turning the government over to men who work fulltime for the wrong peo ple and for a limited group of people And the plain truth is that this situation would get worse not better in a continuation of this administration because what in fluence the President has with his party in Congress has depended on his running again Heir Apparent But from here on the future of Republican leaders will depend not on Eisenhower but the Re publican heir apparent Mr Nix Stevensons arena audience booed Nixons name lustily And the vice said Stevenson seems to sail down wind no matter which way the wind

farm prices set up TVA and REA protected inves tors through the securities com mission and consumers through the Federal Trade Commission and lifted the nation from the rubble of bankruptcy and despair to a great plateau of Some Gains Stevenson conceded that during the 28 years of Repulican lead ership there were to be sure some accomplishments that must not be dismissed But they dont even compare with these I have he declared And thats why I say that to get things done America will once again turn to Demo cratic In Washington Republican Na tional Chairman Leonard Hall said Stevenson

this type where GOP leaders tended to shy away from frank and open discussion of the problems ahead these folks were ready to admit they have a job ahead They willingly concede that two main issues upon which the election might turn in Iowa are farm prices and taxes They arent however willing to con cede any gains to the opposition Hog Prices Many farmers before the meetings started indicated that the price of hogs in November well might determine the out come of the fall campaign Don Pierson state chairman accused the Democrats of mis informing the public He quoted them as saying that Iowa has gone overboard on state spend But he reminded the Democrat state legislators voted solidly for appropriations and solidly against taxes to pay for those Last year he declared 26 states increased state spending to a degree greater than Iowa and 18 of them were controlled by Tax Increase Iowa per capita tax increase from 1950 through Pierson reported was less than the na tional average and less than that of most other The enthusiasm of the meeting prompted Pierson to predict it as a kickoff for a great victory this Another party county leader wasnt quite so enthusiastic but
