Where Do We Go From Here?
Tf Bend Bulletin, Thursday, May 26, 1955
Introduced Again
Once annin Oregon's Senator Wayne has in
troduced with other senators his bill to provide fair
play in committee hearings before the U. S. Senate.
The bill seems sure to run into some opposition. The
opposition, however, does not detract from the essential
soundness of the measure or its virtue.
The opposition comes from those who favor a somc-
what similar proposal but who disagree on the strictness
of the measure. The Morse bill would establish a fair
practice code and make it mandatory upon committee
chairmen and members to follow the code.
Those opposing the Morse bill would have such a
code established, but would not leave it up to individual
committee chairmen to determine whether or not the
code was observed.
As Morse says in his current "report":
"It is unfortunate that legislation such as this tends
to bo considered only when some emergency situation
arises. Yet there is a continuing need for a code of pro
cedure in line with the Bill of Rights of the Constitu
tion." When the bill was introduced in the last session of
Congress, Joe McCarthy was riding at the peak of his
' power. McCarthy felt the bill was a personal attack on
him, and apparently was able to stall action on it.
According to Morse, the measure provides for the
elimination of one-man investigations, requires advance
notice of charges of improper activity, provides reason
able time for. testimony on behalf of those accused, pro
vides for the cross examination of adverse witnesses and
gives the absolute right to be represented by an attorney
at hearings.
Although these safeguards may seem far-reaching
to some of the higher-riding members of congress, the
proposal is certainly not at all out of line. Provisions of
the bill would adequately safeguard the rights of those

Pay Off the Outfielders
A Seattle baseball fan has offered $100,000 to any
player who bats a ball through a specially-built "knot
hole" in a fence 360 feet away from home plate. Says
he's covered by insurance. A wise insurance company
might arrange a payoff to opposing outfielders who
pull in hits destined for the hole.
At the Crossroads '
The newly-elected state chairman of the Jlepuhli
can party, in his first talk to the party faithful in Cort
land Saturday, said the Republican party in Oregon was
"at the crossroads."
The chairman, Wendell Wyatt of Astoria, went on to
discuss the 1956 senatorial race, which quite probably
will pit Gov. Paul Patterson against the incumbent Sen.
Wayne Morse.
If the Republicans are going to win that race they
are going to have to work, and work hard, he said.
Jlc's right.
But the Republicans had better not lose sight of the
other races which will be on in 1056. The Democrats have
a whole stable of good candidates available for the state
offices which will lie opening then secretary of state,
state treasurer and attorney general.
' The Republicans will have to start "running scared",
and start soon, if they expect to keep what they've got
now, much less win offices they don't have.

This presents a challenge to

be good enough for them to remain
in these job classifications. For
those not too old to learn, skills

just intricate machine operators.
No labor union has yet done
anything to meet this new chal

their apprentice systems for the
training of journeymen. But no
union has yet come forward wih
any incentives for its members to
retrain for the good jobs that are
going begging at the lop.
The unions and the employ
ers may yet find that they have a
joint responsibility in meeting this
new demand, instead of just fight
