TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1952 "i Sen. Nixon Tours Missouri with Praises lor Ike GOP Candidate Raps Stevenson in Talk At East St. Louij ABOARD NIXON .TRAIN IN MISSOURI i» — Republican Sen Richard M. Nixon carried his vice -presidential campaign Into Mis- •ourl today, expressing confidence of victory for the GOP ticket ,. t Following trainside talks »i t)',,- c e •SOMIS between St. LOUI, and Cape Girardeau, Nixon was scheduled to fly Into Ihe Southwest part of the state lor an airport appearance at ' fo P m' n nt lield " nd a * pecch at J °' Jlin i His swing ),)(„ President Truman s home slate followed strong ! vel ? al M *s(s at Gov. Adlai steven- _ son s administration in Illinois dur- , Jng a our of Ihe Southern part of that stale yesterday. The California senator said In a lalle at East St. Louis, 111., last ri.qrht thst Stevenson's record us governor "exposes him us a'Veak- liii!?, a waster antl a small caliber Tiunian." Hall Packed An audience which packed a 3.000-seal hall with several hundred other persons outside heard him say last night that Gen. Eisenhower Is the master of the OOP campaign. He said lhat was his "outstanding Impression" from a meeting between the two at New York over the week end. ' He Is the captain of Ihe team In the very best sense of the word,'.' Nixon said. ^'VVith due regard for his team members and their abilities, he is calling the plays." ' He said Stevenson had a "black record" of scandals in cigarette v trxes, race track stock, insurance j-Jnd horsemeat in the stale administration. The governor's record, Nixon said, "shows him to be a Grade A spendthrift." EISENHOWER (Continued from Page 1) route for the early morning imir starting- at 8:30 a. m. was sparse compared with the late afternoon and evening throngs that greeted him yesterday in southern New England cities. Mill workers remained in their plants but watched from windows as Eisenhower's motorcade parsed by. Pushing himself and thosea round him at a machine-gun pace, the GOP presidential candidate put aside lofty appeals for the most part in fnvor, of ramrod counterattacks against the Democrats. Through 'virtually every speech he made in this industrial Northeast ran a scarlet thread of anger and his party. • Elsenhower was drawing big and enthusiastic crowds at each stop Even snow flurries and cold winds failed to drive the people indoors Late, yesterday — as Eisenhower was running behind schedule — crowds waited in the cold for more than an hour to see htm and hear him talk. He spoke in some cities where Truman spoke last week and although^ Trunnin had the better of it in weather, police figured the general was out In-front on crowd- pulling appeal. Broke Even Police estimated "the two broke nbout even on crowd sizes in Providence, R. I.. 13,000, and Worces- , ter, Mass., 8.000,- but they said that j In Fall River, Mass., and Taunton Mass., Eisenhower had oul-pullec Truman 2-1 in each city—10,000 to Eisenhower got his biggest responses when he assailed the Democratic administration. He was nuking liberal use of such words as "lies" and "falsehoods" and -^corruption" and "distorlonts." He JRas fighting to smother whatever democratic fires Truman might have started on his swing through this same area last week. The politically doubtful stale of Massachusetts again wns the main . Eisenhower target today. After an \ opening speech in Manchesler. N. O.H.. he was to speak in Boston at 1 noon, and Ihen fly to New York City | late in the day for an evening ad•v dress before Hie New York Herald .- Tribune Forum. j Yesterday lie began his last-lap , campaign with 12 speeches and he ;; .had another seven on the schedule ;.J for today. And there was no sign !; : he intended to slacken this pace M before etction ever regardless of V. weather. V The GOP presidential candidate '••> opened this final phase of his cam: paign by saying that he interVd '-' to discuss throughout New tug- y land the relationship between world * peace and American prosperity. : Slronjr American i On this theme he said that the ;j cornerstone of peace 'must be a ii strong America — strong economl- '{ cally, spiritually7 militarily. > He promised nn administration '( which would marshal the resources t of Ihe nation to prevent another J depression and declared the ! "crime of depression" would never 1 happen again. He held out the -^ffomise atfo. fo full employment at : high wages, a government without \ corruption, and a leadership that j would set the nation on the road ; t<J peace. I Cut with increasing bitterness he referred to charges lhat he said the opposition was peddling against ' him and his party. On this score, he asserted over and over that hi.s opponents were waging a '.'hate and fear campaign" in which he was being ac- Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton Open Hieli r.oiv 1:15 Dec 3713 3119 368ii 3695 Mch 3131 U737 3701 3115 May 3729 3737 3705 3717 -MS' 3697 3700 3072 3682 N«w Orleans Cotton Open High Lo W i ;15 Dec . ...... 37H 3713 3632 -3E90 Mc'l 3733' 3734 3101 3719 May 3728 373(5 3103 3111 July 3638 3704 3573 3C8I Chicago Wheat Open High Low 1:15 Dec . .. 231i; 237-H 236»i 237H Mch . .. 243 f :i 244- 243 244 Chicago Corn Open High Low 1:15 Dec . .. 167V1 167'i 106;i 167'S Mch . ,. ni^i nnf, 17116 i7Ft Soybeans Open High Low 1-15 Nov . .. 297 H 298 206 V, 29T4 Jail . ..301 301 ij 2053; 30] i fj Mch . .. 302'', 302IS 301% 30-»i May . .. 302« 363'i 30Hi 303»', N«w York Stock* TRUMAN BLYTHEVILLE' (ARK.)

