That was the reunion Sunday TODAY Outlook in Indochina Nol Bright By JOSEPH ALSOP SAIGON, Indochina His Maj- esty, Bao Dai, Emperior of Viet Nam, is a small, delicately made, deceptively soft looking man whose favorite diversion is stalking the more dangerous varieties of local j big game. His conversation is polished, in- telligent, but seldom enlightening; for everything he says is complex- ly conditioned by the complex po- litical game he interminably plays with the French and with his own people. By extreme shrewdness, he has gradually transformed himself from a French puppet into the dominant political figure among the non-Communist Viet Namese. His dominance is now admit- ted even by those Viet Namese leaders who secretly disapprove of it. orphan he adopted while serving in Korea. I Raynor took Jimmy last Christ- i mas day in Korea. In May of this year he legally adopted him in Korean courts. But when it came time for Raynor to come home in July, he ran into immigration problems and had to leave Jimmy behind while he straightened them out. Since his return, Raynor said he has worked "full time" at getting Jimmy back here. He persuaded the state of South Dakota to recognize the adoption through an attorney general's opin- ion since "it was and arranged to get a visa for Jimmy to come to this country as the dependent of a .serviceman.

Makes Report On White Case Evidence Requested From Brownell Goes Into Record By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON inves- tigators looked to the Justice De- partment today for answers on how much information the Truman Administration had linking Harry Dexter White's co-workers with Red espionage. With no witnesses announced in advance, the Senate Internal Se- curity Subcommittee called a pub- lic hearing to put into the record documentary evidence requested from Atty. Gen. Brownell. It was Brownell who rekindled the Communists-in-government con- troversy. Brownell charged in a speech Nov. 6 that, despite FBI reports pointing to White as a spy, former President Truman pro- moted White in 1946 from assis- tant secretary of. the treasury to U. S. director of the International Monetary fund. Experts Disagree Truman, in a nationwide radio- TV reply', accused Brownell of "cheap political trickery" and said he permitted the promotion of j White, now dead, to keep him and others acused as spies under sur- veillance. But FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover, testifying before the Senate sub- committee, said he did not agree in advance to such an arrange- ment and that it hampered the FBI's watch on White. Last night the subcommittee counsel. Robert Morris, said Hoover turned down one invitation to testify in the case but accepted a second. Morris, interviewed on an NBC television program, said Hoover decided to break his self-imposed ban on congressional committee ap- pearances "after a story was well circulated" had agreed to keeping White in the government. When asked, Morris said he doubted Hoover considered wheth- er his testimony might cost him his job if the Democrats come into power later. There were indications Hoover might get a cool reception from Democfats when he goes be- fore Congress next year in sup- Iport of the FBI budget request. 1 Some Democrats, while not say- ing anything publicly, seem to feel Hoover cast his lot with.the GOP and tarnished the non-partisan rep- utation he has maintained through 29 eventful years as FBI director. Howe'ver, there were no signs that Democratic coolness would freeze away any funds requested for the FBI. Morris said the subcommittee is i not trying to put the finger on in- dividual Communists although tes- timony "very definitely" could lead to spy convictions. He said it is locking into alleged Communist in- filtration of years ago because it wants to trace a pattern of gov- ernment subversion which Commu- nists might still be following. Questions Planned He said the subcommittee has "several things" to ask Igor Gou- zenko, onetime Russian embassy code clerk at Ottawa who in 1945 exposed a Red spy ring operating contacts in the Alii mit Russ, But nly as Participants Ward L. Emmonj of LaPaz, Ind., ex-POW of the Chinese Communists, and his fiance, Miss Priscilla Gilbert, hold the letter that unexpectedly led to their romance and engagement. Miss Gilbert wrote to Emmons on a dare when she saw his picture in a newspaper after his release by Communists in Korea. Upon his return home, Eramons called upon Miss Gilbert and friendship soon ripened into romance.

Saturday Plan for Korean Talks Moving At Snail's Pace By WILLIAM BARNARD PANMUNJOM negotiators today approved Russia as a member of the Korean peace conference but as a "full partici- pant" on the Communist side rather than a neutral. U. S. Ambassador Arthur Dean again proposed that Russia attend the meeting as a belligerent after urging the Communists to explain their plan for neutrals to attend the he termed a "pig in a bag."

Dean, who represents the United Nations which fought in Korea, told newsmen after Monday's meeting he was "still optimistic" although he felt the talks were moving at a "snail's pace." He said he told the Reds they were making an "arbitrary de- mand" by insisting on nonbelliger- ent participation without making clear exactly what the added na- tions' roles would be.
