Adlai E, Stevenson declared today that the Republicans "prefer slogans, emotion and confetti" to facing up to their record on the campaign issues of peace and prosperity. The Democratic presidential nom- inee, beginning here a flying trip to the West and Texas, voiced a ringing indictment of what he called a long record of "Re- publican isolationism in foreign af- fairs and inaction in domestic affairs." In a speech prepared for a Cas- per campaign rally, the Illinois governor expressed "sorrow" and "dismay" at the tactics adopted by his Republican opponent, Gen. D wight D, Eisenhower. Asserting that the "Old Guard reactionaries" of the Republican party had "opposed every measure to build up America's strength and alliances against the Communist Stevenson added: Pressure on Central my sorrow and seem to have induced or forced the general to alter his own positive principles and to adopt equivocal and hesitant views that savor more of isolation and re- treat than security and confi- dence." Firing a broadside at his op- ponents, the Illinois governor de- clared: "There are some desperately im- portant issues, although you would j never guess it from listening to j the Republican candidates. They j don't like to talk about issues very j much. They prefer slogans, emotion and confetti. i "Eisenhower's advance men have furnished confetti for the crowds which turn out to greet him. 'It's easy to understand why you look at the voting record of the Republicans in Congress for the last 20 years, you can see right awa.y why they decided that the less' said" about the issues the better." Stevenson said that in cattle country language "Old Guard re- actionaries" now "own the Repub- lican party, hoofs, hide and tal- j low." I "They control the Republicans in he said.
