TAGB TWO BLYTHZVILLH (ARK.) COURHR MBW1 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14,1956 Nixon Cites Record Of Eisenhower f Denies He Called Truman A Traitor 7 (Continued from Page 1) former President Harry S. Truman a "traitor," as Truman had complained. "I did not call Mr. Truman a traitor — absolutely not," Nixon told newsmen. Nor did he call trie Democratic party "the party of treason" or question the loyalty of any of its members, Nixon added. "I have always said that there nnlv nnp nart.V for treason in the United States, and that is the Communist party," he said. "In all my public speeches and private talks I have always said that the loyalty of Truman. Stevenson and all the leaders of the Democratic party should not be questioned—only their judgment. The Alger Hiss case speaks for it self. Mr. Truman called it a red herring." Kept Silent Up until the airport interview Nixon had kept silent publicly or the political controversy stirred up by Truman's recent accusation that Nixon called him a traito In 1952 campaign talks "all ove the West." Leaders of the Repub lican party had denied this. Nixon declined to speculate a his news conference on whethe; President Eisenhower will run again. He said, however, that "the optimism is higher now than a any other time." "Until the President makes his decision," Nixon said, "there should be no public activities against him by others." This ap parently was a reference to Sen William F. Knowland of Calfornia who has indicated he may become an active candidate for the GOP presidential nomination withou waiting for announcement of the •President's decision. Knowland has said he would drop out if Eisenhower later decided to run. After addressing 1,500 members and guests at the National Republican Club at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, NUon was driven to the St. George Hotel in Brooklyn, where he spoke at a dinner of the Kings County Republican organi- .Kation. He made somewhat the game speech, in .shortened form. At tbe Waldorf-Astoria dinner, Nixon received the National p'ubUcao Club's second annual award for "ouUtanding service to the nation." The award—a bronze head of Abraham Lincoln—was presented by former Qov. Thomas S. Dtwey, who won it last year. Nixon said Stevenson and Ke- teuver, botfc announced candidates and Harriman, who says he is not an "active" candidate, are "three candidates in search of a orisis' ta bidding for the Democratic presidential, nomination. Calling Stevenson the leading candidate, Nison said he "lately shrinks at »e suggestion that the TJ.S. may have found it necessary to be on the brink of war in order *o keep the peace." Nixon also said it begins to ap. pear that Illinois, "which gave the nation Abraham Lincoln, the great rail-splitter of 1860, has produced in Adlai Stevenson the great hairsplitter of 1956." Nixon added: "He says we are too strong and too weak, too firm and too flexible, too belligerent and too timid." On the brink of war angle, Nixon declared: "The test of failure or success of foreign policy is whether it results in war or peace—and I am sure 166 million Americans will agree with me when 1 say It is a lot better to be on the brink of war than in the drink as far as war is concerned." Thir. was an allusion to statements attributed to Secretary oi State Dulles in a magazine article that the country has been on the brink of war three times during this administration and avoided it by strong action. Nixon called Harriman "an ex- peasive political accident temporarily occupying the governor's mansion at Albany." Nixon said the only hope for continued progress for Negroes is in the election of a Republican presi dent and Congress.

