t AGE TWO BI.YTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JULY 18, 198B Boycott of McCarthy Probers By GOP Members Held Likely NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Herald Tribune said today it was reported in Wash ineton that there is a plan for one or more Republican members to boycott the McCarthy nrobe subcommittee "until a formula is found to make it bipartisan again." probe subcommittee The three Democratic members of the Senate permanent Invest gallons subcommittee headel by Sei Joseph R. McCarthy (R-WisJ n signed Friday. A Washington dispatch to th Herald Tribune by Don Irwin sal the boycott "strategy, known to hav been discussed with the top Re publican leadership, comes us aftermath" of Friday's resignations The Democratic subcommilte members, the story noted, quit aft tr they were denied a voice, in th hiring and dismissal of staff mem bers, following the resignation of J B. Matthews us stall director. In Washington, Sen. Charles E Potter tR-Mich.l, the only membe. at the. subcommittee who c o u 11 be reached for comment on the newspaper story, said he knew noth ing about a boycott. Sets. Responsibility The Irwin dispatch said the Democratic resignations left the Republican party "wholly responsible for the activities of the Senate's most controversial Investigative body.' The story added that the Democratic party "shared technical responsibility" for the subcommittee's activities while the Democrats were members of the group — "although the chairman was by far the most active member." The story also said: Many responsible Republicans are known to feel that. In view of the delicate and controversial nature of the subcommittee's work, restoration of bipartisanship is essential. Since a quorum of the sevven- place subcommittee is four members, it would appear that absence of even one remaining member would raise at least a legal question regarding any decisions the probe group may'make before it is brought up to strength. In any event, nonappearance of the remaining members would place the chairman in the position of acting as a "one-man subcommittee," plainly without support of his col- j jeagues. The boycott device is planned to have the. effect, of a brake on new ventures pending development of a formula to bring Democrats back Into the group.

LAUNDRY IS HOT WORK So why (in it? Especially during the summer months when toiling over your family wash takes so much out of you! Declare your independence from wash-day drudgery for the hot weather months. Then, at summer's end, figure out how little it has cost you lo lei us do your laundry. You'll never go back to tha^ tedious washing job] LAUNDRY. CLEANERS plus a few dollars more To assure you a dependable water supply through the year* which lie ahead, large sums must be spent within the next decade. Engineers who have been appraising our national needs figure that the bill will run over three billion dollars for the country as a whole. And that's just for physical equipment and installations — that's just tor the things which make up a water supply system. What about the men who make these things function? How much should we pay for their knowledge, their experience and, above all, their unceasing vigilance? Everything about a water works involves big money except the remuneration of the men responsible for its dependable operation. Perhaps no other enterprise in America puts more solemn responsibilities upon men and pays them less for accepting them. Our people have been fortunate that so many able and conscientious men have been willing to accept these responsibilities in the face of the low financial rewards their services command. But their numbers grow fewer as the cost of living mounts. Already, water systems are finding it difficult to enroll and hold on to younger men qualified fo [-advancement to key executive jobs. The Will to serve is there but it withers in the face of a dollar that has lost almost half its purchasing power in the course of a decade. Satisfaction in discharging a great public responsibility with honor unfortunately doesn't heat the house or clothe the children or buy food for the table. If billions of dollars must be spent on plant facilities, it becomes all the more important that the men who direct these purchases and operate these facilities shall be of the highest character and ability. Can we afford not to invest thousands in human intelligence and integrity? We need to spend a few dollars more, Blytheville Water Co.
