JTWB If, MM BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURfen mrrra Parting Shots Fired by Both M'Carthy, Army Today's Session Might Be Last One In 36-Day Hearing (Continued from Page 1) Gen. Kirke B. Lawton are called as witnesses, all the facts can never be developed. Winding up his sptech, McLellan said: "I am a Democrat but I place the security and welfare of the country above any party." The Democrats once tried to have Clifford called as a witness but were voted down 4-3 by the Republicans on a party vote. Symington accused McCarthy of bringing up all manner of diversions to sidetrack the investigation. He referred at one point to "Diversion No. 1027." McCarthy said the Democrats were making "protestations of piety" while at the same time deliberately concealing valuable information. Welcn accused both sides of "practicing politics" and asked that th* hcarlngc movt along. McCarthy said Symington deliberately failed to show up at a meeting McCarthy called several weeks ago to decide what to do about the names of 133 workers in defense plants McCarthy said have been accused of subversion. Symington said that meeting was nothing but an "end run" but thjtt he had showed up and been told no one was present for the meeting. Mundt put in that both Sens. McClellan and Jackson (D-Wash) had told him they were on their way to the meeting. Jackson accused McCarthy of bringing charges against the Eisenhower administration that it was coddling Communists in defense plants, atomic bomb installations and the super-secret Central Intelligence Agency. McCarthy retorted he was not saying the Eisenhower administration was "being infiltrated" by Communists. He said "every Communist we have dug out so far except one was inherited and brought in long before President Eisenhower took over." McCarthy said "no one is as unhappy as my Democrat friends when it appears there is some pos- of ending this investiga- sibility tion." The Wisconsin senator told Jack son: "You know that if it were mittee, we would not today be in this investigation. We'd be inves tigating Communists." Sen. Diksen (R-H1) said he in Smart, light-weight geflyini NYLON ...

Dirksen said the Republican administration inherited a problem of Communist infiltation in the government. He said the Eisenhower administration is "going forward on every front" in solving it. Saved Their Bitterness While other senators joined in the wrangling from time to time. McCarthy and Symington reserved their greatest bitterness for each other. McCarthy told Symington he has "demonstrated to the great American jury how unfit he is to sit on this committee" as a judge of the McCarthy-Army dispute. McCarthy and Symington hotly told each other they were not fooling the American people. As the wrangling grew in bitterness, Army Counsel Welch spoke up: "Could I remind the committee that Mr. St. Clair and I came here this morning hopeing that we might ask an occasional question . I am almost numb from what I have heard." St. Clair pressed McCarthy about the alleged "blackmail" attempt by Adams. St. Clair suggested it made no sense for tmdAsa e orsort to "blackmail" since, he said, the Army had the "highest executive department" authority for its position that McCarthy had no right to question loyalty board members. "Blackmail was entirely unnecessary," he declared. McCarthy retorted that it has been proved that "the blackmail was most effective." He said the Army's charges in the present barings wr th only way to halt his subcommitte from questioning loyalty board members about security clearance given workers at secret radar laboratories at Ft. Monmouth, N. J. McCarthy's story of the alleged blackmail effort, related earlier in the hearings, was that Adams came to his apartment Jan. 22, tried to get him to drop plans to question the loyalty board, and "made it very, very clear" that if McCarthy did not, the Army would issue an "embarrassing report" about Roy M. Cohn, chief counsel to McCarthy's subcommittee. Commodity And Stock Markets- GUATEMALA (Continued from Page 1) 100,000 persons were expected to throng Guatemala City's narrow streets. The Guatemalan general staff and the presidential office earlier yesterday denied a report that the army had given Arbenz 24 hours resign. A joint statement, Said ihe army "is'giving all its support to Citizen President Arbenz." 24 Seek Asylum El Salvador's embassy in Guatemala City was reported bulging h 24 refugees who sought asylum ihere from the- government rund- up. Exile surces say 600 or more opponents of Arbenz and the Communists already are under arrest. The government reportedly has ranted safe conduct for 18 of those n the Salvadorean Embassy to eave the country. Several other ippositionists already have made heir escape via this route. Guatemalan exiles in Tegucigalpa made no secret of their military ^reparations. Men dressed in fresh chaki but wearing no insignia walked the streets and gathered at the city's airport. They were seen carding planes without any ap- arent effort to hide their movements. i i i i i i * . . wi*h a Natural Gas Incinerator Such a marvelous difference!

The crowd threatened to kill them and only fast police station saved the Reds from disaster. Two were badly beaten and one was rushed to a hospital. All needed some first aid patching. Police hauled the six men out, of the seething- crowd of 20.000 West Berliners who begged for "one more crack." The disturbance came as West German officials addressed the rally in front of West Berlin city hall. The crowd was in quite a holiday mood until the hecklers started shouting anti-West remarks. Irate West Germans seized the Commrnists and bashed them to the street. Flying squads of police drove wedpes into the crowd and hauled the hecklers to riot control ars and then to police headquarters. The West rally climaxed the commemoration of the riots a year ago when two million Soviet Zone and East. Berlin German workers rebelled against Red rule. A delegation visited the graves of six West Berliners caught, in the Soviet sector and mortally wounded in the rioting. West German Vice Chancello Fmnz Bluecher told the rally: "Here it was proved that it is th will of the people o the Soviet Zon to live in a free, democratic an unified Germany." 16.25: boars 9.00-16.50.

The nonparalytlc case from Milligan Ridge Community. Rickie Sparks. 2, is reported to be in good health at this time, according to the examining physician. Symptoms were so mild, the doctor said, that the boy was all right in a couple of days. This abortive type polio is not contagious, and very seldom becomes serious. The child usually recovers in a day or two. he explained. The total cases of polio in the state thus far this year are (55, almost twice ns many as had been reported for the same period last year, the health department said. Other counties reporting non- paralytic cases wore Lonoke. Monroe and Union,, with paralytic cases reported in Craighead. Miller, Monroe. Phillips and Union.

Dr. Rabl, chairman of the AEC's General Advisory Committee—a post Oppenheimer held in the postwar years—made it plain he does not think the Russians have perfected nn H-bomb. AEC Chairman Le^te L. Mpjmss hits said the Russians have exploded "a weapon or device" involving fusion, the hydrogen bomb process. His use of the word "device" suggested it might be only a laboratory-type model. Saw Russian Success Rabi testified in the Oppenheimer hearings he was "pretty certain" the Russians would perfect the H- bomb "in time." and he added: "What I am afrnid of is this controversy over this case may hasten the day because of the sort of attrition of the security of technical information—all sorts of stuff xppearing in the newspapers and magazines and so on that sort of skirts around it (the H-bomb). "You know you have a filter system for informatin. You put bits and pieces together. They (the Russians) already know something ..."
