MATTER OF FACT:
McCarthy Totally Defeated
By White House over Bundy

By JOSEPH ALSOP
WASHINGTON-Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy
has just suffered his first total, un-
mitigated, unqualified defeat by the White
House. The Administration strategists are
still seeking to preserve the meaningless
facade of Republican unity. They have al-
lowed McCarthy to conceal his defeat be-.
hind a typical smoke screen of misleading
statements. But the background story proves
that the junior Senator from Wisconsin
went down for the count of ten, all the same.
The occasion of this remarkable event
was the case of William P. Bundy, an offi-
cial of the Central Intelligence Agency. In
brief, President Eisenhower flatly refused to
permit McCarthy to subpoena Bundy. The
Republican members of McCarthy's com-
mittee, persuaded by Vice-President Richard
Nixon, also refused to support their chair-,
man.^And so McCarthy was routed on all
fronts, and forced to surrender.
Against the background of past Admin-
istration appeasement of McCarthy, this
event is so politically meaningful that the
whole story deserves to be told, even at
the risk of some repetition of what has
already been printed in this space.
In brief, McCarthy announced last Thurs-
day that he would subpoena Bundy to
answer grave charges before his committee.
These crimes for which Bundy was to ans-
wer were two in number. First, Bundy had
married one. of the most beautiful women
in Washington, who happens to be Dean
G. Acheson's daughter. Second, Bundy still
believes in the old-fashioned American tra-
dition of fair trials for the worst wrong-
doers, and had therefore contributed a sum
of money' to the defense fund of Alger Hiss.
* * * *
MC CARTHY'S speech to the Senate' was
interesting in itself. It was a farrago
of inaccuracies, such as a confusion between
William P. Bundy and his author brother,
McGeorge Bundy. It included several out-
right lies about an imaginary letter or state-
ment by Bundy explaining his contribution
to the Hiss defense fund. And it contained
fairly strong internal evidence of the elab-
orate espionage system-the large private
Gestapo-that McCarthy now has within
the government.
Long before making this speech, Mc-
Carthy had been clearly warned that
President Eisenhower would not stand for
any tampering with the CIAO-the intelli-
gence agency on which this country's se-
curity so heavily depends. On the same
Thursday when McCarthy spoke to the
Senate, the National Security Council vot-
ed to forbid Bundy to respond to McCar-
thy's subpoena, if one should be delivered.
McCarthy was informed of this vote the
same afternoon by Vice-President Richard
Nixon, who had joined in the NSC deci-
sion.
Here the matter stood over the weekend.
McCarthy continued to swear, in public and
in private, that he would subpoena 'Bundy.
White House sentiment was absolutely firm
for a policy of "no surrender." A public

falling out between McCarthy and the White
House appeared to impend. On Monday
evening, the problem was discussed at a
strategy dinner reportedly attended by Vice-
President Nixon, the chairman of the Re-
publican National Committee, Leonard Hall,
and Attorney General Herbert Brownell.
The decision seems to have been to do
the job the quiet way if possible. This turned
out to be possible because, in the interval,
Vice-President Nixon had persuaded Sens.
Charles Potter of Michigan, and Everett
Dirksen of Illinois to support the President.
THE DEMOCRATIC members of the Mc-
Carthy investigating committee resigned
last week, as a sequel of the slandei of the
Protestant clergy by McCarthy's pet inves-
tigator, J. B. Matthews. Thus Potter and
Dirksen represented half the remaining
committee membership. Even McCarthy's
customary ally, Sen. Carl Mundt of North
Dakota, was teetering on the fence. Mc-
Carthy was a minority of one.
The committee met Tuesday morning,
with McCarthy still demanding Bundy's
head on a platter. Dirksen was absent, but
the Vice-President had Dirksen's proxy,
for use if necessary. In these circum-
stances, McCarthy had to cave in com-
pletely, after considerable bluster. ,When
he agreed to abandon his plan to sub-
poena Bundy, the Administration strate-
gists amiably allowed him a little phony
face-saving.
The Director of CIA, Allan Dulles, was
called before the McCarthy committee, It
was subsequently announced that the CIA
would "cooperate" with McCarthy in such
ways as were permitted by its intelligence
function. McCarthy indicated that Dulles
had just been taught a good, sharp lesson;
but the man who got the lesson was Mc-
Carthy himself. The "cooperation" he en-
visioned is for the CIA to give McCarthy
the sort of data any Senator can have for
the asking. The White House has not re-
treated an inch.
Such is the story of an incident that may
well be remembered as the turning of the
tide. It has many suggestive features, such
as the admirable role played by the Vice-
President, and McCarthy's obvious eager-
ness to flout President Eisenhower. But the
main thing is that the White House has at
last found courage to meet a McCarthy
challenge, head on. There are many reasons
to think that this will be the usual policy,
from here on out.

