Bowl Hopes Fade:

By UN Delegate
Special To The Ihaily
UNITED NAITIONS, N. Y.-The Byelorussian Soviet Socialist
Republic got a belated lesson in American satire yesterday when
Charles A. Sprague of the United States informed the Communist
satellite that The Daily was being funny and not warmongering in
an editorial last January.
The lecture on humor came up in a debate on freedom of infor-
mation in the UN Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural committee.
Earlier this week, White Russian delegate Mrs. F. A. Novoikov blasted
The Daily as an example of the "war-mongering" American press.

ST. LOUIS - (P) - President
Truman wound up the most stren-
uous campaign of his career last
night with a forecast of victory
for Adlai E. Stevenson-and a
S warning of national disaster if
Dwight D. Eisenhower is elected
"We would have the ultimate
ironyofa general who stood for
the defense of the free world when
he was in uniform, presiding over
fthe liquidation of our foreign pol-
icy," the President declared.

TRUMAN'S FINAL speech of the
1952 campaign came in the same
Missouri city where he ended his
own 1948 fight for his election to
the White House.
"I finished my 1948 campaign
in St. Louis and we won," Tru-
man said. "We're going to win
again this time."
Then in an address bristling
with barbed attacks on Eisenhower
and the GOP leadership the Pres-
ident summed up the case he has
made for Stevenson in some 18,-
000 mijes of campaigning through
30 states from coast to coast.
He accused the General of us-
ing campaign tactics on Korea
which "have already begun to un-
dermine our unity in the struggle
He said Eisenhower had been
using "the same kind of innuendo
and distortion" in his speeches
that have come to be known as
'McCarthy-ism-a shocking and

AND HE DROPPED into his
speech a new side-swipe at Eisen-
hower, saying the General as re-
cently as four years ago favored
lower pay for new soldiers.
"Back in 1948," Truman said,
"He (Eisenhower) testified before
a committee of Congress that he
thought draftees should not re-
ceive any pay except cigarette

BUT YESTERDAY, Oregon edi-
tor Sprague, armed with several
relevant copies of the paper, spell-
ed, out-in simple words with few
syllables-the facts which The
Daily has communicated to the
Soviet bloc at least three times
before: the editorial, entitled""I
Killed the President," by former
senior editor Rich Thomas, was
intended as a takeoff on the rash
of anti-Soviet fiction then cur-
rent in American magazines.
Sprague poined out, more-
over, that the "editors felt the
editorial was not fully under-
stood and an explanation 'was
printed by the newspaper the
following day." That explanation
was in the hands of the Byelor-
ussian delegate when she made
her original attack-but she did
not mention it at the time.
Mrs. Novokov's onslaught had
charged that The Daily accused
the White Russian Republic of
building submarine bases at Minsk,
a well-known inland city.
In rebuttal Sprague explained
once more that The Daily had as-
sured him this obvious impos-
sibility "was Inserted in the edi-
torial purposely to add to the ridi-
cule intended by the satire and
with the knowledge that there
could be no such base in Minsk."

4. That the full resources of a

tling away of the value of the dol-
lar" must be stopped.

In the nightmarish first half
Illinois blocked two Michigan
punts in succession for a safety
and its first two points. After Full-
back Ken Miller slanted 25 yards
to make the score 9-0, the flini
intercepted a pass and recovered a
fumble and turned them into two
At that, the margin might have
grown considerably bigger during
the first two periods except for
some stout Michigan defensive
play. Illinois first downs on Michi-
gan's 27, 7 and 21-yard-lines on
three different occasions in the
initial quarter but failed to score.
ILLINI PUNTS and a stout line
kept Michigan deep in its own ter-
ritory most of the first half. More
than 26 minutes ticked by before
the Wolverines broke into Illinois
territory. Through the whole first
half Michigan gained only 27 yards
on 17 rushes and 19 yards by com-
pleting 3 of 13 passes.
So futile were the offensive
gestures that Michigan's best
scoring chance before intermis-
sion was a defensive maneuver
by safety man Lowell Perry. He
made Michigan's only pass in-
terception of the half on his own
30 and returned to the Illinois

Illinois by contrast ran the ball
24 times, with fullback Miller car-

He scoffed, at what he said
were the views, held by some per-
sons that the Republican nom-
inee will be the "old Eisenhower"
after the election.
"Well, I don't believe it and
neither do they," Stevenson said.
"This suggestion that he will
double-cross his new-found friends
as soon as he gets into office does
credit neither to the . General's
integrity nor to Senator Taft's
Stevenson said that when Eisen-
hower was in the middle west he
identified himself with "the most
reactionary and isolationist wing
of the Republican party."
"But he recognized that the
songs he sang in what he consid-
ered isolationist territory would
not be music to the ears of east-
ern Republicans. So when he came
east he summoned a new ghost
from the Republican haunted
house and asked for a new script."
STEVENSON chose the windup
of the campaign to make one of
the most blistering assaults on
Eisenhower that he has made in
all the campaigns.
He said the Republican party
had "taken a bewildering variety
of positions" during the campaign
and then he said: "And in the
Republican choir the General has
shown an admirable capacity to
sing bass, baritone and tenor all

Only relief from the dejected

who pranced away from the Sta-

They went completely uncon-

as to parody "The Victors."
