Schmidt, 28, the pilot, of Del Rio, Tex., and Capt. Glen E. Collins, 30, radar observer, of Indianapolis. The two were on a routine train- ing flight, Truax officers said. Residents of the south and s iuth- west parts of Madison reported they heard the plane explode early Monday afternoon. Search crews found a crater dug by the falling plane in the University of Wiscon- sin's arboretum area on the lake's south side. The arboretum is a wildlife research site. Shattered fragments of the plane were scattered about and two un- opened parachutes, an oxygen tank and bits of personal clothing were found in the water-filled crater. The bulk of the wreckage was buried deep in the muck. ner Sidney Jensen said today that an inquest will be called to probe the acident that caused the coun- ty's 12th traffic fatality of 1953. He did not indicate when the inquest -would be held. The victim is Glenn Goodness, 36-year-old Nekoosa, Wis., man who was killed instantly about noon Monday when he was thrown from a pickup truck as it left County Trunk HH, three miles west of Mather. Mather is a small town in Juneau County near the corner of Jackson, Monroe and Juneau counties. He suffered a fractured skull. j Goodness was a passenger in the i westbound Wisconsin Conservation '.'ommission pickup truck driven by Harry Reber, also of Nekoosa, who told authorities the pair was the the ditch and struck a telephone pole. Reber was not injured and the truck was not seriously damaged. He said that he knew Goodness was dead but was able to drive the truck out of the ditch and went to Mather to notify authorities. Monroe County authorities were first summoned, but Jackson County Sheriff Paul Cooper, Under- sheriff Dale Neal, Traffic Officer Guy Hobart and Jensen were call- ed when it was found that the mis- hap occurred in Jackson County. Goodness, an employe of the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Mill, was the father of five children rang- ing in age from 2 to 13. His body was taken to Nekoosa. Goodness' death marked a new high in the county's traffic toll, doubling that of 1952 and one above the previous high of 11 in 19SO, the dozen highway deaths in t..e county this year, half have oc- s Hits Indictment by And 'Conviction by Accusation' ATLANTA Former Gov. Ad- lai Stevenson of Illinois, titular head of the Democratic party, to- day blasted the "Republican pro- gram" of ''indictment by suspi- cion, of conviction by accusation." "Gen. Eisenhower promised the people a new morality, but his lieutenants have chosen their weapons without regard for their effect." Stevenson declared. "They have taken McCarthyism away from McCarthy.

"No one wins this way.

Rosenberg Spy Ring Continuing, Greenglass Says NEW YOJIK Green- glass, confessed atom spy, testi- fied in writing today a radar spy ring headed by executed Julius Rosenberg "could very possibly be continuing to this very day."

Dulles Agrees Jap Disarming Mistake Senate Probers Ponder FBI Report on Spies WASHINGTON Senate inves- tigators today pondered FBI sum- maries of alleged Soviet espionage while, in an offshoot to the Harry Dexter White case, Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) prepared a radio-TV reply to former President Truman's blast at "McCarthyism." New fuel was added to the case, already smoking with political charges and countercharges, when: 1. A Canadian member of Par- }iament charged in the House of Commons yesterday that "McCar- thyites" in the United States are trying to "blackmail" Canada into releasing Igor Gouzenko for ques- tioning. 2. The Senate internal security subcommittee disclosed yesterday that the White House sought and got FBI data on Harold E. Glasser, an alleged Soviet spy, a month be- fore Glasser'.s 1946 promotion in the Treasury Department. The charge of 'blackmail came President and Family to Spend Holiday in Georgia By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON President Ei- senhower, starting a Thanksgiving holiday today, says no one can "assassinate your character from behind without suffering the pen- alties an outraged citizenry will impose." That was the code of the Old West where he grew up and it is a code Americans still cherish, the President declared last night in ac- cepting the B'nai B'brith Anti-De- famation League's annual Demo- cratic Legacy Award. Eisennower arranged to leave by plane today for Augusta, Ga., for a vacation of golf and a Thanks- giving Day turkey dinner with his family. He will return to Washington Sun- day. The Eisenhowers scheduled a stop en route at Ft. Benning, Ga., to pick up their daughter-in-law, Mrs. John Eisenhower, and their three grandchildren. Their son, an Army major stationed at Ft. Ben- ning. will join the family at the Augusta National Golf Club later in the week.

The onetime code clerk, who bolted the Russian Em- bassy at Ottawa in 1945 and ex- posed a Soviet spy ring in Canada, is living in Canada under police protection. Gouzenko reportedly has said he may have some advice.lhat would help the Senate investigation. But Pearson said Gouzenko had no in- formation that Canada had not al- ready given the United States. At the subcommittee's request, Atty. Gen. Brownell supplied it yesterday with a memorandum on who got FBI reports and sum- maries naming Glasser.

The people are confused, confidence in both parties undermined, the nation in- jured. "The issue isn't which party de- tests Communism most, bm how to deal with the serious problem of espionage in our government. And it won't be resolved to the nation's advantage by shouting matches and degrading circuses of political profit." Praises Truman Stevenson referred to former President Truman as the individ- ual "who has done more than any living man to check the forward thrust of and he rapped those whose "words imply disloyally." Applauding the "enormously im- proved" position of minority groups, particularly the Negro, he called progress in the South "even more conspicuous than that in the North."

He said that (o keep the prom- ises made by the Republican party in 1952 "would have been about as easy as for one Siamese twin to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge while the other kept the skillet hot for the fish fry." And he claimed that on two- thirds of the key issues in the last session, Democrats saved the Re- publican administration from the Republican Congress. "The attitude of many Republi- i can leaders seems to be 'I like Ike, but I don't like what Ike he remarked. Stevenson asserted that his par- ty "looks more united than it has for a long time."

"We lost an elec- tion in 1952, but we did not lose our vitality or sense of mission. And the sheep that strayed are daily coming back into the fold." Commenting on the agriculture situation, Stevenson said: "You know, after the brave speeches in last year's campaign I thought the Republicans Surely had a better farm policy. But they didn't. They didn't have anything but speeches. Now they have a study commission and we have promises of a new and better pro- gram. I hope it is, and if it is they can count on Democratic sup- port.
