Mr. Brownell's Other Tasks

This article presents information on the efforts by Chief Judge George H. Moore of the United States District Court for investigation of corruption in St. Louis, Missouri. The Attorney General Herbert Brownell's department authorized the overloaded United States District Attorney, Harry Richards, to employ special assistants only after Senator William Langer and Senator Estes Kefauver showed immediate interest in Judge Moore's charge that two grand juries had been kept idle for months. The Justice Department's lack of interest is especially striking since in mid-May one of the grand juries brought in 15 indictments.
