PAGE FOURTEEN BLVTHEVJLLE (ARK.) COUBIER TUESDAY, SEPT. »4, Cleveland Audience Is Spellbond As Nixon Seems to Win His Battle By DON WlllTKIIEAD CLEVELAND, O. UV-Last nlglll 16.000 people snt in this city's huge Public Hall in almost hypnotic silence uiitlcr the spell of a voice that was pleading political honesty. It was the voice ol Sen. Richard TELEGRAMS (Continued from Page 1) nation. Sen. Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin Republican — It was a great speech and I believe It clearly vindicates Dick Nixon in the eyes of the nation. Sen, Milton R. Young, North Da- kola Republican — He may wind up more popular limn ever — people will sympathize with him knowing he's n poor mnn, even though some of them may not approve of the fund. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen. Illinois Republican — Nixon's speech will go deep into the hearts of the American people. ... I wonder if the candidates on the other side will do likewise nnd clarify the charges leveled at them. Typir-il r.fti* Comment Nf. Nixon speaking from California. Tho plea was this: He had done no wrong in accepting an $18,000 private expense fund from a Erotip of businessmen—and he had not profited personally from this help. The so people had expected an nddi' by OOP presidential nominee Dwighl D. Eisenhower, whip- lashing the Democratic administration for what he called "cheap money" policies. Hut the candidate delayed this ttilk in order to hear Nixon's nation-wide defense, which was in elfcct n fislit for his political life. While thousands waited in the hall, Kisfinhower sat In a side room ftl with his wife Mamie, and hearing the televi- ttcket. They hroko Into a cheer when Elsenhower strode to the stage and said ;' Tonight 1 saw an example of courage." It looked like Dick Nixon hud won his fight lo be the Republican vice presidential candidate. EISENHOWER the hull watching sion-rndio broadcast. They were alone.

All questions about hta Integrity were answered 100 per cent. Jess Card, Oregon — Dick has made a complete admission of all bis financial affairs and has fully exonerated himself as far as tho money Is concerned. Harry Darby, Kansas — I am sure American people accepted ihe explanation as not only complete btu satisfying." David T. Martin, Nebraska — 'Nebraska, Republicans demand that Sen. Nixon remain on ticket." G. Mason Owlelt, Pennsylvania— The attempt lo smear Nixon will be a tremendous boomerang against the Democrats." Several others said they would rather not comment as yet. On the other hand: Mayor David L. Lawrence of * Pittsburgh, a member of the Democratic National Committee, "Nixon made n very weak case for himself. He didn't give a breakdown of the fund." The public reaction was »pon leneous In every nook and corner ol ihe co untry. Kansas City reported that some women were crying as they telephoned newspapers and rndlo stations for information'about how to address wires to Nixon. Three women in Rochester, N. Y., said Nixon should bo running lor president, not vice president. qun.slloned There was only the sound of the voice. There was no television screen curryi::?; the Iniaye of the senator. Only the voice. The sea of faces stared toward the platform as though the voice WHS coming from the speaker's rostrum. ". . . That Is why 1 am here .anight. I want to tell you my side ot tho case . . ." The voice went on. On the .speaker's singe, Sen. Taft lenfcd through a little black notebook. He shuffled some papers hi uis hands.

