McCarthy and evidently signaled a lengthy new investigation of the Wisconsin Republican's conduct. Sen. Knowland of California, th GOP leader, predicted appointmen by Vice President Nixon "within 48 hours" of a six-member inquiry committee charged with siftinj nearly 50 overlapping charges against McCarthy, the Senate's controversial Red hunter. In the face of a setback in his efforts to force an immediate showdown on the censure issue', McCarthy called for "morning, af- ternoon and evening sessions" of the group to draft a speedy report.

Nunan Jr., once the nation's head tax collector, was sentenced today to five years imprisonment and a fine for income tax evasion. Nunan was sentenced by Judge Walter Bruchhauscn who said that Nunan's conduct "cannot be con- doned." The judge said Nanan's crime was made greater by the fact that he had- been charged with en- forcing the laws. Nunan was appointed U.S. com- missioner of internal revenue by the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt and served in the post from 1944 to 1947. He was convicted on a five count indictment in which he was ac- cused of reporting his income for 1946 to 1950 as when it actually was The gov- ernment eaid he paid taxes total- ing when he should have President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman, after regular army units and mili- tary academy cadets had battled the 700 irregulars sporadically for 12 hours yesterday with mortars and tanks. Twelve persons were killed and 42 wounded in the battling around Roosevelt Hospital, where Castillo men were camped on the outskirts of the capital. The fight- ing, outgrowth of weeks of tension between the 'regular troops and the revolutionists mushroomed from a daw'n -brawl between cadets and members of the President's force. One report said the trouble started in a house of prostitution. A cease-fire finally took effect at p.m. and the 700 liberation army men surrendered their arms to regular array officers. The rev- olutionists were ordered to return to their homes throughout the coun- try today. The junta ordered a curfew into effect at 9 p.m. and warned that military patrols would take critics put under oath before the special committee to repeat their "scurrilous, false" charges. If they do that, he said, they will "either indict themselves for (perjury" or "prove what consum- mate liars they are." The Senate's vote sent to the special committee a censure mo- tion by Sen.

Age Affidavit No Legal Defense Oi; Liquor Charge ST. PAUL Ufi An affidavi as to age taken by a bartender i no legal .defense .to a charge o selling liquor to a minor, Atty Gen. Burnquist ruled today. Winston C. Johnson, city attor ney at Faribault, asked Burnquis if a bartender, who is a notary public, may require persons to make an affidavit swearing they are 21 before liquor is served. Burnquist .eaid there is no law prohibiting a bartender from doing so, but pointed out there is no statute msiing an affidavit, thus obtained a legal defense to a charge of selling intoxicating liquors to a minor.

Ives (R- Knowland amended his mo- tion to call for a progress report from the group before Congress adjourns, perhaps within two weeks. The majority leader said if the committee finds it can't com- plete its investigation by then, the Senate will have to decide whether it wants to stay on in Washington to await a final report while House 1C years, a Lambe'S conference 'for bishops only .is held in London.

Bishop Keeler is- sued the invitation for Minneapolis after it was decided at the 1948 Lambeth conference to hold the congress in the United States. Minneapolis was chosen as host city because it affords international delegates arriving from both coasts a central meeting point and an opportunity to see part of the country. McCarthy Makes Publitteifer Hitting Marshall WASHINGTON Sec- retary of War Harry H. Woodring says he'once "thought very highly" of Gen. George C. Marshall "but I lost faith in him." Woodring had a hand in having Marshall named Army chief of staff in World War II, but a letter made public yesterday by Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) quoted the for- mer Democratic secretary as say- ing six weeks ago that Marshall "would sell out his grandmother for personal advantage." Marshall, reached at his home in Leesburg, Va., declined com- ment.

A dozen or eo were hurt. Offi- ials reported none apparently uffer critical injuries. The 29 passengers and eight crewmen aboard the Air France lane, flying from Paris to Mexico Sty via New York, were ordered to a Norwich hospital, six miles away, for precautionary checkups. A hospital spokesman said "three or four" survivors suffered frac- tures and could be described as seriously hurt. One witness reported that the turned back at Idlewild Air- port in New York by rain and low ceiling? "came down with a bang." Once it hit the rain-sodden field the plane skidded about a half mile, bounced into the air and sheered off the tops of a row of trees.

He himself escaped with a cratched hand although he said he was the last to leave the plane. The plane mowed down a row of rees on the farm of Valentine ebastian.

Miss Denyse Hebert, 26, of Long- ueuil, Que., returning home on the plane from a three weeks trip to France, gave this description of the accident: "We were circling around over New York for an hour and a half, trying to land.

"I saw the right wing catch fire. The fire got to the cabin before they all got out, and a few people were burned; but I don't think they were burned badly." One of the paesengers was Pedro Pelaez Jr., 41, of Mexico City, who told a reporter while being treated for minor cuts at the Norwich Hospital, that this was his fourth plane craih.
