THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.1 COUKTER NEWS PAGE NTNU New Security Order Covers All Workers By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON ,(AP) — How can a woman working In the Children's Bureau be a security risk? Or a man In the Pish and Wildlife Service? Both seem pretty far removed from anything that could hurt national security. But President Eisenhower's new security program covers every government worker In every agency. It is far from a complete blue- jrint, as it stands, for getting rid of government employes who are considered security risks. Details will have to be worked out. Some flaws may show up as it goes along, because Eisenhower did not lay down the same rigid rules for all agencies. He left much of the rulemaking up to them. So the test of what is a security risk in the Children's Bureau may not be the same as a test in an agency like the State or Defense Department, where a man who talked or drank too much might do national damage. Yet, Eisenhower said he wants uniformity in this program in order to treat all employes fairly and equally. He has ordered the Civil Service Commission to oversee the program in order lo get uniformity. But because of the varied nature of the agencies and their work, uniformity will hardly be achieved overnight. , At the very beginning of his new order Eisenhower said, ..•'Whereas the Interests of the 'Wnatlonal security require that all persons privileged to be employed in the departments and agencies of the government shall be reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and • character, and^of complete unswerving loyalty to the "U. S. . . ." Job For Agency Heads A man ought to be completely loyal but he might not be considered "reliable" from the standpoint of national security. It will be the job of agency heads to establish rules by which a man can be judged "reliable." That Is a word which may need some pre- I else definition. Eisenhower must stand ultimate responsibility for the success or failure of this program although it was prepared in the Justice Department. This is usual practice for any president since, with all his problems, he can't possibly be expert himself on every one of them but must rely on subordinates. ' One thing seems clear: that a number of government employes who could not be proved disloyal can, under the wide scope of this order, be fired as security risks. To Be Examined Again It is assumed that all those now in sensitive jobs have been fully investigated. The files of everyone of ihem now will be examined again to see whether, although their loyalty may be unquestioned, they could be considered security risks. Under this order a government employe who holds his job through competitive civil service examination must be given a hearing by a board created in his own agency if he's challenged as a security risk and if he has been in the government more than-, a year. If he got his Job through competitive examination but has been with the" government less than year, he can be fired on security grounds without a hearing. \Yhat about a man who got his job through appointment? If he has had it less than a year he can be sacked as a security risk without a hearing. That is, If he & not a veteran. If he's a veteran it's not clear at this time whether he will get a hearing. If he's an appointed man and in his job over a year, it's still an unsettled question whether Ijp can be fired outright as a security, risk without a hearing. Scientists Committee Begins Study Of National Bureau of Standards WASHINGTON (ff>)—A committee of scientists yesterday began a study of the National Bureau of Standards at the request of Secretary of Commerce Weeks' who asked a "thorough, objective and impartial" examination of its operations. The nine-man committee, whose members were appointed by various scientific organizations, met in Weeks 'office. The committee is headed by Dr. M. J. Kelly of Bell Telephone Laboratories, representing the National Academy ol I Sciences. Weeks acted at the height of a controversy over his decision to force Dr. A. V. Astin, director of the standards bureau to resign. There had been a disagreement between the bureau and Weeks over the bureau's testing of a battery addition. Weeks said he felt the bureau had not been "sufficiently objective" in reaching a finding that the additive, claimed to rejuvenate worn out storage batteries, was of little or no felue. Astln resigned effective April 18 but on April n Weeks asked Astin to stay on as director until the evaluation committee had completed its work. There had been criticism among scientists of the action against A6- tin and threat of mass resignations from the bureau.

Judge Rules Both Parents Must Consent To Change In Child's Religious Affiliation NEW YORK (Si— A Judge nays a 4-year-old child's religious affiliation cannot be changed unless both parents consent. In a case described as unprecedented in New York courts, Jus- lice Jacob Panken, ruled Tuesday in children's court that Dennis Glavis, 4, is Jewish, not Roman Catholic. Panken said the boy shortly after birth was circumcised according to the tenets of the Jewish religion, with the consent of both parents. Last September Uie father had the boy baptized into the Roman Catholic church, but the Judge said this was done without the mother's consent. The justice added that since the boy is not old enough to reason for himself, the Jewish circumcision, which took place first, must take precedence over the baptism. Panken's ruling was, In effect, a decision against the boy's father, John Glavis, 50, who had sought to have the child removed from a Jewish foster home. ' Glavis is a member of the Greek Catholic church, which recognized the Pope in Rome as the head ol Christendom. His wife Gertrude, 39, is Jewish. The two are not liv- ing together. ~The father started the current action after the court last January found him guilty of neglect and ordered' the child sent to a foster home. New York state law provides that the court must determine ft child's religion before selecting a foster home. Panken said the father in January declared he considered the boy Jewish. The judge added that Glavis did not mention the baptism until he petitioned to have Dennis removed from the foster home. Panken said the mother .was in MEN WA N T E D BUICK MOTOR DIVISION Leith Street, Flint, Michigan Hiring 6 days a week 8:00 A.M. to 5:OO P.M.
