McClelland (D-Ark) said today his Senate Investigations subcommittee intends to expose the higher-ups in "a nest of small grafters" he contends has fattened on contracts with the armed forces. He said in an interview he sees no evidence that corruption in big-" scale buying ot uniform equip ment has reached very high in the procurement services. But he said further evidence will show it has reached levels higher than those shown in two days of testimony this week. Kesumes Tuesday The subcommittee's public hearing recessed Tnursday until Tuesday after a former chief inspec tor for the Army admitted he had lied under oath. The witness, Joseph G. Porreca, of Clifton. N. J., testified he had ved a home freezer, meat to stock it, and some lingerie Mrs. Porreca in 1952 from Marvin Rubin, a key figure in the inquiry. Rubin was a business finder — Sen. Bender (R-Ohio) called him a "fixer"— for some firms whose products for the armed services were inspected by Porreca's subordinates. Admits Lie Poneca admitted he had lied in prior sworn denials to the subcom mittee that he had accepted any of those things from Rubin. He still insisted they were not guts, but lie said he never paid for any of them. Rubin, called to the witness stand four times during the 4>y, stuck to his story that he had made "no payoffs" to any government workers. He said Bender was wrong in calling him a "fixer." RUDin acRnewieagen ne seni me freezer to Porreca on Christmas Eve 1952, and that Bonita Originals, Inc., which held a contract with the quartermaster general, paid for it. But he said it was not a Christmas gift, and that he had "gently" tried to collect its $215 cost from Forreca witnout success. "Tried To Pay Porreca said it was the other way around— that he tried to pay for the freeaer, but never did get a bill for it from Rubin. Porreca acknowledged he had withdrawn one of his inspectors I from a Puerto Rico factory lepi I sented by Rubin, after the business finder had complained about the | a. He said there also were oth- j reasons for replacing the in-i sp»«:tor. Porreca, who said he now works for the New York Feather Co., d Rubin complained to him in unprintable language about a 'squeeze' Rubin contended an other inspector was putting on him. Porreca named that inspector as Louis Alpersteln, and said he also was called home later, but that he thinks it was at Alper-stein's request. Bender asked wnetner Forreca had used his government job "to feather your nest." Porreca denied it. Received $150 A prior witness, Jerome Schlesinger, of New York, testified he received tnrougn Kumn 5iou penses for a trip to Puerto Rico to untangle an inventory muacne that was holding up government payments on a contract neid by the Bonita company. Schlesinger said this \va& in ia53, I while he was working for the quar termaster, and that he never lei his bosses know he made the trip. Rubin firmly denied that he knew anything about the $150 payments to Schlesinger, who said he now works for the Internal nue Sen-ice in New York.
