Atomic Security Should Get Top Priority in Washington A great and continuing tumult is heard in Congress and elsewhere about the danger of Communist spies and subversives in our midst. But too little of this highly advertised concern has apparently been focused on the security of our most supremely vital secrets — those dealing with atomic weapons. How unfortunate this might be for all Americans can be ganged from the startling disclosures on atomic leaks just reported by Douglas Larsen, an NEA correspondent, and Doyle Kline, managing editor of the Albuquerque (N. M.) Tribune. It is ironic that so much of the taxpayers' money is being spent in various Communist investigations without seriously probing the most critical area of all — A-bomb security. In New Mexico are concentrated several important atomic weapons centers. Here it was that Klaus Fuchs, David Greenglass, Harry Gold and the Rosen- bergs collected the information that enabled Russia to produce an A-bomb far faster than Soviet researchers themselves would have made it possible. Of all the things Russian spies have learned from us, nothing equals in importance the secrets Fuchs and his allies stole from Los Alamos. Of all the information the Soviet Union may now pick up, nothing is so precious as the atomic data being amassed and used in New Mexico. That is why it is so shocking to hear that a 1953 spy can gather this kind of information with great ease, simply by making a tour of bars in Albuquerque or Santa Fe, or by listening to airline passengers' casual conversation, or by making friends with the neighbors' kids. Today the Russians don't have to plant a spy inside an atomic installation, as they did a few years back. A. spy now needs only to be a good listener, a social mixer, a tireless walker — from bar to bar -r and a handy man with a pencil. Many men dealing witli atomic matters understand the gravity of the problem. The question is, what to do about it. Represented in New Mexico are the Atomic Energy Commission, the A i r Force, the Navy and the Army. Attempt- Ing to safeguard their secret activities •re security agents from seven separate units of the ftderal government. And yet the secrets spill out. Security officers say frankly that things arise which cut across the boundaries of the laws they now work under. What they need, they say, is a new l»w to coordinate all atomic security. That may be far from the whole an- swer, but it eeemi imperative that they should have at least that. In the long run, it will very likely r«- quire a good deal of original thinking to figure out how to bottle up successfully the 20,000 atomic workers who are "walking dictionaries" of America's vital secrets. This is an enterprise our statesmen, lawmakers and top security men ought to give the highest priority. Take Your Choice The other day President Eisenhower wheeled out of his office the big globe he once gave former President Truman, which Mr. Truman in turn presented to him as an inaugural gift. In its place he put a smaller globe he got from fellow members of the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. You can put a lot of interpretations on a move like that. It may mean Mr. Eisenhower wants to get rid of the last visible sign of the Truman administration. Possibly, he just wishes to honor his Georgia golfing pals. After all, he didn't toss the old globe out. He gave it to Sherman Adams, his assistant. It could be, too, that he wants more room for practice putting on the office carpet. Or maybe the whole thing is symbolic — the President's recognition that the world is still shrinking. The chances are we'll never know. Views of Others Without Vocation Pay Many Republican congressmen, newspapers and columnists had a field day with the discovery that 215 former Truman administration officials, Including most of the cabinet, had picked up fat "bonus" checks ranging up to about $7,000 when they left their offices to make way for the incoming administration. It was fun of course to point out that Charles F. Brannan drew the largest check for accrued leave because he had no need for vacations as he could always find relaxation down on the nation's forms, or politicking against Joe McCarthy in Wisconsin's vacatlonland. The 215 who each had over $1,000 worth of unused vacation coming drew over $700,000. According to the General Accounting office, which Is an agency of Congress and the last word on thn legality of federal expenditures, the departing officials were within their rights and justified under the law. Since it is legal we .should stop baiting the individual Democrats and change the law. The cash Instead of leave business has grown into a racket. It has become the practice for some em- ployes In special departments to resign occasionally, pick up their unused-leave cash, and return to the payroll 'the followjrte.:rnornlng. Vacations are allowed f-or the purpose of protecting the workers' health and should be used for that purpose or surrendered. Likewise sick leave time should be granted only for sickness and upon the snme terms as sickness Insurance is paid. The fellow who is borrowing money to pay federal income taxes certainly resents seeing a millionaire cabinet member walk off with a vacation bonus which is several times the amount of the borrower's income tax. Congress should repeal this feature of the law. —Green Bay (Wls.) Press-Gazette. There Are Now Five, Omar Estimates based on the proposed budget for fiscal 1954 indicate that the government will turn about $530,000,000 over to the individual states in Federal aid for highway construction. This appears to be a lot of money and in that respect, the appearance. is not deceiving. What is deceiving, however, is the phrase, "Federal aid." For during the same period that the government will be "giving" the states $530,000,000 it will be taking more thnn twice that amount from them via its tax on each gallon of gasoline sold. This provides one more Illustration of the fact that Omar Ibn AlHnlif was one short when he wrote, "Four things come not back; the spoken word, the sped arrow, time past, the neglected opportunity." But then he hardly could have been expected to know about "money sent to Washington" when he was the toast of the Middle East back in the year 625 A. D. —Nashville Banner. SO THEY SAY All this talk about government secrets Is a lot of hokum. — Elder Statesman Bernard Baruch, before the Senate Banking Committee. * * * Senator McCarthy reminds me of the college senior writing a test paper — he can't distinguish between evidence and snrmisal, fact and fiction. — Hunter College president Dr. Oeorge N, Schuster, who, Senator McCarthy says, failed to fire an alleged Communist teacher. * * * I have absolutely forbidden my own children from viewing programs of crime and horror. — Timothy O'Connor, Chicago police commissioner, on TV and Juvenile delinquency. * * * I hope they both get it. — Former President Truman on statehood for Hawaii and Alatk*.

