WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, 19C4 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FACE FIVE Mitchell Says Ike 'Distorted' Issues In 'State' Message WASHINGTON, Pa. Wl—Stephen A. Mitchell, Democratic national chairman, charges President Eisenhower distorted several big economic issues in his State of the Nation message. Speaking at a Democratic dinner in this western Pennsylvania community last night, Mitchell disputed statements by the President on accomplishments of his Republican administration in the areas of taxes, inflation and farm prices. • • Mitchell said government statistics belie Eisenhower's claims that Inflation has been halted, that skidding farm prices have been stopped and that substantial reductions in expenditures have made tax cuts financially feasible. "Except for November, the cost of living went up in every single month since President Eisenhower took office," Mitchell declared. "The cost of living set new all- time records in June, July, August, September and October.' Mitchell said figures show farm prices dropped in every month but three since advent of the Republican administration, adding: 'Farmers are making two billion dollars a year less than when the Republicans took office. A U. S. Treasury statement for Dec. 31, 1953, showed the government's budget deficit for the last six months amounted to slightly more than nine billion dollars, Mitchell stated. He added: "For the same period a year ago, the budget deficit was also somewhat over nine billion dollars. Just about the same. Yet, last year Mr. Eisenhower said the deficit was leading this country to bankruptcy and ruin. "This year with a deficit of the same size, he says tax reductions are financially feasible. He can't have it both ways."

This is one of the biggest political -questions on this Nationalist- held island today. Chiang Kai-shek's re-election as president is assured and the man he favors for vice president should have little trouble When the National Assembly meets next month to vote on candidates for the job. Li Tsung-jen, once a top contender, is out. He is in disfavor because when Chiang reassumed the presidency March I, 1950, Li maintained that the generalissimo had unlawfully usurped Li's place. Chiang had stepped down from the presidency Jan. 21, 1949, in , response to clamor for peace talks with the Chinese Reas, Top legal experts justified Chiang's reassumption of the executive office on grounds the talks had failed. It is popularly believed here that the man most likely to be chosen vice president will be Premier Chen Cheng. The post of vice president will be an Important one. Chiang is 67. There have been rumors, so far unconfirmed, that Sun Fo, son of Sun Yat Sen, father of the Chinese republic, now living abroad, is interested in the vice presidency and has followers here working behind the scenes in his cause. MOSCOW I*—A writer In Pravda today denounced Western offers of a guarantee of the Soviet Union's security as an attempt "to confuse he public in Western Europe." The writer, E. Alexandrov, declared in an article In the Com- nunist party newspaper that the security guarantee offer was raised only In the hope of hastening the ratification of the European De- ense Community. The Russian commentator described EDC itself as "an instrument of aggression against the U. S. S. R." and asserted: "Projects for a so-called 'new system of security' which are now being offered, completely ignore ,he lessons learned at the price of wo world wars. "They not only fail to provide measures aimed at the formation of a single democratic, peace-lov- ng and independent Germany but, on the contrary, stem from the principle of dividing Germany and drawing off its Western provinces into the so-called EDC. 'One only has to permit the restoration of the vengeful Wehr- macht (German army) and war will again be at Europe's door." The Pravda writer was evidently referring to statements made by British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden in a British Broadcasting Corp. talk Sunday. Eden said the Vest would not jettison its EDC and NATO security arrangements Woman Trapped 3 Days By Body of Husband AUBURN, Calif.
