Two THE LEAVENWORTH TBIES, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 21,1952. Margaret Calls It 'Misunderstanding' HELSINKI, Finland, Iff) — •' believe it must all have been a simple misunderstanding." That was Margaret Truman's statement at a news conference Thursday over the ruckus kickec up • by Swedish newspapers over alleged "tough guy" tactics uset in Stockholm by her bodyguards The President's daughter had other descriptions too, such as "much ado about nothing," and "it was really silly" about ac counts in Stockholm newspapers such as the one published by Ex pressen, which said the body guards — members of the U. S Secret Service — flung aside a photographer who tried to take Miss Truman's picture at Stock holm's Central Station. As for that account, Miss Tru man suggested that perhaps the photographer involved did not un derstand English. Miss Truman stressed that she had been supplied with a body guard not on her own wish bir because a U. S. law stipulates that members of the President's familj must always be protected by such guard. She said that no member of her entourage had ever forbidden pictures being taken of her. Harry Continued from Page 1. Eisenhower had sort of garbled some of the things Truman had told him. Truman said Thursday he could riot recall saying that. He was asked what Eisenhower had garbled. Truman said maybe the general got mixed up, but he didn't think he intentionally garbled anything. Truman was asked to comment on Eisenhower's speech Wednesday night He 'said he v had not read it. 'A reporter read some quotes including one that the government now does everything but come in and wash the dishes. Truman said those things would be gone into on the stump—not at a press conference. A reporter wondered how Truman could reply to Eisenhower's speeches in the campaign if he didn't read them. The President said he thought he knew more about government than any States. man in the United . He-said he did not have to read what the Republican candidates said^that he knew what they were going to say, that they.were all wrong, and that he was going to prove that he is right. • He said he was familiar with the situation . that he knew exactly what the Republicans would say. He fold the reporters to read 'Willkie's and Dewey's speeches and they could see they got a repeat. Installations Left In Flames in Raid SEOUL, Korea UP)—U. N.
