Former NSA Man's Defection Called 'Security Laxity' WASHINGTON <AP) — Chairman Edwin E. Willis of the House Committee on Un-American Activities says the defection of a 'ormer researcli analyst points up the need for Senate action on a bill lo stiffen personnel rules at the National Security Agency. The Louisiana Democrat made the appeal Monday after Ihe Soviet government newspaper Iz- vestia published a letter by Victor Norris Hamilton, who described himself as a former em- ploye of the supersecret agency and said he sought political asylum in the Soviet Union because ne became disillusioned with life in America. Hamilton's defection, Willis said, spotlights "security laxity" the committee uncovered in the agency and "confirms the conclusions drawn by the committee in 1%2 after its extensive investigation of NSA security practices." The committee, Willis said, was 'shocked by some of the fact's it had uncovered; that NSA officials •lad, for years, run this most sensitive intelligence agency without proper regard for Department of 3cfense personnel security regulations, and had been making personnel appointments without adequate background investigations." Hamilton, describing himself as an American citizen of Arab descent, wrote that coded instructions of Middle East governments to their delegations at the United Nations were received 'at the State Department and decoded before the delegations got them. The Defense Department con firmed Hamilton had been employed by the agency from June 13, 1957, until June 3, 1959. It said that while he "had no knowledge of U.S. codes," he probably had access to classified information. Engagemenf Sandra Gdrdzina To Wed R.

Savoy Voters Give Nod To Chapter 90 Fund Shift Savoy's appropriation l»ti March of $2,500 in Chapter M undz (or work on Center R«*d .n that town now can be diverted egally to the ic-calkd toad on Borden Mountain, That was determined last night when the beat attended special town meeting in years, including some who attempted to vote without authority, approved the con- roversial transfe by a standing vote of 47 to 32. Count dwUelfed The first count was by a show of hands, but the result was chal- enged on the ground that some of those responding were not registered voters, although they were property owners in Savoy. That situation was corrected when Moderator Jeddie P. Brooks called for a standing vole. Two weeks ago, at another special town meeting called for the same purpose, voters encountered a preliminary injunction restraining that meeting from acting on the issue. The temporary order was issued by Chief Justice G Joseph Tauro of the Superior Courl at the request of. 13 petitioners represented by Ally. Andrew J Dilk of Adams. At a subsequenl hearing in Suffolk County Court in Boston on July 15, Superior Court Judge Edmund R. Dewing cleared the way for town meeting action by refusing to grant a permanent injunction. The controversy originated when Selectman Adolph Lagowsk: complained that ha colleagues Chairman Clinton Tillon and Sam uel Davis, had diverted the annual town meeting appropriation Mr. Tillon explained that the transfer of funds would give Savoy residents an approximate annua tax relief of $3,500 because of tlie revenue that will accrue from tlie 5100,000 relay tower being buil by the -Western Union Telegraph Co. on Borden Mountain, that the transfer had the approval of the Public Works. Department, and the County Commissioners agreed providing the voters favored the transfer at a special town meeting. The work on Adams Road is considered necauary to provide CC*M to the rkdio relay site in he Savoy Mountain State Forest. Adams The location is required by pub- c necessity and convenience, ccording to an indenture be- ween the commonwealth of Mas- ichusetts and the Western Union The relay station will be . of a transcontinental system used for commercial pur- •,, the United States Air orce, and other Defense Departments.

Darby in Mount Washington, and from there to points in New York State. This oute conforms to the request of lie Air Force to insure safety rom enemy attack of possible target areas.
