Intelligence Agency's
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. Much of the intelli
gence work has been decentralized

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'.
