Report Gives Reds GoSign By JAMES MARLOW Washington books seem just about closed on any further senate investigation into the charges of Senator McCarthy Wisconsin republican that the state department is loaded with communists A subcommittee of 5 3 democrats and two republicans been investigating the case ever since McCarthy 1st began startling the nation with his charges last February Monday the case came to a harsh and grinding halt when the 3 of Mary land Green of Rhode Island and McMahon of a report on what they found after 5 months Strong Language They condemned McCarthy in language that ranks with the fiercest senators have ever used against another senator They called him a liar They said his whole case was a hoax and a fraud McCarthy used some strong language too He said the major ity report was gigantic in its fraud and deep in its deceit a green light to the red 5th column in the United States The most loyal stooges of the kremhn could not have done a better job of giving a clean bill of health to Stalins 5th column McCarthy blasted The two republicans on the subcommittee were Lodge of Mas sachusetts and Hickenlooper of Iowa The latter said nothing in writing Lodge did He made a written report of his own But in his 15000 words on the McCarthy case he never once mentioned his fellowrepublican McCarthy by name He didnt mention the democrats either Probe Is Over But Lodge said the whole case was was too big for a senate sub committee to handle thoroughly This coupled with the report of the democrats adds up to one thing The senate investigation is later on the

the admission of communist China into the UN is an essential step toward ending the Korean war Nehru also call ed for the seating of communist China which has been recognized by India and for the return of Russia to the security council In a 2nd message to Stalin Tuesday the Indian prime min ister called the Russian reply encouraging and said he was contacting the other govern ments concerned However the United States and most of the noncommunist mem bers of the United Nations were expected to insist on their pre vious condition that negotiation for a Korean settlement be pjre ceded by a return of North Ko rean forces to their own territory north of the 38th parallel Advance indications were that Acheson with the sanction of President Truman would use the U S exchange with the Indian prime minister as a bid for the backing of Asias millions for the United States and the United Nations In drafting the reply Acheson had the delicate problem of avoiding any peril of alienating Nehru and Indian without com promising the firm American rock bottom terms for settle ment of the Korean crisis By STERLING F GREEN AVashington Tru man will call for more men money and authority to deal
