PAOB TWB1.TB BLYTMiVILUi (AKKJ COUHUCR NEWS Truman Again Accused Of Telling Untruths to ADA Attack on Republicans WASHINGTON, Iff, — President Truman's truthfulness came under additional Senate fire today. Sen. Bridges (R-NH) ond Sen. Capehart (R-Ind) Joined Ihe chorus of Republicans and Democrats questioning the accuracy of .statements Truman made In a political speech before the Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) Saturday night. Bridges, Republican leader In the Senate, said In a prepared Senate address th.°.t Truman's pronouncements nrc "losing their ring of Iruih." "Malicious Untruth" Capeliai-t accused the President of "a malicious untruth" In telllnit the ADA, self-styled liberal organization, that the Republican party wants lo turn the country over lo b!^r business. On tlie Senate tloor yesler.lny Ssn. Lyndon Johnson (D-Tex) said Truman had not followed tlio facts In asserting that a bill pa.ssed by Congress to give the stales t.tlc to the oil-rich submerged lands off their coasts Is like "robbery In broad daylight." "The President's statement on robbery Is no more accurate than his statement on ownership ol the submerged lands," Johnson declared. "Possibly If he had taken the time to look up Hie facts he would not have been so reckless In his language." Statement "Not Accurate" i Johnson contended Truman's assertion lhat federal ownership of the lands had been affirmed by the Supreme Court was not an ac- cunite statement of the facts. This Democratic criticism of Truman's veracity was more than matched by Sen. Hcrintm Welker <R-Mnho). Welker accused the President of making an "uttci falsehood" in naming him as ont of a group of Senate OOP members who criticised Sen. Aleximdci Wiley tR-Wis) for defending some administration foreign policy decisions. Truman told the. ADA that Wiley had been Jeered and sneered at by his Republican colleagues /or Bay- Ing there were some foreign policy actions of which every America could be proud. The President named Welker, Bridges and five other senators ns having Joined in this castigalion. "If the President had used half- common sense or his ghost writers had checked the congressional record, they would have found I did not take part." Welker declared. Retraction Demanded Welker said he had written Truman demanding n retroclion and was going to answer "whenever the President of the UnKed States stoops so low as lo use my name In utter falsehood." Bridges, asserting Truman made a reckless speech, said that, in naming him as one of Ihose who discussed Wiley's views: "He tried to make the country believe lhat I am nn isolationist When, if he i>3d Just refreshed his! memory with a glance st my voting record, he would never have made such a ridiculous statement." Charge Called "Political" Capehart said Truman's charge that the Republicans are linked with big business wns political. In a speech prepared for the Senate, the Indiana senator declared: "The truth is, no administration under nny party has so aligned itself with big business ns Hint of Harry S. Truman and his Dt>m-| ocralic machine." | The Indiana senator lisied 131 persons who he snid had big busi- ness ties and who had been connected with Ihe Roosevelt and Truman administrations In some capacity. Several on the list, which Is headed by Secretary of State Acheson, arc Kepubllcans. Some have tiled and otber.s retired from government long before Truman became President.
