President Truman Calls McCarthy
A Character Assassin
Compiled by Leonard Calvert
(*>oin tlihi wires of the United Pres* and Associated Press)
I’resident Truman called Sen. Joseph McCarthy patho
logical and a character assassin Thursday. The President
made the statement in regard to McCarthy’s recent attacks
against i lavid IJoyd, an administrative assistant to the Prcsi
d.’iit, and I’hilleo N’ash, a W hite llonse adviser. The President
said that McCarthy’s attack followed the same line as all the
attacks hy the “pathological'' McCarthy against government
workers who incur the dislike of the senator.
Premier Aly Maher Pasha might negotiate . . .
...Egypt's dispute with Britain, a foreign office spokesman said
Thursday. The spokesman said that Maher is ready to accept a pro
posal which would satisfy Egypt's national aspirations. Meanwhile,
Cairo was tense and a feeling of nervousness prevailed among the
people, although there had been no new outbreaks since Saturday's
rioting in the capitol.
All U.S. Iranian information service . . .
.-■and cultural centers in Iran were closed except those in the
capitol of Tehran ,th<- State department said Thursday. State depart
ment spokesman Michael J. McDermott said that there has been no
information ns to why the centers were closed.

Eisenhower, Taft and Stassen . . .
. . . have entered the New Hampshire primary. Taft announced Wed
nesday that In- would not withdraw, although conditions looked un
favorable for him. Eisenhower is regarded as the favorite, but Henry
Cabot Lodge, Jr., says that the primary won't be a "pushover for
anyone." President Truman said Thursday that he will withdraw his
name from the Democratic primary in New Hampshire, thus leaving
the way open for Sen, Estes Kefauver. President Truman said that
this was not indicative of his plans for the future.
Paul Robeson, Negro singer. . .
.. . was refused entrance into Canada by U.S, immigration officers.
Also refused entry was Robeson’s attorney, Vincent William Hallinan.
District immigration director refused to make any comment on the
action except to say thut the action was taken “in the best interest of
the United States."

Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia . . .
.. . was offered the job of price stablizer by President Truman
Thursday. He would succeed Michael D. DiSalle, informed sources
said. DiSalle is resigning to run for the Democratic senatorial nomina
tion in Ohio. The same sources indicated that Arnall will accept the
post as soon as he can end or suspend his connections with his Atlanta
law firm and obtain leave of absence from his position as president of
the Independent Motion Picture Producers association.
An estimated 430,000 men . ..
. . . will go into the armed forces in the seven months period ending
June 30. Selective service director Lewis B. Hershey made the estimate
in assuring the house armed services committee that there will be
enough men left in the manpower pool to start military training on
a limited scale “immediately."
Hershey urged that a universal military training program be started
- immediately "on a modest scale." He told the committee draft and
UMT "can and must" operate at the same time, but said the first
"Umteos' would have to go into active military service after their
training instead of into the reserves as originally planned. However,
Committee Chairman Carl Vinson told newsmen enough 18-ycar-olds
could be spared from the draft, pool so the "Umtecs" could be placed
in the reserves for seven and one-half years after their six months
training. Only in this way, the Georgia Democrat said, can a pool
of trained reserves be built up so it will be possible to reduce the stand
ing military force.
Winston Churchill came out . . .
... on lop in one of the biggest tests of his three-month hold on the
British government. The House of Commons gave Churchill's con
servative government a strong vote of confidence on its new, grim
austerity program. The small liberal party helped the conservatives
win by a vote of 306 to 275. The Conservative majority is only 14
Votes over all other parties.
Then the House adopted the new program by nearly identical vote.
Tlie votes climaxed two days of bitter debate with former Prime
Minister Attlee leading the labor party attack.
F'or the man in the street, it means Britons will be able to buy less
and less, while more and more British goods are sold abroad.

The Ohio river flood . . .
... has tapered off enough so that downstream areas now face a rise
of not more than seven feet above normal, considered to be a little more
than a high-water situation in most places.
The Reconstruction Finance corporation has declared the entire
Ohio river valley a disaster area, which opens the way for govern
ment loans. In addition to ten deaths, government engineers estimate
damage at 23 million dollars so far.
President Truman surveyed the damage from a plane Thursday and
was enthusiastic about the job flood control projects had done in pro
tecting many areas. Conditions are not nearly as bad as in 1937, he
said, and nothing like the Missouri-Kansas floods he saw last year.
On the basis of what he saw, Tt upjan said he doesn't think he'll have to
ask Congress for more flood relief funds.
