Fair Tonight And Tuesday, Temperature Same Tuesday Last Day to Register For Sept. 9 Primary VOLUME 52, NO. 155 SIX-CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 18, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES TODAY McCarthy Problem For Ike By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON anguished comes from Denver that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's toughest campaign problem has split the Republican High Com- mand right down the middle. The divisive problem is what to do about Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin, Sen. William Jenner of Indiana and the other Republi- cans of their peculiar ilk. Originally Gen. Eisenhower planned to solve this problem by a compromise. He would make a major speech, early in the cam- paign, simultaneously denouncing softness toward Communism in the administration and character as- sassination and smear tactics any- where, including his own party. He w.ould then refrain from visiting Indiana or Wisconsin, and would thus avoid sharing a platform with either McCarthy or Jenner, the twin masters of the modern politi- cal smear. This compromise plan has now been upset by heavy pressure from the Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio and Illinois Republican organizations, seconded by Arthur Summer- field, Chairman of the Republi- can National Committee. Gen. Eis- enhower's speaking schedule al- ready calls for a major appear- ance in Indiana in the second week of September; while an appear ance in Wisconsin is being consid ered for. later in the month. The official word is being passed out that the general will endorse all Republican candidates in these states, including Jenner and Me Carthy. Test Cases McCarthy and Jenner are test cases for a very special reason. A good many other Republican senatorial and congressional can- didates have persistently and ve- nomously attacked almost every- thing Gen. Eisenhower stands for. But McCarthy and Jenner have an unusual distinction. They have publicly described. Gen. George C. Marshall as a traitor to the United States. Jenner has told the Senate that Marshall was "a liv- ing "a front man for traitors" and a "co-conspirator of treason." In his famous Senate speech against Marshall, McCarthy whol- ly surpassed Jenner. As everyone knows, Gen. Mar- shall stood almost in a father's re- lationship to Gen. Eisenhower, from the humble beginnings to the splendid climax of Gen. Eisenhow- er's military career. The forego- ing gems of modern American elo- quence, taken together with Eis- enhower's relationship to Mar- shall, explain Eisenhower's reluct- ance to offer Jenner and McCar- thy a ride on his coat tails. The arguments that are being used to break down that reluctance amount Reds to Step Up Far East War Ike to Invade South Before Kasson Talk By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH DENVER Dwight D. Eisenhower, planning a flying foray into the traditionally Democratic South, reportedly is convinced he can swing some Southern states to the Republican column in the November presidential election.

(AP Wire- photo) Kaiser Accuses Saboteurs of seven Southern states. The Dixie campaign tour un- precedented for a Republican pres- idential candidate is scheduled tentatively to start Sept. 2, the day after Labor Day. Eisenhower is planning to fly south from New York and spend two or days in a whirlwind in- vasion of Democratic strongholds. The decision to campaign in the South was made after the general conferred here' a week ago with an eight-state delegation of Dixie supporters. GOP Has Chance They reportedly convinced him the Republicans have a chance to crack the Solid South for the first time since Hoover did campaigning there. Eisenhower's projected Southern swing by plane will be a departure from the traditional whistle-stop campaigning by train. However, he will turn later to that type of travel. Eisenhower aides planning the Dixie trip say privately it is likely the general will speak in: Richmond, Va.; Atlanta, Ga.; Birmingham, Ala.; Miami and Jacksonville Fla.; New Orleans, La.; Dallas, Ft. Worth and Hous- ton, Tex., and Memphis, Term. The Birmingham speech will take him into the home state of the Democratic vice presidential nominee, Sen. John J. Sparkman. And the tentative plans for visit- ing three Texas cities underscore the Eisenhower camp's optimism about carrying his native state. j Speeches in several of the South- j ern cities will be at the airports. Additional cities with airports able] to accommodate the big DC3 plane in which the general will travel may be put on the itinerary later. Present plans call for an over- night stop in Miami, either Sept. 2 or 3. Plans for the Southern tour j came to light after an announce- ment over the weekend that Eisen- hower will make a major cam- paign address on world peace in Philadelphia Sept. 4. It will be carried nationally on television and radio. At Kasson Sept. 6 Arthur E.

