I'm My Own Man, Adlai Tells Voters President Denounces New Immigration Bill For Top Job, Warren Says By WARREN ROGERS JR WASHINGTON wi- President Truman said today Gen, Dwight D. Eisenhower has gone "morally blind" and is willing to accept Nazi practices 'although he took a leading part in liberating Europe from their domination." In a scathing denunciation of the McCarran immigration bill, passed by Congress June 27 over his veto, Truman said it adds up to "the philosophy of racial superi- ority developed by the Nazis." Among those who voted for the bill, Truman said, were Republican Sen. Richard M. Nixon of Califor- the GOP candidate for vice Republicans Sen. William E. Jenner of Indiana and Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin, running for re-election this year. Truman noted that Eisenhower, as the Republican presidential can- TODAY Tight Race Indicated In Texas By JOSEPH ALSOP DALLAS, Tex. Gen. Eisen- hower's triumphal invasion of Tex- as has spot-lighted the opening of a new epoch. Voting Republican, in national elections at least, has at last become respectable in the South. Many of the present Eisen- hower supporters in this state al- so supported Gov. Thomas E. Dew- ey or joined the Dixiecrats four years ago; but they were pretty shamefaced about it then. Now they are proud, almost to the point of blatancy, of their stand for Ike. There is such a thing in polit- ics, however, as being too respect- able. The visitor from the shabby- genteel East, although bewildered by the sheer vitality and dynam- didate, has endorsed these men, I and added: j "The Republican candidate for the presidency can not escape re-1 sponsibility for his endorsements. I He has had an attack of moral blindness, for today, he is willing to accept the very practices that identified the so-called 'master race' although he took a leading part in liberating Europe from their domination." Message to Be Road The President's remarks were in an address prepared for reading by Howland H. Sargeant, assistant secretary of state, at the mobiliza- tion conference of the National Jewish Welfare Board in Washing- ton, In the speech, Truman apolo- gized for not appearing in person to deliver it. He could not do this, he said, because he is now on a whistle-stop campaign tour through New England in behalf of the Dem- ocrats' Stevenson-Sparkman tick- et. At Hartford, meanwhile, Connec- ticut's Republican Gov. John Lodge quoted Truman as saying in a speech there last night that Re- publicans were "against the immi- gration of Jews and Catholics." Lodge said this was "the most distressingly false statement which has ever been uttered by a high public official of this nation." He said Republican administrations had welcomed millions of people from all over Europe. In his speech to the Jewish Wel- fare Board, Truman said he was proud of his part in the creation of the state of Israel and hoped his successor would continue tech- nical assistance to that Near East country. He praised the Displaced Persons Act, which expired last June, and said it had made Amer- ica stronger in character and skills. Fought All Way Then the President turned to the MeCarran Act, which he said Con- gress passed after he asked for leg- islation to admit more dis- placed persons over the next three years. "Although Warns Nation Must Reject GOP Ideas Of Isolationism By The Associated Press California's Governor Earl War- ren says that Dwight D. Eisen- hower is the best qualified man in the U. S, to lead the nation toward world peace. Addressing an estimated Minnesotans in a swing from St. Paul, across the Iron Range to Duluth, Warren repeated before four audiences that the Republican presidential candidate is "more capable than any other man of giving us the leadership we need." In St. Paul, he quoted the Demo- cratic campaign slogan, "We never had it so good." "But it isn't so good, what with fighting one war now and being confronted with a third the governor said. Dinner at Virginia By JACK BELL SAN DIEGO, Calif, Ad- lai Stevenson declared today that the "best chance for a just and peaceful world" hinges on the re- sults of next month's election. Assuming a humble role in his battle with Gen. Dwight D, Eisen- hower, the GOP nominee, the I1U- 1 nois governor said in an address I prepared for an early morning ral-j jly here that "no man on earth can truly measure up to the awful re- I sponsibilities of the presidency." 1 But while he said he was humble in the face of the fact that the voters might make him the next president, said he is not uncertain nor hesitant. "At least my mind is my own mind and I am my own he declared in an obvious refer- ence to his charges that Eisen- hower has surrendered leadership in the Republican party to Sen. Robert A.

Continuing in the same vein be- fore a Hibbing audience, Warren said: "Not so long ago, your own Democratic senator (Humphrey) said Eisenhower is the only man to lead this country out of its diffi- culties. Someone, an even higher level Democrat, said the general deserves anything within the gift of the American people.
