Tuesday Evening, May 21, 1957. Cosmic Radiation Seen As Menace to Mankind . WASHINGTON (UP)—If fallout doesn't get you maybe fall-in will. This possibility was hinted in scientific testimony, released today, before a House Appropriations subcommittee. Fallout is man-made radioactivity that descends from the atmosphere after atomic weapons tests.! Fall-in is cosmic radiation thatj pours into the atmosphere from tiie sun and outer space. Enough of either Kind can damage living things and their descendants. The scientific witnesses were testifying about the International Geophysical Year (IGY), a 500- million-dollar undertaking by some 70 nations to amass new information about the earth. Dr. Lloyd V. Berkner, one of the U.S. scientists prominently involved in IGY, mentioned fall- in—though he called it "fallout in reverse"—in a discussion of solar explosions. Labor Chiefs Launch Their Housecleaning Formulate "Guarantee Democratic Procedures" in Unions to Protect Against Corruption WASHINGTON (UP)—AFL-CIO leaders today appeared.ready to lay down new rules to safeguard union funds against the abuses charged up against Teamster President Dave Beck; The leaders also considered rules to "guarantee democratic procedures" in unions to protect them against corrupt officers. The sun manufactures energy in | The AFL-CIO's 25-member Ex- much the same way the H-bomb does. The process is nuclear fusion. Although the sun is a comparatively stable star, sometimes it mis behaves.

When solar eruptions happen, the sun ejects vast swarms of subatomic particles which engulf any thing in their path. suspend three small i.iternational unions accuse_d — like the giant Teamsters Union — of domination ' 'by corrupt influences. The three unioas—the Laundry magnetic i Workers, Distillery Workers and dends this totonSri-i Allied Industrial Workers - were tied particles toward the poles, relatively few particles get through to the surface at the equator. To do so they have to be extra powerful. But the flare of February, -95f>, was "so large." Berkner said, "that the cosmic rays from the zun were apparent even at the involved in abuses uncovered equator. "I might add," he said, "that the intensity of cosmic radiation as a result of that eruption was so high that, if maintained over a long period of time it might have an effect on bio'lORy on the earth. This was a very interesting observation. There are scientific •easons for believing that penetrating radiations fi'om space cause germ cell changes — affecting subsequent generations — and contribute to leukemia and bone cancer among the inhabitants of earth. Rays from the flare of February, K'5(i, were extremely penetrating.

The three unions with their lotal 170,000- worker membership were warned lasl February to Ihrow out officers involved in the abuses or face ouster from the AFL-CIO. The council's action against Beck v/as just one of a series of developments bhat made life look grim for the chubby labor boss: —The AFL-CIO action was expected to give a push to reported efforts by Teamster leaders to shove Beck out o( the Teamster; presidency. —Chairman John L.
