MOUNNT VERNON, ILLINOIS — WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1952 25c PER WEEK BY CARRIER- STEVENSON CAPTIVE Dixon Is Democratic Nominee For Governor BARREH IS BEATEN BY CLOSE VOTE Bifter Fight Ends, Governor Stevenson Is Pleased. Paschen Nominated for Lieutenant Governor. MISS CHICAGO >4 By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, lU. — L>. Gov. Siierwood Dixon, winner of one or tlie biUcrest Illinois Democratic faction figiits in recent years, will head tine party's state ticket in tlie November election. Di.\on, 56, was chosen Tuesday by the Democratic State Central Committtee as Governor Stevenson's replacement, defeating Secretary of State Edward J. Barrett in a close race. Dixon immediately made overtures to heal the scars left by the heated row. He told newsmen "Barrett and I have been close friends for 22 years and we're going to be for the rest of our lives." Barrett issued a less conciliatory statement, which said: "I am deeply grateful to those members of the State Central Committee who unselfishly stood by their convictions and supported my candidacy in the face of possible reprisals. I have repeatedly said I would accept the decision of the State Central Committee. I do." For lieutenant governor, the committee non.inated Herbert C. Paschen of Hubbards Woods, a Chicago suburb. He is 47 and a Cook County Superior Court Master in chancery. Paschen fills the spot vacated by Di .Kon 's advancement. ' Barrett remains on the ticket as a candidate for reelection. Selection of Dixon by the member state committee — first time in Illinois history it has named the gubernatorial nominee —climaxed a battle that opened after Stevenson became the Democratic presidential nominee. Stevenson said he favored Dixon as his successor and the governor's lieutenants and Cook County leaders picked up the ball to line up support. Although 13 of the committee men supported Barrett in the show down, he lost to Dixon by a vote of 469,616 to 425,375. Most of Dix on's backing came from Chicag committeemen, who had the bulk of the votes, Each committee member # was entitled to tlie number of Demo cratic votes cast in his congres sional district at the April Pri mary. Stevenson was in Washington for a session with President Tru man and the Cabinet at the time Dixon was chosen. Upon his ar rival back in Springfield Tuesday night, he said he was "extremely pleased" that Dixon had made the grade. Dixon said he hadn't talked to Stevenson and was "going to try to keep out of his hair," "I will fight my own battles as well as I can without bothering him." lie added. Dixon j-evealcd to reporters that Stevenson had not asked him to become a candidate for governor. "I left it pretty much in the hands of the committee," Dixon said. In a statement, the new Democratic nominee said that "while am quite aware of my limitations 1 still am not afraid of the job." "1 have been closely associated with Governor Stevenson during the last four years. We believe in the same things. His policies are my policies. They require high standards in the performance of public service but the people of Illinois deserve and expect the best." Dixon, whose home is in Dixon, was elected to his first major office in 1948 as lieutenant governor. In that capacity he presided over the state Senate and sat in for Stevenson when he was absent from the state. Paschen, Dixon's running mate, is board chairman of the Glencoe National Bank and is widely known in Masonic and Shrine circles. He has been active in Democratic politics for a long time and is well known to both Stevenson and Dixon. Dixon said he was "highly pleased" over Paschen's selection, adding that "if I had a candidate for lieutenant governor I couldn't have picked a better one." Williain G. Stratton, the Republican nominee for governor, made this brief comment on Dixon's nominatioif: "Once more the peope do not have a choice of selecting the standard bearers in the Democratic party." Prior to his election as lieutenant governor, Dixon held two minor offices — on the Dixon school board and the Democratic State Central Committee . He is an attorney and law part- RED SCHEME TO WARP BOY SCOUTS REPORTED Attempt to Infiltrate Scout Movement Described to Senate Investigators by Self-Styled Former Communist.

By Asseeialcd Press MARION, 111. — Congressman Bishop (R-Ill,) said Tuesday that the government is considering whether to build up a supply of poisonous gas to be stockpiled as a safeguard against chemical warfare by any potential enemy. Bishop of Carterville, said the Crab Orchard area in Southern Illinois is being considered as a possible site for such a plant. The government owns 22,000 acres, site of the war time Illinois ordnance plant. Bishop made the statement on poisonous gas in commenting on Illinois' futile efforts to gain a billion dollar atomic project won by Ohio. He said also that a Southern Illinois site remains under consideration for a proposed synthetic fuels plant. A pilot plant is in operation at Louisiana, Mo. He said whether a new fuels plant is started depends on the government decision on lettnig contracts for synthetic fuel and coal by products.

