Drew Pearson Denies He Ordered Report to Justice on Littell Drew Pearson today disclaimed responsibility for reports made to the Justice Department that Norman M. Littell had propa gandized in behalf of the Dutch government. Mr. Pearson was testifying at the trial of $600,000 consolidated libel and defamation suits filed against him by Mr. Littell, a former Assistant Attorney Gen eral under Francis Biddle. Mr. Littell asserts he was libeled in a Pearson column which stated that the Justice De partment was investigating re ports that Mr. Littell was active in behalf of the Netherlands government, although not regis tered as a foreign agent. Complains of Broadcast. Mr. Littell also asserts he was defamed in a Pearson broadcast which said that Mr. Littell, then an attorney for the Polish Em bassy, had arranged to get Com munist Polish officials aboard the liner Batory ahead of the United States Immigration agents in vestigating the escape of Com munist Gerhard Eisler in 1949. During the trial it has been testified that a man identified as Fred Blumenthal. said to have been an employe of Mr. Pear son. had made the propagandist charges against Mr. Littell, to the Justice Denartment. May Have Volunteered. Today the columnist said he did not authorize Mr. Blumenthal to volunteer any information to the Justice Department. He said that the assistant “may have been an eager beaver, he may have volunteered information. The case is being heard before Federal Judge Charles F. Mc- Laughlin and a jury in the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Mr. .Littell is represented by Attorneys Edward B. Williams and Murdaugh Madden. Attor neys H. Graham Morison and Samuel Abrams represent Mr. Pearson. Floor of Pacific Has Dropped A Mile, Geophysicists Told By Thomas R. Henry Scianc* Editor of Tho Star The Pacific has become about a mile deeper in the course of the last 200,000,000 years. It looks “as if the bottom had dropped out of the floor of the ocean sometime in the meso zoic,” Dr. Roger Revelle, leader of the Capricorn expedition of the Scripps Institution of Ocean ography, told the American Geo physical Union at its closing meeting here yesterday. The union adopted a resolution stating its opposition “to all at tempts to interfere with work of scientific agencies for other than scientific motives.” Although no specific cases were mentioned, j this obviously referred to the Bu reau of Standards. Geophysical evidence gath ; ered by the Capricorn expedi ! tion, partially financed by the I Office of Naval Research, in dicates that some time early in that long succession of geological ages from the first appearance of reptiles to the ascendency of mammals on earth, there was a great out pouring of lava from the planet's great depths. This was accom panied by seeping of water from the sub-crustal rocks which is still under way. Is Still Under Way. Dr. Revelle characterized it as “a terrestrial revolution which still is underway.” The Capricorn expedition, the last of four sent out to explore the floor of the Pacific, concen trated on the area between the Equator and the Tropic of Cap ricorn. This includes a great deal of the South Pacific, in cluding such island chains as the Marshalls, Fijis, Samoa and the Marquesas. Especial atten tion was paid to the great Tonga trench, extending roughly from Samoa to New Zealand. This depression reaches depths of more than 35,000 feet and thus is probably the deepest part of the sea. At places it is only about 2 miles wide. Much of the expedition’s work was devoted to experiments which eventually may explain how this feature of the planet’s surface came into existence. Dr. Revelle emphasized that he was giving only a preliminary report and that the results have not yet been analyzed. Broken by Mountains. The great chasm is broken by sea mountains, some of which may be among the highest on earth. Depth findings showed that one had an altitude of about 27,000 feet from the bot tom of the trench to its pin nacled crest. This makes it al most a rival of Mount Everest. It is probably. Dr. Revelle said, a great volcanic cone which pre sumably has arisen some time after the creation of the Tonga rift. The trench is lined by ridges, rising to within about 1,500 feet of the surface and broken with inhabited islands. The bottom of the great depth probably is very rough, bare rock. The Capricorn j scientists were unable to get any cores representing sediments. Al though they were able to get dredging apparatus to the bot tom all they succeeded in getting up were fragments of rock. Among the new geographical features found were several sub merged coral atolls which are believed to have been at eleva tions of 200 feet or more above BIG NEWS FROM YOUR . . .
