Rauh Jr., Washington lawyer for the CIO United Auto Workers, used the .World War n membership of Sen. Saltonstall (R- Mass) in the National Council for American-Soviet Friendship to Illustrate his criticism of a security test he sak' the Defense Department proposed last year for defense plant workers. He snid the department later dropped the idea. Rauh said the department proposed that no defense worker be given security clearance unless he certified that he never knowingly had assocnted with anyone who hiid belonged to an organization on the attorney general's list of sub-j versive organizations. . Under this requirement, Rauh said, no fellow senator of Saltonstall's could have passed the proposed, test. Through his office here Saltonstall said he had joined the .organization during the war "for the purpose of helping to provide clothing and other necessities to those in need in Russia, which was then our ally . , ." He said he resigned from the council "when at war's end it was indicated clearly this organization might be used for other and undesirable purposes." Mr, Peek is survived by :u r o sons.

Lott and his associates, suspecting Luz of being a party to the alleged plot ngainst Kubitschek, carried out a swift, bloodless coup which removed Luz and made Ramos, then president of the Senate, provisional president of the country. The army, navy, and air force ministers issued a joint statement pledging their support to Ramos. The initial limit on a state of .siege Is only 30 days. But It could ;be extended for similar periods until the end of the presidential term in January. Cafe had been expected to serve until then when he moved up from the vice presidency after Vargas committed suicide Aug. 24, 1954. The executor of a state of siege can oblige any individual to remain In a determined location or detain him in any building not used for common criminals. This could keep Cafe incommunicado in his home until KubitscheK is safely in office.
