Truman Sees 'National Suicide'
If Isolationists Carry Elections;
Stassen Reply Hits Asia Policy
Ends Campaign
In St. Louis With
Blast At G. 0. P.
By Joseph A. Fox
Star Staff Correspondent
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 4.—President
Truman tonight warned the
American people against com
mitting “national suicide’’ by elect
ing isolationists Tuesday.
Winding up the congressional
campaign with a bristling speech
Text of Truman Address Warning Against
Electing Isolationists. Page A-4
Truman Guard Plays It Safe, Even Stop!
Beyle at Hotel Door. Page A-4
before his home-state Democrats
in Kiel Auditorium here, the Presi
dent blasted away at Republicans
who have fought the Administra
tion on both foreign policy and
the domestic program. He de
clared: The Congress we elect
next Tuesday will have to make
decisions that will determine the
kind of world we and our children
are going to live in for years to
There are two main issues that
will be decided by the voters,
Mr. Truman asserted—isolationism
and the maintenance of a pros
perous Nation.
“Go to the polls next Tuesday
and vote. Vote for^ yourselves,
vote for your future, and your
children’s future,” he admonished
Backs Intervention in Korea.
Touching off the speech—which
had record radio and television
cdverage—with a broad discussion
of foreign affairs, the President
told of his efforts for peace, and
asserted his belief that interven
tion in Korea represented “the
greatest step toward world peace
that has been taken in my life
But he warned the hard fighting
still lies ahead.
With a nod toward those Re
publicans who have collaborated
in the bi-partisan foreign policy,
the President lashed out at "other
Republicans who have tried to
make foreign policy a partisan po
litical issue.”
Praises Democratic Record.
Swinging into domestic affairs,
the President lauded the Demo
cratic record in aid of farmers,
labor and business and accused
the Republicans of using “scare”
tactics, and talking "tommyrot”
by predicting economic disaster
“at a time when the country is
more prosperous than it has ever
been and 62 million men and
women have jobs.”
The President also assailed as
“the craziest idea yet,” Republican
charges that the Democratic
Party is communistic which he
said added up to a “campaign of
With obvious reference to the
attacks made on Secretary oi
State Acheson and others, the
President said that those Repub
licans pursuing this course “have
maliciously and falsely made
charges of disloyalty against some
of our finest public servants in
Congress and in the Executive
Branch of the Government." anc
that “this effort of theirs to gel
votes is being made at a terrible
cost to the country.”
Silent on Subversive Controls.
The “many honorable men and
women” in the Republican party
he amplified, “oppose this shame
ful course.”
In defense of the Democratic
course in treating with commu
nism, the President pointed out
that Communist leaders have
been prosecuted and are now
on their way to jail. The refer
ence presumably was to the New
York prosecutions. There was
no word on the McCarran Com
munist control law, enacted over
his veto.
The President brought in his
two familiar whipping boys, “the
no-good, do-nothing 80th Con
gress,” which was elected in 1946,
the last off-year, and the “special

