New legal safeguards against possible subversion and cspjonage were urged in a report by the subcommittee on a probe conducted under the chairmanship of Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis). It said Communists in defense plants are "in a position to acquire vital information concerning our military secrets and our military effectiveness," and added: "The employment of Communists In defense facilities, even though they are r\it actually working on classified (secret) material, is a clear and present danger to our national security," Two Recommendations Calling the removal of Communists from defnn.se plants of "para- [ mount importance" to the nation's | security, the report made these | two recommendations: j 1. That Congress authorize gov- i eminent agencies to bar persons believed to be disposed to commit sabotage, espionage or other subversion from defense plants, even j though thr plants have no classified contracts. The report observed that the Senate passed a bill of this type last Auif. 17 but that no action was taken by the House. 2. That the Defense Department "prcparn adequate security regulations preventing the mploynu-nt of and ordering the removal of Communists in establishments producing materials under the national defense program regardless of whether the employment, is in connection with classified work." The subcommittee said there Ls now no law nor any Defense Department regulation under which Communists may be ousted from defense plants if they are employed on nonsrcret work. It said, however, that Us hearings furnished "sufficient proof of the desperate need for proper legislation and adequate security regulations to protect this country from any possibility of espionage or sabotage' in vital defense establishments." Seek Control "The subcommittee inquiry clearly revealed," the report said.' Sec HKDS on raffC 10 will be utilized for expansion of the housing quarters. Bids will be opened in the administration building of Chickasaw Courts on Feb. 10 at 2 o'clock. Mr. Brooks was of the opinion that construction time would run from 270 to 300 days, and perhaps less. Applicants Plentiful Chickasaw Courts, Mr. Brooks stated, remains full and aplications are "piling; up" in his of/ice. He said the additional units could easily be filed if available right now. BHA, he pointed out, has contracted with the U. S. Department of Commerce's Census Bureau to begin a housing and income census of the city within the net few days. The census, he said, will provide information or. Which BHA will determine eligibility of applicants for ll$ projects. Information derived from this census, he said, will update results of a similar 'census conducted in 1950.

Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark> has already said he will ask the Senate Banking Committee to conduct a st.udy of the market boom. Fulbright, who will hear! the committee, .said the actual start will await the time when Democrats take formal control of the committee machinery, probably in a few days. Sparkman said the Sen a to-Hou.se Economic Committee probably could not get around to investigating the stock market climb until late In February or in March. I)linger Feared "I hope Sen. Fulbright goes ahead first with the Banking Committee study," said Sparkman, also a member of that group. 'The .sharp market Increase is tiot necessarily a boom and bust proposition but it may be a dangerous trend that could be a warning." Both Sparkman and Flanders said they saw little danger of a major market crash, such as occurred in 1929. They said federal margin requirements and supervision of securities, which were not in effect in 1920, should help pre vent any crash, Flanders, a member of the .tax- writing Senate Finance Committee as well as the economic group, said the bidding up of stocks may prove Mint n "Irea-sury theory of relief from double taxation on dividends was wrong."

The Ministry said more than 300 bombs were dropped by the raiders —38 LA11 fighter-bombers and 24 TU2 light bombers escorted by four MIG .swcptwinsf jet fighters. Most of the bombs fell into the sea, the Ministry added. 100 Sorties In addition to two planes shot down, the Ministry said two others were heavily damaged by antiaircraft fire from the islands, 200 miles north of Formosa. The Reds flew more than 100 sorties, with the first attacks coming in four waves. The Ministry made no mention of Nationalist fighter opposition. A considerable number of civilian casualties wa.s reported. The Ministry said more than 10 houses were destroyed. The Red planes, attacking between 6:50 a.m. and 2 p.m., dropped more than 100 bombs. One residential area was set aflame but antiaircraft fire disturbed the bombers' aim and most of the explosives fell into the .sea.
