City Calls Bids I May 10 on Street Repair Material Through the street repairs committee of City Council, bids were called today for opening at 3 p. m., May 10, on furnishing of materials required for the an, nual maintenance of both arterial and non-arterial streets of the city. Separate bids calls with regard to the two classes of streets have been made, said City Engineer Fair/ield, because the arterial street work is paid from motor fuel tax funds while the non-arterial work comes from city street funds. The Division • of Highways must approve any awards of contracts on the MFT- financed portion of the street repair program. ; Materials required are primarily oil, liquid asphalt, and stone chat. The invitation for bids was isssued, said Fail-field, after he was informed by the Division of Highways mat the program of arterlaJ street repairs, and the necessary appropriation of MFT funds had been approved, With the early bid call, an early start on the annual street maintenance program seems assured. The proposals received will be acted on by the city council at its first May meeting. er;il perjury statute," he snid Wall In Wall Crowd Marinr Will Nol RrTrirrl As hrfr>1P ' fhis fifth '>«>• "' [hearings hroURhl a wall . to - wall | sonal aide, told newsmen the 12 crowd to the Senate Office Build- 'officers would he tried hy courts- Ing's biggest hearing room 'martial "and will br inflicted the While it was the fifth day on most severe punishment." j TMur f>hy, * Charleston, Mo., which Stevens has testified, lie has Arrest of the army officers had Nf>Rm said '"* WBS living In Bir••— - '...-. l mingham, Ala., when he joined For Confusion B\ < . \\TKS MC'IUMKI.

Shepherd and Anderson said they ell Schwablc's "military useful- less has been seriously Impaired." And Shepherd termed Schwnhle'.s confession — even though under jreal stress — n "severe blow to he national interest by one whose sole motivation should have been to} fostcr^nd preserve il." As a consequence, said the Ma•die commandant, Schwablc's hi- ure duties would have, to he Ihose asks "milking minimum demands upon the elements of unblemished Jersonal example «nd leadership." The court found thut Schwable violated Navy regulations by giv- ng the enemy more than his name, ank and serial number. It held »lso Hint his false confession 'brought discredit upon the United States" and gave "aid and coin- ort to Hip enemy." But it recommended against n ornml court-martial on the ground hat ho resisted to the limit of his ability a "diabolical method of tor- nee which combines degradation, ieprivation nnd mental harass- iient, nnd which is aimed nt the destruction of Ihe individual's will o resist."

Jenkins, the subcommittee's special counsel for Hie inquiry. They declined lo comment on their interview, and wouldn't tell the names of the two government workers. Mundt said he would discuss with the subcommittee whether lo have either called lor public hearing questioning. Jackson questioned Stevens specifically today about a memorandum previously made, public: by McCarthy. Dated Oct. L', .l'j;)3, it was in Ihe form of a note from Francis P. (,'arr, the subcommittee's staff director, to the senator. It told of Carr nnd Colin meeting with Stevens at the Pentagon and quoted Stevens as saying he thought that Schine should take his initial basic training and then, he (Stevens) "would be able to use Schine lo his own advantage in the Army." The memo added: "Hi- i.Sievens) stilted Hint he WHS very interested in any question ol communism or Communist infiltration and that he could envision I hut Dave, could bo of great assistance to him, if after basic, be could attend some security • type school within the Army and report to Stevens his observations . . ."

Gov. G. Mention Williams of Michigan, where the auto industry has been hard-hit by layoffs, said in an interview he intended to ask whether the administration has any plans for combatting unemployment. "I've been asking for some time, and I shall keep on asking," he said. The administration claims un- •mployment is leveling off and that here is reason to hope that bus- iness will Improve later this year. But some Democrats have contended lhat if the jobless trend has slowed, there is no sign yet of an employment pickup. The latest government count of unemployed is 3,723,000. Labor unions have urged the administration to launch a federal spending program to provide jobs but President Eisenhower has said present conditions don't warrant any slam-bang emergency measures that might interfere with a normal, expected recovery.
