Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Thundersriowers No Important Temperature Change Buy Your Steamboat Days Button Now VOLUME 52, NO. 108 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 23, 1952 EIGHTEEN PAGES Car Rams Train at Nelson; I Dead TODAY Ike Just Beginning To Hit Pace By JOSEPH AND STEWART ALSOP WASHINGTON The real story behind Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhow- er's Abilene speech casts a lot of light on a problem that has been puzzling a lot of people. To be blunt about it, a lot of people are asking, "What's hap- pened to In the days before he became a Presidential candi- date, the Eisenhower magic was singularly reliable. Almost every- thing he did electrically conveyed an impression of major a personality large and forceful, warm and sincere. But now the magic works only about 80 per cent of the time: and it has been particularly absent when it was most needed, in the big, important televised speeches. The story of the Abilene speech tells why. Both the general and his coalition of political managers saw that this opening gun of his personal campaign might all but win the battle. Eisenhower envi- sioned it mainly as an expression of his own beliefs about America. He worked long and alone on the first draft, to get his real feelings into the speech. Not Witty or Original This is, of course, the inner es- sence of the Eisenhower magic. He is not witty. He is not remarkably original. His views are the views of an average, common-sensible intelligent man. What makes him big is simply his deep, genuine be- lief in the vital, simple things, and what makes people respond and warm to him is his power to pro- ject this deep belief. No one who has seen the first draft for Abi- lene, which Eisenhower sent to this country for criticism, can doubt that it. contained this essence of the Eisenhower magic. As a speech, this first draft was not perfect, to be sure. It was top long. As a concession to the poli- tical character of the occasion, it included too much rather thread- bare verbiage on such standard topics as the virtues of a balanced budget and the evils of bureau- cracy. Yet the emotions of the man also came through, almost poeti- cally, as when lie spoke of the founding fathers' struggling to 500 U. S.

Every Allied plane return- Woman Killed At La Crosse tunity "out of the brambles of men's passions and prejudices, nut of the wilderness of nature." And satisfyingly often the speech rose to an elevated note, far above the alternate mumbling and shrill- j ness that characterizes most poli- j tical oratory. Take, for example, his short statement of the spiritual j origin of political liberty: Freedom Is of the Spirit "You cannot hold freedom in your hand, any more than you can j hold the soul of a man or a nation, j Freedom is of the spirit, and only by the spirit of men can it be effectively maintained." This was the way to get across the true image of Eisenhower as a national leader. And at Abilene, it' was far more needful to get across this personal image to the waiting nation than to deal with specific political issues which would be left until later. Unfortunately, this need was not 1 Granite in Waushara County. grasped when Gen. Lucius D. Clay transmitted Eisenhower's first draft to the ehieftnins of the Eisen- hower coalition. These men, after all, are seasoned politicians. Every seasoned politician has his own notion of the right kind of speech, which is, inevitably, the kind of speech he makes himself. By the same token, the virtues of the first draft for Abilene lay precisely in the patches where it least resem- service. ed safely, the Air Force said Lt. Gen. Glenn 0.

And he called Inland Steel Pres- ident Clarence Randall a "liar" for saying that Murray and Tru- man had "made a deal." Murray addressed an audience of at a steelworkers rally in this city of About persons in Gary and adjoining East Chicago earn their liveli- hood in the steel mills. No Fear of T-H The steelworkers' head said President Truman told him: "If you will voluntarily agree to suspension of the strike I bc- ieve you need have no fear of the courts imposing on your members he so-called Taft-Hartley injunc- tion procedure." The strike was postponed, gov- j crnment seizure followed, and steelworkers stayed on the job un- til after adverse court decisions on the seizure. Steelworkers have been on strike three weeks, since the U. S. Su- preme Court ruled government seizure of the industry illegal. President Truman has not started Taft-Hartley Act injunction pro- ceedings to .stop -it. A resolution urging him to do so has passed the Senate.

"There are all shades of politi- cal opinion represented among the credentials members who already have been Taft told a re- porter.

Officer Zeichert said that the ac- jcident occurred at about a.m. I Sunday when Haack, apparently en route to Lake City, drove into j the side of a flat car of a north- j bound Milwaukee Road freight train at the crossing almost mid- way between here and Pepin. This is on the Chippewa Valley branch. All three occupants of the car were in the front seat at the time of the crash. Haack was hurled out of the automobile by the im- pact and was pinned beneath the wreckage when the car rolled over on its side. Lying Beneath Car The Goodhue farmer was lying, dead, beneath the rear end of the car when the first persons arrived at the scene a few minutes after the accident. Mrs. Elms and Binder, meanwhile, were trapped in- side the twisted wreckage of the car and an acetylene torch was required to cut away a portion of the car body to free them from the wreckage. Binder was unconscious when rescuers arrived. Mrs. Elms was :onscious, however, when an am- Dulance arrived to take her and Binder to the Wabasha hospital. Officer Zeichert said that his in- vestigation indicated that the car was traveling east on Highway 35 j when it ran into the train. f Tire marks on the pavement [showed that the car skidded ap- Ike Denies Truman Offered Nomination By BILL BECKER DENVER Truman never offered Gen.

It is a mark of Eisenhower's strength of character that he quick- ly sensed something had gone wrong and insisted, at Detroit, on being himself. But the question and answer method adopted for the Detroit speech, although far better than the careful contriving of the speech at Abilene, still fail- ed to project Eisenhower's real largeness and strength. Search Fails For Lost Pair LANCASTER, Wis. tft-A posse of 50 woodsmen and three air- planes searched rough timber country in Grants County yester- day without success in the search for Mr. and Mrs, Nagle Humble of Danville, 111. The couple has been missing since June 12 when they took off from the Albert Lea, Minn., airport en route home.
