British engineers , who claimed they were spied on and obstructed for three months while working in a Romanian textile mill are back home with a new report on life.beh'ind ths iron curtain. The five went to the mill town of jassy, 6 miles from the' Russian' border, on a one-year job of setting up 250,000 pounds ($700,000) worth of British textile machinery. Let ters of complaint from the engi neers caused their .employers, the Platt Bros, engineering firm - of Manchester,to withdraw them after three months.-.. They charged that conditions in Jassy. were primitive an dthe food they- received was. unsatisfactory One of the engineers! they said, was spat on in the street. The five are: Norman Smith, 25; Harry Roe, 53; Harry Addyman; J. Hunter Mitchell; and Jack Wilson, all of Manchester. Followed By Police Roe said,. "We were followed by secret police everywhere we went and our 'interpreter' never let us out of his sight. Eventually., we became so worried that we insisted on getting home and the British consulate in Buchharest arranged 'or our firm to withdraw .us." Jtoe said the five lived in a bombed house without \yater or electric light. Their diet.-was restricted to pork, mashed potatoes and black bread. When all five con- ;racted dysentery "the mill doctor could do nothing for, us because he had no medical supplies." Roe said, "We saw bandages- Tse- ;ng taken off. people with injuries, washed and used again." / An official of the Platt firm said the decision' to withdraw the men ;o Britain--despite protests from Homanian government. officials-- 'ollowed a strong letter of complaint from the engineers. \Took up'In Conference ' ' · . The letter said "everything, we recommended first had to be dls- men hadn't finished their job, but we took the view that conditions were 'so bad they must be brought home." He- said-the firm gave ths Romanian government, agency a week's notice and withdrew the nen. The Romanian officials prc- ;ested that the decision was "unreasonable," -the Platt spokesman Smith ' declared, "They tried to keep me-back for questioning when we were leaving by telling me there .were only four seats in the plane. I went to the airport and ;ound two empty seats, I just got an the plane." - ...; FBI Returns To Footing Local FBI agents · returned to a wartime six-day week last Saturday. . . . . . The FBI is the first government agency to abandon the '-five-day week since the- end of World War II and order its. 10,000 employees-on a six-day week, last mandatory during the war. An accumulation of work in the fields of Intelligence, preparedness and defense made the step necessary, according to bureau officials. . - :, . . . Overtime 'will be paid for the extra day., The order affects the clerical workers in the 'bureaus primarily, because agents have always been on call' seven days a week. Tucson agents report the six-day week scarcely affects them, jut will affect clerical workers In the Phoenix office.' - '· " 2 Hospitalized After Accident Two persons were in St. Mary's lospital today after their automobile was In a crash along, highway SO, 3 .miles south of Oracle Junction, about 8:40 a.m..today., Merrille Button. 20, of 2532 Presidio, ; received a'fractured left leg, head cuts and abrasions.
