F*OB FOURTEEN BLYTHEVLLLE (ARK.) COURIER N£W8 WEDNESDAY, SEPT->; 1952 Tampa Gives Ike Rousing Welcome (Continued from tnge 1) of the word mess. Elsenhower eatd U dealt mostly with food. But then he said: "Mess can mean a confused, Inharmonious, disagreeable mixture of things, a medley, a hodgepodge, a situation resulting from blunder or misunderstanding. A muddle, a botch." Elsenhower urged the people to take pnrt in their'local politics to have Influence In their government 'and in running the kind of government they want. "I am down here," he said, "to help, if I can, mnke certain there are two parties in the South." This statement brought cheers and applause from the crowd. "Don't you he taken for granted," he said. "Please make every single Individual who wants to serve you in public office come before you and sny what's In his heart and mind. Don't let him take you for granted." The reception given lo IVe atong his route posed tho question of just how solid the Democratic South will be in the November election. Eisenhower told his cheering listeners in his call for a two-|*»rty system in the customarily Democratic South: , "Every phone call I've had since yesterday morning, every telegram, every note given to my car, every word spoken to my staff and me in the great Southland Is, 'We're ready to help. We're not captive people.'" Eisenhower spoXe for 21 minutes nobody's fault. But I can promise you this: If I should ever find a rotten apple in any barrel given to my cnrc, H won't take me 3'/ 2 years to get rid of it." And he added later: "J cannot tell you the whole extent of this corruption because there has been too much hiding anil too JiUIe ex- nosing by the responsible officials of government. , . The American and was perspiring when he finished. in streams The general's plane took off for Birmingham, Alfi., at 9:33 A. in. (GST). The GOP presidential nominee was drawing huge crowds at every stop along his campaign route. Bu* none could say whether It was due to personal charm or political appeal — or a combination of the two. About 150,000 persons turpcd out to greet Eisenhower yesterday in Atlanta, Oa., Jacksonville, Flo.., and here in Miami There were prospects ot more big turnouts today in Tampa, Fin,, Birmingham, Ala., and Little Rock, Ark. — the last stops on his two-day, 3,400-mile journey from New York through tho South. The thousands who heard Eisenhower apeak burst into cheers and ( rebel yeHs when he accused the •' Truman administration of trying to oover up a "mess" of crime and corruption. "Woodshed" Honesty Cheered They cheered when he called for "common woodshed honesty 1 ' in government, and deplored the "whole sordid story" of corruption in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. They npplnudcd heavily when he said H wasn't-enough lo "change a .face or two" In the fldminis- t tratlon and Hint: "No change of i^goods In tho showcase can make the rotten goods brvck in the warehouse any better." And the harder he whiplashed the democratic leadership In Washington, the better his listeners seemed to ItXe it, if their applause was any measure. Eisenhower hammered at corruption in government on this firs! drive into the South and he made it clear he had crossed the Mnson- TJlxon Line with hopes the South would support him In November, He wound up his first day's tour speaking to a record 12,000 more persons at the bay front park, last night, the largest crowd ever to hear any candidate speak in Miami. Other thousands had cheered him on his drive Into the city and to Miami Bench. "We Want Ihc" The crowd was cli a nting ' * We want Ike" ns he stepped onto brilliantly lighted platform anrt tore into the administration which in Jacksonville he had called leadership of "stumble, tumble and fall." He read from a prepared test in •which he promised that in the days to come he would outline Hie policies he would follow on problems of peace, inflation, labor, agriculture and cleaning corruption from government. Eisenhower prnipcd Republican Sen. John J. Williams of Delaware as a man who has been chiefly responsible for exposing wrongdoing in government. He pointed particularly to cnscs in the Bo Ft on, St. Ijouis and Han Francisco tnx- collecting agencies. The Rotten Apples The crowd gave him pcrhups his ht-iiviest applause when he said: "There can always be one rotten apple in a bushel and it might be people 1mve a right to know the answers nnd the only way they will ever find oul the [ruth IFJ to get an administration that will stop trying to cover up tho mess." And then he look nil Indirect stap nt Democratic presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson by .sayIng: "No man, however honest, can clean tip this mess IT he Is elected as the nominee ol Hie athninistra- tion which created the mess. No man can set out to honesty to government Jf he owes his election In any degree to those who hnve lost their sense of public morals." Eisenhower o b v f o n -s 1 y \vas touched by the receptions in Atlanta, Jacksonville anil Minml. Tie roiced his thanks Tor "a j-rcat drty In my life" nnd for the ''warmth mcJ sincerity" of the welcomes. J[e and those around him got .heir first surprise in Atlanta, where police estimated that close .0 100,000 hiul turned out. Gov. Herman Tftlmadge nml Atlanta's Democratic Mayor \V, B. Ilnrlsflekl were among those to greet Eisenhower at the airport. The governor and mayor rode with ilm Into the city. "Too Ixmg For tininled" TnlmnUgc said Georgia too long !iad "hcen taken for granted" by Ihe Democratic party and he had words of praise for Elsenhower ns the man who probably could have liad the 1948 Democratic jirewlilcn- .lal nomination "lor the asking." Eisenhower then scored what lie called the "top-to-bottom mesa" In Washington and lie snid Stevenson had admitted "his party has pro- :luccd a mess." lie added: "A 'refreshening 1 is not what we need. , . . A face lifting job won't do it, either. , . . Tjie oniy cleanup that will do the Job Is a wholesale clennout of the polUlcnl bosses in Washington."

(Continued Iron- Page » iidered by many as the ultimata successor to the 18-year-old Mo- terran. Dominant Since 1933 MeCarran personally campaigned tor Bible, something he never publicly had done for any other candidate. Another political youngster, Reno Attorney Clifton Young, so, also scored an upset. He defeated Sam Arentz, 40, Pioelie mining executive for the GOP nomine- .ion to Congress. Arenta 1 father, the late Sam, Sr., held Nevada's only house seat in the 1920s. Young campaigned against the I party's old guard, with which ' Arenta was Identified. Young was" one of Gen. Dwighl Eisenhower's earliest supporters; Arentz favored Sen. Robert Taft of Ohio. The nearly complete count gave Young 9,402 and Arcntz 8,379. Incumbent Rep. Walter Baring easily won Democratic raiomlna- tion. Mcchllng is one of a'very few who ever seriously damaged the McCarran prestige in Nevada. McCarran has been Ihe dominant figure in Nevada politics almost since he was elected in 1932. The elderly senator seldom supported the Roosevelt or Truman administrations, however, and there had been increasing criticism among many. Nevada Democratic leaders that McCarran was too conservatice. . Mechling and his pretty dark- eyed wife, Margaret, made political capital of that, Margaret, a Nevada native, formerly was a stenographer for McCarran. The Mecnlings conducted a door- to-door campaign the like of which Nevada had never seen. Mechling^ aimed his campaign more at Me-* Carran than at Bible. Bible auppuriers protested loudly that Mechling was a brash young upstart with no knowledge of Nevada problems. The newsman acknowledged he only came to the state last February. But he added that he was stationed in Nevada with the air force in World War II and had voted by absentee ballot ever since nearly 10 years. Bible has no military record. Mechling boosters ' pointed that out.
