Warren Finishes Tour
With Plea in Oregon For Nonpartisan Unity %y the Associated Crass EN ROUTE WITH WARREN TO SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 16.— Gov. Warren, Republican vice pres idential nominee, returned to Cali fornia today, ending a 10.000-mile, 31-day grass roots campaign. The Calif oi nia Governor has taken his campaign into 32 States and more than 110 cities and towns. In his final major talk in Eugene, Oreg.. last night. Gov. Warren con cluded the formal phase of his coast-to-coast swing on the same' note of nonpartisan national unity; with which he opened it Septem-, ber 15. Concerned With Issues. In a summation of what he said he learned in the past month’s travel, the Governor declared there was universal concern over the high ( cost of living, foreign relations (particularly relations with Russia), communism and a consistent foreign policy. “In all of these things," he as serted, "the American people are too earnest to be satisfied with thej blind partisanship which some seek ing national office in this campaign are endeavoring to incite.” ' As a parting rap at the admin istration, he said “it is not pleas ant to hear” the President of the United States make “intemperate and leckless” accusations against the Republican Party. “Empty” Statements. “They are as empty as statements of that type usually are,” he added. “I believe," Gov. Warren con cluded. “the American people are| well able to see through all this to1 the main issue in this campaign, which I believe is very simple— ’ which party is in the better posi-! tion to unite the American people, for the great job ahead? "Which party offers the best hope of real leadership for our country at this time? Which party has the greatest ability for coming to grips with the problems confronting us? “The Republican Party is the only party that can meet these specifi-: cations today” Dewey ^Continued From First Page.'* the Nation must go forward at home to such increased abundance and prosperity that the old fears of depression will be conquered. Promises Price Supports. All day yesterday in the smaller towns of Minnesota, Gov. Dewey sought to dispel Democratic argu ments that the Republicans would not continue farm price supports. He declared it was the Republican Eightieth Congress which passed the Hope-Aiken long-range farm price-support plan. At one stop yesterday, Gov. Dewey' leveled a new charge at the admin istration on foreign policy, saying i it has made “trades behind its hand; with the forces of aggression.’’ In a rear-platform talk at Owa tonna, Minn., yesterday, Gov. Dewey observed that a large percentage of his audience were women, and they seemed pleased when he said he! was glad to see them turning out? to hear the political issues of the! day discussed, because he had! found they have a better grasp of! some of these problems than their! husljgnds. Ta Visit Mother’s Home, Gov. Dewey will wind up a week of strenuous campaigning with a • isit to his mother's home in Owosso, 1 lich., tonight. He and Mrs. Dewey- j ill spend Sunday with his mother! ’’-fore returning to New- York Mon-? clay for a morning speech in Buffalo, j But, on the way East his train will make a wide detour to enable him to speak at Rensselaer, Ind., the home town ot House Majority Leader Halleck. Some observers saw In this visit a move to cement friendly relations with the man who will have to lead the floor fight in the House for Gov. Dewey’s legislative program, if he wins. Mr. Halleck was one of the early Dewey supporters in the pre-con vention battle for the Republican nomination, and had been men- j tioned as one of the leading con- \ tenders for the vice presidential nomination. Most political experts! agree, however, that Gov. Warren's! popularity all along the West Coast has brought greater strength to the i Republican ticket. The chief purpose of this week's trip was to help Republican candi-l dates for the Senate in Kentucky 1 Oklahoma and Minnesota. In Kentucky the Dewey forces1 found bright prospects for’ the re-! election of Republican SenatoV Cooper, even if the State's electoral votes go to the Truman-Barkley ticket. Dewey Indorses Ball. In Oklahoma, the outlook was not' so good for Representative Rizley, Republican candidate for the Sen-: ate against former Gov. Robert S.! Ksrr, Democrat. The climax of the trip came yes terday w’hen Gov. Dewey decided to let bygones be bygones as he rode through Minnesota urging the vot ers to re-elect Senator Ball, despite: the fact that the Senator deserted the Dewey-Bricker ticket in order to support a fourth term for President Roosevelt. Shortly after Gov. Dewey's in dorsement of Senator Ball, an over ripe tomato was thrown from the J _LOST._ BOSTON TERRIER, child’s pet. black and white male, In Hyattsville. Wednesday af ternoon.

