Acting Chairman Mundt (R-SD), seeking to conciliate the McCarthy- Symington row, Said in an interview Symington had asked a "hypothetical question" about possible subversives on the subcommittee's staff at yesterday's session and that it was a "misunderstanding" when McCarthy lit into the Missourian. But McCarthy told newsmen it is up to Symington to "put up or shut up." He accused Symington and Army Special Counsel Joseph Sept Nov Jan 270 V 8 2521/2 255% 270 V 8 252 " 2 255^/4 37734 266 Vi 249 252 & 3409 3426 380 14 267% Chicago Wheat July .... 193V; 193V 4 Sept .... 196 196 191 % Chicago Corn July Sept 158% 152ft 157 152 v; 156'/4 151% 191% 194% 156% clashed before, o> tempting to fasten "guilt by implication" on McCarthy staff members. Symington said he was "dumbfounded" by McCarthy's outburst at the close of yesterday's session, but he stuck to his contention that the subcommittee's files had been "dangerously handled" under McCarthy's regime and were potentially open to looting. Symington said in a statement the'point he was making was that all staff members had access to the files and some of them had not been cleared for "top secret" information, i "If by chance there was one rot- N«w York Stocks (12:4* «tt*ftfttt«M) A T and T 166 1-2 Amer Tobacco 60 3-4 Anaconda Copper 36 7-8 Beth Steel 681-8 Chrysler .59 7-8 Coca-Cola 1183-8 Gen Electric 40 Gen Motors 70 1-4 ~r Montgomery Ward 62 1-4 Int Harvester 30 5-8 Republic Steel 57 3-8 Radio 27 1-4 Socon'y Vacuum 42 3-4 Studebaker 111-4 than 50 years.

All of this had little direct bearing on the charges of Secretary of the Army Stevens and Army Counselor John G. Adams that McCarthy and Roy M. Cohn. subcommittee chief counsel, brought improper pressure in trying to get favored Army treatment for Pvt. G. David Schine, a former subcommittee consultant. The McCarthy side countercharged that Stevens and Adams tried to use Schine as a "hostage" to sidetrack a McCarthy investigation of alleged Communists in the Army. The subcommittee voted on party lines May 26 to dismiss Carr as a principal to the case. Carr's testimony, generally given in short and laconic replies, supported the sworn accounts already given by McCarthy and Cohn in flat disagreement with those of Stevens and Adams. Carr, a 37- year-old former FBI man, said he regards all the McCarthy camp's charges as true. He testified that Adams once told him there was "a high-administration decision" to buck a move by McCarthy to call Army loyally board members for quesuomns;. He also quoted Adams as saying there were "probably 200" Communists or fellow travelers in the Army who could be called for questioning by the McCarthy subcommittee. McCarthy and Cohn have said Schine, while on weekend and evening passes from Ft. Dix, N. J., worked diligently on subcommittee business. Carr said he did not recall ever having seen a memorandum submitted by Schine.

Hoffman'? widow last Monday was voted a SS.OOO-a-year pension by the state Legislature and the bill await? Meyner's signature. Hoffman, affable after-dinner speaker and President of the fun- loving Circus Saints and Sinners, was suspended March 18 by Meyner from the S13.500 post he held since he left the governorship in 1938. At the time of the suspension. Meyner said he had evidence of 'widespread irregularities" in the Tax Installment Deadline Hears The second installment of estimated income tax is due to be paid on or before June 15, the Internal Revenue Office pointed out today. All but 10 percent of the total tax owed by corporations is due by June 15 and if not paid by that time, the corporation loses its installment privilege. The office also pointed out that regulations governing refunds as a. result of excise tax cuts are now blocked efforts to reach the crash scene until Tuesday. Church Council Lists Faults of Two Ideologies CHICAGO MB—A committee of th World Council of Churches, in a dis cussion of political philosophies has listed faults in both democrac and communism. The committee, in a report made public yesterday, criticized democ racy for permitting "inequality discrimination, injustice, exploita tion and aggression." It assailed communism even more harshly, saying the basic weaknesses was in the' denial God, the belief that economic changes can abeiish strife and self- seeking, and the belief that the proletarian man can lead history to its consummation. The report was prepared by 32 leading Protestant theologians for submission to the World Council of Churches second International Assembly which will be held in suburban Evanston Aug. 15-31.

City officials told them to rebuilt their huts, which they consider eyesores, outside the city. strong one, that when any member j purc hase of division supplies and j of the committee (staff) interrogates anyone who .doesn't want his name known .... I have requested that no memorandum be placed in the file, knowing -that too many people have access to those files." Carr, robust and perspiring, worked his way steadily through three pitchers hundreds of of ice water and cross-examination questions before yesterday's climax came with- Symington directing inquiries at him. After Carr had testified that one member of the subcommittee staff of investigators has "top secret" clearance and others have "secret" clearance, Symington commented: "It would be unfortunate if we had a subversive on our staff and he hadn't had clearance and then he examined an agency and in that agency he got information which made it possible for him to betray the country." "It would be unfortunate and most unusual," Carr replied, adding that "there ,are no subversives on our staff." •, When Symington asked if staff members had "clearance from the FBI,' McCarthy broke in to say Symington was making "the implication . . . that he knew* of some subversive on the staff." "He does not," McCarthy s»id.

