which raised a question whether he might get kickbacks within his own party They were 1 Although the Korean conflict was caused by terrible blunders by the present administration he said this country had no choice but to intervene We might be much worse off now if we hadnt acted as we did he added Many Republicans contend that administration blunders touched off the invasion of South Korea but disagree sharply on the sound ness of American intervention 2 An attack on Red China Ei senhower said would mean start ing another war far more terrible than the one now going on On this point he

Stevenson has said and done He gave a crisp no comment in answer to an inquiry as to whether he is satisfied with the way Stevenson and Vice Presi dential Nominee John J Spark man of Alabama have started off their campaign Some said if hi were satisfied he would be quick to say so No Mess Truman said he knows nothing of any mess in Washington and would not comment when pressed for his reaction to Stevensons news conference remarks that resignations and indictments have proved there is crime and corrup tion in Washington Nor would he comment about Sparkmans remark that he be lieved the recent steel strike had been mishandled But Truman said he did not think Stevenson and Sparkman were making a target out of him He said they couldnt because he is the key to the the issues revolve around what he has done in recent years GOP National Chairman Arthur E Summerficld was quick to make political hay out of this last comment He said it was further proof Stevenson must base his campaign on Trumans record Eisenhower was in Denver Fri day preparing for his campaign kickoff Sunday he flics to New York where he addresses the American Legions national con vention the following

will be tfreele happily by Goodwins foes in the Iowa Republican Parly The decision reportedly made Thursday in Kansas City Kan after Midwest GOP leaders conferred with Eiaenhow or was a must as far as many Republicans were con cerned The group that mot with Ike and Jiis staff included it number of lowans who reportedly argued that Goodwins appiiintmenl bnd jeop imlined Republican chnnccs for victory in certain key Midwest The whole story of liwv Goodwin came to be appointed to head the national GOP farm drive probably never will be fold in print because i belongs to the sanctum of luler
