THE SUN, BALTIMORE. SUNDAY MORNING. AUGUST 22. 1954 AEG BUILDING J)UE IN STATE New Maryland Structure Is Expected For Agency BOWERS GIVEN HOSPITAL POST Named Chief Of Women's To Succeed Dr. Stout PAGE 24 Washington Bureau of The Sun Washington, Aug. 21 A new building to house the Atomic Energy Commission under the recently enacted Lease-Purchase Act is expected to be located in Maryland. The Public "Works Committee rf the House and Senate recently approved authority for the new building at executive session. The fiction of the two committees, it was said, is based on economy. The building is estimated to cost $9,600,000 and will house the entire personnel of the A EC. It was reported today that Lewis L. Strauss, chairman of the AEC, has been in touch with the Maryland State Planning Commission in regard to the location of the new building in either Montgomery or Prince Georges count. Fallon Sees Strauss It also was reported today that Representative Fallon recently discussed the matter personally vith Mr. Strauss in behalf of getting the AEC headquarters located in the State. ,The two committees had backing of the subcommittee on independent offices of the appropria tion committee. Representative John Phillips (R., Cal.) is chairman of the subcommittee. In a memorandum to Representative Dondero R., Mich.), chairman of the House Public Works Committee, Mr. Phillips pointed out that "this is a matter of great interest and importance to the Committee on Appropriations. I think it might be considered the most important item on the list handed you by the General Services Administration." Located In Washington Mr. Phillips said "the Atomic Energy Commission is presently located in a number of buildings in Washington. The space is not adequate; the buildings are separated, and the securities measures difficult." Representative Fallon communicated with the State Planning Commission and conveyed the interest of Chairman Strauss in locating the building in nearby Maryland. I. Alvin Pasarew, director of the commission in a letter to Mr. Fallon indicated the commission's interest. Mr. Pasarew wrote Fallon that ''the commission has welcomed every opportunity to be of assist ance to the Federal Government in planning the location of Federal facilities in the various sections of the State." Reports that the AEC may be located in Maryland brought letters from residents giving the impression that the community in which it is located might fear an; explosion. Fallon explained to these communications that no explosives are housed in the head-quart ersoMhejEC: Therien Assault Suspect Charged A 25-j ear-old Newark (N.J.) laborer yesterday was charged with shooting with intent to kill Patrolman Wallace B.
