Chambers is the self-described ex-Communist *py courier who says Hiss' furnished him with secret government papers for a prewar Russian spy ring. Because Hiss denied doing this, a federal grand jury indicted the 'ormer high State Department official for perjury. The defense yesterday called to :he stand one of Chambers' school- day friends, Karl F. Helfrlch of Upper Montclair. N. J., who testified that he and Chambers In 1920 made elaborate plans to enter Williams College as freshmen. After they had already bought furniture for their rooms, Hel- frlch said, Chambers shut himself up with a Bible the night before school opened, saying he had 'problems to think out." In the dead of night, the witness said, Chambers left, never to return. Assistant U. S. Attorney Thomas f. Murphy unsuccessfully tried to Dlock Helfrlch's entlfce testimony. Murphy said It was no crime "to consult the Bible when you are in trouble." Federal Judge Henry W. God(lord-said he will rule next week on whether he will permit psychiatric 'testimony about Chambers, as requested by the defense. Shortly before yesterday's court session was adjourned for the New Year's Eve weekend,' the defendant's wife, Mrs. Prlscilla Hiss, took Lhe stand and denied many of Chambers' claims. Mrs. Hiss denied she was a Communist or fellow-traveler as charged by Chambers, The trial resumes next Tuesday. Rev, Shea's Father Dies in Decatur The Rev. T. R.

By CHARLES WHAL1SW SPftltfGFiSLi), t*c. 30. tfi — 3ov. Stevenson will contpiel* hfs irst year m office Jan. 9. He says a likes the job fine and "it's Worth the sacrifices". Although he puts in 75 hours ft week running the "biggest business in Illinois," he hasn't suffered any ill effects. In fact, he has gained weight and is a bit on the paunchy side. The 49-year-old Democratic governor came to th$ executive mansion a political neophyte. He frankly admits Ae picked up a lot of headaches that aspirin wouldn't cure. His biggest trouble was trying u satisfy the clamor of job seekers for rewards from the 1948 election, victory. Assistants say he received 100,000 applications for 17,000 politically controHed^jobs under his Jurisdiction. He has filled more than 11,000 of them but the grumbles over pa- trdnage haven't ceased. He has retained or. appointed Republicans in some key spots. He says a major problem Is find- Ing qualified persons for state jobs and making people believe he !h sincere in demanding "a day's work for a day's pay". One of his chores that goes with being governor is speechmaklng. He averaged three appearances a week during his first year. But he turned doWn : Invitations at the rate of four a day. • He has acquired the reputation of being a blunt-speaking politician on the platform. Stevenson handles much of the routine work of his job himself and finds little time for relaxation. He likes to play tennis and golf. When he came to Springfield, he brought along his golf equipment but was able to squeeze In only a few rounds. However, he managed to make use of his golf shoes. He; took out the spikes' and wore; the shoes around the mansion. - ; He gets up early every morning and usually is finished With breakfast and at his desk by 8:30. Frequently he is still there at midnight. In Springfield, he spends most o t f his.private life in the 28-room mansion.-'! ••-•-<-•' •-'••••.• -•• ... •/< ,• What ';were Ms greatest accomplishments during his,, first year? "Cutting out state qjmyrpll^padi ding," he says, and enactment of the $100,000,000 school aid bill, with with its accompanying educational reforms, and the state police merit system. His greatest disappointment? The Legislature's defeat of his plan to have a convention rewrite the 1870 state constitution.

Stewart, who Is In public relations at Alton Box Board Co., discussed the various types of subversive warfare and cited examples of their usage. Stewart, who was in command of counter-intelligence in Berlin, said all types have the common characteristic of requiring agents to execute the work.
