Full Debate Set 1
On McCarthy,
Knowland Says
Flanders Resolution j
Comes Up Tomorrow; ]
Alternative Offered 1
1
By Cecil Holland
Senate Republican Leader '
Knowland of California today
promised opportunity for "a full '
dress debate” on proposals to
censure or investigate Senater 1
McCarthy and his activities.
The Senate is scheduled to |
face up to the McCarthy contro- !
versy tomorrow when Senator
Flanders. Republican, of Ver
mont. calls up a resolution of i
censure.
Senator Knowland forecast a
debate possibly running several
days. He described this as his
answer to Senator Flanders and
others who, he said, “seem to be
giving some inference that some
in the Senate did not want to
stand-up and be counted.”
Substitute Move Offered.
The Knowland statement came
amid these other developments
in the McCarthy situation:
1. Senator H. Alexander
Smith. Republican, of New Jer
sey, introduced a resolution he
said he would offer as a substi
tute for the Flanders proposal.
His resolution calls for appoint
ment of a special committee
headed by Vice President Nixon
to investigate “the alleged good
or evil of so-called McCarthy
ism.” Senator Flanders said he
would oppose the Smith move as
a substitute for his resolution,
but would support it as a sepa
rate motion.
2. Senator McClellan of Ar
kansas, who is regarded as hold
ing the key to Democratic
action on the anti-McCarthy
proposals, told the Star in a
long-distance telephone inter
view from Little Rock that he
would be unable to be in the
Senate tomorrow when the cen
sure resolution is called up. Sen
ator McClellan said he would
have to remain in Little Rock for
the certification of his primary
election vote. Pending his re
turn to Washington the Senator
withheld any commitment on
the anti-McCarthy moves.
Drops Tabling Plan.
Senator Knowland, in an
nouncing that he wHI allow a
full-scale debate on the anti-
McCarthy proposals, said he
has abandoned his plan to head
off discussion on the Senate
floor by moving to kill the
Flanders resolution by tabling
it. Senator Flanders has said
he would recognize a vote on
such a motion as a vote, in
effect, on his own resolution.
“Since Senator Flanders and
others seem to be giving some
Inference that some in the
Senate don’t want to stand up
and be counted,” Senator
Knowland said in an interview,
"we are going to give a
demonstration that no one in
the Senate is objecting to mak
ing a decision and casting a
vote.”
The Californian also said he
had nothing to do with the
counter-resolution proposed by
Senator Smith.
Senator Knowland told re
porters he will withold his tabl
ing motion to let the debate on
the Flanders censure resolution
run its full course. He added
that he would not be surprised
if the debate runs through Sat
urday and Monday.
In the event the debate should
run until Monday, Senator Mc

TOKYO, Friday. July 30.
Peiping radio said today Com- ,
munist China had rejected a
United States protest over the
shooting down of a British air- .
liner off Hainan last Friday with
a loss of three Americans.
At the same time, the Com
munist radio disclosed that Red
China had protested to the
United Nations the shooting
down of two Chinese planes by
United States carrier fighters off
Hainan Island Sunday.-
In announcing that the United
States protest had been rejected.
Peiping said that two British
notes of protest delivered to
the Chinese Foreign Ministry
Wednesday had been accepted.
Regular Channels Avoided.
In its own protest, Peiping de
toured diplomatic channels and
went direct to the United Na
tions.
A Chinese language broadcast
heard in Tokyo said the protest
from the Foreign Ministry was
addressed to the U.N. Secretary
General Dag Hammarskjold and
asked that it be distributed to >

surplus commodities such as
grain, butter and other staples.
There was no estimate avail
able of hew much relief might
be needed, but the White House
said very rough estimates put
the immediate needs at about $4
million.
The Surplus Disposal Act,
signed by the President on July
10. contains a provision author
izing him to use surplus com
modities for emergency relief
to free nations or to “frieendly
and needy populations without
regard to the frieendliness of
their government,” the White
House pointed out.
First Use of New Law.
Gen. Eisenhower’s action to
-1 day was the first application of
the new law in the foreign field.
Surplus commodities were used,
however, under an arrangement
with the Foreign Operations
Administration to help relieve
farming conditions in East Ger
many last year when Germans
under Communist rule crossed
into West Berlin to get food
parcels.
The Kremlin turned down
Gen. Eisenhower’s offer last
summer to donate sls million
worth of food for East Germany.
The system was set up for dis
tributing food parcels to East
Germans who went by the
thousands daily into West Ber
lin to get them. Despite har
rassment and hundreds of ar
rests by the Communist au
thorities in East Germany, a
total of 5,557,000 food parcels
were distributed in the 10-week
program that ended last Octo
ber 11.
In today’s offer, the President
said the relief foodstuffs could
be made available “without de
lay” and could be distributed to
a mutually acceptable interna
tional agency such as the Red
Cross.
Puts Reds on Spot.
As in the case of East Ger
many, the President’s offer today
put the Eastern European Com
munist governments on a spot.
If they accept American aid,
they will be admitting their own
inability to feed their peoples.
If they turn down the offer, the
flood victims under the Red yoke
can be expected to blame their
Communist rulers for letting
them starve.
White House Press Secretary
James C. Hagerty read the
President’s statement to report
ers shortly after noon. He said
it had been the first erder of
business at a Cabinet meeting
beginning at 11 a.m.
In the areas of free Western
Europe affected by the flood
American soldiers already have

and clothing relief needs.

