The White House, in announcing last night the creation of the new Internal Security Division, said President Eisenhower will nominate William F. Tompkins of Maplewood, N.J., as an assistant attorney general in charge of the unit. Tompkins ,as TJ.S. attorney for New Jersey since last June, has been fighting gambling and racketeering. He is 41. The Internal Security Division, carved from the present Criminal Division, presumably will handle all c2) 5ogn8$mf oStreasouo espionage, sabotage, defense plant security, loyalty of federal em- ployes and allied matters, Officials said the division will "centralize and fix responsibility" within the department for the handling of national security cases. Follows Criticism Creation of the new unit came a month after the Army, Navy and Air Force set up a joint program aimed at keeping the services free of security risks. Both actions followed criticism by Sen. McCarthy (R—Wis) of the way the government has handled alleged subversives. However, the actions were not taken in fpecific response to McCarthy's criticism. Atty. Gen. Brownell has said the Internal Security Division, while prosecuting cases developed by the FBI. will have the particu- leged subversives. However, the actions were not taken in specific response to McCarthy's criticism. Atty. Gen. Brownell has said the Internal Security Division, while prosecuting cases developed by the FBI, will have the particular duty of guarding the "constitutional freedoms" of all suspects. The division will take over prosecution of cases under the Smith Act. which makes it a crime to conspire to teach and advocate the overthrow of the government by force: cases before the Subversive Activities Control Board, which polices the registration of Communist-f r o n t organizations, and cases involving denaturalization and deportation of subversives. The White House said Eisenhower will nominate as Tompkins' successor in New Jersey Raymond Del Tufo Jr., 34, of Newark, who has been Tompkins' first assistant since last August. L. F.

He said he had "only a couple of extra men" fro m the secret ranks on duty at the Fredericksburg ceremony, but that the city had a force of about 60 police officers on hand at the monument grounds and in the vicinity. Mary Ball Washington College supplied about the same number of auxiliary police women. The Eisenhowers were at the monument grounds less than 15 minutes and there were no noticeable signs of any extraordinary precautions. Only the usual single car of Secret Service agents had accompanied the President on the drive from Richmond, Va., where h eand the First Lady had attended church services during the morning. The Eisenhowers flew to Richmond from Washington. After placing the wreath at Fredericksburg, Eisenhower made a brief talk to his rain-soaked audience from an elevated platform.

WV-Ten-yetir- old Darlene Roaten, who doesn't swim, supported herself with a small piece of cork for more than three hours yesterday while the current swept her 10 miles down the Mississippi River. Her father, J. S. Roaten. meanwhile, swam more than two hours to rescue his wife and their son Bobby. 8. after they and Darlene had stepped off an .underwater sandbar into the swift Mississippi current. Roaten threw them pieces of old life jackets and leaped from their 17-foot motorboat and swam to the rescue of his family. He left another son, Michael. 4. in the boat with the motor idling. The boat began drifting and Roaten swam after it for more than two hours before he regained it. Then he used the boat to pick up his wife and Bobby but Darlene had drifted out of sight. She was picked up just before dark by the towboat Zephyr out of St. Louis. A crewman saw her bobbing along in the current. A witness said the piece of cork supporting her was about half the size of a cigar box. The family was on a pleasure cruise in a 17-foot inboard motorboat. The craft struck a sandbar near an island. All except Michael got out to push the boat off the bar. the water water was only six inches deep where the boat ran aground. "All of a sudden there was no sand, and we were in the water." said Mrs. Roaten after her rescue. "All three of us went different ways." Miss U. of A. Selected FAYETTEVILLE (fP)— Miss Patty McDonald, 20-year-old junior from Weldon, Ark., is the 1954 Miss University of Arkansas.

MCCARTHY HOT SPRINGS UP)— Members of j the 'Arkansas Associated Press As- I sociation elected Joe McGee, editor of the Conway Log Cabin Democrat, president and voted to meet at Hot Springs again in 1955 at a one-day meeting here yesterday. (Continued from Page 1) ton <D-Mo> that it was an effort to sweep the charges "under the rug." Symington said he for one insisted the inquiry be held in a "goldfish bowl." Sen. Potter (R-Mich) retorted there was no effort to sweep the matter under the rug but there was no point in "hearing the same story told 10 times in 10 different ways." 13th Day for Stevens Chairman Mundt. indicating he would go along with the Army, said he felt no procedure should be imposed over objections from principals. Mundt said if the hearings continue as originally scheduled, it would take at least "three or four weeks more." Once the argument over trimming down the hearings was laid aside. Roy M. Cohn. general counsel to McCarthy's subcommittee, began questioning* Stevens now in his 13th day on the witness stand. Cohn demanded that Stevens give the committee the names of officials named in an inspector general's report as having had a hand in the promotion and honorable discharge for Peress. Peress. a New York dentist, was honorably discharged from the Army last winter after refusing to answer questions from McCarthy fis to whether lie had had Communist affiliations. Ray H. Jenkins, special counsel for the inquiry committee, protested that the Peress case was "irrelevant" to the charges ex- chnnged by Army officials and McCarthy. These turn on Army contentions that McCarthy and his aides brought improper pressures for preferred treatment for Pvt. G. Dnvid Schinc, wealthy Now Yorker who was an unpaid consultant to the McCarthy subcommittee before he was drafted last fall. IVViCarthy counter-charges that the Army tried to stop his investigation of Communists In the service and tried to use Schlne as a "hostage" for that purpose. At Jenkins' protest against going into the Peress matter, McCarthy argued that it went to "the heart and soul" of his counter-charges. He said his investigations of the to finding individual Communists as to learning who "covered, protected and coddled" them, "There is no reason on God's earth why those names should be kept secret fit this t i m e," McCarthy asserted.
