Prime Minister Macmillan in a startling statement to the House of Commons Wednesday called for a "trial of truth" and named Lord Radcliffe, 63, as the head of a tribunal with sweeping powers to look ino the rumors and the state of government security. The spy.alarm was heightened by Charles Jan Orr-Ewing, civil lord of the admiralty, who said in a speech that thousands of Communist secret agents are op- erating in Britain. Large Scale? Macmillan himself warned that "hostile intrigue and espionage are being relentlessly maintained on a large scale" in Britain and that "massive efforts are being made by every possible method to undermine our security." His statement was prompted by a rumor that Thomas Galbraith, former civil lord of the admiral- ty and the second-ranking civilian official there, planned to defect to the Soviet Union with William John Vassall. Vassall, an admiralty clerk, confessed at his trial" last month that the Soviets used his homo- sexuality to blackmail-him into- spying for them for six years. He was jailed for; 18 years. For Months Lord Radcliffe's tribunal also will investigate a press report that it was known for 18'months, be- fore Vassall's arrest last Septem- ber that there was a spy in the admiralty. This will be Lord Radcliffe s second inquiry into government security. He led an investigation of intelligence services after George Blake, a foreign office in- telligence agent turned traitor, was jailed for 42 years last year. As a result of the investigation greatly tightened regulations for civil service employes went, into effect. Likes Probes Before that Lord Radcliffe, a lifetime peer, made almost a ca- reer of conducting government in- quiries. He headed commissions that drew up the boundaries of .India and Pakistan and the con- stitution for Cyprus and another that made a four-year study of the tax, monetary and'credit sys- tem. He served as director gen- eral of information in World War II. Assisting him will be Sir Milncr Holland, one of Britain's top law- yers, and Justice Patrick Barry, a high court judge since 1950 who in 1952 tried William Marshall, a foreign office radio operator, and sent him to prison for five years for giving secrets to the Soviet Union. A Dark- Cloud Macmillan told Parliament a "dark cloud of suspicion and in- nuendo" has surrounded Gal braith, the former admiralty min- ister who last week resigne'd as undersecretary for Scotland. Vas- sall had worked for him at the admiralty, and a number of brief, seemingly innocent letters from the minister to the clerk were, found in Vassall's apartment. "It is no good beating about the declared the prime minis- ter. "What was being spread about was that he was guilty.of a perverted- or immoral associa- tion with Vassall." As Macmillan spoke, Galbraith, 45, married, and the father of two children, sat white-faced orf the Conservative benches behind him. He is a member of the House of Commons from Glasgow.'

Nixon, wants to cancel its million-dollar adver- tising contract with ABC-TV, But ABC won't agree. 'Patrick Frawley, chief execu- tive officer of the Shick firm, sought cancellation of the contract in a telegram to Vincent Francis, ABC-TV's Western advertising di- rector. The wire said in part: "We are shocked at the extreme poor taste and judgment shown by the ABC network in presenting a convicted perjurer involved in the passing.of United States secrets to the Communists as a critic of a- former'vice president of the United States." In a return telegram, Francis said: "We value our relationship with you and your company, and, of regret that you feel as strongly as you do about that broadcast. However, we cannot request" Asked why Schick would not be permitted to .cancel; Francis "We're just 'being good business- men." A.

The .rockets, .Soviets, are loaded with cloud-seeding chemicals and fired into suspect- ed clouds.

Burkhart Asks Federal Court To Order Oklahoma To Reapportion According To Commissions Plan Conditions Are Secret, Sources Say WASHINGTON Soviet Premier Khrushchev has sent President. Kennedy an offer to pull .Soviet jet bombers out -of Cuba but attached so many "ifs" that a Cuban settlement is not within sight, .authoritative sources said early today." Khrushchev's proposal, it was learned, was received several days ago and is be- ing discussed at negotia- tions presumably in New York where U.S. and Soviet representatives have been trying to hammer out an agreement. Exactly what conditions the So- viet premier attached to his offer were not disclosed. But there were so the sources said, 'that they cannot foresee a swift solution to the problems that have been keeping a fire to 'the Cuban crisis.

It was understood' that some of the exchanges have been handled by intermediaries at the United Nations. Kennedy has insisted that' the 750-mile range bomters are 'in the same offensive weapons category as 'the Soviet missiles and must also be removed. U.S. officials have reported' that 42 of the missiles were counted on Soviet vessels steaming away from Cuba. -That's the number of missiles the Soviets say they had on the island. Officials here look.upon. the re- moval of the missiles (unless some are hidden in caves) as ful- fillment -of the mo'st "important, of Khrushchev's promises to Ken- nedy. In addition to the bomber issue, Khrushchev has not carried out his promise to allow U.N. inspec- tion of the dismantling of weapons and their bases which Castro has cried he will not permit. The United States 'pressed the Soviet Union1 on the planes Tues- day during the New York talks. U.N. Ambassador Adlai-E. Steven- son politely but firmly told Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister..

However, :in the long days, of haggling over the bombers, Soviet negotiators never claimed the planes were Castro's '.property, or that the Soviet government would not .remove them.
