TWELVE (v.uuiu£<K FK1DAY, JULY 10, IBM Presidential Fury Ousts Matthews By G. MILTON KKLLEY WASHINGTON (AP) — A vigorious blast from President Eisenhower, fired over the bead of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), has blown J. B. Matthews out of the investigating job in which McCarthy had sought to keep him. "AMen to America." the President •Aid in obvious reference to the statement in a magazine article by Matthews that 7,000 Protestant clergymen are "the largest single group supporting the Communist apparatus" in this country. McCarty promptly accepted the leged communism In the ranks of Protestant clergymen h;ui stirred up a bitter row -apparently acknowledged deferst within ;i fo\v minutes after the White House made P'.ib- lic Eisenhower's denunciation of his views.

Th« fast breaking developments which marked Matthews 'departure underscored seemingly strained re' lations between Eisenhower and McCarthy, who several times have seemed on the verge of head-on collisions. McCarthy, for years the center of controversy in Washington, was simultaneously involved in two other brushes With the administration. These came when the senator; I.

Criticizes State 2- Aimed sharp criticism at a new State Department directive declaring that some Communist writers' books may be used in the TJ. S. overseas libraries. He got a swift reply Indicating the department intends to stick to its guns. Matthews, whose article about al- azine "is completely factual and defense, but "I won't have any part" fully documented." He has emphasized that he wrote that the vast majority of clergymen are loyal. McCarthy, who hnd filed away an earlier resignation, accepted this one. In cutting words. Eisenhower hac made public a message to a religious group declared that "I fully share" its protest that Matthews accusation was "unjustified and deplorable."

Denunciation "And when these attacks—whatever their professed purpose be— condemn such a vast portion of a!! the churches or clergy as to create doubt in the loyalty of all, the damage to our nation is multiplied. "The churches of America are citadels of our faith in individual freedom and human dignity. This j faith is the living source of all our • spiritual strength- And this strength is our matchless armor in the world wide struggle against the forces of Godless tyranny and oppression." McCarthy's acceptance of the resignation came on the pve of a scheduled closed meeting of his subcommittee 9:30 a.m- EST at which its three Democratic member. 1 ) had served notice thry would renew their once-blocked effort to fire Mat- ', thews. | McCarthy then claimed sole nu- of an investigation of the clergy. Sen Symington (D-Mo.), also a member, issued a statement: "I have no comment on what he (Matthews) said until I obtain further information with respect to the nature of his resignation." Sen. Potter (R-Mich.), who had backed the three Democrats' removal, said of the resignation; It was a wise decision."

He called it "the most blatant attempt to flout the authority of a congressional committee" he had ever encountered. Other members of McCarthy's committee said the whole matter took them by surprise. Sen. Mundt (R-SD) said he hadn't the faintest notion McCarthy was investigating anyone in the CIA. Sen. Henry Jackson (DWash refused to discuss the situation. Bundy was reported on vacation, but the CIA and members ol his fnrnily here said they did noi know his whereabouts. McCarthy said Bundy gave three reasons, in writing, for his allege' contribution to the defense fund of Alger Hiss: 1. That he wanted to help his father-in-law, Acheson. (Continued from Pag« t) came after a 20-day recess which followed Rhee's release of some 27,000 anti-Communist Korean War prisoners. It came on the second anniversary of the first negotiating session. Correspondent Alan Winnington of the London Daily Worker told Western newsmen here Friday: "The thing now is whether the United Nations commander will ve assurance that the armistice will not be broken. Rhee does not "i«ure in the signing, only the military commanders of the two sides." He said the Communists were merested in the talks in so far as they apply to a U. N. guarantee that South Korea will not violate truce. Rhee did not meet Friday with resident Eisenhower's envoy, Assistant Secretary of State Walter Robertson. And there was no announcement when another session would be held. Truce Is Attached A South Korean government spokesman bitterly assailed the Red letter calling for resumption of the armistice talks and declared that it "should be rejected and dismissed without a reply." Said Dr. Karl Hong Ki, official ROK spokesman: "Both the tone and content oi this letter demonstrate beyond any question that the Communist aggressors have not changed to the slightest degree their intention of attempting to conquer all of Korea as soon as they can persuade our forces to place themselves in an indefensible position." Rhee refuses to support any truce which does not guarantee unification of Korea soon, by force if necessary. A South Korean source told Associated Press Correspondent Bill Speech Winner At Rotary Club Phil Ander;.on, Jr., Marked Tree high school student who has won elate public speaking honors this summer, addressed members of the Blythevllle's Rotary Club yesterday. Young Anderson won the state Future Farmers ol America speech contest and will represent Arkansas in the tristate contest. Should he prove a winner there, he will advance to the national event. He was introduced by O. B. Holt, Marked Tree vocational agriculture instructor. W. S. Johnston had charge of the program. Other guests included C. P. Burns, Marked Tree; C. H. Buchanan, Osceola; Charles Dicus. Jonesboro; R. W. Plippen. Memphis, and H. E. Phillips, Osceola. Wrong Johnson In Car Wreck The driver of an automobile involved in a wreck on North 10th Street yesterday was incorrectly reported to the Courier News as Mrs. I. R. Johnson. Driver of the car which struck the side of a house on the corner of 10th and Holly was Mrs. R. L. Johnson of. Highland Street. Shinn that Rhee "still is insisting that South Korea must have from America concrete assurances that Korea will be unified, peacefully or otherwise." He indicated the talks, which began 15 days ago, will "remain stalemated" until the U. S. provides these guarantees. The source said Rhee was adamant despite U S. offers of a military security pact, substantial economic aid and four more army divisions. Clark delivered a letter to Rhee Thursday, but its contents still I were secret. - ' RUSSIAN (Continued from Pag« 1) known in Moscow that he has had not only his finger but his whole arm in the bubbling German cauldron. Has Stalin's old fellow country- tan—both were Georgians—been damned because of this? It is quite possible, no matter what official explanation is now rolling off the propaganda machine of the Central Committee of the Communist party. Twelve years of watching events i Russia have certainly convinced me of .one thing: : when something happens as has happened in Germany, somebody has to be singled out. If it is anybody the boys can get their hands on, punishment follows denunciation as night-does day. Waiting: for False Step A great wrestling bout for power was going on before the German demonstrations, of course, but those events coming on top of the liberation of the framed doctors and a denunciation of the police and their methods could have given Malenkov the gun he was seeking to fire in Beria's face. Beria is being denounced in Moscow this morning for, among other things, trying to put his police before the party and government. If one can believe this, it could mean Beria had been trying to arrest some of his colleagues in he party and government. Possibly malenkov himself. Noteworthy, also, is the contin- emphasis from Moscow today on criticism of the "leader cults," of which Stalin worship is the supreme and utter example. There also has been more emphasis on collective leadership. Are the Communist leaders in power really trying to work out a government by committee or is this the same old Communist trick of calling the sun the moon and BIG THREE (Continued from Pagt M of the upheaval In the Kremlin, Bi< U.
