THURSDAY, MAY JO, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN McCarthy-Army Probe Has Taken Many Strange Twists and Turns By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Even Thurston the magician would get eyestrain trying to watch the rabbit to see what hat it was in in the Senate investigation of the Army-McCarthy fight. The hearings, which started April 22, seemed all but dead last Monday after they were- shut down for a week. They're supposed to start up again next Monday. That's no sure bet. The inquiry began as an attempt to find out who was lying- Secretary of the Army Stevens and his aides of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) and his aides—in their bushel basket of charges and countercharges. But now McCarthy says that .from his viewpoint "the all-important thing is the motive—who started this, who is responsible for the Army charges." After some confusion on who did v start it, Stevens yesterday said he was responsible. He'll probably have to repeat that under oath. If and when he does, McCarthy may say he's still not convinced. If he insists finding the motive takes precedence over finding the truth or falsity of the charges, he may use it as a reason for walking out without testifying. Can't Ute Force No one yet has explained how the Senate subcommittee making the investigation could force McCarthy to testify or even attend the inquiry if he didn't want to. He couldn't be arrested and brought in. McCarthy is in Washington on Senate business. And under the Constitution no senator can be arrested while serving as a senator except for treason, a felony or a breach of the peace. However, he has never said he wouldn't testify, and he has taken the stand once briefly already. Yet after all this time only two HOLLAND NEWS By Mrs. Voris Workman Holland News A total of 783 people of the Holland district had chest x-rays made Thursday at the mobile unit.

Mrs. Harris is formerly of Kennett. of the main witnesses—Stevens and Army Counselor John G. Adams—have been called on for full testimony and neither of them has finished yet. Four main witnesses remain to be called: McCarthy; his subcommittee's chief counsel, Roy M. Conn; his chief of staff, Francis P. Carr; and H. Struve Hensel, assistant secretary of defense. Before they ever finish, if the hearing lasts that long, squads of other witnesses undreamed of now may be pulled into the case. Nevertheless, Sen. Mundt (R- SD), acting subcommittee chairman who said the hearings will begin again Monday, predicted they'd wind up in about 10 days after that. That may turn out to be as dreamy as the predictions made before the hearings started the first time: that they'd be over in 10 days or two weeks. Many Hours Lost This investigation has taken strange twists and turns, including the many hours lost by the investigating senators in their search for a way to save time. The strangest came when President Eisenhower got into the picture: He refused—on the constitutional grounds that the Senate had no right to nose into private conversations among his advisers—to let the Senate subcommittee question some of those advisers. Adams said he had talked with them about alleged improper pressures from McCarthy's office, and was advised to list them in writing. The chronology later grew into the Army charges now before the senators. McCarthy cried, in effect: "Who really pulled the strings? Did Stevens and Adams and Hensel make the charges against me and my staff on their own or were they pushed into it? Whom am I fighting here?" The other senators said that was a good question. They wanted to find out, too, and suspended the hearings last Monday to see if Eisenhower could be persuaded to let them question his advisers. He still said no yesterday and Stevens jumped in to say the Army alone was responsible for the charges. It was after hearing this Adams Appliance Co. Inc.
