Shaffer and Myron Sharpe, a
second graduate student in eco-
nomics and local Chairman of
the Labor Youth League said
last week they had been subpo-
eaned to appear before Clardy's
group in Lansing May 10.
Clardy also maintained that,
Miss Price had given no informa-
tion to his subcommittee that he
was aware of. The FBI bureau inj
Detroit also refused to confirm or'
deny that she had provided any
information.
Retorting to Clardy's charge of
a "publicity stunt" Shaffer late
yesterday challenged the Congress-.
man to "waive his Congressional
immunity and make this statement
under oath, as Miss Price did."
SHAFFER was referring to a:
signed affidavit dated April 1 in,
which Miss Price said she had
worked for the FBI reporting on
the graduate student's activities
as well as that of others on cam-
pus.
Shaffer released a prepared
statement which claimed that

On Radio, TV
Hensel Accused
Of 'Discrediting'
WASHINGTON-W)-The long-
heralded public showdown in the
roaring fight between Senator Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis.) and Pentagon of-
ficials opens today under the glare
of the television lights and world-
wide publicity.
NBC, CBS, Dumont will telecast
the proceedings starting around 10
a.m. Radio networks will air both
"live" and recorded excerpts.
McCARTHY IS due to fly back-
from Houston, Tex., in time to
confront his principal adversary.
Secretary of the Army Robert T.
Stevens, by the time Acting Chair-
man Karl E. Mundt (R-S.D.) of
the Senate Investigations subcom-
mittee, bangs the starting gavel.
Mundt said yesterday all the
subcommittee expects to do is
"try to find out the truth and
make it available to the public."
Ray H. Jenkins, the Knoxville
lawyer engaged as a special coun-
sel for the inquiry, said "the facts
will be presented fully, fairly and
fearlessly."
THE SUBCOMMITTEE will try
to answer two questions:
1. Did McCarthy and aids Roy
M Cohn and Francis Carr try-
as Army officials contend-"by im-
proper means" to get special treat-
ment for Pvt. G. David Schine, a
subcommittee consultant who was'
drafted last November?
2. Did Stevens, Army Counsel
John Adams and others resort-
as the McCarthy forces allege-to
dishonest tactics, even "black-
mail," to block an investigation of
alleged "protecting" of Commu-
nists infiltrating the Army's
ranks?
Almost on the eve of the publie
hearings, McCarthy dropped a
new charge into the hopper-
that Assistant, Secretary of De-
fense H. Struve Hensel master-
minded a move to "discredit"
the Senate investigators and
block a probe of "serious'
charges" against himself.
The subcommittee yesterday
named Hensel as "principal in its
Iprobe and requested that he ans-
wer McCarthy's charges formally.
Hensel called the accusations
"bare-faced lies." Yesterday, his
boss, Secretary of Defense Charles-
E. Wilson, gave him a vote of con-
fidence.
FOR THE public hearings many
foreigners as well as hundreds of
American reporters and photog-
rophers reserved places in front of
the senator's high bench and sur-
rounding the witness table of the
caucus room.
Replacing McCarthy on the
subcommittee, temporarily will
be Sen. Henry C. Dwbrshak (R-
Idaho).
McCarthy didn't, however, give
up his right to cross-examine wit-
nesses. So this same privilege will
be extended to Stevens and other,
principles.
