THE OTTAWA HERALD "Thuraday. Feb. 21, IMS - .,..,- •• By Man He Accused Senator Is Accused Of Racial Prejudice WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Adam Clayton Powell has accused Sen. John J. Williams of racial bias. But Williams says how government money is spent—not race —is the issue in his attack on the Negro congressman. Powell accused Williams, R- Del., at a news conference Wednesday of following "the Hitler concept" in purchasing property that the New York Democrat said is under a restriction limiting resale to "Aryans." Asked if he felt there was a racial motive to Williams' criticism, Powell declared emphatically, "yes." The senator swung back at Powell Wednesday night. "I never have and never will refer to any man's race, religion or nationality in discussing a case on the Senate floor or off it," Williams told a newsman. "I do intend to see that anyone, whether a member of Congress or not, gives a proper accounting of how government money is spent,' he said. "We're going to keep right on the issue and will not be diverted." In his session with newsmen, Powell said Williams has voted consistently against civil rights. Brags On Soviet Nuclear Weapons MOSCOW (AP)—A Soviet rocket commander has claimed the Sov- viet Union has missiles armed with 1W megaton nuclear warheads while the biggest the United States has are only seven megatons. A megaton is a force equal to the explosive power of one million tons of TNT. He also distributed an excerpt from a property deed to a house Powell said Williams bought in 1952 in Rehobeth Beach, Del. According to the except, the deed contained a restriction against the sale Or leasing of the property in 1952, still lives there the Aryan (Nordic) race." Reached Wednesday night at his home, Williams said he bought the pro erty in 1952, still lives there and has no intention of leaving. He said he has never examined the deed and has no idea if it contains a restriction. But even if it does, Williams said, it would have no effect because the Supreme Court has outlawed such provisions. The battle began Feb. 5 when Williams charged in a Senate speech that the government was "shoveling out" money for activities sponsored or promoted by Powell. He also accused Powell of income tax delinquency and criticized him for using State Department funds for a European trip last summer with two women staff members. Powell, who was in Puerto Rico when Williams leveled his blast, fired back Wednesday before a battery of newsmen. He said a Williams charge that the Housing and Home Finance Administration had lent Powell or groups associated with him $10.8 million for three housing projects was incorrect. The HHFA deals in mortage insurance, not in loans, Powell said, and the transactions Williams referred to were handled by a foundation he started in honor of his father. He said he got out of the foundation a year ago. "I have always paid my taxes promptly," said Powell. The years in question, he said, are the subject of pending court action and it cannot be determined what, if anything, he owes until the court decides. As for last summer's trip—according to Williams a "European vacation for Mr, Powell and two lady friends where he attended all the nights spots of the European capitals"—Powell said the women with him were staff members of his House Education Committee. Powell said he used State Department counterpart funds as do other members of Congress. New Melon For Kansas MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP)-A watermelon variety described as resistant to the crop's most serious diseases is being released by the Kansas agricultural experiment station, Dr. C. Peairs Wilson, director of the station, has announced. The seed has been distributed to commercial melon seed producers for increase this year and is expected to be available to commercial growers in 1964. The variety has been named "Crimson Sweet" by Dr. Charles V. Hall of the Kansas State University horticulture staff, who was the plant breeder in charge of its development. The new variety is resistant to anthrocnose and fusarium wilt, diseases which in some years in Kansas have caused a two-thirds crop loss to susceptible varieties. It is a round melon averaging 25 pounds and is light green with dark green stripes.
