word Senator Tydings has d of the Communists in the State Department is to change The assumption Is that the ings committee is investigating communist infiltration into the state department Incidentally it might also investigate homosexual ity in the state department because the homosexual is always subject to black mail and could therefore come under the control a fore- ign power whose

Watts was led from the remedy of the courts However Lyon Tyler a lawyer showed up in Wheeling as a re- presentative of Senator committee He called upon Frank Desmond reporter for the ing Intelligencer to query him concerning his report to his paper on the McCarthy speech IX OF fact that the speech itself was available to body who wanted it Mr Tyler demanded that Desmond sign an affidavit concerning McCarthy's speech Desmond Why should a reporter he asked to sign affidavits on matters reported The record is in the printed word According to the account er Desmond declined because he felt that McCarthy should have been present at the interrogation It would have upheld tic principles more adequately had lie not been so polite He should have handed Senator a copy gencer of February 10 and told him that the story is as he worte it and that is all he has to say about it He might have asked Tyler a long series of Questions as to what the purpose of his in- could possibly be Was his
