Tears hinder sorrow from becoming despair and Hunt. The Choice the republicans and the democrats each have a problem and a divided Opin Ion within their ranks. The democratic question is what do we do with president Eisenhower should they try to fight All the other republicans especially Mccar thy and pretend that the president is just a swell fellow who got into bad com Pany or shall they like or. Stevenson boldly say that or. Eisenhower is As bad As the rest or them because he is willing to use and be used by them the republicans themselves Are divided on the Issue of senator Mccarthy. Up to the present time Many have been doing a tight rope act neither for him nor against him. The idea seems to be to look like a pro Mccarthy Ite to the pro Mccarthy ites and look like an anti Mccain thy Ite to the anti Mccarthy ites. Unfortunately the senator keeps Jerk ing the rope. Whether they like it or not he is going to make them take a definite position and to those whose thinking is entirely political the Choice seems difficult. They Are afraid to guess whether Mccarthy is an asset or a liability in Short they do not know what will Hap pen if they take the Bull by the horns and boldly declare that Mccarthy is right or boldly denounce the Wisconsin Ner and repudiate his methods. Will the first or the second method help them win the congressional elections the politicians might look at it this Way. If they accept Mccarthy As a Leader and thereby make the president merely a front office Man they will anger a great Many Liberal republicans and most of those democrats who voted for Ike. This could Ryean a big vote switch Back to the democratic Side. This is what the baseball people Call a full game Lead a loss from republicans and a Cor responding gain for democrats. But if they turn thumbs Down on Mccarthy they will anger a very Strong personal following which Mccarthy undoubtedly has. Most of these people How Ever Are in the right Wing of the Republican party. If the party makes this group of voters angry where will they go they May. Of course stay Home but they arc certainly not going to vote democratic hence even at the worst this would be a half game loss for the re publicans since the democrats would not gain any votes. Of course the politicians can make things very easy for themselves by for getting political angles for a while and simply viewing the matter through the Glass of right and wrong of decency and fair play or democracy or demagoguery. We believe it was Winston Churchill who said that it was surprising How often simply picking what seemed to be the right thing even if it did not seem to be expedient turned out to be the Best poli tics in the Long run. There arc some republicans who have made no Bones about their distaste for Mccarthy. There is supposed to be some fear that these people will be punished. Right now senator Margaret Smith of Maine is supposed to be in danger Politi Cally because she took a courageous stand against Mccarthy. We believe the danger is overestimated and the people of Maine will not take Mccarthy s or Ders. We doubt if senator Smith will lose by her honesty. Much is said about the defeat of Tyc Lings in Maryland being due to Mccarthy. But Tydings himself had played the political game and As head of a congressional investigation committee he was Little improvement on Mccarthy. If the republicans know what s Good for them they will not follow the Man from Wisconsin. The democrats would like nothing better. By Drew Pearson Are some questions which investigating senators May want to ask messes. Mccarthy Cohn Adams it Al in the current attempt to get to the Bottom of the Schine incident. Also Here Are some of the possible answers. Question Why did senator Mccarthy seriously believe that the army should fear 27 year old Roy Cohn what was there that a 27-year-old lawyer could do to an Organiza Tion that has never been Defeated Why did Mccarthy suggest to the army that it faced a Long Range fight with Cohn if it did t Transfer. Pvt. Schine to new York it s pos sible Mccarthy thought Cohn could throw these influences against the army or else he thought the army could be frightened into thinking so. Answer Cohn was on intimate terms with Walter Winchell and was the pipeline by which Mccarthy got Winchell s support and fed Winchell items. Cohn also has contacts with right Wing columnist George Sokolsky and newspaper executive Dick Berlin who for Merly employed or. J. B. Matthews the Mccarthy committee counsel who was dropped after he alleged the protestant clergy was riddled with communists. Question did Roy Cohn flex his Muscles for Walter Winchell by calling James Wechsler editor of the new York Post before the Mccarthy committee after Wechsler printed a series of articles on Winch Sli. Answer Wechsler is the Only leading editor Ever called before the Mccarthy committee. In newspaper circles this crackdown was considered a Cohn move to Curry favor with win question is Mccarthy afraid of Roy Cohn Why did Mccarthy Tell the army to show