J-lafslad, a high official of the Atomic Energy Commission, has chidetl American industry for . failing to show more spunk in pushing atomic power development. If industry i.s as aggressive and en-' terprising as we think, he is asking, why has it not come up with some plans for commercial power reactors? Industry yelped .for years that the government's total monopoly in the field of atomic energy was holding back peacetime progress. It said thnt it wanted in on the field, and asked Congress to ease the restrictions. This was done, and rightly so, in the new Atomic Energy Act. Industry now is permitted to own and run atomic facilities, under government license: But according to Dr. Halfstad at least, the results have been most disappointing. He says there's a crying need for privately financed research reactors, in which to perfect an atomic fuel. But up until now, the scientist charges, "No one in the United States has had the initiative to design and build and finance" such a reactor. A commercial power plant is currently under construction at Shippingporl, Pa., The plant is due for completion in 1957. But this is a joint project of the AEC, the Duquesne Light Company and Westinghouse Electric, with more than half of the bill to be paid by the U. S. government. Scientists seem in agreement that hew atomic reactors which turn out cheap electical power can and will, be developed. But the way things look at the moment, private business is sitting back and waiting for Uncle Sam to do it Sooner or later he will. When that day finally comes however, the nation's private business concerns may find themselves barred from the field. For as Dr. Hafstad correctly warns, programs to bring them in would be open The challenge is clear and important—and the evidence in at the present is that business is failing to meet it. Or to go back to Dr. Hafslad : "If we can solve all the really diffi- ficult problems by use of len-thousand- dollar government brains, then what are are all the high-priced vice-presidents in industry doing?" It seems to us an excellent question and if industry has a rebuttal, we are more than anxious to hear it. Wasting Talent Speaking of brains and business firms (and this isn't Anti-Industry Day) a onetime professional teacher recently made a provocative speech which can stand a bit of repeating. Psychologist E. L. Stromberg, who now is employed in industry, thinks that most- of our business concerns are foolishly wasting much of their talent. Many intelligent workers, he says, are barred from responsible jobs—jobs they could easily handle—simply because they did not go to college. Fully half of our population, he says, is brainy enough to go through college— hut only a small percentage has actually had the change. Yet "company policy" often assumes that, unless a man has a sheepskin, "creative thinking and problem solving" both are beyond his power. In the viewpoint of Dr. Stromberg: "This waste of brain power is one of the great detriments from which management needs to free itself by recognizing that maturity, experience and growing knowledge exist in every man—not alone in the college man." That sentence is <|iiili' a mouthful, but it still makes plenty of sense. We are all for more education, and so is ex- teacher Stromberg, And there surely are millions of jobs which demand a specialized training that can only be had in a college. Rul making the sheepskin a fetish is a costly—anil shipicl—mistake. , VIEWS OF OTHERS Kremlin Evacuation The news that, Premier Geor[;l Mnlenkov IK moving out of the Kremlin will no doubt surprise a lot of people both tn Russia nnd without. The Premier and his colleagues are not only giving up the Kremlin as a residence, but as a .seat of government. Although the rea.son given for the move was thnt Ihe Kremlin will be made into a sort of museum public .shrine and be made open to the public, we wonder if there wnre others more pressing. Perhaps to the Russian* tills is good iiews f for their ntte old curiosity about wliat lay behind the grim fnrbodlng walls of the fortrcs-s-llkt! structure may be satisfied. It may seem to them to be a .sort of sacrifice on the part of thnlr rulers. What liiui long Intrigued them by its cool aloofness may be explored at last. Thus the nge-old symbol of almost mystic authority for Ihe Russian people will become domain. TlUs iuuy bt> IntiMidfd to Impress the people, that the HUtocnicy under which they live Is not us consolidated, UP nee less severe. At the siime time their povernment becomes more shadowy in Us dpce.ntf[ilr/,ed nature. However, they know It b. still hanging over them but like an invisible cloud. What Is on our mind Is the thought Unit perhaps the Kremlin \va.s in effect 'evacuated." from (ear of bpcominn "ground zero" for nil iitom- lc blast, H nd ns in the U .S. government, offices will be scattered for protection, some being moved mtdtMKvtnind.™Portsmouth vVu.i SUu. Don't Kill The Goose Gond soil irumngcment inehide.s plowing back nourishment into the soil to vU productivity. Good business niiinaReinent Includes plowing profits into industry to increase its productivity. But in each case, there must be incentive . A farmer who saw most of Ills increased crop confiscated would lose this incentive. By the same token, a Ux system that takes too much ot a company's earnings destroys tue incentives for industrial expansion .. , the constantly increasing expansion we must have to keep pace with the needs of our growing population for more loods. more jobs. plain facts of economic life should be pondered rarefully by every American. We must remember thnt it is possible to kill the goose that. Inys the golden egg. America is a country in which the initiative and enterprbe of people, spurred on by the profit motive, have created the greatest industrial system the world has known, But II v,'e stifle the motive—that Is, tf we tax it into negligibility—how long will the system itself stand':' And if the system falls to pieces, what will we have in its stead? Well, it could be socialism or It could be communism; it would not be Americanism as we have known it. Johnson City (Tcnn.) Press-Chronicle. SO THEY SAY The sentiment on (Sen.

