TRTDAT, AFML T, •LIIRETTLLE '(AWC.T COURIER NEW! PAAB Th« Nation TWayi Wh«t Will Truman Do? Truman Has Problem After GOP'Beating' By Juan SUrtow WASHINGTON, April 6. (AP) —I It's going to b« interesting to see'. ghat President Truman does, if Mrthlng, to offset the battering rns admlnlsratton ha* received from the Republicans. This \3 an important year for Mr. "Truman. It's an election year, when the people will have to vote lor all 435 members ol the House and 36 ol the 9« senators. Although right now the Democrats have » majority In both houses, Mr. Truman's program—at least the part of it which affects' us it home—hasn't been doing well. Honoring Bill Rapped His plan for middle-Income housing got knocked on the head. His hopes that Congress will continue federal rent control when the law ends next June look pretty dim. His Civil Rights program Is getting no place fast. HU desire to wipe out the Tart-Hartley labor law looks hopeless. . . . ' So much for his program. Meanwhile, his administration has been bludgeoned by some of the Republicans, led by Senator McCarthy, Wisconsin Republican. McCarthy charged the State Department was padded with Com- munisis or pro-Communists, and he named some names. Tho'se accused by him, or some of them, have denied his charges and called him . some unoretty names, including "liar." But McCarthy has conducted a kind of triple attack: t i attacksd people, he atacked 'Slate Department, and he attacked the wisdom and leadership of the secretary of State. Dean Acheson. He called Acheson a "pompous diplomat with a phony British accent." Tnp Republicans Join And some of the top Republicans In the Senate — Taft of Ohio, Bridges of New Hampshire, Wherry of Nebraska—have joined In lambasting the State Department, particularly for the way it has handled policy toward China. (Not all the Republicans go along with McCarthy. Some, like former Secretary of War Stimson, have denounced his performance, and former Senator John Foster Dulles wrote to Ache.w>n that "public dissemination of rumors and; suspicions encourages our enemies.") Mr. Truman, vacationing Jn Florida, opened uo at a news conference there with trie statement: "The greatest asset that trie, Kremlin has is the partisan pttemot In Ak Senate to~_sabotage th^binar^ SBnn foreign policy ol the United States." McCarthy demanded—and so did the Senate subcommittee investigating his charges—that Mr. Truman let the subcommittee see the secret and confidential files on the people named by McCarthy. The senator said the files would back up his charges. Mr. Truman refused, as olher Presidents before him have refused, to let ollt secret files. Mr. Truman has told his loyalty! review board to check over once again some of the people named by McCarthy, and report back to him. It's poslble Mr. Truman will have' some statement on this .report when he gets it. CARUTHERSVILLE NEWS By lota Doucliuw — Phone 389-J TO BUDGET JOB-Elmcr B.
