Bail wns set at $10,000 and he was held when it was no' raised immediately. Simultaneously, a second inlerin report by the Royal commission m vcstigiiling the alleged Moscow directed espionage ring was i.ssuci in Ottawa. It named four more of the 13 orig inal suspects arrested some week ago, among tliem Or. Raymond Boyer, assistant professor of chemistry at McGill University. Dr. Boyer was quoted as admitting that lie gave "full information" regarding the secret explosive known as "RDX" "for transmission to the ; Soviet Union." I n Research Work Boyer was employed by the government in research on making of .."RDX" by a process different than that previously used, and he told: 'iihlr commission 1 !' -•"-••* - i ~- . "With the information I gave, competent persons woukl be in a position to design a plant to produce the material in quantity." The report named three other I technicians—two of them McGill '• jrradna.tes--and also revealed for the first time some ot the iuner workings ol the espionage ring which a previous report had said was directed straight from Moscow Documents from the Soviet embassy revealed, the report showed that code n nines were used for the technicians. Boyer, for example, was referred to as "the Professor." Other code names included "Gray," "Lender," and "Prometheus." The four technicians were con cerncd, in their war work for the government, with explosives, test ing of projectiles, domestic com munica lions, and anti-submarine detection.

(U.I'.) —Prime Minister Omenl U. Attlco today ol'IVri-d lisdia her full independence, either inside or outside the British Kmpire. Alice told the House of Commons that a British Ministerial Mission would K<> to India with a free hand, and if India wanted to cut loose from the Umpire by free vote, Britain would help her. Three members ol the Ministerial delegation will leave by plane for India next Tuesday. They are Sir Stafford Cripps, F. W. IM hick-Lawrence, and A. V. Alexander. Attlce said the commission should seek an "interim government commanding the greatest possible support.'' Malaria Control Program Begins Rural Homes In Seven Sections Of County Will Be Sprayed A county-wide mrilariu control program begun ope: iitions Monday ill Mississippi County wlicu DDT house spraying of rural homes sol underway in seven localities.

Instead, all malaria mosquito breeding places in to^ns will be treated once a week with oil which kills moscpnto larvae or vvig- glctails. This procedure, called lar- viciding is the best control measure known, when effectively done it completely eliminates the malaria mosquilo. Larvickling work will begin ubont April 15. The sparse population and the (real on charges of communicating 1 nature of malaria mosquito breed- munitions information to Soviet Russia "prejudicial to the safety" of Canada, and with conspiring with Boyer and others to give Russia information concerning mnni- ( tions of war. Any possible connection between Rose and Boyer was not immediately made clear. Rose was sci/.cd just before midnight last night by Royal Canadian mounted police in Ottawa, and was taken by car to Montreal to appear in court. Harold Samuel Gcrson. who formerly was secretary and chief of Ihe records division of the ammunition production branch of the Department of Munitions and Supply, was charged in thc report with having furnished the Soviet embassy a copy of a secret report on testing of certain projectiles in England. Sought Money Gcrson. who was coded in thc Soviet documents as "Gray," wa:- mentioned as having solicited $7.000 from the Russians to establish himself as consulting geological engineer in Ottawa whenever his employment by the government should end. Presumably this was his request for payment for services rendered I Thc report dirt not show whether he was paid. Thc report named also squadro! leader Matt Simons Nightingale, a McGiil University graduate in engineering, and a Bell Telephone Co. employe before and after his three years of RCAP service from 1912 to 1945. j The commission said Nightingale was concerned mainly during his RCAF service with "land lines communications on both the east, and west coasts" of Canada, and that he also worked the Big Gander, Nfld.. airport projeet. His code name in thc Soviet embassy was "Leader." thc report showed, alleging that he supplied information regarding communications to the espionage ring. Thc fourth man named was Dr. David Shugnr, Polish born physicist who held n Ph-D. degree from McGill. and who was engaged on research into anti-submarine Cc- tcction during his service in Jhc Royal Canadian navy In 19«. g places make larvicidinp itn- )ractical in rural sections of the ounty anrt DDT house spraying s being tiscd as a substitute con- ro] measure, Mr. Cooper stated. DDT does not completely eliminate he malaria mosquito as does lar- 'iciding. but it does kill all mosqui- .oes which romc in contact with t. The ceilings and walls inside houses and outdoor privies and the walls and screens of porches will be sprayed with DDT. These favorite resting places for the malaria mosquito which has a habit of resting in a cool, ouict place nF- ter having taken a blood meal. By having walls sprayed witli DDT many mosquitoes which may have bitten a person with malaria will killed before- they can bite well person and give them the disease. Mr u Cooper states that DD'l as it is sprayed on the walls in thi malaria control program will fcill mosquitoes and other insects which rest on if within a period of foil.' months alter it has been applied. Householders will be notified when their house i$ Io be sprayed and asked to have their houses prepared for spraying. Paintinc. papering and house cleaning should be done before hand so that the DDT may be allowed Io remain on the walls .throughout the mosquilo season. All furniture and clothing should be moved from Ihc walls and placed in the center of the room. Foodstuffs should tje put away and all fires put out before the .spray crcu , enters. •My colleagues are going to India with the intention of using their utmost endeavors to help them obtain freedom as speedily and fully as possible." Alllec said during dcbni." on an India central government bill. "If India elecl.s for independence, in our view she has the right do so. It, will be for us to help mnke the transition as smooth and easy as possible." Attlec referred repeatedly to the need for India working out her mn problems and reaching a united decision on the matter of inde- ndence. He said he did not be- ieve Indian leaders would full to •calizc the need for settlement of nitiorily problems, but "we cannot illou- minorities to veto advances the majority, nor dictate iiow India .should overcome these difficulties." 'I hope that the statesmanship of British India and princely India will be able to wort out a solution of the problem of bringing together In one great unity these desarate states," he sa(d. Attlee said the ministerial mission to India woukl be given a free hand in discussions leading to "the development of India into a completely self-governing nation." "India herself must choose as to what will be her future constitution and position in the world," he said. "I hope that the Indian people may elect to reman within th c British commonwealth." Remarking that thc "tide of na- ionalism is running very fast in and indeed all over Asia." ust rc- :tcd by what happens elsewhere in Asia." Whatever course India chooses, he said, "It must be by her own free will. The British commonwealth tot bound together by chains xtcrnal compulsion. It is a free as- ociation of free peoples." Then ho added that if on the ither hand India should choose independence; she had the right to Io so. "The tide °f nationalism whicl seemed at one time to be canalizct imong a comparatively small pro xn-tion of India—namely, the eclu catert classes—has tended to spread wider and wider." Attlec continued. "It spread to those wonderful soldiers who have done great service in the war. Whatever divisions there may be. there is an underlying demand among all the Indian people."
