Red Escapee May Be Beria:
Promises Secrets To U.S.
A man who is believed to be
Lavrenti P. Beria, the ousted
1 u u a
Soviet secret police head, claims
he has escaped from the Soviet
Union and is now prepared to
reveal Communist
President Eisenhower and top
American officials.
There is still some doubt in
the State Department as
whether this man is really Beria.
However the case will be thor
oughly checked.
The escapee is now dickering
with McCarthy's agents for a
safe haven in the United States
for himself and three other men
said to be "top men from Rus
sia." The man who indentified
himself as Beria stated that he
was willing to talk with Presi-
dent Eisenhower, Vice-president
Nixon or McCarthy.
The whereabouts of the es
caped man are not known, but
it was indicated that he is in a
neutral, anti-Communist Euro
pean country. However he may
not be residing in the continent
anymore. The governmental
sources could no be more ex
plicit about the stranger's hiding
place because of the danger it
would create for the person in

COL, JAMES H. Workman,
professor of military science and
tactics, said the Army has don
everything it can to Insux thai
ROTC graduates will receivt
commissions, but cutbacks in
military spending have cut down
the number of men that can be
absorbed into the service.
"The reason men are drafted
rather than given commissions,"
Workman said, "is that regula
tions state that all men deferred
for their years in college must
serve on active duty. This elim
inates the chance of giving men
not needed on active duty re
serve commissions.
' "The Army could use college
graduates on a reserve- commis
sion basis, but cannot give them
any but an active-duty commis
sion because of the deferment
rule. ' ;
Workman explained that men
who cannot be commissioned be
come eligible for the draft be
cause that is the only way they
can serve their required period
on active duty.
Workman said he expected all
the 1954 graduates to be com
missioned unless there are un
expected cutbacks in military
spending.
