He declared that John Foster Dulles and other "masterminds" of the Eisenhower campaign are playing "cruel, gutter politics with the .lives of countless good men and women behind the Iron Curtain." Truman declared at one point: "It is not an easy thing for me to see their respected candidate-who knows better -- being used as a spokesman for selfish politicians who will 'say anything they think will help them to power. "Surely the Republican candidate must know the Iron Curtain and the Kremlin walls, will not come tumbling down from a few blasts on a campaign trumpet." Truman didn't mention Dulles by name in his foreign policy talk to a railroad station crowd at Parkersburg-, Va., identifying him only as a Republican "who helped in the formulation of our foreign policy." Truman then said: ''He knows what * precarious situation the world is in. He knows how easy it would Trc to start a war. But he is perfectly willing to have the Republican party, and the Republican candidate, say things . that increase the risk of war, simply in order to get votes." Dulles recently came out of a conference with Gen. .Dwight D. Eisenhower; the GOP nominee, about the future liberation of peoples behind the Iron Curtain and the candidate himself voiced his aspirations in an American Legion speech. · " Coordinate* Effort The president gave every outward indication he- is satisfied with Adlsi Stevenson's. campaign as he stepped up his whistle stop stumping for the Democratic nominee. And his disclosure of a joint strategy for speechmaking supported claims of his aides that there has been full consultation and coordination between the president and nominee on what they will say. Truman demonstrated his ability to stir campaign crowds again last night at Milwaukee when he was interrupted 48 times at a labor rally where he described Gen: Dwight D. Eisenhower as the "lonely, captive candidate" of Republican "special interests" trying to "hide behind a new face." lad bid V Admit* Stealing Eight Cars The case of vanishing Springdale automobiles has been solved Sheriff Bruce Crlder said today, with the arrest of a 14-year-old boy who, the sheriff said, admitted stealing eight cars -- including one owned by the mayor of Pineville, Mo., between August 16 and last Sunday.
