II TEN. Dictatorship Fear Voiced Republican Urges Amendment to Limit Tenure of Presidents WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. (UP) — R*p. Ellsworth B. Buck, R., N. Y., slid today that there Is n very real -calculated risk" of dictatorship in pOTnltting a president lo serve more that two fpur yenr terms. Rep. John w. McCormack, D., Mass., replied that there was a calculated risk in everything. Ho said he was willing to let the people decide if individual presidents should serve more than two terms. The exchange occurred In House Judiciary Subcommittee hearings on proposals to limit the presidential tenure. The Republican leadership, which is backing a two-term limitation, had hoped to tring the issue to a Mouse vote on Thursday. But it seemed likely to be delayed until next week. Buck said that other "democracy loving people even as we are" have had dictatorships foisted off on them. Then he recalled that President Roosevelt In 1937 had urged the House Ways and Means committee not io let the question on constitutionality 1 interfere with their consideration of the Golfey coal act. "Above all calculated risks is the calculated risk of having a dictatorship—which already has been established," Buck said. "I think it's a very real risk." If both the House and Senate approve a proposed constitutional amendment—the only way presidential tenure can. be limited—it stil! would need the approval of three-fourths of the states. They would have seven years to act. The subcommittee opened hearings In the face of a demand by two House Democrats that Congress also unscramble its presidential succession laws. pthe>wise, they said, the federal government someday may find itself in a position "more chaotic" than Georgia's governorship snarl.