By Asisciatsd Prats WASHINGTON.—A Communist scheme to infiltrate the Boy Scout movement and feed its youngster- members "communism with sugar coating" was described in sworn testimony made public today by Senate investigators. The internal security subcommittee in a report to the Senate termed is part of a Moscow- inspired plan to warp generations of teen-agers to the Kremlin's views, in the schools, colleges, churches and your organizations. The I 'eport includes a transcript of sworn testimony given last March 5 by Harvey M. Matusow of Dayton, O,, a self-styled former Communist now an agent of the Ohio Commission on Un-American Activities. Matusow said the Communists, after a futile effort in the 1930s to undermine the Scout movement, switched to the infiltration plan, under which they hoped to mix secret Red agents among the Scouts. "I might cite the example of Don West," Matusow said, naming West as a Baptist clergyman and Communist organizer in Georgia who formerly lived at Bethel, O. Referring to Ohio Un-American Commission hearings, Matusow testified: "I am taking this from the testimony of John and Martha Edston, and they stated that Mr. West had seven churches under his jurisdic tion, ^and .|i Boy Scout troop was "organized, ih each of the'churches and his plan was to indoctrinate! "I met him (West) at a meeting of the Communist party of 1951.' The subcommittee published photographic copies of Communist literature Matusow said was used in 1930 and later in an effort to sot up a Communist-led organiza tion known as "Young Pioneers' as a rival to'the Boy Scouts. "The Boy Scouts is an organiza^ tion for capitalist wars": read captions emblazoned on the covers of this literature, "Smash the Boy Scouts Join the Young Pioneers The document was larded with slogans that "Boy Scouts are for bosses' wars" and "Boy Scouts take part in murder of striking workers." Matusow said that as a Com munist he saw a high-powered plan evolved to infiltrate high schools, community and even church clubs, and labor unions He termed Scout infiltration part of this plan. Another witness, Herbert Rom erstein of Brooklyn, N. Y., told of being recruited into the Commun ist-fron^ as a high school student at the age of 15V2. Romerstein said he finally divorced himself from communism. He said Communist youth work first was handled through the Young Communist League, then through American Youth for De mocracy, and finally split into two .new fronts. One of these Romerstein said is "the Young Progressives of America ... a broad youth organ ization that could rope in many young people who didn't know what communism was . . . The idea is to get people who are pretty green." CITY SCHOOLS IN MT. Y. OPEK SEPTEMBER 2 STEVENSON VISIT HURT AND HELPED Early Registration Scheduled for Kindergarten, Junior High Pupils.

TAX ASSESSMENT (Continued on pat* two) The 1952 personal tax assess ments for Mt. Vernon township will be reviewed for the next ten days in Room 1 at the Jefferson county court house. The Board of Review, collector and assessor, today advised taxpayers that "now is the time to make complaints regarding your assessment, which is payable next spring." They pointed out that any error or adjustment should be brought before the Board at this time in- tead of when the collector's books are opened for payment. The license department of the state of Illinois has furnished a ist of the cars registered by Jefferson county residents and the ^jessor's office is processing them. L. E. Gowler, Mt. Vernon township assessor, said that several cases have been found where persons have failed to report their car as personal property and notices are being forwarded to them. He said he expects to be kept "rather busy" when the taxpayers start answering the notices because failure to report and sign the schedule in a given time will cost the taxpayer an extra 50 per cent penalty. Taxpayers were also reminded that dogs have been listed with the pei-sonal property assessment and that "now is the time to complain if persons have been charged with owning the wrong kind of dog," No certificates of error can be issued at tax paying time. Assessor Gowler said that "It is up to each of us to report anyone who is evading the assessor or his deputies, whether wilfully or otherwise. When each person of the township pays according to his property the burden becomes easier for each la^y abiding citizen." The Mt. Vernon city schools will open Tuesday morning, September 2nd, it was announced today by Supt. J. L. Buford. Junior High students and kin dergarten children will register ear y.

