PAGE TWO BLYTHKVTLI.E (ARK.) COURIER MONDAY, APRIL 18, 195« A-Commission Rejoins On Lax Security Charge WASHINGTON (NEA) — The U. | partially In error. There Is of course 8. Atomic Energy Commission, through its Director of Information Services, Morse Salisbury, issued the following statement regarding the NEA Service Albuquerque dispatches entitled "We're Giving Away Our Atomic Secrets:" "Throuc.h the dispatches stated that their discoveries were discussed with responsible officials, Reporters Douglas Larsen and Doyle Kline did not hold any such discussions with AEC officials. "The articles were reviewed by classification officers of the AEC after they had been Issued to clients and were found to contain no mnt- ter classified under the Atomic Energy Act. Any impression that they give instances of revelation of atomic secrets Is erroneous. "The statement in the editorial note on the first of the series that there is no machinery for -clearance no censorship on such material or any other material in peacetime There is machinery for review of such material from a security viewpoint available to any editor correspondent who wishes to use it. "The AEC management at Albuquerque and Jn Washington does not believe there is security laxity on the part of AEG or contractor personnel. If any evidence of such laxity is turned up the AEC will be the first act on it, but the authors nine not supplied any such evidence to AEC security officials, thougn requested to do so. We wish to point out that what, appears to be loose talk may be anil often is talk by people who do not know any secret^ to give away—who are bragging or day dreaming or impressing the £irl friend. The reporters did not establish thnt those they talked with or censorship' of such matter is | were AEC project workers." Writers Defend Accuracy Of the 'Albuquerque Story' Bs Douglas Larsen and Doyle Kline We stand on the accuracy of our dispatches from Albuquerque entitled "We're giving away our atomic secrets." We made a conscientious efforl to report a shocking situation ot America's biggest Atomic weapon bases. We are convinced, that our sources were reliable and we handled the information honestly. The spokesman for the AEC now asserts that the Atomic Energy Commission "does not believe there is security laxity on the part oi the AEC or contractor personnel." These reporters are unable to share the complacency. Reports which have come to us in the last few days indicate others close to the situation feel as we do. From an officer: "The boys at Kirtland Paren Ah- Base were elated by the series." From a ranking security officer "Paren", non-AEC: "We need this kind of ammunition to strengthen our efforts at security." "It wasn't strong enoughl" Says editor Dim Burrows of the Albuquerque Tribune: "This situation of loose talk became so bad that I stopped going to functions attended by people connected with the Atomic projects. Invariably somebody would get ft litle drunk and start blabbing information that I felt, as an editor, I shouldn't have in my possession. Burrows, like these reporters, is surprised at the effort by the AEC to dismiss the dispatches by saylns that, the talk; is only "bragging or day dreaming" and there Is no evidence the talkers are atomic project employees. In our opinion this just has the effect of giving the Albuquerque tattle-tales an unofficial AEC 11- 'cense to continue their careless chatter. These reporters worked as a team on the Albuquerque series for approximately ten days, talking to 90 to 100 persons and discussing our findings \viih five competent non- AEC officials. As we stated In a note accompanying the series, we deliberately su- presscd some information and modified ccrtnln incidents at the express suggestion of .security officers. We were assured by security officers svt. Alburquerque that in doing we avoided the risk of tipping off a spy to .some overlooked detail. The AEC how confirms that the series did not violate security in any respect. We made certain that it. did not before we issued it. Again \ye say—we told the truth. We only wish the AEC were ais Interested In supressing the loose atomic chatter as it Is in denying incidents of which it has no firsthand knowledge.

Before police reserves reached the scene, an estimated 5.00 persons surged Into the People's Auditorium and smashed chairs, overturned tables and destroyed and scattered books an pamphlets Police Capt. Harry Penzin said the Friendship Council scheduled addresses by writer John Howard Lawson; William L. Patterson, secretary of the Civil Rights Congress; and Cedric Belfrage, editor of the National Guardian. New York. A banner In the hall read, "For International friendship, a meeting between Eisenhower and Malenkov.' A spokesman for the Invaders, Alex J. Zabrosky, said they were members of the American Friends of the Anti-Bolshcvi!: Block of Nations, which supports the underground in Iron Curtain countries. The scheduled meeting, delayed an hour and a half, was attended by about 50 persons. Pearl Hart, a Chicago woman lawyer, was the only speaker. The Friendship Council directors later adopted a resolution condemning the disorder os an example of "Fascist violence." Executive Director John Rossen reported.

