With both houses in recess until Operation Alert Declared to be Very Successful Government Officials Functioning in Scattered Hideouts EMERGENCY P R E S S HEADQUARTERS, OPERATION A L E R T (AP) -President Eisenhower today declared a mock state of martial law to mobilize "the authority and resources of the federal government" in coping with the massive j problems of a nation theoret- j ically ravaged by hydrogen and atomic bombs". The President's action following a late-into-the-mght session with , top officials--was announced bv a spokesman who said it was Eisenhower's view such a step was necessary to the national interest until Congress, supposedly scattered by the mock attack, could reconvene and until normal channels of government action were re-established. The theoretical martial law declaration was taken after the imagined damage from yesterday's great sham attack on 61 major population and industrial centers had been assessed, the spokesman said. The President came out with his martial law declaration on the second day of Operation Alert 1955, the hydrogen age preparedness exercise which started yesterday -when enemy bombers supposedly rained death and ruin on the nation's capital and 60 other key cities. This was the job to which the 31 "relocated" agencies, working in borrowed college classrooms remote resort hotels and one backwoods tent ciry, applied themselves^ to today, which represented^ the start of the second week of the mock mobilization,,_,,,. Cml Defense Administrator Val Peterson told reporters Operation Alert has been "very successful"' and -tne government operating "very effectively."'

"If a person or persons had a grudge against Judge Chillingworth they would have gone up to the door and shot him. It is my personal belief we have a fiend in our midst.' Authorities leaned toward a kidnap-murder theory, and intensive checks were being made on a report that a small boat approached the judge's sand dune cottage at neighboring Manalapan. It was discovered they were missing from the cottage yesterday morning. The.FBI offered the use of its laboratories and crime-detection equipment to local authorities, bul a spokesman said there appearec to be no federal violation and no agents had been assigned to the case. No ransom notes have been found. Money in the house was untouched. Bulldozers were being used today to search the heavy- growth of sea grape and other tropical oceanside undergrowth for evidence. If the motive was revenge, officers could find no clue to it The judge was strict but fair, and for many years had handled no criminal sand, what appeared to be blood, stains on a beach walk and * smashed spotlight outside the concrete and frame beach house, indicating violence.

Another was that; lights* which customarily burned at the house overnight were not on at 4:30 a.m. Kirk also was trying to trac« the ownership of two spools of one- inch adhesive tape. One was found on the beach fa front of the hous« and the other was lying on the floor of the porch. "It appeared about a yard of tape had been torn off each" spool," Kirk told reporters. The veteran jurist wore eyeglasses but none were found, although no clothes were missing and the judge's wallet, with about $40 in it, was on a bedside table in the house where they slept lues, day night. The beds were unmade. Officers from Palm Beach, Lak« Worth, Boynton-Beach. Manalapan and Lantana scoured the area for clues while-Coast Guard and Air Force jIanes .searched the beach and ocean_ adjoining. A bloodhound was brought in but "found no footsteps to follow. 15 Feared Dead In Brazilian Air
