MONT)AY, NOV. 8, 1952 BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)" COTJHICT PAGE THKE1 1 Wtot «/M N«xf President Thinks— Here's a Capsule Summary Of Ike ane Adlai's Views ' Br CHARLES F. BARRETT WASHINGTON, 1*1 — A capsule •ummary of views expressed by Dwight D. Elsenhower and Adlal E. Stevenson on major issues: KOREA Elsenhower — Bungling by Truman administration led to Communist aggression; that made decision to intervene Inescapable. South Koreans should be trained to man the front lines', reducing U. 8. losses. The Democrats can't b* counted on to find a solution; Eisenhower will go to Korea personally to see what should be done toward ending the war. Stevenson—The decision to Intervene may be a turning point in history, preventing a bigger war. Republicans have wavered between reckless calls to expand the Korean War and weak-kneed moves lo quit. The U. S. for many months already has been doing all It can to train! ; South Koreans »nd put them In battle lines. Stevenson will not make false promises of an easy way out even if It costs him the election. CORRUPTION Stevenson—There has been corruption involving a minute fraction of federal employes, and many of the cases have been exposed by Democrats. Stevenson could do a better. Job fighting dishonesty because he has learned as governor of Illinois how to wield the axe on both parties. Eisenhower — Venality and outright theft of the peoples' money has been staggering. Much worse, the administration has consistently condoned corruption. No man who owes his election in any degree to the administration can clean up. He would rather be defeated than be elected by men who have lost their morals. COMMUNISM Eisenhower — Communists have plundered the U. S. • of highest diplomatic and military secrets. It Is time to clean out a leadership that has failed to see Communists seeping into vital government offices, that has been complacent and has tolerated Russian spies. Stevenson—He would deal mercilessly with Communists. Eisenhow er clamors loudly but what woulc he do? Would he fire FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and other secui- ity officials, who have infiltratec the innermost ranks of the Com munist party and exposed one con spirator after another? MCCARTHY Stevenson—Eisennower seems to have embraced or been embraced by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), defam er of Gen. George C. .Marshall "champion of slander." A few "peddlers of hate" .would not be 'Important if they had not been in eluded In the leadership of Eisen .bower's crusade. For all his talk. McCarthy has yet to uncover evi deuce leading to conviction, of a single Communist agent. Eisenhower — He supports Me Carthy as a member of (he Re publican organization. He and Me Carthy have the same goal of ric ding the government of the subver sive and disloyal, but they diffe on method. Eisenhower will neve approve unjust damaging of repu tation. He has no patience wit anyone'who criticizes Marshall, great patriot. "SURRENDERS" Eisenhower—Stevenson has bee taken over body, boots and breech es by the Truman : administrate and stands revealed today as captive candidate. 'The Democrai offer not a change of heart bu only a change of face. Stevenson—The biggest fact Eisenhower has surrendered to Sen. Taft <R-Ohto) and the Repu- jlican Old Guard, a team of isO' ationists and reactionaries who have opposed progress at home and abroad for 20 years. (Both Elsenhower and Stevenson have denied they are captives of anybody or have yielded ground on their convictions.) CIVIL RIGHTS Stevenson — He has been very much impressed by a bill In Congress to set up a federal commission to promote fair employment practices, to act only if states themselves do not take proper steps against discrimination. He would support a move lo change congressional rules to stop cease less debate. (Filibusters have been used to block civil rights bills in I he past). Eisenhower—The gravest charg' gainst the Truman administration ay b« shoddy cheap politics in th< eld of human rights. Wrongs havi een left uncorrectcd io win vote: i election after election. He wouli nd segregation in the District .o olumbia, which th Truman inlstration did not do. He woulc xert leadership to persuade th tales to end Job riiscriminatio Ithout federal compulsion, an lin ossible handicap. ORGANIZED LABOR Elsenhower—He would not repea ut would favor amending the Taft Hartley Act. The law could be use o break unions, and that must be hanged. Stevenson wants compu ory arbitration or seizure powe: Eisenhower rejects compulsion o rounds the right of men to leav heir Jobs is a test of freedom. Stevenson—The Taft-Hartley Ai has not improved labor relation nd must be repealed. A substitut aw should not. attempt a precis ornmla for all national emergenc trikes but should give the Pres dent a choice of mediation, coi inued private negotiation, arbitr; ion or seizure. The right to ba gain does not Include the right stop the national economy. FARM POLICY Stevenson — Farmers have bee lelped to their present prosper by Democratic programs such a irice supports, soil conservatio lood control, rural electrificalio research". Democrats will kee price supports at 90 .per cent larlty. Although Eisenhower al 'Butty' Isn't Nervous Over Chance of Being First Lady Br BETH' PBOSSER BLOOM1NGTON, 111.

"" No Hitch-Hiking WINNIPEG, Canada (/P) — The University of fclanitoba has ruled against the old practice whereby students thumbed their way from the suburban campus to the center of the city. Believing the practice slowed traffic, the officials announced "thumbers" would be fined $1. to reduce spending and taxes. But the budget should he reduced only as national security permits. Cuts of tens of billions would be like disbanding the Army, renouncing friends abroad and crawling in a cave to await destruction. Eisenhower-—The present expenditure program is reckless and extravagant to the point of sheer folly. Democrats are stale and self satisfied and complacently say nothing much can be done. Republicans say big savings are possible without reducing defensive power. (Sen. Taft, In a statement he said was approved byTSlsenhower, said 10 billion could be cut next year Engagement Ring Woes PITTSBURGH, Pa.

Republicans will the trend ^toward regirrienta- :Ion of farmers by Washington and seek farmer participation and cooperation. Democratic politicians have used farm programs to win votes. Inflation ! Eisenhower—Inflation is a policy of the present administration, designed to fool Uie people by giving them more money that is worth less. Controls over prices are weak stopgaps. The administration^ has ignored really effective .inflation controls over money and credit. STEVENSON—The Republican Old Guard is the best friend Inflation ever had. It voted against price controls. We have Inflation today because the Kremlin started the Korean War. Stevenson favors control by direct ceilings, when needed, credit and monetary policies, and a pay-as-we-go budget if possible.

ADAMS, Mgr. 206-208 W. Main Phone 2071 BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS PHONES: D«y 3142; Night 4153 A MESSAGE for AMERICANS from General Eisenhower Once before I had the honor and duty of leading a crusade for human freedom and dignity—in Europe during World War II. That crusade was won not by Generals and Admirals but by the blood and effort of American G.I.'s and all the other forces fighting for freedom. Now in 1952 a different call to duty has honored me—as Republican nominee for President of the United States. ' ' This time the effort is civilian—not military. But again, the crusade will be won not by me nor by the political leaders, but by everyday Americans who value their National heritage and are willing to go to the polls and vote to protect it. THIS IS A CRUSADE TO: -^C Sweep Out of Government the corruption and scandal w h i c h have brought us dishonor at home and disrespect abroad. ' -J)c Banish the Subversives and inco mpetents who have crucified both good public service and good public servants. -^e Build a Strong Economy not based on war. ^ Save Our Great, Free Nation from the reckless policies which are leading America down the road of bankruptcy — Socialism— and possibly even World W orld War III. AMERICA NEEDS YOU . . . I hope that you, too, believe the time has come for a complete change in our National leadership — a change which will restore courage, integrity and faith in American Government.
