The president made the state ment Monday evening ashean nounced the appointment The senate confirmed the 9 other UN nominations made by Mr Tru man but did not act on Jessup before adjournment The UN opens its general assembly in Paris Nov 6 Congress is recessed until Jan 8 In a lengthy probe by a sub committee Senator Me C a r t h y and HaroldEStassen former republican governor of Minnesota and now president of the University of Pennsylvania attacked Jessup as a friend of communist causes The subcommittee voted 3 to 2 against confirming Jessup He is an arnbassadoratlarge and a top aide to Secretary of State Ache ion McCarthy longtime critic of the state department and of Jessup told the subcommittee Jessup had in the past followed every twist and turn of the communist line Jessup replied under oath that he had never knowingly aided communism or any communist cause and had long been an en emy of communism From Vandenbert Ia several appearances before the subcommittee Stassen charged that Jessup had given false testi mony in denying that he never considered U of red China He also said he had been told by the late Senator Ar thur H Vandenbergthat Jessup at tended white house conference and was among supporters there of a recommendation to shut off U S aid to Jessup denied Stassens state ments said he was skipping like a grasshopper from one accusation to another to

socalled docu mentation introduced in support of these charges bordered on fraud Ambassador Jessup was at tacked for being at a meeting which he did not attend and for policy recommendations which he never made Despite his record and despite the patent falseness of the charges made against him Mr Truman said it is alleged the American people do not have confidence in Ambassador Jessup this I find unbelievable Senator Gillette DIowa who voted against Jessup in the sub committee said he did so because whether justified or not there is a considerable segment of our peo ple who lack confidence in
