Firemen estimated total loss would exceed one million dollars. No one was reported killed or injured. The cause o{ the explosion was unknown. Then you'd better know, among other things, that the New York Yankees won the 1952 World Series, that Tennessee Williams wrote "A Streetcar Named Desire" and that the earth is the third of the planets in order of distance Jrom the • sun. These are some of the questions, culled at random, from a new booklet which Is required reading for would-bft ambassadors. It's the State Department's latest revision of sample questions from the examination given to foreign service applicants, and the Government Printing Office will sell you a copy for 15 cents. You'll, learn from this 30-page booklet that an aspiring diplomat is expected to know a lot more than the correct number,of buttons on a pair of spats. Even before he gets to take a stiff oval and physical examination he must pass three general and three special written quizzes testing his knowledge of a whole range of subjects from history and economics to modejn languages and the facts of everyday life. He's given, for instance, 20 minutes to "explain and evaluate the various means by which the Federal Reserve Board can influence the volume of business activity in the United States." And he has an hour to give his reasons for agreeing or disagreeing with this point of view: "What is being assailed today as the 'intellectual anarchy' of 19th century Western thought, the absence of a single unifying creed, was in fact its chief glory." Many Easy Many of the questions, of course, are more down to earth—if not necessarily easy for everybody to answer. See how you'd score on these six typical questions—answers given below: 1. Which of these countries has no seacoast—Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru or Uruguay? 2. The function of the carburetor on an automobile is what? 3. Who was the first Republican nominee for the presidency? 4. Which of the following is not , breed of dairy cattle—Jersey, Guernsey, Holstein, Hereford or Brown Swiss? 5. What does "senatorial courtesy" mean? 6. What composer Is associated with the whole-tone scale? If you're discouraged at this point, remember there's another way to become an ambassador: Be a Clare Bootne Luce—or, in earlier days, a Perle Mesta—and you can make the grade without an examination. Otherwise you'll do well to memorize these answers to the questions above:: 1. Bolivia. 2. To mix gasoline with air. 3. John C, Fremont in 1856. 4. Hereford. 5. The President consults with senators of his party on appointments from their state. . Debussy.

Robert Gladnick, an ex-Communist and now an APL organizer In Ohio and Kentucky, said yesterday he was part of a prewar Red campaign to build up the party's military resources. He told the House Committee on Un-American Activities that Irving Charles Velson, a New York iron worker, headed the party's military program, and "was to become secretary of defense, come the revolution." Velson took the stand later and called Gladnick's story "kind of fantastic." Velson wouldn't answer questions about any Communist connections, past or present. Glndnick, organizer for the APL International Ladles Garment Workers Union, said Communists in the 1930s were encouraged to enter the armed forces to learn to hnnrtle weapons in anticipation of revolt. His own job, Gladnick said, was to distribute Communist literature among men and officers of the fleet. He said pretty girls were used on both coasts to hand out material when the fleet was In. Members of the Young Communist League, he said, infiltrated the prewar Citizens Military Training Corps to prepare for eventual entry into the National Guard of the armed forces. Gladnick said Velson used the party name "Charlie Wilson," and was in charge of this work. The House committee came out of its third day of New York hearings with an armload of names given by co-operative ex-communists as people they had known in the party. The committee got 41 names from Oladnlck, 24 names from Mrs. Abe Burrows, wife of the comedian, « names from Mrs, Dorothy K. Futm, a Brooklyn K. schoolteacher.
