FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1952 TH7 REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TRUMAN FIRES NEW BLASTS AT EISENHOWER Tells Whistle Stop Crowds Ike is in Taft's Pocket. By Associated Press ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN.— President Truman leveled his fire at Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower in Oregon and California today, calling him a captive of the "Republican isolationists" whose election might endanger the country. While his campaign train "board of strategy" worked over a mass of material for future attacks on the GOP presidential nominee, Truman told West Coast voters Eisenhower "has fallen in with a pretty bad crowd." "He's in Taft's pocket, and that Taft is telling him what to do," the President said at Everett, Wash., Thursday. Then, at Kent, Wash., Thursday night Truman told another audience of 8,000 persons the "reactionary Old Guard" has taken the General into camp, and charged that with some of the advice Eisenhower has been getting lately, "I am afraid he will wreck our foreign policy, and the peace of the world." Then to a cheering, Democratic rally in the Eagles hall at Seattle, Truman said Sen. Robert A. Taft reported after his New York City breakfast with the nominee that they had agreed to cut 10 billion dollars off the budget in the fiscal year 1954 and another 20 billion a year later. Thousands in Streets More than 3,000 persons jammed the Seattle hall, it was estimated by Patrol Chief of Police J. D. Porter, who also estimated an additional 50,000 to 60,000 lined the streets between the railroad station and the auditorium. This whole preposition is irresponsible, petty politics," the President said. "No such cuts are possible without impairing our security—without in fact wrecking it, . . . This would be sheer folly in the face of the known dangers of Soviet aggresssion." He said Eisenhower was making "this irresponsible bid for votes" because to get the support of the Ohio Senator he defeated for the GOP nomination, "he had to swallow the Taft foreign policy, hook, line and sinker, disguised as a budget cut." Once Respected Ike "I am dismayed and disheartened that a man whom we all once respected, and a man whom I trusted implicitly, has thus turned his back upon the things we thought he stood for." Light Candles As a Memorial To Love Story By Associated Press SAVANNAH, Ga.—Two candles will be lighted Saturday night at a corner table in one of Savannah's eating places. A sign will mark two seats as "reserved" but they will not be occupied. The candles will be a memorial to a love story. , Two years ago Saturday. Logan and Mary Roe sat at the taDle. They had been married that day. Much of their courtship had been conducted at the same table in the light of flickering candles. A few months ago Mary died— a victim of cancer. Roe, a merchant mariner, applied for sea duty. Wednesday night he telephoned the restaurant from New York. A Dr. Whitaker First National Bank Bldg.

