SNYDKR WASHINGTON W> — A House Investigation of the Justice Department had en open date today but Chairman Chelf (D-Ky) announced Its next, star witness will be former Atty. Gen. J, Howard McGrath. McGrath, who was fired by President Truman shortly after his first appearance before the committee last spring, Is slated to appear on Sept. 15 in public session. Meanwhile, the committee planned to continue a closed-door session with T. Lamar Caudle, ousted by Truman from his post as assistant attorney general last' November. The next huddle with the Wades- fouro, N. C., lawyer who once headed the government's criminal and tax prosecuting agencies will take place tomorrow, Caudle indicated in an executive session on Tuesday Hint lie- has a lot of information to pass on lo the probers. And it is expected he win he quizzed abmit ihn committee's latest exposure: the of a government attorney getting a "felift" of §750 from a law firm in 1947 after a government CJLSC was j dropped against ihe Carnation Milk | Co.. Buffalo. N. Y, Caudle was chief of the Criminal Division at the time. James A. MuNnlly, whose resignation came quickly last month fifier hft \vss suspended from his I Criminal Division post, testified lie * received SfoQ from Gordon L. EaKle, a. former departmental colleague who quit in 1916 to enter private practice. It wasn't a fee and it wasn't compensation "because I did nothing to earn it," Mullally told the committee. He said tbe whole tiling Rtartod with a telephone call from John Acker, counsel for Carnation, who once had been a government lawyer. Mullally snid Acker asked him about a case the Food and Drug Administration brought against his concern in Buffalo because two shipments of evaporated milk didn't contain as much vitamin D as their labels claimed. Mullally snid lie knew nothing about the case. But he did "mention" to Acker that their old mutual friend, Eakle, was in private practice here and that an associate, Irvin Goldstein, formerly worked in the food and drug section. It developed that Carnation retained Eakle's law firm and within a short time the Justice Department signaled the U. S. attorney nl Buffalo to drop the criminal prosecution and send the concern a warning letter instead. In April, 1347, Eakle collected a $3,000 fee from Carnation, And, as both Multally and Eakle testified, Mullally received $750, less two or three hundred dollars which represented a debt he owed Eakle. Eakle told the committee that Mullally "needed the money so I 1 gave it to him." Each testified he did not con- sider It a fee, and saw nothing wrong with It. But MuMally Raid he wouldn't repeat it if he had it to do again, Vincent A, Kleinfeld. the Justice Department Iriwyer who was in "harge of food and drug cases, estified a recommendation that he criminal prosecution should be dropped was reached by him and James E.
