(UP)—The Arkansas Supreme Court today upheld the constitutionality of an Interstate agreement and ordered a Missouri parolee, returned for a violation in Arkansas of his parole. Reversing the Pulaski Circuit Court, the supreme court ordered Byron Edward Apple returned to Jefferson City, Mo. From North Little Rock to complete a four-year sentence. Apple had argued that a 1937 Arkansas Act denied him the due proces.; of law guaranteed by the constitution.

"We conclude that the slates." the opinion slid, "have established a valid method of procuring the return of a particular class of fugitive which u independent, but not. exclusive, of Ihe regular extradi- ^*n procedure." ^fhe supreme court also said the trial court misconstrued the law when it said that Apple was denied the right to a writ of habeas corpus.

Sergei Tulpanov propaganda chief of Ihe Soviet military administration in Germany, speaking at a youlh rally at Soviet-occupied Zeitz, Saxony. Last September, Tulpanov denounced "fascist" America as "the enemy of all Europeans." The Atomic energy Commission announced that the test had been made. For security reasons, it said the date of Ihe test is not being announced. The test was carried out secretly in the remote and heavily-guarded Pacific island under conditions in contrast with great publicity given the previous tests at the Island of Bikini. Here Is the brief statement by the Atomic Energy Commission on the new test: •/• , "There has been a test of an mission on Eniwetok atoll" in the Marshall Islands. For security reasons the date of the test is not being announced. "A classified report of Ihe test results is boliiR made lo the joint ' committee on atomic energy of the Congress. Shrouded In Secrecy "The test was conducted under full security restrictions of the Atomic Energy Act of 1946. and pursuant to the provisions of the act. the public issuance of further information concerning the test, Is not permissible at present." Thus it was not known whether the new test was the long-planned deep water test of a bomb, or a new experiment overland. .The commission announced last July 22 that the Eniwetok atoll had been set aside as 3 proving ground in the Pacific for the test of atomic weapons. On Dec. 1, the commission, announced that construction had bee\ started on the installations necessary for carrying out the test of the atomic weapons. Staffing and organization of the proving grounds was announced on Dec. 22 and eight days later the commission announced that a de- fansive ring had been thrown around the grounds.
