The result, it may as well be admitted, has not been immensely enlightening. Yet there is one point of strong agree- ment. Some very phoney cliches are now being parroted by all and sundry. One such phoney is the story that Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson "has j been talking over the head of the average man." This one is oddly reminiscent of the soothing prom- ises of the professional huckster; j that you can join the national elite by buying this mass-produced toothpaste or that mass-purchased deodorant. People are a bit cynical about! the huckster's promises nowadays, but a lot of them take the Steven- son story with comic literalness. Stevenson Cements Ties In Texas Reaffirms Sfand Offshore Oil Belongs to U.S. By JACK BELL EN ROUTE WITH STEVENSON 'M Gov. Adlai Stevenson cemented relations with the regular Demo- crats of Texas today after challeng- ing Gov. Allan Shivers and other bolters on their home grounds in Ft. Worth and Dallas. The Democratic presidential nominee who reaffirmed at the Dallas State Fair last night his op- position to giving Texas title to the potentially oil rich submerged lands up to 10 miles off its shores planned a breakfast conference with venerable but vigorous John Nance Garner, former vice presi- dent. After an hours stop in Uvalde, Tex., the Illinois governor's hasti- ly-coupled up campaign train was scheduled to roll into San Antonio. Then he planned to fly to Houston, regarded as the principal Texas stronghold of his Republican op- ponent, Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower. Hopes to Carry State Sen.
