*AGB TTTO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COUntEn NKWS THURSDAY, MAY 26, THE NATIpN TODAY Protecting of Nation's Secrets Poses Difficult Problem tor Those Seeking to Keep U.S. Free Br J*BIH M»rlow WASHINGTON, May 2«. (#)—When a man Is being educated with government money, how fur should the government go In trying to find out whether he's * Communist? Th»t'» one of the Important question* emerging from the present rumpus over the way the atomic energy commission docs tilings. Congress is investigating the AEO now. It all started this way: Because this country badly needs the best scientific brains it can develop In -the field of atomic energy. Congress has voted the AEC millions of dollars to encourage and help educate outstanding young The work they're picked to do is of two kinds: secret work for Hie government In the field of the atom- or non-secret work, using some product of the atom, such as In cancer research. The AEC itself doesn't do the picking. It leaves that to the National Research council, made up of distinguished older scientists who discouraged from entering It at nil If they thought they had to go through an FBI examination of [heir lives. And— If an Fill prohc starts In this field, simply because government mones is being used although no secret work is Involved, it's the rirst step toward opening the clcor to the FBI In other fields of education. Dr. Alfred N. Richards, president of the National Academy of Sciences, SBld this would Introduce InU our system ot education "a type ol governmental Interference which U not too far away from what the Nazis' had and what the Russians nave now." But Senator Vnndenberg, Mkch- Igan Republican, raised a point which throws the whole question in- can judge the talent of the younger men. , ,, The council has been primarily interested In a young mall's brains, not his political beliefs, and it combs the colleges for the uest s-ienlilic minds It can find. Say* Loyally Oath Not Enough A young man chosen for secret work doesn't get the Job unless the FBI checks and is sure he's not a communist. If he's chosen for non- secret work, there's no FBI check. This month the Senate discovered that a young scientist chosen for an AEC fellowship in non-secret work was a Communist. That started the storm. Senators questioned David B. Lii- ienthal, chairman of the AEO, about this case. He said he does not think the government should spend money educating a Communist, buk- He Indicated opposition to the Idea .of an FBI Investigation of young scientists cliosen for non- secret work. (Everybody is agreed for the need of an FBI check on people doing secret work.) But-if jlienthal is opposed to letting a Communist get government money for an education, how can such a Communist be spotted without an FBI investigation? Ulienthal and representatives o the research council say now thn In the future any fellow doing evei non-secret work will first be nskei to Uke an oath of allegiance to Ihl country and swear he Is not a Com munlst. Several senators—particularly Re publican Senator Hlckenlooper c Iowa, who thinks Ulienthal ougli to he fired—said a loyalty oath Isn enough, that an FBI check Is uec ess»ry. '• posen Touchy Problem B^l «hy should the top sc^entis —•net lillenthal, who says' fie iw cepta their judgment in the' matte —be against an FBI tnvcsligntlo of young scientists not doing secret work? They argue: Some of those badly needed young scientists In the atomic fielrt would to even sharper focus. He said: "I BUCKS 'N' BUBBLE That compact slack of jack under Ihe plastic bubble is a mere one million dollars. It's on display at a Waukeshii, Wis , hank. Carl Taylor, left, bank president, admires the duugh. Neediest to soy, an extra large start of guards it on duly to protect 11. Is unthinkable to me that Communists should be educated at pub lie expense." But how far can that idea be carried? What of the veterans re ceivlng their education In colleges now at government expense under the OI BILL of Rights? Should every one of them be 1n- estigated by the FBI to see whe- ler he's a Communist? Just where the line drawn?

(/!') —Only the public's side remains to >e heard in the 18-month fight waged by Southwestern Bell Tele- Jhone Co. for a permanent rate .ncrease In Oklahoma. The company yesterday told the State Corporation Commission it Das finished presenting Its own case. The state has completed Us argu- meiHs against the raise. However. James Welch, attorney for the commission, a-sked commis- sion Chairman Reford Bond for four days to hear public testimony from officials or citizens of areas that would get the new rates. Bond set four days beginning June 21 for the public's hearing.
