FRIDAY, JTFNE U, BLTTHEYTLL* CARK.) COlTRIEtt PAGE/FIV1 South May Seek Legal Loopholes In Court Ruling Plan Suggested To Continue Fight For Separate Schools RICHMOND, Va. ftft— The attorneys general of the Southern states may meet this summer in an effort to find legal loopholes that their traditional system of racial would permit the states to continue segregaion in the public schools. A suggestion for such a meeting was just about the most tangible thing that emerged from yesterday's 15-state, closed-door conference on problems resulting from the Supreme Court's decision agai separation of the races in schools. Most of the states indicated they will not file briefs, as the Supreme Court invited them to do, before the court issues its final decree, Georgia's Atty. Gen. Eugene Cook told repqrters at the conclusion of the five-hour conference. Governors of nine states and legal and educational represenatives of six other states attended the meeting, which was initiated by Virginia's Gov. Thomas B.

The gravity of the situation in many of the states was emphasized but no conclusions were action was proposed. "The governor of West Virginia, along with personal representatives of Maryland and Kentucky, stated they were not confronted with as serious a problem as some of the Southern states, and that it was their intention to conform with the decision of he court. eight by their governors, found more of a problem. The conference was most helpful and it has been suggested that the attorneys general consider holding a later meeting to discuss the situation in more detail from the legal viewpoint." The states to which Stanley referred are North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida. Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Virginia. McCarthy-Army (Continued trom Page It during the four months from July to November, when McCarthy knew Schine was to be drafted. "Mr. Jenkins, I heartily disagree with you," McCarthy responded to this suggestion. He said it was certainly "no favor" to Schine to allow him to work when other draftees were "out dancing, going to the recreation hall." As for the minitored call with Stevens, McCarthy said no one could think this was a serious conversation. As Jenkins pressed questions about the conversation, McCarthy interjected: "Let's not beat that too much facetious." With the hearings in the 32nd day, they apparently were in the home stretch and set to wind up without calling Schine for his full story. The Republican majority of the investigations group voted last night to wind up with McCarthy, Conn, and Francis P. Carr, staff director of the McCarthy subcommittee, as final witnesses. This could bring an end next week to the televised hearings. Reported Late While Schine was technically drafted Nov. 3. he did not report to Ft. Dix for basic training until a week later. McCarthy testified he "countermanded" a request by Conn, for a special two-weeks furlough for Schine. Jenkins wanted to know—if it was so necessary for Schine to work for the subcommittee— it didn't disrupt the whole operation" of the subcommitee when Schine was ransferred from Ft. Dix, N. J., to Camp Gordon, Ga., and' no longer was available to the subcommittee. McCarthy said no one man was "indispensable" to his subcommittee but all of his workers were "important." He said the subcommittee had propped two important investigations becaus- it lost Schine's services. These inquiries, he said, involved the motion picture branch and the press branch of the United States Information Service. McCarthy said there was no doubt these investigations would have been pressed if Schine had continued to work for the subcommittee. .

The measure broadening social security coverage a nd boosting benefits swept through the House 355-8 last week and comes up soon for public hearings before the Senate Finance Committee.

Negro Baptists To Close State Meeting Here The statewide Negro Baptist Sunday School and BTU Congress being held here was scheduled to end today. Rev. R. S. Shorty of Hot Springs was re-elected president of the Congress during Wednesday's session. politically popular moves Congress can make in this election year. And Republicans say the chief advantage will fall to them, because President Eisenhower put the bill high on his 1954 legislative program and the GOP controls Congress. Eisennower renewed his plea for the measure in a televised speech on his legislative program last night, declaring that the "goal for every American" includes "a reasonable assurance . . . against insecurity in old age." However, Sen. George of Georgia enior Democrat on the Finance Committee, said in an interview social security "is a Democratic party program." He said Senate Democrats will back fully the 1954 liberalization of the system" just as we did in 1950 and other years." Sen. Carlson (R-an), a member of the committee, said enactment of the measure will be a big talking point for his party in the fall elections.

