THURSDAY, MAY 8, 1947 Hot Words Mark inquiry !nto RFC Senate's Banking Committee Delays B. & O. Investigation WASHINGTON. Mny 7. <UP> — 'flip Senate Banking Committee's investigation of RFC was put on !W_jt ln P<>rarlly yesterday lollow- »i<; 4Bme hot words between Chairman Charles W. Tobcy, n., N. U., ami Sen Homer E. caycharl, R, IiHI. Tobey said he plans to re-o;>en hearings in two weeks on the Re- coiisiriicilon Finance Corporation's iinilti-niillion-dolliir dealings with the Baltimore fc Ohio railroad. The neess will give committee members a chance to attend Senate debate on important legislation. Tobey said. Some senators said privately, meanwhile, that the Investigation to date has been "nothing more than a witch-hunt." They complained that they never knew in advance who was going to testify. The main issue in the inquiry concerns the B & O's 1045 bankruptcy and subsequent reorganization, whereby an $80,000,000 RFC loan was extended to 1905. Committee" Consel Robert D. L'Heureux charges it was a fictitious" bankruptcy, arranged to keep former RFC officials in control at B & O. Railroad officers deny that the B & o had been a party to any "fradnlent or improper" act. Sen. John Sparkmnn, D.. Ala., banking committee member, told a reporter that in his position "no case has yet been made out" a- fininst either B & p or RFC. He said "not. a single witness has les- liiied that anybody lost anything" as a result of the reorganization. ^L _ Commons Near Final Vote on Conscription LONDON. May 8.
