And he paid Uncle Sam more j than of it in taxes. In making public his federal in- come tax returns, the Democratic presidential nominee in effect chal- lenged his GOP rival, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, to come through with his own. It was a spectacular follow- through to the baring 24 hours earlier of the financial operations through which Stevenson made gifts to supplement the pay of eight top Illinois state officials. Over the 10 through fees and salaries from a variety of jobs amounted to less than one fifth of his total in- come. Most of the income came from dividends on stock in cor- porations, but there was some, too, from farms, rentals, oil leases, and the stock markets.

Income Taxes Paid By Top Candidates Issue in Campaign By JACK BELL NEW YORK paid how much income taxes became a major issue in the presidential campaign today. Gov Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, the Democratic presidential nominee, put Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Republican stand- ard bearer, on a political spot by disclosing that he shelled out 980 to the federal government in income taxes in the last 10 years. Stevenson, in effect, challenged his opponent to make a similar tax listing. There seems no doubt at Eisen- hower regional headquarters here that the general had earned much more than Stevenson's reported income in the same per- iod, but had paid much less in taxes. Democratic Answer The Democratic answer to the emotional expense fund incident involving Sen. Richard M. Nixon of California, the GOP vice presidential candidate, found no immediate reply in the Repub- lican camp. The Democrats' end-around po- litical play appeared to have caught the Eisenhower advisers wondering how they could explain satisfactorily a ruling by the Bu- reau of Internal Revenue. The bureau had made a ruling permit- ting Eisenhower to keep three fourths of the income he received from his book, "Crusade In Europe." This to others in I some like the I general to pay only 25 per cent i tax instead of the higher income Irate, because he was held to be operating outside his usual field of activities when he furnished the information for the published volume. Perhaps with something of this in mind, Stevenson laid down last I night a summarization showing he jhad received a total income from 11942 through 1951 Of on I which he paid income taxes of Eisenhower worked on campaign speeches at his home yesterday, after attending morning church services. Work on Speeches Aides of the candidate said there would be no Sunday comment on income taxes or any other topic. Working on the speeches with Eisenhower were his top advis- er, Gov. Sherman Adams of New Hampshire. They were to continue the task today. Aides said Eisenhower had no appointments scheduled for today at his Hotel Commodore head- quarters.

YORK Dwight Eisenhower's headquarters announced today that he will make j public his entire financial situa- j tion. The Republican presidential can- didate thus accepted an implied I challenge from Gov. Adlai Steven- I son of IDinois, the Democratic presidential nominee, to bare the status of his finances. j Stevenson made public Sunday I his income and tax payments for j the last 10 years. A spokesman at Eisenhower's headquarters said he did not know j at this point whether the general would report his tax returns for each year or whether it w-ould be I a general financial statement. The headquarters announcement gave no indication of exactly when the statement would be released.

Warns Return Of Republicans May Bring War President Moving Across North Dakota And Montana Today By ERNEST 8. VACCARO i ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN I President Truman today bilterly j denounced Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- bower's charges of corruption in i government by calling him a "front man for an unholy crew" of lob- byists using that issue as "a poli- tical -football." Truman tore loose with one of I his most scathing attacks on the Republican presidential nominee in a "whistle-stop" speech at Fargo, N. D., where he told a trainside crowd they'd belter hesitate about returning the Republicans to power if they "want to avoid a third world war." Eisenhower, he said, "seems to be listening to some strange ad- vice so far as foreign policy is concerned." (The Truman special train, traveling on the Burlington Railroad, passed. East "Winona. at 1 a. m.) Issue of Corruption The President tackled the issue of corruption in his administration on his first formal whistle-stop speech of his 15-day coast to coast tour. He said he had been "getting rid wrong- doers" over the "opposition of Re- publicans in Congress." Truman made an earlier rear platform appearance at Brecken- ridge, Minn., where he spoke off- the-cuff. Other "whistle-stop" talks were dovvn for Grand Forks, Larrimore, Lakota, Devils Lake, Minot, Ber- thold. Stanley, Tioga, Willjston ia North Dakota and Wolfe Point, Mont. It was a gloves-off attack Tru- man turned on his former chief- of-staff at Fargo. He said of the Eisenhower who once quoted Truman as saying Tru- man would support him for any- thing he might want, including the presidency, that the general has swallowed the propaganda of the special interests, "hook, line and sinker." Front Man for Lobbies "He may not know Truman said of Eisenhower, "but he has i become a front man for the lob- jbies. i "They are sending him around j the country with advance agents to put up bill boards and balloons j and pass out the confetti. They i have plenty of money to put into i these things. The Wall Street bank- lers are just pouring it out." 1 Truman said Eisenhower admits 1 he's trying to win the election by "appealing to the people's emot- tions. not to their intellects." 1 "That's why you won't find any- j thing in most of his speeches ex- cept slogans, generalities and scare the President said. "I think it's insulting to the I American people to tell them they make up their minds according to i their emotions, and not on the basis iof the great issues that are be- fore them." Truman called Eisenhower a candidate "who has spent all his I life in the Army and doesn't know much about what has been going I on in the United States." Reminds Farmers To the farmer he said: "The last time you had a Re- publican administration your farm, mortgages were being foreclosed so fast you couldn't count them." "Are you covered by social sec- urity or railroad he asked. "Are you counting on that to help you in your old age? Then jlican candidate for president said if the American people want sec- urity the best place to find it is in jail. "Above all, let me ask you: Do you want to avoid a third world war? Then you'd better look out. The Republican party seems to be listening to some strange advice !so far as foreign policy is con- Icerned." Truman said that Adlai Steven- son, the Democratic nominee, has everything required for the presi- dency, "great ability, experience I in civil government, humility and for the common miles per hour from east, baro-i for own administration meter 30.16, rising, humidity 64.
