Truman." Tommorrow i s Deadline McMahon noted that under Illinois law, tomorrow is the last day primary candidates may withdraw from the contest. McMahon wrote JStrulf as "the leader of those (Illinois) citizens who have accorded me the high honor of entering me in the primary." Mr. Truman left the door open for a possible bid for a Senate seat from Missouri in a news conference discussion yesterday. His mention of the Missouri situation only fogged the picture for the crystal ball gazers. But there did appear to be general agreement about one thing—that Mr. Truman probably planned Ills words to add to the mystery regarding his plans. No one professed to know for sure, but there were renewed predictions Mr. Truman: 1. Will seek re-election to the presidency, 2. Won't run for anything. 3. Very well may bid for the seat he once held as a Missouri senator. .Missouri Senate Seat? The President himself revived talk about the Missouri Senate seal He did so by telling his news conference late yesterday he will announce his plans before tire iillng deadline for the senatorial primary In Missouri whirh Is April 29, That at least may have pushed ahead the date for announcing his decision. Previously he had promised only that he would disclose his intentions before the Hepublican Party's presidential nominating convention which starts July 7, But it did nothing to provide nnv solid clue to what the President is going to do.

America with iU free enterprise system, which Dr. Bowman defined as the freedom to show enterprise, is the greatest nation In the world —but we don't talk about It enough, lie said. "We must scout out the sates strategy of Communists; decide what Is our product, our America; and advertise and publicize our American way of life," Dr. Bowman said. Dr. Bowman gave a "voice of the opposition" act In which he argued as a Communist would. "We are the virtuous poor but are being ruined by the vicious rich." Dr. Bowman said in the Communist act. "Money should bo in the hands of those who earn It, not those who burn it," the Communist would say. Using alliterative phrases pleasing to the ear,, but hollow In meaning, Dr. Bowman"prescnicd actuarcom- munlstic arguments he has heard In American cities, he said. "I have iieara mat K'?"i of talk and it makes me sick at heart to hear what they are saying abcut our great America," Dr. Bowman eaid. And then he attempted to answer the Communists' arguments by de- scrbirg America. "When our forefathers came they brought with them the idea of freedom. They found iron and gold and ore and coal and with these natural resources and their ideas of freedom and enterprise, they mp.cio America great—but ive don't talk aljout it enough," Dr. Bov,'man said. "Materials and Ideas won't speak for themselves, we must advertise and sell our way of life," lie continued. Truman Outlines Peace, Prosperity Program for Democrats in Election KANSAS CITY, Kan. (ff)—President Truman outlined to Midwestern Democrats today a peace and prosperity program designed to win next November's election. Amid speculation that he 1. will run for the Senate In Missouri at the end of his term, 2. Is a candidate for re-eiection, and 3. wants to name his successor, the President succeeded in confusing almost every Democrat, In this meeting. Out of tliis confusion one salient fact stood out: Lacking any other nominee thev consider especially attractive, Midwestern leaders want him to run again. At the risk of possible future dissent, three leaders of the Midwestern meeting predicted the conference would go on record unanimously approving a resolution urging the President to seek another term. Concurring In this prediction were James C. Quigley of Nebraska, the • conference champion; Jake More ot Iowa, the secretary; and Carl V. Rice, Kansas national com- mltteeman. The possible dissent was wrapped up In the persons of sen. Robert Kerr of Oklahoma and Vice President Hartley. Kerr has contended belligerently that Mr. Truman won't run again. Barkley Is regarded by his friends as not only a candidate for second ulsu-e on t!ie 1952 ticket, but as an aspirant for the presidency himself. Both arc speakers at this 15-state meeting but neither Is expected to show his linnd here. Mr. Truman pledged, In a letter to Quigley, that the Democrats will not "play politics with the national defense or any oilier aspect* <X <** program for peace." He said that "if anybody fe to play politics with the welfare ot this, country, it will not b* the Democratic Party." The President made it clear that his three points for the campaign are peace, prosperity and progrex. On peace he said: "This year-of 1952 will be a critt.. cal year in our struggle to achieve wor)d peace. We are In the middle of a great national effort to build up our defenses and help free nations to strengthen themselves! H we falter now or Jose heart «nd turn aside from the program •*£ have laid out for ourselves, we amt fail." ^^ On prosperity, regarded by most Democrats as their best campaign Issue this year, the President said: "1 am proud of our party because in my opinion it has done more In recent years for this country than any party ever did In all our history."
