THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES Ninety-Sixth Year. No. 120 LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 22,1952.—TEN PAGES Ike, Nixon HardToFindMuchDifferena In Parties' Agriculture Plans Will Back McCarthy GOP Nominees May Not Endorse Views; Intend To Support Candidates WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Nixon of California said Friday both he and Dwight D. Eisenhower will suppor Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin — if he is renom- inated — without necessarily endorsing McCarthy's views. Nixon, the GOP vice presidential nominee, told a reporter he and Eisenhower, the presidential candidate, will back all Republican Senate and House nominees in an effort to gain GOP control of Congress in November. But Nixon added: "I want to make it clear that in supporting any particular candidate neither I nor Gen. Eisenhower, will endorse the views or the methods of Republican candidates which happen to be different from our own. By OVTD A. WASHINGTON H) may find little difference in the views of the two major presidential candidates, on the question of price supports for agricultural commodities. Statements made by Dwight D. Eisenhower and Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson at news conferences in- "We recognize that in both th. Republican and Democratic Par ties there is and should be room for individuals who have differ ing views on key issues." The vice presidential candidate said neither he nor Eisenhower has had the opportunity to look into McCarthy's charges and therefore neither had critized "McCarthy's views and methods. Nixon's statement came after Sen. A,' S. Monroney of Oklahoma called ''incredible" an assertion by Sen. Karl Mundt of South Dakota that Dwight D. Eisenhower will luppprt McCarthy's bid for reelection. Monroney issued this statement after Mundt said on a radio program that Eisenhower will "en dorse and campaign actively" for McCarthy if the latter is renomin ated by Wisconsin Republicans and Jf he asks for Eisenhower's help Mundt is co-chairman of the Republican-campaign speakers' bureau. On the radio program, Mundt Also said that Eisenhower, the GOP presidential nominee, will also campaign for Sens'. James P. Kern Of Missouri, William E. Jenner of Indiana and John W. Bricker of Ohio, Republicans who have not shared Eisenhower's foreign policy views. Monroney said he finds it impossible to believe that Eisenhower would appear on the same platform with McCarthy because of the latter's attacks on Gen. George C. Marshall, who helped Eisenhower attain his five-star general's rank. The Oklahoma senator noted that in a Senate speech McCarthy had accused Marshall of participating in conspiracy of infamy so black that when it is finally exposed, its principals shall \e for- Ike's Korean Views Oppose Some in Party DENVER IB—Dwight D. Eisen- mwer's sharp disagreement with Korean War policy views voiced jy some Republicans raised a question Friday whether he might get a kick-back within the party anks. The general coupled the criti- ism with an assertion that "really errible blunders" brought on the var—a direct jab at the Truman dministration. But he .also said at a meeting of Midwestern Republican leaders at Kansas City, Kas., Thursday that: 1. Because of the "terrible blunders," this country had no choice but to intervene when the Communists attacked the South Koreans in June, 1950. If it had not done so, the general" added, "we would already be involved in a very much greater and more serious thing than we are today." But he said that "does not excuse the people that allowed the conditions to arise that brought about that emergency." 2. If the Allies attacked Red China, "we would be . . .-starting another war far more difficult to top than the one we are in now." And he said further that "no one IIA' idicated that their positions on this Farmers issue, when finally outlined, may be quite similar. Eisenhower said in reply to a query that if he were elected there would be no tempering with the price support law. He said he had received no suggestions that supports be lowered. Stevenson ruled out the controversial Brannan Plan which Eisenhower and the GOP national platform had sought to tie to the Democrats. The Illinois governor said in effect that the Republicans, in trying to make the Brannan Plan an issue, were barking up the wrong tree. He said this plan was obsolete, that it had not been endorsed by his party's platform or recommended by its candidates. Thus the statements of the rival candidates were open to the interpretation that both endorse the exising farm price support law.j This law requires 'that basic crops — wheat, corn, cotton, tobacco, rice and peanuts—be supported at not less than 90 per cent of parity—the level in effect this year—during the next two crop years. ; The Democratic platform prom-| jjfc ises to "continue" the 90 per cen minimum supports beyond the two - year period. Eisenhower's statement that there would be no reduction in price supp'orts couk be interpreted as meaning that he too would advocate their continuance. If any substantial difference should show up in the views of the two candidates on price supports, it may be in the field of perishable commodities. The Democratic platform promises to continue to search for a "workable" method of supporting perishables. Brannan has contended present laws provide no workable method. The Republican platform, on the other hand, would leave the problem of stabilizing prices of perishables largely to local voluntary farmer programs. I know of has presented any feasible military plan for attacking China." On that point, Eisenhower appeared to be taking direct issue .vith Gen. Douglas MacArthur and 3OP members of Congress who have backed MacArthur's proposal that the Allies bomb Communist China's Manchurian bases. On Eisenhower's statement "that he U. S. had no choice but to ntervene in Korea, there also are some Republicans who hold a dif- erent view. They feel it was a great mistake to have made the move. * Eisenhower returned from the - .— ^ „ fansas conference by planei^ 2 monin s.

