been in close touch with all phases of the case but who asked not to be identified A substantial portion of the struck industry was described as just as eager as Lewis to settle on the full wage increase and get production going again An appeal to the President and Putnam it was felt would at least serve to remove the deadlocked situation from dead center An air of uneasiness prevailed in

Link ENROUTE WITH STEVEN Adla Stevensons impassioned accu sation that Dwight D Eisen hower is deliberately condon ing a sly and ugly campaign against him opened a bitter new phase today in the stretcl drive for the presidency It looked like a savage and bare knuckle fight was the inevitabl ending for this hardfought battle The Democratic candidate ripped into Eisenhower last night in Cleve land with a speech in which hi defended the character testimony he gave for Alger Hiss convicted of perjury after denying he gave State Department secrets to a Rus sian spy ring And Stevenson attacked his GOP opponent and John Foster Republican foreign affairs adviser being even more vulnerable to criticism than he in the His case It was known that Stevenson and his advisers regarded the speech as one of the most vital of the entire one which possibly could make or break Stev enson on the issue to communism In his combination of defense and attack Stevenson voiced hiscon viction he expects to be

a later broadcast before the election All phases of the forthcoming election except party considera tions will be developed by the speakers Questions asked before the discussion will help the speak ers to cover all points of interest to listeners However any ques tions which may arise as the result of the discussions may be sent to the radio station for the later cleanup broadcast It is a program purely in the public interest and is calculated to making voting easy for those young people who will vote for the firsl and others who are uncertain ol the correct procedures firm against possible Red aggrejk sjon Who Cut MinersWage Because the present walkout hy the coal miners of the nation had its beginning deep in the counsels of the Democratic administration in Washington there is a justi fiable suspicion that for the first time in history our government has called a strike in a private industry Management and the United Mine Workers agreed upon a wage increase in the amount of per day for coal miners Perhaps the miners union wanted It is certain the operators wanted less Bnt the figure agreed upon was by peaceful understanding between operators and the union At this point the government stepped in and ordered a reduction of that figure from the agreed iipoji to a figure of per day increase Because of the refusal of the Democratic administration to approve the increase agreed upon by the industry and its employes the miners refused to work pending a satisfactory adjustment of their differences or the reinstatement of the Overlook the Shakespearean pronouncements of John L Lewis and face up to the facts of life Miners in the coal fields of Western Pennsylvania and elsewhere work but 180 to 200 days each year The nature of the work they do and the occupational hazards involved justify this work schedule In any case their total anniial wages were adjusted to the increase in the cost of living over which they have no direct control It Avas a commission set up and controlled by the Demo cratic administration which has callously cutthe agroed upon increase below what the union and management de cided was a fair wage adjustment It is the Democrats in power in Washington who have played fast and loose with the nations eoal miners In the last weeks of the Presidential election campaign Truman has seen fit to toy with the wages of a large segment of the nations workers At a time when it is the unscrupulous political campaign methods of the Democrats give reason to assume iHs a present cut can be restored in time to win for the Stevonson cause Triflimwith the livelihood of miners and their families is repre hensible and vicious This is the first time in the nations history dial men and management have gotten together on a adjust ment only to have the government step in to milliJY he settlement Why Look for some advantageous maneuver by Die Demo cratic administration in the hope the votes of the miners can be coralled First the administration overrules settlement to tell a great labor unions members how much they can have in wages and how much they cannot have iJien it is apparent they think the situation oim be turned to political advantage Doesnt this smack of Russian Com munists slave state Think if you will what a tenday idleness will mean to the miners coming as it does in the earlv Christmas shopping season The loss to the miners will be an almost inconceivable figure even if the Truman inner circle of counselors pull a reverse action just before the election There therefore no comfort to be derived from Democratic mockery motivated by an insincere and svnthc iclove tor the miners even if the before November 4 Dwight Eisenhower may not be familiar with all he gimmicks of corrupt administration rule but he is minded and fair enough to detest such treatment of the minors Ike Blasts Tactics Of Top Demos A MO A K D RISEN IlO K R S SPECIAL AP General Dwight Eisenhower moved his campaign into Michigan
