The Hollywood hearing, dealing with reported attempts oli Communists to gain a foothold in the film colony, were started in 1947 and recessed indefinitely. The spy probe ran through several months of this year and" resulted in several contempt citations against witnesses who refused to say whether or hot they were Communists. The Condon case broke into the headlines early this year when a subcommittee called Condon, head of the National Bureau of Standards, "one of the weakest links in our. atomic security." Condon, insisting upon his loyalty, demanded a hearing which the committee has not yet granted.

Argentina, Nfld., Nov. 0 —(UP) • Amphibious maneuvers in the navy's largest war games since World War II have proved that present Arctic issue clothing is inadequate and would result in high casualties from freezing, navy doctors said today. Moreover, they said that no clothing yet developed by the navy will protect men from freezing to death once they get -wet in below zero temperatures. When 1,700 marines hit the Newfoundland beaches yesterday in a simulated invasion preparatory to setting uo air bases for an ""attack" on "Canada and the United States, those marines who got wet received higher priority medical treatment than those with simulated bullet wounds. "Temperatures are deadlier than bullet," one doctor explained. "A man immersed in these temperatures dies rapidly because the water conducts the heal out of the body and the blood coagulates." The landings actually were made with the temperature near 50 degrees above zero, but the simulated landing temperature was 40 decrees below xero. The navy doc-tors who observed the landings said that freezing casualties would have been high.