Conference Wifh Truman, Cabinet Sofyed Problems Buf Gave the GOP Some More Ammunition. By Associated Press Adiai E. Stevenson's White House visit with President Truman may iiave both helped and hurt his presidential cause: It probably solved some campaign worries — such as Truman's agreement to take orders in the battle ahead — but it gave Dwight D. Eisenhower ammunition which the Republican candidate promptly fired at his Democratic opponent. Stevenson made a flying visit to Washington Tuesday for talks with the President, his Cabinet and top military leaders, and returned to Springfield, III. with a firmer grip on his campaign command. From now on, it is up to Stevenson to decide what Truman will do in the presidential campaign — and when. The President is said to have offered to help in any way possible, but added: "It is up to you." The conferences with Truman a)id his Caljinel, and briefings on the. international situation by the Pentagon's top brass, touched off Eisenhower's shai-pest attack on the Democrats so far. Eisenhower, in a written statement issued in Denver, said the White House visit shows the Truman administration is determined to continue its policies through a hand-picked successor. He said these "implications' were raised: 1. Tliat the President is thinking of using federal government resources to influence voters in the election. 2. An implied decision to involve non-political military and national security* personnel in a political campaign "in which they have no part." 3. That the Democratic party would not change its policies if given another four years "to control our destinies." Eisenhower said, "The American people want a change—'' not just a change of names and faces, but a complete change in government and policies. He said Stevenson's election would not provide such a change. The vice presidential candidates got into the political act too: Sen. Richard Nixon of Califor- ma, Eisenhower's running mate, told a Denver news conference the White House meeting was proof Stevenson is "part and parcel of the 'Truman gang.",He called the meeting "a fatal mistake" for the Democrats, Sen. John Sparkinan of Alabama, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, attended the White House conferences and said later there was a "complete understanding and meeting of the ^i^^^'f U -A m 1 TRUMAN TALKS WITH NOMINEES Sen, John Sparkman of Alabama leans over for a closer look as President Truman^ (left) and Gov.

The Federal - State Agriculture Departments assessed weather damage today and also made their first soybean forecast this season. The corn yield per acre was set at 56 bushels compared to 57 in July. A year ago the final yield was 55 bushels. The 10 year average (1941-50) is 51 mushels. Hot, dry .weather seriously damaged scattered southern acreages which can now produce only poor yields. Disease and insects have caused relatively light in,jury. All ears were tasseled by Aug. 5, a 10 day advance over last year. Soybean production was forecast at 82,000,000 bushels. This compares with 95,000,000 last year and a 10 year average of 74,000,000. Well established before the dry spell, the beans stood the moisture scarcity better than corn. Soybeans are expected to produce 23,5 bushels per acre. The wheat crop was estimated at 45,000,000 bushels, compared with 33,000,000 a year ago. Although the figure is two per cent off the July estimate, it is still the largest crop since 1931, Oats suffered a sharp cut, with production estimated at 125,000,- By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111,, — Here is how members of the Democratic State Central Committee voted Tuesday in choosing Lt.

PASCHEN SAYS HE'S SURPRISED BY NOMINATION • ^ Democrotic Lieutenont' Gover nor Nominee Says He Wil( Campaign Hard. By Associated Press CHICAGO — Herbert C, Paschen, the Democrats' new candidate for lieutenant-governor, was surprised by his selection but will "campaign any place and every place that they want me to." The 47-year-old North Shore attorney said today he had no inkling he might be picked to run for the No. 2 state post when the Democratic State Central Conmiit tee met Thursday. "I had absolutely no inkling of this except for some mention in Tuesday's newspapers," Paschen stated. "First word I heard of their picking me was on the radio." Paschen is a tall, gray-haired man who practices law in downtown Chicago and resides in an 11-room house in the North Shore suburb of Hubbard Woods. He was married in 1929 to Helen Hefferan and has two children, Carolyn Mary, 21, a senior at Wellesley, and Herbert Jr,, 18, 'who plans to enter Princeton this fall. In 1946 Paschen was an unsuccessful candidate for county commissioner. In 1950 he won a write- in campaign against two other candidates for the post of Democratic committeeman for New Trier Township. At last month's Democratic National Convention, Paschen was the alternate delegate for Gov. Adlai Stevenson and during the governor's absence from the convention, Paschen voted on the first ballot for W. Averell Harriman. Paschen told reporters the governor had not told him how to vote, but that he knew "by implication" that Stevenson would have voted for Harriman had he been present. An Episcopalian, Paschen's hobbies are gardening and an "interest" in politics. He is the son of the late Frank Paschen, founder of the, Paschen Bros, firm of building contractors.

