Stevenson Bids For 32 Votes In Pennsylvania Charges Eisenhower Has 'Sordid Triumph Of Expediency' By DON WHITEHEAD ABOARD STEVENSON TRAIN E, Stevenson carried his fight for the presidency into Penn- sylvania today after accusing Gen.

They are confident, be- cause they quite honestly believe that there has been a big swing to Stevenson in recent weeks; and they are afraid, because they fear the swing may have started too late, Call in Old Pros One of the stranger features ol the situation is the weight now given in the Stevenson entourage to the verdicts of the old pros, who not formerly held in high re- gard, to say the least. Big Jim Farley, once the great enemy of all New Dealing Democrats, was the man chosen to make the ri- poste to Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy, By the same token, the Chicago patriarch, Tom Nash, and old Dan O'Connell of Albany, N. Y., are much quoted around this traveling circus nowadays. Nash has made a forecast o! a solid Democratic victory in doubt- ful Illinois, Dan O'ConneU has pre- dicted that Albany County, which tie-stop appearances may have "stirred up" local party leaders. Dixie Crosby Near Death generally reflects the swings of up- state New York, will go for Stev- enson by larger majority than in any recent pres- idential contest. O'Connell's testimony negates income, much other evidence, that Gen, i Dwight D. Eisenhower has unpre- cedented strength among the up- state New Yorkers. As O'Connell is the last surviving city boss who runs his fief in the ancient pre- cinct-by-precinct style, what he says cannot be lightly brushed aside. It must be added that con- stant repetition of this sort of iso- lated hopeful forecast is always a bad sign around any political head- quarters. Yet it is also true that Stevenson himself, Wilson Wyatt, Democratic Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell and their co-workers seem genuinely to expect to win. Hope to Hold South Broadly speaking, they think the Democrats will hold the South with the probable exception of Virginia. They think the Democrats will also hold most of the border states, with Maryland the most dangerous for them. They are fairly gloomy about the Midwest, but believe they will at least carry Illinois and Minnesota. And they expect to carry New York, California, Rhode Island, Washington, probably Mas- sachusetts, possibly Connecticut, and broadcast at p.m. (EST) from the Hotel Sherman ball- room. After the dinner, the President planned a reception for 50 poUtical and union leaders in his hotel suite. Talks at Hibbing In his speech at Hibbing last night, Truman declared that the GOP presidential nominee, "under pressure from the oil has "promised to sign a bill giving to three states the oil lands that the Supreme Court has said be- long to everybody in the United States." Then, in a departure from his i prepared text, the President ad- ded: j "And he's not going to get those three states. I've- got a mighty good friend in Texas and his name is Sam Rayburn, and he told me there are five milUon people in Texas that don't own any oil wells and have no chance of getting any oil weUs, and don't own any cattle ranches, and they are going to vote the Democratic ticket." Truman emphasized that the Democratic party isn't "really mad at but feels their policies would about too great a concentration of wealth and He declared that "prosperity is Dixie Crosby BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. UPI Dixie Lee Crosby, 40, above, wife of Bing Crosby, lay in a coma near death today. The crooner was at her bedside. So were their four sons, Lindsay, day in which Stevenson was given rousing welcomes in Jersey City, Paterson, Garfield and Newark, N. J., despite cold, disagreeable weather. Thousands were unable to get into -the Garden. He strode onto the stage to thundering cheers and immediately opened an attack on the Republi- cans and Eisenhower. He said of the Republicans: "They have everything on their side except the so our Republican friends celebrate all of their conquests and triumphs in advance of the election. "They win all of the battles ex- cept the last one, but the big one is the all generals should know. It comes in November, and that is when they discover that the most powerful publishers, the loudest commentators, and the noisiest demagogues are each, by the blessed rules of our democracy, entitled to cast one as you and I." Roaring Cheer This declaration touched of a roaring cheer in the crowd. And then Stevenson went on to say that the nation had cheered when Eisen- hower was chosen GOP presidential nominee over Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio. He said: "As the nation cheered, the Re- publican party cast out its old and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower stands with Con- rad Nagel, program director, in New York last night.

If their theory is correct, they will have a heavy majority of the Elec- toral College, although a popular majority much narrower than usual. Claims Doubted The theory is based on a series of assumptions, as follows: First, the Negro vote is larger and more solid than ever. Second, the Re- publicans have made but little dent on the other special, foreign-des- cended groups with the exception of the Irish, and even the Irish defection is minimized although acknowledged. Third, labor is aroused and solid. Fourth, despite its great power, the Eisenhower movement in the South has not shifted the basic, mass Democratic vote in that region. And fifth and perhaps most important, the inde- pendent voters are going over to Stevenson.

The significant paragraph read: "The Joint Chiefs of Staff con- sider that from a standpoint of military security, the U. S. has little strategic interest in main- taining the present troops and bases in Korea...." Eisenhower, as Army chief of staff at that time, was a member of the joint chiefs. The argument over responsibfl- ity for the actions that led up to the Korean War has been raging back and forth with increasing bitterness. Briefly, it centers on Roaring artillery barrages pound- ed the retreating Reds. Gen Mark Clark, touring Korea, congratulated Lt. Gen.

Eisenhower, in reply, says the joint chiefs made purely military estimates, at the request of the administration. He has emphasized his argument that a vast difference exists between such military esti- mates and political decisions. And he has accused Secretary of State Dean Acheson of making a major blunder in announcing, later, that the "defense perimeter" of the United States in the Far East did not embrace either Korea or Formosa, The general said last night: "The claim is made that that secret military estimate was re- sponsible for our highest political leaders making a political decision in 1949. If that is true, what these political leaders are saying is this: 'We abdicated our authority and responsibilities as the political leaders the civilian political leaders, and took a military esti- mate on an entirely different sub- ject, two years old, as bur alibi.'

Byrnes said that the late Presi- dent Franklin D.
