Eisenhower said yesterday he will deckle whether to relulti his young running mate alter Nixon's public report. Dispatches from the Eisenhower campaign '.rain declare the general Is known to have said that Nixon must come "clean as a hound's tooth" in his financial his lory, It has been Nixon's ster.clfnst contention that none o( the disputed fund went Into Ills own pocket. He said that none of the contributors ever asked for or received any special consideration from him. Nixon Denies "Secrecy" Democrats and some Republican criticised use of outside money by a senator, and Eisenhower strategy leaders becnme concerned that tho outcry would embarrass his campaign attack on corruption in Washington. Nixon replied that the fund wns entirely legitimate; that it was never secret and that it permitted him to carry on his fight against communism nnd corruption "abovo and beyond my official duties." Tho 38-year-old California senator arrived here by chartered plane Irom Portland, Ore., yesterday afternoon. A partisan crowd of -300 to 600 persons greeted him with shouts of "We wnnt Nixon ... We want Nixon." Nixon looked tired. There Is no question that tho ordeal of the past week and the chilling possibility of being dropped from the OOP ticket have been a severe strain for both Nixon and his slim, blonde wife Patricia. says the shortages involve only a small percentage of the grain handled in a 10-billion-doUur btor- Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton Open High Low Close Oct 3912 3018 3395 3895 Dec . . 3317 3925 3900 3913 Mar' 3015 3919 3805 3909 May 38K) 3902 3679 3909 New Orleans Carton Open High Low Close 3916 3919 3889 3891 3915 3923 3897 39u7 3912 3918 '3893 3902 3396 3002 3878 3B80 Ocl Dec Miir Mity Soybeans Nov Jan Mi'h Mny New York Stock* A T ond T Amer Tobarco Annconda Copper High Low Close , 299 V, 297 299 '/i . 302V, 290?, . 303!!. - 303 300 y, soon times of big crops to .su.staiti prices under the support programs voted by Congress.

"There is no question of Improper Influence because there was no connection between the contributors and Ihc beneficiaries," the governor's statement said. He said the funds used were left over from the 1948 campaign for Koviirnor, plus later general contributions. "During my administration I have never hoard of any case of a promise, either direct or implied, of any favor In exchange for a contribution," Stevenson said. "My orders were explicit and well known." Chandler's telegram to Stevenson followed recent disclosure that Sen. Richard Nixon, Republican vice presidential candidate, had accepted $18.235 In expense funds from private sources. Chandler Telegram Quoted Chandler, who Is vice chairman of A. D. Dick nnd Company, an office equipment firm, said in his telegram: . "In view of the attack on Senator Nixon because of the privately raised fund nnd your campaign manager's ill-considered charges, it is your responsibility to state publicly that this method of financially assisting public officials Is in keening with the policy you expressed to a group of your friends, including myself nt the Commercial Club April 23 last." Stephen A. Mitchell, Democralic national chairman, has publicly called upon Nixon to resign as a candidate. Chandler, In his telegram asking the governor disclose the names of the contributors nnd recipients and amounts involved, added: "Provided such monies are properly used, there can be no Just criticism of this manner of assisting able ami Intelligent men not blessed wth private incomes to serve their state and country." "II was a Good Idea" Chandler told a reporter that at the Commercial Club meeting Stevenson outlined his policy of using private funds to supplement the pay of men "who were doing excellent jobs, and we all agreed it was a good Idea."

And he said: "They even call a great war in Korea a police action."

Meantime, the Republican preafr. dentlal nominee was pressing th« attack against Stevenson, his Derrv- ocratic opponent. Describing himself as having "» passion for peace," Eisenhower told a cheering crowd of 3,500 persons in Cincinnati Music Hall that Stevenson's foreign policy vlewi show a "faintness of heart" re- j: fleeting the Truman administra- i lion's "surrender of Initiative" to i. the Communists. " j Earlier, he headed a parada which Detective Chief George Pear^ cy estimated was seen by 100,000. I Eisenhower chose Taft's home' town to make a blistering attack on Stevenson, President Truman and Secretary of Slate Acheson on foreign policy issues. ; Points Similar to Taft's Some of Elsenhower's points of attack were strikingly similar to those Taft has been pounding for years. The nominee's over - all theme followed closely that which John Foster Dulte.s. one of his foreign policy advisers, has been preaching in recent months. Essentially, it consisted of the charge that the Truman administration is drifting from one emergency to another tind that Its "pro- ram of bits and piecu;" is permitting Stalin to call the tune for world diplomacy. Without offering specific solutions for any of the international ills, Eisenhower said his goal is to establish America as "the headquarters of freedom." He promised that a Republican administration would (1) "win respect from other peoples," (2) "check the menace of inflation," (3) "establish a foreign policy . .- tthat is) not the product of blaeJB mail extorted by the Soviet Union," (4) have a Stale Department that would work with Congress "not in bitter conflict and mutual distrust but with common sense and common purpose," (5) "substitute candor for guile" and "not exhaust itself trying to hide its mistakes;" and (G) bring "clearness of mind and the steadiness of will" in the quest for peace. Eisenhower, on the offensive, lashed out at Stevenson with these I declarations: "It is not hard to find men of fine intellect and faint heart. But this is no time for men of refined and elaborate indecision." Mammoths were Rbout the size of existing Indian elephants. (10 OUTFITS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!)
