A continuing search for Communists in government and a close scrutiny of the security and power programs of the Eisenhower administration are among main ones. Sen. Russell (D-Ga). incoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said today he will probably revive the Preparedness subcommittee for a critical look at the armed forces' purchasing program and other activities. He said It also would be the logical one to examine the proposed 403,000-man cut in the armed forces. More Current Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala) said he thinks the Republicans spent too much time ."digging up old corpses" and Democrats "will keep their investigations more current." The Senate Rules Committee, from which Sen. Jenner (R-Ind) is about to step down as chairman, is working on a suggested new code of "fair play" rules for Investigations. In the House. Rep. Hugh Scott (R-Pa) has announced he also will propose such a code. Sen. McClellan (D-Ark) who will take over the Investigations subcommittee chairmanship from Sen. McCarthy (R-Wis). says this group will abolish "one-man hearings," which have been a subject of deep controversy He said he hopes his committee, the Senate Internal Security subcommittee and the House Un-American Activities Committee can avoid duplication in probes of communism.

One Vote Majority When 14 new senators have been sworn in, the Senate's membership will Include 48 Democrats, 47 Republicans and Sen. Morse (Ind- Ore). Despite some absentees on both sides. Sen. George (D-Ga) was named majority leader by a Democratic caucus yesterday. Knowland said he assumes that as Republican leader, he will suggest to the Democrats that specific bilsl to carry out the President's program be taken up as they come along. However, the Democrats will fix their own priorities on legislation Both parties delayed assignment of members to Senate committees at least until next week, when the Democrats are expected to put Morse on at least one major group Morse, who bolted the GOP during the 1952 preisdential race, has indicated he might run for re-election in 1956 as a Democrat. Sen. Byrd tD-Va), incoming chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said he is going along with the President against any tax cuts at this session.

NOTICE THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE SHAREHOLDERS OF THE BLYTHEVILLE FEDERAL SAVINGS and LOAN ASSOCIATION WILL BE HELD IN THE OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY, 124 WEST ASH STREET, BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, 2:00 P.M. THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1955. W. . SECRETARY plans for investigations pending a shakeup of, the staff of the Un- American Activities Committee, of which he becomes chairman. The outgoing chairman, Rep. Velde (R - Ill), reportedly has turned down resignations offered by two staff members; Robert L. Kunzig, chief committee counsel, and Raphael I. NiXon, research director. Neither they nor Velde could be immediately reached for comment. Staff Cuts Promittd Walter said in an interview that if Kunzig and Nixon don't submit their resignations to him, "I'll ask for them." He promised cuts in the committee's 47-man staff. One subject certain to undergo investigation is the Dixon-Yates contract, under which the government would buy privately generated electric power to be fed Into the public-power lines of the Ten- Judiciary subcommilte to be headed by Sen. Kefauver (D-Tenn), a bitter foe of the project, has already had a preliminary look at the project. Sen. Olin D. Johnston (D-SC) has announced plans to investigate the Eisenhower administration's announcements of security risk firings. Johnston calls it "a numbers racket that misleads more than it informs." A report Monday listed 8,008 persons dropped as security risks in a period of 16 months. Of the total, 2,096 were said to have "subversive data" in their files. "I hope to show," Johnston said, "whether these figures represent a deliberate attempt to magnify also will "look into evidence that qa 'rhaati eH sriid yneotuitsiu points in the direction of partisanship" to discredit prior Democratic administrations. Red Paper Says US Forces Filled With Drug Addic Soviet Publication Claims Heavy Dope Addiction in Far East MOSCOW to—Red Star declared today the U.S. Army and Navy are filled with drug addicts—especially units stationed in the Far East. The Soviet armed forces newspaper quoted figures it claims to have taken from the U.S. newspapers Army Times and Navy Times concerning an alleged rise in narcotics addiction among members of the U.S. armed forces. "All the facU are interesting." Red Star said. "They testify to the extremely low moral level of American military men at home as well as abroad. A policy of aggression and a military psychosis is producing its results. "Narcotlcism is a natural and characteristic feature for the American army — an army of ravlshers and murderers — and it is useless for American commanders to pretend they could change the situation." Red Star quoted the American newspapers as reporting that the use of cocaine, opium and heroin has Increased among American troops stationed in Japan and Korea, "But the smell of narcotics," it added, "is felt not only in American troops stationed in foreign countries. Narcoticism Is flourishing also among military men stationed in the territory of the United States, despite statements of some representatives of the Pen tagon that soldiers and sailors, a well as officers, use narcotics only THEATRE On W.

It has on average of 969' persons to the square mile against "Little Rhody's" average of 652 per square mile. abroad." Red Star cited the San Diego, Calif., base as an evil example. "Every sailor and soldier at the San Diego base getting a pass to go downtown," it said, can find the most vicious amusements. They can easily find openly operating opium dens where there also are women and gambling. And if the soldier just crosses the border to Tl Juana, Mexico, he can find even more evils." Ladejinsky Is Hired By FOA WASHINGTON W) — The Foreign Operations Administration announced today it has hired Wolf Ladejinsky, fired as a security risk from his post as agricultural attache in the Tokyo embassy, to do a land reform job in Viet Nam. Foreign Aid Administrator Harold Stassen said in the announcement that FOA has reviewed Lade- Jlnsky's file and found him "eligible for certification for security and loyalty." He commented that ''in this very difficult matter of evaluating personnel from a security standpoint, individuals sometimes reach different conclusions even as judges of any court sometimes have dissenting opinions." The shift to FOA, which had been predicted earlier, was at least a partial solution for a problem that had ranged the Agriculture Department and the State Department in opposition to each other. Ladejinsky had security clearance from the State Department but his post was shifted to Agriculture Department control by an act of the last Congress and Secretary of Agriculture Benson, on advice of his security officer, ruled against retention of Ladejinsky in the attache position. In addition to the security finding, the Agriculture Department SNAILING ALONG -Six- year-old Michael Kane, of New York City, has a nose for nature.

Those denunciations of "Trotskylsts" and other public, enemies signaled an impending purge which did not come off because Sialin died in March 1953 . Ordinarily, the Soviet press doe* not dwell on the history of the great Stalin blood purges. Tha party seems quite conscious that the Soviet public—particularly the intellectual class—ha£e.s the very thought of what happened in the mid-t930.s. The blood purge .idea is trotted out at moments when the party considers it vitally necessary, possibly to justify a political need to resort once again to the old party remedy for heresies: terror. r WHITE SALE L_ WARDS SHEETS REDUCED 1.59 — 1.97 LONG WEAR—Made to Wards strict standards with 132 threads per square inch.
