PAGE BIGHT BI/YTHEV1LT.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JULT 6, IMS Condon Was Banned From Atom Blasts He Was Only Congressman Not Invited By JERRY T. BAULCH WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Condon (D-Calii) said today he w a s banned from witnessing an atomic test on security grounds and, although since cleared, he wants to know "just how far is the bar in the political climate for liberals." All members of Ctngress were invited to witness one of the atomic explosions conducted In Nevada last May, and nearly 100 accepted. Condon said he went to Nevada 'on a special plane with other congressmen, and that; "The two men I talked to at Las Vegas told me I could not see the test because of security reasons. They said they could tell me nothing further, that I would have to see Gordon Dean, then chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC)." Condon said he was "outraged— I didn't understand what scared them." , Since returning to Washington, Condon continued In an interview, he has had two meetings with Dean, who retired June 30 as AEC chairman. He quoted Dean as say- Ing It was "some sort of mistake" Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton Open High Low Close July 3J97 3328 ~ "" Oct 3375 3401 Deo 33116 3421 Mch 3417 3444 3296 3314 1395 3415 3323 3400 3418 3444 New Orleans Cotton July Oct .

Will Raise Question Nevertheless, Condon said, he plans to raise the question on the house Door. "I am very concerned whether any executive agency can control the -.actions of congressmen," he said. "I also want to raise the Issue . whether hearsay charges which the people of my district are full acquainted with can cause me be denied my full rights as legislative representative and jus how far is the bar in the politica climate for liberals." Dean could not be reached fo comment, and AEC sources 1m mediately reached said they knew nothing of the incident. Condon quoted Dean as tellini him the FBI had a report on th' congressman. Condon said he as sumed it stemmed from "a rehas! of stale political charges thrown' when he ran for the state Legis lature in 848 and 1850 and when he ran for Congress last year. First Term The congressman, who is 40, is serving his first term in the House He served 'in the State Legislature from 1948 until last year. An attorney, he formerly was employed by the National Labor 'Relations Board and the Office of Price Administration. He enlisted In the Army as a private in 1942, serving until 1946 and becoming a staff sergeant. He saw combat In Germany and was awarded the Silver Star. At his home in Walnut Creek, Calif., his wife commented that "there's no more loyal patriot in • the country than my husband." Condon said that during his election campaigns, opponents accused him of connections with left-wing organizations. He said he was criticized because he served with law firm which represented the CIO in the San Francisco area and that he made a number of speeche; before trade unions "which people didn't appreciate." Condon said he has served attorney for the CIO steelworkera and oilworkers and some AFL unions. Condon said he argued In his conversations with Dean that he had never supported any Communist movement and that his whole record in Congress was utterly opposed to all things Communist. >4ew York Stocks i T and T mer Tobacco Anaconda Copper leth Steel hrysler oca-Cola Gen Electric Gen Motors Montgomery Ward N Y Central Int Harvester J C Penney Republic Steel Radio 1.91- LOST; 153 7 ;, 75 108'i BO' 58' 25 2P 71 = '1824',;, Betty McNeil, 41, of La Mesa, thi co-pilot of a 185-horsepower Beech- craft Bonanza, one of the most powerful aircraft in the race.

As of this writing, all 19 of thi 21 have been separated from gov eminent service or are on thci way out. Five of the 19 were for mer employes not In the state Do partment at the time. John W. Ford, Director of tin Office of Security In the State De partment, says that since Jan. 1 1947, there have been 485 case reported among State Departmen employes. It was only in 1947 thai Uie department began keeping rec ords. Many of these records are now Incomplete. Many of the Individu als have died, or retired or re signed from government service. When a separation took place, the record was closed, even if Incomplete. So there is no accurate check of the number of cases Etill in service. .Many Resignations It is announced, however, that since March 3, when Scott McLcod :ook over as Security Administrator, resignations have been cepted at the average of one a day. That would mean'over loo in four months. Mr. McLeod says that every al- !egati9n is now being investigated. He is realistic enough not to predict that the situation will ever be completely eradicated. McLeod, an ex-FBI man, now promises to run down every lead and not to Ignore such aliega- lons in the future. Now, for the irst time, President Eisenhower's lew security order of Apri 29 sets up the criteria which make it pos- ibe to separate a pervert from government service.
