The Senate would have provided quick citizenship for any enlisted alien entering the United States or its territories under military orders, regardless of length of service. The House decided that the alien must have completed fi years of honorable military service and be "otherwise qualified" before being allowed to make che United States his permanent home Vinson told the House the Army .wants the legislation because it needs the specialized services of thl men to be enlisted. He assured hi: colleagues that all the aliens "wit be hand-picked" and none of them will be Communists. Alleni Needed The Army needs them, he said, for their special knowledge ol the terrain, language, philosophies and other characteristics of the countries "we may have to deal with." He didn't name the countries but left little doubt that the enlistees come mainly from Russian- countries and will be val- tfkliie If they ever have to reenter thuse countriei with other United States troops. Rep. Tackett (D-Ark), who opposed the bill said the 2.500 aliens will be "spies" and would be of no value to the United States. Anyone who would "sell out his own country for citizenship in another country and a few dollars Isn't worth a hoot anyhow," Tackett said. The money reference was to the regular Army pay the aliens would receive while in service.- Rep. Allen (R-I11), another opponent, said he was fearful tha the aliens picked by the Army, with the approval of the Secretary State, might turn oiit to be spying or the United States. iince they don't have to become citizens, he said, there Is no wny of guaranteeing th t they won 1 turn over to their native countries the Information they pick up whil in the United States Army.
