PAGE FOURTH* BLYTHEVILL1 (ARK,)' COURIER NEWS APRIL «, 19M The Atomic Future IV; American Industry to Aid AEC In Developing Atom for Peace By KJ'LMAN MOftIN WASHINGTON (AP) — An important engagement was announced 'here recently. It gave public .notice that from now on American industry will be "going steady" with the United States government. They have been joined together under the new Atomic Energy Act to develop peaceful, industrial uses for the atom. A report issued with tiie new Jaw staves that one of Us aims is '"'encouraging flourishing research and development programs under both government and private auspices." Whether the engagement will ripen Into a happy and harmonious marriage remains to be seen. Some close observers are a little skeptical. Atomic energy was a government monopoly from the middle of World War II until late lust year. Then the new law was written, permitting private capital to make use of atomic energy. Retains Authority The Atomic Energy Commission, however, retains authority: 1. Over wnu geU a license. 2. What portions of hitherto secret information necessary to build and operate a reactor shall be declassified. 3. Who gcU "limited access" clearance neecssary to receive this information. 4. To release fissionable material that will originally 'fuel the privately owned reactors, fix the price, and fix the price of any Plutonium the government inter buys from private industry. Any one of these could be tourcfi of friction between the government nnd the private operator. For instance, In that extraordinarily complicated area of declassifying information. Here are portions of the testimony before the Joint Congressional Committee on Atomic Energy by Dr. James Beckcrlcy, a physicist formerly with the AEC, now with a Connecticut engineer- Ing firm: Will Weaken lift "Not only will our continued secrecy on nonweapons matters faf to affect the Russian rate of stockpiling of fissionable and fission and fusion weapons, but it will Weaken our national strength by reducing Jur exploitation of thi.s new source ot energy. "I, believe that adding control of notiweapons information does not increase bur national security. But, as time goes by, has the effect of reducing our national atomic strength." AEC officials say they arc working to declassify atomic information as rapidly as possible consistent with national security. Bottle Starts Blaze CONWAY, Ark. Ml — R, T. Cole, ft. water distributor, snys a bottle of water started a fire in his home causing damages estimated at $75. He says the bottle noted as a magnifying lens for the sun. Now take the question of issuing licenses. Sen. Anderson (D-NM), chairman of the joint congressional committee, is convinced the AEC wants to retain control over this fit-Id. "The one thing that emerged from Uie hearings before our committee," he said, "wa<3 that thn AEC does not want to «ive out licenses. The situation as it stands tocttty ts one ot complete dominn- tion by the commission. "We're going to fight H to the last ditch." However, Sen. Hickenlooper (R- lowti), also a member of the joint committee, said lie had no such impression. $12 HIHIon Spent The government has spent 12 billion dollars on atomic development. Some information, and some .special nuclear materials, will now be made available to private industry. "But," said Rep. Holifield (D- Calif), a member of the Joint committee, "we are not noinff to let anybody get a stranglehold on industrial uses of atomic energy until a true uompelUive situation exists." The field of patents also raises some intricate problems between government and private Industry. There arc many other potential points of serious dispute. The basic approach of government is different from that of private Industry. Government can afford to gamble, take b!g risks in tbi.s extremely cosily field. Industry must move more cautiously, try to insure a return on the millions it will .spend. Standing between government and Industry, as a "watchdog," is tho JS-mnn joint congressional committee, composed of nine rcji- msuntnllves from each House, ami bipartisan in makeup. Its executive director, Cor bin Allai'dlce, says: "I Uilnk It has within Its grasp the potentialities of hylpiiiK this industry really to Ret off to a good start and of protecting the interests of both the public and the industrial community," Heads Buick Sales Force Frank Ellis has recently been promoted to the po Hi on of Sales Mntt.igcr nt l,iin«s on-Mc Waters Itiih-k Cu.
