To Cut Talk
On Spy Bill
WASHINGTON - OP) - The
House Rules Committee was urg-
ed yesterday to hold talk down to
a minimum when the House takes
up a mysterious American spy bill
which one member said involves
somewhat "dirty business."
Among other things, the mea-
sure permits the highly secret
Central Intelligence Agency to of-
fer sanctuary in this country to
foreigners who may risk death to
aid our agents. Up to 100 a year
would be allowed to enter each
year without regard to immigra-

agents in public or private insti-
tutions here or abroad, and ar-

associations, business firm, or the

amendments and limiting debate
to 40 minutes.
As Successor in
Foreign Trade Minister Mikoyan
Also enoved in Russian Shake-up
LONDON--(/P)-Vyacheslav M. Molotov, the man who many
thought might replace Josef Stalin as ruler of Russia's millions, last
night was released from his post as Foreign Minister and replaced by
the fiery Soviet lawyer, Andrei Y. Vishinsky, the Moscow radio said.
A brief announcement, released by the Soviet monitor in London,
said only that Molotov has been released "from the duties of Minister
of Foreign Affairs."
VISHINSKY recently returned to Moscow after treatment for
what was described as a serious illness. He had been treated in Czecho-
Molotov, foreign minister of
the Soviet Union since 1939,
was known the world -over as
the number two man to Stalin
in the Russian hierarchy. For-
eign observers who worked in
Russiaseemed agreed that he
eventually would rise to the
forefront as top man in the
Vishinsky, the man who has
taken his place, gained interna-
tional renown as one of the most
vitriolic orators ever to take part
in United Nations debates. He first
won fame as a prosecutor in the
pre-war Soviet purge trials.

THE TEXT of the Russian
broadcast as transcribed by the
Soviet monitor said.
"The Presidium of the Su-
preme Soviet has released the
Deputy Chairman of the Coun-
cil of Foreign Ministers of the
U.S.S.R., Comrade V. M. Molo-
tov, from the duties of Minister
of Foreign Affairs of the
U.S.S.R. and has appointed A.
Y. Vishinsky Foreign Minister of
"The Presidium of the Supreme
Soviet has released the Deputy
Chairman of the Council of the
Minister of the U.S.S.R., A. I. Mi-
koyan, from the post of Minister
of Foreign Trade and has appoint-
ed M. A. Menshikov in his place."
THE SUDDEN announcement
of the major shake-up in Russia's
high command struck foreign dip-
lomatic circles like a bolt. In some
quarters, such as the UN in the
United States itself, delegates were
astounded by the news. In the
noisy corridors of Lake Success
foreign representatives huddled
and wondered what it meant.
Diplomatic circles in London,
stunned by the news, speculated
as to whether the promotion of
Vishinsky might have some con-
nection with the current move
by Western nations to formulate
a North Atlantic defense pact.
And while they were speculating
on this, they also were trying to
figure out the significance of the
switch which found Menshikov,
formerly Vice-Minister of Foreign
Trade, taking over the post of his
A BIG QUESTION was what
will happen to Molotov now. No
one knew, from the terse Moscow
radio announcement, whether he
had been given another job. All
that was known was that no men-
tion was made of Molotov's sec-
ond post, that of Deputy Premier.
Some quarters believed it possi-
ble that releasing him from his
Foreign Ministry duties might be
tantamount to his appointment
by the 14-man Politburo to an
even greater responsibility.
SOFIA, Bulgaria -(P) -Com-
munist prosecutors demanded to-
day that four Bulgarian Protest-
ant ministers be hanged as trait-
ors and that heavy prison sen-
tences be imposed upon 11 others.
The trial of the 15 on chargeq of
treason and spying for the Unit-
ed States and Britain neared its
final stage in Sofia's district court.
The prosecution declared the min-
isters were servants of "Anglo-
American imperialism and the
Western church mission boards."
WESTERN capitalism and
American chtrch missions also
were attacked in defense summa-
tions. The defense lawyers, ask-
ing mercy for the group, said the
ministers were "the poor, unfor-
tunate victims" of Western Edu-
cation and that the lure of West-
ern gold had made them the tools
of American Anti-Communist
propaganda and espionage.
