Rjr?gACE EIGHT ' CAlK.r OOimiKE US Shows Alarm / Over Spy Activity Boruch Urges Greater Military Participation In Atomic Controls BY JOHN t. STEEI.E United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 5—Reports of new soviet spy activities today spurred senate demands for greater military participation In the nation's atomic energy program, They gained impe'lus after Bernar-i Baruch told Senate members of the Joint Atomic Energy Committee that he was deeply disturbed by leaks of atomic secrets. : Baruch suggested that Moscow may have revived the atom spy ring which Canadian authorities unebv'ered last year. Later, in a closed committee session, he said there were Indications of Russian espionage even as Soviet delegates to the United Nations wre urging early world disarmament. Some senators felt Baruch's trs- timony supported demands that military men gel a more active role In .protecting this country's atomic secrets. They pointed in his expressed "astonishment" Dial Congress set up a fivc-niim atomic control commission which specifically barre<j the military. Other senators, however, maintained that Baruch's stand simply highlighted*.a "planned attempt" to give the army control of the atomic program. They noted these developments: 1. Reports that the Army nnd Navy nlan a joint command to supervise use of atomic and other mass destruction weapons with Maj. Gen. telte R. Groves In charge. He headed the Army's wartime atomic program. . 2. Baruch's strong endorsement of Maj. Gen. Thomas P. Parrel], Droves' former deputy, for the job of, general manager ot the Atomic Energy Commission. The post now Is tentatively assigned to 37-year- old Carrcll Wilson, n civilian. 3. plans of the congressional atomic committee to appoint a former army associate of Groves to an important staff post. Several senators doubted there would be any move to amend the civilan control features of the Atomic Energy Act. Rather, they looked for continued demands for military-type security measures, military men In key positions subordinate to the civilian commission ItFcli, and army leadership In developing new atomic weapons. Baruch himself pleaded that the military .be given n stronger voice in direction of the atomic program, asserting that the primary use of the new force Is in military fields. He added that he would have "liked to retain" Groves on the atomic commission. ' But Barmri's remarks about "leaks" iii atomic secrets formed the. center of committee Interest. He said he believed the Soviets already had obtained secrets from operations of the Canadian spy ring uncovered year. Lumbermen's Spokesman Pessimistic WASHfNOTON, Feb. 5—(UP) — Joseph T. King, counsel for the National Retail Lumber Dealers Association, said today portal pay suits are the spearhead for back wage litigation that will bankrupt industry. "If the congress merely outlaws portal-to-portal suits today, it will be obliged to outlaw other classes of suits tomorrow or. the next dav " King told a House Judiciary subcommittee. The group is considering legislation to limit portal pay suits to cases in which bad faith of the employer could be shown. The portal pay suits ar c based on an Inadequate definition of "work week" in the wage-hour act, King said. Should they be upheld by the courts, unions w lli se i zc o n other vague definitions to Institute other types of back wage suits, he added.

And a good thing, Bearding a lion was nothing to compare, Carey marched into a room full of embattled landladies, sat himself down in front of the Senate Banking Committee, and announced that owners of this nation's flats .were getting rich on OPA rents.

Financier Gives $500,000 To Restore Bombed Cathedral WASHINGTON, Feb. 5.—(UP) — The British Embassy announced oday that Thomas W. Lament, New York financier, has contributed $500,000 to the fund for restoration of bomb-blasted Canterbury Cathedral In England. Lament,, i n a letter to the Arch- jlshnp of Canterbury, said the gift '•as "an evidence of the good will :hat countless Americans bear to- vards the British people." "We Americans, of all others," ie v,T9lc, "can never forget that n the darkest days of 1040 and 1941 It was only British courage and the blind faith of free men, undismayed by disaster, that saved the world from the evil of the Teutonic onslaught." The archbishop acknowledged the gift "with sometlng more than gratitude." He told Lamont "It does honor to you, sir, nnd doos honor also to those spiritual realities In which the true lite of our nations and of the fellowship between them consists." .Lament's gift, p hi s $323,000 rai-- ed In Great Britain, left the restoration fund onlv $372,000 short of its $1,200,000 goal.

"Now ladles," he pleaded, "no violence, please." The landladies reKictantly let go of hero Carey and he got out of there while the getting was good. The net result in my cranium was confusion. Somebody's trying to stuff a wad of old rent receipts down the public's throat. After a week of conscientious listening to the evidence I .f.tiil can't name the villain. Numerous spokesmen of the landladies, such as Herbert U. Nelson, executive vice-president of the 'National Association of Real Estate Hoard, insist that the OPA's figures are phoney and the housing shortage Is nearly over. "In about a year from now we're going to be looking' for tenants," the elderly Nelson testikcd. He said that by next month, tBe shortages In building supplies would be history and new houses would be going up at record rates. He urged that In the meantime the landlords be given a 15 per cent rent increase. "Though many of them will not avail themselves of it," he addi!d. "They, too. are looking forward to the time when tenants are going to be scarce." Came then labor leader Carey to deny every last thing Nelson said Navy Arranges Cruises for Young Arkansans Young Arkansans by the scores will take cruises to Central America this Spring and Summer—with all expenses paid, in fact, they will be paid to take trips to Cuba and Panama Canal Zone. And, officials say, there Is room left for others who have not yet applied for reservations aboard U. S. Navy ships. Tiiese two-week trips are open for Arkansans between 17 and 40 who are qualified for the Inactive branch of the Naval Reserve.

No other and add a few charges of his own. He recommended that rents be controlled as is for at least the next year and a half. "The housing shortage Is worse today than ever before," he testified. "There is simply no rental housing available In America today.' The sHinaion Is getting no Better fast, he continued, because the landlords seem to believe In the theory that the fewer the hospitals, the fewer people will get sick. That started it. Sen, McCarthy said this i didn't make sense to him. The I landladies finished it and some day I hope to introduce Mr. 'Nelson tf. Us. Carey.
