Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Cloudy, Windy, Cooler Tonight And Thursday National Newspaper Week VOLUME 52, NO. 192 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 1, 1952 TWENTY-FOUR PAGES Mankato, New (Jim Vote For City Manager Plan By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Mankato and New Ulm are to have city manager forms of government, effective next Jan. 1 Voters in special elections in both communities Tuesday vot- ed the change from their pres- ent commissions. Election of the altered councils will be held in connection with the Nov. 4 general election, with successful candidates taking office on the first of the year. Ordinarily, municipal balloting would have been carried out in April. Mankato voted to for the change and New Ulm to 694. In both cases, man- agers will be named after the new council takes office. Under the new setup, Man- kato will have a mayor and six councilmen, with the mayor drawing yearly and the aldermen serving without pay. TODAY Missouri Situation Muddled By STEWART ALSOP ST. LOUIS It is amusing, and sometimes rather revealing, to try in the imagination to explain an American political situation, like that here in Missouri, to a Euro- pean visitor. W. Stuart Symington, formerly President Truman's secretary of the Air Force, is the Democratic candidate for the Senate here. He won the nomination over the public opposition of the President. of course, Mr. Syming- ton is opposing the Truman ad- "No, certainly not. You're getting it all Symington is a close friend of the Republican candidate for Pres- ident, 'Dwight D. Eisenhower. He deeply admires Eisenhower, and has consistently supported the in. ternational policies for which Eis- enhower stands. naturally Mr. Symington wishes that Gen. Eisenhower will be "Heavens no. He is strongly supporting Eisenhower's opponent, Gov. Adlai Confusion Throughout his Senate service, the Republican incumbent. Sen. James P. Kem, has bitterly and consistently opposed just about ev- erything Gen. Eisenhower stands for. Kem even voted against the North Atlantic Treaty. one assumes, Kem is opposing Eisenhower and Eisen- hower is opposing "Don't be silly. When Eisenhower was in St. Louis some days ago, he round- ly endorsed Sen. Kem, and Sen. Kem is, as we say in this country, hanging onto Eisenhower's coat- tails for dear At this point, the imaginary Eur- open visitor is presumably cross- eyed with confusion, yet the situa- tion described above (which is of course perfectly clear and simple to any American) is nevertheless interesting, in that it is typical of a peculiar phenomenon of this campaign. Like a number of other Republican candidates of the fam- ous "class of 1946" (Sen. William Jenner of Indiana, for example, or Harry Cain of Washington) Sen. Kern's hopes of re-election are squarely based on two premises. Ike Popular The first is that the immensely popular Eisenhower will sweep the country, and sweep Kem back into the Senate in the process. Kem is therefore seizing every possible opportunity to identify himself with whom, of course, he has virtually nothing in com- mon. The second premise is that the voters can also be rendered cross- eyed with confusion, so that they will conveniently forget Kern's vot- ing record. Kem has therefore at- tacked Symington on so many fronts that the unfortunate Sym- ington, who has never before had first-hand experience of an elec- tion, sometimes seems a trifle punch-drunk. One can hardly blame him. It must be an unpleasant experience for a man of hitherto distinguished reputation to find himself simul- taneously pictured as a blood-soak- ed war profiteer, a "golf-playing crcny of and the chosen agent of British interna- tional bankers. These three charges against Symington provide typical examples of a political technique which is now widely practiced. The object of this tech- nique is simply to confuse the vot- ers, to raise "the big doubt" in their minds. Symington sold his stock in the Emerson Electric Company, of which he had been president, when he entered public office. He did so in order to avoid charges of favoring his old company. But the stock had increased in value during Symington's term as president of the company and so Symington is a war profiteer. Symington is a crony of Corn- chosen instrument to "punish" (Continued on Page IT, Column ALSOP At present, the mayor is paid per month and the four councilmen S50 each.

Eisenhower Adlai Doubts GOP Could Rout All Communists Claims Stand Of Republicans Is 'Ludicrous' SPRINGFIELD, 111. Ad- ilai E. Stevenson bore down on the Communists-in-government is- sues today with a stand that the GOP is making a "ludicrous" claim it could easily end Red pen- jetration of federal agencies. 1 The Democratic presidential nominee and his staff intensified, too, efforts to win over indepen- dent and other voters through a nation-wide organization of volun- teers for Stevenson. Some 200 leaders of volunteer units from 37 states assembled here today for a major political rally. Stevenson could find time only for a brief reception for them to- night at the gubernatorial mansion. The Illinois governor was busy, among other things, on a speech for next week to be built almost entirely on the explosive Commu- nist issue. At the same time, he took steps to head off any exploitation by his Republican rival, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, of Gen. Walter Bedell Smith's statement that Smith believes, or at least operates on the assumption, there are Com- munists even in the hush-hush Cen- tral Intelligence Agency. Smith is chief .of the intelligence agency. Republicans seized on Smith's original statement, that he be- lieves all security agencies in- cluding the CIA have been infil- trated, in support of their con- tention that the present adminis- tration has been lax in going after Reds in government. The head of the CIA made his statement in a legal proceeding in Washington, Eisenhower at first was reported to be injecting the question of Communist penetration of the in- telligence agency into a speech for a Midwestern campaign tour start- ing today. But later a spokesman on the general's campaign train said Ei- senhower would do nothing to en-1 danger the security of this country or the CIA, although he intends to keep on hitting subversives in I government. And a spokesman for the Re- publican National Committee said in Washington that neither the committee nor Eisenhower intends to make a "political football" of the Smith statements. Smith backed down a bit from his original statement. He got out another to the effect that what he really meant to say was that any intelligence agency must be on Bums Trim Yanks In Opener, 4 to 2 This It Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, N.

They cheered his attacks on President Truman and the Democratic presidential nom- inee, Adlai Stevenson, and his bold bid for the state's support.

Go Ahead on Robinson and Snider Homers BROOKLYN The Brooklyn Dodgers won the first game of the 1952 World Series from the world champion New York Yankees to- day, 4-2. Play-by-play details of the first series game follow: FIRST INNING YANKEES Joe Black hurled the first pitch of the 1952 World Series, to lead- off batter Bauer, who raised a soft liner to Pafko in straight left. Pafko moved to his left to gather in Rizzuto's fly in left-center. Mantle, swinging at a 3-2 pitch, popped to Reese at the edge of the outfield grass. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left.
