Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1952, Winona, Minnesota Warm Tonight, Showers, Cooler Sunday You Can Register Now For Nov. 4 Election VOLUME 52, NO. 177 SIX CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 13, 1952 TODAY Harry Eager To Hit Road For Adlai By Stewart WASHINGTON The forgotten man of this campaign, for the mo- ment, Is the occupant of the White House. But Harry S. Truman does not intend to remain a forgotten man very much longer. For the famous Presidential dander is now up. Truman will keep his promise to Gov. Stevenson to stay out of the limelight throughout this month. But according to those close to him, he can hardly wait to mount the hustings when this month ends. There are two reasons for this Presidential eagerness for the whistle stops. In the first place, the kind of campaign Gen. Eisen- hower has been waging, especially in the last few days, has thorough- ly enraged the President. As Tru- man has said many times, he has always liked and admired Eisen- hower; and Eisenhower's current "fighting" campaign, which has so delighted many Republicans, has seemed to Truman ingratitude "sharper than a serpent's tooth." Truman Infuriated Perhaps Truman expected Eis- enhower to wage a lofty, non-parti- san "national unity" campaign. In- stead, Eisenhower has been slam- ming the Truman administration as hard as Truman himself used to slam the "do-nothing 80th Con- gress." What particularly infuri- ates Truman is Eisenhower's crit- icism of the Administration's.-han- dling of foreign policy, above all Eisenhower's charge that Ad- ministration "bungling" led to the Korean War. And now Truman is thirsting for oratorical revenge. In the second place, it is no sec- ret that certain aspects of Gov. Stevenson's campaign have not pleased the President. He was so angered by Stevenson's "mess in Washington" gaff that Stevenson himself, after much burning of the wires between Washington and Springfield, had to telephone tie President in order to mollify him. Since then, Stevenson's defense of the Administration record seems to Truman, and with some reason, distinctly pallid. While Gen. Eisen- hower had been hammering away at "the mess in and Stevenson has been calmly re- marking that the Administration has made mistakes and that "there will probably be more." This is reportedly not Truman's notion of a spirited defense of the Adminis- tration, and he is eager to go to his own defense. Counter-Attack Prepared Accordingly, the chief business in the White House these days is the preparation of the Truman counter-attack, with particular em- phasis on foreign policy. Like any president, Truman has the special advantages of his office. There have been hints that certain pap. ers may be declassified to prove that Gen. Eisenhower himself rec- ommended the withdrawal of American troops from Korea, over the objections of the State Depart- ment. Likewise, the war-t i m e cables and messages of Gen. Doug- las MacArthur may be made pub- lic, to deflate the Republican charge of a "betrayal at Yalta." MacArthur is said to have recom- mended paying a higher price than any paid at Yalta, in order to get Rescue Squad Members work on Fireman Al Benson who was overcome by smoke while fighting a shoe store fire in Minneapolis late Friday. Benson, one of more than a dozen firemen overcome, was the only one who required hospital attention. The firemen were overcome by the thick, black smoke sent up by burning over- shoes and other rubber footwear.

VACCARO WASHINGTON Truman carried UP) the President Democratic National Committee's blessing to- day for an 15-day "give 'em-hell" campaign carrying him into 24 states.

It remains to be seen how well Tru- and Stevenson will work to- gether. At first, Stevenson was by no means pleased by Truman's campaign plans. In August, sug- gestions were conveyed from Springfield to Washington that there would be no objections at all from Stevenson if Truman decid- ed to cancel the speech he had scheduled for Milwaukee on Labor Day. But Stevenson and those around him were impressed by the reaction to the Milwaukee speech, and especially by the enthusiastic turnout which greeted the Presi- dent in his subsequent whistle stop appearances in West Virginia and elsewhere. Truman's whistle stop1 plans for October have now reportedly been welcomed and approved in the Stevenson camp. And it may in- deed be that the Truman-Steven- son combination will prove dis- tinctly formidable, with Stevenson "educating and elevating" the vot- ers, while Truman "gives-'em- hell."

