If, _ Sen John Sparkman skipped the touchy civil rights issue In opening his vice presidential campaign before a deep South audience last night. The Alabama senator's blanket defense of the Democratic platform was the nearest he came to the subject. The parly platform that has caused strife among many Southern Democrats contains a proposed Fair Employment Practice Commission, anti-lynch ana anti- poll tax planks. "I realize there may be things in the Democratic platform that all of us cannot agree upon." he told an audience estimated at between 3,000 and 5.000 In the Mendenhall High School football stadium. "But remember that this party of ours is made up of free people from all walks of Ufe with ninnv divergent beliefs." Sparkman recently was called "a traitor to the South" for his support of the platform. His critics, dissatisfied Mississippi Democrats, formed a Democrats-for-Eisenhower movement and bolted the regular party. Sparkman devoted most of his speech to "what the Democratic party has done for the people of this nation." But he took the time for a few swings at the Flepubli- cans. "About the only Issue the Republicans can raise is their cry that It's time for "a change," he said. "But you people can ask them — you will ask them - a chamre from what (o what?" The senator then listed benefits ne said the Democratic pa'rty has given the country. Sparkman also defended the United Nations in Korea. "Gen. Douglas MacArthur and even Gen. Eisenhower, who certainly could not be considered supporters of our party, have said that we could not have upheld our honor and stayed out of Korea " he nsserled. "Despite gloomy reports you hear, our foreign policy is making progress," declared the Alabama senator. He .called-it a bi-partlssn policy and named Dwight Eisenhower the GOP presidential nominee, as one of many Republicans who have contributed to it.
