MONTGOMERY Ottawa, July 16 —WV- Two high members of the Hussian embassy staff accused of directing undercover espionage operations in Canada Ieft 4 Ottawa hurriedly following publication of the government report on the Soviet espionage network, it was learned today. ;The two were understood to be hc'ading back to Moscow, presumably by the way of the United States. They are Bitali G. Hamlov second secretary of the embassy who was accused of directing an NKVD (Soviet secret police) espionage network, and Ivan I. Krotov, commercial counsellor. Both men were charged by a Royal commission with operating espionage networks secretly, while ostensibly serving in their official positions . The departure of the two followed n series of such exits beginning last December. The Royal commission report, published yesterday, told of operations in secret rooms of the Soviet embassy which, in most cases, were reported carried on without the knowledge of other embassy officials. The report stated specifically that Ambassador George Za- roubim was not involved. Pavlov and Krotov were among 17 Soviet embassy officials and employes named as, "at one iime or another since the establishment Russia Pledges Full Support to Red Cross I found the way to amazing » NewVIJALIJY...PEP... better looks!

"We are in hearty agreement with the principles of Red Cross," Dr. Sergei Kilesnikoy, chairman of the four-man .Russian delegation told the league of Red Cross societies at it second plenary session. The Russian delegates suggested two resolutions for the Go-nation conference. One would authorize the league itself to pass upon applications for membership. The Swiff International Red Cross committee now controls such applications. The other would encourage tne Junior Red Cross to mobilize the world's youth ior the promotion of international peace. A report released today said Russia has 3,500,000 Junior Reel Cross members. Little Case Labor Bill Signed Into Louisiana Law Baton Rouge. La., July 16—W 1 )— Gov. Jimmie Davis today signed into law a Louisiana version of the Case labor bill and another measure excluding strikers from unemployment compensation benefits. The so-called "Little Case' 'bill, one of the most controversial issues in the recent state legislative session, makes unions mutually responsible with employers for fulfillmenl of contracts between them. The governor's action, announced without comment, followed his veto of another controversial labor measure, which would have outlawed Ihe closed shop in Louisiana.

FPHA's subsidiary, the United States Housing authoritv USHA), was able to go ahead of the embassy in 1942, directing undercover espionage operations in Canada."

Star of Hooe. 1899: Press. 1927. Consolidated January 18. 1929. The report which carried this warning was a masterpiece of innu- cndp. Us source was the testimony of Army security officers at Oak nidge, Tenn., officers of the scientific societies, and others. Its purpose was to stall congressional V f action toward putting atomic energy under civilian control. Its ovcitones were ominous, as they doubtless were intended to be. But when you put the accusations down in print, they look considerably less dire. Scientific and engineering personnel, separated from government service on the atom bomb project, have organized small groups in various cities which "continue to co-operate with scientific socilies whose headquarters aio located inside the resorva- ^ lions at Oak Ridge," it is charged. It is further charged that the Oak Ridge societies arc made up of "young me'i who are classified as scientific researchers and engineers," and that their purpose is to create "some form of world government" and support international civilian control "f manulac- turc of atomic materials. Also it is charged that these young men arc opposed to Army supei vision of OUK Ridge, mat tiiL-y liave communicated with persons outside the United States '''and that (horrors!) they intend to keep on doing so. One is evidently supposed to read between the lines and discover that the accused are conspiring in their vaiicus tcienlilic cells to give away .iiioinic bomb secrets to Russia. But the evidence presented is scarcely tapauie ol nlniig one with immediate terror as to the country's peace and security. 'Ihe formation ot scientific societies and the exchange of scientific information arc old and hon- •jiu cd customs, and envisioned in "the future international development ot .atomic resources. "Some form ot world government" is advocated by a good many wise and distinguished persons, including former Supreme Court Justice (Jwcn Roberts.

