Johnson on the first of a series of raids on the Wilson canyon retreat, where a Soviet training camp for children is said to have been in operation for three summers.

This misdemeanor allegation is to be heard in the Redlands court of Justice of the Peace Charles G. Potter tout nothing' m-obablv will he rinne About it until a verdict has been reached in the higher court on the more serious charge. Charges against other defend ants, not named in the present superior court action, are being held over from the preliminary hearing, which was conducted recently before Judge Potter in Redlands. Two women named in the com plaint did not appear for the hearing and thl3 occasioned the first verbal tilt between the attorneys, District Attorney Jchnson, claiming that Catherine Hrushack and Sarah Rabkin had been given sufficient notice of the hearing, ordered their immediate arrest. Defense counsel finally convinced the judge that they would appear voluntarily at any fixed time. .
