FACE EIGHT BLYTH3V1LLE, (AKK.) COURIER NEWS •ATUftDAY, AUGUST 4, MM Prospects Dim for Quick Senate Action on 'Campaign Tactics WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. W) — Prospects appeared dlin today for' any <juick Senate action to halt election campaign tactics a subcommittee has denounced as "despicable." Even senators who favor such action said they need further study of the situation—and on a broader basis—before starting a drive for new legislation and a revision of Senate rules. These proiwsals were urged yesterday by a Senate elections subcommittee which Investigated the 1950 Maryland senatorial election campaign. In that campaign Senator John Marshall Butler, a Republican, defeated the veteran Millard Tydings, a Democrat, by some «.000 votes. The subcommittee—made up of three Democrats and two Republicans—unanimously condemned as * "despicable 'back street' type" tin campaign conducted In Butler's behalf by Individuals it called "non-Maryland outsiders." Criticism Provoked Tin report brought sharp orltt- oism from Senator McCarthy (R- Wl»), who was named In the document as one of those who exerted "outside Influence" In the defeat of Tydlngi. Tho «uboouimlUe«, a part of tho Senate rulM committee, said in a report to th« parent group that, "th« fact* developed from the evi- denc« . . . »re not sufficient In our judgment to recommend the un- MaUng of Senator Butler." The Croup added: "Thii 1* not V> say we approve or oondoni certain acts and conduct fcx his campaign. To tha contrary, w« vigorously denounce such acts and conduct and recommend a Btudgr looking fco the adoption of rulw br thi Senate which would tnak« acta of slander and libel (round* for presentment to the Senate for the purpose o( declaring A «»t vacant." Re«ommMida4loiu Mad« Tha ftubcommlttee also recommended enactment of new legisla. tlon designed to halt the practices it denounced. Although 6b« group criticized those who ran Butler's campaign as principally responsible, it added that Butler "was negligent In respect to certain Implied responsibility of a candidate for high office." Butler Leaves City Butler crammed a copy of the report In his pocket and left for New York shortly after the subcommittee's report was Issued. His office said there would be no comment until he returns to Washington, probably loclay. Tydlngs, now a monitor o! a Washington law firm, is In Europe and was not immediately available for comment, He lias charged that Butter's campaign was "a tissue ot lies" and lie urged the Inquiry group to label it as such. flutter, at the time Tydings made the accusation, retorted that Tydings was nuking "reckless and unjustified attacks upon me."
