For Inquiry Into Choice
Of O’Dwyer as Envoy
By the Associated Press
Republicans looked today for a
formal complaint that might
justify a Senatorial inquiry into
President.. Truman’s appointment
of Mayor William O’Dwyer of New
York City as Ambassador to
Senator Smith, Republican, of
New Jersey, told a reporter he is
studying informal criticism of the
selection of Mr. O’Dwyer. He said
he probably will ask the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee to
delay action on the nomination
until more information is avail
Chairman Connally called the
committee together today to con
sider the nomination, along with
other business.
Senator Smith said Norman
Thomas, perennial Socialist Party
candidate for president, had
called on him and urged that no
action be taken on the nomina
tion until there had been a full
Confers with Lodge Also.
Senator Lodge, Republican, of
Massachusetts, confirmed that he
had received a similar visit from
Mr. Thomas. But he added that
so far as he knows Mr. Thomas
has made no formal protest.
Senator Hickenlooper, Republi
can, of Iowa, another committee
member, said he hasn’t made up
his mind yet whether he will op
pose Mr. O’Dwyer.
Senator Connally told a report
er he doesn’t think there can be
any except political objections.
Senator Smith said information
he has received bears on Mr.
O’Dwyer’s record as a district at
torney in Brooklyn before his
election as mayor, as well as on
a recent Brooklyn grand jury re
port. He did not detail It.
“Witch Hunt” Charged.
The recent grand jury criticized
Mr. O’Dwyer, without naming him,
for the mayor’s assertion that the
mesent district attorney in Brook
lyn was conducting a “witch hunt”
and harrassing city police in an
inquiry into gambling.
Senator Connally’s observation
that politics is involved was denied
by the Republican members. But
it seemed apparent that some
Republicans would welcome an
opportunity to make things un
comfortable for Mr. O’Dwyer, if
only for the effect that might have
on the New York voting situation.
