TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 14, 1954 BLYTHETltLI COTOIER PAOB THREI McCarthy Censure Proceeding in Brief WASHINGTON (AP) — Here is a brief summary of the censure proceeding aimed at Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis). as it enters a new phase: The Senate voted 75-12 on Aug. 2 to create a special bipartisan committee to consider a resolution offered by Sen. Flanders (R-Vt). Flanders proposed that the Senate censure McCarthy on grounds that his official conduct "is unbecoming (a senator), is contrary to senatorial traditions and tends to bring the Senate into disrepute." Also referred to the committee were 46 specific accusations, partially overlapping, filed by Flanders and Sens. Fulbright (D-Ark) and Morse (Ind-Ore), in support of the censure resolution. Members of the committee are Sens. Watkins (Utah), Case (SD), Carlson (Kan), all Republicans, Edwin C. Johnson (Colo), Stennis (Miss) and Ervin (NO all Democrats. Watkins is chairman. Hearings opened Aug. 31, under rules designed to parallel those of federal courts. They, continued for nine days, ending late yesterday. McCarthy was the principal witness, testifying for parts of three days! He entered denials Of the charges against him, or said that he had full justification for acts for which it was proposed to censure him. Most of the evidence in support of .the main charges was not presented by witnesses, but was read into the record from previous proceedings. Five Categories For purposes of the hearings, the committee singled out a num- no announcement has been made as to those not covered in the five categories. The committee goes behind closed doors today to write a report which Watkins says may or may not contain specific recommendations to the Senate. Party leaders are empowered to recall "the Senate into session when the report has been completed, for a decision on what to do about the censure resolution. Censure is the most drastic penalty the Senate may inflict, short of expulsion, but it involves no specific sanctions such -as loss of committee chairmanships or seniority. into five, categories. They embrace allegations that McCarthy (1) showed contempt of a Senate subcommittee by refusing to answer questions about his . financial affairs and other matters in. 1951-52; (2) encouraged federal employes to violate the law and their oaths of office by ; giving him data the White House seeks to keep secret; (3) may have violated the law in his handling of secret FBI material; (4) abused Senate colleagues; and (5) abused Brig. Gen. Ralph W. Zwicker at a closed hearing in New York last Feb. 18. Watkins has said the committee will consider all the charges, but Gl' Provide Hospital Beds For Koreans PUSAN, Korea (#>—IT. S. servicemen in this area have contributed more than 5160,000 to provide 460 additional hospital beds for Koreans. Money raised during the five- month drive will build, enlarge or equip seven hospitals, the Army said today. Pusan, a city of more than one million, has only 16 beds in general civilian hospitals. In addition there are 45 beds for children and 30 maternity cases, the Army said. Nothing New Under the Sun- The Bikini is about 2000 years old and there's a mosaic found during archeological excavations at Piazza Armerina, Sicily, td prove it. The suits, shown at left, were worn in gym classes while taking exercises, probably of the reducing va- riety. Modern girls still find the Bikini the right thing to wear along the French Riviera. Pretty Yolande, right, models one of the new two-piece suits, done in eye-catching, sea-green terry cloth. DEADLY — Wearing a few grapes and an abbreviated apron, this shapely French girl does her best to resemble the original Eve. Apparently she did all right for herself, as she was awarded first prize in the contest at Juan Les Pins. Hobby Pays Off STANDISH, Maine <JP) — You just never know when a hobby will pay off in cash. With Mrs. Eleanor Mead it began after she was 80. . She had always knitted, which isn't unusual. But what was unusual was that she never knitted two articles alike. As a result, Mrs. Mead, who'll be 93 in November, has been collecting cash for her original patterns for the last dozen years. National magazines and virtually every publication which carries knitting patterns have published hers. From a yarn company she collected $250 for patterns. f The trouble now is knitting isn't a hobby for Mrs. Mead any more. "When it became a business, I had to have something else as a hobby," she says. Puerto Rican Says Congress Assailants Plotted Attack on Ike So tons. now she is collecting b'ut- Not Enough Chores RICHMOND, Va. iff} — Mrs. Celesta Jane Hall Via says children today suffer because they do not have enough chores to do. Mrs. Via, who has 33 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren, is 90. NEW YORK (St—A Puerto Rican Nationalist has testified that conspirators who , masterminded the shooting in Congress last March 1 also planned an attack on President Eisenhower. The testimony was given by Gonzales Lebron Sotomayor yesterday at the trial of 13 Puerto Ricans charged with seditious conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government by force and violence. The witness is a brother of Dolores Lolita Lebron, -who was seized along with three men after they spattered bullets into the House of Representatives, wounding five congressmen. The four already have been sentenced to terms of 16 to 50 years in prison for the shooting. Miss. J.ebron is one of the 13 now on trial for conspiracy before Federal Judge Lawrence E. Walsh and a jury. The sessions continue today. Another defendant is Julio Pinto Gandia who Lebron Sotomayor said had told him of plans for attacks on Congress, "the Presidency" and on Fernos Isern, resident commissioner for Puerto. Rico. The witness said this was in November, 1953, when Gandia was a Nationalist party leader in New York. Independence Sought The Nationalist party seeks complete independence for Puerto Rico. This aim is opposed by the majority of Puerto Ricans who turned down an offer of independ- ence and voted, to become a commonwealth of the United States. Lebron Sotomayor has pleaded guilty to the charge of seditious conspiracy and testified as a government witness . while being held in $25,000 bail pending sentencing. He described himself as a former chilef of the Chicago junta of the Nationalist party. • . He testified that several months after his talk with Gandia, his sister came to Chicago and told him she had been given a "special mission" which apparently involved the March 1 shooting. She told him to "tell her the position of the party members in Chicago because there was to be instant use of various members in Chicago and New York for attacks • in various places in the i United States and said that it was I stupid but that orders had arrived." His sister returned to New York, the witness added, and two weeks later the shooting occurred in Congress. Acting on orders, the Chicag group obtained four pistols, a car bine and two radio sets for the attack, Lebron Sotomayor said. He added that he himself opposed anj attack within the continental United States. Sweet Port j RICHMOND.

Communist Party Wins New Delay WASHINGTON (£5—The Communist party has won its bid for new arguments, in the light of a 1954 act of Congress directed at it, on a government order that it register as being controlled in Moscow.

They' are required to list, officers and members and disclose their financing. The Communist party has challenged the constitutionality of the act and of the SACB procedure in a case almost certain to go ultimately to the Supreme Court for decision. The local 17. S.

I That law, passed hurriedly justi before Congress adjourned, stated', j that the Communist party should I not be permitted the rights, privileges or immunities of a normal political party. The Court of Appeals called yes-j terday for new arguments, start- j ing Oct. 21. on the case and said j they should cover, among other! things, the effect of the new act on | the case.
