CUUKIKK NKWS FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1953 Sfassen Agrees With Ike On McCarthy Issue MSA Director Says He Is Happy Over Outcome (Continued from Page 1) agreement with a New York group of Greeks who operate 242 ships. He said they pledged not to carry goods to Communist China and North Korea or between Communist ports. This left them free, however, to haul goods from Western waters to other Iron Curtain areas, and McCarthy told a reporter there is a reason for that. To seek to bind them to a complete West-to-East boycott, he said, "could have meant infringing on State Department jurisdiction, and we don't ""lit- io do that." While the U. S. has barred all trade between this country and the Reds, some Western nations permii some such trade because they neec the Communist goods they get in return. McCarthy, in a letter to Dulles yesterday accused the press and television reporters of deliberately misrepresenting what had happened when he and Dulles met in a private conference Wednesday. He said a wire service reported that Dulles had "warned" McCar- Marc/?

TENT CITY thy against interfering in State Department affairs, and that television broadcast helped to foster that impression. "As I recall it," McCarthy wrote Dulles, "there was not even the slightest indication by anyone present that my committee was interfering in foreign policy or in any way with your department, and. therefore, no occasion for any 'warning,' " "Speaks For Itself" rDulles replied he felt the Joint statement they issued Wednesday speaks for itself. In their statement, the two agreed the ship owners' compact was "in the national interest" but that McCarthy would consult the State Department concerning any more such agreements and that foreign relations is the President's business. Members of McCarthy's subcom mittee said they believe the whole row over the ships might have beei avoided by a more dlplomaticallj phrased announcement by the Ben ator Saturday. Some of them np parently were nettled because caught them by surprise. One re suit has been a promise by Me Carthy, disclosed today, to kee] them more fully advised of wha he plans. The effect of the shin agreement seemed to be somewhat clouded by a statement yesterday from Manuel E. Kulukundls, president of the Greek snip owners' New York committee. He said that, while a number of the 242 vessels involved had engaged in trade behind the Iron Curtain, none of those operated by the 21 owners making up his committee have "transported cargoes in Communist trade." It appeared, then, that those which had traded with the Reds must have been among Die 40 or so ships owned by the firm headed by Stavros Livanos, not a member of the committee. Livanos' attorney said Saturday his cient's ships had taken nothing to Red China but had brought about n dozen cargoes of foodstuffs away from' there in recent years. McCarthy had said Saturday that "a sizable number of the vessels covered by this agreement have engaged in Communist trade." (Continued from Page 1) exchange is arranged. Maj. H. D.

Mr. Autry scored the 60-day biennial session as being too short to onsldcr the veritable mountain of egisiation (1.154 bills and 28 onstitutional amendments). Many of the bills are duplica- ions, he said, being introduced in iolh houses. Others "are purely oca! in effect," and require no tudy. Both Mr. Fleeman and Mr. Autrey pointed to the Legislative Council as an aid in cutting time and bringing first-hand information to the general assembly. All appropriation measures. Mr. Autrey Informed the group, are screened thoroughly by the council. Mr. Autry is retiring chairman of the group, but is still a member, having been appointed by the governor. Mr. Bearden was re-elected to membership by the senate and Mr. Fleeman is a retiring member. Most "Good Men'* The legislatures, both state and national, are the only things standing between the people and complete autocracy, Mr. Autry told the Rotarians. "In the 16 years I have been in :ho Arkansas legislature." he said, "I've seen the calibre representatives steadily rise. Most of the legislators are Rood men. Some counties continue o neglect the important duty of selecting sound men. but by and lan*e your general assembly is made up of sincere legislators who want to :lo a good job." he said. Mr. Autry told the group to "elect good men and then uphold the diy- lity of the group by refraining rom criticizing the legislature in )road generalities."
