Transcript Senator Joseph McCarthy's name is mentioned and immediately the sparks start flying . . . public opinion is very strong on both sides. The (ion ban -Ihi- pan «/ ami dan p.,s. lo c phii Will McCarthy Comd HI RT: The question, Mr, de Toledano, eis miu know, is "Will McCarthy come lieeck .'"' de TOLEDANO: In order to discuss that question intelligently you have to start out with a few basic facts and the most basic of those is whal was McCarthy's appeal? His appeal. I would say, wei- lee | pie who had seen the Communist movement grnw in this counlrs. win. had seen the depredations of communism internationally, and wine thought tbat our gi.vcru- ment was not doing anything about it for a variety nf reasons ami among them that it was infiltrated. I think lhat. le. he- lair about it. McCarthy will nol come back if the presenl state of mind in this countT) continues and. to put it somewhat crudely, the people in llii- I'lninirv are prosperous ami apathetic. Thev have heen lulled hv the propaganda nt coexistence, the propaganda that th. Russians arc changing. If that continues, McCarthy will nol come back. If, however, the hot war — the cold war gets a little butter, McCarthy - appeal will have a function in this countrj and McCartln will he able to come back. BURT: You don't think that he'll be Iran-planted by someone like Senator MeCarran or Senator Jenner? de Toledano: Well. Senator MeCarran is now in negotiations with his Maker. I don't know about anv of the others. BURT: Eastland, I wa- referring to, by tbe way; Senator Eastland. Thanks for catching me up on that Professor Hodge-. \\ hat do you think. Professor Hodges, will McCarthy come back ? Hodges: I don't think McCarthy will come hack and lhe- reasons assigned by \lr. tie- Toledano seem to me to be some what -hurt of the cm red analysis. It's very important for us to recognize lhat, while Ihe tight goes nn against Communist infiltration, the drama nf lhe weir years, of lhe New Deal, we'll have In agree, has passed eiml I believe lh.it we hen.- more effective control over the (lommunists. Another way of getting at this and if miu will permit me to report, I'd like to -en objective!) that here is an interesting problem of publicity. I used, in working mil figures of the aineiiinl of space lhal McCarthy has heen able to command in the la-t several years, a thing called Facts on File. I think il's rather important to get the impression of Facts mi File, which contains every item nf any importance whatsoever in regard to . . . But ki.e'i : Thai costs s(>n a year. Hodges: Oh. nn. 890. I really spend money fnr this program. I think ... Combs: The) used tu sponsor me. I don't think I'll have any comment tn make except that it's an admirable publication. Hodges: All right. Now, specifically, frnm January to December, 1954, which I lake it to be the peak year of McCarthyism, looked at in terms of the number nl entries he can gel nn the new-. papers, he occupied live ami a half columns ami ihi- i- miniature type, sel -..li.l and that's ;i Int. ll is a greal registration of importance, news-wise. IH life What's the point of that. Pro- IY--ur Hodges? Hodges: Now, the poinl nf that i- from January t" July be has managed t.. get half a column. I think it shows lhat: ( 1 I w ith.nit controlling an investigating subcommittee; i 2' with the climate of politics, national and international, as it is, he has lost his capacity which is vital to McCarthy. de Toledano: Then in a wa\ you agree with me, don't you? Hodces: Yes, I go right along wilh you bul 1 don't ihink he's going In come hack because I don't see the position which he could occupy. BURT: Are you saying that be is not going to come back because be won't he able to get any more publicity, Profeasof Hodge- ? Hodges: I Ihink the publicity in the United States is an essential ingredient of politics, and you might say this is the registration of a paper in the wind. BliRT: Professor Hodges, eire you pro- McCarthy or anti-McCarthy? HODGES: I regard McCarthy as a phenomenon nf 1950 I" 1955. He would never bene been heard of. in the way lhal I have described, bad it not been for iln- circumstances. BURT: Are you for McCarthy or again-' McCarthy, then? Is that .our answer? Hodces: I am againsl McCarthy as et person. I think thai lie i- nut my ideal of an American senator. Ill 1ST: Well. Mill dislike hi- method* and him, personally, both? Hodges: I am nol interested in bin1 personally. I think that he weis made bj Mr. Roosevelt, lhe New Ileal and lhe well" laxity regarding Communists, and ' think it's a sad commentary thai lhat i> the- wen this man discovered communisl'1 in 1950, as he admitted. BURT: Now wc know that you »•- eiueiin-t McCarthy, so, Mr. Buckley, do >("' think McCarthy will come back?
