"I think both men could contrib-1 investigation of Justice Depart- lite information which might help! ment handling of the Amerasia clear up this situation," Hicken looper told reporters. The Iowa legislator is a member of the Senate foreign relations subcommittee which is Booking into the five-year-old Amerasia magazine episode. The case involved alleged theft during the war of hundreds of secret government documents. A KEY MEMBER of the Democratic-controlled inquiry committee said there is little likelihood City Written I]j) In Two Magaz Brownsville has received write- ups in recent issues of two magazines--one with world-wide circulation and the other a Mexican publication. The Mexican magazine, Im- pacto, has a 20-page spread of pictures and stories on Brownsville industry, fishing, Charro Days, international bridges, citrus growing, airport, churches, and Texas Southmost College. of the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce, said Invpacto has a circulation of about 35,000 all over Mexico. Purpose of the article was to diroct potential' tourist trade from Mexico to the| United States through Brownsville, Mr. Longnecker said- Foreign Service, a magazine published monthly by the U. S. Department of State, recently had An aerial photo of Matamoros and Brownsville as its cover page. The insue was devoted to Mexico, and had an article on the sister cities of Brownsville and Matamoros. Credit for information included in the story was given to Pete J. Raineri, American vice-consul to Matamoros. Mr. Longnecker said this ie the ·«cond magazine with world-wide circulation that has recently car- Tied an. article on this area.

Senate Democratic Leader Lucas of Illinois has said he is ppposad to starting a new Amerasia inquiry with one already underway. Senator Taft of Ohio, chairman of the GOP policy unit, declined to predict whether that group would take a stand regarding the proposal of his Republican colleagues. BOTH CLARK and Hoover were mentioned in excerpts made pub j lie last weekend from, the personal ! papers of the late James V. For- j rcstal, who was secretary of the navy when the Amerasia case broke in 1945. Forrestal's papers disclosed that he intervened in the case to make sure President Truman was fully informed regarding the international significance of the situation. Forrestal wrote that quick arrests in the case might greatly embarrass his country's relations with Russia at the United Nations charter conference in San Francisco. He also \vrote that he had suggested to FBI Director Hoover that Hoover have Tom Clark then chief of the Justice Depart ment's criminal division (and later attorney general), "see that the President is in full information of all the facts in the matter a well as their implications." HOOVER HAS said that Forres tal at no time indicated any desire to have the Amerasia case halted Forrestal's only interest, Hoover said in an interview last Sunday was to make sure Mr. Truman was fully informed. Mr. Truman ordered full steam ahead in the case a few days afte the Forrestal diary entry on Maj 28, 1945. Six persons were arrest ed on June 6 of that year. In suggesting that both Clark and Hoover be invited to testify Hickenlooper said the committee ought to have their first-hand ver siorx of just what happened. Hickenlooper also aaid Clark ought to be questioned about the prosecution phases of the case anc Hoover about the investigative phases. THE INQUIRY group reported ly was told last month by Assist ant Attorney General James M Mclncrney that Clark i* imabl to recall whether he was the au thor of a Justice Department or der telling the FBI to delay th Amerasia arrests. The committee already has re ng the agency's role in the case. Attorney General McGrath last veek cold-shouldered a proposal y Senator Knowland (R-Calif) hat Hoover go before an informal public ^j£ssion of the Senate to be questioned about the Amerasia :ase. Some lawmakers have charged here was a Justice Department 'whitewash" in prosecution of the case. The department has deplied hat its court case virtually col- apsed when one of the defendants earned the evidence had been ob- .ained without search warrants.