Concert Shell
IT SEEMS strange that a University com-
munity such as ours lacks what is probably
the most useful summer facility for musical
and large dramatic productions.
We have a huge concert hall, numerous
smaller ones, even one ludicrously decorat-
ed with artificial starlight, excellent places
for showing movies and adequate theatres
for plays. But we have no shell or amphi-
theatre of any type.
For a town that is rated a cultural haven
ranking with the nation's best, Ann Arbor
plays second fiddle to New York with Lewis-
sohn Stadium, Chicago with Grant Park,
Detroit with the Fairgrounds, and many
other cities.
On a hot summer night we are forced
to forsake the out-of-doors if we wish
to attend a concert. Our lovely scenery,
which cries out to play host to artistic pre-
sentations, is relegated to a few quick
glimpses by the eye upon entering or
exciting the conicert hall.
The architect, Frank Lloyd Wright has
maintained that architecture should blend
in with natural surroundings, with the land-
scape. This idea is readily applicable to the
concert hall or the theatre.
In the winter conditions force us inside,
but when the snow has gone, a concert laid
against the backdrop of natural scenery
is a thousand times more enjoyable, more
pleasant, than any stuffy hall, by necessity
cramped with tightly packed seats.
A shell properly located in Ann Arbor
would provide the perfect vehicle for band
concerts, orchestral concerts, operas, musi-
cal comedies, even chamber music and
some plays where a very intimate atmos-
phere is not required.'
There are many such locations that exist,
two of which being the Arboretum, or the
proposed new campus. The Huron river
would be excellent. If this were the loca-
tion, the audience would be able to attend
a concert resting leisurely in a canoe.
Plans have already been drawn up to in-
clude a shell as part of the new North
Canpus. But it is common knowledge that
a University plan is always subject to the
legislature'swhim, and can easily pass out,
of the picture.
It is up to those who really desire a shell
to actively campaign. The more vociferous-
ly the demands are made, the quicker they
will be considered. When the consideration
has matured into action, our summer art-
istic efforts will be much more rewarding
and comfortable.

To the Editor:
THE DEFENDER of the Crown
in your last week's issue has
in effect given his reasons for
British Colonialism in Kenya, and
confirmed the present brutality of
the British under the guise of
fighting the Mau Mau. According
to him the Kenya Colony was set-
tled because there was spare land
for such a settlement. One wonders
why the British failed to settle in
the Sahara Desert. In his opin-
ion the British are the "savior", of
the disease-stricken Africans. This
is Napoleonic type of thinking.
Napoleon wished to be regarded
as a "merciful Emperor" for spar-
ing the lives of his vassals, even

ing to the self-centered imperial-
ists intoxicated with the desire to
usurp other people's wealth.

