Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, j would make no public statement on the issue, he was reliably re-iwted today to have told party colleagues he regards McCarthy as a ‘ Republican problem Apparently Johnson is advising Democrats not to give any encouragement to Flanders, who has said he will move by mid-July for action on a motion to strip McCarthy ot his chairmanship unless the Wisconsin senator answers questions raised in 1952 by a Senate elections subcommittee about his financial affairs. The Flanders motion, which could be called up by any senator at any time, would remove McCarthy as chairman of the Government Operations Committee, as well as head of its Investigations subcommittee. Such a step is rare in Senate history. McCarthy termed Flanders' criticism of him a ‘ smear'’ and said the Vermont senator may be senile. Cooper Agrees So far only one senator — Cooper of Kentucky, a Republican — has publicly lined up behind Flanders move. Sen. Henumgs of Missouri, a Democrat, yesterday issued what was regarded as an attack on McCarthy in a speech criticizing ’ outrageous conduct’’ of “a public of-\ ficial.” He declared at Valley Forge, Pa : “The American people can no longer write it oft as ‘just poll- j tics,’ The Democrats in the Congress cannot shut the responsibility to the Republicans on the grounds that it is solely their problem. And the Republicans tan no longer indulge in the luxury of appeasement at any price Whether this foreshadowed any general Democratic movement to .support Flanders remained to be seen, but immediate indications were such would not be the ci-e Democratic leaders were said to feel that any tune the Republican leadership wants to try to chastise McCarthy it can have Democratic help But many Senate pre cedents and customs are involved that the Democrats don t w ant to Board May Purchase Site For New School Near ACC Possible purchase of site for a new elementary school near Abilene Christian College will be discussed Monday night.

Says Schine Used to Halt Investigation WASHINGTON ifi — Francis P. Carr testified today Army officials repeatedly linked talk of special Army treatment for Pvt. G. David Schine with efforts to stop Sen. McCarthy's investigation of Reds in the Army, then turned to speaking of Schine as a “hostage.” The chubby chief of staff for McCarthy’s Investigations subcommii-j tee named Secretary of the Army Stevens as having engaged in talk of preferential treatment for Schine. But he said only Army Counselor John G. Adams, to his knowledge, spoke of Schine as a “hostage.” Carr disputed much testimony given earlier in the McCarthy-Army hearings by Adams and by Stevens. Adams Charge Not True He said it was not true, as Adams charged, that Roy M. Cohn once threatened to “wreck the Army” ) and to see to it that Secretary Stevens was “through” if Schine were sent overseas, i Adams had testified that when he told Cohn Jan. 14 that Schine, a former subcommittee consultant, i might face overseas duty, Cohn | exploded with the threats. Carr, who said he was in the ' room at the time, swore that “Mr. | Cohn did not make these state-! ments,” \ “I don’t recall him saying any-; thing like that." Carr said j He did recall, Carr said, that ! Cohn told Adams it seemed premature to be talking of Schine s ! going o\ erseas since Schine had j not completed his basic Army j training. Denies Threat Carr denied also that Cohn threatened he would “get” Maj. Gen. Cornelius E. Ryan, commander of Ft. Dix, N. J.. for the “obscene way he had permitted ’ Schine to be treated while taking basic training at that post. Carr, a rotund former FBI man. was called to the witness chair when the hearings subcommittee convened for its 33rd day. Sen. McCarthy had been the witness, with his cross-examination incomplete. when the hearings were recessed Friday Chairman Mundt <R*SD> explained McCarthy was “catching up on his sleep ' after a speech-making trip to the mid-west over the weekend. McCarthy came in midway in the morning session of the hearings and took a seat and listened as Carr went on with his testimony. Conducted by Prewilt The examination of Carr was conducted by Thomas B. Prew itt, assistant counsel for the hearings ! subcommittee. He had concluded both his direct examination and cross questioning of Carr when the luncheon recess was taken. It was not immediately indicated whether Carr would continue in the witness ; chair in the afternoon, or whether In Boston. New York and other McCarthy would return to it.
