Have You Asked Yourself "What Is Party Regulation . . . and What Happened to the Democratic Party in Chicago?" Hear This Vital Question Discussed TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 7:15 P. M. Radio Station KERN Blue Network The Program Is Sponsored by the JEFFERSONIAN DEMOCRATS of the Eleven Western States SANTA ANA, Oct. 17. UP>— Governor John W. Bricker declared today that the east should not be allowed to get the "Jump" on the west In reconversion to peace time production. "You have heard it suggested." the Republican candidate for vice- president said in a prepared speech relased by his campaign staff, "that when that time (defeat of Germany) comes, the industries of the east can reconverted to peace time production while you (the west continue to produce tools of war to defeat Japan. War All U. S.'s .lob "I say to you that the winning of the war over Japan is the responsibility of all our country. Any other policy would delay the day of final victory. And it would also impair the economic well-being of this entire nation." The tnsk of reconversion from war to peace manufacturing, the Ohio governor asserted, "like the task of winning the war, must be on a nation-wide basis." Bricker, who earlier had said he was "amazed at the tremendous industrial development" along the Pacific coast, described the west as "one of the greatest assets of our nation." "Twenty-two states west of the Mississippi contain 2,000,000 square miles," he continued. "This is an area greater than all Europe, with the exception of Russia. It is very much greater in natural resources." Many of these resources, Bricker said, "have scarcely been touched" because of this section's remoteness from the industrial areas of the east and because of "our failure to realize the Industrial possibilities of the west." Furthermore, he asserted, this area of the country for 12 years has been without representation in the President's cabinet and without adequate representation in federal agencies. "As a conseqquence,' Bricker declared, "your problems and your needs are either ignored or unknown or are woefully misunderstood in Washington." Stake in West Bricker expressed the opinion that as a result of the war, the entire nation would have a stake In the economic and industrial development of the west. In a speech last night at San Bernardino, Bricker said that the federal government, through its financial grants, as "usurping" state and local authority, which he described as a trend that could lead to "political domination" of local governments. Bricker will spe.V" over a nationwide radio network (Blue) from San Dieq-o at 8 p. m., Pacific war time, tonight. F. D. R. 's Experience Needed, Truman Tells L. A. Crowd By ERXEST WITH TRI'.MAN ICX ROl.'TE TO SAX FKANC1SCO. Oct. 17. (^—Senator Harry S. Truman sped toward San .Francisco today on the second lap of his transcontinental campaign tour after telling a l^os Angeles crowd the nation should retain President Roosevelt's "experience and leadership." The Democratic vice-presidential candidate planned only a brief informal speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, in contrast with what he called a major political address last night. In this, at the Shrine auditorium in Los Angeles, he declared that under a President like Governor Thomas R. Dewey, the Republican standard hearer, "We would have set our sights too low" and "no one can even estimate how many lives of our young men that would have meant." "Do you want that kind of leadership in the prosecution of the war against Japan?" he asked. He prefaced these remarks by saying that when President Roosevelt In 1940 requested 50,000 planes, Governor Dewey had said: "Experts estimate that it would take at least four years to accomplish this." "Inspired by the President's leadership, we are building airplanes at the rate of 100.000 a year," Truman continued, "twice the number Mr. Dewey said was impossible." Asserting Dewey is a "fence straddler" on foreign policy who was "flirting with the isolationists and currying the political support of the It. VACCARO Hearsts and MeCormioks" when Roosevelt was demonstrating "leadership and courage' 1 in foreign affairs. Truman continued: "\Ve believed Hurding's carefully worded platitudes. This time let's now ask the Republican candidate straight out, 'Does he repudiate the Hearsts and the MoCormicks, and all they stand for? Is he willing to tell the whole tribe of isolationists, including the eight Republican senators to whom Senator Ball referred, that he wants none of their support?' "Can you afford," Truman asked, "to take a chance on a fence strad- dler with a record on foreign affairs like that of the Republican candidate when your future and that of your children is at stake?" PENSION PLAN'S. COST TOLD. $720,000,000 PER YEAR NEEDED IF APPROVED SACRAMSNTO, Oct. 17. CW— State Director of Social Welfare Charles Wollenberg, told Governor Warren today that If the $60 at 60 years of age pension initiative is passed at the November general election the minimum cost will be $720,000,000 per year. This, Woellenberg said In a letter to the governor, would be $40,000,000 more than was spent for old age »e- i curlty In the entire United States during the past year. Answering a request of the governor for cost estimates on the pen-" slon plan, No 11 on the November 7 ballot, "Wollenberg also contended: Approximately 1,000,000 people of BO years or over would be ellgmle in addition to an unknown number permanently handicapped or crippled. Because the plan Is not approved by the federal government, the state would lose between $43.000,000 and $4fi.000,000 in annual federal grants. The Imposition of a 3 per cent gross transactions tax to finance the $fiO payment would increase the cost of living "from 6 to possibly 12 per cent." In addition to the amount neceg. sary to pay the cost of pensions the state would have additional expense in processing claims and for general administration.
