Vith Perjury in Ouster Row (Mf
WASHINGTON - P) - Sena-
or William Benton (D-Conn.)
esterday challenged the fitness
f Senator McCarthy (R-Wis.) to
it in the Senate.
In a 25,000-word blast~Benton
ccused McCarthy of perjury,

Testifying under oath before a
ate yesterday passed a bill to raise
personal and corporate income
taxes and excess levies by $5,450,-
000,000 a year-little more than
half of President Truman's re-
Passage was by a roll call vote,
The measure now goes back to
the House, which voted to in-
crease taxes by $7,200,000,000. A
conference to compromise the dif-
ferences is expected to begin by
the middle of next week.
The bill carries the third big
tax boost voted by Congress since
the start of the Korean war.
The final version is expected
to reach President Truman in
about two weeks. But it will
carry far less than the $10,000,-
000,000 of new revenue he said
was needed to balance the bud-
get and fight inflation,
In a climatic vote earlier in the
day; the Senate rejected a plan
to increase personal income taxes
$2,500,000,000 by eliminating the
benefits of income splitting be-
tween2married couples. The vote
was 62 to 14.
Senator Humphrey (D-Minn.)
offered this proposal as a sub-
stitute for the Finance Commit-
tee's plan to get $2,394,000,000 in
new revenue through an 11 per
cent increase on most individuals,
(The house bill provides a 12 1/2
per cent boost in all personal in-
This wasbthe last major amend-
ment to be introduced by a 15-
man bloc which attempted to
boost the increases nearer the
$10,000,000,000 t h a t President
Truman said was necessary to
balance the budget.
4 Earlier, the Senate defeated an-
other of the bloc's amendments.
It called for a 28 per cent rate on
the capital gains tax, instead of
25 per cent, provided by law now
and continued in the committee
tbill. The vote was 53 to 26
against theproposal. Senator
Douglas (D-Ill.), the sponsor, said
It would have added $90,000,000

Benton called for his ouster or at
least a vote of censure.
The Wisconsin Senator left
Washington Thursday to fill a
speaking engagement in New
Mexico. McCarthy, who has re-
peatedly accused Benton of try-
ing to shield what he calls "the
crimson clique in the State De-
partment," told reporters at
"As I said before, I would not
take the time to answer Connecti-

ON CAPITOL Hill, less than a
dozen spectators were present at
the Senate hearing, which had
been billed originally as a closed
session, as Benton read through
his bulky 59-page statement. At
the last minute, Chairman Gil-
lette (D-Iowa) threw open the
doors to the public. Television,
radio and movie cameras were
Noting that 18 U. S. Senators
have been expelled in the past,
Benton told the committee its
task was to decide whether
McCarthy "has committed per-
jury and whether he has prac-
ticed calculated deceit on both
the U. S. Senate and the Amer-
"If the committee decides that
Senator McCarthy has committed
perjury," Benton said, "I assume
it will bring the facts to the at-
tention of the proper authorities
for prosecution in the courts."
BENTON, A slight, sandy-haired
man, told the committee his own
personal conviction is that Mc-
Carthy should be expelled "as the

that some Senators were "gun-
shy" about taking such a step,

"More logs, more logs, don't let
the cook-fires die!"
For ten days cries for fuel,
mingled with the .smell of wood
smoke issued forth from 1017 Oak-
BEHIND THIS pungent smell is
the story of thirty co-eds of Owen
House Co-op, who returned to
campus this fall and found them-
selves without the use of their
stove, refrigerator, or .sink, as all
kitchen attachments had been
disconnected in preparation for
laying new linoleum. But because
inquiry group called yesterday for
the bank accounts of Democratic
National Chairman William M.
Boyle, Jr., and demanded full ac-
cess to his income tax returns for
1949 and 1950.
The surprise moves came after
Senators heard the testimony of
Theodore Link, a reporter for the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who re-
iterated the newspaper's charges
that Boyle received $8,000 in fees
from the American Lithofold
Corp. after the St. Louis printing
firm got $565,000 in RFC loans.
Link was supposed to be the fin-
al witness in the inquiry conducted
by the Senate's Investigations
Subcommittee._ But he furnished
the group with so many new leads
that it was decided to extend the
As the Lithofold investigationk
came to life again, the RFC fired
James O. Hoover, a Washington
loan examiner, and suspended Ed-
win R. Willard, a $9,200 a year

Disinclined to boost local res-
taurant profits as long as there
was a supply of food in the
house and more being delivered
daily by the Inter-Cooperative
Council, the women fared it out
with cold-stuffs for the first
"The sarcastic refrain, 'And how
will you have your peanut butter
sandwich prepared tonight' soon
grew unbearable though," e x -
plained Ann Aldrich, '54, "So we
called a meeting and decided we!
must have a hot meal."
* * *
"THE RESULT being that weI
lit the fireplace and cooked our!
meals 'mongst the ashen coals.
Hotdogs and popcorn were on the
ear'ly menus, but we soon gradu-
ated to macaroni and cheese," con-
tinued Jeanie Lussow, '54, as she
thumbed through a yellowing copy
of Favorite Indian recipes for
Hickory Smoked Hamburgers.
Eventually all the the kind-
ling wood, old furniture and low-
er limbs of surrounding trees
were used and the only alterna-
tive left was to cook at one of
the other co-ops.
"What a task that was!" inter-
jected Shelley Estin, '53, telling her
story, "I was the cook and we car-
ried two huge pots and the mak-
ings for chili ten blocks to Stevens
House, and we had to have a
truck to bring us and the chili
back. Itwas an open truck, so as
we turned each corner the chili
slopped out and we left an aroma-
tic trail which permeated through-
out the campus."
After 10 days of roughing it, the
promised new linoleum was finally
put in yesterday, and convention
reigns again at Owen House.
