Truman vs. Dewey

"Through Everything I Have Remained On A High

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The issues in today's presi-
dential election have now been drawn. The fol-
lowing, reprinted from the New York Times,

are the stands taken by the two major candi-
dates on the most important issues,)

(Editor's Note is written by Managing Editor
Harriett Friedman.)
IT TOOK UNTIL the very end of the elec-
tion campaign, but the Republicans fi-
nally came out and admitted that they
have only one vote-drawing card.
The big black lettering of the Repub-
licans ad in the Sunday Daily read: "Stop
Communism! Vote Republican!"
There was no other basis for voting men-
tioned, for not even a cry for unity. And
in the smaller print could be read:
"It is high time to combat Communism
which threatens the very life of our na-
tion, with everything at our command. One
way is to elect on Nov. 2nd candidates
known to be 100 per cent Americans. No
candidate on the Republican ticket from
top to bottom has ever aided in any way
the Communist Party, nor any of the nu-
merous Pink organizations that support or
sympathize with the principles and actions
of the Communist Party."
SO THAT is why the American people
should vote Republican: not, after all,
because Republicans represent Unity, Lead-
ership, or any of the so vaguely positive ideas
that Dewey has been enunciating. No, we are
to vote for them, because they are against
something Evil, and something that looms
constantly more evil, the more votes Re-
publicans need.
I wonder how many people are expected
to actually believe the implication that the
only 100 per cent Americans are also 100
per cent members of the Republican party.
What is a 100 per cent pure American any-
And just what is the immense value in
electing men who stand for nothing but
opposition to Communism. Is it too late
to softly enquire after such problems as
housing, foreign policy, high prices? I'm
afraid the American people are electing into
office, men whose views on such problems
have never really been given.
THERE DOESN'T seem to be anyway to
prevent a Republican victory; even
though it has been obvious all along that the
Republican party really has no stronger
platform or ideas than "stop Communism,"
the American people are bound and deter-
mined to try the Republicans for a change.
But there is a lesson for the future in
that ad in Sunday's Daily. It indicates
that the Republicans find it useful to
distract attention from the real issues of
the day by shouting "everyone but us
is a Communist or pinko."
This is despicable enough during an elec-
tion campaign, but the problem will be much
more serious if Dewey and the Republicans
are in power.
For if the GOP thinks the red scare diver-
sion technique helped them to success, we
may be treated to some grand scale purges
in the future. And when everything isn't
going quite well in the administration, we
may have some interesting examinations of
American pedigrees.

WHAT CAN WE say about this kind of
picture that hasn't been said again, and
again, and again?
Perhaps there would be some novelty in

being brutally vulgar-but oh so gloriously
explicit-and just saying, "It stinks." It
has not one thing, as far as we're con-
cerned, to recommend it. Like so many
other recent "musical comedies," it is
simply too much baloney to be gracefully
We'd like to forget the whole incident as
soon as possible; so please forgive us if we
hastily summarize our impressions: there is
very little that is pleasant in this picture,
and much that is damned disgusting.
And this opinion, mark you, comes from a
lad who is ordinarily pretty tolerant of
Hollywood's shortcomings.

Foreign Affairs

TRUMAN: In 1940 the Republican leaders
were mainly isolationists. * * * Even in 1944
* * * (Mr. Dewey) had so little foresight
about postwar problems that he felt we could
completely demobilize our military strength
the minute that hostilities ended. * * * The
American people should consider the risk of
entrusting their destiny to recent converts
who now come along and say, "Me, too, but
I can do it better."

DEWEY: The leaders of the world Com-
munist movement are ruthless, hardheaded,
ambitious men. The tragedy of our time,
has been that we have had an Administra-
tion that did not understand those leaders
and did not understand the great need for
firmness and consistency in our foreign af-
fairs. Time and again, America has been
made to appear before the world a fumbling
giant. * * *

Bipartisan Foreign Policy

TRUMAN: In the midst of the second
World War, President Roosevelt and his
great Secretary of State, Cordell Hull, pro-
posed, and certain of the wiser Congressional
leaders of the opposition agreed, that, as far
as they could bring it about, politics should
stop at the water's edge.

DEWEY: We have abandoned partisan-
ship to speak through a bipartisan foreign
policy. That was the great objective when I
first proposed to Secretary Hull during the
election campaign four years ago that we
have cooperation between our two parties
to win the peace. That was the beginning
of our bipartisan foreign policy.

Democrats vs. Republicans

TRUMAN: The people know the Demo-
cratic party is the people's party and the
Republican party is the party of special
interests and it always has and always
will be.

DEWEY: We are now witnessing the
strange spectacle of an Administration that
failed when it had a Democratic Congress
and failed when it had a Republican Con-
gress * * * and asks for another chance
to fail again.

