James Stewart, chairman of the association Executive Committee", said he was writing the Atomic Energy Commission here, seeking a more "just" procedure patterned after the civil conns which would remove the "slgma" attached to scielltisls accused as "bad security risks." Two scientists here already have been denied access lo restricted atomic iufonnalion and been prohibited from working on any atomic project at O.lk nidge Involvlni; secret data. Both men were "suspended" following hearing before •k three-man local security board, ^•hlch an Oak nidge security officer said had been set. ii)i "In addition to the requirement of the la\v." composed of about 100 of the l.^po phy-sicisls and engineers h f -, "appreciate" tlie fact thai tlie.se hearings are held. They are Ihe only melhod by which an accused scieu- ttsl can clear himself. Stewart said.
