Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson declared today that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower honorary Republican can- didate for surren- dered GOP leadership to Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio. In contrast, the Democratic nom- inee said in a speech prepared for a party luncheon here. President Truman has proved himself "a man of independence" who has "rallied the free peoples against the mortal threat of Communism and Russian imperialism." The Illinois governor took the political bit in his teeth on a flying tour of Missouri, the President's home state, to put into a few words a swiftly-developing trend in the presidential campaign. Termed Tool of Taft This trend has found the Demo- crats attacking Eisenhower as only the tool of Taft, the man he de- feated for the nomination. It has found the Republicans concentra- ting their attacks on Truman and saying that Stevenson must ac- cept responsibility for any and all administration "blunders." Stevenson, who has been talking recently of Franklin D. Roosevelt's measures to fight the depression of the '30s, without mentioning Truman, gave the President a home area send-off as "a blue ribbon winner, among Democrats. Noting that the President comes from nearby Independence, Mo., Stevenson declared: "Harry Truman is certainly a man of INDEPENDENCE. I think that's the thing I like about him most.vjjLpj'our Missouri language, he anything off any- body. "No one knows this better than Joe Stalin. And every Missourian can be proud of the fact that a man from Independence, through a series of heroic and historic de- cisions, has rallied the free peoples against the mortal threat of Com- munism and Russian imperial- ism." Endorses Truman In this strong endorsement of Truman, Stevenson indicated he is accepting the challenge of the Re- publicans to back the President's the accent on foreign policy. Previously he had avoided too close identification with Tru- man, now whistle-stopping in the nominee's behalf. Stevenson's statement was considered an an- swer, too, to Eisenhower's caustic references to a 1948 remark by Truman that "I like old Uncle Joe Stalin. Joe is a decent Stevenson ripped into Eisenhow- er and the Republican guard" he said has taken over control of the party. Asserting that Americans "have been sadly disillusioned" in their previous "belief that Eisenhower was a man of independence, Stev- enson said the general now con- tends that "party leadership de- pends on the principle com- promise." "There is a good deal to that." Stevenson said, "but a skilled party leader knows that the fatal mistake is to begin on your prin- ciples of to end by compromising your principles." He said Eisenhower's meeting with Taft in New York bsl month (Continued on Paae 13, Column 4) IKE Court May Rule On Mrs. Holm Case Friday ST.

Heavy Fighting Up to Reds attacked across the Western and Central Fronts Monday night in the biggest Com- munist offensive since May, 1951. Heavy fighting has continued in other sectors, but the main Red effort now is directed at White Horse. The initial onslaught dented the Allied lines, but failed to breech any vital defensive position. Allied warplanes today plastered Chinese positions behind White outskirts of Austin. i Found side by side in the fire said I ruins were the bodies of Mrs, Ro- bert Godwin and her daughters, Bonnie Lou, 4, and Rosemarie, 16 months.
