Representative Paul Rogers (Dem. who announced Die decision to hold the hearing; said he thinks it "most appro- priate that we begin an investi- gation immediately into this matter." Rogers also said he requested Defence Secretary Mclvin P. Laird to delay moving the gas, now stored at Lexington, Ky., and Anniston, ur.til after the subcommittee's hearing. Rogers said representatives of the army and the departments of state, interior and welfare will be invited to testify hefon the House merchant marini committee's oceanography sub committee. Several members of Congress meanwhile, contend the army ignored international law in de vising plans to dump the deadly gas. Other legislators coniplainec the army had given too shorl notice of its elaborate plan to transport the dangerous cargo overland before sending it to the bottom of the Atlantic Aug. 10. The army announced Thurs- day two trains will start from Anniston, Ala., and Lexington, Ky., carrying the steel-and-con- weapons to Sunny Point arsenal near Southport, N.C. Senator Claiborne Pell (Dem R.I.) said the United States is obligated by the 1958 Geneva convention of the law of the sea to consult with internationa. committees before disposing of potentially hazardous pollutants in international waters.
