Probe Starts
Senate Row,
Lodge Demands
Closed Hearings
WASHINGTON -(p)- A shout-
ing row broke out in the Senate
last night over Senator McCarthy's
chargesofrCommunism in the
State Department, and off the
Senate floor Senator Lodge (R-
Mass.) demanded closed hearings
on further testimony in the Owen
Lattimore case.
"I would like to take this show
off the road," Lodge said, alluding
.! to the airing of bitter charges and
counter charges at public hearings

the Lattimore case should be

However, the majority of the

behind closed doors.
Lattimore wound up two days of
testimony and cross-examination
on the witness stand before the
committee today, and was in-
structed to stand by for possible
further questioning.
On the Senate floor, vice presi-
dent Barkley ordered Democratic
Leader Lucas to sit down after
the Republican floor leader. Sena-
tor Wherry, angrily accused Lucas
of calling McCarthy "a liar."
Then the furore broke in ear-
nest.' One Senator after another
leaped into the battle over the
validity of McCarthy's charges,
and at one point Senator Neely
(D-W.Va) shouted:
"If McCarthy's charges are not
true, then those responsible for
making them ought to be scourged
from the society of decent men
and .women."

Opens Natural

Resources School
A School of Natural Resources, designed to carry on teaching
and research in all phases of man's natural environment, will be
established at the University in the fall.
First of its kind in the world, the new school will replace the
present School of Forestry and Conservation. Its activities will ex-
tend to the consideration of "everything which nature has placed on,
under and over the earth, in their relation to man," according to
President Ruthven.

Affiliates on
In an effort to determine atti-

life, the Interfraternity Council
has administered questionnaires
during the past few weeks to more
than 2000 affiliated men.
With most of the survey blanks
now turned in to Andrew Kapos,
Grad. who devised the poll, ques-
tions have been raised,both inside
and outside fraternity circles as to
the validity of the survey.
Kapos, a doctoral candidate in
social-psychology is working un-

ALTHOUGH a "Bill of Rights"

that their names be withheld said
they had been questioned about
Joseph Weinberg, a former lec-
turing physicist at the University
of California.
Weinberg was accused in a
formal report of the House Un-
American Activities Committee
in September, 1949 of having
disclosed atomic bomb secrets
to a Conmnunist spy. At that
time he was designated merely
as "Scientist X," but later he
was identified by the commit-
tee. He denied the charges..
Last October the Un-American
Activities Committee asked the
JusticeDepartment to ptosecute
Weinberg on perjury charges. It
accused him of falsely denying to
the committee under oath that he
was acquainted with two Commu-
nist Party functionaries, of lying
about his own membership in the
Party and about attending meet-
ings of the Young Communist
Weinberg, who had left the Uni-
versity of California campus at
Berkely to become a professor of
physics at the University of Minn-
esota, said it was a case of mis-
taken identity.
Cigarette Tax
Cut Approved
cents a pack slash in the federal
tax on "economy brand" cigar-
ettes-to bring back 12 cents a
pack smokes-was approved by the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee yesterday, on a narrow 13 to
12 vote.
This boosted the tentatively ap-
proved excise cuts above the bil-
lion-dollar mark,
The Treasury estimated that, if
the cigarette action finally be-
comes law, "economy" cigarettes
may capture about 25 per cent
of the cigarette market and smok-
ers may pay $90,000,000 less in
taxes a year.

THE TWO Republicans, not
slated for the special panel, are
veteran investigators. They had
solid GOP backing.
The tie vote, 35-35, came on
the question of substituting the
inquiry by a special committee
named by Barkley for the orig-
inal resolution by Senator Ke-
fauver (D-Tenn) for a study by
the judiciary committee. Don-
nell and Ferguson are on the
latter group.
Earlier, on a -strict party line
vote, 39-3i1Republicans lost in an
effort to permit them to pick their
own: members for the investigat-
ing committee.
THE compromise proposal for a
special committee was advanced
weeks ago by Democratic leader
Lucas (Ill) as a means to head off
a fight between the Judiciary and
Commerce Committees over which
should do the investigating. Each
had plans for such a study.
Action came somewhat un-
pectedly late in the day after it
had appeared for a time that
the long-delayed issue would be
passed over again.
Agreement had been reached to
sidetrack the current debate on
foreign aid briefly to get it out of
the way.
THE discussion, however, turn-
ed into a long quarrel with Demo-
crats and Republicans trading
charges of political stalling on the
subject of crime.
The Republicans have been
making suggestions that such
an inquiry, aimed in part at
any influence organized crime
has on local law enforcement,
might turn up ties between De-
mocratic big city machines and
the underworld. Democrats re-
plied that Republicans them-
selves were stalling in efforts to
turn the inquiry into a political
sounding board.
The row went on so long that
Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of
the Foreign Relations Committee
called the foreign aid measure
back before the House, apparent-
ly dooming the investigation for
the time. A new agreement was
reached for a vote, however, and
it came quickly.
