The stranger then attempted to Jackson Says Anti-Red Bills Need Revision WASHINGTON WV- Sen. Jack-1 son (D-Wash) proposed today that j the 84th Congress take time to do "a thorough and resolute" job in revising the laws curbing Communists, including a bill signed yesterday by President Eisenhower. Eisenhower said in signing a measure which would strip the Communist party of its legal rights that further study will be required to determine its full impact on the enforcement of laws already on the books! As one of the Democrats who helped pul across the measure in the face of Republican opposition to attaching it to another bill, Jackson said he regards the legislation as being open to possibly extensive revisions when the next Congress meets. No Hearings Held "I hope that when we return in January we can do a thorough and resolute job in dealing with the Communist problem," he said. "The action Congress took on this particular bill was hasty and done without holding any public hearings. "By January we should have some positive comment by the. Justice Department on the work-1 ability of the new law and how it affects other statutes."    ' Jackson said he and other Dem-. ocrats who suddenly came up with a proposal to outlaw the Communist party had no intention of hampering the operations of the Internal Security .^ct, under which the Justice Department is attempting to force the registration of all Communists.

Troops fired on a crowd trying to attack the Air Ministry. Two persons were injured. Vargas, the country’s strong man, chose yesterday to give up his presidency bv suicide rather than force. He fired a bullet through his heart after 58 Air Force and Army generals forced the 71-year-old political leader to resign. This morning while Armv troops stood by, thousands of Brazilians followed the body of Vargas from the presidential palace to the city’s downtown airport. The plane took off for southern Brazil, where Vargas will be buried in an unblessed grave. Afterward a crowd gathered in front of the Air Ministry. Air Force personnel and the crowd became involved in a dispute and troops were rushed to the scene. Shots were fired in an attempt to restore order.
