He recommended n uniform patent policy for all agencies,' reiflorv- ing to the government all rights to most Inventions by its employes and those of researchers under contract to the government. Clark based his report on v four- year study requested by the late President Roosevelt. The Attorney General urged establishments of a government patents administration to direct the new program. It would apply ft single policy to all government agencies in place of varying procedures now in practice. It would have particular bearing on the War and Navy Departments and to a lesser degree on the Federal Works Agency. The report said these are the only agencies ·which still contend that patent ·ights must be left to the employe n order to induce him to invent." President Truman made the report public "In order to obtain full and frank discussion by all individuals and · organizations con- corned, including private companies, educational institutions, and ,hc interested government departments and agencies." The report said government research in the last five years has .skyrocketed into a multi-billion dollar pros-ram concerned primarily with aviation, transportation, communications, ordnance and atomic energy. After asserting that federal participation in postwar research "will be large and of major significance," reached this main .conclusion: "Inventions financed with public funds should inure to the benefit of the public, and 'should not bo- come a purely private monopoly under which the public may be charged for, or even dented, the use of technology which it ha financed" * / Legion Sets Final Plans j For Weslaco Event Monday WESLAOO, June 7--Plans for a street parade proceeding the Ajner- Ican Legion" catfish and corn fritter fry, Monday at 8 p.m. are all complete according to Garland H, Smith, posfc commander.
