3 Leaders Given ADA


Stevenson, Kefauver And Harriman Rated ‘Forceful’ Liberals; Rauh Is Reelected

By Wes Barthelmes

Stall Reporter

Americans for Democratic Action bestowed its political blessing yesterday upon three widely considered can- didates for the Democratic presidential nomination Gov. Averell Harriman of New York, Sen. Estes Ke- fauver and Adlai E. Steven- B07Nn.

Each, said the ADA. is “emi nently qualified” for the nom- ination because they are “men of forceful liberal conviction.”

Before making the indorse- ments, delegates to the closing ADA convention session at the Shoreham Hotel listened to tape-recorded interviews with the three men. In general, Har- riman, Kefauver and Steven- son, the 1952 standard bearer. criticized the Eisenhower Ad- ministration’s foreign policy and purported “big business” complex

There was he discernible dif ference in the \wolume of ap- plause by the scores of dele- gates after each man had fin- ished his interview with com- mentator Elmer Davis. A ma- jority of the delegates was Ste- venson-minded, ADA officers reported. However, attorney Joseph L. Rauh Jr., who later in the day was elected without opposition for a second term as national chairman, worked the local political vineyard for Harriman in 1952

The ADA resolution of ap proval warned “against any ef fort to reach a compromise within the Party by naming a —— candidate whose iberal convictions and per formance are less noteworthy” than those of Harriman. Ke. fauver and Stevenson

Rauh in the past has threat- ened to “sit out” the campaign if a conservative such as Sen Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas were nominated

The delegates by voice yote approved a resolution that said an Eisenhower-Nixon ticket is unpalatable to ADA and “must be opposed by all its resources.” ADA claims to represent aboyt 45,000 members

The resolution questioned what it called the President's “inordinate delegation of re- sponsibility” and his health Nixon, called “unqualified,” was singled out for what without elaboration the resolution called “his conduct in political campaigns.” Former President Truman has accused Nixon of playing fast and loose with charges of communism

Following the tape record. ings, delegates heard sales talks from former District Commis- sioner F. Joseph (Jiggs) Dono. hue, Kefauver's campaign man. ager, and former Air Force

PRINCETON, N. J, May 13— The new farm bill which pro- vides for President Eisenhow- er $1 2-billion bank likely to meet with a lukewarm reception from the average Midwestern farmer

First of all, the farmer doesn't understand the soil bank plan. It has never been explained him adequately and he tends to think of it as another instance of the Govern ment “trying to tell me what to do.” For many farmers, the bank just one more political football.”

In the second place, it would appear the Government has taken an unrealistic point of view about the amount of money the Midwestern farmer thinks is fair if he is to take his land out of production. The average corn grower in the Midwest, for example, wants nearly $60 an acre to take good land out of production. This is considerably more than the Government plans to pay him.

In addition, the farmer is inherently opposed to taking land eut of production. He re- sents the present acreage allot- ments and doesn't relish the thought of any more

These are the general conclu- sions that this reporter has reached after a recent tour of the Farm Belt states of the Midwest. These observations are supported by the work of

There is a great deal of un- certainty about whether or not the farmers would go into the soil bank plan. The weight of sentiment at this time, however,, is on the side of not wanting to go mM.

The question we asked on that score was this

It should be emphasized again that this the vote of Mid- western farmers. Previous In- stitute surveys have revealed that farmers throughout the Nation approve of the soil bank Midwestern farmers have op- posed the idea.

The results indicate the typi- cal corn grower in the Midwest would want, on "the average, $57 an acre from the Govern- ment to take his corn out of production. It is estimated that the amount the Government is planning to pay a typical corn grower in the Midwest is only about half as much as this figure.

