WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, 1952
UNITED STATES SENATE,
Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 10 a. m., in room P-36, the Capitol, Hon. Herbert R. O'Conor presiding.
Present: Senators O'Conor, Smith of North Carolina, Ferguson, Hendrickson, and Bricker.
Also present: J. C. Sourwine, committee counsel; Wayne H. Smithey, professional staff member; and Charles Webb, assistant to Senator Bricker.
Senator O'CONOR. The meeting will please be in order.
We are to take up Senate Joint Resolution 130, and it occurred to me that a brief announcement as to the procedure might be made. First of all, by direction of the chairman, Senator McCarran, who will be in attendance at these meetings, as well as at the request of other members of the committee, all of whom will be here as soon as they possibly can, I am presiding at the beginning of the hearing because of the request of a number of those present who have come from different parts of the country and whose convenience of course we wish to serve.
I will hear from all that can be heard at this morning's session, and of course continuing throughout the best part of the day. Because of the request of several, I might state that it is the desire of the committee to accommodate anyone who wishes to have his statement incorporated in full in the record. For that reason, we have already indicated our readiness to accept the statements in full so that they can be copied into the record even though they may not be read in full at the hearings. I merely mention that because of the time question involved.
We are very honored by the presence of the able Senator from Ohio, the sponsor of the joint resolution, Senator Bricker, and at this point I would like to ask Senator Bricker to proceed.
STATEMENT OF HON. JOHN W. BRICKER, A UNITED STATES
SENATOR FROM OHIO
Senator BRICKER. Mr. Chairman, I might say that I am happy that you have been assigned to hear this. I know you are interested. First of all, I would like to have made a part of the record at the very beginning the resolution itself. The copy that I have does not have Senator Kem or Senator McCarran's name on it. Senator Kem was overlooked when I introduced the original resolution, and Senator
