limelight No criticism of prober By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The Senate hearings in the Billie Sol Esle ease almost certainly will be marked by thoroughness stern ess fairness and a kind of no nonsense practicality you woulc associate with a good South ern conservative This will be a reflection of the character of the man who is presiding Chairman John L McClellan o the Senate Permanent Investi gating subcommittee the old McCarthy committee McClellan who took over the when the Democrats won con trol of Congress in 1955 has re Btorcd to the subcommittee the prestige it had under Harry Truman former Sen James M Mead DNY and the late Sen Clyde R Hoey DNC typical y he has assigned 46 investi gators to check on the affairs of Estcs About 100 witnesses wil be called Until John McClellan by the osmosis of the system became the ranking Democra on the Government Operations Committee and its unruly sub committee in 1953 he had at tracted little attention on Capi tol Hill although he had servec in the House from 1934 to 1937 and in the Senate since 1942 Even then he seemed inclined at first to go along with Joe Me Carthy the subcommittees flnmbouyant chairman But McClellan all the while was smarting under a series of Improprieties Finally when McCarthy hired a discredited expreacher and exRed as sub committee executive director McClellan walked out taking with him his Democratic col leagues They stayed off until Decem ber 1953 and didnt come back without concessions from Mc Carthy A few months later came the ArmyMcCarthy hear ings Overnight the morose in dependent always fair McClel land became known to millions of television viewers as the pos sessor of perhaps the only calm voice in what sometimes be came oC brouhaha of heroic in tensity Investigation of government procurement of army uniforms led eventually to the establish nient in 1957 of the Select Com miltee on Improper Activities in the Labor or Management Field It promptly became known as the McClellan Com mitlee Craggy and j u d i c ialman ncred are words that frequently turn up in articles about Mc Clellan There is a disposition here to respect his desire to curtain off his private life His first marriage ended in divorce His second wife and all three of his sons are dead He lives quietly with his third wife the former Norma Myra Chcatham There are two daughters McCleallan once explained his concept of investigating pro cedure thus When those who come before the committee resort to the Fifth Amendment they com mand no respect from me as individuals I respect their right to resort to it if they feel they must but it carries with it an implication I am com pelled to consider and not fav orably At the same time I dont believe in permitting smears and slander which cant be answered before the same tribunal Inevitably McCIcllans sub committee has occasionally been accused of headlinehunt recently in the rather pathetic questionings of Bgirls HJul exotic dancers But the criticism rarely applies to the chairman of the Sen atei top investigator DONALD KINYON N ews in a utshell FROM OTJE WJRE SERVICES Toll
