Stevenson Democrats in buluth Speech ABOARD EISENHOWER SPECIAL, (AP) — _„ Dwight D. Eisenhower asserted today the fight against Communism and corruption in government should be carried on "in the American way •which respects the rights of others. Speaking to a chilled crowd in near-freezing weather at Dulllth, Minn., the OOP presidential candidate picked up his theme of Communism-in-government as ho moved his campaign westward. Last night in Milwaukee he hat Indicted the administration which he said was "confused by the opl ate" of Communist deceit. Referring to this speech, Eisenhower said he had wanted to make clear beyond doubl that "when we go after corruption or Communism we do it in the American way" respecting the rights nnd privileges of others. "We can eliminate Communism from the government life fully and fairly," he said. Police estimated that 3,000 persons had turned out for the midmorning talk, braving chill winds off Lake Superior. Then Eisenhower hit at high taxes and what he called "inept" leadership in Washington. "Criminal Folly" Speaking in the 14,000-sent Jtfil- 7,-aukee arena last night, _ to u house-j that.-, flras....abo>)t- twOrtbirds' full — the OOP "presidential nominee ..described efforts to minimize the; communist infiltration into government as "criminal folly." A^rd then he asserted -nt least l.y Implication — that President Truman and Democratic presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson had tried to dismiss the Communists-in'igov- ernment problem lightly. "We have ail hurl enough" Eisenhower said, "ot those who have sneered at the warnings of men trying to drive Communists from high places—but who 'have never had the sense or the stamina to take after tile Communists themselves."

Adlai Stevenson stacked the Democratic farm record today alongside what he said is a GOP "record of obstruction" and told the nation's farmers: "You'd better be careful what you do on election day. The Democratic presidential nominee picked this town in the heart of the corn belt for his second major farm speech of the campaign — a. speech that laid down no new Democratic promises to the people who till the land. Instead, Stevenson cracked down on the Republican farm record and his Republican rival, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. "I don't believe," he said In hts prepared text, "America will entrust ils future to the masters of a house divided against itself on foreign policy, on domestic policy and perhaps most of all on farm policy.'' The Illinois governor pounded at Eisenhower as having admitted being "at sea" on farm problem" and ihen taking bad advice on them.

Taft on Taffs home srounris, jabbing at Eisenhower as embracing Taft and Old Ouard isolationists, and telling the people the Democratic party is tho one that understands their needs. The crowds that saw thc Illinois governor in Ohio were considerably less in numbers nnd enthusi- ism than- those which welcomed Eisenhower to the Buckeye State .wo weeks ago. That was the case both In Cincinnati. Taffs home town, and in Columbus, where Taft and Steven;o\. were speaking almost simultaneously in halls a quarter of a mile apart. Taft said election of Stevenson would mean "a continuation o( the wavering, unstable. pro-Commun- st philosophy that has almost jrought this country to de.-truc- ion." Taft Called "Ross" Stevenson said Taft is "the uncrowned boss of the Republican "— a throw-back to his condition that Eisenhower now has surrendered to the policies of the man he beat out for thc OOP nation.
