Flanders iR*Vt), who initiated the censure move against Sen. McCarthy, has filed new charges accusing McCarthy of covering up forgery and violating the Espionage Act. The special Senate committee weighing the censure harges disclosed this today during a recess of its public learings. The group went into a closed session to consider whether certain unnamed witnesses should be called to tes-afy. The public hearing had wound up on a protest from McCarthy’s lawyer that the committee’s own counsel had filed a ‘Vigorously partisan” brief on the legal issues in the case. Flanders, it was disclosed, wrote a letter dated Sept. 2 to chairman Watkins (R-Utah) concerning McCarthy’s attempted use in the Army hearings of a summary of confidential FBI information about subversive risks at the Army’s Ft. Monmouth, N.J. radar Laboratory. Flanders said it was his conclusion that either the person who obtained the document falsified it or McCarthy himself was responsible for falsifying it. The Vermont senator said McCarthy ‘‘was so heedless of the security of this document that, according to his testimony, he could not remem------------ Second Air Base Project Near Finish .
