McNamara Claims Ike Not In Charge
By PETE ECKSTEIN
"I don't think Eisenhower really
ever has been the President," Sen.
Patrick V. McNamara (D-Mich.)
said Sunday, "and there will not
be a great difference in the opera-
tions of the Administration" due
to the President's illness.
Speaking at a Democratic par-
ty barbecue near Ann Arbor, Sen.
McNamara charged "the govern-
ment is in the hands of men like
Weeks, Humphrey and Adams, who
seem to veto everything that is
for the people and favor every-
thing that is for the giant corpora-
tions and giant financial institu-
He said he was "sorry the Pres-
ident has been incapacitated to
the degree that he has been. It's
obvious his health has been be-
low par. I don't think he could
stand the pressure of the office.
"It's logical," Sen. McNamara
told a crowd of approximately 250
persons, "that others should carry
the brunt of the job."
The freshman senator criticized
the last session of Congress for
"too much compromise and not
enough accomplishment, too much
concern for giant corporations and
giant financial institutions and no't
enough for the people."
Refprrmg to the Republican slo-
gan of "Peace and Prosperity," he
answered with one of his own -
"Prosperity for Whom?"

"There is little prosperity for
the farmer and too much unem-
ployment," he asserted, setting the
jobless figure at from two-and-
a-half to three million men. Sen.
McNamara predicted "the Admin-
istration's hard money policy will
add considerably to that figure be-
fore next year's election.
'Going Too Fast'
"The hard money policy," he
continued. "is a continuation of
the Mark Hanna program of op-
erating government for the bene-
fit of the few. People who have
to go to the banks find the policy

Calling the farmers the "for-

said a Democratic agriculture pro-
gram "hasn't jelled yet." The sen-
ator told reporters at the barbe-
cue that he favors a program

senator asserted, "are not sharing
in prosperity to the degree that
giant corporations and giant fi-
nancial institutions are." He said
that while their business volume
is high, the independents are re-
ceiving "little profit."
Turning to the elections, Sen.
McNamara described Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams as "probably the
greatest campaigner in the coun-
try." He said he favors the
"young and vigorous" governor for

senator said, "whether Eisenhow-
