Ad! a i Gets Briefing Gov. Adlaf Stevenson: of Illinois, the Democratic candidate for the presidency, \yas ; given a briefing on international affairs at the White House Tuesday. He'met with Truman, and his cabinet, and with defense and intelligence officials. The same day, Eisenhower 1 sharply criticized the move. He said it signified "the present administration is determined to nail down through its hand-picked successors every detail oE the doctrines and policies ..that have brought lip to'the present situation of' bewilderment, indecision and fear for the future." . . In his . t e l e g r a m to Truman Thursday Eisenhower said: "As you know, the problems which you suggest for discussion are those with which I have lived for many years. In spite of this, I would instantly change this decision not to accept the President's invitation in the event there should arise a grave national emergency. No Emergency "There is nothing in your message to indicate that this is presently the case." In Washington, T r u m'-a n's press secretary, Joseph Short, told reporters "the emergency question was . never considered. It never entered into the invitation at all.' U. S.

IM-,Dem'o- cratlc Presidential Nominee Adlai Stevenson called '"on" the' '48' s't'a'tes Thursday,'to''give such good gov- ernment'toj their people that they will "halt trie "tidal wave" of ncn- :ralizing power sweeping toward Washington. In the first major speech since lis nomination, Stevenson warned .his drift will go on .unless the states "perform · those necessary 'unctions of government which don't h a y'e to be performed In Washington." Demand Services Then he said: "The people will demand the services and if they don't get them at home ( they will .urn to Uncle Sam. And'the states are the dikes which \ye can build more strongly- against the flood waters sweeping toward the Dis- rict of Columbia." Stevenson gave his views in a speech prepared for delivery at a Democratic rally at the Illinois State Fair in introducing the main speaker of the day, Vice President Albcn Barklcy ot Kentucky. Stevenson gave his own philosophy of government, defended his record as. governor of Illinois, ripped into his Republican critics, .urncd s o m e of his criticism against former President Herbert Hoover, and also poked some sarcasm at Dwight D. Eisenhower, :he GOP presidential nominee. 2,000 Wordi He packed this wide swinging array of topics into about 2,001 words which he had written and xilished for the past two days up until mid-morning., Stevenson' gave the hard core ol u's speech in a few paragraphs in which he listed with pride the achievements of his administration n Illinois and then went on to say: "It has been said that perhaps no state in our time had done so much so quickly. I don't , know whether you call it a 'new deal' for Illinois, or a 'fair deal' or a 'square deal,' but I know that it been a 'no deal' state govern menl. States Important It is important because the states are important. We talk about and deplore incessantly the increasing centralization ot power over our lives in Washington. Bu that tidal drift toward the Capita will go on and on unless those necessary functions of governmcn which don't have to be pcrformec in Washington are performed, anc properly performed, at the state or local level. "The people will demand the services and it they don't get them at home they will turn to Uncle Sam. And every dollar you send to Washington to pay for them wil shrink before it gels back home."

The i-ather vague talk about possible future lax.reduc- ;ions, coming out of both the Eisenhower and Stevenson ^residential campaign carnpa,'* strikes practical tax men here as interesting but somewhat beside the point. That's jbecause a lot of taxes are due to go down sharply, starting at the end of next year, unless the President and the 83rd Congress act affirmatively to keep them up. In drafting that increase, which went into effect last fall, Congress set definite cutoff dates for the increased rates. In the absence of positive legis- ative action next year, taxes are due to go down $5,280,000,000. There would be a cut of $2,280,000,000 in individual income taxes, $2,200,000,000 in corporation taxes and some 800 million in excise levies. Individual income taxes are scheduled to revert to the last previous, rates Dec. 31, 1953, The corporate excess profits tax would be cut in half for calendar 1953 and abolished for ^calendar 1954. The increase -in the regular corporation taxes is due to run out April 1, 1954. That also is the dale for t h e scheduled cutback in a number of excise levies, including those on litjuor, beer, cigarettes, autos and gasoline.
