The captain did not disclose the action taken against them but said they "received appropriate punishment." A captain's mast is a prelim inary judgment by a Naval offi cer of a violation of military justice. If the captain finds the offense is not grave enough to warrant a court martial he can mete out1 mild punishment.

Ban on OPS News Releases Under Probe WASHINGTON Office of Price Stabilization (OPL) officials Friday were looking into an order barring on OPS division's employes from giving newsmen information not cleared by higher-ups.

The directive was distributed Thursday precisely one year after President Truman ordered withdrawal of a general order to keep certain information from newsmen. The 1951 order prohibiting OPS employes throughout the country from making public any informa tion that "might cause embarrass ment to OPS" stirred a storm of protest in the Senate and else- where. Truman cancelled it, say ing it "might be misconstrued." Deals With Prices. Thursday's directive, in the form of an interoffice memorandum, went to workers in the OPS division which deals with prices of rubber, chemicals, drugs and fuels. It said all proposed action on price regulations "must be considered confidential" until formally released by OPS to the press.

The OPS Office of Public Information, which prepares such releases, said the order was issued without its prior knowledge or approval. W. W. McClanahan acting director of the Public Information Office, said OPS officials will consider what action will be taken on the memorandum. In a statement, McClanahan said: No Change in Policy.

"There has been no change in policy, which Jias been to encour-age the complete public dissemi-nation of news or agency action." E. E. Fogle, who issued the order to the division which he heads, was not reached for comment. His memorandum said he had noted that information given out about his division was "not only prema- iuie dui. in some instances, correct." in- Plan Pacific Defense Setup for $356,000 in oTolen ooid TORONTO ftf) Police Datrols fanned out along the U.
