BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE nvi With Daughters Death, Surrenders TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Attorney James T. Roberts, accused of killing his 6-year-old daughter and leaving her body on a lonely Miami beach, surrendered to police today to await an extradition hearing scheduled for some time after 9:30 a.m. it was expected to be cut and dried proceeding. The 43-year-old Baltimore man told State's Atty. John E. Raine Jr. when he gave himself up shortly after midnight that he was willing to return to Florida. Roberts, accompanied by his wife, law partner and minister, walked into police headquarters about four hours after prosecutor George A. Brautigam of Dade County, Fla., had ordered him arrested. About an hour earlier, he had called Raine and asked if a warrant had been issued for him. Told there was a warrant, he said "ok, I'm coming in." Deputy sheriffs Earl Venno. and. William McCrory of Dade County said they would leave for Florida with Roberts immediately after the hearing. Beaten and Strangled Roberts' 6-year-old daughter, Judith Ann, was stolen from the home of her grandparents in Miami July 7. Her body was found a few hours later in a thicket on Biscayne Bay. She had been beaten and strangled. A grand jury returned a secret indictment in Miami last Friday. Ite' contents remained a secret Until Brautigam made them public here last evening. The two-count indictment accused Roberts, "John Doe and or Mary Roe" of premediatated murder and "an attempt to perpetrate an abominable and detestable crime against nature or kidnap- ing." Brautigam said, "we know there was at least one other person in on this." The Dade County prosecutor arrived here Saturday morning with the indictment. He kept police, city prosecutor Anselm Sodaro, Raine and a legion of newsmen guessing at his intentions. Raine, who had jurisdiction in the case, saw Brautigam. for the first time when he showed up at headquarters last night about 8 o'clock and asked that a fugitive warrant bis issued for Roberts. Promised to Produce An hour later, Raine called Roberts' law partner, Harold J. Hastings Jr., and notified him of the warrant. Hastings had -promised to produce Roberts if he were wanted. Hastings told Raine that Roberts had gone for a car ride and he didn't know where he was. After an hour and 40 minute wait, detective Capt. Carroll V. Simmons issued a general order to pick up Roberts. Roberts was grim and flushed as he walked into the police station clutching Mrs.; Roberts' hand. The Rev Parke Heller, a Baptist mih- istec, drove the Roberts and Hastings here in his car. While he was being booked., a photographer snapped a picture through a window. Roberts whirled around and demanded: "Hey, who in the hell is taking pictures in here. I don't have to put up with that too." Just before he was led away to PEACH — Janet Holden, 19, wears a crown of peaches and nectarines after winning title of Princess at the Los Angeles, Calif., County Fair. She's from Pomona, Calif. a cell, Roberts-turned to a Miami newsman *nd said: "will you come to see me down there? You won't be sorry."

Continued from Page 1 categories which it regarded as representative of the accusations. The committee found McCarthy guilty as charged in category one —that he was contemptuous of the Senate and of the -privileges and elections subcommittee which in 1952 studied his financial operations. The committee's conclusion on ! the initial category was blunt and 'to the point: "It is, therefore, the conclusion of the select committee that the conduct of the junior senator from Wisconsin toward the subcommittee on privileges and elections, towards its members, including the statement concerning Senator Hendrickson acting as a member of the subcommittee, and toward the Senate, was contemptuous, contumacious, and denunciatory, without reason or justification, and was obstructive to legislative processes. '. , "For this conduct, it is our rec- commendation that he be censured' by the Senate." -' The committee devoted 14 pages of its report to a detailed discussion of the Zwicker incident and ended this section with these words "The select committee concludes that the conduct of Sen. McCarthy toward Gen. Zwicker was reprehensible and that for this conduct he should be censured by the Senate." "Conduct Not Proper" The' report said "In the opinion of this select committee, the conduct of Sen. McCarthy toward Gen. Zwicker was not proper. We do not think that this conduct would have been proper in the case of any witness, whether a general or a private citizen, testifying in a similar situation." The committee said McCarthy knew when he called Zwicker before Ms subcommittee .last February that the general had been ordered .to give an. honorable discharge to Ma j. Irving Peress, the dentist tagged by McCarthy as "a Fifth Amendment Communist." The committee added that McCarthy also knew that Zwicker had been advised that a court martial of Peress would not be successful. "Sen. McCarthy knew," the report went on, "that Gen. Zwicker was a loyal and outstanding officer who had devoted his life to the service of his country, that •Gen. Zwicker was strongly opposed to Communists and their activities, that Gen. Zwicker was cooperative and helpful to the staff of the subcommittee in giving information with reference to Maj. Peress, that Gen. Zwicker opposed the Peress promotion- and opposed the giving to him of an honorable discharge, and that he was .testifying under the restrictions of lawful executive orders. Inexcusable Conduct "Under" these circumstances, the conduct of Sen. McCarthy toward Gen. Zwicker in reprimanding and ridiculing him, in holding him up this Relief from Suffering of Colds DOES MORE THAN WORK ON CHEST! Nothing works like Vicks VapoRub to relieve suffering of colds.

