At the same time Shivers made it clear at a press conference that so long as he controls the Mineral Wells convention next week, he will also control membership of the State Democratic Executive Committee for the next two years. Shivers was asked for comment on a statement by GOP national committeeman Jack Porter that Republican voters were responsi- ble for Shivers' reelection. Porter had isked Panhandle Democrats to return the favor and help elect a GOP congressional candidiate, Leroy LaMaster of Perryton. "That puts Porter in the same bucket with'Ralph Yarborough and tbt CIO." Shivers replied. Later he added that he-thought all Texas congressmen elected this fall will be Democrats. Shivers said he thought his vic- tory over Yarborough was a "re- statement of independence by the Texas electorate." He said he was talking about the kind of independence Texas voters showed in 1952. That was the year Shivers led Texas Demo- crats in support of Dwight D. Ei- senhower, the Republican nominee for President, defying tradition. Shivers said that 90 per cent o: the votes against him. in the Democratic primaries were no vote "for Yarborough" bul "against Shivers."

The reply was o, but that he was merely trying o qualify his answer to the ques- on. Shivers said district caucus rec- mmentations for executive com- mittee memberships at Mineral Veils would be followed "except they were unfriendly."

It took just three days for the United States, France, Great Bri- tain, Australia, New Zealand, Thai- land, Pakistan and the Philippines to reach complete accord. The treaty hangs a big "no" tres- passing1' sign on small nations in the area. It binds the eight na- tions militarily and economically, and declares each party will meet the "common danger" of armed attack in the treaty area or against any member "in accordance with its constitutional processes."

Williams told a reporter during the recess that unless Lawton re- urned to the witness stand Mc- Carthy himself would be the next witness; Eft This Williams said the investigation could end this week a view that Sen. Watkins also gave some support to. Before the recess, Sen. Case (R- SD) suggested at one point that the committee call Zwicker to testify, saying that through direct examination of him the committee might be able to develop the testi- mony that "counsel for Sen. Mc- Carthy wants to develop" from Lawton. Williams commented "that" he didnt think; Zwicker would be "eager to testify-to the Acts.. I hope to devetop" through question- ing Lawton.

Irving Peress, by McCarthy as a "Fifth-Amendment Communist." He related that McCarthy asked Zwicker to stand up" and answer several questions. When Zwicker sat down, Harding, testified, "I distinctly heard him mutter under his breath: "You S.O-B.'" Harding told the committee Zwicker then turned to two officers sitting on his right and said farther: "You see, I told you this is what we'd get." Zwicker was then commander of Camp Klmer, N.J., where Peress had been stationed. McCarthy con- tended at the time that Peress should have been coort-martialed instead 01 being given an honor- able discharge. Peress, as a witness before Mc- Carthy, has refused to answer questions as to whether he had bad Communist associations. IN 2 INJECTIONS Solk Says Simple Immunity Possible ROME Dr. Jonas E.
