WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE mam McCarthy Row Costs Nation Prestige - Ike But President Wants It Concluded Not Discontinued (Continued from Page 1) it Is still going on. The President's conference covered a wide range of other topics, among them: Taft-Hartley law amendments: The President said he has not had a chance to study an amendment proposed by Sen. Goldwater (R- Ariz) designed to give the states greater control over labor-manage- men trelations. Eisenhower added that the matter of the rights of states to act in such cases has been the subject of many discussions. So long as the rights assured in the Taft-Hartley law are not violated, he said, the rights'of the states in such fields as preservation of health and keeping the peace should not be interfered with. Not Invited Democratic Conference: Eisenhower said with a smile he hasn't been invited to the Democratic party conference opening here today with Former President Truman and other top party officials in attendance. His remark was in reply to a question as to whether . he had any message for the Democrats. Farm Program: The President said he had never heard of reports —described to him by a newsman —that he was willing to accept a one-year extension of the present law providing for government price support, of basic farm commodities at 90 per cent of parity. That law is scheduled to expire at the end of the year, and the President has recommended a switch to a flexible price support program in place of the rigid 90 per cent. Business Conditions: At present, Eisenhower declared, there is a preponderance of favorable signs for business, as compared with the unfavorable indications in the picture.

(Continued from Page 1) Carthy document "a perfect phony" and "a carbon copy of precisely nothing." Sen. Symington (D-Mo) suggested that Collier be careful not to call the McCarthy document a "carbon copy." Symington said Collier ought to speak of it as "the alleged carbon copy." "I'd like to know who alleges this is a carbon copy," McCarthy broke in. "We have never alleged this is a carbon copy." McCarthy said yesterday, and repeated today, that he did not get the letter from the FBI. He told reporters last night he got it "from Army sources" but refused to be more specific. May Not Find Out Sen. Mundt (R-SD), presiding, said yesterday he was "sure we are not going to try to find out" how the letter came into McCarthy's possession. McClellan said in a separate interview: : , "If this letter is a security matter, someone has violated the law. I wouldn't want it in my possession." McClellan said "it might be of considerable interest" for Army i:\ Diligence and the FBI to try to learn how any outsider could get a copy. Secretary of the Army Stevens, called back for a 10th day of questioning concerning the bitter row, was under orders to report whether the original letter is in Army files. Ray H. Jenkins, the subcommittee's special counsel, had orders to ask FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover whether he would object to making public the letter. McCarthy, saying it bore Hoover's signature, called it "one of a series of letters from the FBI warning of the tremendous danger" of suspected Communists working in radar laboratories, written before Stevens took office. Said it Was Ignored But McCarthy declared it had been "ignored" by Stevens after he did take office in 1053. He said this bore a relation to his charge that Stevens sought to halt his own searches for subversives. This is the 10th day of the hearings, called to explore for the truth in the charges and countercharges McCarthy and top Pentagon officials have aimed at one another. Stevens .and John G. Adams, Army counsellor, have accused McCarthy and two subcommittee staff aides of using "improper" pressures in efforts to win favored treatment in the Army for Pvt. G. David Schine, a subcommittee aide until drafted. A move yesterday to shortcut the hearings to an early end fruitless. McCarthy told reporters he does not know how much longer he will question Stevens. He stuck to his charge that Joseph N. Welch, special counsel to Stevens and Adams, had "welshed" on an agreement that McCarthy would take the witness chair as the next and prob ably the final witness.

(flV- The Arabs lost their fight in the U. N. Security Council last night for an immediate censure of Israel but backed down on previous threats to boycott general debate on the tense situation between Jordan and the Jewish nation. Instead, Lebanon's Charles Malik, only Arab representative on the 11-nation council, opened the debate with a new demand for action against Israel. He called for U. N. members to sever economic, communication and diplomatic relations with Israel if necessary to stop border raids into Jordan. Observers here at U. N. headquarters gave the Lebanese proposal little chance of winning council approval. ROW Two Cars Collide At Intersection Here Two cars collided at Hearn and division Streets about noon today when one of the vehicles failed to stop at a stop sign, city Officers J. R.

Prayer Room Okayed WASHINGTON (&)— The Senate has voted to fix up a small room at the Capitol as a chapel "for prayer and meditation" for members of Congress. The House adopted the measure last summer and it now goes to the White House. termed that false. In effect this plan would have eliminated all the "principals" except Stevens and McCarthy. Sen. Dirksen (R-I11), author of the rejected speedup plan, served notice he would move today to have night and Saturday hearings. Mundt predicted Saturday sessions would result. But McClellan told reporters he doubts that Saturday or night sessions would shorten the proceedings. "I see no evidence now that it is the purpose of all concerned to expedite the hearings," he said. "From that you can draw your own conclusions." (Continued from Pago 1) conduct of 14 presented a "serious question concerning their continued usefulness in the Ahv Force." None of the 83 was named. Twelve of the 14 men who must prove their "continued usefulness to the Air Force" are officers, the other two enlisted men. Nine of them allegedly made false gprm warfare confessions while held prisoner. So did 27 of the 69 who got a clean bill of health. But the special bourd found that other undisclosed actions of the 14 cast doubt on their future value to the Air Force. In explaining its findings, the Air Force board cited "inadequate and confusing" briefing and instructions given American fighting men as to how they should conduct themselves if captured by the enemy. As far as germ warfare confessions were concerned, the board said there was a "lack of direction and even appreciation of the problem throughout all levels of command even after these confessions were public knowledge." Unlike the Dickenson court- martial, the Air Force panel opiM-;Ued in secrecy. None of the 83 suspected men appeared in person before it. An Air Force spokesman said the 14 officers and airmen have been told they can resign or retire, if they are eligible to do so. They also have been notified that they can demand to appear before a board of inquiry- ' Collide at Intersection James Rambo and Dr. F. E. Utley were involved in a traffic collision Monday afternoon at the corner of Division and Holly causing some damage to fenders of both cars, city police reported this morning.
