Transcript Jenner Traces Hinton Pattern Senator William E. Jenner, Internal Security Subcommittee Chairman, lasl September summarized tbe William Hinton Le-sti- mony as follows: Two months ago. one William If. Hinton appeared before the Subcommittee on Internal Security. He returned to the I nited Slates in August, 1953, after a stopover in Moscow. Since bis arrival in ihis country, he has been propagandizing on behalf of the brainwashing, soul-killing Red Chine-,-, whose soldiers were torturing and slaying Hinton's fellow Americans at the very moment he was on Red China's payroll. The Subcommittee on Internal Security never scrutinizes participants in the Communisl world con- spiracy as mere individuals. None of them are mere individuals. They are cogs in a machine, threads in a fabric, figures in a pattern. Il is the machine, the fabric, lhe pattern which we always seek to uncover anil explain lo the American people. So we looked at the pattern around W il- lieim Hinton. Here is what we found. To begin with, there is his family. On.' sister. Jean, was a friend of ihe notorious Nathan Gregory Silvermaster and worked under him at the old Farm Security Administration. Another sister. Joan. was an atomic research assistant at the Los Alamos project, where -he had access to classified material. Like her brother. William. Joan also went to China and -lave,I there after the Communisl triumph. She got a job through another American. Gerald Tanne- baiiin. who was executive director of the China Welfare Fund headed bv Madame Sun Y at-sen, one of lhe world symbols of Chinese communism. We -hall hear about Tan- nebauin. the China Welfare Fund, and Madame Sun as these hearings progress. In China. Joan married Erwi i Engst, who was . . . an old I NUBA man. Today the Engsts are some where in the depths of I unci Mongolia, serving lhe Communist cause. Joan came out of obseuiilv long enough to make a bitterly anti-American speech at the Communist-inspired fraud known as the Asian and Pacific Peace Conference, regarding which the subcommittee also expects lo reveal a great deal. lhe Putney School, which is run by William Hinton's mother and where he himself vviis employed, is a story in itself. -One of its faculty members was Edwin S. Smith. Smith later became a registered propagandist for the Sov iel government. He distributed photographs attempting lo prove thai the I nited States practiced germ warfare in North Korea. Another person eloselv associated with Putney was Owen Latti- Senator William Jenner more. The subcommittee found, after a 15-month inquiry, thai Lattimore was a "conscious, articulate instrument of the Soviet conspiracy." Lattimore built the Pacific Op- orations Branch of OWL for which Ilinlon later worked in Chungking. John K. Fairbank was at the top of OWI's Chinese organization. Benjamin Kizer ran the Chinese branch of I'.NKliA for which Hinton also worked. Lattimore, Fairbank. and Kizer all were kev figures iii the Institute of Pacific Relations: All three were named as Communists in sworn testimony before us. All three denied the charge, but when counsel for the subcommittee asked Hinton about bis connections with Lattimore and Kizer. In- seiid ii mighl incriminate him to give a true answer to the question. Il was exlremelv inter,-ling I,, learn that Hinton wenl on duly in Chungking at the end of World War II. He bad some strange predecessors. There were, for instance, the political advisers assigned by Ihe State Department to Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer. who was chief of staff lo General- issimo (hiang Kai-shek after the removal of General Stilwell. This choice little Slate Department group included John Stewart Service. John Paton Davies, Raymond Ludden, and John K. F.mmcrson. "If I bad followed their advice." General Wedemeyer said in testimony before the subcommittee. "communism would have run rampant oyer China much more rapidly than it did." Ce n. Claire Chennanll. who saw this group in action, told our subcommittee thai ils members "functioned as a public relations bureau for the Yenan Communists." John Carter Vincent was on duty at Chungking during pari of the war period. So was Solomon Adler. The Loyalty Review Board found that there is a "reasonable doubt" about Vincent's loyally In lhe United Stales. As for Adler. be was the chief Communisl agent in China of Harry Dexter White. Davies. in the unanimous opinion of thc subcommittee, "testified falsely" when he appeared before us in 1952. According lo Joseph Alsop: John P. Davies, Jr., once Beri- ously a,-ens,-,I tl,,- Generalissimo "1 traffic with the Japanese on tin- odd authority of tin- vice-chairman of the Chin,--,- Communist party. Chou En-lai. So that is a picture of the original American group in Chungking, which cleared the path for Ihe ultimate Communisl victory. What other Americans replaced them? Where are they now ? What are they doing lo aid and comfort lhe bloody cause of Red China? Who else and what else is in this pattern around William Ilinlon? What can we do lo rip il apart? I In -e were the obvious quesliolls which confronted ihe subcommittee after Ilinlon appealed before us. These are lhe questions lhal must be answered, for the sake of America's safetv.
