AUCKLAND (B — Three children were killed and 26 other persons received minor injuries today in the flaming" crash of a New Zealand National Airways airliner. The big plane, arriving from Christchurch, limped in a few feet over the sea in obvious trouble. The DC3 sideswiped a house, then swerved into a clump of trees and burst into flames. An elderly couple living in the house narrowly escaped injury when one wing of the plane knifed into their bedroom. the civilian victim of the blast. It was believed, however, that he was one of the plotters . The Foreign Ministry issued a communique yesterday accusing the United States of spreading ports bout arms purchses from te Communists. The statement denied Guatemala ' had received any guns made in Russia or Poland and added it was no concern of the iJnited States if it had. The statement said also U. S. guns were going to several governments which have an "unfriendly and aggressive" attitude toward Guatemala. The statement declared, also, the United States had committed an "act of aggression" against Guatemala by trying to "wear down the defensive capacity of the Guatemalan army through an arms boycott." McCarthy-Army (Continued from Page 1) situation, criticized the order again last nig-ht at a Chicago plane stop on his way to Wisconsin. He termed it "peculiar" because Eisenhower "wants the public to 1 have all the facts—except those on the one meeting." He said the Senate hearings are causing the Republican party's "slow and painful suicide before the television cameras," He "refused to disclose what course he would adopt when the hearings resume Monday, however, saying: he would not discuss the matter until Baptist Hospital in Memphis, will be conducted in Batesville at 3 p.m. [tomorrow with burial there. Mr. Barrett, 54, is survived by his wife and several children. He had resided here Several years and was an insurance agent. In Washington, observers pointed out that, although Guatemala had denied receiving arms made in Russia or Poland, she had not denied getting them from Iron Curtain countries. other tonight before the Fort Atkinson, Wis., Chamber of Commerce. Later, at Sturgeon Bay, Wis., McCarthy said "I will not attack Ike" at Fort Atkinson for what he termed the President's "Iron Curtain" order. But the senator said again he thought Eisenhower was acting on bad advice. McCarthy also said if the hearings continue next week he would like to have subpoenaed for tes- Services Conducted For All m on Child Services for" John Allen Allmon, seven-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Gaston Allmon of Clear Lake, who diea yesterday at the parents home, were to be conducted at 2 p.m. today at Clear Lake Baptist Church by the Rev.

Army Counsellor John G. Adams has testified he talked to these newsmen about alleged improper pressures from McCarthy's office before the Army charges became public. Adams said he gave the information to the newsmen in confidence and they did not violate his trust. Stevens, addressing a Montana Stockgrowers Assn. convention at Miles City, Mont., yesterday declined direct comment on the controversy but said "the President has given me all the backing that I could have asked." He said the answer was "a strong no" to questions as to whether he was sorry had gone over and trimmed out irrelevant material. "Test of Good Faith" "It seems to me that this is a test of the good faith of the Democrats on the committee," McCarthy said. In observing that he would not criticize the President personally, McCarthy repeated that he still though Mr. Eisenhower was receiving bad advice on the whole controversy. McCarthy said it would be normal to expect that an executive would receive advice on both extremes of a question and thereby have information which would enable him to arrive at a decision somewhere between them. However, in this case, McCarthy said, all the advice seems to be coming from one extreme. McCarthy said that during trfe subcommittee's investigation of a leged subversive activity in Army installations and defense plants, . .

So, he said, "are most of those who are protecting them —the civilians in the Pentagon"— and mentioned Army Secretary Stevens, Army Counsel John Adams and Asst. Defense Secretary Struve Hensel. "I want this stressed, our trouble is mainly with the civilians in the Pentagon." McCarthy said.

The fire, of undetermined origin, raced through the 250 foot long 60 stall barn located on the western side of the track. Five stablehands and grooms suffered minor burns when they attempted to lead the horses to safety. Only two horses were seen to leave the barn before it fell to the flames.

Molotov has declard that political problms should b takn up con currntly with the military. The agenda reportedly reached for the next session indicates the Communists now may be willing to discuss the military aspects first. U. S. Undersecretary of State Walter Bedell Smith is scheduled to dine tonight with Molotov. Molotov extended the invitation and conference observers predicted the get together might have an important bearing on the confer ence. It is understood Smith will tell Molotov that if Russia does not restrain Red Chinese aggression in the Far East, the world might be plunged into another war.