Junior Lie Detector for Junior's Junior Fibs By RICHARD KLEINER •NbA Staff Correspondent MEW YORK— iNKAj— Children from now on will be able to play cops and robbers scientifically. Noni of this "Bang, bang, you're dead" stuti any more; in the future, it'll be "Sit down, Letty, we're going to give you a lie detector test." The cause of this juvenile evolution is a gimmick called the Marlin Electronic Lie Detector, a toy-sized copy of the real thing. It is meant for children, but has already proven to be great fun, in a slightly scandalous way, for adults. Frank Shain, the New York sales representative, tried it out on me. It's a brown box with a big dial and a couple of knobs. It's about the size of a portable radio. Attached to it are two wires, with metal plates that fit over your finger. "Give me the names of five men," Shain said. "Include the name of one man you don't like. I'll ask you questions, and you answer no to every one. Make believe you're trying to hide the one name from me. I'll find it out." # * * * I gave him five names and he wrote them down. Then he began asking me questions. "Is it Frank?" he asked. 1 said no. "Is it George?" he asked. 1 said no. (It really was George.) "1; it Bill?" "Is it Alfread?" "Is it Horace?" I said no to all. He smiled at me. "You're a lousy liar," he said. "It was George, wasn't it?" Then I watched the machine from the other side. The needle on the dial swings up and down like it was breathing, but Shain and Ray Moloney, Jr., the manufacturer from Chicago, explained that it works on "GSR, or galvanic skin resistance," whatever that might be. Another subject had the metal EXPRESSION OF DISBELIEF is worn by NBA reporter Richard Kleiner JIS he tries on a falsehood for size to test junior-grade He detector. Machine also wore expression of disbelief, allowing demonstrator Frank Shain to trap Kleiner. plates taped to his middle fingers. Shain had him give the names of five women, including that of his wife. Then he began asking questions. "Is it Alice'.'" The needle moved up to about three on tlie dial, numbered I ram zero to 10. Shain waited until it went back to zero again before he asked the next question. "Is it Betty?" The needle jerked like a strutled hypochondriac, up to around eight. The other three names produced no reaction. It was easy. 1 donned the metal plates again, determined to fool the machine. We worked it with cars this time; I named five makes of automobiles, including the one I Convicts Lashed as Canada Puts Down Strike in Prison By Associated Press VANCOUVER, B. C. — A wild, screaming riot by half a hundred convicts at suburban Oakalla prison Thursday was drowned out with fire hoses after a cell block had been turned into a shambles. Two guards held as hostages during the 2% -hour uprising were unharmed. All prisoners also escaped injury. Warden Hugh Christie said the abortive riot was touched off in protest against a new policy of placing two men in all cells, which formerly held only one. Prisoners Whipped The warden reported that 45 prisoners directly involved in the destructive demonstration were punished, some being whipped with a long, leather strap "on their bare backsides." Furniture in the cell block was broken, toilets and wash basins were ripped up, bunks were torn apart and doors were barricaded. The prison houses 800 men. letter he had just mailed contained a $5 bill. He said: "I'm on a transport that is putting to sea in the morning, but I want to reserve our table for our anniversary Saturday night. The bill will cover any expenses involved." U.S. Air Force In Far East Is Strengthened By Associated Press TOKYO—The U. S. Far East Air Force is being beefed up by 50 per cent for ils unrelenting air war on Red Korean targets. This was announced today by U. S. Air Secretary Thomas K. Fincietter. He said some reinforcements already are on hand and air attacks could be stepped up considerably "on very short notice." For security reasons, he declined to say how many planes are being added to the FEAF. He also said overall jet production in the U. S. has caught up with Russian output. He was "confident the Air Force can handle any ihreat that might develop from the Communist air foive now deployed * * * in Manchuria." Finletter, just b ..k from a lour of Korean air bases and front, said he had been informed the Soviets have moved jet light bombers to Siberian bases but I hat so far as was known none had yet been added to the Chinese air force.

But it is still a life-and-deaih matter to the American soldiers over there fightng in what some feel is a forgotten laboratory of battle. The politics of it all interests them less than the grim sta- istics of survival. What is it like — their day-today existence on a so-called "static front" in the bare-boned terrible hills'.' » * * • Bill Mauldin gives one of the clearest pictures yet in "Bill Mauldin in Korea," a series of all-too- brief-vignetles of what is coming to be known as "world war two- and-a-half." Mauldin writes through tlie eyes of Joe, the younger of his famous doughboy team of the last war. Joe graduates from high school after five years under the GI bill, and immediately gets a job ns a war correspondent. He tells about what ho found in Korea in letters home to his old buddy, Willie. There is very little griping and a sergeant explnins it to Joe this way: "No matter what kind of a job you are doing in those mountains, you can find sombbody a lot worse off." * * iii * Maudlin's book is a fine eyewitness primer for the home folks in 170 pages. I only wish that his own eloquent summary of his Howards of 12 can operate it. It's also dandy at adult parties, he says with a mischievous grin, and great fun when used to determine the correct ages of women.

This is it: "The combat man in Korea fights under the dreariest conditions and against the worst kind of odds. He looks forward to few of the little compensations American soldiers could expect in previous wars. He fights a battle in which his best friends get killed and if nn account of the action appears at all in his home town paper, it apears on page 17 under a Lux ad. "There won't be a victory parade for his return because he'll come home quietly and alone, on rotation, and there's no victory in the old-fashioned sense, anyway, because this isn't that kind of war. It's a slow, grinding, lonely bitched-up war, but he goes on fighting in it, not happy, but In good spirit not in a frenzy of hatred against an enemy which is as pitiful as it is vicious but efficiently and with a purpose. "In the minds of many people the phrase 'professional soldier' has a stigma very much like 'professional politician.' It implies cynical and mercenary motives. Yet soldiering is as necessary and legitimate a profession in a world which still makes war as are politics in a world which still nelds laws. "I think that due to Korea we have a professional army for what may be the frst time in our history and maybe we'll have rea* son to be grateful for it in the years ahead."
