McCarthy Declares 1
Tydings Is'Lap Dog' 01 Administration By the Associated Press MILWAUKEE. Aug. 7.—Sena tor McCarthy, Republican, of Wis consin renewed his communist-in government charges yesterday and called Senator Tydings, Demo crat, of Maryland the Truman ad ministration’s “whimpering 1 a p dog.” I Senator McCarthy also said he ! Intends to continue a “bare knuckle” fight to expose Com-! munists “as long as I remain in the Senate.” Senator Tydings, reached at his home at Havre De Grace, Md., de clined to comment. Senator Tydings headed the Senate Foreign Relations subcom mittee which investigated the Me Carthy contentions that the State Department harbors Communists and Red sympathizers. “Dishonest Job” Charged. The Democratic majority of the subcommittee labelled the Me Carthy charges “a fraud and a hoax.” In a speech before the Wiscon-j sin Retail Food Dealers Associa tion, Senator McCarthy accused Senator Tydings and Senator Mc Mahon, Democrat, of Connecticut, who also was on the investigating committee, of doing ‘‘a dishonest job,” and of being “interested in protecting Communists for politi cal reasons.” Then, in leading up to his sharpest criticism of Senator j Tydings, Senator McCarthy asked:1 “Why does the Congress stand idly by while a group of Com munists, fellow travelers and their dupes (in the State Department) sabotage the efforts of the Ameri can people to hold back the athe istic Communist horde before it hits our shores? Asks About $90 Billion. “The American people want to know where and how was spent the $90 billion which the Ameri can people gave to make this na tion strong. If that money was wasted, the American people want to know, where, why and by whom. “As you know, the (Senate)1 3irl Who Killed Twin Flees itate Hospital for City Fling By th« Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7.—A jretty 14-year-old girl who killed ler twin is going back to a State lospital after a brief city fling. Alice Richard of Fresno walked into x police station yesterday and lalmly related: She climbed a wall of the State hospital at Napa Saturday, hitch hiked the 50 miles here, saw a movie and had a coke and a doughnut. Asked why, Alice countered, “Have you ever been locked up?” She was declared mentally ill in a Fresno court and sent to Napa for observation after she admitted: She shot her sleeping twin, Sally, March 19 “because I hated Sally—she was stupid and always acting like a nut.” Channel Tank Leak Causes Fire Scare River firemen answered four calls and pumped water for IVx hours yesterday when gasoline from a leaking tank at the May flower Marine Service spread a wide, inflammable slick over Washington Channel. While firemen from the Fire boat William T. Belt attempted to hose the gasoline away from docked boats in the Mayflower basin at 1300 Maine avenue S.E., the tank was drained and emer gency repairs made. There were no fires and the calls were made by anxious boat owners wno feared that even a lighted match might set off a waterfront fire. _ Armed Services Committee is charged with the responsibility of making sure that the money which we appropriate for the arm ing of this nation, and any other nation, is being properly spent. “Who do you thing is the chair man of that committee? None other than Millard Tydings—the same Tydings who headed the whitewash committee.” Senator McCarthy repeated his bitter criticism of Secretary of State Acheson and said again there is an “urgent necessity of getting rid of him if this nation is to survive.” Lack of Troops and Transport Held Bar to Surprise Landing m By Elton C. Fay Associated Press Military Affairs Reporter Lack of manpower and, to some degree, transportation apparently precludes any early, large-scale effort to upset the Korean Red army by amphibious or airborne invasion behind the lines. Nevertheless, military men here are not disposed to rule out the possibility that the time will come for use in Korea of the sea-air in vasion technique that helped win World War II campaigns in both Europe and the Pacific. Nor does it mean there won’t be more forays by small groups land ing from ships for demolition and scouting missions along the en emy-held coastlines. The departure from American West Coast ports of units of the 1st Marine Division led to a wide spread expectation on the home front that a spectacular landing was imminent. The Marines’ rep utation as amphibious landing specialists presumably gave rise to the expectation. Instead, the bri gade landed quietly at a South Korean port, then moved to the front to take up positions with troops already in battle. Odds Against Big Sneak Attack. Whatever the military or psy chological value of putting a big force behind the enemy now—to divert some of his attack force to beachhead defenses—the odds are weighted heavily against it. Every man with a gun in the Par East zone seems to be needed badly to hold the defense line. There are no troops to spare or withdraw from the front. Because the Pacific war was waged almost entirely by a series of amphibious landings, there are presumed to be a fair supply of landing craft in Gen. MacArthur’s command. But it is doubtful that numbers and specialized types needed for a substantial effort—a division or more—are immediately at hand and ready for service. On the other hand, the amount of available naval and air units needed to provide gunfire and air cover for a landing already is com paratively large. The United States Navy, to gether with ships of the British fleet assigned to the Korean war, daily dump huge tonnages of shell fire on enemy targets, in addition to bombs dropped by carrier avia tion. Some speculation over the pos sible use of airborne invasion has arisen out of the fact the United States has two airborne divisions in this country, the 82d and the 11th. The 82d was described before the outbreak of the Korean war as far nearer wartime strength and general readiness for action than any of the five Army divisions then in the United States. However, here there is the problem of transportation. It takes a great fleet of planes to move an airborne division of 12.000 to 16,000 men. For the assault phase alone it is estimated that about 800 C-82 “flying boxcars” or their equiv alent are needed. For the as sault phase ana the continuing requirement for resupplying the “airhead" with food, ammunition and replacements, more than 2.000 planes are required. In addition to menacing an en emy from the rear of his attacking force, one of the major values of an amphibious or airborne in vasion is to stop the flow of sup plies to the enemy front (the military calls it “interdiction.”) At this stage, tne United Nations forces are relying on tactical and strategic air attacks by both land and carrier based planes to carry out the effort to cut supply lines. Amphibious experts look upon Korea as neither too good nor too bad for lanaings. The West coast has several logical areas for landings, with flat country and fair beaches or harbors. However, Yellow Sea tides have wide ranges, adding difficulties in timing and selection of beach areas for going ashore. The East coast tidal range is much more moderate. But there the beaches and reefs would be more of a problem than on west. There is another disadvantage in an East coast landing: the north south ridge of mountains rises sharply from the sea, meaning that an amphibious invasion force would be confronted with natural enemy fortifications and would have to work its way westward, laterally, across the ridge lines.
