Within Party By MERRDIAX SMITH By tfflHal Press NEW YORK UP) Dwight D. Eisenhower today described the "newest 5 per center" case of Col. Lawrence Westbrook as the latest example of "crookedness" within the Democratic Party. Eisenhower brought up the case In a block by block bid for big city votes. Speaking in Lower Manhattan after 'an earlier appearance in Staten Island, the General ripped into the case of the Democratic National Committee staff member who was fired Wednesday night. He did not name Westbrook, who was dismissed by the party for participating in a $9,000,000 government contract negotiation. Eisenhower brought up the case after hammering repeatedly at the Korean issue following receipt of a letter from Gen. James A. Van Fleet, 8th Army commander in Korea. Van Fleet said the South Korean army was in "apple pie order" and Eisenhower said it was proof that his plan to let South -Koreans do more fighting would work. Eisenhower also accused the Democrats of spreading "just plain lies" about him because they are "really afraid that they'll lose a lot of cushy jobs down in Washington." But he said day of reckoning Is here and they see the handwriting on the wall." After the Staten Island speech, he returned across the harbor to continue his seven-speech schedule in the New York area, winding up tonight at a rally in Madison Square Garden. Eisenhower armed himself with, "ammunition" from Gen. Jame's A. Van Fleet as he kept pushing Korea as the top issue. The ammunition was supplied to the Republican presidential candidate in the form of a letter which Van Fleet, Eighth Army eommander in Korea, recently wrote to a friend in Washington, Maj. Gen. Orlando C. Rally Tonight Eisenhower Indicated he would refer to the letter repeatedly in winding up a three-day stand jn the New York metropolitan area, which ends with a five-hour rally tonight at Madison Square' Garden, to support his plan or re-jducing American casualties in Korea.

Martin today the Justice Department to investigate the settlement of a tax claim for $203,000. Martin said in a letter lo Atty. Gen. James McGranery that the claim was against the late William Fox, film and theater executive, for 1935 and "all prior years." The senator said the claim involved taxes, penalties and interest and that from Information he acquired "it would appear that the government could have recovered the entire amount." Martin said that at the time of the settlement in 1941 the FBI was of the opinion that an important stock transfer was not made until four years after Fox had said it was made. And, Martin said, the Internal Revenue Bureau knew of the FBIs findings. Accepted By Diddle Martin said the compromise settlement was accepted by the then Attorney General Francis Biddle, on Dec. 5, 1941, and the money was paid to the collector of Internal revenue in New York on Feb. 10, 1912. Informed of Martin's letter to McGranery, Commissioner of Internal Revenue John Dunlap released a letter to Chairman Walter F. George (D-Ga) of the Senater Finance Committee, of which Martin Is a member. Dunlap's lengthy letter, dated June 4, was similar 'n content to Martin's letter. It said that, before' the compromise settlement was accepted, the revenue bureau (Continued on page 22, column 7) County Board Meeting Opens Here Saturday Adoption Of 1953 Budget And Equalization Report Are On The Agenda For Annual Meeting The annual 16-day fall session of the Sheboygan County Board of Supervisors will get under way Saturday, County Clerk Ernst L.

Va. Sen. Joseph McCarthy said Wednesday that so far there have been no answers to the charges he made Monday night about Gov. Adlal Stevenson and his aides. "So far, all the Democrats have Raid is Mies, They haven't answered any of the documentation," McCarthy told 500 persons at a Republican rally here. In his Monday night speech, carried from Chicago over a na tion-wide radio and television network, McCarthy accused the Democratic presidential nominee of giving "aid to Communist causes." Wednesday he reviewed much of that speech, particularly his attacks on Bernard DeVoto and Arthur Schlesinger listed by McCarthy as Stevenson speech writers. McCarthy repeated his charge that DeVoto, In a magazine arti cle, "advised the American peo ple not to give the FBI any In formation about Communists." II also said again that Schles Inger, writing in the New York Times, had advocated giving Communists freedom of political action and permitting them to teach in universities. The senator ridiculed replies by DeVoto and Schlesinger that they were quoted out of context. In a speech Wednesday nignt at Clarksburg, McCarthy continued a GOP attack on what Republicans have called Ken. Kil core's va. recora on Communism. "I don't say Kllgore is a Com munist. I don't say he is a pro communist," said McCarthy. "He's been placing with Commu nlst causes too long." Weather Wisconsin: partly cloudy tonight and Friday. Warmer tonight and in southeast Friday.

