Ike Strategists Consider Stand On Joe McCar Adlai Happy Over Whistle Stop Response Ready to Rap GOP on Issue Of Corruption LOS ANGELES an Gov. Adlai Stevenson, cheered by his first try at whistle-stop speaking, prepared today to assault the Republicans in one of their favorite campaign fields the question of corruption in government. He says there are more impor- tant issues to be fought out in electing the next president, However, he came into Los An- geles last night with the draft of a speech that will go into the issue. His campaign manager, Wilson Wyatt, said Stevenson will examine the question in a Town Hall ap- rum lasts pearance today. The Democratic candidate is working on another key address for Thursday night. Aides indicat- ed it will deal with his views on social security legislation.

Bolich, formerly the government's No. 2 tax collector, was indicted today on charges of evading his own income taxes. The Justice De- partment announced the indict- ment, by a grand jury in Brooklyn. Atty. Gen. McGranery said the grand jury had returned a five- count indictment against Bolich, covering the years 1946-50 inclu- sive. Bolich was the second ranking official of the Internal Revenue Bureau before he retired. Congres- sional investigators have also been looking into his activities.

Eisenhower, before wit- nesses, that he will support any policies Eisenhower as president asks him to support. In effect, this was a promise by Jenner to change his vote on almost every foreign and defense issue, and on a good many domestic issues too. But Jenner nonetheless gave this promise at Chicago last Friday, when he attended Eisenhower s meeting there with Midwestern Republican leaders. This is an odd culmination, in- deed, for the process which began with the Indiana Republican or- ganization's last-ditch fight for Sen. Robert A. Taft.

Jenner himself biiterly and semi- publicly complained that the nom- ination of Gen. Eisenhower had "cut the rug out from under because he and Eisenhower disa- greed about everything. But when Jenner began campaigning in ear- nest, he evidently discovered two significant facts. First, as of now, according to the comprehensive Star War Increaiei Snyder said the war increased tax collections eight-fold from five billion dollars in 1940 to 40 bil- lions in 1948 and that the num- ber of taxpayers went up from 20 to 80 millions. But, he said, the bureau's staff increased only 2V4 times. He said this meant the bureau came out of the war years "much the worse for wear.'' Increased taxes, he said, brought increased tendency toward evasion and more temptation for the tax bureau's staff as well as taxpayers. Thus, geant put the figure at The he said, people who were "too little city has a population of or too weak" caved in, and irregu- Except when he discussed some larities developed, local or regional situation, Steven- j Congressional investigations in son said little that he hasn't said j the past 18 months have looked elsewhere in his speeches. into charges of tax squeezes, favor- He taunted the Republicans itism and outside activities of bu- about the "Old Guard" and the other wing of the party, and needled the GOP on the ground that Eisenhower is stealing all the planks in the Democratic platform.

President Truman in January submitted a reorganiza- tion plan, which Congress accept- ed, to abolish the politically ap- pointed collectors and substitute directors of internal revenue chosen through civil service procedures.

IKE U.S. Farmers To Harvest Record Crop Areas Damaged By Drought Not Included WASHINGTON The United States is producing a record vol- ume of crop and livestock products this year, but not all farmers are sharing in it. In its September crop progress report, the Agriculture Department said livestock farmers in some sec- tions of the South and Southwest face serious shortages of feed for their cattle and other livestock next winter because of drought damage. The volume of crops indicated on Sept, 1 was close to the second largest on record, produced in 1949, the department said. The produc- tion of livestock products meat animals, dairy and poultry prod- ucts and be the largest ever produced. As a result the combined production of crops and livestock products will set a new I record. I A feature of this year's produc- tion is the fact that it is well bal- anced. That is, the prospective big production does not reflect record outturns of a few crops offset by small volumes of other crops. Only in the case of winter wheat and rice are production records indi- cated. The severe drought which affect- ed wide areas in the East and Southeast as well as the Southwest during July has raised concern among officials lest farmers be forced, by lack of feed, to sell off much of their livestock. The new report said it had not turned out that way. Instead, live- stock was said to have held up well, except in the very driest areas. Marketings have not been unusually heavy. The vital hay crop was said to be turning out better than had been expected. The corn crop estimate was boosted 50 million bushels above the August estimate, put- ting it at bushels or 8 per cent more than last year. The wheat crop remained virtu- ally unchanged at bushels, the second largest on rec- ord and 311 million bushels more than last year. The potato crop increased slight- ly to top last year's short crop by 12 million bushels but still leaving it short of the government's pro- duction goal of 350 million bushels. Taft to Speak For 'Whole GOP' CINCINNATI Sen. Rob- ert A. Taft will "speak for tha whole Republican party tick- et" in a speech at Springfield, 0., Sept. 17, his headquarters announced this afternoon. "Does that include Gen. a reporter ask- ed. "It means the whole Repub- lican was the reply, "and especially for Charles P. Taft." Charles P. Taft, younger brother of the senator, is the Republican nominee for Ohio governor. Sen. Taft left for New York today, presumably for a con- ference with Gen. Eisenhower, who defeated him for the Re- publican presidential nomina- tion.

High Statement of One Party Press Says Ike Wrong That Nation Wants Change By ARTHUR L. EDSON WASHINGTON UP) Truman said today Adlai Steven- son is right in saying the country has a one-party'press. And Dwight D. Eisenhower ii wrong, he said, in declaring people are primarily interested in a change of administrations at Washington. What people are most concerned i about is peace, the President told his news conference. He added j that Eisenhower is running as the Republican candidate for president on a course that calls for an "iso- lationist Congress" that wouldn't I bring peace. Stevenson has said his campaign as the Democratic candidate rum into a situation in which most newspapers are pro Republican. That's right, Truman said, adding that it doesn't seem to make much difference because the Democrats win anyway. The President said it was same way in 1948 when, he said only 10.3 per cent of the daily newspapers supported the Demo- cratic party. A reporter mentioned to President that Stevenson had point- ed out that although the newspa- pers may support the Republicani editorially most of them are treat- ing the political issues fairly in their news columns. Truman agreed with this and added: The fairness has been in- creasing since Gov. remarks. At the same time, Truman: Refused to comment on Sen. Mc- ji juiui _ _.