“I'd want $75 an acre.” said a 37-year-old farmer near Crop- sey, lll. “In any event, it would be more than they would want to pay.” He rents a 320-acre farm with corn as his chief See GALLUP, Page 13, Col. 1

High Secret Police Officer Tells of Changes in Russia

MOSCOW, May 13 # A high Soviet secret police of. ficial said today all internment camps in the Soviet Union will be abolished within the next year to 18 months

The official told French So- cialists visiting a pgison camp at Tula, 80 miles south of Mos- cow, that deportation of Sov. iet citizens to distant sections is now generally forbidden. It can still be applied, however, to persons convicted of various serious political crimes.

Even in these cases, he said, deportation could be ordered only after normal court pro. cedure. In most cases, con- victed. persons would be im- prisoned. where they lived or as near as possible, he added.

The official told the French- men that in the future there would be only two types of de- tention—in ordinary. prisons and in corrective labor colonies.

He said inmates of the labor colonies could not be sent to work outside. The colonies would contain factories where the convicts would work.

He said that a. special com- mission has been set up to

review the sentences of persons convicted of political counter- revolutionary and crimes against the state.

He said this commission has been ordered to finish its work and rehabilitate innocent per-. sons by next October.

Allies Pressing For Red Trade

By Donald J. Gonzales United Press

Japan, Britain and at least half a dozen other allied na- tions are pressing the United States for a decision on in creasing Western trade with Red China, Administration ol- cials said yesterday.

Uniess some action is forth. coming soon, these countries may decide to step up ship ment to and from China on their own, experts bere said. This would amount to destruc- tion of the seven-year-old agreement barring shipment of strategic goods behind the Iron Curtain, they said.

These officials left no doubt that the Administration is split over What to do ahout the prob lem. By agreeing to relax in- ternational controls, it would be certain to arouse a storm of protest in Congress.

The United States itself has no trade with Red China and doesn't plan any. But the volun- tary trade controls system established in Europe and Asia operates on a unanimous agrec- ment basis.

The issue assumed interna. tional prominence when Brit- ish Prime Minister Anthony Eden conferred at the White House with President Ejsen- hower more than three months ago. The President and his ad- visers agreed to review Far Eastern trade “now and period ically.” Eden was interested in clearing rubber and a long list of manufactured goods and materials for export to Red China

Delay in acting on Allied bids for more trade with the Reds results from failure with- in the Administration to find some compromise of conflicting views between various Govern- ment agencies. Defense officials have been particularly reluc- tant to approve any major in-

creases in trade with Red China. .

Action by the top-level Na tional. Security Council, pre-| sided over by the President, has been complicated by strong con-| gressional pressures against any relaxation, A Senate committee recently undertook an investi- gation of the Administration's) decision two years ago to agree to more trade with Russia and) her Eastern European satel-| lites. )

Approval of more trade with Red China probably would spark an even bigger investi- gation. But indications are that the Allies won't wait and that) some sort of compromise will) have to be worked out.

Officials cited a recent move by Britain to sell tractors to Red China. The British in formed the United States of the sale after it was completed This action is regarded here as a British warning that the trade issue cannot be put off until after the November elections

The limelight shines ‘se rarely these days on Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) that he was discomfited on Friday when it was suddenly turned off in the middie of a statement he was reading.

Testifying on sedition legis lation before the Internal Security Subcommittee, Me- Carthy looked up in surprise when the newsreel camera- men’s bright lights went out. He said with a chuckle: “Would you please leave the lights on? I can't read with- out them.” The cameramen obliged.

Rabb received him at the White House because

he was known as Nixon's close friend and a GOP cam- paign figure and because Chotiner had written him several times on what Rabb considered legitimate mat- ters

Rabb gave this information to Presidential Press Secre- tary James C. Hagerty who. after consulting Mr. Eisen- hower, put out a White House statement. The President did not ask to see Rabb but ac- cepted his word completely.

Rabb, however, also wor- ried about the story's effect on his four children. The three youngest were com- pletely unconcerned. Rabb then went up to Phillips Exe- ter Academy in New Hamp- shire to take his 14-year-old son to Boston for a weekend of fun and talk, including the (hotiner incident. He found the boy bothered not a whit.
