TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUKIER NEWS YAGEFfttl Soviet Embassy Staff In Australia Gets Ship For Return to Russia CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Acting Foreign Minister Sir Philip McBride announced today the 51 Russians of the closed-down Soviet Embassy here will have the exclusive run of the 20,256-ton British ship New Australia for their trip back home. In a press statement, McBride said the party of embassy officials .and their families will be flown Thursday in a chartered plane from Canberra to Perth, western Australia, to board the vessel at the nearby port city of Fremantle. With the way clear for the Russians to leave, McBride said it now is expected "that the departure of the Australian Embassy staff from Moscow will not be further delayed." Since Russia broke off relations with this country last week over the Petrov case, the Soviet Foreign Office had been holding up exit visas for Charge d'affaires Brian Hill and seven others, including two children at the small LITTLE ROCK OR—A list of 48 Australian Embassy in Moscow, rental apartment projects con- The Russians said their departure structed in Arkansas under Feder- was "conditional on developments al Housing Administration-insured in Australia," Study Papers' Russia broke off relations last Marvin Wade. week over the case of Vladimir *T V (_•**• K/w^*. uuw vwwv « — » - ———. 7 v <c4,^v»- OUAVl JLJ.V- OJVJ^^Vy UO JL J.iJ. i AAiV^kJ Petrov, who fled his job as Soviet on each of the projects will be in- third secretary an<jl handed over vestigated "very thoroughly" this to authorities here a mass of documents he claimed uncovered a, vast Red spy ring in Australia.

The Australians granted him political asylum and are sifting the purporte'd spy papers he had turned'over. The Russians also claimed the Australians kidnaped Mrs. Petrov, who was permitted to rejoin her husband at the last moment before a plane was to Soviet guard. The Australians rejected both claims. As all available air space already was taken up by tourists leaving for the European summer, the Russians asked for sea passage home. The New Australia, recently used to bring immigrants to Australia, will carry no other passengers on the trip to Europe, McBride said. Injured Motorist Commits Suicide BUFFALO, Okla.

Wade said he expects FHA files year, adding: "I do expect some red faces in Arkansas, but nothing of a major scandal." Apartment houses built under FHA-insured loans' and the agency's home repair program are being investigated in Washington by the Senate Banking Committee. It has been charged in the committee hearings that some builders over the nation took advantage loans exceeding the actual cost of building apartment projects. May Not Be Illegal Wade listed all FHA-insured loans made from 1946 through 1950. He emphasized that he expected irregularities to be found in only part of the list of 48 Arkansas projects, and said that the irregularities are not necessarily illegal. .•His report listed the amount of each insured loan and the amount by which the actual project cost exceeded the loan—according to FHA records. Wade said that in some cases, FHA figures on actual costs probably will not agree with actual costs shown in the builders' records. Of the list, only one—a Fort Smith project — has retired its mortgage and 16 of the projects in mortgage foreclosures. The projects, date of FHA commitments, amount of mortgage and "actual" costs" above mortgage amount, include: Jefferson Apartments, Magnolia, April 14, 1947, $52,000, $11,777.
