TUESDAY, MAY 11, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Collisions wi^h Sen. McCarthy Have Been Damagingto Army By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — For 13 days as a witness at the Senate inquiry into Sen. McCarthy's row with Pentagon officials, Secretary of the Army Stevens has been sitting upright, and just as dignified, as a man on a high-handled bicycle. He pedals' along, trying to avoid the holes as McCarthy leads him down a new road with questions. He says yes or no or says he doesn't remember or gets a little indignant. When they collide, it's like a bicycle hitting a truck. McCarthy and Stevens have been about equally humorless. There have been few attempts to subject McCarthy to doses of humor or ridicule. Stevens tried to be funny yesterday at McCarthy's expense. That's when he bumped into the senator. McCarthy rode right over him. McCarthy was digging back into history eight and nine years before Stevens became secretary to try to show there had been a lot of Communists in the Army. He cited Earl Browder, onetime head of the Communist'party. Browder, McCarthy said, once testified, that in 1944 and 1945 there had been 13,000 Communists m uniform. In a mood rare for him in dealing with the senators, Stevens shot back with a question that was sarcastic but hardly witty: "Does this mean I'm a Communist, senator?" McCarthy turned away with contempt. His reply, while not witty either, was an obvious attempt to flatten Stevens in public. He said: "That's awfully funny, isn't it, Mr. Secretary? I doubt very much they would accept you as a member." Stevens probably won't try that approach again. But since Stevens is clearly not a comical man, it's still not demonstrated how McCarthy can handle himself when a real wit collides with him. It was thought' that maybe Joseph N. Welch, the Boston lawyer hired by the Army to cross-examine McCarthy, might be the one to needle him into exasperation. Welch has delighted TV watchers with his light touches and he hasn't had a thorough chance to work on McCarthy. But he's had one. And his lightness got smashed up against McCarthy. McCarthy had taken the stand briefly last week to explain how he came into possession of some confidential FBI information on a question of espionage at Ft. Monmouth, N. J. Although McCarthy had just sworn to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, he blandly told the investigating senators he would not reveal the name of the Army officer who had given him the information. Studied Contempt Welch could have reminded the senator that he had just sworn to tell the whole truth. Instead, Welch asked the stenographer to read back the oath. ' McCarthy turned away and told Welch to cut out the nonsense. For the rest of Welch's questioning, McCarthy deliberately showed more contempt for him than anyone at the hearing so far. McCarthy, having seen some of Welch's light touches earlier in the hearing, may have worked out a plan for meeting the Bostonian's technique, deft or otherwise: steady, studied contempt. Welch has been far from as active as he might have been in this inquiry so far. Many times he could have interrupted McCarthy's grinding questioning of Stevens just to give Stevens a rest. Instead he sat looking quizzical. It may turn out that Welch is a lawyer's lawyer, a courtroom counsel with an acute ability to ask just a few questions that delight other lawyers and make fine legal points. That may be just the wrong tactic to use on McCarthy, who's been rocketing through these hearings like a fast-moving van, smashing into witnesses and fellow senators with equal energy and impartiality.

He's using all the eyes he could get to take in the charms of Scheril London, at a ball held by the Art Students League in New York City.

Iff)—"FBI agents ended a $200,000 extortion scheme agaittflt 30 Dallas Jewish families last night by arresting a mud- spattered man as ,he picked up a package supposedly containing the money. "Hie agents closed in on him as he scrambled down a railroad embankment at nearby Garland to retrieve the package. The man fired one shot at close range but missed. Text of the extortion letter sent to the families, containing many references to "you Jews," was released by J. K. Mumford, agent in charge of the Dallas FBI office. "You Jews to pay $200,000," the letter began. "How many you Jews be dead before you pay. Acid- dynamite-fire-guns will make you pay." The letter continued in similar chopped-word fashion. Disarmed and taken to FBI headquarters, the man said his name was James Jones, a gaunt six-footer weighing about 145 pounds, was unkempt and spattered with mud from yesterday's rains as he was brought to the FBI office. Mother Finds Son Hanging In Garage WBBT ORANGE, N. J. (/P)—A mother returning from a YWCA meeting last night found her son, a 13-year-old Boy Scout, hanging in the family garage. Authorities said the victim, Robert Mowel. apparently hanged himself accidently while practicing knotting for a troop contest. Police said he must have climbed a ladder, which was found at a- 45- degree angle, and thrown one end of the rope over a beam. He may have been hoisted up and hanged when one of the knots caught on the beam. Mrs. Helen Mowel saw the body hanging as she entered the driveway. She ran and her husband Thomas rush to the boy. While Mowel held the body, Mrs. Mowel cut the rope. Artificial respiration by police failed to revive the boy. Mowel is controller for the Wall Street Journal.

Runaway Youth Lives 12 Days In Unused Subway Cable Room By JOHN BAUSMAN NEW YORK 1/tt—A teen-age runaway, who for 12 days kept house n an unused subway cable-splicing room, has been evicted from his hideout 30 feet below a busy street intersection In Brooklyn. The youngster, Robert C. Llnd- ahl. 15, had equipped his neat bachelor quarters with an old auto seat for a bed, a rickety wire chair and other comforts salvaged from a dump. A picture of a basket of flowers adorned the wall. The boy told police ne had discovered the underground room .vhile playing with friends, and decided to move there in order to escape school and his father's rule about being home by 8:30 at night. Police discovered Robert asleep in his secret lodgings yesterday after a friend who had been entertained there let the boy's family now where he was. It had been a lot of fun, Robert said, "but I won't do it again. The police said they'll put me in a real hole—with bars—next time." Noise No ObsUcla Tne noise of traffic clanking across a manhole cover overhead didn't disturb him after the first night, he reported. During the day Robert would push aside a sliding steel door and slip out of the subway tunnel where it emerged into an open cut near the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Then he would head for Manhattan, where he collected as much as $3 a day in handouts and tips for running errands. However, his resources had dwindled to 2 cents by the time he was sent home. Empty bottles and cans in his hideout showed his meals there consisted of root beer and beans. He had religious candles for light and a can of alcohol for cooking. Back home—where he lives with his grandmother, three sisters and his father, a widower cab driver- Robert was given a bath and a hearty meal. His father, grinning over the escapade, packed the shaggy-haired boy off to a barber shop. Cut Miffing AM Battery Costs!

Second St BlythtvllU Arkontot trailer Everyone jvnows The big car eases out from the boulevard and comes to a soft, silent stop. A man steps out from behind the wheel and heads for his destination. The license plate reveals him to be t person from another state—a "stranger," 10 to speak. But the golden crest on the hood of his motor car tells everyone something about him. For it is the famous crest of Cadillac—and no man is wholly a stranger, wherever he be, when he drivtt this distinguished car. Any owner can tell you, out of his own personal experience, that a Cadillac is a virtual "letter of introduction" for the man who sits at itt wheel. He becomes, in a sense, the "stranger" everyone knows—a member of the most distinguished motoring fraternity in all the world. This priceleis upect of Cadillac ownership it but one of the many rewards which come to the ownen of Cadillac can. In fact, it might even be considered an txtra dividend—for it comet in addition^ the car's great and distinguishing beauty ... its brilliant and inspiring performance ... its magnificent comfort and luxury ... and iti remarkable economy of operation. As a matter of fact, it would be a formidable task to recite even a basic portion of Cadillac's cardinal virtues for 1954—for the car is superlative in nery respect ind hat been markedly advanced in every phase of appearance and operation. Of coune, it would take only an hour on tht highway to understand what it all meant in terms of pleasure and satisfaction—and that't why we suggest that you come in and set us—toon* Why not make it today?
