TUESDAY, JULY 29, 1952 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 PAQE THREB Grand Jury Probe Is Planned In Tuck Bishop Furlough Case LITTLE ROCK — Pulaskl , County Circuit Judge Guy Amsler j says he will call a special Grand Jury Thursday lo investigate the statement by A convicted, murderer, Tuck Bishop, tliat he bought a 90-day furlough from the Arkansas penitentiary. However, nl Sumner, Wash., early this morning. Bishop's claim that the actual furlough papers were in possession ot his brother, H. E. Bishop, a Tacoma, Wash., smcKer worker, was denied. The Tacoma worker said his brotner had told him that he "bought a furlough," but other details or the convict's story in connection with his brother were denied. Prosecutor Tom Downie requested the Grand Jury last night, aflei checking several points in Bishop's notarized statement, which wns forwarded to Arkansas from Utah where Bishop is under a death sentence for two murders. Subpoena Planned DownEe also said thai he is Issuing a subpoena Tor State Sen. Clyde Byrd to appear before the icaring. Byrd said last night that 10 "knows absolutely nothing about the case." At Sumner. H. E. Bishop said [hat his brother had visited him Christmas Eve, 1951. The slayer received a 10-day furlough from the Arkansas prison where he was serving a life term lor the death of four person;.. He said In his statement that he actually paid $1,500 for a 90-day furlough in a Little Hock hotel room meeting a few days before Christmas. Papers Are Burned Bishop quoted his brother as sayIng: "I bought a furlough. I had to pay ten $100 hilts for ten ilnys." Bisho,:'s brother said Tuck "burned all the papers I saw him' with" during his one-day visit. He r,aid his brother had written him from Utah asking me to "look and see if 1 could find Ihe furlough paper." ' "We turned the house upside down anyway and didn't find a thing," the brother said. Downie said that it had been established that Ihe slayer occupied a hotel room at the time he said he paid the money and thai a $1,295 telegraphic money order was received at Little Rock from Springfield, Mo., while Bishop was on the Christmas furlough. The convict said the money was used to pay for his freedom. But prison records show that only the holiday clemency was received] by the slayer and Oov. McMath said yesterday that no clemency other than a 10-day furlough was granted. Chennault Wins Reds' Airplanes Britain Rules 40 Belong to CCAT; Decision Reversed The Life of Adlai Stevenson— Stevenson Acquired Vision of U.S. Post-War Place as Early as 1941 LONDON!aV-The Far East airline headed by Maj. Gen. Claire Chennault—of Flying Tiger fame— has won $.2,600,000 worth of airplanes from the Chinese Communists. Britain's Privy Council, the Em plrc's highest court, ruled yesterday Hint the 40 plane. 1 ) belonged lo Chenrmult's Civil Air Transport Inc. The decision reversed a Hong Kerns; court which had named the Chinese Communist regime the riy lit fill owner. The Cuuiicil £ave no reason for reviTE-tnc* (he earlier decision bu ! sairj it would explain later. The planes—formerly owned b? the Chinese Nationalist Govcrntnen —were impounded in Hong Konp following ihe Communist victor, in the Chinese civil war. The Red claimed they had "inherited" then when the Chiang Kai-shek Gov crnment fled to Formosa, Chen- j nault EI«sorted he had bought them from the Nationalists. In Hong Kong, police ousted Chinese Communists who have been watching the 40 planes since the original court decision in 1050. The Red Chinese guards were sent back to China by truck. SPRINGFIELD. 111. iJ)—When he. returned to Washington in 1941. Adlai Stevenson already had acquired a vision of America's place in the shrinking, strife - ridden world. His knowledge of international relations grew in succeeding years, until eventually he assisted in the birlh of the U. N. and participated in its first and second general assemblies. By the middle 1940's, Stevenson was working on foreign policy problems with Ihe late. Sen. Arthur Vandenburg, , J o h n Foster Dulles and Sen. Tom Connally. His original Interest in the subject probably sprang from boyhood travels with his family In Europe and his experiences in 1926 on a tour of the Near East and Russia. It ripened in the I930's as a member, and finally president, of the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. Stevenson returned to Washm; ton as a special assistant to Navy Secretary Frank Knox, one of two Republicans then in FDR's cabi net. Knox put him to work laying legal groundwork for seizure .struck shipyards at Kearney.N.J. The machinery he devised served as a pattern for 60 subsequent seizures. After Japan's Dec. 7, 1941. strike against Pearl, Harbor plunged the U. S. into World War II, Stevenson was dispatched to the Caribbean urea and the Panama Canal one to gather information on defense preparations. Next, he accompanied Knox and high Navy officers on a tour of the nation's bastions in the Pacific. Further wartime travels lay ahead. Before he was through, Stevenson visited Algeria, Tunis, Liberia, Italy, France, Luxembourg and Germany.. Perhaps his most important assignment was as chief of a' for- ef~n economic administration mission to Italy. Its put pose was to plan for relief and rehabilitation of the liberated areas. In Italy, Stevenson met the man who eight years later was to be his rival for the presidency — t D. Eisenhower. The brief encounter occurred in the corridor of a Naples gtfice building. Eisenhower asked how things were going and Stevenson said ns well as could be expected Th a t's all there was to t h e exchange. Knox died In April. 1944. and Stevenson resigned. However, he undertook another wartime a$si>n- ti ment that fall, serving as an Army . air mission to evaluate strategic bombing damage in Germany. Tn 1945 Stevenson moved over a few notches into the domain of diplomacy proper. Called to UN Meet The Slate Department called on Stevenson to help promote public understanding of the forthcoming U.

After 1933. Stevenson said he saw no more of Kiss for nearly 12 years. The two renewed their acquaintance early in 1945 when both were employed by the Stale Department. ' Paths Merger and Cross In the next two years, Stevenson and Hiss followed official paths that merged and crossed several times. . ! This sort of contact continue:] intermittently Into the latter part of 1947, when they had theii final encounter—in New York. At that time, Stevenson was a U. N. Alternate delegate and Hiss was ecn- necied with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Eighteen months passed. Stevenson now was governor of Illinoir,.

He said Hiss had a good reputation, among their acquaintance:; in common, on each of the specific points raised. Early this year, Stevenson was asked about the deposition.
