Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune ONE OF SEVEN Judge Orders Army To Reinstate Employee WASHINGTON (UP)-A federal judge Wednesday ordered the Army to reinstate an employe it dfsmissed from its Signal Corps laboratories at Ft. Monmouth, N.J., as a security risk in 1954. But the judge, Alexander Holtzoff. refused to issue a similar order on behalf of six other dismissed employes. Abe Krash, attorney for all seven of the workers, promptly told newsmen he would appeal Holtzoff's decision to the J.S. Court of Appeals. . Government attorney Donald MacGuineas said the Justice Department also probably would ap- peal the reinstatement of the one worker, Herman P. Schoenwetter. The seven were among 25 ousted by the Army from Ft. Monmouth following a 1953-54 investigation of alleged Communist infiltration by a Senate subcommittee headed by the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.). Judge Holtzoff based his decision in the case of Schoenwetter on the i fact that he held a non-sensitive , job as clerk at the time of his j dismissal—a fact which went unchallenged by the government. But he rejected the claim of the other six that the Army procedures in finding them security risks violated their constitutional rights.

Zelk was sentenced to three years and Tardos to eighteen months, both for "inciting against the people's democratic regime," the broadcast said.' The Budapest radio announcement was the first official Hungarian confirmation that the four writers had been tried. It gav« no further details on the trial or the sentencing.

But something went wrong, Recchia told the Senate Rackets Committee, and he wound up as low bidder after all. In his. frantic] effort to get off the spot, he said, he even tried to back out of the contract. Finally, he said, he subcontracted the job to his g a n g s t e r- endorsed rival. As- soon as Recchia of New Hyde Park, N.Y., had finished his testimony, the other bidder, Carmen DeCabia, of Hicksville, N.Y., took the witness chair and denied the charges. Recchia, who was sitting nearby, promptly called DeCabia "a goddamn liar." Committee Chairman John L. McClellan (D-Ark.) lectured Recchia about his language and said "somebody is simply perjuring himself before this committee. I don't know who it is." Expert Wants Satellite For Christmas WASHINGTON fUP>—A rocket scientist proposed Wednesday that Americans chip in to buy a glow- in-the-darfc satellite which would shine over earth as a "symbol of peace -and goodwill" during Uie Christmas season. The suggestion came from Dr. S. Fred Singer, University of Maryland astrophysicist, who said he got the idea from 'John Me- Connell, Bakersyille, N.C., weekly newspaper publisher. Singer said the satellite, which would glow like a Christmas tree bulb in the night sky, would cost about $2,000 while the rocket to launch it would cost about one million dollars. He proposed that the project be financed by. public contributions and that it be coupled with a new program of aid to underprivileged people all over the world. WASHINGTON (UP)—Secretary of State John Foster Dulles told Americans Wednesday they may have to make sacrifices to surpass Russia's military achievements and "retain the bulk of our freedoms." But he told the 1,200 members of the National Defense Executive Reserve he was confident that the contest- between communism and the Western nations ultimately "can be brought to an end with freedom throughout the world." Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, Army chief of staff, told the meeting that .fear -of "mutual suicide" would' prevent both the United States and the Soviet Union from deliberately touching off an atomic World War III. But he predicted the Soviet Union would use its recent suc- Mecca Man Killed In Crash Near Rockville ROCKVILLE, Ind.

Another speaker, Commerce Secretary Sinclair Weeks, said the quack medicine" like the Bran nan plan and accepting "all-out government controls" were not the answer to the problem of "inadequate farm income." The governor said the answer is "developing our family farms into full-fledged industrial operations."
