Walker for labeling as - pinks or Communists . former I President Harry S. Truman, other J leading Democrats, and segments | of the U.S. press and radio-TV industries. Announcing findings of an ,in- ^fjjfligalion ordered by President Kennedy, the Army said the 24th Infantry Division's troop information program put into effect by Walker "was not attributable to any program of the John Birch Society." ', Charges that Walker had subjected troops of his command in Europe to propaganda from the militantly conservative society touched off the inquiry. '%Iong with rebuking Walker, the Army canceled his pending assignment to command the 8th Corps at Austin, Tex,, and ordered him to remain in his present post "pending eventual rcns signmcnt within the United States." Secretary of the Army Elvin J. Stahr Jr. announced "the admonishment" of Walker for "lak- iruj injudicious actions and for making derogatory public statements about prominent Americans while in command of the 2 th Infantry Division in Germany." The Army said the admonition was administered to Walker by Gen. Bruce C. Clarke, commander in chief of Army forces in Europe. The investigation stemmed fflfcm charges published by the Overseas Weekly, a privately owned tabloid newspaper widely read by U.S. servicemen in Europe. The' paper said that Walker used the 24th Division's trop Information 'program to subject Ins troops, to propaganda of the Birch Society. • " ' ( It- also said . that he told an American P-TA meeting in Augs/ »lrg .that Truman, Eleanor Ros- cvelt, and former Secretary of State Dean Achesbn were "definitely pink." in the same speech, the paper said, the 51-year-old general said 60 per cent of the American press and^ radio-TV industry are Communists.
