WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. <UP> — Witness** called to testify ki be- hall, of Howard Hughes today delayed the opening of the Bena-t* Investigating subcommittee's hearing Into the planemaker's war contracts for one hour when they Jailed to appear promptly. The fourth day of Ihe inquiry Into Hughes' $40,000,000 In war contracts got off to a stumbling start when none of the nine witnesses, requested by Hughes, appeared at the opening at the session. The committee abruptly recessed to discuss its plans. Later Hughes sauntered in. But Chairman Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., said the mll- js.llonaire sportsman would not be ^called today. Committee counsel William P. Rogers then called olf the names of the Hughes witnesses again and four answered this time. They were told to testify at 11:15 a.nv The Hughes witnesses were ex- peeled to testify In support of the planemaker's manufacturing "know- how" and to deny charges by other witnesses that "high level pressure" was used by Hughes to get his war orders. Four Show Up To Testify The first four witnesses answer- Ing to their names were Col. E. A. Peterman; Edward Schwartz, list ed as a former member of the Air Force Evaluation Board; John Parkinson, a representative of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and Olen Odckirk, an executi* of the Hughes Aircraft plant. When today's session opened Fer- gusoa called off the nine names, headed by Lt. Gen. Barney Giles, wartime chief of staff for the Army Air Force. He paused aft«r each to ask It the witness was present. None responded. M.. . -,.•••-• Hughes Jater arrived "at : the Senate Office Building 18 minutes after the hearing was operied by Fergu- . - 'aoiv - - _-- - '-;•.•• After calling off the nine name Ferguson then reviewed the recora to show the requests made by Slack beginning on Oct. 31. to have various witnesses called in Hughes behalf. Ferguson said Slack had been advised to have them present Thursday, then yesterday and finally today. '*», Slack advised the committee yes»- terriay, Ferguson said, that only one was In town but that all would be on hand today. Slack himself then took the stand to tell the committee he was unaware until 9 a.m. today that thi nine Hughes witnesses were expect' ed to be on hand at the beginning of today's session. He said that Maj Ocn. Bennett E, Meyers, retired former army air force procuremen officer, had not completed test! mony begun yesterday. He said h° thought Meyers would testify today Ferguson agreed that Slack had not been notified- of the schedule but said that Noah Dietrich, executive vice president of the Hughe,.
