The atmosphere was barely cleared of a row between County Judge Reed Ingalsve and Precinct 2 Commissioner Rufe Tittle over S. 80 right - of - way before Ingalsbe was involved in another quarrel with Precinct 1 Commissioner Claude Newberry over payments for right - of - way of the access road to Abilene Air Force Base.  This was followed by still another dispute over Newberry’s road and bridge expenditures. Im-niediately before the commissioners recessed for lunch they delay-  office of the state highway department, to present factual information concerning deeds to the U. S. right - of - way in precent 2.  “We’ve had a little advertising in the paper that has caused some confusion.” Tittle opened, “and I want to get it ironed out. I think we can clarify things in a very few minutes.”  Tittle asked Shaw to verify the fact that he has had in his possession prepared deeds covering only the right - of - way between Trent and Merkel — a distance of six miles.  “The truth is,” he declared, “I received 38 deeds from the highway department and 26 of them will have to be re-written.”  I Route Changes Asked Throughout the discussion In-  Zwicker Denies Cursing Senator  r, ”7715,?    7,    u 7 ^ gaisbe repeatedly emphasized that,  ta mg $4.9.% J7 for the Hamby, deeds would have to be chaug-!  ; ed because Tittle had requested  the highway department to change  dy provisions of October, 1953, I bond issue voted by Precinct 1-Tittle Leads Off Tittle took the stage first by asking W.

The leaders of Gov. Allan Shivers’ conservative and apparently dominating faction said last night the liberals could get a “fair hearing” before the State Executive Committee’s credentials subcommittee.  Chairman George Sandlin of the Executive Committee said every effort would be made to be fair “in the interest of harmony.” Sandlin said he hoped this would be one Texas Democratic convention without a walkout by any unhappy faction.  He's .Against Hotheads  “It look.s like we can have har-! mony and a convention the liberals ! can participate in if they want ' to. ” Sandkn told reporters after ,  the proposed highway route.  “I did request the highway department to change the route north ot Trent,” Tittle rejoined, “and by making the change 1 will save about $15.000 of the people’s money by avoiding houses that were located on the first proposed route.”  “.All through?” Ingalsbe asked when Tittle had presented his side of the argument. The county judge then accused Tittle of “branding me a liar.” <IIe referred to Tittle’s denial that he had held the right-of-way deeds since March 23. 1953).  Status of the U. S. 80 project in Precinct 2 is this: The highway was surveyed to go north of Trent and an approach to Merkel from the west was laid out to angle northward a short distance west of the city. Tittle asked that changes be made in the route at j both Trent and Merkel. Prelimi-1 nary studies have been made pre-! paratory to second surveys at each place, but to date the sec-1 ond surveys have not been made | and the proposed changes have i not been submitted to the highway | department in Austin for approval “We have no to make the change at Trent.” Shaw said, “but Roberts <Dist. Highway Engineer Jake Roberts i  General Swears Testimany True  RECESS TALK — Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis), left, walks along a corridor with his lawyer, Edward B. Williams, during a recess in the hearing of censure charges against the senator being heard by a special senate committee.  WASHINGTON (B-Brig. Gen. Ralph W. Zwicker swore today he told only the truth when he testified before Sen. McCarthy last Feb. 18. McCarthy testified last week that the decorated general at least “misstated the facts.”  This and other conflicting testimony went into the record as the special senate committee considering censure charges against McCarthy moved through what may be the last day of its hearings.  One of the charges against McCarthy is fiat he abused Zwicker at the Feb. 18 hearing, when McCarthy questioned Zwicker about an honorable discharge given Maj. Irving Peress. McCarthy has called Peress a “Fifth Amendment Communist.”  In quick succession, the tall, erect general told the special censure committee:  1. He has searched his memory carefully and has no recollection of muttering at the February hearing in New York that McCarthy was an “S.O.B.” William J. Harding of New York City testified last week he heard Zwdcker make that comment.  2. He had no intention of being evasive, arrogant or irritating  Dulles Confident U. S.

The senator, his own star defense witnessTast week, told the censure committee only last Friday that he considered Zwicker “one of the most evasive, arrogant and irritating witnesses” he had ever seen.  3. He was acting under explicit orders from higher-ups—not only in handling the Peress discharge, but in declining to answer some of McCarthy’s questions about the case.  4. He did not recall that he had ever discussed McCarthy with Maj. Gen. Kirke B. Lawton, former commander of Ft. Monmouth, N.J. Lawton testified Saturday he had the impression from conversations with Zwicker that Zwicker was “antagonistic” to the ’Wisconsin senator.  5. The case of Peress first came to his attention in August, 1953, and he was the one who gave Peress’s name to the McCarthy investigations subcommittee in January, 1954. Peress, a dentist, was discharged in February from Camp Kilmer N. J., which Zwicker commanded. The letter ordering his discharge was dated Jan. 18. McCarthy started his hearings Feb. 18.  William J. Harding of Ifew York City told the censure hearings last week he was a spectator at the February hearing by McCarthy ; into the Peress case.

Radford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the military member of the council and he was on hsmd for yesterday’s meeting — the first ever held outside Washington.  But what he recommended with respect to Quemoy — and what the council decided — «»mained a deep secret when the members headed back to Washington by plane last night, was I "nie U.S. 7th Fleet is under long-I standing M^ers to protect Formosa. the island bastion of the Chinese Natlcmalists, from any assault by the Chinese Reds.  The big unanswered question has been — and still is—whether those orders also call for defense of Quemoy, which has been under shellfire attack from the Red mainland.  Dalles, who flew here from the Far East yesterday, repeatedly declined to say categorically just what orders the 7th Fleet may  r* mark.”  “Had you had any differences with Sen. McCarthy up to that time?” asked Guy de Furia. assistant counsel of the special committee.  “No, Sir,” replied Zwicker. He went on to say that before he was ; called to testify before McCarthy that afternoon, he had a chat with 1 the senator and tdd McCarthy he j was “happy to meet him since I am from Wisconsin, too.”  1 Before Zwicker took the witness ' chair, an Army medical officer, Capt.