Senator Ball told reporters on the Dewey train yesterday that in 1944 he felt Mr. Roosevelt had taken a stronger position on foreign policy. Today, he said, he is convinced Gov. Dowev has demonstrated consistency in his foreign policy views and “would do an infinitely better job" of carrying out those policies than is being done by the present admin istration. Under Gov, Dewey, Senator Ball said, “There would be no such faux pas" as President Truman's recent plan, which he later abandoned, to send Chief Justice Vinson to Mos cow to confer with Prime Minister Stalin. Senator Ball estimated that both he ar.d Got-. Dewey would carry Minnesota by 100,000 votes, but ail other information reaching ob servers on the train did not convey such a rosy picture. In the Senate race Senator Ball has a tough opponent in Hubert : Humphrey, the young and vigorous | Democratic Mayor of Minneapolis. Disarmaments (Continued From First Page.') delegate raised certain questions, he would reply with questions. “But we won't enter into the question of the witch-hunt cam-1 paign in the United States or the great rearmament of the United States or ask what is the intention of the United States," he said. “What are the peaceful purposes of the Operations Snowdrop and Yukon? Why train paratroops in the Arctic? Where would they 'oe dropped in a defensive manner in the case of an invasion?’’ he con tinued. Cite* Greenland Bases. Mr. Osborn's slightly amused ex pression was unchanged as Mr. Katz-Suchy declared, ‘X have some doubts if he (Mr, Osborn) can an swer the question of who is re actionary and who is expansionist." “Wnat about the United States bases in Greenland?” asked Mr. Katz-Suchy. “What of the hun dreds of Pacific islands, the bases in North Africa, the economic pene tration in Europe?” The Pole said the United States had raised the question of a fifth column. The United States, he said, had a fifth column. “Its radio foments unrest In all of Europe,” he said, and asked: “Who interferes in the affairs of European states?” Mr. Katz-Suchy called on the United States to “stop Project X,” “Stop interfering in Europe,” he said. “Can you explain the use of $5,000,000 in Italy? Explain the in telligence service in Germany oper ating on the border of Czecho slotakia.” U. S. Propaganda Charged. Mr. Katz-Suchy said disarmament as defined by the United States meant American control. At the: present rate, he said, there would be no disarmament for 30 to 50 years, i He said it was argued the veto would be misused on the control provisions of the Russian disarment proposal. “If the veto is misused,” he said angrily, “let’s dissolve the Security Council." j The argument, he continued, is “propaganda used by the United States.” He asserted Gen. Marshall had declared the United States would never give up the veto. “Why?” asked Mr. Katz-Suchy. “Because majorities are fluid. A country- that's in the majority today may some day be in the minority. Maybe the United States some day may need the veto.” France • Continued From First Page.) not, however, say what measures! the government had decided on. Ministers Meet Tomorrow. The Finance Ministers of Britain,! France. Holland, Belgium and Lux embourg have a formal meeting! scheduled tomorrow. The meeting is within the framework of the Western European federation. But Sir Stafford Cripps, British Chancellor of the Exchequer, doubt less will discuss with French leaders at least informally what is reliably reported to be France's desire for a realignment of the franc to other! currencies. The dollar now has a free market value of about 308 francs. French! importers, however, operate on a fixed rate of 214 francs to the dol- \ lar while exporters get about 263 francs. Voting Starts Tomorrow. A series of elections for the upper house-of Parliament gets underway tomorrow. In the long, complicated voting 103,589 men will eventually elect 320 others to seats in the Council of the Republic. The final vote will take place November 7. The present series of elections—in which Gen. Charles de Gaulle’s “French People's Rally” <R. p. F.) is going to put up a full-fledged battle —gives him a chance at controlling the legislative body which is ad visory to the National Assembly. If the Socialists lose heavily they prob ably will pull out of the government. This would almost certainly mean the downfall of Premier Henri Queuille's cabinet.

He said he had "clear evidence of a Communist plot ’ to bring about a strike next month. He said the move would be disguised under a general campaign against disman tling of German Industrial plans for reparations.

He is charged, specifically, with forging and uttering a $802 Govern ment check at the Army finance office in Utica. N. Y„ last March. At that time he turned in a voucher and was given a check which he cashed at a bank, officials said. The Secret Service had been seek ing Arnett for several months. Some time ago, all military finance offi cers were notified to be on the lookout for him. When he walked into the finance office at Bolling Air Force base about 5 p.m. yester day he was in full uniform as a first lieutenant. His appearance led Capt. W. B. Vaughn, assistant finance officer, to notify the Air Force special investigation service. ; Maj. Joseph De Raad of that service made the arrest. Only last Tuesday, according to officials, Arnett obtained $400 from a voucher he handed in at the Wal ter Reed Hospital finance office. The next day, authorities said he related, he sent $300 to.a San An tonio, Tex., bank to cover some checks he had written. He used the name Lt. Thomas L. Butler when he went to Bolling Air Force Base, they said. He was stay ing at the Raleigh Hotel, where he was registered as Capt. Alvin R. Meals, it was added. Married and the father of two children, Arnett lives in Valley Cot tage, New York. Investigators said his wife declared she was unaware of his activities and thought he was in the real estate business. Military officials said records •how Arnett joined the Army in 1930 as an enlisted man. He re ceived a commission as a first lieu tenant in 1942 and was released from duty in 1947.

