be sudden or the Soviet Union although it cannot be considered to have been udden for the highest leadership of the country which at that time vss wholly concentrated in the hands of Dramatic Demonstration The conflict between the army newspaper and the Defense Minis try magazine was the most dra matic demonstration yet of the ferment and confusion set off by the campaign of the present So viet leadership to downgrade Stal in and rewrite the history oJ World War II Some Western observers specu lated that the Military Heralds charges had been circulated too widely and had to be countered shortly and sharply To others it appeared to be a case of serious second thoughts on how far down the Communist hierarchy the blame for Russias unprepared ness would descend Red Stars article commemor ating the llth anniversary of VE took a positive attitude to ward the Soviet Unions prepared ness for World War II The Central Committee of the Communist Party and the Sovie government reckoned with the possibility long before the war started that Fascist Germany sooner or later would attack the Soviet the army paper said No Defense Observers outside the Iron Cur tain noted with interest that the article did not defend Stalin by name but rather the party Centra Committee and the Soviet govern ment Although Stalin actually dominated both at the time of the war by defending the organiza tion instead of the dictator the army paper remained in line with the Kremlins current emphasis on collective Contradiction of one of his service publications by another was not regarded as any down

the states precincts counted had votes or 38 per cent No Opposition He had no opposition on the Democratic side He had hoped o pull down at least 41 per cent of the total percentage Adlai E Stevenson got in losing o Eisenhower in 1952 The Indiana vote was unusually ight even though real contests were lacking Democrats had hoped for an indication of farm resentment of administration poli cies but no such signals appeared Gov George Craig a Republi can saw it this way It was not only a defeat for Kefauver but for the entire Demo cratic party It is no secret that he Democrats were attempting o poll a big vote as a re buke to the President and to pro vide propaganda that Eisenhower is weak in the farm areas They failed miserably because the voters knew the charges wjere false The farmers did not storm to the polls in response to the urgings of Kefauver and Demo cratic State Chairman Charles E No Indication Skillen took this view The vote for Kefauver is no indication whatever of the No vember He said Demo crats didnt try to turn out a big vote and that many farmers chose to work instead of vote be cause of warm sunny weather The state Democratic organiza tion is regarded as more friendly to Adlai Stevenson than Kefauver for the party presidential nomina tion Writein voting was prohibited but Indianians were free to vote in either the Democratic or Re publican primaries regardless of their registration Eisenhower also collected 32 firstballot votes in the GOP Na tional Convention and Kefauver got 26 Democratic votes Hoosiers can vote as they please after the first
