Ex-Senator Says
He Told Truth
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -. Sen. Joseph
R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) dropped his
two million dollar libel and slan-
der suit against former Sen. Wil-
liam Benton (D-Conn.) amid
clashing statements as to why the
action was abandoned.
Benton, who had accused Mc-
Carthy of perjury, fraud and de-
ceit, said the Wisconsin senator
"refuses to face examination un-
der courtroom conditions." He said
McCarthy never could have won
the suit "because I told the truth
about him and he knew it."
* * *.
McCARTHY said his lawyers
had advised him they were unable
to find anyone who believed Ben-
ton's charges. Under these circum-
stances he said, it would be im-
possible to prove he had been dam-
aged, and just to demonstrate that
Benton's charges were false would
"not be enough."