aid of the disease-stricken Afri-
cans? If their occupation of Ken-
ya is so unprofitable to them, and
so advantageous to the Kenya peo-
ple, why do they resist the bid to
leave the country? The majority
of Kenya people do not under-
stand the wicked intention of the
British to reduce the Africans to
serfs. The few who do, are doing
all -ih their power to expel the
British, lest it is too late. At least
with their own blood they have
focused world attention to the
evils of British imperialism. The
Kenya trouble is a danger signal
to the "Darwinian" British Im-
perialists to cease "man's inhu-
manity to man."
It is evident that Nigeria and
the Gold Coast are progressing,
although at a snail-speed, be-
cause the British never settled
in these areas. How many Col-
lege graduates are there in Ken-
ya since '70 years'of British tute-
lage? Only 6, in a population of
over 5 million. In Nigeria, about
3,000 out, of 30 million. Judge
for yourself. U.S. would not have
been so developed if your "fa-
thers" didn't fight for your in-
dependence. Remember that no-
thing the British did in Africa
that was not primarily designed
for the exclusive interest of the
British.
Call it what you may, the Afri-
cans want self-determination;
they want the super-generous
guests (British) to go home. We
can afford to live and enjoy our
God-given Africa without their
predatory scientific gift. It. is a
shame that history has no mean-

brook Pegler.

This particular prong of Me-
Carthyism can be blunted and
turned away if we in the aca-
demic community "stick togeth-
er," as Mr. Britz says-in con-
crete terms, if we subordinate
our differences of opinion or
this or that to the general pur-
pose of defending the right of
the professor to teach, and the
student to study, without a.
know - nothing Congressman
peering over his shoulder for
evidence of heresy.
The militant statement of Al-
bert Einstein sums up my feelings
on the matter :
"Every intellectual who'is call-
ed before one of the committees
ought to refuse to testify, i.e., he
must be prepared for jail anl eco-
nomic ruin, in short, for the sac-
rifice of his personal welfare in
the interest of the cultural welfare
of his country.
"The refusal to testify must
be based on the assertion that
it is shameful for a blameless
citizen to submit to such inqui-
sition and that this kind of in-
quisition violates the spirit of
the Constitution.
"If enough people are ready to
take this grave step they will be
successful. If not, then the in-
tellectuals of this country de-
serve nothing better than the
slavery which is intended for
them."
In this advice to a New York
school teacher Einstein set a
spark that will ultimately pro-
vide Velde with a warm recep-
tion in Detroit, I'm sure.

THE LAVENDER HILL MOB, with Alec
Guinness.
CINEMA GUILD presents tonight an old
favorite with Ann Arboreals.
Unlike the cluttered scenario of Arsenic
and Old Lace, Lavender Hill Mob offers the
"exquisite face" of Alec Guinness in its wit-
ty reactions to a series of extraordinary sit-
uations. Guinness devotees will find this
time around a shade beneath the calibre
of The Man in the White Suit, but that is
a very slight. qualification.
The action, which increases in pace .as
the minutes pass by, revolves around a
fastidious and highly principled bullion
inspector who flips his lid after twenty
years of golden opportunities. With the
aid of an artist friend (Stanley Holloway)
and two professionals, he executes a
scheme to smuggle the stuff out of the
country.
Of course, the grent enterprise goes awry
and an international chase-involving an
hilarious auto flight and a slapstick version
nose-dives to a clever though somewhat
of the traditional Eiffel Tower descent-
predictable fade-out.
As usual, it's Guinness all the way with
his special charm and gentle kidding of his
role. If you like him, this is a must. If you
don't, drop over to the NPI.

