, JAN T . 5, 1953 X, Should US Share Atomic Secrets with England? ' (UiJitors uulc: Suggestions are mounting (hat the United Slates ami Britain swap some atomic se- •rrrls la- (iieir mulictl lieupfit. M'ill Congress modify the secrecy ban h Imposed six yearn ago? A survey of sentiment reported below is ll'c last of four irllcles on atomic; energy.) By CHAKI.KS K. BARRETT WASHINGTON Wl — The new Congress lodny cast a cool eye toward high-level suggestions from •both siitcs of the Atlantic that (he Jnitsd -Slates should lower Us secrecy bars and share again sotne atomic information vdlh Britain. Incoming congressmen willing (o take a siand in an Associated T*ress survey lined up almost a 2-! against' an open Interchange of data with (he ally who teamed Jointly with the U. S. In developing the first atomic bomb in World War II. Hut there was a lively argument on the issue, and many lawmakers said they have not made vip their minds. Favorable replies voiced such views as lhe.se: Rep. Cooley (D- NO, "Britain is our best ally"; Rep. fieely-Brown (H-Conn). "The free world will stand or fall to- golher'; mid 'Rep. Hyde <K-MD), "Either we're allies or we're not." And (lie more numerous negative side sounded these themes: Rep.--Holifield (D-Calif), "British security system doubtful, too dangerous": Rep. Gross (R-Iowa), "In the light of Britain's refusal to aid according to her ability hi the Korean War . . . i would not make available to her any Information whatever." At any rate, the Congress con- ^•cning Saturday seems certain to •sice a long look at the proposition ~n the lljfhl of paramount new developments 10 years after the first successful atomic chain reaction In December, 1942. raised the curtain on the atoniic age. These developments include (1) Britain's first explosion of an atomic bomb, (2) progress In the U. S. on a hydrogen or "hell" bomb, C3) new demands for steps toward atomic power lor industry, and W a growing insistence from free world" military leaders that they share enough knowledge about U. s. atomic weapons lo help plan a common defense. Britain. Canada and the u. S. worked hand-Iri-glove on a joinl atomic program until the ties were cut In 1946 by a U. S..]aw forbld- d'ng the passing of any American atom information to a foreign lioyer. The tight security regulations of (1:5 1946 Atomic Energy Act were rp'.ixer! slightly by 'Congress In ].".>!. The 1051 amendment permits i'-'i U. S. to' share with friendly nilioiis certain atomic energy dnla outside the field of military'weap- ons—such things as reactor development, treatment of source materials and production ol fisslon- able matter. But sharing of information about alotnlc weapons is still prohibited Prime Minister Churchill said recently he thinks Britain and ttV U. S. should shore Information again, after President-elect Eisenhower takes office Jan. 20. Churchill reportedly will press this point, using Brlloin's atomic explosion.as a: bargaining point. In talks with Eisenhower in New York next week. And In Washington, the State and Defense Departments and Atomic Energy Commission are eported to have agreed informally that Ihe 19t6 act should be modified at least so Ihe O. s. could give some information on atomic weapons to its North Atlantic Treaty allies. Obviously, Eisenhower and his Incoming administration hold the key lo whether such a program will be recommended lo Congress. Eisenhower hn.5 given.no hlnl ot his attitude yet. In the survey. Incoming Congressmen across the country were asked whether they favored a return to the World War II interchange of atomic reserach Information between the u. 8 and Britain. The score among the 258 out of 531 lawmakers who replied: Definitely yes, 30. Inclined favorably, 25. Definitely no, 78. Inclined no, 24. Go slow, proceed wllh caution, etc., 25. Noncommittal. 78. Republicans showed more hostility to the Idea than Democrats. GOP House members lineil up 60 lo 20 on the more or. less negative slcle, with 10 others saying go slow; not » single GOP Senator gave a definite yes and only three indicated support, while 10 Republican Senators gave a definite no and four were inclined toward opposition. House Democrnts took a generally negative stand by a 29-25 count, with 13 others saying only they would be cautious toward any such move; Senate Democrats lined up 10 more or less in favor, 24 generally opposed. Several lawmakers who look a generally negative view said (hey might go along with a very limited exchange of miliiary Information if they were sure no lechnical secrets on bomb manufacture would be disclosed.
