PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WfTDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 16, 1988 Matusow Says His Black List Of Radio-TV Stars Was False NEW YORK (AP)'— Harvey Matusow, who testified widely as an ex-Communist in recent years and now retracts many of his earlier statements, says in 1952 he made up a false blacklist of radio and TV actors. .. . ... . , 0 In federal court yesterday Matusow said the New York advertising firm of Lennen & Newell paid him $150 for the list. Matusow said he named many, even though he did not know them to be Communists, and that the list cost them their jobs. He did not identify anyone on the list. Matuso\v said Lennen & Newell bought the list under pressure from a client in connection with the Schlttz Playhouse of Stars program. An agency official in comment- utaiion was u'ith the New York City Board of Education, from which he earned $250 for 10 days' work as a consultant on a screening project. Matusow apparently made little Ing on Matusow's testimony, said impression on at least two Demo- the list was not used as a basis for j cratic senators whom he now says and did not "keep! he falsely accused of being Com hiring actors any actor from getting a job." Thomas Butcher, executive vice president of Lennen & Newel!, said Matusow's list was one of a number that the agency bought from "pressure groups." He added, "Most of them went into the dead file and are still there." Sentences Appealed The former witness in Communist probes and trials told of the blacklist while being examined before Judge Edward J. Dimock on his retraction of testimony against 13 second-rank Communist leaders. The 13 party bigwigs, convicted of conspiracy to teach and advocate the violent overthrow of the government, have appealed on the basis of Matusow's retraction. The witness said another Job he .nunist or pro-Communist. A third senator said he could not accept ar. apology from Matusow. Telephoned Apologies Among eight persons to whom the witness said he had telephoned apologies were Democratic Senators Herbert Lehman of New York, Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota and Mike Mansfield of Montana. In Washington Lehman commented: "Matusow never telephoned me at all." He added that he had never heard that Matusow had accused him of anything. Humphrey said he still is not sure just what Matusow said about him or where and is not "particularly perturbed about it." Mansfield said Matusow called to apologize "for the type of got through his ex-Communist rep- paign he conducted against me In 1952." The senator added: "I refused to talk to him. I don't want anything to do with him. There are some things you can't apologize for." WARNING ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY.

For example, a new system whereby the operator presses a series of keys to dial calls to other cities is rapidly replacing the present method of placint; your calls manually. Last year, 33 Long Distance centers in Southwestern Bell territory were added to the "Operator Dialing" network, making a total of 153 such centers now serving you in our five-state aiva. By 1960, the entire Southwestern Bell system will be interconnected so that practically all Long Distance calls will be dialed by the operator. Your Voice Travels Faster Today, your Long Distance calls go through 3 times faster than they did 10 years ago — thanks to new equipment, new methods OPERATING EXPENSES "OPERATOR DIALING" speeds your Long Distance call through in 30 seconds or less from tlie time you give the operator the number you want in the distant city. To enjoy the full timesaving advantages of this new, faster method, it pays more than ever to keep a list of out-of-town numbers so you can place your Long Distance calls by number. Much of the speed is lost if the operator must check Information in the distant eity lo get the number for you. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY IMPROVED LONG DISTANCE SERVICE is just one way Arkansas benefited last year by an SS'.-j million telephone construction program. \Ye know that a progressive state must have a growing telephone system. Although our increased investment increases operating expenses because it lakes more money lo operate a larger telephone system, we're moving ahead in 19.55 with plans for greater telephone iinprmeinciiLs — and greater benefits for Arkansas.
