MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Quick Action Expected On Senate Rules Proposals to Get Early Hearing, Knowland Says WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republican Leader Knowland said today proposed changes in rules for Senate investigating committees "undoubtedly will be taken up" early in the next session of Congress. He said in an interview there appears to be a general feeling among senators that "some rules changes are necessary and desirable." Various proposals to establish "a code of fair procedures" for investigating committees were offered during 1 the past session of Congress, but no action was taken on them. In part they grew out of the McCarthy-Army row and other controversies revolving around Sen. McCarthy's handling of the Senate Investigations subcommittee. Democrats will control the new Congress, and Knowland said it will take "a high degree of cooperation" between the parties to effect any rules changes. But he said that if this is achieved and if the subject is taken up early enough, he believed rules changes could be adopted. He did not commit himself to any specific changes. The special bipartisan committee which recommended censure of McCarthy also urged four rules changes which it said would have prevented "much of the criticism against investigative committee hearings." A Senate Rinct, subcommittee under the chairmanship of Sen. Jenner (R-Ind) held extensive hearings earlier in the year on proposals for fair investigating procedures. Jenner said several weeks ago a report would be ready by the time the new Congress convenes. The Senate Republican Policy Committee drafted last spring suggested changes in rules which some Senate committees adopted voluntarily. While not spelling out details, Knowland said a code of fair procedures should deal with the rights of witnesses,, methods of issuing subpoenas, hearing practices, and television and broadcasting problems.
