03:18:53 Senate Committee w/ Karl Mundt; Joseph McCarthy; Margaret Chase Smith;

03:19:03 CU Army 2-star Major-General at mic: The question of my retirement came up, I don t know who mentioned it, whether he did or I did; but at that time General Bond (?) did say that he felt I was best qualified for the job, that I should succeed myself. He said that I was only 56 years old, that there was still good service left in me, that he knew of my abilities, that he thought there was a possibility that I might succeed myself.

03:19:40 In connection w/ my reappointment? Senator: Yes. General: I assumed that as a friend he would give me such assistance as he could, I knew that he knew many people in high positions; I wasn t counting on Col. Hunt getting me the job. Senator: But you would have welcomed any assistance? General: I would have welcomed any assistance that I could have gotten...which was proper. Senator: And you got did welcome his assistance, is that correct? General: I don t know that he gave me any assistance. Senator: But did you seek it? General: No, not deliberately seek it. Senator: If you didn t seek it deliberately, did you seek it in any manner? General: By implication I don t know, let me say this: here I am dealing w/ one of my closest friends, I don t have to ask him for help; I know my friends will do whatever they can for me. I can t recall asking Col. Hunt [James V.] at anytime to do anything for me. Brief shot of committee, including Senator Joseph McCarthy.

03:35:05 CU General Harry H. Vaughan, reads statement (SOF): The freezers which have been discussed here were a gift from two old friends of mine. This gift was an expression of friendship & nothing more. There is absolutely no connection between this gift & any assistance I have given these friends. At no time have I taken action as a member of the White House staff in exchange for a gift or other favor. With respect to John Maragon, I have known him since 1941 when he was employed by a railroad company to assist in obtaining transportation for members of Congress. I have had no business connections w/ Mr. Maragon. I have never authorized him to represent or speak for me, or the White House, in any matters pertaining to my duties. Upon his request, I have given him assistance in matters when it appeared entirely proper to do so. There is nothing to conceal in my record as a public servant. I will answer any questions you gentlemen may wish to ask. I have discharged my duty honestly, & to the best of my ability.

Senator: Have you ever, at any time, received any fee or commission, or shared w/ anybody else in receiving any fee or commission in connection w/ any of those operations? Vaughan: No so, I did not. It had never occured to me. My duties at the White House in that connection, were the continuation of practically the same duties here in Senator Truman s office. Senator: In any of these matters did you have occasion to advise the President of what was transpiring, or did you do it just on your own? Vaughan: I have never had any occasion, that I can recall, to advise the President on any action I have taken in any particular instance; I didn t think it was necessary because I was performing according to the President s instructions that he had given to me before. He had never had occasion to change them, & I would just continued to operate in the same way. And I felt sure he would be the first one to tell me if he wanted me to change.

09:18:27 Man at microphones w/ arms folded speaks (SOF): It seems to me I met him in Milwaukee. What was the occasion? He was there at some social gathering. With whom? General Bond . Is that the first time you met him? Yes. Did you have an occasion to talk to him? Yes, I believe I did talk to him. Did he tell you what his business was? I think he talked so much I didn t remember all the details. When you left did you know what business he was in? No, but I guess I was impressed w/ his importance. In other words he represented that he had a lot of influence? I don t know if he did that, but he said he d lived in Washington a long time & knew everyone.

09:19:22 Did you have any discussion at all about fees? I have a vague recollection that I gave him $500. Well, if you paid a man $500, wouldn t you have a vivid recollection of it? (applause) Well if I d been paying out my own money I probably would have, but I was paying out the Allied money. Well even paying out somebody else s money you don t pay out $500 to a man every day or two? In all probabiliy I gave him that other $500 or I wouldn t have reported it to the Allied. Why do you say you paid him $500 in cash or know or not? ...I think so; for the record I paid it. Swish pan.

09:20:16 CU Joseph McCarthy, SOF: I think the country is extremely fortunate that we do have such a fair minded Chairman conducting this hearing; I am sure that he will insist that all fruitful angles will be explored & as the hearing continues the developments will be very interesting.

10:07:34 SOF At the direction of the President, I called the Secretary of Agriculture to find if the quarters were going to be changed. And I reported to the Presdient & that is the sum total to my connection to it. I never made any suggestions about whether they should be changed or whether they shouldn t. I knew nothing about it. ....It was reduced before that.

11:06:38 Huie asks about the atrocity reports of Korea. McCarthy says the Judge Advocate General who let out the story must be telling the truth. Those guilty are Acheson s agrarian reformers.

11:07:40 Huie: As a critic of the State Department & the Administration... Mc: That s putting it mildly!

McCarthy responding to thought that atrocity information was withheld so as to not destroy morale.. I don t believe your troops need to be spoonfed. I think they can take the raw, harsh facts...& they should get them.

11:09:20 Mc: No reason why Stalin should start a shooting war while he is winning so rapidly without a shooting war & while we are cooperating so fully.

11:10:1? Huie: How do you define McCarthyism, sir? Mc: I didn t coin the phrase, The Daily Worker...was the first newspaper to use it...McCarhyism is apparently calling a man a communist and later is proven to be one.

11:10:5? Huie: Have you had any regrets on any of the tactics you ve used on the State Dept. sir? Mc: I think at times we should have hit much the Jessop case... Says that State Dept. can no more change than a leopard can change his spots...quotes Shakespeare.

11:12:02 Huie: Do you think you think you have been guilty of any Un-Americanism yourself... Mc: If fighting Communists & getting a bit rough w/ them...then I must plead to being Un-American... Sen. Tydiings is the man who defeated Sen. Tydings, not McCarthy. McCarthy talks about Tydings challenge to convict 57 Communists... (too expensive, says McCarthy).

11:13:29 Mc: LIttle Willie Benton, Connecticutt s mental midget keeps on, it will be unnecessary for me or for anyone else to do any campaiging against him. He s doing his campaigning against himself!

11:13:45 Mc on his re-election next year. ..very viscious campaign...the usual party line smear attempt...

20:32:16 McCarthy in front of three mics reads statement: A few days ago I read that President Eisenhower expressed the hope that by election time in 1954 the subject of Communism would be a dead & forgotten issue. The raw, harsh, unpleasant fact is that Communism is an issue; and will be an issue in 1954. Truman s diatribe against those who expose Communists is the best proof of that. We should remember that practically every issue which we face today from high taxes to the shameful mess in Korea is inextricably interwoven with the Communist issue.