This ia R clue to a treatment of breast cancers with both female and mnle sex hormones, which hns benefited a few women. It also is a long-range clue to prevention of human cancers. The experiments were described to science reporters starling a two- xveek tour, organized by the American Cancer Society, of cancer research centers in Denver, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Houston, Tex., and New Orleans. The hormone guilt Is Indicated in experiments by Dr. Robert Huseby, University of Colorado School of Medicine. Specifically, he said, the fault seems to be in the amounts nnd In- ler-plny of female and male sex hormones in the body. Female hormone stimulates the breast. Male hormone may protect the breast from too much femnle hormone. The balance of hormones may bo out of kilter in women who inter get breast cancer. Still other hormones may be involved. Sill! A Mystery Just what the mixup in hormone pattern may be is still n mystery. If the normal balance can he learned, blood tests might make it possihlu to learn Which women needed extra amounts of various hormones while young in order to prevent cancer later. Dr. HusKby is using combinations of mnle and female sex hormone on women -whose breast cancers can'L be cured by surgery. Three of nine women have benefited greatly, he said. The cancel' of one woman is apparently still gone seven years later. Five were not helped at nil. The results in another were doubtful. had existed for years. It is too early, he said, to tell whether this combination is a good treatment for cancer. The doses of hormones must be tailored to the individual Woman. Pentagon Readies 'Fact Sheet' for American POWs WASHINGTON i/p) — If some American soldiers return from Red prisoner of war camps vsxllting: like converts to communism, says the Defense*" Department, they probably are the victims of a "propaganda web."

IJM—An estimated 18.000 gunless hunters stalked rattlesnakes in the hills around Waynoka yesterday and brought back over a thousand alive. The hunt, which kicks off the "rattlesnake season" in Oklahoma, will be followed next week by the famous annual Okeene, Okla., rattler roundup, considered the daddy of them all. As certain as the coming of spring, each year thrill seekers and snake handlers from all over the nation pack the little Northwestern Oklahoma communities to track down rattlers. Dangerous Yee, but not as bad as it may sound. Rattle r-w i s e hunters who come within a country mile of their fangs in summer and fall know they can battle it out on even terms in April and come out ahead, alive, and usually unbitten. The snakes are emerging from a winter-long sleep and ore groggy. As Merlin Camp, secretary of the Waynoka Saddle Club, which sponsors the annual event, put it: "How would you feel after a good, long sleep? Like pretty much of a deadhead!"

The snakes are not injured, because hunt officials will pay only for the live variety—50 cents a pound. The Waynoka group then sells the snakes for the same prices to Arthur Jones, professional handler from Slidell, La., who resells them to zoos and antivenom plants. A ' f«w end up butchered and canned, considered rare delicacies In the "caviar set." Camp admitted frankly his digestion and rattlesnake steak don't get along. "It wouldn't be bad if you didn't know what you were eating," he confided. "Tastes like shrimp. But I guess I'm mentally allergic to them." The total snake take yesterday was expected to weigh close to 1,500 pounds. No one was bitten on the hunt- no one has been bitten for the seven years of hunts at Waynoka. Hunters usually bring back the rattlers in little boxes, but one hard-skinned wrangler brought in a few wrapped in the sleeves of his shirt. "Take the snakes," he told amazed officials, "but give me back my shirt.

Crash Victims Found KINGSTON, Jamaica Wl—Resell* workers have completed the re. covery of the bodies of all 13 vio- limes in the Caribbean airliner which crashed Into the sea oft Jamaica Friday. No state in the Union has legal- iized the so-called "mercy deaths" . in case of incurable sickness. by Felix Carney One of the chief problems of the television producer is the tremendous appetite for material this medium has. It gobbles up everything you have, and then asks for mare. Where a night club performer can use the same act all year, he can only use it once or twice on TV and it's* through. He can't go on using the same routine without fresh variations and new ideas. All this makes the writer one of the most important ffcl- lou's in the video scene. The new writing team headed by ioodman Ace enabled the sagging Milton Eerie show to spring right back up to a place among the most popular three or four shows. No matter how talented, a comedian (or any performer) is only as good as~his material he has to work with. Thinking along these lines, the big networks have been working hard to lure top writers into television. William Saroyan was one of t h e first. Hobert Sherwood, the playwright, has been signed by NBC-TV for a series ot dramas, and n p w William Faulkner, the Nobel Prize- winning novelist, has been pacted by CBS-TV as a television scripter. The entrance of these and other name writers into t h n TV field is just another sign :hat television has graduated nto rank as a first-class en- iertainment form. For those of you who have put off .get- :ing a set because you thought there weren't enough good programs, this means . . . buy iow!
