T-H Revision
Plan Debate
Democrats Ask
Union Bias End
By The Associated Press
Sen. Lehman (D-Lib-N.Y.) pois-
ed the threat or a possible filibus-
ter by Southern members yester-
day at the outset of Senate debate
on proposed revision of the Taft-
'Hartley Labor Law.
An amendment by Lehman,
held in the offing for possible later
use, would make it an unfair labor
practice for either a union or an
employer to discriminate against
any employe "because of race,
Y creed, color, national origin or an-
cestry.,,

Dirksen Talks of Holding Testimon y

Hearings

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R-Ill.) said yester-
day "serious consideration" is being given to limiting further testi-
mony in the McCarthy-Pentagon hearings to Secretary of the Army
Robert T. Stevens and Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.)
Dirksen said he sponsored a motion adopted at a closed meeting
of the Senate investigating committee to have counsel fol- all inter-
ested parties canvass methods of speeding up the hearings.
ONE OF THE proposals to be studied, the Illinois senator said,
was suggested by Joseph N. Welch, counsel to the Army side in the dis-
putes. This calls for paring the testimony to the two chief contestants.
Yesterday's speed-it-up meeting was held after John G.
Adams, Army counsel, took the stand briefly for the first time
and sharply debated with Mc-
Carthy the meaning of a press

Lehman should call up his
t amendment, Southern opposi-
tion could lead to unlimited de-
bate which could bog down and
perhaps knock out any change
for Taft-Hartley revision this
year.
Another amendment likely to
produce searching debate is one on
"states' rights" sponsored by Sen.
Goldwater (R-Ariz.) .
It was unclear from floor discus-
sion of Goldwater's amendment
and from a subsequent interview
with the Arizona senator just how
far states would be permitted to
go under his proposal.

(EDITO NO rhis is the first

chairman of a subcommittee of the
Hiouse Un-American Activities Com-
mittee.)
By JIM DYGERT
A curious duo of adjectives, per-
sonable and fiery, sums up the im-
pressions one gets after talkingJ
to the key figure in the highly con-i
troversial Detroit hearings, Rep.
Kit Cardy.
As chairman of the House un-
American activities subcommittee,
the Lansing Republican takes his$
job seriously. But that doesn't pre-
vent him from enjoying a chuckle
over some of the ruckus his inves-
tigations have touched off.
HIS JOB, as he sees it, is to ex-,
pose Communism as the menace it!
is, "wherever we can." The fact
that some Communists are in ed-
Sucation, the clergy, labor unions,
or government is of secondary im-
portance. "The main thing is that.
they are Communists and must be
exposed," he insists.
"Why, even my own profes-}
sion is infiltrated," he says with .
disappointment, "Look at the5
Lawyers' Guild." But he dismiss-
es it with a shrug and a smile,
as if there were plenty of time
to investigate the lawyers.
The whole problem of Commu-!
nism is the most crucial faced by,
the United States today, he thinks.
And the way to solve it is to make!
the public aware of the danger,
which his and other investigation'
committees are doing.
"The investigating committees
have two main functions. And1
they are co-equal in importance,"
he explains, running a hand
through his thick grey hair. "We
are interested in getting informa-
tion so that Congress can legislate
properly against Communism, and'
in making the public aware of the
danger."

the effect would be to eliminate as

side.

It was evident, however, that

tion. A further closed meeting was
called for 8 a.m. today for a pro-
gress report on the search for a
speedup.

SPECIAL Counsel Ray H. Jen-

"It could be," Jenkins said.

Edward Shaffer, Grad., has re-
tained the services of Loren W.
Campbell to act as his attorney if
he is called to testify before the
sub-committee of the House Un-
American Activities Committee
May 10 in Lansing, it was learned
yesterday.
Campbell is a former delegate to
the State Convention of the Re-
publican Party and has previously
run in the party primaries for of-
fice in Superior Township.
* * *
BEFORE TAKING Shaffer's
case, Campbell said, "I thought
about it a good deal and decided
to take it as I would any other
case with a retainers fee." .
Campbell said that during the
course of the hearings he would
have no opportunity for rebuttal
or cross-examination under com-
mittee ground rules but indicat-
ed if Shaffer refused to answer
questions the 5th Amendment
might be invoked in his defense.
"The 5th Amendment was put
in the Constitution for a purpose."
Campbell said. "It is an unfor-
tunate thing that the public feels
the use of the Amendment implies
a witness is guilty of somethingfl.
This is prejudgement."
Although Shaffer has been sub-
poenaed to appar before the Con-
gressional committee currently
looking into Communist activity
in labor unions and educational
institutions in the State there is
no guarantee he will be called to
testify.
A second University student sub-
