Butler Inquiry
Was Prepared
Composite Picture
Of Tydings and
Browder Explained
By W. H. Shippen
Investigators were told today
that Senator Butler probably
knew nothing about the prepara
tion of a campaign tabloid de
scribed by his unsuccessful op
ponent, Millard E. Tydings, as a
“tissue of lies.”
Frank Smith, former Times
Herald chief editorial writer and
now administrative assistant to
Senator Butler, told the inauiry
that he supervised the preparation
of the four-page “circular.”
Mr. Smith testified: “I do not
recall discussing the circular with
John Marshall Butler until after
the election was over.”
Mr. Tydings was especially
critical of a “composite" photo
graph in the tabloid which pur
ported to show him in friendly
association with Earl Browder,
former Communist leader.
Didn’t Originate Idea.
Mr. Smith said:
“In the interest of truth I wish
to make it clear that I did not
originate the idea. I did not
handle its make-up. It W'as taken
out of my hands entirely. Mr.
Tankersley executed the whole
The witness was referring to
Garvin Tankersley, former as
sistant managing editor of the
Times Herald and now an em
ploye of the Chicago Tribune,
owner of the local newspaper.
Referring to the composite pic
ture, Mr. Smith said Mr. Tankers
iey “ordered it done and returned
it to me when it was finished. I
do not say this in any effort to
shift any responsibility on any
one else because I considered the
composite idea merely a technical
solution to a space problem.”
Mr. Smith told the subcommit
tee that “at no time w’as it ever
imagined that any one would
think the composite was anything
but what it was plainly marked.”
Suggested by Mrs. Miller.
Mr. Smith said the idea of the
tabloid was first suggested to him
by Mrs. Ruth McCormick Miller,
.editor of the Times-Herald, which
printed half a million copies of
the newspaper at a charge of
$1,440 to Butler supporters
Mrs. Miller, who is to testify
later today along with several
Times-Herald employes, was a
spectator in the crowded caucus
room at the Senate office building
while Mr. Smith told his story.
The witness explained that
W’hile he was born in Cumberland,
Md., he is now a resident of Vir
ginia. He had w’orked on the
Baltimore Sun and for many
years was assigned to Capitol Hill
as a reporter for the Times-Herald
before he wras made chief editorial
writer, three years ago.
In the latter part of October,
Mr. Smith said Mrs. Miller told
him the paper had been asked to
publish a circular, “From the
Got Material From McCarthy.
, “I began to gather the material
w'hich came from Senator Mc
Carthy’s office,” Mr. Smith said,
and from Mr. Jon Jonkel and
others working in his office and
some stock news service pictures
were taken from the Times
Herald library.”
Senator McCarthy campaigned
against Mr. Tydings after the lat
ter presided at a Senate inquiry
into McCarthy charges of Com
munist infiltration of the State
Department. The Wisconsin Sen
ator charged that Mr. Tydings’
group “whitewashed” his charges.
Mr. Jonkel is the Chicago
public relations expert who was
hired by Mr. Butler as his cam
paign manager after Mrs. Miller
telephoned Mr. Jonkel in Chicago
and asked that he come here to
confer with Mr. Butler and Mary
land Republican leaders.
All of the material for the tab
loid, Mr. Smith said, “finally
found its way to my desk. Nothing
used in ‘From the Record’ was
new. It had all been printed be
fore or used by radio com
mentators or used by responsible
persons in speeches.
“Much of the information was
taken directly from the Congres
sional Record or from newspaper
columns. It was a rehash. Much
of it I copied. Other portions
were boiled down from the thou

Rain, Snow or Both
Facing D. C. Today
And Tomorrow
Rain or snow or a combination
of the two were on the Weather
Bureau’s schedule for the District
both today and tomorrow.
The forecaster predicted rain
this afternoon and tonight, pos
sibly mixed with some wet snow.
Tomorrow, he said, will be cloudy,
w’indy and rather cold, with oc
casional rain or snow.
The Associated Press reported
a light snow in southwestern
Virginia today. About an inch

hearings since February 21 on
whether the RFC yielded to out
side influence ended its “agenda
of cases” late yesterday. It ex
pects to meet once more, prob
ably Friday, to hear one of the
RFC directors, C. Edward Rowe.
But two subcommittee members,
Chairman Fulbright, Democrat, of
Arkansas and Senator Capehart,
Republican, of Indiana, may take
the Senate floor before then in
a debate on what ought to be
done from now on.
Wants Non-Political Study.
Amplifying his earlier sugges
tion for an investigation of the
“moral and ethical level” in gov
ernment, Senator Fulbright said
today the study should be made
by a “commission removed as far
as possible from politics.”
Such a group, in his opinion,
might include two Senators and
two Representatives, but also
should have at least four private
citizens. It should be headed “by
some man of the type of former
Supreme Court Justice Owen J.
Roberts, Milton Eisenhower, for
mer Secretary of War Robert Pat
terson or President James Conant
of Harvard,” he said.
"Such a commission could look
into Government agencies in gen
eral. including RFC, and perhaps
think out the problem of a code
of ethics for official conduct,” he
said. “And, of course, it could
look as well into any activities of
members of Congress that might
be unethical. That sort of a job
shouldn’t be done by a congres
sional committee, if only because
it might be embarrassing. I don’t
mean there would necessarily be
a cover-up, but it wouldn’t be a
good thing for a Senate commit
tee to censor Senators.”
Authority Expires April 30.
Senator Capehart, however, plans
to ask the Senate to appropriate
more money and extend the life
of the present subcommittee to
follow up the numerous disclosures
more or less related to RFC. The
subcommittee’s authority is due
to expire April 30.
A hearing from 10 a.m. to al
most 7 p.m. yesterday brought
fresh revelations and fireworks.
While they all did not directly
touch on that agency, they con
cerned activities of former Rep
resentative Joseph E. Casey of

Charges of “black market” op
erations and “payoffs” climaxed

had obtained big RFC loans.
Mr. Rosenbaum admitted that
the Atlantic Basin Iron Co., a
firm in which he and E. Merl
Young held options, made a profit
of about $80,000 last fall by buying
2,500 tons of steel from the Cen
tral Iron & Steel Co. of Harris
burg. Pa., and selling it to Price
Iron & Steel Co., a Chicago ware
housing concern.
Mr. Rosenbaum and Mr. Casey,
the subcommittee brought out,
were active in negotiations for
$6.3 million in loans approved by

United States Attorney George

of gambling here. That investi
