Ri.rrmrvn.i.E WEDNESDAY, DECEIVER is, isss Gouzenko Interview Try Delayed No Headway Made with Canadians WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate spy hunters resume public hearings today after a surprise announcement that efforts to interview former Soviet clerk Jgor Gouzenko are being dropped temporarily. Gouzenko in 1945 tipped off authorities to a Soviet spy ring in Canada with connections in the United States. Chairman Jenner (R-Ind) of the Senate internal security subcommittee has been trying: to arrange an interview with the former Soviet clerk, now a naturalized Canadian, seeking leads on any Communists who still may be in the U.S. government. But Robert Morris, subcommittee counsel, said the group so far has been unable'to make any finat arrangements with the Canadian government. Today's hearing of the subcommittee was called to put into the record additional information from the Justice Department about the distribution of FBI reports on several former federal employes. A Senate investigations subcommittee "task force" report to the Senate yesterday named \Vhite as "a notorious Communist agent" plotting against the government while high in its councils. The report was written by Sen, , Mundt (R-SD), allegmg that White i and "four important Communist accomplices" helped in 1943 and, 1944 to engineer the wartime agreement in which this country provided her own supply of occupation currency for the invasion of Germany. Mundt said evidence developed at hearings showed that the decision to hand over the plates "was at least in part, and perhaps primarily the result of pressure on high officials of our Treasury Department by a Communist spy ring" in the government. His report added: "The success of the Russians in this fantastic episode was made easy by the fact that ... not only had a notorious Communist agent, Harry Dexter White, worked his way up to the high position but . . . he had at least four important Communist accomplices working with him in his plots." The report said at one time there was 225 million dollars worth of the currency in circulation in excess of what Congress had authorized to be printed. Officials have said that while this was not a direct cost to the United States, resulting: inflation increased expenses charged to the U.S. government. The report named as White'e "accomplices" V. Frank Cog, Nathan Gregory Silvennaster, William Ludwig Ullmann and Harold Glasser. It said all of them Slight Tax Aid Due for Child Care WASHINGTON (fl—Treasury and congressional staff experts today were reported agreed on a restricted tax cut for some parents who must pay child care expenses while they work. The proposed relief is so slight, however, — a maximum $300 deduction with strict limitations — it seems certain to run into strong demands by lawmakers for more liberal provisions. More than 25 bills already are pending to give a tax break to mil- iions of working mothers, widows, widowers and, others. Informed sources said the staff proposal on child care expenses would provide a tax cut only to single heads of household — widows, widowers, separated parents, and others It would not give relief to married couples who hire baby sitters while both husband and wife work, as proposed by some members of Congress,. Also, the proposal would apply only to workers who have children under 7. The theory is that caring for school-age children is not so much a problem as caring for younger ones.

"It is suicide for elected officials to reject all gifts," Douglas told the Junior Assn. of Commerce and Industry yesterday.

The others, he said, generally are sent to the Walter Reed (Army) or Bethesda (Navy) hospitals. "I will admit that occasionally I will take home a few Florida grapefruit or something of the sort," Douglas said. "Thus far, this has kept me out of trouble.
