Qta;jgf trick J. Hurley 'accused the£.£tat'c Department to^lay of a'pSlicj? ,of "appeasement* 1 both to Commuhism and "Imperialism".. KB called" It a "cowardly 'surrender" of the principles for: which' world war 2 was fought. · i Denounclng' the secret concessions to Russia at the 1P45 Yalta conference, the former ambassador to China declared: · "The postwar success of Russia Js not due to Russia's strength but to the weakness of American foreign policy." l Hurley was" testifying at the Senate Inquiry into the dismissal nf Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Liuntmstw Policy He came before the Senate Armed Sen-fees and Ko'reign 'Relations committees with a long prepared statement which lambasted U. S. foreign policy in general and Secretary of State Acheson individually. At one point, he. spoke of Acheson as expressing "both moral and general had physical fear". The white-haired little more than completed his statement when the committees recessed u n t i l ' 9 a. m. (EST) tomorrow. But he already .had thrown so much harsh language that U was plain HR would be in for'a vigorous session with administration Senators when he'returns to the witness chair for the'questlon-and- answer-phase, of his-testimony.

') 1. tors he does not care to return before them for rebuttal of'-the testimony from administration officials. His letter said President Truman had silenced "pertinent witnesses" and kept the Inquiry pane' from getting the "full facts" on his relief from his Far Eastern commands. ! 2. Senator Knowian'd (R-Calif) made a request that the panel seek such portions of a diary kept by the late Secretary of Defense Forrestal as miglifbc pertinent to the inqniry. Dhiry Kept Secret He said he understood a part of the diary "is still being held at the While House" and that other parts have been turned ove"r tn Forrestal'.s heirs. Forrestal plunged to his death from .a tower at the Bethcsda, Md., hospital in 1919 after resigning his cabinet post. Mac Arthur's decision against returning to the witness chair Increased prospects for a quick windup of the inquiry. After Hurley, the Senators plan to hear only two more witnesses. They are Maj. Gen. Emmet (Ronie) O'Donncll, former Far Eastern Air Force leader, nnd Maj. Gen. David C. Barr, one-time head of a military mission to China.

Premier Orders Complete Iranian ConirolOfOil TEHRAN, Iran, June 20 (? -Premier "Mohammed Mossadegh ordered his · government to take full authority over Anglo-Iranian oil 1 operations today, and Britain called Home Its peace mission. Mossadegh promised to keep'oil flowing from nationalized installations of the company, in which the British government holds- a controlling interest. He acted after a five-hour cabinet meeting. Deputy Premier Hussein Fatimi said Iran would not carry out threats of extreme nationalists to "shut the valves" or the Abadan refinery the world's largest. Foreign Secretary Herbert Morrison conferred "with military leaders and said Britain will--protect its nationals.In Iran if the government here fails.to do so. The British Mission ordered home consisted of. ; ])oth Anglo-Iranian and government representatives. Its negotiations Mth the Iranians broku down last night. In the British House of Commons, Winston Churchill asked if the government .had made up its mind wh "-or to evacuate several thousand Birtons working for Anglo Iranian*. Morrison declined to say on the ground such a statement would be foolish and risky. ' The Iranian cabinet acted afte.* considering an appeal from t hi. United States to restudy the lat* est Britisli offer of payment. Iran's rejection of that offer brought the breakup of negotiations last night. foposes r A 515 million request -'for funds for expansion of White Sands Proving Ground was -made today by the Department o f - t h e Army.
