United Nations warships roamed the coasts at will, hammering shore batteries and sending carrier based planes deep into Korea in support of ground troops. Many Communist mines were encountered, however. Russian submarines, Caliaghan said, were operating from bases around Vladivostok and to the north. "The weather would be against them operating from these northern bases during much of the year." He said that any submarine force could only keep one third of its strength in- operation. But that one third the Russians have in the Pacific could block sea lines fay prowling outside harbors. "At least at first they would give us trouble." But, he said, "hunter-killer groups of carriers and destroyers are the greatest potential capability against this submarine threat." and Minnesota._JJut in these states, too. the worbV^was the same: More rain needed, and even that wouldn't revive some fields. The government's emergency program is aimed at helping livestock men hang onto their foundation herds. The government has agreed to pay half the cost of shipping hay into the federal disaster areas. The Agriculture Department also will pay a subsidy of 60 cents per hundred* pounds for corn, oats, barley and grain sorghums. The subsidy will go to the dealers, and ranchers can then buy these grains at cut-rate prices, prices somewhat higher than they Steel 78 Chrysler 65%!

Another is that farm spokes• men In some states believe more territory should have been included in the disaster program. In Missouri, President Eisenhower declared 76 counties eligible for relief. Fred Heinkel, president of the Missouri Farmers Assn., said he thought all of the state's 114 counties should have been included. * * * "IF- THIS was the first year of drought it would be different," he said. "But this is the third year and some farmers have exhausted their credit. I don't see how they can dig up the money to pay even $1.50 a bushel for corn." New Mexico ranchers have complained that the feed program is slow in getting started. All of Oklahoma, except for a few scattered spots, is dry. Experts said there is little difference between the 26 counties approved for federal aid and the other 51. The recent rains gave cotton and peanuts a chance to make a fair crop but were too late to do much good, if any, for pastures and feed crops. In Colorado, rancher Melvin Carlson of Johnstown said "the government should have some sort of program to keep cattle on the range, or a flooded market will result." * * * WINTER RANGES in southeastern Wyoming already are nearly grazed off — in mid-summer. W. L. Chapman, state agriculture commissioner, said ranges are browner than two weeks ago ,and "we've not had any relief in appreciable moisture." J. E. Burleson, Farmers Home Administration supervisor for Blanco, Mason and Llano counties in the central Texas hill country, said: "Twenty-two, people have come into my office since Monday inquiring about the hay program Only two of them submitted applications for hay after reading the j requirements. Most of them are disappointed in the limited extent of the program." l as LL e * r fo , r !

House Passes Security Probe Testimony Bill WASHINGTON 13) — The House passed 293-55 yesterday a bill designed to force some witnesses in national security cases to give testimony they could otherwise withhold because of the Fifth Amendment guarantee against self-in- criminaiion. The bill differs considerably both from the recommendations o"f Atty. Gen. Brownell and from a measure of the same subject passed by the Senate last year. But it is the first of the administration's amisubversive proposals to pass both houses in some form. Senate acceptance, regarded as a possibility, would send it on to the White House. Otherwise, Senate-House attempts to compromise their differences would be necessary. The House bill would apply to witnesses in national security cases both in the courts and before congressional committees. A witness who balked at testifying because of "possible self-incrimination would be promised immunity from federal prosecution if: 1. A congressional committee voted to do so by a two-thirds majority, if it gave the attorney general advance notice and if a U. S. district judge approved. 2. The federal prosecutor in a court case applied for and received an immunity grant from a U. S. District Court.

Faubus, explaining why his name had been mentioned in connection with various activities after he says he left the college, declared "I know now . . . that I was made the innocent victim of one of the oldest Communist tricks — that I was used as a respectable front behind which the makers of Commonwealth College could shield their own dubious activities.

And let me say again — I never attended classes, I never enrolled as a student, I never acted as student body president, I never delivered a May Day speech and I never went to a Chat- tannoga, conference or anywhere else as a representative of Commonwealth College." 10.00-16.00.

China Rejects Plane Protest LONDON (5»)--Red China has refused even to accept a second American protest against the shooting down of a British airliner off Hainan last month, diplomatic official*" said today. Three American* were among the 10 persons killed in the attack. The IT. S. State Department disclosed July 29 that the Peiping regime had contemptuously turned down American protest* on both that incident and a lubeequent fighter attack on two American rescue plones in which the attackers were shot down. MCCARTHY (Continued from Page 1) ber. Behind-the-scenes maneuvers te) line it up had been going: on steadily since the Senate voted Monday night to create the committee. The vote ended a bitter debate in the Senate touched off by a resolution by Sen. Flanders (R-Vt) calling for censure of McCarthy. The motion for creation of the committee, offered by GOP leader Knowland, includes a provision that the committee should report before this session of Congress adjourns. There appears to be strong possibility, however, that any report by that time—since congresi- onal leaders are driving for adjournment by next weekend—could not go much further than to say the committee would need more time for its study. 2 or 3 Months Needed Although Knowland and otneri have said they hoped the committee could make a swift investigation and report before the scheduled mid-month adjournment of Congress. Sen. Mundt (R-S.D.) said he doubts such speed will be possible. Mundt said in an interview he thinks "two or three months" will be needed to sift the censure charges unless the committee limits the number of witnesses to be heard. And he advised against that. 406 W.
