MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8,1954 BIA'THEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Aggressive Politician McCarthy May Have to Change His Style By JAMES MAHLOtV WASHINGTON (API — Sen. .McCarthy fights like Henry Armystrong, the perpetual mo- lion man who won three world titles in the 1930s with this stock-in-trade: never step back, punch, punch, and forget the fancy footwork. Even the Wisconsin Republican's enemies must concede he is one of the most aggressive politicians of (lie 20lh century. But he has readied a point where lie may have to change his style or wind up flat on his political back. It was his style that got him into trouble. His problem is: Can he change it? He made his reputation as ft Communist hunter. His record as H lawmaker is not particularly distinguished. He was a comparative unknown, outside Wisconsin, for the first four years after his election to the Senate in 1946. When he hit on the theme of Reds-in-government in 1950, he be- san to slug his way out ol oblivion., lightweights and welterweights. If he had cooled off after his first •""few sensational charges he might have slipped back into obscure status. Instead, he kept his mime in ihe headlines by attack, attack, attack. (Armstrong didn't back-pedal when the going got rough. He just belted the other guy. It was how he became king of the featherweights. GETTING.

Main Ph. 3-1585 McCarthy became a national figure the same way. Trying to corner him didn't slow him up. He kept moving in, belting away, throwing charges from all directions. Too Hough As it turned out, he was a UUle too rough for his own good. The Senate, four years after he had become a sensational figure, decided H was time to see whether he needed a dressing down. He himself predicts he will be censured by the Senate, returning today to consider charges that his conduct toward others, including senators, was contemptuous and unfitting a senator. McCarthy refers to what lies store for him as "lynching bee", which, all by itself, might be considered contemptuous of the Senate since it implies that body is a mob of vigilantes. But it's .typical McCarthy. Here h- is, in trie worst jam of his life, belting at'a majority-of the Senate even though he knows the verdict of that majority may in the end mean the ruin of his political life. To be censured Is, in a sense, to be discredited. It is the same as -calling a foul on a fighter. It would mean his fellows thought he didn't meet the standards of what a senator should be. Next to throwing him out altogether, a vote of censure is the worst verdict the Senate could render against him. Throwing him out doesn't seem in the cards, McCarthy could still vote, if censured. He wouldn't lose his seat, at least before the 1958 elections when his second term ends. No Backdown Another man, censured, might be so humiliated he'd turn meek forever. That's hardly in McCarthy's nature. He's naturally too aggressive to take a setback as permanent. In fact, he could hardly afford to go back into oblivion again unless he's willing to let his political career end withou* a further fight He has no place to go but forward. But how is he going forward? How is he going to stay in the headlines? By the same tactics that got him into trouble now? The next time the Senate verdict, with the Democrats in control, might be more drastic. But if his free-swinging style it> cramped — if he has to think of the consequences for himself every time he wants to act or speak in the future — will he be the same McCarthy? It's something he has to think about. It's possible he may not be able to change, that he's too much himself for that. But that he'll fight somehow, to keep himself a national figure seems certain. If he loses that, he loses everything. He's probably already lost some of his following, and much public interest. Reports from the polities' fronts in the last campaign said he wasn't much of an issue.
