Morse (D- Dre) for saying that President Elsenhower and Dave Beck are "the same kind of Immorallsts." But Morse fought back, repeating the charge on the Senate door: "In my book the President of the United States Is guilty of political Immorality." Morse challenged the Republicans to offer a resolution to censure him. No one took the dare, "Shocking," "very offensive," 'unfair," "character assassination," "bad taste"--these were some of the verbal shells th GOP fired. The sharp-tongued Morse, wh used to be a Republican hlmsel compared Eisenhower to Pres dent Beck of the Teamster Jnlon In a speech at Detro last Saturday night.

' The counter-offensive against Morse was planned by Sen. Bridges, of New Hampshire, who Is chairman of the-Senate Republican Policy Committee, and who from' time to time has differed with Elsenhower. , One of those who did so was Sen. Capchart (R-Ind), who called Morse's statements about Elsenhower an "almost unbelievable , , . assault on an honest, decent man," , SEN. HICKENLOOFER (R Iowa) recalled that the Senate condemned the late Sen. Me Carthy (R-Wls) for some of his conduct, and said the statement attributed to.Morse "Is far more odious and far more Inconsiderate of the President of the United States than anything Joe McCarthy ever said." ; Morse sat and smiled, ' Sen. Bridges, though far from a 100 per cent Elsenhower man, was all on the President's side Wednesday. He said Morse had said In a speech advocating public power policies that Eisenhower's was "the most political Immoral administration In our ilstory." Several more Republicans put In their criticisms, and several Democrats got up with words In Horse's behalf. Then Morse took the floor himself, ._- · .
