The indictment was the first mass prosecution of Communists since the June 4 Supreme Court ruling upholding constitutionality of the Smith Act, under which the eleven top Red leaders were convicted in 1949. The 21 were indicated for el- legedly taking part in the same conspiracy for which the eleven ta) were convicted. * U. S. Attorney Irving H. Saypol indicated here yesterday there would be further prosecutions. The special federal grand jury which \ndicated the 21 is continuing its ivork. In addition, the 21 were accused of plotting to take the party underground to carry out the conspiracy in case of "emergency." Judge Samuel Kaufman set June 29 as the date for the defendants to plead to the indictment. O First Team Still Free In Washington, Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson was scheduled , to hear arguments in behalf of the convicted eleven today.

The 21 named in the indictment could get sentences up to a maximum of five years in prison and fines of $10,000 upon conviction.

The disease makes pigs sneeze and give their faces a "dished in" look by causing certain facial bones to disintegrate. The disease, infectious atrophic rhinitis, was almost unheard of several years ago. The AVMA said it now is becoming a serious menace to the nation's swine industry. It added a statement: "Young animals are its principal victims, though it may strike swine of any age. It eats away profits by stopping growth and generally making a herd unthrifty, with pneumonia sometimes occurring as a complication. "Control measures include the careful purchase of breeding stock so as to avoid bringing carriers into the herd. As an additional precaution, the new purchases should be kept in quartine for a few weeks. Sows and their pigs should be earmarked identically so the trouble can be traced back if it sh.of/& up," END OF A SHIPBOARD ROMANCE— Farting is such sweet sorrow, David Van Gelderen. age 4. seems to say as he gallantly bids farewell to Marian Potts. 3. of Lovell.