Senators Okay Plan
For Two New Spans
Across Potomac
By George Beveridge
The Senate District Commit

a compromise bill calling for
two new Potomac River bridges
—one just upriver from Arling

stitution avenue and a city by
pass bridge at Jones Point, Alex
andria.
The downtown area bridge,
which would pass just south of

the controversial Roosevelt
Memorial Island, emerged sud
denly yesterday as a compromise
location which has the full sup
port of area highway, planning
and park officials.
\ Even Hermann Hagedom, sec
retary of the Theodore Roosevelt
Association, which strenuously
opposed earlier-bridge proposals
which would have crossed Roo
sevelt Island, described the new
location as "an excellent plan
... a masterly compromise.”
Here to Fight Plan.
Mr. Hagedom. who had come
to Washington from New York
yesterday to fight an earlier
bridge plan, stayed on as a guest
at today’s luncheon-business
session of the committee. One
subcommittee aide quipped:
“He came down to give us the
dickens and stayed for lunch.”
Chairman Case, who took a
leading role in bringing about
the bridge compromise, said the
two-bridge bill probably will
come before the Senate on a
call of\he Senate calendar
Saturday, if it passes—and Sena
tor Case feels the chances are
good—it will go directly to the
House for action.
Could Avoid Conference.
It would be possible for ihe
House to adopt the approved
Senate version without the bill
ever going to conference if the
House sees fit.
The way for immediate House 1
action would be paved by the !
fact that the House already has j
passed a bill to authorize the !
Jones Point bridge. The new
two-bridge Senate bill simply
amends the House measure, tack
ing on the central area span.
Representative Broyhill, Re
publican, of Virginia, who auth
-1 ored the Jone 4 Point measure,
said he would strongly support
the two-bridge compromise.
The House-passed Jones Point
bill calls so? the Federal Gov
ernment to pay for the $14.9
million bridge proper, with
Maryland, Virginia and the Dis
trict paying for approaches to
serve the six-lane bridge. One
modification in the Senate bill
calls for the Interior Department
rather than the District to
supervise construction and (Oper
ate the bridge. But it could not
be built until the two States
firmly committed themselves to
build the necessary approaches.
$400,000 Available.
The bill authorizes $24.5 mil
lion for the six-lane central
area bridge which would be built
by the District and paid for with
city funds supplemented by nor
mal highway Federal aid money.
The District already has in hand
$400,000 which could be applied
immediately to planning the
new crossing.
The central bridge would tie
into all major existing roads in
Virginia. On the District side,
jits main connection would be
Twenty-fourth street, which
would be developed as a major
north-south expressway, al
though it also would connect
with Constitution avenue and
other main streets.
The sudden agreement on the
new location broke a two-year
; deadlock between highway and
planning leaders and also paved
l way for agreement on the
so-called “inner belt” network
i around the congested part of
town which is the key to major
street improvements to be made
during the next 10 years.
The Senate committee acted in
only about 5 minutes as Senator
Case reported the unanimous
approval of all agencies con
cerned. Senator Neely, Demo
crat, of West Virginia, moved
adoption of the Bill without
change and his motion was
unanimously approved.

Revival of Car Pools
Being Considered as

Commissioners May Get

Officials Are Opposed

such a recommendation before

submitted, suitable for White

The matter may be raised be
fore the regular Commissioners’
Board meeting today.
Traffic Director George E.
Keneipp was understood to be
supporting the proposal. While
Mr. Keneipp would issue no
comment, it was believed the
traffic department; favors re
-1 establishing a Federal office that
would arrange for formation of
car pools by which employes
would be brought to and from
work daily.
Not only would street traffic
and parking congestion be re
lieved downtown under the plan,
but tardiness at work would slack
off, traffic officials contend.
Mr. Keneipp often has pointed
out that vehicular traffic counts
on the city’s major highways
have shown that 60 pel cent of
the passenger cars entering and
leaving the District are occupied
only by the drivers. An additional
15 per cent are occupied by only
one passenger, the department
has reported.
The proposal before Commis
sioner Prentiss would establish
a car pool registration office for
all Government agencies located
in the Metropolitan Area.
An official of Capital Transit
Co. greeted the suggestion with
scorn.
j “These are not wartime condi
! tions now,” he said. “The plan
lacks merit. Its only effect would
be to Increase traffic congestion
in downtown Washington and
reduce the number of public
transit passengers.”

Addressed to her brother Ar
