APRIL 29, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURTEP PAGE SEVEN End of Long Tidelands Sessions Brings Joy To Senate Reporters By ERNEST B. VACCARO WASHINGTON (AP) — The folks who take down everything said in debate on the floor of the Senate were just about the happiest people In Washington today. The agreement to vote next | He must, of all things, be familiar Tuesday on the submerged lands bill, bringing an end to night Senate sessions and the most talk many of them ever listened to, was like a Christmas present In April. And, just as Important, recognition was coming in. Vice President Nixon, for instance, called the official Senate reporters "the unsung heroes o{ the recent filibuster." "I don't know how you stood It," he said. Along with his note was a box of California fruit, including avo- tangerines, with the cados and suggest'on: "Maybe some of this good California fruit will help restore your health." Earlier, there was a basket of candy and fruit from Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore), who nearly exhausted the eight shorthand experts and five typists, if not himself, when he set a record last week by talking 22 hours and 26 minutes in opposition to the bill. The men who take down Senate debate are no run-of-the-mill stenographers, as John D. Rhodes and James W. Murphy, under whom they work, will testify. Murphy, who's been an official reporter 60 years, and Rhodes, who came to work at the Senate In 1919, are both lawyers by training, and all their men have been through the grind of trial reporting. "We have to select our men very carefully," Bhodes explained. "And it takes a couple of years lor a man to get to where he faels at ease on these jobs. "We never take anyone who hasn't been an official reporter of trials and other court proceedings. with legal language so often used by senators, most of whom are lawyers." The reporters work in relays. A man stays on the floor 10 minutes at a time. His book full of shorthand notes, he returns to the workroom and dictates to a recording device all that he has taken down. The typists take over and return the typewritten transcript to the reporter, who then reads copy on it, and gets it Into order for sending to the Government Printing Office, which prints the Congressional Record. Friday, when Morse spoke all night, the reporters worked all night, keeping up the relays. Overtime pay? There's no such thing. They are paid a yearly salary. Rhodes wouldn't say how much. Red Influenced POWs Need Mental Care WASHINGTON (#>)—The Defense Department has decided that U. soldiers instilled with communism by Red techniques while held prisoner need mental treatment. It is therefore flying a "sinal group" of these men, returned under the prisoner exchange agreement, to an Army hospital for "special consideration as well as medica treatment in their preparation for return to society." The men, "who have shown symptoms of having succumbed to Communist indoctrination while the; were held captive in North Korea, 1 are en route from Tokyo td the big Valley Forge Army Hospital near Philadelphia, the department said in an announcement last night. Top-level discussion among Pentagon officials and between them and other government agencies were held before it was determined a formal, public announcementt woulc be made that "psychical" as wel. as medical treatment would be given the group. The announcement continued no indication of how long the men involved might require treatment. It said families of the soldiers would be notified immediately upon their arrival and would be "encouraged to visit them."

Hershey, selective service director, and State Department security officials today for hearings on department personnel practices.
