House Orders Inquiry
Into Disposition of
Records Theft Cases
The House yesterday ordered an
investigation of the disposition of
cases involving six persons in the
alleged theft of documents from
the State, War and Navy Depart
ments during the war.
The action was taken after Rep
resentative Dondero, Republican, of
Michigan, had asserted the efforts
of the Federal Bureau of Investiga
tion in the case had been "rendered
futile, if not entirely nullified’’ by
the disposition of the case. He
declared more than 100 files con
taining top-secret and highly con
fidential information were stolen
from the three departments and
were found in the office of the
magazine Amerasia in New York.
The House action was taken on a
roll-call vote of 298 to 111. Repre
sentative Rankin, Democrat, of Mis
sissippi, told the House the Commit
tee on Un-American Activities had
learned the spy ring that Canada is
investigating is working in the Unit

ed States trying to learn the secret
of the atomic bomb.
Thorough Review Promised.
The House resolution provides for
“a thorough investigation of the
charges of espionage and the pos
session of documents stolen from
secret Government files which were
made by the Federal Bureau of In
vestigation against the following in
dividuals: Philip J. Jaffe, Kate L.
Mitchell, John Stewart Service, Em
manuel Siguard Larson, Andrew
Roth and Mark Gayn.”
Three of the six arrested last June
were not indicted; the other three
were indicted on a reduced charge of
conspiring to remove Government
records and files unlawfully.
Among the latter was Jaffe, editor
of what Mr. Dondero called the
"pro-Communist magazine” Amer
asia. Jaffe pleaded guilty and paid
a $2,500 fine.
Besides Jaffe. those indicted were
Larson, an employe in the State De
partment's Far Eastern Division,
! and Roth, formerly a naval lleu
| tenant in the intelligence section.
F.mploye Fined $500.
Larson paid a $500 fine after
| pleading no defense, while the in
'dictment against Roth was dls
| missed on motion of Government
attorneys.
The grand jury took no action
against Miss Mitchell, co-editor of
Amcrasia; Service, an employe of
the State Department’s Far East
ern Division, now in Tokyo, and
Gayne, now a foreign correspondent
i for the Chicago Sun in Tokyo.
In his prepareo address, Mr. Don
dero said, "The friendly relation of
the United States intelligence
agency with the British intelligence
was most unfavorably affected” by
publication of secret information in
Jaffe's magazine.”
He added that "when the facts
in these cases are made known, I
am informed they will show that
Jaffe, while under surveillance, was
in direct and indirect contact with
a foreign consulate in New York.”
