WEDNESDAY. JUNE 30, 1934 1LYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) CKwSnsn FA91 GOP Said to Be Making 'Demo Scandal of Housing Probe WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Maybank (D-SC) charged today Republicans are trying to "make a Democratic scandal" out of the Senate Banking Committee's probe of swollen profits and other alleged irregularities in government housing programs. Obituary Maybank. senior Democrat on the committee, said the "real money" in '."windfall" profits "was made by the Republicans in the *East and by some very prominent Republicans." He said he could Commodity And Stock York Cotton (12:3t quotation*) j u iv ..... 3358 3372 3350 3360 Oct ....... 3388 3397 3387 3395 Dec ........ 3397 3407 Men ........ 3417 3427 New Orleans Gotten July 3360 3365 3360 3365 j name names but hoped he would not have to. Conceding that past Democratic administrations hired a "few bad administrators." Maybank said in an interview the two-pronged investigation by the Eisenhower administration and the banking group of reported housing abuses back to post-World War n days "seems to be aimed at pinning all the blame on the Democrats." The inquiry is aimed at finding evidence of collusion and other illegality in cases where builders and promoters of big apartment house projects pocketed "windfall" profits through the device of overestimating their construction costs in applying for government-insured mortgage loans. Also under study 3396 3407 are reported abuses in government 3417 3428 {insurance of loans for home im- Iprovement and repairs.

This allegedly occurred after Wyatt left the government. Wyatt, a former mayor of Louisville, Ky.. has been a close political associate of Atllai E. Stevenson, 1952 Democart- ic presidential candidate. Wyatt's name was injected into the hearing by William F. McKenna, deputy housing administrator in charge of the Eisenhower administration's own investigation of housing irregularities. Wyatt issued a statement in New York denying McKenna's charge. "No windfall profit was ever contemplated," he said. "I have no advice as to how to make such a profit and none was actually made. Actually the builder lost money on the project." Maybank demanded that Wyatt be given "every opportunity" to refute McKenn's allegations before the Banking Committee. Committee Chairman Capehart (R-Ind) has said it is "very unpleasant to expose prominent people" but that "there's going to be many of them exposed in the next 60 days." His committee is under "lots of pressures," he said, to call off the probe altogether.

GUATEMALA (Continued from Page i) bean. It was generally conceded that the army's resistance to Castillo's forces had collapsed. U.S. Ambassador John Peurifoy. who played a major advisory role in the rapid government shifts, described the outcome as "our first victory" against communism in the Western Hemisphere. Sleepless and haggard after the long conferences, he told newsmen last night he was "greatly encouraged by the present government in its determination to eliminate communism." The crackdown on the Communists and the intimation that the war's end was near brought Guatemala City to life yesterday for the first time in weeks. Anti-Communist feeling ran high. Crowds roamed the streets, tearing down Red pesters and shouting, "Down with the Communists." A large crowd nearly rioted at the Mexican Embassy and a heavy guard of soldiers protected the government officials and Reds taking refuge inside. 9 Political prisoners arrested by Arbenz's Communist - dominated police poured from the prisons. They said they had been tortured and beaten almost daily — until June 26, the day before the President was ousted. Of the four junta members who took over the government yesterday, only Monzon is generally known to the public. The others are Col, Mauricio Dubois, who was named minister of foreign relations; Col. Enrique Klos de Leon, communications minister; and Col. Jose Luis Cruz Salazar, defense minister. Monzon resigned as President Juan Jose Arevalo's Interior minister In 1950 after Congress censured him for cracking down on the Communists, then returned to the Cabinet under Arbenz as minister without portfolio. When Arbenz was forced out Sunday night, he remained as a member of Diaz's junta, and then led the faction which forced the army chief out yesterday. bv the voters. H-Bomb—No specific agreements were reached in the conferences with Churchill on use and control of the hydrogen bomb. Korean Peace Conference—Again, moment, there is little change in >>e situation. Big Three Conference—Again, the President expressed a willingness to do anything in the world for peace if there is evidence the other side is sincere. He said there was no specific understanding with Churchill regarding a possible meeting which also would include Soviet Premier Malenkov. AEC Power—The President said the reason he directed the Atomic Energy Commission to go ahead with a private power development at West Memphis. Ark., was to provide time to take a good look at with Japan.
