Ufy & Oban YBSaROQLD "1 don't let that atom bomb worry me. It's too much like lightning, and I always figure if lightning hurts me I won't know about it." Civilian Control A-Bomb Flayed WASHINGTON. July 17. VP) Rep. John E. Rankin (D.. Miss.), fiercely attacked legislation for civilian control of atomic energy, told the House today "there are spies" now Inside the Oak Ridge (Tenn.) atomic plant and that Investigators for the House committee on un-American Affairs are after them.- Rankin declared the bill might result in release of the secret of the atom bomb to communists. The world, he said, should be put on notice that "we are going to keep this bomb." The way to do It, Rankin advised, is to kill the legislation and leave the bomb In charge of the military. "I have never found a traitor graduated from West Point yet." the speaker declared. "Picture Washington If this was In the hands of the gang that murdered Mihailovlc Uhe Chetnlk leader executed In Yugoslavia) today," Rankin said. The legislation also was assailed by Rep. J. Parnell Thomas R. N. J ), who said Andrei Gromyko, Soviet representative on the United Nations Security council, "couldnt have drawn a better bill for Russia " "Every communist and every communist front organisation Is rooting for Its passage," he declared. The legislation drew stout de fense of Rep. Clare Boothe Luce (R.. Conn.), who said, "it allows our government to maintain and protect our monopoly of atomic weap ons . . . which otherwise might make their way Into the hands of our potential enemies."' At the end of the second day of debate the House found Itself far from a decision on whether to vest control of atomic energy entirely In civilians, to give the military a dominant voire, or to kill the legislation outright. The first test vote mav come tomorrowon a House MlilUry committee recommendation that there be at least one military representative on the proposed five-member control commission which the Senate unanimously decreed should be composed entirely of civilians.

'Living' In South To Be Improved NASHVILLE, Tenn.. July 17. UP) A modest rise in the living conditions of southern masses during the next 10 years was predicted today by James G. Maddox of Washington, D. C, specialist for the bureau of agricultural economics. "We will see in the South, providing there Is relatively full employment throughout the United States, a rate of industrial progress, and rate of decrease in farm population which potentially will give the South an increase In average family Income," he told the Institute of Race Relations, meeting under auspices of the American Missionary association. The South had 8.000.000 non-farm workers in 1940, Maddox said, but there ought to be 14.000,000 non-farm Jobs If the average family is to have an income of $2,500. "No other area of the country has so much at stake as the South," he declared, "for it needs opportunities for its growing population, markets for Its products, and industrial development to absorb masses of displaced farm workers." Fred Wale of Chicago, director of rural education for the Julius Rosenwald fund, asked "active and vigorous support" for a pending congressional bill which would provide federal aid for education. Equal educational opportunities for all children between five and 17 could be provided at a cost of $300,-000.000, he said, and this is Just the amount spent each day in prosecution of the recent war.

Moreell, federal coal mines administrator, announced tonight a govemment-union agreement covering pay and working conditions for mine supervisory workers the first such agreement reached In the history of the soft coal industry. The agreement applies only to 136 supervisory workers at four western Pennsylvania bituminous mines of the Jones and Laughlin Steel corporation but the case has been regarded as a test over the long-controverted issue of unionizing mine foremen. The coal industry for years has resisted all attempts to deal with supervisory workers through a union, contending they are part of management. Admiral Moreell made the agreement as operator of all bituminous mines under a government seizure order In effect for the past two months. The pact was made with the United Clerical, Technical and Supervisory workers of district 50. a branch of the United Mine Workers lAFL), headed by John L. Lewis. Separate agreements also were announced covering J. and L. clerical and technical workers and clerical and technical workers of the Industrial Colleries corporation, Johns town, Pa., a subsidiary of Bethlehem Steel corporation. The latter agree ment covered only the corporation's employees in its general office. Under the pacts, t'ae J. and L. supervisory workers affected were given wage increases of $1 85 a day plus overtime after 40 hours. These terms are retroactive to May 22, 1946. Speaker Insists Power Misplaced The need for redistribution of power to those in our state who are due it was pointed out by Rev. Maxie C. Collins, pastor of Piedmont Baptist church, when he spoke at a meeting of the Altrusa club yesterday afternoon. "Our legislature has encroached more and more upon the powers of the governor until today he has little left to do but make speeches, go fishing and' issue pardons." he said. "This violates our constitution." Mr. Collins, a former executive secretary of the Preparedness for Peace commission, emphasized further that the government of the state is one of the factors preventing expansion of its industries according to research carried on under his direction. A strong man in the position of governor would take the lead in putting modern business methods into the government and. in demanding observance of the constitution, give the state a sound business administration, he concluded.
