J.OGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARK Twenty Logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Thursday Evening, December 26, 1957. Truman Lashes President, Dulles on NATO Report NEW YORK CUP) - Former President Harry S. Truman said today that President Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles' telecast to the nation Monday night was "a lot of gobbledygook." The former President, who had refused until today to comment on the President's report to the nation, made his statements during a 15-minute morning walk in the Young America Members of Young America Baptist church attended a carry-in supper at the church, and an-election of officers for the coming year. Mrs. Leo Adkinson asked the blessing for the supper. The choir under the direction of Mrs. Dale Henry sang Christm-as Carols. Rev. Harry Rea acted as rain from the Hotel Carlyle where i moderator for the business meet- he and Mrs. Truman are staying ing; 40 attended. Officers were during a Christmas with their daughter and grandson. "I think I was just about as thoroughly bored with Mr. Dulles as the President appeared to be," Truman said. "It was nothing n&w at all. There was no statement o£ policy to be pursued to meet the situation, and it sounded worse when he said it than if you read It." When he was asked later if there were any Christmas presents he might wish to give to persons in government today, ho said: "I •would like to get Mr. Dulles a good college dictionary so he can use the English language so that we can all understand him." There was one point in which the former President appeared in full agreement with Eisenhower and Dulles. "I have no faith in any Russian peace offers," he said.

Describes Grandson's Gifts Truman volunteered a high opinion of Britain's Queen Elizabeth's Christmas message to the Commonwealth, in which she said the world's ills were being caused "by unthinking people who carelessly throw away ageless ideals as if they were old and outworn machinery." It "was a "lovely statement," Truman said. "We haven't lost them, but we've been neglecting them," he said of the ideals to •which she referred. Truman said his 6-month-old grandson, Clifton Truman Daniel, had received "so many toys it will be some years before he can use them all. You name something he didn't get!!"
