i tr ^ I ; ti 4, GOP Leader Hits Spending Policy PresidentV St. Poul Speech Brings Blost At Mounting U.S. Debt . Bj Jvk Bril WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. (AP) — Guy Gabrielson, Republican national chairman, said today the Truman brand of government is taking more from the American people than it costs them (o eat and is piling up debts for tlwlr children to pay. Gabrlelson cracked back In a ifatement at what he called President Truman's "vilification" o( the record of the GOP 80th Congress in an address at St. Paul last night. The President's address—calling o«i lawmakers to enact his fair deal - program as a "stanch shield" against Communism—and Gabriclson's reply were preliminary firing in e. 1950 Congressional election campaign that Is beginning to look lite one of the hottest in history. i Reports from Mr. Truman's homebound train zaid he was so pleased with the reception he had on his trl pto the twin cities that he is more" Inclined than ever to make a • full-fledged stumping totir next year in behalf of Congressional candidates who will tack his program. There are signs, too, that foreign policy may yet develop into a. major Issue. The foreign policy split among Republicans points thai way. j Cites Jefferson ioabrielson said President Truman had talked a' lot at St. Paul about Thomas Jefferson. He suggested that Mr.'Truman study Jefferson's assertion that— j"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from Injuring one another, -which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of Induslry aid improvement, and shall not take'from the .mouth of labor the bread it has earned—this is the sum o'f good government." : X3abrielson said: • ^ ;v ; ;' ; That is a definition which might; with great profll to the nation, be pondered by the head of an administration which is taxing the Americaiv people every year lo a sum greater than the nation's total food bill, and-which^still unsfitis- jievi—is fobbing our children and frand T children \ and great-grandchildren of Income as yet-unearned by Increasing the national debt at the rate of literally millions of dollars ; every 2< hours." ..-...'• : ' .'-Mr. Truihah told a :' Minnesota Centennial Exposition audience In , St. Paul last night that the way to beat totalitarianism of every kind Is to provide full'education, health, 'security and'-civil rights for all .
