The Republican nominee will confer with party leaders and labor and agriculture groups at Lansing, Hut following the conferences, Dowey plans to take time out from politics to visit hi.s mother at his birthplace, Owosso. Michigan. Dewey delivered the second major address of his coast-to-coast campaign tour at Louisville. Kentucky last night. Speaking to tho convention of Republican Women's clubs and to n crowd which jammed tfip Louisvilltj armory to thn r.Hl'tcrs, Dewey pledged the Republican party to non-partisan efforts to shape and maintain world peace. The half-hour speech was devoted entirely to foreign policy. Dewey said the big problem facing Ameri- cais not how to stay out of a future war, hut how -to prevent a future war before it happens. The P.epub- ican candidate endorsed the four- lowcr Dumbarton Oaks tentative igrcement for a world security or- ;iini/.ation. Cut he warned that \merica and a few strong friends must not assume the right to rule he world. Me declared that the nighty must make common cause vih the loss pov.x-rful in the intc-i 1 s'.s of justice and peace. At this point Dowey injected the nly partisan note of the u'ddress. .•hen he referred to the need for nternntionnl cooperation to get long with our neighbors. Dowey ecla:-fd that he did not mean get- ng along with what he called "the hllosuj^hy of the Washington Vaster:;." who. he claimed, have t-en proposing that America should •y to buy the good will of the orld, Such a policy. Dewey asserted, is no way to win friends or to influence people. The C-O-F nominee also, departed from his prepared text lo repeat his charge that the Roosevelt administration plans to keep nien in the army after victory because it is afraid of another depression. This charge of Dewey's has slirred some comment in Washington. Wsir Mobilization Director James Byrnes has-said the Roo.-:o velt administration already is on record as favoring the discharge f men from the armed forces as soon after the war as possible. .Byrnes cited hi.s own testimony on army demobilization before a Sen- committee last June. And he dt-clan.-d there is no fear in the administration about releasing men from tho army. Meanwhile. Dewey's running mate --Governor John Bricker of Ohio —will formally accept the Republican vice-presidential nomination in a .speech at French .Lick. In:liana. tonight. Bricker is believed •i have decided !o make the ad- .iress at the annual meeting of the Indiana Republican Editorial asocialion in an effort to carry the hor'l<-.rli"" st-ite of Indiana the C-O-P ticket. And while the political discus• ions concern foreign affairs, American, British and Canadian officials are laying the groundwork fo:' the next meeting between ('resident Roosevelt and [''rime Minister Churchill.
