Mitchell said the GOP has now switched from "scare" to "smear" and is presenting "McCarthy ism in a new edition" with Vice President Nixon as "chief author and spokesman. 11 Smile and Smear Charged The Democratic chieftain said that "whenever the going gets tough" Eisenhower "abdicates leadership to the Dewcys, Nixons and McCarthys and continues to smile pleasantly while they do the smearing." Nixon, in Pocatello, Idaho, said last night a Democratic victory would "give a tremendous boost to the left-wing- elements within the party." Earlier, he told a Phoenix, Ariz, rally that "the only sure way to keep security risks out of the government" Is to elect another GOP Congress. Nixon said the "great majority'* of the 0,926 persons fired as security risks in the last 22 months were holdovers from the Truman administration. GOP National Chairman Leonard W. Hall said at Hartford, Conn., that Democratic campaigners are using "the old technique of the big: lie repeated again and again" in efforts to belittle Republican accomplishments. In Washington, the GOP National Committee said a study indicated the party has "achieved 85.8 per cent performance" on platform pleges made in 1952.

His wife \vjis blonde and pregnant Marilyn Sheppard, 31, \vho s clubbed to death in her bed er.rly on (be morning of July 4. It is because of her death that Sheppard is un trial for his life. The other woman is pretty, auburn-haired Susan Hayes, a 24- year-old hospital technician who, :jolice said, admitted she was intimate with Sheppard "more than once" before his wife was slain. In questioning prospective jurors vestcrday, Sheppard'.s white-haired defense attorney William J. Corrigan, mentioned both women, as :ie has done nearly every day of the trial. The questions were directed to a housewife and an ecr, both eventually seated as replacements on the jury. Of Mrs. Maria While, prim-laced wife of a manufacturers' agent, torrigan asked: "Would the fact that Susan Hayes (old a press reporter that had been intimate with Dr. Sheppard cause you to be biased :oward the defendant?"

Eisenhower's .•speech was mainly a rosy account of the nation's economic health, coupled with this forecast: "Drawing on the richly varied abilities of our entire citizenry, we can foresee Unit in less than a decade the national output will increase from today's 356 billion dollars to 500 billion. This would equal iiii average of more than S3. 000 for every amcriciui family of today." He called for an end to "the rush of fcnvs thul Eoi' so lon^ rmve haunted some of us — fear of war, fear of unemployment, fear of ourselves, fear of the future," and added: "Certainly, we know now Unit one such fear — fear of a paralyzing depression— can be safely laid away." Picture Today As for the picture today, Eisenhower painted it this way: 'Without war, our economy fs r .worklnc at near record levels.

The Standard Oil Co. of Ohio the defense attorney asked: "Would the particularly revolting manner in which Mrs. Sheppard was killed — with 27 blows about the head — affect your judgment in this case?" Mrs. While and Pilimon both answered in the negative. In qualifying for the jury they replaced two housewives Mrs. Grace L. Prinz, who admitted Inst week she had an opinion and it would take "an awful lot of discussion" to change it; and Mrs. Margaret Adams, a chatty and icrvous woman, whose quick answers seemed to indicate she was eager to serve on the jury. Yesterday's changes left the ten- atlvc jury with a balance of six women and six men. One of the new jurors Mrs. White was almost Indignant as she mswered some of the questions ossed by the state and defense. Once asked whether she would be impartial to testimony given by T policeman and a layman, she •cplied with such an emphatic 'yes" that the word seemed to be divided into three syllables. hours of work are getting longer. Consumers are spending at a higher rate than ever before. "Construction records are being broken month by month. Wage i-iitcs are at their all-time peak. Weekly earnings in manufacturing arc again on the rise. "Our people have more personal income after taxes than ever before. Our niitlonnl production suvpttEacs even the war peak year of 1944. It is far above the levels of 1945 through 1952."
