THURSDAY, APRIL M, 1954 (ARK.) COURfflR McCarthy Raps Signing of Army Bill of Charges Stnator Wants Only Individuals, Not Army, Accusing Him (Continued from Page 1) emn warning that "the reputations, the actions and perhaps the integrity of responsible public officials" were under challenge. To "Follow Evidence" Mundt pledged the subcommittee would "follow the evidence "" " ^ 'eads" and told the newsmen covering the hearings he was certain they would be fair in Presenting the hearings to the public. He said the subcommittee would seek only to determine the truth in the charges and counter-charges between McCarthy and Army officials. In a prepared opening statement, Mundt reviewed these charges,- and said that "each participant in this dispute, like each member of our subcommittee, will be checked and watched." carefully The charges made by each side, as well as their implications, Mundt said, "are of such a grave and serious nature as to have of this subcommittee as well as on the part of the American peo- The big marble Senate Caucus room was packed with TV and newsreel cameras, reporters and as many spectators as could be squeezed in. Big: Audience The biggest audience ever was promised for the long-heralded investigation, with millions of tele vision viewers across the nation looking on. NBC, ABC and Dumont TV networks were carrying the session CBS planned to carry excerpts later. There were seats for about 200 spectators and these were grabbed early. The room ordinarily can ac porters and the various camera the- space was taken up by re- commodate about 500 but much of men—still, movie and TV — and their apparatus. Aiding the Senators is a special staff headed by Bay H. Jenkins, a Republican lawyer from Knoxville, Term., who pledged that "the facts will be presented fully, fairly and fearlessly." McCarthy, in .a speech in Texas yesterday, referred to the hearings as "this television show of Adams vs. Cohn." But almost at the same time Sen. Mundt fR-SD), chosen to preside over the investigation, was telling newsmen here he regards McCarthy as one of six principals. He named the others as: Roy M. Cohn and Francis P. Carr, chief counsel and chief of staff, respectively, for the McCarthy subcommittee: Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens, Asst. Secretary of Defense H. Struve Hensel, Army Counselor John G. Adams. Army Leader Off Mundt arranged for morning and afternoon sessions in the big red- carpeted caucus room of the Senate -Office Building. He directed the Army to lead off, with all witnesses prepared to submit under oath to the "searching inquiry" he promised into the dispute. In brief essence, it involves: 1. The Army's charges that McCarthy, Cohn and Carr "sought by improper means" to win special Army favors for Pvt. G. David Schine, wealthy New Yorker who was an unpaid subcommittee consultant before being drafted last November. 2. McCarthy's countercharges that Stevens and Adams had tried to "discredit the investigations subcommittee and to force a discontinuance of our hearings exposing Communist infiltration in their department." 3. McCarthy's assertion that Hensel supervised preparation of the Army report about him in an at- MOX Obituaries Rites Tomorrow For John Carey Services for John C.

It scored heavy gains in the popular voting in yesterday's local elections.

As is customary, subcommittee members and their staff may question all witnesses freely. In a departure from normal procedure, the principal disputants were granted permission to cross-examine one another. McCarthy had insisted on this right. No Immunity Mundt has expressed an informal opinion that no principal could claim immunity from prosecution on any criminal charges, including perjury, which might grow out of the inquiry. Formal statements from the two sides are contradictory on many points. Mundt announced in advance he was going to hold all of the principals to instructions to submit their charges in writing, and be prepared to "stake their reputations for veracity" on their ability to prove them. The "verdict" in the inquiry, when eventually written, will be in ;he form of a report to the Senate the subcommittee's seven members—Mundt and Senators Dirksen CR-I11).

Guided by the carpenter's square, he cuts a groove along a board — then discards the square and saws along the groove. For nailing, however, he depends entirely upon touch. Adding to McConnell's physical woes is the fact that he is very deaf. He used to depend on lip reading but can't see to do that any more. in the near future.

In the past, dogs were picked up and placed in the cage for a 48-hour period during which time the owner could "bail out" his canine by paying a $1 pound fee and 25 cents for per day for feed, having the dog vaccinated and buying a city license If the animals were not redeemed within 48 hours, they were destroyed The City Council authorizes the Commisssioner in Chancery, hiring of a dog catcher in May 1951 4/15-22 and after a six week gained naiton- ON OUR METALLIC CURVED SCREEN Listen to KLCN at 10:10 a., and 4 p.m. for Ritz A Roxy Program Announcements THURSDAY & FRIDAY V* females clash for their man I PAT DUCCA.N - Directed by IRVING RAPPER Writt«n by JULIUS J.

Public utility accounts probably provide the most reliable barometer. Figures supplied by Arkansas- Missouri Power Company and the Blytheville Water Company indicate little or no population growth for the city 'during the past year. Comparative fieuros for the end of March 1953 and 1954 show that residential accounts of the water company increased from 3,394 to 3.47ft while residential accounts of Ark-Mo remained exactly the same — 4.4fi8. These figures hardly Indicate an 11 per'cent growth in population. Such n large increase would be easily doi.ect,ible in public utility accounts. • * * FURTHER indication that that population growth in Blylheville has not been nearly so great us "Consumer Markets" suggests is PAGE F1W mmmmmmim*mmmmmmmll*m revealed in a county population survey made by the Univtr»ity of Arkansas Business Bulletin. This survey, made ih IMS in comparison to 1949 figures, «sti- mates the population growth for Mississippi County over th« four- year span to be 2 per cent. It is doubtful that Blytheviile't population has increased as much as nine per cent more than th« county as a whole during th* past few years. On the question of net Income per household in Blytheville, (remember, this is income after taxes have been taken out), "Consumer Markets" figure of $3,958 is somewhat difficult to Justify. * * • THE PER capita income in Blytheville. according to the 1950 census, was $800. Using the figure of 3.21 persons per household, as given by the 1950 census, this means that In 1950 income per household was $2.568 — $1.390 less than the "Consumer Markets" estimate for the past year. By transposing household income to a per capita basis, still using the 1950 census figure, total income in Blytheville would average out at $1,233 per person according to the publication's estimate of income. This would mean an increase per capita over 1953 of $433. There seems little indication in the general growth and development of BlytheviMe to substantiate such a large increase over a three-year period.
