JCtVTfl—yp. BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS 1--! . . THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OV NORTH PART 1 IBK-IUBA., , **~* Ike Blasts Democrats' Long Reign Party Jaded *"• By 'Negligence, Complacency' Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, stepping- up his campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination, teed off on the Democrats as too long in power and jaded by "complacency, negligence and cynicism." His speech before an audience of 11.000 in Delivers coliseum last night — radio-broadcast nationwide — was beamed especially at Ihe nation's youth. They are sickened, he said, by "epidemic" cm minion in high places but will meet moral issues of the campaign with idealism and energy. Eisenhower said Ihe United Staes had handled Russia too gingerly. Less softness, he said, might have prevented the Korean conflict and kept China and Balkan and Baltic states from slipping be^inn the Iron Cm-tain. ^The speech came almost as an answer to statements earlier in the day by Eisenhower's chief rival for the OOP nomination, Ohio Sen. Robert Taft. "I am afraid," Taft (old a Washington, D. c.', news conference, "that Eisenhower's backers would urge him to conduct the kind of campaign that Dewey conducted." New York Gov. Thomas Dewey's loss to President Truman in 1948 has been blamed on "me-loo" tactics which lacked fight. Dewey is working now for Eisenhower's nomination at the OOP'S July 7 convention at Chicago. All But Three Tail's campaign manager, David Ingalls, said yesterday his man just about has the nomination sewed lip anyway. In a statement he credited Taft with all but three of the 04 delegate votes needed to win. The Associated Press tabulation •—based on statements of avowed and conceded alignments for the first ballot — shows Taft has '182 to Eisenhower's 404, with 129 for others and I9f unco'mmitled or disputed. A; In the Democratic race — the Convention at Chicago comes two weeks after the OOP's — there wa.s talk of a stop-Harrlman road block being fashioned by Southerners. According to the 1 report, some backers of Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia have been sounding out the forces of other candidates for Democratic presidential nomination. The idea: hold the line against Mutual Security Administrator Averell Harriman if he should suddenly get the support of President BI.YTHEV1LLK, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, JUNK 27, 1952 TEN PACKS Flowers, who has four cases aiKintr inequality in Arkansas schools already pending, said yesterday that he will,file 12 more suits wieliln the next few months.

Unless the conferees agree on controls legislation acceptable to both the Senate nnri Ihe House, and unless both houses pass the final bill, nil controls expire Monday midnight. They may expire then anyway. President Truman mny not sign the bill Congress sends him. The House hill, while- ending price und rent controls, would keep most wnge ceilings in force. It differs greatly from the Senale's bill, which would keep price and wnge controls—as well'as rent controls— in existence. Only One Agreement And Sen. Maybank (D-SCl, hearting the Senate conferees, went Inlo Ihe session with the House dole- gates in no mood to back down from the Senate's position. About the only area of general agreement between the Senate and Ihe House, as expressd In their sparalely-passed bills, is Uml President Truman should Iry lo halt the M-dny-old steel strike with a Tall-Hartley Law injunction. This would ban n strike for 80 days. There is general agreement between the two branches, too, on continuance of present powers to allocate mid put priorities on scarce materials. But from there on, there Is sharp Isngreement. Conferees may be forced to recommend that Congress keep the present law alive a few days longer with an emcgcncy resolution while differences are adjusted.
