cerning a state convention of the"
Communist Party held in Janu-
ary, 1948, in Hamtramck, or of
other conventions held in March,
1949, and May, 1950, Congressman
Gordon Scherer emphatically ask-
ed, "It is a fact, however, that
you attended these conferences,
isn't it?"
"I again rely on the Fifth
Amendment, adding that no in-
ference as to my association ...j
should be drawn from my invo-!
cation of the Amendment,"
countered Graber.J
"I draw an inference," said
Scherer excitedly. a
"This committee lives on infer-

Clardy banged his gavel and in-
structed the witness not to "lecture,
the Committee" but to answer it's
questions as any "decent American
citizen would."
HAL ROSEN, a music teacher
for 17 years, invoked his Constitu-;
tional rights when asked if he had
ever been solicited to instruct in
any field other than he was sup-
posed to, specifically by the Michi-

identified at other hearings as a
Communist training school).
Relying on "all rights stated
in the Bill of Rights, numbers

a former member of the Motor
Carriers Central Association, de-
clared he would not discuss "myf

Claiming that the Committee
instituted "methods of inquisi-

had been issued a Communist Par-
ty card in 1947.
"Don't you walk out of here and
say you weren't given an oppor-
tunity to deny to the world that
you arernot a Communist," said
Rep. Clardy.
"You have no business askingl
me," retorted Bryant.
BRYANT further contended that

Henry Anbevender, council for

that his client's subpoena was

question but kept asserting that
he was reluctant to answer be-
cause he was afraid of "crossing

He appears healthy and eager
despite his recent bout with pneu-

monia which delayed the opening:
of the hearings. This cause of de-
lay is one of the reasons he indi-
cates as "nonsense" charges that
he is guilty of nicely designed "po-
licitical timing." His face takes onj
an expression of purpose as he ex-
plains that investigating Commu-
nism is so crucial that it is com-
pletely bipartisan. "Both Demo-
crats and Republicans have work-

anxious to make clear.
