COURIER NEWS WASHINGTON, Aug. 16. <AP) -* President Truman's blast at "hate- mongers" brought a challenge from Senator McCarthy (R-wts) today for a 1952 political showdown on his Communists - in - government I charges.

He said: "If Truman wants to make the fight against Communism—which he calls 'McCarthyism'—an issue in ihe campaign, I will welcome it, It will give the people a chance to choose between Americanism or a combination ot Trurnanism anil Communism." "Rlp-Snorling Speech" Senator Humphrey, (D-Minn) said the President told him m advance he would make a "rip-snorting" speech. In his speech, Mr. Truman assailed people he can claim to be Planted his against communism but are "chip- ~' ping away at our basic freedoms '' just as insidiously and far more effectively that the Communists i have ever been able to do." 1 Declaring that these people, whom he did not. name, have attacked the basic .principles of fair play, Mr. Truman said : "They are filling ihe air with the most Irresponsible kinds of accusations against other people. They are trying to get us to believe that our government Is riddled with communism and corruption—when . the fact is that we have the finest and most loyal body of civil servants In the world. Hysteria Sought "Those slandermongers are trying to get us so hysterical that iio one will stand up to them for fear of being called a Communist." Senator Taft of Ohio, mentioned as a possible Republican presidential candidate next year, told a reporter he regards Mr. Truman as the "hysterical" one. "He might point out specifically something that has been safd about him that isn't true," Taft suggested. Mr. Trimian told the Legion audience that it was "an old communist trick in reverse" to scare people Into keeping silent about their rights, and he added: "Yet this is cxa.-i-ly what the scaremongers and haie-moiigers are i- trying to bring about.- Character as- 'Vsasslnation is their stock ill Irade. Guilt by association is their motto. "They have created such a wave of fear and uncertainty that their attacks upon our liberties go almost unchallenged. Many people are growing frightened—nnd frightened people don't protest." 'Humphrey told a reporter he thinks the President "safe! something that needed to be said." He said he Is "confident the President will make this an issue in next year's campaign." •ithout winning a race and he may have turned to chords for consolation, At any r;fte.

(AP)— Old maids—those with the courage to admit it—gathered here today and Joked about their unmarried status. It's the second annual old maid's day in Dcnton, officially proclaimed, by the mayor. There will be free movies, corsages, programs and other festivities for the spinsters. The tonguc-in-chcek project was originated last year by Miss Dorothy Babb, teacher in the Nortli Texas State College here. She decided old maids always had to buy baby presents or wedding gifts for" other people but never had a chance to receive gifts. (Old maids don't have birthdays, she says). So with the help of other old maids and Denton merchants she arranged the special day. No husband is the only requirement for the unofficial organization. Age doesn't matter. One of the oldest active members is Miss Jennie Tanner of Dallas—lige "82 plus." She can't attend but for several weeks she has been writing other old maids expressing whole- heated approval of the Idea.
