THURSDAY, JULY 7, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVElf Lilienthal Cites Record of AEC 'Mismanagement' Charge* Answered By Commission Head Bv OUver W. DC Wolf ' WASHINGTON, July 7. (AP) — ' David E. Ulienthal said yesterday the United States was "virtually unarmed atomically" In 1M7 when A the Atomic Energy Commission was f. created, Formally answering charges o! "incredible mismanagement" by Senator Hickenlooper (R-Towa), Ulienthal said the AEG couldn't be poorly managed If Its product ion of A -bom bs was as good as the Iowa senators admits It is. LiHenthal said the commLsskm's whole program was directed toward giving this country "unquestioned and unqualified leadership" in the atomic field. For tiia^ reason, he said the commission had to ignore many "useful" things it might have done and had to put up with some "careless, siup.d and negligent" personnel at times. Pursuing a policy of letting nothing "stand In the way of arming the nation atomically" has meant "sticking our necks out' 'and disre- arditig "bureaucratic procedures," the AEC chairman went on, but it has also gotten a job done. And, drawing on the Bible, Lilienthal declared: "By their fruils ye shall know them." I-iilienthal was in Ihe witness chair of the Senate-House Atomic Committee, formally replying to Hickenloopei's charges. Scientist Testifies PV>r the last f' vc we eks. the commute* has heard Hickenlooper cite specific matters which he said sup- t * ( ported hLs charges. The AEC has 'defended and replied as these matters were brought out but Is now launching into a more detailed defense. „ Lilienthal said hi.s opening statement was intended "to develop a setting for the witnesses to follow." He called Hickenlooper's language "very extreme" and said the churget! were of the "gravest possible character and so reavdcd by the country." Dr. Robert F. Bacher, atomic scientist and former member of the commission, backed up Lilien- thill's claim that the atomic project wfus in a bad way when the commission took over. "I was deeply shocked to find how few atomic weapons we had at that time," Bacher said. j Bacher added the project had had " n dramatic decline at the end of the war," which wasn't any reflection on T ,t. Gen. Leslie R. Groves an'* the Army officers who built the wartime development, "It is more or less inevitable that at the end of the war the atomic development should col- Janse and it did." In contrast Bacher said, under two years of AEC direction there has been "very marked success" In rebuilding the Las Alomos, N.M., _ laboratory into a strong research if and development center. He s«id that technical problems at the Hanford (Wash.) site which were "very serious" now have been "rather successfully solved." d«y of June 1960.
