Senators Estca Kefauver of Toh- nessoe and Robert A. Taft of Ohio voiced agi cement on only one thing—that corruption in govern­ ment'will be a ntajor compalgn Issue. They clashed on a television program (NBC) after Republlcnii Sen. Wayne Morse of Oregon, also on D. NBC-TV show, strongly indicated ho wlU "lake a. walk' froi^ the party—or at least will .remain silent In the campaign—if Taft is nominated, * * * TT'S VERY doubtful that with inteUoclual honesty I could poss Ibly make a speech in behalf uf Robert Taft," said Morse, a sup porter of Gen.

Ke^^uver accused Toft of "showing t)>o same Isolationist polloo' as beforo World War II, when ho voted against lend-lease, selective service, and ever^'thlng else." He Ignored Taft's "Oh, No! No!." protest tci add Taft voted on both sId es of the point four program to help underdeveloped nations. Talt called this an unjustified slur and went on to attack the administrations domestic and foreign policies, many endorsed by the Tennessean. , * * #, THE TWO LISTED what they considered the three main domestic issues: Taft's—corruption In government, excessive government spending, and excessive power of the federal government. Kefauv- er's—maintalnlng prosperity for the workers, farmers and buslneii*- men; combatting Inflation; and corruption.
