At 9:20 p.m. last night, Murray

was a question by both govern-

a move would be legal.

WASHINGTON -(P)- Attorney
General McGrath and Newbold
Morris, the Truman administra-
tion's corruption investigator, both
got the axe yesterday in an as-
tonishing two-act political drama.
McGrath summarily fired Mor-
ris, who had tried to delve into
the finances of McGrath and other
high officials. Less than four hours
later, President Truman announc-
ed McGrath's departure from the
TRUMAN named Federal Dis-
trict Judge James P. McGranery
of Philadelphia to be the new at-
torney general. McGranery, a
former assistant attorney general
and former Democratic member
of the House, announced in Phila-
"My job will be to restore
the faith of the American peo-
ple in the.government of the.
United States, and it will be
done completely by the Depart-
ment of Justice."
McGrath wired McGranery:
"I suggest you bring a pair of
asbestos pants with you."
TRUMAN, in announcing Mc-
Grath's departure at a news con-
ference, called it a resignation.
Asked if it was voluntary, he said
it was, but added that all resig-
nations are voluntary.
And McGrath said in a state-
ment that It was a "penalty"
for opposing Morris' efforts to
delve into the personal financial
affairs of government officials,
"I have stood up for what I be-
lieve to be great principles of per-
sonal liberty and the fundamental
rights of employes of the Federal
government," McGrath said. "I
gladly accept the penalty which
in this instance attaches to the
performance of duty."
McGRATH BECAME the sixth
member of President Truman's
cabinet who resigned "under ex-
plosive circumstances or was fired

whether Morris is reinstated as
corruption sleuth is entirely up to

To 'U' Experts
Attorney General J. Howard
McGrath's resignation from the
Truman cabinet came as no great
surprise to two University profes-
sors, who even regarded the resig-
nation as "long overdue".
Typifying the general faculty
reaction, Prof. John Reed of the
Law School, said that the news
was not too unexpected. Prof. Reed
felt the resignation was a fore-
gone conclusion after McGrath
started disagreeing with Truman
over Morris two weeks ago.
A somewhat stronger view
was held by Prof. Harold Dorr, of
the political science department,
who declared that Pres. Truman
should have fired McGrath on
Wednesday and not given him an
opportunity to resign.
