Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - July 5, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky the Sherman Adams of Kom Huv this must he said about Joe Mccarthy efforts were made to hear a witness in executive session before he appeared at an open hearing. Some witnesses spoke in one manner at an executive session and differently in open session. This often uncured Mccarthy and led to great troubles. The so called Mccarthy army hearings might have been averted. Joe Mccarthy w is not antagonistic to anyone in the army and certainly not to Robert Stevens the Secretary of the army. Nor had the so called position of private David Schmo anything to do with the Case. I know about this in do Tail and directly and a though i never testified at an of n Hearin. I did testify in executive Mission. What brought on All tin troubles was that the White House proposed that the Senate committee continue All its investigations in executive session Send the manuscripts to the White House and that the president would then deride what should be done about it. Iii a word the proposal made to tile commit e was in effect that the Senate Abrin a e its invest i Tive Powers and Law it unit subordinate to the president a clearly unconstitutional act. O o a Joe Mccarthy who wished to live at peace with the wind House was convinced to the Dav of his death that it was Sherman Adams who destroyed the Fra ooh relations Between and president Eisenhower and who evolved that proposal Fie Vert licit is i t in say and i am sure that Lite.
