Ike Ready to Rip Into Truman in Last Lap of Drive By DON WHITEHEAD ABOARD EISENHOWER SPECIAL W> Dwight D. Eisenhower beamed his political charm on Washington State today amid signs that a rip-snorting Eisenhower-Truman feud will highlight the final month of the presidential campaign. Eisenhower has scrapped his "no personalities" tactics and aides say he can be expected to rip into President Truman in future speeches as he did Saturday mgh.t in Fargo, N. D.

Truman's, it is frankly admitted that the Democratic campaign strategy has gone slightly awry. The idea, of course, was for Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson to make his mark with the voters during Sep- tember, while the President kept silent. Then, with Stevenson al- ready established as a major na-, tional personality, the said, "I am told, salvo after was to get in his licks, as he is red hot salvo was fired at me. Now, I merely say that I have I been shot at by rear artillery. 11 am far too old to be greatly dis- turbed by noisy but harmless blanks. "However, it seems that we are supposed to accept that kind of racket as typifying the purpose or nature the current Democratic campaign: sound without sub- stance; promise without perfor- mance; howls without harmony." His audience roared with laugh- ter. And Eisenhower appeared to a brief morning speech in Spokane. Then he was to visit Ephrata, Wenatchee and Everett before making a major speech in Seattle tonight. He was expected in these speeches to outline his views on reclamation and power develop- ment. Stung by Eisenhower was stung to anger by the attacks on him by Truman, who asserted he was a "front man" for special lobby interests. Saturday night in Fargo Eisen- hower opened his address by re- minding his audience that "an- other campaign" had preceded his through the city a few days before. This was a reference to Truman's appearance. "Now from its rear Charles B. Hentgei Young Man Admits Attack On Boy, 6 ST.

CORNELL SPRINGFIELD, 111, Ad- lai E. Stevenson's campaign for the presidency reached a cross roads a shift in em- phasis and issues. From a series of speeches built largely around selling the idea that another Democratic election vic- tory will mean continued prosper- ity, the Democratic nominee turned to drafting a major address on the j menace of Communism.

You discover (his failure among the amazing crowds that run out every- where for Truman. Although the President himself is unfailingly generous, the Stevenson failure is acknowledged by the more realis- tic members of Truman's own en- tourage. It has been much discuss- ed by the Democratic candidates and attendant politicians who have swarmed through this Wain from Montana onwards.

The trouble does not seem to be that Stevenson's speeches have been too elevated or too "high lev- although a tough more political of the administration's he said. "He asserts that the Demo- crats must march to the weird clatter he inspires, but his hand- picked lieutenant shows definite pugnacity might have helped. Judg- signs of annoyance, even disagree- ing by all the signs, the trouble is that only a few of the voters have either heard or read what Stevenson has had to say. In part, it had better be confess- ed, the blame lies with the news- papers and allied businesses. They have gone all-out to build up Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, while merely according Stevenson the limited .privilege of a chilly hear- ing. Eisenhower was a nationally ad- vertised product long before the campaign began. Not Well-Known Stevenson was not well-known ex- cept in Illinois, and had no ready- made audience. Thus the almost unanimous coldness the engines of publicity has been a particularly heavy handicap to the Illinois gov- ernor. In part, however, the fault is clearly Stevenson's. His handicap was plain from the start. The way to overcome the handicap was also vigorously and imagina- tively exploiting Stevenson's re- markable radio and television per- sonality from the beginning. He ought to have built his campaign around regular and frequent fire- side chats, plus perhaps national question programs. These would have concentrated attention on him, and have given meaning to the scattered shots of his cross country campaigning. The value of this method was early discussed at Stevenson head- quarters. It has at last been rec- ognized, according to report, be- cause of the success of Stevenson's fireside talk from Springfield a few days ago. It is a bit late now, however, to get (he original Stevenson-Tru- man strategy into working order again. Truman is stumping now, and with great effectiveness if one can judge by his huge and enthu- siastic audiences. With the Presi- dent marching across the country, pouring it on the Republicans with inexhaustible vigor, it will be hard for Stevenson to recapture his rightful place at the head of the parade. At the same time, this distinct dislocation of the original Demo- cratic strategy ought not to inspire any Republican complacency. Maybe the people already wholly (Continued on Page 11, Column 4) ALSOPS ment. He has gone so far as to im- ply that the drum major has made a mess of things. so confusion reigns among them. And now we are getting an educated accent welded on to the old Democrat demagoguery." This was the kind of "give-em- hell" talk that Eisenhower had never attempted before. His lieu- tenants were elated by the reaction from the Fargo audience. It appeared that Eisenhower may aim his heaviest fire at Tru- (Confinued on Page 14, Column 5) IKE Hoffmann said afterwards that he and his department have fol- lowed a course of neutrality on the amendment.

All day long Saturday, at Ft. finally at St. Paul, Stevenson took harder and harder swats at Eisen- hower and the GOP. He built up to a climax in St. Paul, where he named names and even called a few.