"Now Look—We'll Need a Better Slogan Than That' Peter ft/son's Washington Column — Republicans Are Going AH Out To Keep Control of Congress WASHIGTON — (NEA? — AH- nut. Republican efforts to keep control of Congress have set a pace of political' activity in this town never before equaled during an off-year election. A veteran employe of the Republican National Committee left his office Into hist Saturday night, after having worked ail day, with the remark, "My gosh,' you'd think we were tryinR to elect Ike all over again, the way we're working" Usually Washington is n fairly quiet plnce during I be in it!term rnmrmign.s, with the activity concentrated in the .states and districts. But this Is whui's &oing on here now: The Republican national commit- ti'o i.s ope'nitniK on practically a seven-day week, Im.s increased its staff and hopes In be able to spend about a million dollars tn the next few weeks. Five persons have been added to the .speakers bureau, a couple to the public relations staff nnd there has been a big increase in the number of volunteers psked in for such chores as stuffing envelopes. A radio and TV expert, Bob Al- ILsan, borrowed from station KTTV in Los Angeles, is the most overworked new num. He's turning out 30-sccoud spot radio announcements, making .tip short films of Ike for local TV use and giving advice to all candidates who ask for It. The total paid committee stuff is now about 105 persons. A committee spokesman admits thai the million-dollar estimate way be n little optimistic because contributions are not coming in us fast as expected, and the results of the Maine election might put a damper on future collections. The National Citizens for Eisenhower congressional committee has a full-time paid staff ol 25 persons with, about 10 full- time volunteers loaned from various organizations. Its budget is a half million, two thirds of which Is already collected. It came into existence .several months ayo nnd will fold after the election. The committee caiid itself a political service organization. The group acts its a clearing' house for good ideas and programs. It has two trailer trucks, loaded down with barrage balloons, campaign pamphlets and GOP films, touring the ill districts in which the committee is helping candidates. The citizens group is also offering any kind of help to candidates which they happen'to need. One of the most professional and least publicised groups in the thick of the campaigns is the Republican National Congressional Committee. It Is a permanent organization financed by contributions, is run by OOP congressmen and has a staff of about 16 public relations men and eight persons who do statistical research and work on financial matters. The staff includes artists who design billboard ads, posters and newspaper ads for specific candidates; speech writers who have prepared kits with material on every issue, and experts \vhn turn ou( films and do special research. Us counterpart on the Senate side. The National Republican Senatorial Committee, has only two permanent staff members. Its main job is to see that each Republican senatorial candidate gets his legal limit of $5000 for campaign expenses and that other money isn't spent illegally in his behalf. Secondarily it advises candidates on special techniques, telling them what issues to hit hard and what issues to avoid. Independent of the national committee, but working closely with it, is the National Federation of Young Republicans with a staff of two men. Through a network of volunteers they are helping to or- gnnlze a young farmer group and nre making a special pitch to "first voters." One of its goals is to have two young Republicans at each polling place in the 35,000 precincts which are considered "marginal." Last but not least of the major independent GOP units with headquarters here i.s the National Federation of Republican Women. Its permanent, full-time staff consists of six women nnd about -10 fairly full-time volunteers doing various chores. Its purpose in life is to get out the women's vote for Republican candidates. There's close liaison among most of the groups on strategy and policy, with the exception of the women and the citizens-for-Ikc groups. The latter operate fairly independently. On the Democratic side there's just as much overtime being put in but they don't have the people nor the funds. They have nothing comparable to the ritizens-for-Ike, the national committee staff has 60 persons and there are only five j persons each on the Senate and (congressional election staffs.
