SATURDAY, MSfTMOBl W, PAGE SEYZH CIA Quiet on Spy Claims Of 2 American. Veterans By DANIEL 1)* MJCE FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Officials of the U. S. Central Intelligence Agency had no comment yesterday on two young American veterans' story of spying for the Russians in order to spy for the West. The pair, Gregory J. Lima, 30, New York City, and Theo K. Hollie, 28, of Los Angeles, said they gave information to the Soviets "to serve our country by infiltrating Russian intelligence." • They charged the CIA strung them along for three months after they offered to work as double agents then turned them down. They accused the CIA of "gross malfeasance" because it did not hire them and said they have asked to testify against the intelligence organization at a congressional hearing. The pair told newsmen they, got J6.000 from the Russians for their espionage activities. Navy Veteran Hollie. a Navy veteran, said they got the idea of becoming double agents last year after Lima was "fired from a civilian job with the Army department in West Germany in 1953 as a 'security risk.' " "Some of the charges against him were that he had tried to get an acquaintance to join the American Labor party and that a 'Dear Comrade' letter had once come to his address from the New York Daily Worker," Hollie said. "We decided that if we could do something positive and dramatic against communism, it would make Greg a first-class citizen again and remove 'security risk' from his record. It would, of course, serve our country. "So we schemed to hoodwink the Soviets .into hiring us as spies. then have the CIA use us thereafter." The two said their missions for the Soviets ranged from a report on a U. S. military intelligence school at Oberammergau. Germany. to a visit to Belgium's largest arms factory. Be^an Investigation They said they went to the CIA Jpst May I and proposed that they work as double agents to learn more about the Soviet spy apparatus. The CIA began an investigation, they said, but told them on Aug. 31. "We don't know you anymore." They charged the CIA has debts they said they incurred on instructions of the agency. "All we got from CIA was S6 per diem during June, July and August, while we were asked to be at CIA's disposal." Hollie said. They said they set up the Al- made of steel girders to test the flight control system of the new XF8U-1 supersonic day fighter. Hooked up to it are the latest electronic "brains" to help in determining the Navy fighters reactions to movements of the ailerons, elevator and rudder.

Some Progress Reported in Tax Equalization LITTLE ROCK (fi ~ Out of some 50 county .school, supervisors meeting here yesterday, about half reported substantial progress in equalizing property assessments while the rest said little or nothing was being done in their counties toward equalization. The 1955 Legislature directed that assessments should be equalized at 20 per ceni of market value throughout the state. The supervisors, from about two- thirds of the counties in the state, generally opposed placing a 30-mill limitation on school district taxation in connection with equalization of assessments. The 30-mill proposal is on the 1956 general election ballot. There is no limit at present to school taxation rates.