Neither Party Likely to Make
Big Gains in Tuesday's Vote
Republicans Probably Will Get Net of
3 More Senate Seats, 20 to 30 in House
By Gould Lincoln.
The Star's Political Analyst
Here’s how some of the most important races, gubernatorial
and senatorial, appear to be going, based on opinion from informed
j sources:
NEW YORK—Dewey, Republican, against Lynch, Democrat,
■ for Governor; a tossup with edge to Dewey. Lehman, Democrat,
will defeat Hanley, Republican, for Senator, and Impellitteri,
independent Democrat, will win the New York mayoralty over
Pecora, Democrat, and Corsi, Republican.
CALIFORNIA—Warren, Republican, will defeat Roosevelt,
Democrat, for Governor, and Nixon, Republican, will defeat
Douglas, Democrat, for Senator.
CONNECTICUT—Bowles, Democrat, probably will lose to
Lodge, Republican, for Governor; McMahon, Democrat, will defeat
Talbot, Republican, for Senator, and Bush, Republican, will defeat
Benton, Democrat, for Senator.
OHIO—Taft, Republican, will defeat Ferguson, Democrat, for
Senator, and Lausche, Democrat, will defeat Ebright, Republican,
for Governor.
MISSOURI—Hennings, Democrat, will defeat Donnell, Re
publican, for Senator.
COLORADO—Millikin, Republican, against Carroll, Democrat,
for Senator. A toss-up, but probably Republican.
UTAH—Thomas, Democrat, against Bennett, Republican, for
I Senator. A toss-up, but with the edge in favor of Bennett.
ILLINOIS—Lucas, Democrat, probably will defeat Dirksen, Re
| publican, for Senator.
PENNSYLVANIA—Duff, Republican, will defeat Myers, Dem
ocrat, for Senator, and Fine, Republican, will defeat Dilworth,
Democrat, for Governor.
The 1950 congressional cam
paign, a mudslinging epic, draws
i to a close with no outward promise
! of sweeping gains by either the
Republican or the Domocratic
The Democrats apparently will
i continue in control of both Houses
of Congress. And President Tru
man will be faced in the last two
years of his term by a Congress
of the same character and intent
as he has in the first two.
One thing could materially
change this outlook for the Presi
dent and the Democratic-labor
alliance—defeats for Senator
Robert A. Taft of Ohio and Sena
tor Eugene Millikin of Colorado,
Republican leaders in the upper
House. Both are engaged in hard
fights for re-election against
drastic drives by organized labor.
Their defeat would not only
give added impetus to the cam
paign for repeal or modification
of the Taft-Hartley Act but also
would strengthen the adminis
tration's hand in foreign policy
looking toward still stronger world
leadership by the United States.
President s prediction.
President Truman and William
M. Boyle, jr.. Democratic national
chairman, claim that the Demo
crats will make net gains in both
the Senate and House. In this
off year election—an election in
which the presidency is not in
volved, the chances for gains by
the opposition party appear better.
To gain control of the Senate
the Republicans must hold all the
seats they now have and take
away seven seats held by Demo
crats. In the House, the Re
publicans must add 46 seats to
those they already have to win a
majority. In neither quest are the
Republicans likely to succeed
The senatorial races, however,
I seem to gfve the Republicans a
better opportunity than do the
House races. Thirty-six Senators
are to be elected. Eight of these
Senate seats are held by Demo
crats from the Solid South against
whom the Republicans have no
chance whatever. These Demo
cratic candidates are Senators
Fullbright of Arkansas, George of
Georgia, Hill of Alabama. Hoey
and Willis of North Carolina,
Johnston of South Carolina, Long
of Louisiana and Smathers of
! Florida.
12 More Democratic Seats,
j In addition, the Democrats ap
pear certain of winning the sena
i torial races in Kentucky. Rhode
! Island and Arizona, and Nevada,
a total of 12 seats.
On the Republican side, the G.
O. P. candidates seem sure to win

Setback In Korea
Laid To "Coddling7
Of Chinese Reds
By Cecil Holland
H&rold E. Stassen charged last
night that American soldiers are
locked in a bloody battle with
Chinese Communists—and suffer
ing their highest casualties of the
Korean war — because of a
“bljnded, blundering and bewil
dered” policy followed by the
Truman administration.
In a speech of unusual bitter
ness, the Republican leader re
Text of Stassen's Attack an U. S. Policy
on Asia. Page A-5
plied to President Truman's cam
paign address in St. Louis and
accused the administration of
‘ coddling” Chinese Communists
and undermining Gen. MacAr
thur in the Far East.
He said 100,000 Chinese Com
munists are opposing American
forces in the mountains of North
ern Korea and that this week
American casualties have been
the highest of anj week since the
Korean fighting began.
Wnile the main burden of his
reply dealt with issues raised by
! the fighting in Korea, Mr. Stassen
lashed out at the "careless, waste
ful financial policies" of the Tru
man administration and accused
it of taking the country down the
"slippery inflation road.”
Cheered By Big Crowd.
Mr. Stassen was cheered to the
echo by the biggest Republican
rally of the Connecticut election
campaign in his speech at New
The former Minnesota governor
and 1948 aspirant for the GOP

widely termed a "key” 8tate, even
before the Party’s National Com
mittee chose him to make the
reply to President Truman’s cam
paign talk tonight:
Police familiar with events in
the New Haven Arena, site of the
rally, insisted 7,000 was a good
estimate of the crowd, although
no sporting event held there ever
claimed that many.

and screen personalities enter
tained the crowd before.the speak
ing started.
Hears Part of Truman Speech,
Cheers greeted Mr. Stassen’s
every attack on Mr. Truman and
the Democratic Party and his every
prediction of a GOP victory next
Mr. Stassen went on the air over
the Mutual Broadcasting system
immediately after Mr. Truman fin
ished his broadcast from St. Louis.
I Mr. Stassen and Guy Gabrielson,
| Republican National chairman,
.went to an arena anteroom to lis
ten to the first 25 minutes of the
President's speech, but the Repub
lican speaker found little occasion
to alter the address he had pre
pared in advance.
Mr. Stassen was not the only
Kepublican leader speaking out in
condemnation of what the Presi
dent had to say in St. Louis.
Senator Wherry of Nebraska,
I the Republican floor leader, de
scribed the Truman speech as “a
; shock to the intelligence of the
American people” and “as phony
as a $3 bill.”
“With the national de&t sky
