The Stevenson forces, headed by Qov. Hugh White and Mississippi's congressional delegation, won a right In the Resolutions Committee last night.

POLITICS (Continued from Page 1) ., et all. Some of the general's back- ! j ers have been urging him (o ignore the Taft wing in campaigning. H Others say he needs the Ohioan's J help, particularly in the Midwest. i Republicans have, been harping \\ on the conlention that Stevenson Is a "captive" of the Truman administration. Hen. Styles Bridges o f New Hampshire and Rep. Joseph Martin of Massachusetts ., provided some new ammunition j along Ihis line over the week enri. The two GOP congressional leaders charged the Democrats with about every conceivable polJlica! |[ crime in a 13.000-word campaign jj document. They said the Republi- { cans were doing their best to save V- the country. Typical <juo!<?s from the report: "The administration had no answer lo favoritism and corruption in government except to promise an executive cleanup that ended hi a complete farce." "When the 82nd Congress ad- lourned, our servicemen were still lighting In Korea and they were 'ipld back from victory by Ihe Jemocrat administration. . . . Having plunged us into war in Korea. Democrats do not know how to get us out." "The 82nd Congress, under Democrat conlrol, continued down the !i deadly path .of high government spending and high taxation—the road to national destruction." Bridges and Martin said the Korean Wsr could have been avoided If the United States had not withdrawn Us troops from the peninsula in 1947—a subject which brought controversy between John Foster Dulles and Democratic Sen. Paul Douglas ol Illinois over the week end.
