TUESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARIU COURIER NEW? PAGE FIV1 Fulbright Won't Object to Dropping Obituary Some of Charges Against McCarthy WASHINGTON (AP) By JACK BELL Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark) said today he would not object to discarding some accusations against Sen. McCarthy so long as the Senate gets a chance to vote on whether the Wisconsin Republican has shown "disregard for the whole orderly conduct of government." A six-member Senate committee decided yesterday to give McCarthy the right to cross-examine witnesses in public hearings to begin Aug. 30 on accusations that his conduct has tended to bring the Senate into disrepute and merits formal censure. Members said the special group, headed by Sen. Watkins (R-Utah), is aiming at a 10-day hearing and a mid-September report. The Senate might recon- sne Oct. 1 to act on such a report. Court-Like Trial Watkins said the group, composed of three Republicans and three Democrats, hopes to conduct its hearings much as a court trial, with evidence limited to that which the committee holds is relevant and most hearsay testimony barred. "The testimony will have to be relevant," Watkins said. "It will have to be given by competent witnesses. We 'ntend to conduct the hearings as a judicial inquiry." Fulbright, who filed 6 of the 46 overlapping charges against McCarthy, said in an interview he doesn't want to "bog the committee down" in lengthy hearings. The accusations, made by Fulbright and Senators Flanders (R- Vt) and Morse (Ind-Ore) during Senate debate on Flanders' move to censure McCarthy, cover a wide range of conduct allegedly unbecoming in a senator. They include a number dealing with the Wisconsin senator's controversial Red- hunting methods. Fulbright said he would be satisfied if some of them were consolidated, and he added: ''I think the issue is whether McCarthy has shown irresponsibility and heedlessness of established custom in his conduct. The committee should concentrate on taking evidence of his disregard for the whole orderly conduct of government and the Senate should vote on that issue." Three Lawyers Although some committee members have indicated they will vote against considering- it, Fulbright said he is unwilling to drop a charge that McCarthy did not give "comparable value" for a $10,000 fee he received from Lustron Corp. for writing a housing pamphlet. Whether the special committee would delve into the Lustron case or any other specific charge appeared to depend on the recommendations of a corps of three lawyer researchers. Committee members said the lawyers, to be named fay Watkins with daily pay at the rate of 511,800 a year, will be asked to sift the charges to find which were substantial and grounds for censure if proved. One committee member, declining to be quoted by name, said the group had decided that "quite a number of the charges, even if true, would not be grounds for censure." He declined to single out DULLES (Continued from Page 1) Prince Wan of Thailand for the post of president of the forthcoming fall session of the United Nations General Assembly. Dulles said former Dutch Foreign Minister Eelco Van Kleffens would make an excellent president but. that the United States would vote for Wan because he has shown top ability in handling Far Eastern problems which may dominate the assembly's meeting. In talking about the President's atomic proposal, Dulles declined to reveal any of the details of the confidential talks which have been going on with the Russians for nearly seven months. President Eisenhower invited reporters at his last news conference to ask Dulles about this problem but Dulles said today that he did not feel free to make the information public since there was an agreement with Russia to keep details secret. Other members said it was the general determination of the group to avoid what some of them described as the "circus atmosphere" of the recent televised hearings into the McCarthy-Army controversy. The committee voted unanimously against live or recorded television or radio at hearings, Watkins said, but newsmen and spectators will be admitted. Watkins said either McCarthy or his attorney, but not both, will be permitted to cross-examine witnesses. But Watkins said the cross- examination must bear directly on the direct testimony. FARM (Continued from Page 1) last-ditch fight. He and Senators Mundt (R-SD), Russell (D-Ga), and Eastland CD- Miss) offered a new amendment which Young said would> require 90 per cent supports on the five basic crops "if the flexible supports fail to get rid of our surpluses and farmers vote for acreage and marketing controls." Senators Aiken and Holland (D- Fla) said they would oppose this move. "It's just the 90 per cent supports all over again that got us into our present surplus troubles," Aiken said. Before the uey vote on 82V2-90 per cent supports, Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) tried to push supports up instead'of down by offering a 90100 per cent amendment on the five basic crops. It was beaten 8112. Senator- Schoeppel (R-Kan) and Dworshak (R-Idaho Hhen offered the slightly higher House range of 82'/2-90 per cent. It carried 49-44 with 37 Republicans and 12 Democrats for it while 10 Republicans, 33 Democrats and 1 Independent voted "no." On the dairy products test, the action was similar. Several dairy state senators offered the house-approved proposal to require price supports at 80 per cent of parity, it was beaten 48-44. Then Aiken proposed to retain 75 per cent supports and won 49-43. His amendment contains one new feature: authority for the government to support prices of milk and butterfat. Aiken said it may take a year to dispose of some 500 million dollars worth of surplus butter, cheese and dried milk now piled up in government storage but that thereafter dairy price supports could move up again.

