Sen. Kefauver Defends
Democrat’s Innocence
WILMINGTON, Del., — Sen.
Estes Kefauver campaigned inten
sively in Delaware yesterday after
noon and last night despite a cold
and sore throat, asserting any
mg doing in the Democratic
party in the past was “infinites
imal” compared with Eisenhower
administration “giveaways.”
The Democratic vice-presiden
tial nominee, starting a week’s
seven-state, 4,000-mile swing, rode
in an open car through Dover and
Wilmington and made three sched
uled speeches as well as one
impromptu talk.
Kefauver’s first appearance was
at an open air rally in front of
the Delaware State Capitol Build
ing after a midafternoon depar
ture Trom Washington. In this talk
he said the Democrats “now have
a party of idealism, a clean party,
worthy of your full support.”
Asked at his news conference if
this meant he did not consider the
party clean in the past, he an
swered :
“I didn’t mean that in those

Speaking on community property
laws between man and wife in
Texas, Stewart, a practicing at
torney, pointed out that under the
Texas constitution, property is as

to three categories.
“Property owned by the husband

marriage belongs to them alone,”
he said, “but all property earned
after marriage is community pro

terms. I felt the Democratic party
needed many more hard working
women volunteer’s and the enthu
siasm of young people. We had
grown a little stodgy and that’s
why we lost the 1952 election.
But we have been much rein
vigorated since that time.”
In a speech last night at a rally
at a Wilmington high school, he
said women are going to vote in
record numbers this fall and most
of them will support the Demo
crats because of the “rising tide
of inflation.”
Kefauver defended his running
mate, Adlai Stevenson, from a
charge made earlier in the day
by Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) that
the former Illinois governor was
“too naive” to be commander- in-
chief of the nation’s armed forces.
“We of the Democratic party
have a program that is good for
the people and we have men who
are capable of carrying out foreign
policies without losing us all of
the friends in the world that Mr
Dulles’ and Gen. Eisenhower’s
policies have lost us.”
President Outlines Growth,
Continued Corps Progress
Speaking before the entire cadet corps and especially
to the approximate 650 cadet officers taking the oath of
office, President David H. Morgan today said, “We can
never be contented with what we have accomplished—we
must continue to push forward in the development of the
In opening, President Morgan touched on the signifi
cance of the ceremony in that it “is one rich in meaning be

which public opinion is form

“The public sees the Corps
only on parades and reviews. Un
fortunately, too many people think
of the Corps only in terms of these
functions and in terms of bracing
on the campus and r eports of men
tal harrassment.”
In explaining the feeling of some
Aggies that some of the correction
placed on freshmen students has
a role to play “in the so-called de
velopment of man,” the president
pointed out that “change is a part
of life itself. Yet there is tre
mendous resistance because we all
feel so smugly secure in old pat
terns of action.”
The Corps Is A Privilege
“As I have stated in previous
talks,” Morgan said, “the Corps
comes first. It is more important
than any individual. Since ROTC
is an elective, it is a privilege and
not a right to be a member of the
Corps. The privilege of r emaining
must be earned.
“However, if it is to be a privi
lege to be in the Corps, the Corps
must be worthy.”
The president went on with “Gen

is to an addict or alcohol is to an
alcoholic. One shot or one drink
leads to another until the very
soul of the individual becomes dis
“The Corps can be one body,
or it can be a disintegrated mass
with cancerous growths eating
away at its heart and body until
even its soul is destroyed with
only the frame showing,” he added.
Morgan praised this crop of ca
det officers by saying “we are
convinced that we have the depth
in leadership this year which we
lacked last year. You, the cadet
officer’s have the ability and we
have confidence that you will use
that ability in the best interests
of the Corps.”
