Opponents went consideration put off IKE OonHnwd from Page 1 does and unemployment. Without specifically mentioning those furor-stirring remarks, the President said: "My heart truly goes out to ev- •ry one of our citizens who has 10 job, or who, in other ways, suffers these hardships. Efforts to eliminate distress and build enduring economic strength In these localities are being tirelessly pursued." 2. Raised a question as to whether the administration might be giving new thought to the possibility of conferences between this country and the Soviet Union. "We will confer with any and all —if only we can have some assurance of sincerity of purpose, which must underlie all progress toward permanent peace," he said. Eisenhower talked at length about R long list of "bold, progressive steps" he said were taken by the 83rd Congress to improve And In a thrust at tile Truman administration, he said: "In the two years before (his (Elsenhower) administration took office . . . our farmers .suffered a serious loss In buying power . . . "In 1947. 930 bushels of wheat would buy a combine. By the end of 1952, It took not 030 but over 1,600 bushels—three-fourths more." Ignores Flexible System Elsenhower noted that the administration's new farm program provides for government price support of basic commodities. But nowhere in his address did he make any mention of the most controversial feature of the program— Uie provision for shifting from rig- Id 90 per cent of parity support to a system of flexible props. In the original version of his prepared text, made available Just before he left Denver, [he President's call for election of a Republican Congress in November was clear but not slated In blunt terms. On the flight from Denver to Indianapolis Eisenhower revised the text so that he actually said, "for the next two years . . . our welfare requires a Republican-led Congress. The President slugged even harder in an Informal speech earlier in the evening to about GOO party workers and OOP candidates for congressional and state offices. In that talk at the Columbia Club, Eisenhower deplored the pessimism he said ho lias been finding among .some Republicans in the congressional campaign. "We have sol '" '-''' °" nuv horses, get the spurs in Ihe grease and get to Going." he told his applauding audience. "I have never in my life ^onr into any fight to lose ... I believe in optimism — enthusiasm — am! the confidence that \ve c:m do it He said Republicans ••must slir up and obtain the -same kind ol enthusiasm we had in 1952." and then declared: "Here was the New Deal standing up there and doing thmir.s to us we didn't like, and we really got busy and girded up our loin and went into battle. That is what we have to do again." until Hie next session of Congress. as required under normal procedure for such contracts. 'Hie law •equiies a committee review of the contract before ll Koes into effect but docs not allow tho Senate- House group to veto It or change it* terms. The disputed plan—« center of the pubUc-vs.-private power controversy—<:alls for the Dixon-Yates private power group to build a 107-milllon-dollar steam plant at West Memphis, Ark., the plant would send electricity through Tennessee Valley Authority public power lines to replace some TVA power used by AEC. 3U Per Cent fnterwi Th* Dlxon-Yat«« group, composed of Middle South Utilities. Inc...and the Southern Co., would Invest 5Vi million dollars. The remaining amount would be borrowed by Dlxon-Yatos from private sources at about 3'A per cent Interest and this Interest cost, the contract shows, would be paid by AEC a» part of Dixon-Yates' charges. Rep. W. Sterling Colo (R NY), chairman of the Atomic Committee, Indicated today the AEC soon may make the proposed contract public. The AEC approved It early this month but the terms have not been officially disclosed, despite repeated demands for their disclosure by critics of the plan. Colo returned to Washington, today and reportedly contacted AEC officials about releasing the docu- menta tier being asked to do so by at least one member of the committee. Cole told a newsman "there IB nothing to hide." "The administration preferred to wait until Ihe committed acted on It," he said. "But as one member of the committee. I see no reason" why It cannot be published. By EI.TON C.
