BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Senate's Red Probers Pbnder Future Under Reins of GOP By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON (Hi — A bfg question mark hung over the future of tbe Senate's internal security subcommittee today In an Ironio twist to th* Republican election victory. fci the last two years, under the chairmanship of Democratic Sen. Pat HcCarran of Nevada, the subcommittee has supplanted the HOUM Un - American Activities Committee M the chief congres- ktatul group probing for Coinmu- oi»t Influences In and out of government. A unit ol th* Senate Judiciary Committee, of which McCarran •Iso 1* chairman, the subcommlt- (*> has a number of Investigations , under way now. One of these Is a hunt for any American Commu- • nlsla working for the United Nation*. Republican control of the Senate wiM knock McCarran out of MB Judiciary Committee chairmanship, and the outlook Is that his successor will be Sen. William Lunger (R-KD). Langer was among tho sjnall band of senators who fought two years ago In a dramatic all-night session to uphold President Tru- man'i veto of the Internal Security Act sponsored by McCarran. During the night Langer collapsed and had to b« carried from the Senate chamber on a stretcher. After enactment of the law, the International security subcommittee was set up In December, 1050, to police Its enforcement. It also was given brond power to Investigate the espionage and subversive activities generally, Authority Expire* Dee. Jl Its authority will expire on Dec. 11, however, and It Is doubtful whether Langer, as chairman of the Judiciary Committee, would seek to have ft extended. ' Even If the subcommittee were given a new lease on life, Lnnger 1 would be In a position to change It* whole complexion' since tho chairman appoints the members: He probably could key It to a minor role at the most. Sen. Alexander Wiley of Wiscon- sin'is the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee but he also outranks all his OOP colleagues on the 'Foreign Relations Committee and has made plain he Intends to lay claim to the chairmanship of : that group. : Since * senator cannot be chairman ol two regular legislative committees, Langer is in position as the number two Republican on the Judiciary Committee to step In as chairman! Committee chairmanships are based on length of service and'lhis seniority custom la rigidly adhered to. - McCaran Helped GOP Republican leaders no 'doubt would be only too happy to devise isome way to prevent Linger, from getting the Judiciary Committee post, however, partly because 'he supported President T r u m a n's campaign trip through North Dakota and introduced him In glowing terms. Conversely, McCarran helped the Republicans win their thin margin In the Senate by throwing his Kup- pori to the re-election of Sen. George W., Malone of Nevada, R Pacific Volcano Is Erupting TOKYO (iP) — The new Pacific volcano Myojln was erupting violently this afternoon, belching imoke nearly 9,000 feet high, an Air Force officer reported today. Capt. John Ftihr of Chicago estimated the volcano 210 miles south . of Tokyo was about 500 feet above tha water. Republican who defeated the Democratic candidate nominated over McCarrnn's opposition. About half of all the legislation lhat goes through the Senate la landled by the Judiciary Commlt- !ee. It also passes on the nominations of all federal Judges and U. S. marshals. Should tho Internal security eub- commlltee die or become dormant under a Lunger-directed Judiciary Committee, Its work and much of Its staff might be lakcn over by the Governmental Operations Committee. Tills group also has broad powers of Investigation and Sen. Joseph McCarlhy <R-Wls) is in line for the chairmanship. Russia's Sub Fleet Largest, Britains Say LONDON Ml — Britain's author- tative . naval yearbook, Jane'r; Fighting Ships, says the Soviet Union's submarine fleet still Is by far the world's largest although It appears to be tho same stes as a yenr ago.

Navy's "colossal lighting force" Is the largest peacetime fleet ever mafn- :alned by any country—as big as nil the other nuvles of the world combined. The U. S. submarine force of 200 ships, however, was greatly out- clnssed by the Russians. Brltaln'» subs were listed at about 50.
