K-(ff, President Truman declared jister- day that. those who denounce his "Pair Deal" program as "alien or dangerous" are "just about 160 years behind the times." The chief executive sought new women recruits for the Democratic Tarty with a campaign-like promise to. press forward with housing, educational aid, expand social security and labor objectives of the 1848 platform. -Ip He asked the women of the coun- vytry to "look beneath the labels to see the facts" and not be "misled . by political slogans."

The President said the Democratic Party offered the women a program of "practical measures," "It is not a blueprint imposed from on high by a little group of theorists," he said. ''Neither Is it a set of platitudes concocted by ' group of corporation lawyers In _ ': smoice-flllsd room. Our program Is 1 «n expression of the desires of the people." • ! He added that this program, "unshakably founded on the principle •; that power of government should ••; be used to promote the genera) .welfare," is "as American as the ; .soil we walk on." ; In saying that those who make '••"outcries" against his proposals as ' "something alien or dangerous" are ;" .160 year's but of date, Mr; Truman ., safd they want the people "to for' get the language of the constitution."

House committee iikby a controversy over the use of '"founds for auxilltry services In par"' ochial as well as public schools.
