"The Soviets could no longer launch an attack without noticeable advance preparation.'' The report conceded that the free world situation in Asia was less rosy, but it added: "Allied reverses in Indochina aro not legitimate grounds for defeatism: on lane contrary they are caused for. renewed and stronger efforts to build an effoclivf system of collective security in that patt of the world.

Other porte4 no trades wuons their By JAMES MARLOV/ WASHINGTON I/PI Promoters have admitted making millions in 'windfalls" out of mortgages on apartments built with government- insured lo&ns. Did they commit a prime and, if so, can they be prosecuted? There is no simple answer ling a "windfall" profit is not, by itself, a crime. This much can bs said in a general way: Jt would be. a crime if the pro moter. in order to get the "wind fall," deliberately deceived thrf government on his application for & government-backed loan. vcn s,o, prosecution would depend on when it happened. If it was. uefore 1P3J, Uwre coul'l be no prosecution Ther<s couW be if it happened since then. The reason: one kind of Jaw covering this field ended in 19&0. Another w, similar to it, beg4n to tfl WSft a naa» |q,r, pre-1951 fraud, the government would havo had to prosecute within three years. It's too late now. Most of the ••windfall" cases brought to light in tho Senate Banking Committfce's fiery hearings occurred before 1051. It's beginning 'now on case* that hap pened since then. But the government could mova in another direction ths>t is, in the tax field against , promoters who got "windfalls," whether 01 not they committed any fraud in obtaining the- guaranteed loan.
