, would carry the Republican party to victory this year, with a typical McCar- thy-style onslaught on Adai E. Stevenson as his weapon. After winning by such a wide margin in Wisconsin. McCarthy is now free to intervene in the national campaign in just the manner he has already hinted at. Peculiar Brand His aim, of course, will be to build himself up even further as a national would be in character for McCarthy to be thinking of himself even now as a presidential possibility. He will un- doubtedly stage his peculiar brand of political vaudeville wherever Republican leaders offer him a stage. Here in the Midwest, he will not lack for invitations. From the standpoint of Eisenhower's nation- al strategy, it will be bad enough to see McCarthy emerge as a leading campaign figure. But there are other factors which must also be considered. Here in Indiana, for instance, the local Re- publican organization, though solid- ly and violently pro-Taft. gave a warm welcome to Gen. Eisenhower for the sake of Sen. Jenner. Jenner himself, wanting Eisenhower's aid in his campaign for re-election, went to Chicago to promise the general that he would rise above principle, and would follow Eisen- hower's policies in the Senate. While Eisenhower was here, Jen- ner kept a positive death-grip on the general's coat-tails. But when the news came from Wisconsin, the mood changed. Remarkable Hit "This was what Bill really need- was a typical comment of one of Jenner's delighted hench- men. "McCarthy will put Bill over now." In other words, Jenner's dependence Texas Flash Floods Leave 5 Dead, Hundreds Homeless BOERNE, Tex. were receding in this fabled hill coun- try of Southwest Texas today after flooding rivers and creeks left five persons dead, two missing and hundreds homeless following drought- blocking rains. But downstream, outside the hill country, Luling on the San Marcos River was reported to be in trouble. The Department of Public Safety said an undetermined num- ber of people were in danger in the area and dispatched amphibious equipment to the scene. Downpours that measured up to 23 inches in 24 hours had sent roariag torrents down river and creek beds that had been dusty and cra'Cked. Highway and railroad bridges were washed out, trains and buses stalled, livestock drowned, low-lying areas flooded, communications downed and resi- dents were sent scurrying for roof Mrs. Holm Takes Over Mike's Job Next Tuesday ST. PAUL Mrs. Mike Holm, 52, takes over Tuesday as Minne- sota's secretary of state, a post her husband held for 32 years un- til his recent death, Gov. Anderson earlier said he would consider appointing the Re- publican nominee in Tuesday's pri- mary. Thursday night he said he would name Mrs. Holm Monday and she would go onto the payroll 24 hours later. Mrs, Holm won the GOP nomi-j tops and high ground. No Estimate There was no estimate of dam- age from Adlai Blames Citizens for Corruption Says Democrats Not Alone at Fault in Capitol By RELMAN MORIN LOS ANGELES Adlai Stevenson went on the offensive today with a denial, framed in his strongest language, that Dem- ocrats alone are responsible for corruption and misconduct in the federal government. "Whose fault is he asked, "that we get what we deserve in And his answer was: "It is the fault of you, the people. Your pub- lic servants serve you right; in- deed often they serve you better than your apathy and indifference deserves." This was the core of Stevenson's answer to one of the central issues in the battle for the presidency. j He quoted his Republican opponent as saying it is "the only issue." Stevenson devoted a whole speech to it in Los Angeles yes- terday. In a second speech here, he painted a picture of the United States 20 years from now, promised a golden future, and said of the Republicans: Building America "They have always been afraid of tomorrow, Seldom has there been a bold idea for building Amer- ica bigger and stronger for the fu- ture but that Republican voices are raised saying, 'You can't do that'." Stevenson carried his campaign today into the Southwest, heading for Arizona and New Mexico. He plans to be in his Springfield head- quarters late Saturday. His two Los Angeles speeches were foundation stones in the cam- paign he is building. In the first, his effort was to destroy the Republican argument that the Democrats alone are to blame for corruption in Washing- ton. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sen. Robert A. Taft wave to crowd outside the general's Co- lumbia University home in New York today after their breakfast table conference. Taft pledged his support to Eisenhower in his fight for the presi- dency. It was the first time the two had met since their brief meeting in Chicago during the Repub- lican National Convention.

