BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 1954 Truman Warns Of Using Tactics Of U*f Of Ptaying on Ftars F*r Partisanship Ends FULTON, Mo. (AP) — Harry %u«ian declared last night mat in fighting a fifth column iff the United States "we should be sure that we do not fall into the trap of adopting fee totalitarian tactics of the Communists themselves." '"Ihe nature of the Communist conspiracy is such that in combat- ting it we have had to scrutinize. very closely, the lives of many citfiens," the former President said. "This is part of the struggle against espionage. But in resisting the enemy, we must not tear ourselves apart." He said that demagogues in this country "are. playing on our fears to further partisan political ends." Speaking about "political bogeymen who proclaim themselves custodians of our freedom," he apparently referred to Sen. McCarthy (R-WIs) without mentioning his name when he remarked: "There is even one among them whose torrent of wild charges is calculated to damage the faith of Americans in the integrity of their government. army, schools, churches, their labor unions, and the press. Most of all he is threatening to undermine the respect and confidence Americans must have in one another. "The cause of freedom both at home and abroad is damaged ». great country yields to hysteria." GIANT CARRIER—The British claim that the Blackburn Bev- Criey Is the largest air freighter in the world. It supposedly can #tt 28 tons and can be converted from a freighter to a passenger plane capable of carrying 132 passengers. Powered by four engines, the Beverley can operate from 1000-foot runways and can float down to land like a helicopter. The plane is being tested in London lor the Royal Air Force. Georgescu Boys Near Reunion with Mother NEW YORK (AP) — The two Georgescu boys, held hostage by Red Romania seven years in a fruitless effort to get their father to spy on his adopted America, flew the last leg of their journey today for a joyous reunion with their mother. Their home coming meal will include steak, said overjoyed Mrs. Georgescu. The boys flew from Germany yesterday with their Romanian- born father, 50-year-old Valeria C. Georgescu. whose bold rejection of Communist spy demands gained wide attention last May and caused W^minster -a,, of the:fct secretary of the College, where he was scheduled to give another talk today on his presidential papers. He * delved, into "mass hysteria and witch hunting in American history" and said that witch hunters "are on the loose again, often cloaked with immunity, and armed with subpoenas and the cruel whiplash of unevaluated gossip. "•' Be said history is filled with examples of temporary mob excitement, stirred by false or exaggerated charges, resulting in injury to innocent people. "On various occasions, down through the years, mass hysteria has gripped the populace for temporary periods, resulting in a witch hunt," he added. "There is a common pattern in the development of this hysteria. "Usually it takes root in an atmosphere of war, severe economic crisis or a threat of either. Insecurity is a fruitful breeding ground for such a movement. In an atmosphere of this kind demagogues or other individuals can more easily stir up emotional and irrational fear."
