Missing Witness Faces
Senate Contempt Charge
ly the Associated Pratt
The Senate has charged Rus
sell W. Duke, former San Fran
cisco public relations man, with
contempt of Congress for re
fusing to obey a summons issued
by Senator McCarthy’s investi
gations subcommittee.
Duke failed to show up at a
public hearing last month. The
committee said it wanted to
question him about reports he
had collected approximately
$34,000 in influence-peddling
cases over a period of two and
a half years. He was last re
ported in Montreal, Canada.
Senator McCarthy, in asking
the contempt citation, described
the matter as “an exaggerated
case of influence peddling hav
ing to do with the Bureau of
Internal Revenue. ”

Dunant was a witness to the
bloody battle of Solferino in the
Franco-Austrian War of 1859.
The suffering of the wounded
convinced him there should be
some international organization
to care impartially for those
wounded in battle. The Red
Cross was organized eventually
under his guidance.