Nothing definite about the dates for any such high-level meeting has been decided upon. But Ameri- can and British financial and trade experts are already busy behind the scenes exploring possible pro- posals for action. The present plan calls for gov-) eminent agencies to draft a com- j prehensive report summing up the West's economic problems. This is j SEOUL. Korea artillery- 1. The American people have a to be laid on the desk of the new men today raked the valleys north on Eisenhower is thought to have been greatly re- duced, without lessening Eisen- hower's dependence on the local Republican organization. Mean- while, several of the local leaders are reported to be pouting because Eisenhower did not endorse Jenner by name and praise his singular record. The state chairman. Cale Holder is also quoted as saying that "until Bob Taft blows the bugle, a lot of uc aren't going to fight in the army." In short, although Gen. Eisen- hower scored a remarkable hit in Indianapolis, he has not quite solved his Indiana problem, and the problem has been made worse by the McCarthy victory. Meanwhile, the same process is undoubtedly at work in the other Midwestern states. And in Wiscon- sin particulaily, the McCarthy victory must have given the green light to the numerous regular Re- several lead- ers of the key group, the Republi- can Voluntary Committee who would secretly rather enjoy see- ing Eisenhower lose while Mc- Carthy wins. With McCarthy pre- sumably safe, the Wisconsin boss, Thomas E. Coleman, has little or no inducement to change his de- cision to stand aside from this election. Such is the far from happy situ- ation of Gen. Eisenhower, as he seeks his meeting with the elusive Sen. Robert A. Taft. No doubt Coleman and others like him will be mobilized after all, if Taft will only "blow the bugle." But to get (Continued on Page 13, Column 8.) ALSOPS the Democratic Farmer nomination.

Taft said today that he and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower are in sub- stantial agreement on all and that he will "speak anywhere to the extent of my ability" to further the Republican presidential nominee's campaign. Sen. Taft said he is convinced that Eisenhower "will carry out the policies of the Republican plat- form." Ha said he was "completely satisfied" that Eisenhower would give the United States a good ad- ministration. The senator further asserted that the general had his wholehearted backing with "no qualifications at all." 'Left-Winger' Taft called the Democratic can- didate, Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, "a representative of the left wing and left-winger himself." Taft also said he is convinced Eisenhower believes in the prin- ciples of a statement adopted by the Republican steering committee in Congress.' He told a news conference: "I cannot say I agree with all of Gen. Eisenhower's views on for- eign policy but our differences art merely differences of degree." Later, in answer to a question, he said the degree was largely a matter of spending. He declined to enlarge, saying he would discuss his views of foreign policy in, hit own speeches. i j i-- ov. i r- T Today's breakfast conference placed him with Charles F.

He announced that Slack will re- turn to his former post as chief of the appellate section of the tax di- vision. Slack has been acting chief of the tax division since Nov. 16, 1950, when President Truman fired T. Lamar Caudle for "outside activ- ity." Slack has been under fire of a congressional committee recently in connection with a St. Louis grand jury's investigation last year Saying that he, himself, would speak "on a national broadcast and speak anywhere to the extent of my Taft urged all Americans "who have confidence in my judgment" to support the Republican ticket.

Taft said both he and Eisenhow- ficials, but by all of us. We cannot dictate, we cannot be ir- responsible, if we are to fulfill the mission of leadership among free peoples." War of Liberation He spoke at the convention of the AFL International Association of Machinists. In New York John Foster Dulles, Republican foreign policy adviser, said neither he nor Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower contemplated a "war of liberation" when they rec- ommended a different foreign pol- icy in Eastern Europe. The Republican presidential nominee recently said the United States should not rest until the Communist-dominated countries of Eastern Europe are liberated.

He also mentioned economic measures, internal dis- sension in Communist enslaved countries and radio broadcasts. He criticized present foreign policy planning as inadequate. Acheson told the machinists' convention: "We believe, as anyone must who shares the democratic faith, that free societies can and will be more durable, and that ultimately they must exercise a strong at- traction that will shift the balance in our favor.

The basic formula for good gov- ernment, Stevenson said, is a high- er standard of general public mor- als, plus a serious and continuing interest in politics between elec- tion-years. "A large percentage of us pay no attention to politics and to govern- ment for three years and then turn exclusively to other concerns until the time rolls around again when we must once more clam- orously assure the national salva- tion." He said, too, that there are "tens of thousands" of honest, efficient public officers. The "criticism, abuse and Stevenson added, is making it more difficult to bring good people into govern- ment.
