Congressmen Accuse Officials Of 'Mean, Lousy, Dirty 1 Tricks WASHINGTON, July 5. . (UP) — Congressmen today trotted out their bitterest words to denounce federal officials for recording :clephone conversations with senators and representatives. One repieseiHallvc said it was "a mean, lousy, dirty trick," Another said it was "contemptible." An Inquiry into tlic recording practices was being considered by the house committee to Investigate unauthorized acls of executive agencies. One committee member said some federal departments probably have "thousands" of recordings of telephone conversations with congressmen. .Some of the most biting comments came from congressmen who did not waul to 1» quoted—they wanted their words recorded neither in print nor on wax. Their blood began boiling after Frank W. Hcnwlck, Jr., former head of the legal division of the Army's Chicago ordnance district, read to tile Senate War Investigating Col mlttce what he said was the transcript of n, telephone conversation between Maj. L. H. Campbell, Jr., and Hep. Andrew J. May, D,, Ky. May, chairman of the House Mlll- Inry Alfalrs Committee, was quoted as asking Campbell, chief of Army ordnance, to "cooperate" by giving "equal chances" on contracts to representatives of the Elgin, 111., Erie Basin Metal Products Co., Inc. ' Koine House members declared (lint recording their telephone conversations with department executives was practiced generally by certain departments. They also protested thai they were not notlllrd oul of courtesy that the conversations were being recorded. Speaker Sam Hayburn cxpressoi greal displeasure at sucn activities am' House Republican Leader Joseph W. Martin Jr., said, "It's mean practice." Referring to the fact that G-men may not tap wires to obtain evidence, Martin said: "I don't know why the bureau- crats should have more power on the telephone than the FUi." Some time ago Rep. Sam Hobbs, D., Ala., Introduced legislation to permit evidence from wire-tapping in cases of sabotage, espionage, kidnapping and extortion, but the bill was not passed. | One high-ranking House member said that hereafter he would re- to talk on the telephone to department officials. "II anybody downtown calls me up, I'll tell them to come up here," he said. Tlic five largest cities in Arkansas arc Little Hock, Forl ijmlth, Hot Springs, North Little Rock and Pine Bluff.
