Truman's 'New Broom Planning In Final Stage Hta ProMcutor Set For Key Rol« In President's Program WASHINGTON. Deo. 15. (ff) _ President Truman,- who said nine month* ago his administration was made up of honorable men, puts the finishing touches to R new broom program of sweeping out officials who have betrayed his trust. Announcement of the detailed program was expected by today •Ittioufh there may b« some delay. Whenever it comes, It appeared certain that strapping Federal Judge Thomas F. Murphy of New York, famed as the prosecutor of Alger Hiss and as a police rackets buster, would be offered a key role. The generously mustached Murphy had an unpubllclzed appointment with Mr. Truman yesterday but a snowstorm prevented hU flying here. The latest unofficial word was that he would see the President today or Monday. In New York, Murphy said a report that he had agreed to serve on an anti-corruption commission was "a million miles from the truth." He would not comment on when he would see Mr. Truman. Indications are multiplying that. barring a last minute change, the President's program will take the form of setting up an Independent body with power to Investigate and perhaps to prosecute. One of Its Jobs definitely will be to clear the names of government officials— Mr. Truman says they torm the great majority—who nre honest and who tend to their Jobs.
