clerks employed by the Nation- 1
al Security Agency has aroused l
the country. There is sufficient:
cause for concern. ,A' full in

, Inquiry Their defection is
bad enough. The fact that the
clerks were employed in 1957
and retained in the agency un
til their defection this summer
needs to be carefully probed by
Congress. I think it will be in
order for Congress to learn
what influence the United States

ing series of reverses in our
fight for survival in the cold
war with the Soviets. These
unfortunate events have been
exploited and distorted to the
disadvantage of the United
States before the world. As a
consequence, it is a .time for
concern. Although it had" been
known for a month that the two
men had fled the United States
via Mexico and Cuba, when the
news conference by them was
held in Moscow, the administra
tion in Washington seem&d to be,
unprepared to meet the propa-l

Our government must be more