Col. Lawrence Westbrook, Texas businessman and former New Deal administrator, was summarily fired from the staff of the Democratic National Committee by Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell. Mitchell said Wednesday night that he dismissed Westbrook immediately upon learning that he was involved in a deal whereby he and associates would receive 5 per cent on a $9,000,000 contract for tungsten which the government granted Compania At-lantica, a Portuguese firm. This would have amounted to 450,000. However, General Services Ad ministrator Jess Larson said he cancelled the contract Monday after receiving reports the firm was buying the tungsten in the world market instead of deliver-' ing it from its own miles as agreed. He said he "did not know" that Westbrook had any sort of "contingent fee" deal with the firm. No federal money was actually paid out on the contract before it was cancelled, Larson sad.

The "real forgotten man" is the American soldier fighting In Korea, Nixon said, "and let never forget that those 500,000 boys have never had it so bad." WASHINGTON (UP) The Democrats hammered away at Sen. Richard M. Nixon today, re peating their demands that the Republican vice presidential nominee make public his income tax returns. Democratic National Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell, in an angry exchange of statements with Nixon, accused the young Call-fornian of "still hiding" his "financial facts" from the Amer ican people behind a "smokescreen." Mitchell first flung down the challenge in a statement Wednes day calling upon GOP presidential nominee Dwight D. Eisen hower to "insist" that Nixon pro duce his Income tax returns and explain Democratic charges that he and his family own $250,000 worth of real estate. Nixon fired back from Los Angeles that the1 financial statement he made In his recent na tionwide radio-television speech was "taken from the full Income tax returns of my wife and Nixon also branded as a "lie" the statement made in the Demo cratic National committee weekly newspaper this week that he and his family own 000 worth of real estate which was not discussed in Nixon's much-publicized broadcast Truman Hits Republicans In Michigan Talk Republican Advice Likely To Weaken Defenses, Let Communism Take Over, He Declares By ERNEST B.

Mr. Truman was introduced by Sen. Blair Moody (D-Mich.) after a brief talk by Gov. G. Mcnnen Williams. The President called for the election of both of them. He said he understood it whs the first time a president in office ever visited Muskegon. Invaded Chicago Mr. Truman's move into Michigan followed a two-speech inva sion of Chicago where he poured ridicule on GOP nominee Dwight D. Eisenhower for his "easy" solution "for everything." In a plain reference to Eisenhower, he told an overflow dinner crowd of the AFL Cook County League for Political Education, which gave him an ear-splitting welcome: "No general order is going to eliminate our problems. No superman is going to solve our difficulties for us. And anybody who poses and talks like a superman is just a plain fraud." He tore into Eisenhower for Official For 'Deal' Disputing Larson's account Hill said government officials were formally notified months ago that Westbrook stood to profit personally from the con tract. He said papers were filed with the GSA to show that West brook and Heinz Pulvermann, of Rye, N. were sales agents for the Portuguese firm and were to get up to 5 per cent of any government contract they negotiated.

Adlai E. Stevenson today as he "poured it on" Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for what he called a cynical search for votes in pro posals for ending the Korean War. This spurt In spirits came as Democratic leaders sniffed a possible victory next Tuesday from what they interpret as a last-minute surge of sentiment toward Stevenson. Stevenson himself appeared more confident and was predicting victory more and more in his speeches. Their big doubt, however, was whether the surge had come too late. Large Crowd Last night Stevensor5 climaxed a day of rousing ovations in Pennsylvania with a speech in jam-packed Convention Hall.