"Two vice presidents of Intour- ist will attend our ninth general assembly in London opening tomorrow," the International Union of Travel Organizations says. "This is the first time since the war that the Russians have attended one of our meetings. We believe their interest indicates they have decided to take a step they have hinted at for years." • Intourist is the Soviet Union's state-operated agency set up to handle foreign tourists. Before the war it maintained offices in many countries and yearly brought several thousand foreign travelers to Russia. Many Americans visited Russia through Intourist before the war. The largest groups were school teachers. Intourist did not encourage trips by individuals to Russia,but many of them went anyway. The Soviets once advertised a two- week bear-hunting holiday for about $280. Last January the Communist Daily Worker said negotiations were under way to open Intourist's bureau here but so far nothing has happend. State Sees 1st Color TV LITTLE ROCK (#) — Arkansas received its first color TV over the week end, and officials at KARK- TV in Little Rock were enthusiastic about the reception. The viewing on a 19-inch color set was "Lady in the Dark," an NBC production. to public scorn and contumely and in disclosing the proceedings of the executive session in violation of the rules of his own committee, was inexcusable. , "Sen McCarthy acted as a critic and judge, upon preconceived and prejudicial notions. He did much to destroy the effectiveness and reputation of a witness who was not in any way responsible for the Peress situation, a situation which we do not in any way condone. The blame should have been placed on the shoulders of -those culpable and not attributed publicly to one. who had no-share of the responsibility." The committee denounced as "improper" McCarthy's stand in the dispute over his appeal to government employees to hand him information, regardless of whether it was classified as secret, and accused him of "a high degree^ of irresponsibility" in handling one such document. But it specifically refrained from recommending censure for this. The report said: "The select committee feels compelled to conclude that the conduct of Sen. McCarthy in inviting federal employes to supply him with information, without expressly excluding therefrom classified documents, tends to create a disruption of the orderly and constitutional functioning of the executive and legislative branches of the government, which tends to bring both into disrepute. "Such conduct cannot be condoned and is deemed improper." The committee said, however, it was not recommending censure because it preferred "to give Sen. McCarthy the benefit of whatever doubts and uncertainties may have confused the issue in the past" and because McCarthy is chairman of the Senate Investigations Subcommittee. .

Hopper of Blytheville, Rt. 2, has been awarded a $300 scholarship to George Peabody College, Nashville, Tenn., and -left last week to begin his work there.

He arranged a meeting this afternoon with Mendes-France in an effort to bridge the gap between Washington and Paris thinking on bringing West Germany into the western defense camp. The United States, Britain, Canada, West Germany, Italy, Bel- .gium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg want quick rearming of the West Germans within the 14-nation North Atlantic Treaty Organization, with NATO restrictions on German forces and weapons. Mendes-France, whose political life probably binges on the outcome of the conference, has proposed controlled rearmament of the Germans within a seven-nation European alliance. He wants this European group, and not IfATO. to exercise control over German arms. , The alliance would be based on the Brussels Pact organization, whose members now are Britain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. West Germany and Italy would be brought in. In arranging a preliminary conference with Mendes-France, Dulles wanted the premier to nail down French conditions for German rearmament and an immediate grant of sovereignty to the German federal republic. The U.S. secretary also hoped to dissipate the feeling 'that Washington has been snubbing Paris since the French Assembly's rejection of the European Defense Community. The Kremlin's propaganda machine meanwhile worked overtime trying to cause trouble among the Western allies. Rabbits Too Healthy GREENSBORO, N. C.

Romulo of the Philippines called on the United States today make clear that the international authority it has proposed for peaceful development of atomic energy will be an agency of the United Nations, not an- American organization. Making his nation's policy statement in the ninth UN" General Assembly's general debate, Romulo nailed the Eisenhower - Dulles atoms-for-peace proposal as the "No. 1 item of world statesmanship." But Romulo, a former Assembly president, insisted that the United States should make clear it will not bypass the U.N. in the string up of the international agency to supervise the plan's operation. The Philippine delegate also called on the United States "to tell the assembly how much nuclear material it is ready to contribute and what funds it is willing to allot to finance the international pool."

Manser, My Drinking Problem and How AA Works I have had 30 years of continuous drinking. I had many times tried to quit. I had made promises to myself and, others I would sober up—made with good intentions—but always I returned to the continuous drinking again. In those 30 years I was resentful toward all people who came between me and my drinking. I could hate with ease, knowing I was not justified in doing so, but would do it anyway. I lived in a little world all my own—full of self pity, always putting myself first with no concern for anyone else's feeling. Over the years I watched myself slowly change from one extreme to another. Doing the things I once said I would not be guilty of. After each horrid drunk, I would feel ashamed and promise myself that was the last one, but always I returned to the drinking again. I could not be honest with anyone because. 1 would not be honest with myself. I tried so many ways to sober up. Doctors would tell me I was wrecking my health. Could I accept that? I say no. I continued to drink. My friends would on different occasions consult me about my drinking problem. I would resent this. I would mark them off my list as friends and avoid them, as I could not stop drinking and wished they would not have said anything about my drinking problem. One year ago, I attended an AA Meeting. I saw men and women who had done something about their drinking problem—THAT I knew. I saw fellowship. I found step one in AA which was to soon change the course I had chosen in life. " Next week: More about my life as a alcoholic. How through AA I found a new way of Life: Sobriety. If you hart a drinking problem and would likt to do something about it, writ* . * .
