Republican Established 1830 Journal Established 1858 OGDENSBURG, N. Y., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1948 Price Five Cents Truman Declares Washington — (AP) — President Truman said last night the Republicans plan to put the axe to the New Deal \program for going forward.\ \The time has come,\ he said in a radio talk, \for the working people and all the progressive forces of this nation to realize the grave danger that confronts them.\ . ••Only from the Democratic Party.\ Truman said, can the people expect social legislation such as that contained in the New Deal's \great progressive body of laws.\ The President spoke from the White House on a nationwide broadcast sponsored by the. In- ternational Ladies Garment Workers Union. He was intro- duced by actress Tallulah Bank- head from New York. Miss Bankhead, daughter of the late House Speaker William B.' Bankhead, said she preferred Truman, \the human being,\ to \Thomas E^ Dewey, the mechan- ical man.\ Terming the Republican presi- dential candidate \so excruciat- ingly tidy.\ she said: \Synthetic Smile\ \Just once I'd like to see him with hi* hair rumpled, a gravy stain on his vest, that synthetic smile wiped off his face.\ \It seems a great shame to risk exposing Mr. Dewey to the smells and noises and ills of humanity,\ Miss Bankhead add- ed, \far better to leave him in his cellophane wrapper, unsoiled by contact with the likes of you and me.\ Truman did not mention Dew- ey by name but referred to him as the \chief prosecutor\ of the New Deal on which he said the Republicans planned to do a \real hatchet job\ if they win next month's elections. The Republicans started their attack, the President said, by converting the Wagner Labor Act into an \instrument for un- ion busting by anti-labor employ- ers.\ They did this, he added, by passing the Taft-Hartley law over his veto. New York—(AP)—Henry A. Wallace says \fearless planning for abundance—not scarcity\ could make it possible for the average American worker and farmer to earn $100 a week. \It can be so,\ the Pregressive Party presidential candidate con- tends, \if we plan for it in the same resolute way that the men in Washington and Albany are planing for war.\ Speaking last night. Wallace said: \We can get $100 a week, but we cannot achieve this goal un- less the productivity of the entire world is stepped up. This will take planning through the Gov- ernment, the establishment of a world-wide ever-normal granary through the U.N. This will mean making available American technology to every country in the world—including Russia. Wallace, a farming expert and former secretary of agriculture, declared: ' / \I know something about this question of planning because I personally planned to produce abundance in the corn fields, and saw this dream come true, xxx \I know that it is possible in ten years to double the output per hour of labor on all the farms of the world. All that is required is a plan t<a do it and a will to do it.\ Ballot Blocked Chicago — (AP) — Blocked by a Supreme Court decision, Henry A. Wallace and his Progressive Party today appealed directly to Republican Gov. D wight H. Green to get the third party's state and national tickets on the Nov. 2 Illinois ballot. But there appeared no chance the Progressives will be on the state ballot. The Political effect seems to favor the Democrats. West Virginia Rivals Sen. Chapman Revercomb (Rep.) at left and Matthew M. Neely, Ms Democratic opponent, arc key figures in West Virginia Senate race which may decide which party will control that chamber after November 2. Vest Virginia Senate Race Gets A ttention As Truman, Dewey Spar Between Talks By The Associated Press West Virginia's hot senatorial battle drew ircsh attention today as the presidential candidates sparred between their final campaign rounds. Gov. Thomas E. Dewey omit- ted that state from his windup tour which opens next Tuesday in Chicago. President Truman has made two campaign visits to West Virginia, putting in a spe- cial vote plea for Matthew M. Neely who seeks to unseat GOP Senator Chapman Revercomb. Holding Senate control by only a six-vote margin now, the Re- publicans may need to win the Yh.z \ r '..jHf.vd. race to retain the upper hand. Dewey and Revercomb have not seen eye to eye on the displaced persons issue, but the GOP high command sent Nation- al Party Chairman Hugh D. Scott, Jr., to Huntington last night with a special plea for the Senator. \From top to bottom,\ Scott said, the Republican Party and the national ticket want Rever- comb re-elected. \And I do mean from top to bottom,\ he added. The party chairman said there wasn't \sufficient time\ on Dew- ey's schedule to permit him to come here in person. \That's why I'm here,\ Scott added. After he spoke, Rever- comb told the party rally: \I am here to say that win or lose I shall continue to represent the people of West Virginia as a man who will not bow to outside dictation.