The Outside World
By FRED DALY
Sen. William E. Jenner (R-Ind) said Monday that the special
censure group on Sen. Joseph McCarthy ignored the "all important"
evidence that McCarthy was fighting a "conspiracy." Because of this,
he said, the Senate cannot vote on the censure recommendations.
Jenner was the first speaker as the Senate resumed consideration
of the censure charges against the Wisconsin Republican. Efforts were
being made to find a compromise solution, but Senate GOP leader
William F. Knowland said the outcome of such efforts would depend
on what he called the future "atmosphere" of the debate.
The compromise would call for rebuking McCarthy for some of
his "extreme" statements, praising him for "alerting the country"
to the Communist danger and calling for early action next year on
proposed Senate rule changes governing investigating committees.
Formosan Ship Sunk
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's military chiefs met today to cope
with an emergency caused by the sinking of a U.S. -built Nationalist
warship by four Communist Chinese torpedo boats.
The destroyer-escort Tai Ping went down north of the Nationalist
held Tachen Islands, 200 miles north of Formosa, after being attacked
early Sunday. All but 28 of the 200 crewmen were reported to have
been picked up by Nationalist planes.
Sinking of the Tai Ping was the third Communist move in the
recent outbreak of fighting around Chiang's outpost islands. Earlier,
the Reds had Heavily shelled Quemoy Island. 115 miles north of
Formosa, and bombed the northernmost Tachen Islands.
