Mi ^M* _^ ' 'Political DDT . By JACK BELI, SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) — Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson declared today the Republicans offer in the right against world Communism only a political DDT, "guaranteed to contain no taxes, no anxiety and ho effort." In a scornful indictment of the GOP attitude on (he Korean struggle, (he Democratic presidential nominee said in an address prepared for delivery at the historic Alamo that willingness to defend liberty at any cost is America mightiest weapon. Obviously directing his shaft at Den. Dwight D. Eisenhower, this Republican opponent, the Illinois governor declared: "I have nothing but contempt for those whining politicians who try to lell us that the American people don't know what they are fighting for and have been fighting • for, for more than 150 years. <" "When they tell us the struggle in Korea is unnecessary and meaningless then they ask us (o deny the very meaning of America itself. " Elsenhower has charged that "stu- bungling trapped us into the Korean War" and has suggested American troops can be withdrawn when sufficient South Koreans have been trained to take their places. Sen Robert A. Tall, described by Stevenson as "quarterbacking" Eisenhower's campaign, has called the Korean conflict a "needless" war. Stevenson reopened his offensive against his Republican opponent after taking- steps to solidify his support among regular Democrats in Texas, where the threat of a party bolt has assumed serious proportions.

Garner has said he will vote for the Democratic ticket from top to bottom, in contrast with Gov. Allan Shivers and* Attorney General Price Daniel, who are supporting Eisenhower. Stevenson said in his Alamo speech it would be easy and pos sibly politically wise for him (c, "hint obscurely that there is some quictj and simple way to end this (Korean)struggle." "It would be pleasant to tell you that we can safely withdraw and leave all the fighting to the Asians or ihe Europeans—but I will leave such deceptive suggestions to someone else." he said, adding acidly: "I do not come here to Texas to fight for votes with spears of straw and swords of ice." He said Communism "cannot be shooed away by the Republican brand of political DDT.'guaranteed to contain no taxes, no anxiety ami no effort," adding this observation: "If any man promises you a soft path lo the future—if he invites you to vole for him and then relax in a tax-free paradise—(hen beware." t Sen.

"Adlai Talking Sensibly" He said (he Democratic nominee,. Adlai Stevenson, is talking sensibly about the issues while Eisenhower "makes no secret of the fact that he is trying to play on our emotions."

WASHINGTON «-The head of to the Democratic National Committee said today if Gen. Dwight D Eisenhower has a "scheme" to end the Korean War and won't tell President Truman about it "then lie should explain to the American people why he feels he must withhold a plan which could save American lives." Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell In a statement issued by the committee, said: . "Gen. Eisenhower has led many people to believe, and his word indicates that he has done this deliberately, that he has some secret scheme for a speedy and satisfactory ending of the Korean conflict •If Gen. Eisenhower does not feel that he can offer his suggestion* to the President, then he should explain to the American people why he feels he must withhold a plan which could save American lives" And, Mitchell added, If he does not have such & program, he ought to say so. Eisenhower 'No Deal Man 7 By JAMi;S DEVLIN NEW YORK (AP — Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower says his decisions "have been and will be mine alone" and tliat lit still is a "no deal" man. In a speech last night at Newark, N. J., [he GOP presidential nominee also gave a pat on the back to Gen. George C. Marshall. In his "no deal" statement, Eisenhower appeared obviously to be replying to Democratic accusations that he had come under the thumb of Sea. Robert A. Tall and Sen Joseph McCarthy. In doing so, lie replied also to President Truman's charge at Hartford, Conn., on Thursday that lie was not "sticking by" Marshall, Eisenhower's mentor and wartime chief, Technically, Eisenhower was Weather Arkansas Forecast — pair and slightly cooler this afternoon and tonight.

Adlai Slevcnson An Eisenhower adviser said last week that Eisenhower's best chance of capturing a Southern stale lay in Virginia—provided Byrd did not come nut for the Democratic national slate.

Hague no longer controls Ihe Democratic organization there. Eisenhower himself described ilte gathering as the h-.rsesi hV,i,ju seen in'-a's iour across New Jerr-ey from Camdcii. "Have Listened to Suggestions" The general's foes have painted him as having swung around lo the views of Sen. Taft, whom they describe as an isolationist, and of Sen. McCarthy,. who has linked Marshall's name to what he has termed "a conspiracy of infamy to make the U. s. an easy victim the Kremlin." Without mentioning the senator oy name, Eisenhower responded this way in his Newark speech 1 have listened lo suggestions made to me by Republicans from all parts of the country "But let me make It quite clear as to ray personal responsibility for my ultimate decisions.

Y. ,AP> _ soviet Forel 8 n Minister Andrei Y. VLshinsky today repeated Communist demands for an immediate (ruce In Korea on terms which the United Nations has repeatedly jectcd. These terms Include the return* of ail prisoners to their homelands. The U. N. has steadfastly refused to repatriate forcibly those Red prisoners who sny they do not want to go, and this Issue has deadlocked the armistice negotiations at Panmunjom, In a speech lo the Go-nation U. N. General Assembly, vishlnsky said he supported a "peace plan" put forth yesterday by Poland ns the best hope (or world harmony. This plan was substantially similar to a pack-age proposal Vishin- sky himself made at the assembly session in Paris last year and was regarded by non-Communist diplomats here as holding little hope for easing East-West tension. The acict-tongued Kremlin diplomat spoke to a crowded gathering of top officials, including u S Secretary of stale Dean Acheson', who had expected a thorough airing of now Communist world policy ns drawn up by the recent Moscow party congress. Acheson listened Intently as Vl- shinsky charged that u. N. refusal to return all prisoners was merely a screen for a "policy of extermination" of the Korean people. "The .American government," he said, "obviously does not want to end the war in Korea" and went on to repeat old Russian claims that (he Korean War was being run for the benefit of "American billionaires" who were-reaping "(remend- .o\i* profits" (rpinHlic.fighting.- ,,., The Korean War'; was necessary. Vishinsky charged pointing his finger towards the front row where Acheson sat. to prevent a collapse of the American capitalist economy. W. I.

Auto 'Theit' Turns Out To Be Case of One Key Fitting Two Ignitions The case of a stolen automobile turned out to be merely a mistake today—a mistake and a case of one ignition key fitting two cars. Last nlRht, James T. Bracken of. Blythcvllle reported his 1941 car had been stolen from Its downtown parking place. This morning, the police department received a phone call from n don-ntotvn dentist's receptionist. Yesterday afternoon, she said she became 111 while at work and look a taxi home.

Few mines work over (he weekend, but a general shutdown was expected to occur Monday Coal stockpiles in the hands of consumers averaged around BO days and no immediate Industrial ionic heating off set from the anticipated strike was expected - -The WSB,ruling-on the. case was a major surprise. Cox told n news conference that the $1.50 gives the soft coal miners "cqiml treatment" with the other wage groups, most of whom he said "will have received measurably less" Approval of the full amount Cox said, would have provided a wage increase "greater than any consistent with an honest stabilization program." Failure of the wage Increase to show up m recent pay checks covering the first part of October led to a walkout of more than 150000 soft coal miners. Their protest strike, which spread through the coal fields alt week ion B , needed no prodding from Lewis. It appeared more as a reflex action -they felt their contract was not being honored. Actually, the new contract could !1?L honored legally without W.SI! approval. The amount of the raise Is nearly twice as much as that which cosl-of-livlng pay regulations automatically allow. But labor members of the 18' man board argued during board deliberations the past four days thai other pay regulations, coupled with the rise in the cost of living since Just winter, justified approval of the contract.