The pair 'are the most coddled stars in Hollywood, with rights to choose their own days off, an early daily quitting schedule and a say- so on story points. Kilbride's even transported to and from the studio each day in a limousine—a courtesy even stars like Lana Turner, Loretta Young and Jimmy Stewart don't rate.

Few people remember, but Jerry played Mary Carr's son in the famous 1920 movie classic, "Over the Hill." Deanna Durbin, Hubby Charles David and her two children are London-bound to see Elizabeth crowned. They'll return to Hollywood in late summer but not for Deanna to make her TV debut, as has been rumored. "I've officially retired and movies and TV are out," slim and beautiful Deanna told me when I f.uizzed her about the video talk. "I'm one of those lucky people— I've found happiness with a wonderful guy and a family."

The other stars are Michele Morgan and Sylvana Pampanini, the Italian beauty who made the front pages by calling Clark Gable and Charles Boyer "too old" to be movie lovers. Dale Robertson vows that he's never met Rita Hayworth, and Rita pleads that she hasn't even seen him in a movie. So that should take care of rumors linking the stars.

The treaty creating NATO was a g r e e d to in Washington four years ago. General Eisenhower was made Sup r e m e Commander of NATO forces and set up his headquarters with 20 offi- Polcr Edson c(irs near Paris two years ago. And one year ago the NATO Council was set up. This Is the permanent, civilian secretariat under the British General Lord Ismay, whose job it is to coordinate the military production and support of the 14 NATO countries At the end of April, the full NATO Council of foreign, defense and finance ministers will meet again in Paris to set goals for the coming year. The fashionable thing to do now is to pour out buckets of gloom on the prospects for this meeting and to write NATO off as a dead or dying duck. This pessimism is deepened by the slowness of the six western European countries in ratifying the agreement to create a European Defense Force. EDF would be a kind of international army made up of French, Dutch, Belgian, Luxembourg, Italian find, ultimately, erman forces for the defense of western Europe. Prospects that the Eisenhower administration and the Republican Congress will cut appropriations for the foreign military aid program have not bolstered the hopes of either NATO or EDF. Premiers Paraded to Washington Since President Eisenhower took office there has been 1 the expected big parade of European government officials to Washington. In addition to the prime ministers of Britam, France, and now Germany, the foreign ministers of Britain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands have been around to learn what they could. From NATO itself have come Britain's Lord Ismay and Field Marshal Lord Montgomery, dep- p u t y NATO commanrjer-in-chief, and U. S. Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther, who was General Eisenhower's first chief of staff and how holds the Job under General Ridgway. This is a formidable lobby. What assurances its members have received, individually or collectively, on specific amounts of continued American aid, could probably be carried back home In one mess kit. The role of the new American officials in these conferences has been largely that of listeners. This was the role of Secretary ol State John Foster Dulles and Mutual Security Administrator Harold Stassen when they went to Europe right after inauguration. The advance billing on this trip' was that they would bawl out the Europeans for not doing more about their own defenses. The press notices they received after visiting each European capital indicated they did no such thing. For the fact is that the new administration's policy on foreign aid had not been formed then and has not been formed yet. It will not be "finalized," as they say in Washington, until after the NATO Council meeting in Paris. And the U. S. budget figure to back up this program will not be deter- Sunday School Lesson — < -/ By W. Written for NEA SprricB E. Gllroj, O. D. Conversion, as the word implies, means a turning about. And no turning about was ever more complete than that in which Saint Paul turned from his persecuting zeal of threats against the disciples of the Lord (Acts 9: 1), to become a Christian disciple himself. Sudden conversions, strange as they may seem, have been by no means rare. In many instances, as I think was true in the conversion of Saint Paul, they are not as sudden as they seem to be. Through the experience of sudden conversion may be very real and may have a clear evidence of its determining cause. The conversion of Saint Paul as he himself has vividly described it in Acts 22, took place upon the road to Damascus. He was going there to persecute the Christians. It was accompanied by a challenging voice and blindness. But I think his conversion really began on the day he stood guarding the garments of those who stoned Stephen to death (Acts 7:58). In the story of Paul's conversion lie was "kicking against the pricks." But what was pricking him and making him all the more furious in his resistance? It was the voice of conscience. Could one versed in the Hebrew Scriptures who a few years later was to write so eloquently of divine and brotherly love, see a man who was bclnfi stoned to dentil while prtiyins for forgiveness for his enemies and crying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit," and not hear a voice of challenge In his heart? That I think was when the conversion of Paul *.„. as sudden as it is real and complete, . Often it has come through crucial .or enlightening experience which has changed one's views and attitude. It is as If one has always lived In a valley. Then one day climbing a mountain peak, he suddenly sees a world that he has never known before. There can be peaks on which the atmosphere of the soul may be completely changed. Nor are complete conversions either sudden or through some long process, as strange and unexplaln- able as they may seem. Underlying such conversions, is usually a conscientious attitude. In these cases conversion means a change of association and allegiance father than a change from a life of sin to a life of righteousness. Paul said that he had lived in all good conscience all his life. Others called his Christian way heresy (Acts 24:14). but he called it itlli worshipping the God of his fathers. Conversion was an emergence Into what he considered a further and better way. In all such conversion* there is an experience, strange as It may seem to others, that brings spiritual satisfaction, sin, insincerity, and untruth are the only enemies of the soul.

