MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1W« BLTTHEVTLLB fARK.)' COURIER PAGE ELEVEN Demos Dust Off 52 Slogan For Next Year's Elections Bf DOUGLAS B. CORNELL PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Democrats under the lead of Adlai E. Stevenson are dustin off for use in 1954 a 195 campaign theme that the country "never had it so good" as when they were in power. I ^ Climbing living costs, economic Issues and fear of depression got t heavy accenting over the week• end at & rally of Democrats from 11 Atlantic Coast states and the District of Columbia. So did the question of subversion and Soviet espionage in government, with Stevenson putting in an appeal to the country to quit raking over ashes of the past and get on with combatting the international Communist conspirac y and the problems of today and tomorrow. Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) replied to Stevenson's appeal last night by asserting Stevenson had long shown "an especial fondness toward the Communist philosophy." McCarthy said Stevenson has been repeating "like a broken record" the idea Americans should fight Communists without getting rough with them. The 1952 Democratic presidential nominee laid heavy emphasis on fear of depression while voicing confidence that "we Amercans have a reasonable chance of mastering our economic destiny." He credited his own party with having erected sound defenses against economic disaster and said the Republicans can use them now even though they once called them "socialistic." Hopes High j ' The former Illinois governor was ' the big oratorical gun at the Democratic rally and a fund-raising dinner Saturday night aimed at sweetening the financial kitty and building up spirit for the 1954 campaign. Democrats from Maine to Maryland were saying here that party prospects definitely are on the upgrade. Stevenson himself said that, measured by recent election re* suits, "our party's fortunes have suddenly improved." To upwards of 1,300 Democratic partisans assembled at the *1CO- a-plate dinner, Stevenson said that the Pour Freedoms the late President Roosevelt laid down In 1941 as guiding principles tor America and the world have been supplanted by the "Four Fears." Freedom of speech and of worship, freedom from want and fear, he said, have been replaced by "fear of depression, fear of communism, fear of ourselves, fear of freedom itself." "Those gallant hopes of yesterday," he said, "have given was to the sorry confusion of today." He questioned whether President Eisenhower can speak as the voice of authority for his own administration. While Eisenhower speaks of unity, he said, presidential colleagues sow disunity. While te calls for calm," he said, "his friends light the.fires of hysteria. While he invokes the American tradition that the accused has the right to be confronted by his accuser, members of his administration and his party, try, condemn and convict in a single action of the hand. "I only wish Presment Eisen- lower could speak for the Eisen- riower .administration." Jumping on Atty. Gen. Brownell, Stevenson said he has "even imputed disloyalty or Communist sympathy" to former President Truman. | Truman's vice president, Alben "We have an attorney general," he said, "whose chief qualifications seem to lie not in his skill as a lawyer but in his ambidextrous, nocturnal invasions of the sepulchers of the dead.' Mention of Brownell brought hisses from the crowd. Barkley drew a bead on the attorney general for his Nov. 8 charge that Truman in 1946 promoted Harry Dexter White, now dead, from a high Treasury department office to the Internationa! Monetary Fund in disregard of FBI reports Brownell said identified White as a Soviet espionage agent. Truman replied that he kept White in the government so the FBI could keep tab on him and other suspects. Barkley, raw-hided Brownell*- OH, BABY—JURY DUTY—Little Merrit Spiegel, 28 months old, of New York, brushes up on fine points of the law after receiving a summons to jury duty.

The .spokesman said E. D. Starkweather, company director of industrial relations, came out of a marathon negotiation conference about 3:30 a.m. to announce the settlement. Starkweather said the economic terms were the same as the company offered before the walkout of 33,000 began Oct. 23 at plants in Los Angeles, Fresno, Calif., and Columbus, Ohio. The company stood firmly on a wage increase offer of 4 per cent, or 8 to 20 cents an hour. The CIO United Auto Workers originally asked 26 cents, then scaled down the demand to 20 cents for skilled workers. 10 cents for others. Pre- strike wages ranged from $1.42 to $2.32 an hour. The spokesman said the union ne- golir.tors would arrange for membership meetings as soon as possible to ratify the settlement. The names were Slip Madigan Bo McMillin.
