Committee Gives

President Eisenhower Squelches
Charges Leveled Against Nominee
By The Associated Press
A Senate subcommittee in Washington hurriedly, approved Earl
Warren for chief justice of the United States yesterday after the pub-
licizing of unchecked charges against him produced a roar of angry
President Dwight D. Eisenhower stepped into the row with a
statement that Warren is "one of the finest public servants this
country has ever produced."
THE PRESIDENT volunteered his comment at his Palm Springs,
Calif. vacation headquarters shortly after a Senate Judiciary sub-
committee headed by Sen. Langer

Top State

- Admits Part
rIn Snapping
Hiss Papers
ALBANY, N.Y. -. (A) - A Mos-
cow-trained American photogra-
pher yesterday confessed after 15
years of silence that he had filmed
the famed "Pumpkin Papers" that
led to the perjury conviction of
Alger Hiss.
Felix A. Inslerman, now a 44-
year-old draftsman living in Cam-
bridge, N.Y., testified before Sen.
Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) that
he had photographed State De-
partment documents for the Whit-
taker Chamber spy ring in 1937
and 1938, although not a card-
carrying Red.
SITTING as a one-man Senate
Investigations subcommittee, Mc-
Carthy ended a two-day public
hearing here by ordering two em-
ployes of the General Electric Co.
plant at Schenectady thrown out
of the federal courtroom.
McCarthy called the hearing
as part of his investigation of
alleged Communists at the GE
and other defense plants. Insler-
man once worked for GE as an
electrical engineer on a guided
* missile project.
Inslerman's confession came as
a surprise, since he twice had re-
' fused to testify about his role in
the Red underground.
He said he had photographed
documents from "some time in
late 1937" to "the late spring or
summer of 1938."
* * *
HE RECALLED seeing on the
papers the names "Grew" and
"Bullitt"-apparently referring to
Joseph Clark Grew, former U.S.
Ambassador to Japan, and William
C. Bullitt, wh was envoy to Rus-
sia and later to France.
Chambers, a confessed ex-
courier for the Red under-
ground, led FBI men in 1948 to
a hollow pumpkin on his farm
in Westminster, Md., and pro-
duced microfilmed copies of 47
State Department documents.
"Pumpkin Papers" were the
main prosecution evidence in Hiss'
two trials on charges of perjury.
Griller String
Group To Give
Final Concert
The Griller String Quartet will
present the last concert of the
Chamber Music Festival at 2:30
p.m. today in Rackham Auditor-
On the program will be the Bach
and Mozart "Five Fugues," Ed-
mund Rubbra's "Quartet No. 2 in
E-flat, Op. 73" and Beethoven's
"Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 127."
* * *
NOW IN ITS 24th year, the
quartet has remained together
without change in personnel. Each
man in the group has been made
a Fellow of the Royal Academy of
Music in London, while first vio-
linist Sidney Griller was made
Commander of the Order of the
British Empire by the late King
George VI.
After graduation together
from the Royal Academy, the
quartet lived and practiced in
an abandoned box-car in the
south of England. Between 1929
and 1939 the group, which -in-
cludes second violinist Jack
O'Brien, violist Philip Burton
and violoncellist Colin Hampton,
performed in over a thousand

concerts throughout Great Brit- I

(R-ND) voted to recommend con-
firmation of Warren's appintment
to the nation's No. 1 judicial post.
Langer, who ordered a public
recital of 10 unevaluated accusa-
tions against Warren late Fri-
day, was still at odds with mem-
bers of the subcommittee-this
time over whether yesterday's
vote was unanimous.
Langer said Warren's confirma-
tion was recommended "by a ma-
jority." He said he had simply vot-
ed to send the nomination to the
full Judiciary Committee for ac-
tion. But Sen. Welker (R-Idaho),
who attended the closed-door ses-
sion, said the vote was unanimous.
"I know what I'm talking about,"
Welker snapped.
* * *
dent said "My comments on Gov-
ernor Warren will be limited mere-
ly to my own opinion-my posi-
"My high opinion of him and
my confidence in him is demon-
strated by the fact that I nom-
inated him for one of the high-
est offices in the land.
"I did this on the basis of my
knowledge of him and my appre-
ciation of his great qualities.
"Every contact I have had with
him since he came to Washington
-and all I have heard about him
-has served only to increase my
confidence in him and my high
opinion of him," the President

sent it to the Senate Jan, 11, now
goes to the full committee, also
headed by Langer. The eight Re-.
publicans and seven Democrats on
the full committee are scheduled
to act on it Wednesday.
. Among other things, Warren
was accused by various critics of
following the "Marxist line," of ap-
pointing dishonest judges when he
was governor of California, and of
having been under the control of
a liquor lobbyist.
India Sparks
Indochina Plan
-India last night was reported
preparing to start a move for a
cease-fire between the French and
Communist-led Vietminh forces to
end the long war in Indochina.
India's plan is expected to be
disclosed in New Delhi tomorrow
by Prime Minister Jawaharlal
* * *
THE MOVE apparently is being
timed to get attention at the Ko-
rean peace conference being ar-
ranged for Geneva, Switzerland,
late in April.
The Geneva conference is be-
Ing held mainly as a Korean
parley with Red China as a par-
ticipant, but it also may range
over the Indochina situation as
American attention has been
brought to bear sharply on Indo-
china recently by President Eis-
enhower's decision sending airj
technicians to help service planes
used by the French.
