swering questions about alleged Communist or proCommunist ac tivities They have succeeded in avoiding answering the questions The Fifth Amendment to the constitution for bids compelling anybody to testify against himself McCarthy chairman of the Sen ate investigations subcommittee is vacationing on the West Coast Be fore he left Washington however he laid the groundwork for a court action to define the circumstances under which a witness may prop erly decline to answer The Wisconsin senator did this in questioning the wife of Edward Rothschild the now suspended Government Printing Office book binder who has refused to say whether he was a Communist or whether he ever stole secret docu ments from the GPO Mrs Rothschild too refused to tell McCarthy whether she is or has been a Communist

only legal ground for a witness declining to answer Ford a well known Washington attorney who has specialized in Fifth Amend ment cases challenges the sen ator to produce a single court de cision backing up his stand It doesnt make the slightest difference the lawyer says whether the answer a witness might give would be true or false Perjury is not involved here The real test is whether any

charter of the United Nations contains serious inade quacies and needs to undergo im portant alterations In a speech prepared for the American liar Association Dulles said he believes the administration can achieve a better world in the fncc of the fact that mannow the power to destroy himself But he said the UN would have to be changed to make this possible Atomic Bomb He recalled that the charter was drafted and signed at SHU Fran cisco in early 1945 when none oC us knew of the atomic bomb which was to fall on Hiroshima on Aug added The charter is thus a pro atomic age charier la this sensa it was obsolete before it actually came into force Dulles went on to say that as one who was at San Francisco I can say with confidence that if the delegates there had known that the mysterious and immeasurable pow er of the atom would be available us means of mass destruction the provisions oC the charter dealing with disarmament and the regula tion of armaments would have been far more emphatic and realis tic Dulles said the second inade quacy arose from the placing of reliance in a peacetime continua tion of the wartime partnership of the United States Britain and Rus sia with the result tlmt power for action was concentrated in the se curity council with its veto ThJ Assembly voting procedure gives that body only an advisory roie he said 3rd The third inadequacy Dulles said is the fact that the General Assembly has in a d e but little progress in establishing funda mental law among nations embody ing eternal priclples of justice and morality Dulles told his audience of ycrs that under the charter itself the General Assembly in 19515 must consider calling a charter review meeting He s n i d the United Slates will then vote in favor of such a conference Dulles devoted much of his speech to a review of efforts in the recent session of Congress to limit the authority of the President in the field of foreign affairs Ha said this look the form of propos als to prevent possible future abuses of the Presidents power to make treaties In this connection Dulles said lhat during the past session the Senate approved 23 treaties 12 of which according to Dulles legal advisors would be unconstitu ional if the proposed amendment lad been in effect because they leal withmatters of state jurisdic tion such as negotiable instrument laws local licensing laws etc Dulles continued in the case of eight of these 12 treaties the vole was 8G yeas to one nay Included in the 8G who voted in favor of these treaties were 55 of the 64 senators who were originally listed as sponsors of S J Resolution 1 which would have made the treaties unconsti utional AP Wirepholo HE SAID HE WAS Jones 4 tells her mother Mrs George Jones and a detective how she and
