Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Cloudy, Snow Flurries Tonight; Clear Sunday Be a Goodfeilow VOLUME 52, NO. 254 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, DJECEMBER 13, 1952 Ike Cut Deeply By Truman Blow President-Elect Eisenhower sends one down the fairway at Kaneohe golf course in Ho- nolulu in one of the brief per- iods of relaxation he has taken during the ardous trip to Ko- rea and return. TODAY Budget Troubles For Ike By STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON Leading Dem- ocrats, recovering a little from the heavy blow, .which Jthey Nov. 4, are beginning to ask them- selves whethar this blow was not really a blessing in disguise. One way to understand what they have in mind is to consider the budget message which Harry S. Truman, in his last important act as Presi- dent, will shortly submit to Con- gress. This Truman budget message will leave a sort of ghostly Tru- man imprint on the Eisenhower regime, since the budget and the policy of any administration are two sides of the same coin. And astute Democrats are rather slyly aware that this Truman budget will be no political asset to the Eisenhower administration. To Cut Budget According to reliable report, Tru- man will ask much less for de- fense appropriations than is gen- erally anticipated. For purposes of comparison, Truman in his last budget message asked Congress to appropriate a total of 586 billion, of which about billion was for American'defense and mutual aid. Congress actually appropriated about billion for these pur- poses. Truman and Budget Direct- or Frederick Dawton are now bus- ily paring to the bone the compar- able figure for ihis year's budget message. There may be last-m i n u t e changes, but reliable indications are that Truman will ask Congress to appropriate only about bil- lion or so for defense and mutual aid. Other cutbacks are planned elsewhere, even including the Atomic Energy Commission. In short, Truman will ask a whopping billion or so less than he asked last year, and S7 billion less than Congress actually appropriated. At first glance, this may look like good news for the Eisenhower administration. In fact, it is noth- ing of the sort. As far as appro- priations are concerned, even the most economy-minded members of Congress will hardly be able to point to the Truman budget mes- sage as evidence of wild extrava- gance. But the most economy- minded members of Congress are by no means necessarily the best judges of the wisest level.of de- fense expenditures. Ike May Raise Figure This matter of the wisdom of the proposed cutbacks is another and vitally important matter. Here it is enough to say that President Eisenhower, after a good hard look at some of the skeletons left in President Truman's closet, may very well decide to ask for higher defense appropriations than those requested in Truman's budget mes- sage. And the spectacle of a Re- publican President asking Congress for more money than a Democrat- ic President would not be displeas- ing to Democrats. Even if the appropriations re- quested in the Truman budget mes- sage are not increased, the Eis- enhower administration will not en- joy the political benefits supposed- ly inherent in reduced government spending. Indeed, the reverse will be true. For there is, of course, a (Continued on Page 12, Column 3) ALSOPS Friendly Ties Between Pair Badly Strained By DON WHITEHEAD HONOLULU W) A reliable source today said President Tru- man's "demagoguery" statement cut President elect Eisenhower deeply and just about killed any chance of friendly relations be- tween the two in the future. This reaction was disclosed a short time before Eisenhower was i to leave Hawaii bound for New York City, which he left secretly just two weeks ago for Korea. He is due to arrive at the Marine air terminal at LaGuardia Field at 1 p. m., EST, tomorrow. The' once friendly relationship between Eisenhower and Truman, it was said, had been badly strained by accusations made dur- ing the heat of the presidential the new incident points to a coldly formal relation- ship in the future. "This looks like the finish of any informal across-the-desk meetings between the this source said. "If there is another meeting it probably will be a cold affair." Low Blow Truman told a news conference Thursday that the Eisenhower trip to Korea was a "piece of political demagoguery." It is known here that Eisenhower thinks this was a low blow which he did not de- serve from the President. Also, Eisenhower is represented as thinking that the Truman state- i ment was poor psychology for the troops in Korea who had received a lift in spirits from his visit to combat units. The President elect considers the Korean the confer- ences that followed with his top advisers a worthwhile venture that already has paid good divi- dends in the formation of future policy. The general held his final major conference with his advisers Thursday evening before most of them left Hawaii to return to the mainland. One of his advisers said, "This meeting was the most important of the whole'trip. It was very, very important in setting the course of the new administration." No Decisions It is understood there were no pin-point decisions made but that the group "did a lot of business" in establishing overall agreements in which Korea was a part. Since that meeting, Eisenhower has spent most of his time play- ing golf, resting and trying to shake a cold. He is expected to return to his Commodore Hotel headquarters in New York Monday to continue his work there is a likeli- hood he will meet with Gen. Doug- las MacArthur some time next week to hear MacArthurs views on Korea.