\ He did not amplify the remark. During xhe special session of Congress Revercomb refused Dewey's request to amend the displacd persons bill, to remove sections which critics say are discriminatory. The West Virgin- ian then was chairman of a Sen- ate Judiciary Subcommittee which pigeonholed the proposed amendments. Truman Convinced Of Senate Win Washington — (AP) — Presi- dent Truman's closest advisers say he is convinced the Demo- crats will recapture control of the Senate regardless of the out- come of his own race next month. Talking privately, these men tell newsmen they expect Dem- ocratic senatorial candidates to outrun Txuman in ^ome states ana to win in a couple he may not carry. New York—(AP)—Four bj.g- city speeches and an election eve broadcast will wind up Gov. Thomas E. Dewey's campaign for the presidency. The Republican nominee elect- ed today to close his drive with nationally broadcast talks in Chicago, Cleveland, Boston and New York. Between them, in the final 10 days of the campaign, he ar- ranged to sandwich in some barnstorming talks in Massa- chusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. But missing from the list was any appearance in West Virgin- ia, where Senator Chapman Rev- ercomb, Republican, is strug- gling for re-election in a highly critical Senate race. And the Dewey strategists, who summed up their ideas about the campaign in a four-hour con- ference here yesterday, turned down demands for the candi- date's appearance in Detroit. At the conference, besides Dewey, -were Herbert Brownell, Jr., campaign manager; Russel Sprague, an adviser; Rep. Leon- ard Hall; Roger Straus, president of the American Smelting Com- pany; Elliot Bell, New York bank commissioner; Paul Lock- wood, the Governor's secretary; James Hagerty, his executive as- sistant, and William Murphy, publicity director of the GOP National Committee. The consensus was that Dewey has the presidential race won, and should not extend himself in the last few days of the cam- paign. In line with this, all he had definitely on his agenda today was an eppearance at New York headquarters of the Dewey-War- ren Citizens' Committee. f War Should Come This is a peace story. It is a factual description of the steps our government is taking to keep America strong in case the worst should happen. This report faces up to grim reality. It gives you information which should make that reality a little more bearable. In an illuminating series of four articles, Doug- las Larsen tells how ready is America on the land, on the sea, in the air and at the Pentagon. They Start in The Journal Monday, Oct. 25 Egypt, Israel ee To Honor IN Cease-Fire In Holy Land p ar i s _ (AP)— The United Nations announced today Egypt and Israel had agreed to stop fighting in the Southern Palestine desert at 7 a.m., EST today. A spokesman for the acting mediator, Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, said: ^\We have received acceptances from both sides.\ The desert fighting in the Ne- gev began a week ago today, when Egyptian forces shot up a Jewish convoy. The new cease fire—the fifth ordered by the Security Council since Holy Land warfare broke out last May—came just a few- hours after indications began to appear that the United Nations might delay again debate on the whole Palestine question. A French source said he did not think the Palestine question would be discussed until after the United States elections, Nov. 2. Neutral Powers Urge Immediate In Resolution On Berlin ouncil •Tear Gas Routs French Strikers' Tel Aviv, Israel — (AP) —- Is- rael ordered her troops to cease fighting in the Negev Desert at 7 a.m., EST, the Government an- nounced. (The Egyptian Government announced in Cairo it had in- formed the U.N. mediator, Dr. Ralph Bunche, that it had or- dered Egyptian troops to atop fighting in Palestine in accord- ance with the U.N. order.) The announcement came al- most simultaneously with the wai(l% of air raid sirens in Tel Aviv, the capital's first daylight alert in three months. Anti-air- craft fire could be heard, but no planes were visible. Meet Deadline The cease fire order met the deadline set by the acting United Nations Mediator, Dr. Ralph J. Bunche. Egyptian artillery pounded Is- raeli-held roads in Southern Pal- estine this morning apparently in a last-minute blow before the cease fire was to teke effect, the Jewish Army said. Gunfire snarled traffic and halted a convoy of civilian cars which had been scheduled to take a party of newsmen to Beer- sheba, capture of which was re- ported by the Israeli Army yes- terday. French miners, in the third week of a strike, attempt to retake the Villiers Coal Mine at St. Etienne as they throw stones at security troops who have occupied the mine property to prevent sabotage. A tear gas bomb bursts in their midst. (AP Photo by radio from Paris to New York) tsrdnift mmin Seen Backfirin Washington — (AP)—Russia's reported all-out effort to smoth- er \Voice of America\ radio broadcasts may be boomerang- ing. American listening posts have picked up a total of 18 Soviet sta- tions mostly centered around Moscow and Vladivostok, which State Department officials say are used to \jam\ the voice pro- grams. These officials add, however, that they have reason to believe the jamming never succeeds en- tirely and that the reaction of Russian listeners therefore is one of intensified interest; they want to find out what informa- tion it is their Government seeks to deny them. The United States is not trying to retaliate by jamming Soviets broadcasts to this country, the authorities say, but is making a special effort in its broadcast to Russia to Russian people all the news their Government may not