BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 6, 1954 McCarthy, Army Battle Boils Over (Continued from Page 1) material was given him by an Army intelligence officer. He refused to name the officer. The senator swore too that he had believed it was in fact a letter from Hoover to Boiling at the time he offered it to the investigating committee, but had learned after offering it that it was no a letter. He said this information came to him from Roy Cohn, general counsel to his investigating committee. He didn't say how Conn learned this. In today's exchange, McCarthy charged Symington was "trying to punish those who dare to give out information about espionage in 'secret radar laboratories" (Ft.

J.) Symington retorted he would not take the subcommittee's time to discuss with McCobb whether "my record for building forces against Communist advances is equal or superior to his." Symington was first secretary of the Air Force and later chairman of the National Security Resources Board. Symington repeated that the letter brought out by McCarthy was "fraudulent" in that the information had been altered to make it appear as a letter when it was not. He said he did not question whether the facts in the paper were accurate. Waste of Time Ray H. Jenkins, special counsel for the investigating subcommittee, brought an end to the outburst with a demand that no fur- her discussion be permitted. He said the letter was explored fully yesterday and further /'charges | and counter-charges would be a waste of time." Before the senators dropped it, however. Symington said every effort should be made to find out who gave McCarthy the information from the FBI report. Symington said the government agencies represented on the intelligence advisory committee "may have in their midst someone who is willing to distribute secret information to unauthorized people." McCarthy rumbled that when Symington and Jackson walked out from his subcommittee las year, along with McClellan, he had considered it a loss. But now, he said, he thought th return of Symington and Jackson to the subcommittee was a loss There was no argument over McClellan's proposal to send the transcript of hearings to the Justice Department. Chairman Mundt (R-SD) said the committee already had planned to do so, but had not sent the transcripts to the department yet. McClellan proposed 'hat each transcript be sent to the Justice Department in the future as soon as it is prepared. This was part of his motion as adopted. While McClellan offered no explanations in the hearing of his rnpve, he previously had questioned whether any violation fol was involved in connection with McCarthy's receiving the FBI ma ;erial. McClellan told reporters ,hat was a matter the Justice Department should decide.

New Test Gives Quicker Check On Vaccine PITTSBURGH OR—A new test will make possible a quicker check on the effectiveness of the Salk polio vaccine. Dr. Jonas E. Salk, who developed the vaccine, and Dr. J. S. Younger, both of the University of Pittsburgh, explained the new test at a session yesterday of the Society of American Bacteriologists. They said the test employs color hanges to show whether the blood of an inoculated child has developed sufficient antibodies to kill live polio viruses. Dr. Salk said the new testing techniques has already been made available to laboratories cooperating in the current nationwide field rials of his vaccine. Briefly, the test consists of placing blood sample from a vaccinated child in .a test tube with polio virus and other substances. The test tube is then placed in an ncubator for seven days. If the mixture turns from red to yellow, t means the child, theoretically t least, has developed sufficient ntibodies in his blood to kill the iolio virus. The test, says Dr. Salk, will help n determining the number of in- culations needed and the best pacing of the shots for maximum ffect. Harrison Gets Navy Award TOKYO (/P)—Lt. Gen. William K.

It was unclear who held control. Government radio stations in Asuncion, ihe Paraguayan capital remained off the air, but private sources gave varying accounts o: the revolt which apparently broke out yesterday. A private radio station said loyal government forces succeeded in quelling the revolt. It added that Police Chief L. Petit was killed in the fighting. An account from Clorinda, on the Argentine side of the Paraguayan border across from Asuncion, said the insurgents held the capital. It said Chaves and bis ministers had taken refuge in Asuncion's military academy after the rebels seized control of communications. 3 -Man Government The Clorinda report said the rebels had set up a three-man overnment in the capital. Other reports said several government leaders were killed in ighting yesterday including Gen. Alfredo Stroesner, commander of Paraguay's armed forces. These reports said a cavalry division, about 500 men, had sparked the revolt and that loyal troops and police had rallied to Chaves' defense. Paraguay had enjoyed relative calm since 1950. There have been reports of harsh government measures against political opponents. Chaves, 74, took over as pro- r isional president in September 949 after toppling Felipe Molas jopez in a bloodless coup. Chaves' rise stemmed from discord in the ruling Colorado party, Paraguay's the democratic faction. Chaves was confirmed in office in 1950 elections in which he was the only candidate. His 1949 takeover had been the sixth administration change through revolt or bloodless coup in 17 months.

British Queen Reported Slim But Healthy LONDON M*—The British press assured its readers today that Queen Elizabeth II—although somewhat skinny—is in sound health as she nears the end of her long Commonwealth voyage. Two papers said she lost only five pounds. Another speculated that she had been deliberately slimming. The Daily Sketch threw some subjects into a tizzy yesterday by remarking that the young monarch had lost weight and "looks fine- drawn and tired." It drove home the point with two pictures—one taken before the six-month royal tour began and the other Tuesday at Malta. In the latter photograph the Queen looked almost angular. The Daily Mirror reported • from from Valletta, however, that at the royal ball last night Elizabeth "looked positively radiant." "Since the start of her gigantic tour, it's true she lost five pounds in weight," the Mirror said. "And she had a little chill at Aden a few days ago which she has shaken off. But the Queen is not tired in any sense that can cause alarm." The Daily Herald also estimated that Elizabeth had lost about five pounds, but said this "isn't surprising in view of the heat during her strenuous tour." The Herald quoted a member of the royal entourage as declaring, "The Queen is feeling perfectly fit."

"Policy, at least in Washington, seems to have been at the mercy of every prevailing current of sentiment." The independent Daily Express called it "simply mischievous" to .say a split now exists. "A plan to intervene in the Indochina war was never clearly defined," the Express declared, "nor was it probable that the American Congress, let alone Britain, would endorse it." Direct Aid Ruled Out U. S. administration officials have virtually ruled out any di- Irect American intervention in Indochina unless Britain agrees to join as part of a coalition to protect Southeast Asia against Red conquest. Britain served notice she opposed such an alliance in advance of the Indochina negotiations with the Communists at Geneva. Prime Minister Churchill also told Parliament his government opposes any united military action in Indochina while the Geneva talks are still on. The British attitude spelled defeat for U. S. Secretary of State Dulles' hopes of confronting the Reds at Geneva with a united front committed to possible intervention in Indochina.

The Moscow broadcast heard here said the "complete and final defeat of colonizers" is shaping up in Asia and "the situation has developed far from what the U. 8. secretary of state wanted." "Representatives of many countries taking part in the conference prefer finding ways of agreement which lead to a peaceful settlement of disputed international problems to that of agreement regarding new, aggressive ,plans," the broadcast said. "In particular, the British delegation prefers to adopt a more careful attitude than that which the State Department has outlined."
