Lamar Caudle today had "an honest man" label pinned on him by House investigators of the Justice Department, Hut the former assistant attorney ) general carried away criticism to Hie effect that he was * indiscreet in his associations and a pliant conformer to the peculiar moral "climate of Washington." Chairman Chelf (D-Ky) and-Rep. Keating (R-NY) of a judiciary subcommittee gave their verdict in a joint statement yesterday after Caudle wound up about a week of tcstmony on his life and times .in administration circles. And the probers left the door open for former Atty. Gen. ,T. Howard McGrath to return for more testimony on what he knows about lh" White House, if he desires. They suggested his story might contain, a be tier explanation of w h y President Truman fired Caudle last November during an investigative furor over federal tax scandals, Truman said at the time it was because of Caudle's "out-1 SUM; activities," Caudle, in the closing minutes of hLs appearance, confirmed a report that McGrath told him: ' "I know enough about the White House to blow it so high it would \ be another satellite in the orbit and the force of gravity would never bring it back to earth." He testified also that McGrath informed him "the same White House clique" which he said brought about his dismissal "were also after him (McGrath)." McGrath was fired last April. Chelf and Keating hailed as "new evidence" Caudle's testimony that he had obtained McGrath's permission to accept a §5,000 commission on the sale of nn airplane. Chelf and Keating said the airplane deal "purportedly was a /actor" in Caudle's dismissal, but the new evidence "clearly indicates that he had prior approval from the Atty. Gen, McGrath." McGrath, told of Caudle's testimony, said in Rhode Island: "There is nothing I want to say lit this time." Caudle said he had 'no questions, no reservations, no anything" about the propriety of accepting the airplane sale commission. He said he explained to McGrath that the buyer, Larry Knohl, Kansas City businessman, had two friends who were involved in a tax fraud case. Caudle said the airplane deal was a "separate transaction," and that the tax case, in which he said he did not figure, was prosecuted Stevenson's Life Shown In Booklet WASHINGTON If) — Cov. Adlal E.

Eisenhower says the Republican party embraces the entire membership regardless ot whether ndividuals deas. with all of his In an address last night the GOP presidential nominee said the Democrats were trying to "most generously advise me which senators 1 should work with and which I should disown." Mentioning no names, Eisenhower obviously was referring to Democratic attacks on Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin and Sen. William E. Jenner of Indiana, both of whom are seeking re-election. "Membership in our party," Eisenhower said, 'does not neces- arily mean mutual agreement or approval other than on basic objectives and principles." "To hear them (Democrats^ talk." the general added, "you was something I Invented and they own — that they can dictate to me as a course of action and Republican candidates will fall in line. "U we are to bring new vigor and new Ideas into our free government, we must draw upon the energy and intelligence of all those who are joined with us. This drawing together in our cause of the best of the many lies at the heart of the forward movement of the Republican parly." Eisenhower said he welcomes into his "crusade" all of those who "shore a common repugnance to the mess in Washington." Tde Democrats have cited as- sertlons by McCarthy that Gen. George C.

The Republican nominee eald the Democrats have tried lo divide the people into classes and ceo- nomic blocs and set them one against the other "for political exploitation." On the subject of discrimination, he urged a ' Irue equality of opportunity for all men." ' 'I have no patience with the idea of second-class cilizenship." he said. "Vigorous action, including legislation at local levels," he said, can do much — with federal machinery set up lo "determine the facts of discrimination and hold these facls up for all Ihe people lo see." He called for abolishment of scg- rciiiUion in Washington and "such . . . as still remains in the armed forces." "In no operation of the federal is there a place for PAGE SEVEN discrimination of »ny fclnd," he declared. "We must work for the abolition of restrictions remaining anywnere on (he basic American right lo vote." he said.

Bernard W. <Pat) Kearney said today.

"The -whole spirit of lawlessness and corruption which the New Deal nnd Fair Deal have built up In the country was bound to have an effect, if we don't have honesty and Integrity In high levels of our national government how can tve expect these moral principles to apply elsewhere." Kearney also said: "The long-standing tie-up ot crime and politics Is a characteristic ot the Democrat party. When you add lo this the rank dishonesty and graft which infest the Democrat national administration It Is no wonder that we are faced with a sharp increase in crime."
