PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIBR NBJVV 'Fighting Mad' Truman to Leave itai Today He'll Tell How 'Republicans Dance For Rich Lobbyists' WASHINGTON Wl — President Truman, fighting: mad at OOP Congressmen, packed up to leave the hospital today. His angry mood was underscored by a promise to tell the voters "how the Republicans dance when a well-heeled lobbyist pipes « tune." Trumnn signed last night a bill Increasing social security benefits by 540 million dollars a year. But he declared maneuvering by the American Medical Association's lobby had impaired "insurance protection for millions of dlsnbled Americans." And he Insisted "(his victory for the lobby, at the people's expense, wns accomplished by n great majority of Republicans In the House." After two straight days without rever—the apparent victor In a bout with a virus Jnlectlon which forced him to cancel all engagements Ihts week—Truman returns to the White House this morning, two days before the opening of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Check-im Completed He entered the plush preslden- tlnl suite st Walter Reed Army Hospital Wednesday for a complete checkup, hts first hospltali- zatlon after more than seven years at the grueling strain of the presidency. While secrecy enveloped Truman's choice of a Democratic presidential nominee, he made no secret of the kind of campaign lie wants leveled at th« Republicans in a two-page statement accompanying the signing of the social eecurlty legislation. The bill, one of 234 the President acted upon while away from his office, increases old age and survivors Insurance benefits by an average of »8 a month. It makes certain Increases In the minimum benefits under the railroad retirement system. September Bring! Change *The*e Increases become effective for the month of September and will add to the incomes of more than 4 J ,£ million people now drawing benefits from these Insurance systems," he said. Both systerni increase from t50 to $76 a month the amount a person can earn without losing Ills Insurance benefit. In addition - members of the armed forces serving from 1941 through 1953 will r'ecelVB the saino employment credit under ihe social security Insurance system that was granted servicemen In World War n. By The Aswclaltd Pr._ Qov. Sid McMath continued his attack on "the Interests" In a speech at Morrllton last night, and a McMnth opponent charged that the administration had paid $5,600 for less than one-tenth of an acre of land for highway purposes. McMath, who'd previously Ijerat- ed the "ixwer trust," attacked the Lion Oil Company in last night's campaign address. He said the power companies and Lion were opposing him because of his support of the Rural Electrification Administration program and his opposition to "the Illegal conspiracy" to raise gasoline prices. The governor, who is seeking a third term, said it was "no coincidence" that R. H. Dlckenhorst of Morrllton, chairman of the Highway Audit Commission w h I c h -soundly criticized the McMath administration, was a member of Hie board of Arkansas Power and Light Company. Jack Holt brought tho charge ol excessive land price in a speech at nlylhcvllle. He said the transaction involved nine-one hundiecl- ths of an a<-ro In While County, but he didn't say exactly where the tract was or who received t h c money. Ho said the "deal" made apparently excessive prices paid for tho Van Burcn-Alma right-of-way, us brought out by the Hlghv/.'iy Audit Commission, "look like R -small-time piker."
