DELAWARE. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER II. t 954 r EIGHT " WILMINCTON CORNING NEWS. WILMINGTON. McCarthy- Cntliiil tnm rini rtt Is trying to make it possible for senators to accept committee as signments in the future without laying themselves open to "per sonal abuse. "We hope." he declared, "to preserve for the Senate of the United States the right to serve on a committee, go into the facts and make a, report without hav ing (their) motives impugned." McCarthy told Case he never meant to suggest any of the six senators on the Watkins Com-J mittee was sympathetic toward communism. But he continued to insist the committee "unwittingly" served the Communist cause by proposing censure for him. The debate frequently bogged down In technical details before the day was over. Case raised the question whether a two-thirds vote would be needed to censure McCarthy on that portion of the committee's charges which refers to acts occurring before the 83rd Con gress began. Senate Parliamentarian Charles Watkins took the ques tion under advisement Normally a simple majority vote is all that is needed to censure a senator but Case said a question arose over a 1953 election contest whether a senator can be dis ciplined for acts occurring in previous Congress without a two- thirds vote. Democrats Stay Quiet The Democrats what few of them turned out for the debate-mostly sat quiet today and let the Republicans do the arguing. Only three full speeches and part of another were delivered. Watkins opened the debate, saying his committee had no intention of appearing In the role of prosecutor but was offering its censure proposal and would leave any action on it to the Senate's discretion. McCarthy broke in with a series of questions which at times led to sharp exchanges between the . two as they stood side by side. Senator Butler spoke first for the opponents of the censure resolution. He said he would not endorse everything McCarthy has done, but he cautioned fellow senators to be careful on two points: 1. To recognize that senators are subject to much abuse when they investigate subversion and "should be excused if they lose some of their usual patience." Butler said the present wording of the committee's report on the Zwicker incident give's subver-gives "real cause to celebrate." 2. To avoid any such vote of censure as would unduly restrict the acts of other senators in the future. He asked the Senate if it really was ready to say "that senators may not impugn the motives of fellow senators, in the privacy of their own homes, in the company of a group of friends, in our cloakrooms and in the heat of a political campaign." The Klfht To Impugn Butler joined McCarthy in assailing that part of the Watkins Committee report which holds one senator has no right to impugn the motives or character of another. A part of one of the censure charges is that McCarthj violated his principles when he described Senator Hendrickson (R-NJ) as a 'living miracle . . , without either brains or guts." . Senator Bennett (R-Utah) made the. last full length speech ' V , f ' - Vets Day- 9 -1 t. DECLINE AND FALL Tumbling ruins art all that remains of historic Duernstein Castle near Krems, Austria. Built around 1000 A.D., the castle once controlled traffic on the Danube River. Hadmar Kuenring, onetime owner of the castle, became known as the "Scourge of the Danube" for his practice of stringing an iron chain across the river, stopping ships and robbing them or forcing them to pay wicked tolls. of the day, quoting the Bible and Shakespeare but not savin, whether he proposed to go along with Watkins his fellow Repub lican from Utah and vote for censuring McCarthy. Bennett pleaded for the kind of action that will give senators the feeling "we will have dealt justly with the junior senator from Wisconsin and, at the same time, preserved and en hanced the dignity of the Senate itself. Bennett also urged tnat personalities be kept in the back ground. "We are not here to pass judg ment on a fellow senator,'' he said, "but to try issues which involve a man whom he should Impersonate as senator X." Case, who hadn't planned to speak today, began a discussion of the Watkins Committee's re portwith McCarthy questioning him repeatedly after McCarthy and Senator Dirksen (R-Ill) among others, urged that all members of the committee make their positions known. Puts In Word of Praise Case praised McCarthy for doing "a notable job in alerting the country to internal subver sion. But "honorable service" in one field, Case said, "does not create immunity in others." He said McCarthy had "his share of unfair smear attacks," which, Case said, are directed at anyone who attempts to uncover effort? of Communists to infil trate the nation. He called his job on the special censure committee "one of the most unpleasant assignments of my life" and noted that he had not originated any of the 46 charges placed against McCarthy. And he said he was "certainly . . . not out to get Senator McCarthy." Case said frankly the select Advertisement Advertisement Now! Amazing Pazo in NEW STAINLESS Form!

"There was some discussion in the committee that he should be made the subject of comment in the report," Case said. He added he believed Flanders' "interruption of the Army-Mc Carthy hearings to serve notice on the Wisconsin senator of a floor speech, "his reference to him (McCarthy) as Hitler and 'Dennis the Menace,' was wholly out of place and provoking. Flanders had used those de scriptions in Senate speeches. Time ran out on Case before he finished, and he got permission to continue his remarks first thing tomorrow. McCarthy's lawyer, Edward Bennett Williams, sat at his side throughout today's session, fre quently conferring with the sen ator. . McCarthy s wife, Jean, watched most of the proceedings from a front row of the gallery reserved for senators guests. Two of the lawyers engaged by the Watkins Committee ba-J fore it began public hearings last summer, E. Wallace Chad wick and Guy DeFuria, sat near Watkins on the Senate fl''r and sometimes conferred with him and Case. Watkins told the Senate It must make up its own mind, on the basis of his committee's hearings arid report, whether to vote censure of McCarthy. Before packed galleries, and with lone lines of would-be spectators awaiting admittance, the 67-year-old Watkins: "We are not here to argue that our interpretations must be followed." Watkins drew a round of laughter and applause from the gallery at one point, and Senator Bush (R-Conn) presiding at the moment warned against any further demonstrations. In For Serious Trouble This one broke out when Watkins told McCarthy "you're in for serious trouble," if McCarthy accepts all the testimony taken by a 1932 subcommittee which investigated his financial and other affairs. "If you're going to take the po sition now that you're going to be bound by all the evidence in that record, you're in for serious trouble," Watkins declared. McCarthy had just contended that, in view of various items in the 1952 subcommittee's record,; he had a right to criticize the subcommittee.

Many questions were asked by the Hi-Y members after the talk on Korea and the YMCA in that country. 1 . Reich Reds Open Spy Trial of 22 BERLIN, Nov. 10 I).

"Dr. Sam said in that par ticular cue he knew as a doctor a head injury could very easily be claimed." Quarreled Occasionally ' Mrs. Houk, a thin-faced, nervous witness, testified Sheppard and his wife quarreled occasionallyabout cars he bought and about a dishwasher she installed when he was out of town, Mrs. Houk's husband is mayor of Bay Village, the suburban community 12 miles west of here where the Sheppards lived. She was followed to the witness stand by Patrolman Fred F, Drenkhan. one of the village's seven-member police force. He was the first policeman on the scene of the murder. Drenkhan identified two pictures of Marilyn's battered body on her blood soaked bed. Then the trial recessed over .the Vet erans Day holiday until Friday Mrs. Houk was the first person definitely known to have viewed the body of Marilyn in her bed room after she was murdered.

He testified he ortce appealed to Dr. Sheppard to con fess the slaying if he was the murderer. "I figure If it was done by you, it was done in bitter rage," Houk said he told Sheppard after the murder. "Sam replied that he couldn't have done it, hadn't done it." Sheppard, 30, is on trial for his life. The state accuses him of slaying his wife in a quarrel over an affair with another woman.
