Herbert K. O'Conor (D-Md) to demand his Immediate dUmUsal. O'Conor angrily, called for the ouater of Frank Co*, American- bom iccrtlary of the fund, as the Senate Internal security subcommittee resumed hearings here yesterday. It Is probing alleged American Communist* in tht United Nation*, and , U. N, specialized •gene lea. •I* more of the fund's employes have been subpoenaed for the public hearings which continue today and tomorrow. Coe, himtelf, revealed In testi- monj- yesterday that the State Department had denied a passport to him last year a* a poor security risk and that Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder only a month ago had asked the head of the fund to fire Coe from his »20,000-a-year position. A spokesman at the fund's headquarters In Washington said after a .meeting .yesterday, with the fund's .managing director, ' Ivar Booth of Sweden, (hat there would be "no comment yet" on Coe's testimony. The fund is one of several spe- _ clallsed agencies having contractual relations with the U. N.< which ha* no authority over the fund's personnel. The fund does its own hiring and firing. Coe, 45, was the only witness yesterday. Time- after time: he're- fused : to answer the subcommittee's questions-on the constitutional 'grounds of possible ,«elf-incrimination. He had been named In IMS as a Communist and wartime spy ring agent in .testimony.'by Elizabeth T. Bentley, confessed former Soviet spy ring courier, before the House Un_- American ..• activities Committee." The: Virginia-born Coe . then appeared before the House group and denied under oath Mrs. Bentley's allegations. Testerday he remained silent on questions concerning these pre vious accusations by Mrs. Bentley as well as a number of other subjects :brought lip by the subcom- ihittee. Falling In his day-long attempts to draw detailed answers from Coe, O'Conor finally scribbled a atatme'nt out in pencil and read It at,the end of• the session. "Coe should be dismissed summarily from his post," said O'Conor as his face flushed in anger and his fingers tapped in irritation on the table.
