got The N«w», Prederlek, Md., Saturday, December l v 1951 Mrs. Smith ffilsAtTaft WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 »«publican S e n a t o r Margare Chase Smith of Main* said toda Senator Taft tR-Ohio) made "« pretty extravagant statement" in aiming Communist charges agains the CIO during his 1950 campaign for re-electioh to the Senate. Mrs. Smith's thrust at her GOP colleague came .during a Senate inquiry into the Ohio Senatoria election which Taft won by a thumping majority. Reading from a* speech Taft made in Cleveland in October 1950, Mrs. Smith noted that the Ohio Senator had this to say of the CIO Political Action Committee (PAC), one of his major foes in the campaign: "The PAC was conceived in Communism, had Communist mid- and its period by Communist at its birth, nurtured in wives assisting was carefully formative teachers." Turning to Willis D. Gradison of Cincinnati, Taft's campaign manager last year, Mrs. Smith inquired: "Wouldn't you say that this is a pretty extravagant statement you couldn't back up with facts?" "I certainly couldn't back it up," Gradison replied. "I have no doubt the Senator at least attemp ted to back it up." Gradison said he would, not contend that the C1O-PAC was "controlled" or "dominated" by Communists, but would say it was "infiltrated" by Reds, at least until the CIO threw out several allegedly pro-Communjst unions. Reds Opposed Taft Senator Monroney (D-Okla recalled Gradison's earlier testimony that Communist leader Gus Hall had written "a blueprint" for the campaign against Tafl. Hall was one o£ the-11 top Red leaders convicted of conspiracy to advocate the violent overthrow of the Government. Monroney said he hsd read Hall's article and could not see that "reasonable men" would think it blueprinted the campaign against Taft. Gradison conceded that perhaps "blueprint" was the wrong word. He suggested it might have been better to say simply that the Communists opposed Taft. "This type of guilt by association," Monroney said, "1 think is very unfair. We're going to tear down our democracy unless we establish some sort of Marquis of Queensberry rules in these matters." Separate Trials Denied Defendants BALTIMORE, Nov. 30-~W-Separate trials were denied today to six defendants charged with violating the Federal Smith Act by carrying on Communist activities in Maryland. VCT,·,..-···-:.-. Federal Judge W. Calvin Ohes- nut, who previously had set the joint trial date of the defendant? for January 21, also overruled severs: other motions filed on behalf of the four men and two women. One of Ihe motions challenged the composition of the jury which indicted six persons. In the first instance, .Judge Chesnut ruled that the indictment charges a conspiracy in which alJ of the defendants were joined, and nothing had been established in proceedings, before him to justify separate trials. The defendants contended that the grand jury did not contain a proper proportion of manual workers', and this was in violation of their constitutional rights. Judge Chesnut. in his ll-page opinion, recounted that the 23- member jury consisted of three professional persons, four sales or clerical persons, two manual workers, eight retired persons snd three housewives. He said none of the defendants seemed to be manual workers, although they claimed, as avowed Communists, to have dedicated their efforts to the Interest of "working people as a class." The defendants are: Philip Frankfeld, Mrs. Regina Ftankfeld, George Aloyisius Meyers, Leroy Hand Wood, Mrs. Dorothy Rose Blumberg and Maurice L. Braverman, an attorney. Will's Provisions Held Too Indefinite WATERLOO^ ia., NOV. 30 w)-- The will of a man who left a $70.000 trust fund to "persons who believe in ihe fundamental principles of the Christian religion" was ruled invalid here today. District Judge Shannon B. Chad- ton, in throwing out the will of Dr. W. B. Small, a Waterloo physician, asserted: "Only by unpermissable assumption of omniscience can the trustees purport to execute the provisions of this will." He said the court had no right to go into the question of "what is a Christian." declaring: "Any attempt here to ascertain o r circumscribe t h e authority sought to toe reposed 'in the trustees requires excursions into a metaphysical field that is, and should be, out of bounds for the court of an organised society of human beings founded upon the principle of separation of church and state." The decision follows a widely- publicized trial last month in which 10 nephews and nieces of the Methodist doctor contested the will on the ground that it was impossible to determine what persons are "promulgating the fundamental principles of Christian religion." Widely varying views as to 'what is a Christian" were ex- Dressed ,by 10 clergymen and one ayman. called as witnesses in the trial. Dr. Small was 77 when he died n October, 1939. He was childless and left his wife as survivor. He established a small fund for his wife until her death and further jrovided that on her death the trustees were ( to distribute the estate to such persons as they "feel are directed by God. the Father. Fesus Christ, the Son and Holy Spirit." Mrs. Small died in April, 1949. The judge ruled that Dr. Small died intestate and ordered the rustees to distribute the property 'in accordance with the statutes of descent and distribution of the State of Iowa." This would mean he 10 nephew* and nieces would Khare In the estate.

In their statements, the regents said: "We believe at the commencement of each .school day the ad, of allegiance-to -ihe flag might well be joined with this act of reverence to God: 'Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon thce, and we beg thy blessing upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country'."
