Western Air Express Another was to Western Air Ex press from Clarence M Young who succeeded MacCracken as assistant secretary of commerce in the last administration The arrest of MacCracken and the senate order that his files be seized caused somewhat of a sensa tion in the capital Not for years had the senate ordered the arrest of an outsider Stands on Privilege MacCracken himself took some what of a different attitude toward the situation today He had told in vestigators that he wag standing upon the privilege of a lawyer In not disclosing the affairs of a client Those close to the former official said today however that just about the time he was arrested yesterday he had gotten word from the last of his aviation clients releasing him from any pledge of privacy about their affairs Frank J Hogan Mac Crackens attorney said the files would be turned over to the senate But by the time he spoke investi gators already were poring through them Letters From Files What had angered the senators most was the testimony of Mac Cracken himselfthat after refusing to place his airmail correspondence before the investigating committee the officials of two airways com panies had taken letters from the files Chairman Black of the senate committee said the letters had been destroyed The officials themselves were quoted as saying the letters were personal correspondence and that they had nothing to conceal Despite the obvious ire of the sen ate the actual arrest of MacCracken by Chesley Jumey the senate ser geantatarms was almost reminis cent of good fellows getting togeth er
