'Cruel Hloax'
By the Associated Press
Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson last
night in New York accused Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower of trying
to perpetuate "a cruel hoax" by
holding out hope "for swift re-
lease of those enslaved behind the
Iron Curtain."
Stevenson, the Democratic presi-
tential nominee, said the General
-his GOP opponent for the
White House-made a "reckless
proposal" to free Soviet-dominated
peoples in Eastern Europe.
THIS WAS AN allusion to Eis-
enhower's Aug. 25 statement in
New York that the United States
"can never rest-and we must so
inform all the world, including
the Kremlin-until the enslaved
Gov. Stevenson will give a ra-
dio address from Cleveland at

last night to send the whole mat-

Presented by chairman Dave

WASHINGTON-QP-Labor members of the Wage Stabilization
Board charged yesterday that the board "spent more time finding
ways to deny than to approve" the $1.90 wage increase negotiated by
John L. Lewis.
Public and industry members of the WSB trimmed that $1.90
by 40 cents, leading to an immediate nation-wide soft coal strike, the
effects of which are already spreading to other industries. The public
and industry members said the full $1.90 would violate government
controls designed to curb inflation.
THE LABOR MEMBERS of the tri-partite board severely criti-
cized their associates and said the majority decision in effect pre-

als or which violates recognizedf
rules of hospitality."
The revised version would de-
lete this part and substitute as
a pledge that no speech would be
given which "violates any of the
Regents rules concerning speak-
ers." In effect this applies the
same criteria now used by the
Lecture Committee in prejudging
The original pledge contained a
partial statement of the Regents'
criteria, but did not include the
provision that speakers may not'
be "subversive" and that speeches
must be of "educational value."
The revised pledge encompasses
these provisions.
THE CHIEF difference between
the present Lecture Committee
set-up and the proposal heard last
night is that the current system
employs prejudgment of speakers
by the Lecture group while the new
plan would institute postjudgment
by the Joint Judiciary Council of
speeches which allegedly violated
the Regents' by-law on speakers.
Last night's recommitment
action came partially because of
feeling that the proposed policy
was a change merely in admin-
istration of the Regents' rules
rather than a revision of their
content, and that student opin-
ion favored changes in content
rather than administration of
University laws.
When it is presented at the
Nov. 5 meeting, the report will
include the revised proposal of
last spring's plan, along with a
policy proposal which would'
change the content of the Regents'
rule and information on anti-
communist legislation.
This will enable the Legislature
to decide between several definite
proposals on the subject.

Hits Dems for
By the Associated Press
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Re-
publican presidential nominee wills
visit Detroit tomorrow for what is
billed as one of his last three ma-
jor addresses before the election.
He will deliver his address at 9
p.m. in Masonic Temple. It will be
televised and broadcast nationally.
Aides said Eisenhower considers
his Detroit speech-on Korea-as
one of the most important ad-
dresses of his campaign.
IN TROY, N.Y., yesterday Gen.
Eisehower accused the Truman
administration of deliberately
adopting a policy of inflation that
imperiled the nation like "a con-
cealed minefield."
The Republican presidential
nominee charged that the pur-
pose was to win the next elec-
tion by making the people think
they had more money-though
it was worth less.
Eisenhower fired this blast in
an address prepared for delivery
at the Rensselaer Polytechnic In-
stitute field house.

Politics Split N.Y. Tribune Convention


Daily Feature Editor
NEW YORK (Special)-That old devil-presidential politics-
finally reared its ugly head at the closing session of the New York
Herald Tribune Forum Tuesday night.
Political speakers for both major parties proceeded from the outset
of the session to knock the props from under the high plane of earlier
sessions, with a bitterly divided audience of 2,200 booing and cheering
throughout the evening.
IGNORING FOREIGN POLICY pundit Walter Lippman's warn-
ing in the opening address to neither do nor say anything in this elec-
tion campaign "which cannot be forgiven when the votes have been
counted," Democratic and Republican partisans crossed viewpoints
harshly on predictions of the election outcome.
It remained for the candidates themselves, Gen. Eisenhower in

ALMOST IMMEDIATELY afterwards the political battle took
over, when Beardsley Ruml, finance chairman of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee, and Lewis W. Douglas, former ambassador to the
Court of St. James, told *why they switched to Stevenson and Eisen-
hower, respectively.
Ruml, the author of the "pay-as-you-go" tax formula, said
that he had changed his mind after Gen. Eisenhower "embraced
the obsolete and irresponsible economic doctrine of Taft & Co.
-progress through catastrophe, prosperity through depression,
security through unemployment."
Douglas retorted with the charge that the Democrats "must be
held accountable" for the political arrangements of Yalta, which
"had the combined effects of pushing the western frontiers of the
Soviet empire deep into the heart of Europe and dividing Germany
in half."
Other speakers at the final Forum session were: Donald W.
EtvoldL Republican candidate for attorney-general of Washington;
