Addressing a campaign "kickoff" dinner in his home town here Mon- day night, Anderson said relief should be provided for taxpayers because a great surplus has ac- cumulated in the fund from that levy. He advocated that credit for a married person be increased from to and for a single person from to The governor told his dinner aud- ience of some 500 guests that the state could save money by erecting a new state office building. He pointed out that agencies forced to seek quarters other than in the capital or the present state office building were paying a total of yearly in rent. "One conclusion I have made in my ten months as governor is a principle that I shall adhere to as long as I hold the Ander- son said. "That is that we need less government in business and more business in government. "My conduct of office so far has been based on what I believe is good business practice and com- mon sense rather than on political opportunity."

The department previously had designated all of Maine, Massa- chusetts, North and South Caro- lina, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennes- see, Alabama, Mississippi and Ar- kansas, and parts of Missouri as drought disaster areas. Some Recovery Should weather conditions more favorable during the rest of the season, drought-affected states might well achieve a degree of recovery. The department said rains early this month have tended to break the drought and should revive pastures and encourage farmers to plant late forage crops for fall grazing and winter hay. Winter wheat and rice are the only crops for which record out- turns are now expected. But the production of corn, all wheat, cot- ton, soybeans, tobacco, sugarcane, New Highway Dept.

AEC to Build Huge Atomic Plant in Ohio WASHINGTON Iff! The Atomic Energy Commission announced to- day it will build a giant new atomic plant in Southern Ohio to step up this nation's supply of strategic U-235. The plant, which will cost 000, will be situated in Pike County, in the Ohio River Valley, about 20 miles north of Portsmouth. U-235- will be separated from uranium ore at the plant through the gaseous diffusion process. High- ly fissionable U-235 is a key pro- duct in atomic bombs and in atomic engines. The Ohio plant is to be part of a 3 billion dollar expansion pro- gram approved by Congress last month. The commission said it will cre- ate no new community in connec- tion wi'h the Pike County plant, as it did at Oak Ridge, Tenn. The com- mission's policy for the past two years, has been to avoid such gov- ernment communities as was built at Oak Ridge. The new plant will be located on a acre tract in a sparsely- settled area of Pike County. The commission had been studying Ohio River Valley sites for some time. AEC Chairman Gordon Dean has said the new program, of which the Ohio plant is a part, will "gain precious time" by reaching mini- mum defense goals for atomic pro- ducts 4V4 to 5 years earlier than the goals would be reached at present rates of production. The new plant is considered im- portant in the AEC's big expansion program for which Congress voted t i funds in the closing days of its re- session. AEC has said between and persons will be employed at the Ohio plant, which will be com- pleted in three or four years. Some workers will be needed on the construction job.

Eisenhower says "the outlook is not too bright" for a durable world peace unless Americans gain a thorough understanding of the com- plex problems involved. The Republican nominee told a news conference late yester- day he'll touch on the subject in every campaign speech. "The great subject of peace and how to obtain the general de- clared, "overshadows all other sub- jects because it.affects all others." But efforts of newsmen to draw out details of Eisenhower's cam- paign plans got nowhere. The GOP standard bearer did say he ex- pects to speak in Philadelphia but that no date has been set. He repeated he will campaign in traditionally Democratic Dixie. And, in response to a question, he said no speech yet has been sched- uled for Labor Day. To Complete Plans He indicated, however, that plans may be completed after a current round of conferences. Yesterday he met with Southern backers and with Republican farm leaders in Congress. Last night, Arthur E. Summerfield, national GOP chairman, flew in with what aides said was a proposed itinerary for the next 30 days. Harold Stassen, who campaigned unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination, is scheduled to arrive tonight and to have lunch tomor- row with Eisenhower. One of those on the appoint- ments, list- today was Allen Kline, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Newsmen questioned Eisenhower about his conference with eight members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees. "We found ourselves in very general the general declared. He added that a statement issued by the law-makers would speak for him, saying, "I'm not stating in advance of the campaign my own particular ideas." The congressmen said in their statement tnat Eisenhower "is go- ing to present forward- looking farm polices." They also outlined no specific farm policy. One, however, Sen. Milton R. Young said Eisenhower told them he favors continuing some form of price supports for farm products. For peace, Eisenhower declared the need is for "something posi- tive and constructive." The worlJ situation will, he added, "deteri- orate without a positive approach." The general said, "I'm not going to put myself in a position of being a messiah but I think the Republi- can party can do the better job." He called for "a fresh new ap- proach to the whole problem" and said that is one reason "for chang- ing the whole works" of the na- tional administration. He stressed that he wants to build the Republican party but said that on November election bal- lots "Democratic X's make just as big marks as any others." A final decision on how exten- sive his campaign will be in the South will be made after current studies of the situation are com- pleted, he declared. Eisenhower reported that the Southerners who met with him "don't think we're just going to the South. But they all had the impression we have a fighting chance." John Minor Wisdom, national GOP committeeman from Louisi- ana, said Eisenhower's best chance is to take Texas with a good possi- bility the general may win Florida, Virginia and Louisiana. Newspaperman Meets His Mark MIAMI, Fla.

