VOL. LX, No. 143 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN SUNDAY, APRIL 30, 1950
WASHINGTON -- (P) -Gen.
- George C. Marshall declared last
night that Senator McCarthy's
charges of Communism-in-the-
Governnient "undermine and
weaken our position before the
world and actually lend assist-
ance to powers that would destroy
us"* * *
MARSHALL, former Secretary
of State,'joined at the same time
with two men who preceded him
in that post - Cordell Hull and
James F. Byrnes - and with the
present Secretary of State, Dean
Acheson, in sharply denying Mc-
Carthy's assertion that Owen Lat-
timore is "the principal architect
of our Far Eastern policy." Mc-
Carthy contends that policy be-
trayed China to Russia.
Their statements formed one of
two major developments today in
connection with a Senate Foreign
Relations Subcommittee's inquiry
into McCarthy's accusations.
In the other action, Chairman
Tydings (D-Md) of the investi-
gating group ordered contempt
citations prepared against two
witnesses who refused to answer
a series of questions. The com-
mittee will decide later whether
to seek formal court action.
The witnesses were Earl Browd-
er, former Communist Party lead-
er, who objected that he was be-
ing subjected to a "fishing ex-
pedition," and wealthy Frederick
Vanderbilt Field, who wouldn't
say whether he is a Communist,
and turned aside many other
questions, generally on grounds of
possible self incrimination.
MEANWHILE in Des Moines,
Ia., Henry Wallace put forward
a 30-billion-dollar-a-year plan to
end the cold war. He said Presi-
dent Truman and Stalin should
confer to get it going.
The former Vice President
said his plan - which calls
for "a new and more powerful
World Bank" - should be linked
with close U.S.-Russian coop-
eration in the United Nations.
Unless some such action is
taken, Wallace said, the alterna-
tive is a global economic smashup
in 1952 and the probable rise
somewhere of "a greater Hitler."
HE CALLED on this country
to give $10 billion a year to a
"World Bank" which he wants the
UN to sponsor.
Wallace's remarks were pre-
and China would be borrowing
from the Bank in a big way."
Walace's remarks were pre-
pared for delivery at a closed ses-
sion of the Prairie Club, a group
of prominent Des Moines men who
meet monthly to discuss current
The 1948 Progressive Party can-
lidate for president said the
world's hope lies in cooperation by
the U.S., Britain, Russia and Chi-
na within the UN framework.

Red May Day
Ready To Enter
By The Associated Press
Nearly 8,000 American, French
and British troops are on guard
in the Allied Sectors of Berlin as
protective forces are being geared
to shooting war alertness for the
critical May Day celebration.
Three thousand other troops,
stationed in West Germany, are
under orders to be ready to fly
to this divided city in the Soviet
Zone if the need arises. They could
make the trip in two hours.

monies on National Defense

It is no secret, however, that
this flying will include patrols of

West Berlin and the Soviet Zone

more than 70 miles.

NO STARS 'COMPARABLE TO PAST':
Drama Collection Holds Key
By NANCY BYLAN
A large autograph-photograph collection of famous stars brings £
many colorful memories of Ann Arbor's golden days of drama to
James Murnan, treasurer of the box office for the Drama Festival.
Murnan started his collection in 1917, when, as a stage-struck
youth, he received an autograph album from Otis Skinner, who had
penned his name across the fly leaf.
AT THAT TIME, Murnan's father was in the hotel and theatrer
business and was one of the owners of the only legitimate theatre
in Ann Arbor.'
In those days there were no "second companies," and original
Broadway stars made the road tours, Murnan explained. Ann
Arbor drew all the big names, and they all stayed at the senior,

Mrs. Henderson knew of Murnan's interest in the theatre %n
asked him to work as treasurer for the Drama Festival box office,
a position he's held ever since.
His collection includes pictures and signatures of many of the
stars that graced the Drama Festival programs - Jane Cowl, Leon
Ames, Conrad Nagel, Betty Furness, Nazimova, Gladys Cooper, Phillip
Merivale, Estelle Winwood, Ruth Gordon, Ilka Chase, and Diana
