Number Chinese Reds Release Priests After 5 Years HONG KONG. June 14 (/P). —Two United SUtes Roman Catholic priests walked out ol prison In Red China today after serving full five-year terms on charges of espionage. They were described as cheerful. The Rev.

Bishop James Ed- I ward Walsh of Cumberland, Md., i has been held under various 1 forms of arrest In Shanghai but 1 has been given an exit visa. He i has said, however, he wants to 1 work with the people and will not leave unless forced to do so. h Fathers McCormack and Wagner were met by Bishop Walsh after their release. To Board Ship Bishop Walsh said by tele phone from Shanghai that he understood the two priests would board the British ship Changsha due in Shanghai : Wednesday for a trip to Hong ;jKong and then to the United States. The Bishop said he did [lnot know when the Changsha r would leave Shanghai. “They seemed cheerful and ; looked fairly well, but a little ;! oldish.” Bishop Walsh said. He said they were staying at the ; Peace Hotel, Shanghai’s best. In Pittsburgh, Father Wag i ner’s relativies said they knew i that the Communists were i going to release him and Father l ; McCormack. “It is wonderful news, but we \ are most concerned about his \ health," said his sister, Mrs.. Joseph Kleber. “Another priest who saw him in China not too i iong ago said they (the Com | munists) were giving him in fections to bring up his health.” Called “Criminals’’ \1 The release of the two priests | was announced by Peiping jj radio. It referred to them as l j “American criminals.’’ The | Communists repeatedly have \ used charges of espionage against missionaries and other : foreigners they want to take l out of circulation.

In hit telephone talk, Bishop Walsh said he had heard nothing about those four. Accused as Spy The Peiping broadcast said Father McCormack was Im prisoned on the charges of collecting Chinese political and economic information “under the cover of being a priest."! Father Wagner, it said, was Jailed “for sabotaging China’s financial ordinance.” Father McCormack left the United States in 1925 for the Catholic mission at Fushun, Manchuria. His mission was seized by the Japanese early in World War n and he was re patriated to the United States In August, 1942. He returned to Manchuria after the war but was forced out by the Chinese Communist advance against the Chinese Nationalists. He went to China proper and in 1951 moved to Shanghai, where he was arrested. Father Wagner was ordained in 1934 at Teutopolis. 111., and went to China the next year.

Church ill Was Doubtful Os Victory, Notes Show By the Associated Press Documents held secret 18 years disclosed yesterday Sit Winston Chuchill may not have been nearly so cocksure of beat ing the Nazis as he publicly let on in 1940. Hitherto unpublished cable: and messages, many of them exchanges between Mr. Church ill—later to become Sir Win ston Churchill—and President Franklin D. Roosevelt, were Is sued by the State Department in a 1,028-page volume. Pari of a continuing series, it covers United States relations during 1940 with the British Common wealth, Russia, the Near East and Africa. A glimpse of Mr. Churchill’s doubts of success in the first year of World War n was pro vided in a cable from Joseph Kennedy, then United States Ambassador in London, to Pres ident Roosevelt and the late Cordell Hull, then Secretary of State. The message was dated May 15—five days after Mr. Churchill became prime minister. Mr. Kennedy wrote: “I just left Churchill at 1 (o’clock). He is sending you a message tomorrow saying he considers with the entrance of Italy, the chances of the allies 8 winning is slight.” r Whatever Impression Mr. e Churchill gave Mr. Kennedy, * however, the ebullient Prime 1 Minister’s message to President Roosevelt was grimly confident. 18 , In his personal history of World n War n, Mr. Churchill quoted ‘ the message as saying: lt “If necessary, we shall con-! _ tinue the war alone, and we! X are not afraid of that.” ■tl Even so. Mr. Churchill] s allowed a note of doubt to creep g in. He listed his arms needs. - saying there would be enough it available In 1941, but adding, “if we are alive to see It.” A measure of Britain’s hopes . for United States help was h shown in another cable. In this ig one, an official British memo to . Mr. Roosevelt, London offered e to hand over the secret of y British radar, then a new secret s defense weapon, with no strings r attached. But the British sug e gested it would be helpful if : the United States saw its way 1 clear to reciprocate by letting u London have some technically e advanced United States radio f equipment. U. S. to Deny Other Nations H-Bomb Data By UM Auocltttd Ptui A high Defense Department official has Indicated the United States does not plan to give any other nation information on manufacture of the powerful hydrogen bomb. This Indication came from Deputy Secretary of Defense Quarles* during closed-door testimony before the Senate- House Atomic Energy Commit tee oi4 President Eisenhower’s proposal to permit greater ex change of nuclear weapons In formation and materials with allies. In a heavily censored portion of the transcript made public yesterday, Mr. Quarles said “there Is no thermonuclear (hydrogen) design that we now either have or contemplate that would be of a character that you could transfer under this plan.” Outgoing Chairman Strauss of the Atomic Energy Commis sion, testifying before the same committee, said there probably will never be complete dis closure of American nuclear know-how to any other nation. The committee also was told there are no plans now to give ; the North Atlantic Treaty Or ganization weapons manufsc ' turing data. Such information, ; however, could go to an indi vidual member of the alliance which already has a nuclear weapons Industry. At present, j this means only Great Britain. Mr. Strauss said the entire j AEC believes “that there will 1 always be certain secrets which i we would be unwilling to trans , mit because our research will , continue to go ahead and break , new ground. Therefore, we do not foresee a time when there will be a complete exchange.” ! Elsewhere In the closed-door 1 testimony, taken over a four -1 month period, the committee 1 heard that the British govern [ ment was negotiating to buy a nuclear submarine power plant from Westinghouse Electric 1 Corp. The submarine reactor deal would depend on passage of the nuclear exchange legisla tfon, which has been approved A modified form by the Joint committee and is now before Congress.