Those arrested today, in Watkins earlier had suggested that President Truman explore any MacArthur Korean peace plan at once with President-elect Ei- senhower and MacArthur. His pro- posal drew a tart rejection Thurs- day from the President. Doubts New Plan Truman told a news conference (1) he doubted MacArthur really has thought up- -a -new plan, de- spite the general's recent state- ments; (2) he believed Eisenhow- er's trip to the Korean War zone was the result of campaign dem- agoguery, and (3) he had no in- tention of inviting- either man to a meeting such as Watkins pro- posed, although he would see either or both if they asked for an interview. MacArthur in a speech Dec. 5 said: "I am confident there is a clear and definite solution to the French Morocco's capital, were Ahmad Bennani, former judge of the tribunal here and 1951 mem- ber of the Sultan's inner cabinet; Mohammed Bahnini, former judge and now a professor at the Mos- lem college in Rabat; and Moham- med El Fassi, former professor at Karoyouen University, Million-Dollar Fire in Maine Burns 2 Hotels day night. The spectacular, wind-driven blaze destroyed 10 wooden build- ings. Four others, housing eight more businesses, were damaged. A dozen families, living in apart- ments over some of the stores, were left homeless. City Manager Fred D. Farns- worth, who made the loss estimate, said there had been reports of looting. Six men were injured battling the flames. They were part of a fire force mobilized from 13 com- munities. They came from as far away as Bangor, 50 miles north of here. His words were viewed widely as meaning he has such a solu- tion to offer, that it differs from his previous proposals and that he wanted a chance to present it to Eisenhower or Truman. Proposals for congressional questioning of MacArthur on his plan came yesterday from two sources, both Democrats Sen. Hunt of Wyoming and Rep. Wick- ersham of Oklahoma. Immediate reaction was mixed. Sen. Hunt appealed to Chairman RusseU (D Ga) of the Senate Armed Services Committee to call SENATOR Dead Hogs and the twisted wreckage of a large livestock truck give mute testimony to a grade crossing accident near Austin Friday night in which two men lost their lives. A live hog, center foreground, ambles through the debris. The force of the impact of the truck against the train derailed nine of 13 freight cars.

The report was that the State Department had refused to grant Skvortsov a return visa. There was no immediate comment from the U. S. delegation to the U. N. This development was disclosed shortly after Zinchenko's secretary, Evelyn Thaler, appeared before the Senate internal security subcom- mittee and identified herself as a former Communist. She said she became bored with it all and got out of the Communist ranks. She was praised by the committee for her co-operation. Associates of Skvortsov refused saults. Other Republic of Korea soldiers attacked Reds on Big Nori, some 300 yards to the north. Both Western Front hills, gate- posts on the traditional northern invasion route to this old capital, were grabbed by Communists in swift attacks early Thursday. They are on the Imjin River about 40 miles north of Seoul. The drive up steep, frozen Little Nori was the ItOh countersmash by the ROKs. It turned out to be the sixth time the peak has changed hands since the Chinese picked it as the scene for their latest small-scale offensive. Costly Battle The Nori fighting, reminiscent of the hot battles on Sniper Ridge and Triangle Hill in Central Korea a month ago, has cost the Reds an estimated dead, wounded and captured. The estimate did not include Red losses today, or, the toll taken by artillery and planes pounding the Communist staging areas immedi- ately behind the two Noris. The weary ROKs reached the crest of Little Nori about 10 a. m. today. They went up behind a savage Allied air and artillery pounding of the peak. Their first act was to kick off the remnants of Reds who had rolled them back down the hill nine times previously. A U. S. military adviser to the ROKs called them "the toughest little soldiers in the world." Reds renewed their assaults within a few hours after the wiry South Koreans reached Little Nori's crest. Under heavy fire, ROK engineers attempted to set up portable log bunkers and string barbed wire to make the peak de- fensible. U. S.
