SATURDAY, MAY 28, I9« BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB THE NATION TODAY US. Central Intelligence Agency Offers Haven in U.S. to Those Who Assist American Agents j,. By James Marlon- to* WASHINGTON, May 28. M>|—Successful spies are Ihc ones who live to tell the tale. They also want to live afler they've told it. A caught-spy always looks like a bit, of a chump, and certainly he's lost his usefulness, i[ not his lile. Congress now not only 1ms marie it easier for foreigners to live after spying to this country, but has even enouragcd them to spy. No niUIon, ol course, ever calls its* — , own spies spies. They're Intelligence agents. It's the oilier nation's agents who are spies So when someone In this country is suspected of spying for Russia, (here's excitement about U. Naturally, nothing is ever sairi about the spying we're doing in. or on, Russia, although yon can be sure we're doing it. The U. S. lias a highly secret or' " called the Central Intelligence Agency, headed by Rear Admiral R. H. IWIenkoeUev. It's the master eye for all U. S. intelligence or spying. Give Assurance »f Safely The CIA has a special problem In gatheiing information about Iron Curtain countries, where the secret police can make life short anrt unpleasant for anyone caught dickering with Hie U. S. for example: A high official of nn Iron Country hates the Communists, has im- V»rtant information to give the U. W. and would gladly give H if. wiving given it, he knew he' could be safe in the U. S. and never have to return to his own country. But without such assurance ol safety, he's held buck by tear ol what will happen to him if it's discovered he's made contact with CIA agents. His first contact will be lib last, if he can't escape beyond the reach of the secret police. Say this official was a Russian ambassador, in a country outside Russia. He'd probably be loaded down with prize infornialioii. Yet, through fear, his mouth is sealed. Congress Co-operates How could he be made to feel safe, if he gave the information? How could he be encouraged to give it? The CIA talked it over with Congress and this was the plan worked out: In any one year the CIA. doing its own choosing, can get 100 aliens and their families into the U. S.—and the U. S. immigration laws which might bar other aliens for 'various reasons, wouldn't apply to them at all. .In short, CIA informants could .•:be rewarded with safety in Amer- U?<i. Bath houses of Congress 1 —the iWtouse on March 7, the Senate yesterday—passed bills approving this • There are a couple of very ininoi differences in the bills. Both houses are expected to iron them out quickly so the President can sign the whole thing Into law. Official of USDA Addresses Rice Millers Meeting HOT SPRINGS. Ark..
