FRIDAY, APRIL 38, 1954 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Transcript of Phone Conversation Raises Wrath of McCarthy (Continued from Page 1) out battle plans he hopes will bring back before the television cameras and into black headlines his charge that the Army has "coddled" some Communists. No Coddling On that point, Stevens declared yesterday: *"I want to make it clear that the United States Army does not coddle Communists. This committee knows that. The American people know that." Specifically.McCarthy was said to be whetting his inquiries for a review of the promotion and honorable discharge of Maj. Irving Pe- ress. Army dentist accused by McCarthy of having had Communist ties. Peress himself said in New York Wednesday night that "no one was more surprised than I" by the Commodity And Stock Markets— New York Cotton (12:30 quotation*) May 3448 3453 3443 3452 July 3439 3441 3436 3440 Oct 3388 3393 3387 3390 Dec 3385 3388 3383 3387 Ntw Orleans Cotton May 3445 3451 3444 3449 July 3441 3442 3438 3440 Oct 3389 3392 3388 3389 Dec 3383 3386 3383 3385 Chicago Soybeans Open High Low Close May ... 401% 403% 398V 2 398 3 4 July ... 3951/2 397V2 392V 2 394 Sept. ... 285 ! / 2 288V2 283=4 283'2 Nov. ... 263 263y 2 260% 261% Chkago Wheat Open Hig-h Low Close May ... 212% 214% 212% 212V 8 July ... 207V4 207% 206 206 Chicago Corn Open High Low Close May ... 151 7 / 8 152% 151 M, 151% July ... 152y s 152y 2 151% 151 7 / 8 New York Stocks (72:45 quotation*) A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper B?th Steel Chrysler Coca-Cola Gen Electric , Gen Motors Montgomery Ward N Y Central Int Harvester Republic Steel Radio Socony Vacuum Studebaker Standard of N J Texas Corp Sears U S Steel Sou Pac 164 7-8 61 35 1-4 62 3-8 59 1-2 120 113 1-8 68 18 61 1-8 20 7-8 30 7-8 51 1-2 27 1-8 44 7-8 16 1-2 86 1-4 69 3-4 63 3-8 45 5-8 41 3-8 senators accusations. All McCarthy would say in advance of today's session was that: "Sooner or later the American people will begin wondering why we are spending so much time on the case of a private who is still a private, instead of investigating communism." The private McCarthy meant is Schine, unpaid subcommittee consultant before he was drafted last November. Stevens told the inquiry group yesterday that McCarthy and his staff chief, Roy M. Conn, had made "a persistent, tireless effort" to get special Army treatment for Schine. McCarthy is chairman of the subcommittee, but he has stepped aside for this investigation, while retaining the right — also granted to Army representatives — to question all witnesses. Stevens, wearing a gray suit, told the senators solemnly:" "I may say that during my tenure as secretary of the Army, there is no record that matches this persistent, tireless effort to obtain special consideration and privileges for this man." 65 Phone Calk He said there were 65 telephone calls from McCarthy and members of his staff to the Department of the Army about Schine. He said there were 19 personal meetings at which the topic came up. Stevens said requests in Schine's behalf "ranged from several for a direct (officer's*) commission before he was inducted into the Army to many for special assignments, relief from routine duties such .as KP, extra time off and special visitor privileges." And he said Schine got five times as many passes as the average draftee at Ft. Dix, N. J., where he took basic training. Although Chairman Mundt (R- SD> said the subcommittee made "remarkably fine progress" in its first day. some puzzlement was voiced privately among members about the attitude of 'Counsel Jenkins. Jenkins, a Knoxville. Term., lawyer, caught some members by surprise when he said in questioning Maj. Gen. Miles Reber that "at least 33 civilian employes at Ft. Monmouth (N. J.) were either fired or suspended because of their Communist leanings or background'-' as a result of McCarthy's investigations there. Stevens contended in his statement that McCarthy had given the impression "that there was much current espionage s at Ft. Monmouth, when such is not the case."Many of those suspended have been re-employed. On the other hand, Jenkins several times sought to shut off a series of questions by McCarthy, on the grounds that they were not relevant or that the senator was making statements rather than putting questions.

INDOCHINA (Continued from Page 1) west corner yesterday by fierce counterattacks. The French claimed the enemy suffered "heavy losses." But the rebels came back early- today with renewed attacks at this sector, trying for a breakthrough to the heart and nerve center of the fortress' shrinking perimeter. Already, by a series of night assaults and furious digging and thrusting, the Vietminh had managed to draw their steel ring tighter around the fortress. They have cut its girth from a broad 6-by-4-mile area to one not more than a mile and a quarter across. The sudden Vietminh infantry I assaults came yesterday after al- J most two days of intermittent' rains. When the skies cleared for a time yesterday. American-supplied B26 bombers plastered the rebels dug into a hill at the southeastern rim of the fortress. The French claimed "probably several companies were destroyed. Pilots reported they blew rebels by the score out of their trenches in the hill with LOOO-pound bombs. French army sources here described today's fighting at Dien Bien Phu as "bitter and furious." The French, Moroccans. Foreign Legionnaires and Vietnamese Charged over the top of newly dug trenches to strike at, the rebels with hand grenades and bayonets. McCARRAN (Continued from Page 1) the First and Fifth amendments. Disposition of the constitutional questions, they old the court, "will determine wh ether traditional \ American liberties, already severely restricted, can survive. For the act imposes an unparalleled regimentation of speech, press and assembly." Even if the act is otherwise constitutional, they added, the board's registration order cannot be enforced. "Any indictment for failure to register pursuant to the order would have to be dismissed as an unconstitutional attempt to compel self-incrimination," the brief said. The Justice Department and the Subversive Activities Control Board urged the court to limit its review to just one section of the act—that providing for an order directing the party to register. Say Penalties Not Involved The stiff criminal penalties provided for failure to register, their brief argued, are not involved. What they said, in effect, was that the court should concern itself only with the registration provision, leaving everything else to be ' decided if and when someone is indicted for failure to register. "The requirement of disclosure of foreign domination does not infringe First Amendment rights," the Justice Department, and the board contended. "No speech as such, no association as such, no action as such is prohibited by registration/' they said. "The mere fact that disclosure may result in loss of membership does not constitute a violation of a protected right. The Bill of Rights was not meant to give sanctuary to deceptions which are themselves violative of civil liberties. "The fact that revelation of its true character will make it more difficult for petitioner—the Communist party—to function does not make the statute one of outlawry."
