SECURITY (Continued from I'ag« 1) In the extreme" ttiat the latest rt- port included no figures for the Central Intelligence Agency. He declined to elaborate. A report on the security program three months ago listed 75 separations by the CIA — all but one res. ignations and none in the "subversive data" category. Yesterday's report said It was deemed "not. . . in the public interest" to announce CIA figures. / Mansfield said In an 'interview that government workers' personnel files are filled with data, much of it unevaluated, collected from both reliable and unreliable sources. He wants to know, he said, how many of the "subversive" separations from government involve persons who: ' .: ' a. May haw been fired,for some totally unrelated reason but whose file might contain unevalutted 'subversive" information. 2. May have resigned to take better job elsewhere without being aware that their personnel files containedu nevaluated Information Indicating subversion. In his letter to Johnston, Mansfield urged 'that the names of those who were actually dismissed for subversive activities or for being Communists and traitors be made known to the American people. I would also like to know who among these people were hired by both the Truman and Eisenhower .dministration."

S. government action barring Russian* from more than one-fourth of this country drew no Immediate reaction from the 'Soviet Union — but a chorus of "why not us?" queries poured in on the State Department today from many o£ .the remain- Ing American communities. In retaliation for Soviet restrictions on travel of Americans in Russia — and vowedly for security reason* — the State Department yesterday declared . 1,000 or\ so counties in 40 states off-limits to about 400 Russians working for the Soviet Embassy, the Amtorg trade agency and Russian news^ bureaus.

The Russians must stay within » SB-mile radius of both New York and Washington »nd must give at leait 48 houri notice of plans to tr*v«l elsewhere. But In any case, they are barred • from specified areas. Including 16-mile-wlde belts along much of the northern and southern boundaries of the United States. When necessary, they may go by rail or commercial airline through restricted areas to reach open points. But automobile and bus travel Is banned except over specified routes along the East Coast and to Uie open areas south and west. Applications to travel to resorts "will be considered on the merits," the department said. Protests have begun to roll In from many of the counties and the eight whole states left open to So- viet travel. Some of the complaint* went like this: Why declare Orleans Parish (County) In LQUtstau& off-limits and exempt New Orleans, except the port? Both have the same geographical boundaries. Also, people In New Jersey wanted to know why Essex County, within a 25-mile radius of New York, was declared off-limits while Sussex County, outside that area, was not. And Vermonters were wondering why they were left out. To all such queries, Department officials replied that no specific reasons could be given. The chief criteria, they said, were "reciprocity and security." Besides Vermont, states left open to tlie Russians include Arkansas, Mississippi, North. Carolina, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming and Florida.
