Aug. 5. (UP)-Elliott Roosevelt angrily struc't back today at what, he called the "despicable insinuation" that publicity man John W. Meyer "procured" girts for him. ,The isF,ue of Roosevelt's morn::; was threshed over at his own request in his second nppoar.mcc before a Senate War ing Subcommittee which is looking into win-time plane contracts awarded to Howard Hughes, multimillionaire manufacturer and iro- vie-maker. Rocscvelt told the investigators that: "I deny MV '.\:iole heart and EOHI . . . that Meyer ever got a girl for inc." Meyer, party-thrower and publicity agent for Hughes, had U stifled that, |he spent around $3.000 on entcrta'.ii.'HMt, for 'Col. E.

Roosevelt get from Meyer the admission that this didn't mean the girls were "procured" or lhat they were Roosevelt's companions on parties. Meyer admitted .that he put Roosevelt's name on expense accounts, not because all the money mentioned -was spent on the President's sou but because "lie wns the most important person present." Roosevelt has asserted that only a fraction of the $5.030 could have been spent on bim because he '"picked up my fair share of the checks." Slormy Session Held In a 'irequcntly stormy session Roosevelt: 1. 'Accused- the subcommittee of suppressing- date about "millions and millions of gifts" to other Army officers during the war and singling him -nit Ix'eaivie he was "the son of a president."
