- PAGE SDC BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APR!!, 12, 1950 Truman Ends Fifth Year In Office in Good Mood; Prepares to Attack GOP ) By Jack Bell j WASHINGTON. April 12. OT— President Truman ends his fifth >«ar In office today in what his friends describe as a confident, 'hippy-warrior mood. 5 The sun-tanned president, fresh JTrom a vacation In Florida, appar- intly Is ready to carry to the people V counter-offensive against Repurj- Oican attacks on his secretary of State and other GOP assaults. L Picturing the President as !n vig- fjioiK health, Senator Lucas of II- •gnols, the Democratic leader, gave »" reporter this description of Mr. Truman: '-"He Is confident and In a happy frame of mind. He thinks conditions throughout the country are good. He thinks world problems arc not Insolvable. He is ready to light lor his program." A Republican reaction to Mr. Truman was expressed by Senator Brewster of Maine, chairman of his party's senatorial campaign committee. A I-on£ Life ''We wish ilr. Truman—but no his program—a long life," Brcwslc laid. "We still consider him th Republicans' best asset. -• "We think it is obvious that h it going to campaign for a Tr'umni Congress, since the Democratic 81s Congress has been no better, froi his standpoint, than the Rcpubli can S0(.h. We welcome him int the battle on those terms." -; Just about the time he Is cele brallng his Mth birthday next Ma J Mr. Truman will be heading west ward for the first political stump Ing of A campaign patterned nftc his surprisingly successful drive fi ie presidency In 1948. Friends and Foes Ajiree The President's friends and [oes •rcc generally that this toiir Into ic middle nnd far west—ending ith a party rnlly in Chicago May >—wil give the country some Idea hat to expect tronl this year's ampaign. Again it will be Harry S. Truman Ikins to the people—but there lay be a difference. This time he isn't the underdog i a political campaign. He lias, n election victory over the Rcpub- icans hanging from his bolt. The President can't go all out ils nttacks on Congress as lie tile gainst the Repiiblican-conlrollcc Olh. This time it is n Democrat! iongress—even though It is at time dominated by Republicans nnd Sol hern Democrats who oppose mucl of his program. To Defend Acheson Mr. Truman apparently wi! ,ake a vigorous defense of Sec retary of Slate Achc.son and th State Department, now under ho rirc from the Republicans. In thi nowever, he will be on the dctcnslv and not on the offensive as he was In 1018. The president will be able to point to enactment of part of what he calk his "Fair Deal" program. But much of It remains bogged down in the halls of Congress. Some of the promises he inaclc in 1048 aren't much nearer lullfillment than they were then. How Mr. -Triiman handles himself within the next few months may have much bearing on the outcome of the November elections. He will be watched closely by friend and foe alike.

He explained that he initial anouncement, showed the county quota at $20.000 but that th« state heanuartcrs had later changed the voluntary quota to $15,OOC Almost $400 was collected over the quota. In his announcement made today Mr. Harrison said that the campaign was the most successful to be completed in the county's history. He said that its success was due to Ihc leadership of campaign chairman, the Rev. Harvey T. Kidd, and efforts ol other solicitors and the citizens. In connection with the drive, he explained that $60,000 in asslst- ty residents by the foundation last ance was given to Mississippi Conn- year when the county was hit by a polloinelltls epidemic that took several lives, and left others crippled and requiring further treatment.

He said the J3,312,450,- 000 aid bill therefore would get priority over an FEPC measure. Senator Wherry o! Nebraska, the Republican leader, protested tha w»s a purely political move to stall action on FEPC (Fair Employment Practices Commission) legislation at a time of Democratic primaries In Florida »nd Alabama. Wherry said the Democrats were rylng to avoid party strife, know- ng that a filibuster would be promptly started by southerners If he FEPC legislation were brought ip.

He explained that many of those fighting in Israel were not Jews, but that 11 of- the 32 in his .sciiml- ron had been killed in Israel after escaping unharmed from similar buttles In World War.II. He said that obsolete and bad equipment, inadequate medical care and impoverished methods made tragic aspects of the Israeli battles, which could be remedied by more funds.

Original source of the gas would be the Texas-Eastern Transmission Company's "Big Inch" pipeline. Most of last night's relatively brief session was consumed by a debate QII addition of parking meters on side streets. This debate terminated In a successful vote to Install meters on Broadway (Fourth Street) from Ash to the alley north of Main and on Second Street from Main to Walnut. Propoul Modified The original proposal was to include all of Broadway from Ash to Walnut but the resolution was modified to exclude the areas in front of the Post office and the Hotel Noble.

Nash, J. Wilson Henry and Leslie Moore voted for the added meters. Jimmie Sanders, who argued against the move cast the only "no" vote. Alderman Jodie L. Nabers >nd Harry Taylor abstained, saying they wanted time to obtain public opinion on the matter.

IF YOU had in your hand a list of all the people m the world who own and ride in Cadillac cars, we thmk you d agree that you could search in vain for another list of equal size-and greater distinction. s Cadillac is the great common meeting ground for the world's distinguished people. Wherever the car is available, it has become almost the automatic companion for outstanding personal achievement. And yet, such is the magic of Cadillacs manufacturing ingenuity, that this internationally distinguished car is available at. * price which makes it a great practical value. The lowest-priced Cadillac model-the lovely "Sixty-One"-actually costs less than certain models of numerous other makes of cars. - The gre'at Cadillac engine is so economical to operate that gasoline mileage actually approaches that^of the smallest, most economical cars. In a recent officially- supervised economy run, three Cadillac «« averaged better than lutnty-lwo milts to the gallon jor 7*1 miles'. And there is simply no practical limit to the car's endurance. It is merely a question of how long you wish to keep it and drive it. The full l.fespan of a Cadillac has never been accurately measured. In view of all this, isn't it the part of wisdom to add your own the list of those who own this distinguished car? • ' .n This is a wonderful year for moving up to Cadillac. The car has never been so beautiful, so Umir.ous-so utterly thrilling to ride in and drive. It is an everlasting satisfaction to utilize and possess. Better come in and talk it over.