Lewis has given formal notice that his contracts with the coal industry will expire at the end of September. This set up the possibility of a nationwide coal strike at that time. The Taft-Hartley Act requires that the government be informec of a labor dispute at least 30 days before the work contract expires Lewis, president of the Unitet Mine Workers Union, gave federa mediators the required notice tha contracts with both the soft and hard coal industry will run ou then, these officials said. This could—as it has done before—precede a strike providing no agreement on a new contrad is reached by the end of September. Lewis has been negotiating off and on since July 24 with Harry M. Moses, president of the-Bituminous Coal Operators Association, and Joseph E. Moody, president of the Southern Coal Producers Association. His negotiations with Moody did not .start until the beginning of this month. Sixty days notice is required before the expiring contracts between the UMW and the industry can be ended: Lewis gave his 60-day notice to Moses, who bargains for 240 million tons of coal a year, on July 22. That means he could legally take his Northern soft coal diggers out of the pits about Sept. 22. His contract expiration notices to Moody and the anthracite industry were given on Aug. 1. Thus Lewis' hard-coal miners and Southern diggers could not legally strike for a new work contract until the end of next month. Stevenson Agrees on 'Key Figure' Democratic Figure Avoid* Saying He Must Run On Truman's Record MINOCQUA, Wis. (AP)— ov. Adlai Stevenson Friday called President Truman a 'key figure" in the presidential campaign but he did not say that he must run on the record of the Roosevelt-Truman, administrations. Stevenson's comments came In reply to questions submitted to lim by correspondents at this vacation retreat. Stevenson was asked for comment on Truman's news confer- nce remark Thursday that he must run on the Roosevelt-Trunan records, and that this makes 'ruman a key figure in the campaign. Stevenson replied: "Of course. approve and applaud the vast accomplishments for the publis good under -Democratic leader- hip. And I was pleased to read yesterday that the general (Dwight D. Eisenhower) considers these social gains now 'above politics." "Of course, President Truman or any president is a key figure in a national campaign. And w« Democrats wfll look to America's future, not just to our fruitful past." Stevenson was asked what h« thought of Eisenhower moving his campaign headquarters into Nevr York City. He replied: "I guess the Eastern Republican Party found Denver too inconvenient, so the mountain moved to Mahomet. I intend to keep my headquarters in Springfield, HI." Then he referred to Eisenhower's speech .at Kansas City, Kas., where the general criticized the "terrible blunders" which he said lad preceded the Korean War. "I am glad to hear that th« general has also approved President Truman's resistance to Communist-aggression in Korea," Stevenson said.

Leavell dived for the boy but couldn't find him. Then, he seized a floating fishing cane, gave it a tug and dragged the boy from the stream. The youth's hook was embedded in his thumb. The boy was revived with ar- tifical respiration. all of 1951. On Aug. 25 last year, the closest comparable date, 253 cases of the disease had been reported. The total cases recorded in 1951 was 789.
