F;AGE TWO (AMLT eotntzeit mwi GOPPIansAtlack On Administralio .r.WhVrry Soys Party Will "Give P«mos * Hill" Thi* Y«ar By Jack tell WASHINGTON, Sept, 16. M"» — Republic*™ who have been calling for ill-out mtlicks on the Truman administration grabbed for the Gt>P campaign reins yesterday on the- strength bt a Pennsylvania special election victory. As an example. Sen. Wherry of Nebraska, the GOP Iloor leader said his party's success .in a trial run In the 26th Pennsylvania dis trict "shors there Is no room for me-tooers and compromisers in next year's "KM toT control of Congress." "•We've got to give the Democrats hell if we expect to win," ..Wherry told a reporter. As flgor leader, Wherry oflen finds himself in the minority even among his Republican Senate col- leacn°-s'in his o'nnrisition to President Truman's domestic and foreign pol'cy proposals. He has contedcd. along with some other party members, thai the Republicans tossed away the presidential election last year because Gov. Thomas E. Dewcy put on a sweetness'- and light campaign in contrast with President Truman's vigorous', stumping. Wherry's hand seems to have been strengthened by the victory of Republican John P. Baylor over Mrs. Robert L. Coifey, Sr., Ihe Democratic candidate. In the Pennsylvania congressional race where the President's p 'gram was a main issue. No Pussyfooting Sen. Hickenlooper (R-la.1, who has voted for far more of the administration's proposals than Wherry, said the Pennsylvania results prove that the Republicans can't win by pussyfooting. "I think the .election demonstrates that when the Republicans meet the Issues quarely and vigorously, they can win," he said.. Saylor talked In his winning campaign about the "regimented semi- police state and the socialistic welfare state philosophy" he said the Truman administration is fostering. Similarly. Hickenlooper said he to going to talk In -its 1950 reelection - campaign against statism, a term he and Republicans generally interpret as a move to substitute paternalistic government for individual enterprise. This Argument will get a workout also in the New York special Senit* election race. This contest begins officially today with major party designation of candidates (or th» November contest to fill the Mat vacated by the resignation of Democratic Senator Robert P. Wagner. '.-.<^- . ..,.,•Sen. Dulles (R-NY)," scheduled to receive the Republican nomination, already has teed otf on what he calls the trend toward .statism on the part of the ^Truman administration.

He had been a deacon in the church for inanv years. Major General Harry Vaughan, The White House, Washington, D.C. My dear General: Like everyone else, I've been read- Ing the carpy comments about you and those supercharged Iceboxes and, frankly, I don't know what all the hollering ts about. In my time, a fellow had to steal a railroad or a hunk of Wyoming to get hi* name In the papers. Nevertheless, everything; considered, it intent be advisable to billion up your beneficence for a while. Or, better still, whenever you feel like doing somebody a favor why don't you— But perhaps I can get my point across better by first telling you a story that's been kicking around for a pas.scl of years. . . . Once upon ago In Buttc, Montana, a prospector known as Lodestone Luke hired a lawyer to bring suit agahist a sourdough named Stubby Jones for claim jumping. The attorney boned up on the case and came to the conclusion that the party of the second part had done wilful damage to the party of the first part by circumventing statute 1495X. Sec. 3, Par. 11. amended Jan. 4. IW\, by counter-claim filed in absentia, with an ipso facto and a tloy-floy. ''This rase is as clear as black- s,trrp mo]a. c .se=." the lawyer said. "I doubt if even the judge will be able to figure it out. but I'll do the beAt I can." "Ya know what. Doc," said Lodestone Lvke. "if the case is lhat ornery, mebbe it mighten be a bad idea to send the jedse a barrel of Mission Range applejack." "Mv dear fellow." snld the lawyer, "the trgal profession operates under a code of ethics which goes back to the days of Solomon. In my opinion .if you were to send such a bribe to His Honor, he would automatically decide the case against you." "This applejack's one-t went y proof." said Luke. 'That would make it all the more automatic." "I gctcba. Doc," said the' prospector. Well. It toofc 21 days to try the case, and by the time the lawyers were finished their objections, reservations, rebuttals and counter- rebuttals, the learned judse looked as bewildered as Victor Moore. "It's my guess that His Honor will reserve judgment and study the case a while before announcing his ac- cision," the attorney whispered as the last witness left the stand. But to everyone's flabbergast- ment. the Judge Immediately decided in favor of Lodestone Luke. A few minutes later, over a victory drink, Luke's lawyer Rot a grip on himself and said, "I must have been in good form today.. Now, about the fee—" 'Glad ya mentioned it," said the prospector. "Ya sure used some purty words, but if ya keep in mind them ethics ya was talkin' about, ya won't charge me ovci much. Mostly on account of It was me. vhat von the ewe." "You . won Uu cue!" Mid the lawyer. "Why, I didn't even e»U you a« » rHneM." "That ya didn't," *ald the pro*-' pector, "but it WM nu who *ent a barrel of M Us Ion Ranie applejack to the Jedge." "I don't believe It." said th« lawyer. "Judge Andrewi U a man of integrity." ' "You tole m« that before," jald Lodtttone Luke. "That'« why I put Stubby's name on the card. ..." Catch on General? What I'm suggesting l.s that the next time you help a fellow let a little lumber for | his racetrack, send along a card Taft." reading, "By courtesy of Senator • Sincerely, Billy ROM (Copyright.

The New Yorker said that Bowron must be the "Innocent victim of a shell game," and that Morrison "must be getting his information from the same bottle as Bowron." '..Morrison said he is asking a whom he accused of offering to foot campaign bills to beat Morrison out of mayoralty.
