Page 20 GREE1.EY T R I B U N E Wednesday Dec. 21, 1956 Three Members of Congress Would Stiffen Law on Smuggling Bombs on Commercial Passenger Planes .··EDITOR'S NOTE: The following slory discusses what should ·be done lo prevent placing of ·bombs aboard commercial air- ·craft. It was written by Bernard .'A.'Taller, editor ot The :monl Times-Call, whose com- fmunity was horrified by a crash ·"caused by a dynamite bomb ·killing 44 persons. · By B E R N A R D A, F A L L 6 R ''LONGMONT, Colo. «i -- Three members of Congress have pledged Iheir support for a public demand that something be done so thai a bomb explosion aboard ? commercial- passenger plane, such as caused .44 deaths in a Longmont sugar beet field Nov. 1, will never occur again. '.:·'Although no concrete plan has been evolved lo protect air passengers from f u t u r e smuggling of b'ohibs aboard a plane, several possible measures are being mulled over in Civil Aeronautics Board and Federal Bureau of Investigation conferences. : : jphn Gilbert Graham, 23, a Denver man arrested by the FBI and Charged wilh the bombing, is now undergoing sanity tests following his "arraignmcnl in Denver on n state charge of murder. He pleaded ''innocent and innocent by reason of insanity." G r a h a m was held originally on a -federal ·' charge thai prohibits sabotage of a national defense installation, which includes commercial planes. Because such a law docs not provide the death penalty, Graham was .charged in state court'with murder ot his mother, "Mrs. Da'isie King, 14. It is charged that he, smuggled a bomb aboard .the.Uniled Air Lines plane in her luggage.- . " Sen. Magnuson (D-Wash) and .'Sep. Keating' fR-NY) have said they, plan to introduce bills when Congress convenes in January setting the penalty at death for air- .lihe sabotage. - Rep. Hill (R-Colo) in whose congressional district the crash oc- cUrrcd, says legislation dealing with the problem should be handled by either the Judiciary or Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committees,"and promises to dis- 'ciiss it with both. ;";"I think we certainly ouKht lo have some legislation mil of the Judiciary Committee making such icls as the gentleman is accused of in this instance subject to the death penally. In oilier words, making sabotage punishable by death, if planted through, any transportation of baggage," Hill said. .' '-'I shall see that every consideration is given to proper legislation to protccl innocenl people from such sobojage." That raises the question of: What is proper legislation? · The CAB, whose job is deciding on regulations for airlines, through its right arm, the Civil Aeronaut- lei Administration, has asked aircraft manufacturers if they can design a plane so that a baggage compartment explosion would nol rfestroy the entire plane but merely blow off a door. :'The CAA also has asked insurance companies lo make certain policies offered plane passengers *jio ; nol provide inducement to po- . iential bombers. '·CAA officials say baggage checks Yren't feasible ilnlcss Ihey are done mechanically. They pninl oul: ' "If you had 60 passenge- wailing to taard a plane, and you look three minutes lo open each one's , luggage, you'd spend 130 mlnules, "enough' time to fly from New York to Miami." Various instrument makers have · 'come up wilh inspection devices which they claim may aid in detecting explosives in baggage. : The CAA reports that one solu- !tion would be lo put luggage on a conveyor bell and run it through some device which would delect the bomb. Since the Longmonl dis- "asler, at least two firms have of- 'fered such a solution. Anolher n*e- ·vice offered would act as an X-ray or fluoroscopic mrchine taking pic- "tures of Ihe conlenls o( the suit- 'case. ' ' · One CAA spokesman, however, discounted both plans -and warns of a danger that they might set off "a bomb. ; Other CAA officials seem to feel the possibility of a repetition of the Longmont horror is slight. '· However, records show lhat bombs have been placed aboard commercial planes before, and in all probability they will be again, A shocked nation, in letters to newspapers, makes it very* clear thai the people want responsible officials to make certain, through proper inspection regulations, l h a l such air mass murders shall never occur again. While the CAA is "studying" the problem, word comes that no decision has been marte yet--"but," says one CAA official, "we wanl to consider every safely precaution." Some decision may be expected, possibly in January, afler Congress convenes. Al least that's the indication from Reps. Hill and Keating and Sen. Jlagnuson. Chicago Grain CHICAGO M --.
