Ufi — Amazing Joe Tallarico, apparently un harmed after being trapped nearly nine hours in the chilly depths o the Patuxent River, said today "I'm ready to go down again right away." The 35-year-old Navy diver walked unassisted last night from a decompression chamber where he had spent four hours after being lifted from the floor of the river. 120 feet down. Tallarico, a former Chicagoan with 10 years' experience as a diver, was caught below when his lines became fouled on an anchor attached to a test mine he had gone down to recover. Work In Relays Fifteen other Navy divers worked in relays to free him from waters off the naval ordnance laboratory test facility about 70 miles southeast of Washington. Afterwards, Tallarico told newsmen: "The toughest part was the'cold. After I had been down four hours I got disgusted—r thought I never would come up again. "Did I say any prayers? Plenty of them." •••.-.•• Tallarico dived from a Navy launch yesterday morning for a routine job. Requiring not more than 18 minutes. He had been in the water about 15 minutes when he reported his air hose fouled around the anchor. Boatswains Mate William G. Fisher of Williamsport, Pa., went down and found Tallarico literally pinned to the mine. "I struggled for almost 30 min utes. and I had almost worked Tallarico's lines clear when the tide grabbed me and pulled me away," Fisher said. "It was an awful feeling to-have to come to the surface without him." Other divers went down, one after the other, but could not even reach Tallarico in the now-rushing tide. '•' . ' • Finally Chief Gunners Mate Gray Renegar managed to get to Tallarico and the slow process ot bringing him to the surface—along with the mine on which he was snagged—began. Brough't Up Slowly Because Tallarico was under terrible water compression so long, doctors on the rescue launch warned that bringing him up immediately would kill him: So despite the cold and long exposure, the lifting operation halted every dozen feet or so to give his body a chance to adjust. The task continued under the boat's spotlights after darkness fell. Finally, at 7 p.m., Joe came to the surface. The boat raced ashore.

As the four-day meeting ended ast night, Secretary of .Welfare' ?o)som told the 1,800 delegates President Eisenhower was ready to ask Congress for "a broadened and improved" program of federal aid for school construction. A few minutes earlier, the con- 'erence had greeted with ringing applause a statement that the delegates had approved a slepped-up aid program by more than 2-1. The leaders of the 600,000-mem- >er National Education Assn. hailed this report and five others as "nothing short of marvelous."! John Buford of Mount Vcrnon, II., the NEA president, labeled the conference "one of the greatest ever held." . The conference report agreed] vith Folsom's statement that the aid should be distributed among all he states and that the states should decide how it should be spent.

Minutes after entering the chamber Tallarico was able to raise his head, smile and wave at his wife peering in at him through a porthole. Navy physicians were astonished. One attendant said, "Frankly, I wouldn't have given a plugged nickel for his life." Dr. Moffitt Holler, senior medical officer of the Navy's experimental diving unit, said Tallarico appeared to be in "excellent condition!-" "I; am quite sure he would noi have survived had he not been ex Iremcly robust and had he not re mained very calm throughout,' Holler said. WASHINGTON — (INS) — Sen. Matthew M. Neely (D-W.Va.) said today a Senate probe Has shown thai many "smeared" government workers actually were "as free of Communist taint as George Washington." Neely is a member of the Senate Civil Service subcommittee which has been sifting figures on government ouslers for security reasons. The loyalty of government workers was an issue' in the 3954 elections. The unit heard Thursday that only "342 persons or less than 1C per cent of the 3.241 dismissed workers listed in security slatis tics, actually were fired under the Eisenhower security order.

' Hadlick quoted a While House press secrelary as announcing on Oct. 23, 1953 that 1.456 federal em- ployes had been dismissed for security reasons only. Neely declared that in view of Ihe new breakdown, "I don't think there is anything left of the numbers game." He continued: "No one believes there ever was anything but a hoax. It was a political hoax and one of the worst in history. It threw a shadow over the reputa- lions of a multitude of innocent people who were as free of Communist taint as George Washington."
