MONDAY, SEPT. 14, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS McCarthy Says American in UN Admits Red Ties Closed Heoringi On Communists In United Nations Begin j, NEW YORK im— Sen. Joseph B. ~ McCarthy (R-Wis) said today an American woman on the staff of t the United Nations secretariat ad mitted to his committee she was * Communist for five years. McCarthy said a second witness, Julius Reiss, an American employed by the Polish delegation to the U.N. as a documents clerk, balked at answering questions on constitutional grounds.

He said she declared herself "completely cooperative and witting to give all she knows regard- Ing any Communist links." The McCarthy hearings are closed, but the senator briefs the presi on what transpired. He said the Polish employe formerly used the name of Joel Bemes. McCarthy said Reiss cited constitutional grounds on possible self incrimination for refusing to say U he ever were or is a Communist, or if he were an officer or organ• iaer for the party. Reiss also would not give the names of persons who got him his job at the U.N. and refused to say if a top functionary of the Communist Party was one of them, McCarthy added.

The Belgrade government "cannot and must not assume the heavy responsibility' 'of rejecting the plebiscite proposal, Pella declared. He | warned the nations "having a determining authority in this matter" that a solution "permits no further delay ' lest it become a cause "for throwing humanity into ruins, tears and blood." Pella spoke at Rome's city hall on the 10th anniversary of the defense of Rome against German occupiers after the Allied - Italian armistice in World War IT. He was enthusiastically applauded. (Continued from Page 1) and by the five "neutrals." 2. That the conference take the form of a round-table but that decisions must obtain the unanimous agreement of both belligerent sides in Korea. 3. That the conference settle Korea's future and then go on to other Far Eastern questions. The United States has consistently maintained that a Korean settlement must be followed by a general Far East conference with a wider membership. 4. That as soon as the composition of the conference is settled through negotiation, the two belligerent sides in Korea consult and make arrangements for the place and time of the conference. This last proposal ignored the United States, which was designated by the Assembly to consult on the time and place with the Communists. The Americans have asked the Reds, via Sweden, for talks on these points and have suggested that the Korean parley convene about Oct. 15 in either eneva, San Francisco or Honolulu. The Korean armistice agreement specifies that the conference begin on or before Oct. 28.

Party leaders Joined In a chorus of challenge to the Republicans as the Democrats began their two- day rally with inner party frictions hidden under an outward coat of harmony. Shout Defiance Former Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois, the 1952 presidential nominee, and former President Truman led a list of Democratic notables who shouted defiance to the Eisenhower administration and promised a fighting congressional campaign next year on foreign policy, farm and big business Issues. Stevenson told a rally of Democratic women last night that "it begins to look as if we might need a crusade and I would be happy to lead it." In this allusion to President Eisenhower's "crusade" of last year, the former Illinois Governor came closer than ever before to indicating his availability for the party's 1956, nomination. Perhaps with this possibility in mind, Truman has introduced Stevenson as the "No. 1 Democrat, in the United States." Quickly Stevenson replied he didn't think there would ever be another "Mr. Democrat" so long as Truman was alive. But at this meeting, Stevenson POWs A new warmth fiber used In some boys' clothing is made from natural gas and common salt. STOP COLD AT ITS SOURCE!

Others ripped open their shirts to show the Red observer teams tatoos on their chests of Nationalist Chinese flags, and slogans. Throughout the transfer, Gen. Thorat explained to the representatives of the repatriation commission what action he was taking and received approval from the Czech, Polish, Swiss and Swedish members. Meanwhile, the four-nation truce supervisory commission met at Panmunjom in that its chairman called a routine session. Maj. Gen. Sven Grafstrom, Bedish delegate and chairman, said the commission received statistical reports from its supervisory teams stationed in North and South Korea and scheduled another session Tuesday. He said the Polish delegate did not bring up his expected protest in the case of Jan Hajdukiewicz, a polish interpreter, who last week bolted to American political asylum. Communist members of the Joint Military Armistice Commission so far have given no indication if and when they will reply to an Allied demand for an accounting of almost 3,500 Allied troops once known to have been prisoners but never released or reported dead. li th« unmistakable star despite the presence here of Democrats from almost every faction In the party except Southern balkers like Govs. James p. Byrnes of South Carolina and Allan Shivers of Texas. Truman, who lunched and dined with Stevenson yesterday sounded a call to party members to "go home and get in position so the Democrats will do what Is necessary to save the country." The former President remarked at another point that "there never Is anything but harmony in the Democratic party." Truman has urged party members to take off the gloves in criticizing President Eisenhower and his administration. Mitchell Criticizes National Chairman Stephen Mitchell, not quite willing to go so far, voiced sharp criticism at a news conference at Democrats who might seek election to Congress on Elsenhower's coattalls. Although Democratic leaders in Congress generally have contended the President's proposals got approval of this year's Congress only because of Democratic support, Mitchell said he doesn't believe coattail riding will work. \ "I don't know if Eisenhower will be able to help elect anybody to Congress in another year," he declared. Rep. Rayburn of Texas, the House minority leader, predicted that next year the Democrats will be criticizing the Republicans "not for what they have done, but for what they haven't done." Sen. Monroney (D-Okla) snld the minority party will "try to give the country back to the people nnd not to General Motors." The latter was a reference to the statement of Secretary of Defense Wilson that what was good for the country was good for General Motors, and vice versa. All of this firing at the Rcpubli- cans served to distract attention temporarily from the party's own inner troubles, scheduled to come to a boil later In the day in series of panel sessions preceding a $100 a plate dinner tonight. Sen. Douglas (D-I11), billed as the principal speaker, planned an attack on what he contends is big business influence on the Eisenhower administration. Douglas was to share time with 11 other party notables, including Stevenson and Truman. Internal Strife The internal strife within the party centered around proposed efforts by dissident Southern m I n- bers to do something about the so- called loyalty pledge adopted at last year's national convention. Gov. Hugh White of Mississippi, a late arrival, was looked upon as the most likely author of any attack on the^ pledge. It could only come as a resolution, which Rayburn snicl there wns doubt that the conference has authority to act upon in nny event. FUEL OIL G. 0. POETZ OIL CO.

Former Sen. Blair Moody of Michigan told a news conference this was only a "right, to vote" pledge and ought to be carried out in that spirit at the 1956 convention. Jacob M. Arvey, Illinois national commltteeman, said In an interview he was opposed to dropping the pledge. It was evident party leaders hoped to bury the controversy with a study group, at least for the duration of next year's campaign. There was no question in th« minds of most of the delegates here that, despite the fact he lost four Southern states to Elsenhower and polled only 89 electoral votes last year, Stevenson Is still tin favorite of the party.
