MONDAY, MAY 1, 1950 iJLYTHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS f, AGE TRMB Tlw tin** Stitf*r in U.S. — Disloyalty, Security Risks Are Not Alike By James SS-«rlow WASHINGTON, May 1. (ff) — There's a difference between a disloyal government worker and one who's considered a security risk. Disloyalty means )«st that. A se- jklty risk may be completely loyal W still be a danger to the nation's cafety. ' In some cases both are handled the same way by the government both are fired. In others, the security risk can keep a governmen Job. On disloyalty the lines are sharp and clear. Under the President' loyally program every person con filtered disloyal is lo be fired. He may be considered disloyal i he's a member of the Communls Party or if he belongs to organlza lions called subversive by the at n' the Commerce Department he might be moved to a non-sensitive ob. In the Agriculture Department where there's practically no security problem, he might not be considered a risk at tvH. A person whose agency wants to 'ire him because he's a security risk las no appeal outside the agency. Its decision Is final. It's different with a person considered disloyal. If his agency puts that label on him and fires him, he can appeal to the government's top group on loyalty: the President's loyalty review board. If that board thinks he's disloyal lie's finished. There's no other ap- tjcal. If the board clears him of disloyalty, he can be restored to hi job, or if his agency wishes, to a Ics. sensitive Job. torney general. IJnes Are Not siiirp But the lines are neither sharp nor simple on a security risk. There Is no single rule throughout the government for handling such a cane. In one agency a man miRht be classed ns a security risk. The same man In another government agency mftcht not he considered a risk at all. What happens to a man labeled a security risk depends on the kind of government agency hi which he works. For example: State Department officials say they act In the belief that everything which the dcoartment handles Involves national safety, or security. So in that 'agency, they say. every Job is considered "sensitive," more or less. That is: now, or sometime, It may Involve national safety, "•'s a little different In the com- ve department. Some, but not Elevators Run Again in New York Buildings NEW YORK, May 1. (/r>—Elevat- ors started running again today for weary apartment house dwellers as a four-day strike o' 12,000 service employes in 1.000 Manhattan buildings was called off. A wage-hour dispule between the AFL employes and the apartment landlords was sent to a fact-finding board late yesterday. Employes began returning to work immediately and ncvmal service was expected today in all the buildings. The strike affected some of the most fashionable'apartments In the city. L.

Look at Jones Now look at what a security risk Is and what may happen to him. depending on the. agency where he works: 1. Jones, completely loyal, is n good worker, sober on the .lob. But at night, sometimes or often, he gets drunk and talks too much. In the non-sensitive agriculture department that might not innke much difference, as long as Jones did his work and kept out of trouble when drunk. In the Commerce Deportment, if Jones held a sensitive Job, he mipVit be considered a security risk: He mteht blab secrets when drunk. Tite Commerce Department could do one of two things: fire Jones on the grounds that he was "unsuitable" for government work; or transfer him to a non-sensitiv« job. But State Department officials i that if Jones worked there and U- considered » security risk, he'd May Uni- The icinporary settlement was announced by Arthur S.

" \ Smith Has Trouble J. Smith Is found to be a homosexual. He's completely loyal but because of his secret sex habits may some day run into an individual or group which would blackmail him. In the State Department, he'd be considered n security risk »nd let out. officials there sny. Officials of other government agencies, sensitive arid non-sensitive, told this writer they too would get rid of a homosexual on the .grounds that he was "unsuitable" for government employment, not Just because he was a security risk. \ Many other examples of security risks could be given. For Instance: Brown is loyal but his wife is related to a Communist. In the State Department that mi"ht class him as a security risk.
