Thousands of other American- equipped French Union troops, meanwhile, streamed ashore from landing craft on the Gulf of Tonkin to tighten the squeeze on two crack Chinese-trained and Chinese- equipped Vietminh divisions in the area.

David Greenglass NEW YORK Senate investi- gators planned today to question atom spy David Greenglass at the federal penitentiary at Lewisburg, Pa., on what he knows about radar espionage. Although reports circulated that Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis) would go to Lewisburg Saturday to conduct the questioning person- ally, the senator said today he still was' waiting to hear from the De- partment of Justice as to when an appointment could be made. McCarthy, chairman of the Sen- ate permanent investigations com- mittee, had indicated Thursday he would send subcommittee agents to do the questioning. Evidence that Julius Rosenberg, executed atom spy, also master- mined a spy ring at Ft. Monmouth, N. J., where radar defenses against atomic attack are devised, turned attention to Greenglass. Greenglass, a member of the atomic spy ring, escaped with a 15-year sentence in the Rosenberg case after testifying for the gov- ernment. He is a brother of Ros- enberg's wife, Ethel, who also was executed for her part in the atomic plot. Kenny Institute Chief Injured MINNEAPOLIS Wl Dr. E. J.
