Now that Burgess and Maclean stand revealed as spies and traitors, the British reaction is one of shock. It is like seeing a familiar face suddenly distorted, in a funhouse mirror, become ugly and menacing. "After all, Donald Maclean was one of us," a British society matron protests indignantly—by "us" meaning, of course, "the better classes.' Once having discovered treason in high places, Britons are now glancing nervously over their shoulders. The chap who borrows one's Daily Telegraph at the Carlton Club could easily be taken for Donald Maclean. And the other chap, the one in the bowler hat and pin-striped trousers who catches the 5:45 from the city every evening, bears a startling resemblance to to Burgess. What does he carry in his brief case? Top secret documents? , What the Hiss case did for America, "The Affair of the Missing Diplomats" Ls doing for Britain: giving the nation a bad case of the jitters. The parallels between Algier Hiss and Burgess and Maclean-are striking. Not- only do all three men come of good families, but they are pro- duets of the best universities, Hiss being a Harvard Law School grad, while Burgess and Maclean are both Cambridge men. • * 9 University opened up brilliant careers in foreign service for the trio, j Hiss climbing to the U.

In 1940 Donald Maclean married an American beauty, dark-eyed Me- linla Marling, the daughter of a Chicago business executive. The domestic life of Donald and Melinda was similar to that of Alger and Priscilla Hiss: struggling to maintain a suburban home and to raise a family on 312,000 a year, debating whether to buy a new car or make ihe old one do, whether one can afford a night, out in London and how Lula Thomas Services for Lula Thomas will be conducted tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. I with first judging of livestock and j to pay the bill from Fortnum and ; poultry.
