KLYTHEV1LLS (ARK.)' OOUHIER KEW8 FKIPAT, 'APSH, \ The Atomic Future III: Is U. S. Lagging Behind In Peaceful Atom Use? By RELMAN MORIN WASHINGTON (AP) — "The Europeans particularly are very sophisticated in the atomic energy field. They don't need our secrets to make progress." When he made this statement a recent speech, Dr. Lawrence Hafstad was director ot reac development in the Atomic Encn Commission. He went on to say: "Furthermore," they (Europe; nations) have a great deal mo incentive to be serious about thi fleW than we have In this cour try." Hafsted was not talking aboi •tomio weapons. He was talking about usln atomic energy Jor industrial pui poses. The United Slates Is only begii uing \a move in this field.

Charles Smith Makes A & M Dean's List in orgy Act was passed, the U.S. gov- J. ernment held a tight atomic mon- ir opoly. Now private Industry is preparing to spend millions on atomic energy applications. The results in may change the lace ol America, •e But is the United States keeping Is pace with other countries in pcacc- i- lul uses of the atom? ItussiiuiH Make Claims The European cable has been crackling with menniimfu! ww;-.— The Russians say they already •- have built reactors for oceangoing vessels, locomotives nnu automobiles. They hint at atomic devices for powering aircraft. Marsthnl Tito has announced Yugoslavia Is now "In a position directly to undertake work toward generating nuclear power." But the biggest step of nil, so far, appears to have been taken in Britain. Last month, the government announced a 10-year program for atom-generated electric power. It will spend 840 million dollars for 12 central power stations with a planned, capacity of nearly two million kilowatts. This action gives mPimlnK to Hafstad's observation that Europeans have "a great deal more incentive." Still floor! Iliislnras Because conventional electric power Ifi expensive In Britain. In the United states, it is cheap. Hence, if atom-generated electricity should cost 10 or 12 mills per kilowatt In Britain, that would still be good business. But the American, who IK probably paying 0 mills per kilowatt for ordinary electric power would ask, "Why pay twice that much?" Bcyom! that, the United States has vast reserves of coal, oil and natural ga.s: they nrc nonexistent or running thin in Britain. So national policy also provides more incentive. But the Implications go much further than mere domestic economics. They affect you, directly. In two ways. One comes under the heading of cold war. Look around the world. Moat nn- tions nre power-starved. In Asia, particularly, teeming millions ol people In China, India, Indonesia, Indochina and Korea arc .struggling to build Industries. But they have the problem of netting uowuv. The nnswcM- throughout the Par East—and no less the Middle East —may very welt be "the atom." Suppose the Russians come forward with offers to build nuclear reactors tor these nullons, to provide them with the original fissionable fuel, and the technicians to tench them? Powerful and practical propaganda or not? And In the field of international tviuUr. At thl.s point, few countries have the knowledge and laclliUus to build their own reactor^. They will shop for them in foreign nmrkuls us they do now for steel mills and alrcrutt, A spokesman for n New York engineiTlng linn, IJiibairk ami Wlicox, sultl recently (he compuny him hml more .tliuii 800 Inquiries from abroad about reactors. The figure, from one firm, gives .sonm Idea of the gathering momentum of the whole atom program. Next August. In Geneva, Switzerland, 84 nallons will meet In a great "atoms-for-pimce" conler- once. The United States plans to set up an actual reactor. Russia may tlo so also, although Moscow has not yet requested authorization from the .Swiss. From this conference may come the answer to the question: Who's ahead in the big mteniatioiui! atom Kwi-epMiikesV Dr. Hnfstud Im.i warned Unit the Europeans will be "very aggressive."

Coming In the early morning hours when most people were asleep, the earthquake threw villages, towns and cities Into panic. Church Destroyed The stately stone Roman Catholic church at Ozamis, built la Spain's occupation, was reported destroyed. Public buildings trembled and fell. Water spouted from broken mains. Electric lines snapped. Men, women and children scrambled for safety in the predawn darkness. A wharf at Ozamis was badly damaged, making It unserviceable. The government mobilized relief agencies to assist the stricken areas. Relief kitchens were established by the Red Cross. Dr. Feliclano Cruz said, "It is impossible to estimate the total cost of damage and destruction caused but It's certain to run into millions of pesos." A peso is worth 50 cents.