Record of Congress

TRUMAN: I call it the "notorious, do-
nothing Republican Eightieth Congress."
Perhaps I ought to leave out the "do-noth-
ing" part of it, because it did some things
-most of them bad.

DEWEY: The Eightieth Congress delivered
as no other Congress ever did for the future
of the country. * * * I am for it 1,000 per
cent. They did a swell job and I believe
wholeheartedly in it from top to bottom.

Communists in Government

TRUMAN: Only in the case of about one
in 6,000 Government employes has -"loyalty
been found doubtful. * * * Certain Republi-
cans resent the democratic safeguards of
the loyalty program. * * * The House Un-
American Activities Committee * * * through
its press-agent stunts for political ends * * *
has injured the reputation of innocent men
by spreading wild and false accusations.

DEWEY: The head of our own Govern-
ment called the exposure of Communists
in our Government a red herring. We must
neither ignore the Communists nor outlaw
them. If we ignore them, we gjye them the
cloak of immunity they want. If we outlaw
them, we give them the martyrdom they
want even more.

High Prices

TRUMAN: Since they killed price control
in 1946, the Republican Old Guard have
given ample proof that they were quite
satisfied with profits of big business getting
bigger and bigger. Time and again in 1947
and 1948, I asked the Republican do-nothing
Eightieth Congress to concern itself with *
* * * high prices. * * * Every time the Re-
publican Congress refused to take effective

DEWEY: The most important single meas-
ure to meet the danger of inflation is to cut
down every avoidable dollar of spending by
Government. * * * We can solve our prob-
lems without using totalitarian devices, with-
out resorting to the methods of the police
state. * * * Price control is an attempt to
sit on the thermometer. Tt would stifle pro-
d iction.

Labor Legislation

TRUMAN: The Taft-Hartley Law converts
the Wagner Act from a charter protecting
the basic rights of workers into an instru-
ment for union-busting by anti-labor em-
ployers. (The Taft-Hartley Act) is only a
foretaste of what (labor) will get if the
Republican reaction is allowed to continue
to grow.

DEWEY: Over the plaintive complaints of
a helpless Administration the welfare of
both labor and the whole of our people has
been advanced (by provisions of the Taft-
Hartley Act). As a result the overwhelming
majority of our people approve these provi-
sions of that law today.

THE Y.W.C.A., according to a
booklet issued by the Consti-
tutional Educational League, has
been infiltrated by Communists. It
is a sensational charge, and the
title of the booklet-"Behind the
Lace Curtains of the Y.W.C.A."-
catches the public eye.
Mrs. Arthur F. Anderson, na-
tional "Y" president, calls it a
"sorry compilation of inaccuracies,
insidious half-truths and flagrant
suppression of the ultimate truth."
The very effort at sensational-
ism in the 68-page booklet causes
one to suspect that the Y.W.C.A.
is the victim of the kind of red-
baiting that has become a conven-
ient device of persons who dis-
agree with an organization's meth-
ods and objectives. The Y.W.C.A.
for years has been aggressively in-
terested in a variety of public is-
sues. Its readers have been critical
of sweatshop practices in industry
and have taken vigorous stands
on other questions.
Fortunately, the public knows
more about the Y.W.C.A. than it
does about the Constitutional Ed-
ucation League, and what it knows
about the former is generally good.

Farm Program

. :,

TRUMAN: This Republican Congress has
already stuck a pitchfork in the farmer's
back. * * * When the Republicans claim that
wheat price supports are to blame for the
high price of bread, they are trying to stir
up the city consumer against the farmer
by downright dishonesty. * * * The Repub-
licans (in Congress) were forced to pass
(a price-support bill) that would look good
in the election campaign.

DEWEY: I and wholeheartedly and un-
equivocally for it (the farm-price support
program) and don't you let anybody tell
you anything different. * * * It is the duty
of Government, as it encourages full pro-
duction in agriculture, to make sure that
the farmer-by producing plentifully-is not
the victim of his own great production. That
means that we must maintain our program
of price supports.

Housing Program

TRUMAN: Last year (housing legislation)
was murdered by the Republican leadership
in the House of Representatives. * * * The
real estate people have one of the most pow-
erful, best organized and most brazen lobbies
in Washington. And the Republican party
has proved to be its most faithful servant.'
* * * * Hoover (said) back in 1929 and '30
there's two cars in every garage. The Re-
publican slogan today is two families in
every garage.
TRUMAN: As soon as the Republican
party gained control of the Congress it began
to tear down the whole western develop-
ment program. The Republicans slashed
funds right and left. They cut back
projects to bring water to the land and
electric power to industry.

DEWEY: We must work toward stability
in the field of housing 'construction. The
Federal Government must stand ready to
lend a hand to the states to encourage pro-
grams of community improvement and de-
velopment. When Federal aid is required to
get action, then that aid must be provided
on a realistic, practical basis,
