THURSDAY, MAY 19,1949 BLYTHEVTLLE <ARK.) COURIER NEWS FAGB Communist Student, Granted An Atomic Energy Fellowship; Tells AEC He's Loyal to U.S. By Oliver W. Ifewolf WASHINGTON, May 19. (A 1 )—Hans Frelstadt, avowed Communist ^old Congress yesterday that If his Atomic Energy Commission fellow- ^lilp Is taken away, the same sort of thing may hapixn later to "militant New Dealer, a Progressive, or even a Republican." The Austrian-born student defended his Communist beliefs but a the same time asserted he Is loyal to the United States. He said he woul quit the party If he believed it to be under foreign conrol. Frelstadt, whose fellowship hash— • stirred up a Congressional Inquiry In the AEC's multi-million dollsr atomic energy program, appeared before the joint Congressional Atomic Energy Committee. He Is a student at the University of North Carolina. His $1,600 fellowship for the study of physics is to become effective July 1, 1949. Earlier Senator O'Mnhoiiey (D- Wyo) chairman of a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee, said the AEC's spending bill for fiscal 1950 Frelsttidt's fellowship or for »ny other person of similar beliefs. "Once scientists and science students are discriminated against because of the political views or lawful political activities the whole concept of academic freedom as we have known It is endangered." F isttult told the committee. He read Into the record a letter which he wrote May 15 to Senator Hoey ID-NO. Hoey called the at- he Freistadt matter and thU In urn touched off the Joint com- nlttee's inquiry. Chicago'U. Graduate Frelstadt said he was graduated from the University of Chicago wllh a degree of bachelor of science In June, 1946, and with a degree of Master of science in August, 1948 He added that he served for two years In the Army during World W»r II and was discharged honorably with the rank of sergeant. In his letter to Hoey Frelstad said "I resent the Insinuation tha I am disloyal to this country, and therefore not entitled to the fellow ship." He went on: "I have never attacked the American form of government, and support the principals of the constitution of the United Slates. It true that I have criticized our present administration and economic organiatton. I have argued that our foreign policy Is suicidal. I have argued that, under Socialism, the American people could enjoy » standard of living the like of which we dare only dream of now." Admits Bring Red Fieistttdt made no bones about He said if at some later time he should be granted access to secret atomic Information "I would not disclose such data to unauthorised persons." "The constitution of the Communist party provides for expvkion of any member engaging In espionage," he told the committee. He said that he sees no "contradiction" between his loyalty to the United States and his membership In the Communist party. "Allegations that the Communist party Is under foreign control are false: they have not, and cannot be. proved In court," he testified. "If I thought for • minute that these allegations were true, I would resign from the Communist Party." Archbishop PropOMt Chang* in Praytr Book YORK, ftlf,, May l».