Milwaukes Talk In the Milwaukee talk, he in- sisted that the voters must elect heavy Democratic majorities to the next Congress. This, he said, would bolster the hands of what he called the liberal Democratic majority in the fight with what he described as an overwhelmingly reactionary Republican represen- tation. This note, taking cognizance of frequent votes against the admin- istration by some Southern Demo- crats, is expected to play a part in his forthcoming trip in which he will emphasize a plea for the election of Democratic congres- sional candidates. These will include Democratic representatives Mike Mansfield of Montana, Henry M. Jackson of Washington and Walter K. Granger of Utah, now seeking Senate seats held by Republicans. Truman will board his bullet- proof private car the night of Sept. 27 immediately after a radio and the with the annual Community Chest drive. The Democratic National Com- mittee will pick up the check for this admittedly full-fledged political trip. The 15-day swing by the Presi- dent will be followed shortly by another swing through the East in which he will make speeches in Boston and other cities. The President plans to campaign right up until election day, closing with in Missouri television broadcast from White House in connection Ike Calls For Crusaders In GOP Fight Spirit Needed More Than Vote-Getting By JACK BELL NEW YORK Dwight D. Eisenhower told cheering volunteer workers today that a crusading spirit will go further than political organization toward winning the November election. The Republican presidential no- minee, speaking off the cuff to a Citizens for Eisenhower-N i x o n meeting, told amateur supporters gathered from all sections of the country that their spirit inspires j him more than their efforts to get out the vote. I "I believe in organization but I believe more in spirit, and that is what I see here Eisenhow- er declared. Preparing to embark Sunday on a fast traveling Midwestern cam- paign trip, Eisenhower took time off from speech writing to drive ifrom his Commodore Hotel head- j quarters to the Park Lane Hotel where the citizens' group has been meeting for two days. The Republican presidential no- minee told the delegates he some- times shudders at such charac- terizations because he fears they involve over-statements. Instead of being described as a man who can bring us peace, he said he wants to be known as a man devoted to working toward peace. "It is going to require the ef- forts of 155 million people to bring he said. "This problem is not going to be solved easily. It may take years." The general sets out late Sun- day on the new 12 day, 12 state whistle stop campaign tour. A New York congressman moved today to push Gov. Thomas E. Dewey into an active part in the Republican presidential campaign after Sen. Robert A. Taft's spec- tacular enlistment in the field. Rep. Leonard W. Hall was lead- ing a drive to expand Dewey's in- fluence beyond the win-New York role which previously had been assigned to the 1944 and 1948 GOP presidential nominee. "If the governor will consent to a more active part in the cam- paign, I am sure that his help will be Hall told a re- porter. However, representatives of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who were influential in arranging the conference from which Taft emerged to announce he would give all-out aid to the Republican nominee, were noticeably cool to Hall's suggestion. Sen. Frank Carlson of Kansas and Ralph Cake, Oregon National committeeman, said they hadn't heard any report that well as undertake a national broadcast for the ticket. I Since the July Chicago conven- jtion, where he helped Eisenhower win the nomination from Taft, Dewey has been cast in the role of the Republican party's forgotten man. Taft Charget He has remained in the back- ground, apparently because of charges by the Taft forces that he engineered Eisenhower's nomina- tion and was dominating his cam- paign. Taft leaders such as Thom- as E. Coleman of Wisconsin said they counted in the pre-convention campaign on what they called an anti-Dewey sentiment among Re- publicans of the Midwest. If Dewey were asked to take a more important role in the cam- paign than he thus far has as- sumed publicly, it was the con- census at Eisenhower headquar- ters here {hat he would be asked to appeal primarily to the voters in the Eastern Seaboard states. That Eisenhower's backers re- gard the election results, as touch- and-go was demonstrated when Gov. Sherman Adams of New Hampshire told the Citizens for Eisenhower-Nixon meeting in a two-day session here that without I their help "all might be lost." I Adams, who has been described by Eisenhower as his "personal boss" on campaign strategy, pre- dieted in a speech before the group 1 that independents would decide the election. Eisenhower scheduled a closed session appearance before the group today. He planned to spend the remainder of the day in draft- ing speeches for a Midwestern whistle stop tour on which he will depart Sunday. Adams Contended Adams contended that despite all of the moves made to effect Republican unity, "the soul is Ei- senhower's" in the campaign. In March, Adams had called Taft an "isolationist" and had claimed Eisenhower was in the opposite camp on international affairs. Taft told a news conference yes- terday that he and Eisenhower agree generally on domestic is- sues, but added in a statement read to reporters: "I cannot say that I agree with all of Gen. Eisenhower's views on the foreign policy to 'be pursued in Europe and the rest of the world, but I think it is fair to say that our differences are differ- of Red Korea Power lant Hammered Mrs. Betty Edmunds, a passerby, attempts to comfort Allen Heddle, 15, critically injured in the wreckage of an automobile in Minneapolis after a car accident this morning.

