"And the only way force and violence would come into the picture would be If the big corporations «nd financial intersts would attempt to prevent the American people for instituting socialism when they so desired." Judge Harold R. Medina commented that "maybe that is the catch in'It." The witness asked, "the catch In what, sir?" The judge replied: "As to how you figured that out.

Too Many Clearances The atomic act of 1946, Hickenlooper went on, has specific and "mandatory" requirements for FBI Investigation and clearance of individuals prior to employment on atomic projects. He said the one exception, is that "temporary clearances" may be granted in cases of "genuine emergencies." He ' said the commission had abused the right of making-emergency clearance by granting 818 with access to restricted data, and 419 •without access to such data In 1941; granting 2.103 emergency clearances in 1948. and 359 emergency clearances thus far in 1949. "When I think of the evidence which has been presented to the volved In the investigation," Hickenlooper added. The senator said the 1949 atomic energy act clearly intends that the FBI "must" conduct an investigation and make a report to the AEC as to tile "character, loyalty and associations" of the Individuals seeking .employment. He said this also was the intent of the comrriit- tee in drafting the act, and added: "We felt that in these troubled times and because of the vital necessity for security, such a provision of law was necessary to prevent dangerous infiltration of our atomic energy program." Turning to the "emergency" section of tl\e law. Hickenlooper quoted Webster's dictionary as saying that an emergency is "an unforeseen combination of circumstances that call for immediate action." orel. He is survived by his wife.

Some committee members arc talking of calling Maj. Gen, Leslie ^Grooves to answer LiHenthal's assertion that the atomic project was "bogged down" when the commission took over from the military. Groves was In charge of the atomic project when the Army controlled it.

Hickenlooper. former chairman of the coneresstonal atomic committee. .said that he hnd "remonstrated" with the commission about clearances in "extensive correspondence dating back in 1947.
