Government was expected today to orack clown swiftly on rent- gouging landlords near military bases where some housing con- ditions are reported "shocking" and "deplorable." The Senate Preparedness sub- committee called for such action in releasing a new report on hou- sing provided servicemen near military bases. It ticked off dozens of cases where service families paid high rent to live in such quarters as a mule barn, a hen house, tool sheds, and other shacks. The subcommittee said drastic action is needed immediately by the Government and local com- munities to prevent serious dam- age to the morale oi the armed forces. The subcommittee reported in July that servicemen were being "shamelessly victimized" by rent gouging near three military camps. Its second report covered 17 additional military installa- tions. One of the "worst" housing situations it found was near the Marine Training Base at Camp Lejeune, N. C. It said servicemen are "being ground mercilessly by unscrupulous landlords." And it found some Marines to blame also. Some of the land- lords' were Marines themselves "a few Marines who do not hesitate to line their pockets with money extorted from their fellow Marines." The subcommittee urged the Defense Department to set up a "continuing committee" of hous- ing experts to solve the housing shortage and recommended that the rent rollback provisions of the controls law, be used to pre- vent gouging. Chaiiman Lyndon B. Johnson, D., Tex., said the subcommittee will begin public hearings within a few days to hear the armed services' recommendations. In addition to Camp Lejeune, the report found bad housing conditions at Camp Folk, La Chanute Air Force Base, 111., Camp Atterbury, Ind., Fort Eix, N. 3., and Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.

United Nations balked, today at resuming the Korean armistice talks in in- cident-ridden Kaesong on grounds that the city is "unsuitable." UN liaison officers told Com- munist liaison officers at an hour- long meeting in Kaesong that the truce talks cannot be reopened until the Reds agree to "new con- ditions, more conductive to pro- gress toward an armistice." No agreement was reached, and it was decided to hold a second meeting at 10 A. M. tomorrow (9 P. M. today EDT.) The UN officers handed the Communist, liaison delegation s memorandum summarizing the UN positions. The Reds in turn called a UN liaison officer to a Red check point below Kaesong six hours after the main meeting to receive a Communist memoran- dum. South Korean Lt. Col. Lee Soo Young picked up the Communist document at Pan Mun Join at 6 P. M. (5 A. M. It presum- ably was a reply to the Allied memorandum, but its contents were not disclosed. The Communist liaison officers demanded at the morning meet- ing that the armistice talks be resumed in Kaesong at once with- out further wrangling. But U. S. Colonels Andrew J. Kinney and James C. Murray refused. They said arrangements must be completed first to as- sure that the talks will not be interrupted again by real or imaginary violations of the con- ference neutral zone. For this reason, they said, Kae- song was unsuitable as a site. Supreme headquarters of Gen Matthew B. Ridgway said the UN delegation put the Allied case this way: "The Communist forces and UK command forces have been in con- stant maneuver, daily posing the chance of unintended violation o) the Kaesong neutral area "It is plain that parlisai groups, responsible to neithei command, are active in the Kae- song area. These uncontrollec elements may at any time take action which could compel a sus- pension of the conference "From the viewpoint of the military aviator, the Kaesong neu- tral zone is but a few minutet removed from the most important military line of supply in your rear area the likelihood of an accidental occurrence involv- ing Kaesong is obvious. 'The Communist commanders have alleged that a number of violations of the Keasong neutral zone approaching the figure 200 have occurred. "Could any fact argue more persuasively that Kaesong is un- suitable as a conference The UN command bulletin said Allied liaison officers expressed regret that the Communists had rejected Ridgway's original pro- posal for cease-fire talks aboard the Danish Hospital Ship Jut- landia. However, the Allies apparently did not mention any specific al- ternative site 1o Kaesong at Mon- day's meeting. The Jutlandia sailed back to Denmark last July, but other hospital ships presum- ably are available. Ridgway first suggested that the truce talks be shifted to a new site September 6, but the Communists rejected the proposal at the time. The Communists broke off the armistice talks August 23 on the pretext that UN planes had bombed the Kaesong neutral zone thtt previous night. The UN com- mand denied .'t and said the so- called, "evidence" of the raid had been planted by the Reds them- selves.
