JUNE 16, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUBIER NEWS McCarran Sneers At Ikes Address On 'Book Burners' WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. McCarran (D-Nev.) today labeled as "a pitiful thing" President Eisenhower's speech advising a college graduating class not to "join the book burners." "He showed«no knowledge of his committee, which has been look- subject," McCarran told newsmen. , ing into the overseas library "It's too bad a man in his position program PAGE doesn't know more about it. Someone must have sold him a bill of goods." McCarran is a member of the j^ Senate internal security subcom- * rnittee which has been searching for Communist influences in schools ami colleges. The President, in a commencement talk Sunday at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N. H., told graduates not to be "afraid to go to the library and read every book," and he asked: "How will we defeat communism, unless we know what it is?" The President said even those with whom we disagree have a right to set down their views and "to have them in places where they are accessible to others." If these rights are questioned, Eisenhower said, "it is not America." It was generally assumed that the President may have had in mind the demand by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), acceded to by the State Department, that books by known Communists and fellow travelers be removed from overseas information libraries which the department operates. No Direct Comment McCarthy, while he had no direct ;. comment, raised a number of questions about "book burning" yesterday in questioning Dr. James B. Conant, U. S. high commissioner for Germany, at a Senate Appropriations Committee budget hearing. Sen. Mundt (B-SD) said in a separate interview today it was "noteworthy that there are two things the President definitely did not say." Mundt is a member of McCarthy's Senate investigations "He did not say that he felt It was. a justifiable expenditure of taxpayers' money to put Communist books in tax-supported high schools, institutions of higher learning or' on the shelves of our information libraries overseas," Mundt said. "He did not say that he felt Communists should be permitted to teach American children in tax-supported high schools or higher institutions of learning. Wouldn't Object "What he appeared to refer to was a belief that there should be no governmental censorship which would prevent Americans from reading whatever volumes they desire to purchase for their own book shelves, or for the libraries of privately supported institutions of learning." Dr. Conant, who was president of Harvard University until the Eisenhower administration tapped him for his present post, told Mc- :arthy he would "certainly not" object to the presence in a college ibrary of books by Communist authors. He said all the books cited by McCarthy are undoubtedly in the Harvard library. He said he would have preferred if McCarthy had not undertaken a public purge of the overseas libraries, but had taken his com- jlaint to government officials and lad the books removed without publicity. McCarthy replied that U. S. tax- layers are paying for the informa- jon program and are entitled to know that the libraries circulated books by Communists and fellow travelers. Conant said he would agree the libraries should not cir- •SHE WEIGHS 6048 PENNIES—Judith Arlene Jennrich, 4, of Chicago, 111., is the 10,000th youngster to open an account at a branch ol the First Federal Savings and Loan Association and is told her weight in pennies.

Secretary of State Dulles, at a news conference yesterday, praised Eisenhower's speech and said offi- -ials of his department should use little more common sense In weeding out boots. He said he did not know how Tiany books had been removed rom the shelves, but that only 11 lad literally been burned at Sing- pore and Sydney, Australia. Or- !ers have gone out, Dulles said, ;0t to destroy books but merely to ake them out of circulation. NEW YORK <VP) — The heart of pianist-composer Ignarce Jan Paderewski is in the United States to stay, but his body will be returned to his native Poland when that country is again free. This was announced last night by Edward P. G. Imperatore, Brooklyn attorney, who earlier in the day had said the carefully preserved heart was to be returned someday to Poland. Imperatore said there had been a misunderstanding and that the musician, who died in 1941. had willed that his heart was always to stay in this country while the rest of his body would someday be sent to his homeland. The body is buried In Arlington Nttional Cemetery temporarily. The Polish government in exile will decide when it 1§ to be moved. The heart Is In Cypress Hills Abbey here.