Greece (■Continued From First Page.) fignting ability and the general quality of the Greek soldier are well known to you. It is my hope that with our continuing aid the Greek armed forces will be able soon to master the situation.” War Minister III. Correspondents who visited the Vitsi war front asked for an inter view with War Minister George Stratos on their return to learn the reasons for the delay in the govern ment campaign against the rebels. They were told he was ill. On the basis of observation in the fighting; area, questions were" submitted toj Mr. Grady. Mr. Grady replied "no comment”! to two questions: Have your advisers! suspected cases of mutiny in the Greek Army? It has been said pub licly that Greece is now indulging in a form of international blackmail— i.e., knowing that the United States must have success here, Greece is not making the full military effort of which she is at this time capable until she receives more aid. When asked if he felt that public announcement of a request for in- j creasing the size of the Greek Army ; hurt troop morale, he said "I’think it was unfortunate.” Mr. Grady said the question of whether Greece needs a larger army or more military supplies to clean out the rebels has been presented to the United States Government and is now under study. The Am bassador said he does not think the civil war has grown into a larger international battle of Communist and anti-Communist forces. Other highly placed persons here fear that it has. General Concern Expressed. General concern over the situa tion is reflected in these factors: Guerrillas have stepped up their raids on towns and villages. Some Greek sources fear the Communists may try to establish a government in the Peloponnesus. There are more guerrillas in Greece now than | when military operations started ! The Greek Army has been on the Vitsi sector lines since August 30 with little progress. No general offensive has developed. Correspondents who visited the Vitsi sector and talked with Lt. Gen. George Papageorgiou, in command of operations, were told he had sufficient equipment, sufficient troops, high morale in his forces, and plans for eliminating the rebels. But he refused to say why there had been so little action in the six weeks since the battle lines formed. Hull (Continued From First Page.) re-reading the newspapers of August1 and September, 1944. In his published memoirs, Mr. Hull recalled he was greatly con cerned when on August 16, 1944, Gov. Dewey made a statement criti cal of preparations for the Dumbar ton Oaks conference leading to or ganization of the United Nations. At a press conference the next day, Mr. Hull said he would "welcome a conference with Gov. Dewey to straighten out any points connected with the postwar organization and a nonpartisan approach to it.” The following day, Gov. Dewey designated John Foster Dulles, still his foreign policy adviser, to confer with Mr. Hull. They worked out an agreement for a nonpartisan ap proach to peace problems. Mr. Hull said in his statement last night he was "sorry" that Gev. Dewey’s October 12 statement was in such "sharp contrast” to one he made in Louisville four years ago,| pledging that efforts to achieve peace "shall never be subjects for partisan political advantage.” “I heartily- agreed with that statement then,” Mr. Hull asserted, "and recommend it now to all who speak for either party during the remainder of this campaign.” Slock Market Quiet, With Prices Steady At Week's Close ty th« Atsociattd Prni NEW YORK, Oct. 16,-The stock market loafed along a narrowly Irregular price route today in a typical sleepy Saturday session. The General undertone of the market was steady. Buying support appeared at fractionally lower levels and numerous Issues were lifted a trifle above the previous close. Many traders were away from Wall Street for the week end and those who did show up weren’t anx ious to take an aggressive position. Volume totaled around 300,000 shares. This was well above last Saturday’s 190,000 shares, a five year low, but nothing to start brok ers dancing in the street. Vanadium Corp. was one of the few issues to step out of a frac tional range. The stock rose around 3 points to a new 1948 peak Others higher most of the time included Chrysler, Sears-Roebuck, Caterpillar Tractor, Douglas Air craft, Anaconda Copper, Du Pont, Eastman Kodak, United States Gyp sum and Paramount Pictures.

Force Reserve Corps has not been as rapid, he said, “for many rea sons.” He assured them that the “full force of the Government will be exerted toward creating appro priate and effective Reserve estab lishments as rapidly as possible.” Stresses Reliance on Reserves. Mr. Truman's statement spoke ®n our “long standing and wise tradi tion” to rely heavily on reserves. His action, he said, is expected to help build defense forces con sistent with “our democratic tradi tions and our position in the world today.” In ft letter to Mr. Forrestal, Mr. Truman suggested how the order might be carried out. Making his suggestions “with par ticular reference to the Army and Air Force ” he proposed: 1. The assignment of an active, capable, high-ranking officer to head the Reserve program in each de partment. 2. The assignment of an adequate number of young and vigorous offi cers as instructors arid adminis trative officers in programs of Re serve training. 3. Increased attention on the part of all Genera] Staff divisions to planning and directing reserve ac tivities and reviewing accomplish ments thereunder. 4. The development and Institu tion of training programs which will hold the interests of reservists at all levels and will maintain and im prove the military skills which they have hitherto acquired by active service in the armed forces. To Provide More Training. 5. The provision of more adequate training faeilities and equipment,; including active co-operation among; all components of the reserve forces; in the effective utilization of exist-! ing structures. By proceeding promptly to utilize every practicable resources of the services, it should be possible, with a minimum of de lay, to organize all reserve com ponent units required for the train ing of individuals in the active re serves in such a way as to give the balance necessary to our national defense in its broadest concept. Mr. Truman called particular at tention in his letter to the provision in the order requiring that Mr. For restal submit a progress report within 60 days. He added: “I am particularly anxious that the report show the current status and degree of readiness of each of; the major reserve components. It; should also include a statement of i the specific programs and schedules proposed or intended in effectuation! of the order.

