ARMY-MCCARTHY HEARINGS: HIGHLIGHTS, PT. 13 (RADIO)

Summary

Excerpts from Senate Subcommittee on Investigations hearings on U.S. Army charges that Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.) used "improper" methods in attempts to gain preferential treatment for his chief consultant, Pvt. G. David Schine. Former subcommittee counsel Roy Cohn questions Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens about suspected communists suspended at Fort Monmouth. Ray H. Jenkins asks McCarthy whether this was as a result of his investigations. McCarthy examines Stevens and asks if there are communists in the army at the present time. Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo.) criticizes McCarthy for talking the longest and complaining the most about length of committee hearings. McCarthy denies this.
