SMITH Robert A. Taft will tell Republicans in Ohio's three biggest cities this week the 'GOP can win the Nov. 4 election, but only by hard work. Last night he told a Young' GOP rally here the party "can't afford the overconfidence of 1948." The coming election is "the final he said, on "whether we are going to go ahead on the principles of the last 165 years or go so far toward socialization and government control that we can't turn back." The people realize the impor- tance of this election, Taft said, and "are more interested in pol- itics than thsy ever have been in the past." People Resent The senator said record voter registrations show "a determina- tion on the part of our people to rise up and eliminate from our government the socialization the people resent from the bottom of their hearts." But, Taft added, GOP party workers can profit from this in- terest only by hard labor and a not so much on "I like Ike" as on "I like Ike, Encouraged by the laughter of the whistle-stop crowds in North Dakota, Montana and Idaho, he pursued his course in Washington, where he tried out his anti-Eisen- hower technique in a major talk at Spokane last night. There, he told a crowd in the National Guard Armory he was "sorry to see the abject surrender" of the Republican presidential nominee "to the reactionary, vin- dictive wing of the Old Guard." Delayed by Yells Part of his Spokane speech was delayed by yells, whistles and cries of "give 'em hell, Harry" and "pour it on." Police Chief Clyde Phelps estimated his audience there at in the armory and said there were others who couldn't get in. The President brought a roar of laughter when he departed from his prepared text to give his com- ment on statements by Eisenhower and other Republicans that taxes can be reduced by slashing gov- ernment expenditures for national defense purposes. "It's just a damn he de- clared. Of the suggestion made by some of a fixed limit on spending for defense, he said, with acid in his voice: "That's the craziest thing I ever heard of." The police chief said there were persons who applauded and waved as Truman drove the eight blocks from his special train to Evelyn Green (left) and Annette Damianne rest their tired feet on a stairway leading to their ninth floor office in the Civic Opera building in Chicago. The girls had to walk up the stairs because of a strike of loop office building elevator operators. They made about half the climb, then had to rest on the stairway before finishing their walk.

People are interested. Conserva- tive estimates are that 3Vz million will vote in largest vote in history." Biddins for that vote on behalf of the Republican ticket which six months ago he was fighting to head, Taft speaks in Columbus to- night at a county GOP campaign opener and again tomorrow night. Monday he appears at his home city of Cincinnati. He campaigned in Ohio last week with Gen. Dwight D. Eisen- hower, who defeated him for the campaign, and he looked it as he strode through the 16-car special late yesterday, chatting amiably with reporters. His efforts to cut down on Eisen- hower's prestige as a candidate for president increased at every ap- pearance before a trainside crowd. The route today led through Eph- rata, Wenatchee, Skykomish and Everett, Wash., into Seattle for a talk there at 9 p.m., Eastern Stan- dard Time. Stalin said today a war between capitalistic countries is more prob- able than a war between capitalis- tic and socialistic (i. e., Com- munist) countries. Stalin said wars between the capitalistic nations of the world are inevitable. The Soviet leader made these statements in an article in the U.S. Rules Keep Clergyman From U.N.

Expressing His Views In expressing his views, Stalin said he was correcting the mis- takes of other Communists who be- lieved there was little likelihood of conflicts between capitalistic countries because the United States, as they stated it, had sub- jected them to satellite positions. The article by Stalin bore the title "Economic Problems of So- cialism in the USSR." The title is in line with the party view that the Soviet Union is in Socialist state of development, aiming to- ward the ultimate goal of Com- munism. Certain Comrades Stalin said: i "Certain comrades contend that Anglican Because new international con- 2 Hunters Die On Opening Day Of Duck Season Few Limits Reported by Early Nimrods By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two hunters died as Minnesota nimrods opened the annual duck season Wednesday with only mod- est bags reported. Kenneth Lang, 18, Richmond, Minn., was struck in the chest and killed by a charge from his own shotgun. Lang, with his brother. Ralph, was wading the edge of the Sauk j River, pulling a small boat. The mishap came when Kenneth grab- bed for the weapon as a flock of birds flew overhead. Ben Terhofter, 47, New Ulm, suffered a heart attack, fell from a duck boat and drowned in Swan Lake near that, city before his brother, William, could go to his aid. Dr. 0. B. Fesenmaier, Brown County coroner, said Terhofter ap- parently overexerted himself in paddling after a bird the brothers had downed. The victim was pro- nounced dead before the New Ulm fire department rescue squad reached the scene, 19 miles north- east of that city. i Early reports said there were I nearly as many hunters as there were ducks for the opening. Only Taxi Driver Theodore D. Belton, 60, says he'll go to jail before he will pay a federal income tax on his patrons' tips. "I consider them he says, "and as gifts there is no tax on those dimes and quarters." The cabby says the "gifts" average about only a dollar a week so the tax would not be heavy but "there's a prin- ciple involved." Internal revenue officials were not available for comment as Belton continued his business in Boston, Mass day.

Eisen- hower declared today there is "no sense" in the United States bear- ing the brunt of the Korean war when the South Koreans could be trained to defend themselves. Bringing his presidential cam- paign into Illinois, the GOP candi- date told a cheering throng of some at Champaign the first thing that should be done in Korea is to train the South Ko- reans. Then he said: "There is no sense in the United Nations, with America bearing the brunt of the thing, being constant- ly compelled to man those front lines. .That is a job for the Ko- reans. "We do not want Asia to feel that the white man of the West is his enemy. If there must be a war there, let it be Asians against Asians, with our support on the side of freedom." Could Avoid Wan The general said the first two World Wars and the Korean War might "easily have been had there been greater precautions taken to strengthen the United States militarily. He clearly indicated his belief this was a matter of leadership and added: "You are going to have to de- cide the kind of leadership that leads you toward that kind of in- telligent program, that kind of peace, that kind of strength at home, and whether or not you need a change. That is exactly what you must decide." A crowd estimated by police at turned out at Champaign to greet Eisenhower on his presiden- tial drive into the backyard of his Democratic opponent.
