By ExpertsI
Three University professors yes-
terday lambasted the proposed

stitution concerning the Presi-
dent's powers to enact treaties and
agreements with foreign countries.
Sponsored by the University
chapter of the Atlantic Union
Committee, the faculty discussion
centered around three of the four
sections of the amendment.
PROF. WILLIAM W. Bishop of
the law school hit section two of
the proposal forbidding any treaty
to "authorize oy permit any for-
eign power or any international
organization to supervise, control
or adjudicate rights of citizens of
the United States within the Unit-
ed States or any matter essentially
within the domestic jurisdiction of
the United States."j

IN LONDON, Attlee, who
aroused McCartny's anger by his
speech in the House of Commons
on Tuesday, said yesterday:
"I do not think that anyone
in this country judges America
by Sen. McCarthy."
The former Prime Minister,
leader of the British Labor party,
frostily denied McCarthy's asser-
tion he had made a "cheap at-
tack" on the United States.

"I THINK that anyone who
reads my whole speech will ac-

American but fully recognized the

And the British leader told
"The British Labor party and
I myself have been vigorously
opposing the Communist party
in this country since its founda-
tion-long before Sen. McCar-
thy was ever heard of."
On the Senate floor, McCarthy
centered his main attack on Att-
lee's assertion that some elements
in the United States do not want
peace in Korea but would rather
wage an all-out war against Red
China and communism generally.
The senator said if the British
want to withdraw from Korea,
they should get out, and he cried:
