NO*THWST ARKANSAS TUMI, f«»«M»»Hto, AHMMW, T»niy, Caudle Called To Tell About Tax Cases Former Assistant Attorney General In Secret Hearing Washington - ( £ ) - House investigators called T. Lamar Caudle . Into a closed-door cession today to tell about bl handling of tax cases before 'he was fired is an assistant attorney general last November 16. Caudle's name figured in two . casts which came under the scrutiny of a House Judiciary Subcommittee last week. The first was the alleged at- CALL FLINT Steel TULSA MI. Mm p. o. t» net MEMPHIS Pk. W-J4J1 P. O. t« 1191 FLINT STEEL tempt 'to "whitewash" a Grand Jury investigation In St. Louis, which eventually led to the indictment and conviction of Internal Revenue Collector James P. Finnegan on charges of misconduct in office. Flnnegan is appealing. The second 'was a war frauds case against a Detroit man which languished without prosecution for six years and finally was dropped because, as Subcommittee Counsel Robert A. Collier put it, it became "enfeebled by age." Caudle was in charge of tax prosecutions for the Justice Department at the time both cases were pending. Whether' he will appear later at a public hearing depends largely, said Representative Keating (R-NY), on what develops at this afternoon's closed- door session. Keating is ranking minority member of the subcommittee. Willing To Cooperate Caudle, before leaving his home at Wadesboro, N. C. last weekend, said he would be "delighted to cooperate with the committee as I have with other committees." Federal Judge George H. Moore told the subcommittee in a statement last Thursday that the Justice Department, from former Alt/. Gen. J. Howard McGrath on down, dragged its feet in the Grand Jury investigation of the St. Louis revenue office. Moore said the department took no action to get a complete investigation going until he served notice he was going to order an inquiry himself. There was earlier testimony that, until Judge Moore Intervened, the St. Louis Grand Jury did nothing but present a preliminary report which one juror called a whitewash. Ellis N. Slack, who was Caudle's assistant at the time and who now holds Caudle's job, denied suggestions that he had approved this preliminary report. Caudle accompanied Slack to St. Louis when the Grand Jury was starting its inquiry. Representative Chelf (D-KY), chairman of the subcommittee, MOORE'S FUNERAL CHAPEL declared last week: "It appears to me that there was a definite attempt to either flag down, delay, sidetrack, derail or entirely wreck this Grand Jury investigation." Fmd Charged The Detroit cage Involves an indictment returned early in 1944 charging Norman E. Miller, an industrial engineer and designer, with defrauding the government of $14,000 in charges for work on government contracts. After numerous delays, during which Miller changed lawyers several times, the case finally was dropped in Octo, her, 1950. The government lost four of its key witnesses during the six-year hiatus. Caudle's name appeared on one of the letters read into the record last week. Replying to a letter from one of Miller's attorneys in August, 1945, Caudle suggested the defense lawyers be given "opportunity within reason" to present facts bearing on the truth or falsity of the'charges in the Indictment. Caudle was fired by President Truman for engaging in "outside activities" not in keeping with his duties as chief tax prosecutor. Top Officials Quit The Cowlitotionil Party Chaplin, Conn.-(/P)-The newly- formed Constitution party has lost two top-level officers because, they said, some of its members made state statements which sounded anti-Semitic. Mrs. Suzanne Silvercruys Stevenson, chairman, announced her resignation and that of Co-Chairman Percy L. Greaves, Jr., of Chevy-Chase, Md. A spokesman had said the party sought to persuade members of the Electoral College to vote for Gen. Douglas MacArthur for president. Asked if she objected to the MacArthur movement, she said she considered it "idealistic" and "not feasible." She said some of ^he members of the party objected to her because she was a Catholic and foreign born. Keel) ·» wttk law ihnM--nti -. HUM* tWty.

PAY MS uTTU AS $3 tXJWN ON CONV04MNT TERMS Professional Democratic Politicians Said To Feel Stevenson Is Using Ammunition Too Fast Fear He May Run Out During Campaign . By JAMES MARLOW Washington -UP)- Some i! the professional Democratic politicians are reportedly worried that Governor Stevenson may use up his ammunition too fast. Their thinking seems to go like this: If he spells out in detail his position on all the issues too early in the campaign, which opened yesterday, by the end of the cam- j paign he'll sound like a scratched phonograph record: repeating himself. But this seems to Le a hazard he faces only if his ideas are so limited, and the issues so few, that all he has to say can be said in the first few weeks. Running out of. something to say is a fate which seldom overtakes a politician, and Governor Stevenson has had some political experience. Since General Eisenhower is,so much better known than he is, Stevenson may feel it's necessary to start shooting with both barrels early to get attention. He may also feel that since he's running for the presidency, he has an ob- ligation to make his position clear and that's the only way he'd want to run. Some of the people around Eisenhower have indicated that the general is pacing himself, that he alms to pick up steam as he goes along and have plenty of socko left for the windup. There is a hazard In this strategy, too, of course. If Stevenson states his position on the main issues early and Eisenhower later comes along and takes a similar stand, the Democrats are a cinch to tag him with "me, too." The fact that men in both camps are discussing whether the candidates should lay it on the line on all the issues early is pretty good evidence they haven't laid much on the line yet. About the most definite .thing either of them has said so far was Stevenson's Detroit speech yesterday. He suggested wiping out the Taft-Hartley act and replying it with a milder labor saw. This was the real campaign opener. Eisenhower gets under way today with speeches in the South. Truman Under McClellan Fire At Bull Shoals Place For Private And Public Power, Senator Declares Bull Shoiils. Ark.-WVScn. John | L. McClellan struck out »t President Truman yesterday before he pulled the switch (o begin turning out power at the new 76 million dollar Bull Shoalu dam here.
