so he can't live in any other?"
The professor reportedly gulped and said,
"That's the problem."

A move to gain a new trial for former Army Sgt. John David
Provoo on a treason charge was rejected by the Supreme Court Monday.
The decision of dismissal of an indictment charging seven acts of
treason while Provoo was a prisoner of the Japanese after the fall of
Corregidor was first made by a Baltimore district judge. The Supreme
Court upheld the decision made on the grounds that Provoo 's consti
tutional rights had been violated when he was held in prison more than
five years before the charges against him were first brought to trial.

As the flood waters receded in seven Eastern states, residents

take charge of rehabilitation and rescue operations. President Eisen
hower, maintaining constant contact with the stricken areas, made
it clear that flood states would be given disaster loans, either
through a new declaration or under the one issued in August.

Although the State Department explained that he had asked to be
recalled because of illness, there are indications that quiet Korean
pressure was responsible. His resignation was reported to have shocked
U.S. Embassy sources here and in Tokyo. Korean pressure against hira
was traced to fear that Lacy was assigned to Seoul to watch next year's
crucial election when Korean President Syngman Rhee will seek a