no favouritism to Schine when Cohn was absent then reverse himself in Cohn s presence Why did Mccarthy make it Clear to the army he did t want Cohn to know he considered Schine a pest Cohn knew buried bodies answer Cohn knew All the secrets of the Mccarthy investigation. He knew All the bodies buried by the Mccarthy committee. He also knew the personal problems had sat in on at least one conference where Mccarthy debated what he should do about the Las vegas Sun and extraordinary allegations it published regarding his personal life which cannot be repeated Here. In Brief Cohn knew about All there was to know about Mccarthy. Question what parts of the Cohn conversations with the army were censored the army s original report on the Schine Case was about 72 pages Long but Only 34 pages wore published. What was left out answer some of the language used by Cohn was unprintable. Also in cases where John Adams the army attorney or Kis col leagues Felt they might have had hazy Mem ories the hazy portions of the record were omitted. The sliding scale of farm supports would definitely slide the Farmers of the nation into Harold Cooley . We should not permit ourselves to gel mouse trapped into another defensive Gen. Mark Clark urges removal of u. S. Troops from Korea. European junket question Why the persistent attachment of Cohn for Schine Why was he almost Savage in his demands that Schine be transferred Back to new York answer the two have been inseparable friends for some time. Schine is 26 years old had had no important experience As an investigator served with the Mccarthy committee without salary. Cohn liked to have him around took him. To Europe on a trip that would have been comic had it not so disrupted u. S. Relations. Re ported the Frankfurt Aben Posl during the Cohn Schine probe of communism in Bonn the event occurred which is still the main topic of conversations. At or. Schine announced he had put on the wrong trousers. A Driver was sent to the hotel to pick up the right ones. Or. Schine put them on then Dis covered his notebook was missing. He rushed Back to the hotel with or. Cohn to look for it. In the hotel lobby it was observed that or. Schine batted or. Cohn Over the head with a rolled up Magazine. Then both disappeared into or. s room for five minutes. Later the chambermaid found Ash trays and their contents strewn about the room. The Furni Ture was completely after lunch the two investigators missed the regular plane and took a special plane to Frankfurt. Cost Why drafted question since every american Diplomat reported on the activities of Cohn and Schine Why were they continued on the Mccarthy committee among other things they left an unpaid hotel Bill in Paris of though they were in Paris Only 16 hours. They ran up this Bill by registering at. The Crillon then going to a second hotel without registering out of the Crillon the american embassy paid the Bill answer for months both the Eisenhower administration and Republican senators have either been afraid or unwilling to tangle with Mccarthy even to make suggestions regard ing his staff. Question what Are the facts regarding Mccarthy s letter to the army on dec. 22 complaining that Schine never would have been drafted had not Pearson started screaming about answer on dec. 22, the same Day of Mccarthy s letter to the army this writer told How Schine was getting so Many special favors at fort Dix Gen. Cornelius Rya i complained about it. Earlier on july 17, this writer gave a de tailed account of Schine a various physical examinations and his draft deferments. This column which was distributed to newspapers in Advance came to the immediate attention of the Mccarthy office with the result that or. Roy Cohn demanded that the column be killed. It was not killed. But that same Clay july 17, is now revealed by the army record Mccarthy approached the army to get a direct commission for Schine since he might be drafted. If Mccarthy refers to the column As then i plead guilty. What i called attention to was that Schine graduated from Harvard at the close of the War got a draft exempt Job in the army transport service later became an executive of his father s ambassador hotel and when the korean draft Call got hot was classified 1-a. However he asked for another physical at governor s Island n. Y., where he was classified 4-f. The doctors ruled that he had a herniated disc with schizoid personality. When asked about his draft exemption Schine told this column he had become vice president and general manager of a hotel the age of 23. His father head fitted was chairman of the Board. He also became executive vice president of three the aters owned he acknowledged by his father. It was the reporting of these facts which Mccarthy called a modernized Security should be geared to developments in electronics air Power and atomic Power. That kind of Security is Well within our economic Arthur w. Radford. By Erskine Johnson Hollywood has its oscars for the year s Best and television has its . Real dignified stuff.
