WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBKR 5, 1991 'Give BLYTHEVILLE'(ASlC f ) COURIER NEW1 em Hell' Harry Seems Sef For 19 52 in Democrat Rally Speech. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 5. (AP)—President Truman appeared today to have hit the re-election campaign trail with * 1952 platform virtually written. He did everything but formally announce his candidacy at a Democratic rally here where he called his opponents names ranging from special nrivilpirp hnvs" fn "economic fossils." "special privilege boys" to And he constructed his 1952 plat- he left no doubt about the weapons "Wm under the familiar "Fair Deal" he will hurl against the •Republl- anner as he predicted "we are go- cans in 1952. Ing to elect a President next year.' He didn't say It would be Harry 8. Truman, but the way the Democrats stood up and cheered— and his own obvious relish of the applause—made things pretty clear to those around. Mr. 'Trtimau headed for his home in the Midwest after a couple of San Francisco speeches, in which the off-the-cuff political talk at a party luncheon created more excrte- ment that his major foreign policy address opening the Japanese Peace Treaty conference last night. The White House plane, the "Independence" was ready to take him to Jackson County. Mo., where ne started on the road to the Presidency. Take, off time was set at 7 a.m. (9 a.m.. EST) which should put him in the Kansas City Municipal Airport at 2 p.m. -CEST) for a visit to last throughout the Magnuson (D.-\Vash), expected week. Senator who was among those cheering the President on at the luncheon speech, told a reporter, with obvious satisfatcion: "I thought he threw his hat into the ring." And that was what just about everybody else among the upward of 150 others at the luncheon t light, too. Talk Wu a "Bombshell' The President's campaign - like talk appeared to be as much of a bomb-shell to the party workers as his assertion that new weapons are being developed which would destroy civilization in the event of mother all-out war. "It is fantastic what can happen with the use of new weapons that are now under construction in this country, not only the one which we all fear the most, but there are Home weapons which are fantastic In their operation." The President didn't disclose what weapons he had In mind, but arts in 1952. Memories of his "Give 'em Hell" campaign of 1848 were stirred bj the President's assertion: "The Democratic Party has a duty to the country, and if I am not badly mistaken the Democratic Party Is going to keep right on carrying out that duty." "Next Year. 195Z—" "Next year, 1952"—the President got no further. His audience arose cheering in campaign fashion as though the election were Just around the corner. When the applause subsided, the President told them, "you Interrupted me." but he looked happy about it and his grin spread to unusual proportions. "We are going to elect a President next year, anrt that means< that we are going to have the opportunity to see that this country stays in the right path." Mr. Truman said. Everybody laughed when he added later: "I don't know who the Democratic candidates will be next year, but I do know this: they will be fighters for peace; they will understand what it takes to make America strong; they will fight for all the people—not just a few." OOP's Blasted The President cut loose at the Republican opposition. He didn't call the GOP by name, but he attributed to the Democrats a long record of achievements and everybody knew there is only one other majnr party. "These anti-defense, anti-control, anti-everything people (those who oppose the Democratic policies) are the same ones who have been against everything we have been doing in this country for the last 20 years io improve the conditions for the farmer, /or labor and /or the average family," the President said. Warming to his theme, he cut] President Truman and hat . com* think he threw It In (he Juveniles Use Aged Woman's Love of Cats to Extort $3,000 HOUSTON,.Tex., Sept. 5. W)—A gang of juveniles used an aged woman's love of cats to bilk her of between $2.000 and f3,000 In less than a year's time. Police yesterday revealed they had broken the unique extortion racket of u children, aged 8 to 18. •Crime Prevention Detectives E.E. f kland and Leo Horton said the ning story started last Hallon night when Mrs. Annella Edmonds, 76. saw three boys throwing rocks at a oat. The detectives said Mrs. Edmonds «buked the boys for being cruel. Then to persuade the lads not to torture the animal any more, she gave them each a $1. Next (Jay the boys % aga!n man- tged to throw stones at a cat near Mrs. IMmond's house. Again they vert given a cash reward to leave the animal alone. The word spread to other boys. Boon they were bringing cats to Mri. Edmonds and threatening to torture them unless she bought the «nim«hi at $3 each. Mrs. Edmonds bought the cats. She Bought Cats Dally Almost every day she bought cats, and the detectives said a 13-year- old boy soon became the "brains" for the group. The boys told the detectives they had gotten from $2.000 to $3,000 from Mrs. Edmonds in ten months, ^•he gang leader thought of "re- JJements" to get money. He called and told Mrs. Edmonds he had found a cat with a broken back but needed money to take it to a veterinarian. She gave him $10. A surprising number of "injured" cats were found near the home of Mrs. Edmonds. Maid Calls Police Police started an investigation last Friday after receiving a call from Mrs. Edmonds' maid. The 11 boys were arrested over the week-end. Eight were released to their parents. The leader and two others, 9 and 13, were turned over to the probation department. Mrs. Edmonds said she had been giving the boys money for nearly a year (but she didn't think it was as much as they claimed. She said she lives on a monthly allowance left to her by a brother. Police said the boys used the money for picture shows, soda pop and other items of desire. ring. loose against "reactionaries and isolationists, these antis and false economizers" as being "as blind about what it takes to keep the country strong as they are about what it. takes to keep peace in the world." Truman Scoffs at Ruin Mr. Truman scoffed at those he said are crying the Democrats have taken "the country down the road to ruin." "It's a wonderful ruin, and I'm glad to be a part of it," he added Mr. Truman said the purchasing power of the average man has gone up W per cent since 1939 "using the I»39 dollar or the dollar we have today. "And they can't go behind It. for figures don't lie — although liars can sometimes figure." He went on from there: "We have economic; fossils today who want the profits of 195! the wages and hours of McKinley'l first term." There was another political in word from California Democrat* that the President had decided to return Oct. 8 for a $100 a plate dinner of the Democratic Nationa Committee at Los Angeles — unless unforeseen problems arise In Washington.
