F*b. 26, 1954 Cii, GI*fc*.G»i*tU, Maw. city, la Demos Ask Ike to Call Off GOP Sniping , By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON W)--While Presi dent Eisenhower stands aloof his Republicans go around knocking the Democrats' hats off. It's get ting'on the Democrats' nerves ' Now they're calling on Bison hower to halt the Republican at tacks if he disapproves, or sa openly he endorses them, if he does. The Democrats started calling on Eisenhower to see where he stood after a blast by the Presi dent's No. l White House assist ant/Sherman Adams. Adams in a speech rceentlj climaxed the Republicans' own growing irritation over the Demo crats' harping on the present business downturn. He said: Democrats who talked about depression were a bunch of political "sadists" trying to hand the coun try a "fear deal." Democrats Ablaze The Democrats were also ablaze over another question: After all the Republican talk in the 1952 campaign about Com- munists-in-govermncnt, just how many Communists did the Republicans, find when they took over from the Democrats? .Eisenhower himself announced 2,200 government employes had been "separated" from their jobs under his security program. Undei that program a person could be fired not only for being a Communist or Communist sympathizer but for being a drunk, homosexua or a gossip. Actual Communists How many of the 2,200 were found to be actual Communists or fellow-travelers Eisenhower didn't say, in spite of demands by Democrats Jn Congress, and repeated questioning of the President by newsmen. The question is not academic. Some powerful Republicans have insisted Communists-in-government would be a main issue ' i n this year's congressional elections. Eisenhower has said he h'opes any fear of .Heels ."actively undermining" the government will have disappeared by November. If the administration ever provides a breakdown showing none or only a handful of the 2,200 were subversive, the Republicans will have lost a lot of ammunition. 1C it turns out the other way, the Democrats will be sorry they ever raased the question. · NearJy 580,000,000 worth of cot ton is sold to the automobile industry every year.

NICHOLS WASHINGTON (UP)--Even an old horse lover like me has to admit that maybe it was a good idea Old Nellie was put out to pasture. At the moment, in our town, we have a White House Conference on Highway-Safety. And Adm. H.B. Min Miller, Ret., the director, was giving me some figures to show that it is not a new problem of the auto age. "Take in 1909," he said! "There were 26 million horses and mules in this country. Counting kicking lind-side and so forth, and jumping the traces they killed 3,850 folks .hat year." The admiral says those figures prove that the "safe" days of horse and buggy travel were pretty dangerous-in fact, more dangerous t h a n today's auto--jammed high- vays. Horse Deadlier "Horse deaths were 30 people 'or every hundred million miles of travel. The figures for 1953 show that cars killed seven folks for each hundred million miles. "So, on an exposure basis, the horse killed four times as many as our cars did last year." But many was the mile I rode vith Grandpa Walter Young without a challenge from a red light or the fear of some hot-rod passing on the left. We came through wearing all our limbs, somehow. Anyhow the people meeting here have some ideas about saving lives, which always is important. At the president's conference are business, labor, civic, official, women's groups, and so on from every state in the Union. Their objective is to reduce the wasteful byproducts of highway travel. Like death, injury and the economic loss which runs into the billions of dollars. Some Progress Miller thinks we have made some progress already through education. "Back in 1925," he says, "we had 20 million cars and trucks on the road. That year our death rate was 18 people for every hundred million miles. That rate" has been coming down steadily. The number killed in 1953, with more cars on the road, was less than in 1937 and 1941." Miller and the other experts guess that there will be 85 million cars on the road by 1975. If you want to bust it down, bumper to bumper, that would be 1 enough to reach the moon, atv while up there, go four time around the man made of gree cheese. Plus maybe a heckuv traffic jam.
