FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK,) COURIER NEWS Editors Eye Atom Secrecy m. m , . 4h ' . m *.- ' ' ' ' • . ' B FAOB PI** Nation Said Hearing Peak Of Readiness By Sterling F. Green WASHINGTON, April 21. (/Pi- Pour hundred editors, assured that on is nearing its postwar of armed readiness, turned a critical eye today on atomic bomb secrecy. Members of the American Society of Newspaper Editors were told by Rep. Mahon (D-Texas) that the 1951 defense dollar will be wisely and prudently spent. "We'll soon be In a better position of readiness to fight than we have been since the end of the shooting in 1945," reported Mahon, chairman of the House armed services appropriations subcommittee. Mahon said legislators were convinced that $1^,000,000.000 will provide the armed might needed to discourage' any Russian designs, in spite of General Divight D. Eisenhower's testimony that another would plug some weak spots. tvery Flylnjr Saucer "We don't propose to go up and down In our spending with every flying saucer that skims across the horizon." the Texan said. "We want to develop a steady, adequate program and stick to It." Though 'the Soviet government is spending 40 per cent of it.s income on defense as against this country's 32 per cent, Nfahon said, the Russians lack long range bombers "or any other "overwhelmingly powerful arm with which to strike directly at the United States." The editors' uneasiness over atomic censorship was reflected in todibfs program. On the platform of <|K ASNE's annual meeting here they matched Dr. Henry D. Smyth, member of the Atomic Enegry Commission, against an editor who last month had to burn an issue of ills magazine because the AEC objected to a story in It. The editor was Gerard Piel. editor of the 100-year-old Scientific American. Because of an article on the tydrogen bomb, 3.000 copies of the monthly were burned and the type melted down," at AEC's instigation. Incident Poses Question The magazine said the Incident raised the question "whether the commission is thus suppressing information >which the American people need in order to form Intelligent judgements on this major problem." The article, by Haris Bethe, Cornell physicist and former physics chief at Los Alamos, was printed at about the time that the AEC Issued a request for all persons how or formerly employed by it to withhold discussion of the hydrogen i boqj^ project: -X. . , ... > '-^ •fiterday's meeting heard Basi ; I/. ^Palters,. chairman of the society's committee on world freedom of information, caution againsl • "moves to bring about control bj the armed forces of the atom," he added: "It surely Is possible for newspapers, without violating any sec urity, to discuss all questions on the future of the bomb so that th< public does not abdicate to politicians and military men 1U own responsibility to decide." " Walters, executive editor of thi Chicago Daily N e^v s and athei Knigh newspapers, advised the society to "keep the 'spotlight o: publicity" on officials who handle atomic problems. No Hyslerla Reason At last night's session, the editors were told by the Army's asslstan chief of staff for planning that thi recent shooting down of an Ameri can plane by Russian fighter plane "it not a reason for any hysteria. Hep. Mahon, in the course of questlon-and-answer session, refer red to IJeut. Gen. Alfred Gruenthe an editor's query: does the shootini over Baltic waters maek wor mor Imminent? Gruenther said American militar leaders believe "warfare is not lin mlnent unless such incidents are Pjated." The attack leaves the mil Iftfy "uneasy about the spirit be hind the attack on our unarmc plane," he added, but the steps tak en so far by this government appea sufficient. Program Is Adequate Mahon told editors that Congres Is providing an adequate program of military research to keep this country to the fore In the development of new weapons'. Since 1947, he said, the Unlte.1 States has spent $2,800,000,000 on research—more than It took to develop the atomic bomb. Within a few years, he said, the country may possess a guided missile that will fly "5.000 miles and hit ths target." Those who worry lest the mllltaiy RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.

Sunday and Monday OODY TIME By Howard W. Blakeslee Associated Press Science Editor BOSTON, April 21. (ff>) — A new blue baby operation, which might be called three-leaf clover surgery, was reported to the American college of physicians today. The operation is an Improvement over the original blue baby surgery ot Dr.. Alfred Blalock, Johns Hopkins. The new operation was Invented by Dr. Blalock and Dr. Russell Brock, London, England. One of Dr. Blalock's colleagues, Dr. William Scott, Baltimore, reported It. The blue baby's color is due to the failure of the right side of the heart to pump blood Into the lungs. The failure Ls for one of two reasons. Either the funnel at the top of the heart, through which, the blood passes on its way to, the lungs, Is too narrow, or the valve at the top of the funnel does not work properly. The - first operation gets around this trouble by making a detour for the blood to pass around both the funnel and the valve. It Ls not a cure. Occasionally the bypass fails N E W Boz Openi Week D»yi 1:M p.m i: Matinee Saturdays £ Sundiji ' Mat-San. 1 p.m. Cont Bhowtni, Manila, Ark. to grow as fast as the rest of a baby's heart. The new operation is used when the valve Is at fault. This valve Is shaped like a three-leaf clover. II lies flat on top of the funnel. The leaves lift as blood passes upward through them. But they won't bend downward, and no blood can leak back Into the heart below." The trouble comes when the three leaves' edges grow together. The new operation uses a knife to cut the leaves apart. Usually two cuts are enough. This Is done by pushing a sharp, pencil-shaped probe Into the heart. The probe has a sheathed knife at Its end. The knife makes the separations In the clover leaf. Studies are now under way to find means of enlarging the heart funnel when it Li too narrow. I: Also Tirsf Wjihi'ville SIiowiiiK 38W I'lus Carlouns Sat.
