MONDAY, MAY 17, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER Question in McCarthy Case : Did Ike Direct Army to Fight? By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The No. 1 question now in the Senate hearing on the McCartny-Army row is whether President Eisenhower had a direct part in calling Sen. McCarthy's hand. J It's a question the administration may never permit to be answered, on the ground that a Senate committee has no right prying into what goes on in the inner councils of the White House. It was Army Counsel John G. Adams who last week opened a brand new trail which leads right into the White House and stops just short of Eisenhower's door. Adams didn't pursue it across the threshhold. If it was Eisenhower who pulled the trigger, it would explain a couple of things about Secretary of the Army Stevens, who took on '. cCarthy in a public showdown: 1. Through all the questioning Rioting DACCA, East Pakistan W) — A possible toll of 300 killed and 300 injured was reckoned today as a result of wild rioting Saturday among workers in the Adahjee jute mills at nearby Narayangunj. Troops sent in to patrol the mill area, 20 miles south of here, reportedly had restored order between hostile factions of local Bengali laborers and non-Bengali workers from West Pakistan. A curfew is being enforced nightly. Minor disputes which- broke out between the factions Friday night were fanned into fierce violence by Communist agitators, according to reliable sources. Reports from the area said police had recovered 24 bodies, including those of women and children. A search still is going on along river banks and in ponds near the center of fighting. The injured in hospitals numbered 263, it was reported. In Karachi, Prime Minister Mohammed Ali held an emergency Cabinet meeting last night and later sent State Defense Minister Sardar Amir Azam Khan to Dacca to confer with East Pakistani officials. East Pakistan is isolated from the Western part of the country by over 1,000 miles of Indian territory. A group of influential politicians in Karachi, including leading members of Parliament, demanded in a press statement that Ali's government, take strong action against Reds in Pakistan. Karachi's English-1 a n g u a g e newspaper Dawn reported that Communists "have been pouring into East Pakistan ithout much difficulty" since the state's united front government came to power in March. The coalition, which defeated the Moslem League slate backed by the Karachi governments, has Communist backing.

Hubbard & Son FURNITURE and needling by McCarthy at the hearings, Stevens remained mild. That may bt his natural state. But he hardly acted like a man who thought his public career might be decided by the outcome of the hearings. If he knew Eisenhower was behind him, he had nothing to fear. 2. Some of the Republicans, led by Sen. Dirksen of Illinois and with the agreement of McCarthy, sought to bring a quick end to the public view of the hearings which can't but hurt the Republican party. But Stevens said they should go on to the bitter end. Under Pressure Stevens, a Republican himself, must have been under pressure to go along with Dirksen. But if the White House wanted this to be a real showdown with McCarthy, he could calmly insist on going on. Counsel John Adams said that when McCarthy pushed the Army he sat down and talked it over last January with three men who are among Eisenhower's closest advisers and who, perhaps more than any others, steered him in the 1952 campaign. These were Sherman Adams, Eisenhower's assistant and his right hand in the White House; Atty. Gen. Bjownell: and Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., American ambassador to the United Nations. John Adams said he told them two things: 1. McCarthy, in his search for Communists in the Army, said he wanted members of the Army's loyalty review board to answer questions. John Adams said he was advised at this meeting to refuse to let McCarthy quiz the board members. 2. That McCarthy and his staff had pressured the Army for special favors for Pvt. G. David Schine and that McCarthy's chief counsel, Roy M. Cohn, threatened vengeance on the Army if Schine didn't get preference. John Adams said Sherman Adams told him to write down the times and places. It was such a chronology, later made public, which was the basis of Army charges against McCarthy and Cohn which, when McCarthy denied them and cried blackmail, brought on the Senate investigation. Eisenhower and McCarthy have tiptoed around each other. Neither has criticized the other by name, although McCarthy has ripped into the administration itself. Eisenhower criticism of McCarthy has been oblique, not direct. The President has gone out of his way — publicly — to keep peace with McCarthy, even to pulling the rug last year from under Harold E. Stassen, head of the Foreign Operations Administration. Stassen told McCarthy he was undermining the administration's efforts to shut off trade with Red China, but Eisenhower quickly infringed, not undermined. Stassen said Stassen meant McCarthy had backed water. He said he had meant infringed. The recollection of what happened to Stassen may have deterred any desire Stevens might have had to stiff-arm McCarthy last fall when he says he began to feel the senator was pressuring the Army. Throughout that period, he says, he did resist the pressure to help Schine. But it wasn't until after Adams had his conference with Eisenhower's three advisers that Stevens and the Army began to move toward a public fight with McCarthy.

(.'Fl—-Extracts from.the "ghosts" of germs may eventually provide an improved vaccine to protect against tuberculosis, a scientist of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research said today. Dr. Frank W. Weiss told the National Tuberculosis Assn. (NT A that significant protection against tuberculosis had been achieved in mice with a chemical extract derived from human tuberculosis germs which first had been killed by chemical means. ~And this work, he told a reporter, "opens up at least an approach" towards developing a vaccine for human administration without using- either "live" tuberculosis bugs or even the entire bodies of killed ones. He .said a vaccine called BCG, which uses "live" but nonvirulcnt germs, is already in fairly wide UNO, and thai; in some purls of Europe a vaccine made of "killed" but intact, sperms ha.s been used. But he declared that each type has actual or potential drawbacks. Weiss prepared a report, jointly with Dr. Rene J. Uubo.s. for the NTA's 50th anniversary meeting. It came .not Ion;; 1 after Dr. James Perkins, manatrin/:: director of the NTA, had declared in a keynoUnr; statement, that while substantial progress has been made in the treatment, of tubereulosos, "we are not preventing tuberculosis any- It Isn't Difficult Says Nations' LOUISVILLE, Ky.

A good clue, though. Is that both of her paivnts. Mr. and Mrs. Winston G. Gibson, were valodictori- ans of their hivjh school graduating classes in Vermont.