Critics Eager to Publicize The i In the meantime, it is con ered fantastic to think that Pr dent Elsenhower will pull the out from under his old comm at NATO, though that is what lationlst economizers would lik There is of course some b for much of the criticism that been heaped on NATO. But it had poor press relations. Then more eagerness to publicize bad in it than the good. NATO has built 126 new milit air bases in Western Europe. * 124 that were all right got' no p licity. The two that were ba constructed became internatio scandals. When only half of NATO's bud was financed last fall, this \ heralded as a breakdown, when the other half of the mo was supplied this spring, planned, the appropriation \ barely mentioned. And so the fortunes of NA worse. What is generally ov looked in this popular wave of ticism is that four years ago th was no defense of Western Euro at all. Today there is twice much as there was two years a This is not to infer that NA is over its hump. The next 1 years may be tougher than the 1 four. It will be 18 months af the EDF treaty is ratified bef German troops can be made effective part of Western Europe defense. In this period criticism may a useful goad. But obstruction! will only play into Commun hands. For the Russian plan n seems to include the creation o split between the United States a its Western European allies.

Joe needed at least two club tricks to make his contract, so ie next led the ten of clubs and let it ride for a finesse. East won with the king of clubs and returned his last spade. Now West could take three spade tricks to defeat the contract. You have the same evidence that was available to North. As you can see, the spade finesse was wrong, the club finesse was wrong, and West did make a fine defensive play. Nevertheless, Joe would have made his contract if he had played the hand properly. Do you see how? South can do nothing about the first trick. When East leads the eight of spades at the second trick, however. South should not play the queen. Instead he should finesse the nine! This play limits the defenders to three spade tricks no matter what they do. South can well affort to lose three spades and a club. His actual play gave the opponents a ;otal of four spades and a club — and South could not afford that. • Guess the Word HORIZONTAL 1" and near" 4 " thee well" 8 " in peace" same" 13 Man's name 14 Great Lake 15 Greek letter 16 Oil used on leather 18 Chooses 20 Intermediate 21 Liner " de France" 22 Scent 24 Singing voice 26 Nested boxes 27 "Bo or " 30 Deed 32 Morals 34 Attempters 35 "Equal " 36 Dry, as wine 37 Beaks 1 39 "Time and 40 "Too little and too — -" 41 "Brought down a " 42 Automaton 45 Keeper o! daily records' 49 Outbreaks, as of, disease 51 "A spelling 52 " of Two Cities" 53 Boy's name 54 Meadow 55 Building extensions 56 Hireling 57 "To Is . human" VE 1 "Fr 2Pok 3Tru 4"Dc me 5"Ai 6"Fo 7 Ad] suff 8 "Be to t die 9Lov lOZio 11 He; 17 "A ope (sla 19 Gir i i a 15 IS ti if 3* ^ % ii >ff W SI iS RTICAL ends or cr stake e to life in" d and r no good r ective x '' tter he \ ionary" egod n (var.)
