Truman (Continued From First Page.) equality of bargaining power with their employers. “We believe that small business and oo-operatives should have fair opportunity to achieve success, and should not be smothered by monopolies. Protection for Resources. “We hold that our great nat ural resources should be protected and developed for the benefit of all our people and not exploited for private greed. “We believe that old people and the disabled should have an as sured income to keep them from being dependent on charity.” “We hold that families should have protection against loss of in come resulting from accident, ill ness or unemployment.” “We hold that our citizens should have decent housing at prices they can afford to pay. “We believe in assuring educa tional opportunities for all our young people in order that we may have an enlightened citi zenry.” . Busy 10 Hours. The President made his “more abundant life’’ pitch in St. Paul's Municipal Auditorium as the cli max of a busy 10-hour visit to the twin cities of Minneapolis and 8t Paul during which he put in a typical “Truman Day,” as the occasion had been designated by those in charge of the celebration. After arriving at the Twin Cities in a nine-car special train, Mr. Truman visited the Min nesota version of “Boy’s Town,” the Yardville project, and the Shriners’ Hospital for Crippled Children, a Masonic charity proj ect dear to the President’s heart. Then he shook the hands of aeveral hundred well-wishers at a reception and dined with party faithful at a $25-per-plate turn out. It was an interesting angle that while Washington newsmen had been advised by White House sources that the President was appearing in St. Paul under bi partisan auspices, that the pro gram was largely under the direc tion of the Democratic Fanner Labor Party. A bi-partisan tingle was given ! to the occasion when Republican | Gov. Luther W. Youngdahl stood in the receiving line with the President in the reception that preceded his speech. The dinner which followed this reception was an affair engineered by the Democratic Farmer Labor or ganization. The Presidentt launched into the attack on his opposition by reviewing the history of Min nesota, which was carved in part from the Louisiana Purchase, and recalling the storm that arose when Thomas Jefferson decided to pay France $15,000,000 for an area of nearly a million square miles. He drew a parallel be tween then and now. Jefferson’s opponents he said, predicted “ruin” for the country and condemned the debt that would be incurred a course “typical of the standpatters and the re actionaries who are always telling us that things can’t be done.” Reactionaries Alike, He Says. These “reactionaries,” President Truman continued, were the well to-do and big business leaders of their day, influential in poli tics in the East, who “thought *20 Deposit BRAND NEW LESTER Betsy Ross LATEST MODEL PIANO ‘ID Monthly Immediate Delivery No Hauling Charge PIANO MART 1015 Seventh St. N.W. ST. OOO more of the threat to their power and of the inconvenience to them* selves in having to pay taxes for the Louisiana Purchase than they did of the benefits of millions of Americans in having new lands to settle.” ‘‘The reactionaries of Jefferson’s time were exactly like the reac tionaries of today,” he continued. “Whenever there is a new kind of argument—from the same kind of people—for the same kind of reasons. “The expenditures which we| make today for the education, health and security of our citi zens are investments in the fu ture of our country just as surely as the Louisiana Purchase was an investment in the future.” Reverting to the opposition he now is encountering with his pro gram, Mr. Truman emphasized that the policies are the same on which he campaigned a year ago, “but the reactionaries don’t be lieve in election returns.” But he expressed himself as “not too much worried.” “Between the reactionaries of the extreme left with their talk about revolution and class war fare, and the reactionaries of the extreme right, with their hysteri cal cries of bankruptcy and de spair lies the way of progress," the President said. Sees Illinois Democrats. Mr. Truman conferred with Illi nois political leaders at an unusual hour when they boarded his pri vate car at 5:05 a.m. in Chicago. In the delegation were Jacob M. Arvey, chairman of the Cook County Democratic Central Com mittee, former Mayor Edward J. Kelly, State Chairman Oeorge Kells, and Senator Douglas, Dem ocrat, of Illinois. The group remained about 40 minutes. As the group talked what Pres idential Press Secretary Charles G. Ross called "Illinois politics,” they sat around drinking coffee. The President, no coffee drinker, had breakfast later. Weekly Baltimore-Cuba Ship Service Begins •y the AisociaUd Prni BALTIMORE, Nov. 4.—The S.S.

Gabrielson Hits Back j At Truman, Citing Rise in National Debt By the Associated Press Guy Gabrielson, Republican na tional chairman, said today the! Truman brand of government is taking more from the American people than it costs them to eat and is piling up debts for their children to pay. Mr. Gabrielson cracked back in a statement at what he called President Truman’s “villification” of the record of the Republican controlled 80th Congress in an address at St. Paul last night. The President's address—calling on lawmakers to enact his Fair Deal program as a "stanch shield” against communism — and Mr. Gabrielson's reply were prelim inary firing in a 1950 congres sional election campaign that is beginning to look like one of the hottest in history. Mr. Gabrielson said Mr. Truman had talked a lot at St. Paul about Thomas Jefferson. He suggested » that the President study the Jef ferson assertion that— “A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to reg ulate their own pursuits of indus try and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned—this is the sum of good government.” Mr. Gabrielson said: “That is a definition which might, with great profit to the Na tion. be pondered by the head of an administration which is taxing the American people every year to a sum greater than the Nation’s total food bill, and which—still unsatisfied—is robbing our chil dren and grandchildren and great grandchildren of income as yet unearned by increasing the na tional debt at the rate of literally millions of dollars every 24 hours ” Earlier, Mr. Gabrielson re ported that the Republican Party’s financial condition is far more encouraging now than it was a month ago. Mr. Gabrielson made the state ment in commenting on the resig nation of James 8. Kemper of Chicago as treasurer of the Re publican National Committee. Mr. Kemper announced yester day that he had submitted hir resignation because Republican re serve funds had dropped below $90,000. He also was highly critical of the bipartisan foreign policy followed by several party leaders. Expressing regret over Mr. Kemper’s resignation, Mr. Ga brielson said the Chicagoan had rendered invaluable service to the party. He added that he was glad Mr. Kemper would continue to work for the election of a Re-! publican Congress and President In announcing that he was quit-? ting the party post, Mr. Kemper said he would devote most of his time to work for Republican suc cesses .in the congressional elec tions next year and the presiden tial election in 1952. Mr. Gabrielson said steps were taken to organize fund-raising activities after the appointment on September 4 of Sinclair Weeks of Massachusetts as chairman of the party’s Finance Committee. “I have every confidence that Mr. Weeks and his committee will be able during the next few months to raise funds sufficient to provide the continued opera tion of our party headquarters and also to accumulate a sub stantial reserve for use during the congressional campaign of 1950,” Mr. Gabrielson added. Commons Votes to Boost Tax on Stock Dividends By th* Associated Press LONDON, Nov. 4 —The Labor controlled House of Commons voted last night over Conserva tive opposition to boost the tax on industrial stock dividends. A government spokesman said the tax boost—to 30 per cent from the present levy of 25 per cent— was proposed to make stockhold ers “share the sacrifices’’ with the working class as a result of currency devaluation. Commons gave the tax bill a second reading, which is approval in principle, without a record vote. Passage on third reading is a formality.
