Department officials said "mal- administration." charges are being readied against William W. Remington similar to those handed yesterday to Michael E. Lee. j^ Both Remington and Lee arc ^10,000-a-year officials of the department's Office of international Trade, Both have denied Congressional charges that they are poor security risks; both have refused to quit, as requested by Secretary of Commerce Sawyer. I.e* lo Be Tired Lee was notified yesterday that he will be fired unless he can refute. the maladministration accusation within five days. He retorted in a statement that the accusation was a subterfuge; that Sawyer had yielded to an "ultimatum" by some senators that the department would be investigated unless Lee was discharged. Sawyer has said that his action against the two men is grounded *'In the interest of good administra- tion'' rather than loyalty. Details Are Kefusrd While the department refused to give any details about the charge against Lee, its basis already had been indicated by Assistant Secretary of Commerce Thomas C- Bin is- dell, Lee's direct boss. Blaisdell told a Congressional committee .bacfc in February, it was learned, that there had been complaints by ''certain people who were disciplined by Mr. Loe for not, doing their work properly. Mr. Lee L<> a hard taskmaster. He works his people hard." x •i* Lee, 42 years old and a. Commerce • ^r>epartment ( employee fnr fivc'.yenr.v T siiid In hLi .statement: ' i "I bear the secretary no ill will' for his;, action because I believe he was motivated by an understandable desire to save his department the trouble ''of a Congressional investigation. ; "I Wish It Were Possible 1 .' "I wish it were possible for. me to accomodate htm by resigning. I cannot do so because a matter of principle lins been raised which affects not only myself but every other government employee." He recalled, that Sawyer and Blaisdell themselves, among other top department officials, had in the past "either ~"',rt;cly or under oath affirmed complete confidence in my ability, competence and loyalty." Blaisdell told the Congressional • Rroup in February that "the FBI has investigated Mr. Lee very carefully. There has been no reason found lo question Mr. Lee's loyalty. Also we have looked into Mr. Lee's competence and we regard him as one of Uic most competent people we have." U.S. Develops Atomic Field Artillery Shells «>• MAX HOV1) WASHINGTON, June 2.

Use Against Troops Thai means they cnn be used against troops in the field as well as against industrial targets. Reports of the new weapons ate giving Atlantic Pact military planners new confidence that Western Europe can be made secure against possible aggression without bankrupting the United Stales and Us Allies, Atlantic Pact planners do not regard tactical atomic weapons as u substitute for stronger conventional ground and air forces in Western Europe, or for stronger air and naval forces in the United States. They believe that strengthened ground nnd tactical air forces in Europe are essential to force the Russian army, In case it attacks to concentrate in mass formation nnd thus be vulnerable to atmic weapons. Void Must Be Fillet! Atlantic Pact military planners nave feared that the absence of real military strength In Wcsteri Europe may invite Soviet attack lew years from now—unless the volt is filled in the meantime. They say that an attacking Rus sinn army could defend iUelt" ngafus atomic attack by dispersion, unles strong Allied ground and air force were present to force it to conccn (rate. Russian soldiers spaced 10 yards apart, limy say, could \vi\\ entirely across Europe without pro hibitive losses if faced only by atomic weapons, The combination of tactical atomic weapons and stronger conventional forces arc expected to lick this problem.
