Barkley to Pinch Hit
For Truman in Tours To Elect Congressmen By th« Associated Press I Vice President Barkley was lined | tip today to pinch-hit for Presi | dent Truman in an active cam f paign to re-elect Democratic members of Congress. Mr. Barkley told a reporter he has agreed to spend all of October in speaking for Democratic Sen ate and House candidates in a dozen or more States where con trol of Congress is likely to be decided in the November election. The Democratic National Com mittee still is working on his schedule, but the Vice President said he is almost certain to appear in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Mis souri, Iowa, Colorado, Utah, Wash . ington and California. Eight Democratic and five Re publican Senators are involved in races in those States, which also elect 200 of the 435 House members. - President's Tour Cancelled. Although Mr. Barkley wouldn’t comment on the point, the under standing is that he will step .into the campaign to bat for President Truman, whose plans to cover most of those States in “whistle stop’’ tours were cancelled after the Korean outbreak. William M. Boyle, jr., Demo csatic National chairman, has said! Mr. Truman may make some radio speeches for Democratic candi-! dates but has indicated there won’t be any presidential tours. The President’s friends ceel that as commander-in-chief Mr. Tru man will be limited in making partisan appeals. Mr. Barkley, one of his party’s best campaign speakers, intends to take the offensive against the Republicans with forays into States wThere Republican Senators Taft of Ohio, Capehart of Indiana. Donnell of Missouri, Hickenlooper of Iowa and Millikin of Colorado are trying to hold onto their jobs. Talks Already Transcribed. As a warm-up for the October campaign he already has tran scribed a series of brief radio talks to be, broadcast in their home States by a dozen Democratic Senators. These are little more than in dorsements of the party candi dates, to be followed up later by the full political treatment when the Vice President appears in per son. Mr. Barkley said that he will j pay particular attention to Presi dent Truman’s actions and policies in connection with the Korean war. Asked if he will defend Secre tary of State Acheson and Secre-1 tary of Defense Johnson, who have been under hot Republican fire, the Vice President replied: “I will defend our Government’s policies*” Republicans and a scattering of Democrats have been taking after Mr. Johnson recently, al though previously they had con centrated most of their fire on Mr. Acheson. ‘- i Bridges' Publicity Man Beaten in Bar Dispute By th« Associated Press .

C. He had served 27 years in Congress. Mr. Bulwinkle had been ill for a year and recently announced plans to retire after expiration of his present term January 1. He was not a candidate in the North Carolina Democratic primary in June. Mr. Bulwinkle was first elected; to Congress in 1921 and served continuously except for the term between 1929 and 1931. During his long congressional career, Mr. Bulwinkle interested himself in many things, but his sponsorship of the “Bulwinkle bill” gained him most prominence. This controversial measure per mitted railroads and other car riers to agree on rates with im-; munity from the anti-trust laws if the agreements were sanctioned by the Interstates Commerce Com mission. The bill was debated for several; years and finally passed in 1948.' President Truman vetoed the measure but the 80th Congress overrode the veto and the bill be came law. Mr. Bulwinkle was interested in legislation to encourage aviation progress. He was a delegate to the Civil Aviation Conference in Chicago in 1944 and in Montreal in 1947. He was an adviser to the International Civil Aviation Congress in Geneva in 1947. During World War I he served as a major of field artillery. Born in Gastonia, Mr. Bul winkle graduated from the law department of the University of j North Carolina and was admitted to the bar in 1904.

Virginia Survivor Benefits Unchanged, Almond Rules By the Associated Press RICHMOND, Va., Sept. 1, Beneficiaries of deceased mem bers of the Virginia retirement system are not entitled to in creased benefits approved for le tired employes by the 1930 Gen eral Assembly. That’s the opinion of Attorney General Almond. In reply to a query by Maj. Frank P. Evans, director of the retirement sys tem, Mr. Almond wrote: “It is indeed an unpleasant task to be required to render an opinion the effect of whicn will be to deny the beneficiaries of deceased members ... an increase In monthly benefits. “However, the complete ab sence of any mention of such beneficiaries in the act leaves no other course which can be fol lowed in good conscience.” The retirement provisions were liberalized effective July 1, with the stipulation that those who; were members of the system and retired before July 1 would :e ceive the increased benefits after; July 1 as though their retirement became effective then. Grade Allen's Comments Not long ago a flyer from Tulsa set a new world's record for loop ing-the-loop by doing 1,874 loops in six hours. Being from Oklahoma, he must be either an oil operator or an Indian, but, if he can get looijed that many times in six hours, who cares what he is? Many of those Indians have been won derful flyers for generations. One that I read about. Zooming War Grade Allen Eagle, was even covered with feathers. HIS son, Liberty Fight ing Bird, was in the First War. and his grandson, P-38, was in World War II.
