PAGE KX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 1950 Y!M Bvdcni — McCarthy Finds Self In Hole in Red Hunt • 'BT'JMIMI Mirlow ! WASHINGTON, April 18. W)—A man who has had a deeply troubled inner life will fake the witness stand here Thursday. He Is Louis Budenz, W, a former Communist. :'. Senator McCarthy. Wisconsin Republican,' has said Buctenz will testify that Owen Lattimore was known to him to be a Communist. Lattbnore, • an expert on Asia, has been a consultant of the State Department on occasion. Budeni will appear before the Senate committee which is Investigating McCarthy's charges that the State Department has hired Communists. When he first made them. McCarthy's charges were very •weeping. Since then, he's narrowed them down. Nine people he named as pro- Communist-s or poor security f isks not only denied his accusations but most of them denounced McCarthy. "To Stand or Fall" Finally. McCarthy said his whole case would stand or fall on what he had to say about Latlimorc. At first. McCarthy called Lattimore the "top Soviet espionage agent" in this coi'-'-y. .Lattimore, ' Appearing before the committee, denied McCarthy's charges and challenged him to make the charges publicly where he could be sued instead of in the safety and Immunity of the Senate. Since then McCarthy has spoken publicly of Lattimore but has never called him a Communist or a spy. He has said since the challenge that Lattlmore's thinking- parallels that of the Russians. . Budenz has previously testified lor the government when It tried 11 top Communist Party officials. They were'convicted. . Budenz Keeps Mum Budenz has kept mum about what he'll say Thursday. ; ; Budenz had been In a good position to know a great deal about Communists and their doings. He was one of them for 10 years. Bii- ideng was raised as a Catholic In the mid-west but later broke with the church and WRS Dx-communi- c&ted for marrying a divorced woman. .'•''. • . H* became active In organized labor and remained In that for years. The publishers of his book— "This Is My Story"—say he was arrested 21 times In labor disputes and acquitted 21 times. In 1935 he Joined the Communist Party, rose to be a member of its national committee, and from 1940 until 1945 was editor of the party's paper, the "Daily Worker." On Oct. 10, 1945—ten years after jolnliiB—Budenz quit the party and his job and went back Into the Catholic Church, a step he had been planning for two years. The excommunication ban on him was lifted. Soon he wrote the story of his life, "This Is My Story." That book opens on a very religious note, for Budenz dedicates it to "Mary Immaculate, patroness of our beloved land." "A Sense of Peace" Deep in the book, writing of his decislon'to get out of the party and back Into [he church, Budenz said he "experienced a sense of peace such as I had not enjoyed for three stormy decades." Budcna' testimony probably will be of much Importance to the whole McCarthy case for over the weekend criticism of McCarthy sprouted out in different places. Tlie Catholic Review, official organ of the Archdiocese of Washington and Baltimore, called on McCarthy to "put up or shut up," to "cut out the talk and come up with facts." Senator Tydings. Maryland Democrat and chairman of th, committee investigating McCarthy's accusations, said the latter had offered no proof to back up his charges. And even one of McCarthy's fellow Republicans. Senator Bridges of New Hampshire, said McCarthy "went too far" In the extent of his charges although Bridges called the Wisconsin senator a "great American."
