(AP) The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled today that a Jobless husband drawing state unemployment benefits must pay for support of his working wife.

Jessup declared today that Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R, WisD, by accusing him oz -communist affinity, showed a "shocking disregard for the interests of our country." With a sweeping denial of any Communist symt pathies, Jessup told a Senate investigating subcommittee that it is La matter of "utmost gravity when an American envoy is "held up be- lore me eyes oi the rest of the world as a liar and traitor." The ambassador-at-large lashed back at McCarthy after speeding home from a surrey mission to the Far East. He said that during bis absence his Integrity was attacked only by two sources McCarthy and the Moscow official newspaper Iz-vestia. . -r i Called Irresponsible Jessup added: v ;, .. j "Anyone who believes in the con cept of guilt by association might draw some startling conclusions from this fact. However, I do not believe in the concept of guilt by association. "Moreover, I do believe that any one who, without adequate proof levels a charge of conscious or ignorant support of communism at a member ox the united states Sen ate or at any official of the United States Government Is lrrespon SibleV - .-. . , v; T have no evidence that Senator McCarthy was motivated by desire to assist the international Com munist movement even though his words and actions have had that effect" As to the charges against him. Jessup said: . , v 1 wish to repeat categorically and without qualification that I am not a Communist and never have been a Communist. "I am not and have never been a Communist sympathizer. T have never knowingly support ed or promoted any movement or organization which I know had as its objective the furtherance of Communist objectives." While Jessup was testifying, Senator. Millard Ty dings (D., Md.) chairman of the subcommittee. produced, and read. letters from Gen. George C. Marshall,- former secretary of state, and Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower praising Jessup for his loyalty and opposition "to communism. . Recalled Dinner McCarthy accused Jessup of an "unusual affinity for Communist causes" 10 days tgo when the Senate foreign relations subcommittee began hearings on the Wisconsin senator's contention that the State Department is shot through with Communists and their sympathizers. ; : . McCarthy also said Jessup once sponsored a subversive organization. '-V " " In another important development, McCarthy finally turned over to Tydings a list of 81 persons who McCarthy says are Communists or Communist sympathizers in the State Department.

New Rate Hike Pleas Hinted In Bell Report Would Follow Action On Request Pending In Three States . BT CARL MAJOR ! .Star-Times Staff Writer The annual report of the South western - Bell Telephone Co. for 1949, released today, implies pos sible requests for new rate increases after the company's pending rate applications are passed upon in Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas. "Over-all, it is evident already that the amounts asked will become, by the time .the increases may be granted, inadequate for the period ahead." the report said. When asked by The Star-Times if this means that additional rate increases will be sought in Missouri, a company spokesman, declining to answer the question yes or no, said "We will let' the report speak for itself." Pending Rate Reqoests Fending before the Missouri Pub-lie Service Commission, which has had the case under advisement since last November, is an application for a $5,OO0.OOO-a-year rate hike in this state. Applications are pending in Arkansas for a $2500.000 rate hike and in Kansas for a $3,460,000 increase. Higher rates also are being sought in Texas, where each city government passes upon such requests. The company's total profits net income available for common stock dividends amounted to $16,159,965 last year on its six-state operations. This compares with $13,587586 for 1948. However, net earnings per share of common stock, a more significant figure, dropped last year to $4.60. a decrease of 63 cents from the 1948 figure of $523 a share. This was because the-company increased its stock by 850.000, shares last year, all being sold to the parent firm, American Telephone te Telegraph Co, at the traditional price of $100 a share. ' . v -. Return Also Down - Not only did stock earnings decline last year, but the: return on total invested . capital stock, debentures, cash advances from A. T. & T and surplus fell to a record low of 3.86 per cent, the report states. The 1948 return on capital invested was 4.09 per cent. Dividends of $5 per share were paid last year,, on the common stock, all owned by A. T. & T. This was the same per share dividend as paid in 1948. but .because of insufficient earnings. $1,403,000 was drawn from surplus last year to make up the deficiency. . The company said that the quali ty of phone service it can provide in -the future win depend upon earnings which, in turn, determine its ability to obtain new funds to finance expansion and improvements. . "Service Must Suffer" "In the end, if earnings are not. sufficient, the quality and adequacy oi service must suiter, for the fundamental fact remains that it is cash earnings from, which dividends can be paid to stockholders that induce them to invest then-savings initially and then Invest further," the report says. "In our present situation, earn ings do not compare favorably wlthldays. tnose or industry m general and are far lower than are needed to attract the necessary capital." . - With the exception of "Ti1ng. company, operations last; year reached new highs in several respects. More customers were served than ever before in its history. There were 3336,000 - phones ' in service at the end of the year, an increase of 254,700 over 1948.

The book was used several years ago-in the political slush fund trial of Union Electric and its former president, Louis H. Egan, in fed eral court here. Treiman said, however, that , the book cannot - be found now and it "seems to have mysteriously disappeared." With the book missing, Treiman introduced photostatic copies of some of the notations in it when Spoehrer took the stand to testi fy for the company, ' The company alleges that the payments from the insurance agency Lawton-Byrne' Bruner Insurance Agency Co. went into a secret political slush fund used by the three former of ficers being sued. t. Defendants are Frank J. Boehm, former $54,000-a-year executive viin-president of the utility; Albert C. Latin, former vice-president and lobbyist, and Oscar F. Funk, former comptroller. The suit has been pending nine years. - Treiman told Judge Hulen that the defendants, "under the leader- ship and at the instigation" of Boehm, participated in a scheme by which the money was diverted from the treasury through falsified bills and vouchers and then kicked back to the defendants. This, was in the 1930s. He said about $360,000 was obtained through kickbacks from three lawyers on the Union Elec tric pay roll and about $16,000 from padded expense accounts. About $10,000 received from the insurance agency as credits on insurance taken out with the agency was diverted by the defendants to the slush fund, it is alleged. Sebastian C. Pugliese of Pitts burgh, attorney for Boehm, told the court his client does not deny that company funds were used for political purposes. But, he said, the scheme was "conceived" by Union Electric's parent company, the North American Co. of New York and the latter company's eff leers. It was, said Pugliese, a grand master plan" concocted by North American for its entire ntffity sys tem. The Union Electric officers, he asserted; "were but creatures of the parent company, and acted on orders of the parent firm.'' - , - Reds Block Americans From Leaving Shanghai WASHINGTON, March 20 (AP) The State Department said today the Chinese Communists have blocked a mass evacuation of Americans and other foreigners from China by a last-minute refusal to let two landing craft into Shanghai Nearly 2,000 foreigners including 310 Americans had planned to leave probably tonight in the first such general evacuation since last fall.
