THTTMDAT, TONE 1, 19« BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE TRKEB THE NATION TODAY I Curtain Rises on Act I In Show In Which Senator Hickenlooper Must Prove Atom Bomb Charges By Jun« Marluw WASHINGTON, June 2. (If,—The time: The atomic age. The place: A huge room. The play: The first great indoor drama of the atom open to the public. * The scene: Blazing lights, whirring cameras, tense senators and congressmen, newsmen scribbling ^'furiously, hundreds of the curious pnbhc neck-craning In thfc packed room. The stars: Senator Hickenlooper, Iowa Republican, and David E. * Llllenthal, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, facing each other stonily across a shining mahogany 'able. The plot: Hickenlooper says Llll- enthal "mismanaged" the nation's atom program, is unfit to run it. Ullenlhal, "Damn mad," denounces Hickenlooper lor "smearing," says in effect: "Prove what you say." Prologue: Senator McMahon Connecticut Democrat and chairman of the congressional commitUe hearing the case, says: there'll be a "fair opportunity.. .to throw a searchlight on the facts." Big Shaw Start. Curtain rises on Act I: Tight lipped Hickenlooper sets out t< prove what he's said, fetches little, cards out of his various suit pockets in such orderly fashion that h must have memorized where eac card was. He looks at each card, reads of worked tor the AZC and quit or hl(t«d job* within the AEO, aslu ilHenthal 11 he knew that man, what he though o( him. Hickenlooper says these many hifls and changes all add up to Md management In the AEO. L1I1- 'nthal says It's not easy to fet or :eep quillfied people. He says "men find It very discouraging to have to spend a> much time explaining whit they have >een doing, as they do in getting :hings done." Act 2, 3. 5, 10, 20, 40, etc.: No one :an predict how many acts there dll be, how many days this will go on, or where It will end. Up t* Hiekentoeper It's up to Hickenlooper to prove the charges he's made against Lilienthal. The tatter has challenged him. This much seems certain If Hickenlooper tries 10 provi bad management by showing mis takes in details, then— Ltltenthai will try to show tha he and the other four AEO com mlssloners can't be accountable fo every detail if they're going tc keep their eyes on the big target the whole, wide program. Although Hickenlooper Is shoot , LIUenthal made it clear In yw- •erday't hearings that Hlckenloop- r's charge of "Incredible mlsman- gement" must be aimed at all five EC commissions, not him alone. Hickenlooper has started out by rying to narrow the field in which tie investigation can be made. Ulienthal certainly will try to de- end hiniielJ on a wide front, not a narrow one. Before It's over, this Investlga Ion may take weird turns or fizzle nit. But Senator McMahou pro mists a wide look. the name ot some official who Ing solely at Lilienthal, The first American "mint" was he glass fatcory founded at James- own.
