PAGE TEH BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER.NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1950 I Dewey Puts Self on Far Side of Republican Fence Of Super-Conservativism By Leonard I.eddington PRINCETON, NJ., April 14. H>)— Thomas E. Dewey put himself on the far side of the fence today away from any of the Republican Party's super-conservative side. The New York governor said his party's record already had been blemished by individuals whom he Rccuscd of hiding selfish motives behind a constant clamor for "free enterprise." Dewey,' who foresook the role of • defeated Presidential candidate for that of a Republican elder ttatesman, concluded his Princeton University lecture series last night with some annoyed reproof of the "free enterprise" pleaders. Dewey said the Republicans made up the party of individual freedom • s opposed to the Democratic Party of big government. But he said the cause of Individual freedom had not always been supported unselfishly by some Republicans. Shout "Free Enterprise" "When such men have shouted about 'free enterprise' they have hot meant 'free enterprise' at all— they have been thinking of their own narrow Interests," the titular head of the Republican Party told & university audience of some 1.000. "From time to time. Individual, unrepresentative members of my party, seldom holding public office, have presumed to regard the rights of labor as inferior to the rights of property," Dewey said. ' But he insisted that "no Republican President—from Abraham Lincoln to Herbert Hoover—ever endorsed so reactionary n position." . He said the GOP could boast today of i long tradition of support of the rights of free labor. Ruthless Wilh Parties Dtwey's talk was scheduled as an academic analysis of the domestic policies of the country's two major political parties, and he was as ruthless with his own as he was with the opposition. He said the choice was between the Democratic Party of big government and the Republican way of Iocs! rule and individual freedom. "Naturally/' he said, "I prefer the Republican approach." Dewey said the Democrats had more than their share of the faults Buically, he aald, It was because Ihey believed that only the federa fovemment could solve the peoples problems and only with federal funds, federal personnel and federal nfcrols. Dewey ttii the Republicans •greed with the Democrats on the need for numerous basic service: t«i*t t: f oTemmeht ihould provide for tt< :people. "I doubt If the most conservative Republican would suggest abandonment of auch concepts as unemployment insurance, collective bprgflin- Jnif, bank deposit insurance, regulation of security exchanges and old »ge and survivors Insurance," he said. Approach Is Different But the difference between the two parties, he said, lay in their respective approach to the solution, of the assorted problems. "There are many routes to each objective," Dewey »ald. "The true liberal will fieefc every good social objective by the safer route, even thcrjgh It may to exert its Influence on the economy mainly through sound mone- .ary and fiscal policies with no direct controls on prices, wages or investments. Such controls, he said, were "the gadgetry of totalitnrian- In a question-and-answer exchange later. Dewey was asked If he might run for President again a :hird time, lie laughed and referred to his last post-election disclaimer and said he had not changed his mind.