HENDERSON Washington, July 10 — (/!')— The Senate War Investigating Committee reported today that it Mas uncovered "new evidence" in its war profits inquiry into a midwest munitions combine. The "new evidence" delayed a committee decision on what steps it might take in hailing Chairman May fD-Ky) of the House Military Committee before it for a nubile "vn'.inlaiion of nis activities in explanation of his activities, in connection with the combine. The commiUc met i'or more than an hour behind closed doors for a "general discussions" of possible steps. Two written invitations already have been sent to him by Chair- I man Mead (D-NY) to appear "vol- i untarily." But he has laid down I conditions ior that appearance — I among them the right to cross I examine witnesses and summon I records — which the committee I has refused to accept. | May has acknowledged that he I aided the Illinois industrial com] bine during the war years, but has 'insisted that aid was for the war effort alone, and has denied that he profiled .personally. Yesterday the committee hoard testimony that he once asked an ! official of the combine: "What I about that :?:•!,000?" I At the close of today's executive I session, Francis Flanagan of committee counsel announced ihe discovery of the new evidence, but ] flatly refused to disclose 10 reporters even an "inkling" of its ,ia- turc or who it involved. He acknowledged that it might involve the reopening of public I hearings. Mead, who brought public hearings to a tumultuous end yesterday, said the committee also will 'decide wnat action to take on the non-appearance of Murray Gars, son. Garsson was one of 'the pro] moters of the .Erie Basin Metal IProd'Tts Comnany of Elgin, 111., and Batavia Metal Products Com' pany of Balavia, 111., leading com' panics in the munitions s'iuip. The chairman iold newsmen that the committee is "not satisfied" with Garsson's statement that he is unable to leave Havana because of ill health, and will c.on- sult with its chief counsel, George Meadfcr, as to the legal possibilities in connecton with both Garsson and May. Testimony concerning May's inquiry about $3,000 was offered yesterday by Mrs. Eleanor Hall, one of two pretty ox-secretaries of vhe combine's Washington office who sprinkled the committee's record with references to members of Congress and high-ranking army officers. The other, was Mrs. Jean Bates.

July 18 —(/I')— Form'er governor Kugene Talmadgc, exponent of "white supremacy*," maintained a wide lead today in Georgia's race :;or governor as tabulation of returns from yesterday's primary election proceeded with nearly half a million voles counted. At 10:15 a.m., Talmadgc had carried or was leading in counties having a unit vote total of 234 while 36-year-old James V. Ca'r- michacl. backed by Governor Ellis Arnall, had taken or was ahead 'in counties having 156 unit votes. Caririichacl was leading in the popular vote but that means nothing in Georgia — the unit votes tell the story in much the same way as the U. S. electoral college operates. Carmichacl's popular vote was 212,472 while Talmadge had 184.419. This was a lead of-28.053. Fulton County (Atlanta'), most populous in the stale, went 'or Carmichale by a 31.161 margin on the basis of latest returns. But Talmadge had won a majority or was leading in 98 counties compared to SO for Carmichael. Former Governor E. D .Rivers and war veteran Hoke O'Kelley trailed. The vote had been completed' in 35 of the lf>9 counties, with :io ire- turns reported from two. The returns were from 1,111 of the iota! 1,746 precincts.

Today the United Press obtained information that Zukov has boon t 01 his nign command and sent to the obscure Odessa post — a move comparable to relegating Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower io command a U. S. Army post at New Orleans. Zhukov, it was learned, is not Ihe only victim of the reorganization of the Red Army's xop command. However, details of the changes are not yet available. There was no explanation of the sudden Soviet move which '-.ame only a litlle more lhan three months after Zhukov had been named Hcd Army ground force commander and elevated to a post on the presidium of the supreme Soviet, top legislative body in Russia. However, il came afler the Soviet press and tne Red Army organ, Red Star, had launched a major propaganda drive for tightening up discipline in the Hed Army and placing major emphasis on security and tne preservation of state secrets from foreigners. ^.nuKov, during his service as Soviet representative on the Allied control commission in Berlin, had become a warm personal iriend of Kisenhower who then represented the United States on thai body. ZhuKov's successor as commander of Soviet ground forces was not known. Wniie Ihc shakeup of the Soviet higlr-eernmand was uncia-'sUSod to have been sweeping in ature, il appeared nol to have been as severe as the famous "purge" of the Soviet high command in 1937 when ihe top ranking hierarchy of the army was virtually swept away by executions. There has been no indication thus far that the shakeup involved any Soviet suspicion of foreign iiiiKs with the hed Army high command. Tne fact thai Zhukov was senl lo the Odessa .military district would appear to indicate thai his demotion resulted from a conflict in hign policy rather than suspicion of troacnerv. It was speculated that Ihe policy General Marshall, special U. S. envoy, flew to Ihe summer, capilal at Kuling lo confer wilh Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and presumably gave him the latesl account of Ihe deteriorating situation. His headquarters said only thai Marshall was accompanying Dr. John Leighlon Stuart, new United States ambassador, who will present his credentials to the generalissimo. Marshall is expected to return to Nanking within two or three days to resume the deadlocked negotiations. There was an ominous quiet in Manchuria, but from reports pouring in lillle remained in China proper of lasl January's cease-fire agreemenl which Marshall hoped to use as a foundation ixir a permanent peace.

