Truman Conferenee No Place for MERRY-GO-ROUND DREW PEARSON Says: Secretary of Army admits he violates' law: Congress calls Secretary Rojall on carpet re conscription propaganda; Kosall tries to sell Cadillac sedan on black market. WASHINGTON: -- Bluff, gcmai Secretary of the Army Royall has a unique way of combining charm with an ability to put cabinet col- Jeaguei. on the hot spot. His retention of Ed Paulcy as special assistant to the army has caused Many Truman more trouble than any other recent political bombshell Perhaps more fundamental though little noticed, has been the hole into which Royall placed his friend, the attorney general. He has given Attorney General Tom Clark the alternative of either on tours of the unit by selected guides, who were able to sell the virtues of the plan under consideration." This Congressional report was approved bv the entire committee --both Democrats and Republicans --even including Jim VYadsworth of New York, father-in-law of btu- art Symington, at that time assistant secretary of war for air.

On top of this, when called before Congress he not only admitted he had violated the law, but said he had "no apologies to make." First Congressional report on Rovall's activities was made July ·3 'by the House Expenditures subcommittee. Rep. Forrest Harness of Indiana, chairman.
