Berle Says Communists
Seek Truman Defeat
The strategy of Communists hi the
United States is to defeat President
Truman m IMS and elect an isola
tionist President and Congress, in
the opinion of Adolf A. Berle, Jr.,
Chairman of the New York Liberal
Mr, Berle predicts Communists
will tie in with certain factions in
the Republican Party to bring about
an isolationist national government.
He expects that there will be no se
cret about the alliance . It is already
out in the open in New York State,,
he said. J.
"This should not seepi so surpris
ing," Mr. Berle said in an interview.
"The most reactionary elements in
our country co-operated with the
Hitler regime for business purposes.
They sold scrap iron and aviation
gasoline to Japan. They are now ins.
tent on doing business with Russia.
"Their program calls for under
mining the present State Depart
ment policy whenever it is possible."
Mr. Berle's political position is
that of an independent liberal. He
has thrown his support-to progres
sive government in the city and
stater for many years. 1
He helped elect Fiorelle H. La
Guardia, Mayor of New York. He
liked Thomas E. Dewey as the ener
getic young lawyer and supported
him when he Mrst ran for district
attorney. He was an original mem
ber of the Franklin Roosevelt, New
Deal and served as Assistant Sec re
tary of State under Cordell Hull
"Independent liberal* in both w
jor parties have their job cut out for
them," Mr. Berle said. This job is
to test issues and candidates for pub
lic office by liberal standards; The
liberal standard has never changed;
it is neither Right nor Left, neither
pink nor black, in his opinion.
It is the standard of civil liberties,
respect for individual human dignity,
a clear realisation that mankind
most work together for peace and
The problem of the liberal is two
fold, according to Mr. Berle. First,
he most work but Ida ideals on a
state and local basis. Second, he
must know what to dj on a national
In New York State, the liberal
Party is for the tirstvtime a legally
recognised party. It is naming its
own candidates for the November
elections. It broke away from the
American Labor Party when the New
York liberals decided that the ALP
was under Communist influence. 1
"The Labor Party was the liber
als' place in New York until the
Communists took over," Mr. Berle
said. He noted that the ALP cur
rently is supporting some Republi
can justices as its nominees in the
coming elections. Tills is only the
beginning of the Communist tie-in;
by way of the Labor Party, with the
Republicans, in the opinion of Mr.
The problem of liberalism on a
national scale is more complex. Mr.
Berle does not favor a national third
party at this time. Liberals should
work within the framework of the
two-party system?at least for the
moment, he ,aid.
He would like to see the major
parties carefully distinguished along
conservative and liberal lines. "It
would be ideal if we could get all the
liberal Democrats and Republicans
together and all the reactionary De
mocrats 'and Republican; in the
same party," he said..
On the other hand, he warned lib
erals throughout the country to
avoid any political alliances which
would return the country to isola

Tobacco harvest was reported well
under way in most sections and over
half completed in many of the east

60 per cent completed in the Border
"Small grains turned out excep
tionally well, and prospects for corn
are much better thhn in any other
year", the report continued. "Tobac
co yields will be much above average,
although possibly not as good as in
1846. Hay crops have made much

most as good as lsot year's. All crops
have made considerable improvement
