WASHINGTON Aug. if tUPu—
Senate RepubliCHii Leader Know-
iuiiu iut'l utiiuuiiCcu Wt uivtiitk
National Chairman Stephen Mit-
chell on the floor of the Semite,
Knowland attacked Mitchell for
a speech the Democratic Party of-
ficial made yesterday before the
American Bur Association Conven-
tion in Chicago. Mitchell suggested
to the, lawyers that favort'sm to a
triend had Influenced President
Elsenhower's decision on a big gov-
ernment power contract.
Mitohell called the contract to
Dixon-Yu tea utility combine a
"scandal" and noted that one, of
Mr. Elsenhower's close friend! Is
a Dlxon-Yates director. The .close
friend later was 'dentified as Golfer
Bobby Jones. Jones replied he n«ver
had spoken to Mr. Elsenhower about
the power deal and expressed doubt
that the President even knows he
is a director.
In the Senate. Knowland charged
that Mitchell’s statement — "ap-
pears to cast rejections and tends
to break down the confidence of
the country" in the President and
his office. The Cal.fornia Republi-
can challenge Mitchell to come
forward with any information that
the contrast is illegal and that un-
due influence was exerted.
Later Mitchell replied with a call
for an invest'gattori of what he
tf’-med the "hiehlv ji-reuiilar" con-
tract under the "personal order" of
the President. Mitchell said the
contract was awarded without
competitive' b'dding. J
During the Senate filibuster on
the, atomic energy bill. Democratic
Senator Albert Gore of Tennessee
also called for an inquiry.
Senator Gore and other opponents
of the contract have charged that
it will cost taxpayers $140,000,000
more than if the power were sup-
plied by the Tennessee Valley Au-
The President may comment on
the issue at hs news conference
