Oct. 23 INS — Onetime Communist spy courier Whittaker Chambers took the witness stand before a Senate internal security subcommittee today, and named David Zablodowsky, a United Nations official, as a member of a Soviet underground apparatus in 1936. Zablodowsky is now chief of the publications division at UN. In response to a question from the sub-committee, Chambers said: "Yes, I knew him to be a Communist." Answers Subpoena Chambers, who played a major role in the conviction of Alger Hiss, emphasized to the committee that he was testifying "solely in response to a subpoena," and not for the purpose of making any sensations. Chambers was asked if he knew David Weintraub, economic affairs director at the United Nations, and he replied: "Not personally." The witness said, however, that he had heard the name of "David Weinstone" mentioned in the Communist underground. He said he was told that "Wein- stone" had a sister named Rose. The committee summoned Rose Alpher, of Chevy Chase, Md,, a sister of Weintraub, to the stand and asked her if she had heard Chambers' testimony. She said she had. Refuses To Answer She testified she is a teacher in a private school. Asked if she was a Communist in the 1930's, she "declined to answer" under the fifth amendment to the Constitution. She was then excused. He said that he had known Za- blodowsky in his college days at Columbia University and that Za- blodowstry had Communist sympathies at that time. Chambers testified he knew many Russian agents from 1923 when he joined the Communist party, until 1936 when he broke with the party. He said they were known to him by first names only such as "Richard," "Carl." and "Bill." Tells Of Red Activity He related that in 1935 "J. Peters," then head of the Communist movement in the U. S., proposed to introduce him to a man who was assisting "Richard," who was leaving for the Soviet Union. This man, said Chambers, was David Zablodowsky whom he had known in college. "There is no doubt in my mind that Zablodowsky was a -conscientious supporter of 'Richard,' " Chambers declared. The witness explained that "Richard" was the man known as Robinson Reubens who disappeared after he went to the Soviet Union See CHAMBERS Page 8 LUBBOCK MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, I exas, Friday, Oct. 24, 1952 Section 4 BUTTERFLIES IN THEIR HEARTS?—Two candidates for the coveted title of Harvest Queen are shown as they rode in the sixth annual Harvest Festival parade at Brownfield Thursday.