Miss Driscoll arrived in New York Friday after telling her mother in Massachusetts she planned to meet some girl friends and look for a job here. Wiseman, a grandfather, gave the fire alarm himself in a tele- phone call to the night clerk. Hotel employes then chopped through the door of their 29th-story room. They found Wiseman and his companion nude and unconscious banker on the floor, she stretched across a window sill- police said. Their clothes may have been burned off. Wiseman was dead when a doc- tor arrived. Miss Driscoll died 14 hours later. Newsmen were barred from the room. A hotel employe said it was gutted and that several empty and one partly drained whisky bottles were in the room. The fire apparently started near the bed, possibly from a cigarette. It was confined to Wiseman's room. Wiseman had come to New York after attending a bankers' conven- tion in Atlantic City, N. J. 'wreck the new a war on the Soviet Union, the "chief opponent of a new war and the chief pillar of peace." Peace The Soviet Union, Malenkov con- tinued, is "unwaveringly carrying out a policy of peaceful co-opera- tion with all but he warned that because of the "threats of new aggression from the side of the Western warmong- ers, it is strengthening and will strengthen its defense capabili- ties." Malenkov's long speech was made public first on a broadcast early today by Tass, the Soviet news agency. (Non-Communist re- porters are not attending the Con- gress The keynote address, delivered in the past by Stalin himself, pre- sumably laid the basis for policies to be approved by the Congress. (Malenkov is generally regarded as Stalin's most likely successor.) Also on the agenda of the Con- gress sessions, expected to last a week, are approval of the new five-year plan launched 18 months ago for vast increases in indus- trial and agricultural production, and major changes in the party's organization, including replace- ment of the Politburo and Organ- ization Bureau (Orgburo) by a Presidium. M a I e n k o v's bitter charges against the United States were pre- ceded by similar accusations from another Politburo member, former Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov, who denounced U. S. "ruling cir- cles" for creating "aggressive war alliances like the North Atlantic bloc directed against peace-loving states of the Soviet Union, the Chi- nese Peoples Republic and coun- tries of the peoples democracies." The bosses of the U n i d said Molotov, knew from the experience of the Hitler- ites that it was impossible even to dream about world dom- ination without the use of force." Malenkov Charged the United States with creating bases through- out the world and "remilitarizing West Germany and Japan" for "criminal purposes." These were some of his other charges against the United States: Other Charges The U. S. "is refusing to ban atom and germ weapons and re- duce conventional armaments." The Soviet Union wants to do so. The tl. S. "refuses to conclude a .peace pact." Russia wants one. The U. S.

T. Grant Store, 66 E. 3rd St. The burglars were identified as two Winona and 17 years old, of whom has no previous police record. The older youth has been juvenile authorities on several pre- vious occasions for various of- fenses. Sheriff Fort took the older youth into custody late Saturday after- noon while police arrested the sec- ond when he returned from a brief visit in Minneapolis Sunday night. Chief Bingold revealed that early today the 16-year-old dictated a three-page statement to him, As- sistant Chief of Police Everett Laak and Detective George K. Meyers admitting the series of thefts which netted loot amounting to nearly Confetcion Sheriff George Fort, likewise, has obtained a similar admission from the 17-year-old who was taken into custody during the sheriff's inde- pendent investigation of breakins and thefts' in the county. The sheriff said the older youth has admitted that he drove the stolen car used by the pair on the evening they removed the safe from Doerer's and the sheriff in- dicated that formal charges of au- tomobile theft will be filed against the 17-year-old. This morning, the younger youth was being questioned further by Chief Bingold, Laak and Meyers at police headquarters while his accomplice, held in the juvenile de- tention room of the county jail, was being quizzed by Sheriff Fort regarding several thefts here and in Goodview. Chief Bingold said that the state- ment dictated today by the 16-year- old shows the pair responsible for: The Doerer's breakin Sept. 17. An unsuccessful safe-crack- ing attempt at Grant's, Sept. 21. The breakin and theft of SlOO from the Bright Spot, 253 Jack- son St., Sept, 6. The theft of S20 from Brandt's Grocery, 477 E. San- born St., Aug. 17. The theft of in a break- in at the Catholic Recreational Center early in August. The youth also confirmed state- ments made by his older compan- ion to Sheriff Fort that the two stole a car owned by Dr, Philip v-R. Heise, 203 E. Broadway, for use on the evening they stole the safe from Doerer's. The younger boy further alleged that his conversations with his companion indicated that the 17- year-old was responsible for a breakin at the Stevenson Coal Co., 73 W. Mark St., Aug. 7 and the West End Recreation Center Aug. 25. No formal statements regarding these two breakins had been ob- tained at noon, however. Several arrows and an archery bow were taken from the recreation center but apparently nothing of value was taken from the fuel company. Arrests Follow Tips Both the police and sheriff made their arrests from tips supplied by persons who had heard the youths speak of the series of breakins. The younger boy was taken into custody Sunday night after he had returned from a one-day visit in Minneapolis. Meyers said that he received bis tip Saturday afternoon from a youth who refused to disclose the identity of the two burglars. Sunday morning, Meyers and Laak went to see the father of the boy who had given them the-orig- inal information and the father said that he had heard his son mention the last name of the 16- year-old. Sheriff Fort, previously had in- terviewed the informant Friday when he questioned him regarding the theft of several handbags from (Continued on Page 3, Column 7} YOUTHS
