Elsen- hower says Adlat Stevenson's White House visit shows the Truman administration is determined to continue its policies through a hand-picked successor. These ' policies, Elsenhower charges, have carried the nation to a situation "of bewilderment, indecision and fear for the future." In his sharpest attack on the Democrats since his own nomination for the presidency, Eisenhower declared last night in a written statement the Washington conferences between Gov. Stevenson of Illinois and administration leaders presented these "far-reaching implications:" 1. The question as to whether the President anrt his Cabinet "can possibly contemplate using resources of the federal government to influence the judgments of voters." 2. An Implied decision to involve non-political officers, through the inclusion of military and national security personnel in (he meetings, in a political campaign "in which thev have no part." No Changes Seen . "The obvious fact that the Democratic party, if given another four years to control our destinies, would not change its policies."

The last remark was an obvious slap at President Truman's seizure of the sleel industry under what Truman termed the Inherent powers of the government.
