The committee's final re- 'port is still not completed: it is scheduled to be issued on July 11. But the Senate resolution creating the committee-formally, the Senate select committee on presidential Campaign Activities--will expire today, after having been extended several times. Already, the staff, which once numbered almost 100, has dwindled to about 30. The .-committee itself--four Democrats and three Republicans- held a semifinal meeting last Thursday, with a last cere- .monial gathering scheduled for early next July. All the evidence has been gathered and collated and now reposes in dozens of file cabinets and safes. The focus of the Watergate controversy has long since , shifted from the Senate committee to the House Judiciary Committee, which is considering impeachment, and to the Watergate special prosecutor, whose office is' pursuing 1 alleged malefactors in the case. · ;But for the relatively brief m o m e n t -- f r o m May 17 to -Aug. 7.1973--the committee's activities seized public atten- ,-tion, Its nationally televised "hearings earned a place in history alongside such earlier Capitol Hill spectacles as the Army-McCarthy hearings. Sen. Estes Kefauver's investigations of organized crime, the Pecora hearings on the se- .curities industry and the House Un-American Activities Committee's probes into alleged domestic subversion. The seven committee members became national figures. Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N. C. the chairman, captured public fancy with his swooping eyebrows, his Biblical homilies and his frequently gnarled syntax. "There has been murder and. larceny in every generation." said Ervin to one witness, "but that hasn't made murder meritorious or larceny legal." SOON THE COUNTRY was awash in Uncle Sam T-shirts, a Sam Ervin record album was riding high on the charts and a new biography was in the works. . The others won their share of attention: Howard H. Baker Jr.. R-Tenn.. constantly probing for explanations of motive: Edward J. Gurney, R-Fla., the White House's staunches! defender: Herman E. Talmadge. D-Ga.. needling witnesses in his cornpone accent: Daniel K. Inouye. D-Hawaii. who startled the country by mumbling into an open microphone. "What a liar!" After quizzing John D. Ehrlichman; Lowell P. Weicker Jr.. R-Conn.. the committee's expert in moral outrage; and Joseph M. Montoya. D-N. M.. of whom it was often said that he listened only to questions, not answers. Clay High Plans 10-Year Reunion The 1964 graduating class of Clay High School will have its 10-year reunion Saturday from 1 until 4 p.m. at the high school cafeteria. Short programs are scheduler] and prizes will be award- WASHLNGTON Equal EmjpJwoieat Opportna- ity Ccoiaussioa figures cast doubt Saturday on the effectiveness of government and laboiVjpf forts to increase minority emplovmeat in the construction industry. The EEOC reported a slight increase in membership of blacks and other minorities in the building trades unions during a three-year period between 1969 and 1972. But it said there was no significant advancement of minority membership in the better paying, higher skilled union categories. Citug reports filed by 2,615 local unions, the EEOC said minority membership rose by about 52,t* to a total of 251,799 during the three years. In 1972, minorities accounted for 15.6 per cent of the 1.6 million members, compared with 13.2 per cent of the reported 1.5 million members in 1969. Blacks accounted for 8.3 per cent of the members in 1972; Spanish-surnamed Americans, 6 percent; Asian Americans, four-tenths of one per cent: and American Indians, nine-tenths of 1 per cent. Unions with 100 or more members are required to report annually to the EEOC. The statistics were the latest available. The EEOC said minority membership in the higher paying mechanical trades, such as boilermakers, electrical workers, elevator constructors, iron workers. seven-tenths of 1 per cent from 1*» to W per eeet. In the lowest paving building trade group, primarily the laborers, painters and roofers, minority group membership was 37.6 per ceat. against 31.8 per cent in 1969. « * » THE EEOC report was issued without comment. In an effort to increase minority employment in construction, so-called voluntary affirmative action plans involving labor and management have been implemented in about 60 cities. In addition, mandatory hiring plans establishing goals and timetables for hiring blacks and other minorities on federally assisted projects have been imposed in several major cities, including Chicago, Washington, Atlanta, Philadelphia. St. Louis and San Francisco. The NAACP has in the past charged that these plans would do nothing to alter what it calls "the racist pattern" in the building and construction trades. The civil rights organization has called instead for imposition of court orders to enforce goals and timetables for hiring minorities.
