Cohn Says Army Tried to Use Hold on Schine to Stop Inquiry Aid to McCarthy Denies He Sought Special Privileges for Pal Who Was Drafted. WASHINGTON, March 15 (AP) Roy Cohn, chief counsel of the Senate Investigations subcommittee, Insisted last night that top Army officials did try to use his drafted pal. Pvt. G. David Schine, as a "bargaining point" to halt investigations of alleged Communism in the Army. Cohn firmly denied that he had sought special privileges for Schine. The accusation marked another high point in the battle of charges and counter-charges between Cohn and Senator McCarthy (Rep.), Wisconsin, the subcommittee chaijian. on the one hand, and Secretary of the Army Robert T. B. Stevens on the ether. Cohn denied the Army's accusations that he and others on the subcommittee sought special treatment for Schine, a former non salaried consultant to the subcommittee. He said he never sought, for instance, to have Schine excused from kitchen police duty during his basic training at Fort Dix. Interviewed on the NBC "Meet the Press" television show, Cohn said "The Army . . . one or two individuals in the Army ... did their very best to stop us" from continuing the Communist investigation. "They were using the fact they had this hold on Dave Schine as a bargaining point." He said he attended a meeting in Stevens's office last November at which, he said, the Army's general counsel, John G. Adams, promised to provide "plenty of dirt" about the Navy, Air Force and Defense Department if the subcommittee would investigate them instead of the Army. "A special proposal was made to us that we go after an Air Force base, where Mr. Adams told us there were a number of sex deviates that would make excellent hearings," he said. The location of such a base was not mentioned. Cohn said Adams drew a map of the United States on a note book, marked it off into nine numbered sections, and offered to "mark the air base" on the map "if we would mark the Army base" which the subcommittee was then planning to investigate. Cohn acknowledged that he had learned members of the subcommittee staff had circulated a paper among themselves pledging loyalty to him. He said he told one of the staff members "I was very sorry he ever told me" about it but did not order the circulation stopped. He termed "absolutely untrue" any suggestion that he had said it would be "the worse" for staff members who didn't sign the loyalty pledge. Cohn was asked in the question and answer program whether he thought circulation of such a pledge would disqualify the staff from handling any investigation of the Army's accusations against him. He replied that he would "abide by any decision" Senators on the subcommittee might make on that score. On other points covered in the questioning Cohn said: His law firm in New York never "profited by one cent" from doing business for the wealthy Schine family. "Of course I didn't" threaten to "wreck" the Army and get rid of Stevens as Secretary if Schine failed to get requested favors. The only special treatment asked in Schine's behalf was permission for him to devote weekends and after-hours effort to completing work on which he had been engaged when he was drafted. He said the Army "reneged on the agreement" one weekend. Cohn said "the only hold I have on McCarthy Is his loyalty . . . for assisting him in the fight to keep this country free of atheistic Communism." In the row with the Army Cohn said he "acted as I always have according to my conscience." ' BRITISH ANTI-SUBMARINE HELICOPTERS GO IN SERVICE PORTSMOUTH, England.

" MOSSADEGH'S CAPTURED AID TO FACE TREASON CHARGES' TEHRAN, March 15 (AP) Iran plans to try former Foreign Minister Hossein Fatemi, firebrand chief aid of ex-dictator Mohammed Mossadegh, on treason charges in about two months. Fatemi was captured Saturday after having been in hiding since the August 1953 revolution. Knifed by a bystander shortly after his arrest, he was reported resting comfortably today in the prison hospital. He had two wounds in his right side. Chief Prosecutor Hossein Axe-modeh said Fatemi would face the same charges as Mossadegh, who is now serving a three-year sentence for attempting to unseat Shah Mohammed Reza Pah-levi.

The envoy, Susanto Tirtoprodjo, returned yesterday from the southeast Asian republic with an official note he said would be delivered to The Hague Government within a few days.