' LOGANSPORT, IND.—TRUMAN INDORSES CONDUCTOR FOR SHERIFF — President Truman put in a rear-platform plug yesterday for the election of Claude G.

Truman (Continued From First Page.) can victory would encourage a depression. Another Midwest Trip Set. In his latest tour, the President covered—in addition to Indiana— Ohio, Illniois, Wisconsin and Minne sota. In the last two States, he rested his case with the voters after a special appeal to all liberal ele ments for support. He will, however, take another whirl at the bloc of 66 votes in Indi ana, Illinois and Ohio, the week before election, when major speeches in Chicago and Cleveland will be bolstered by trainside stumping en route. The President and those around him were well satisfied with his day in Indiana, when a kalf-dczen talks between Hammond and Indianap olis attracted an estimated 100,000 spectators, with Kokomo alone con tributing about 40.000. Pointing to the “wayside” crowds, plus the 200,000 he estimated had greeted Mr. Truman in Indianap olis, former Gov. Henry F. Schrick er, who is making the gubernatorial race again, told the Indianapolis rally that “we feel with great con fidence that Harry and Henry are sure of election in November.’” Railroad Crews Praised. Mr. Schricker said "Democrats and Republicans alike have given our President one of the grandest Hoosier receptions in the history of the Stale.” One of the developments of the day was an evident intent on the; party of the Democrats to capital ize—if possible—on Gov. Dewey’s outburst against the engineer of his special train, whom he called a “lunatic.” Tlie President got into that play; in oblique fashion at Logansport. a big railroad center, where he re marked that “we have had wonder-' ful tram crews all around the coun try and they’ve been just as kind toj us as they could possibly be." He also put in a strong plug for the conductor of his special, Claude Berkshire, who is running for sherifT at Logansport. The Dewey episode next bobbed up at the Indianapolis meeting, where Andrew Jacobs, Democratic candi date for Congress from the Eleventh District, recalled Gov. Dewey s “ir ritable” outburst, and said “if he j talks that way in the White House he will have the country at war in 30 days.” Unions Pledge Support. The Indianapolis meeting also saw the President get a pledge of support from AFL, CIO and the railroad brotherhoods along with independ ent unions, which presented him with a scroll. The Presidential Special reached Indianapolis shortly after 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon, and Mr. Tru man was driven to the Indiana Roof Garden to meet several hundred party workers. There he expressed confidence that he would carry the State—which has been going Re publican since 1940—saying that “Indiana knows which side its bread is buttered on.” Thousands met the President. It was the same story when he left the Indianapolis Athletic Club after dinner and rode through the down town streets at the head of a parade which ended at the World War Me morial, where it was estimated that 30.000 stood on the broad plaza to hear him. As the President was drivipg away after the speech, a glass tumbler that either was thrown or fell from a nearby building, crashed into the street, narrowly missing a member of his motorcycle advance guard as it splintered. The President’s car was several feet from the spot the glass hit. Before returning to his train, Mr. Truman attended a Masonic cere mony at the community of Beach Grove for Donald Earl Bauermeister, a sailor on the presidential yacht Williamsburg. Mr. Truman spotted Mr. Bauermeister in the crowd when his train stopped at Noblesville, and invited him to ride to Indianapolis. Hearing that the sailor was going to get the Blue Lodge Degree in Masonry, Mr. Truman said he would like to be present. Chest (Continued From First Page.) enteenth and K streets N.W.

Heavy Kashmir Fighting Is Reported Resumed By the Associated Press NEW DELHI, Oct. 16.—The In dian Defense Ministry said last night there has been renewed heavy fighting in Kashmir. A commu nique said heavy engagements oc curred Wednesday and* Thursday south and southwest of strategic Titwal. Titwal lies about 20 miles east of the Pakistan border town of Muzaf farabad and anti-government forces have been trying hard to dislodge Indian troops from positions there, the Defense Ministry said. The communique said more than 2,000 enemy troops attacked the In jdian positions five times in two days, but failed to gain their ob jective. There was no report of casualties. A United Nations commission has been seeking to stop the warfare in Kashmir, which started when the princely state — Hindu-ruled but, with a Moslem majority—acceded to India a year ago.
