OF.BEIHCETHLJ ON m m Gillette Is Fed Up; Resents Revenue Suggestion As His Motive BY BRUCE CATTON Watitimgon Cormpondenl WASHINGTON, July 21 -When Senator p..y Gillette of Iowa heatedly denied that his vote against the administration's neutrality program was motivated by any resentment at the President's unsuccessful attempt to "purge" him In tost summer's primary, he earned tie right lo have his statement laken ai face value.' ' Foi, if the senator really wanted to get even with the administration, he could have done It 1,, „ much more spectacular way than that. During (his session he was given a chance to fire a shotgun right into the middle of the President's cabinet—anil he refused lo lake it. • What makes Ihis affair even re convincing is the fad that hardly anybody knows about it ; »is Hiu, GAVE HIM OPPORTUNITY Early in Hie session Senator Gillette introduced a bill to set higher margin requirements for trading in grain futures. What he really wanted wa's an investigation of the whole subject cf grain futures trading and its effect on domestic farm prices; . introduction of this bill offered' a way lo gel it. . He got a good deal of support from various farm organization leaders here, and his bill was referred for hearings to a subcommittee of the Senate Agricultural Committee,' This subcommittee was headed by Senator Billow 3f South Dakota and included Senator. Gillette and Senator Morris. Since' Norris was busy on other matters, .the hearings have >een conducted almost entirely by Bulow and Gillette; and since the bill is Gillette's bill, by senatorial custom he has, to all intents and purposes, liacl control of the.hear- . Now, In the group which wanted this Investigation of grain' futures trading there was a sub-group, so to speak, which wanted to drive Henry Wallace out of his lob as secretary of agriculture. ' These people had drawn up a bill of particulars, accusing Wallace of refusing lo enforce ihc grain futures leading act and asserting lhat his refusal to accept the "cosl of production plan for agriculture was because" he was unduly friendly wilh Hie grain speculators. They wanted n sounding board for (heir charges. The subcommittee hearings on Gillette's bill looked like a handy one. rr u le y could spread thc-fr detailed charges on the committee record • they could get a lot of publicity t or them, in the end, they probably would fail to get Wallace out of office, but Ihey would at least create a tremendous lot of trouble for him and for the administration WOULD HAVE BEEN EASY Gillette's part In all of this would have been simple. He wouldn't liave hail to -turn a hand himself. All he would need to do would be to let these people have their way at the hearings. If revenge for the "purge" was what he \vas after, here was a fool-proof chance lo get Strand lo get it without even seeming lo be seeking it. ' "Well, he didn'l do it. The hearings have been going oil, and they have created not a ripple. Somehow the attack on the secretary; with its indications that the ad- ininlsliatyn's whole farm )»llcy f «"Kl, hasn't teen taking Senator oilletlc is going 'to find out all he tail about grain futures trading, but he isn't goln« to let his investigation be turned into an attack on the administration Just incidentally, Senator Gillette is getting a bit tired .ot hearing about the "purge." When he votes with the administration— as he: did on the monetary bill— he gets letters accusing him of crawling; when lie votes against it— as he did on the neutrality bill— he is accused of harboring a- grudge. Meanwhile, you might just re-member that when a real chance lo put a knife into the administration' was offered lo him - he turned it down— and did it so quietly that hardly anybody here has even heard of it.
