"political gangsters," worse than ·Communists'- and ''smear tactics." Truman started it last night with * a a speech,'aimed at Republicans, to the 70th anniveri:ry meeting " of the National Civil Service ·League in Washington. He defended government workers reputations-and the loyalty review pro* gram. The president said "political gangsters are besmirching the character of federal employes. Such accusers, he said; are "worse than Communists" and threaten to undermine the country. He mentioned no names, but he hap similarly criticized members of Congress, like Republican Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin who contend Communists and Red sympathizers have worked . thei: * way into government jobs. Republican reaction was quick Mill blunt: Sen. Richard Nixon of California--"Smear tactics for political purposes,' Sen. Karl Mundt of South Dakota--"Reckless charges which are controverted by the facts." Senator McCarthy--"I don't like to talk about the dead. 1 ' Farley Critical A Democrat, meanwhile, issued a statement in New York in which he criticized his party's leadership.
