Howard McGralh with him. President Truman reported yesterday he expects to accept y resignation from Symington later to return to private business. 1 today on the future of Atty. Gen. ' J. Howard McGrath, a wheel-horse in the Truman cabinet for the last two years. A fair assumption based on developments yesterday is that nothing has been decided despite growing criticism that he lias not been vigorous enough in cracking down on irregularities in his department, The attorney general refused to talk with reporters. Through a secretary, he sent out a repeated 'no comment" all day yesterday on a fresh f l u r r y of unconfirmed reports that hn may shortly leave government service. President Truman declined to answer any question on McGrath's status. Both actions were in sharp contrast to the prompt and emphatic denials made by both Mr. Truman .and McGrath as recently as three weeks ago that the attorney general might resign. Statement Expected The resignation reports, then and now, stem from congressional investigations into alleged federal income tax frauds, reputed attempts to influence government officials in pending cases, and the W. Stuart Symington indications are that resignations also will' bo forthcoming f r o m , a number cf key officials installed by Symington in the RFC to help him with a sweeping cleanup job. Symington and his houst'clean- Ing crew took over last May after a Senate subcommittee charged the RFC with yielding to a political influence ring with White House contacts. Symington was out of town ami not available for comment on Mr. Truman's announcement, but his close associates said the abruptness of it took them by surprise. Symington said only recently he wanted to leave the government, but had lots of u n f i n i s h e d problems lo settle at the HFC first. Denies I'olieies Involved Mr. Truman said RFC policies HEAD STUFFY DUE TO COLDS ** TAKE^ {,,!,,, /» £ f* symptomstic ODD RELIEF were not involved in the resignation. Symington has been at odds some State De- however, partment officials over deadlocked negotiations with Bolivia on new tin prices. James Allen, a special assistant to Symington, said today he cx- pccls to resign shortly. Peter I. Bukowski, Chicago banker who has been No. 2 man in the agency, stepped put over the weekend. Solis ITorwitz, RFC general counsel, said he hadn't made specific plans, but indicated he might leave soon. A quintet of other lop assistants may leave along with their boss, or shortly afterward, officials saifl. These officials, all with" the title of special assistants to Symington, include Edward C. Welsh, economist; Don Burrows, controller; Spencer Shannon, materials expert; Ramsay Potts, military expert; and Dabney Pcnick, investment advisor. Shannon said he had no definite plans yet. When he moved into the RFC, Symington ordered a series of policy changes. All loans were made public, a drastic change from the past secrecy. Companies seeking RFC loans had to list their representatives dealing with the agency and had to report any fees involved. Regional RFC offices were stripped of power to approve loans. criticism of the political opposition that McGrath has not been sufficiently firm in dealing with the situation. H is believed the president shortly will make a formal statement on McGrath, butmas not decided what that statement will say. Some hard choices are involved: The president finds on one hand a group of strident Republicans clamoring at the start of a presidential campaign year for a scalp somewhat bigger than that of Assistant Atty. Gen. T. Lamar Caudle fired by the president November 16 for "outside activities" while heading the Justice Department's tax division. On the other hand, McGrath Is the president's long-time trusted friend not personally accused of any irregularity and generally credited with doing as much as any one man in getting Mr. Truman elected in 1948. McGrath at the time was chairman of the Democratic National Committee. In these circumstances many find it difficult to believe a presidential dismissal possible. Choicei For McGralh McGrath also is confronted with hard choices: His loyalty to the president and to his party is ingrained. A voluntary step-down in favor of another appointee as attorney general might assist the president but it would be hard to take after more than 21 years of distinguished public service and the possibility of even higher office. It has long been a generally accepted fact here that McGrath would be given the next vacancy on the Supreme Court. One strong point in his favor here is the fact that he is a leading layman of the Catholic Church which now has no member on the Supreme Court for the first lime in 55 years. The recent flurry of McGrath reports also have included forecasts that he might become an ambassador.
