PAGE TWBLVI BLVTHKVILLE (ARK.) COU1UER NEWS TUESDAY, JULY 7, 1958 Probe Mentioned In Condon Question By CHARLES F. BARRETT WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Keating (R-NY) today suggested a congressional committe investigation to deter- mihe whether the Atomic Energy Commission acted properly in barring Rep. Condon (D-Calif.) from witnessing an atom bomb test. Rep. Price (D-I11), a member of the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee, termed the barring of the representative, which Condon said *as since rescinded, "very unfortunate." Price added, "I don't think there was any occasion for It." Condon, meanwhile, eaying the commission's action could mean "political suicide" to him unless it was thoroughly understood In his home district, announced he would take the House floor, probably this week, "to make a full and public statement as to my position." The California freshman maker said In an interview yes terday he was one of nearly 100 congressmen who accepted an invitation extended to all members of Congress to witness an atomic explosion in Nevada last May. He said two men met him at Las Vegas and "told me I could not see the test because of security reasons." "Mistake" Later, Condon said, former Chairman Gordon Dean of the Atomic Energy Commission admitted "some sort of mistake." Condon said, "My status with the commission now is the same as any other member of this Congress." Keating, a member of the House Judiciary Committee and chairman of & subcommittee which is investigating the Justice Department said in an Interview: "I suppose the executive branch has the power to exclude any member of the legislative bod from access to information of sensitive character. That happen all the time. None of us are giver all the information some execu tive branches have, nor would want to have it. "I would think that in this Epe cific case, Rep. Condon woui want to have an opportunity of a complete hearing before an ap proprlate committee of Congress to determine whether the executive branch acted properly in excluding him from this information. "It seems to me he Is entitled to such a hearing, if he requests it." AEC Silent The Atomic Energy Commission maintained a strict silence on the incident. White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty also declined comment, saying it is "entirely matter for the Atomic Energy Commission." He said the While House had no advance Information on the barring of Condon. Keating suggested any investigation could be conducted by the judiciary committee or a subcommittee, the atomic committee or a special committee appointed by House Speaker Martin (R-Mnss), who said he plans no inquiry unless Condon asks for one. Condon said he was "outraged" by the ban. He quoted Dean as saying the FBI had a report on him. Condon said he assumed this report stemmed from "a rehash of stale political charges." The lawmaker said his political Joes have accused him of connections with left-wing organizations. He said a law firm with which he formerly worked represented some unions considered left wing and he made some speeches "which people didn't appreciate." Condon said he "deiinitely" Is not sympathetic to any Communist or Communist front causes. The Herald Tribune dispatch, by Bert Andrews, said it was learned yesterday thtt the military had been checking on Condon. Andrews wrote that authoritative sources disclosed copies of the FBI file on Condon which was made available to the AEC have been under study by the military. The story also said: "Officials were close-mouthed about it, but this much is known: "The Navy at one point thought of canceling a ship-launching ceremony at which Rep. Condon wns the speaker because it had received the same information the AEC had. The Navy changed its mind." The launching of the minesweeper USS Bluebird went off on schedule May 11—six days after Condon had been told he could not see the atom test. The launching was at Mare Island Navy Yard at Vallejo, Calif., and Condon made the dedication speech. A well-informed source said that later the Navy notified the commandants of all naval distrcts that Condon "was, in effect, to be considered persona non grata." The Navy would not confirm the report yesterday. Such a notification ordinarily would be classified as secret. An Army source snkl there was "something in the mill" concern- ig Condon. The Herald Tribune story re- law- ferred to Condon's statement that 1 his status with the AEC Is now the same "as any other member of this Congress," and said: "This statement was contradicted subsequently by a source in a position to know, who said that Rep. Condon would still be barred from attending an atomic test. "This source said, incidentally, that the mere observation of an explosion was not involved, inasmuch as nothing could be learned from that, but that at such tests there have been briefings for those privileged to attend and that the briefings are considered top secret."
