MONDAY. DECEMBER 2T, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE ^RK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Does Ladejinsky Firing Mean Major US Policy Change? Sen. Humphries Says Congress Should Probe Ouster of Official WASHINGTON (AP) —' Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) says Congress should determine-whether the firing of a U. S. land reform expert in Japan "is a tip-off of a major change in United States policy" in Judd Upholds Refugee Law And Defends McLeod By LEWIS GULICK WASHINGTON—Rep. Walter (D-Pa) today praised immigration checks in the refugee law and defended R. W. Scott McLeod, whose administration or the act has been criticized by others. Walter is second ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee arid helped to write the McCarran-Walter Basic Immigration Law. The Judiciary Committee's chairman-to-be, Rep. Celler (R- NYt, returned, from a five-week overseas tour this month with sharp criticism for McLeod, the State Department's security chief. "A good law," Celler said, "has been prostituted by the insane, arbitrary and savage administration thcrcnf by Mr. Scott McLeod." Walter ;iiud in an interview that attacks on McLeod for his administration of the slow-moving special refugee program are "entirely unwarranted and unjustified." Best Interests The Pennsylvanian, who had a hand in drafting the 1953 act, said McLeod is "just administering the law" and declared that restrictions in it are "safeguarding the best interests of the United States." The law, signed Aug. 7, 1953, authorizes admission to this country of 214,000 refugees outside the regular immigration quotas during the three years ending Dec. 31, 1956. Latest figures from the Slate Department show that, as of Dec. 17, only 16,081 immigration visas had been Issued under the program, and only.a fraction of these visa-holders have actually arrived in the United States. The State Department has said the chief reason for (he slow start was the need to set up machinery, including a security screening sy.stenj . Walter said many of those arrived or on their way have sponsors, as required under the law, among relatives already in this country and have jobs and housing waiting for them. Sponsors must certify that employment and shelter is available. Many still waiting to get in, he said, are unable to do so because they have no sponsors here. And the reason for this, he declared, is that there are not jobs for them this field. -•* Humphrey said last night the ouster of Wolf Ladejinsky as U. S. agricultural attache in Tokyo raises a question "whether or not more is behind this than just a persoftnel action." He urged a congressional investigation, suggesting the action might reflect a policy change | "about which we haven't been in-^ ! formed." I The firing of Ladejinsky, a na! live of Russia closely identified with Gen. Douglas MacArlhur's land reform program in Japan, was' announced last week by Secretary of Agriculture Benson. Security, Technical Grounds Ladejinsky was removed on security and technical grounds after his file was reviewed when control of his post was shifted from the State to the Agriculture Department. Humphrey, in a statement, cited past United States support for some land reform programs in the Far East and added: "There has been an apparent reluctance on the part of our government to maintain its leadership in this field and to do anything to implement our announced policies." Humphrey said he had asked Benson .and Secretary of State Dulles whether Ladejinsky's firing has policy significance. Ladejinsky, he said, "has been a symbol in Asia of America's concern for the people . .-. and it certainly seems unwise to destroy a symbol of hope to people we are trying to win to the side of democracy." State Department officials have indicated Ladejinsky may get another assignment within their department, which is keeping him on the payroll. Benson says he may have another post in the Agriculture Department if he meets security standards. Ladejinsky, 55, came to the United States from Russia in 1922. In announcing his ouster, the Agriculture Department noted he might be subject to pressure through relatives still living in Russia. It also cited his work, in 1931, for a Russian trading company and a trip to Russia in 1939. Membership in two Communist front organizations also was listed. Ladejinsky has denied this, saying much of his overseas work was aimed at combatting the spread of communism. The department also said il felt ils attache' in Japan should be more expert in production and marketing techniques. at a time when unemployment is a domestic problem. The Pennsylvanian defended the security checks which have been criticized as the biggest hold up in the program.
