SATURDAY, SEPT. 12, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Church Probe Files Opened Clergymen Issue Denials Of Charges (Continued from Page I) tutlon guaranteed their right to avoid giving possibly self-incriminating testimony. , However, King testified he had JH Veen a member of the Catholic Committee for Human Rights, an organization now defunct. In testimony before the House group, Kornfeder named Harry F. Ward, former professor at Union Theological Seminary, New York, as leader of a plan to communize clergymen through the Methodist Federation for Social Service. This is an unofficial' organization not connected with the Methodist church. "Completely False" ' In New York last night, Ward denied the testimony about him as "completely false." Gitlow also named Ward as a minister who "carried out the instructions of the Communist party or collaborated with It." But Gitlow said "the key figure" for the Communists in the religious field was "Robert W. Dunn, head of the Labor Research Association." He referred to Dunn as having been "connected with the Quakers' Relief Organization and Kith the Young Men's . Christian Association." Others involved "in the Communist conspiracy to subvert the Methodist church for Communist purposes," Gitlow testified, included the Rev. Jack B. McMichael, the Rev. Charles C. Webber, the Rev. Alson J. Smith, Dr. Willard Uphaus, Margaret Porsyth, the I Eev. Lee H. Ball, and Prof. Wal- I «;'r Rautenstrauch. Still others named in the committee's report included Dr. William B. Spofford Sr., the Rev. Irwin St. John Tucker, the Rev. Claude WHliams, the late Rabbi Stephen S. Wise and the Rev. John Haynes Holmes. Many of the clergymen named could not be reached for comment. However, Dr. Spofford was reached at Tunkhannock, Pa., and said: "I ant trying to carry on the Christian religion and I am not a member nor have I ever been a member of any political party." The 61-year-old clergyman, editor of the Episcopal national weekly "The Witness" for 30 years, said of the list: "That's a fine group of men and I'm glad to be included in their number." Ward also said he belonged to no political party and added: "All testimony charging me with Communist party membership or ac- ^ivities under its direction is eom- iletely false." The Rev. Mr. Tucker said in Chicago he has voted Republican for more than 20 years and has been a bitter enemy of communism for 30 years. The Rev. Mr. Williams said in Helena, Ala., he is a Democrat and has worked for civil rights and is "not even a member of the Progressive party." McMichael has denied to • the committee that he ever was a Communist. Johnson described ward as "the Red dean of the Communist party In the religious field." 2 Scholarships In Optometry To Be Awarded All accredited colleges In Arkansas have been informed of optometry scholarship awards which will go to two students this year,* Dr. Milton E.
