The subcommittee will resume hearings in January, when Congress reconvenes, to hear testimony from numerous hnr associations, unions and others. Scott said in an interview that testimony so far convinced him "there appears to be a need for at least the enunciation of a declaration of principles."

Scott said, is "reckless body-b 1 o w procedure" by which witnesses involve third persons in testifying on such ticklish subjects as communism. Another, said Kep. Howard W. Smith (D-Vat, is "just plain badgering of witnesses" by the congressmen. Rep. Doyle (D-Calif), a member of the House Un-American Activities Committee, recommended putting tighter restraints on the public statements of commHXee members and giving; witnesses somewhat more leeway to explain their positions.
