Time Not Fixed Thomas told reporters the com- mittee will go Into this aspect of things when It resumes Its hearings either hero or In Los Angeles. The ilme has not been fixed. Members of the committee staff also will continue working on the spy story during tho recess, he said, "and when they are ready we will go into 16 again." The committee's evidence about Soviet snooping on the atom bomt secret was developed by tho final witness, Louis J. Russell, soft- poken, 36-year-old Kontuckian who worked with tho F.B.I, for ton fears before becoming a committee nvcstlgator two years ago.

Indirectly, Hollywood got Into the picture when Ruuell said ft Mrs, Louise Bransten directed the "man- ner In which contacts" would be made by communists in the case and had connections with govern- ment agencies and people in Holly- wood. Committee sources disclosed that evidence warn turned over-to Juttlee. department by the FBI about ft..year ago, and "In- dicated that they expect the next Htep to bo taken by tho depart- ment. Oppenhehner Refuses Comment At Princeton university where ho now Is director of the Institute for Advanced Study, Dr. Oppen- helmer said ho would make no comment "In order not to interfere in any manner with the activities of agencies of the U. S. government concerned." The first phase of the House committee's hearings ended In their ninth day without questioning of such witnesses as Actor Larry Parks, Charlie Chaplin, and a group of tllm writers who havti been subpoenaed. But Into the committee's volu- minous records went recommenda- tions for contempt citations against ten Hollywood writers, directors and producers who failed to state dc- rinltcly whether they are or have been members of the Communist party. Against each the committee claimed to have evidence of com- munist affiliation. Each claimed the committee has no right to in- quire Into political beliefs or opinions.

Controls on Credit End Tomorrow Special Session May Reimpose Installment Curbs Washing-ton Easier terms for many Installment buyers are ex- pected as controls over consumer credit follow price ceilings on the statute books. Some confusion prevailed at first I over the precise timing of the ex- piration of the controls because of uncertainty over the meaning of the congressional resolution calling for their end "after November 1." Federal reserve officials first said that the resolution thus set mid- night tonight as the deadline. After consultation, in the light of different interpretations by federal reserve banks, they said midnight tomor- row would be the final official posi- tion. The amount of down payments and the number of months to pay will be strictly up to the seller for the first time In over six years. The expiring controls require In general one-third down and full payment within IS months for au- tbmobileiv, _ radios, rcfrlgcrators, I washing machines and other major household appliances. What sellers and lenders do with their new fsedom will be watched closely bjrofflcials here who, from the President on down, have ex- pressed fear of fuel being added to of Inflation, There Is wide speculation that President Truman may ask Con- gress to revive credit controls when It meets November 17 on his call to combat high prices and consider aid to Europe. 'But many officials expressed be- lief that controls .will not be re- stored unless easy terms promote a buying spree. The volume of Installment credit, bounding up at a rate of a month throughout the last year despite the controls and the short- age of goods they affect, has pass- ed the mark and la nearing the peak set in 1841. Splurge on Rubber Checks Ends for Youth, 22, Who Claims Mondovi As Home Milwaukee, 22-year- old youth, who told police his home is in Mondovi, has como to tho end of a coast-to-coast upending splurge which Includ- ed the purchase of a yacht and a automobile- all with "rubber" checks. He gave his name as Good- win P. Bock, of Mondavi, but In Mondovi he was disowned. Said one well-informed resi- dent, "This home town boy, who didn't make good, isn't from Mondovi. There Is no family by that name in Mondovi." In Alma Sheriff Henry Rhyner searched his records, found no record for Goodwin P. Bock, the name given by the youth to Milwaukee police. Police said Bock is a parolee from the Green Bay reforma- tory, and if he was committed from Buffalo county It would have boon recorded in tlic sher- iff's records. At any rate Detective Ser- geant Vance Chamberlain of the Milwaukee force said that the youth had admitted tho financing of n. const-to-coast- npree with bad checks. Behind him is a trail of In bum checks. He didn't have a cent when he started. He is held on charges of auto- mobile theft, forgery and utter- ing and operating a confidence game. It all started August 22 when Bock stole an automobile from. a parking lot in Milwaukee. In one of the pockets he found credentials of Victor H. Joyce. Prairie du Sac, Wls., including a hotel credit card. Detective William Wysockl, who brought Bock bnck from. Taos, N. M., the end of the trail, said the young man told him: With the credentials, he Ob- tained worth of clothing la a 'Milwaukee store; cashed a check for in another store, and bought n, wrlstwatch worth on credit. Then he drove Into the state, where he splurged with proceeds from In worthless checks. He abandoned the automobile in Chicago, and bought another with n. Joyce check for At Tampa, Fla., he purchased a yacht, making a down payment with a check. He also opened a checking ac- count at a Tampa bank with a check. The yacht owner became suspicious, but before he could check. Bock flew to San Francisco. From San Fran- cisco, he went to Reno, Ncv. Luck and money ran out In Reno. He pawned the watch he had purchased In Milwaukee for He hitchhiked to Taos, where he asked for lodging at the county Jail. Police found a revolver while ho was being searched. Bock Insisted ho was Just carrying the revolver "for pro- tection because I was handling so much money." Taos authori- ties checked In tho area and with neighboring states. There was no record of recent holdups. So they turned Bock over Detective Wysockl. to Wreckage of Airliner Sighted Seattle Pan American World airways announced today that wreckage of Its missing DC-4 airliner had been sighted on an An- nette island' mountainside, near Ketchlkan, Alaska.

Ramadier streamlined his cabinet only last week by trimming the number of ministers from So- cialists, six Popular Republicans, five Kadical Socialists, and two In- 13: Seven Socialists, three Popular Republicans, two Radical Socialists and one Inde- pendent.
