So the question is, what effect will ; the .''.leak'.' have which betrayed Arrieri;can suspicion of Soviet spying to the • world.? On first thought it might seem • a great pity that s6me congressman • passed along the information from :i I closed session of the Joint Congres- ! sional Committee on Atomic .Energy. \ There is no comfort in the knowl- -,'; o.'Jgs "that international discussion . of • this grave matter has to be devious and deceptive, at the present lime. Hut • that seems to be the way it is. Now, if Kussia does possess secret information on the bomb, we have 'lost the '. slight advantage oi' keeping secret from Russia quv knowledge that these se'. crcts' were out. . It is too soon to say whether this turn jof events will work to our di.sad- , vantage in further negotiations. \Vu ; may have turned iip our hole card. Qn the other hand, this leak may serve to : - put Soviet, tactics in a different' light. Russia's negotiators have been, _ firm in their insistence that discussion •« of international atomic energy control I be mady part of discussions bf general /disarmament. Disarmament is a' cpm- ; plicated' 'matter ""and, with '. Russia's ' iamiliar habit of" .Iiair-sjilittiiig, the talks might drag- on and on.' There was -' ?

But". the suspicion will be shared not only : by. the United States bu : t by other UN ; members. This might at' least' alter ilic spirit of further- ntoinic discii.s- .sioii. In the nu'iintimc, the world will Ijo wondering iiii.xiously how much this new knowledge, if Russian scientists have it, Jia.s advanced them toward construction of an atomic-energy weajwn. The iron ciirliiin is still down, of course. But several important pre- 'iiminnry facts are already known. 'Russia lias )>ecn producing radium for 25 years. Russia built the first cyclotron in Kuropc in 1931. Soviet scientists have been studying the behavior of the uranium atom under bombardment, since lfl-10. They have also done research in co.smic ray energy, and last year's Stalin j'rixe went to a Professor 'Zhdanov for splitting the atomic nuclei ol 1 hromium and silver with cosmic rays. Since the bombing of Hiroshima scientists have been lelliiitc us that it is only a question of lime until other nations have atomic weapons.' Some of them have said this would happen "in five ynjirti—perhaps less." The likelihood that Russia now has some of the important data on our successful work •brings the "perhaps less" a little closer. This possible imminence is disturbing.

In more ways than one, the shor( mid snappy O'Daniel bill may be considered the gentlest of (lie lot, .strange as that may seem.
