SPRINGITELD, ILL. Eisenhower's "great crusade" has "been

Other highlights in Stevenson's statements were:
1. He has no intention of endorsing all Democratic candidates.
2. He will not name an .ambassador to the Vatican.
3. He saw the possibility of the reduction of federal spending
and taxes in 1953.
4. He thought the division within the Democratic party "be

5. He thought labor leadership was satisfied with his stands.
WASHINGTON Sen. Wayne Morse (Rep.-Ore:) has refused
to appear with Eisenhower at the AJX convention until he knows
what the general will tell the labor organization.
The Oregon senator, often termed a renegade Republican, said
he could not endorse the speech if Eisenhower takes the stand that
the "basic principles" of the Taft-Hartley act Should not he

However, he has not repudiated Eisenhower's candidacy and
will not do so unless the general "repudiates the sound Republi
