Red Probe To
Resume Today In Washington By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON (A— A closed Bearing on Communist infiltration ef defense plants was scheduled to day in a resumption of a probe Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) has claimed was held up for months by Senate investigations of him. Several unidentified witnesses were called for questioning by the Senate Investigations subcommit tee McCarthy heads. Acting Staff Director James N. Juliana said he expected McCarthy to be on band. The senator did not show up in Cincinnati for a sched uled speech Saturday night and his wife explained “the doctor put his loot down” because McCarthy's in jured elbow “has not cleared up.” McCarthy had said beforehand fiiat 42 subpoenas were issued and that a considerable number of plants in the Northeast were in volved. He said the hearings would run “right up to the first of the year.” Juliana said it is “most likely” public hearings will start tomorrow. The hearings were to be the first held by McCarthy since the Sen ate last week voted, 67-22, to con demn his conduct on grounds he obstructed “constitutional process es” and tended to bring the Sen ate into “dishonor and disrepute.” John E. Held, chairman of the Cuvier Press Club’s dinner in Cin cmnati, created something of a stir when he announced Saturday that McCarthy could not be there because he was “gravely ill” in Washington. Mrs. McCarthy said this report was “a little exag gerated.** McCarthy’s elbow was injured eeveral weeks sgo when a vigorous handshaker pushed it against a glass table top. He was hospital ised lor 11 days. Lest spring McCarthy said more than once that the 36-day public probe of his row with top Army efHcials was preventing him from digging Communists out of defense plnh, He said his subcommittee had e list of 130 to 133 Reds “poised nt the jugular vein” of the nation. Denux rata on the investigating unit urged him to give the names to the Defense Department or to toe Senate Internal Security sub committee but nothing ever came f this. Juliana said one witness expect ed te be called at the new hear ings is Homan E. Thomas, at Allentown, Pa., a former FBI un dercover agent in the Communist party. Thomas testified Oct. 13 before toe Internal Security subcommit tee, which also has conducted a hunt for Reds in defense plants. He named 230 persons, mostly in Pennsylvania, whom he said he bed known as Communists. In m weekend development, Jus tice Department lawyers were re ported to have decided it would be impractical, If not impossible to get any perjury indictments as n result of clashing testimony at toe televised McCarthy-Army hear ings. While no official announcement was made, officials said they were convinced after studying the bulky transcript that, if false statements were made, the evidence to sup port n prosecution isn't available. Navy Slates News Meet On Carrier’s Role *V ILTON C. FAY AF Military Kapartar WASHINGTON UR— Not since the War of 1812 has a British visit to American shores nettled the United States Navy as much as that of Field Marshal Montgomery. For nearly a week the Navy has contemplated, with chill and au stere silence, the latest public ob servations by Briton’s famous war rior on the future of sea power— particularly aircraft carriers. Today the Navy apparently de cided it copkl maintain aloofness no longerr It announced that to day Asst. Secretary of the Navy James Smith would hold a news conference to answer questions about the role of carrier aviation in the modern navy. Montgomery, in a recent West Coast address on modern military power and North Atlantic Treaty Organization strategy, mentioned briefly that: 1. The day of the aircraft car rier is drawing to an end. 2. The time will come when control of the set will be from the air. These were harsh words for the Navy to hear. Next Saturday at Newport News, Va., the Navy realizes an ambi tion for which it fought bitterly, the launching of the first super carrier, the 80-000-ton USS For restaL The start of the supercarrier program began only after several years of sharp argument with the Air Force over the advantages and disadvantages of big carriers vs. Long-range heavy bombers like the Page 10 T HI KEY WEST CITIZEN smmr At All Stores thru WED., DEC Bth r 727 Duval Street 1835 Flagler Avenne CUT-RITE WAX PAPER 125-FT. or ROLL . , . , 43C ''> ~ - SUNSHINE COOKIES HYDROX 12-Os.
