I'AC.E Z—XAUGATUCK NKWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, DKC. !), KM!) DREW PEARSON ON "fhe WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Pastor on Trial Drew Pearson Says: Parnell Thomas Inspired Pity In The Courtroom ; Sending A Man To Jail Is Not Any Fun ; Congressmen, However, Owe It To The Country To Be Honest And Aboveboard. (Ed. Note— Drew Pearson's column today takes tho form of ;\ letter to his daughter. Mr.t. Goon; a 1-^ Arnold of !.*>« An^ftleB.) Washington, D. t\ 1 Dec. 6, 134t» The other day 1 went down to the trial of Congressman J. Parne.l I Thomas and sat In the courtroom *vhllo the jury wa« being picked He was there making a show of being unconcerned and confident, but somehow or other I felt *or.-y tor him. 1 fslt KimoBl sorry that 1 had brouRht out all the stuff about Jus klckbacha. Thomas wan a lot different In fhe ^courtroom than whon ho blustered over wltn<!»*o» In hl« own Un-American Activities Committee. He had sent a dozen or so wltnes*cg to Jail himself * chiefly tor refusal to answer questions. And he had denied them the rlsht of counsel and had hauled them before hi» committee from as far siway as California at any time of the day or week that suited him. In conlra«t he now enjoyed (ill the carefully built-up American privileges of a free trial. He wru represented by n good lawyer. He Hut before a K°»d judge. Ju'tj,"; Holtzoff. who was very fair. And he had the right to exclude certain jurors — though a witness bcfo-.-o hln committee had no right to exclude any committee members. Furthermore, the Justice Department had given Thomas one ycn>-'s delay in his trial, and had «nnl iiim to an Army hospital at government expense to get his healtu completely restored. So perhaps I shouldn't have foil. sorry. But nevertheless, a* he rat there, one little guy in the crowded, courtroom facing certain convln- 1lon. 1 did. After all, there Ian t «ny fun in sending a man to jail Morality Between Wun» In retrospect, however, there tiro n. lot more Important con»l<Jwi- tions In our lives and In our nallu-i than pity and the discomfiture of i. no man.

Nor IB the:- finy excune for putting n ch.u- woman and n ijlrl who nover cum. near the office on the Brcrolnr'.n payroll and then pocketing th money. K.'H had enough putting i^ wife', a daughter-in-law and a bed- udilcn aunt on tho payroll. t cun sympathize with thp prnh- H-m of our public servnntB In mailing Nome extra money, but. (hoi-fl are other wnyit of malting It. , remember when William'Jcnnlug* bryan was Secretary of Stalo, you grandfather Peni-Hon invited him to speak on the Swarthmorc Chn.i- laurtutiH which wcru then in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania not far from Wnnhlngton. Bryan, nt>Jl a wealthy man, accepted, and filled about 20 iipenk- Ing cngjigoments at $2. r >0 each. Your father was a tent crow boy at the Umo and used to carry water for 'the gront commoner." I remcim- br.r that for most lecturers, I onl>- f.upplled a bucket and dipper, but for Bryan I borrowed a glnra pitcher. Well, the Republican newspapers let out a terrific howl —not about the bucket and dipper but ab<>-'t the Secretary of State nppcnrln.j on the same platform with Tyrj 1 - ean Alpine-yodelcm. which waH not exactly true. However, I still think It was a good Idea for the-smaller towns of the U.S.A., which seldom snc a Secretary of State In pcrxnn, to learn about our foreign affairs from the man who runs them And compared with tho Icctur- of today. Bryan's $250 a lecture WUH chicken feed. In fact, Ptirnell Thomas u«ecl to collect, much more than this himself' RS a lecturer; and. n.q chairman of the Un-American Activities Commit too he was In big demand- -a porfncMy legitimate way to increase his Income. Must C'onKTcKHmen Don't Chi-nt Contrary to gene-ral fe-o.Hslp. I don't think that there are m.-.ny conprressmon who resort to Par. nell Thoma.i'H cheap and tawdry way of making money. I pride myself on knowing- Congress pretty well, and T am convinced that. I hi: t majority of both IIOUHCH are honeHt, sincer-o rind have the. v/el- lare of their country very much at heart. They recognize that the money allotted them for sccroturlal help comes not from their own pockets but from the taxpayer, and that, it him to be npcnl ;i« a public (runt. When you look around the world today. I here are not many democratic legislative bodies left. Cm <i is one of the few. And sometimes we forget that the right of the people to govern themselves is something your great-grandfathers) have been fighting for ever ninco the -1700'ti, and we've got. to preHeive the Integrity of what they won. Congress Is merely the medium by whioh people cxcrclHc the rinht to govern theniHclves. Some day I vxant it to be governing for. with ;.nd by my grandson, and In the Interim I don't want a Parnoll Thomas or nnyone else to destroy it!- good name. From the Old Man.