In a letter to Meyner last night, she apologized to the governor because "for almost two weeks you have appeared in a crucially unfair position." Mrs. Leonard, mother of six children, termed her letter to Meyner a difficult one to write, "but it is warmly and sincerely largely a thank-you note." Bond Is Forfeited William E- Coate forfeited bond of $19.75 in Municipal Court this morning on a charge of improper license. McMath to Open Race LITTLE ROCK W)—Former Gov. Sid McMath announced yesterday that he will formally open his campaign for the U. S. Senate with a night address July 8 at the Robinson Auditorium here. Arkansas Not 'Alert' LITTLE ROCK Oft—Arkansas did not take part in yesterday's nationwide simulated atomic alert. State Director E. B. Ward Jr. said Arkansas Civil Defense was "not equipped to participate" in the drill. CONCRETE COOPERATES ...with your eyes ...with your brakes Safe driving at night, when accident frequency is highest, depends on being able to see far and stop quickly. If yon cant see—if you cant stop—you cant he safe! Concrete cooperates with your eyes. Its light color reflects much more of your car lights than dark-colored pavement. Its grainy surface diffuses light in all directions, letting you See a maximum distance forward. You can see better—and farther—on concrete. Concrete cooperates with your brakes. Tires quickly grab and firmly hold to its gritty texture. On concrete you get uniformly high skid resistance, rain or shine. On concrete you can make faster, smoother, safer stops.

Kemp and Mary Whisenhunt to Central Grade School Getting Face-Lifting As part of the regular maintenance and repair work on the Blytheville schools, Central Grade School building is receiving a face lifting job. The columned front of the building has been torn down and will be replaced by a simple stoop, W. B. Nicholson, superintendent of schools, said this morning. Because of the decayed condition of the old front it was found that it was cheaper to remove it than to try to repair it, he Said. The regular school maintenance crew and school janitors are doing the work. The grade school building is being gone over entirely for repairs of the cornice and gutters and brick joints. Some of the rooms are receiving new paint. Other schools are receiving or will receive attention as funds allow, Mr. Nicholson said. Among these is a new roof for the Clear Lake Negro School and smoke stack repair on Haley Field Gymnasium. Already repaired is a room at Lange School. Fireman leaps Off Train To Rescue Two-Y ear-Old Standing on tne Trades School Policy To Be Re-Studied LITTLE ROCK (IP) — The State Board of Education yesterday approved a statement proposing the resfcudy of the "separate but equal" policy in the public school system. The board agreed that the study was needed in view of the U. S. Supreme Court's May 17 ruling outlawing segregation in education. However, the board said nothing about a definite move toward integration. District-wide accreditation for schools was approved by the board. The plan, which will abolish accreditation of individual schools, is scheduled to become effective July 1, 1957. OMAHA WV-"I saw him standing by the rail on the right. We blew the whistle and sounded the bell. The child just stood there. ,1 knew there was just one thing to do." And so fireman Otto Gibson of Falls City, Neb., dropped from the cab, scrambled ahead to the footboard as the train slowed down. Leaping to the right of the rail Gibson tucked the child under his arm and the two rolled to safety. Engineer Ray Bader brought the train tc a halt 40 feet beyond. The rescue occurred on the Missouri Pacific tracks in South Omaha last night. The father of the two-year-old involved had watched from a distance. A sleeping man was similarly rescued by a railroad conductor in Tucson, Ariz, .the night before. Mishap Is Reported James Rambo and Joe B. Cole were involved in a traffic mishap at the corner of Lilly and Main Streets this morning causing some damage to both vehicles, city police reported. Twining Cites Defense Needs More Preparedness Likely Due to Reds LEXINGTON. Va. (ft— Gen. Nathan P. Twining said today th« United States may be forced to step up its military preparedness effort because of the Soviet drive tQ overcome American superiority in atomic weapons. Gen. Twining ,the Air Pore* chief of staff, said it seemed "futile to maintain that the most powerful weapons would not be used in an ultimate test of strength between the nations that possess them." In remarks prepared for commencement exercises of the Virginia Military Institute, Twining indicated clearly that he was referring to aircraft, particularly long range jet bombers, when he said he foresaw the possibility of increased military preparedness by the United States. He noted that the Russians have now begun to build bombers capable of delivering the most powerful weapons over the greatest distances at the highest altitudes and speeds. "We may be forced to step up our own progress through heavier investments and increased effort," Twining said. state meeting at Nodena, 11 a.m. A.
