WEDNESDAY, JAN. 7, 1953 Ike's Cabinet Approval Hits Democratic Snag By JACK BELL WASHINGTON W1 — President- fleet Elsenhower has suggested inauguration day confirmation by the Senate of his Cabinet but Democrats are balking; at such rapid- fire action. Sen. Taft at Ohio, the Republican leader, confirmed that a move Is under way to gain Senate approval without any committee investigation of the Cabinet nominees. But the Ohloan told this reporter he fears the Democrats may raise objections or resort to lengthy talk which would ball up the inaugural day schedule, so far as the Senate !s concerned. In this connection, Sen. Byrd (D-Va), who helped Eisenhower in the election campaign by saying he couldn't support' the Democratic ticket, said in a separate Interview he believes it would be unwise to confirm even Cabinet officials without committee inquiries. "I think committees'should have the right to question these appointees In closed hearings," Byrd snid. Byrd added that, among- olher things, he wants to know what business holdings have been retained by prospective appointees whose departments would award defense and other contracts. -He noted (hat in at least one Instance, the Senate Armed Ser\ ices Committee had required Lout Johnson, a Truman Cabinet nom nee, to sign a statement that h would not participate in the profit of his law firm while in office o accept any accrued profits after h left the Cabinet. There is no present doubt lha all of Eisenhower's Cabinet choice will be confirmed by tho Senate and within a matter of days afte their nominations have been form ally submitted. In making their request for In augnration day action, the Fre> dent-elect's lieutenants have cite the Senate's unanimous approval o President Roosevelt's appointee on (he day he look office In 1933 They were said to feel quic Senate approval would get tin Eisenhower administration off to speedy start. But one GOP sena tor, who asked not to be named said he had been (old that — a much as anything—the appointee want to go to the Jan. 20 Inaugurn Ball in possession of their officia titles. Under Senate rules, presidents appointments ordinarily aren't act ed upon until at least a day fol lowing- their submission. This nil can be avoided, but no one coulc keep the Democrats from tal in the Senate if they chose. Prosecution Rests in Murder Trial of General's Daughter By WILLIAM C.
