It a million dollars to "face the foe" In 1950, McG'rnth said the party should net between J280.000 and $300.000 from this year's Jefferson-Jackson day dinners which the party was called to celebrate. Wilson W. Wyatt of Louisville, former housing administrator, and Mrs. Ferle Mesta, Washington hostess .shared honors as co-chairmen. McGrath said the dinner not only celebrated victory but expressed "graliliidc to God" for bestowing on the country its present leadership. "Small Chanje" Truman Says President Truman arose to Jay I that he was "not used lo figures" f like the million dollars his party has promised, either "personally or as a Democrat." As president of the United States, he added, he considers billions, and the million dollars "are small change." On th» other hand, he went on: "I never in my life ran for office that Ihe Democrats didn't have a deficit to start, with, and wind up wiih a deficit after they got through." He said the fund raising meant something to him because "if you had been in my financial condition all your life, you would more than appreclale it." Then, turning solemn, he said he liked to look into the faces of Democrats who are interested "in the welfare or the people as people— who are not interesled in representing special inlerests In government."
