'Monday Evening, June 3, 1957. No Radiation Casualties At Houston Plant A.EC Reports Pellets of Radioactive Materials Broken By Accident at M. W. Kellogg Company WASHINGTON (UP)—The Atomic Energy Commission has reported it found no evidence that anyone received damaging doses of radiation in an aotident involving radioactive isotopes at a South Houston, Tex., plant March 13. Pellets o.f radioactive material were broken by accident in the M.W. Kellogg Co. plant where they were packaged for industrial purposes. The AEC said this resulted in "severe contamination" of the plant laboratory. On May 2 the AEC suspended the firm's authority to use the isotopes, pending an investigation. The commission announced May 23 it was lifting the suspension in part. It was disclosed today that the AEC wrote Rep. Carl T. Durham (D-N.C.), chairman of the congressional Atomic Energy Committee, on May 22 to inform him it planned to lift the suspension partially. This letter said "according to the.most recent reports, all personnel directly involved in the contamination event and the homes of those individuals have been thoroughly decontaminated and only the laboratory -remains to be cleared." The letter said the radiation level in the homes was "relatively low." It said one person had a small blister which could have been a radiation burn but was already healing. "There has been no injury to personnel resulting from this incident," except for that possible burn, the letter said. "Personnel exposure records indicate external radiation exposures only slightly in excess of those which are permissible and none approached damaging levels," the letter said. MEMBERS OF ST.

Police were alerted to expect an onslaught of about 5,000 students but only a handful of banner waving demonstrators turned up at the embassy compound. A spokesman for the small group threatened a "new Taipei" when he was received by E.W. Selby, counsellor of the embassy, •ml C.F. Hill, embassy secretary. Selby, obviously angered by the threat, accused the Japanese of attempting to "blackmail" the embassy. He called in a Japanese jplainclolhosman and asked the student spokesman to repeat his threat. The student told the officer he •would have "no control" 'over what might happen if Britain continued the test series at Christmas Island.
