TWO (ARK.)' COURIER Committee to Decide Future of Vincent By JERRV T. BAUI.CH WASHINGTON Un — The question whether.diplomat John Carter Vincent shall continue In the foreign 'service has been handed lo a five-man board especially created to examine tits loyalty anew. The board. WEIS set up late Satnr- day by President Truman, who said he agreed with Secretary of State Acheson that a further examination • was called for in the case of Vincent, Jong a target of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) and others, who have accused him of Communist leanings. The government's top Loyalty Review' Board found reasonable doubt of Vincent's loyalty and recommended that he be fired. In an exchange of memoranda made public by the White House, Acheson said he could, not "In good conscience" make a final decision because the board's report was, in his words, confusing and inconclusive. Among other things, the board cfled what (I called Vincent's "studied praise" of the Chinese Communists and criticism of Chl- ing Kai-shek's Chinese Nationalist government In the early 1940s. Vincent, 5?, a key figure in shaping U. S. Far Eastern policy in those years, was suspended by the Slate Department after the loyally board findings were announced Dec. IS, He was called home from Tangier, where he was 0. S. consular agent. Vincent, ft veteran of 30 years in the diplomatic service, said there was nn doubt in his mJnri About "my absolute and constant loyalty to the United Stales." Earlier, he had denied any Communist affiliations. The new board will be the Ihlrd group to consider Vincent's loyally. The State Department's own board announced last February that Vincent had been fully cleared of charges questioning his loyalty and whether he was a good "security risk." Ttie security clearance. Involving whether he might let out government secrets, wns not subject to review as was the loyalty clearance. The: board will consist of retired U. s. circuit Judge Learned B. Hand of New York, chairman;' John J. Mcctoy, former high commissioner for Germany; James Oraflon Rogers, former assistant secretary of state; O. Holland Bhaw, retired foreign service of- fleer «nd former assistant secretary of slate, and Edwin C. Wilson, retired foreign service officer and former ambassador to Panama and to Turkey. Acheson said tin Loyalty Re- View Board's recommendations are serious and Impressive and must be given great weight. But the final decision, he declared, must remain his own. Unless the new board nets in th« Vincent fuse before the turnover of administrations Jan. 20, the final decision will be up to John Foster Dulles, designated secretary of slate In the Eisenhower Cabinet. In explaining his unprecedented action, Acheson said the bonrd's recommendation was made by a 3 lo 2 margin: The minority, he snld, found "no evidence bad been produced which lead them to have a doubt as to Vincent's loyally." As 1 tor Vincent's criticism of the Chinese Notionalist* and praise of the Chinese Reds, Adheson said this was not necessarily proof of any disloyalty. He said K was Vincent's duty as a foreign service officer lo report facts as ho saw them regardless of whether his conclusions followed official policy. To prevent a diplomat from doing this. Acheson declared, "would lower the high tradition of our own foreign .service."
