PAGE TEN BkTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER Raw. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18,1988 Arkonsos in Washington; Mills and McClellan Set The Records Straight By GORDON BKOWN WAWTNOTON fAP) — Two Arkansas members of Congress have set the record straight in the past few days and one of them - Sen. McClellan - has drawn some abject aP ° l0 The other Arkansan Rep. Wilbur Mills, didn't get an apology but he drew from the Secretary of the Treasury an admission that Mills had been right in his criticism of a loophole in last year's Republican tax revison law. Mills put it this way: "Secretary Humphrey had to eat crow—without any salt." The episode involving McClellan began Feb. 27 with publication in the Cincinnati Enquirer of an article criticizing McClellan in connection with the appearance of Harvey Matusow before a Senate the self-admitted Committee. Matusow is former communist who said in a recent book that he lied in testimony accusing other persons of communist connections. The article said the hearing was a "remarkable exhibit of irresponsibility," criticized McClellan severely and wound up by saying that "McClellan's great book promotion . . .has aided the communists." Headed by EasUand Actually, McClellan had virtually nothing to do with the Matusow sessions. The hearing wasn't conducted by hK Investigations subcommittee but by the internal security subcommittee, headed by Sen. Ei' 'and (D-Mlss). McClellan is a member of th latter committee but took little part in the hearing. McClellan took the Senate floor early in the week to air the episode. He included a letter of apology to him from the author of the article, James Ratliff. He also received an apology from Sen. DIrksen (R-I11). This was because Dlrksen had inserted a copy of the original article in the Congressional Record. Dirksen, in his apology, told McClellan he, had merely glanced at the heading: of the article, hadn't read it and didn't know it Was a critical attack oo a fellow senator. McClellan graciously accepted Dirksen's explanation as he did the correction and apology made by Ratliff. "I may say I appreciate the extent to which the newspaper and tile author of the article, who is vice president of that publication, have gone in trying to rectify this wrong," McClellan told the Semite. Mills did his record correcting at a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee, of which he is a member. This story also had Its start several weeks ago when Mills contended publicly that the new tax law had a loophole that provided revenue because of it. Mills referred to a revision permitting businesses to set up deductible reserves for anticipated expenses. At the time Secretary Humphrey said Mills was greatly exaggerat- But the other day he came before the committee i d requested that the loophole be closed. He said that at the time Mills made his original statement his staff was at work on the matter although he personally wasn't informed of it. As to the actual loss, he said it could be large. It was a matter of satisfaction to Mills who also argues there are considerable weight. It includes Majority Leader McCormick (D) and Minority Leader Martin (R) as well as a couple of members on the appropriations committee. McClellan and Norrell also are seeking to interest the Veterans Administration in taking over the hospital. correction. Arkansas rice featured in the House dining room yesterday. Since it was national rice week, Rep. Gathings (D-Ark) suggested that Arkansas rice millers send up some rice. They accepted the idea. Of course, this has nothing to do with the fact that the rice states, including Arkansas, want Congress to hike the rice acreage allotment three percent this year. Gathings. incidentally, sent individual packages of Arkansas rice to members of the House Agriculture Committee. This rice was provided by J. T. White, Jones- Defense Mobiiizer Arthur Flem- and I'fome Finance Agency a request by Sen. Pulbright (D-Arkl that the area around the new Jacksonville air base be designated a critical defense housing area. Pulbright made tl request in hope of facilitating construction of defense housing. Flemming said it was up to the Housing and Home Finance Agency to survey the matter and make a recommendation. Rep. W. F. Nnrrell (D-Ark) says it's quite hopeful over prospects of keeping the Army-Navy hospital at. Hot Springs in operation one way or another after July 1, the date set ''y the Army for closing it as an economy move. Norrell hopes to persuade the House Appropriations Committee, of which he is a member, to. vote funds for continued operation of Army-Navy and also Murphy Gen- Stare Police Report 404 Speeding Arrests LITTLE ROCK Wl — State police arrested and obtained convictions on 404 speeders during February State Police Director Herman Lind sey said yesterday in his monthly report.

Wylie said that Caldwell stopped speaking and remarked: "I see my good friend Mr. Wylie taking notes ..." Wylie said that he told the group that he would like to print the speech if it were not a closed meeting. Caldwell Replies Caldwell retorted that he hadn't "ht*l much luck with newspapers that condsensed 45-minute speeches into two paragraphs." Wylie said that he offered to write a story and submit it to the group before running it. Caldwell then made the remark, Wylie said, that newspapermen do not like to have their stories edited by other people. Wylie said the matter was discussed briefly by the church women present.
