By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON EarJ. of the nine men around the curved, green-topped table is a lawyer. Seven of them are senators. And while several are prominent within the halls of Congress, not one was exactly a household word before May 17. On that day the Democratic and three Repub- lican senators and two legal strip ping away the layers of political espionage and intrigue that is the Watergate scandal. Since then they have heard a convicted burglar describe how to tap a telephone and have been taken step-by-step on a silent police raid through a darkened office building- all before a nationwide tele- vision audience. And all without leaving the red-carpeted Senate caucus room that has been dramatic moments before. This is the Senate Water- gate investigating committee and their stage is one which has resounded in the past with testimony concerning other dramas Titanic. Teapot Dome, McCarthy, Mafia and Hoffa. Because the Democrats hold the majority in the Senate, the chairman is a Democrat, and the Democrats hold a ma- jority on the committee. These are the nine men whose deliberations have shaken the United States right up to the White House: Senator Sam Ervin (Dem.- at 76 one of the oldest men in the Senate. White- haired with black, eloquent eyebrows and an unmistak- able southern accent. A con- servative, he has filibustered against civil rights bills and fought federal housing bills and defended the Supreme Court's decision against prayer in the schools. He is a leading opponent of the presi- dential impoundment of funds. As chairman of the commit- tee, he has promised there wiE be "no witch hunt" and "no circus atmosphere." Senator Howard H. Baker 47, is vice-chair- man and leading Republican on the committee. He is one of the few senators to mention impeachment of the president as a possible outcome of the investigation. Although consi- dered by some as possible presidential or vice-presiden- tal calibre, he has refused to take a partisan line as a com- mittee member. Baker has said he would not exclude the possibility that President Nixon might be invited before the committee "to state his case." Senator Lowell P. Weicker 41, sought mem- bership on the committee and has been one of the most vocal of its members. Some reporters allege that some of the Watergate leaks have em- anated from his office. Weicker was the first openly to implicate H. R. Haldeman, former White House chief of staff, in the Watergate cover- up. Won't pull punches Senator Herman E. Tal- madge 59, tobac- co-chewing son of Eugene Tal- made, 3 famous Georgia governor, is chairman of the powerful agriculture commit- tee and a power in the Senate. He sees his role on the com- mittee as that of a juror and vows "the investigation will be completely the chips fall where they may." Senator Daniel K. Inouye, 48, product of a Japanese ghetto in Hono- lulu, lost his right arm serv- ing as a captain in the U.S. Army during the Second World War. He is assistant Democratic whip in the Se- nate and aspires to become majority leader. Senator Edward J. Gurney, (Rep. 59, the frst Re- publican senator from Flori- da this century. He has de- fended Nixon policies in the controversial hearings of the judicial committee of which he is a member. Gurney comes up next year for re- election to a second term. Senator Joseph M, Montoya 57, in public of- fice continusouly from the age 21 and although a member of the Senate for the last eight years, one of the lesser-known senators in Washington. He has a liberal domestic voting record. Samuel Dash, 48, criminal law professor at Georgetown University, is chief legal ad- viser to the committee. He is considered a leading authority on wire-tapping. Dash, a for- mer Philadelphia district at- torney, drew early criticism by talking to reporters during the committee's organiza- tional period. Fred D. Thompson, 30, Is a former U.S. attorney from Nashville, Term., and de- scribed as more used to hand- ling moonshine and robbery cases than sophisticated gov- ernmental hearings. He was campaign manager for Sena- tor Baker and is specifically legal adviser to the minority side of the committee.
