TMTJUSDAY, JUNE 10, 1S54 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGETHRfB Efforts to Shift Red Probe from Army Claimed McCarthy Swears Stevens, Adams Tried Diversion (Continued from Page 1) bers of his staff to call off his Reds-in-the-Army investigation. McCarthy replied that he "didn't take the pressure seriously until about the 21st of January" when senators told him Adams was trying to induce them to block subpoenas for members of the Army loyalty board. "It reached the height on the 22nd of January when Mr. Adams came to my apartment," McCarthy added. Before Jan. 21, McCarthy related, there had been ''needling back and forth, in a friendly fashion I thought," between Adams and Colin. Adams has testified that he met at the Justice Department on Jan. 21 with some top officials of the Eisenhower administration, including Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams and Atty. Gen. Brownell, and told them that McCarthy had issued what he regarded as an ultimatum on the Army to produce loyalty board members for questioning. At this meeting, Adams testified, he expressed belief that the "ultimatum" was linked to word he had passed to Cohn that Schine might be assigned overseas after finishing his basic Army training. The Army counselor said that Sherman Adams suggested he make a written record of his experiences with McCarthy and the subcommittee staff relating to the treatment of Schine. A direct me by President Eisenhower has benned further testimony about what went on at the Jan. 21 conference. Tells of Luncheon After fixing the Jan. 21-22 period as the time he first took seriously Army "pressure," McCar- at the Pentagon. In first mention of it, the senator said he thought perhaps the Navy and the Air Force had been "mentioned" at the luncheon. When Jenkins asked him to tell precisely what was said at the could give only the substance. "I didn't take it seriously enough to remember verbatim," he said. Then McCarthy related the alleged efforts to get his subcommittee to turn to the Navy and Air Force. McCarthy, at a later point, said he felt Stevens and Adams were trying to get him to "whitewash" charges of Communist infiltration of the Army. McCarthy testified that after repeated suggestions that he "go after" the Navy and Air Force, he told Stevens and Adams it was a "waste of time" for them to try to get him to call off his hearings on Reds in the Army. McCarthy said he reminded the Army officials that he had campaigned against Democrats whom he accused of trying to "whitewash" charges about Communist infiltration. "In effect," McCarthy said he told Stevens and Adams, "that is what you are asking me to do now." Points to Others McCarthy said as he recalled it, Adams insisted there, was "a lot of dirt in the Navy also" and there was "certainly as much dirt there as in the Army." Jenkins also took McCarthy through the now famous incident during which photographs were taken of Schine, Stevens and others^ at McGuire Air Force Base, near Ft. Dix, on Nov. 17. McCarthy said he was "impressed — not impressed, I was amused—to find a colonel holding Linetta Roberts Gets Award Georgia Green Trophy Presented at Hope Linetta E. Roberts, a member of the Blytheville Social and Art Club of Negro Federated Women, has been awarded the George A. Green trophy by the Arkansas Association of Colored Women. The Arkansas group convened at Hope this week. The award was given for "merit- orius service" in the community and some 877 women were eligible to receive it. Others attending the meeting were Geneva Haraway. Armorel. and Carrie B. White of Blytheville. Junior delegates were Eula Horne and Dorothy Pinkney. a private's coat while the pictures were taken. It wasn't like that while I was in the Marines." He said he was told Schine's commander held Schine's coat for the picture taking. At any rate, McCarthy said, Secretary Stevens said "Dave, come over here," and a group stood by the airplane while several pictures were taken. He said he wasn't sure I of Stevens' exact words, that the secretary may have said, "Dave, I want a picture." McCarthy observed Stevens was a "good natured individual and he perhaps wanted to make Dave feel good. It is quite an event when a private gets his picture taken with the secretary of the Army On one side and the commander of a whole area on the other side." In the original picture, Col. John Bradley, McGuire commander, was standing by Schine and part of another individual was shown. Later, the McCarthy camp introduced a photograph in the hearings showing Schine . and Stevens alone. This was an effort to back up a charge that Stevens had requested that his photograph be taken with Schine at the very time the Army charges improper pressure was being brought for favors for Schine. Army Counsel Joseph M. Welch denounced the photo produced by the McCarthy camp as "a perfect j phony." Testimony brought out that members of the McCarthy subcommittee staff had "cropped" the picture to take out Bradley and show Stevens and Schine alone. McCarthy said Adams repeatedly sought to get his subcommittee to drop its investigation of Reds in the Army and let the Army take over the inquiry, but "there was nothing dishonorable about it." Back to Press Release f The senator said executive agencies naturally don't like to be investigated by congressional committees and there was "nothing ex- Jenkins led McCarthy through an traordinary at that time." incident of Oct. 19-20 involving a proposed press release prepared by Army Counselor Adams for McCarthy to give out—which McCarthy refused. McCarthy first took the witness chair late yesterday, brought to it in a bitter clash with Army Counsel Welch who denounced McCarthy as a "reckless and cruel" man without a sense of decency. With the outburst, Welch stopped questioning Cohn, chief counsel to McCarthy, and called for the next witness—McCarthy. At the outset of today's sessions, Chairman Mundt (R-Sd) asked all members to "search our souls and consciences" to determine how long the inquiry—now in its 31st day—should continue. Says End Near Mundt said the adjournment of Congress is appraching, and that the hearings are a heavy burden on the subcommittee's members. Sen. Symington (D-Mo) had just excused himself to attend a senate Armed Services Committee meeting, and Sen. Dirksen (R-I11) had announced he would absent himself later to attend an Appropria* tions Committee meeting.

George <D-Gu> actually offered this in committee last week as a substitute for a provision giving substantial relief to stockholders on their dividend income, but lost 10-4. The revenue loss from the $20 plan would be about 850 million annually under George's estimate; committee stuff officials said it might reach $1,-100.000.000 a year.
