Apm n, <AP)— Republicans called today for a prompt decision by the Senate on whether to set In motion again the sensational probe of crime and the underworld. Senator Wiley (R-Wisc) said he would Introduce during the day a resolution to extend the senate Crime Investigating Committee's life to next Jan, 15. Wiley and Senator Tobey (R-NH), GOP members of - the committee, are sponsoring the resolution. Wiley told a retwrter he planned to ask the Senate to set aside next Monday to act on the resolution, without referring It to a regular committee. Falling In that, he said, he would ask for a committee recommendation no later than Tuesday. He pressed for a decision in the face of recommendation from a special commission of the American Bar Association that efforts now be centered on pa,ssSnR anti-crime laws. Wiley and Tcbcy argue the crime committee had numerous leads it should follow up and that investigations should be made in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Washington and other cities not covered in the committee's dramatic touring inquiry over most of the past year. . Limited Extension Asked The bar association commission, headed by former Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson, recommended yesterday a limited extension of the crime committee only to help get anti-crime measures written into law.
