WILLIAMS was one of two edu-

He was named by an ex-com-

In his letter, Williams said.:
"I should like to state for your
records that I was a member of
the Communist party in 1936-37

no connection with it since then.
"Since then I have co-operated
with the loyalty investigations of
the Department of Commerce and
with the FBI, giving them all the
information I could on certain de-
tails of membership and activities
of the communistdgroup with
which I-was affiliated."
Dean Muelder, after a talk with

that the English professor was
telling the truth.

Demand Given
By Vishinsky
Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky de-
manded yesterday the immediate
and unconditional prohibition of
hydrogen and atomic bombs and
all weapons of mass destruction.
In a resolution at the end of his
policy speech to the U.N. General
Assembly, the Soviet chief delegate
proposed that the Security Council
set up international controls to
make certain nations comply with
bans on these weapons.

THE RUSSIANS have a veto in
the council and the Americans
have refused to accept similar
Russian proposals inthe past.
Vishinsky also made a bid to
admit neutrals to the- Korean
peace conference in line with
demands by the Red Chinese.