(Continued from Page'*!) lasl week, he hsd been urged to discuss the civil rights Issue and declared himself "In favor of the principles," but obviously. Truman said, he does not know "the hard (acts of life about this subject " "He Iblnks he will call a con-' fercuce of governors to fix things," Truinnn said. "But I can (ell you it will take more Ihan that to break down Ibe barriers of prejudice." He continued; "Why put a man in the White House who wants to call a conference, when you can put in Adlal Stevenson, who moved in with Ihe Nation Guard to stop the Cicero riots, who abolished segregation In Ihe Illinois National Guard by executive order — who eliminated ,rnce from the Illinois State Employment Service forms—and who 1 helped end seeregailon In the Illinois public schools?"

Again, .as he did at Boslon las week, Truman brought up Eisen hower's reference to Oliver Crom well, a name tliat still with many Irish Catholics. ' "The Republican candidate fo president advises parly worker to appeal .to emotion rather than lo reason," he said. "He tells (hen to look lor inspiration, not to £ man like Al Smith, bul rather ic another general—Oliver Cromwell i;i whose, religious wars lie says he finds a model for injecting spi: . and enthusiasm inlo his own can paign." j Then, turning jo GOP criticism 'of his administration, lie said: I "The < Republican high command has become so blind and so des perate that it has gone all "on in spreading the outrageous false hood lhat your President and your government in Washington are sof toward communism. They havt used every propaganda technique and hugs sums of money to trj lo put this big lie over on ihe American people." .The President said thai many o the measures taken to fight com munism here and abroad couldn' even be mentioned for securil; reasons, but he cited oihers as'. 1.

He will begin Intensive whistle- slop.speaking In South Bend, Ind tomorrow but the obvious primary goal i n his flnn i campaign B - w , will be New York nnd Its rich 45 electoral votes toward the 2G6 needed for a national victory. He will make more than 30 appearances in New York on a trip lhat also will take him Into Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, Indiana, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, West Virginia and Delaware before his return to Illinois. Wyalt classified Illinois, New York. California, Michigan and Ohio as among slates where he said the outcome will be "hard fought," but In which he contended the Democrats will win. He called Ihe South and border slates—with the exception of Maryland — safely Democratic, along with Minnesota and Massachusetts, He added lhat Pennsylvania "Icuks very much better than it did a week ago." Wyatt said (hat while he thinks the national popular vole will be close. "I believe the electoral vote will be of landslide proportions for Stevenson." Despite these public claims, it wns evident that some of Stevenson's supporters expect the electoral outcome to be close and would be surprised if the Democratic nom inee gels more than 300 at the outside. Although they count Texas awd its 24 electoral votes 'as safely in their column as a result of last week's Invasion of the Lone Star Stale, some of Stevenson's friends concede privately that Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower may break into the Solid South. They regard Virginia, with voles,_ and Ploridn, with 10, as their weakest points south of the Mason and Dixon Line. Even without these tivo, however, they could roll up lie electoral votes in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kenlllcky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tcrnep«ee and Texas. Confident of 167 With thnt'as a base, ihcy say they are entirely confident of boosting this total to 167 wllh 19 from the (hree border slates of Missouri. Oklahoma and West Virginia, plus Washington's nine. As some of them figure it, they probably will tiave to get the remaining 104 needed for Ihe 266 total from these states: New York, 45; California, 32; Illinois, 27; Massachusetts, 1C; Michigan, 20, and Minnesota, 11. This doesn't mean thnt the Stevenson camp Is giving up hopes of carrying such stales as Connecticut with eight electoral-voles; Indiana, 13; Maryland, nine; New Jersey, 16; Ohio, 25, and Pennsylvania, 32.' But the governor's most realistic strategists admit their job is considerably tougher In those elates. Significantly, perhaps, they are not counting on Ihe midwest, with the exception of Illinois,- Missouri Minnesota and Michigan. Nor ore they, too hopeful in the Rocky Mountain states, oulslde of Montana. Stevenson's best chance of victory, they believe, lies In what they read as a surge of fndepen- riant voters to Ihe Illinois governor's cause. They ' are counting heavily on such a surge In New York and California, Jor example COAL (Continued irom Page I)'' a strike.