WASHINGTON -- GOP Senator Homer
Ferguson of Michigan, who faces a tough
re-election fight next year, is so jittery over
Harry Truman's talk with Gen. Hoyt Van-
denberg urging him to run for the Senate
in Michigan, that he summoned Gen. Nate
Twining, Vandenberg's successor as Air
Force Chief of Staff, up to Capitol Hill to a
secret luncheon. He then proceeded to pres-
sure him to discredit Gen. Vandenberg's
testimony regarding the air force budget.
Ferguson wanted Twining to testify that
Vandenberg had exaggerated budget Air
Force needs and had been insubordinate
to his superior, Secretary of Defense Charles
E. Wilson.
Twining refused. Whereupon Senator
Ferguson called a Senate hearing which in
effect put Twining on the spot. He had to
testify. Subordinates at the Pentagon ad-
vised Twining that the wisest course was
for him to get along with the Senate and
disavow Gen. Vandenberg.
In the end, however, Twining took a -
middle course, told Senators that, while the
Air Force needed the money, it could prob-
ably get along on Secretary Wilson's pro-
posed budget.
. -DULLES KEEPS TALKING--
Secretary of State Dulles just can't seem
to get away from saying the wrong thing
at the wrong time.
The other day Robert D. Stuart, head of
the Quarker Oats Company, was being
sworn in as Ambassador to Canada. The
ceremony took place in Dulles' office with
newsmen and photographers present, in-
cluding, of course, the newsmen whose re-
ports reach various foreign countries.
"Mr. Ambassador," said Dulles, making a
brief speech to Stuart, "it seems to me that
I have participated in quite a few ceremonies
for new ambassadors lately. And it gives
me great pleasure to swear in a man who is
going to a decent country."
-"TRUTH-FOR-TROUT" ACT-
Congress has discovered a new way to
make sure its constituents are kept happy.
A bill recently passed by the Senate, but
still in committee in the House, would make
it a law that a fish fancier know from
whence his trout cometh.
All trout imported into the United States,
under this bill must be conspicuously labeled
as to the country of origin. Furthermore, all
restaurants miist carry the country of ori-

lems for Mamie's husband's budget and
for his policy of unfettered business. For
the Pure Food and Drug people, who will
have to enforce the act, make this country
last year. Yet to make sure that none of the
525,000 restaurants of the nation misrep-
resented their trout on their menus will cost
half a million dollars.
This money has not been included in.
Ike's already overtaxed budget. Even so,
trout farmers claim that, unlike Romeo's
rose, a trout by any other name would not
taste as sweet.
NOTE-About two million pounds of trout
are imported annually. Importers of 700,000,-
000 pounds of other kinds of fish, Canadian
mackerel, Portuguese sardines, and Nor-
wegian herring, are wondering whether their
fish will soon have to be stamped too.
-UNFETTERED GAS RATES--
It has gone unnoticed, but the natural gas
lobby is pushing legislation through Con-
gress that will virtually wipe out the fed-
eral government's authority to regulate
natural gas rates. This will boost the house-
wives' cooking and heating bill by billions.
What, is even more shocking, however, is
that the Federal Power Commission is ac-
tually helping to put itself out of business.
Under new Republican management, the
commission has notified Congress that it
approves "in theory" the legislation that
would strip its authority over natural gas
rates.
Specifically, the new legislation would
abolish the commission's authority to regu-
late the wholesale price of natural gas
sold by pipeline companies at state bor-
ders. This goes much further than the
Kerr bill, which would have deprived the
commission of its authority over natural
gas prices at the wellhead. The Kerr bill
was vetoed by President Truman, despite
his friendship for Senator Kerr of Okla-
homa, its author, and many Republicans,
coming from gas-consuming states in the
north, voted to uphold his veto.
However, the natural gas lobby has now
got three old friends to carry the bail in
Congress-Representatives Cal Hinshaw of
California, John Beamer of Indiana, both
Republicans, and Oren Harris of Arkansas,
a Democrat. They have introduced three
identical bills, which would practically put
the housewives at the mercy of the gas
companies.

were "of the opinion" that a truce
must not jeopardize the restora-
tion of the safeguarding of peace
in any other part of Asia.
That was direct warning to the
Communists not to start anything
new, and not to intensify situa-
tions which already exist, as in
Indochina.
The point was made against the
background of an agreement for
strengthening the Allied position
in Indochina in a political way in
the hope that a unified effort
would also produce a much more
satisfactory military position.
The French have been afraid
of greater autonomy for the
three Indochinese states lest the
whole war effort be weakened
by their weakness. But the po-
litical situation finally reach-
ed the point where the collapse
of all co-operation seemed so
sure that there was no course
left except to accede to Indo-
chinese demands.
The kingdoms are to be brought
into greater partnership-if they

gained contr l of two European
nations-Italy first and then Ger-
many-in the aftermath of the
First World War. There can be no
doubt by now that in the Repub-
lican demagogy there is the stuff
of which totalitarian .movements
are made.
