Senate Blasts McCarthy Probe -45-37

Bitter Session
Accepts Report
WASHINGTON-(G)-A n e a r
fist-fight, name calling, and an
effort to :play a phonograph in
the Senate provided a brisk sequel
today to formal Senate acceptance
of a Democratic report denounc-
ing Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis) for
h i s Communists-in-government
The r e p o r t, branding Mc-
Carthy's charges as a "fraud and
a hoax," was accepted by a 45
to 37 vote, divided strictly accord-
ing to party lines. The Democrats
were for the report, the Republi-
cans against it.
The more spectacular parts of
the proceedings came later.

the rounding up of absent Sena-

Wherry and Morgan. The latter
was on the floor by virtue of his
assignment as counsel for the Ty-

As their argument reached a
climax, the two men stepped out-
side the Senate. There were un-

attempted by both men, but none

McCarthy porportedly said he

But the phonograph was denied
the right to speak.
McCarthy's colleagues protest-
ed the strong language and the
conclusions of the majority re-
port, and challenged its validity.
They contended it was "out of
order" and should not be filed.
A 45 to 37 vote tabled Wherry's
appeal, and the report went into
the Senate records.

Flaming Taejon fell to the North Korean Communists, and Amer-

The U.S. 12th Infantry Division withdrew from Taejon in the
face of a Communist tank thrust after fighting a stubborn battle on
the approaches and in the streets of the city.

Dean Sawyer said that if the
U.S. became involved in a major
war we would have to use the
atomic bomb as our most stra-

But, he said in explaining the
potential of the bomb, an atomic
bomb explosion can not cause more
damage than was accomplished by
some of the major bombing raids
in the last war.
ATOMIC BOMBS of the type