But Sen. Bridges (R-NH), a member, told newsmen "pr'essure is building up from both sides' for a wider investigation. •"There are requests that we look into the activities of the gas distributing companies and the labor unions that were against the bill, as well as those of its proponents," 1 he said. Neff told the committee he had made no contributions to the personal campaign funds of any senators other than Case. Sen. Thye (R-Minn). a member, indicated the committee is seeking more information before it decides whether to ask for broadened authority or before it makes any findings. He said the group wants to know more about "the connections between Neff and the sources he claimed to have got the money from." Steadman said the committee wants some "corroborative evidence." IT '• (Continued from PM« 1) in tribute to Communist leaders who had died since the last party Congress. He linked the names of Stalin, Czech President Klemenl Oottwald. who died In 1953, and Kyuichi Tokuda, former first secretary of the Japanese Communist party who died in exile in .Com munist China in October, 1953. The reference to Stalin was the first mention of the late dictator in connection with the opening of the party meeting. The sessions of the congress—the first full-scale planning meeting since the death of Joseph Stalin— were secret but the lirst major item of business was Khrushchev's review of Soviet and world affairs What the stocky party secretary has to say will not be made public until the party decides to permit publication. His speech was expected to be a most important pronouncement, spelling out the* line the Communists will follow for at least the next four years. Agenda Adopted A series of opening ceremonies and the adoption of an agenda preceded Khrushchev's address. Delegates from • over the Soviet Union and top Red visitors from other countries filed through the clo.sply guarded Kremlin gates and took their seats in the supreme Soviet chamber as the great golden clock atop Spassky ..Tower chimed 10. Colorful costumes of Asian delegaies were intermingled with the more somber \Vestern_ dress of other officials as the con-| gress assembled. Western observers were impressed by the fact that the hundreds of thousands of words of pre- congress publicity did not once mention the name of Stalin, who! died March 5, 1953. He was almost | i deified at the last congress in 1952 j but this time the emphasis was on the role ,of the party as a whole. International Character The international character of the meeting was emphasized, in today's issue of the Soviet party newspaper -Pravda. which featured an article by French Communist chieftain Maurice Thorez. In it Thorez stressed the identity of the interests of Prance and the Soviet Union. He attacked sharply pro- psoals for European unification, terming them "miserable camouflage for the mailed fist of American financial magnates." Other party leaders on hand include a big delegation from Red China. Jacque.* Duclos of Prance. Palmiro Togliatti of Italy and Harry Pollitt, Decree Matthews and Palme Dutt of Britain. No provision was made for re porting the congress sessions b> Moscow's foreign press corps. I the past Pravda has printed th text of speeches and proceedings beginning the day after the open ing session. Some observer thought Khrushchev's speech might be of such length that i would be published in installmetns over a period of several days. SUMMER'S COMING—Take comfort as you tighten your earrnuffs. Summer's coming—and testimony to it is the fact that down in Ecuador they've weaving like crazy to produce the 3,600,000, "Panama" hats the U.S. will import in a few months. Above, with women weavers of Cuenca, the hat capital, looking on, five-year-old Pablo Goiualez tries one on "for size." Ecuador's handmade, toquilla straw toppers are called "Panamas" because during the French attempt to dig the Panama Canal, the famed engineer; Ferdinand de Lessups brought some on the isthmus and popularized 'them among his' associates. Hearings Postponed WASHINGTON ifl — The Senate Investigations subcommittee has postponed hearings, which had been scheduled to start today, on reported easing of East-West trade curbs. Chairman McClellan (D- Ark) said preliminary closed-door inquiries have taken longer than expected, and it will be later in the week before the group can start taking public testimony.

Two Vehicles Hit Pedestrians Police Deported two ' accidents yesterday in which a pedestrian and a bicycle rider were struck by cars. Willie Hopper, a city patrolman, was driving his own 1954 Chevrolet in front of city hall when he struck Gerald Mosley, a Courier News carrier boy, as he rode on his bicycle. Young Mosley was taken by Hoppel to a hospital where he was placed under, observation. He was then taken to his home after it was discovered he was not seriously injured. J D. McClode was reported to have struck a pedestrian wtih his car near the intersection of Main and Broadway. She was Mrs. V. A. Douglas and received leg and forehead lacerations. * . Neither motorist was "cited by police. In Municipal* Court LeRoy Mullins was fined $25 in Municipal Court today on a charge j of speeding through a traffic zone; at Sudbury school. j .He appealed the fine and posted ! $50 appeal bond. HUMPHREY (Continued from Page 1) would furnish the remainder. In advance of Humphrey's testimony, Rep. Byrnes (R-Wis) said the Boggs plan, if approved by Congress, could "kill chances for a balanced budget right off the bat." "It would leave a large deficit in the general fund of the Treasury because It earmarks for highway use all of .the excise taxes now collected from motorists," he told newsmen.. • To General Fund "Some of that money has been going into the general fund. So if all of It goes into highways, it means that much less for the general revenues and the necessity of raising money somewhere else." This was challenged by Boggs, who contended the administration's original bond financing program "proposed taking the same amount of revenues from highway-use taxes as proposed In my bill." Since Its defeat m the Senate ion, the. admin- . istration has ceased to press its plan to finance an interstate highway system through issuanceoof SO-year highway bonds. Republicans now appear ready to go along with some form of a "pay-as-you- go" program, based on increased motoring taxes.

As a training device, the A-bomb simulator was pronounced a success by the Navy. As a sp«ctacl« it was only one step above a dud. •It looked like a firecracker," said one of the hundreds of men lining the Mt.