The gcncrnl went into the booth and closed the doors. A curious crowd gathered quickly in the station. The the telephone booth door opened nnd Eisenhower leaned out to talk to AdnniSj who then squeezed into the booth wllh the general. After an 8-mfmita conversation, Adams tolil a reporter an announcement would he mrule immediately. Elsenhower went back -to his train compart ment. The meeting of the two GOP candidates awaits the working out of details by their two staffs. It may be delayed beyond Elsenhow- er's scheduled whistle-stop appearance in Wheeling, W. Va., tonight. Elsenhower told a tumultuous audience of 16,000 persons jam-packed Into Cleveland's Public Hall last night that his vice presidential running male had given ' nn example of courage" in a radio-television cport from Los Angeles on Nixon's Innnclal affairs. The grim-faced presidential can- iidate evoked a roaring response as he declared: I happen 16 be one ot those jeople who, when I get in a fight, vould rather have a courageous ami honest man at my side than n vhole boxcar of pussyfootcrs." But he added: "It is obvious that I have to lave something more than one single presentation — necessarily .Imited to 30 minutes, the time nllotcd lo Sen. Nixon." Nixon, in nn emotional rccount- from Pflg« li «an to do likewise. He hit Sloven- son's reported fund lor Illinois officials and Bpnrkman't; employment of hia wife. Gov. Stevenson, in Baltimore* declined lo comment on Nixon's remarks. Hut Spark mnn, in Granc Island, Neb,, retorted: "Nobody )ms accused me of get ting $18,000 and I haven't any ex pense fund." Sen. Sparkman said his wife hat worked 10 years and "earned cvcrj dollar she ever got." He addcc that he has never used all of Die money allotted him for office pense, saying, "I turn back $10,00< or $12,000 every year." Senators receive $50,000 annual ly for office and operational pcnses over nnd above a $15 salary. Nixon did not give a break down of his $50,000 allowance. He contended there were add: lionnl political demands "taxpny crs shouldn't be required to f nance." He did not give Ihe breakdown of expenditures of the controversial $18,235 fund In his Ulk. But he released an audit report from Price, Waleihouse and Co., ac- L-cisntants, showing: Totul disbursement of $18,168.87, of which $5,102.15 went lo Nixon from Nov. 15, 1950, to Aug. 20, 1952.

STEVENSON from P«0* » Hving. Wage and price controls, he said, may have to be tightened, not fur- her relaxed—a last-minute revision in the original lexl. Stevenson watched Nixon's television broadcast through the first :ew minutes but had to leave lor his own speech before the California .senator finished. Afterward, reporters told him that, Nixon said he was placing his case in the hands of the Republican National Committee for final decision. They asked for com ment, and Stevenson replied: "I don't think I'll have anything lo say on that." The Democratic presidential candidate said several days ago that "condemnation without Ascertaining the facts would be wyong." There are no surface evidences of satisfaction in Stevenson's camp over the Nixon case. In fact, correspondents who have been covering- the governor's campaign have litini'd litUe discussion of it among his staff, one way or the other. Stevenson did not refer to Nixoi in his address last night. Inflation Issue Pursued He concentrated on carrying the 3 Ihe Republicans on a \ ssuc of this campaign—inflatioi uid costs of living. The GOE* has accused the Truman administni ion of cheapening (he dollar, caus ng high prices, and pursuing a lolicy of deficit spending. Stevenson said this is not so. High taxes and high costs of living, he told an audience of about 8,500 people in Baltimore, Eire the result of necessary military spending, caused by the threat front Soviet Russia. And he added: ' The great majority of Republicans in Congress voted to end rent control. . . . Four times, a majonty of the Republicans voted to end controls on all things con* sumers buy." He called Taft "the the inflationary shock Congress/' Stevenson offered a four-point program for combatting inflation: beat of my heart, no less than with th« certalnlty of my mind hat tills is going to be another Toud year for those of us who >elieve In the principles of the Democratic party." He put high prices on a level with peace as a major problem jefore the American people. "As s the government is concerned," he said, "It must give both problems top priority." He hit back at a Republican claim—that Inflation is in part a result of waste and mismanagement in government—with a homely analogy. ''It's like a husband coming into the kitchen, seeing one jotato peeling that is too thick, and exploding that now he knows why you can't make ends meet." But the governor carefully add ed, 'I am for the government's peeling its potatoes with a sharp iciilfe and a miserly eye." He argued, in sum, that inflation annot be cured simply by econ omy and management in government. tie then laid down the four points of his formula for meeting the Inflationary problem. On government expenditure, he said: "Government must spend ever> penny as though it were a $5 bill and it must not spend a penny foi anything that is not needed right now. ... I have vetoed more appropriations in Illinois than any governor in our history. "We will have to make most of our savings in the military departments. You know, perhaps, that 85 cents out of every dollar the government spends goes now for paying the costs of past wars and preventing another one. . . , Bui I don't believe in ihe theory that military budgets are sacred a::d untouchable." On taxation— "The government lias lo keep Itself just as close us possible to a pay-as-we-go tax standard. When we collect taxes to pay for them, we help stop inflation." leader troops ADVERTISEMENT FOR BIDS SEWER IMPROVEMENTS Sealed proposals will be received by the Board of Commissioners of Sewer Improvement District No, 4.
