f AC* TWKLV* BLYTHEVl'LLK, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Berkley Spurns Investigations Vttp Reminds Senate That it Doesn't Comprise Grand Jury WASHINGTON. June 19. W> — Vice President Barkloy today tartly reminded the Senate Hint it Is not a grand jury and said he doubted the propriety of any Senate Investigation of public officials that might result In an Impeachment. Hartley made his comments in referring to the judiciary committee & resolution signed hy 21 Re- - - --,• rmblicnn senators demanding a sep- " onal - 'he Senate wanted a six- arate Investigation of the Justice Department's handling of the 1945 Amerasla secret, documents case. Barkley sent the resolution, introduced by Senator Oapehart (U- Ind) for himself and 20 others, lo the judiciary committee which would be authorized to conduct Ihe Inquiry. Chairman McCarran (D-Nev) al ready has turned down a persona reqvest made by Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) for such a probe.

Report I'ossibilllv Today's Senate exchange came on the heels of a statement from Attorney General McGrnth that the Justice Department will decide soon whether to make public a full report on the Amerasia matter as recommended by a federal grand Jury. McGrath's comment to a reporter came after a weekend bristling with new developments involving the charges of Senator McCarthy (R- WuO that the State Department harbors Communists and Communist sympathizers. A key part of those charges. McCarthy has said, concerns the flve- • year-old episode In which six persons were arrested after the FBI had found hundreds of secret government documents In the offices of the now delunct magazine Amer- asia.

SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 19. (/P)t> —The giant Caroline Mars ended a 2,f!0fl-mile flight from Hawaii yesterday with 144 men aboard. Nevei before, the Navy said, had so many been carried so far non-stop in one aircraft. A little later, R sister flying boat —the Hawaii Mars—settled down on San Diego bay with 105 men. Stic had taken off two hours and five minutes before [he Caroline Saturday, flown 2,400 miles to Alamcda. Calif., added 5,000 pounds of cargo and Ihen hopped on here. In these two four-engincd craft, which spread their wings 200 feet, the Navy had ferried nn f-ntire company of Marine reservists in full combat kit from the Islands for training exercises at nearby Camp Pcndlcton. The lift made by the Caroline— which has more powerful engines than the other Mars flying boats--wasn't a world record for passengers. That was made by the Marshall Mars last year. She carried 308 men —but on the short 450-mile hop from Alamcrta to San Dlesjo. The Caroline's effort cleanly topped the Hawaii Mars' old Hawaii- California mark made In 1945 witli 118 tin 1 !! aboard. Lt. William Nelson of Augusta Kan., brought the Caroline over in H hours 18 minutes in R flight he described as routine: "The takeoff was .smooth. The ride was smooth. The landing was smooth." The Marines aboard the Caroline weren't too happy f o ,. „ while, however. They, were jammed into lift plane's lower deck before the takeoff, it was hot and stuffy. After the craft was airborne, the upper "smoking" deck was opened Some slept through the night on mattresses spread on the decks. The Hawaii Mars was commanded by Lt. William Barllcy of Calhoun, ill.

The British government has been legotiating for Ihe release of Sanders, who was sentenced to 13 years No 'lit*r American officials have denied that any deal was made to swap Vogeler for Valentin Oubitchev, Soviet United Nations employe, convicted with Judith ( Coplon in New York of espionage. Gubilchev was given a suspended sentence and sent home. Observers Interpreted the move then as a bid for similar treatment for Vogeler. T.f Vogeler were released, he prob- ibly would be escorted lo the Aus- .rinn Hmmarmn border. American officers probably would meet him there and bring him to his home in Vienna. Both Vogeler and Sanders confessed in court that they had turned Hungarian economic secrets over lo American Intelligence services, that they had sabotaged I. T. and T.'s Hungarian subsidiary, Standard Electric, and sabotaged delivery of equipment from Hungary to Sor iet Russia. Their .confessions followed a pattern which had been repeated frequently in Irials behind the Iron Curtain. The u. S.
