PAGE SIX '(ARK.)' 'OOUKTBH Here Is Comparison of Key Planks In GOP and Democratic Platforms CHICAGO tfl—Here is » comparison of key planks In the 1952 Democratic and the 1052 Republican platforms: Civil rights: Democratic—"We favor federal say we cannot afford Ihe expense and effort necessary to defend ourselves." Republican—"We should develo- op with utmost speed a force In . as distinguished from paper legislation effectively to secure plans, of such power as lo deter these rights to everyone: <1) the right to equal opportunity for employment; (2) the right to security of persons; £3) the right lo full and equal participation in the nation's political life. . . . We urge that action be taken at the beginning of the 83rd Congress to improve congressional procedures so that majority rule prevails and decisions can be made after reasonable debate without being blocked by a minority in either house." Republican—-'''.'.^ believe that It Is the primary responsibility of each state to, order and control its ou'n domestic institutions, nnd Ibis power, reserve lo the states, is essential (o the maintenance of our federal republic. However, we believe that the federal govern sudden attack or promptly nnd decisively defeat it. This defense against sudden attack requires the quickest po.s-sible development of . . . air power nnd the simultaneous readiness of co-ordinatrd nir, land and sea forces." Labor: Democratic—"We strongly nrtvo- cate the repeal of the Taft-llartley Act. . . .(It) has been proved to be inadequate, unworkable nnd unfair." Republican—"We fnvor Ihe retention of the Tart-Hartley Act . . . (but with) such amrnrimenlK . . . ns time and experience show to be desirable." Agriculture: Democratic—"We will continue lo protect (he producers of basic agricultural commodities tinder the for all farm products in the market place." Tax reduction: Democratic—"As rapidly as defense requirements permit, we favor reducing taxes, especially for people with lower Incomes. But we will not Imperil our nation's security by making reckless promises to reduce taxes." Republican—"We advocate . . . reduction of expenditures by the elimination of waste and extravagance so that the budget will be balanced find a general tax reduction can be made." Subversives In government: Democratic—"The loyalty program of President Truman has served effectively to prevent Infiltration by subversive elements and to protect hnncst and loyal public servants against unfounded and malicious attacks." Republican — "By the administration's appeasement of communism at home and abroad, it has permitted Communists and their Icllow travelers to serve In many ment should take supplemental a-;-1 port program nt not less th . in ~ 00 (Jon within Us constitutional Juris- per cent of parity." Republican—"We favor a farm program aimed at full parity prices terms of a mandatory price sup-| key nircnclo.i and to inliltrate our diction against race, reunion or national origin. . . . We will prove our good faith by ... enacting federal legislation to further Just and equitable treatment In the area of 'discriminatory employment practices. Federal uclion should not duplicate state efforts to end such practices; should not set up another huge bureaucracy." Foreign policy: Democratic—"We pledge our unremitting efforts to avert another world war. . . . We will continue our efforts to strengthen the United Nations. . . . We reject the ridiculous notion of those who would have the United States face the aggressors alone." Republican—"The present art- ministration, in seven years, has squandered the unprecedented power and prestige which were ours at the close of World War II. ... We shall encourage and aid the development of collective security forces. . We shall support the United Nations. . . . We shall always measure our foreign commitments so thai they can bo borne without endangering Ihe economic health or sound finances of the United States." National defense: Democratic — "The Democratic party will continue to stand unequivocally for strong, balanced defense forces for land, sea and air. the defeatist view this country— Wo reject American life. We pledge fair but vigorous enforcement of laws to safeguard our country from subversion and disloyalty."

In a speech to the Democratic convention last night Rnyburn stressed the don't-changc-horsos- in-midstrenm Idea with which the Democrats hope to win In November. "The Republican leadership tells you that you oupht to change," Rayburn said. "I suggest that you treat this proposition with deep distrust. "What they ask of you Is n modest request from their point of view. It Is only that you trade your new car for an old buggy; swap your television set for a mWic lantern; Jump from the bed Into n strait-jacket of unccrtaintv." Rayburn told the delccatcs t h e OOP tried, after choosing Gen. DuJghl D. Eisenhower as Us presidential nominee, to sfiy a new Republican party had been horn. But he said: "The proof that nothing has changed Is clear. . . . It is the same old party with a new candidate. . . .
