To Shorten Hearings? Sunday, May 9, 1954 Page 5—The Salina Journal By Jack Bell and G. Milton Kelly * WASHINGTON, MayjS (ft-Com mittee Democrats and*Army officials held out tonight against a Republican leadership proposal to cut short the McCarthy-Army row by calling Sen McCarthy (R-Wis) Monday as the final witness in public hearings Sen. Dirksen (R-1U) said, with the outspoken backing of Sen. | Bridges (R-NH), the Senate present pro-tempore; that he will move m the Senate Investigations subcommittee Monday to-supplant Secretary of * the Army Stevens on Dirksen the stand with McCarthy Dirksen explained that his proposal, would open the way for the committee—if it chooses to do so— to take testimony later behind closed doors from Roy M. Cobn, McCarthy's chief counsel. Army counselor John G. Adams and other present "principals" in the controversy. Solid Backing Dirksen predicted he will have solid backing from the subcommittee's other three Republicans, al though Chairman Mundt (R-SD) said he had'not-been approached! by his Illinois colleague about the proposal. The Democrats, outnumbered 4-3 gave immediate signs lh?t they would fight the move. They regard it as ah attempt to end a:public spectacle which they see as po litically damaging,to the GOP. Sen. McClellan of Arkansas, top Democrat on the subcommittee, announced in an. interview that he will vote against,Dirksen's motion if the latter makes it, as. promised, at Lhe opening of the 13th day of televised hearings Monday special events planned for the old cars. The parade-through ..Beloit willj begin at 10 a. m. Saturday, May morning "All of the accusers and the accused should be heard in, public •'hearings," McClellan said. "They should have their day, just as Secretary Stevens has had. All the principals should be treated alike."

Mrs. Willie,Emerson Murray, who has been breaking tradition for three years as Oklahoma's.. first lady, is ambitious to smash another one and become Oklahoma's first lady governor. The vivacious, 45-year-old wife of Gov. Johnston Murray is confident her unprecedented attempt lo follow her husband in office will be successful. No woman has ever bscn governor of Oklahoma and no wife of a governor, has ever sought public office. But in the wide-oper, race with 16 Democratic candidates 1 her potential as a vote-getter will have to be considered, at least until July 6 when the primary comes off. The Murray name is well known. Hcr father-in-law, William H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray, was governor from 1931-1935.

But they have attracted more than 57,000 visiors and Mrs. Murray was at the front iocr of .the mansion to 'greet each visitor. In addition, she has spoken before an estimated 60,000 persons at exhibits boosting made-in-Oklahoma products.

Oklahoma governors are prohib- ted by state constitution from a She explains-she wants-lo carry on his program and "I have some! definite ideas of my own." Her husband, attending the interview, added with a grin, "That's for certain." They have been married 21 years. To what extent her present position as first lady will mean in the campaign remains to be seen.

Complicating her campaign will be another candidate, W. • C. Docnges -who helped elect her, hus^ band in 1950.
