The Democratic president i a 1 nominee asserted in a nation-wide television and radio broadcast that when the Reds were stopped in Korea the aciion "was received with enthusiastic shouts of approv- al by the overwhelming majority of the American people, and even by the Republican leadership."

"How long can we keep on fight- ing in Korea, paying high taxes, helping others to help he asked. "There is only one answer: We can keep it up as long as we have to, and we will." Cites Mail He said his mail indicated the people are troubled most by these four questions: "Korea, how serious is the Communist danger in this country, is our prosperity in danger, and can we get the highest integrity and dignity in Taking up these issues, he said: "No approach to the problem of corruption in government is good enough if it ignores the deeper problem of corruption in men. "We do not say that n bank is corrupt because a cashier embez- zles. The problem of corruption and graft in the simplest form, is a problem of individual morals, public and private. "Behind every crooked tax col- lector is a crooked tax payer." He praised Democratic Sens. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee, Paul Douglas of Illinois and William Fulbright of Arkansas and Reps. Frank L.
