Praises Rise In
Freedom from fear is the fore
most issue facing the voter when
he goes to the polls this Novem
ber 3, said Senator John Spark'
man in a speech Tuesday.
Sparkman, making an off-the'
cuff address at the University
Coliseum, did not say just what
fear the voter should be free
He did give strong Indications
that two problems were of para
mount Importance in this year's ;
election: foreign relations, and
economic stability in the U. S.
Of foreign relations, the senator
said that he wanted peace, and
had a real knowledge of world
problems. He said that his expe
rience on the Foreign Relations
Committee in the Senate, and as
a United Nations representative,
had given him a clear insight into
the foreign relations problems
that we are facing today.
He said that it is most Im
portant that we let the under
privileged countries of the
world know that we are more
than willing to help them solve
the problems. Sparkman said
that our world today cannot
survive another war of the
same scope of the last World
War, with the terrible weapons
of destruction developed re
cently. Sparkman remarked that our
country has had a steady rise in
the welfare of all the people since
the Democrats took the govern
mental helm, 20 years ago,
Sparkman said, that as a farm
raised man, he knew the prob
lems that faced the American
fanners during the years just
before the Democratic rise to
power. He remembered lost sav
ings, and old people looking
forward to their unproductive
years with apprehension be-
. cause they had no good pension
system. Now, he said, we have
the Federal Deposit Insurance
plan, and Social Security to
avert such apprehension, despite
stiff Republican opposition to
both of these plans. .
Corruption is a major political
issue, Sparkman said. The
publican candidates have
much about corruption, but they,were based on two bills that are have occurred since the last meet

ord of 20 years ago. The Demo-Bi11 and Brannan Farm Plan. Of These "events," since no official
cratic party faced and met theithese two bills he said that they action has been taken on migra-
tremendous task of cleaning up of
the most corrupt governments
ever known to this country when
they took office 20 years ago.
He called attention to Governor
Stevenson's corruption busting
reputation. Stevenson got this
reputation when he cleaned up the
