PAG* TEN B1ATHEVILUS (AKK.) N*iW» JULY 11, 1949 Hiss Trial Judge May Face Probe Formal Demands For Investigation Appear in Offing ' WASHINGTON, July 11. (API — Two HOUM Republicans apparently •re working up to formal demands Mr an Investigation of Judge Sam- ur! H Kaufman's handling of Hie Alger His« perjury trial. '.Reps. Velde (R-I11) and Nixon (R-Callf) are getting ready to back up complaints against Kaufman— they say he favored the Hiss defense—with speeches on tlie House floor. And the two, partners on the House Un - American Activities Committee, may go farther. Nixon definitely wants an investigation aaid aides say be will tight to get one. Velde 'will back Nixon. An old-fashioned political scrap could result that would give a new twUt to the celebrated HLis-Chtim- berfi case—a case that so far has featured charge* of espionage and perjuiy.

Nixon said Kaufman had been unfair and there should be an investigation. He said politics figured In the trial, that the 'Airman administration didn't want anything bad to happen to Hiss because it feared there would be support for reports of Communist Infiltration of the government during the New Deal. As a member of the Un-American Activities Committee last year. Nixon had more of a hand than any other member in developing the Hiss-Ohambers case and steering It throug.i a series of spectacular hearing*. Velde. a newcomer to the committee this year, followed up with a statement saying Judge Kaufman showed "a marked bias for the rle- leroe that, to say the least, bordered on judicial misconduct."
