(AP)_ Senator McCartliy stirred curiosity today by talking of a "mising link" in his case on Owen Laltimore, the man lie has called Ru&sU's top spy in this country. The tumultuous inquiry Into McCarthy's charges of Communism In the State Department was enlivened meanwhile by an exchange which McCartliy contends wil prove hts accusations. Lattimore. an American speci on Far Eastern affairs, has denied under oath McCarthy's charges that he is or has been a Communist and that he is a Soviet agent. Mystery Witnesm McCarthy spent the week-eiiS getting In touch with mystery witnesses he has said will back up his contentions regarding Lattimore. He has promised to tell a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee tomorrow whether they have agreed to testify Thursday. That group Is handling the Investigation of hts charges. Senator McCarthy askeci r Dean Acheson if the only missing link in the Lattimore case is proof of either membership In the Communist Party or payment by the party, and that if such proof is forthcoming that then can Latiimore truly be labeled as Russia's top agent in this country?" : ; McCarthy put the question in a telegram to Acheson last night. Tt wns the first time he had said anything about "payment by the party" in connection with Ihe Lattimore care. McCarthy's Washington office distributed the text of the telegram and said he had sent It to Acheson from New York.-A McCarthy\alde called attention to the "payment, by the party" phrase, but declined to amplify It. . : , Key Ve( HemalTW.- '•-t Whether It Is a key to testimony J,yh.icll McCarthy.

In his telegram to Achrson, McCarthy said he was "shocked to learn that the State Department sprang to the defense of Owen Lattimore" after McCarthy made a new attack on Lattimore in a speech from a public platform Saturday in Pas'alc, N.J. In that speech McCarthy also again assailed Philip C. Jeesiip, key adviser to Acheson, arid career diplomat John s. Service.
