McCarthy Said ‘Hitler Parallel’ W.ASHLNGTO^', June 1 .Jr—Sen Flanders <R-Vt- today accused Sen. Mci'arlhy 'R-Wis' ot Hitler-like tactics which. tl»e Vermonter said, have sown division and confusion in the nation, besmii'ched responsible government, and created “foreboding” among such mi-iMvrilies as the Jews. Flanders, ranking McCarthy in a Senate floor speech, look the position that McCarthy s actions have aided the Communists’ divide-and-drive. “Were the junior senator from Wisconsin in the pay of the Communists. he could not have done a better job for them, ” Flanders said.    ‘ Hold on Senator The 73-ycar-old \ermonier. now in his eighth year in tix? Senate, also raised the question whether Roy .M. Cohn, chief coun.sel of the McCarthy subcommittee, has some kind of hold on Moc arthy to influence his actions. Flanders also asked why Cohn showed "an al-masi passionate anxiety ’ to retain G. David Schine as a collaborator on the staff of the .McCarthy committee. Flanders said the Senate subcommittee now investigating Mc-i'arthy’s dispute with .Army offi-viaLs has not yet “dug into the real heart of the mystery.” That The board, it was disclosed tonight. reached the conclusion that the physicist, who had scientific charge of the creation of the first atomic bomb, is “a loya! citizen” but is nevertheless a security I risk. For one thing, it said, he wa.s ;    an active fellow traveler of the ;    Communists at one time and !    showed “poor judgment in contin- I    uing sorre of his past associations I into tlie present.” For another, it held that his past personal relationships of the .Army i opposition to all-out research on private, the    staff    assistant    iCohn), |    the hydrogen bomb delayed, in eland the    senator    «McCarthy.”    j    feci, a concerted attempt to make That brought from McCarthy a such a weapon.

A icious. Disbonesi He said Flanders had done a V1C10U.S and dishonest” thing in raising ‘Yaciai issues ’ concerning the search for communism. ^McCarthy said he is a Catholic. Cohn a Jew and staff chief Francis P. Carr a Protestant, but the three have worked together to fight com-munu-m vxilhout regard to religious issues. Flanders, who had attacked McCarthy in an earlier Senate speech last March 9. was the fifth Senate Republican to speak out against the Wisconsin senator since Sat- j a review of the case by its Personnel Security ’ Review Board. But hi§ attorneys ’ said that would lake too amcb time. Instead they asked that the commission itself take the case' “under immediate consideration” They also requested pennission to file a written brief by Monday and to appear in oral argument before the commis->ion. Marks said Gray voted with Thomas A. Morgan, former president of the Sperry Corp . in the recommendation that Uppenheimer s clearanc'e not be reinstated The dissenting vote. Marks said, was cast by Ward V. Evans, chemistry professor at Loyola University at Chicago. The board came to the “dear conclusion * that Oppenheimer is "a loyal citizen. * It said, however, that “1.
