Blair Moody, 49. a newspaper man, was appointed yesterday by Michigan's Democratic governor. G. Mennen Williams, to succeed Van- denbcrg. As a Senate newcomer, he v:il] get minor committee assignments, However, his addltton to the Democratic ranks means that party will get two more committee memberships under the new 50 to 46 margin over Ihe Republicans. McCarthy lo lie Humped Democratic leaders already have made up their minds to bump Senator McCarthy (R-Wls) off the important appropriations committee, IBngJng the present 11 to 10 ma- Sa>V ratio there to 12 to 9. Senator Robertson <D-Va) will get this place. The move will take McCarthy off a subcommittee deal- Ing with State Department ^affairs before he gets a chance to question Secretary of State Achcson. McCarthy has led the Republican attack on Acheson. To pick up their other place. Democrats will change the present 1 to 6 majority ratio on some committee to 8 to 5. They could do this on foreign relations but some Democratic senators said they hope this won't happen because it probably would produce new charges that the bipartl- handled. •Senator McMahon (D-Conn), a committee member, said he thinks It would be a mistake for the Democrats to take an additional seat. Brcwsler Is third In line to flu the Republican vacancy on the committee. Senators Bridges (R-NH) and Taft (R-Ohlol, ahead of him. have indicated they don't want It.

He supported the troops-to-Europe resolution but backed the amendment calling for congressional action on future troop assignments, which the administration fought.
