SOU Bl>thevlllo Dally New» Blythevllle Courier Blythevllle Herald Mississippi Valley Hl.YTIIKVILUC, ARKANSAS, WIODNKSDAV, MARCH l;i, I'JIG SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS STALIN IN BLUNT REPLY TO CHURCHILL General Motors Strike Settled Truman Attacks Pauley Enemies; Withdraws Name President Is Beaten in Attempt To Place Oil Man In High Post WASHINGTON, Mar. 13. (UP) President Truman today withdrew Edwin W- Pauley's nomination to be Undersecretary of Navy with a blistering denunciation of thc California oil man's enemies. "You stand before your countrymen after vicious and unwarranted attacks," thc President told Pauley, "with integrity unscathed, with ability unquestioned, with honor unsullied." The Presidents action was taken at thc request of Paulcy, who said he felt that under the circumstances he would not be able to "roil dor the Navy or you the high order of service both deserve:" The withdrawal was effected with an exchange of letters which ended a no-holds-barred battle in the Senate Naval Affairs Committee over the nomination. Tlie battic wns high-lighted by testimony of former Secretary of Interior Harold L. Ickes that Pauley used improper methods us democratic national treasurer to collect campaign funds. He accused Pauley of offering to 'raise $300,000 for thc 1944 campaign if the government would drop efforts to win title to oil tidelands. Pauley flatly denied thc charges, and Ickcs resigned as Interior secretary when Mr. Truman took his nominee's side. Ickes charged thnt the" administration expected him to commit perjury in Pauley's behalf. '-••••'. President Truman in 'withdrawing the nomination said Pauley had teen the victim of "continued misrepresentation" and "prejudice" to i which there was "no immediate antidote." He declnred that Pauley's. defense before the Senate committee had been "valiant and conclusive." Mr. Truman told Pauley that he retained "my faith in your integrity and your ability." He said that the fight that Pnulcy made had strengthened his faith. "The nation will know in more temperate times, thc full worth of your devoted and patriotic services." the president "said in a letter to Paulcy. Mr. Truman told Pauley that he withdrew 1 thc nomination "reluctantly." Tlie long-expected withdrawal was settled at a show-down meeting of the Senate Naval Affairs committee, and Mr. Truman made it final in a letter delivered to the Secretary of the Senate. Chairman David I. Walsh. D. Mass.. i.ssued n statement in behalf of the .senate committee commend- I ing Panlcy "for his patriotic ac- ' tion in requestinc the President to withdraw his name." r , Mr. Truman said he could not avoid "ironical reflections." "Your honor, integrity, fidelity to duty and capacity for public service have been completely established." Mr. Trumnn told Paulcy. In apparent reference to charges made against Pautcy by Harold L. Ickcs. who resigned ns Secretary of Interior during thc Pauley nomination battle, the President wrote: . "You stand before your coiintry- menl after vicious and unwarranted attacks with Integrity unscathed, with ability unquestioned, witli honor unsullied." Pauley's letter to the President, dated today, asked Mr. Truman to withdraw (he nomination because he felt that under circumstances of "curri'iil hysteria" it would be impossible (or him to render either the Navy or Mr. Truman the type of service he said both deserved. Pauley told the President that he would always be grateful for his unwavering confidence. "f stand ready to serve you and my country whenever and where _• ever yon may believe I cnn be of W assistance." ' Walsh's statement for the Senate committee said: "Thc Majority of the committee assure Mr. Paulcy in closing these hearings that they have no doubt regarding his personal integrity and administrative competence. Mr. Paulcy has stated, and we believe him, that he did not seek this position, and also, that he is entitled to have his name cleared of any charge made against him. It should be r.oted that thc record shows that no witness attempted to criticize his ability or integrity while serving in high public office before Pearl Harbor and during his most difficult assignment on German and Japanese reparations. Tlie committee is convinced thnt thc wide divergence of opinion expressed during these proceeding has provoked an uncertainty and confusion In the public mind.
