Vaccar* PITTSBURGH, Sept. 5. — (AP)—President Truman today unleashed a blistering attack against Hie "selfish interests" opposing his "Fair Deal" program and grimly promised a fight to the finish Tor its enactment. In n scathing speech which apparently set the tone for next year's Democratic Congressional campaigns, Mr. Truman declared trmt this light will succeed despite a "scare word,campaign" Intended to "confuse the people and turn them against their own interests." The President said many of his proposals already progressed in the face of such "trumijed up slogans" as "statism" and "collectivism." These, he sr'-l, were thought up by "a lot of paid, agitators, promoters and publicity experts who make a fat living by frightening the people In the higher Income groups." Asserting that people have always had to fight for progress, Mr. Truman declared "we still have a fight on our hands" against the "selfish forces of reaction and special privilege." , "The people of the United States have been winning that fight for 1GO years," he added.

Disputes Coal Argument As for the argument that th« nation can't afford his proposals, Mr. Truman snid: "Tlie trulh Is—we can't afford not to put these programs into effect. We can afford them, we ought to have them, we will have them."

The chief executive made no reference to the Southern Democratic Congressmen who have teamed up with Northern Republicans to defeat or delay his nlvll rights proposals and other key measures. But he denied flrUly the criticism of "some people" that this Is "do-nothing congress'—a label Mr. Truman plastered on Congress time after time when It was under Republican control. List* BIIJs Passed He offered A.S refutation ». list of measures passed during the present session "over the fierce opposition of the selfish Interests." And while he conceded that the.^e Interests have thus far prevented repeal of the labor-hated Taft- flartley law, h", added this pledge: "That Issue la far from settled. We are golnp to continue to fight for the repeal of that repressive law until It Ls wiped off the statute book.s." One by one. (he President blasted ie \ise of "scare words"—"collcc- vism."
