Memories of Truman ESTHERV1LLE DAILY NEWS, TUES., DEC. 26, 1972 Page 11 INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — This is how Harry S. Truman extressed himself on a variety of subjects: His religion: "I'm a Baptist, if that means anything. I've been a member of that church since I was 17, but frankly, all the religion I have is found in the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. Read them some time if you don't think it is all there." On politics: "I've had a lot of mud thrown at me in my years of politics, but none stuck and I never threw any mud back. As president I tried to do what was best for the most people." (Sept. 17, 1953) On his rise from precinct level to White House: "I am the only one I know of who did that. I am a politician and I don't claim to be anything else." On the necessity for strong armed forces: "I don't like military government. I think it is necessary for the people to be in control. As long as we have a president — a president who is civilian — there is no danger of a military In late "5 *ears. dictatorship. As long as the people control the government, there is no need to worry about a dictatorship. (Kansas City, May 16, 1953) On Working: "It's not hard work that gets a man into trouble. It's the lack of it. When a fellow has nothing to do he gets into devilment." (Jan. 22, 1953) On Soviet leaders: "They're nothing but a set of damned liars. I wouldn't trust them across the street. They've got 700 million Chinamen who can walk into their back door. They're scared to death and we want to keep them that way." (Las Vegas, Nev., Nov. 11, 1963) On civil rights demonstrations: ''If northern busybodies Says Iowans Understood DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)"Harry Truman held a special place in the affection of Iowans," Gov. Robert Ray said Tuesday in reaction to the former president's death, "and Iowa held a special place in the affection of Harry Truman." Ray said Iowans understood and respected Truman's clear thinking and direct speaking, his mixture of humility and brashness, his simplicity of life, his loyalty to family, friends and home. "Through no fault of his own, Mr. Truman went into the White House almost totally uninformed about world-shaping policies of the allied powers," Ray said. "Yet, from the beginning, he never flinched or drew back from some of the hardest decisions ever faced by an American president," the governor continued. "hi his own famous phrase, 'He stayed in the kitchen and took the heat,' on&se of the atom bomb, on rebuilding western Europe, on resisting communist aggression wherever it arose, and on transforming American society friam,w*r ,tp peace," Raysaid 1 _ J ^___ 3lu> e STMTS THURSDAY, DEC. 28 CLOSED WED.

These youngsters, who are running around the country trying to initiate mob rule, were raised under the nutty theory of 'let the child grow like a weed with no home discipline.' It is a lazy way to raise a family. These young rioters were not spanked enough as they grew up. The police should be furnished with nice old-fashioned butter paddles and be authorized to use them in the place intended." (Cleveland, Sept. 14, 1963) On a tax cut, then being proposed: "I am old-fashioned. I believe you should pay in more than you spend." On walking: "I don't do this for show. I do it because I think it will help me live longer." Potsdam Conference in 1945: Josef Stalin, President Truman, Winston Churchill.
