McCarthy,
Pearson Fire
New Charges
Brownell Hears
Claims Of Both
WASHINGTON -(P~Sen. Jo-
> seph McCarthy (R-Wis.) and col-
umnist Drew Pearson fired new
barrages in their running feud
yesterday in a free-swinging mix-
up centering on charges and coun-
ter charges of Espionage Act vio-
lations.
These were the developments:
* * *
McCARTHY called on - Atty.
Gen. Brownell to check up at once
on what he called an espionage
case involving a representative of
Pearson.
Pearson retorted by inviting
the JTistice Department to let a
grand jury decide whether he or
McCarthy had, violated the Es-
pionage Act. Pearson said he
would be delighted to have the
entire matter investigated by
anyone who is "competent and
sane."
McCarthy triggered the fire-
works at a hearing before a Sen-
ate Appropriations subcommittee
on Monday when he raised the
issue of an alleged espionage case
involving one of Pearson's aides.
* * *
BROWNELL agreed to check in
what McCarthy called a "pigeon-
holed" case of alleged espionage
and said he would advise McCar-
thy on what he found.
McCarthy renewed his attack
on the subject at yesterday's
session of the subcommittee
when he -read a letter from
Brownell saying the case is still
"under active investigation" and
that consequently, because of a
long-standing policy, he could
not disclose any details about it.
Pearson, informed of McCarthy's
inquiry, issued a statement say-
ing:
"Apparently Sen. McCarthy has
heard of my forthcoming televi-
sion program devoted exclusively
" to him and is applying his usual
diversionary tactics. He. has re-
peated an old charge he made
last summer but was never able
to substantiate."
Pearson contended, among other
things, that McCarthy had made
public government documents
which should have been kept
secret,
Brownell said that despite the
fact the case had been marked
closed by the Truman administra-
tion, he had reopened an investi-
gation into "one aspect of the
matter."
Commenting on Brownell's let-
ter, McCarthy 'said there was a
confusion because two men named
Murray were involved and he was
sending the whole matter back to
Brownell for further review.

SL Sets Up Nine-Man Committee

By BECKY CONRAD
After nearly three months of committee work on the problem of
discriminatory practices in Ann Arbor, Student Legislature last night
voted to set up a nine-member committee on "business discriminationr
against University students."
Five student members appointed by the SL Cabinet and approved
by the Legislature, an Ann Arbor Civic Forum representative, two
campus businessmen, and one representative of the administration
would hold seats on the group.

Fraternity stewards last night
heard Manager of Service Enter-
prises Francis C. Shiel outline five
steps in intelligent food purchas-
ing and make several suggestions
toward improving kitchen opera-
tions in campus houses.
Sonny Goldstein, '56, steward of
Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity ex-
plained a proposal calling for es-
tablishment of a central price list-
ing office for fraternities which
would tabulate food and commod-
ity prices locally and in Detroit to
enable stewards to find where the
best deals can be made.
ACCORDING TO Goldstein the
proposed service, once organized3
and manned by a staff of fra-
ternity stewards, could also serve
as a central buying agency for
houses, placing orders for frater-
nities as they are called in.
Goldstein pointed out that
participation in the proposed
price listing and buying plan}
would be on a purely voluntary
basis and would be designed to
Imaximise the bargaining pvower
in quantity purchasing.
At present houses operate inde-
pendently in purchases of food andz
other commodities. The food buy-
ing proposal is scheduled to be"
discussed in fraternity district
meetings next week.
Shiel said the plan looks like al
workable one which would be
particularly effective in the pur-
chase of meats., ,
POINTING out ways In which
stewards can improve operating
efficiency of their board tables,
Shiel stressed the importance of
carefully checking and weighing
each item on an order before put-
ting it in stock.l
Discussing the problem of in-t
come tax on board paymlent to
student kitchen help, Shiel saidl
he has heard that the Internalj
Revenue department in Ann Ar-
bor plans in the near future to
look into whether houses and
students are reporting this in-l
come.

The titian-haired actress re-
gards her role as that of a story-
teller-"a lost art in America,
but like the old Greek idea such
as Plato's rhapsos," she elabor-
ated.
"It's an entirely new medium for
me. A kind of colossal task-like a
poduction." Smiling, she admit-
ted, "It's rather scary."
As the production is devoid of
props or scenery. Miss Moorehead
explained that she uses books and
a bench "for eye relief."
TERMING acting "a hazardous
profession," the star said the only
way for young actors to learn is
to get lots of experience.
"You might haie all the talent
and 'never get to show fIt," she
commented. A national theater
in every state might alleviate
this situation, she added.
The actress decried the star sys-
tem in America as "treacherous."
It allows for young people to be-
come stars overnight, but they can
disappear almost as quickly. "Let
them win their spurs first," she
cautioned.
Commenting on television,
Miss Moorehead shrugged, "It's
a medium of advertising. The
great percentage of shows are
mediocre, . the best things are
news and sports programs."
"There's not enough tiue to
make a show great. You can't
make a great piece on an assembly
line," she declared.

away were showered with nuclear
ashes and burned. American tech-
nicians and Marshall Islanders 100
miles from the flashpoint also felt
the effects of radiation to a milder
degree.
There have been estimates
that the explosive power releas-
ed in the test was between 600
and 700 times greater than that
of the atomic bomb which killed
60,000 persons in Hiroshima, Ja-
pan, near the end of World
War II.
A reporter remarked to the
President that in Japan and else-
where in the Far East some anti-
American newspapers were mak-
ing anti-American propaganda
out of ,cases of radioactive poison-
ing reported to have been suffered
by people far from the blast scene.
The President replied that he
knew nothing about the details,
but he has been told that the re-
ports were far more serious than
the actual results justified. This
was taken to mean that, according
to the President's information, the
reports of injury were exaggerated.
REFERRING to the McCarthy
incident, the President did say,
and the White House permitted
him to be quoted directly:
"I am perfectly ready to put
myself on record flatly, as I
have before, that in America, if a
man is a party to a dispute, dir-
ectly or indirectly, he does not
sit in judgment on his own case,
and I don't believe that any
leadership can escape responsi-
bility for carrying on that tra-
dition and that practice."
The President's meaning, as it
might relate to the immediate
point in the McCarthy controver-
sy, was not 100 per cent clear.
McCarthy, in the other hand,
said he and Eisenhower "agree
with each other completely,"
