Chairman Oren Harris (D-Arirt gave this report after a closed session. Most of the meeting, Harris told reporters, was devoted to future plans starting with the questioning Wednesday of Boston industrialist Bernard Goldfine. Fox, a business enemy of Goldfine, fias pictured Goldfine as getting special treatment from federal agencies through his iricnd ship with Adams, President Eisenhower's top aide. Threatens Suit* Fox wound up his testimony Monday with threats he would file libel suits against Adams and a lot of other people who called him a liar. Then he went to Pitts burgh where he loosed a new shol today at Goldfine. This was a prediction in a state- ''ment that Goldfine will refuse Wednesday to produce books and records subpoenaed by the Harris committee. Before Fox testified, Goldfine's attorneys .urged that the committee hear him in a closed session. They said they expected Fox would defame not only Goldfine but others, AJid Adams has called; II incredible that a congressional" committee would permit a witness to give the sort of testimony that Fox delivered. to defame anyone. It was in the light of this that the committee talked things over todav.

"We're not going to be hard but we are going to be severe with violators. If they know we're there, I'm sure they will be careful." 1358 Other Criticism There has been other criticism of the committee for not invoking Belk Heirs Want Land .Returned EDWARDSVILLE -Ten heirs of. Robert E. Lea Belk of Wood River Township, in a suit on file today in Circuit Court, asked that judgment for possession of the 233-acre "Belk Memorial Park" in the township be entered in their favor on grounds that the City of Wood River has failed to comply with provisions of Belk's will for development of the tract for public park and recreation purposes. The suit, naming the City of Wood River as defendant, was filed for the plaintiffs by the Alton firm of Green & Hoaejand. It followed by less lhan four months ihc liling of a suit for declaratory judgment, by the city, in a move, to obtain court sanction of plans tor renting out portions of the Belk tract, as yet undeveloped for park purposes, lor crop cultivation and renting of other portions for concessions and camping sites. Plaintiffs in the lutes) suit, identifying themselves as heirs of Robert E. Belk. are Alice G. Hart. Charles A. Belk. Maurice E. Sloper, Grace I.. Cummings, Elizabeth Wordcn, Harry Worden, Alice M. Hainstock, Charles Kuhn, I.illie Mae Barclay and Thomas A. Re/Ik. All are outi-of-state residents.

Police riddled the house with special three-man committee tolmachine-gun and small arms fire decide whether the rule had been violated, but he was ruled out of order. It was learned that records subpoenaed from a Washington hotel confirm that both Goldfine and John Fox, principal accuser of Adams and Goldfine, were registered there on the 1955 day of a conversation about which Fox testified. Fox quoted Goldfine as saying Adams was going to help Goldfine out with the Federal Trade Commission. But the records do not prove whether the statement was made. Both Adams and Goldfine have denied it outside the hearing room. The subcommittee finally dismissed Fox amid-an uproar after and blasted tear gas through winnows after Lt. Thomas H. Truesdale, 58, and Detective Emil Newberg, 56, were slain. When no further gunfire sounded from the house, police entered and found Robert Genereux. 33, cowering in a bedroom closet. Tniesdale and Newberg were among four officers who first entered the house in an attempt to disarm Genereux. He met them with blasts from his .38-caliber pistol.

Edgar Hoover said today American law enforcement has a magnificent record of ac complishment w h i c h refutes charges that it functions as a Gestapo. In a signed editorial in the July issue of FBI's Law Enforcement Bulletin, Hoover expressed re sentment that "an unscrupulous few, through studied insults and calculated distortions, would besmirch and disgrace this world- renowned record of democratic achievement." Hoover mentioned no names. However, his editorial followed a recent TV interview in which Cleveland industrialist Cyrus S. Eaton said that Adolf Hitler at the height of his power "never had such spy organizations as ue have in this country today.' Eaton described the FBI as one of a number of agencies engaged in "snooping, in informing, in creeping up on people." After the broadcast, Hoover said Eaton's slatements about the' FBI were 'vicious and completely untrue." The FBI director wrote in the bulletin that law enforcement has i constantly improved in efficiency, him.

There seemed to be no possibili- y that cither President Eisenhower or Alaskans would 'reject statehood now that Congress has approved it. But before Alaska's star is added to the flag, a monumental task faces the territory in preparing for actual admission to ;he Union. Celebrants who have fought and dreamed of statehood for the vast territory set aside thoughts of the difficult period ahead and toasted victory, proclaimed: "Bigger than Texas, better than California. > Alaska — God's country." In every city of the territory, nnd in its scattered villages and towns, the celebration went on. the merry making as loud orj spontaneous as it was at Anchorage and Fairbanks, centers for years of the statehood movement.
