TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1952 Truman Denies Calling follower 'Ants-Jewish' l.l'Iiy JACK KUTLEDGE WASHINGTON I*— President Truman says he diil not call Gen Dwight 13. Eisenhower "anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish". Su?ne Republican leaders, lie says, are "deliberately distorting" his words. "I snid no such thing." the President said in a statement issued yesterday on Ihe eve of his departure on his ncxt-to-last campaign tour for the man ho wants to succeed him, Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois. . At the same time. Truman added, he stanrts by his statement that the GOP presidential nominee "cannot escape responsibility" for his endorsement of Republican senators who pushed through what (he President calls discriminatory Immigration laws. ^He repeated the words in last Friday's sncech read before the Jewish Welfare Board—a speech which is swelling into a major controversy with election two weeks away: "The Republican candidate .. . cannot escape responsibility for his endorsements. He has made nn attack of moral blindness, /or today he Is willing to accept the very practices that Identified the so- called 'master race' although he took a leading part in liberating Europe from their domination." Eisenhower himself took note of the growing controversy yesterday when he told whlstlestop crowds at Providence, R. I., and Allle- boro. Mass. That the administration had accused him of being anti- Semitio and anti-Catholic. "How long can they get to try to sell that sort of thing?" he asked. "I said no such thing," Truman declared In his statement yesterday, "nnd indeed meant no such thing, and any fair person who reads what In fact I did say, must be as shocked as I am by the absurdities in the press of the last few days." But, the President added, he-did 'not withdraw a word" of his Friday statement criticizing the general for endorsing GOP senators who voicd for the McCarran Immigration law—passed by Congress over his veto. "The practices of those senators —the practices of the big lie and of character assassination—are also identified with the so-called 'master race' theory and no amount of distortion can change that fact," Truman went on. "I know that the Republican candidate for president is neither anti- Jewish nor anti-Cothollc, but whs- does he give his endorsement to such men?" Eisenhower, whistle • stopping through snow flurries yesterday, said in a speech at Providence that Ihe opposition, "finding no way to defend its despicable record, has had no recourse except to launch attacks that are as fal'je as they are terrible in nature." "Thank goodness I have got Eiich friends as Cardinal Snellman, Rabbi Silver, and Bernard Barnch to answer those lies In a hurry," El- senhower said. Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver of Cleveland said after Truman's original statement that he was shocked by it. Financier Baruch said he does not agree with Truman. Cardinal Spellman, about the lime Ihe row broke, introduced the general at a New York dicner. B-xh Eisenhower and Stevenson ha\e called for modification of the McCarran act, which among other things retains the quota system— the section attacked most severely by the President and other administration leaders. Sen. Pat McCarran (D-Nev), whom the President has described as "not my kind of Democrat", said yesterday both candidates have been misled about provisions of the law which carries his name. The attack on the law, McCarran said, "Is a calculated effort to sabotage those provisions . . . which are designed to protect Ihis country from subversive penetration."

Blair said he had had "neighborly disagreements" with Young but knew nothing of the killings. In an exclusive interview Blair said today: "Every statement I would make about my whereabouts that terrible afternoon of the killings the officers would tell me I was a liar. "Why, they almost convinced me I was nuts — then I would regain my reason and know I was innocent. "I believe In religion, but I haven't gone to church regular and I haven't done much praying. "I did a little praying this week, though, and from now on I think we'll both go to church a IHtle more often." Sheriff Schooler and Plumas County Dist. Atty.
