Ie Army, McCarthy, Adlai

in Four-Way

Battle

Nixon Gives

Reply Today
Intra-Party Flare-ups
Explode During Week
The furious battle currently
raging from Washington to New
York and back started innocently
enough, in Florida when former
Democratic candidate for the
presidency, Adlai Stevenson charg-
ed that the GOP is "half McCar-
thy and half Eisenhower."
Stevenson claimed the Republi-
can Party was using McCarthyism
as a "formula for political suc-
cess"
REPERCUSSONS were felt Mar.
8 when GOP chairman Leonard W.
Hall announced that the Republi-
can National Committee had re-
quested air and video time from
the major national networks to
answer Stevenson's accusations
Vice-President N i x o n was
handed the job of presenting
the official Republican answer
to the Democratic Party. How-
ever, Sen. McCarthy while
praising the choice of Nixon as
"excellent" demanded of the
networks free air time to -retort
to what he termed. Stevenson's
personal attack upon him.
However, the networks denied
this and McCarthy countered tht
"they (the networks) will grant
me time or learn what the law is.
I will guarantee that."
Party leaders differed and Hall
maintained "this is not a mat-
ter for personal rebuttal by any
individual." McCarthy then, be-
gan shopping around for air time
as the Republican Executive Com-
mittee announced that Nixon
would speak today at 10:30 p.m.
IN THE MEANTIME, on March
9, the strongest attack from with-
in the Republican Party against
the Wisconsin Senator came in a
*speech from the Senate floor by
Sen. Ralph E. Flanders (R-Vt.)
Flanders said Sen. McCarthy
was doing his best to "shatter
the Republican Party" and di-
vert the nation frop world dan-.
ger by stirring up "dust" and
"racket."
President Eisenhower credited
Flanders with "performing a serv-
ice" by emphasizing the "great
danger" of "personal aggrandize-
ment" and a split Republican Par-
ty.
Ser. McCarthy found radio time
Thursday in a question and answer
interview with commentator Ful-
ton Lewis, Jr. On the broadcast,
the Senator accused Stevenson of
dealing in untruths and also lash-
ed back at commentator Edward
R. Murrow, who devoted a 30-min-
ute broadcast Tuesday to a round-
up of the Senator's investigating
activities. Murrow charged that he
repeatedly stepped over the line
between "investigating and perse-
cution."
In addition, Sen. McCarthy ac-
cused Murrow of being connected
with a Moscow school tabbed as
revolutionary. The commentator
answered yesterday that he had
been an adviser to an internation-
al education experiment which
the Russians cancelled in 1953 be-
fore the school started.

'Unlimited Cuts' Granted
To Upperclassmen at NYU

Adopting a plan similar to that
recently instituted at the Univer-
sity of Detroit, the College of Arts
and Science at New York Univer-
sity has announced that senior
honor students are now allowed
unlimited class cuts.
The faculty has voted to allow
seniors on the dean's list to skip
classes without penalty, NYU
spokesmen have revealed.
* * *
ALTHOUGH honor students -
those having an average of 85 per
cent or better-will still be re-
quired to take exams, write papers
and fulfill other obligations, "they
will attend classes, both labora-
tories and lectures, at their own
discretion."
Termed "an incentive to scho-
larship in the true sense of the
liberal arts," the new plan, it

ROBERT T. STEVENS still
smarting over his recent run-in
with the Wisconsin Senator
during the Zwicker affair broke
a short silence yesterday when
he denied charges stemming
from McCarthy that he had pro-
mised to smear the other armed
services departments if the Sen-
ator would soft-pedal his inves-
tigations into alleged Commun-
ist activity within the Army.

SENATOR McCARTHY, at the
very center of the hot Cohn-
Schine controversy, cried "black-
mail" yesterday against an Army
report charging he and his chief
counsel, Roy Cohn, applied pres-
sure for special treatment of° the
former McCarthy aide. The Wis-
consin Senator reported he was
making public documents which
would throw a new light on the
whole affair.

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER re-
mained behind the scenes for the
better part of the week but was
reported to have hand-picked
Nixon, to answer Democratic
charges of disunity within his
party. At a press conference,
however, Eisenhower deplored
tactics being used by certain per-
sons in government and for the
most part backed an attack lev-
elled by Sen. Flanders (R.-Vt.)

VICE-PRESIDENT RICHARD
M. NIXON is the man who will
tonight answer Democratic chief
Adlai Stevenson's charges that
the Republican Party is being
split wide open over the issue of
McCarthyism. It has been re-
ported that President Eisenhow-
er hand-picked Nixon to answer
Stevenson, purposely by-passing
the Wisconsin Senator.

ADLAI STEVENSON the former
Democratic candidate for presi-
dent, started the ball rolling
earlier in the week when he char-
ged the current Administration
was split in two between the Eis-
enhower and the McCarthy fac-
tions. Since then the ex-Gover-
nor of Illinois has remained si-
lent apparently awaiting an offi-
cial Republican Party reply

is claimed by members of the
NYU faculty, will allow superior
students to further advance
themselves by i n d e p e n d e n t
study.
At the University of Detroit, a
new program inaugurated to "en-
courage the excellent student,"
has exempted 11 students from
regular instruction. The NYU plan
exempts 77 students, or approxi-
mately one-quarter of the senior
class.
An editorial in the Heights
Daily News, student newspaper,
noted that, "Students are here by
choice, they pay to be here, they
are here to learn. Clearly the stu-
dent is the only loser if his cuts
are not regulated in accordance
with his capability."

