' He said that in contrast to the New Deal program, the Republican party proposed to re-establish lib erty at home, and added: "Our goal also is to prevent hardship and poverty in America —to provide opportunity and se curity—and to promote social bet terment.' Such a goal can be solidly achieved only if we give full scope to individual Incentive and Amer ican ingenuity and turn our backs finally and completely on alien philosophies of government." Then Gov. Bricker listed four steps to be considered in a con structive program: "First, we must clean our gov ernmental house of the debris with which it is now cluttered and which has been accumulating during 11 years of the New Deal. To clean house we must get rid of needless bureaucracy. "Second, we must restore respon sible cabinet government in Wash ington.

Unless that trend is ended. State and local governments sooner or later will be reduced to provincial administrative units — mere satellites revolving about an all-powerful national planet. 'Finally, the Republican party proposes to create in this country an atmosphere of opportunity for the individual. The one great problem after the war is Jobs—hon est jobs—productive jobs.

Mr. Murphy told reporters after his White House visit that he hoped Germany would be brought about progressively so as to enable the Allies to deal with local German authorities instead of with any central governmental body which might try to “save something out of the wreck.” In this way, Mr. Murphy said, the United States and her Allies would avoid any dealings with any groups which purport to represent the German people as a whole and which might try to salvage some thing politically out of the defeat. Hershey Is Silent On Dewey Attack Maj. Gen. r,ewis B. Hershey, se lective service director, had no com ment to make yesterday on Gov. Thomas E. Dewey’s denunciation of a statement attributed to the gen eral declaring it would be as cheap to keep men in the Army as to create a Federal agency for their employment when demobilized. Gen. Hershey would not elaborate or discuss its accuracy, it was said at his office. The selective service head made the controversial comment, the As sociated Press reported, in response to a reporter’s question at a press conference in Denver August 21. He was quoted as saying demobilization necessarily would have to be grad ual and added: “We can keep people in the Army about as cheaply as we can create an agency for them when they are out." Gov. Dewey assailed this senti ment in the opening speech of his transcontinental tour at Philadel phia Thursday, remarking that it was attributed to the selective serv-1 Ice director and apparently had ad ministration sanction.
