THURSDAY, OCT. », 195» BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Veteran U. S. Attorney Called to Testify Before Justice Probe Committee By KUSSELL BRINES WASHINGTON GH — Howard L. Doyle, veteran U. S. attorney at Springfield, 111., appears before House Investigators today for questioning about outside legal activities. The 58-year-old attorney, who has said he has done nothing to warrant an investigation, was summoned as a witness before a House judiciary subcommittee which Is probing the Justice Department. IJoyle's office Is one of several U. S. attorneys' offices which the subcommittee has looked Into, Chairman Chelf (D-Ky) said. Robert Collier, the committee counsel, said Doyle "has engaged In outside practice over a period of years, and there is some evidence that such practice may have Involved a conflict with the Interests of the government." Doyle has been U. S. attorney for Southern Illinois since 1935. Collier told newsmen that Justice Department attorneys are permitted to practice law on the outside, but the regulations prohibit any practice that "in any way or mariner conflicts with the interests of the United States government." Doyle's name came into subcommittee testimony yesterday during a hearing on Justice Department decisions concerning the prosecution of the Pabst Brewing Company. Earlier this -year un a charge of violating pure food laws. During a Washington conference on the matter last February, Doyle was quoted as saying he has "always taken my oath of office seriously and have never done any' tiling or will do anything which will cause me to fear any Investigation whatsoever." The Food and Drug Administration recommended seizure of 100,000 pounds of corn grits, used for beef, after an' inspection of the Pnbst Plant at Peoria, 111., disclosed "shocking, unsanitary" conditions last year, the subcommittee was told. An inspector said he found insects and rodent filth In the grain. The seizure was postponed and eventually dropped upon decision of John T. Orlgsby, an attorney n the Justice Department's criminal section. Orglsby testified the company intended to destroy the contaminated grain and he believed there was no need for the seizure. George p. Larrick, deputy Food and Drug administrator, said destruction of the grain prevented a civil suit against the company and thereby lessened any deterrent effect the prosecution would have had on other brewers. Doyle, under instructions, eventually prosecuted the company on criminal charges, after recommending against this action because he said It would damage the Pabst reputation. The court found the company guilty on six counis and fined It $600. Pabst pleaded nolo contendere, which meunt it neither contested nor admitted the charges. Larrick testified he believed the company Is now operating legally and its beer is clean. The company issued a statement in Chicago yesterday saying: "Destruction of faulty material Is routine, whether the fault happens to be detected by an outside agency like Food and Drug or by our own laboratories who constantly check such matters. The carload in question had not as yet been inspected by our Milwaukee laboratory. "Far more material of various kinds is rejected by our laboratories on routine check than the shipment here in question. . . . The present matter seems to have been brought to attention because of .an allegation that the Justice Department was in error in permitting destruction of the material before rather than after H lawsuit. "We are confident that there was nothing improper in the arrangement worked out by our attorney, which actually expedited disposal of the matter instead of delaying it."
