CLOSE OUT Many Pattern Dishes 1 Price Hubbard Hardware The newspaper's story, published in today's editions, came on the heels of a disclosure by the House Appropriations Committee in Washington yesterday that Hall, in a death cell admission, said that he couldn't have kidnaped and killed little Bobby Greenlease «" Kansas City without the stimulation of drugs. Mrs. Heady, the Globe-Democrat reported, was quoted as asking Hall in the, presence of a federal officer to tell about the money and source of the drugs. However, Hall was said by the newspaper to have snapped back at his partner in crime: • "Snut up. we have already talked too much. Remember we j never rat on a pal." i Hall and Mrs. Heady were executed last Dec. 18 for kidnap- slaying. About half of the $600,000 ransom paid by the boy's father is still missing. George P. Larrick, deputy food and drug administrator, told the House committee the FBI found a 100-tablet bottle of a drug known as arnphitamine in Mrs. Heady's pocketbook. After Hall's conviction, Larrick said, "We went to the penitentiary—to the death cell—and got a signed statement from him. Hall, like many other criminals, had used this benzadrine to stimulate him to kidnap the child, and later used it to stimulate him to kill the child." The Globe-Democrat said it learned the interviews were conducted by Roy S. Pruitt, agent in charge of the St. Louis office of the food and drug administration, and that reports of the interview were submitted to the Justice Department. Pruitt declined to comment.

McCarthy-Army (Continued from Page 1) erately trying to withhold certain calls from the investigation be cause they would be damaging t the Army's side of the dispute. Cohn made the charge after Army Counsel Joseh N. Welch said a White House order obviously barred the release ol calls between Stevens and Adams, on the on hand, and Maj. Gen. Kirke B Lawton, commander of Ft. Mon mouth, N.J. The order, issued May 17, for bade disclosure of private conver sations within the administration Sen. McClellan (D-Ark) asked Cohn. chief counsel for the Me Carthy subcommittee, if Cohn didn't believe Stevens would mat available all the monitored calls he could. "No, sir, I don't believe that,' Cohn replied. Cohn contended it would be "un fair" to use transcripts of his talks with Stevens and Adams unless the other transcripts were also used. McClellan said he didn'-t see ho\v it could be unfair if Cohn's talks reflected that the McCarthy side's contentions in the controversy are true. Cohn retorted that release o: some calls without the other migh give a distorted picture, out o context—"one half the picture." In related developments; 1. The subcommittee voted in a closed session against releasing the transcript of what was said a a meeting it had May 17. Asst Secretary of Defense H. Struve Hensel had asked for release o this transcript, contending it woulc show that McCarthy conceded he had no substantiation for hi; charges against Hensel. While re fusing to release the transcript for publication, the subcommitte' voted to give a copy to each o those who attended the session including Hensel. 2. McCarthy suggested that Sen Symington (D-Mo) make a one-man investigation of the McCarthy charges against HenseL Syming ton rejected the suggestion. 3. The Defense Department asserted today it has complete power and responsibility to weed oxi Communists or subversives working on secret defense contracts in private industry. It sent a statement to this effect to Symington who read it at the hearings. The statement said an impression had been given yesterday that the department was "powerless to protect itself" against Communsits or security risks working in private industry on classified projects. The reference was to debate yesterday over McCarthy's contention he has the names of 130 Communists working in defense plants.

Atomic Enerecry Commission's special security board that Oppenheimer should not be cleared to handle American atomic secrets. The independent Times said editorially the decision "poses an alarming- question—can science and indeed other skills where they touch the safety of nations be served only by the equivalent of Soviet man, disciplined, doctrinaire, devoted narrowly to a single goal of power?" The Liberal News Chronicle said editorially. "America has not much to be proud of in its treatment of Dr. Oppenheimer. He seems to have become victi mnot so much of blind anti-Communist phibia as,of a curious witch hunt against men of ideas." It added there is "too much of this sort of thing in American life just now."
