fHtJRSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (AMty COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Sen. Watkins, Cool Attitude Distinguish McCarthy Probe Sen. Watkins cut him By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. McCarthy said, "I felt that . . short. "Let's not get into what you felt," said Watkins. In a sentence Watkins pointed up the difference between last spring's televised McCarthy-Army hearings and the present untelevised hearings by a Senate committee on demands that McCarthy be censured for his official conduct. The Wisconsin Republican is in an icebox. Washington has been sweating in a savage burst of summer. But the caucus room, where the present hearings are held, is cold. It's not the temperature. It's the attitude. The committee of six senators, sitting across a long table from McCarthy, look at him as coolly and impassively as if he were a stranger. They do not appear hostile. They seem impersonal. It apparently., has been enough to chill McCarthy. Chairman Watkins, dignified, white-haired Utah Republican and onetime judge, said repeatedly before these hearings began he would conduct them like an examination in a courtroom. Only One Try McCarthy tried once on Watkins what he did so many times successfully to Sen. Mundt (R-SD), PEACHY MEAL—A grasshopper munches on a peach-tree leaf as stripped peach pits still hang on the branch on a farm in Columbia. Mo. Hordes of grasshoppers devoured crops of drought-stricken corn and wheat along with the fruit in / this area. chairman of the McCarthy-Army hearings: he tried to interrupt. Watkins banged him into silence with his gavel. McCarthy hasn't tried it again. Since he emerged into national prominence four years ago, McCarthy has been the center of an emotional thunderstorm. The best illustration is the intense feeling he has aroused in friend and foe. In the hearings on his fight with the Army, -McCarthy interrupted as he pleased, made speeches, new charges, fresh attacks and occasionally produced a sensation. Emotion was the steady thread through those rough - and-tumble days. And upon occasion in those hearings McCarthy's voice vibrated with emotion. That kind of voice in the new hearings would seem out of place. Watkins made it clear his committee wanted facts and evidence brought in and emotion and personal feelings checked outside. For the first week these hearings were enormously dull as the committee attorney droned evidence from past proceedings into the record. Yesterday for the first time McCarthy took the stand in his own LandingMishap PHILADELPHIA' L?) — Twenty- two passengers and three crew members escaped injury late yesterday when a twin-engine Trans- World Airlines plane nosed over while attempting a landing at International Airport. The plane, bound from New York to Columbus, Ohio, clipped a six-foot steel fence at the edge of the runway while making its approach. The nose wheel of the plane buckled when the plane touched down and nosed along the runway and the soft turf for about 250 feet. When it came to rest, Capt. A. V. Stahl, 39, co-pilot Roy Ward, 25, and Stewardess Dolores Martin, 24, also of New York evacuated the passengers through the door in the pilot's compartment. Ten-year-old Nicholas Ruffin of Pittsburgh, one of the passengers, said later: "It was just like in the movies and on television. The only thing I'm mad about is that I lost a model airplane my daddy bought me in New York after we got out. of the plane." | defense. The television audience which watched him last spring would have been astpnished at the difference: the low voice, the ''yes, sir" and "no, sir," the subdued voice, the lack of protest at interruptions. Others, Too It isn't Watkins alone who insisted that McCarthy keep personal feelings .out of the hearings. Other committee members rapped him too, if gently. At one point in his testimony yesterday, when McCarthy began drawing conclusions from what he had just said, Sen. Ervin (D-NC) broke in. He told McCarthy: "'Let us draw our own conclusions." Again when McCarthy drew conclusions, which has been a regular practice with him, Sen. Case (R- SD) cut in with: "Let's get the evidence and let the committee draw the conclusions." But the coldness of these hearings isn't directed at McCarthy alone. It pervades the caucus room and extends to the members of the committee too in their relations with one another. When Case tried to interrupt McCarthy's lawyer, Edward B. Williams, Watkins, icily polite to everyone, stopped him in mid- flight. "Mr. Case," he said, "will you wait a moment until Mr. Williams has finished?" Case said he would, and did. DYESS NEWS Mrs. J. E.
