Zwicker, McCarthy’s questioning of Zwicker. Camp Kilmer, N.J., cwnmand-er widened a growing rift between the Wisconsin senator and Pentagon officials and helped touch off the lengthy McCarthy-Army hearings. Secretary of the Army Stevens accused McCarthy of browbeating the general. McCarthy brought up the incident under questioning before a ; Senate Rules subcommittee which is studying the need and possibility of writing new rules to govern Senate investigations. Zwicker ‘Arrogant’ “Some might say I was impatient with him,” McCarthy said of Zwicker. ”1 don’t think I was.” But he said he considered Zwicker ‘‘the most arrogant, the most Under McCarthy’s repeated questioning he said he did not think whoever had approved it should be discharged. The record of the hearing, published later, showed McCarthy then replied: Not Fit for I’niform “Then, general you should be re-nvoved from any command. Any man who has been given the honor of being promoted to general and who says, ‘I will protect another general who protected Communists.” is not fit to wear that uniform, general.” .McCarthy said also his commit tee is not yet through with the case of Annie Lee .Moss who suspended as a Pentagon employe after McCarthy said testimony showed she was a former Communist party member. She denied the charge and was reinstated after Mrs. Mary Mark-ward, a former undercover informant for the FBI, conceded she could not identify personally the Annie Lee Moss she said was a dues-paying Communist. The Pentagon said Mrs. Moss now is working in a non-sensitive job while her case is under consideration.

Long Conference Battle Due, Now WASHIfJGTON, July 27 fAP) — Bone-weary senators approved President Eisenhowers sweeping atomic energy program, with some basic changes, tonight on the 13lh day of a hot debate. The tally was 57-28. The vote approved an omnibus measure opening the atomic field to private industry and authorizing the President to reveal some nuclear secrets to foreign Allies. The bill goes now to a Senate-House conference where another stiff skirmish, behind closed doors, is expected in ironing out major differences. The Senate wrote in amendments requiring companies taking part in the atomic power program to share their patents with other concerns for 10 years, and authorizing the Atomic Energy Commission and some other government agencies to operate atomic power plants. The House voted for normal patent rights, except for developments created under government auspices, and specifically barred the AEG from getting into large-scale power production. Threaten Fight Senators who fought to write public power features into the bill have threatened another long battle if they are dropped in conference. At the finale, the Senate had considered the measure almost exclusively for approximately 168 hours. Senate Republican Leader Know-land called that a record for concentrated attention on a single measure.
