Fair Tonight And Saturday, Cooler Tonight NINETY-EIGHTH YEAR. NO. 6 Good fellows Start Drive to Clothe 800 Needy Children HE 1953 Winona Goodfellows campaign begins today. Every year at this time the Goodfellows workers ask for money contributions to outfit Wiiiona's needy children with new articles of clothing-the things thev must have to keep warm and dry this winter. "The like new underwear, stocK- inqs shots, overshoes, caps, mittens, coats and snow- suits-are fitted right on the children in Winona cloth-, in" stores. The clothes are practical, durable and warm-in some cases the only gifts ihe child receives for Christmas. To give these underprivileged youngsters a Christmas is the objective of the Goodfellows. Last year the Goodfellovys raised Since that sum had to be apportioned among nearly 800 children, they received only the articles they needed most This year it is estimated that between 800 and 900 boys and girls will need Good- fellows help. This estimate was determined from a file containing the names, ages and addresses of Winona's underprivileged children, prepared by the Winona Council of Social Agencies. The names were obtained from Winona's public and parochial school teachers, city and county welfare departments and the Winona organizations which oo welfare work at Christmas time. The Council's Christmas list was formed to eliminate duplication of giving among these groups and to see that no reallv needs help is overlooked. All cases are investigated to deter- mine" whether or not a child is actually in need. When the Goodfellows put e warm coat on a youngster s back, sturdy shoes on his feet and overshoes for protection, they know the child it on his way to a healthier, merrier Christmas For 42 Goodfellows have been a part of the Winona Christmas spirit.

McCarthy's brilliant per- formance in its own of course, a blunt warning to Presi- dent Eisenhower and his Adminis- tration. According to the almost universal interpretation in Wash- ington McCarthy said in effect: "Play the game my way or else." Before the McCarthy perform- ance, Attorney General Brownell's charge against ex-President Tru- man was widely hailed in anti- McCarthy circles of the Eisenhow- er administration as a master stroke on the theory that "it cut the ground right out from under Joe." This theory now looks a trifle wobbly, to say the least. The fact is that Brownell, in one fatal sentence, opened up the Administration to precisely the sort of brilliant, oblique attack which McCarthy has now made upon it. Brownell' had an excellent case against the Truman administra- tion. Hade In the right place at the right time, it could have been a near-devastating case. But when Brownell said that Truman know- ingly appointed a "Russian he "fell into a trap. For he thus accepted the basic McCarthy pre- mise: That accusation equals proof of guilt. McCarthy Logic At the beginning of his speech, McCarthy twice paraphrased this Brownell' charge, accurately and with obvious relish. For when the McCarthy premise is accepted, the McCarthy brand of logic becomes almost unassailable. In 1E45 and nearly 1946, Harry Dexter White was a "Russian spy" chiefly on the world of the then wholly unknown female ex- Elizabeth Bentley. If such charges are to be taken as proof of guilt, the. logically, Brown- ell himself is wholly vulnerable to attack by McCarthy. As McCarthy pointed out, John Paton Davies is "still on the pa.y- roll after eleven months of the Eisenhower administration." Da- vies has been accused, not by an unknown witness like Miss Bent- Icy but by such distinguished ac- cusers and Sens. McCarthy and McCarran. Is not the failure of Brownell's Justice Department to indict Davies, as demanded by Mc- Carthy and McCarran. monstrous "laxity" and Mentions Vincenl Brownell knows that Davies, when he proposed that the Central Intelligence Agency hire certain pro-Communists, was simply sug- gesting the ancient double-agent intelligence technique. He knows that an indictment of the able Davies would almost certainly be thrown out on its ear by any court in the land. But what is Brownell to do? By the formula which he himself accepted. Davies is guilty because he has been accused. McCarthy, furthermore, mention- ed briefly "but with n certain lov- in; emphasis the ramp of John (Continued on Page 14, Column 4.)

Only rumor and speculation ever connected the two disappear- ances. As much of the story as anybody knows began in Browns- ville, Tex., weeks after the disap- pearances when Tqm and Betty decided to let their love flower in the lush Rio Grande Valley. Their plane to New Orleans was ground- ed there by bad weather. They moved here from Brownsville about five years ago. Tom, 28, proved not to be the ne'er-do-well a Tennessee Supreme Court branded him. He and 22- year-old Betty stayed in Texas and somewhere along the years as- sumed the names of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas D. Palmer.

Beall R-MD) charged today that some ides of Secretary of Agriculture enson have been "ghost writing" peeches unfairly attacking Ben- on's handling of farm problems. Beall told a reporter a quiet in- uiry is being made into what he aid is "good evidence" that some )emocratic holdover policy mak- rs in the Department of Agricul- ure have written such speeches nd slipped them to Democrats for elivery. These employes and others, Beall aid, also have supplied ideas and material to be worked into the exts of public addresses criticiz- ng Benson. He named no names, saying: "I do know it's being done. I hink Mr. Benson now knows it's aeen going on. There are dozen hese core of disloyalty." Benson was not reached immedi- itely for comment. Many Democrats and some Re- publicans in Congress, as well some farm leaders, have been lighly critical of Benson's handling of farm problems, principally the decline in farm income. "The public is entitled to a fair presentation of the facts of what Benson is trying to Beall said, "rather than half-true distortions prepared by skilled speech supposed to be interpreting and helping to implement farm pro- grams designed for the benefit of all." The senator said he became sus- picious when he read the texts speeches made "on the same day last summer in the Senate and similarity of their lan- guage struck me." He declined to name any sena- tor and representative who made such speeches, but he said he looked into the matter and "our information was that the material came from ghost writers at the Agriculture Department." Since then, he said, he has been told of instances where speeches were written in whole or in part by members of Benson's staff, for delivery by his critics. Others got critical material obtained from, these staff members, he said. He said instances included "planted" reports that the recent department reorganization would hurt farm aid programs and cause confusion among farmers, and that Benson's policies would im- poverish many farmers and per- haps cause a depression. Car Skids on Icy Pavement, Killing St. Olaf Student MONTEVIDEO, Minn m Tragedy climaxed a gay Thanks- giving trip for seven St. Olaf Col- lege students late Thursday when their car skidded on icy pavement and plunged into a steep ditch, killing one girl, a college home- coming princess.
