The depnsl- lion was never actually used In the trial. However, that testimony supporting Hiss is relied on by the Republicans to knock Stev«n.«in out In November. In fact, this was the chief reason for putting Sen. Richard Nixon of California on the ticket with Elsenhower, for it was Nixon who uncovered the pumpkin papers which finally put Hiss in jail. none of it. Instead, he embraced such anil-Fascists as Cnunt Carlos Sforza, with the result thru American foreign policy was highly acceptable to the' people. Sievenson was about to relurn to Chicago as V-J Day approached when he drew still another as- signment--lhat of helping promote public unrli?rM;indinj of the soon - tn - he - established Unitc-d Nations. Stevenson look over the job, omvcd to a Ran Francisco hotel room, worked arounri Ihe clock forcing the American delegation to tell the American people exactly what wai going on. Adlai Stevenson never aspired tn he governor of Illinois. He wanted to be a United States senator and in 1947 he finally marie the biq decision. Corporate law had no attraction for a young man who had seen two war::, a vaft financial panic and the threat of a third World war. He dropped out of his plush law firm for good, systematically «et about wooing Chicago Boss Jacob M. Arvey for; a place on the Democratic ticket. I Colonel Arvey is a shrewd poll- | tician who sensed that post-war I America was gelling fed up with political hacks in hish public office, therefore he adopted Robes- pierre's famous remark that "there goes my moh down the street, I must rush to their helm and lead them." Arvey met Stevenson throuqh Jimmy Byrnes at a luncheon in Senate Secretary Leslie Biffle's office in Washington. "Don't you know you've pot n Hold nugget out there in Illinois in Adlai Stevenson 1 " Byrnes ask- ed Arvey. Arvey confessed he bad new heard of Stevenaon. A few dayi later, some of Stevenion's friends In the Chicago Council w Foreign Relations formed a "Stevenson for Senator Committee." That was the build-up for the man who didn't want to be president. a» tt» mitt-It Mj*. fc GALLON Vanilla ke Cream 63c Holland tm. Lock*r Man* EX-SERVICEMEN TAKE NOTE!
