" Miss Baxter, granddaughter of architect Frank Lloyd Wri»ht complained that her husband'/al- mucfe had caused her to become nervous and rundown. She declined to say whether recent publicity about her—inclndin- her cigar-smoking—was in any way involved.

The House committee recom mended that the next Congress undertake such an investigation, stating in Its report: "Communist tactics being used in Korea are identical to those followed at Katyn." There was no indication, however, that the committee had evidence of new or recent mistreatment .of 0. N. troops or of Incidents not reported a year or more ago in (he Korea conllict. The U N.

The Soviet Embassy had no comment on She report, other lhan to point to a Soviet nole of last Feb- ru.iry declining an invitation for Russian witnesses to appear before the committee. The nole asserted that, ii Russian commission (AM.) cauxmt had attributed the massacre to Hitlerite criminals" and said the congressional Investigation was designed to slander the USSR. Both Russia and Nazi permany accused the other of rcspolisibility for the mass killings of the 15,000 Polish officers and intellectuals in the forests nenr Smolensk.
