' Top Pentagon Of fitial Gets Call In Probe Heniiings Summons Fenlon To Outline Handling Of Cases WASHINGTON W - Senate in vestigators sought today-a precise! explanation of how the Army .will handle security" risk cases under the terms, of a new directive.••" Sen. Hennings (D-Mo) of the Senate subcommittee oh constitutional rights called. Jerome D Fenton, Defense'Department security officer, for questioning on ramifications of the order, issued 10 days ago. Fenton told the subcommittee last week details of the order were not then completely clear to him. In general the directive instructs that an effort be' made to spol potentialsecurity risks before they are drafted for Army service, li found, they are exempted from in duction—and thus spared the stigma of a less than honorable dis charge for preserve conduct. Accused Persons Seldom Told Chairman Philip Young of the Civil Service Commission testified yesterday that three of every four persons fired by the government in cases involving -."serious questions of security" never are told they are suspected risks. They embrace a group, he said who are fired for cause—in some cases for drunkenness — anc against whom security risk accu sations indicating possible sub version also have been made. Young, who keeps the 'administration's official box score of se curity risk firings and resignations said he combines into a single tota the.number- ousted -as downrigh' security risks arid .those' fired .for nonrisk reasons^ but'-against whom there also is a backlog of.other derogatory information. ' '''•'.' Hennings'has denounced the prac lice as a misleading "numbers game." Young's newest box score listed firings of 3,685 persons between May 28,' 1953, (when the program began) and last Sept. 30. This was 99 more than were listed in the period through June 30. ' 531 Never Formally Charged He said 704 persons were "terminated because of security ques- .ions within the purview" of Pres- dent Eisenhower's ' directive, in the 12 months ended Sept. 30. Of them, he said, 531 were never charged formally with being security risks or notified they were suspected, while being dropped on other grounds. He said about the same percentage could be applied fairly to the entire 3,685 cases. He said he doesn't claim that all were security risks, and that: about the.only time he uses that term And Wife Leave U; S. Court Gen.
