PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JULY 18, SenateGroup Votes to End U.S.Red H unt Sen. M'Corthy Rebuked; Colled Fraud, Hoax BY MARVIN AKROWSMITH WASHINGTON, July 18. (AP) — The Senate Foreign Relations Coin- mitt** voted 11 to 0 today to end the Investigation of Republican Senator McCarthy's Comimmfsts In government charges. The action came a tier the Democratic majority of a foreign relations subcommittee, in a report, hart branded McCarthy's accusations "a fraud and a hoax." The full committee, nl what was described as one of the stormiest sessions the group ever held, also voted 9 to 2 to send the report of the subcommittee majority to the Senate. Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of the full committee told a news conference the question of whether the report of the Democratic majority of the subcommittee should be approved by the mil committee was not. raised. "The committee neither approved nor disapproved the report," Connally declared, He grhmed and added: "We want to go home by Christmas"—an allusion to the highly controversial nature of the report. There are 13 members of the committee — eight Democrats and five Republicans, Republican Senators Wiley (\Vis) nnd Vandenberg (Mich) were absent . "A fraud and a hoax"—that's the ocrats on the committee—senators Tydlngs (Md), Green <RI) and McMahon (Conn)—asserts that: McCarthy used, "the totalitarian technique of the big lie" In waging "perhaps the most nefarious campaign of half-truths and untruths In the history of this republic." McCarthy retorted that the report of the Democrats Is. "gig an tic In Its fraud and deep In, Its deceit." The Wisconsin -senator added: Signal To Traitors "It Is a signal to the traitors, Communists and fellow travellers In our government that they need have no fear of exposure from this administration. "The most loynl stooges of the Kremlin could not have done a better job of giving a clean bill of health to Stalin's fifth column in this country." The Democrats 1 report, issued last night, was generally regarded at the capitol as one of the most scathing condemnations of a senator ever made by colleagues. It accused McCarthy of having lied repeatedly. - The majority said McCarthy failed to prove any of his basic allegations, which were fired nt acores of Individuals in attacks directed at the State Department. McCarthy accused the department of harboring a lot of Communists, Red sympathizers, and people who were security risks on other grounds. . Republican Senator Lodge of Massachusetts got out a minority report saying the Inquiry Into Mc- Carflry's charges "must be set down as superficial nnd Inconclusive." Ho Bald there remained "a tangle of loose threads" and "leads which were nob followed up." Lodge also declared the Lone of the investigation, as set by the Democrats, too frequently lacked Impartiality," and the atmosphere "too often Was one of trying to hang someone rather than to ascertain the truth," The other Republican on the committee, Senator Hlckenlooper of Iowa, filed no report but said he is In genera] nccord with Lodge's Ideas, "particularly the emphasis on the complete inadequacy of the Inquiry." Hope Remains For 3 Trapped In Lead Mine LARK, Utah, July 18.

The Communists were believed reluctant to advance far without support from the Russian- made armor which has led every Red drive down the peninsula. A lull fell over the main battle sector and rover the central sector just to (he east, where South Korean troops dug in al defensive ,»•)- sitlons. Heavy Toll Taken American defenses, particularly planes, were taking a heavy toll of Communists. Gen. McArlhur's headquarters estimated Red casualties to date at 11,000. but said accurate figures were impossible. The airmen bagged 21 tanks and 143 trucks Monday. Thev struck hard again today. Light "bombers strafed Communist supply lines all the way back to Seoul. B-29 super- forts blasled railyards at strategic points and hit Seoul's Kimpo Airfield. The North K/irean Pyongyang radio said more thnn 2.500 Americans were killed and more than 100 captured in fighting south of the Kum River up to G p.m. Monday, Tokyo time. Reports from U. S. Eighth Army headquarters In Korea indicated, however, u. S. casualties were light in the last 48 hours while the enemy suffered heavily trying to crack the defenses north of Tacjon. Maj. Gen. William P. Dean, commander of the 24th Infantry, who personally led an infantry column against a Red roadblock in Saturday's heavy fighting, returned to American No. 4 Arrested as Spy FBI Links New York Engineer to Fuchs 'Cloak and Dagger 7 NEW YORK, July 18. f/T*>—The fourth American allegedly linked to lUi.ssia's Klaus Fuctis atom -spy ring was seized at his home here last night by the FIH. He is 32-year-old Julius Rosenberg— a ha Id ing. bespectacled en- mincer, married and father of L\vo children. The Department or Justice charged him with conspiracy io commit espionage, and said lie had recruited for a cloak-and-dagger Soviet spy apparatus thnt penetrated America's atomic secrets. ; He was arraigned and held behind ban; In lien of $100,000 bnit for a federal court hearing on July 31. His attorney insisted he was Innocent. Important Link "Rosenberg is another imjJorLnnl link in Die Soviet espionage upara- tu.s/' FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said in Washington, where the tu- \Vij.s announced. In the past two months the government, has arrested three oilier Americans it says were itnplocat- L-d in the spy ring headed by Dr. Klaus Fuchs. the German-born Communist sympathizer who worked his way to the top of Britain's atomic program, Fuchs Services Term Fnehs confessed iintf now Is serving H. long prison term, in England. The three Americans seized us :i result of Fuchs' disclosure ^'cre Harry Gold, a Philadelphia biochemist; Alfred Dean Slack, a scientist, of, N. Y., and David Grecnglass, a New York machinist and former U- S. Army sergeant. All were charged' with wartime espionage - a charge than can mean the death penalty. The FBI announcement said the American-horn Rosenberg's part in the ring was the recruiting of Greenglass—then .stationed at the atomic bomb laboratories at Los Alamos, N. M.,—to work with Gold. Fictional Spy Drama ..Like n character In a fictional spy drama, Rosenberg gave Greenglass an oddly cut lop from a jtilo box to be matched with the other half as a recognition signal with Gold, the FBI siud. As A result, Grecnglass turned over bomb data to both Gold and Rosenberg in 1945, the agency said. Obituaries Former Resident Dies at Bay, Ark.
