Shakeup Gives Hope For Additional Funds The State Department hoped to day that a drastic reorganization of its controversial intelligence unit would induce Congress to provide funds to keep it alive. Appointment of William L. Lan ger, Harvard University history professor who served during the war in the Office of Strategic Services, I as a special assistant in charge of j research and intelligence, was an-1 nounced late yesterday by Acting Secretary of State Acheson. Charges Declared False. Mr. Langer succeeds Col. Alfred McCormack, who resigned last week1 after protesting decentralization of: the intelligence unit and branding as false charges by some members of the House Military Affairs Com- | mittee that he had brought “pro Soviet sympathizers’’ into the De partment. The House Appropriations Com mittee recently killed a $4,150,136 item in the State Department budg et for the intelligence unit. The House is scheduled to take up; the appropriations bill Thursday. Officials hope it will restore at least; a part of the intelligence appro-j priation in view of the shakeup of the unit, which was reported un dertaken to meet objections of some members of Congress and career diplomats.

Sons Lose Appeal of SuittoClear Union Soldier of Desertion The United States Court of Ap peals today affirmed a District Court ruling which dismissed a suit brought by two sons of a Union soldier in the Civil War, seeking to have a charge of desertion against their father removed from his mili tary record. The Secretary of War and the Administrator of Veterans' Affairs | were named defendants in the suit, I filed m 1944. The two sons, Edward E. and William A. Snauffer, also sought to have the Veterans’ Administrator pay them “bounty, allowances and pensions accruing to their father until his death in 1925, and to his widow until her death in 1926.” The District Court had granted a motion to dismiss for lack of Juris diction. The appellate court de clared: “We have often held that, Congress having denied judicial re view of the decisions of the ad ministrator of Veterans’ Affairs concerning claims for pensions, the courts have no power to grant re lief!*' The Court of Appeals added that the remaining question was whether the father, “having received in July, 1865, a discharge from the Army, is now entitled as a matter of right to invoke the provisions of the statute which authorizes the Secre tary of War, upon application, to remove a record charge of desertion upon satisfactory proof that within a reasonable time after the deser tion the soldier voluntarily returned to his command and served faithful ly to the end of his term of service, or until discharge. The court then ruled the plain tiffs in the suit did not have a right to a court ruling in their favor due to the long passing of time in which they took no action'.
