"We Fl'.ould go in all directions In the Investigation and disclosure of the ramifications of organized crime. "There are too many rats in the meal of democracy—and they must be driven out."

Its other members are Senators O'Conor (D-Md). Hunt (D-Wyo) and Wiley <R-Wts>. Referring to Tobey's suggestion, Kefativer said: "As far as I'ni concerned, the idea Is sound." Tobey was a member of a Sendie Commerce subcommittee which recently questioned Erickson and Coslello 'during hearings on a measure aimed at curbing big time gambling. The New Hampshire Senator said Erickson at that lime gave the committee - "contradictory and evasive testimony." while Costello's account of his activities differed from one he had once given to a New York grand jury. "If perjury Is the only crime on which such characters can be nailed," Tobey said, "let us start with that."
