(UP)I The world is engaged in a I live atomic anus race that I lead to the destruction of o Ition. W. A. Higinbotham. pioneer •atomic scientist, warned today. I Higinr.otham. Jiiairman of the iFeile-ration of American Scieniistf. Ij'wltncsscd the first atomic bomb lest I at Alatno^ordo, N. M.. a year ato |today. Referring to Ihir, "first yeav of I confusion." Higinbotham said in n |speech prepared for Ihc Inslitnli- World Cimlrol ot Aloniic ICn^ray jil the "atomic arms race is al- |renify \vell nuderwiiy." "Behind the scenes the s^a:".:h J for uranium is bring carried init • on a scale sr.-.passing thai of (he |gold rush of '4H," he declared. He urged lint tlie workl sirr/c- linslcad lo nut atomic energy to work Ifor (lie; benefit of mankind. Tiip •atomic develoiinicnt authority pro• posefi by the United Slates conkl Ibccomc "the Orst w : orld illduslry |run for the benefit of all." he said. America's only hope for uloin!': • age sccuri:y lies tiihcr in soui;;! Iworlil control of atomic rnrrfiy or "rclrcat as a nation inlo a ]>nhcy lof defense and dccciilraliwilra!." lie Isaid. Such a iclreal would require la regimentation and disr.iplrio Iwhich the American people \vouul |nevcr tolerate, he added. >V.iuts Peaceful I'Sjge Higinbothain scoffed al persons |\vho claim thai, yon can't "do this lor that b?ca(i.5c of human nature." lAnyone would prefer "the noace- Itimc benefits oi atomic rmirgy lo Ibeing vaporized in an ato-.uio cx- lj)losion." he said. I Two earlier speakers—Secretary |of Commerce Henry A. Wallace and John Hancock, member of the U.

California spent Hancock, by indirection, rejccisii week witii Ihe Soviet proposal for a .vorld mother, Mrs. atomic cnei(;y treaty. He said that, i family. such a treaty would not be enough I and that it must be backed up by authority which would make sure Ibat the agreement is observed. The U. S. atomic energy proposal would set up "an international authority wilh unequivocal power to (.wild'exercise full and effective control •iliza- j °ver atomic energy from bii-ih lo death." he explained. It also would provide "swift and certain punishment for violations," he added. New Liberty New* and family brief time las Mr. Slcnhenson's J. M.
