PAGE TWO TAMPA MORNING TRIBUNE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1944 PEPPER SEES LANDSLIDE FOR ROOSEVELT SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 19. (U.R) Predicting President Roosevelt's reelection by a "landslide at least as good as that in 1940,",' Sen. Pepper tonight charged that Gov. Dewey, in his campaign, had "sunk to the level of a ruthless prosecuting attorney who wants to win by nook or crook." The outspoken Florida senator, ap- New Location R. O.

LOBBY FLOOR Phone M-50344 pearing at a Democratic rally here, asserted that the Republican nominee has "gone so far as even to frame his witnesses and I can prove it." "Dewey is trying to convince the nation that the President it has elected three times is a Communist, a liar and a dishonest crook," Pepper declared, adding that "for things that he doesn't want to say, he gets the glass flower of congress, Congress-woman Luce, to say." Pepper said that If a Republican national administration were selected. the national government would be turned over to the "same reactionary party that led us into the depths of the depression. ' He added that "the President has his record of getting us out of the depression, leading us toward victory and preparing for the peace, while Dewey only has his promise" Tbiw FOR YOUR (Diamonds.

During the day another hundred people dropped in and called for cots. mattresses and blankets, and by din ner time the Red Cross canteen corps volunteers were serving lunch for about 400 persons. Cases of canned soup were brought in and served piping hot, along with hot dogs and buns. To the volunteer workers It was one continual round in the kitchen. By the time every thing was washed up it was time to get ready for supper and the women worked hard right on through the day. The school building was almost quiet, with the grownups sleeping most of the afternoon and the youngsters running around uttering subdued shouts. No Privacy Cots lined every hall of the first and second floors of the building and were arranged in the lobby of the auditorium. The only privacy was in the big outdoors, but the wind and the rain kept everyone inside. Little trouble was reported during the day, although military police and auxiliary police were called in to patrol the halls. One fight between two women over a blanket was reported, but it cleared up with both parties retiring with a cover. The biggest problem was tne ieea-Ing and caring for the babies.

Coffee was served continually and the evacuees dotted the cafeteria all day long, sipping coffee and dis cussing the situation. Almost all of them were high in their praise of the treatment they had received and marveled at how comfortable they were made in the emergency. Tom Dyer, head of the housing authority, said that the residents of Maritime homes would be able to return to their homes this morning after breakfast. They would have gone home yesterday but the danger of an extremely high tide and the fact that all electricity was out made it advisable to wait another day, he said.

Truman said much remained to be done before final victory but that there was no doubt that it would be achieved. "With the right kind of leadership the kind we have now we can win quickly," he said. "With the wrong kind of leadership, it could take years longer." :;;.. , u ' He said that to avoid future wars "we need a strong foreign policy under the administration of an experienced leader, a leader with the courage and vision to act." "The President has demonstrated that he has that kind of leadership, Truman said. "In contrast, the Re publican candidate is trying to be all things to all people but has no defi nite policy of his own. We remember now we railed in the 1920's. We can not afford to let that happen again.' TRUMAN CALLS DEWEY TRICKSTER SEATTUS, Oct. 19. (U.R) Sen. Truman, Democratic vice presidential nominee, said tonight that Gov. Dewey was "either a reactionary or a political trickster." In a five-minute radio address over a national hookup, Truman said the Republican record on administration reforms made it plain that the party was "under the domination of reactionaries" and that those reactionaries "like" Dewey, the GOP presidential nominee. He said Dewey toured the west a few weeks ago "in an effort to convince you that he and his reactionary backers have become liberals." ' Later, at Charleston, W. Va, Truman said, Dewey "sought the votes of the reactionaries by charging the President with being a fellow traveler with the Communists" and by attacking government corporations and credit agencies. ' Truman said those agencies included the Defense Plant corporation which built war plants, agencies which loaned money at low rates to small farmers and home owners and "other liberal agencies." If Dewey wanted to destroy those services, Truman asserted, "he was not telling the truth when he tried to convice you that he and his backers are going to reverse the Republican, party's traditional opposition to a liberal program." "If Dewey did not want to destroy them," the nominee added, "he was guilty of a cheap political trick when he cited them as proof that the Presi dent Is a fellow traveler with the Communists." . "We cannot take a chance," Truman said, "on either a reactionary or a political trickster." SARASOTA AREA SEEMS HARDEST HIT BY STORM While official information was lacking due to communications being knocked out, reports reaching Tampa yesterday were that the area between Sarasota and Venice and across to the strip between Wauchula and Bartow were the hardest nit by the hurricane. J. S. Roberts, a Tribune circulation man who made the trip south to Punta Gorda, then across to Wauchula and back up through the ridge, said the ground in groves was covered with grapefruit and the citrus loss apparently was terrific. "Many of the groves we passed were hit so hard you couldn't see the ground," he said. "It looked as though about 80 percent of the grapeiruit had been knockei off the trees and a great deal of the orange crop was off." Roberts said that when the truck left Sarasota a wind of approximately 125 miles an hour had been blowing and that he had to cut trees, and move them off the road, and lift high-power wires out of water to get by. Punta Gorda Escapes At Punta Gorda things weren't so bad and it appeared the town hadn't had much of the storm. "Nocatee and Arcadia appeared hard hit," Roberts said. "Trees had blown down across a number of houses and the fruit in this section was scattered all over the ground. "At Wauchula, so many trees had been blown down that we had to drive two blocks on sidewalks to get by. It was the same at Bowling Green and Fort Meade. Streets were blocked and it looked as though most of the trees in the towns had been blown down. ' "We noticed several packing houses blown down and in getting out of each town we found the roads littered with trees and wires and a number of times we had to turn back and find out-of-the-way routes to the next town. We cut at least 25 pines on the trip in order to get by." RED CROSS TO DIRECT RELIEF FROM TAMPA The American Red Cross southeast- era area office in Atlanta yesterday designated Tampa as field operational headquarters for the entire Florida hurricane belt, with Ray Schaffer, assistant area manager, in charge. Schaffer, who arrived here Wednes day night, was dispatching workers to such points as Sarasota, Fort Myers Bradenton, Plant City and Lakeland. Sent out yesterday to coordinate ac tivities in Dade City, Leesburg, Ocala, Hawthorne and Starke was George T. Costello, field representative for South Florida. Damage Reports In checking with Jacksonville In mid-afternoon, Schaffer learned that Daytona Beach had felt storm before 2 o'cock. While the wind was heavy, it reportedly inflicted little damage- The beach itself had been evacuated and more than 1500 per sons housed by the Red Cross in emergency shelters. Ocala had felt the brunt of the wind before noon, as had Orlando, where definite property and crop damage was Inflicted. Orlando was having its lull at noon and expected renewed storm activity. About 500 persons were being lodged and fed In six shelters. The power was out in early afternoon at Palatka, inj Putnam county, but no consequential damage was reported. The navy, coact guard and state patrol wer standing by. Jacksonvile. continued to shelter evacuees as it awaited the storm. "Reports up to the present indicate structural damage has been light," Schaffer had said early yesterday Workers Sent Out Many of the workers were sent Into localities which could not be reached by telephone. Their instructions were to survey any damage inflicted by the storm, then return with the information in case of a continued break In communications. According to Miss Jane Rieker, of area public information service, workers had been sent into Jacksonville from Atlanta, which alerted chapters northeast of here to the East Coast. Mis Elizabeth King, area disaster nurse, checked the nurse and hospital situation upon arrival here late Wednesday and found 150 available nurses.