Adlai Stevenson and his nine- member strategy board have sketched in broad outline these tac- tics for the Democratic presiden- tial year campaign: Major speaking tours by Steven- son, traveling by train and air- plane, geared for the most part to a television time table. A country-wide speaking barrage by a team of 100 Democratic Sena- tors, representatives, governors and other party leaders. The tecHnique of the 1952 cam- paign, said Sen.

Loss Feared la particular, the Indiana, Wis- consin, Illinois and Ohio leaders have been threatening the general with losing their states, unless he campaigns as a "real Republican." To do this, they say, he must era- brace all other Republicans, in- cluding even McCarthy and Jen- ner. The general may well be sus- ceptible to this sort of pressure, but only because of his political in- experience. -.If he were more ex- perienced, he would know the men who are now pressuring him are the same ones who charged Gov. discovered a half hour before race time yesterday.

A hunt for fingerprints was started. Details Worked Out Plans, perhaps in greater detail than announced, were worked out in weekend conferences between Stevenson and his strategy board. Stevenson planned to begin a brief vacation Tuesday at Minoc- qua, Wis. When he returns to his desk and indications were he will con- tinue to occupy the governor's chair while campaigning for the presidency Stevenson faces this rigorous schedule: Aug. 27-28 A series of speeches and appearances before the Amer- ican Legion Convention, Legion Auxiliary meeting, New Yorjc State Democratic Convention, New York Liberal Party Convention in New York City, and a New Jersey Democratic convention. Sept. 1 The campaign "kick- off" speech at Detroit, coinciding with President Truman's opening campaign speech for Stevenson at Milwaukee. Trip to West Coast A few days later his first cam- paign trip, to California, Oregon and Washington, and possibly in- cluding the Southwest, will begin. A plane tour of major Southern cities will be made a bit later. Stevenson cited Saturday his own record as governor of Illinois record questioned by Sen. Everett R. Dirksen, Illinois Repub- lican as the best answer to whether he can "clean up the mess in Washington" if he is elected president. The Illinois governor implied that he would use "ruthless objectivity" ing Contest at Kasson, Minn., jn cleaning house, in a letter to Sept. 6. On Sept. 9 there will be another major address by the general in Indianapolis. He will travel by air in filling all, of those engagements. Along about Sept. 15 he probably will set out by train on a whistle-stop swing around the country. On Wednesday he will fly to Boise, Idaho, for a campaign con- ference with the Republican gov- ernors of 10 Western states.

Did Not Help Dewey The Indiana, Illinois and Ohio organizations went all out for their local candidates, and they did not lift a finger for Dewey. The in- ference is plain, that in these states Dewey was dragged down by the unappetizing persons on the ticket with him. Add the fact that embracing Sens. McCarthy and Jenner will cost Gen. Eisenhower just about the whole huge inde- pendent vote of the West and East Coasts. The course of political wis- dom then clearly seems to coin- cide with Gen. Eisenhower's na- tural inclination. Such, at any rate, are the argu- ments now being made by Sen. James Duff of Pennsylvania and other leading Republicans who want Gen. Eisenhower to "run as Dwight D. Eisenhower and nobody else."

His letter appeared to accept as fact that there is a "mess" in the na- tion's capital. A Presbyterian minister who is a personal friend of- Stevenson, de- clared from his pulpit in Spring- field Sunday that Sen. Dirksen told a "blatant lie" when Dirksen said recently that Stevenson was "the worst governor we've had since the turn of the century" in Illinois. In his sermon, Rev. Richard Paul Graebel identified the speaker of the "lie" only as a United States senator who is also "an Elder of the Presbyterian Church." But he told reporters later he meant Dirksen. Stevenson was in church to hear the sermon. Termed Irresponsible Graebel called Dirksen "one of the most irresponsible men in the Senate and his own party." Dirksen could not be reached for comment, Stevenson's letter was in answer to one from Editor Humphrey noti- fying the governor that the Oregon Journal was supporting him. Hum- phrey had asked Stevenson ques- tions on various subjects and the governor's reply was published. As to the Stevenson wrote "I can only give my best, with ruthless objectivity, as I have done here, to the pain of the politicians, the gamblers and the businessmen who liked it the old way." Stevenson said he received the nomination "without commitments to anyone about anything in- cluding President Truman."