be giving to them. There is evidence that this news is getting through, officials say, citing the Kasenkina Case as an example. When Mrs. Oksana Kasenkina jumped out of the window of the Soviet Consulate in New York several weeks ago, the \Voice\ picked up news reports of the incident and began broadcasting them to the Soviet Union with- in a matter of minutes. Observers in Moscow report- ed later that within three hours, news of what the refugee Rus- sian school teacher had done was widely known over the So- viet capital. F!!B3l6, Warsaw — (AP) — August Cardinal Hlond, primate of Po- land, died today. He was 67. Cardinal Hlond, an outspoken foe of the Communist-led Polish Government, passed away at 10:30 a.m., of pneumonia, which he developed after undergoing an appendicitis operation. His death reduced the member- ship of the Sacred College of Cardinals to 56. Its full quota is 70. He had been a cardinal since 1927. That year he was appointed archbiship of Posen and primate of Poland to succeed the late Cardinal Dalber. He began his career as a priest in Milan, Italy, where he be- came a close friend of the man who was to become Pope Pius XL Ten years ago Polish Catholics felt that, should the tradition of an Italian pope be broken, Card- inal Hlond might have a good chance of being elected pontiff ! by the College of Cardinals. At; that time he enjoyed the confi- = dence of Pius XI and was grant- : ed the privilege of acting as | worldwide spiritual director over all Poles. Born In Silesia Born in upper Silesia in 1881, Cardinal Hlond was the son of a miner. His parents, devout Cath- olics, sent him to the Salesian Fathers' school. Later he attend- ed Don Bosco College in Turin, Italy, and the Gregorian Uni- versity in Rome. Coal Walkout Casual In France Law Threatened Paris — (AP) — Total easwal-but should send rciore troop® lay World Peace Itifranks Prestige ties of the violence-studded French coal strike approached 200 today as the crippling walk- out of 335,000 miners went into its twentieth day. There were no incidents re- ported today. Soup kitchens opened in Eastern. France, signi- fying the Communist-led strikers were pulling in their belts. Yesterday's fighting, in which scores of police and soldiers were injured, brought a threat of mar- tial law. Some cabinet ministers were said to feel Premier Henri Queuille should not only declare a state of seige, in the coal fields, there and call wp re-serves. Five hundred strikers sur- rounded at pit near Valencien- nes today while their delegates influenced workers still on the job to quit work. Gendarmes stood by and took BO action. The bitterest lighting took place yesterday at Grandcombe in Southern France when 6,000 persons overwhelmed police and soldiers, about 50 of thern of whom were seriously injured. Police finally fled the town, abandoning a large quantity of material, including a truck loaded with helmets and rifles. -Crack Train Wrecked* Suspect In Niesen. Tierney Thefts Held New York — (AP) — A 38- year-old former convict was held without bail today for jan Oct. 28 hearing on charges of burglariz- ing the apartments of Gertrude Niesen, the singer, and screen actress Gene Tierney. Assistant District Attorney Paul F.

Harry Kane, son of John. J. Kane, Jr., Democratic congres- sional candidate, swallowed the contents of the bottle he found in a dresser drawer. He was taken to a hospital for examina- tion. This is an airview of the wreckage of the Santa Fe's eastbound California Limited which was derailed six miles east of Garden City, Kas. At least 65 passengers were injured. Ten cars of the 12- car train were hurled from the rails as the big Diesel engine ripped up several hundred yards of track. (AP Wirephoto) Paris — (AP) —- The six \neutral'* powers on the United Nations Security Coun- cil called on Russia today to lift the Berlin blockade at Dnce. The meeting was delayed near- ly an hour by last minute con- ferences among the Big Four delegations directly concerned in the issue. The United States, Britain and France have accused Russia of endangering peace by blockading Berlin. Russia has asserted no block- ade exists and that the Council has no jurisdiction. The neutral power — Argentina, Belgium, Canada, China, Colombia and Syria — drafted a compromise solution which the Western. Pow- ers accepted. Back ftaviei Mark • The neutrals put before foe council a joint resolution which said the lour military governors of Germany should adopt the Soviet mark as Berlin's sole cur- rency before Nov. SO in «x- change for lifting the Moekade.

The Russians blockaded the land approaches to the city—deep in tJie Soviet Occupation Zone—last J'an* 23, soon after the Western Powers introduced their reformed . cur- rency into Berlin. The West in- stalled the air lift to feed and sup- ply the 2,000,000 or more Ger- mans in Western Berlin, and clamped a counter blockade on the Russian Zone of Germany. Bramuglia, in his speech, told the Big Four to forget the pres- tige involved in the dispute. The question of world peace is much more important than the prestige of any one power, he declared. . erman War Munich, Germany «= <AP)= Ten German war criminals were hanged today at Landsberg Prison, despite recent appeals of German Catholic and Protes- tant Church leaders that further executions be halted.
