W)—A Swedish Socialist newspaper said today the spy trial of a Swedish Navy officer has proved that correspondents of the Soviet News Agency Tass are spies in the service of Moscow. Victory Anlssiinov, Tass correspondent accused in the trial of having been an accomplice to the confessed spy, engineer Ernst Hilding Andersson, left Sweden last April. Commenting on this, the newspaper Morgonlldningen said: "It is regrettable that Anlssimov was not arrested. It is well known that Tass correspondents are espionage agents in all countries. Their status as Journalists gives them possibilities to move freely and Inconspicuously and gather information. It is difficult to draw the line between legitimate and it- legitimate journalism, but Amssi- mov has certainly exploited every possibility."
