This Day That Age
President Truman on September 2, accused Gen. Eisenhower's election command of increasing the risk of atomic war by "talking loosely about liberating the enslaved peoples of Eastern Europe."
In a speech at Parkersburg railway station, West Virginia, he said "master minds" of Eisenhower's campaign were playing "cruel, gutter politics". Among the "master minds" Mr. Truman included "a Republican who helped in the formation of our policy." (He was understood to refer to Mr. John Foster Dulles). Mr. Truman said: "He knows what precarious situation the world is in. He knows how easy it would be to start a war. But, he is perfectly willing to have the Republican Party and the Republican candidate, say things that increase the risk of war, simply in order to get votes."