At dawn, planes from the U.S. Navy carriers Bon Homme Rich- ard and Princeton struck a troop concentration center at Hoeryong, IVii miles from Manchuria and 41 miles west of Siberia. More than 35 Superiorts from Okinawa and Japan droned through Red flak for more than 2Vi hours over Suiho, feet south of Communist Manchuria. It was the northernmost penetration of the Korean War by the giant bombers. They hurled 350 tons of plosives on installations under- going repair from the massive Al- lied fighter bomber raid in on Suiho. Suiho's generators supplied power to all North Korea and to many Chinese Communist industries in Manchuria. Transmission Lines Reconnaissance reports of moved transformers and new transmission lines, the Air Force said, indicated "the onetime fourth largest power plant of the world was again ripening as a target." One of the three B29 wings carried armor-piercing bombs intended to knock out Suiho's heavy machinery for keeps. The B29 raid was even heavier than the June raid, an Air spokesman said. The Navy said eight barracks buildings were destroyed and 22 damaged at Hoeryong, where re- connaissance pilots earlier this week had spotted baggage of in- coming troops. The U.S. Fifth Air Force said its pilots shot down 14 Communist MIG jets without losing a singla Sabre jet in the week ended Fri- day. But the MIGs shot down three slower F84 Thunderjets. One F80 Shooting Star was lost to Red ground fire. On the Central Front, South Ko- rean soldiers and U.N. artillery today shot up three attacks by several hundred Chinese at Allied- held Capitol Hill. Just to the west, ROK (Republic of Korea) troops ran into firm op- position when they tried to re- capture Finger Ridge from the Chinese. On the Crest The Koreans were reported on the crest at one time during a fierce night battle, but a U.S. Eighth Army staff officer said at daybreak it was impossible to tell who held the crest. In other ground action Friday, the Chinese probed at Bunker Hill for about 10 minutes before with- drawing to their own positions on the Western Front, near the truce talks site of Panmunjom. Eighth Army headquarters re- ported the ROK Capitol Division inflicted casualties on the Chinese in the week-long fighting around Capitol Hill and Finger Ridge. It also said U.S. divisions inflicted almost Red casual- ties during the first week of Sep- tember, but that this figure ap- parently was incomplete. The Air Force said it decided to smash at the Suiho power project when reconnaissance pilots report- ed the Reds were working night and day to get at least one of massive generators turning again. In the June 23 raid, the fighter bombers burned out two of Suiho's main transformers and damaged a third. In addition, about 20 heavy transmission lines were knocked out. Throughout July and August, Al- lied reconnaissance planes inspec- ted the area. They noted the Reds were moving in additional large caliber antiaircraft guns. On July 14, pictures showed that eight of the transmission lines were being replaced. Finally, the Communists moved low-voltage transformers to a nearby hill and dug them in. The switchyard was being cleaned up and generator house repaired. The; Air Force decided it was again tiaw to strikfl. ;
