PAGE TEN BL1THEVTLT.E, (ARKi) COURIER NEWS' Quickened Probes Follow Truman's 'Dirty Polities' Cry WASHINGTON, Dec.13. (AP>—President Truman's assertion that election campaigns In five states were "as low as I've ever seen" quickened Investigations underway today by the Senate Campaign Committee. Chairman Gillette (D-Iowa) told* a reporter inquiries already have been made In Utah and North Carolina, two slates mentioned by the President In a Dec. 7 letter made public last night by Rep. 'Hebert (D-La). ' : The Iowa Senator said that Louis• lana, Illinois and lindlana—the oth- • er states the President cited—arc .-being covered in s nation-wide survey by the committee ol campaign • costs and circulation of "defama- ..kiry" literature. Hebert, a frequent critic of administration policies, had written the President suggesting Mr. Truman set aside a Sunday before Christinas and call on the people to pray in their churches for guidance of the nation In "the Gethsemane of our existence." Mr. Truman replied by sending I':-bert a copy of his Thanksgiving proclamation, saying he believed "that effectively answers your suggestion." Annoyed Again EDSON Continued from page g Harley M.

Now freedom of speech Is a valuable thing and the unlimited and unrestricted debate In the Senate is something to be cherished. In this Instance, it Is expressing what many of the people at home nre thinking. They are writing and wiring their congressmen'and senators in Washington In increasing num- bera, asking for the resignation of Secretary Acheson. This demand now takes on the pro|>ortlons of an organized campaign. A few Republicans—not for attribution nor quotation—quietly urged :Thcn, in (he latest of a scries of letters evidently dashed off in a moment .of annoyance, Mr. Truman added: "'•"-."I am extremely sorry that the sentiments expressed in your -letter i were not thought of before Novcm- ! her seventh, when the campaign In your state. Utah. North Carolina. Illinois and fndiann was carried on in a manner that was as low as I've ever seen and I've been in this game . since 1908." Hebert wrote Mr. Truman In reply that he was "stunned." and he • added: "It is indeed exceedingly regrettable that you failed to grasp the real purpose and Intent of my sug- gestidn, but it is even more regrettable 'that, you saw fit "to gratuitously inlcct political distemper in your reply." Mr. Truman's remarks about the level of the campaigns In the five state.? led 'Senator Oapehnrt.
