OP) Senator McCarthy (R-Wis) is urging that senators investigating his Communist charges against the Stale Department subpena Ihc six persons arrested In the Anicrasia magazine case. McCarthy iold reporters 1*> thought their testimony would be an essential part of the inquiry which a Senate foreign relations sub-committee now is conducting Into the five-year-old case. It Involved the alleged theft of secret documents from strategic government war agencies. : Service Not Tndictcr] One of the six arrested, John S Service, has been accused by McCarthy of pro-Communist leanings Tlie veteran State Department career officer, now Tinder-going a new department loyalty investigation, has strongly denied the charge. Service was not indicted after his arrest. McCarthy's accusations against Service were made last March as part of his general charges that the State Department is riddled with Communists and Red sympathizers. They led directly to the committee's decision to look into the case as part of the overall investigation. Jaffe !s Defendant The oilier defendants In the case were Philip Jaffe, editor of the now suspended Kir-Eastern affairs publication; Kate Mitchell, co-editor; Mark Gayn, a free-lance writer; Andrew Roth, naval intelligence officer, and Emmanuel S. Larsen, a States Department employe. Committee aides said they had heard reports that both Gayn and Roth are now In foreign countries. The Amerasfa ease stemmed from a raid conducted In March 1945 on the magazine's New York office by Prank Bielaskl. of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Three months later the FBI raided tile office. Both raids turned up a lot of federal documents. Gayn and Miss Mitchell as well as Service were not Indicted, and the cast against Roth was dropped. . Jaffe was fined $2,500 and Larsen $500. Others Testified William J. Donovan, wartime head of OSS, Archbold Van Beurcn, one of his aides and Bielaski already have testified in the latest Inquiry. So has Robert M. Hitchcock, who handled the Justice Department's prosecution. . Hitchcock, now a Buffalo, N. Y.. attorney, testified last'Friday that the illegal gathering of the documents—there were no search war- prosecu- rants used—scuttled the tion's case. The committee' plans to hear D. M.

In a speech prepared for Memorial Day services at the grave of the wartime President, Lehman said: "Because I knew the man, and his patriotic devotion to his country as well as his boundless devotion to mankind, I am appalled at the endless repetition of the slander that President Roosevelt was naive, or short-sighted or weak or even worse in his dealings with the Russians." The senator described Mr. Roosevelt as "the grand architect of our victory over & savage and ruthless enemy." Lclimnn added: "That this strategy did not succeed in solving the .sic problem of the relations of Soviet Russia with the world is not to President Roosevelt's discredit any more than to the discredit of Winston ChurchlH."