Of the remaining half, 25 per cent have trouble but finally achieve sobriety while the last fourth were not ready for the program and do not make it. Members of AA say they can not give aid to people who do not want it. Therefore, the mental attitude of the alcoholic coming into the AA program is important. To observe it's eighth birthday, the Blytheville AA group is planning an all-day meeting Aug. 15 at the Junior Chamber of Commerce building. Guest speakers have been invited from distant cities to give their views on the alcoholic problem. Beginning at 9 ajn., the meeting will last until 4 p.m. -The public is invited to this meeting to become acquainted with the workings of the program.

"The only requirement for membership is an honest desire to stop drinking. AA has no dues or fees. It- is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics .organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy neither endorses nor opposes any causes. "Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety." The AA movement had it's beginning when Bill W., after a long and disastrous drinking career, was introduced to the Oxford Group, an organization emphasizing spiritual values in daily living, in 1934 through another alcoholic who was a childhood friend. * * • DURING A business trip to Akron, Bill met another alcoholic, Dr. Bob S., who helped him check the impulse to drink when the business venture failed. At that time the two men recognized that work with other alcoholics was essential to the preservation of their own sobriety. Together they went to an Akron hospital where their example and experience led to the recovery of another alcoholic. By the summer of 1936, a group of five men were meeting in the kitchen of one of the members to share their experiences and sobriety. The original relationship with the Oxford Group ended in 1937, which marked the start of a new group working solely for the recovery of alcoholics. At the end of that year, the recovered alcoholics and some non-alcoholics began studying plans for the development of a new organization and how to bring it to the attention of those who sought help. A year later an unincorporated, nonprofit agency known as The Alcoholic Foundation was formed under the laws of New York State. At that time there were only, about 60 recovered alcoholics in the Akron, Cleveland and New York area. TO RAISE money for the foundation functions it was decided that they would publish a book, "Alcoholics Anonymous," which gave the organization its present name.

"Well, light-colored concrete reflects light, doesn't absorb it ! ; like dark-colored pavement. At night you see the road edge clearly. You see curves, animals, pedestrians and other things sooner, get more time to slow down or stop. Haven't you noticed that?" I sure had. What this man was telling me made sense; "Another thing," he said, "if you have to stop fast you can on concrete. Slam on the brakes and your tires got a tight grip on its gritty surface. That enables you to stop in a hurry without skidding, even though it may be raining!" I'd noticed that too. As I drove on I felt these were things every driver should know about roads.

But it does seek, said Dr. Visser 't Kooft, "to be an instrument of the Holy Spirit for healing our divisions." Except for the Roman Catholic, nearly every major church will be represented. Although Roman Catholic churchmen have attended some previous meetings of World Council groups t none will be present at Evanstbn under a ruling by Sam- j uei Cardinal Stritch of the Chicago archdiocese. There have, however, been articles and studies by Roman Catholic leaders on the assembly's theme. Said an American Catholic publication.

POLITICS Flood Victims Aided An initial distribution of $11,500 worth of CARE packages was among the first relief supplies to reach victims of the Danube floods in Austria and Germany, it was reported by Pleas Yarbro of the Railway Express Agency who serves as voluntary CARE representative in this area. which apeared to be unwanted, the organization finally got started. This was brought about by the publication of several stories about the organization by newspapers and national magazines. By 1940, AA was receiving national attention and backing from such men as John D. Rockefeller. Why is there a need for an organization of this type? Why cannot another organization or group do the same thing? In developing the answers to these questions, tomorrow's article in this series will be on— "What Is An Alcoholic?" Paint Closeout Mam?

Craighead Increased Craighead County, Cherry's bailiwick, is expected to approach the record it set in the 1952 election when Cherry was elected governor. Jonesboro reported 2,418 votes cast in 20 of 34 precincts—an increase of 503 over a similar count two weeks ago. That early count also was greater than the 1952 early votes. The temperature was reported slightly cooler at most Arkansas cities, a factor that is believed to have influenced the heavy vote. Other cities reporting strong turnouts were Camden in Ouachita County; Conway, Faulkner County: Stuttgart, Arkansas County; Fort Smith, Sebastion County; and Hope, Hempstead County. Incumbent Cherry and Faubus, who is challenging the governor for a second term Democratic nomination, made their final appeals for votes last night. Today they planned to vote at their respective home towns — Cherry at Jonesboro and Faubus at Huntsville—and then return to Little Rock headquarters to await tonight's tally of the ballots which will decide who is to be governor for the two years beginning next January. Today's voting technically settled only the Democratic nomination, but in Arkansas that's the equivalent of election,. Estimates of today's probable vote total ranged as high as 400,000 out of 532,000 eligible poll tax holders. Tie Arkansas record is 391,584 yotes cast in the 1952 presidential election.
