Because the French leadership is now excel- lent, one can hope for good re- sults from this winter's fighting. Yet whatever is done this winter, will be done on a shoestring.

Halpin, 58, chief deputy warden at the Minnesota State Reforma- tory, ended his life in his reforma- tory office at a.m. today. j Officers at the reformatory heard a shot in Halpin's office j soon after he arrived for work and j found him dead. Reformatory Superintendent Carl! Jackson said the coroner ruled the death a suicide. Jackson said Halpin had written notes to his wife and to him, say- ing he was "a very sick man." The superintendent said Halpin had undergone surgery a year ago and seemingly had recovered. Hal- pin had planned to retire next July 1. Jackson said today that "Mr. Halpin was a very faithful and capable deputy. His many years of service here made him an ex- tremely valuable officer. He was liked and respected by his fellow officers and inmates." Halpin began working at the reformatory as a guard in 1915 and became chief deputy warden Sen. Joseph McCarthy, speaking over the combined facilities of the major radio networks, charged in New York Tuesday that former President Truman's administration was "crawling with Communists" and that the former president is a "defeated and discredited politician" who put political party above country, "regardless of how much the country is damaged thereby."

Several pieces of feminine underclothing, slashed as if with a knife and stained, were found Tuesday in woods near Superior. Douglas County Sheriff Anthony Jendusa said today he had informed authorities at La Crosse of the possibility the gar- ments might be those of Evelyn Hartley, 15-year-old La Crosse girl who vanished Oct. 24. Jendusa said the underclothing, found by a Superior hunter in brush near an outdoor theater on the outskirts of the city, consisted of a slip, panties, brassiere, bra inserts and stockings.

He said the Eisenhower administration is not responsible for the situation, but is responsible for its proper handling. McCarthy, declaring his fight against Communism in government to be an issue in the 1954 election campaign, said: "The raw, harsh, unpleasant fact is that Communism is an issue and will be an issue in 1954. "It would not be an issue be- tween our two great political par- ties if they were united in fighting Communism. They are not so united today. Truman's diatribe against those who expose Commu- nists is the best proof of that." Looking to the 1954 Senate and House elections, McCarthy said: "If the American people agree with Truman that what he calls 'McCarthyism' is bad, that it is wrong to dig out and expose trait- ors, they have a chance to get rid of me as chairman of the investi- gating committee next fall by de- (Continued on Pape 3, Column 4) MCCARTHY ;
