THTJRSIUT, JUNE 18, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRU! Probers Ask Ruling On Clark Want Justice To Testify On Record By WARREN ROGERS JR. . WASHINGTON (AP) — jl^Rep. Keating (R-NY) goes before the House Judiciary Committee today for a ruling on whether congressional prob- ers can force Supreme Court Justice Tom C. Clark to testify. Clark yesterday turned down an invitation to appear before Keating's judiciary subcommittee. Such sn appearance would involve the Supreme Court's independence, Clark said, adding that a justice must avoid "the strife of public affairs and partisan politics.' ' But Keating, in a statement after ji. Clark's letter to him was made j; public by other sources, said he |[f saw no question involving the pre- j! : i rogatives of the branches of gov- |i eminent. 'jh Rep. Hillings (R-Calif), a sub- .jj, committee member, called Clark's ,\('. refusal "unfortunate" and said the ji; group will meet in closed session H'j late today to decide whether to sub):! poena Clark. 'W- Hillings' comment came before i" Keating said he wanted it "au[:-,' thoritatively" settled whether a i committee of Congress has the If right to call a judge before it. |jt Keating added: j ; "The matters upon which the :'' committee desires to interrogate , Justice Clark have no relation ;!• whatever, to his judicial duties." ! Keating's subcommittee has been I- investigating the Justice Depart!<'!' ment, which Clark headed as attor- '; ney general from 1945 until he was named to the Supreme Court by : former President Truman in 1949. ',: Questions Arise From time to time, the subcom- | mittee has raised questions about ; Clark's actions as attorney general :• in tax and other cases. "The subcommittee should agree," Clark wrote Keating, "that the courts must be kept free from ' public controversy. ... I must forego my personal inclination to appear before your subcommit- Clark said that/ of seven cases investigated by the committee, three were subjects of committee . probes by the 80th Congress. In j^S each of these three, he said, his •' actions were found to be in the 1 public interest. There was no comment from i. Clark on another case with which i he has been linked by recent testi- 1 mony before Keating's , group.. An • agreement permitting a Minneapolis doctor to settle a $118,000 delinquent tax claim for $35,000 after pleading guilt yto criminal tax fraud charges, i Peyton Ford, deputy attorney general under Clark, told the subcommittee under oath yesterday no such agreement existed to his knowledge. But he said attorneys \ for the physician, Dr. Olaf Olson, might have thought they had an agreement through a misunderstanding. Confusion Ford said Victor Anderson, TJ. S ''.. attorney at Minneapolis in 1947, . recommended dropping criminal prosecution -and settling the Olson case administratively. Ford said Clark's explanation of a department i policy, against compromising tax ,» cases while criminal charges were . pending, was conveyed to Anderson. The version Anderson got was that the department could not consider settlement of the tax claim "until there was a plea to one count of the indictment," Ford Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton July .

In Washington, Bonn other Western capitals the outbreak was viewed generally as a damaging blow to Soviet claims of creating a workers' paradise, a monkey wrench in the new Red peace offensive, and a powerful spur to pressure for unification of Germany. Washington sources, citing reports of similar recent unrest in Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria, said looked like Russia's hold on East Europe may be slipping even more ihan the West had hoped. The Red Berlin radio announced the names of 18 youngsters under 20 who it said had been arrested in connection with the wild demonstrations. The broadcast identified the youths as Western agents —and listed all but two as Soviet zone residents.

T. Lamar Caudie, ousted by Truman as assistant attorney general, had testified Sen. Langer (R-ND) reported the settlement was agreed upon after conferences Langer had with Ford and Clark. Ford agreed with Caudle that the settlement—after Olson pleaded guilty to the criminal charge and was fined $10,000 and given a suspended one-year prison sentence— was "unusual." But Ford expressed the belief the good results." government "got Apparently Russian riflemen shot down several hundred Germans, but the exact casualty toll was impossible to pin down. The German Red Cross identified 16 bodies in West Berlin hospitals as riot gunshot victims. There, also, were 119 wounded, some in serious condition. How many lay dead or wounded in the Soviet zone could not be determined. The heavy hand of Soviet martial law gripped the city's Eastern sector . Uncompromising Russian sentries blocked every main frontier point. Behind them stood tanks, armored cars and mobile guns. The Russians rushed a full tank division into the sector, with the last elements bivouacking in East Berlin about 4 a. m. today. Soviet officials clamped a blockade on the highway linking West Berlin with West Germany to keep the roads clear for the fast-moving Soviet division. The blockade was lifted at 5 a. m. and all transit traffic on the West Berlin lifeline again rolled normally. The Russians booted into obscurity the East Berlin Communist police who so signally failed to keep order yesterday. Soviet authorities blanketed 11. : Eastern sec tor with their own gunners, teamed up with Red German armed units brought In from deep in the East zone. j In the Western sectors of the ' city, American, British and French troops were held at top alert in the background, ready to jump into! any emergency too big for the West Berlin police to handle. The latter maintained their cordons at the sector border to keep their people from the potentially dangerous Soviet boundary. The Russians resorted to a sym- 1 bol to declare themselves on top i of their bubbling cauldron. In the I early daylight, a crew clambered i on top the Brandenburg Gate ,on ; the border, and hoisted a Red flag. The banner's predecessor had been ripped down and burned by rioters yesterday afternoon.

All Army rest and recuperation leaves in Japan were cancelled Thursday after the South Korean government released 25,000 anti- Communist war prisoners from Allied compounds in Korea. But it appeared probable that the men aboard the doomed plane already had completed their leave, A spokesman pointed out that it normally takes more than a day to process returning leave troops and probably would take longer to get men recalled on emergency orders. Not On Fire in Air Japanese firemen were the first to reach the blazing plane. "Seven of us rushed to the burn- Ing wreckage and pulled out seven dying men," one of them said. "All the others were trapped in the' flames and we could do nothing." Hiroji Kato. a 35-year-old farmer, was slight!" burned when the big craft exploded. "I heard a tremendous sound of engines," he told the newspaper Asahi. "I looked up from the field and saw this huge plane falling on me. I almost fainted. Then it crashed and exploded. The blast burned me in several places, but | my wife and son, who were work-1 ing with me about 35 feet away, were not hurt." An 18-year-old farmer, Sadao Masua, said "there was no smoke when it fell but flame shot up when it crashed. We ran to the field where the wreckage was scattered all about. There were many bodies of the dead thrown out by the im•pact." Last Friday the Air Force brief!y grounded all Gldbemasters after the failure of small generator parts had caused fires in the engines of two planes. Most of the planes were out of service only a few hours . Witnesses agreed that the Globe- master which crashed today was not afire when it hit the ground.