The corjMral is 25-year-old Frank Farkas of Flushing, N. Y„ who is stationed at Quanlico, Va. He is a veteran of the Korean war. H.

Allder said he probiiMy would appeal the ruling of Municipal Court Judge Andrew' J. Howard Jr., who set Aug. 19 for sentencing The district law, Allder said, is unconstitutional. He contended it violates freedom of speech. "If a man owns property", Allder said, "he can write anything he wants on it." Farkas said he bought the car, a 1949 model, in New York three months ago and has had nothing but trouble ever since. The district law says that no car shall carry any sign or lettering which ridicules the vehicle. Farkas was picked up in his car in downtown Washington last week. By Assoeiattd Press SPRINGFIELD, lU.—Sen. Richard Nixon asserted today that Gov, Adlai E. Stevenson, the: Democratic presidential nominee, met with President Truman "to get a briefing on how he can carry forth th6 Truman policies." ' . ^ Nixon, Republican nominee for vice president, also charged/ that Stevenson sought "to niarshall-fOT his campaign the great resource* of the federal government which, incidentally, belong to the Amerlr can people and not to any political party." He said this is the only possible interpretation of what he termed "The unprecedented action" of Gov. Stevenson's meeting with Truman in Washington Tuesday. " In a speech prepared for a Republican rally at the Illinois State Fait-—the very backyard of the II7 linois governor—Nixon hammered at his theme that Stevenson is the "captive candidate" of ''the bosses." The youthful California senator contrasted Stevenson with Dwight D. Eisenhowert Republican presidential candidate,.,, saying: ' , "The evidencg= continues IQ,. in'^iat Adlai Ste ^Wsoms Wflo: regardless of * his'-expness,- intentions. is now a helpless"'captive of those who made ;his nomination possible. "Millions of Americans saw on, television how the pattern developed. They saw how-Estes Kefauver, who was the choice of, the people in the primaries, was cast aside on the third ballot when the' poli tjcal bosses * * ^ began to pull the strings." Nixon said "Stevenson is truly a hand-picked candidate ' and the hand that picked him was that of Harry Truman. • "Eisenhower on the other hand owes his nomination solely to the fact that he was the choice of millions of Americans in free primary elections." Nixon contended that Stevenson "has tried desperately to disassociate himself from those who made him but his deeds speak louder than words. "Since the convention the pattern of boss control jias become crystal clear. He appointed as his campaign manager Wilson Wyatt^ the darling of the left wing of the CIO and ADA Americans for Democratic Action, a pro -New Deal political organization formerly headed by Wyatt. He appointed as his national chairman, Stephen Mitchell, a product of Jake Arvey's machine." Nixon referred to Jacob'Arvey, Democratic national committeeman from Illinois. And now just yesterday," Nixon continued, "he has sat in as an exofficio member of Harry Truman's Cabinet." Nixon contended that Democrats and Republica.ns "alike throughout America want a change." He said, "the tragedy is that regardless of where , Stevenson says he stands, his hands will be tied by those who made his nomination possible." • Nixon asserted the voters "want a more effective foreign policy than the one that has lost 600 million people to the Communists in the seven years of the Trimian Administration. "They want to clean up the corruption in Washington which has cast an unfair reflection on mil; lions of honest government employees. "They want a man in the White House who does not look upon the Communists in America as "red herrings" or "phantoms in our midst." "They want relief from the policies which have put the doubly squeeze of high taxes and high pricei, on ewery family budget;" ' William G. Stratton, Republican nominee for governor, told the party gathering that "we will wage the fightingest, rip-snortingest Republican-American campaign ever waged in the state of Illinois." "No more me -too," he said. "No more wishy-washy compro* mises. • No more bowing to big bosses more concerned with their private interests than with the weWaxt of America.
