Tom Dewey Doesn't
ALBANY, N. Y. UP Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey, an untiring
campaigner for Dwight D. Eisen
hower before and after the Repub
lican convention, removed himself
today from the new president’s
cabinet picture. Dewey announced
Thursday night, however, he “ex
pects and intends" to finish his
term as governor of New York. It
ends in 1954. “My only interest is
serving out my term as governor
and from now on that is going to
be my answer to any questions on
the subject,” he said.
“His victory was the greatest of
any man in history and I know
that Congress will follow his lead
ership,” Dewey said.
Dewey was credited with swing
ing New York’s 45 electoral votes
to Eisenhower. His efforts in be
half of Eisenhower were climaxed
with an 18-hour television mara
thon on the eve of the election.

UNITED NATIONS. N. Y. dpi—
Russian Foreign Minister Andrei
Y. Vishinsky declared today that
the Korean was is a "military
fiasco” for the United States.
Speaking in the United Nations'
main political committee, Vishinsky
accused Secretary of State Dean
Acheson. and Western spokesmen
supporting him, of ignoring facts
and directing attention to only one
issue in the truce talks—the volun
tary repatriation of war prisoners.
“Tlie U. S. delegation has done
this,” he said, "knowing that this
principle- is totally unacceptable
and therefore has been rejected.
"Consequently, any insistence
upon it inevitably will lead to the
collapse of the Panmunjom truce
talks and the further protraction
of the war.”
The 20 countries co-sponsoring
with the United States a resolution
calling for an immediate truce and
acceptance of voluntary repatria
tion of prisoners were not seeking
an end to the Korean war, the
Kremlin firebrand said.
"They felt their task," he said,
“was to help the ruling circles of
the U. S. to get out of a difficult
situation in which they are floun
dering, having unleashed a bloody
war with far-reaching designs at
the beginning—but which has turn
ed out to be a fiasoo as a military
