r TBTTOSDAT TULT W, 1W1 Senator Renews Threat to Name Loyalty Suspects Stat«j Department's Action Leave* No Choice, M'Carthy Sayt .^WASHINGTON, July 2« (;P) — senator McCarthy (R-Wis) satd today it appears to him he has no choice but to name in the Senate 29 persons he contends are under investigation (or loyalty within the State Department. Commenting on the department's brusque rejection of his demand for assurance that the 29 persons do not have access to state secrets, McCarthy (old a reported: "I am Inclined to think I luive no choice but to name them unless the State Department completely reverses its stand. The situation is too dangerous not to do so." Assailing the Senator's threats to name the 29 persons as a "jjolitical stratcgcjn," the department said yesterday that some of the persons on McCarthy's list are not even in the department, some have been cleared, and all employes are barred from secret papers if the department finds that "such access might constitute a danger to the security of the United States." McCarthy ,on Monday had written Secretary ot State Acheson he would name the 28 persons he said face loyalty checks unless he received assurance they did not have access to secret papers. He has named only livo of them: Jfcjbassador Philip Jcssup and John Airier Vincent, H career diplomat. Without confirming that nny of the 29 are under loyalty investigation, Deputy Undersecretary Carlisle Humelsine replied yesterday that under a presidential order the department is barred from making public any reports or records bearing on loyalty cases. Humelsine added: "Your indiscriminate lumping of names and the threat to make them public is tantamount to holding hostage the reputations and rights of these employes who hnve been or may be cleared of the allegations against them." He said also that all department, officials undergo complete checks, flint questions as lo loyalty of anv employe bring full FBI checks, and that the department's Loyalty Review Board has never been reversed by the top Civil Service Loyalty Board which reviews its findings. McCarthy contended that Hu^cl sine's letter was "deliberately calculated to mislead." He said of all the departmental loyalty boards, that in the State Department "is the only one which has never found (ARK.) Tension Between India And Pakistan Mounting NEW DELHI, India. July 36.
