W) — [ 1 Republican Senate leaders.have de- 'jjdecided to come out fighting against '.pi Democratic mo*e to shift a crime ^investigation Into the hands of a "ilve-man special committee. }','The OOP Policy Committee iireached this decision lite jesterday i'jat'a conference which boomed the ' J )mea[igatlon into a major political I Issue. !i Senator Taft (R-Ohlo) made It 'clear the Republicans are suspicious 3lfof the Democrats' motives in pro, Ipbslng that the crime inquiry be taken from the Judiciary committee. f He said the move apparently >i'as •made to keep two Republicans off "Hhe committee "who know most 7»boul It and are most interested In JJlt" He was referring to Senators nFerguson of Michigan and Donnell ^bf Missouri, : both judiciary commit- Stee members. y Political Propacanda ^ - But Democratic Leader Lucn.s of frIllinois retorted "that's Just political •j propaganda/' He* declared no one ; was trying to bar anyone from com- Lmlttee membership. , fi Lueu Insisted the special commlt- ,; tee was proposed as a sensible means ij6f merging separate investigations i by the Judiciary »nd commerce ;« committees '* The OOP decision made It cer- S.taln there will be a fight when :,'resolution Is offered to set up the c five-man group £. Some Republicans want the Invest: tigatlon to Include the outbreak of 1= violence 'a'nd: vote fraud charges .iri J Kansas City. Senator Kem (R-Mo) "called on'President Truman yester- j»day to break;up what he termed "an I Ainholy, alliance" between politics £ mnd crime In Kansas City. ',' ReWtaUoB Drifted s Senator Kefauver, (D-Tcnn), who V probably will direct the crime In- ij vestigatlon, has drafted a resolu- J tlon to aet up the special commit- J •«. He plans to bring It before the !* Senate tomorrow if possible £ "The resolution was not conceived Eon political lines," Kefauver told a 1: reporter, "and It won't be carried I out as a political matter. There is rtno Intention to damage or to aid jelttwr.pmrty." 5j Kefauver has Mid as far as he fife concerned there are a number '•of cities including Kansas city J,wher« investigations should be made gas soon as posslbls. g K«f»\i«r said, his resolution ? would auHwrlae Vlc« President aB«rHey to select the committee J membership and would authorize pthe taTM«gating group . to spend t»lJ«,OOe tat its Inquiry. P , C«ra«t* JM . Broad' ,.. TiM'-resolution is-broad enough, r h» said, to cover the operation of J'criras syndicates In interstat* com- f mere« : and what "corrupting influ- i:«n«s" 'they might have on local *ilaw tntorcement agencies. * J, Luc«s has said that Barkley JprobaHy would choose the two Re- E publican • members on Jhe basts of J.their -eommltt** * seniority This Jwotild .give the posts to Senators •iWiley-of Wisconsin and Tobey of fNew Hampshire. ", Th« i Bepublicans don't like the .-.power of appointment being placed feiri Barkley's hands. Taft said the gOOP senators take a dim view of £"the growing tendency on the part ?,of the Democratic leadership to try «?to select Republican members of J committees." = Lucas replied 11.seemed strange ,%to him that Taft.and the other ^Republican leaders "should Imply ?:that Wiley and Tobey aren't capa- rble of carrylngf on a proper Investl- P gation."
