Ike Relates GOP
Vic tory Methods
President Hits McCarthy Tactics;
Fully Endorses Dulles Policy Stand
WASHINGTON-(P)-President Eisenhower told Republicans in
Congress-Sen. Mecarthy of Wisconsin among them-Wednesday that
their party will stay in power only if they adopt "a progressive, dyna-
mic program enhancing the welfare of the people of our country."
Without ever mentioning McCarthy, the President in effect took
the position that the Wisconsin senator has picked the wrong issue
for the political struggles that lie ahead.
* * * *
WHEREAS McCARTHY insists Reds-in-government will be a big
issue in 1954, Eisenhower expressed renewed conviction that it won't
be. Long before that, he said, the Administration will have made such
progress in rooting subversives out that they no longer will be a "seri-
ous menace."
Then the President laid down his own prescription for victory:
" Republicans should fight for the
"progressive, dynamic program"
he will lay before Congress In
WorldNews January.

Mild Dip Seen
By Flaherty
The United States is currently
experiencing a mild economic de-
cline to a lower but more stable
level, William C. Flaherty, chief
statistician of the Detroit Chrys-
ler Corporation, said in a lecture
at the School of Business Adminis-
tration last night.
The address, titled "The Eco-
nomic Outlook for 1954," was'
sponsored by Alpha Kappa Psi,
professional business fraternity.
Flaherty cited p o p u l a t i o n
changes, living standards, the
monetary system, new processes
and business expectations as the
dynamic factors influencing the
h economic shift.
The high post-war demand for
housing, aided a #boom that is now
subsiding somewhat, but not
enough to alarm the business
world, he said. Consumer and sales
standards will continue to be high
and may take an upward turn in
the latter half of next year, Flah-
erty predicted.

Eisenhower added, in a news
conference statement plainlyin-
tended to squelch intra-party dis-
sension, that he knew his senti-
ments were shared "by the vast
majority of my close associates
both in the Senate and in the
House of Representatives."
'V * *
"BECAUSE of this unity'of feel-
ing such a program will be en-
acted," he declared.
The President gave full en-
dorsement to Secretary of State
Dulles in a row with McCarthy
over U.S, foreign policy.
Countering McCarthy's recent
complaint that the administration
was adopting a "perfumed note"
policy, the President cautioned
against any swing toward "coer-
cion" in dealing with America's
allies. This closely paralleled the
view expressed by Dulles Tuesday
in rebuffing M Carthy's criticism.
McCARTHY HAD no immediate
comment on Eisenhower's state-
ment, but said he might have
something to say Thursday.
The President, in a prepared
statement, said:
"In all that we do to combat
subversion, it is imperative that
we protect those rights to the
limit of the powers of the of-
fice with which I have been en-
trusted by the American people."
There were other items of news.
The President said in answer to
1.) He'd want to give the matter
a lot of study before saying wheth-
er the. chances are good for a
meeting between the Western Pow-
ers and Russia.
2.) Despite Democratic charges$
of laxity or worse against the Jus-
tice Department, he has the same
confidence in Atty. Gen. Brownell
as he has in all other Cabinet
members.. That means consider-
able confidence, he said.

Unfair Policies
A Student Legislature member
last night charged evidence of
discrimination in Union policy of

University's housing policy and in
membership of'the local Chamber
of Commerce.
Paul Dormont, '55, elected to SL
last month, read a 15-page report
citing case histories of individuals
applying for jobs 'in the Union
dining room, as well as interviews
and surveys taken among students
in University housing in attempts
to prove his case.
DORMONT'S claims of Union
discrimination, however, w e r e
quickly denied by Franklin C.
Kuenzel, general manager of the
Union. Kuenzel said "there is no
such policy of discrimination in
the dining room. The Union," he
added, "does not discriminate on
the basis of race, color or creed."
Kuenzel said "there are cer-
