Hays, (D-Ohia) Mr. Hays could not have made clearer, from the beginning of our work, that he Intended to frustrate the investigation to the limit of his abilities, and to attempt wholly to "whitewash" the founda- The reason for the cessation of hearings was that the attitude and conduct of the ranking minority member had made it impossible to conduct orderly hearings. * * * * * He repeatedly, from the rostrum, vilified other members of the Committee and questioned their good faith. He publicly accused the Chairman of lying and being a coward; and accused Mr. Goodwin of duplicity and of cowardice. The following excerpt from the record of the hearings which I, as Chairman, had deleted from the printed record in an effort to achieve harmony and to maintain the dignity of the Committee and the House, is illustrative of the violent and abusive remarks of Mr. Hays. |\ICSS|.' ■Ibod. the """,, ACTS FORUM NEWS, January, 1955 The Chairman: Now, the gentleman from Ohio, I am sure is not going to get anybody worked up or irritated here. If he has that in mind he might just as well subside, because the Chairman for one has made up his mind that he is not going to let any byplay get him out of temper. That would impair the usefulness of this committee. Mr. Hays: Let me say to the Chairman that I took his word and he assured me his word was good, and if the time arose when I felt that we needed somebody on the minority side that the Chairman would put somebody on. The Chairman: The conversation was that if the gentleman from Ohio and his colleague should finally decide to write a minority report, that a member of the staff would be made available to cooperate with them on that. Mr. Hays: No, that was not the agreement, because I don't want any member of this staff writing a minority report for me. The Chairman: I said cooperate. Mr. Hays: Or to cooperate either. The Chairman: And assist. That was the conversation. I do not know what the gentleman had in mind. Mr. Hays: I will say this to the gentleman, that out where I come from we have a saying that if a man double- crosses you once, that is his fault; if be doublecrosses you twice, that is your fault. I just want you to know you won't get the second opportunity. The Chairman: Even that statement is not going to provoke the Chairman, but then- is no living man can justifiably say that this Chairman — that this man who happens to be Chairman at this time — has ever doublecrossed anybody or he had failed lo keep his word. Mr. Hays: I am saying both. Tin. 1 Ji mum \n : That is all right. Mr. Hays: Is thai clear enough? There is no inference there, is there? The Chairman: That does not disturb me a particle. Mr. Hays: I know. You are pretty hard to disturb. I thought they had more guts in Tennessee. The Chairman: You are not going to provoke me. You need not worry, I have already made up my mind on that. * * * » * •Editor's Note: The following information on the military records of Representatives Hays and Reece is taken from the 1954 Congressional Directory: "Wayne L.
