"Public confidence in the government will be strengthened." .':.iid Sen. Herbert Lehman (D-Lib- NV). Morris, a self-styled "Abraham Lincoln Republican" who was president of the New York City Council under the late Mayor P. H. La- Ouardia. seemed to share Taft's sentiments in part at least. Although crediting Truman with "enthusiasm" for a real cleanup Morris blasted McGrath to a fare- Ihee-well. He salrt he'll leave behind a bunch of suggestions for keeping the government honest but declared: "I have no Illusions that these . . . will become law during the Both Barrels Fired life of this administration." Then the 5-foot-3 New Yorker let go with booth barrels: "If my associates and I haven't done anything else," he told re- Porters in a bleak, brick-walled room of the headquarters he was about to vacate, "we have got rid of Howard McGrath from the federal government—and it only took two months. "Given six months we'd have got rid of some more." Morris said he hart no Idea why McGrath fired him—in a brusque", two-paragraph letter that didn't reach Morris until after he'd read it in an Associated Press story. But he said his ouster "does not disillusion me. for I never had any illusions about Howard McGrath." u««ior jfj ^1^1 LAST TIMES TODAY EXTRA!
