TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS EVEN • * THE AIR OVER HANFORD IS OUT OF BOUNDS • * • • • • BUT IT'S TOUCH TO DEFEND ATOMIC FACTORY FROM EXPANSION'S INDUSTRIAL WOES BOOMING CITV is Richland, which houses the «niploye«s who work at the Han ford A-Bomb manu> facturing: area. It's grown from SOA In 104S to 2S,000 today. This la the site of a new housing project. which will accomm ndate 300 families. H n«tt BY DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent ANFORD, Wash.—(NEA)—In the operatione office of an Air Force base a few hundred miles from here there IB a sign for all to see which says: "If you have never had a court-martial, try flying over Hanford." At another nearby base the sign reads: •'It is better never to have flown at all than to fly over Hanford." Only the jet fighter pildts whose 24-hour-a-day mission is to defend the 620-acre Hanford site from air attack arc permitted to fly over it. For every other pilot, the air above the site where they make Plutonium for the atomic bomb is strictly out of bound.?. Because Hanford is considered the A-bomb manufacturing area closest to possible air attack by Russia, It is probably the most heavily-guarded of any of the Atomic Energy Commission's ea- tablishments. * * * However, there is one defense of Hanford which is beginning to look vulnerable. That is its protection against the creeping industrial woes caased by America's expanding war production. By dint of industrial resourcefulness and certain emergency measures, production of plutonium has been maintained at a satisfactory rate with the rest of LEGAL NOTICES NOTICE OP CI-AIM DAY Notice Is hereby priven to all per- •onii that Monday, Aupust 6tli, 195] la the claim dale In the estate of Lydia LIvaiios.

Production of Plutonium has doubled since General Electric Co. took over in 1947, and the cost per unit has been cut in half. Nevertheless, the labor and material shortages which have been caused by the Korean-inspired mobilization are having an impact. G. R. Prout, GE vice-president in charge, says there are growing shortages of such things as construction materials and stainless steel. And there is growing need for such specialists as instrument mechanics—to maintain the elaborate precision instruments needed in the production of plutonuim —and draftsmen and other technicians. About 20 per cent of the 8000 GE Hanford employes are working a six-day week. Teams of expediters are keeping vital materials flowing in here at a reduced but steady rate. And training programs have been started to create the skills for which there is a bad shortage. As far as the shortage of personnel goes, the key lies in the amazing city of Richland, a few miles from the manufacturing site of Hanford, which houses all of GE's employes and their families. They are many extraordinary things about Richland. Having jumped from a population of 300 in 1943 to a city of 23,000 today, it is probably America's fastest-growing city. Every inch of land is owned by Uncle Sam and managed for the population by GE's Commercial Facilities Division. Individual private enterprises run such things as retail stores, restaurants, and laundries. The Little Egypt News in Brief A-BOMB WORKER is Mary i:. Chiedler, a chemist with the Technical Division's Analytical Section at the Hanford Works. She is working with a "hot" sample behind a lead-shielded hood. townspeople seem to be happy under the GE regime. Because the prime mission of Hanford is as an industrial enterprise, it is natural that Richland would have more of an industry- town atmosphere than the AEC's Los Alamos, which is built on a beautiful mountain plateau and has more of a university-town atmosphere. But Richland is an extremely pleasant industry-type city. * • * Its rows of neat, modern frame cottages compare favorably with any prosperous U. S. suburbs, as do its modern up-to-date shops.
