FRIDAY, APRIL 14,1950 BLYTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COUTCTEn NEWS Senators Split on Atomic Defense Groups Argue Over Inquiry Into Problem By Oliver W. De, Wolf WASHINGTON, April 14, (/p)— top administration senators pitted against each other toy In a dispute over an Inquiry into the nation's civil defenses a- gainsl atomic era warfare. The issue: What Congressional committee shall study prepardncss measures against mass disaster and destruction from A-bombs, hydrogen bombs, or germ warfare? The unusual Jurisdictlonal battle developed between Senator McMahon (D-Conn), chairman of the Senate-House Atomic Committee, and Senalor Tydings <D-Md), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Tydings is a member of the atomic group. The scrap ultimate!;- will have to be resolved by the Senate Itself through action on a resolution which Tydings Introduced yesterday at the request of his committee. To Check All Defeenws The resolution would direct the armed services group to Investigate the nation's civil defenses against all types of possible warfare, including atomic, chemical and biological. It would report back to the Senate with recommendations for legislation. Tha resolution was referred to the Armed Service* Committee where approval would b assured. But McMahon later blocked any immediate move In this direction, by asking the Senate to reconsider this action. IcMahon told reporters he want- to hold up action on the resolution until his committee had had' further tlm» to study it. He said the Atomic Committee, because II If * Senate-House group, could "function more expeditlously" than a jingle Senate committee. To Agree on Time . TydlngB, In a separate Interview, •aid he would have to get together, with McMahon and agree on a time to debate ths matter. Personally, he added, he thought the Armed Services Committee had Jurisdiction. Both th« Atomio Committee and a Senate armed services subcommittee headed by Senator Kefauver (D-Tenn) have been inquiring into the state of civil defenses, with the Atomic committee having the headstarfc. It was this duplication which led . Kefauver yesterday to make public an interim report. demanding, among other things, that the atomic group get out of the picture. "It Is so clear that It to a matter jjl pertaining to the common de- Tpfnse generally that TC cannot understand why the Joint committee would persist In the position that they should have Jurisdiction over it," Kefauver »ald in the report, which also was signed by Senator Cain (R-Wash). 200 Box Car Loads Their report said at one point: "Some of the weapons that might be used against us may well result in a single disaster requiring thousands of Iralned medical personnel "The need for organized relief Is apparent, Furthermore, In one week In such a disaster, more than 200 box car loads of supplies would be heeded for initial treatment alone." The report spoke also of such of problems as banning any new establishments the Washington area, safeguarding against epidemics, scattering of vilal factories and assembling of fire-fighting reserves. McMahon replied to Kefauver by making public correspondence which he had had with the Tennessee senator on the subject. He argued the atomic group had jurisdiction because it alone had "intimate knowledge of atomic and hydrogen bombs;" the bombs are now the "overriding reason" for concern about civil defense, and Ihe Defense Department Is assigned less then one-third of the total civil defense effort on the federal level Neither McMnhon nor Kefauver made any attempt to conceal the gravity with which they view the civil defense problem. McMahon said that It Is so enormous and complex that it jurisdiction committees. of cuts across the ill Congressional Two-Pants Suit Stage Comeback NEW YORK, April 14.
