Stevenson Fires At Opponents In Two Speeches Republicans Split Illinois Governor New York-WP)-The major maneuvers in Gov. Adlai Stevenson's campaign strategy were becoming clearer today as he traveled through the New York area in his · battle for the presidency. In effect, he has now come to grips with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, his Republican opponent Both candidates are in New York. Each has delivered a major speech before the American Legion convention. 'They spoke'on different days, but before the same group of listeners. For each man. this was the true' beginning of his campaign. In the, Legion speech, "and in another delivered last night at a Democratic i-ally near Asbury . Park, N. J., Stevenson 'struck out at Eisenhower in these areas: 1. "I am not in the delicate position of another candidate for nigh office, who faces the ticklish roblem of whether to swallow p h -ils principles and endorse all the candidates running on the tame ticket with him." 2. "The Republicans are split wide open on foreign policy . . . Some of us are reluctant to admit that peace cJnnpt be won by some dlever diplomatic maneuver or by propaganda" 3. "The people of this country aic better off than they or any other people have ever been." 4. . "On domestic policy, onlv now are they (the Republicans) slowly and reluctantly accepting the ideas successfully sponsored by the Democratic party years ago. It looks more and more to me as though they are going to stand on our program." In those four points, Stcvcnso Is expected to find his principa areas of attack on the Rcpubli cans.

Hot Weather Spreads Into Eastern Areas (By Tht Associated Press) Some of the hot weather from the Southwest moved into the Central and Eastern parts of the country today. It continued .hot in Texas, with Fort Worth's top reading of 99 yesterday marking :he 35th straight day with tern- peratures of 99 or higher. The high at Presidio, Texas, was 105 Rain fell in Southern, Midwest and Western area early today.

Although the Defense Depart ment did name a production czar Johnson said, "he did not receiv the necessary authority and ever! tually was reduced to the status of a Job holder part-time." Aide of Johnson said this was Clay Bed ford, industrial leader who wi named special assistant to the secretary of defense. "Ciar" Fropeted The. new report asked appointment of "a full-time production czar with, powers to determine priorities, to freeze designs to the necessary extent, and to oider quantity production initiated, that our minimum air requirements are met as quickly as possible." The report also called for a rreater share ol ledeial funds.for air power and less for ground and EB arms. The report was sharply critical of constant changes in models and Army has grown from 5»3,000 men to more than 1,555,0,000. .,,,. · "Our training system," he said from the "is second to none in the world, prepared- The quality of our leadership, as d by Sen. well .as the numbers of officers available, is substantially better than when we started our buildup for'World War II:" . Weaawos ImpmeeV Weapons have improved, too, Pace said, ''and the potential of the atom will in the future be added to our firepower in the form of guided missiles and. artillery." Pace said the relationships be tween the regular Army and the reserves are better than at any time. More than 300,000 soldiers who have 'returned from Korea under the rotation plan have gjn« into the reserves. Asserting that while rotation 'represents the best in the capacity of a democratic nation to re- idjust itself to a problem it never taced before--the problem of lair- peace and half-war," the secretary said it poses'big problems.

"This means that the whole additions of gadgets and gimmicks to aircraft designs. It said there was a need for design freezes and mass production. "A tendency toward 'gimmick- rie' has loaded some of our .planes with gadgets to a point where their effectiveness has been d creased," the report said. No such delays face Soviet Hus- sia, the report indicated, saying: "When the Rusians stop making tractors and start making tanks they can ill afford to permit such end items to become obsolete." Bad Programming Charged Some comments in the body of the report appeared more withering than the conclusion and rec ommcndations. An example: "As will be demonstrated, the history of our air buildup is a saga of bad programming, neglected warnings, lack of co-ordination, abuse, misuse, and disuse of power, bad advices to the executive, and a general refusal on the part of our governmental agencies to pull together or work together in a dedicated way to strengthen our air arsenal." Even 2 years after the surprise Communist attack in Korea,, the report said, "We have far less than the first-line aircraft we need. It added: irmy v.'ill be turned Into a g!-. antic training base, fighting to lold combat readiness, but press- d in .every sector for training cplacements.
