COURIER NEWS ; — ._ ByRay Ellis and Ed Kudlaty \ Long live George Washington," the people snouted at fill inauguration. Although not verwd in the principle! of government, h« wos : honest oni ever faithful to the liberty of America. HJ'S persona! character was worth o greot deol to the new democratic experiment. After two terms, Washington let it be known (hat ht wished to retire. His lost care was to prepare his "farewell Address," which coming generations looked to as a priceless political heritage. Hit administration was important because it was able to launch the government on a safe and enlightened plane. Washington was "First in War, First in Peace _and First in trie Heorls of His Coi 'Untrymen." Memphis Asked To Up Reward Murderer By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON W _ The Senate Internal security subcommittee today urged further investigation of Red Influences In the ration's schools and colleges and said there are "many hundreds of teachers svho are Communists.",,. The subcommittee said it has turned up evidence from all parts of the country oil Communist penetration of colleges, high schools and elementary schools. • During Its public hearings in New York City last September and October, the group said, It became apparent It could only survive the situation in a broad fashion nnd submit an Interim report to the new Congress. f' This it did today, in a 13-page report to IU parent body, !he Senate Judiciary Committee, The subcommittee's findings seem certain to spur plans afoot in the new Republican-controlled Con- jjress for an intensive search for subversives In (he nation's schools Rep. Velde (R-I11) already has Said the House Un-American Activities Committee, wl)lch he Is slated to head, Is ready to undertake such an investigation. Sen McCarthy (R-wls) also has called for such a probe. McCarthy Will Cooperate McCarthy will . be chairman ol the Senate's permanent investigations subcommittee, but he said It would be willing to turn over Its .files and co-operate with another congresslpnal unit. The internal security subcommittee specifically-recommended that it continue investigation in the educational field. In addition, it proposed that state legislatures consider setting up committees to undertake similar probes locally. It was still not. clear how the new Congress will handle Its Com - nunfst Investigations, although Senale Republican Leader Taft of Ohio said last night the lines of jurisdiction will be staked out between committees to prevent overlapping, i Taft told interviewers on an NEC television program that the Senate's GOP Policy Committee will iron out any conflicts In the Senate, then reconcile any differences with the House. Taft said It has not been decided whether McCarthy will 'be given Ihe major Investigative role. He said he favored a search for subversives in colleges but only where (here was evidence of organized Communist groups. He wouldn't investigate Individual professors he said. Report Given .The internal security subcommittee report, submitted under the expired chairmanship of Sen McCarran (D-NevJ, said without going info details: •-.' . "Testimony before the subcommittee indicated specifically that Communist activity took place among teachers in Philadelphia. Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, and Madison, Wis.; as well as reflecting the certainty ol substantial Communist activity among teachers In other areas. "Several universities also' were died in testimony as containing Communist units." The subcommittee drew these conclusions in its report: . "1. Despite the unquestioned loyally and self-sacrificing devotion to duty of the preponderant bulk of America's teachers, there are yet many hundreds ol teachers who are Communists. "2. Communist teachers rndiate an influence much greater than their proportionate number. "4.

Police Commissioner Claude Armour said he would ask the city commissioner about Increasing the city's share of (he total reward at Us next meeting. Miss McKnlght, 24 - year - old daughter of Ihe owner of a Helena, Ark., plywood and veneer factory died 52 hours after she was slugged Jan. 2 by a sidewalk bandit. Her death set off one of the biggest manhunts in Memphis history. She was walking to her apartment when the attack occurred The blow— police think the killer 'wore brass knuckles— crushed her skull Police said the slugging Ecemed to be the lyork of a "mugger" who stunned and robbed two other persons in the same area a few davs earlier. "Our police department . . . has no clues whatever to work on In the case. It may be that a larger reward offer ' will bring in the information that will lead to the arrest nnd conviction of the killer" Armour said nothing new had been turned up by the scores of detectives and police assigned to the case. the Communist conspiracy. ' "5. Legislative committees either of ihe Senate- or of Congress have aided local school authorities by sketching a pattern of Communist activities and by exposing Communist teachets. "B. A Communist is not a nt person, to be placed or retained In a position to influence the minds of the youth of America."

Well, if he Isn't In his usual haunts, you might try a remodeled 160-year-old brick building across Ihe street fro'm the old House office building. Here, opening Its doors today, is located an organization new to the Washington scene—The Capitol Hill Club. Who belongs to It? Rep. James C. Aucblncloss of New Jersey, the club's first president, gives these qualifications for membership: "You must be a gentleman or lady, you must be a Republican, nnd you've gol to have 50 bucks." The Rev. Dr. Albert p. Bhirkey of the ML Vernon Place Methodist Church yesterday termed the club "a sin, a shame and a blight on the country." \ 'If ever I have Leen disheartened," he said in a sermon, "11 was when I learned that within a stone's throw of Ihe Capitol, there is going lo be opened up, by the new leaders of government, a Itqupr lounge where (hey may go for cocktails nnd then into separate rooms for conferences.... "To have the leadership of this country work out "their plans In liquor lounge is going to be a terrible thing for tlie country." Auchincloss and some friends thought up tl)e Club several years ago—soon after the Republicans tost their fifth straight presidential election. They thought Ihere ought to be a place for party stalwarts to nurse their wounds and rally their spirits for the 1952 campaign. A series of difficulties—finding a i.suitable headquarters was the ]*-;ii'j:riaI one — delayed mailers until there was no longer a need for a Republican wailing wall. One of Ihe club's first functions, In fact, will be an open house for Washington visitors—Republican ones— during next week's Inauguration Reputation Is New GOP Club festivities. More than 400 persons, including some of the biggest names in the party, already are members of the Capitol Hill Club. Their three-story club house otters them, among olhcr things three sedately decorated dining rooms, a lounge and a small for- men-only bar. For women, there is a small special dining room. Bells summon members of Congress to Capitol mi] Club when there is a quorum call or olhcr business requiring their presence. All this cost some S150.000, an tho end 'is not yet. Warmed b their election victory, the Repub licans nre talking of. an 'adjacen seven-story building, to cost mor than a million dollars, which won! house their National Commute and affiliated bodies. Initiation fee for the Capitol Hi club Is $25. Dues are $25 a yen if you live hereabouts, 550 a yea for non-residents. You can buy life membership for $1,000.
