One thing was sure: Presi- dent Eisenhower could dispel the cloud. But it seemed doubtful he would choose to do so. Acting Chairman Mundt (R-SD) of the Senate Investigations sub- committee arranged an afternoon conference with Atty. Gen. Brown- ell to discuss the issues. He was under instructions to seek some modification in a pres- idential order forbidding disclosure to the subcommittee of discussions strictly within the administration of the row between Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) and high Pentagon of- ficials. The order was prompted by re- fusal of Army Counselor John G. Adams to give details of a Jan. 21 conference Adams said was at- tended by .White House aides and other high officials. McCarthy said it appeared that the charges against him were- "conceived and instigated" then. Several subcommittee members expressed doubt that the hearings, recessed until next Monday, will ever be resumed unless the Eisen- hower order is altered. Termed 'Iron Curtain' McCarthy termed the order an "iron curtain" and "this cover- up." Asked by newsmen whether he would refuse to testify in the bearings if the directive stands, he replied: "I would not speculate on what happens in that event." Mundt said the decision to re- cess the hearings, voted by the four subcommittee Republicans over the objections of the three Democrats, contains nothing which "even remotely implies a discon- Historic Decision of the U.

The announcement said that: "Because of the origin of these rms, the point of their embarka- on, their destination and the uantity of arms involved, the De- artment of State considers that lis is a development of gravity."

"She kept putting me off and I made up my mind to give her cantharidin to stimulate her desire for me.

The decision was by a 3-2 vote. The Appellate Division is the ap- peals division of the State Supreme Court. "The South will not abide by nor is the center of Communist obey this legislative decision by a political court. We will take the truth in an exchange of charges between McCarthy and Secretary of the Army Stevens and their aides. The Army side has accused McCarthy and two staff employes, Roy M. Conn and Francis P. Carr, of using improper pressures to try to win favored treatment for Pvt. G. David Schine. Schine was an unpaid consultant to the subcommittee until he was drafted last November. McCarthy, who normally heads the group, has stepped off it for this inquiry. McCarthy and his two aides have countered that Stevens and Adams used Schine as a "hostage" in (Continued on Page 4, Column 6.) HEARING Tax Claims Filed Against State Firms ST.

Rep. Winstead (D-Miss) called it a "tragic ruling" but too surprising in view of "the caliber of men" on the court. Sen. Russell said the court has become a "pliant tool" of the executive; branch of the government.

The court said segregation of itself deprives Negro children of equal opportunities.

The committee was created by the 1953 Legislature when it abol- ished the post of state mental health commissioner and provided instead for a medical director.
