PA08TWO 1LTTH«V!LLK (ARK.) OOUKIKK THURSDAY, JULY 81, 1»« THI NATION TODAY— Deep Mystery Surrounds Talks On Atomic Bombs Bf JAIMM Mmrlow WASHINGTON, July 2L (4V—Britain «nd Ctnida know how to m**« •n atom bomb. Neither has made one. Canada doesn't want to. Britain d«*. The only one either could milte Is the old-fashioned, 1945 model. Neither know* how to mike the up-to-date kind that we can turn out now. We're left them behind because this country hasn't shared with them the Information on malting the most recent model. The highest government officials here have been having hush-hush talks. From what newsmen can learn tho«e talk* are about giving more atomtc information to our two wartime aliirs. But there'* a bit of a mystery^- • . n why thoae t a lies are occurring it all at this time. Canada say.' It Hasn't done anything to bring on ihe Lalks. And an informed Briton here says his country hasn't asked for any Information recently. This '* the background: I'Durlng the war this country, Britain and Canada cooperated Ln nalcing in the United States the >ombs that were dropped in Japan. rhty shared information then. Sharing D»U Stopped in IMC Then the sharing stopped—full (harir-g did— in 1M6 when Congress parsed the atomic energy act. This ict said ouz government no longer ioulri give any nation— this rncTud- *d Britain and Canada— our most lecret information on bomb-mak- •ng. So, since then, those two countries have received some informa.- ;lon from us but have been shut >ff from the most secret stuff. Now ;omes a question: How do we know Canada and Britain know how to -Tiake a bomb but not the 1949 mod••1? Robert f. Bacher, formrr member »f the Atomic Energy Commission ind physicist who worked on the first atom bom b d u rin g the war, told a congressional committee on July 7 that the wartime cooperation aetween the U.S., Britain and Canada wa.< quite complete. He xafd Britain known how to naSce thf bomb and Lt getting ready io make one. But lie pointed out that there are long steps between getting ready to make a bomb, then making the first one, then turning them out in quantity. Trmmait Called July 14 Farley Since the British haven't been in »n the recent knowledge niush-hnah meeting, this time called by the congressional committee. Again same of the biggest men took part. A«ln they refused to go into detail* afterwards. Bu t why the sudden secret talks about sharing secrets? Yesterday C.D. Howe, acting prime minister of Canada, said his government had no connection .with the talks. He said his country knows how to mike a bornb. although maybe not "us good as the Americans turn out," but doesn't want io make anv. As Tor Information about the bomb. Howe says there's some Information his country doesn't get from us but Is satisfied with what it Is getting. Here In Washington, a Briton, who ought to know whit he's talking about, told this writer the British have asked for Information from time to time—and sometimes got wh«t they wanted, sometimes didn't—but haven't asked recently. He. loo, says his country h enourh information to make the bomb, although not the latest kind. .bomb-making, they'd have to start with the knowledge they had when we drew the curtain on them in IM*. or what additional knowledge ihey have gained in their own work, But who says we have a 1MB .

So much for the background: On the night of July 14 PreM- ient Truman called • .secret talk. Some of the biggest men In gov- srnment took part: Secretary o( •tat* Acheaon, Secretary of De- fen** Johnson, General Dwight Eisenhower, members Df the con- rreuiona) committee on atomic energy. When they came out of the talk ihey wouldn't tell reporters what It s-as ibout.