It also would boost benefits by a minimum of $5 monthly for those already getting payments and as much as S31.25 a month for a family in the future. FLANDERS (Continued from Page 1) original contempt or the junior senator from Wisconsin extended to the whole Senate." Flanders presented the Senate with a formal motion and asked that it lie on the table "until sufficient time has been given for the senator to purge himself of contempt by answering specifically and in detail the charges in the numerous questions" raised by the Hennings subcommittee. The motion read: "It is moved that Sen. McCarthy be separated from the chairmanship of the Senate Committee KE on Government furthermore be Operations and prohibited from being chairman or vice chairman of any subcommittee thereof:" Flanders read the Senate these questions raised by the 1952 report: "Whether, under the circumstances, .it was proper for Sen. McCarthy to receive $10,000 from the Lustron Corp." This was in payment for an article on housing which McCarthy wrote. Lustron, now defunct, was a heavy borrower from the government's Reconstruction Finance Corp. Miiuse of Funds "Whether funds supplied to Sen. McCarthy to fight communism or for other specific purposes were diverted to his own use. "Whether Spn. McCarthy used close associates and members of his family to secrete receipts, income, commodity and stock speculation and other financial transactions for ulterior motives. "Whether 'Sen. McCarthy's activities, on behalf of certain special interest groups, such as housing, sugar and china were motivated by self-interest. "Whether loan or other transactions Sen. McCarthy had with the Appleton (Wis) State Bank or others involved violations of the (Continued from Page 1) rigid to flexible lower-level farm price supports that he is "completely unmoved by arguments as to what constitutes good or winning politics." He said he has been told by many that the farm plan—already once voted down by the House Agriculture Committee — is not good politics in an election year. Even though he has not been in politics very long, he said. "I know that what is right for America is politically right." He touched off a round of laughter with his only allusion to the Army-McCarthy controversy: "In spite of highly publicized distractions, Congress has been hard at work." Progress Noted Then he ticked off progress on appropriations bills, highway construction legislation, tax cuts, approval of the St. Lawrence seaway project and ratification of a mutual security, treaty with South Korea. "But much still remains which is of vital importance to every American citizen," he declared. Most of his address dealt with domestic affairs, such a.s the farm program, tax revision and proposed legislation which he termed the administration's "potent package of protection against communism." But he said his program for keeping America strong economically, militarily and on the human side also includes a vigorous and forthright foreign policy. That policy, he said, is opposed to full account America's air and atomic might and is geared to successful opposition to "any rash aggression by the Communists." He renewed his call for "sensible solutions for the fateful problems posed by the atomic and hydrogen bombs." He said that from the long-range standpoint "our foreign and domestic policies must be directed toward world disarmament." Urges Tax Revision On the domestic side, he urged enactment of his tax revision program, saying it is designed to as- Mary Hardesty Dies; Services To Be Tomorrow Services for Mrs. Mnry C.

Du//es Warns Reds May Seek Pacific Bases SAN FRANCISCO (ft— Secretary of State John Foster Dulles snys there Is a danger thnt Communist China may try to capture "free world positions in the western Pacific with a view to driving the United States back to California." Without specifying which positions he had in mind, he warned the Red Chinese to keep "hands off." Addressing the San Francisco World Affairs Council in a brief stopover last night in a whirlwind West Coast tour, he said If Red aggression occurs in the western Pacific the United States will consider it a "direct threat." "We would, we hope with the help of the U.N., deal with it." He added, however, that even without the help of its allies, the United States would consider such Communist advances "a direct challenge." "Our action would not depend upon others but . , . upon what was vital to the security of the United States," he said. He also said any attempt to extend "European" political systems to South America would be considered a danger to the United States. He said the recent arms shipment to Guatemala in Central America from Communist Poland caused a "major shift of power" in South America. ROTARY (Continued from Page 1) per Bruton.

He also prodded the lawmakers for conclusive action on extension of unemployment insurance, expansion of social security coverage and an increase in benefits, the administration's health and housing programs, and a broader plan for rehabilitation of disabled people. As for tne "potent package of protection against communism," he appealed for approval of bills which would: Plug loopholes through which he said spies and subversives now can slip; bar proven subversives from jobs in defense-essential plants; strip citizenship from those hereafter convicted of advocations or attempting violent overthrow of the government: tighten the penalty for harboring fugtive Communist leaders; authorize use of wiretap evidence "under adequate safeguards" in federal court security cases ;and grant immunity from self-incrimination to selected witnesses. That program will help protect the nation against communism, he said, "without in any degree damaging or lessening the rights of individual citizens as guaranteed by our laws and the Constitution."

Still quoting from the 1952 report, Flanders said McCarthy had called the allegations a "smear. 7 ' Flanders continued: "It is no defense to call the charges a 'smear.' A smear is a most annoying thing and one which is perhaps (I would not speak definitely) not unknown to the junior senator from Wisconsin. But there is this about a smear. It can be removed by a dry cleaning process which involves a vigorous application of the truth. That process, the senator was unwilling to apply. The smear remains.
