(ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAOB THUEH Jackson Hits Failure to Halt Reds; GOP Congress Necessary-Martin Administration Talks Tough, Carries Putter 1 MORRISTOV/N, N.J. CB—Sen. Henry M. Jackson <D-Wash) says the Republican admin istration "talks tough and carries a golf putter" and has failed to come up with any ideas to "stop the onward march of communism." Speaking last night at a rally for Rep. Charles R. Howell, the Democratic candidate for U.S. senator from New Jersey, Jackson said Communist aggression in Greece and Turkey was halted by previous Democratic administrations. Since that time, Jackson declared, the Republicans haven't done anything towards stopping communism. Jackson told the rally that unlike President Theodore Roosevelt "who said 'talk softly and carry a big stick' . . . this administration talks tough and carries a golf putter." "I wish this administration would follow the sound-policy of a great president, a Republican president, if you please, Teddy Roosevelt," Jackson remarked. Jackson said the Republican program "reminds me of an iceberg. It is cold, it is slow moving. We are told that it is big and dynamic, but so ilttle of it shows. "Like its Arctic counterparts, the Republican iceberg program is 10 per cent visible, 90 per cent submerled and 100 per cent at sea." FLORA, HI. G5R — Three persons were killed and two others were buried under deoris in the collapse of an ancient drug store building in downtown Flora yesterday. An adjoining brick building caved in while the 4%-hour rescue operations were in progress, narrowly missing some of the workers digging through the rubble for victims. Killed were Carroll Thomas, 18, and Jerry Savage, 19, fountain boys, and Leonard Leak, 34, a carpenter who was laying a new floor in the 80-year-old two-story building. John Throgmorton, 70-year-old co-owner of the drug store, was trapped in the debris for half an hour. He was not hurt. Cecil Powless, 45, the other co-owner, was pinned down for a few minutes but made his way out unaided.

I House Speaker Soys Solvency Of U.S. at Stoke NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. i& — Speaker of the House Joseph W. Martin Jr. last night said election of a Republican Congress in November is necessary to continue the job "of restoring our country to solvency." Americans are faced with important decisions which will determine whether they step over "the threshold of a new era full of promise and abundance," Marttin said, and added: ''One of those decisions will confront us with stark urgency in the 1954 election for Congress. At that time, the American people will be called upon to pass judgment on the historic Republican accomplishments of the past two years." Martin, launching a nationwide speaking tour to boost the Republican party, pictured the forthcoming elections as "the most crucial non-presidential balloting of our times." He told a $50-a-plate dinner of the Finance Committee of the GOP organization of 'Middlesex County that Americans "will decide whether they want that dynamic, farsighted program to go forward to completion—or whether they want it to be sabotaged and ripped to shreds by a Congress hostile to President Eisenhower. ..." Martin's appearance in New Jersey was the first stop on a 16- city tour. The contest in New Jersey for a U.S. Senate seat between Republican Clifford P. Case and the Democratic candidate, Rep. Charles R. Howell (D-NJ), has been described by GOP leaders as a test of the Eisenhower administration.
