MOilHWtM AKANSAI I1MH, taf*tktv«e, My I'. *» --Authenticity Of Cables Up For Investigation China Lobby Inquiry Opens In Washington; Departments Active Washington - W) An investigation of 23 cablegrams telling of efforts by Chinese Nationalist diplomats to influence United States Far Eastern policy has been undertaken by the Justice Department. The State Department, announcing the probe yesterday, said It would be limited to determining whether the cables were authentic. The Justice Department ·aid it is "cooperating." Senator.Morse (R-Orc) made public the series of cablegrams last April 10 and demanded a congressional investigation of the "Chins Lobby," the name he applied to those urging more American help for the Chinese Nationalist government of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. They were signed with the names of Chen Chi- mai. minister-counselor at the Chinese Embassy, and Bt\g. Gen. Peter T. K. Pee, military attache. The two men. in a joint statement last April 11, said the cables, addressed to Chiang at his Formosa headquarters, were sent by Lt. Gen. P. T. Mow, who has since b«n dismissed ns Chinese Air F o r c e procurement officer in Washington. The cables, as released by Morse · in the Congressional Record, told of contacts with Ren. Robert A. Taft of Ohio and other Republican leaders and termed Secretary of I State Dean Acheson "prejudiced j against China." One said, "There is'no ehance for a change in China policy as long as Acheson is -in power." PRACTICE ATOM DEFENSE IN SEOUL "OPERATION MUSHROOM" In Seoul, Korei, ihowi Pfc. Richard J.

It called for "corrective action" --meaning dismissal or new assignments--for possibly more than 100 NPA employes. In some cases, the commission said, veterans' [ preference in hiring was ignored. The commission ruled that all future NPA hiring must be referred for prior approval to the Department of Commerce, the parent organization of the emergency production agency. Commerce Department and NPA officials; questioned on t h e charges, said they will carry out the commission's orders completely and will cooperate fully in matters of hiring. They did not deny that abuses had occurred, but said they were in 1951 when NPA was striving to build a staff quickly to deal with a mushrooming load of work in administering priority and allocation controls. Many of the improper appointments, they said, were of day-today consultants or commodity specialists in the "WAE" category --meaning, paid only "when actually employed." In many of the latler cases the onoyear term of appointment has expired, officials said, and the appointees have left the agency.

Another convict, Franklin Cling- cnteel, 17, was involved in the attempt. His calls that he was stuck in the narrow pipe, five feet j underground, brought guards to the prison yard manhole which the two convicts had hoped was the way to freedom.
