CAP) — A young Navy flier denied to a board of admirals today that he "peddled on Capitol Hill" the anonymous document which touched off the B-36 bomber Investigation. Lt. Samuel P. Ingram declared that in fact he never saw the document until the House Armed Services Committee began an Investigation. Ingram testified before a Navy court.of Inquiry. The court Is trying to find out whether any Navy nen, other than Cedric R. Worth, a civilian employee, had any part n preparing and circulating the now discredited memorandum. Ingram said he did know some- .hing about how the document came be prepared—that Rep. Charles B. Deane (D-NC) had asked Worth 'or a memorandum of information on national defense. CapL Sanford Wood, Navy judge advocate, said Chairman Vinson CD- of the House Armed Services Committee had said Ingram "peddled" the document. Wood also called attention to previous testimony that Rep. Lyle :D-Texas) called Vice - Admiral John D. Price, now vice-chief of naval operations, and complained .hat Ingram was "peddling" the memorandum and "making a nuisance of yourself." lie asked Ingram to explain thnt. Ingrain said: "I cannot explain It —I never had the anonymous document so I couldn't peddle It." Nor did he pass around information or related subject matter, that young officer insisted. Admiral Thomas C. Kinkaid, president of the court, asked if Ingram had delivered an envelope to Deane which might have contained the memorandum. He did not, Ingram replied—not to Deane or any other Congressman. The court recessed its hearings until Sept. 21. Wood said the purpose of the recess was to allow time for some private digging by Investigators for the co\nl. Worth admitted at a House Armed Services Committee hearing last month that he prepared the document. He was promptly suspended as a special assistant to Undersecretary of the Navy Dan A. Kirnball. The memorandum belittled claims the Air Force hnd made as to cap-" abilities of the D-38, its big intercontinental bomber. It also suggested that politics and irregularities were mixed up in the air force decision to concentrate on the B-36 as its prime air weapon. At the House committee's hearings. Worth backed down on most of the statements made in the document. The committee found there Exiles Teaching In Arab Schools 15 Volunteers Put In Charge of 2,100 Refugee Children By Zeln Najall AT Newstailures SUHKNE, Hashemlte Jordan — Fifteen volunteers are in charge of the education of 2,100 children in this Arab refugee camp. They are young Palestinian students who last year fled frcm their homes ahead of the spreading Holy Land War. Now they share the lot of some 800,000 refugee* scattered throughout the Middle East. They are disappointed and discouraged but determined to carry out their ta>k. They try to forget what they have last and the uncertainty oi their future. Typical among these volunteers, is Mrilimaud Tayib, of Nazour, a village near Jaffa. He was preparing to attend a medicine school in England. The war shattered his dreams. He lost his family, his properties and his money. Now he helps saving his little fellow refugees from ignorance. The Impromptu teachers started their work in the winter of 1948-49 and refugees had been assembled at the Jericho camp. Several thous- not far from the Jordan river. Uitcr the United Nations Educational Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) granted some technical assistance and subsidies. The Jerusalem Young Men's Christian Association set up a sports field near the camp.' This was attended by .some 3,600 youngsters. When 1G.COO refugees were transferred to Siihknc. 30 miles north of Amman, earlier this summer, the teachers followed them to operate the UNESCO school. It consists of a group of tents, often blown off by the strong wind that sweeps this barren plateau. Sixty to 90 pupils arc packed In each class. Teaching Is limited to reading, writing and elementary arithmetic. "We need more money," said a Red Cross official. "UNESCO contributes $360 a month which is paid to the teachers—$34 a month each —and small additional sums for purchase of school material. Tills is not enough/ 1 Gift boxes from the 'American Junior Red Cross recently helped to take the refugees' educational program one step ahead. The boxes contained badly needed pens, pencils, copybooks and other school equipment. It is estimated that around half the 800.000 refugees are school age. was nothing in the hints of politics and irregularities.
