PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARKJ COUBTER NEWS JTTOAY, WAT 19, Taft Says Charge of Political Immorality of Administration Stands for Lack of Refutation By EDWIN B. HAAKIN'SON WASHINGTON, May 19.

The President, meeting the press for the first time since his cross- country speaking trip, said he had not listened to Taft mi a nationwide radio hookup Tuesday night nor read Taft's speech.

Informed of this at the Senate, Taft told a reporter: "He does not answer It, so it .stands undisputed." Mr. Truman, however, differed sharply with some of Taft's comments about "obstructionists," a label the President used on his Congressional opponents in the big Democratic jubilee last Monday at Chicago. i : He said he wanted both Democratic and Republican "obstructionists" removed from Congress. He explained that an obstructionist was against everything suggested for the welfare of the people.

Democrats and RepubNcans to Clash: This Time in a Basebofl (?) Game Tlv ARTHUR EDRON WASHINGTON, May 19. (,f,_Tl]c Democrats piny the Republicans to- niRiit in what some humorist hns called a baseball game, and n Senator will be in the lineup for the first time in the history of this Congressional contest. The St'nator: Harry P. Cain CR- WnslO. He will pitch, more or lens. Confronted with this situation, the Democrats have done their best. Rep, Smatchcrs of 1 Florida, n hero of other Congressional ball sames. defeated Senator Pepper in the primaries. Which caused Rep. Harris CD- Ark), tile Democrats' manager, to announce: "Don't underrate tills fellow. Smathers Is hotter than Pepper." Everybody laughed, Congressional humor being what it is. The tall, husky Smnthers. by the way, may be the best hitter on either club. This doesn't mean he's any Babe Ruth. But he can hit a ball as far as the outfield, and since Congressional outfielders usually bold a committee meeting on every fly ball, Smathers is n potential home run king. Whether Senator Cain can stop Senator-to-be Smathers remains to be seen. If Cain can't, maybe the othe; 1 Republican pitchers — Glenn Davis of Wisconsin and Corbett of Pennsylvania — can get the job done. The Democrats have assembled quite a pitching staff, but the fact remains '.hat they usually rise or fall with the efforts of Don Wheeler, a onetime school teacher from Alma. Ga, Wceelf.r is a pretty Fair pitcher. But he has one weakness: he gets tired. The Democratic policy has been to allow Wheeler to pitch until he scLs weary, run In a sub until the Republicans catch up. and then put Wheeler back In again. This isn't according to baseball law. but It Congress can't change a law. who can? Incidentally, no matter who wins, the ball playing Congressmen wli: have done their good turn for the day. The game is sponsored by the Washington Evening Star. Th money goes to the summer carnj fund for underprivileged children. An "Italian recipe calls for baking potatoes and truffles in layers.
