commit tee with Howard C Hopsoa mas ter mind of the Associated Gas and Electric sys tem The commit tee still will be in existence when congress con venes next win ter It also can hold sessions during the congres sional recess Congressman John J OConnors similar committee of members of the house of representatives doesnt sig nify so much It appears to be friendly to Hopson and presumably will let him alone Senator Black however is hostile all right Indeed Black has pushed his inquiry so far that he scarcely can stop without giving the impression that he has been called off by the administra some of the information he has uncovered has been rather embarrassing to it and the senator is an administrationist himself Hopsons Nerve Hopson was a great surprise to the lobby investigators From the fashion in which he dodged their subpena servers in the early days of the quiz they iiad ar rived at the conclusion he previ ously had been virtually unknown to politicians that he was timid The fact is as he demonstrated on the witness stand his nerve is phe nomenal Finally caught it would be more correct to say that he accepted serv ice of the lawmakers summonses in his own good he proved to la a jollylooking smiling superficial ly amiable very short very fat man But he can cease to smile Prodded he hasitin him to turn as vicious as an enraged rhinoceros which his physique in his own hu man way sDggests on a small scale However he hasnt a chnrging rhinoceros impetuosity he is cool Not Popular Man Hopson is not popular among all holders of utility stocks For example the American Fed I eration of Utility Investors under the presidency of Dr Hugh S Ma gill wholly disavows him accusing him of having sacrificed the utilities I and their customers alike to his own personal interest Chairman Philip H Gaclsden of the committee of public utility cxec utives says My committee utterly condemns Isome of the practices which have been charged against certain rep Iresentatives of the Associated Gas land Electric company and regrets iHoward C Hopsons apparent effort Ito evade testifying before the inves tigating committee until compelled do soT Branded as Racketeer The American Federation of Util Investors through Dr MagiU ind the committee of public utility executives through Chairman Gads den imply that Hopson has rack eteered on them as well as on the public Nevertheless if a racketeer at all ne has been a bold not a timid one and cornered he is not timid now Courage must be accorded its leed of praise even in a suspected public enemy A congressional inquisition be it haid isnt overly fair reckoned ac fording to AngloSaxon legal rules In a court of justice the accused Individual has certain rights He cannot properly be brow eaten from the bench he

received a note from underCommisar N N Kres tinsky which read Your note of Aug 25 contains no facts which could beregarded as a violation on the part of the soviet government of its obligations Assumes No Obligations On the other hand it is un doubtedly nothing new for the gov ernment of the United States that the government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics cannot assume and has never assumed any obligations as regards the Com munist Internationale Krestinsky summed up by say ing I cannot accept ypur protest and I am compelled to reject it Krestinskys note said Respects Mutual Pledge I consider it necessary to empha size with all energy that the gov ernment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics has always re garded and regards with the great est respect all