Commander Norman Myrick, member of the task force, emphasized at a press conference kinds of damage. These included holes blown the sides of ships, destruction of , ships' machinery, steel plates Wiciichea loose and Hurled as projectiles, violent shaking of the ships, fires and radioactivity.

The most modern vessel in the target fleet is the German cruiser Prinze Eugen. The most modern United Stales ships is the carrier Sarattoga, which has the hull of a battle cruiser. Capt. Fitzhugh Lee, press officer of the task force and navy veteran, said the explosion "may crumple the hulls of some ships." A torpedo explosion creates a sudden pressure on one part ol .a ship's hull, Lee said, but the atomic bomb will apply violent and instantaneous pressure over the entire hull, possibly powerful enough to buckle thick steel plates such as those protecting battleships. The bomb will be detonated anywhere from 18 to 120 feet below the lagoon's surface but the oxact depth is Uniled States -o- sccrel. Candidates Plan Short County Tour A group of Hempstead County candidates announced today four Sketchy outlines of a uossible compromise OPA bill began to" take form as a House-Senate • conference committee met for the third day. While no one could say what ultimately would come from the committee, members said the idea shaped -up like this: 1. That the Senate yield to President Truman's insistence on re- irmval of bans for further price ceilings on rneat, butter, eggs 'and < other food items. The House con-' terees are supporting the president's position on this point. , 2. That the conferees, then follow the proposal of Senator Tafl (R-Ohiq) and strike from .the "bill- a provision that would give OPA discretionary power in. ^applying a new pricing formula that would mean price increases Jor many manufactured and agricultural items. - • ; ;§enator Millikin (R-Colo) said, Jjfrvvever,.. the . confere !Li_i_ ••-_ jv - .•r*V*+ JfV . , J i, TTi, state, of urfctefm'ed •SisagreerrieriC"-' """' although he reported'evidence of-a determination to produce an OPA bill that Mr. Truman will sign. The president has been represented on Capitol Hill as willing to sign the Senate bill — overlooking some other objections — if it restores price control on market basket items. Senator Barkley (Ky), the Democratic leader, told reporters a showdown on allempts to write a compromise price control bill that President Truman will sign is unlikely before tomorrow. Yesterday's session of the Senate-House conference commitlse considering the measure produced a lot of talk and no little confusion. It finally broke up for lack 1 of a quorum as senators drifted away to debate a bill proposing 2 con- stitulional amendment to guarantee women equal rights with men. That debate goes on today. Also, before the confereer. can get back to the subject of OPA they planned another -effort to break a weeks' long deadlock over Senate-House differences on the price of silver. A price ongage- menl will keep Barkley away i'rom any afternoon OPA session. Hence prospects are dim for an agreement today. No votes were taken yesterday on any part of the Senate bill,* which Mr. Truman has hinted strongly he will veto if it lands on his desk with its current bans on price coilngs for meat, butter, eggs, milk and several other grocery store items. However, House conferees we; e reported waiting only for a propitious moment lo propose to the senators that they back down on. the food list amendments. Mr. Truman was represented in some capitol quarters as ready to overlook other objections if the price, lid is put back on the market basket. But even in the absence of any parliamentary maneuvering within the conference, tempers apparently got hot. Senator Tobey (R-NH) emerged from the committee room declaring "lhe house conferees want to talk, but it won't take any position. The time has come to fish or cut Tall (R-Ohio), whose bait." Senator speaking dates before the elimination primary on July 30. Although all candidates would not agree to a pre-election tour several are going to speak and probably all the others will on hand also. Time will be lolled to district candidates. The tour includes: July 23, 8 p.m.— Patmos. July 24, 8 p.m.— McCaskill. July 26, 8 p.m. —Bingcn.
