An on the other hand, can be made easy to understand, and can be tailored to fit the headlines neatly. This Is one of the major aecrets of the technique of that masterful, artful dodger, Senator Joe McCarthy. Consider the latest thunderbolt hurled by Senator McCarthy at the State department. McCarthy pro- duces a photostat, which includes a "chart" of subversives in the State department, ostensibly fur- nished to the State department by the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion in 1948. Twenty "Russian as well as large numbers of other subversives are named in the chart. McCarthy asserts and no one denies it that at least three of these "Russian agents" are still employed in the State de- partment. McCarthy waves his photostats and shouts that If the F.B.I. says so, "that to me is proof. .despite all the screaming yelling." BEADS ARE SHAKEN. Even some of McCarthy's more sensi- ble colleagues, like Senator Irving Ives, are impressed. And al- though it can be demonstrated that this is Just another dollop of Mc- Carthy's poisonous nonsense, it is hopeless to expect this fact to catch up with tie original charge. The photostat McCarthy waved on the Senate floor consisted of about a page and a half of a re- port of more than a hundred pages Members ot the Tri-State Hunting dog association were pulling today for this dog to win the open all-age stake at their trials on Prairie Island. The dog is Kingswere Kathy, state champion of Minnesota in 1949. It is owned and handled by H. H. Puck, local expressman, who is-shown above. Mr. Puck is an officer and active member of the local retriever club. 2-Bird Series Opens Tri-State Dog Trials By Lefty Hymes The second annual licensed retriever trials of the Tri-State Hunting Dog association to be held on Prairie Island got under way with a very difficult double series in the open-all-age stake this afternoon. Cain Prevents Friday Decision By 12-Hour Talk Weekend Recess Taken After 18-Hour Session Washington A weary Sen- ate agreed early today to a test vote Monday on rent controls, aft- er Senator Cain (R.-Wash.) had pushed the chamber to a marathon session with a filibuster lasting 12 hours. The agreement which brought adjournment at a.m. was for a vote at 11 a. m. Monday on a mo- tion by Republican Leader Wherry of Nebraska to send the bill backj to the banking committee move which, if successful, almost certainly would kill the measure. When the lawmakers finally clos- led up shop, they had been at work for 16 hours and 40 iOf the longest sessions in recent years. The decision to use Wherry's mo- tion for the bill's first test repre- sented something of a setback for Democratic Leader Lucas of Illi- nois. He had kept the Senate in continuous session in the hope of] getting an agreement to vote on' the bill itself. Democrats Confident However, Democratic leaders said later they felt they had enough votes to beat back the Wherry move in time to get a final vote on passage of the bill Monday. The measure would continue fed- eral rent controls for six months! beyond the present June 30 expira- tion date. Local communities could! get another half year of ceilings j by asking for them.

When Cain finally quit the law- makers became involved in a wrangle which kept them in ses- sion almost five hours longer. For two hours the senators pres- ent waited around for enough ad- ditional members to show up so the [Senate could transact business. JWhen 48 senators finally respond- ed to their names, Senator Know- land (R.-Calif.) suddenly moved to adjourn. While that motion lost decisively, only 46 senators voted on it, once again raising the quorum question.

Hit Truman Charges Soviet Leaders Blocking Peace President Warns Reds Extending Totalitarian Controls By Ernest B, Vaccaro St. Truman bitterly accused Soviet Russia to- day of preaching peace while "fomenting aggression and prepar- ing for war." Using language like a prosecuting attorney, he declared Russia's lead- ers, "with a cynical disregard for the hopes of have been "an obstacle to peace." At the same time, he declared that Russia's thieat of a third world war is being "offset by the growing strength of the free world" and that the United States is en- listing "for the duration" in the struggle to preserve peace. The President chose the site for a Jefferson memorial on the Mis- sissippi river front as the setting for this country's most vigorous answer to the Russian peace pro- paganda offensive. His prepared speech fairly bris- tled with charges against Russia in language in keeping with the mat- ter-of-fact phrases of his native Midwest. Time and time again he men- tioned Russia by name as he in- dicted the Soviet Union for: 1. "Maintaining the largest peacetime armed force in his- far greater than it lor tne defense or its own 2. Seeking to extend the boundaries of their totalitarian control "by means of infiltra- tion, subversion, propaganda and indirect aggression." 3. Talking democracy but set- ting up "dictatorships." 4. Proclaiminr national inde- pendence but imposing: "nation- al slavery." 5. Turning the school chil- dren of Eastern Germany "into the same kind of pitiful robots that inarched Into hopeless bat- tle for Hitler." "In the five years that have passed since the end of the war, we have been confronted with a new, powerful Mr. Truman asserted. "We had hoped that our war-time ally, the Soviet union, would join in the efforts of the whole commun- ity of nations to build a peaceful world. Instead, the Soviet leaders have been an obstacle to peace. Cites Large Army 'At home the Soviet regime is maintaining the largest peacetime armed force in history, far greater than its needs for the defense of its own boundaries. The leaders of the Soviet Union, instead of using their resources to improve the well- being of their people, are devoting a massive share of those resources to the acquisition of further mili- tary strength.

Bisson's name has figured in a Senate speech by McCarthy relating to his (Bisson's) alleged travels in China with Lat- timore and Jaffe.

More Debate There was still more debate be- fore the lawmakers finally agreed wearily to vote Monday on Wher- ry's motion to recommit the bill. Cain sipped coffee, milk and cho- colate as he pressed his one-man campaign to wear out supporters of the extension measure. Except for a short discourse on golf, he stayed close to the sub- ject, pacing restlessly around Wherry's desk. He said the proposed legislation [would deny the right of "free and looking for him and went first to the she barn. Not finding him there went outside and discovered the body floating in the water.
