WASHINGTON- (P)--Secretary
of the Army Robert T. Stevens
gave the lie to Sen. Joseph Mc-
Carthy Thursday as the McCar-
thy-Pentagon row flared up into
stormy hearings before a nation-
wide television audience.
The Army secretary first accus-
ed McCarthy and his chief aides
of waging* a "persistent, tireless'?
campaign-the most strenuous one
in his official experience-to get
special treatment for Pvt. G, Da-
vid Schine.

THEN STEVENS labeled as "ab-
solutely false" McCarthy's charge
that Stevens urged,'him to "go af-
ter" the Navy and Air Force in-
stead of looking for Communists in
the Army's ranks.
"I never made any such state-
ment," Stevens declared. And
he denied, too, McCarthy's
charge that he tried to use the
Schine case as "blackmail."
And so ended, in the kind of di-
rect conflict that can lead to per-
jury charges against somebody,
