(iP>— Frederick Vanderbill Field, millionaire "angel" of left-wing causes, refused today to tell a Senate committee whether he posted bonds for communist leaders. "I think I should refuse to answer. . .," Field said in a voice barely audible in the packed Senate hearing room. He pleaded that the qucslion led into an area which "might Involve answers tending to incriminate me'." And he stuck to it, although Chairman McCarran (D-Kev) of the Senate Internal Security Committee lectured him, that "it behooves every red-blooded American to help his country in this hour of dire necessity." Field was brought before the Senators from New York where lie is serving a 90-day jail term for con, tempt of court. That sentence was given him for refusing to tell a federal judge who contributed to the Civil Rights Congress bail fund. Bailed Out Four Fugitives The fund posted S80,000 bond [or four Communists who skipped after losing an appeal to the Supreme Court from convictions with seven others plotting to teach the overthrow of tlie government by violence. Two officials from ths Federal Bureau of Prisons brought Field before the Senate Internal Security Committee. Hearings by the Senators are directed at determining whether there have been subversive .influences on U.S. Far Eastern policy. The Senate group is Inquiring into affairs of the Institute of Pacific Relations. Field is a former offi cial of that organization. Right after Field look the witness chair, Chairman McCarran (D- Nev) asked the committee members to retire into another room for a brief closed meeting. Held now is serving so days in jail.

The secretary of state .testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Commiltce. He said tile Korean armistice negotiations, regardless of their outcome, will not affect the need to rearm the free world against Communist aggression which "is no less real lhan it t.'as a monlh ago." "Then may be a period of comparative quiet If there is an armistice in Korea." he told Senators. "If .so, we must not let • ourselves be pulled off balance by a shift In tactic. 1 ;. "If the armistice talks should collapse, \ve should be ready tor a major Communist assault on the United Nations forces. The enemy has been building up his forces throughout this period." Acheson was urging approval o! the administration's $4,503.000.000 foreign aid program al the outset of hearings by the Semite Foreign Relations Committee. He termed the proposa! "an essential and vital part ol our country's defense and foreign policies." Declaring that the need lor American military, and economic support of its free world allies "is -is great today as it has ever been,' The announcement emphasized thai agreement on the agenda "is merely the Initial step for the'final goal of a military armistice and resultant cease-fire," The second and third points lisk- ed on the agenda offered the biggest hurdles that negotiators will huve to overcome. The first point, adoption of tha 3endn. is a routine matter similar to approval of minutes of a preceding session. . Setting a buCferxzane raises th« question of whethcr.lt Is to be along the present b'atlle''lfnesYin North Korea, as the U.N. wishes, or along the 38th Parallel as the Reds want. I-lnes Far Ap.lrt These two possible demarcation lines are 20 or 30 mile* apart in some plLccs. In settling this single point, negotiators will outline the exact position to be assumed by each army "so as to establish a demilitarized, zone as the basic condition for cessation of hostilities In Korea." 'Hie third point is the most complex and reaches to the heart of communtat sensitiveness to any foreign groups acting as supervising agents In territory they control Officially Point Three was listed as: "Concrete arrangements for the realization of cease-fire and armistice in Korea. Including the composition, authority nnd functions of a supervising organization for carrying out the terms of a cease-fire and armistice." The United Nations wants adequate supervision and actual inspection by some International commission on each side of tha cease-fire zone.