Talks Expected To Cover Issues, Campaign Plans Conflict Over Labor Day Speech May Be Settled By JACK BELL WASHINGTON Adlai E. Stevenson came here today for a big political pow-wow with Presi- dent Truman and his Cabinet on issues and strategy of the presi- dential campaign. A series of talks at the White House, running into the late, after- noon, was expected to frame the basic pattern for the Democratic effort to put Stevenson into the presidency. One decision of high moment may be on the campaign role of Truman as a retiring President who wants the reins of government to pass to Stevenson. Whistle-Stop Itch Truman has shown signs of itch- ing to hit the road against the Re- publicans with "give 'em heE" speeches of the kind he delivered in his own 1948 campaign. But Stevenson and his advisers are reported desiring that Truman take a less vocal part and play a muted second fiddle to Stevenson. Reporters tried to interview Stevenson when he landed at the airport and as a police escort led him through the crowd to a White House car. Most of the questions and ans- wers were" lost in the confusion, but in reply to one query Steven- i son said he regards his chances of 'beating GOP Nominee Dwight D. Eisenhower as "pretty good." Stevenson was accompanied by a staff of advisers, including his campaign manager, Wilson Wyatt. Unless all the outward signs fail, the Illinois governor probably will tell Truman he will be glad to have his help.' But Stevenson is expected to make it plain he wants no presidential whistle-stop tours overshadowing his own efforts as the nominee to get his views across to the people. One issue that may be settled is a conflict in Labor Day speak- ing plans for the two. William Flannigan, Stevenson's disclosed yester- and then stalled.

This official said he is suggesting tures and crops, including cotton. Cooler weather covered the upper Great Lakes, the middle and upper Mississippi Valleys and most of the Plains states.

Sen. James Murray of Montana said he believes Truman could help Stevenson with a public power speech in the West. Full Co-operation President is popular in our country and it would be a mistake if he doesn't campaign for Steven- Murray said. "He doesn't have to undertake a whistle-stop campaign but he ought to give his fullest co-operation to the nom- inee." Some Republicans have been contending that Stevenson is the "captive candidate" of the Truman administration, but Sen. Ralph E. Flanders (R-Vt) told a reporter he takes no stock in that. Flanders, who is supporting the GOP nominee. Gen. Dwight D. Ei- senhower, said he regards Steven- son as "a damn good but added he will have to fight for the right to run his own political show. "in my Flanders said, "Stevenson quite obviously is embarrassed by efforts of the President to grab hold of his coat- tails and also do the steering." Sen. John J. Sparkman of Ala- bama, the Democratic vice presi- dential nominee, told reporters: "Gov. Stevenson is his own man. He won't be anybody's captive." Sparkman said he believed the question of whether Truman should make a free-hitting whistle-stop campaign tour was a matter for Stevenson and the President to settle between them. Sparkman in- sisted he knows of no friction or embarrassment surrounding the question and that he expects none.- "Gov. Stevenson will call the sig- nals for his own Spark- man added.