Soviet-Chinese Partnership to Be Strengthened Additional Help From Russians Sought by China By ARTHUR GAVSHON LONDON diplomats expressed the view today Russia and Red China may be planning to apply more pressure against the Allies in Korea, Indochina and Japan. Moscow radio quoted Chinese Prime Minister Chou En-Lai as saying he will call for more credit, goods and arms to supplement the 300 million dollar five-year loan granted by Russia two years ago. Additionally, Russian help may be enlisted to rebuild the indus- armament-producing potential of Manchuria in view of the heavy drain imposed on the Chinese by the Korean war. Fulfillment of two other 1950 agreements between Russia and Red China are expected to follow the Moscow talks. The first bound Russia to quit the Port Arthur naval base in Manchuria by the end of this year. The second bound Russia to hand over the Changchun railroads to China, also by the end of the year, British Prime Minister Churchill have been predicting privately for some time that a general switch of Red pres- sures is taking place from Europe to the Far East and particularly to Japan. Plan to Tighten Military Alliance By THOMAS P. WHITNEY MOSCOW UPl Chinese Premier Chou En-lai and Kremlin leaders prepared today for major talks aimed at tightening the military, economic and'political ties of the Chinese-Soviet Communist partner- ship. The Premier, who is also Red China's foreign minister, flew to Moscow yesterday from Peiping with a big delegation that included his deputy premier, Chen Yung, and a sizable group of military I experts. The nature of the top-level dis- cussions between the world's big- gest Communist nations was kept secret. It was evident, however, that military questions would rank high among those taken up since Chou brought along the deputy chief of Peiping's general staff, Su Yui: his Air Force commander, Lyu jYa-Jow; Deputy Navy Commander Lo Shun Chu. and Deputy Com- mander of Artillery Tsu Chuan. Closer Ties Sought Judging by others in the party, closer economic bonds will be sought also in the talks. Economic specialists with Chou included Min- ister of Heavy Industry Wan Hao- shou, Minister of Fuel Chen Yui, Deputy Minister of Communica- tions Wang Cheng. Deputy Minis- ter of Machine Building Wang Tao- han and economic expert Li Fu- ghung.

Milk Hike Expected In Minneapolis MINNEAPOLIS W price of home-delivered mijk in the Min- neapolis area is expected to go up By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Minnesota Republican leaders today w-ere preparing "a terrific" welcome for their party's top man Dwight D. when he flies into the state Sept. 6. Meantime, with the state pri- mary election less than a month off, campaigning stepped up for the state offices. The general speaks about noon Sept. 6 to farmers and others at- tending the National Soil Conser- vation Day and Plow Matches near Kasson, in the southeastern part of the state. Henry Snow Farm P.

The platform is to be erected in a natural amphi- theater that covers about 18 acres.

The Chinese got a full red-car- pet reception by top Soviet leaders at the the high importance the Russian govern- ment attaches to the conference. Replying to the official welcome, Chou paid tribute to the "brother- ly and unselfish aid" which China is receiving from the Soviet Union and said he had come to strengthen co-operation between the two coun- tries even further. Chou's last conference in Mos- cow, in January, 1950, preceded the Korean War by six months. May Broaden Pact It appeared certain the new talks will aim at expanding collab- oration within the scope of the 1950 Soviet-Chinese Friendship and Mutual Aid Pact, the formal basis of the two countries' present close relationship. It is expected an at- tempt will be made also to broaden the pact and augment it with ad- ditional agreements. The Chinese are almost certain to ask for aft increase in their 300-million-dollar credit for the purchase of Russian Industrial transport and agricultural equip- ment and for more Soviet techni- cal aid. They will likely seek also expansion of Soviet-Chinese trade to counter the West's partial block- ade of China. Clauses of the 1950 agreement providing for Russia to return the Port Arthur naval base and Man- churian-Railway to China are due for discussion since the agree- ments were to be implemented ei- ther when the Japanese peace was concluded or by the end of 1952, whichever was earlier. It is thought here that a Chinese request for the return of the base and railway will bring a sympa- thetic Soviet response.