Army Center of McCarthy, Stevens Battle;
Charges Leveled over 'Privileges' for Private Schine

. Stevens and McCarthy
First shots in the "war of Mc-
Carthy versus the Army" were
fired at Fort Monmouth, N. J. last
December when the volatile Sen-
ator from Wisconsin charged there
had been substantial infiltration
by Communists at Fort Monmouth
during World, War II.
Following a series of tangles
with the Army over much-decorat-
ed Brigadier General Ralph W.
Zwicker and Maj. Irving Peress,
investigator McCarthy warmed up
to his present tilt with'Army Sec-
retary Robert Stevens.
THE FIRST encounter occurred
when Stevens told officers at Val-
ley FoIrge, Pa., during a Washing-
ton's birthday celebration, "I in-
tend to support the loyal mn and
women of our Army."
Phases of the war:
1) Feb. 18-McCarthy calls
Gen. Zwicker to the stand and
lashes out at him as unfit to
wear the uniform in a private
hearing later made public by the
Army.
2) Two days later Stevens tells
two officers asked to appear be-
fore the McCarthy committee not
to appear and says he will testify
himself as a volunteer witness
Thursday (Feb. 25).
3) Feb. 23-McCarthy charged
that an Army code clerk, in the
pay of the Communist Party dur-
ing the '40's is now handling "top
secret" messages in the Pentagon.
4) Feb. 25-The showdown meet-
ing between Stevens and McCar-
thy is called off and the Army
Secretary bows to demands by the
Wisconsin Senator in the latter's
investigation of alleged Army
"Communist coddling."
5) March 6-Rumors that the
54-year-old Army' Secretary is
about to resign over the McCar-
thy feud are quashed by Stevens.
6) March 12--The Senator and
Stevens renew the conflict with
divergent charges in the case of
forymer McCarthy subcommittee
staffman G. David Schine allegedly
getting special treatment in the
Army due to pressure from his
former boss.
* * *
Peress and Zwicker
A secret hearing concerning pro-
motion and honorable discharge
of Maj. Peress, called a "Commu-
nist Party leader" by the Wiscon-
sin Senator, touched off the whole
McCarthy-Stevens controversy.
Early in February, Sen. McCar-
thy claimed Army officials were in-
formed last April that Peress was
a Communist, but went on to pro-
mote and later discharge the Army
dentist after he appeared before

the Senate Investigating Subcom-
mittee and refused to answer ques-
tions about Communist activities
on constitutional grounds. .
*. * *
TRANSCRIPT of a later hear-*
ing showed the Senator told Gen.
Zwicker of Camp Kilmer, N. J.,
where the dentist obtained his dis-
charge, that. "I cannot help but
questioneeither your honesty or in-
telligence."
It was disclosed after the sec-
ond session that the New York
dentist was granted a speeded-
up discharge at -his own request
after appearing before Sen. Mc-
Carthy, who sat as a one-man
subcommittee. Gen. Zwicker said
the discharge was ordered by
higher authorities whom he did
not identify.
Sen. McCarthy claimed Gen.
Zwicker, questioned about the "un-
cooperative" Peress, testified the
dentist's "Communist record" was
fully known to the Army.
Gen. Zwicker said after his sec-
ond hearing that Sen. McCarthy
had "slanted" his account of what
transpired in the closed session.
When Gen. Zwicker reported to
his Washington superiors that Sen.
McCarthy had insulted him. Sec-
retary of the Army Stevens moved
in and accused the Senator of un-
dermining military morale with
"unfair attacks" on Army officers.
* * *
Cohn and Schine
Sen. McCarthy cried "blackmail"
yesterday at an Army report which
claimed he and his chief counsel,
Roy Cohn, had pressured the Army
for special privileges in behalf of
Pvt. G. David Schine, a former Mc-
Carthy sub-committee consultant.
Included in the 34-page docu-
ment were many references to
Cohn's threats that Army Secre-
tary Stevens would be "through"
and the Army "wrecked" if Schine
were sent over-seas after he com-
pleted his basic training.
ALSO IN the report were state-
ments that Sen. McCarthy and
Cohn had attempted to secure a
direct commission for Schine be-
fore the investigator was drafted.
Frosh Weekend
Tryouts for Blue Team floor-
show of Frosh Weekend will be
held from 9 a.m. to noon today
in the League. All freshmen
women interested in being in
the show, April 16-17, are re-
quested to attend the tryout
meeting.

Later Schine was rejected as Cohn and Schine first gained
unqualified by the chief of trans- controversial news prominence last
portation, the provost marshal spring when Sen. McCarthy sent
general and the commanding them to Europe for an investiga-
general of the First Army. tion of United States information
. and propaganda agencies abroad.
Sen. McCarthy was pictured as:!
playing a dual role with regard to Because of the methods used by
h the two youthful committee con-
sultants in conducting the inves-
quoted as telling officials repeat- tigation Sen. Mike Monroney (D-
edly to treat Schine as it would Okla.) said they acted like "Key-I
any other private, and also as try- stone Kops" during a vociferous
ig to.have the Army assign Schine Senate debate with Sen. McCarthyI
to the New York area and suggest- over whether they had hurt Amer-I
ed that Schine be assigned to check ican prestige abroad with what;
West Point textbooks for subver- Sen. Monroney called "their an-
sive material. tics."
