PACE TWELVE Rev. Oxnam Asks Probers to Repent WASHINGTON (AP) — Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam told the House Un-American Activities Committee today it should "frankly admit its inaccuracies and misrepresentations" about him. And he called on the committee, in a statement prepared for n hearing which he requested, to halt "the practice of releasing unverified and unevaluated material for which the committee accepts no responsibility.' : "We can not beat down the Communist menace by bearing fnlse witness against fellow Americans," the Methodist churchman fin id. "The Communists want a divided America, nn America whose citizens are suspicious of each other, on America without trust, an Aerie a open to infiltration. "I believe this committee will wish to end a practice that plays into Communist hands." Waiver The committee, some of whose members have been critical of the bishop, announced in advance of the televised session that he would be permitted to read a 15-mmute opening statement without interruption—an unusual waiver of its l rules. for his unpreccorented and untrue statements made there concerning me." If Jackson aoes so, Oxnan said, "I will be the first to shake hands with him and to call the incident closed." The Californian, in a House speech last March 17, assailed th bishop as a man who "served Goc oo Sunday and the Communis front for the balance of the week.' Jackson also made reference to the committee's files on Oxnam and said they mirrowed a "recon of aid and comfort to the Com munist front." Oxnam said Jackson drew frorr the committee's files a conclusion hat he held Communist symp; thies. If a member of (he committee can be so misled by this material t is no wonder that uniformec citizens are similarly misled," he added. Oxnnm quoted Jackson as having TRUCE "I have requested opportunity to said ln a recent radio debate with appear voluntarily ... to secure!! 11 ™ that the committee «« —redress for the damage done me by the release of information in the 'files' of this committee," Bishop Oxnam said. "I deeply appreciate the grant of this privilege. " releases, made at various times for a period of nearly seven years, have contained material, accumulates all pertinent information relative to any given individual whose name is listed in the files" and "(hat is the only way by which one can determine tho philosophi Cfll bent of tiny given individual."

"This might be called 'Pertinent' information," he added. Oxnam said he rejects Communism because of Us atheism and repudiates the philosophy of mute- erialism upon which Communism is based. He added Hint he isn't an economist but has studied enough lo be convinced Ihtil there are basic fallacies in Marxian economics.

From statements dropped by government sources and Foreign Minister Pyun, it appeared Rliee was growing somewhat Impatient about the reply from Washington.

The campaign already has bo gun. Sixteen workers were sen tenced to prison terms—one for life—in Dresden yesterday for taking part in the June rebellion. Mrs. Benjamin admitted that mass arrests following the revolt had failed to wipe out the "nests of Fascist agents" she blamed for the uprising. Blames Max She also blamed her purged predecessor, Max Fechner, for being too lenient in his treatment of the rebels and said he "made the fundamental mistake of trying to justify as a mere strike a Fascist putsch against the state." Fechner had announced that no one would be punished for merely 'exercising their constitutional right" to strike. He promised to concentrate on strikers who restored to violence. A few days later he was arrested s an "enemy of the republic." In West Berlin last night, 5,000 anti-Communists marched a mile n silence to dedicate n memorial to those who died in the June 17 •evolt.
