Official Meddled With Grand Jury WASHINGTON UP) — House investigators Thursday received a sworn statement from Federal Judge George H. Moore that the Justice Department interfered with a grand jury investigation of tax scandals at St Louis last year. Moore quoted the late Drake Watson, the U. S. attorney at the time, as saying that Ellis N. Slack, then a Justice Department tax attorney, "wanted" the partial report the grand jury returned. That report gave the tax collector's office a clean bill of health and has since been termed a "whitewash" by one of the jurors. After hearing the committee counsel read the statement, Slack said: j "I deny that I ever told Drake Watson that I had talked to thei judge and that he wanted a partial report made." Moore had quoted Watson as saying Slack told him that. At that point the committee recessed is hearings. Market Report KANSAS CITY Ufl — (USDA)— Cattle 500; calves 100; slow.
